Tilting her head slightly, she watched him for a long moment before speaking again. "Why do you want to see me again? What's the benefit?" She certainly wasn't his type. She couldn't even be his type of friend...so why was he here... Talking to her..?

He shrugged once again, eyes flashing as his smile widened. "You're interesting, fun to talk to, very pretty...and it feels like the right thing to do. Do I need anything else?"

"How could I possibly be interesting to talk to? Literally everything about me has already been said." She shook her head, taking the umbrella from his grip with a soft thanks. "It just...doesn't make sense, that's all. I mean, I'm very obviously not your type, I"m not even your type of friend, I'm sure. So why bother? I'll only bore you."

"You haven't bored me yet. In fact I think you're fascinating." Like a blank canvas, his mind offered helpfully. Maybe he could do a little teaching here...if she would let him. Brightening as she took the umbrella, he brushed his bangs from his eyes.

"I'll...bring this back tomorrow..." She gestured to the umbrella before looking up at him again with a soft flush. Fascinating. How crazy was this man...?

"I'll see you then." His smile brightened once again, not surprised in the least to find that she was cute when she blushed. "I hope your night wasn't a complete waste of time." He added with a laugh.

Seeing the man going after her with some kind of purpose, Daehyun hesitated for a moment before following at a distance. It wasn't stalking, he rationalized, as long as he was making sure she made it home without issue.

The hand around her wrist made her freeze. She turned ro face her boss, heart pounding. In hushed voices she asked h to let her go, which he refused. He told her that he wanted tk be sure she got home comfortably and safely.

He walked into earshot just as he heard the girl say to let her go, thinking quickly before approaching with a bright smile, winding an arm around her shoulders and pulling her into his side. "There you are, babe; I thought I'd never find you in this downpour." He gave her a slight squeeze in a silent "roll with it" as he turned his gaze to the man before them. "Who are you and why are you harassing my girlfriend?" He asked next, tone turning icy.

The man, clearly drunk but having no ill intentions toward the girl, he looked up at the man before looking at her again. "I..thought you said youdon't have a...boyfriend."

She looked up in shock at the stranger, cheeks flushing darkly as she felt his arm around her. She'd never been so close to a man before. Shrugging out of his grip, she looked up at her boss and shook her head. "I don't. I just met him tonight. He must think you're a stalker or something, but I assure both of you that I'm in no danger and I can make it home alone." She looked up at Daehyun pointedly before looking back at her boss. "I will see you in the morning, sir." Giving a small bow, she started to walk down the sidewalk again, a part of her wondering if either would follow.

The drunk man blinked after her before looking up at Daehyun with a goofy grin, swaying slightly. He wouldn't have hurt her, he just had a hard time with the word "no" when he was drunk and finding a damsel in distress.

"I think I messed up a little." Dae sighed, shaking his head before looking the man over. Harmless. Drunk but harmless. He had some apologizing to do, it seemed. "Miss?" He called after her, jogging to catch up. "I, uh, didn't mean to make you uncomfortable," He started, falling a few steps behind her.

She slowed her pace as she heard the call, knowing he'd follow her. When he came up behind her, she stopped, turning to face him again. As her eyes met his, she felt her heart give a hard beat and she recalled the feel of his arm around her. Her cheeks burned. "I wasn't uncomfortable. I just had no reason to be rescued. You don't ahve to be sorry for anything."

"Well, I'm sorry anyway. It looked sleazy from where I was standing, I didn't realize he was just...touchy." The impression that the man gave with the other coworkers hadn't been a good one, after all. Aware of his clothes sticking to his body, hair falling in his face, he offered a smile. "You're not offended?"

"He's touchy. He has expressed an interest in me and he constantly makes propositions to me at work, but he's harmless." At least, he'd always been harmless in the past. "He's never crossed a big line with me, just small things like grabbing my arm back there." As she looked up at him, heart nearly stopping in her chest at the attractive man in front of her, she felt her cheeks heat once more. "No. I'm not of....you're going to catch a cold, Mr. Jung. Do you live far?"

"Not very. It's about a half-hour by walking." He shrugged lightly, hoping that boss of hers stayed harmless. He had a habit of seeing the worst in people, but he wasn't sure if this was just a bad feeling.

She bit her lip, thinking her options over for a long moment before speaking softly. "...did you follow me out here...because you saw him come out after me? I mean...did you come out here in the rain..because you were concerned for me?"

He was surprised by the question, shrugging lightly. "Well...yeah. I wanted to make sure you got home without issue. This neighborhood is sketchy at night."

Seeing how soaked he was, how he'd run out with no regard forr his own health, to be sure she was alright, she bit her lip before turning down the sidewalk. "...follow me, then." She couldn't leave him in wet clothes all the way back to his house.

"Follow you?" He asked, surprised by this turn of events. Wondering what she was doing, he slipped his hands into his pockets in a vain attempt to keep warm. "Where are we going?"
