My eyes remained closed but I can hear someone rummaging through something. "Where the fuck–Oh!" I'm assuming that the person has already found what he was searching for. He doesn't sound like Hyunjin at all so who the hell saved me? And where am I right now? Surely not in my own dorm room.

I heard the footsteps come closer to me then a pair of hands went to touch my neck gently and the next thing I felt was pain, making me screech and lift my body up but was pushed back down.

"Hey I'm sorry but you have to stay still, this will end soon." The voice seems familiar. Another pain was felt and actually, it's worse. The first seemed to be some antiseptic liquid and now it's a needle, probably a syringe with medicine?

I squeezed my eyes and bit my lip rather too harshly as I fought back another screech. Instead, tears fell from my eyes. "I'm sorry, I'm sorry," the person whispered and brushed away my hair that's been covering the side of my face. "It's all done now." I heard the guy walk away so I finally opened my eyes, with a bit of scrimmage though.

"Kim Woojin!" I exclaimed with pure incredulity.

He turned to face me and flashed me a soft smile. "Hi," he casually said before fixing the mess that he made through rummaging.

"Where the hell am I?" I asked as a I slowly sit up. "And what happened?"

"I happened to be passing by the alley where I saw you being practically eaten so I saved you and brought you to my house since I don't know how am I supposed to bring you back to your dorm," he said with a nervous chuckle.

"You killed that person?" I gaped, staring at nothing in particular.

"It was not a person," he proclaimed, leaning against the door with his arms crossed over his chest.

I furrowed my eyebrows as I remembered what it was. "A ghoul..." I adjusted a bit on what must be his bed and touched my neck where I remember I was bitten and felt a bandage placed over it. "What do you know about ghouls?"

"Almost everything..."

"Please fill me in."

"A ghoul is a creature that's close to a vampire but is both a demon," he paused as he grabs a chair to sit on. "And a vampire." He sat down and placed both his elbows on either of his thighs then clasped his hands together, leaning forward a bit.

"How were you able to kill it?"

Hyunjin wasn't lying at all...but how did he know about ghouls?

"But how were you able to kill it?"

"I've been studying about them for quite a while now."

"Why?"

"Because," He paused and stared at me intently in the eyes. "Its kind had killed my parents." All I could do was look shocked, I couldn't say anything. "I thought that they had already left Seoul but I guess I was wrong. Good thing I was around."

"What were you doing there anyway?"

"I was planning to get a job at the restaurant as a singer."

"You sing?" I gave him an astonished look.

"Yeah," he said and smiled. "You can go ahead and rest some more. You can leave tomorrow when you're stable."

"I want to ask you a lot of questions," I stated softly. "But I'm lost for words."

"It's okay Jinwoo, I know you're in shock. Go ahead and sleep, you'll feel better tomorrow," he said as he walks toward me. I sinked into the duvet and just stared at him.
