shaking her head, she looked up at him. "NO. I told you I don't own a t.v or anyting. I just usually read after work." She shrugged smoothly, looking up at him. "YOu can stay until it stops raining if you want, but all I have are books." mostly text books as fiction was pointless in her mind.

Thanking her for the chance to stay out of the rain, he thought for a moment before his eyes lit up with an idea. "Can I...show you something? It's a song, I'm curious to know what you'd think of it, if that's all right."

Frowning slightly at the words, she raised a brow. "I...told yOu I don't listen to music. Why do you think I'd like anything you show me?"

"A friend of mine wrote this one." He shrugged lightly. "Getting the opinion of someone who doesn't really like music means a totally different kind of criticism. A totally unbiased opinion. If you don't want to, that's all right." His smile never faded, watching her to see what she would do.

Frowning for a moment, she gave a small nod. "I mean...I probably won't be any help, but sure...Play it, I guess."

"Great, thank you." He brightened significantly, pulling his phone from his pocket and selecting the song. What he didn't mention, however, is that while the song was written by a friend, Daehyun had provided the vocals. It was a softer ballad, sweeter than he preferred singing, but it was a song he liked.

As he pressed play, she frowned slightly. Her eyes moved to his phone before she moved to the couch, taking a seat and listening to the message of the song closely. It didn't take long before she realized that, while she appreciated the song, it was the voice that she actually enjoyed. When the song wound to an end, she was silent After a long oment, she cleared her throat. "....the singer didnt seem like this was his normal style. But he wasn't bd. The song had a decent message." She liked it...but she couldn't asdmit that, could she?

"That's better than I hoped you'd say." he grinned. "You're right, that's a little slow for my liking. If it's going to be that speed, I'd rather sing something with a good beat behind it." Not realizing that he had slipped and revealed the singer's identity, he added, "Any details you liked? Didn't like?"

"If it's slow for your liking, why do you have the recording? YOu'd rather--" she cut off, realizing that the stunning voice she'd heard belonged to this man, her eyes moved to his in obvious surprise. "...you...you sing?" the detals he asked for had all but fled her mind.

"A little?" He rubbed the back of his neck, flushing as he realized that she'd caught on. "Actually...a lot. This is the third song that friend's asked me to sing for, but I'm singing for no reason all the time." He shrugged lightly. "So...I'm not bad, huh?"

"i thought this was a professional recording. I'm not sure i believe it's really you, ahjussi." She shook her head, unwilling yo believe she'd just complimented this man. Noy after the disagreements they'd had already...

"Would you like a live performance to prove it?" He asked, raising an eyebrow. "I can sing any request you want."

Her brow furrowed at his insistence, unsure if he was seriously threatening to sing for her. Any request? "What part of 'I don't know music' don't you understand?" She shook her head, looking at the window as the rain picked up. She'd told him he could stay until the rain stopped. What if it didn't stop raining before morning...?

"Well, do you want me to prove to you that I was the one singing or are you willing to take my word for it?" He shot her a wink, chuckling softly. Watching her gaze, he wondered for a moment if she would kick him out into the rain anyway.

She frowned, shaking her head again. "I still don't see it. I mean...you just don't seem the singer type. Aren't you just some barfly?"

"There's a lot to me." He chuckled, pulling up another song from his phone and hearing the first few chords. This was a sexier tune, something with a much better beat. As his own voice came from the speaker, he sang along, lowly enough that she could hear that they matched.

She was about to speak again before she heard the tone, the way this seemed to fit the man's voice better. She could tell it was the same singer and, when she heard the voice on top of the voice, she turned her gaze to him once more.. She was obviously surprised, raising a brow. "So...you are the singer."

"I told you I was." He nodded, letting the song continue without his assistance. "I like the beat in this one better, but I can't say much for the rest...I'm the one that wrote it."

"The song is...I mean, the lyrics are...a little more inappropriate, don't you think?" She raised a brow, looking up at him. He wrote it?

"That would be the point. It's about desire, losing yourself to what you want after trying to deny it for too long." He nodded, unsurprised by her interpretation.
