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

"We haven't even had a first date yet and you're already asking me for a second?" She laughed softly, shaking her head before her cheeks burned. Date, she'd said. This wasn't a date. He hadn't asked her on a date... Shaking her head to try to clear her mind, she gave another weak laugh. "Not date...but I mean we haen't even gone ot once and you're so sure you'll want to do it again?"

"I'm sure. If you can stand being around me for this one." He added, shooting her a wink as he turned toward the street he would need. "I mean, we keep running into each other..."

"For this one..." She flushed, surrprised he hadn't denied the idea of a date as well. Her eyes moved to his, flushign darker at the wink as he turned onto the street. "We do. I think you're stalking me, Mr. Jung."

"If I were stalking you, I'd be a lot less subtle. I barely know how to talk to women." He shook his head with a laugh. "And if you reported me, that would look awful on any application to the police..."

"You see me as a woman?" And not just a stray he'd picked up in a cafe and fed once..? Her heart jumped, her cheeks flushed at the thought. At the last, she couldn't hold back a small smile. "I guess you're right. So not stalking...Then what? Fate?"

"Shouldn't I?" He asked in return, raising an eyebrow as he glanced over to her once again. His smile widened at the last, wondering just how much fate had a hand in his life if he had decided to take matters of life and death into his own hands. "Fate...that sounds more likely."

"I...I don't know. I've never really... Thought about anyone seeing me that way. It's...odd. And i know you don't really see me like that anyway, not really... Its... Just an odd thought." At the last, she nodded as well, watching the buildings pass them by. "Fate it is, then."

"You think I don't see you as a woman?" He asked, rounding the last corner and pulling into the parking lot of a small diner. "I'm surprised that you're not used to it, looking as pretty as you do."

"No. Why would you? I'm a stray you had to buy tea for the day we met." She laughed softly, shaking her head as her gaze moved back to him as they parked. As she herad the last, her cheeks flushed softly and she watched him closely. "I'm...not pretty, Mr. Jung."

"I think you're beautiful and clever, and a little unlucky." He corrected, shaking his head. "No matter what you believe about yourself." At the last, he looked to her with a softer smile, meeting her gaze. "You're not a stray."

"Unlucky?" She'd ignore the beautiful and clever comments..they were things she wasn't sure she could ever believe..but arguing with him did no good. At the last, as he turned his attentiont o her, she felt her cheeks flush softly. "I'm not a stray..?"

"Your unluckiness was what got us to meet, remember? Or maybe I was just the lucky one." He laughed softly, nodding at the last. "You're not. Why would you think that you are?" Realizing that they were still sitting in front of the restaurant, he got out of the car, moving to open her door for her.

"You were the-- You've got to be joking." She laughed weakly, looking up at him and raising a brow. AT the last, she gave a weak smile. "I've kind of always been the stray. It's just...something I've gotten used to. I'm the person everyone feels they have to help because I'm so...pathetic." As he left the car, she reached for her own handle before realzigin he was in front of her, opening the door. It felt like a date. It wasn't a date, she had to remind herself, cheeks flushing.

"Why do people think you're pathetic?" He asked in genuine confusion, waiting until she was out of the car before shrugging out of his jacket and tossing it into the backseat to join the tie. Unbuttoning the first two buttons of his shirt, he relaxed a little, glad that he had traded a stuffy ordeal for much better company.

"I have two jobs, I go to school full time and I still struggle just to make rent." She shrugged, giving a small smile. Her back was to him for a moment before she heard the shift and turned to face him, seeing him unbutton his shirt. Her heart gave a hard bump and her cheeks flushed softly. "I guess...they think I sholdn't have such a hard time with two jobs."

"Is it that your rent is too high? It's expensive to live in the city, even in the slums...maybe they're not aware of how hard it is to be on your own." He offered, leading her to the door and holding it open for her. A warm greeting from the woman inside brought a smile to his lips.

"I don't really care if they do think so bad of me, I know how hard I work and that's all that matters." She laughed softly. As he opened the door, she looked up at him in suprrise again. He was being so...gentlemanly. Why? "You don't have to be so...chivalrous, you know." With a weak laugh, she glanced at the pretty woman inside. She was eyeing Taekwoon like a piece of candy, greeting him by name. How often did he come? How many times had he brought a woman here...? "You come here often..."

"It's...second nature. I can try to stop if it bugs you." He shrugged, leading the way to his favorite table with a wave to the staff. "It's the best food in the city, honestly. The woman that owns the place--that girl's mother--is an old friend of my family. She treats me like another son." He swiped a pair of menus from another table, passing one to her with a smile.

"You don't have to stop i fyou don't want to. I just meant...if you're trying to impress me or something, you don't have to. I'm not high-maintenance or anything. YOu could treat me like crap and I probably wouldn't even react." She smiled weakly, watching him move in surprise. He seemed so content, like he belonged there. "That girl was watching you like you were the...most attractive thing she's ever seen. I'm surprised you didn't seem to notice. fadboufadsffFUCK HONGBITCH PUTAFUCKINGSHIRTONBUTDON'TTHOUGH

((WHEEZING. DYING. I'M JUST IMAGINING YOU TRYING TO REPLY AND JUST SUDDENLY ABS))

"I'll have to remember to tone it down. I've been doing things like this for so long that it's just...normal for me." He grimaced as she mentioned the woman, opening the menu with a sigh. "Don't remind me. She's one of the ones my mother tried to set me up with, and after one date, it was clear that we're...not a match. At all. I don't know what she likes more, my looks or my bank account...but she couldn't care less about the rest of me."
