"The other two sound like they have a lot of people coming to them either way." She pointed out with a soft hum. Then, after a moment, she asked without thinking, "This is...a hard business to get into, isn't it? I mean, with how much pull the other two have?"

"But the other two keep getting screwed over because of it. I have rarely had anyone stab me in the back. And those that do don't live to do it again" He smirked before hearing the last. He glanced down at her, raising a brow. "ARe you looking to start your own branch?"

"Me? I can't even keep my own ass out of trouble thanks to my bleeding heart. This isn't the first time I've been screwed over, especially by Hyunmin. I wouldn't last a minute trying to lead a business like this." She chuckled softly, shaking her head.

Unable to hold backa small smile at her words, he nodded. "I can see that." As he steered her toward an outdoor cafe, he led her to a chair before moving to the cook and muttering something in his ear. He returned to their table, sitting across from her and letting his eyesmove to hers and hold their gaze.

"Even when we were kids, I was the one he would call when he got into trouble he couldn't get out of." She shook her head with a sigh, brightening a little as they reached the cafe. Easing herself into the seat and wincing at the new pain the shift brought, she watched him move. "What was that?" She asked as he returned, curiosity overpowering the voice in her mind that warned her to stop asking so many questions.

He raised a brow, unable to hold back a small smirk before looking down up at the counter again and waving over a waiter to bring a couple bottles of soju. "You ask a lot of questions. ARen't you afraid of me?"

At the last, she felt her face heat, looking down at the table with a nervous chuckle. "Well...yes. I'm...too curious for my own good, I guess."

"Are you afraid if you ask questions I'll hurt you?" He tilted his head, watching her much like a snke watches a mouse, raising a brow and smiling.

"I...I'm not sure." She admitted, unable to look up at him as she brushed her hair behind her ear. Biting her lip for a moment as she thought, she shook her head. "Not...not for asking questions, I think...but if I learned too much, then I'm less sure. But asking questions would annoy you at worst. Not really anything that would throw a wrench in what you do."

He hummed softly, nodding at her words, thinking them over. After a moment, he cleared his throat, leaning back to watch her closely. "How about a deal, then. You can ask me anythng you want, anything at all, and I'll answer honestly. But you have to extend the same courtesy."

"I'm not that interesting, ahjussi...but that sounds pretty fair." She said at last, looking up to him once again. She still felt like a cornered mouse...but perhaps this might make the snake before her seem more human. "Who should ask first?"

He smirked. "How old are you?" How about they start simple, his mind mumbled absently. "You seem young."

"Not that young." She defended with a soft laugh. "I'm twenty-two. What about you?"

Smiling slightly, he nodded. "I'm twenty-seven. So you're young enough."

"That's only five years. You say that like there's a much bigger gap between us." She pointed out, surprised that he was so young after all. He seemed like the type that had seen far more than his age suggested.

"When you're in my line of work five years is like a decade." He nodded, smilng slightly. "Does it surprise you...? My age?"

"A little." She admitted with a small smile of her own. "You just...seem older. Looking in your eyes, I mean. Like you've seen a lot."

"You expected me to be older with a face like this? " He smirked, raising a brow below he shook his head. "I've seen a lot, yes. .does that make me old?"

"Some people look young. I'm bad at telling how old someone is." She shook her head. "It doesn't make you old, but you seem...wiser, I guess. World-weary. I'm...not making any sense, am I?" She asked, giving a self-conscious laugh.

"You're making perfect sense." With a soft smile, a kind smile to the waiter, he gave a soft thanks as the soju was placed in front of them. "Wiser. I like that word. You think I"m wise, then?:
