A sequel to Assets? 😍🥰😘 FBND, spy AU
The panic attack she has when she gets back to her apartment can only be measured in tears as she starts pulling out her go bag and pulling out the last minute items she needs to burn her apartment and leave.
Cha Do-Hwi will find her and ruin the peace she finds in this tiny studio. She can’t risk this Enrique reporting to his superiors and Do-Hwi getting wind of it. Her life depends on it.
Dok-Mi’s hands shake as she tries to think of where she should go. She has no more safe houses and hotels can get expensive. Deep breaths aren’t helping when she has to sit down for several minutes. She wipes her eyes and puts her coats back on before grabbing her things.
She leaves a quick note and the next month’s rent for the sweet landlord before making her way to the train station. She picks a destination she knows nothing about and waits for the next train to take her there.
The wait is too long because Enrique sits down next to her with his smile and bright energy as he places her envelope and note onto her lap. “A professional wouldn’t leave anything like this. I looked into the name you gave me. It is unconscionable that she hasn’t been investigated. Would you like my help, ahjumma?”
She stares at him and he just smiles. “You are really fast, you know that? I had to run to catch up. Also, you put that key in the exact wrong place and I had to show off my acrobatics to get free in a reasonable amount of time. You are amazing, ahjumma. Who trained you?”
“No,” she whispers and the world begins to violently spin. She begs her brain, her stomach, her eyes to stop pulling her away from this terrifying creature. “No. Let me go. You don’t exist. Let me go.”
His eyes narrow, just slightly, before he crouches down in front of her and starts counting her breath for her. “I won’t let her find you, ahjumma.”
