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

((I can definitely see it. And he feels bad and switches them out and doesn't use them again when he catches her again?))

Making his way into the cold room, he glanced into a charred barrel and found a pile of wood salvaged from broken pallets and old furniture. It was short work to build a fire, bidding her to sit nearby where he could see her in the light and warmth the barrel provided.

(yep. Because she has a pretty fucked up past, too. Not just with Mr. Moon - not-dad.)

As he built the fire, she watched, wondering if now would be a good time. But if she tried to run for it, he'd catch her with ease. She had no idea where she was...and she was tied up. She'd have to wait until he wasn't around...or asleep. As he gestured for her to sit near the fire, she eyed him suspiciously as if she were afraid he'd push her into the fire before moving to sit next to it, still shivering. It was freezing in the warehouse. "How are you going to do it, then? WIth the knife? A gun? The fire...? How are you going to kill me, Mr. Killer?"

"I haven't decided. If you tell me where the file is, I can guarantee it will be painless for you." He was shit with interrogations, and threats were things he found distasteful. He preferred to let his actions speak instead of words. Standing to the side of the fire, near enough that he could feel its heat, he felt the exhaustion of the last several days starting to settle in.

"I don't care if it's painless. I told you. I"m not telling you where that damn file is. You wouldn't be able to find it unless I got it myself, anyway." She shook her head, eyes on his for a moment more before she looked away. "I meant what I said before...I'm not afraid of you. You can threaten me or torture me all you want...it won't change anything unless I know no one else is going to end up like I did. I'm dying, that's a given either way...but I won't let anyone else die like I am."

"You're so sure that one file is enough to stop everything? To put an end to what you went through for good?" He shouldn't be talking to her, a voice at the back of his mind hissed. It wasn't like him to be so curious.

"That file...it isn't about his embezzling or his secret meetings with corrupt government officials. It isn't about his company or his work life at all... It's personal. WHich means if it were to get out, it would destroy him completely. I don't know how...but it's something he desperately doesn't want anyone to see. Which means I want everyone to see. I may not be able to put an end to it...but maybe I can do something to put an end to him." She looked up a thim. "Do you believe me, then? What I told you he did?"

"I believe that you believe it." He said at length, frown deepening at her line of questioning. "Which is..." Not good. Definitely not good. Any doubt in his mind was weakness, which he absolutely couldn't afford. "Concerning. Either you're insane, or..." Or his father was lying to the one person he had sworn to always be truthful with. His closest confidante...his only blood.

She frowned, shifting a little to sit a little straighter in the chair. "Lift my shirt. About four inches." There was a handprint, bruised onto her hip and waistline. There were bite marks on her neck and shoulder. And on her left shoulder blade..the man she hated so much had carved his own initials. He'd even video taped the entire assault...but she had no idea how to get a hold of that tape.

He hesitated for a moment, frown deepening before he knelt beside her, lifting the fabric and finding the bruise. Closer inspection found the bites on her neck...could she really be telling the truth? He had some questions for his father... Stepping back once again, he couldn't keep the confusion, the hesitance from his face. Nothing about this was right. There had to be some explanation for this...right?

"That man int he trunk..didnt' have time to give me these. Or the mark on my shoulder." She knew he hadn't seen that one yet, either. "I don't know what it is. I couldn't see it...but he carved it into me while he left me t--" cutting off as she remembered the scene, as the images flashed through her mind again,s he shuddered, eyes dropping before they closed tightly to try to force them away. She was tied up, she was beaten with fists, whips, multiple other tools. He'd carved into her shoulder, though she hadn't seen the results, and this all happened with a camera pointed at them the entire time. She breathed a little heavier, shuddering at the memories. It had been weeks...she should be getting over this by now. "So maybe..you don't know your employer as well as you think you do."

"He...he couldn't...there's no way he would keep that..." No way in hell that would be a secret. But as he reached out, pulling the fabric gingerly away from the skin of her back, he saw the initials. As if he were burned, he released her shirt, taking a step back as his heart pounded in his chest. "Father..." He breathed, unaware that he had spoken aloud.

As she felt the man move the shirt aside, she tensed, wincing at the pain it brought. That was one wound that hadn't healed right, it was red, inflamed, infected...and while she remembered all she'd been through, she was terrified, she realized, of being touched. As her body trembled, almost as if she expected this man to do the same, she didn't hear the words he spoke at all. Instead, she focused on the memories of what had happened in that room. If he knew that she was acting this way just because she'd been touched...he'd use that as part of his torture, she was sure. And that was something she couldn't handle. After another moment, she took a shaky breath. "There's a camera. He filmed it all. If you don't believe me, find the camera. Watch it yourself."Her voice broke. She had wanted more than anything for that video to stay buried...but if it made this man realize how little he really knew of Moon Ilsuk..it was worth it, wasn't it? To let him watch her get stripped down and beaten...? She shuddered at the thought, hating hte idea of this man, of anyone, seeing more of her than was already visible...

