A peaceful strip of small shops and restaurants overlooking the banks of the river that marks the unspoken boundary between the two territories.

As he moved closer, her heart jumped. He really was handsome. And he likes seeing her smile? He was so... Kind. It almost seemed too good to be true. "I imagine there's no one that wants to hurt me in your house.. Unless you're a really good actor." The day before she had insisted that her wounds were from clumsiness... Why did she mention someone hurting her now...?

"There's no one here but you and me. And I promise, I'd never hurt you." His smile faltered at her words, tilting his head as he chose his words carefully. "Are...are you in any danger, miss Zoey?"

He'd never hurt her... that was comforting. But could she believe him? She'd thought Jungwoo would never hurt her, either...and he'd left her there, left her behind. She bit her lip, shuddering at the memory and shifting as if to make herself smaller. As she heard the last, she tensed even more and she took a deep breath. "...No. No, I'm in no danger." She wasn't getting him involved in all of her troubles. She wouldn't tell him about the debts, the men after her life and more.

"Forgive me if I don't believe you." He didn't know what to do, what to say, thoughts broken by the whistling of the kettle. Leaving his cane where it was, he moved the short distance to take it off of the heat, preparing a mug of tea for each of them. "In the short time we've known each other, I can tell you're self-sufficient. You don't want to burden anyone, you want to handle all of your problems alone. But...if you need anything...I'm happy to help, all right?"

Looking up at him in obvious surprise T his words, her cheeks flushed. Her heart gave a hard bump and she dropped her gaze. He..was so kind. Why? What did he wamt from her..? "You cant help. Trust me."

"Well, my door is open to you no matter what." He concluded, setting one cup before her. Settling in his seat once again, he added, "I can change the subject if you want."

"Why...are you so convinced that I'm in danger? I told you, im clumsy. You've evwn seen it." She couldn't look at him. She couldn't think about the past..not again... "You dont have to worry about me, Mr. Borrisson."

"I've lived through enough danger to know the look of someone who's suffering." He replied softly, tone betraying a lifetime of weight and pain before he pushed it away once again. He wasn't Kang Hyung Joon. Not anymore. And he never would be again.

She saw a flash in his eyes, a flash of pain, something like what she felt every day. She frowned, reaching out before she could stop herself to grasp his hand gently. As if realizing what she'd done, as if he'd bitten her, she pulled her hand back almost as quickly with a soft apology and a flush of her cheeks. "...You think I'm suffering?"

He felt the warmth of her hand, smiling softly even as her hand drew back with just as much speed. "I think you are. Even if you don't want anyone to know."

She bit her lip, thinking his words over for a long moment. She didn't want to tell him the particulars, she didn't want him to know all of the problems she had...but if she didn't pay off her entire debt, she'd be dead by tomorrow. She didn't want him to get attached, to get used to having her around if she was about to die. She flipped to a new page in her sketch book and began writing out several different stores, clothing stores and ideas for designers and clothes. When she had nearly fifty, she pulled the page out and slid it to him. "This...will be your best friend in creating your new wardrobe."

"This is...a lot." he was surprised by the sheer number, looking over names both familiar and foreign to him. "Is this a placeholder until you get your own studio?"

((Think he should get Director Yoon to dig into who she owes and pay her debt for her? XD))

(Either that or get Director Yoon to dig into who she owes and kill them.)

"It's...in case I can't work with you." She gave a small smile, a weak smile. "You know..if I get sick or if my leg is acting up or something. You wn't be completely lost. It's...just in case." It was for when she died.

((Oooooh I like that better. Murderous Woona getting what he wants. For the greater good. XD))

It sounded too much like a goodbye, he thought in passing, hearing his phone chime and excusing himself for a moment as he typed a quick message to the main contact he'd had since his return to Korea. He needed to find out how to make her debt disappear...permanently. Turning his phone to silent as he sent the message, he turned back to her with a smile. "Sorry, my assistant gets a little antsy if he's not familiar with the company he's dealing with. So this is like...a safety net?"

(Yep. XD and not wasting money on an easily solved problem. XD)

"Is he alright? Do you need to go or call him?" She looked up at him, surprised to find that watching him work, even just sending a text, he became a completely different person. He became serious...almost frightening. It was...kind of hot. Cheeks flushing softly, she glanced down at the paper again. "Yeah. Yeah, like a safety net. Just in case, like I said."

"He'll be all right. I have a lot of confidence in him...even if he doesn't have as much confidence in himself. If he was in real trouble, he would call." Again, not a lie. Turning to take a bite from the plate set before him, he hummed softly. "I haven't heard of half of these..."

"That's because you're not a fashion person. No offense.." She laughed softly, looking up at him as she took a bite as well. After a moment, she turned her sketch book toward him. "Here. I have about twenty designs in there for you...tell me what you like, what you don't like, what you'd change..."

He laughed softly at the comment, nodding. "I guess you're right." At the last, he flipped through the pages, humming softly as he looked through the designs. Offering one or two slight changes, he found he really liked the designs. "I'm surprised you drew so many in such a short time..."

Thinking his words over, she nodded, wondering how he'd feel about the design for the new cane. The silver, the leather, the classy engraving. Her heart was racing. Would he like it? "I like to design. So i like to draw.. you like them...?

"I love them. They're perfect." He smiled brightly, eyes lighting up as he found he couldn't wait to give her the opportunity to bring these drawings to life. He wondered how she would look at work, in total concentration, completely in her element...without a care in the world.
