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

(XDD and then later when they're actually getting along, he can mention her having made him bleed... XD)

As her eyes scanned the area, searching for the man, the very creepy man actually, she realized the place was empty. At least, Daehwan and his men weren't around... Had she been stood up..? Did they not believe that she had important information...? Did they just want to let her die...? She shivered, tightening her jacket around herself, glancing back over her shoulder, half expecting that assassin to be there, she'd been glancing over her shoulder for two days since she'd been told the person was after her. She didnt' know age, height, appearance, she didn't even know if it was a man or a woman that was coming for her...but she knew they were after her. That much she was sure of. As she turned her attention back in front of her, she stopped walking as she saw a man sitting at the edge of the quarry, holding a camera and taking a drink. He was only about five yards away...and she didn't recognize him. A student, maybe? Takiing picutres of the quarry. He seemed innocent enough...but his eyes... Her thoughts trailed off as realized she'd made a startled sound that had likely gained his attention. She gave a small bow in greeting, but didn't say a work, too afraid her voice would shake if she tried to speak. After all...she still felt like someone was after her, even then.

((When he starts feeling things other than boredom and murder. XD))

At the sound, he raised an eyebrow, glancing over to her and studying her for a moment. That was his mark, no doubt about it. He bowed in return, the act natural, his expression never changing as he replaced the bottle and held the camera up to study the shots he had taken. Things would be much neater if she didn't expect the attack, he knew. He would wait until she had her back turned, when she thought she was safe...perhaps when she turned around and started back toward the city when her informant wouldn't show up. A clean, easy job. He wondered if his father had expected this to be so simple when he set the task.

(Yyyep. XD and she can be like holy shit I made you bleed??????)

Glad when the man turned back toward the camera, studying hte images he'd already captured. As she looked up at him, watched him almot as if she expected him to attack her at any moment, she wondered where Daehwan could be... She was smart enough to leave the files in a hidden place...anyone that was sent after her, to kill her, wouldn't be able to until those were found...but she'd had to make sure Daehwan would use them and the use would protect her, too. But he was already ten minutes late. As several more minutes passed, she realized the man wasn't going to come. Glancing back at the man, she wondered if she should say goodbye before she left or if she should leave him to his work. Deciding on the latter, she took a small step back, still facing him for a few feet before she turned, putting her back to him to leave. She was being watched..but by who? who was after her...?

Seeing her turn, he watched her before setting the camera into the bag, pulling a knife from his boot as he straightened. As silently as he could, he approached her, moving quickly to catch up to her before she got within shouting distance of anyone that could pass by.

Unaware that the man approached her, she slipped into a small path between two darkened buildings, keeping to the shadows in an effort to lose whoever it was was after her. She didn't hear the knife, didn't hear the man...but the sense that someone was just behind her was enough to make her walk a little quicker until she was covered in shadows.

It only took a few steps before he pulled her back against his chest, arm winding around hers to prevent her from fighting as the other pressed the knife to her neck. "Where is the file." He spoke lowly, bending a little to make sure she heard him clearly. "Don't scream. This will be over quickly if you make this easy."

As she felt his arm, as she heard his voice, she nearly let out a scream before she felt the knife. Tensing, hearing his words, she felt the blade bite into her skin, blood slipping down her neck just slightly. "W-who...who are you?" The man was behind her...if she could just turn, if she could face him...maye she could gather her thoughts, maybe she could get out of this.

"Where is the file?" He asked again, digging the blade just a little deeper to punctuate his point. She shouldn't make it difficult, he thought, not wanting to kill her before she could give him the location of the papers he needed. It would be too much trouble to search.

As she felt the knife again, she gave a soft hiss, tilting her head just slightly in an effort to get away from the knife. As she felt his words against her ear, she was certain the panic that raced through her meant this was the end...She tried to see behind her, but she couldn't turn enough. Instead, she spoke again, voice trembling. "...w-w-wait. Wait a moment. I...I'll tell you. Just...just let me..let me turn around."

