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.

He shrugged. "I can just..stick around sometimes. Remind you not to let things get to you. Remind you to...to enjoy life, not stress about it." He looked at her, reaching out to brush her hair back from her face. The last time he'd done this was to remove a twig...now he did it because he felt hte desire to. "Or I can drop you off at home after you eat...and never see you again. Its your choice."

Feeling her face heat under the touch, she wondered for a moment if she had another leaf stuck in her hair before she realized that this was for a different reason altogether. "The last time I made friends, ahjussi, they set me up to take the fall on a job we were all a part of and went on to live their lives while I spent a year in jail."

"Sounds like you need to learn how to pick better friends. It also sounds like they were pieces of shit." He hummed softly, raising a brow at her words, wondering why she didn't get angry at his touch. "It also doesn't sound like they were much of friends at all..."

"They weren't." She shook her head with a humorless chuckle, the sting of that betrayal and the long months spent caged for a crime she hadn't even wanted to commit still fresh in her mind. "But I thought they were. And at the time, they were all I had." And now what did she have, a dark voice in the back of her mind asked, causing her to shake her head to stifle it once again. "On the bright side, they gave me the tools to be the best at what I do."

"That's good, at least..." he smiled, watching her closely. "Come on. We can talk more inside." As he moved to exit the car, he sped around to her side, opening the door for her, as well.

Thanking him softly, she rose slowly to her feet, finding that her knees were just a little better, but she would still be moving slowly for the time being. Shaking a little as she put her hand on the car door for support.

Watching her for a moment, he smiled softly and knelt on front of her again. "Come on. I've got you."

Surprised to see him bending to carry her once again, she kept her hand on the car door, trying to ignore just how theatrical this all seemed. "You...you don't have to carry me into the restaurant, ahjussi..." She offered at last. "I'll be slow, but I don't want to burden you like that." Especially in front of the people that would be watching, her mind added.

"Call me Ken. Or Jaehwan. But don't call me ahjussi." He grinned, keeping his back to her. "And either you get on my back or I"ll carry you in like I carried you to the car. You're still injured. And I gurantee you anyone that's in there are employees. You're not burdening me. Remember? I only do what I want." He grinned "So if you're worried about putting on a show, it would only be for the little old woman that runs the place ad a couple of her grandkids."

Listening with a soft sigh, she closed the car door, moving to gingerly climb onto his back as she decided that it was a better alternative to being carried in bridal style...it held less romantic connotations. "Thank you, ahj--um. Jaehwan-si." She corrected.

He hummed softly at her words before nodding and standing. Making his way ino the cafe, he nodded at the older woman near the kitchen. The woman clapped excitedly, welcoming him and leading him to a table that was clearly familiar to him. As he set the woman in the booth, he turned back to the older woman, taking her hand and giving a small bow. "Eomma..." He smiled, free hand moving to cover her as well so that he held one small, frail hand between both of his. Giving a soft greeting and a few words of how he'd been and listening as she responded with how she'd been, he sat back at the booth and looked at the girl with a wide smile.

Settling into the seat, she watched him greet a woman that seemed as warm and bright as he was, she couldn't keep a small smile from her own lips at the exchange. It seemed so...normal. So happy. She hadn't seen anything like that in a long time. Watching him return, she shook herself from her thoughts, brushing her hair from her eyes, asking, "She's your mother?"

He looked up at her. "You think I'd introduce you to my mother so early in our relationship?" He grinned, shaking his head. "She's practically raised me alongside my mother. She's my brother's mother." With a soft laugh. "She's a part of our side as much as Hakyeon himself."

(I'm trying to decide who should have such a nice mama. Maybe N..since Ken and N's mom have such a great relationships. XD)

((N's mom works. XD That gifset was super cute. XD))

"Rela--what?" She asked, shaking her head with a huff. At the last, she glanced over to the woman, offering a small smile at the sight of the woman's waving in greeting. Offering a wave of her own, she added, "She...seems really nice."

"We have a relationship. I didn't day it was romantic. You assumed." He grinned, watching thr exchange as the grin turned Tia fond smile. He hummed softly, nodding st her words. "In my opinion, aside from my own mother she is the kindest, purest soul I've ever known. She's why I fight to live my life as I do..."

"Fighting to see the world as a brighter place?" She asked, tilting her head as her eyes moved back to him. "That's...pretty noble."

Feeling her gaze on him, the words she spoke struck him and he felt his cheeks redden. "Noble? I've been called a lot of things, but never noble.."

"Really?" She couldn't hold back a small smile at the sight of his blush. "Your face is red, Jaehwan-si..."

Hearing her mention his blush, he rubbed the back of his neck, nervously. "Well..I'm embarrassed so I imagine it would be." With a soft laugh, he shook his head. "I'm just..not very noble in my mind."

"You're going out of your way to see the beauty in the world. To leave something kind, both for yourself and the people in your life." She shook her head, smile widening. "That's pretty noble to me. Especially after seeing just how self-serving and painful the world can be."
