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.

((Gotcha covered. XD))

Eunji wasn't sure where she was. The last thing she remembered was following a lead to the den of Seoul's biggest drug ring, snapping pictures of their lab and the faces of their biggest mules before feeling a flash of pain across the back of her head. Now she was sitting in a dingy room surrounded by other frightened faces, all beaten and bound, waiting for their fate. One had whispered when she awoke that they were going to be sold to some foreign forces, used in whatever way the highest bidder saw fit. She had attempted to get up, to escape, and only received several blows and a gun to her face for her trouble. It was an effort to keep a calm face, though she was shaking like a leaf. Being sold in a foreign country for one stupid choice was the last thing she had expected when she took the job her informant passed along. This couldn't be her fate, she told herself firmly. She couldn't be living this.

Daeyoung had been tracking these people for months. He'd tried to stop them countless times on his own...but now that the entire alpha team was there and ready,this would go quickly. Infiltrating their base had been easy, taking out thr guards outside the main prison room had also been simple. As they rushed into the room, guns drawn, he heard the sound of a shot. After fighting and successfully knocking two of the guards unconscious in seconds, he moved to the group of younger women, speaking softly through his mask that they'd all be okay. He started to turn back toward the men still fighting before his gaze feel on eunji... he froze. His eyes widened and for a crazy moment he almost moved forward to help her..but there was more than just her there. What snapped him back into the moment was the sharp sound of a gunshot, thr bullet whizzing past his face, grazing his cheek dnd cutting his mask, though not enough to reveal his face. He gavea soft hiss, about to advance on his attacker before sijin took the mam down before he could move. When the fighting was over, he turned his attention back to hus captain, muttering that the people should be bright back to the base for medical evaluation....he refused to admit, even to himself, he wanted to be sure EunJi was alright...

As the team broke in and took out their attackers, she felt a mixture of anticipation and relief. Only relaxing as the last of the criminals was taken down, she slumped against the wall she sat near, feeling her pulse pounding in her ears. Those were Korean soldiers, she knew, recognizing the patterns they wore from her research after the night she had met Daeyoung. Twisting a little in a vain attempt to get the feeling back in her hands, she watched as a few of the soldiers started to get the other prisoners to their feet. She heard soft sobs from the woman next to her, trying to softly assure her that they would be all right. They were going to be safe now.

As the team and a few other soldiers came into the room, trying to help the women to their feet, a few carried those unable to walk and daeyoung moved to his friends side. His voice was low, muffled by the mask he wore, knowing she wouldn't recognize him. She couldn't. He knelt and spoke softly. "Can you stand, ahjumma? Can you walk?"

(Think maybe later at the base she sees the cut on his cheek and realizes it's him? XD)

"I...I don't know. I think so." She nodded, trying to get to her feet without her hands to help. As she moved, a place on her stomach where she had been hit to the point of the skin splitting flashed in pain, making her double over as she stood. Cursing softly, she closed her eyes, waiting for the initial pain to pass.

With a soft curse, he ran the knife through the ropes to free her hands. He started to reach out before freezing. He cleared his throat. "May I touch you?"

As soon as her hands were free they went to her stomach, thanking the man softly before the worst of the pain slowly subsided. "Y-yeah...I tried to run earlier and they caught me. Beat me pretty good..." Feeling the dampness of her shirt and thinking it was sweat for a moment, she moved to rub at her wrists to help her circulation before she saw blood on her hands. "...Shit." She said at last. That would explain the pain.

Giving another soft curse at the sight of her blood, he glanced around the room that was nearly empty. "I'm going to look at the wound." Lifting her shirt just high enough to determine it could wait to be treated, he moved his arm around her waist, pulling her to her feet. "Take your time, go slow. We've secured the entire area...there's no one to take you back, so just go slow. We have doctors standing by for all of you.."

Leaning heavily against the man, she nodded, gripping his jacket to make sure she wouldn't collapse. "The woman that was by me...the one that was crying, is she okay? She said that she might be pregnant...I want to make sure she's not hurt..."

He started to insist that she was fine before deciding he didn't want to lie to the woman. Taking a moment to think back to her, to recall the young woman's face and figure out who took her, he recalled one of his men scooping her into his arms. "She was on the first car back to the base. She'll be one of the first to see a doctor. If you'd like I can be sure you're nearby so you can check on her. Is she your friend?" He had to keep her talking, he couldn't handle a panic attack until they were back at the base. "You're korean, right?"

"Good. I'm glad..." She nodded with a weak smile. "I didn't know her...but I guess we're as good of friends as you can be when you meet in a place like this..." At the last, she nodded, biting back a soft pained groan as her stomach twinged once again. "Ah...y-yes, I'm from Seoul. I'm a journalist. I think whoever these guys are, they're working with people in Korean crime rings..."

He nodded, bringing her to his car. The rest had already left. Helping her into the seat, he climbed behind the wheel. "You're right. We've been tracking them for months."

"I hope you're able to take them out soon." She let out a pained sound as she relaxed against the seat, apologizing for the blood and dirt she must be getting on the fabric. Glancing over to the masked man at her side, she frowned slightly as she saw the hole in his mask and the dampness of the fabric around it. "You...you're bleeding, ahjussi..."

Shaking his head as she apologized, he pulled away from the building and back toward the base. Hearing her mention hus blood, he kept hus gaze out of sight, not wanting her to see his eyes, not wanting her to recognize him. It could be even more dangerous... "its a scratch. I'm fine. How do you feel?

Aug 22, 2017, 07:03pm

"Been better." She admitted with a weak smile. "I'm glad you guys were there...I don't...don't even know where they took me. One minute I'm on the roof of a drug lab sending pictures to the police, the next...I'm waking up in that room."

"You were on the roof of a--?' He cut off, forcing his annoyance at her stupidity back before shaking his head. "You're in a place called Urk. WE're taking you to the South Korean base nearby...Do you feel dizzy? Hungry? I need to know what to tell the doctors on the off chance you pass out before we gethere.

"Stupid, right? But I had to...better me than anyone else, right?" She gave a weak laugh, shaking her head. "I'm a little dizzy...but I don't know if that's from the beating or if they drugged me to get me out of the country...it's hard to tell. I don't remember how I got here at all..."

"Better y- Do you not realize we are after these people? You don't have to keep putting yourself in danger." He nodded. "WE'll have you get a full check up. The doctors we have are some of the best in Korea, they came here as a project, it's a good thing they arrived when they did. They haven't been here long." As he pulled into the base, he waved at a young soldier before pulling into a park and moving around the car to ehlp her into the medicube. "I can check on your friend if you'd like."

"Yeah...but if they hadn't have gotten me, they might have picked up someone else...someone with people to miss them." She gave a wry chuckle, eyes closing as she leaned her head back against the seat. "...I'd like that, thank you. I'll feel better knowing she's all right..."