"Don't run." He didn't need to threaten her, knowing the promise was in the blade. Slowly, he released her, knife still poised. He fully expected her to bolt. A part of him wanted her to, just for the excitement of having to give chase. his last several appointments were entirely too simple.

She nodded slowly, feeling herself able to breathe as he released her. She turned slowly, body shaking in fear as she finally faced the boy she'd seen earlier. It was him...? The photographer...? As her eyes met his, a killer's eyes she now saw, she felt her breath catch. She took a small step back, feeling her back hit the wall. "...who are you...?" Her voice trembled as much as her body did, her hair fell in her face, blood dripped down her neck.

He remained silent, studying her as she studied him. She was afraid. Thinking quickly, trying to find a way out. He was sure that she was trying to find a way to distract him. For a moment he was mesmerized by the sight of fresh blood against her pale skin...his eyes moved to the wound at her neck before moving back to hers. "It doesn't matter. Where is the file? I won't ask again."

"What, I'm about to die and I can't even know the name of my killer?" She still watched him, thinking of something, anything she could do. She'd taken some self defense classes..but this man was a trained killer. If she made any kind of break for it, she'd have to do it at the exact right moment, or she'd be dead anyway... "Tell me you at least know my name. If you're going to kill me, you should at least know who I am, right?"

He frowned at the question, shaking his head slightly before forcing his expression back into neutrality. "What does it matter? I know your name, Kim Minjun." She was trying to find a way out, he could tell. This was the most talkative any of his marks had gotten, but he was having a hard time letting the words fade to the back of his mind. Where most were simple animal noises in the wake of his work, this was...harder to ignore.

"So you know my name.." She nodded slowly. "Do you know my age? Who I am? What I do? Do you know why you're after me or what's in the files you're looking for? Do you know why you're supposed to kill me...why I can't survive? Did you even care to find out? Or are you just a mindless killer...?" As she watched him, she knew she should stop talking, find a way out....shit. "Are you still not going to tell me your name? I'm going to die anyway...what's the harm...?"

"I wasn't given any of that information." He shook his head, frown deepening. What was she doing? Why couldn't he ignore her? "I'm not anyone. My name doesn't matter to you." He needed to stop talking. Maybe she would give him the information he needed if he knocked her out, took her to one of the warehouses in the city for an interrogation...but he was horrible with the intimidation game. He always got impatient and went for the kill.

"I"m twenty three. No siblings, no parents. I"m an orphan. I worked in a bar as a bartender." Think. Think. Think. " I'm a real person you're trying to kill. I have a life. I have friends, I have...people that care about me. ANd you're going to end it just like that...?" She shook her head before looking up at him again. "I deserve to know who it is that's killed me. I deserve to know who's ass I"m haunting." She felt her fingers curl into a fist. A car was driving by...if she could jump in front of it and manage a ride...she could get away. "I deserve--" before she could finish the statement, she moved, swinging a hard punch to his jaw, managing to duck down before hte knife could cut her worse, and rush toward the opening of the two buildings as fast as her legs would carry her. She was in track in high school..thank god for that.

He was shocked by the sudden pain blooming across his jaw, teeth cutting into his lip as she ran. He brought his fingers to his lip for a moment, eyes widening as they came away red. That was quite enough. Taking off after her, he was glad for his training. She was much faster than he expected. This would be the first and last time that one of his marks managed to talk their way into distracting him.

As she ran, hearing him pounding after her, she stepped into the clearing, just in time to jump in front of the car. It hit her, not hard, but enough to bring a bit of pain bursting through her right side. As the driver exited the car, coming to ask her if she was okay, she looked up to see the killer nearly to them. "Get...get back in the car!" She climbed to her feet, managing to run to the passenger side. THe driver, confusion but understanding that he was in trouble as well, rushed back to his car and climbed into the driver's side, throwing the car into drive.

Jaerim's lips pulled back into a snarl as he caught up with the car, hiding the knife before he came into view and standing firmly in front of the car. An innocent wouldn't dare hit him, he thought, would he? If so, this was about to get much more interesting. "Get out. Now." He couldn't remember the last time he had raised his voice, but he nearly shouted the words to her.
