The Rabbit Hole
NoWealthNoRuin HC's Territory
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.

As he filled the ug, she looked down for a moment before sliding it back. "I don't drink coffee." He was bragging about his funds? With a soft sigh, she watched him closely. "...will I be expected to stay here? Live here, I mean..?"

"It may be easier. Seki tends to get out when I fall asleep. And I can stay up for a while, but I can't hold him off forever. No matter how hard I try." He shook his head with a weary sigh. "But the choice will be yours, whether or not you want to stay. Tea?" He asked in response to her preference, taking a deep gulp of the bitter drink for himself.

Nodding, knowing that she could just as easily be in danger if the crazy, violent one really did like her. Still...he needed her here. "Okay...I expect you have a room I can use? Or will I be on your couch?" As she heard him mention tea, she nodded. "Tea would be great."

"There are nine other bedrooms in the house. Any of them that you like is yours." He assured her, filling the kettle on the counter and setting it on the stove. "I can call for a car to take you to your house to get what you would like to have here."

"What if it's your room that I like?" She raised a brow, wondering if he was really desperate enough to keep her there that he'd offer her the room... He really wanted her to stay. "I hven't agreed to this yet, you know. We have to figure things out, compromise. We have to make an agreement before I accept this whole...thing."

"We'd work something out. I'm not sure you'd like a room that's...as messy as mine." he lived in a state of near-perfect neatness, save for his room. He attempted to keep it neat, but with his work and the tasks of keeping his alters in check...it was more organized chaos than anything. "Right. What are your terms, then?"

She thought his words over carefully, nodding. After a moment, hearing the last, she gave a soft hum. "Room and board, obviously. And I'll agree to triple my current pay. I want paid vacation, should I need to take a day or two to see my family or for other personal reasons." She watched him closely. "How long are you expecting me to be here? To help you?"

"You have a deal." He took another deep drink of coffee, wishing it would wake him up more completely. At the last, his fingers brushed along the side of the mug, frowning. "I'm...not sure. As long as you need. I haven't found anything or anyone that will consistently work, so...we're playing this by ear."

"wait." She held up a finger, watching him closely. "I have one more demand before we make a contract." He didn't know how long she'd be there? That wasn't good at all....too much could happen in a long period of time...

"What do you need?" He asked, draining the last of his coffee before pouring another cup.

AS he poured himself another cup, she cleared her htroat. "We'll be spending a lot of time together. We'll be...sleeping in the same house, talking, getting closer -- it's a given. In the contract, I want it put in writing that you....and any of your personalities...won't develop feelings for me, fall in love with me. And...and I'll do the same. Otherwise there will be a separation fee, a fee for breaking the contract." Not that she thought either would happen, but ti was still a possibility.

Surprised that she would even think of anything like that, he thought her words over for a moment before nodding. "We have a deal. But I hope some kind of friendship isn't off the table?" He added with a small smile, attempting to straighten hair that hadn't seen a brush since he had lost control the night before and only succeeding in messing it further.

"Friendship is...complicated between a doctor and her patient." Still...a friendship wasn't completely unheard of. But she imagined she'd get along more with Shin Seki than with this man. After all, Cha Dohyun just made her angry right now... "We'll see. But don't count on it. I'm still mad at you."

"I know. I'm sorry for this. But...once you see how extreme this situation is...I hope you'll understand some of my desperation. Waking up to a video telling me that I will be torn out of my own mind so that he can live our life...it's chilling. I know he won't rest until he figures out how to kill me."

She tilted her head slightly, listening to his words before nodding. "Okay...make the contract. I'll look it over nad sign it if it looks good, alright?" After a moment, she cleared her throat. "..and let me see the video, alright?"

(Think Seki should hve done the whole "You stay away from my girl or I'll go after yours?" Thing? XD So Dohyun knows that Seki likes her already? XDD)

((Yeeeeeeeeees XD Dohyun is so worried already.))

Moving to the laptop sitting on the kitchen counter, he opened a fresh word document and started to type quickly, lining out the terms she had listed as well as a few he was throwing in for her benefit. She could easily terminate their contract early, he knew, and he wanted to be sure she had reason to stay around. "I'm...not sure you'll want to see it, but all right..."

Raising a brow, she watched him work. As he mentioned her not wanting to see the video, her brow furrowed. "Why woudln't I want to see it? It could potentially help with your treatment." Seeing him type much more than they discussed, she raised a brow. "Is there something I forgot for our contract?"

"I'm just...making sure that I'm covering all of our bases." He gave a chuckle that tried to hide his nerves, turning the screen so that she could see. "What do you think?"

Looking it over, she nodded slowly. "It...looks good." Her gaze moved back to his and she frowned. "But you didn't answer me. Why wouldn't i want to see the video Shin Seki left you...?"

"He...talks about you." He said at length, hoping she wouldn't be too uncomfortable with that fact. "Part of his threat was...that I should stay away from you."
