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.

"I know you don't need it. I want to help." He insisted softly. Frown deepening, he added, "I...should have said something sooner. I should have been firmer. He shouldn't talk about you like that."

As she heard the last, her cheeks flushed softly. Her eyes moved to his and she took a deep breath. "You didn't have to say anthing. He didn't say anything wrong. Everythign he said...was true." She looked up at him, looking away almost as quickly and shaking her head. "You did what you should have done, pretend to be Perry Park."

"He was lying. You're beautiful, and anyone that doesn't see you as a woman is insane." He insisted firmly, shaking his head as he shifted the rag to press the cooler fabric against her skin. "I should have said something."

"If you're not careful, Ill think you really were flirting earlier." She gave a weak laugh, shakig her head. He didn't see her as a woman. Seki did. And she still didn't understand why. As he shifted the rag, she tensed for a moment, wincing before she looked up at him again. "You shouldn't have said anything..or he would have hit you."

"I meant everything I said. Even if the attitude I was using happened to be a little offensive." He chuckled weakly, shaking his head. "If he hit me, he would have been very surprised. Most of the time Seki comes out when that happens...but one of the others has surprised me from time to time."

"Seki comes out..when you're hit?" She looked up at him in obvious surprise before she took a shaky breath. After a moment, she shook her head as well. "...You...don't have to act like you want to protect me, stand up for me. I can handle myself, Mr. Cha."

"Through violence, most of the time." He nodded. "He hasn't come out when I'm sleeping until recently. Normally it's either Perry or Yoseob." At the last, he shook his head with a softer smile. "I'm not acting, Rijin-si. I know you can stand up for yourself...but I want to help in the wake of idiots like that."

"That idiot is my brother." She reminded him, frowning as he looked up at him. Realizing that he was insistent...because he cared for some reason, for whatever reason. Cheeks flushing softly, she shook her head. "Thank you...for worrying." It was better just to tahink him..wasnt it?

"Your brother needs to learn to treat you with respect." He shook his head with a sigh, flipping the rag once again. "Family...should be important. Sometimes it's all you have."

"He...doesn't mean anything by what he says. He just...thinks that that's how he sees me, it's how everyone else should, too. He's always been the type to pick on me." She laughed weakly, shaking her head. As he flipped the rag again, she looked up at him, for a moment, wishing it was Shin Seki that looked back at her... Once again, she was reminded of when he had kissed her, the feel of warm lips on her own... She felt her cheeks heat.

"It comes off as rude. You of all people deserve better than that." He couldn't keep from frowning. "How is your hand?" He asked gently, peeling the rag back to inspect the reddening skin.

As she felt the rag get pulled back, she frowned, feeling the heat, the sting from the burn again. She bit her lip, looking don at their joined hands. "hurts..." Why was her heart still racing? All he was doing was helping her, holding the rag to her hand. Why did it make her so...nervous...?

"Do you have something for burns?" He asked next, replacing the rag at the change in her expression. At the back of his mind, he felt something sir, trying hard to push it back. Twice in one day? He had to get better control of this...

"I don't...think so, no. I haven't really burned myself bef-" she cut off, seeing a shift in his eyes. "...Mr...Mr. Cha..are you alright..?" Even the grip on her hands changed just slightly. IT was more...rough, though not rough enough to hurt her.

"He's...trying to come back." He managed with a little difficulty, swaying a little as he stood before her. "He's awake again."

"...let him." As much as she wasn't sure she could handle him kissin gher again, if Dohyun fought Seki, he would only get hurt. Her gaze dropped to their still joined hands, hoping the other man wouldn't get the wrong idea by waking up to their holding hands for a second time. He'd see she was injured..wouldn't he?

"L-let him...?" His head felt like it was splitting apart. He had never been able to fight this hard for this long, and the pressure he fought off was only building in intensity.

"Let him. He's only going to hurt you if you don't." She reached up, brushing her fingers over his cheek. "Deep breath..and just let go." Her hand fell away again and she looked up at him, feeling the throbbing of her burn start again.

Shuddering, he tightened his hold on her hand, leaning into her touch before he followed her orders. With a deep breath, he stopped pushing against the presence threatening to overtake his mind, falling quickly into darkness.

Seki frowned as he settled into the front. Dohyun had never fought him as hard as he had then. What was going on...? Looking around, he found himself in a strange kitchen, holding Rijin's hand. "What...what happened?" He asked, raising an eyebrow and feeling his anger return at the contact. Was that punk trying to take his woman again?

As his hand on hers tightened when Seki emerged, she couldn't hold back a pained wince and a hiss as he put too much pressure on the burn. AFter a deep breath, she looked up at him, eyes meeting his for only a moment before her cheeks burned and she forced herself to look away again. "Cha Dohyun...b-brought me home."
