The Quarry

Once used for mining limestone in days long past, it's now a place frequented by Hakyeon's rougher "brothers" for interrogation purposes.

"You didn't tell me why." He said at last, shaking his head. "You're right, I wouldn't have trusted you...but at least then I wouldn't have trusted you to be alone either." At the nickname, his frown deepened. "My last name is Kim. If you want to use that instead." Hundreds of thousands of people shared the same surname...that should be safe to let her know.

"I didn't realize I needed to tell my assassin why I don't want to be left alone." She frowned, brow furrowing as she watched him. AFter a moment, she cleared her throat. "You would have left me there...you said yourself that you were going to torture me. What better way to do that than do the thing I'm obviously.." terrified of, her mind finished. She looked up at him again as he said the last, clearly shocked with his words. "...Kim...? Alright." She nodded. "Killer Kim, then."

"I didn't use the zip ties. And I wouldn't have left you alone." He shook his head once again, starting toward the car once again. At the nickname, he sighed, resisting the urge to roll his eyes. "You could make it a little more obvious what I'm here to do; I don't think anyone nearby heard you." That was sarcasm. He couldn't ever remember using sarcasm aloud before.

She tensed as he mentioned the zip ties, hands instinctively going behind her back as if to hide her arms from him. At his sigh, she looked up at him, raising a brow, stopping her own walk to look up at him. She reached out before she could stop herself, hand resting gently on his arm to bring him to a stop as well. "Look around us, Mr. Kim. There's no one here to hear us. I get up before anyone else in this town. I work longer and stay out later. I know when they come out to the fields and I know where they could hide." She pointed to a couple of good hiding places, all vacant of other souls. "There's no one here or I wouldn't have called you that. And even if I had said it when someone was around...they'd think I was calling you that because of your killer looks. You have nothing to worry about. I"m not going to rat you out...and I' not going to run unless you leave me alone again." After a moment, hand still on his arm, she gave a bright grin, a grin far too happy to belong to a woman who was about to die. "Besides...you're the hit man that came out into the open and is still letting me wander around of my own free-will. I think anything that happens to you because of that is your own fault, don't you?"

"After the last time, I thought to be more careful in not causing a scene." he frowned at her words, her bright disposition unnerving him a little. He had given her a death sentence, was her executioner...and still she thought to speak kindly and smile at him? Was she insane? "You...are a strange woman, miss Kim."

"But if you posed as a police officer and 'arrested' me, it wouldn't really matter, would it?" She smiled slightly, watching the frown pull at his lips. He hadn't made a commment on her saying he was good looking...and instead focused on how strange she wes. With a small smile, she raised a brow. "Do I confuse you, Killer Kim?" She laughed, finally realizing her hand was on his arm and slowly dropping it from him. "Should I stop talking, then? You don't seem used to having your marks try to hold a conversation before they die."

"You absolutely confuse me." He shook his head with a frown. "I was planning on arresting you...until you offered to come with me without any trouble." After a moment, he added, "...Do what you want. I'm not...the one they call for...personal touches like this."

"but if you look back on our relationship, on what we've already been through..shouldn't you have handcuffed me anyway? I mean..I've gotten away frmo you twice now." She laughed, not meaning to insult him, but actually finding some amusement in what had happened between them. As she heard the last, she raised a brow. "So...who are you, then? I mean, obviously you won't tell me your name...but what do they call you for? Just..to kill anyone? The difficult ones? The dangerous ones? What am I classified as to have warranted you coming after me? I'm dying to know." She giggled. "Dying...to know."

(She...actually wants to die right now. After all the shit she's been through. It's why she doesn't want to run away from him...XD)

"The very important jobs." He said at length. "I'm...the one they call when things go wrong. And they need a permanent solution." He couldn't keep from shooting her an incredulous look at the sound of her laughter. "You...did you just...make a pun? About dying?"

