"You really think other people will ever see them? You think people would like them?" She looked up at him aagain, forgetting for a moment her dark past and the things she wished had happened. She was doing better..as long as she didn't think of JungWoo.

"People will love them. You just have to get your foot into the right door." He assured her, smile returning with more strength. "And I know quite a few doors to try, if you'd accept the help."

"I have to have the equipment to even try the doors you'd have." She laughed softly, shaking her head. "The bottom line is...I can't afford to pursue my dreams."

"I'm sure we could work out a deal, you know." He reminded her. "The opportunity is at your fingertips, whenever you want it."

"A deal? What kind of deal could you possibly offer?" She laughed softly, shaking her head as she started coloring in the sketches, specific colors that would compliment his skin tone perfectly.

"I know you don't wan to feel obligated to anyone...what about a percentage of your sales when you get rolling? The same I'd ask of anyone that I was helping with marketing or sponsorship." He offered, brushing his hair out of his eyes.

"..a percentage? So, what? You pay for my business to start, to get off the ground, and then I give you a percentage if I get customers?" She looked up at him, slipping her marker betwen her teeth to chew on the end absently.

"I think it's fair, don't you? That way you get what you need without feeling guilty for having it." He nodded with a smile. Seeing the absent gesture was oddly endearing, he found, wondering if she had the habit long.

"And what happens if I never get any business? You'll be out a lot of money. Are you sure you could even afford to help me with everything you're saying? It' snot cheap to start in this business." She continued to chew on the marker for a moment befor seeing his smile and feeling her heart give a bump. "And why would you want to invest in a fashion business...? IT could go under just as quickly as it starts...

"Then we revisit what you're doing and how I can help. What sort of sponsor would I be if I just let you stay unsuccessful?" He asked, shrugging lightly. At the last, he added, "Because those that do well are incredible forces to be reckoned with. I've seen quite a few...and honestly what you're doing here has the potential to outshine all of them."

"So you're saying you'd fund me until I become successful...?" She raised a brow, watching him, hair falling in her eyes. He really seemed to believe in her. He really seemed to think she'd become someone worth something. But she wouldn't become anything if she couldn't pay back her debt. She gave a weak smile. "...can I have a couple of days to at least think about it...?"

"That's right." He nodded, smile brightening a little at the question. "Take all the time you need." Soon she would have all the time in the world...he would be sure of it.

Flushing softly athte idea that he could really help her, wishing she'd met him before she'd gotten into the debt, she gave a weak smile of her own. "I'll think on it..." She didn't want him to spend that money, not when she was going to be killed in just a few short hours. "I promise I won't take more than a couple of days to decide."

"Don't worry." He assured her, clearing his plate and moving to bring it to the sink. "i'm sure that once you're given a chance you'll be a star in no time."

((Gotcha covered. XD))

Yoon had said that things would be taken care of. Harry was sure that this would mean something extreme; he had insisted that whatever happened, it would lead Zoey right to him. Beyond that, he trusted his friend's judgement as to how that job was done. He was sure he would get a call, staying near his phone all day as he went about his tasks, sitting in front of the television with his tablet in hand as the evening wound late into the night. He would be lying if he said he wasn't antsy. Ten minutes, he promised himself, not listening to whatever show was playing before him. In ten minutes' time he would call Yoon and get an update if he didn't hear anything first.

Sooyeon had had a restless night. She'd been worried, terrified that the men she owed would break her door down and kill her in her sleep...so she couldn't relax, she couldn't sleep. Instead, she worked on the designs for Harry, knowing he knew where she lived and hoping that, when they found her body, the sketch book would find its wayto him. She wrote a letter, a small one explaining that she was grateful to his friendhsip and his kindness, a goodbye. It was a letter thanking him and hoping he wouldn't dwell on it or feel bad for not elping. She explained why she wouldn' tell him that she knew it was coming. By the time she was finished preparing for her final hours, she pulled on her jacket and stepped out into the brisk night air. Cold, shivering, she pulled her jacket tighter around herself and went to meet her death. But when she found the man she owed the money to, when he raised his hand holding a knife, when the stranger in black dove between them and proceeded to beat the man uncontrollably until he lay motionless and bleeding on the ground, she felt all the cold leave her, replacing with terror. She watched as this stranger pulled the knife from the man's hand, shoving it into his chest over and over again. She couldn't scream, she couldn't do anything but watch. When the stranger stood and faced her, her eyes meeting cold, empty ones, her heart froze, her blood ran cold. He was going to kill her, too, she was sure. Before she could think, she turned and ran, unsure if he was falling at all. She wasn't far from Harry's house...and for some strange reason that is where her feet took her. It had begun to rain outside, she was soaked and she was crying as she thanked whatever god there was that his gate was open and she ran to his front door, banging on it in hysterics.

(I totally need Director Yoon, btw... XD Sexy murder beast)

((Director Yoooooooooon))

Startled by the sound, he wondered if Yoon had run into trouble after all, making his way to the door. He checked the camera pointed toward the porch, annoyance turning to shock as he saw the familiar figure of Zoey just outside. Before he could stop himself, he hit the button for the doors to open, waiting just on the other side. Just as planned, he thought, hiding his satisfaction behind a mask of confusion and concern. Yoon had done well...he would have to do something to thank him. "Miss Zoey?" He asked, flipping on the light over the porch. "Are you all right, what happened?"

(Director YOOOOOOOOOOOONA)

As the doors opened, she rushed inside, turning to shut the doors as soon as she was inside. Her hands rested on the wood, shaking uncontrollably, drpping water all over his floors as she cried, as she shook. She couldn't face him, she could only rely on the door for support, unaware of the blood splattered over her face from her close proximity to the killer before. "I-I-Is he th-there? Did--d-did he f-follow m-me?" She could barely speak at all.

"You're alone. Zoey, what happened, are you hurt?" He placed his hands on her shoulders, cold and clammy from the rain, turning her gently to look her over. He had told Yoon not to touch her under any circumstances, but that might not have stopped her from falling in her distress. The blood didn't phase him, but he allowed shock to cross his face nonetheless. "Are you bleeding?"
