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.

He watched her, tilting her head for a moment before another small smile spread over his lips. AFter a moment, he cleared his throat. "...I could just get you an extension, if you don't want me to pay your rent. Would that be acceptable payment for this card?"

"That would make me feel a lot better than taking money I haven't earned." She found the man looked much less intimidating when he smiled, brushing her hair out of her face with a small relieved smile of her own. Then, after a moment, she added, "But...why offer to help me? I mean, I took pictures of you without permission--which is a huge problem, even if you can't tell me why--and I practically assaulted you a minute ago."

HE nodded. " Then I'll get you an extension." At the question, he turned his gaze back to the woman again and he raised a brow. "You said yourself that you don't usually do pictures like that. You're not a bad person, right? I won't put you on the street simply because I am unable to return this card. I'll help you with what I can because it's not your fault I can't return it." He really would, if he could... But he couldn't.

"You're not able to tell me whose fault it is, are you?" She asked, raising an eyebrow as she pulled her jacket a little more tightly around her. "Mysterious, cryptic, kind-hearted...are you sure you're not Batman, ahjussi?"

He watched her, raising a brow before smirking slightly. "Maybe I am." But he was more like the Big Bad Wolf... "Where do I go to get this extension?" He gestured to the door to get off the roof. "It's cold up here, let's go inside."

"R-right." She perked up a little at the thought of leaving the roof. "Um...my apartment manager probably isn't awake. I can get her information for you...or should I hand it to your butler?" She couldn't help the joke, not missing the fact that he hadn't told her his name. "I'm Eunji, by the way. Go Eunji."

"My but-? Oh...batman. I get it." He shook his head, trying hard not to smile at her joke, still the corners of his lips turned up just barely. He looked back at her again. "What's the apartment? I can do the rest."

Telling him the name of the complex--only a few miles away from the building she had chosen as her surveillance point--she felt a small stab of pride at the twitch of his lips. It didn't seem like he smiled much. "I take it I'm not supposed to know your secret identity, am I?" She asked next, brushing her hair out of her face.

NOdding, he looked at her, hearing the last, the smirk grew a little wider. He crossed his arms over his chest, looking at her for a long moment before nodding again. "...Seo Daeyoung." That wasn't the secret, his mind hissed.

"This is the weirdest way I've ever met anyone, but it's nice to meet you, Daeyoung-si." She decided with a bright smile. At least she could say the night wasn't a total bust. It was definitely a story she wouldn't soon forget.

He watched her for a long moment, wondering if she realized how much danger she could be in. HE knew this neighborhood, he knew these people. They'd tear her apart in a second..he couldn't send her off on her own. After a long moment, he cleared his throat. "...Do you...want a drink?"

"A drink?" She repeated, surprised that he was making the offer at all. A few minutes ago, he couldn't get away from her fast enough. But he had offered to help her...what harm could a drink be? "Sure, that sounds great." She decided, slipping her hands into the pockets of her jacket.

"Give me a moment, I need to tell my commanding of--" he cut off, remembering that in the real world there weren't commanding officers, he shook his head. "I need to tell my boss I'll be late." Pulling his phone from his pocket, he typed in Sijin's number, quickly typing out a short text to "Big Boss" and sending it, simply saying he needed some air and he'd be back later, and not to wait up.

"Your commanding what?" His height and the angle he was standing before her kept her from seeing anything on his phone, leaving her to watch him with a raised eyebrow. This man was getting stranger by the moment, she mused.

He turned to look at her, watching for a long moment before sighing softly. "My commanding officer."

"Commanding officer." She echoed, a smile pulling at her lips as realization dawned in her eyes. "...You're a soldier. That's why you can't give me the card back, you can't be on film, can you?"

"Soldiers can be on film. I can't be."he watched her closely, wondering if she really had any clue what he was...

"You're not a soldier...but you have a commanding officer?" She asked, confusion clesr in her voice. "And you can't be on film."

"I never said I wasn't a soldier, I just said my being a soldier isn't why I can't be on film." He shook his head with a soft sigh, about to speak again before he cut off. "And...I never said I can't be on film." It was a bit more complicated than that.

"You did just now. Though you say that it's not because you're a soldier." The more he tried to explain without really explaining, the more confused she felt. "You're going to talk around every question I ask, aren't you? Neither confirming nor denying, but confusing the both of us for the trouble?"
