"Really..? That..that quickly?" She could tell if it was someone she wanted...just by a kiss? "So...then why do people wait until their married to kiss? I mean...why are you supposed to wait if you can tell that quickly..? Wouldn't it make more sense to kiss someone first to see if you even..connect?" Except marriage wasn't for connections..it was for benefits...familial benefits. Which is why she had no say in what happened to her...It was her duty to keep the family on the track up...not pulling them down. As she heard him describe the kisses, she frowned slightly. "...How...how do you kiss, then? Do you do it soft and sweet? Or burning? Slow?" Was a kiss different with every person...?

"Exactly." He nodded, pleased that she had come to that conclusion. "Waiting until you're married is something that people used to do fifty years ago...and most of those marriages were either abusive or loveless, and a lot probably ended in divorce. It makes so much more sense to test the waters first." At the last, he hummed softly. "All of the above. Depending on my mood, on how they make me feel...you kiss someone good morning or good night differently than you would in the heat of passion, or when you're waning to tell them how much you care about them."

The words he spoke made sense, more sense than she cared to admit. If her brother found out she'd talked to anyone about this, she would literally lose her life... As her eyes moved to his, she forced herself to look away again, cheeks burning darker. "All of the above? How can one person be capable of kissing so many different ways? I thought...kissing was a simple thing, just...something that's done, not something you...you feel."

"There's a lot of emotion you can use through touch. Sometimes words just don't cut it, you know?" He nodded with a smile. "Body language is universal...and a lot clearer most of the time. I'm not the best speaker, but I think I'm pretty good at letting the people I care about know how I feel." After a moment, he added thoughtfully, "Sometimes it's soft, sometimes it's heated, sometimes it's just...awestruck."

"So...when you can't find the words to say something, you kiss them?" She looked up at him curiously, cheeks burning once again. "Awestruck?" After a moment, she cleared her throat. "So..have you ever kissed someone you...didn't care about?"

"Emotionally? Sometimes. But that's where everything was passion, heat, physical attraction...and that's got a kind of kiss all its own." he nodded, ruffling his hair as he thought of how to describe something that had been so natural to him for so long. "And yeah, I do. If I really want them to know how I feel and I just can't get the words to come out right."

"So...there's a difference between someone you want...physically and someone you care about? The way you touch them, the way you act with them is different?" She couldn't hide the curiosity in her eyes, cheeks flushing with each new bit of information she was receiving. Shouldn't she not be asking about this...? "I...really shouldn't be asking. I mean...it's not my business. There's only one man I'd ever kiss....so I don't need to know all of this I just... I can't imagine what it's like."

"It's hard to describe." He nodded with a laugh. "But there's a difference. And honestly, what's the harm in knowing? Half the fun of life is seeing how other people think, isn't it?"

She nodded, thinking his words over for a moment before flushing once more. "And... Do you...i mean h-have you..ever kissed a stranger, too?"

"I try to learn something about her first." He shrugged lightly. "When it's all chemistry and passion and we both want to have a little fun."

"and you've never kissed another man?" So strangers could kiss, friends could kiss, lovers could... What had her family taught her for this man to act so... Different from everything she'd learned? Were they old values? He'd said her way of thinking died out fifty years ago. Was that just for his way of thinking? Or was she really alone in these thoughts?

"Never." He shook his head, shifting to get more comfortable on the couch. "But you never know, the opportunity might come up and I won't want to say no. It's unlikely but possible."

With a soft laugh at his words, she looked up at him. "You're a strange man, Mr. Jung." After a moment, she cleared her throat. "And...what about me...? Since I'm...I'm so conservative, since I think so differently than you do...do you think I'd kiss well..?

"I never said I wasn't." He shrugged with a laugh of his own. At the last, he tilted his head, studying her before answering. "I think...you would be honest. Sincere...you'd kiss sweetly, and learn pretty quickly what you like."

As her cheeks flushed even darker, she felt her heart race at his words. He seemed to think she'd kiss sweetly..was that a good thing? Was that the kind of kiss a man like him liked...? Why did she care if he'd like it? Her cheeks burned even darker and she bit her lip. "That'...doesn't mean I'd do it well..."

"No one knows how to kiss well on the first try. Believe me; I was awful my first time." He shook his head, smile never fading. "But it's easy to figure out."

She flushed soflty at his words, shaking her head. She likely would never be a good kisser....and she shouldn't want to be, should she...? After a moment, she smiled. "I feel like..I should stop asking aout this stuff."

"I don't mind answering." He shrugged coolly, hoping that she wouldn't draw into herself again. The more she knew, he mused, the more she seemed to want to know. Hopefully he could encourage her to have an opinion of her own.

"I know you don't. I'm sure you're bursting at the seams to try to corrupt me." She laughed softly, the sound weak before she looked up at him again. "But I don't think it's something I..should really be asking about in the fist place. Can we...can we just turn something on again? Something fun to watch?"

"Not corrupt," He defended with a laugh of his own. "Just...to give you another point of view to consider. How do you know what's right if you've never seen the other side?" At the last, he shrugged, turning back to the screen to flip through the channels again. "Stop me if you see anything that looks good."
