The Alley
NoWealthNoRuin HK's Territory
Much less intricate than the Rabbit Hole's labyrinth, just a small series of back roads behind the Shooting Star and the other businesses on the block.

"It's not any of my business to tell anyone." She shook her head, frowning slightly. "But...what about you? If you're so busy looking out for him, looking out for everyone else...why not let someone look out for you? Even for a little while?"

"And you want to e that someone?" He raised a brow, fingers moving up to his hair, ruffling it gently. His hair was getting too long... "The someone to look out for me?" He shook his head, leaning back and propping his feet up on her bed. "And how would you do that?"

"Letting you vent if you needed it. I could be a sounding board, someone you could open up to in perfect confidence...or I'd just look for ways to pull you out of your head and make you smile a little. Find something to enjoy about life." She offered with a smile, knowing that it was more likely than not that he would refuse. After all, she was nothing to him compared to the friends and teammates he'd had for years.

"You want me to vent to you? Do you have any idea how...frightening that could be? How annoying or even cruel I could be with my venting? There's a reason I don't talk much, Ms. Go." He shook his head, leaning it back against the chair with a soft sigh. "You seem concerned for me."

"If it's on your mind, what does it matter if it's polite or not?" She asked, shaking her head as well. "It's bothering you. That's what matters." After a moment, she hummed softly. "I am concerned. You seem like you've been spending years bottling everything up..."

"Bottling everything up is how I survive. It's how I got my job and I'm good at my job. It's why everyone is afraid of me. It's te smart thing for me to do." He looked up at the girl, raising a brow. "You don' care if Im polite or not?"

"I don't care if you're polite. I care if you're honest." She shook her head, frown deepening. "And what happens when that pain doesn't go away? When it gets to be so much that you can't hold it back? What happens then?"

Thinking her words over, he nodded. "So...you want me to confide in you. You don't care that I'm broken or damaged, you want me to talk to you about my problems even though you don't know how bad they could be? Or how stupid they could be?" As he heard the last, thinking about what would happen when the pain got to be too much. Wasn't it too much now? He was basically on a suicide mission as it was...

"You're not broken, Daeyoung." She insisted, shaking her head. "You're just not taking care of yourself. I don't care if you think your problems are bad or stupid or too big to let someone else in on. They're problems that are bothering you. Letting it out, getting it off of your chest will help you. Any of your problems are important to me."

He scoffed, rolling his eyes as he leaned back, letting them fall closed. "I'm not talkign to you about my problems, Eunji. They're my problems and I can handle them myself." Not to mention anyone could hear, could walk in, he couldn't afford to 'elet it out'.

(Once she's not on bedrest he's gonna confide in her. XD maybe ex shows up and he really struggles with it)

((Oh nooooo poor guy. XD))

She wanted to push it, to insist that he as tearing himself apart by keeping things inside, but she knew that he was the type to shut down even more tightly the more someone tried to convince him to change his mind. "All right." She said at last. "I don't think that's a good idea, but I guess that's an opinion we don't share. Just..." Chewing on her lip for a moment, she thought her next words over carefully. "The door's open, okay? Anytime you need it."

He kept his eyes closed for a long moment before finally looking at her. He didn't want her thinking he was upset or angry, not with her. With a deep breath, he nodded. "The door's open. Thank you. I'll...I'll remember that if things change."

Giving a weak smile in the wake of his agreement, she nodded. That was all she could really ask for, after all. "Okay, deal." She said at last.

After a moment, he cleared his throat, leaning forward again to look at her. "...So..what do you want to talk about?"

Sep 20, 2017, 11:58pm

Giving a weak smile, she brushed her hair back from her face. "Well...is there anything you do here that you can tell me about? The work you do, the things you see?"

He hummed softly, nodding. "I do a lot of shoveling...as you saw earlier."

((Scintillating subject matter, Dae. XDD))

Eunji was sure that this had to be a reward for good behavior. After three days of bed rest--an incident involving a nightmare sent her out of bed during night one and reopened her stiches again, needing an extra day to recover--but Chihoon had cleared her to walk short distances, and the first thing she had done was to set her alarm in time to wake up and join the nurses outside. Still in the pajamas she had borrowed from the supply room, she stood with two of Moyoun's friends as the soldiers passed by on their morning run. They had altered their path in the last week to pass in front of the buildings more often than they had before, making a point to smile, wink, and show off as much as they could without being too obvious. She couldn't hide a smile as she stood on her tiptoes to see a little better, resting a hand on the gate. One man, close to her age, made eye contact with her, shooting her a wink that made her face heat. It was going to be a good day, she decided, joining the other girls in their hushed giggles.

(haha! XD)

Daeyoung had gone to the medicube to check on his new friend, but when he found it empty and the girl gone, he started to pnaic until he heard the doctor tell him where she'd gone. Relaxing a bit, he made his way outside, wondering where she'd be...until he heard the giggles. Approaching the girl, standing just behind her in time to see one of the younger soldiers flash wink and smile, he tensed, standing a little taller. When the soldier saw him, his smile fell and he immediately faced forward to avoid the terrifying man's gaze. After the crowd passed, he cleared his throat. "This is how you choose to spend your first day out of bed?"

She saw the man pale, almost seeming to be afraid. She nearly asked Nurse Choi what had happened before jumping at the new voice, letting out a startled sound before she turned to see her friend. "O-oh...good morning, Daeyoung-si." She greeted with a smile, relaxing at the familiar sight. "I was up in time, and I keep hearing the other girls talk about how great the show is...I wanted to see for myself." She concluded with a shrug.

The burning in his chest wasn't jealousy. It definitely was not jealousy. And it wasn't jealous that made him reach down and grab her by the wrist. It wasn't jealousy that had him pull her away from the nurses, ducking between two of the buildings to be away from sight. And it certainly wasnt jealousy that had him put her near a wall, leaning over her, towering over her without getting too close... Yeah. He wasn't jealous. He bit his lip, looking down at the girl in silence for a moment before clearing his throat. "The doctor said small walks. Don't strain yourself."
