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.

Hearing the clatter, she turned just in time to see him fall to the ground. In surprise and no small amount of worry, she rushed to his side, slipping her hand under his head just in time to keep it from hittin gthe ground. "Shin Seki-si!" When his hand moved to his side and came away bloody, she cursed softly. He'd already torn his stitches. Damn, she should have made sure he wasn't dizzy before she left him there. "Are you okay? Does it hurt?"

"I...I'm fine." His voice was softer than Seki's by comparison, shaking his head slowly as he made his way into a sitting position. Meeting the eyes of a very pretty woman, he was surprised to see a hospital room was his destination of choice. Seki hated hospitals... "Ahjumma, I apologize, but...where am I?" He asked, looking around. If he knew which hospital he was in, he could make his way home. The pain stopped him from thinking about the consequences of asking, not knowing just how much Seki let her know.

She froze at his words, brow furrowing as confusion washed over her. What? Where was he? Had he hit his head after all...? "Sh-Shin Seki-si? How's your head? Are you still dizzy?" She helped him to sit up, hand on his shoulder to steady him. "CAn you breathe? You tore your stitches I just put in. I'll have to redo them. Did you hit your head?"

"Shin Seki?" Damn it. So she had been speaking to him. But now he had to open his stupid mouth. He hoped that she wouldn't call the police, call the psychiatric ward...his mind flashed through all of the possibilities in a panic, making him swallow hard. "I can breathe...it...it just hurts. I didn't hit my head, ahjumma...but...shit." He bit his lip for a moment, shaking his head. "My name is Cha Dohyun...I don't believe we've met."

"A-ahju..." He'd never called her that. She frowned slightly, brow furrowing at his words as she heard the last. Her confusion doubled and she tilted her head. "Cha...Do...Cha Dohyun? I...I thought your name was Shin Seki. That's what you told me an hour ago."

"Oh, shit..." He shook his head, bringing a hand to his pounding temple. Of course. How often had he awoken to a problem that Seki had started? "If he--I mean I--offended you before I fell over, I apologize..." That was a good place to start. But she didn't seem to be terribly upset... what had Seki been up to? "This is...it's a very long and complicated story..."

"Before you fell over? This wasn't just falling over. You lost a bit of blood. Are you sure you didn't hit your head?" She bit her lip, fingers moving to his forehead to push his hair back and search for a wound,a bump, anything. After a moment, she shifted. "Can you stand? I need to fix this.The stitches."

"I haven't hit my head...today." He shook his head, the last barely louder than a mumble as he struggled to his feet. Groaning softly, he cursed once again. "That bastard's going to kill me someday..." He breathed, unaware that he was speaking aloud. His clothes were tight, he noticed. Too tight for his comfort. And the shirt that was already a bit constricting was sticking uncomfortably to his skin with old and new blood. Great...

"Haven't...ahjussi, you were hit several times on the head in the bar tonight. I...we might need to get you a CT scan if you really can't remember that. You're...acting like a completely different person." She bit her lip, hand resting on his shoulder to keep him sitting. "Lift your shirt, I'll restitch your wound. We need to control that bleeding before anything else"

"I...well..." There was nothing for it. She'd send him through an incredible amount of tests if he didn't come clean. And by that time Seki might break loose again...or one of the others... "I...am a different person, ahjumma. From the man that you met earlier this evening." He lifted the shirt gingerly, far from the cool apathy that Seki had shown before. Dohyun's pain threshold was much, much lower. "It's a long story...as I said. But I don't need any tests, this...isn't the result of any injury." Not that he could remember, at least.

She moved forward, fingers starting to work at cleaning the wound once more. As he spoke, she froze, hearing his explanation, hearing his confusion. He wasn't hte same man? Had he been drunk...? Was he finally sobering up, then? "...maybe...you shouldn't drink so much, Shin Seki-si." She gave a soft laugh, shaking her head. "Does it hurt now? Should I get you some medication? If...if you want something, you'll have to tell me how much you drank and what exactly it was."

"I am very much sober. I don't remember drinking, but...Seki doesn't drink very much at a stretch." He shook his head with a frown. "I told you, my name is Cha Dohyun. I don't need any medication, I'll just take some aspirin when I get home." With a sigh, he ducked his head for a moment. "You must think I'm insane. Have you, uh..." He needed to stop while he was ahead, but he needed to be sure this woman wouldn't call the police on him at the first chance she got. "Have you heard of DID?"

"Sober? You don't seem sober? I mean, you'havne't seemed sober since we met. There's not many men out there that will hit on a stranger who's out with her coworkers right after getting into a fight--" she cut off, hearing the last. Her brow furrowed for a moment before the realization dawned on her. Personalities. He had....split personalities. Shin Seki...was a part of this man. Or maybe this man was a part of Shin Seki. She didn't know...she didn't know anything about him. She tensed, watching him closely. "D...DID? So Shin Seki is....another...another personality?"

"He...he is." He was done for. She'd call the nurses, security, the police...Manager Ahn would have a field day keeping this out of the press. "Please don't be afraid. I've had treatment; after you're done here, I'll settle any debts he's racked up and be out of your life. I'm sorry for any trouble he's caused."

"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?"

Dec 22, 2017, 10:06am

"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."
