"so... Im shiny and new... And you want to play until you're bored. Until I'm not interesting anymore, is that it?" She looked up at him again, biting her lip as her hair fell into her eyes. "I wish I'd never walked into that alley..."

"That's what normally happens, but you're different. This isn't how I work at all." He shrugged lightly. "I'm glad you did."

"I'm different." Scoffing once more, she shook her head, deciding to slip her arms into the sleeves of his jacket since she'd be using it anyway. He wasn't going to takeit back until her clothes were dry, she was sure. As she heard the last, she frowned, eyes moving to his once again. "I guess my karma is shit, isn't it?"

"I don't know, is it? Have you done anything that you feel deserves this?" He asked, raising an eyebrow as he looked over to her. She was wearing the jacket properly, he noted. Good, that meant she wouldn't try to give it back. But the sight of her wearing something that was so large on her, something that was his...made his heart jump in a way he didn't expect. It was incredibly attractive.

"probably. It's the only thing that makes sense." She looked up at him, an almost desperate look in her already stubborn eyes. "Are you ever going to leave me alone, Moon-ssi?" Her hair fell into her eyes, framing her face, falling under the jacket. It wasn't swallowiny her, but it was large enough to very obviously not be hers. Though, surprisingly enough, it looked damn good on her. She'd never worn leather before...

"I haven't decided yet." he admitted absently, still taken aback by how good the jacket looked on her. "I mean, I will eventually. One way or the other."

"so the real question is if I'll survive your stalking or not?" She laughed weakly, shaking her head as she looked up to him again. "Why are you so cruel? Have I hurt you? Upset you in some way? Is that why you harrass me like this?"

"That one I haven't decided yet. I don't want to kill you at the moment." At the last, he raised an eyebrow. "I'm not cruel. I'm just talking to you. Hell, I saved your life today. I could have stalked you, sent you threatening letters, killed off friends and family one by one in freak accidents with a calling card only you and I know...this is damn near civil."

She tensed at his answer. She should have known death was obviously an option with him. So why be afraid now? What was the use of it...? "Great...so my life is literally up to your mood of the day, that's what you're telling me...?" She shook her head. "You are cruel. This is stalking, you've followed me for weeks, found my place of work, my home, my grocery store, you know what I do every day. How can you possibly think this is civil? You're driving me insane!" Looking up at him, she frowned, eyes flaring once more. "You saved my life, I never asked you to. It wouldn't have been in danger if you hadn't followed me. I--" she cut off, realizing for the first time just how close he was walking with her, the way his still-wet shirt clung to his chest, the way damp hair fell in his eyes, the crooked curve of his lips... He was not attractive. Definitely not.

"You're looking at the darkest parts of all of this. Shouldn't that kind of situation make you appreciate everything that much more? The sun is shining, the weather is great, the whole world is at your feet. Knowing each day could be my last makes me live in the moment." He shrugged lightly, not seeing any downside to the situation.

"So...you want me to be happy that you may randomly decide to end my life and I'll have no fucking clue?" She shook her head, pulling the jacket tighter around herself to be sure her see-through shirt couldn't be seen. He really was driving her crazy... "Moon-ssi...what made you into such a madman?"

"A madman killed my parents in a back alley and now I've sworn to protect Gotham City." He replied coolly, expression never changing. She couldn't expect him to answer that question so easily. "To shorten a long story I don't want you to know, something made me realize that each day could be my last. I'm making the most of it."

She looked up at him, clearly unamused by his words as she frowned. "Seriously...? You caon't be serious for a second, can you? You're making the most of your life by being a murderer?" She shook her head, shivering as the wind picked up. It was still a long walk home...and she was fairly certain she'd just felt a drop of rain on the top of her head. "It's about to start pouring..."

"Damn, I was almost dry." The clouds had been building all morning. "I'm making the most of my life by letting no one stand in my way. I've been having fun. I'm living better than I have in years. I have a home, a job, more money than I'd ever dreamed of...the complete opposite of how it used to be. So I've had to break a few eggs to get here, what of it?"

"Killing is fun? stalking and tormenting is fun?" She shook her head, shifting to move under a tree, glad for the cover from the rain as it picked up. "Break a few eggs. The hundreds of people you've murdered in cold blood is 'breaking a few eggs'?"

"I don't think it's hundreds yet." He shrugged lightly. "And I learned early that I can hate who I am, hate what I do, or learn to love it. You don't leave a life like this. You just get good enough that they're scared to get rid of you." That was a little too close to revealing too much about himself, he thought with a frown. She was too good at getting under his skin.

"Yet." she scoffed, shaking her head. As he continued, the way he described his work, she could almost understand why he was this way, why he thought this way. The gangs in this city did things to you...and it seemed they'd taken their toll on him. Watching the rain start to pour around them and glad for the shelter of the tree, she looked up at the man again. They had to stand far too close to keep from getting wet. "And are they? Scared to get rid of you?"

"Absolutely. If I wanted, I could throw the whole balance on its head. Everyone knows that...especially Himchan." He nodded, shifting a little to get better cover beneath the leaves as he looked out to the steadily soaking street. He had already saved a few plans in the back of his mind if the need ever rose. "I'm the best in the city...I've made sure of it."

As he shifted closer, she had been in the process of doing the same. The shift brought them mere inches from each other and her footing slipped on the tree root. Her hand came up to catch herself, resting flat on his chest to gain her balance as she looked down at the ground for amoment. After a moment, her eyes moved up to meet his, realizing how close thye'd come. HEr heart was pounding and she felt her cheeks flush despite her efforts not to blush because of him. "So..you take what you want, when ou want it. You kill to pass the time, and you torment women as a game. Is there anything else I should know?"

Surprised by the shift, he brought his hands up to rest on her back, steadying her as she slipped. His own heart jumped, unable to do anything but stare as her face flushed. Regaining his composure, he smiled once again. "I'm a hell of a dancer." He added in answer to her question.
