    Summary

    “Are you actually insane?”

    At the register, Dongsik glances up from counting the bills and almost drops them all over the floor. Well, well, well. Of all the grocery stores, in all the cities, in all the world, he walks into mine. Dongsik greets Han Juwon, like he does with all customers, with a friendly smile. “I thought we established that I am.”

    “Lee Dongsik-ssi, you madman. Why did you do this?” Straightforward as ever.

    “I’m not going to get any work done with you here, am I?” Dongsik sighs, and leans both of his elbows against the counter. Instead of prevaricating, this time, he supplies the serious, honest answer: “The people of Manyang deserve to have their ghosts chased away. They have happy memories of this store, and I want to overwrite the sins that have occurred here.”

    “And what about you?” Han Juwon takes a step closer. “Will anyone chase your ghosts away?”

    In which the killing of inner demons is a life-long process, self-destruction is a tough habit for Dongsik to break, and a certain coiffed inspector prince returns to Manyang to hold another man’s hand and guide him through all the leftover grief.

    Summary

    "You're okay," Dongsik says, quietly, and Juwon nods.

    He nods, despite not appearing to fully grasp what Dongsik had said, and breathes out, "Just…" and tugs at the older man's neck.

    Summary

    And, there in the doorway, a woman that Dong-sik has never seen before.

    ...but that isn't true, is it?


    Dong-sik has a visitor. Yu-yeon has a dream.

    Summary

    “Is that not something you have experience with? Kneeling.”

    Dongsik dropped his smile on the last word. His voice came out heavy, a tone anchored to the word he hadn’t used in a long time.

    Joowon’s pupils blew out, his lips parting.
     
    Ah.

    Summary

    Mujin has his shirt halfway unbuttoned before he realises Taeju hasn’t moved from the doorway. He pauses and raises his brows at Taeju, a silent question.

    “I’ll keep watch, sir.”

    Mujin’s lips quirk, “Keep watch on me in my own bathhouse?”

    Taeju gulps, quietly embarrassed. Not many know of this particular business of Mujin’s and the private wing is even lesser known, never mind the implications of watching his boss in a bathhouse. But still. “You never know what might happen.”

     

     [Set before the events of the show, Taeju is still relatively new to the gang and Mujin does his best to take care of him.]
