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.

Waving lazily, he pulled away from her house, drving just under the speed limit to avoid getting home too soon. He was sure he'd have an earfull when he got there.

A quiet night and a lot of applications passed, leaving Mirae mostly sleepless as she prepared for her first official day of servitude to the insane stranger that had bargained for her. The few hours she was able to sleep she dreamt of that snowy place between the mountains and the ocean, and the dark figure that stood silently by her side, waiting for the dark thoughts to be chased from their minds. Feeling more tired than rested, she made her way to the school, trying to keep her head down and stay out of anyone's way.

The start of the school day was pretty boring. He hadn't had time to find his new toy and class was piling work on due to his skipping the day before. He showed up to school with a small bandaid on his cheek from where his father had hit him for skipping classes. In a much fouler mood than the day before, he made his way into the hallway, wondering how bad he'd have it at home if he skipped two days in a row.

She had tried to keep from drawing any unnecessary attention to herself, moving out of the way of a group of girls that took up nearly the whole hallway. The movement brought her face-first into what she initially thought was a wall, stumbling back and apologizing with a bow before she looked up to see the face of the man she had been hoping to avoid. He was wearing a bandage, she saw, wondering what had happened. "I, uh...h-hello."

He tilted his head as she ran into him, smirking slightly. "...You should really watch where you're going." God, he was glad to see her. How was it possible that looking at this girl made all of the terrible thoughts in his mind flee... What was this..?

"Sorry." She bowed again, sure that he would make good on his promise to make her life anything but easy. "It's...really crowded here."

Tiliting his head again, he raised a brow. "...you weren't so...submissive before. What's gotten into you? Rough night?" He smirked, taking her by the arm and leading her down a less crowded hallway

"I'm trying not to bring any attention to myself." She shook her head with a frown, wondering just why he had such a habit of grabbing her arm. "The less people know about me the better; I've heard the stories of how scholarship kids are treated here."

"So you want to pretend you have money, then?" He raised a brow, watching her as they stepped into the hallway, ignoring th epeering eyes as he walked next to her. "You don't have to worry about getting treated badly by anyone but me. I tol dyou, you belong to me, I own this school. Everyone here won't do anything to get on my bad side...which means they'll leave you alone. "He looked down at her, raising a brow. "Are you upset that I'm dragging you wherever I want you to go?" She didn't seem to like being grabbed.

"I don't want to do anything but keep my head down and pay you back." Though just walking by him was enough to earn attention, it seemed. At the last, she raised an eyebrow. "Can't you trust me to walk whenever you want me to go somewhere with you?" She asked in return, looking up to him once again.

He raised a brow. "Is that your way of requesting I stop grabbing you and pulling you along?" With a small smirk, he watched her. "Is there a problem with me dragging you? Do you not want me to be...so close? Is that the issue?"

"I can walk on my own." She insisted with a frown. Oddly, she didn't have as much of a problem with him being so near to her, though she couldn't figure out why. Then, without thinking, she added, "If you want to hold a girl's hand, you should find a better method."

He had been in the process of walking before he heard the last. Hold a girl's hand? He'd never done that in his life. He'd never wanted to. With a small frown, he watched her before clearing his throat. "Excuse me? You think I'm doing this because I want to hold your hand?"

"What, are you so thrown off by a joke?" She raised an eyebrow, a small smirk on her lips. Maybe she could find a few small pleasures in her current situation after all. He seemed unnerved by her comment.

With a deeper frown, he watched her. "If I wanted to hold your hand, I'd hold it. You're not my type. I prefer my women to be ...well...women." He shook his head, smirking. "Counting your chickens before they hatch, it seems."

"Don't worry about it, Youngdo--I prefer my men not to be assholes." She hadn't realized that she had addressed him so informally, shaking her head with a chuckle. "Believe me, you're anything but my type."

Cocking hs head to the side at her words, he tried to ignore the flash of offense he felt. With a small smile, he reached out, taking her hand in his own, holding it tight enough that she couldn't pull away. "Then why don't I make sure that every guy here...knows that, your type or not, you're not up for grabs."

"What?" She tugged at his grip, trying to free herself as her confusion rose. "What do you mean by that? Let me go." She could feel the stare of the odd passerby, but she couldn't tear her eyes from his. Had she struck a nerve?

"If I make everyone think I've claimed you, not as a toy, but as my girlfriend, you won't have any potential guys coming after you. They'll be too terrified. Even if we were to 'break up'." He chuckled, still holding her hand firmly in his own. "I was just going to play with you as my new toy but...I think I like this idea better."

"I'm not looking to date anyone!" She snapped, trying to tug her hand away from his once again. "So what, you want to make the whole school think you're dating me because you're insulted that I'm not attracted to you?"
