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

"Do...don't you remember?" He asked, frowning as he wondered just how hard she hit her head. "You were attacked in the streets, I helped you get here. We were talking a little on the way, but you lost consciousness as soon as we got here. I'm Baekhyun."

As he spoke, it all began rushing back to her. She almost responded before hearing the last. Looking up at him in surprise, she felt a small smile pull at her lips. "So...you do have a name..." After a moment, her brow furrowed again. "How long have we been here? You waited...?

"I thought I told you. Did I forget?" He asked with a nervous chuckle, rubbing the back of his neck. "Almost six hours. You have a mild concussion, but you'll be able to go home tonight if you want."

"You avoided giving me your name like you avoid the plague. You didn't forget." she gave aweak laugh, shaking her head. "I can barely sit up on my own and they want me to go home?" She sighed softly, shiftin gin the bed before the pain sent her falling back against her pillow again. "How hard did I hit my head..?"

"Pretty hard. You'll have a gash for a week or two." He shook his head with a weak chuckle. "They told me that they can monitor you overnight if you really feel you need the rest before trying to go home."

She bit her lip, nodding at his words, regretting the movement as her head protested. She took another shaky breath, fingers moving to the bandage and she gave a soft laugh. "I must look terrible." As she looked back up at the man, she offered a small smile. "I guess youweren't a pervert after all, were you?"

"You look pretty great for a girl that's been through a head wound." He pointed out with a soft laugh. At the last, he nodded, ducking his head. "Not even a little. Oh," He pulled a bag from where it had been sitting by his feet, setting it on the edge of the bed. Inside were a variety of snacks and a few sodas and canned coffees from the concession stand in the lobby. "Are you hungry? I didn't know what you might like, but you've been out for a few hours."

"I'm not really certain that's a compliment." She laughed as well, sighing softly. As he pulled the bag out, she looked up at him in surprise, cheeks flushing softly. "You...got all of this for me? You didn't have to do that, ahjussi... Just bringing me here was enough. I mean, you saved me. And then you took care of me. You didn't even have to wait for me to wake up..."

"It's a compliment." He assured her with a grin, rubbing the back of his neck self-consciously at the last. "I know, I just...I don't know, I wanted to be sure you were okay. You've been through a rough night, and waking up in the hospital alone after something like that would have been even worse."

"It's a compliment." She repeated, smiling weakly, hand oving to her head again. "So instead I should wake up in the hospital with a strange man that refused to give me his name, admits to being a criminal, and likes to hide his face behind a mask?"

"In my defense, I didn't realize I was wearing the mask when I went to help you." He laughed softly, shaking his head. "But isn't that better than being alone? I would like this better if it were me."

"But the fact that you still wear it as a normal, every day accessory..." She laughed weakly, shaking her head as well before groaning softly. "I'm not sure if it's better. I"m still deciding." She laughed again.

"I hope I'm good conversation at least." He grinned, reaching out to place a hand lightly on her arm at the groan. "Are you all right? Do you need me to get anything?"

"You're...decent." She laughed weakly, surprised at the touch as she looked up at him with a small flush. "I'm okay. I just shook my head and shouldn't have. Everythign is still kind of...wobbly."

"Decent is better than awful." He concluded with a soft laugh of his own. "You need to be careful. You're lucky you didn't need stitches."

"I didn't need stitches? I guess that's good. I'd hate to be uglier Thani already am." She gavea soft laugh, shaking her head before groaning again. "Oh, this is going to take some getting used to..."

"You're not ugly at all, don't worry." He assured her with a grin. "They said you might be a little dizzy for a few days, but you'll make a pretty fast recovery. Are you sure you don't need anything for the pain?"

"You're lying." she luahged softly, fingers movig to the bandage on her head. She flushed softly. "I don't need anything I don't like medication. I can handle this." With a small smile, she looked up at him again. "So...now that I"m awake, will you abandon me, Baekhyun-si?"

"I'm not lying. I'd never lie about something like that." He assured her, shaking his head. At the last, his smile faded slightly, knowing the thought had crossed his mind a time or two before she woke. "...No." He said at last. "Not until I know you're okay and that you're free to go home. I mean, walking so late at night is what got you into trouble in the first place, and that was a crappy neighborhood."

"So are you intending to walk me home when I'm discharged, then?" She laughed weakly, winicing at the pain it brought before looking up at him again. "You think I"m not ugly, then?"
