"Does it work? Just...shutting it off like that?" She asked without thinking, leaning forward a little in her seat.

"It works." He nodded, frowning. Most of the time...though there was one that came to mind that he never had been able to shake. The woman... He frowned again, looking at her empty glass and filling it again. "You seem interested to know more about me. Am I so fascinating to you?"

"That has to take a lot of strength." She ran her thumb over her lip, thanking him softly as he refilled her glass. "I...I guess you are. I can let you ask more questions, I didn't mean to pry so deep." She added, face flushing slightly.

He tilted his head, raising a brow. "Are you worried about me, Miss?" That would do for a question for now. She was...far too interesting than he'd like to admit. The last time this had happened, he'd had to kill the woman.

"A...a little." She nodded with a self-conscious chuckle, taking a drink from the glass before her. "That has to sound so weird. But that...just sounds like a burden on you to just bottle things up like that all the time."

"You're worried about the man you were previously so convinced wanted you dead?" Raising a brow, he gave a soft hum. "Should I not bottle things up, then?"

"Well...yes, I am." She felt her smile widen, shrugging lightly. "You shouldn't...it's easy in the moment, but it will tear you apart if you don't have anyone to confide in..." She knew that one from experience. Working to support her brother's habits since they were teenagers and only expecting him to show any care or attention toward her when he needed something...but Hyunmin was the only person she had in the world.

He watched her for another long mometn before giving a mslal smile. "So who shall I confide in? You? Would you listen to me?" He couldn't hold back a small smirk before he leaned back to watch her with a small smile. "...shall I take you home, miss?"

"I don't think you would, but I'd listen if you wanted." She offered, pushing her worries for the brother that had all but abandoned her to die to the back of her mind. "Sure. I hope I haven't taken up too much of your night." She added, feeling the warmth of the drink easing her stress.

Tilting his head at her response, he thought her words over for a moment before nodding. "Perhaps I'll take you up on that offer some day." With a small smile, he stood, offering a small wave to his mother who let out a loud curse and ordered him to come give her a proper farewell or he'd be punished. Flushing softly, he offered a soft apology before making his way to the woman and hugging her gently.

Covering her mouth to stifle a laugh, she stood as well, having to stop for a moment to let her ribs protest the movement and settle back down again. That would take some getting used to, she thought with a wince, hand moving to her side for a moment.

As the woman stood, he moved to help her, hand wrapping lightly around her waist to steady her as he asked softly if she was alright. "You have to go slowly, you're still injured."

Leaning a little into him once again, she nodded, waiting for the wave of pain to pass. "I'm...I'm fine. I just forgot." She muttered, straightening a little as standing grew to be bearable once again. "...Sorry." She added with a weak laugh. "I have to get used to this..."

"Don't be sorry. I understand the change." With a small frown, he held her securely to his side. "Tell me, where do you live? I'll besure to get you home safe."

Surprised that he was keeping her so close, she told him the address of a run-down complex a few blocks away. After a moment, she added, "...Thank you, ahjussi. For helping me, and for all of this. And tolerating my obnoxious questions." She added with a smile.

Frowning slightly at her words, he nodded. He'd known the place well. Hed used to live there, after all, when he first started out. As he heard the last, he glanced down at her and offered a small smile. "I'm helping you to make up for the unfairness you've suffered because of me. That's not a reason to tahnk me. It's not out of the goodness of my heart. And you'd do well to remember that." After a oment, he smirked. "And as for the questions...I enjoy them."

"I'm grateful either way. Even if it's just business, it helps me a lot." She shrugged lightly, looking up to him at the last. "You like being interrogated by someone too curious for their own good?"

"I like meeting a curious and interesting girl who isn't a fraid to ask me whatever crosses her mind." He raised a brow, smiling slightly as he set off toward her home.

"Is that interesting, or is that foolish?" She chuckled softly, falling into step with him.
