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.

"Don't move." She shook her head, moving back to her counter to find more supplies. This Dohyun man wouldn't know that she was a doctor...he couldn't remember their meeting at all. "You need to have those stitches redone. Alright?"

"You're...not going to call security on me, are you?" He asked warily, knowing that the last few times he had woken from Seki's nights out he had been in far more trouble than he expected.

"Why would I call security on you, you've not done anything illegal or wrong." She shook her head, fingers brushing over the tools. "Now take off your shirt so I can stitch this again. And don't fall all over my floor again, alright?"

"I haven't?" He was genuinely surprised, looking up to her in a mixture of confusion and relief. "That's...surprising. I'm not used to waking up and finding that I haven't slept with a mobster's wife or stolen someone's clothes again." He added without thinking, pulling his shirt gingerly from his body. It was still a little too tight for his liking, made twice as uncomfortable by the blood.

"I mean, he was a little flirty, but he wasn't terrible. Just a little...watchy." She flushed, shaing her head and tucking her hair behind her ear. She still had no idea why he stared at her so much. As he pulled the shirt off, she felt her breath leave her once again and she flushed softly, turning away quickly to work on finishing preparing the stitch him again. "So breathe easy, Mr. Cha, I'm not sending you over to security. I have no reason to."

"I have to say, you're...really calm for someone who just met two different personalities living in the same headspace." He offered with a weak chuckle, still half-convinced that the guards would come in at any moment. "Seki has a fondness for things he finds beautiful. Art and clothes, he'll buy or take as he sees fit. If he was staring...he probably thought of you as beautiful, as well." Then, after a moment, not wanting to offend her by the way he had phrased it, he added, "Honestly...I can see why he would. If you don't mind my saying."

"Why wouldnt I be calm?" She pointed to the name tag on her jacket, showing that she was a psychiatrist in the hospital. She shook her head, pulling up the chair next to him again before moving her fingers to his side, working at cleaning the wound once again. As she was working she didn't focus on his words. Until she realized he'd called her beautiful. She froze, cheeks flushing as she looked up at him. "B...beautiful..?"

Hissing as he felt her work, he tried not to grimace at the new waves of pain as he met her eyes with a weak smile. "You're very beautiful, ahjumma." He assured her. "It's no wonder he was staring."

Her hands froze at his words. She looked up at him, heart pounding at his words as her cheeks flushed. She took a deep breath, shaking her head. "No...wonder..? I mean...I've never...I"m not... I..." She trailed off, shaking her head again as she moved to numb the area of the wound. "Are you sure you're not just crazy, ahjussi?"

"I know I'm crazy. But what goes on inside of my head has nothing to do with my eyesight." He shook his head with a soft chuckle. "So...a psychiatrist is stitching up a wound from a knife fight I don't remember having. Is this your normal Friday night?"

"My normal friday afternoon is helping patients here with their psych evals and treatment. Not watching a knife fight in a bar and then being followed by a stranger that--" she cut off. Seki had mentioned something about falling...falling for something. She shook her head. "A stranger that told me the reason he got in the fight was because he wanted to flirt with me."

Dec 29, 2017, 12:51am

"That was his reasoning?" He gave soft chuckle, shaking his head. "That's new. I'm not sure he's as dangerous as he wants everyone to believe...he has a soft spot for women and children. He won't put either into danger."

She nodded, giving a soft, weak laugh. "He was on his way to come talk to me and the man started a fight apparently. I don't...care anything about the flirting or the fight but, as a doctor, I couldn't let him keep bleeding."

"You have a kind heart." He observed with a soft laugh of his own. "And then I woke up and threw a wrench into his evening. I'm sure I'll pay for this later..." He was starting to fear ever going to sleep in case Seki set another trap for him. Despite his comfort in talking about this with a near-stranger, he was careful to hide his fear that one day he might never wake up...

"A kind heart? I'm only doing my job, ahjussi." She shook her head, looking up at him with a small smile, starting her work stitching him after the area was numbed. "So...Shin Seki-si..is the man you become when you, what...want a little violence?"

"I don't know why he's here, honestly." He shook his head with a sigh. "I don't want violence--it's not in my nature. I don't have any latent desire to let loose or be wild...I'm not sure why he's so resentful of me, either."

"It's probably...ust that you're so boring compared to him." Her cheeks burned and she looked up at him, stopping the stitches for a moment. "I mean...he seems much more...outgoing than you, but I don't know either of you well at all."
+

Dec 30, 2017, 12:41am

"Boring? You've spoken to me for five minutes." He couldn't keep from laughing softly, shaking his head. "He is outgoing. But my being reserved isn't...really by my choice." With Seki, Perry, and Yona to worry about...he didn't have much time to have his own life. "I'm...damage control."

"And five minutes with Shin Seki was more exciting than five minutes with you, ahjussi." She laughed weakly, shaking her head. As she heard the last, she set back to work on the wound on his side. "Damage control...? That doesn't seem like a very pleasant life you have..."
+
-
Dec 30, 2017, 10:07am

"It's not. Between that and my job, I'm exhausted." He shook his head. "I like excitement as much as anyone else, but between Seki trying to get me killed, crazy trysts, rice cooker bombs...and working from before dawn to after sunset on top of everything, it's not something I can afford."
