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.

"Probably." She couldn't keep from chuckling, flush darkening at the comment. "I never said that I wasn't."

Seeing the flush, he couldn't hodl back a small smile. He moved toward the entrance of the aisle, clearing his throat. "A strange woman is more likely to come to terms with what she saw than a normal one. Maybe you arent' so hopeless.

"There's hope for me after all?" She teased, surprised by his reaction. This conversation was getting stranger by the second, but she couldn't say that she minded. It was worlds better than their first impression of each other.

"There's hope." He nodded, smiling slightly, surprised by the teasing once again. She had to still be afraid of him..wasn't she? Was she following him...? "There's plenty of hope. You've just got to take advantage of it.Talk to someone. If you don't, I"ll track you down myself."

"Is that a threat or a promise?" She really needed to stop talking before she got herself into trouble, offering a small smile as she shifted the book he had suggested to her in her hands. "I'll talk to someone, promise. I'd rather not end up on your shit list." She added with a chuckle.

"Maybe a bit of both." He chuckled softly, shaking his head. This girl was...insane. How could she be so comfortable with him after what he'd done? As she promised to speak to someone about what happened, he nodded. "Then I'd better get going. Give you time to talk to someone, come to terms with everything."

Nodding, she wondered just what the hell had happened...and just why it felt as if she had started on a path toward uncharted territory. "Sorry for taking up so much of your time." She said out of habit, knowing that he had mentioned leaving for a lunch appointment over ten minutes ago.

"You didn't take my time. I gave it." He shook his head, waving her off as he left the aisle and glanced back at her again. "You should learn to stop apologizing for things that require no apologies."

"With how offended the world can get, it's hard to tell what doesn't." She pointed out with a soft chuckle. "But fair enough."

Nodding, he gave a small chuckle. "Fair enough." After a moment, he cleared his throat. "I'm...going to get something to eat, would you like to join me?" Of course she didn't. She wasn't that insane...

"Weren't you...meeting someone for lunch?" She asked, tilting her head at the offer. He couldn't mean that, could he? What sort of conversation could she offer that would be of any interest to him?

He hummed softly, shaking his head. "No one important, no one I wanted to meet. I was going to cancel and just take something home and eat it there. I can still do that since you seem so opposed, and I don't exactly blame you." He laughed softly, shaking his head. "It was good to see you again. I...I guess good is the right word.

"N-no, don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed." She shook her head quickly, fingers tightening on the book in her hands. Clearing her throat to gain better control of her voice, she tried again. "I mean...if you'd actually want to go eat...I would, too. But if you're just offering to be polite, you don't have to worry."

He stopped, turning to face her again, brow furrowing. "You...want to go eat with me?" How could she possibly want to go eat with the man that nearly had her brains blown out?

"Why not? You're interesting to talk to when there are no firearms involved." She teased, shrugging lightly in the wake of his surprise. "And...to be honest, seeing more of the man instead of the mob boss is...helpful. I'm not half as nervous as I was when I first bumped into you."

Kim Jaerim stood at the top of the quarry, camera held to his eye as he snapped several shots of the area. The trees surrounding the cliffs, the water pooling in the basin from the recent rains, every winding path that led from the edge of the stone down to the very bottom. To any odd passerby he was simply a young man, maybe a student, taking in the details of a quiet, peaceful site. What he was truly doing was mapping out the area to ensure that he knew every way in and out. This was a common place for the grunts in the local gang families to conduct business or dump the aftermath of their rough investigations for the "cleaners" to find and dispose of. He was honestly surprised he didn't come across any of the victims of this week. His father's latest orders sat in the back of his mind as he stared across the trees to his side, snapping another picture. He would be prepared, he was sure. There was no reason for this to go off without a hitch.

(I'm thinking this girl is someone his dad wanted to bang, that rejected him and maybe managed to run off with some information that the guy wants back. So...killer kim has to get the information that she stole before he kills her, which means he has to get up close to her instead of shooting from far away, maybe threaten her with a knife, give her a chance to acually try to talk to him which will confuse the hell out of him. Maybe Killer Kim's adoption papers/real identity is what she took. So he can find out later that he was kidnapped from his real dad by the guy that "adopted" him later.. xD Either that...or he can take out his one target here, she sees it, and so now he's gotta figure out who she is and kill her before she tells anyone what she saw. Which do you think?)

((Honestly your first idea sound the most fun. Because he's got his orders but also his whole life is a lie so what the fuck is he supposed to do when the person giving him orders is also the person who robbed him of a normal life/any happiness at all? And she can teach him how to human because he likely won't know how to deal with his emotions other than anger and murderous intent. XD))

(Works for me. So maybe she's on her way to give the information over to someone who can use it, hoping that'll keep her alive...but the people she's supposed to hand it over to, maybe Kim has already killed them? Also..she can't fight. But i'm thinking at one point when she's trying to get away from him, she manages to hit him and he can get mad and she can get surprised. XD)

Shit. Shit. Fuck. Shit. Those were the only words she could think as she made her way down to the Quarry to meet up with Daehwan. She'd found some file, something she didnt even know what was, in an effort to escape the sexual and then murderous advances of Moon Ilsuk. The man had been desperate for her attention, for her, for years now...but this last time she'd turned him down, the man had tried to kill her. He'd managed to stab her, actually...but the hospital staff wouldn't believe her. So now, almost a week later, Kim MinJun found herself on the run from the police, from the man and his thugs, and now from some killer she'd been told was sent her way. A professional assassin. He'd hired a professional assassin. The only way to end this, to get her life back, would be to turn that file over to someone who could bring him down. Someone who could stop the man before anyone else had to die.

((That would make sense. So he's scouting the area, making sure that he's there to head off the drop. XD And we can give him the "you made me bleed you bitch" reaction. XD))

He heard the footsteps approaching before he saw the newcomer approaching. Kim Minjun was who he was looking for...he was honestly surprised that she would come in person. An experienced criminal would send someone in her place to give the information she held. The people she was supposed to meet were already taken care of, likely settling to the bottom of the water gathered in the quarry's base as he took another picture of the trees in the distance. He was getting some pretty great shots, he thought distantly. Maybe he could sell one or two to a magazine for a little extra money. As the figure approached, he seemed not to notice, bending to take a drink from the water bottle sitting in his camera bag.
