The Rabbit Hole
NoWealthNoRuin
A nightclub skirting the neighborhood between the rougher side of town and the classier neighborhoods. The main bar and dance floor is located in the front, with a quieter private lounge in the back where the finer points of Himchan's job are delegated to the other members of the group. Any revenue built by the club is honestly made, though it does house one of the most powerful mob families in the city.

"Seki is here for a reason that would be beneficial to you. They all are. You created them for a reason." She smiled softly, looking up at him again. "Maybe they just need someone that wants to listen and help, not ignore and destroy...."

"Name your price." The words left his lips before he could stop them, surprising himself. But it was the most logical choice to make. She was the first to even suggest working with his headmates, rather than trying to rid himself of them. To see them as something more than symptoms to eradicate. "Whatever you want, I'll pay."

She tensed at his words, eyes widening. If she gave him some crazy number, could he really pay it? He was so certain....Just who was this man? After a moment, she found her voice though it trembled slightly. "You...I...I'm still a resident, ahjussi. I'm not qualified to be a...a personal doctor and I wouldn't even know the first step of treating....treating you."

"What resources would you need? You're the only person I've met in my life I feel could be capable of treating me. Books, facilities...I know that you wouldn't lose your job here; it would be waiting for you as soon as you return. Two phone calls is all I need to make the arrangements." He assured her in perfect confidence. One call to the head of the hospital, and another to his bank to transfer funds. "Would you rather be paid weekly? Monthly? Bi-monthly?"

She stood, facing him as she shook her head again, hair falling in her eyes. "You really don't know what you're asking for. I can't be your doctor. I'm not capable of it, alright? I haven't had the training, I don't even know how to handle someone with DID. You'll have to find someone else." She glanced at the clock. "I..have to get back to work, it was nice to meet you." Giving a small bow, she moved to the door and walked out without another word.

"Think about it?" He called after her, standing and jogging a little to catch up and grasping her arm lightly to get her attention. "Please. I'm...I'm desperate. You've seen that trying to treat myself isn't working, and no one I've met has even considered the help I need instead of the help they want to get paid for. One of these days, I'm scared I'll end up in trouble I can't get out of...or worse, that Seki will shut me out for good like he keeps threatening to do. Please, doctor. Please consider it." He was far too proud to beg, he thought in passing, but this was something he couldn't avoid. He could endure a little humiliation in the wake of some solution that might actually work.

She stopped walking, startled by the hand on her arm. As she turned back to face him, saw the urgency, felt his grip, heard his voice, she found herself considering the offer. But even if she wanted to help him, she wouldn't even know how to start.. His hand was so warm on her arm...she could feel it through her lab coat. With a soft flush, she shook her head again. "I can't. I wouldn't even know how to help you, ahjussi... I can't do it. I'm sorry." Giving another small bow, she shook her head, pulling her arm free. "I really...really have to get to work."

(Think he should call the head of the hospital and put her on a forced leave of absence? Like...make her have no other choice but to work with him...? XD)

((He's just desperate enough to try it. XD I like it. ))

"...Okay." He sighed, releasing her arm as he took a step back, not wanting her to feel uncomfortable from his presence. The fear, the worry was clear in his every movement, running his fingers through his hair and loosening it from the gel Seki had used to push it back. He had an idea to get her to agree...but it was a little underhanded. Well, very underhanded, if he were totally honest with himself. But...if he provided twice the pay she got from the hospital...with every amenity she could want or need...wouldn't that make up for his rash decision?

Giving another small bow as he released her, she offered a weak smile. "I'm sure you'll find a doctor that can help you. But it's just not me, ahjussi. You'll do well. Let me...let me know when you're all cured, alright?" With another weak smile and a deep bow, she turned back down the hallway.

"I hope I can." He mumbled without thinking, bowing in return at her farewell. He waited until he was out of earshot before dialing Manager Kang. He needed a little help with this...and he hoped she would forgive him for pulling a few strings...

(wanna wobbly to maybe the next day when she finds out she's been put on leave. She can track down his house, nearly break his door down and be pissed... XD)

((Sure. XDD))

Dohyun was more than nervous as he paced around his house. He had put the young doctor on leave, all but forcing her to take the job he had offered her...if she wasn't too proud to find him to take the offer. Or she may just find him to yell at him. Either way, he wasn't sure that the plan would work out in his favor. He had to do this, he knew, running fingers through already messy hair. He couldn't avoid sleep forever, and from the threats Seki left on the last video he had left for him...waking up at all was a gift that would soon vanish altogether.

It had only been a day since the strange man had been to her hospital. In that day, she'd been called in by her superior, placed on a forced leave of absence with only an explanation of"the higher ups have better uses for you for the next few months" and she was informed during this time she would receive no pay. In her effort to figure out who the "higher ups" were, it took almost no time to find out it was Cha Dohyun behind it all. Of course it was..she was exhausted, she was furious, and she was going to kick his ass. After finding his house address, she made her way to the front door, ignoring the expensive mansion in favor of her rage. She knocked sharply on the door. "Dohyun-si!! Cha Donhyun, open the fucking door!"

Ah. She was furious. He was prepared for that. Gathering the paperwork that he had drawn up over the night, he opened the door. He hadn't slept, he looked as exhausted as he felt, and the tired, strained smile on his lips showed his nerves in the wake of her anger. "Before you tear me a new asshole," he greeted quickly, holding the papers between them in case she decided to swing, "Would you please come in and look this over? If you still disagree, I'll undo everything I've done, you have my word."

"Are. You. Serious?!" She was still yelling, taking the paper from his hands and tearing it in half. Her eyes were burning, her body felt like it was on fire in her rage. Throwing the papers in his face, she shook her head. "You're insane. You're the most insufferable, the most annoying, the most--" she cut off, shaking her head. "I'm not doing anything for you. I want you to stay the hell away from me. Don't you dare butt into my life again, got it?" She turned to start to walk back toward her beat up car down the driveway.

"I'll triple your salary." He called after her, voice betraying his desperation. "Room, board, groceries, whatever you need. Please, Rijin-si...if you walk away now, I'll cease to exist by the end of the month. He wants me dead. He said so himself." His voice was shaking, he found, clearing his throat and swallowing hard to give it more strength. "Please. You're my last hope."

She continued to walk for a moment before she heard the words, the desperation, the way his voice broke. She froze, knowing she'd regret this if she accepted his offer. After a long moment, she slowly turned back to face him. "...you really are insane." After another moment, she took a deep breath. "...I don't know what I'm doing, you realize that, don't you? I'll probably only make things worse." But he was so desperate for her help...

"I know I'm insane. But I also don't know where else to turn. Seki likes you. That means that maybe...maybe he'll work with you. I don't know what I'm doing either...but maybe we can figure it out. Money is no object to me...whatever it takes, I'll pay." He gave a weak smile, the wind ruffling his already messy hair as it blew across the courtyard.

Watching him for a long moment, she slowly nodded. "Okay...but I'm not taking whatever contract you typed up. We're going tow ork it together, agree and compromise. I'm not going to be a servant in your house, got it?" She frowned slightly.

"Got it." He visibly relaxed under her agreement, smile gaining a little strength. "Please, come in. Whatever you need will be taken care of, just name it and it's yours." He added, moving away from the doorway to allow her inside.
