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.

"I have no doubt in my mind you'll become whatever you want to become in life. You have the will and the strength." he nodded, cursing sfotly as his phone began to ring. Pulling it from his pocket, he answered with the typcal salute before sighing softly and rolling his eyes. He spoke to the man on the other end more like an annoying sibling than a superior officer, explaining tat tey could still et food when he got back, but he had something that needed to be taken are of. After a moment, he tensed. "No...it's not a woman."

She felt her face heat at the compliment, about to ask how he knew something like that after such a small amount of time when his phone began to ring. She covered her mouth to hide a laugh at the reaction, wondering just who his commanding officer was that he could speak to him like this.

With another growl of annoyance, he spoke, voice hardly above a whisper but still full of curses and threats before telling hte man he could eat alone or he could starve and hanging up. With a sigh, he tucked his phone back into his pocket, shaking his head. "...Right...drinks."

"You get kind of scary when you're mad, ahjussi." She couldn't keep from pointing out, lowering her hand with a chuckle as he hung up the phone. "Don't you get in trouble when you talk to your superiors like that?"

"We're not on mission, he's not my superior." He shook his head, grumbling for a moent before loking back at the woman. "I'm scary?"

"You get quiet and it looks like you've got a storm in your eyes. Younger recruits think you're intimidating, don't they?" She asked, eyes shining with amusement as her smile widened.

He tensed at her qustions, thinking back to all the times they called it hell week when he ran bootcamp. Witha small smile, he nodded. "They call me the drill sergeant from Hell." He looked down at her and cleared his throat. "I get a storm in my eyes? I never realized how scary I look. I'm not even angry I"m just...mildly annoyed."

"Drill sergeant? So you really train people?" She couldn't hide her fascination as she looked up to him. "If that's annoyed, I'd hate to see you when you were really angry." She added with a soft laugh.

"I train a lot of people." He nodded, stepping across the street to oepn the door to a bar for her, eyes moving to hers as he gave a small smile. "If you're lucky you'll never have to."

"I hope I don't." She laughed softly, thanking him as she moved into the warmer building. "And they call you the drill sergeant from hell. That can't earn you a lot of friends." Then, with a widening smile, she added, "Though, I guess as long as they're trained the right way it's for the best?"

"It...earns me a lot of enemies, actually." He nodded, leading her into the quiet bar, to a table in the corner and pulling his collar up to try to seem inconspicuous. AT the last, he nodded. "Honestly, I enjoy running htem until they drop."

Raising an eyebrow at the shift, she took a seat across from him, hanging her jacket on the back of the chair, revealing the thin t-shirt beneath. "Are you sure you're not a sadist, ahjussi? That sounds pretty harsh." She teased with a soft laugh.

"I never said I wasnt' a sadist." He hummed, nodding as he gestured to a waitress before sitting across from her and smiling. "I like being harsh. It weeds out who can handle the training and who cant much quicker. If I make a few enemies, that just means they'll work harder to prove me wrong."

"So you're cruel to them to make them better in the long run." She concluded, brushing her hair out of her face. "And how many of these better soldiers try to settle the score with you?"

At the question, he glanced around the bar before shrugging witha sly smile spreading over his lips. "Too many to count, miss."

"Do you win every fight?" She couldn't hide her fascination, finding his smile contagious. "You look...way too proud of that."

"Depends on what you mean by win." He raised a brow, watching her reaction. She had a stunning smile, he realized, humming softly. "I enjoy beating them into place, I'll be honest."

"Avoiding getting beaten in a twenty-to-one fight? Beating them into place?" She offered in response, shaking her head with another chuckle. "Drill sergeant by day, Batman by night. You're a strange man, ahjussi."

"You're never going to stop calling me Batman, are you?" He chuckled softly, holding his beer out to her in silent cheers.

"Never. You're the hero Gotham needs." She laughed softly, feeling a stab of pride at the sound of the chuckle. Tapping her glass against his, she took a drink, glad that the night had taken the turn that it had. No part of this was making any sense, but she was having more fun than she'd had in weeks.
