"i only ask because of... Of the song." He was surprised to find he was... Unwilling to remove her from his arms, but he'd do it if she asked. She was just...the perfect height.

"I don't mind the song." She shrugged with a smile. "I mean...I didn't expect this to be as fun as it is. I thought for sure I'd fall or something."

He looked down at her for a moment before he smiled slightly. "Then lets keep going." Taking advantage of the intimate song, he pulled her closer, hand resting at the small of her back.

Feeling her pulse jump at the shift, she moved her hand back to his shoulder, the fingers of her free hand tightening around his. "I don't think I've heard this one before..."

As he felt her hand on his shoulder, he looked down at her, unawar that his fingers had slipped just barely under her shirt to rest on the skin of her back. "It's a good one."

"I love the sound of it." She nodded, humming absently with the chorus as she picked up the melody. Feeling warm fingers at the small of her back, she tried to hide a shiver.

As she shivered, he looked down at her, concern crossing his face for only a moment. It was warm in the bar...and she was shivering? "Are you alright?"

"Yeah, I'm fine." She assured him quickly, shaking her head. "I just got a chill, that's all."

"A chill? It's hot in here." He frowned, lifting his hand from her back and moving it to her forehead, he gave a soft hum. "Are you sick?"

A flush tinted her cheeks as she felt his hand at her forehead, surprised by his sudden concern. "No, I feel fine." then, trying to lighten the mood, she added, "Am I worrying you, Mr. Gangster?"

His own cheeks flushed lightly, just barely, glad for the dim light as his hand fell away and returned to her back before he cleared his throat. "...Just...I can't imagine why you'd shiver like that. It's...really hot in here. Or is that just me?"

"Is that a comment or fishing for a compliment?" She teased, smiling as she hoped the shift meant he wasn't quite as impossibly collected as he made himself out to be.

"It's a comment." He laughed softly, looking down at her. "Though a complimnt would be nice. I don't get them often." Flashing her a wink, he grinned.

"I'm surprised, with how you look." She grinned, shaking her head. "You can't be that intimidating to people that know you."

"Most everyone is intimidated by me, honestly." He chuckled softly, nodding before he looked around the room. "It's getting a little crowded in here..." Wht had gotten into him? He'd never acted like this before... He was about to speak again when he tensed, watching a man in a dark suit walk with purpose in his step toward him. As the man approached, he layed his hand on Yongguk's arm, whispering in his ear before he continued through the crowd. With a soft sigh, he glanced down at the girl. "..Could you excuse me for a moment?"

She had been about to speak when the stranger approached, nodding at the question. "Uh...sure." She said at last, deciding that another quip would probably be poorly timed. Never a dull moment in the life of a gangster, she thought absently.

Giving her a small smile, he walked back the way the stranger had come from, disappearing through a door. He was gone for about fifteen minutes, enough time to torture their hostage a bit, get an answer and clean off most of the blood that had splattered on his face. He'd missed a couple of dots near his eye, though he didn't notice in his effort to get back to the woman quickly. As he returned to the dance floor, he smiled again. "I'm sorry. That..took longer than I'd planned."

Hajin had returned to the bar, sitting on a stool and watching other couples dance with a soft smile on her lips. She couldn't hide the fact hat she was curious about where her companion had gone--or what trouble he was getting into--but after a few songs, she brightened a little when he returned. "Don't worry about it," She waved him off with a smile. "I guess you're never really off the clock--" She broke off as she turned to face him completely, seeing the dark flecks near one eye. "You have, um." She began, pointing to her own eye to mirror the placement. "Something just there..."

"I'm sorry." As she pointed, he brought his fingers up to the marks, wiping at them to smear a red trail on his cheek before he managed to wipe it all away. With a small frown, he looked at her again. "IS it gone?"

Seeing the color before he cleared the streak away, she nodded as it vanished completely. "Yeah, it's gone. Can I ask who was doing the bleeding, or is that classified?" She half-joked, surprised that the sight didn't frighten her at all.
