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.

"Gotham needs me." He laughed softly, shaking his head and looking at her again. He took a drink as well, eyes watching her closely. "You seem...surprised...to be sitting here. Is it really so surprising that you're here?"

"I thought you were going to have me arrested, honestly. You were within your rights." She pointed out, smile never fading. "Between the invasion of privacy and jumping on your back, at least. But I can't remember the last time I had the time to go out and have a drink...or anyone to drink with. This is great."

"i have no reason to have you arrested when I can handle you myself." He raised a brow at her words, smiling slightly. AT the last, he nodded. "I can't remember the last time I had time to go out and have a drink with anyone but my captain. I'm..enjoying myself."

"Obviously, if you beat on soldiers for fun." She pointed out, shooting him a wink as she took another drink. "I'm glad you're having fun. Don't take this the wrong way, but you look like you're the kind of guy to forget to relax." Then, after a moment's thought,you she added, "The captain that you called and hung up on earlier?"

"I look like I forget to relax?" He raised a brow, smirking slightly before taking anotehr drink. "I try to remember to...but I don't really have much time to relax in my line of work. I'm rarely even on break. Missions...come pretty often." He was talking too much. Shit. Looking up at her, hearing the last, he nodded. "That would be the captain.

She couldn't hide the fascination in her eyes as he mentioned missions, brushing her bangs out of her eyes as she watched him. "You have to be good friends if he lets you get away with that." She chuckled softly. "So you decided to spend part of your rare break walking in a bad neighborhood and going for a drink with a photographer for the shittiest tabloid in Seoul?"

Glad she didn't ask about his work, he nodded. "Yeah. He's...my best friend. My brother. We've been through entirely too much together." More than anyone should have to go through... at the last, he nodded, taking another drink. "Seems that way...like I said, u was supposed to be meeting the captain..."

"I get the feeling that if I ask you about what you do, or what kind of things you've been through...I'm going to hear a lot of the word 'classified'." She raised an eyebrow at the explanation. Military, or perhaps some kind of spy, she concluded. Maybe he worked for Interpol or something, she mused, her need for knowledge making her imagination wander a little.

"You're so okay with being around a man who could potentially be dangerous?" He raised a brow. If she knew he was classified..wasn't she afraid? Nervous..? "Yes. It's classified."

"If you wanted to hurt me, you had the best chance on that rooftop where no one would find me for a few days at the least." She pointed out with an easy shrug. "Everyone has secrets, ahjussi. You just...have a lot. Whatever you do, is it for the greater good?" She had to ask, hoping the question was just vague enough for him to be able to give a straight answer.

He thought her words over, wondering just how much he could get away with saying. After a long moment, he nodded. "It is...for the good of South Korea, yes... it's too protect my people and my country."

"Then I'm not worried." She nodded, satisfied with the answer, even if it made her curiosity double. "If you're dangerous, it's not to me or any innocents."

"...you really believe that? You'll take me at my word? How do you know I'm not really one of those bosses you're trying to catch and I've just got a very good fake backstory...? You haven't even asked for proof that I am a soldier...."his brow burrowed, watching her closely.

"I've got a good eye for people. I can tell you're a good man. Harsh sometimes, pretty quiet as a rule, but good. But if you want, you can show me your credentials if it makes you feel better." She offered with a light shrug, taking another drink.

He shook his head, emptying his bottle in one final drink before waving his hand for a replacement. He looked at her, a small smile on his lips. "So you really believe that I am who I say I am?"

"You haven't told me much about who you are, ahjussi. But what you have said, yeah, I believe." She nodded, pushing the sleeves of her shirt up to her elbows. "You're not used to people taking you at your word, are you?"

He shook his head slowly. "I"m used to people either questioning every little thing...or taking orders without a word. It's...fascinating." He hummed softly, thanking the waitress for the new bottle before turning his attention back to the woman across from him.

"Fascinating that I trust you? Or fascinating that I'm still asking questions?" She raised an eyebrow, a little proud that she was making an impression either way as she ordered a new bottle for herself. Draining the last of the one before her, she accepted the new one with a soft thanks.

He smirked. "Both." Lifting the bottle to his lips, he froze as the phone at his side began to ring. With a soft sigh, he pulled the phone out again and answered with a frown. His face fell, his body tensed, he gave a soft affirmative before hanging up and looking at the girl across from him. "..I have to go."

Feeling a small stab of disappointment make its way through her fascination at the explanation, she nodded with a smile. "Duty awaits, right? Gotham needs its hero?" She likely would never see him again, she knew, the thought bothering her more than she wanted to admit. This was the most fun evening she had in longer than she could remember.
