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.

"Take this as a gift. Please." He insisted, shaking his head at the tone of her voice. "It would be unfair of me to insist you get treatment while leaving you with medicine you can't get."

Biting her lip at his words, she glanced at him for amoment before nodding slowly. She'd pay him back some day. She'd have to. She wouldn't let herself owe him for long. After all, owing was how she'd gotten into this trouble in the first place. "Alright... I guess it's time to take you home, isn't it?"

"I guess so." He nodded with a soft hum. "And tomorrow we start our arrangement, right? Maybe some time you might trust me enough to fix your radio permanently." He couldn't hold back a smile, brushing his hair from his eyes.

"Tomorrow we start our arrangement." She nodded, smiling slgihtly, looking over at him for a moment bfore shifting the car into drive and starting down the street again, remembering the address he'd told her before. "And maybe I will...but my car is old, i'd hate for it to mess up and kill you or something."

"I've fixed old cars before. Not this brand, but my aunt's car was a little older than this. I knew just enough to keep it running on luck and prayer." His smile widened.

"I still don't think I can trust you just yet, ahjussi. You're still far too...strange for me." She laughed softly, turning down his street after several minutes and glancing down the street until she pulled just in front of his house, eyes widening at the mansion. She'd only dreamed of houses like this. "....wow..."

"Is strange such a bad thing?" He couldn't keep from asking, hitting a button on the keys in his pocket and watching the wrought iron gates leading into the grounds opening before them. "It's...a little much, isn't it? I think I overdid it." He added with a soft laugh.

"STrange is....frightening to someone like me." She nodded, staring, amazed at gaze opening. Pulling further into the gate, she pulled up to his front door and put the car into park before looking over to him. "It's just...I've...I've never been this close to a house like this. It's...really pretty."

"Frightening? Am I really so intimidating?" He tried not to think of just how frightening he had to be in the last several years, choosing instead to watch her. In the wake of all of that darkness, she was so...bright. "It's beautiful...but pretty empty. My aunt was living here with me, but she passed away suddenly...now it almost feels too big."

"Honestly? I think you're the most intimidating person I've ever met. And, with what I've been through, that's saying a lot." She laughed weakly, looking up at him As she heard thelast, heard him mention his aunt, she couldn't keep from reaching out and grasping his hand gently. She didn't know why she did it. It wasn't like her...but losing family...she knew that feelings all too well. Though, she hadn't lost hers through death... "...I'm sorry. Were you close with her? What about your parents?"

"She raised me, but...to be honest, she was always distant." He was surprised by the warmth of her touch, thumb brushing over her fingers as he turned his hand to return the gesture. "I never knew my father. My mother..." He saw a flash of memory without his bidding, the image of a sobbing woman behind the bars of a hospital window, beating at the glass and crying his name. "She died when I was young...shortly before I moved out of the country. Other than Michelle, she was the only family I had."

Surprised that he was returning the touch at all, she tightened her grip on his and she gave a small frown. I'm...so sorry. Do you remember her much? You must miss them." With a soft sigh, she gave a soft apology, releasing his hand. She really should be going,, letting him go inside.

"I miss her a lot." He gave a soft, sad smile, missing her hand as soon as she released him. It had been too long since he'd been so close to anyone. "She was an incredible woman. I hope that seeing what I've made myself into...she might be proud someday."

Frowning at his words, knowing how much he must miss his mother, she looked up at him for a moment before looking down again. "I'm sure sue would. I'm sorry to...to talk about all this, I know it's none of my buisness or anything." As she looked up at him again, she offered a weak smile. "I should..let you go. I"m sorry to have ketp you so long, but I really should be getting home."

"Don't worry. It's...kind of nice to have someone to talk to about it. All Michelle wanted to do was pretend that life before France never existed..." He shook his head. At the last, he apologized for taking up so much of her time, moving to open the door. "I'll see you tomorrow, then." He promised, a brighter smile on his lips.

((Gotcha covered. XD))

The next day was even nicer than the first, Harry thought, half-tempted to walk back to the booth of the fascinating woman he had met. But he remembered his promise and the angry twinge in his leg that he had woken with, choosing to dress in something simple and driving down to the riverwalk when he felt the timing would be appropriate. It was difficult to live a diurnal schedule when most of his time was spent keeping track of a certain Han Tae Joon, learning his habits, his family, his affairs. The informant he had found in France was already settling into a role as the mogul's personal assistant. Everything was going off without a hitch, but he needed to remind himself to have patience. Parking close to her side of the market, he made his way to her booth, smiling as the breeze carried the promise of a beautiful spring.

She had sold a bit more this time, a few hats, two scarves, little knickknacks she'd created. She was in the process of bringing out a bit more when she heard it. Clack. Clack-clack.. her heart gave a jump, but she'd thought she'd heard him all morning... If she looked up again and saw it wasn't him, she'd only disappoint herself again. So, instead, she kept her head buried in the box, waiting for the sound to pass and searching for the other articles she'd made. She'd likely never see that man again. He'd done his good deed and probably thought all the good karma was heading his way...it had all been, she was sure, just talk.

Pausing before the table, he let his fingers brush over one of the hats, watching her as she dug through a box, nearly out of sight. "You have new things today." He greeted, a bright smile on his lips. "They look really good."

As she heard the voice, she jumped, startled, hitting her head on the table. With a loud curse, she pulled her head out from under the table, hand on the back of her head where she hit it and her cheeks flushed, rubbing the sore area as she slowly looked up at him. "Ah...Mr. Borrison.." The flush darkened even more. "You...you're here. I mean you..came." She gave a weak laugh, the sound not quite so cheery. "I have..a lot of new things. I couldn't sleep last night after making your scarf. I was too...pumped up, I guess." With a darker flush, she moved her fingers back to the box and pulled out the navy and silver pinstripe scarf she'd designed for him the day before and held it out. "Your scarf."
