"He's not giving me any trouble. He just misses me, wants me to come home so we can go to bed." she shook her head, faking a smile and giving another small bow. "I'll try not to bother you too much, ahjussi." She smiled a bit wider. "Thank you...for talking to me, for...for helping me out whenI was upset before."

"You're not the best liar. But I hope it turns out all right." He reached out, taking her hand for a moment and giving her fingers a squeeze before releasing them, not wanting her to get the impression that he was being too forward. "I mean it. If you need anything, just let me know, okay?"

She tensed as she heard him call her a liar, then tensed even more as she felt his hand. For a moment, she was nervous, almsot afraid...then she relaxed a little at the squeeze before her arm fell back to her side. Witha soft flush, she nodded. "I will. Thank...thank you. You're an amazing friend."

"I hope I am. And I'm here almost every night if you go on another late night walk." He added, wondering if her man had any control over her phone. Leaving a trail of messages might not be safe for her...he'd have to investigate their home life.

She nodded, managing a weak smile. "Thank you. For everything. You're amazing. I'll keep that in mind..and I'll try to remember where this cafe is." With a soft laugh, she offereda soft farewell before making her way toward the door.

Wishing her a good night, he watched her leave, noting which direction she turned. It wouldn't be hard to track her down, he knew, waiting just long enough that she wouldn't see him before standing and moving to the door as well. He had to see this fiancee for himself...get his ideas in order.

((Got it. XD))

Jongup had been careful. He had meant to kill the fiancee, but he had proven more resilient than he expected. The man would be bedridden and need care for the rest of his life. He hoped that his new friend wouldn't feel obligated to stay. But either way, the plan was to come to fruition soon. He had been following her patterns meticulously, planning everything down to the last detail. Though, he thought...it would be a shame to lose someone so fascinating. But he couldn't risk her finding out who was behind the disappearances she was studying so closely.

About a week had passed since Inna met Jongup. She hadn't seen him, hadn't even clled him for fear of the repercussions her fiance would give. But when she found him bloody, half-dead, and begging for help, a sense of relief washed over her. That was...until she took him to the hospital and learned hat he'd be bedridden for the rest of his life, he'd need constant care...and when she took him home and dealt with his whining and his expectations and his insults, she realized how much she couldn't handle it, how much she really didn't love him. Leaving her ring on his nightsand and calling his mother to come look afer him, she packed the small amount of her own things and left, realizing for the first time that she had no where to go... She found herself in that same park she'd met her friend, once again crying, all alone. After several minutes, shivering in the cold, she picked up her phone. Not wanting to inerrupt him, she typed out a small text. "Hello. I'm sorry I took so long to talk to you."

Surprised to feel his phone buzzing in his pocket, he shifted a little from his place at a picnic table in the darkest parts of the park. Reading the text, he raised an eyebrow before choosing his response carefully. "Don't worry about it. How have you been?"

"Been better." She gave a weak laugh as she typed the response, eyes burning as she took a shaky breath. Then typing a seon text, she bit her lip. "How about you? How are you? What are you doing?"

"Sleepless as usual. Just got off of work, I'm at the park now." Then, after a moment, he sent, "Are you okay? What happened?" Had she left the fiancee after all?

"You're at the park?" Her heart jumped. She had'nt seen him since that first time..She wiped at her eyes but i did little to nothing to help before her phone buzzed again and she saw the last message. BIting her lip again, she typed out another reply. "What makes you think something happened...? I'm fine."

"You said you've been better. Saw what happened to your boyfriend on the news. You sure you're fine?" She couldn't be there, could she? Standing, he pulled his hood up against the wind and started down the path, looking around for any signs of his intended victim.

"I'm fine, really. Just had a stressful day." She though over the next statement before taking a deep breath. "It's been...stressful and crazy, but we'll survive." Just not together. Tears started anew, streaming down her cheeks as she shivered in the cold, realizing she left her jacket back at the house...she'd just have to get a new one when she found a place and a new job.

Rounding the corner, he looked up from his phone to see a familiar figure shivering as she walked. "Inna-si?" He asked aloud, stuffing his phone back into his pocket.

Freezing as she heard the voice, she bit her lip to keep herself from being too loud, to keep him from noicing she was crying. Her heart pounded and her stomach twisted painfully before she forced her voice to remain steady. "...ah...J-Jongup-si. I was just h-heading home."

"You're crying again. What's wrong?" Was he concerned? He shouldn't be. Frowning slightly, he moved to stand in front of her. "Did something happen?"

"I'm not crying again. I-" she cut off, freezing as he stood in front of her. She kept her head ducked, hair in her face as she shivered, biting her lip though the tears idn't stop and didn't slow. As he asked if something happened, she took a shaky breath. "I...I'm fine. Please, don't worry. I just...I...well...I'm single now. I guess...I guess that's all it is...

Finding that he didn't know what to do in the wake of her sudden emotional state, he shifted a little, hands in his pockets. "...Come on. Let's find someplace warm to talk. You look like you're freezing." He offered, holding his hand out to her to lead her along.
