The Mirror - Garden
NoWealthNoRuin HK's Territory
A grand courtyard within a hotel on the inside of the border between the territories. It's been taken and retaken so many times that not even the family heads know who originally laid claim to it.

She had started to walk away before he could answer. But when he asked her to talk, to listen, she froze. Her eyes moved to his and she stared in shock for a moment before clearing her throat. "You...want to talk to me..?" What about what she was? It didn't bother him? He wasn't brushing her off like he usually did. Something must have happened...something big.

Realizing that she might belittle him for wanting to unload what was on his mind, he moved to pull a pan from the cabinet. "If you don't mind. If it's a bother, we can talk about whatever you want." If she wanted to talk at all, his mind finished.

She still watched, more curious, more surprised than anything... "you want to talk to me at all? Even..even if I don't want to talk about how rough your day was?"

"Is that such a strange thing?" He asked, moving to start the rice, rolling his sleeves up as his hair fell from its usual swept-back state to hang in his eyes.

"Why would you want to talk to me? I'm-" she cut off, eyes darkening as she lowered her gaze. She was what? An animal? Worthless? Less than human..?

"You're what?" He asked, raising an eyebrow as he looked over to her. "You're easy to talk to? You're not afraid to tell me what's on your mind?"

She looed up at him, listening to his words, trying to ignore the way her cheeks flushed softly. She bit her lip. "...I"m...an animal." She hadn't told him up to this point that the fact that she wasn't human bothered her this much...

"No you're not, you're a werewolf." He corrected, realizing with a bump that perhaps part of her animosity wasn't his doing after all. "And you're just as much of a person as I am. Has this been bothering you this whole time?"

Avoiding his gaze, she turned her head to look at the ground. She bit her lip, taking a deep breath. Why did it bother her so much that he knew? Why did it bother her that he could see so easily into her.. She shook her head. "It..doesn't matter. Forget it." She shook her head again, fingers pulling her shirt a little lower again, biting her lip. She wasn't human. She was a monster. Why didn't he see that?

"Soon Deok." He said softly, setting his work aside as he looked to her, a concerned frown on his face. "I know it has to be tough. I've seen one of my brothers fight with himself and everyone around him because of what he is...but I don't see any difference between us. You're no less than anyone else I've ever met...in fact, you're better than most of them."

She looked up at him, shocked by his words, by his seeming desire to cheer her up, to convince herself that she's not a monster. Why did he care so much? Why did he care at all? She dropped her gaze again, shaking her head, hair falling to hide her face, still damp from her shower. "What are you talking about? You can't honestly believe that. Even if...if I wasn't a monster, I'm still a cop. You have to look down on me for that." He had to look down on her for all of it. She was a disgrace.

"No, I don't have to do that." He shook his head with a frown. "And I don't. You're not a monster, and just because you're working for a side that isn't mine doesn't make you anything less, either. We believe different things when it comes to the city and how it should be run. People will. But there are a lot of things about you that I like."

She looked upat him, eyes widening slightly. There were things he liked? Had he really just admitted that? He'd tried to be so cold, so cruel...but lately he'd started talking more and more to her. He'd seemed more like a friend than a captor lately...and now he was trying to cheer her up, trying to...what? Help her? She bit he rlip for a mometn before taking a deep breath. "Then tell me...thing syou like."

"Your determination, your sense of humor, even if you're mostly pointing it against me," He pointed out with a small smirk. "You're very strong, very smart, and very pretty. And that's just the tip of the iceburg."

She looked up at him, cheeks flushing lightly. How could he say such kind things? How could he tell her she was pretty knowing what she was... After a moment, she locked dry lips. "Aren't I supposed to be the enemy?"

"Sometimes I'm not sure. There's not as much black and white in the city as you might think...a lot of times even enemies can stop fighting and have a drink." As he spoke, he set to work once again, cutting a measure of beef into slices with skilled hands.

She bit her lip at his words, watching him work before leaning on the counter, accidentally moving the shirt a little higher on her thighs. "You...Are you saying you want to have a drink with me?"

"If you want, I won't be opposed." He shot her a smile, continuing his work. "It might do the both of us some good."

Seeing his smile, she bit her lip, watching him work for a moment. Finally, she cleared her throat. "...are you going to let me go sometime soon? I've been here a while..." She was starting to feel suffocated...trapped.."
