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.

As he felt her arm, his body relaxed, his shoulders sank as if the weight was finally lifted. He leaned his head on her shoulder, sighing softly before he heard the last. With a small smile, he shrugged smoothly. "I think you're someone that puts me in a good mood when I'm usually in a foul one. I think I enjoy our conversations and I think I look forward to seeing you every morning and I hate leaving you alone in the medi-cube every night."

As he spoke, she felt her face heat, a smile pulling at her lips as she felt him shift. "And here I thought that...I was just being a burden to you." She half-joked with a soft chuckle. Leaning her head against his in return, she told herself firmly that her heartbeat was racing from the walk, not their conversation. "I'm glad to help. Any way I can. I like our conversations...and I look forward to seeing you every day, too."

"You're not a burden. You're probably the only person here that isn't one aside from Sijin." He laughed softly, the sound barely audible before feeling his body relax as she returned his contact. With a small smile, he moved his fingers over his leg, straightening his pants to give himself something to do. "You look forward to seeing me? I thought I was too quiet.

"That's a big compliment." She chuckled softly, fingers resting against his side as she watched the sun rise further over the water. "And you might be a little quiet, but I don't mind. You're still great conversation when you talk. And even when you don't, it's comfortable."

As he felt her touch, her fingers on his side, he gave a soft sigh. "You think sitting with me in silence is comfortable?"

"I think so." She nodded, feeling the breeze ruffle her hair. "Spending time with a friend, even if we're not talking, is pretty nice, don't you think?" Absently, she hoped that he wouldn't be getting into any trouble if the woman that had been bothering him happened to come across the scene. To a jealous mind, this would look far less like friends enjoying a morning and much more like they were romantically involved.

He sighed softly at her words. His fingers brushed over his pants again and he looked up at the man. "You're still so sure you think of me as a friend? I mean, I'm not the friendliest person..." His heart wasn't jumping, it wasn't racing at her touch...

"Of course I'm sure." She chuckled softly. "You've been perfectly friendly to me. And honestly I think you're pretty great."

He lifted his head from her shoulder, turning his gaze to hers for a moment before offering her a soft smile. He couldn't remember the last time he'd really smiled, but he felt lighter than he had felt in years. "You think I"m pretty great?"

Turning to meet his gaze, she felt her heart skip a beat at the sight of that smile. For a moment, she wondered how on earth this man ever thought anything bad about himself...that smile was a gift to the world. "You are pretty great." She nodded with a smile of her own. "You're one of the few people in the world that's not afraid to tell the truth, no matter how harsh it might be. But under all of that cynicism, you've got a big heart. And you're able to put up with me." She added with a soft laugh.

"If I am pretty great..." he raised a brow, turning his gaze back out to the water. "Am I better than the soldiers you keep ogling?" He wasn't jealous, he insisted once again. He was just...concerned. "you think I have a big heart?" Flushing softly, he looked up at the water, heart jumping at the words. "It's really...not putting up with..."

"If I didn't know any better, I'd say that you're jealous." She teased, recalling the time she had found him digging outside, shirtless, sweaty... Flushing as well, she chuckled softly. "You do have a big heart. It's obvious to anyone that really talks to you." At the last, she raised an eyebrow. "I'm not bothering you like this?"

Hajin cursed softly as she sat beneath a fire escape in the labyrinth of alleyways, knees pulled to her chest to seem as small as possible. A darkening bruise on her cheek was starting to sting, as well as a few on her ribs and stomach. Thankfully her pursuer wouldn't be able to find her here. Her phone was silenced, ringing nearly constantly as she cursed her awful luck. All she had to do was wait until her boyfriend was sober, she told herself firmly. Or at least until he drank himself into going to sleep. Then his anger would dissipate, as it always did. Hopefully he was so far gone that he wouldn't remember that she left the house at all... Drawing further into herself, she took a deep breath to steady her nerves, wiping her face of the tears she had shed before she left the apartment.

Jungwoo had been working. Chsing a killer, hunting another rapist. He had his plate full and he'd been in the middle of a stake-out when he saw it. A man, stumbling into an alley, insulting whoever he was pursuing. He could see the rage, the murder in the man's eyes. With a soft curse, he climbed out of his car, leaving his partner to stake-out while he followed the figure into the alley. Seeing the man go one way, he glanced down, noticing a smaller footprint leading the opposite way. When he was sure the man was gone, he followed the foot-print, voice soft. "Hello...? Is there..is there anyone out here?

She had heard the cursing, drawing further into herself and holding her breath in an attempt to stay hidden. Damn it, she had hoped it would be too cold for him to bother. Shivering, she listened to the voice of her pursuer grow more faint before the new voice made her jump. It didn't sound like any of Chan's friends... "Is he gone?" She ventured, knowing that he wouldn't call anyone in to help. It was easier to go home and wait for her to return, as she always did.

Nodding, then realizing she couldn't see, he cleared his throat. "He is. You're safe...You can come out now." What was the story..? Who was she...?

For a moment she considered staying in her hiding spot, but without shoes or a jacket, she knew she couldn't do this for much longer without getting sick or worse... Slowly she uncurled herself, moving from underneath the fire escape and into the open. Trying to stand as calmly as she could, she met the stranger's eyes, sizing him up. He didn't seem malicious...yet. "Who are you?" She asked after a moment, rubbing one bare foot against her other leg in an attempt to get the blood flowing.

"I'm a police officer." HE showed her his badge from her spot under the fireescape. As he aw her emerge, he felt rage flash through him at whatever creature had done this to her. For a moment, for only a moment, he saw Lee Sooyeon in her.. "You must be freezing." Taking a slow step forward, he held his hands up to hsow her he wouldn't hurt her. "Will you let me help you?"

Distrust flashed across her face as he moved closer, debating on whether or not she should find another place to wait out Chan's anger. But a police officer shouldn't start any trouble, she thought...right? "I...couldn't stop to get a jacket." She offered weakly, hair falling into her face. "Help me how?" She added at the last. If he went after Chan, it wouldn't end well for her...

"I...just want to give you my jacket. And..and some shoes." He slowly moved to slip his own jacket off and he held it out to her, still moving slowly forward. "My name is Han Jungwoo." He tossed the jacket to her, not wanting to get too close. "Please, put it on."
