A locally-run coffee shop frequented by the group's younger members. Seems to do well despite not having much foot traffic.

"So...you really considered asking me on a date, then?" Her cheeks still flushed, eyes moving to his once again.

"I'm still considering it. But I'm not sure if you'll shoot me down spectacularly." He chuckled softly, glad that she hadn't left already. Maybe he was doing pretty okay after all.

"maybe. Or maybe it'll be in a boring way." She laughed softly, before her cheeks flushed and she looked down at get cup. "Or... Who knows. Maybe i won't say no at all. Momentary lapse in judgement or something..."

"I'm hoping for the lapse in judgement, to be honest." He admitted with a chuckle, feeling his own face heat. Now that was surprising. "Does that mean I haven't made a total ass of myself yet?"

He wanted her to say yes... As she heard the last, she felt her own surge of confidence and, with a flush, she looked up at him, held his gaze, and spoke softly. "I guess that depends on how many more times you are going to talk about asking me on a date without actually doing it."

"I assumed you would want to get to the end of this meal before I asked. To see if you could stand sitting and talking to me again." He shot her a wink, feeling his heartbeat pick up at the response. That wasn't what he expected. She was growing more fascinating by the minute.

"or maybe i could decide now and if today doesn't go well, I'll just stand you up like you stood up your earlier date." She laughed softly, shaking her head. "Or maybe I've seen through your lies and you it."

"I sent her a message." He defended with a soft laugh, reaching out on a boost of confidence and laying his hand over hers. "Will you go on a date with me, Sunmin?" He asked, feeling his heart give another hard beat as he realized he was honestly nervous to hear her answer. Would she shoot him down anyway?

'You sent her a pitiful--" she cut off, feeling his hand on her own. Her heart jumped as she looked up at him. She really hadn't expected him to task her, not liek this, not to mean it. But he seemed to really want her to say yet, he seemed to be almost...nervous to hear her answer. With a darker flush, she looked up at him, unable to hold back a small smile. "I'd love to."

He felt his chest swell at the answer, grinning brightly before ducking his head in embarrassment over his obvious excitement. "I'm...I'm really glad." He said at last, unsure of how to compose himself. "Since I dragged you out here...you can choose where we go. Wherever you want, whenever you like." Absently he was aware of the burning gaze of the woman at the front counter, hoping that this display would be enough to stop her flirtations before more dire measures had to be taken.

Flushing at his obvious excitement, she looked down as well, surprised to find how warm and comforting his hand was on her own. She cleared her throat with a flush as well. "You're really glad? I didn't think you'd get so...excited." With a soft laugh, a weak laugh, she shook her head. "I think we're being watched. I swear, she's burning a hole in the back of my head..."

"I was really hoping you wouldn't shoot me down." He admitted, giving her fingers a gentle squeeze. At the last, he chuckled softly. "I think she's mad that my attention is on someone far more interesting and beautiful."

"Did you really think I would?" Laughing softly, feeling his hand, she flushed a bit darker. As she looked up at him, she heard the last and the flush darkened more than ever. "...I...more interesting and beautiful? She's...like a friggin model."

"I don't see it." He shrugged lightly. "It's...hard to describe, but seeing you here in comfortable clothes, smiling, laughing...it's more beautiful to me than any model or carefully-made beauty in the city."

"So you're sayingthat if I did myself up for our date, I'd be ugly?" She felt her cheeks heat once again. He was saying that her normal, boring, bland self was more beautiful than this beauty across the cafe?

"That's not what I meant." he was quick to correct, shaking his head. "You'd still be beautiful. But...you are anyway. Anything you do is just...altering it, making it a different kind of beauty." Then, ducking his head again, he added, "I'm...not making any sense, am I."

"I...think you're making perfect sense, actually." She smiled, fingers turning over to grasp his gently, giving them a squeeze. "And I'm...flattered that you think so highly of me. Or..my appearance, at least."

"I think highly of all of you." He looked back up to her, feeling his heartbeat pick up at the contact before he gave a soft smile.

She laughed softly, trying to ignore the way her heart pounded. She was about to speak when the food was brought to their table and her cheeks burned. She pulled her hand free from his and she looked up at him, giving a soft, weak laugh. "We've been caught."

"Not like I have anything to hide." he chuckled softly, thanking the woman as she set the plates before them. He found he missed the warmth of her hand in his more than he should, wondering if she was getting under his skin faster than he expected.
