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.

She looked up at him in surprise as she heard him becmoe flustered, heard him fight around his words. With a small smile, she took a drink of her water again. "I"m very seductive? So...your place? Or mine?" She flashed him a wink before laughing softly. "God, you're fun to tease. Don't panic so much, it was only a joke. I'm...glad you find me attractive. I'd be upset if you didn't. Then you really would hve only been taking me out here as a thanks."

Giving a nervous laugh as he ducked his head, he wondered if blushing was enough of a redistribution of blood to be a hazard to his health. "I...told you that outside of the interrogation room, I'm bad at talking to people. Especially women. Especially pretty women." He addressed the coffee cup before him, unable to look up at her in the wake of his embarrassment.

She reached out, hand covering his to give it a comfortig squeeze before smiling once more. "You think I"m pretty, then?" It wasn't to tease him, she honestly wanted to know the answer. "You're cute when you blush, Detective. I'll try not to embarrass you anymore, alright?"

"I think you're very pretty." He admitted, looking up to her in surprise at the touch. "I...shouldn't be so easily embarrassed." He said at last, giving a small smile.

Giving his fingers another squeeze, she released his hand with a soft aology, smiling as the older woman approached them to take their order. She was surprised to see the owoman actually smile at her. Was it possible her act was paying off...even for this woman? With a light flush of her cheeks, she wondered why the woman suddenly seemed to trust her.

Ordering something simple and light--his usual order, as the older woman was happy to point out, he gestured for the woman across the table to order whatever she liked, trying to will his blush to disappear. Ahjumma was seeming to approve of her, he thought, watching the exchange with a small smile. He wondered what she must think of them.

She smiled as the older woman turned to him, chewing him out for not ordering for alady, huffing, she turned her attention to the girl. With a soft laugh, she gave her order, also something light.

Apologizing with a soft laugh, he thanked the older woman as he passed her their menus, face heating as he knew that she was teasing him intentionally in front of his not-quite-date.

As the woman walked away, she turned her gaze back to thr cop in front of her. She smiled softly. "I like her, she's funny..."

"She's great." He nodded with a fond smile. "This is...one of my favorite places in the city."

She nodded. "I can see why. Everyone is so kind here, so...affectionate." she glanced around the room. "I haven't felt...anything even remotely close to a familial connection in...far too long.."

"I'm sorry to hear that." He hadn't missed the sadness in her eyes when she heard about his mother. "I know it's...not my place to ask, but I'm not wrong in assuming you've gone through something similar to me?"

Biting her lip at the question, she nodded. This was stupid, getting close, letting him in. But she couldn't help it. When it was about her mother, her family... "My mother passed away about...about ten years ago."

"I'm sorry." He frowned, reaching out to lay his hand over hers as she had for him. There was nothing that he could say that would help alleviate the pain, especially knowing that it was a pain that would never really go away.

Feeling his hand on hers, she looked down, glancing back up at him with slightly reddened eyes. She gave a weak laugh. "Sorry. This isn't exactly first-not-date conversation. Why don't we change the subject?"

"Right. Sorry about that." He ducked his head with a weak laugh of his own, giving her hand a squeeze without thinking. "You'll have to remind me if I'm getting too morbid...I'm not used to having normal conversations. What would you like to talk about?"

"So...all you do is talk about death all the time?" she laughed softly, feeling his fingers squeeze hers. Why were they so warm, so comforting? She flushed softly, smiling up at him. She hadn't flushed in a very long time... "I have no clue. I'm not good at normal conversation. I introduced you to a drug dealer the day we met, remember?"

"I don't really have a life outside of work, so...yeah, pretty much." He nodded with a nervous laugh. "Okay, then...so what not-normal conversations are you used to that aren't about death?"

"But I thought you don't just handle death. I mean, drug dealer and all." She grinned, looking up at him curiously. "You are...very interesting, did you know that?" At the last, she gave a soft laugh, cheeks flushing lightly again. "I can't..really say I have any. Death is something that...facinates me.

"Violent crimes usually ends with death, unfortunately. I just...have a personal interest in this neighborhood." He chuckled softly. At the last, he relaxed a little, glad that he hadn't frightened her off. "I know the feeling. My mind is...well, pretty morbid. You're pretty interesting yourself, by the way."
