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.

"Are you planning to write an article about it?" With a softchuckle, he waved Kibum back over long enough to take a second bottle of water and offer it to her, watching the boy scurry away again. "Here. Drink some water."Seeing the exchange between her and the handsome doctore, he felt his body tense once more and he cleared his throat. "You know that doctor is married? Has a baby on the way and everything.."

"I'm sure you guys have enough reporters and journalists trying to get information out of you without me being underfoot." She shook her head with a chuckle of her own, taking the water with a smile. The heat of Urk was much different from the milder weather she was used to in Korea. At the last, she nodded, taking a swig before adding, "He told me all about them this morning during my check-up. He must have a million and one selfies with her...they're really cute together." She didn't notice her companion's tension, going on. "I love hearing people's stories, how they got to be where they are."

"We really don't have any reporters here. Due to the nature of some of our missions..we can't have reporters on base." He smiled, glancing down. "Which is why none of them know you are one." She would have been sent straight back to Korea if they knew... Glad she took the water and even gladder to see her drink it, he moved to take a seat on one of the benches, feeling tense muscles start to relax. "You..he showed you his wife? " That made his shoulders relax even further. But he wasn't jealous. He definitely wasn't jealous. "I haven't seen the pictures, I just hear him talk about her a lot."

"I'm technically unemployed." She reminded him, watching him as he took a seat near her with a smile. Taking another drink, she hummed softly in response. "They're perfect for each other, with how he talks about her. It's hard to believe he's older than me...I haven't been that optimistic in a long time." She added with a soft laugh.

At the mention of being optimistic, he chuckled softly, noddig. "I know the feeling." Seeing her lean against the building, he shifted a little, offering the seat next to him to her in silence. "She's pretty, right? He seems the type to have a cute one. I mean...adorable cute, not..." His cheeks flushed lightly and he gave a weak laugh. "I just mean he's a good looking man, right?"

"They're both adorable." She laughed softly at his embarrassment, shifting slowly to her feet to spare her stomach, sitting on the bench next to him with a soft thanks. Then, with a soft laugh, she added, "I'm surprised you know about being pessimistic...you always struck me as a ray of sunshine."

Hearing the last, he frowned, glancing at her with a raised brow. "...are you teasing me?"

"...A little." She couldn't hold back a grin, nudging him lightly. "You're able to smile and laugh a little but it always looks like you have to remember how every time...like there's a part of yourself you're holding back. ... I'm not making any sense, am I?" She added, giving a self-conscious chuckle. "If I'm being ridiculous, just tell me. I spend too much time trying to read people."

AS she mentioned holding back, that he had to remind himself how to smile, he felt his frown deepen. He looked at her for a long moment before nodding. "...You're making sense. Because it's true." AFter the breakup he'd been suffering for months...he really didn't have a reason to smile. He hadn't laughed...until he met this strange girl. "You're not being ridiculous.."

Seeing his expression darken, she sat up a little, wincing at the strain the sudden movement made on her wounds. "I...shit, I didn't mean to bring up anything bad. Don't worry about it, ahjussi, we can change the subject if I'm digging too deep."

His brow furrowed as he looked up at her. "You're not digging at all.you're not asking me anything. You made am observation. I told you it was true..that's it." He shrugged smoothly before looking up st her again. "Don't be so concerned that you've brought anything up. It's always there."

"That doesn't mean it's my business enough to make you think about it. We've had two conversations and here I am trying to analyze you." She shook her head with a nervous chuckle, taking another drink.

"You can analyze me all you like. You may not get answers...but you can analyze all you like." HE smirked slightly, looking up at her for a moment before finishign his bottle of water in anoterh drink.

"I get the feeling that you hear that you're hard to read pretty often." Drinking water shouldn't be attractive, she told herself firmly. It was a simple function that everyone on the planet did on a regular basis. There was no logical reason that he should make that look attractive. Relaxing a little at the sight of his smirk, she absently traced her fingers against the bandages through her shirt, still getting accustomed to their presence.

"HOnestly, most people know better than to try." He chuckled softly before looking down at the ground between his feet. He could see her shift out of the corner of hsis eye, see the way she messed witht he bandages. "...are you in pain?"

Realizing what she was doing, she let her hand fall into her lap, shaking her head. "Not much, just a little ache. I'm just not used to being patched up like this."

"Do you need anything? Food? Medicine? I can get your doctor." He was showing his concern, he knew...but he couldn't help it. sTraightening, he shifted to climb to his feet. "Where did ChiHoon go?"

Surprised by the sudden show of worry, she reached out to catch his arm without thinking, noting for a moment that they hadn't come into contact like this without a crisis involved since she had jumped onto his back. "Daeyoung-si, I'm fine, I promise." She assured him quickly, realizing that she hadn't called him by name before and correcting herself with an apology. "It's going to ache until I heal completely. I haven't been hurt like this before, but I'm fine."

Feeling her hand o his arm, he froze. Her fingers were cool against his heated skin...they felt way too nice.... He forced himself to push back those thoughts, remembering the last time he'd appreciated a woman's touch. He wasn't good enough for MyeongJu...and he wasnt good enough for this girl. Not that he wanted her. He didn't even know her. But hearing her call him by name, his heart jumped. He pushed that away, too. He looked back at her. "You don' thave to apologize. I think we've been through enough together...even in the short time we've known each other, that you can call me by name." He turned his gaze back to her, worry still obvious on his face. "Are you sure you're alright? You don't need anything? I can get you something."

"Do you want me to call you by name?" She asked, knowing that being qualified to and being given permission could be two different things. She hadn't heard anyone at the base refer to him as anything but "sir" or "Sergeant". At the last, forgetting that she was still holding his arm, she offered him a bright smile. "I'm fine." She repeated. "Taking it easy and drinking water are two things I was told to do as much as possible. But if I stayed in the medicube much longer I might have gone crazy. You're helping by being here, believe me."