"So I'm an important job? It must be the file.." she nodded, smiling slightly. Things had gone wrong is what he was telling her. That made sense. As he looked at her, she glanced up at him, unable to hold back a soft laugh. "Don't look so surprised. I've already told you I knew I was dying. What point is there in fighting it or worrying about it. It's going to happen it. You know it, I know it...Don't be so shocked." She smiled up at him. "I don't hate you for it, and I"m not going to run to avoid it."

"You're...oddly positive." He said at last, almost glad that the car was within their line of sight. "You don't hate the man sent to kill you?"

"Positive? LIke I said, what's the use in worrying? I'm going to die, anyway." She raised a brow, looking up at him before giving a small smile. "I don't hate you, Killer Kim. I don't really feel anything toward you, honestly."

"I don't know if I should be concerned about that or not..." He mumbled, shaking his head. This was the strangest job he'd been set to, he was sure. And definitely the strangest person he had ever met. Though it wasn't often that he met anyone at all. "Most will fight, try to run...at the very least try to insult me because they're angry that I'm their executioner. They blame me for being the reason they die."

"Why would you be concerned? I've gotta be one of the easiest marks you've ever had. I'm even going back with you willingly." In all honesty, she wanted to die. She wanted everything to stop...but she couldn't give up that file. Not while Moon was still in power. She couldn't let him hurt anyone the way he hurt her. That file was important...or he wouldn't have sent his best man after her. As long as she had it, he wouldn't make a move again. She couldn't help but wonder what was in it... "I have no reason to insult you. You're doing your job. I have no reason to fight, you'd clearly beat me. You're trained to. and I have no reason to try to run....clearly you'll chase me. You've done it twice now." She shrugged, looking up at him. "I don't blame you." She smiled softly, once again wondering if he'd ever had someone smile at him before. "And I'm not angry. The only person I should be angry with, the only person I should blame, is your boss."

"You're surprisingly level-headed." He commented without thinking, reaching the car and opening the door for her. It was simply because her hands were bound, he told himself. For a moment, he wondered if she would have to die before she told him the location of the file, knowing that any method of interrogation would likely fail. This strange woman, if her story was true, had been broken by crueler methods than he ever wished to use...and still found the presence of mind to show kindness to her executioner. "But you're still determined not to give me what I want, aren't you?" He asked at last, voice showing just a hint of his weariness. This job was getting to be more trouble than it was worth...

As he opened the door, she looked up at the man with a small smile, even going so far as to thank him before ducking into the car and sliding over so that the door wouldn't hit her when he closed it. As she heard the last, how he seemed...weary, tired, she looked up at him. Her eyes were bright, innocent and soft as she gazed at her soon-to-be killer. After a moment, she smiled again. "That depends on what you want. If it's the file...then you're right. I won't be giving you that."

"Of course you won't." He muttered, unaware that he was speaking aloud before he reached into the car to fasten her seatbelt, leaning closer than he anticipated before he was able to back up and close the door. Moving to the driver's seat, he ruffled his hair, trying to get his thoughts in order. These last few days were the strangest in his life, and he couldn't shake the feeling that this wouldn't end anytime soon.

Tensing for a moment as he leaned over her, flinching a little as he drew near as if she expected him to touch her. Her face paled for a moment, knowing this was the first time she'd shown him she was afraid. As he buckled her seat and then leaned back again, she relaxed, realizing her worries were pointless. At least for now, he wouldn't touch her like that... When he shut the door and moved to the driver's side, she turned her gaze to him. After a long moment, she took a deep breath. "...Killer Kim...Why do you follow orders? You seem smart...you seem capable and dangerous and...extremely clever. So why take orders? Why waste it on...on something so mindless as being a hitman?"

"I've never known anything else." He shrugged lightly, surprised for a moment when she flinched away. Right, he thought. The story she told...it would explain her aversion to contact. "I've been training for this position since I was very young."

(Should we wobbly? Maybe to like two weeks later, she's escaped two more times, both times were just because he left her alone and she left only far enough that she could find another person, because she willingly went back with him on her own? So...like maybe she's back in the warehouse, he's left the room to go look for the file or something and she maybe gets sick? Because shes been staying in a very drafty warehouse...? So he can come back in and she's all feverish..? XD)
