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.

"If you'd like. Whatever you're comfortable with is fine. But you don't have to apologize for calling me by name." He turned his gaze back to her, trying to ignore the comfort he felt in her touch, offering a small smile instead. As he aw her smile, he visibly relaxed, nodding. "And are you? Taking it easy? Drinking water?

Holding up the bottle of water with her free hand, she nodded. "As much as I can. I'm surprised Dr. Lee didn't get onto me for being outside. I kind of gave the nurses the slip when no one was looking..." She chuckled softly, smile brightening a little at the sight of his own. She wasn't sure what was on his mind that made him guard his emotions so carefully, but if she was able to give him enough of a distraction to forget about it for a few moments, she was happy to do it.

"He's been talking to his wife all morning. I"m sure he didn't even notice. He's a great doctor...when he's not distracted." He chuckled softly, nodding. After a moent, he relaxed, pleased by her words and sinking back onto the bench next to her. "I"m sure with time and a bit more maturity...he'll be one of the best. I look forward to it."

"He loves her a lot. I'm sure being far away from her like this is hard for them." She shook her head with a chuckle, realizing that she still held his arm and releasing it with a soft apology as he sat down once again. "I agree...he'll do really well. Especially with Dr. Kang as his mentor."

"He does. It's...sweet." To see love like that. Love he couldn't have. Love he didn't deserve... "Being away from her..must be killing him." He knew the feeling well. As he heared the last, he turned his gaze back to her. "You know..my captain has a crush on Dr. Kang..?"

"He's made it pretty obvious when he drops by the medicube." She nodded with a soft laugh. "He's so lovesick, and I don't think he knows how obvious it is. And she's got it pretty bad for him, too--she keeps fumbling with things and complaining about him to the nurses whenever he leaves. It's like watching a live drama; it's pretty great."

With a small smile, he looked back at the woman. "He drops by the medicube often?" Sijin was hopeless. He allways had been but he'd never seen his commanding officer more head over heels for anyone. "Like watching a live drama? You watch dramas?"

"To check on a soldier, to drop off mail, to ask if they need anything, to tell Dr. Kang good morning...any reason he can." She nodded with a soft laugh. At the last, her face flushed, taking another drink. "...A few." A lot, her mind corrected. There were several she was fond of.

"To tell her good morning?" He shook his head, rolling his eyes. "He does everything he can to get out of work, it's ridiculous. And it doesn't help thag despite her interest Dr. Kang has made it very obvious nothing will happen between them.."

"Yet. I've seen how they interact...I think something's got to give before they're caught making out behind one of the buildings." She chuckled, shaking her head. "Does he usually give you that much of a headache?"

He frowned. "He wouldn't get caught. AT least...not behind a building. He's the type to announce to everyone that he cares for someone." He hummed softly, looking back at her. "But from what I understand she doesn't like his job..and she's not about to change her mind about that. AS much as she cares about him it doesn't look like she can look past that."

"There's not a lot like that around." She pointed out, humming softly at the last. "If that's what she's hung up on...that will be a problem they'll have to work around. Or work through. I know that what you do isn't that palatable to most people, but...it's necessary. It's not like you're murderers...you're soldiers. And I'm living proof that you save more lives than you take."

"Or she'll decide he's not worth working through it." He raised a brow, looking up at her. "Are you really so sure they'll get together? She seems pretty determined." AS she spoke about his work, what he did, he turned his gaze back to her. Right...she'd seen a lot of what he did. He smiled slightly. "So..my work doesn't bother you at all? Knowing I do things like that..often?"

"I don't think she will. The way they look at each other, how they interact...it's more than just being attracted to each other. They both know there's something deeper there. I think something might happen to make her see that her ideals are too black-and-white in a world as gray as ours. Or if not, they'll realize that being without each other is worse than being too stubborn to give it a shot." Flushing as she realized she was talking to much, she cursed herself inwardly for being such a romantic. "You've seen the work I do and the area I lived in. I know the world is awful...and I'm glad you're around to make sure it's a little better. As long as you're not abusing the power you have, it doesn't bother me at all."

"You're...really rooting for them, aren't you? " With a soft laugh, he glanced back at his captain, watching the lovesick fool stumble over to where the medicube sat. At the last, he turned his gaze back to her. "What about dating? Would you still feel that way if you wanted to date a soldier liked me?"

"I think they'll be happy together." She nodded with a smile, the expression gaining strength as she saw the captain in question pass by. "Dating? If I really care about them, absolutely. As long as no one's getting hurt, I'd rather be happy, even with differences in opinion."

Smiling at her answer, he nodded. They would be happy together. If they ever actually admitted that. "I just wonder...I've seen so many soldiers lose their girlfriends over thir work... No one on my team is tied down by anyone because we are...particularly dangerous. It makes me curious if there are any people out there that don't care about the job...if there's anyone for any one of us. I'm going on eight years in the military and...I've never seen a relationship work out with someone in my position. With any of my men...It's..nice to hear someone say it wouldn't matter...even if I'm not quite sure I belivee it."

"You better believe it. I can't be the only one in the world that would care about a person more than what they do. If I love them...I'd do anything I could to make it work. And I'd hope they would do the same." She gave a wistful smile before shaking her head. "Don't give up hope, Daeyoung-si. Someone's out there for you, I know it."

His brow furrowed at her words. "I wasn't asking for me. I have no desire to be with anyone..." he cleared his throat, shaking his head. "I don't care if someone is out there, I'm not looking for her." He had no desire to go through that pain again. "I haven't given up hope. I never had hope from the start."

"Well, I believe the same thing for your men. And for you." She shrugged lightly, taking another drink. "Even if you don't think you have the time or anything right now."
