"You..wouldn't." Her cheeks burned, fingers moving up into her hair to brush it back from her face before she managed to find the courage to look up at him. "I mean...You could do so much better than someone like me. Besides, I'm not so sure your mother would approve. Doesn't she want you dating some...rich, useful woman?:

"Wouldn't I?" He studied her, brushing a loose lock of hair out of his eyes. "You're beautiful, smart, you put up with me when I say the wrong things...and I like talking to you. I was looking forward to meeting you again before I saw you today. I don't care about money or usefulness, I care about who someone really is. If they make me happy."

"i really... Can't see you asking, Mr. Jung..." She flushed at the compliments, ducking her head again. He had wanted to see her...? Or was he saying it because he thought it was what she wanted to hear...? "So... You don't care at all that i can barely afford ramen noodles for dinner every night? That my electricity is shut off every other month? It doesnt bother you at all?"

"Not even a little." He shook his head before realizing how that could sound, correcting quickly, "I mean, it bothers me that you live like that, but it's not a deal-breaker. It's something that worries me. Living like that must be tough." His frown shifted to a small smile after a moment, adding, "You are...really cute when you blush like that."

"So...it bothers you because you worry, not because it doesn't make me a good potential partner?" She raised a brow, clearly surrprised by his statement. As she heard the last, she felt her cheeks heat even darker and she looked away. "I'm...I'm not cute. And I"m not blushing!"

"Yeah, that's exactly it." He nodded, relaxing a little as she showed that she understood. His smile widened at the reaction, adding, "You are. And you are. I can see it pretty clearly."

The flush darkened even more and she was about to argue before the woman approached the table wit their drinks and asked for their order. Glad for the rescue, she shot the woman a look of thanks before turning her gaze back to the menu.

Ordering a simple favorite, he glanced over to her, brushing a strand of hair from his eyes. "And whatever you'd like."

She nodded, telling the woman she'd take the same before she moved back into the kitchen. She smiled up at him, the look weak, clearly nervous. "You really know what you like here..."

"I've been here a lot." He nodded, looking over to her once again. "Are you all right? I hope this isn't uncomfortable for you."

She shook her head. "No. I mean...I'm not uncomfortable, I'm just... I'm nervous. You were talking so casually about asking me on a real date I almost believed you. It's...awkward to think about." She laughed weakly, looking up at him. "But I'm not uncomfortable, no."

"You should believe me. I meant it." He raised an eyebrow at her reaction, taking a sip from the glass at his elbow. "But if it's not something you want to talk about, I can change the subject."

He meant it...? Yet he still techincally hadn't asked her. She looked up at him, cheeks flushed softly. "I just...I'm not really sure how to react to..to it all, I guess."

"Should I change the subject?" He asked with a small smile, loving the way she looked when she blushed. She was incredibly attractive, he noted once again. Maybe a normal cover, a normal dating life would be a good cover for those trying to hunt him down.

"You should...talk about whatever youw ant to talk about. Don't worry about me. I'm fine." She laughed weakly, shaking her head. "I just..have never really had attention like this before."

"I'm honestly surprised. You're...stunning. I expected you to tell me you already had a boyfriend the first time we talked." He felt an odd amount of comfort in the fact that she hadn't rejected him yet. She didn't seem uncomfortable in the sense that she wanted him to stop. And she was sure to tell him if he went too far, right?

"Stunning? Stunning isn't what I'd use...to..." she flushed darker, shaking her head before looking up at him again. "You..really think I'm..attractive?"

"I've thought that since we met." He nodded with a smile, the act far more sincere than any previous. "I thought I was a little more...blunt in telling you that."

"you were but i assumed it was a joke, sarcasm or something.. " with a weak laugh, she shook her head. "I just... Don't get called attractive, Taekwoon-si."

"I'm surprised." He took another drink, smile widening. "I don't joke or lie about things like that. If I tell you something I see in you...I mean it."
