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 sighed softly, shaking his head. "Never...nevermind, it doesn't matter.' As he looked back t her at the last, he gave a small smile, just barely a hint of a smile. "Probably."

"It does matter, you're just not going to tell me anything." She crossed her arms, unable to keep from smiling as she saw the flash of amusement on his face. "You were less confusing when you were Batman, ahjussi." She decided with a theatrical sigh. "But if you're as much fun to drink with as you are to talk to, this is going to be an interesting night." Much to her surprise, she wasn't being sarcastic. He was by far the most interesting person she'd come across that week.

The smile fell. "ARe you going to keep calling me Batman?" At the last, he tilted his head. "Are you saying...I'm very fun to talk to so drinking with me will be fun? Or will it be interesting because I'm not fun to takl to at all and you'll suffer for the evening?"

"I might." She couldn't hide her smile at the question, laughing softly. At the last, she shook her head. "I really mean it, I promise. I wouldn't have agreed if I thought anything else."

Raising a brow, he looked at the woman for a moment before shoking his head, giving a small smile again. "Come on. Let's go get something drink. This isn't a good neighborhood."

"Can I ask why you were in this neighborhood?" She asked next, nodding at the offer and pulling a key from her pocket to unlock the door that led to the stairwell. "Were you here to stop those boys or did you just stumble across them?"

"I stumbled across them. I was on my way to meet my boss, we were going to get dinner before going back to base." He shrugged, moving toward the stairway. "I was nearby, visiting an old friend and found those boys. And you were there to get pictures of their leaders? Isn't that dangerous? What if you were caught?" She had courage..she was strong..

"I...wasn't thinking of that." She admitted with a soft laugh, following after him. "That sounds pretty bad, doesn't it? I mean, I had a few escape routes and I know a little self-defense, but I was too focused on trying to make sure that this went off well and maybe helping a few people in the city sleep a little easier."

"So you pay no mind to your own safety, as long as you can help others?" He couldn't hold backa small smile. He knew someone like that..Yoo Sijin. "What if you'd gotten hurt our killed before you could expose them?"

"I'd hope I would be able to upload and send off the pictures before then." She tapped the strap of the backpack she wore, where her laptop was sitting at the ready. "Or maybe the police would be able to find me and hopefully put two and two together." Not that any family or friends would push to find her if she happened to vanish...

He hummed softly, leading her to the street, the soft clink of dog tags under his shirt filing the silence fora moment. "So. .you belive giving your own life for the rest of the city is a good choice? "

"It's not the best choice, is it?" She asked, giving a soft laugh as she put her hands in her pocket. "I mean...if I know I'm helping people, if someone's life is saved because of it...then it's worth it. That's why I want to be a journalist...to try to do as much good as I can. I want to live long enough to see this city be a safer place...instead of the fear and the drugs and the crime that make it up now."

Nodding witha small smile on his lips, he turned down the street, toward the Bara few blocks away. "A journalist.." After a moment, a thought struck him and he stopped walking to look down at the girl curiously. "You're an adult, right?"

"How young do I look?" She asked with a soft laugh, looking up to him with a raised eyebrow. "I'm twenty-four. Promise I'm old enough to drink." She added with a grin.

"Well...you're really short. I didn't want to be bringing a minor thr the bar." He smirked, looking down at her again before nodding. "Twenty four. Still very young...You want to bea journalist? "

"I'm short? Are you sure you're not just incredibly tall?" She asked, laughing again. At the last, she nodded. "It's been my dream since I was a kid. That's the only reason I took this job for a crappy tabloid, I thought that if I could start to do something good in a small place, I could find a doorway into real news."

"Have you considered detective work? Police work? Even military? You have the heart of a soldier.' He looked down at her, eyes flashing curiously.

"You really think so?" She asked, feeling her face heat slightly. "That's...a really big compliment. I never really thought about it before...I've always loved photography and I had a good camera, this was the first thing I could think of to put it to good use."

"I think so. From the way you talk." He lsmiled slightly. At the last, he nodded. "If it's photography you like, then journalism sounds perfect for you."

"I just need to get in the door." She shook her head with a soft sigh. "Every interview at the local newspapers and news stations ends with them telling me that I don't have enough experience or that they're looking for someone older, someone with a better portfolio. As a woman under thirty, it looks like I'm precisely the type of person no one wants on their team."
