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.

"Attractive." She grinned, watching the woman bring him coffee. It seemed he came here often. She'd have to remember that. And the older woman kept watching her. Was it possible he didn't bring dates here often? Did he date..? He was attractive enough to date any time he wanted. But..did he want to? "With how I'm built?" she grinned, looking up athim before giving a soft laugh. "Why can't I be both? Therapist by day, dancer by night?"

"I mean, you could. But is that what you do?" He asked, unaware of the stares that the woman kept casting their way.

"In a way." She laughed, nodding. "I dance in my time off. And in the morning I go to school, mostly for my psychology degree." She tilted her head slightly. "We're being watchd. Do you have a habit of bringing your dates here?"

"I've never brought anyone here before. I don't have the time to date much." He shook his head with a soft chuckle, taking another drink. "Ahjumma--ah, I mean...miss Park is used to me coming alone."

"So you made an exception for me, Detective?" She grinned, glancing at the woman and offering a warm smile before looking back at him. "Ahjumma?"

"I guess I did." He nodded with a hum, flushing a little at the question. "She's known me since I was pretty young. My dad and I fell on some hard times when I was ten or eleven...she let me work here for a little extra money."

"And how re you feeling about that exception so far?" She smiled, hapy to see the woman smiling back at her before she looked back at her menu. "Now I feel like i"m under investigation, on display. She seems to be staring...judging me."

"She's been like a mother to me. She's probably trying to make sure you're not going to stab me the first chance you get." he chuckled, offering the woman a wave to subtly let her know that he knew she was staring. "She means well, I promise. She'll stop in a minute or two." After a moment, he glanced over the menu that hadn't changed since he was a child, adding, "I like the exception so far. It's a welcome change."

"I like her. She seems...warm.." She looked down at her menu, for a moment all hint of the woman she was trying to portrey was gone..and she was showing more sadness than she'd care to admit. She bit her lip, taking a deep breath before putting her smile back in place. The woman reminded her too much of her own mother. "It's a welcome change? That's the best you've got? I'll have to try harder to seduce you, won't I?" She laughed softly.

"She is. She's probably the closest thing to a mother I know." He spoke the thought without realizing, watching the sadness cross her face and wondering if she had gone through something not unlike his own experience. At the last, he felt his face heat, giving a startled laugh. "I--I mean, I do like talking to you. Are you trying to seduce me?" The last was a joke, knowing that outside of the interrogation room, his conversation skills were next to nothing.

"You don't have a mother?" Her gaze returned to his, unable to hold backa small bit of sympathy. She knew the feeling well..how heart wrenching it was... she felt her own cheeks heat at the last, eyes still on his as she gavea small smile. "What if I am? "

"She...she died when I was two." He looked down to the cup in his hand, knowing that he would see pity if he looked up to her. At the last, he was startled enough to look up anyway, giving a soft laugh. "I'd have to warn you that I'm not the best person to try. I'm pretty boring outside of work."

"'m sorry." Her voice was soft, clearly more familiar with the idea than most. "I't's good..that you had someone to kind of...help you in that way, then." As she heard the last, she gave a weak smile of her own. "ARe you saying you don't want to be seduced by me, then? Am I that repulsive?:

Nearly about to comment on her first statement, he felt his face heat at the last. "I--what? No, you're not repulsive! You're very seductive--wait no, that's not what--what I mean is that you're very attractive."

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.