"Video...?" He repeated dumbly, finding that his legs couldn't hold his weight. For a moment, he knelt, ruffling his hair as he tried to keep his thoughts in order. They were quickly spiraling out of his control. A few hours ago his life was pristine, in perfect order...but now he couldn't tell what was real. "This is insane." He breathed to the ground in front of him. He had to get ahold of himself. He needed to drive. If he was going to be here for a while, he should get more supplies...

She shuddeered as she heard him say the word, as she remembered the cameraonce more. As she bit her lip, wishing more than anything that she could curl into a ball, that she could wrap her arms around herself, hold her knees to her chest, she ducked her head, hair falling to hide her face from view. She was going to be sick if she didn't stop replaying that moment over and over in her mind. As she heard the last, heard that her words seemed to be bothering him, she looked up through her hair. "...find...find th camera, if you have to...Just.." She ibit her lip hard. She hoped he would never tell her how much of it all he saw, should he ever look for that video

"No. I won't...I mean, I...I believe what you're saying." Standing after a moment, he let out a deep sigh. "I need...I need to get a few things. And dump that body. I'll be back." He said at length. She was miles away from civilization, and the sun was setting fast. It would soon be too dark for her to see her way on the road, especially bound as she was...there was no chance that she would run.

As he started to leave, she tensed, voice speaking a little too quickly, a little too shakily. "You're--you're going to leave me here...? A-alone?" She should be glad for that, her mind hissed. This man was still there to torture and then kill her. She shouldn't be afraid, upset that he was leaving her there. She should be celebrating... This was her chance to escape. But in that moment, she suddenly felt like escaping was the last thing she should do.

(So..I'm thinking when she escapes and runs off to where he actually ahs to track her down and find her it's not because she wants to save herself, it's because she's terrified to be alone so she's just looking for someone to stay nearby. So when he finds her again, he doesn't even have to tell her to put her hands behind her back, she'll immediately hold her arms out for him...which will be so new and shocking it can catch him off guard like the talking did. XD)

((He'll be so confused when she does that. XD))

"It'll only take a half hour. Maybe a little more." He shouldn't have said it, but the fear in her voice stuck out in his mind. It sounded a little strange. He wondered if she would try to run anyway...jumping into a stranger's car hadn't been the best idea, after all.

(I think at one point she'll actually ask him to kill her. Like...maybe Moon tells Kk to bring her back alive because he wants to kill her himself, when really hr just wants to bang her. So KK can tell her that Moon wants her alive --maybe up to that point he's still on the fence on if he believes her story or not. Maybe he thinks someone did thay stuff using his dad's name instead or something. So he tells her Moon wants hee alive, she breaks down, crying, begging him to kill her because she'd rather die than go back to him... Which can be when he decides to find the video of the thing, just to be sure it was really his dad. He sees the whole thing, comes back to her, trying to figure out what to do with her, ahe asks for his name, he finally tells her, then she gives him the file.. XD what do you think?)

She tensed, shifting a little in her seat as if in an attempt to get closer to him. Her hands were still bound. They'd remain bound, she was sure. It kept him at an advantage. But honestly, she didn't care much at this point anymore. After a moment more, she slowly nodded. "Only a half hour," she repeated, voice soft, trembling. She could survive a half hour alone... Couldn't she? She'd gone several weeks since that day alone, on the run...but the wound, the memory, suddenly felt much more real, much more fresh. She was sure it was from the corpse in the car outside. He'd brought it all back. She'd thought she'd been handling it well, but now she found herself trembling, unsure what to do, what shw could do. And she couldn't. Stop. Shaking.

((Ooooooh I like this. XD So he can totally lose faith in his dad, be a very confused murderer, find out that he's not even the dude's son, and have his whole world crash around him. Poor thing's gonna be devastated. XD))

She seemed afraid, he thought, though he was sure it was the promise that he would return, not the fact that he was leaving. Dumping a few more logs into the barrel to build the fire, he ruffled his hair again before making his way silently to the door. Thankfully the car still had the keys in the ignition, he thought. The car he had driven to the quarry was still there where he left it. He would dump the body, get something to eat...and from there he would figure out what to do with the conflicting thoughts in his head.

Minjun had worked hard. She's waited until the man left her alone. She'd intended to wait for him to return, but the feeling of being alone, of that man's hands on her, of everythign that had been happening, she couldn't stand it. She started hyperventilating and, in her panic, managed to loosen the ropes around her hands, get free, and run. She had no idea where she was running, she was miles from any source of light...and it was pitch black, but she kept running, down the road, until she came to ahighway. Keeping off the road, but close enough she could tell she was heading somewhere, though she didn't know where, she followed the paths. Several hours later, she managed to find her way to a small town. A small town no one knew her in. She slept in a barn behind someone's house and the next morning, she managed to convince one of the people in the town to pay her room and board in exchange for some farm work. She was lucky, she thought, that she'd learned how to do this when she was young. Sure the man was still hunting her, she gave a fake name,a fake background, and the older woman accepted it, though she seemed to know it was a lie. Two days. She stayed at that house, working for that woman for two days...And as her alarm went off, waking her before even the sun came up,s he made her way to the fields, wearing the hoodie the man had left with her, a pair of ripped jeans, and boots the woman had found that were just a little too big.
