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.

"Sorry, but I don't think I ever could." She shook her head, caught somewhere between fear and curiosity. She hadn't tracked him down, and she hadn't investigated him nearly as thoroughly as she could have. Now sure htat this was real instead of some sleep-deprived hallucination, she shook her head as she clutched the book she held to her chest. "Not...not after that."

Raising a brow, he felt he smirk widen a little. "Is that a compliment because I"m good looking, or is that from fear, Ms. Nari." He'd done his own research... just in case letting her go came back to bite him in the ass. "Are you worried that I followed you here?"

"A little more worried now that I know you know my name, Mr. Cha." She raised an eyebrow, wondering if she should get someone's attention for help. Or would he turn the situation around on her?

"Should I be worried that you know mine?" He smirked as well, tilting his head as he had the night they met, looking at her like a mouse. "...You'e done your research, it seems."

"You left me your name. You couldn't expect me not to." She pointed out without thinking, feeling for a moment that she was nothing more than prey, and he was sizing her up to see if she was a worthwhile meal. "Why are you...looking at me like that? And how did you figure out my name?"

"I left you a name. I never said it was mine. I left you a card to cal if you wanted to see a shrink." He chuckled softly, raising a brow for another moment before turning to glance over his shoulder. He had thought he heard someoe say his name...but not even his men knew he was here..this was his day off. At the last, he glanced back at her again. "Looking at you like what?" At the last, a small smile pulled at his lips again. "...I have a lot of people in this town taht I own. It's not hard to find the name of a stranger that happens on one of my outings."

"You've been in several news articles in the last few years, Cha Hakyeon." She shook her head with a small frown. "And a lot of them have pictures. All I had to use was Google." At the last, she ran her teeth over her lip, shifting uncomfortably under his gaze. "That was an accident. I was just supposed to take pictures of the deal and give the evidence to the police so they could break up the ring. You weren't supposed to be there."

"But the fact that you were curious enough despite my warning..shows me you're braver than I first thought. I suppose you'd have to be if you're a journalist.' He smirked. "You didn't answer my question, Nari-ssi." Straightening and running a hand through already messy hair, he smirked. "Looking at you like what?"

"Like...like you're sizing me up for something." She said at last, trying to find the right words to explain the creeping feeling going up her spine. "It's very...predatory. I don't know if I should be afraid of you." Though he seemed so much more...normal as he was now. Though he was still intimidatingly attractive.

"YOu should always be afraid of me." His eyes narrowed a little at her words before dropping his gaze to the books in her arms. "I size everyone up. I need to be aware of my surroundings, especially of those that know who I am. Are you saying you feel like prey to me?"

"I'm saying you're looking at me like I am." She didn't want to let him know just how much he was unnerving her, feeling a little better now that she was seeing him in broad daylight, in public. Though that by no means meant that she was safe. "Why? I'm just a tabloid photographer trying to get by. No one even believes the shit we publish anyway; it's not real news." Though the way she spoke of it showed her disdain. She was sure that with her supposed failure to help get the trashy magazine on the map that she would never get her foot in the door of a real news crew. Her boss already made it clear that she had been a disappointment.

"Is it making you uncomfortable, then?" He raised a brow, watching her closely. After a moment, he moved his fingers to the books on the shelf nxt to him, scanning the titles. "You seem afraid that I'll attack you at any moment."

"I thought you were halfway decent until you killed two strangers right in front of me to prove your point." Her tone was flat, knowing that she must look like she hadn't slept well since that night. "Now I don't know what you'll do."

"You think I killed them to prove my point?" He gave a soft laugh, shaking his head. "I killed them for a very different reason." Glancing down at her again at the tone of her voice, he raised a brow. "You think I'd kill you in the middle of a library in broad daylight?"

"No. But if you found out my name, what else could you find out about me?" She asked, shaking her head with a frown. "Why do it, then? Why not wait until I was gone, when I wasn't close enough to feel the blood, close enough to see the light fade from their eyes?"

He raised a brow. "I was in the middle of work. You were spying so I made sure you weren't running off anywhere. That didn't mean I had time to stop my work. I had other things I needed to do that night. Waiting for you to walk away, making sur eyou weren't going directly to the poice station or going to find some hidden SD card I didn't know about and killing the two thieves wasn't something I had time to do individually. So I took care of both issues at once."

"So it was more convenient for me to watch a double murder from the closest seats." She'd burned the clothes she had been wearing in case he had tried to pin the murder on her. And, if she were truly honest with herself, she didn't need any more reminding of what had happened. "It's hard not to wonder if I was going to die too when your goons had the gun cocked at my head."

"It was more convenient, and I had previous engagements to get to. I could have just killed you. Would that have made you feel better?" He raised a brow, surprised by the...sass this woman was offering him. Wasn't she afraid? As he heard the last, he gave a osft hum. "My men...get a little trigger happy sometimes. But I gave no order to even have a gun on you."

"Sounds like they have a hard time listening." She commented without thinking, shaking her head at how calm he seemed over the thought of killing two strangers and nearly killing a third. "If that's the case, I'm glad to be alive...if someone sneezed, I might have been body number three."

"They wouldn't have actually shot without an order. Hyuk just likes...to scare people into submission." He chuckled softly, raising a brow as he looked up at the girl. "I'm..very surprised...that you're so relaxed around me now. Aren't you afraid? I could still kill you now, right here. And no one here would bat an eye."
