Daehyun was having a hell of a night. The crowd had been better than he expected, screams of men and women alike ringing in his ears beneath the music as he worked his way across the stage. He had practiced for weeks to be sure that his voice was perfect, that the dance was flawless, that his body was in good enough shape to be shown off as layers were stripped away from his skin. He could feel the beat pumping in his veins, music flowing through his lungs and fueling each and every move. Bills hit the stage with increasing frequency and he knew that the goons that owned the bar would love the amount of drinks they were selling. He knew that if they figured out he did work for the other side they would toss him on his ass--if things ended nicely--but for all they knew he was a young, upcoming talent looking to make a few extra dollars by showing off his body. As the song wound to an end, he breathed heavily, feeling the gaze of the room linger on him as he moved offstage to order a water that he desperately needed.

HaNa had been in a bad mood all week. She has been going to school, trying desperately to pass her classes but with her two jobs, taking care of her sick mother, and hardly having any times to sleep, she was miserable and struggling way too much. Her one friend at the school saw her struggling and asked her to meet him at a local bar she'd never gone into. A bar, she hadn't realized, was for strippers and sex. So when she walked in at the tail end of the older man's dance, she froze in the doorway, cheeks burning, eyes wide. She'd never seen so much of a man before. Her heart jumped, her cheeks burned darker and she watched as sweat dripped down his chest, his stomach, disappearing down his hips before she forced herself to look away, turning away from the stage and praying no one had noticed her yet. Maybe she could still escape. But....one drink wouldn't hurt, right? After all, she was supposed to be meeting BoGum...

Thanking the bartender as a tall beer glass filled with water was placed in front of him, he downed most of it in one long gulp, trying to find his equilibrium once again as he combed his fingers through amber locks still dripping with sweat. He looked around at the crowd buzzing in the aftermath of his performance as they waited in the interim for another performer to come onstage, catching sight of a young woman that looked for all the world like she didn't belong. He had seen quite a few innocent young souls brought into places like these to "pop their cherry", raising an eyebrow as he tried to see just who had brought her so far out of her depth. Seeing no one, he thought he would have a little fun, sliding from his seat onto feet that were starting to sting, smiling as he greeted, "You look a little lost, if you don't mind me saying."

She had been looking at the attractive bartender, wondering if she could find her voice enough to speak...but she was nervous, she was shy...and she was terrified of being caught in a place like this. She was turning toward the door, determined to find Bogum the next day before she heard the words from a soft, deep voice...a voice that was surprisingly...warm. Wondering if it was someone that she knew, she turned back to face the man before freezing. She'd been in the process of speaking before her eyes met his and she realized who he was, that he was the man she'd just seen strip down and show off a body she was sure she'd dream about for months. Her breath caught and her cheeks burned. She dropped her gaze as if afraid she'd get into trouble for looking too closely and she gave a nervous laugh. "I'm...I'm meeting someone." or..she was supposed to be.

"I could help you find them if you want. This place is packed tonight, but I know faces pretty well." He offered, tilting his head at her embarrassment. This was adorable. She can't have been to a place like this before. With a warm smile, he added, "You won't get in trouble for looking, you know. I mean, it's kind of what I'm here for."

She shook her head. "No. No, if he doesn't show up n the next five minutes, I'll just go home. He's not the type to stand me up. He--" she cut off, hearing hte last. Her cheeks burned darker and she gave a nervous laugh. "Forgive me but...its a little awkward to be having such a...casual conversation with you after...after that." With another nervous laugh, cheeks burning darker than ever, she bit her lip. AT least he was clothed now... after a moment, her eyes finally moved back to his, giving him the first clear view of her face, hair falling in her eyes.

(She's talking about Bogum like he's a boyfriend. XDD)

((Dae's already fascinated. XD))

"Why is it awkward? I mean, there's always a real performer under a show like that, right?" He asked, eyes flashing a little in the dim lights as he felt his smile widen. "It's a strange thing for someone to bring his girlfriend to a place like this. No offense, miss, but it looks like this isn't your usual Friday night." She was pretty, he found, heart jumping a little at the sight. Whoever was meeting her was a lucky man.

(Of course. XDD I think BoGum will be gay. XDDD But he's really relally good at hiding it. Give Dae a chance to get jealous later of their friendship...utnil he finds out BoGum fucks guys. xDDD)

"Awkward because I've never--" she cut off, cheeks burning as she realized what she'd almost admitted. Her cheeks flushed even darker and she took a deep breath. "Though, I have to say, I'm not sure many people were focusing on your talents when they were so busy noticing other thigns." like his body...the way he moved..not the sound of his voice which, to her surprise, was oddly soothing. She flushed again and looked down. "Not..not that I"m one of them. I mean...you were very good, I just.. I mean..from what I saw. I didn't see much. I--...I'll...I'll just stop talking now." Laughing nervously, she shook her head again. AT the last, she shrugged, not realizing he'd called her a girlfriend, something she'd never been...espeically not with BoGum. "It's...not my usual. I've been pretty stressed, he wanted me to have a chance to unwind."

((XDDD I love it so much.))

