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

Returning her smile, he held her a little more closely." I can carry you if you change your mind. I'm stronger than I look."

"I know. You carried me to the hospital. That could have just been adrenaline, so you may not be able to now but I remember that, at least." She laughed weakly, shuddering against him. "I'm glad you can at least keep me up.

"I'm stronger than that. I bet I could carry you across the city without breaking a sweat." He offered with a chuckle, bending a little to make it easier to move alongside her.

"I'm not so sure about that.I'm heavier than you realize with no adrenaline going." She laughed softly, thanking him for the shift. "Isn't it..hard to help me like this?"

"You're just short." he teased with a laugh of his own. "You think I can't do it? I'll prove you wrong." He added, grin showing the mischief sparking in his mind.

She rolle her eyes at his words, shaking her head. "I'm not that short. And you wouldn't dare. I dont' think you'd get further than two blocks carrying me now."

"You challenged me. Now I have to." He grinned, sweeping her into his arms with a soft laugh, starting down the street at a much more comfortable pace. "You don't weigh anything, what are you worried about?"

She gave a startled squeak, arms wrapping aorund his neck as the world spun for a moment at the shift. She gave a soft groan, head leaning against his shoulder before she managed to relax. "I'll get heavy quickly, just wait..." She laughed weakly, one hand resting on his chest gently. "You don't have to carry me..."

"I know I don't have to. I want to. You need to rest as much as possible, anyway." He reminded her, carrying her with ease as he added, "Where to?"

AS she let her head rest against his shoulder, she felt her heart jump. It was racing...because he was near? That was odd. She'd been near to men before. She'd never found them attracitve before but that wasn't the point. After a moment, she cleared her throat. "Um...there's ahotel..about four blocks away..."

"You stay in a hotel?" He asked, raising an eyebrow. She had mentioned in passing that she was headed home, but he had assumed it was an apartment with the neighborhood she was walking through.

She shrugged. "I...like to be able to get out quickly without anyone being able to trace back to me..." She flushed softly. "That..makes me seem shady. I just..don't like having strings to tie me down, that's all."

"That has to get expensive..." He pointed out, more concerned about the strain on her wallet than over her nomadic nature. After all, it was his normal to be on the move as much as possible.

"It's better than the alternative." She frowned, recalling many times she'd been screwed over by family, friends...the reason she was no longer in Busan, after all. "I know it sounds crazy...but I'm safer when I"m on the move." It didn't help that she was the daughter of a very well-known thief...and the police were always after her for his whereabouts. Information she didn't have...but they never believed her. And she was tired of being arrested over her father's choices.

"That sounds like you've had some bad experiences staying with people you know." He knew that more than she might know. When he first started digging into Seoul's underground to find any job he could, some of the acquaintances he made were too happy to have a fresh-faced criminal to use as a scapegoat...

"A few. You'd be surprised if I went into detail...so I won't shock you." She looked up at him, smiling weakly. "What about you? You don't seem the type to like to be tied down, too have an anchor. Am I right?"

"I've been through enough that I'm not easily surprised anymore." He assured her with a soft chuckle. As the conversation shifted, he raised an eyebrow. "You're right about that. I know how it feels to hop around hotels, but it's tough to afford after a while."

"Trust me." She laughed weakly. "You'd be surprise." Hearing him admit to hopping around, she looked up at him and smiled slightly. "It's tough to afford..but it's still better than the alternative..."

"At least until you get a few hideouts set up. Then you can move from one to the other and only have to pay a few months in advance. If you stagger them just right, it's much more affordable." He shrugged, speaking without thinking as he gave a couple they passed a nod of greeting, still carrying her with ease.

She flushed at the nod the ocuple gave, giggling to each other about how cute of a couple they were. She looked up at him, flushing a bit darker. "You seem to have a lot of experience in this area."
