((He's just enough of a shit to do it. XDD))

"I didn't realize that trying to correct a wrong opinion." He snapped, not wanting to cause a scene in front of the other guests. He was shaking, livid, sure that this was too much of a reaction to a petty worker's opinion. But something about this simply rubbed him the wrong way. And if she spoke this badly to him, who knew what sort of trouble she got into with other groups. This was a popular hotel...if she kept this up, she'd surely lose her job. Debating for a moment, he brushed his hair out of his face as he made his way to the desk, making sure the woman wouldn't be there before placing a complaint about her behavior. If she wanted to be angry, she might need a little push to mind her words.

It didn't take long for the news to reach her. She was just clocked out for the day when she was called to speak with the management. She was cursed at, insulted, yelled at for causing a problem with one of their important guests and she was instructed that if she didn't apologize and convince him to leave a glowing report about her and the hotel alltogether, that she'd be fired. She was told she had until noon the next day. Knowing she'd likely need a drink or two before hand, she changed out of her work clothes and into something al ittle more form-fitting, entering the hotel's bar and sitting at the counter, ordering a strong drink and smiling weakly at the bartender she'd grown to know fvery well over the last few months.

The other members had returned from their night out and had gone to bed, but Jungkook's mind wouldn't let him get anywhere near sleep. The stranger's words still bothered him, huffing softly as he tried to let his anger go. It was nothing. She didn't know him. And soon he would be out of her life forever. Why did this bother him so much? In need of a drink, he made his way downstairs to the bar, ordering a double of whatever the bartender thought was best. He'd need it.

As she downed her second bottle, she heard the bartender take an order, serve the new guest and then return to her attention. With a weak smile, knowing the younger man had a small crush on her, she thanked him for the help. He asked if she was alright and she looked down at her glass, swirling it around for a moment. "..I found someone...that reminds me of him. It's...been a bad night."

He didn't realize that the very object of his ire was sitting a few seats away, nearly about to make a snide remark before he heard the last. Maybe her vendetta wasn't against him after all, he mused. An old boyfriend, perhaps? Thanking the bartender softly as a glass was filled before him, he took a deep drink, letting the familiar burn soothe his frayed nerves.

With a weak laugh, she nodded as the bartender made a joke about spoiled rich boys before she downed her third glass. She was alerady more than on her way to being drunk..she swayed in her seat. "And now I have to apologize to the asshole if I want to keep my job. I can't afford to leave the hotel, I'm already two months late on rent." She sighed, shifting the glass gently. "But I can't...stand the idea of apologizing to him."

"Could be worse," Jungkook offered, watching her drink herself further and further from sobriety as he downed the last of his drink and ordered another. "You could have insulted someone who wouldn't stop until you were fired."

"Aish, even if I had, it would have been deserved. People like him--" she cut off as her gaze moved to the man at her side and she tensed, the glass slipping from her fingers to shatter on the ground. With a curse, she moved from her seat, swaying a little for a moment before she knelt down to start picking up the glass. "...are you going to bother me on my time off, too, Mr. Jeon?'

"No, I just wanted a drink." He slipped from his stool to help her gather the glass without thinking. She seemed a little far gone, he knew, and an accident due to her slip would probably be blamed on him as well.

As he moved to help, she gave a soft curse, informing him that she didn't need, nor did she want his help before her words cut off as she noticed the drops of red on the previously clear pieces. She hadn't even felt the cut, nor the shard of glass embedded in her hand. She was bleeding... And stitches, she was sure, would be a necessity.

"Shit." His eyes went wide, asking for a towel from the bartender, taking it and pressing it to her wound with an absent thanks. "That's pretty bad, are you okay?" He asked. The sight of blood made his stomach turn, hoping the wound wasn't as bad as it looked.

With a wince, she pulled her hand from his grip. "Wjat the hell are you doing?" Looking down at the wound, she used her good hand to start picking glass out where the towel had pushed it further in. He seemed pale, almost concerned. "Does blood make you queasy?" Still pulling pieces from her hand, she realized just how deep it was. Yeah... She'd need stitches. A few of them. She could see her bone. With a soft curse, shw stood, swaying as if she'd fall onto yhe glass anyway. She stumbled a bit.

"Shit, I'm sorry. I was just trying to help." His voice was smaller, frown deepening as he found he didn't know what to do with his hands. As she stood, he did as well, moving his hands to her arms to steady her as she swayed. "Okay, you need a doctor. We should get you to the hospital, right?"

As the boy steadied her, she looked up at him in surprise. He seemed concerned, afraid...like he really wanted to help her. After their relationship...why would he want that? Blinking, brow furrowing as her blood dripped onto the ground, she nodded slowly. "Yeah...I should get to the hospital." With a small, wavering bow toward the bartender, she turned, walking crookedly toward the door.

"You'll need help, right? I'll take you there." He insisted, jogging ahead of her a little bit to flag down a taxi. She was still intoxicated, he knew, and he half-recalled a fact he'd read somewhere that people with higher alcohol content tended to bleed more profusely. He wasn't sure if it was true, but the thought was enough to worry him even more. "Here, this might help stop the bleeding now?" He passed her the towel he still held clutched in his hand, thanking the driver that stopped for him and opening the door for her.

"I can get there on my--" cutting off as nausea rushed over her, she moved her hand to her head. Everythign was spinning. "O-own..." She was speaking, but he'd already gone ahead of her. As her eyes moved to him, settling on him, she felt her brow furrow. As she felt the towel in her hands, she looked down at it, brow still furrowed. When he opened the door, she looked up at him once more. "...you're going to put me in the car and leave..right?"

"Are you kidding? Of course not. I'm not about to make you pay for this taxi yourself." He shook his head, gesturing for her to get into the car. He still had no clue what to do, but he knew that this was something he might be able to help with.

She tried to hide her relief at not having to go alone, but being heavily intoxicated made that difficult. Instead, she climbed into the car, sitting with her hands in her lap, holding the towel, though forgetting to press it to her wound.

Moving to the other side and asking the driver to head to the hospital, he frowned as he saw her sitting and holding the towel, reaching over and pressing it against her wound once again. "The bleeding's not going to stop unless you keep pressure on it." He knew that much, at least.

As she felt the man reach over and press the towel to her wound, she winced. Ah...there was the pain. Glancing over to him as he instructedt he driver and sat next to her, she bit her lip. Why was he helping her after the argument they'd had? After he clearly didn't like her any more than she liked him. "...I'm not going to sleep with you." The car jerked as the driver heard her words and peered back at them through his mirror out of curiosity. Right...she was a blunt drunk. Moreblunt than usual.
