The Rooftops
NoWealthNoRuin HK's Territory
A network of rooftops, fire escapes, and trellises that few brave souls use to travel across the neighborhood.

"Chaerin." He repeated with a nod. "Well, Chaerin, I promise that you're going to be all right, okay?" Then, with a weak chuckle, he added, "This is a shitty way to spend an evening, isn't it? What were you doing before that creep showed up?"

She shook her head. "Going...going home?" She couldn't really remember much. Her ears were ringing..."I think..I think I was going home."was it just the head injury that made her act like this? Maybe it was the shock...the fear...who was this man?

"And where's home? I can take you there after the doctors make sure you're all right." He offered without thinking before his steps faltered, cursing and shaking his head. "Or...call you a taxi. That's what normal people do."

"I barely remember my name and you're asking where I live?" She gave a weak laugh, feeling her blood sink into hus shirt. "You're getting...getting dirty."

"Thinking is keeping you conscious." He pointed out with a shake of his head. "A little blood won't hurt me. I'm wearing black." Shooting her a bright smile, he ducked down another alley to avoid the main streets.

Seeing his smile,s he had to blink several times, wondering if it was meant to be so bright, if he realized how bright it was. As he brought her downthe alley, she tensed. "Are you sure...you're not just bringing me somewhere no one can find me?"

"Who do you think I am?" He asked, a little offended that she would assume that of him. Then, realizing just how things looked from her angle, he added, "Oh...right, this looks pretty bad, huh? I'm taking the fastest route I know, avoiding all of the traffic and crosswalks. We'll get there twenty minutes faster, I promise."

"I don't know who you are, that's the problem." She gave a weak laugh, looking up at him again. Who was he? What was he...? "you seem to..know the city very well. I mean, I barely knew where I was when I was jumped back there and you just happened by?" Was he working with the man that had attacked her...?

"I was on the roof. I like it up there, it's not very far from where I live." He shrugged lightly, careful not to jostle her too much with the movement. "You just...happened to be right there. Which doesn't make me sound much better, does it?"

"You were on the--" she cut off. "Are..are you spiderman, then? How did you get down so quickly? How--" She gave a soft groan as he rhead began to pound, takin ga shaky breath to try to force away the pain. "You sure..you aren't working with the guy?"

"The fire escape." he shrugged once again. At the last, he shook his head with a frown. "Of course I'm not. Scum like that deserves much worse than I gave him, I couldn't dream of stooping so low. I'm a hell of a lot of things, but a pervert or a criminal like that isn't one of them." He felt his blood start to boil at the thought, wishing the man hadn't run off so easily so hat he could have beaten him a little more soundly.

"So you're a pervert, just not like him? Or is it that you're a criminal, just not like him?" she gave a weak laugh, shaking her head. She groaned softly, shuddering after a moment before she gripped his shirt to try to ward off the pain. "So who..who are you?"

"I'm not a pervert at all." He shook his head with a huff, unable to say anything as to his criminal habits. He did a hell of a lot to make money, but hurting anyone like that was lower than he would ever stoop. "I'm...that's an interesting question. Right now I'm someone who was in the right place at the right time."

"YOu're really not doing a good job making me comfortable...with being with you, ahjussi." She laughed weakly before giving another sharp curse. "'someone at the right place at the right time'? That's comforting..." She bit her lip, wondering how much longer they had to go to the hospital. Her head felt like it ws splitting open with every passing second.

"Okay, so I'm not...really the greatest person. But I'm a good Samaritan, that has to count for something. We're almost there." He added, rounding one last corner and coming along the back of the hospital, making his way around to the emergency room entrance. He nearly assured her that he didn't hurt people, but for the right price he had and would. This was rather out of character for him.

She leaned her head against his shoulder, black spots beginning to dance in front of her vision. Nearly immediately as they entered the hospital, thr black took over completely and she went limp in his arms.

Worry and fear working through him in equal waves, he pushed to get her seen as soon as possible, never leaving her side as long as the doctors would let him stay near. Soon enough they had her in a bed and he was sitting by her side, leg shaking with nerves and pent-up energy as he waited for her to wake up. He should have left, he knew. Staying out in the open like this could be a problem, but he wanted to know that she would be all right.

After the doctors ram their tests and she'd rested, though she had no clue for how long, she felt her eyes flutter open. She squinted at the light, head pounding before he gaze moved to the man st her side. She didn't recognize him...who was he...?

Seeing her shift, he sat up a little taller in his chair. "Chaerin. How do you feel, are you all right?" It was only a minor concussion, he had been told, and she would be able to go home as soon as she awoke, but he couldn't hide his concern.

Her brow furrowed at his words. She had vague thoughts of a fight, blood, black cloth against her cheek, a soft voice that sounded startlingly like this man's. "..do you know me? I - I mean...do I know you?"
