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.

"I see, you're ashamed of my body. What a shame..." He laughed softly, moving his free hand to brush her hair out of her face. "And you? Did you want to jump me on that stage, Hana...?" At the last, he felt his face heat. "It's...been a while since I've dated anyone. Work--my other job, I mean--got a little too busy."

"No! Why would I ever be ashamed of--" cutting off as her cheeks burned, she shook her head. "I just...I've never..you..you're my first kiss, the first person to even hold my hand..." she bit her lip. "And..as for jumping you...I'd rather not. Not with everyone watching like that." But the solo Dance he'd given her would be enough to change any innocent thought... at the last, he brow furrowed. "Being a bouncer got busy?"

"Your first kiss? You mean..." His eyes widened, fingers tracing over the back of her hand. "I was your first? Was it a good impression?" He couldn't hide a gentler smile before he heard the last, shaking his head. "Sometimes I pick up odd jobs for my brother. This isn't the only business he owns."

"I mean..." she nodded, cheeks flushing softly before she gave a small smile. "You were my first. And...well...it wasn't bad. I'm..not sure if it was good. It was shocking, more than anyhing." She laughed softly, cheeks flushing even darker. She smiled. "I mean..both times you've kissed me it's been..shocking and...while I was in the middle of an internal crisis." As she heard the last, she raised a brow. "ARe you sure it's not anything else? Didn't you tell me you had a full time job somewhere?"

"Would you like to try again?" He asked with a softer smile, brushing the fingers of his free hand over her cheek. "I fill holes where needed. It's pretty much full-time...working with Himchan always is." He added without thinking.

"I...I wouldn't mind trying again..." She flushed, eyes dropping. "Fill holes? Should I be jealous? I mean--" she cut off, hearing him mention Himchan. Tensing slightly, she looked up at the man, brow furrowing. "..H...Himchan? As in...Kim Himchan...?"

"You know his name. Shit, I should have known you'd heard of him..." He shook his head, ruffling his hair with a sigh. "Yeah. Yeah, I mean Kim Himchan. He owns this club...hell, he owns this side of town. But it started here. Please...don't be afraid. There's a lot that almost no one knows about all of this..." The fear was clear in his face, paling as his fingers tightened around hers. He had fucked up. He had royally fucked up. He had finally admitted his feelings, gotten her to agree to giving this a shot...and now she knew he was essentially a mobster. One of Himchan's most trusted men, one of his oldest friends. And she would likely run and never look back.

"H-How..." She trailed off, biting her lip for a moment, pulling her hand free from his grip as she looked up at him again. "How...well do you know him? What...exactly do you do for him? What kind of odd jobs do you do for him?" She felt her fingers trembling, surprised to find that, while she was afraid of what shed find out about him, she wasn't afraid of him... "Is he the 'brother' you keep talking about..?"

"He is, yeah. There are four others." He nodded, sure that she would take this information and go straight to the police. He should stop talking, protect the family...but he couldn't lie to her. And he couldn't stand the fear on her face. "Most of the time I go out and meet with informants, get information, set up meetings with people that pay us for protection...sometimes, when necessary, I'm a hired gun. But two of the others are better at it than I am, so I'm usually a last resort." His hands fell into his lap, twisting and fidgeting as he sat back on his heels on the floor.

She nodded slowly, taking a deep breath before she could stop herself, she dropped her gaze to the ground before finding her voice again. Her hands were trembling. "...have you...have you ever killed someone?"

"I have." He hated this. How must she see him, he thought, fear and dread making him feel sick at his stomach. What was she thinking? "Please don't be afraid of me." He blurted out, reaching out with the intention of taking her hands and stopping them just short. Would she even want him to touch her?

"...how many?" Was he a murderer? Did he enjoy it? Why was her heart beating so quickly..when she didn't feel afraid? "W..why did you kill them?" When she heard him ask her not to be afraid, her gaze dropped. How would he judge her if he knew she wasn' afraid at all?

"H-hard to tell. Things were different before Himchan took over. More savage." He shook his head with a frown. "I killed them...because they told me to. Or to protect myself or my family."

"Did you like it? Did you do it for any other reason but protection or orders? Did you....did you do it as a game?" She watched him closely, seeing ht way he reacted. He didn't want her to be afraid. She wasn't afraid. But if he found out she wasn't afraid, wouldnt' that be worse? Wouldn't he thinks he was insane, wouldn't he hate her for being so...inhuman?

"You want the nice answer or the honest one...?" He asked with a weak laugh, combing his fingers through his hair. "Sometimes. There are some people that died that probably...didn't need to. That I decided needed to. For one reason or another..." When he was on the job, his emotions went on the back burner. He was bored easily...and he had taken to the job fairly well while Sijin was in power...

"So...you enjoyed it?" She watched him closely, hands still trembling. He'd only just admitted his feelings to her. What would she do if she ruined it all now?

He was silent for a long moment, nodding as he reached out, placing his hand over hers to gain a small measure of comfort. He was sure she would pull away. She couldn't understand. She would never understand. "I...I did." He breathed. "Please...please don't hate me..."

As she felt his hand on hers, her body froze. For a moment all of her fear faded away and she felt relaxed, almost happy. Hell, she was happy...to be there with him. As her eyes moved to his, heart pounding, she took a shaky breath. "..why didn't you tell me all of this before...? Before you...you asked me to...to be with you."

"I...I was afraid of what you'd say. Of what you'd do. I know it...it was wrong..." He frowned, ducking his head as his hair fell to hide his face. "It isn't fair of me to ask you to deal with that. But...life without you...even as a friend...would be awful. I'm...I'm so sorry."

"...will you have to kill in the future? Do you think you'll still enjoy it?" HEr heart jumped at the thought, seeing the fear, the sadness, the worry...She hated making him fear that she'd leave....but if she didn't make him think she had a problem with i, wouldn't he want her to leave anyway?
