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

"You think you'll screw up? Im certain I'll screw up. It seems we're a great pair, ren't we?" She laughed, shaking her head. "Maybe we have such similar personalities that we don't have to worry about tact."

"Maybe we won't scare each other off, then." He shook his head with a laugh. "If I insult you on accident, just insult me back. Then I'll know I crossed a line." He offered, finding the street she had directed him toward and turning to find her building.

"We won't scare each other off. We'll just debate every little thing." She laughed softly, smiling at his instructions. Nodding, she looked out the window. "Deal. An insult for an insult." As he pulled up to her building, she looked back at him. "Give me like...five minutes. I'd invite you in, but trust me, you don't want to go in there. the heat doesn't work, it's a mess, windows are cracked. But I'll be right back out, alright?"

"I'll keep the car running." he was surprised to hear that her apartment was in such dire straits. This girl worked in a crap job with a crap apartment...was there anything in her life to enjoy? Leaning back in his seat, he fiddled with the radio, trying to find a good song.

She disappeared into the building, returning in almost five minutes wearing a pair of fitted jeans and a loose tshirt that looked just a little too big, yet still clung in the right places. She pulled her hair down and brushed it to smooth it out. WAlking back to the car, she climbed in, looking up at him with a small smile. "I feel much better now."

As she approached the car once again, he looked over to her, feeling his breath stop in his chest. She was...absolutely stunning. Smiling as she took a seat, he had to remember to breathe, running his tongue over his lips. "You look like you do...you look incredible."

As she heard his words, she looked up at him, cheeks flushing and brow furrowing. "Incredible...? It's...jeans and a tshirt. It's not that impressive." Her hair fell into her eyes , tickling her nose as she watched him. "I think you've gotten into the habit of trying to flatter anyone...and your words are just kind of..empty now." With a soft laugh, she pulled her seatbelt over and buckled it in.

"It's...flattering. Nice. Much better than your work uniform." He was digging the hole deeper, shaking his head as heat crept up his cheeks. "Actually I don't like flattery. Empty words piss me off more than anything; I'd rather just tell the truth. Otherwise it's wasting everyone's time."

"It's jeans and a t-shirt." She laughed softly, shaking her head. "You seriously think this looks that good?" She looked up at him, cheeks flushed softly. Her hair fell in her eyes again and she blew it away before glancing out the window. "..where are we going?"

"It does. I mean it." He nodded, trying and failing to will the blush from his cheeks as he glanced over to her at the last. "I had a few ideas. Would you rather go somewhere more formal or causal?"

Gesturing to what she wore now, she laughed softly. "I don'tthink I'm dressed for formal, ahjussi." She laughed again, looking up at him again before raising a brow. "You're...blushing."

"Would it matter? I saw a few in your restaurant wearing pajamas." he pointed out with a soft laugh. At the last, the sound faltered a little, clearing his throat. "Am I?"

"It..could matter. There are some places that wouldn't even let us in dressed like this." AS she heard teh sound, she couldn't hold back a small smile. "You are. What's making you blush..?"

"I'm...embarrassed. I keep saying things that I don't expect to say. Even if they are true." He admitted, shaking his head after a moment. "The restaurants that would care about that are ones I don't like going to, don't worry. They're a hassle, and this is supposed to be fun."

"So..you have no filter, nothign telling ou to think before ou speak? Is that what you're saying?" She laughed softly again, shaking her head. As she heard he last, she gave a soft hum, thinking it over for a moment before shaking her head again. "How about something casual. I'd...really hate to stand out." Though, she was likely going to anyway..an average looking woman like her with a man that looked so...perfect like him.

"None at all. I don't think much about what I say until after I say it." he shook his head wit ha nervous chuckle. At the last, he nodded. "I'll dress down a little to make sure I don't pull too much attention to us." He teased with a smirk. "Casual sounds great."

"Sounds like you get into a lot of fights." She laughed softly again, looking up at him, raising a brow. 'Dress down? do you even have a change of clothes in here..?" God, that smirk... how could he look so damn good...?

"A lot of debates." He corrected with a laugh, pulling the tie from his pocket and tossing it into the backseat. "No, but I can leave the jacket here." He added with a laugh, turning off of the highway toward a restaurant he had in mind.

As he pulled the tie off, her cheeks flushed and she looked up at him before moving her gaze back to the window. She couldn't be caught staring.... She could think of a few things to do with that tie.. The flush darkened. "I'm just not good enough for a dressed up Jung Taekwoon, is that it?" With a soft laugh, clearly joking, she shook her head.

"If you want a meal with a dressed up Jung Taekwoon, we can always do this again." He pointed out, raising an eyebrow wih a soft laugh. Despite her joke, he found that he would like to make this a regular occurrence.
