The Alley
NoWealthNoRuin
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.

"And he came out swinging." As he heard the last, frowning slightly, he gave a soft hum. "Then..if they believe that they weren't your friends in the first place, they were just his. So...maybe you should get some new friends. I could introduce you to mine. They're amazing. At least...Jung Myung is amazing. He's my wife."

"I don't make friends easily, officer Han, I haven't been around people that weren't under his influence in too long--" She broke off as she heard the last, raising an eyebrow. She didn't see him as the type... "Your...wife?"

"you don't make friends easily? I can't See that at all. Maybe you just need to figure out who you are without him first. Stop letting him define you. Then you could find your friend. I'll introduce you to Jung Myu--" cutting off as he realized what her said and how it could be taken, his cheeks flushed softly. "Um...that... Thats an inside joke. He's my partner and... And my best friend."

"I didn't think you were the type to get embarrassed, officer." She couldn't hold back a chuckle, covering her mouth to hide her smile out of habit. "So...he's crazy like you." She added without thinking.

"i just... Didn't realize how it would sound." His flush darkened for a moment Before he shook his head again. "You think I'm crazy...?"

Chuckling again, she nodded at the question. "You are crazy. You went to an apartment you've never been to for a total stranger, faced a man known to be violent and manipulative, got hurt, and still came back in a better mood than when you left. No one sane does that." Then as an afterthought, she added, "But...it was pretty cool."

He frowned at her words for a moment, clearly concerned that she was uncomfortable or judging him. But when he heard the last, he brightened, eyes moving to hers again. "So...im crazy... But I'm cool..?"

"Yeah. And...incredibly sweet for going out of your way like that for someone you don't know." She nodded, giving a small smile at the sight of his worry. Was he really so concerned over the opinion she had of him? It wasn't as if her opinion mattered.

"I'm just doing my job." He flashed her a wink, grinning as she seemed to really enjoy him being there, the things he'd done for her. "You think I'm sweet?"

"That's a given. Most cops I've met wouldn't have done half of what you did. There's too much paperwork, red tape, a process to go through. You look like the type that asks for forgiveness more often than permission."

"I..don't really do paperwork. And I definitely don't ask for permission often. There's hardly ever time for that kind of thing." HE laughed, looking back at her. "How are you feeling?"

"So you're reckless." She teased, shaking her head with a smile. At the last, she shrugged. "Better, I think. Still lost. I'm still not sure that I'm not asleep under that fire escape and I just dreamed all of this."

"I'm definitely reckless." He grinned watching her closely. Better. She said better. HE relaxed a little at her words. "It's not a dream. You're really safe. I swear it."

"It might be a long time before I really believe that." She gave a wry chuckle, looking down to her hands in her lap, hair falling into her face. "I'm just...not sure he'll take losing that easily."

"Oh, he wont. But don't worry...I'll make sure he has no choice..or he'll end up behidn bars...and I'll personally put him there." He grinned, flashing her a wink. "I have zero tolerance for people like him. I've seen it practically all my life...and it's...partially why I became a detective."

"You dealt with people like him before?" She asked, raising an eyebrow as she looked up at him through her hair. "Before you were a cop, I mean."

"I deal with people like him all the time." As she clarified, he tensed a little. AFter a long moment, he spoke, voice soft, hardly above a whsiper. "I've dealt with people much worse than him before I was a cop."

Frowning at his reaction, she found she much preferred his smile. Reaching out, she hesitated for a moment before laying a hand on his arm. "I'm...I'm sorry."

As he felt the hand on his arm, he couldn't hold back his surprise as he glanced up at her. For a moment he didn't smile, he didn't do anything. Then, pulling himself back into the present, he put on a smile, the look much less convincing than before. "Oh, don't be sorry. It was a long time ago."

"It...looks like it still hurts." She commented without thinking, frown deepening for a moment. "I know it's not my business, but I'm sorry either way."
