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.

((Sure, gotcha covered. XD))

Hajin had been told by a nurse to stop pacing twice in the time that Jungwoo had been gone, but she couldn't help but keep moving. Her worry grew with every minute that passed, wishing that she had her phone or a book to distract her. She hoped that the officer hadn't met resistance, that he was able to slip into and out of the house without meeting Chan at all. But until she heard back, it was all she could do to keep herself distracted. The work of bandaging her ribs and putting a brace on her wrist took no time at all, giving her entirely too much time to think.

As Jungwoo found his way back to the hospital, her items in his arms, he was beaming. Stepping into her room, not thinking about the shiner on his eye or the split in his lip, he grinned widely at her. "I got what you asked for! I told you you could trust me!"

She had just attempted to sit down and relax when she heard him return, relaxing and offering him a smile before she saw the wounds on his face. Jumping to her feet, she ignored the pain in her ribs as she moved to inspect his face. "You're hurt! He shouldn't have been awake, I'm so sorry, are you all right?" As she spoke, she brought her fingers to brush gently over the purpling skin around his eye, feeling her stomach sink in regret.

He lifted a hand, waving her away with a wide grin. "Don't worry about it, don't worry. Really. I'm okay, I've had much worse in the academy, you don't have to worry at all." He laughed softy, eyes moving to hers. "REally...it was fun hitting him. You should see how he looks right now."

"You won?" Her eyes widened. Of course, she thought, this man had training Chan hadn't even dreamed of...but she had been brought low by him so many times, the thought of anyone besting him was something that never crossed her mind. "I'm so sorry." She repeated, hair in her eyes as she released him. "Thank you for all of this...I didn't mean to cause you trouble."

"Of course I won. You thought I wouldn't?" He held his hand over his heart in mock-offense and pain. "Im wounded. You have such little faith in me. I'm trained to handle people like him, you know."

"I...didn't think about that." She raised an eyebrow at the display. "I wasn't doubting you, just...worried. Some strange cop coming into his house getting my things after I ran off...he must have been furious."

"He was pretty mad. Now he's pretty sleepy." He flashed her a wink before looking around the room. "Have the doctors seen you yet? Do you have test results? ARe you alright?"

"That kick cracked a rib and I've got a fractured wrist. The rest, thankfully, is bruising." She shrugged lightly, lifting the arm with the brace to illustrate. They had offered to prescribe painkillers, but she had declined, not wanting him to pay any more than he had to for her sake.

Frowning at her pain, he moved closer to grip her good arm gently. "Come on. Back to bed."

"Back to--I'm fine, Officer Han, don't worry about me. I've been walking this whole time and I feel all right." She insisted, hoping the nurse hadn't mentioned anything about how she had been refusing to sit still the whole time he was gone.

"You need to rest." He shook his head, moving her back to the bed despite her words. "Please. Trust me and sit, atl east."

"Okay, I'll sit." She sighed, resigned as she took a seat on the bed once again. Already she felt that she had too much nervous energy, not knowing what to do with herself or where she would go. Looking up to him after a moment, seeing the shiner he bore, she couldn't hold back a soft, startled chuckle. "We...we match..."

Clearly more comfortable once she sat, he looked up at her. "You look like you feel better than when I met you." He glanced toward the clock over the door. At the last, he looked back at her, confusion on his face for a moment before laughing softly. "We match? You mean the bruises?:

"I...don't know how to feel, honestly. I keep thinking...that he'll come in any minute. Charm the doctors into letting me go with him. Charm me into believing that it was a mistake." She shook her head with a soft sigh, smile returning at the question. "Yeah...the same eye. He swings right-handed."

"he doesn't even know where you are. He thinks you're at my house." He grinned, flashing her a wink before he heard the last and frowned. "Yeah...but i bet it looks cuter on me, huh?"

"It suits you more." The question caught her by surprise, laughing despite herself. "I doubt this is the first black eye you've gotten." After a moment, she raised an eyebrow, his words hitting home. "You...told him that I was at your place? No wonder he hit you."

He grinned at the compliment, nodding at the assumption before hearing the last and giving a soft hum. "Well...i just told him you were safe and i wouldn't tell him where. He... Assumed you were with me so he hit me. That and he wanted you to get your stuff yourself. I told him that wasn't an option. He has no clue I'm a cop." He laughed softly, raising a brow.

She couldn't keep from laughing softly, shaking her head at the explanation. "And he came out swinging. He probably thinks we're together...I have no doubt that he's calling everyone he can to say that I was cheating and he kicked me out." She didn't have many friends to her name...once Chan was done with his rampage, that number would likely dwindle down to nothing. It was likely that no one would believe her side of the story.
