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

"Yes, ma'am." He nodded, smiling at the gentle order. The expression gained strength at the last, falling into step with her as he led the way down the hall. "It is. I'm glad to have something pleasant to look forward to instead of meetings and paperwork." And setting up a few things now that he was back in the country. His informant was already working toward looking into the business that Lee Tae Ho was conducting in his absence...

"well... If you're investing, isn't this still technically meeting and paperwork?" She couldn't hold back a soft laugh, wincing at the pain it brought to her ribs. As they made their way to the front door, she glanced back at him she smiled slightly. "Are you really such w nice person...or is this just an act, ahjussi?"

"Meeting and paperwork with someone I'd be glad to talk to with or without a contract." He corrected, shaking his head. At the last, he raised an eyebrow, wondering if he should deny the accusation altogether. But going into this with some semblance of honesty felt like a better idea... "It depends on the person." He said at last. "For you, it's genuine."

"and with those you don't care for its a bit more forced, i assume. Like a play, like a genuine business man." She couldn't hold back a small smile, shaking get head. "For me it's genuine. I wonder what i ever did to deserve such kindness..."

"Exactly." He couldn't hide a smile at the last. "You were kind to me, offered to make a scarf based on a few minutes of studying me, took me here and agreed to stay out of the kindness of your heart...tolerated talking to me. You've given me no reason not to be."

"I wasn't that kind, I just..I was being a human being." She laughed weakly before she looked back up at him. AS they stepped through the door, she searched for her car before looking at him again. "How about...I go get the car and you wait here. I don't want you walking on that leg, okay?"

"Then I guess most people in the world aren't human." He half-joked, surprised by the last. "If you insist." He nodded, smile widening a little. "I think a few extra feet won't hurt me, though."

"Just...stay." She held up a finger as a warning to him before she made her way across the parkinglot to her car. As she pulled up in front of the hospital, she unlocked the door for him. Right...she had to take him home. But she had no idea where he lived.

Chuckling at the display, he nodded, remaining obediently still until she unlocked the door. Thanking her as he settled into the seat once again, he rubbed absently at his leg. "I don't live far from here," He commented. "There's a gated property a little out of the way."

"Just tell me the address." She grinned, looking at him. "Maybe I should become your personal taxi service instead of your designer." Her hair fell into her eyes, hiding the bruise under her eye as she turned her gaze back out the window and started out of the parking lot and toward the pharmacy next door. Luckily it was a drive up. They wouldn't have to walk...she wasn't sure she could walk much as it was.

Telling her the address, he couldn't hide a grin of his own. "I do have a car, I just thought it was too nice of a day to keep from walking. I didn't think it would be more trouble for my health." Glad that his--or rather, Harry's--insurance was very good, he double checked to make sure that both of their prescriptions would be filed under his name to keep her from paying anything out of pocket.

"You seem like you've been straining it a lot lately. So...do me a favor and give your leg a break until it's healed, alright?" As she pulled up to the window and handed them the sheets of paper, she put her car into park to wait for the medication. Her fingers moved to the dial of her radio, trying to turn it on but hearing nothing but static. "This car is about to die on me, I know it." She laughed weakly, glancing up at him again. A part of her wondered just how much he really was being honest. Like...if she'd really see him in the morning.

"As you wish." He nodded with a smile, leaning forward for a moment as she fought with the radio. "May I try? I've got a knack for technology on a good day." He offered.

Surprised by the offer, she gestured to the radio to allow him to do what he wanted. "Go for it. It's a piece of junk." With a soft laugh, she shook her head again. "So you better not walk to my booth tomorrow, understand?"

"Yes, ma'am." He assured her with a soft laugh, toying with the machine for a few moments. After some fiddling, one sound smack, and a few soft swears, music replaces the static, bringing a proud smile to his lips. "There we are."

Surprised to hear the swearing on his voice, she turned her attention to him again and gave a soft laugh. "You fixed it! How did you do that? I've tried everything!" Hearing an older pop group come to life on her speakers, she couldn't hold back a small smile. "I haven't heard music in this car in years."

"This is a good song." He commented with a smile, brightening at her excitement. "You have a loose connection. This will work for a little while, but if I had enough time to get into the console I could give it a better fix." Then, flushing a little in embarrassment, he added, "I spent...a lot of time bedridden when I was young. I read everything I could get my hands on to stay sane."

"It's one of my favorites." She nodded, listening to the soft harmonies before she looked up at him with a smile. He could fix it..? Why was that htought attractive..? "Maybe I'll convince you to try it sometime." With a smile, she looked back out her window as the pharmacist came back to the window and held out the medications toward her, giving her the total dollar amount. Her eyes widened at the number, suddenly feeling very guilty for allowing this man to pay for her medication.

Passing a card through the window with a smile, he thanked the pharmacist before settling back into his seat. "Maybe sometime you should. I haven't had the chance to work on a model this old...it would be a fun challenge."

Frowning at the willingness to pay, the ease he handed over that amount, she couldn't help but wonder just how well off he was. To spend this kind of money on a stranger.... "Thank you..." Her voice was soft, uncomfortable. "I'm going to owe you a lot more then just a few consults..."
