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.

"It doesn't have to be a hideout, just someplace that won't be swarmed with the police in a few minutes." He sighed, thinking of a place at last and turning down the alley. Thankful for his memory of the neighborhood, he took her further from the scene of the crime, trying not to notice her breath fanning across his neck.

AS he turned, looking for a hiding place, she felt herself slip in and out of consciousness. With a shaky breath, feeling her skin growing colder by the minute, she found her voice was much weaker when she spoke. "Why..are you doing this? If you think I killed her..?"

"Because I'm not about to let anyone die if I have the chance. Even if you won't give me any straight answers." He found the cafe he had taken her to for their first unofficial date, pulling the key that the owner had insisted he keep from his pocket to let himself in the back. She wouldn't be in for hours, he knew. Depositing her on a booth bench, he ran to grab the first aid kit, a rag, and a bowl of water from the kitchen before returning to her side.

She was already fighting to stay awake, head swaying as she leaned against the bench. Her eyes were closed and sweat was beading over her forehead, down her neck. How coul she be sweating when she felt so cold...? As hse heard him rummaging around for supplies before returning to her side, she gave a small smile. "You could save my life...and still make sure I'm caught." That was exactly what he intended to do, she was sure. AT least...that seemed the most accurate.

"That's the last thing on my mind right now." He shook his head, cleaning the blood away from her arm and removing the tie to bandage her wound properly. She had lost a lot of blood, he knew, a concerned frown on his face. "I take it a real doctor is out of the question."

Shaking her head, she looked up at him. 'No doctors." Her world spun and she leaned back against hte booth again, shuddering. "So what..? You'll bandage me up, make sure I'm not going to die, and then you'll arrest me so you can take the credit for atching the killer. Is that it?" She wouldn't go there..she wouldn't be locked up like an animal. She would be free or she would be dead...and she'd make sure of it.

"I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm going to patch you up. That's as far as I know." He shook his head with a sigh, biting his lip as he worked. "You still haven't told me if you did it."

"I did. Does that change how you feel? Does that change what your planning?" She wtched him, wondering if he'd take her seriously or if he'd assume she said it just to get him to talk.

He studied her face for a long moment, the hesitation, the struggle clear in his face. This was the woman he had been interested in, the woman that had been his friend, the one he had been confiding in for weeks...the one he had been growing feelings for. But this was also a murderer. By all rights, he should turn her in, bring her down to the station and make sure that she couldn't hurt anyone else...but he couldn't keep from hesitating. "So all of what you did, all of the talks we had...were those sincere? Or were you trying to get me off of your trail?"

She couldn' hold back a small smile at his words, head rolling to the side as she shuddered. She was still fading in and out, she realized. "CAn't it be both? I started out...getting you off the trail, making sure you didn't start on it." She groaned softly, arms going limp. "Things changed."

That made everything so much more difficult, he thought, hair falling into his eyes as he made sure the bandages wouldn't bleed through so soon. "What changed?" He asked, half out of curiosity and half to keep her focus on staying conscious.

She gave a weak smile. You won't let me sleep..? ARe you worried I wont wake up..?" She laughed weakly, shaking her head, though her eyes wouldn't open. He was worried he wouldn't get to turn her in alive. "What changed? What do you think chnged, detective? We started talking, I started getting to know you...I started caring about you not getting hurt.."

"That's part of it." He gave a weak smile, biting his lip at the last. She believed that, he thought at last. This wasn't a lie. ""That....is exactly the same reason that I don't want to turn you in."

Hearing those words leave his lips, she forced her eyes open, looking at him in clear surprise. He was lying. That was what cops did...he had to be lying. She showed her disbelief on her face, shaking her head. "Are you satisfied iwth the bandage? You can go now." Or arrest her, which she was sure would come fairly quickly. He wanted that promotion, after all.

"You're barely conscious and you can't stand on your own. I'm not leaving until I know you're well." Pulling his phone from his pocket, he made a show of turning it off, showing it to her before setting it on the table, sliding it out of his reach. "Look. No phone, no one can trace me, I'm not about to turn you in."

"I don't want you here, Kim Seonjae." She shook her head, trying to move out of the booth, but the dizziness swept over her and she fell forward toward him instead. Why wasn't he turning her in? Why wasn't he arresting her? He couldn't have decided she was a friend so quickly...to throw away everything he thought.

"Too bad, Choi Yoonseo, I'm not going anywhere." He caught her with ease, guiding her back into the booth. He tried to ignore the way his heart jumped at the contact, hands lingering a few seconds too long over her arms before he resumed his position of kneeling before her.

AS he leaned her back,s he felt her mind start to black out. She couldn't keep her eyes open, she couldn't think... All she knew was that a cop was watchig over her and she was in a very dangerous position. "You're just waiting...for me to fall asleep...so you can take me in without the fight, aren't you?"

"No, I promise I'm not taking you in tonight." Past that night he didn't know. He barely knew what he was doing, he thought with a sigh, brushing her hair from her face without thinking.

As his hand moved to brush her hair back,s he flinche at his touch. HEr heart jumped and she managed to force her eyes open to look up at him. AFter a moment, she took a shaky breath. "You're not taking me in. How...can I believe you? I know how you are with criminals... I know how much you hate peole like me."