He couldn't keep from chuckling, the sound showing light-hearted amusement rather than making fun of her. "What, you think my voice is better than my dancing?" He asked, trying to move into her line of sight subtly. "I hope you're able to have a chance to relax, miss. It looks like you're winding yourself up more than you're unwinding."

Or he was winding her up, her mind hissed and her cheeks flushed. With a nervous laugh, she nodded. "I don't know. I just mean your speaking voice is nice. I didn't hear you and I didn't really see you either. So I can't say your voice is...better." She laughed softly, jumping as she felt a soft hand at the small of her back. Turning her gaze to her friend, her eyes brightened and she smiled as the man leaned down to kiss her cheek gently. Her eyes moved to his and she smacked the man gently. "You ass! Why didn't you tell me this place was...there was...that..."

BoGum laughed softly, arm wrapped loosely around her waist. "I figured you'd enjoy the show." With a grin, he turned his gaze to the man she was talking to. A man, he was surprised to find, that was hot... sweaty..goodlooking. Was he straight? God, he hoped not. Holding out his free hand, he smiled. "I'm Choi BoGum." This man looked familiar...

"Jung Daehyun. I was just keeping your beautiful lady company." He took the man's hand with a graceful smile, sizing him up without really realizing. He was attractive in a comfortable sort of way. The kind of man one would see as the second lead in a drama. "I hope I didn't intimidate her too much." He added with a playful wink toward the girl. "She looked a little out of her depth."

(Of course he's the second lead. XDD Because Dae wants to be the first. ))

FEeling hte warm fingers around his hand, he smiled a bit wider. With a soft laugh, he squeezed the girl at his side. "Beautiful lady? You think she's beautiful? I'd never tell her that to her face." Except he did...often. Damn...the guy was straight. He could tell by the way he watched HaNa...by the way he seemed almost jealous of their interaction. Was he interested in BoGum's friend...? "I'm sure you didn't intimidate her. She's not hte type to get intimidated. In fact...she's the most confident girl I know." With a grin, he looked down at the girl at his side affectionately. For a moment, he wondered if maybe he should make this man jealous...maybe get her a chance to get laid. God knew she needed it.

((Yyyyyyyyyep XD))

"Maybe you should. She deserves it." He shot the man a wink, feeling something in his chest burn. He didn't know this girl, he told himself firmly. There was no way he should be feeling jealous that such a lovely thing already had a boyfriend. "Confident? You guys should come back for my show next week, then. I have ideas for ways to get into the audience, mess with some of the spectators...it'll be a blast."

BoGum raised a brow. "Are you suggesting I bring my girl back to a strip club specifcally for a stripper to...practically molest her?" He chuckled softly, giving her a squeeze again.

Feeling her cheeks burn darker, she looked up at her friend in surprise before turning her gaze back to Daehyun. Daehyun...that was an attractive name. "I..um... No offense but I'm not sure I'll be coming back here again. I"m honestly not sure why I'm here in the first p-" she cut off as music started and a new, attractive dancer took the stage. Cheeks burning, she tore her gaze from the stage. What had she gotten herself into. "BoGum-ah...I have work tonight. Tat paper is due tomorrow, remember?"

"If I promise to molest you both, would that make it more fair?" He asked with a soft chuckle, raising an eyebrow at the girl's embarrassment. Maybe Bogum's comment toward her confidence was a joke more than a fact to learn. "You're here to unwind after working so hard, aren't you? Maybe a drink will get the gears turning."

BoGum raised a brow. "You think I want to be molested by you? I'm not sure you're my type." With a soft laugh, he gave the girl at his side a squeeze again. "Come on. Have a drink. You're already out, aren't you? You haven't had a free night in weeks. I havent seen you in weeks. Give me a couple hours. You owe me."

AS she thought the words over, glancing up at her firned again, she nodded. "...fine. But I can't be out too late. I work tomorrow, you know that. I--" she looked up at the new man, eyes widening slightly. "Are you intending on joining us, Jung-si?"

"I wouldn't want to impose, but I'd be happy to if neither of you minded." His smile never faded, shrugging lightly. "Don't be afraid to be honest with me--if you want me to get lost, I totally understand."

"I'm not sure if I should worry about you trying to steal her away from me.." the man grinned, giving the girl at his side a gentle squeeze before he smiled. "I mean, she's the world to me.."

Brow furrowing at the display, she flushed before shrugging out of the man's grip. "You're being ridiculous.." looking up at the new acquaintance, she smiled slightly. "You can join us but I'm pretty boring..."

"Offstage, so am I." He replied with a wink, feeling the burning in his chest increase at the display. He shouldn't be flirting with a woman in a relationship. That was pretty much the most asshole-ish thing he could do. But he couldn't help it. "And don't worry I'm too tired to steal anyone away, Bogum-si. She's safe from me for now." He added with a wink. Teasing, however...that was fair game, wasn't it?

Bodum grinned. "That's a good thing. It's pretty difficult to get into those pants of her-ow!" He held his nose right after she pushed her elbow into it in a warning.

What had gotten into her friend? Why was he acting like this? Was he crazy? He didn't even like women si why was he acting so flirty...? And...was Daehyun flirting with her, too? Or was that just her imagination...? Was she going crazy...? "For...for now? Steal me away? I...I think I need a drink if you two are going to keep talking.."
