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

She couldn't hold back a surprised laugh, looking up at him curiously. "So...getting to know me better is one of the benefits to volunteering at hte shelter?" She couldn't imagine why that would be...but she oculdn't deny that her heart raced with the idea.

"Why wouldn't it be?" He shrugged lightly, smiling at the idea. It was for the benefit of the music video, he told himself, as well as what he hoped would be a growing friendship.

"I don't know. I mean...I am just here to help with your video.." She laughed weakly, shaking her head. "I didn't expect to see you all again after the video is done. You barely even know me. I'm not even sure you remember my name, Mr. Jung."

"Kim Naeun-si. My memory isn't that bad, you know." he laughed softly, shaking his head. "And I'm not...as cold as I look. I like talking to you. If you're not sick of me by then, I'd like to keep talking to you after the video is done."

Hearing him use her name made her heart jump and her cheeks flush. After a moment, she gave a small smile, unaware that the smile was brighter than any of the stars above them. "You like talking to me now. How can you be so sure you'll want to see me afterward if you really don't know me that well now? You may get sick of me...before I get sick of you."

"I doubt that." He felt his heart skip at the sight of her smile, wondering for a moment if she had any idea of how beautiful she was. Unbidden, words came together in his mind, stringing a phrase that had the potential to be a song. "If I haven't decided that you're not worth talking to by now, you're doing really well. Normally it doesn't take long for me to decide if I don't like someone."

She bit her lip, still smiling at his words. She looked up at him, realizing it was getting just a little easier to look at him the more she talked to him. "So you think you won't get sick of me, then? You like me?

"I like you." He assured her with a widening smile. "If I haven't gotten sick of you by now, you have nothing to worry about, I promise."

"Be careful saying that. People might get the wrong idea." She laughed softly, glad to see him smile. She felt...comfortable withhim. Or atleast as comfortable as she could be. "I think...I'm actually starting to look forward to this video filming." If nothing else came out of this, she at least had one friend.

"I know the feeling. I'm glad, though; I'd hate for you to be uncomfortable with me--and the rest of us." He added, brushing his hair back from his face.

She laughed softly. "I thnk Hongbin and Hyuk are the only ones that make me uncomfortable. It's not...terrible but...Hyuk makes the comments that I"m attractive and that I'm...sexy." Her cheeks burned at the word. She wasn't sexy. She'd never been called sexy in her life. "And Hongbin...Hongbin is a nice kid...but he..he...seems to have a crush on me. I don't really know how to handle that."

"I can have a talk with him and remind him to be more respectful. He means well, he just...has no filter." He offered with a nervous laugh. At the last, he hummed thoughtfully. "Do you want me to talk to him, too?"

"It's not...disrespectful. I'm just not used to the compliments. I don't know how to handle them and...I feel like he's teasing me." She laugehd weakly, shaking her head. As she heard the last, she gave another laugh. "What would you say to him? Get over you crush?"

"If he's teasing you, you'll know. Believe me." His tone dropped slightly, recalling the endless pranks the maknae had pulled on the others...especially his somber teammate. At the last, he flushed slightly, shaking his head. "I...don't know, honestly. I'm just used to having to talk to them for something. Hakyeon nags sometimes...but they listen to me."

"I'll know? Is he meaner than this?" She laughed softly, shaking her head as she looked up at him again. "You don't have to worry about me, Mr. Jung. They won't scare me off...I just..don't know how to handle them, that's all. Hongbin will lose interest soon, trust me. And Hyuk...I don't know about Hyuk."

"And a lot more obvious." He nodded with a weak chuckle. After a moment, he added with a soft sigh, "No one knows about Hyuk. But they're good kids...I promise."

Smiling weakly, she nodded. "I know they are. From the little bit that I've seen of all of you I know you all are. Wonsik...I think is my favorite." Cheeks flushing softly, she gave a nervous laugh. "A...aside from you, of course. I feel like I could talk to him without being nervous or afraid..like I'd get along with him well. I feel like...I could really call him a friend."

"Wonsik?" He asked, laughing softly at the admission. Hearing the last, he nodded. "He's...honestly one of the reasons I stayed as long as I have. At the beginning, I was too shy, too...closed off. He was the one to pull me out of my shell. I didn't realize until then that the others were really...intimidated by me. I think I seem more unfriendly than I mean to."

"I don't think you're unfriendly. I think you're quiet.." She laughed softly as well, looking up as another squirrel scurried by. It was getting late...she couldn't even see the sunlight anymore. "He seems the type to pull everyone out of their shells. He got to me a bit today. I imagine spending any more time than necessary with him will probably make me open up, too."

"He likes to know that everyone's happy. I don't think that this group would work so well without him...he makes it feel more like a family." He smiled softly, hearing a soft pop before the streetlights around them flickered to life. "I'm...not keeping you out late, am I?" He asked, realizing that the sun had long since set.
