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

"Good for you." He frowned at the statement, still holding the cloth to her wound. "You might be surprised to know that I'm not trying to get into your pants. You're hurt. And kind of drunk. I just want to help."

"People might see you. There will be questions. You'll get swarmed at the hospital." She still watched him, rather than the towel on her wound. "If your fangirls show up, I'm going to kick somebody's ass..."

"I don't give a shit about fans right now, and I have a face mask in my pocket if you're that worried." He shook his head with a sigh. "It's two in the morning. I'm sure we'll be fine."

Looking up at him, clearly shocked that he was so determined to help her, she nodded slowly, finally accepting his help and moving her hand a little closer to him to make it easier to put pressure on the wound. After another moment, she cleared her throat. "...why are you taking me to the hospital..?"

"Because I have no idea how to help something like this." He admitted, relaxing a little as she moved her hand nearer to him. Good, at least now he was sure she wouldn't fight him. "I think I saw bone or something; I've never seen a wound that deep before."

"...but why you?" She continued to watch him, feeling a bit of the alcohol start to wear off. "...after the roof. I mean...you hate me, I hate you. Why do you care at all if I get help. I told you I could get to the hospital myself, I didn't need you to...to get me there, so why...are you helping me?"

"Because I was there. You're hurt, and someone had to help." He insisted, shaking his head. "Besides, I'm...the one that pissed you off in the first place. Even if I don't really understand why you hate me so much in the first place...I know that this is my fault."

"It was your fault that I got made. It was my fault for getting startled and dropping the glass. My cutting myself wasn't your fault at all." She still watched him, brow furrowing once more. "I told you...I just don't like idols. That's it. It's not you specifically."

"I still feel responsible." He insisted softly, frown deepening. After a long moment, he added with a sigh, "I know that there's a lot of us out there that are pretty horrible. I'm...probably not one of the better ones. But I try. Maybe that's a part of why I'm doing this. So just...know that not all of us are bad, okay?"

"Not all of you are bad?" Shes hook her head, looking toward the window. "YEt all of you think you're above the rules, that you don't have to follow anything." She bit her lip, tryign to ignore the pain she felt at his touch. "It may not be all horrible, but idols aren't...good people."

"I try to be." He insisted softly, frowning at the cloth steadily turning red between their hands. "Not everyone is perfect, but...trying, really trying...that should count."

She nodded at his words, humming softly. "I suppose it should, shouldn't it...?" After a moment, she glanced up at him. "You try to be a good person? Is that why you've got a new woman in your bed two, sometimes three times a day?"

"You drink to forget your problems. Some of us have other vices." He mumbled without thinking, shifting the towel to press another, cleaner part to her skin.

"But you have to know what it does tothem, that some of them really like you. Using them like that.." she trailed off, wincing and giving a near-whimper at the shift, she looked at their hands again. After a moment, she looked up at him once more. "Do you...really want to be a good person?"

"A lot of them I don't know how badly they're taking it until after it's done. And after that, I don't...don't know if I can help. Or I'd just be making it worse." He shook his head, frown deepening. At the last, he nodded, hair falling into his face as he wondered just how far it was to get to the hospital.

"A lot of them.." She nodded. "Then have you considered stopping it? I mean.you know that the majority of the women you're with really like you...you can't ignore that." As she looked up at him, she bit her lip. "...have you ever liked any of them back?"

"I don't know until after it's done. I meet a girl, sparks fly, I make it clear I'm not looking for any strings and they agree. I don't know how much clearer I can get." His frown deepened, meeting her eyes.

"You could learn to stop putting your dick in anything that moves-" she cut off, realizng once again that she was beling incredibly blunt. With a clearing of her throat, she looked up at him and flushed softly. "I...have no filter when I'm drunk." She hardly noticed the taxi jerking again as the driver heard that comment as well. With a darker flush, she looked down. "...so you don't ever find someone you're genuinely interested in...? That's...that's sad. Isn't it lonely?"

"Not at all. I get all the companionship I want and no stress when I have to go on tour or record or practice. A life like this just...doesn't work with a real relationship." After a long moment, he chewed on his lip, the thought coming up from the darker parts of his mind. "Well, I guess...it can be lonely sometimes..."

"All the companionship but none of the connection, none of the real emotion." She shook her head slightly, looking up at him again. She was about to speak again when the shaking of her head caused her world to spin. Before she realized what she was doing, her head sank against his shoulder and her eyes closed as she gave a soft groan in pain.

(Straight up drama moment...where she falls asleep on the lead. XD)
