A high end bar frequented by most of the city's elite. Many deals, both political and private, are wound to life here. A basement lies below, soundproofed, that holds the base of operations for Hakyeon's "family" and the blood and money they trade.

"You're impossible, all right..." She mumbled, feeling her pulse jump a little as he drew close, relaxing as she saw the twig in his fingers. At the last, she nodded, brushing her bangs from her face. "I make a living in small spaces...but only as long as I can see every angle. If I don't know what's coming up behind me, I get into trouble...as you've proven."

He nodded. "But you didn't know what was coming up behind you in that room either." Watching her brush her hair back, he gave a small smile. "You look better already. More relaxed..like you can breathe."

"I was careless. Everything was going so well...and I just lost myself to listening for the tumblers and opening that damn safe...I should have paid more attention to my surroundings." She shook her head with a frown. At the last, she felt the expression soften, nodding as she relaxed against the tree. "I can. It felt like the walls were closing in on us for a minute..."

"Except I was there the moment you snuck in. You just didn't have the area as clear as you thought you did." Hearing her words, he nodded slowly. "I felt hte same way when i first went down there... And I...got lost. For two days. I wanted to find my way out without the map or directions or anything. I wanted to be sure I could do it in a time of crisis...and I panicked at first."

With a soft curse, she shook her head at her own foolishness before her eyes widened at his story. "Two days?" She echoed. "How...what did you do? Weren't you scared?"

"I survived and found the exit. It was...nerve wracking...but no one knew where I was or what I was doing. Surprisingly enough that was enough of a motivation to keep trying to get to the exit. And I found it, in my own..."

"That would have driven me insane..." She shook her head with a sigh, brushing her hair from her eyes again. "You weren't able to call for help, or were you too stubborn not to?"

"A bit of both. If I'd called for help there was no guarantee they'd find me. And if they didn't it would only waste my already short time. I didn't want to starve down there." He shook his head, looking up at her with a small smile. "It was empowering when i realized I wasn't about to die..."

"You're...the weirdest man I've met." She commented without thinking, giving a soft, impressed laugh. "But that's impressive."

"But at least you've met me. You're life will be do much more fun now that you have." He grinned brightly, the movement making his eyes close completely. After another moment, he looked down at his lap. "I'm also the cutest, right? "

That smile was not endearing, she told herself firmly. It simply couldn't be. Despite her best efforts, she felt a small smile pulling at her own lips. "I don't know about your definition of 'fun'--" She broke off at the last, wondering if he was messing with her. "Wh-what?! Are you serious?"

Hearing her response, his smile fell, replaced with a small pout, though he obviously didn't notice it existed, istead picking up a small twig and drawing in the dirt with a frown. "I was serious, yeah... But I guess not, huh?"

Finding that against all logic, she felt a little guilty for making his smile fall, she shook her head. "That's not it! I...I mean, you are pretty cute." She had to admit it, running her fingers through her hair again. "C'mon, don't pout like that. You caught me off guard."

He looked up at her, for a moment all hint of the hit man was gone. He watched her, wondering if she meant her words before he cleared his throat. "You think I'm cute? Really?"

Stammering for a moment, she wondered just what the hell she had gotten into before she brushed her bangs from her eyes. "Well...yeah. I mean you've got a great smile. And that pout was kind of endearing, as weird as it is."

He bi this lip, looking up at her through a curtain of hair before grinning again, not a brightly as last time. "You think I have a great smile? You think I"m endearing..? Even though I shot you?"

"Yeah...but I think you're a shit for shooting me." She admitted, laughing softly. Seeing him smile once again got her to relax more than she would like to admit. "But...I was the one robbing you. And I thought that threatening you with what I am would work. So I can't blame you much for it." Then, expression turning sheepish, she added, "Plus...you saved my life, and helped me way more than I deserved."

"You broke in!' He laughed, shaking his head. After a moment, he looked more fully up to her, eyes meeting hers as he heard her tone shift. Was she embarrassed...? As he saw the look on her face, heard her words, he gave a sfot smile. His fingers moved up to push his hair back fro his face for a moment as he nodded. "You're welcome." She hadn't thanked him...and he doubted he'd get a real thanks...but he knew what she meant. "I'm glad I was able to save your life. I meant it when I said I don't like hurtin beautiful women."

"That's why I'm wondering what you're doing wasting your time on me." She half-joked, knowing that if she hadn't looked like a complete mess when he first caught her, she definitely looked it after the ordeal they'd gone through. His laugh was almost as endearing as his smile, she thought before she caught herself. How the hell was this the same man that had held a gun to her just a few minutes ago? "Thank you, ahjussi. I owe you a lot...I hope I can pay it back somehow."

He had been in the process of unbuttoning his sleeve and rolling it p before he heard the thanks. Cheeks flushing softly, he looked up at her again, raising a brow. "...did you just...did you just thank me?" Had he heard that correctly?
