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.

"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.

"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.

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.
