Jumping at the sound, he quickly asked if she was all right before he saw the scarf that she offered to him. His eyes lit up for a moment as he took it, running his fingers over the fabric. "It's...amazing. I love it." A genuine smile pulled at his lips, looking back up to her. "Thank you, miss Zoey. It's perfect."

Cheeks following softly, she nodded. "Im fine, you just... You surprised me, that's all. I... Half expected that you wouldn't cone at all." Flush darkening, she shook her head. "When... When were you wanting to go talk? Or... Have you come to your senses and realized there are better designers out there than me?'

"You thought I wouldn't? Do I really seem so dishonest?" He half-joked, shaking his head as he wound the scarf around his neck. "Anytime you like. I've cleared my day for you."

Surprised to find how good the scarf actually looked on such a beautiful neck, she flushed softly. Her eyes moved to his and she couldn't hold back a small smile. "It... Looks really good on you, ahjussi. the color is gorgeous against your skin tone. You should get a suit like this." She grinned, moving to start packing up her things. "Let's just go now. I haven't had anyone in a while."

"You think so? I hope we can find one; I like the style." He brightened at the compliment, surprised to find that it meant more coming from her. Bending to help her pack, he nodded. "All right. I'm still surprised you don't get more foot traffic; hopefully we can fix that."

"i could make--" she cut off, remembering once again that she wasnt really a designer. He could go to someone far more skilled to make that suit... With a flush and a shake od her head, she focused on packing, surprised when he started helping. "It would help if i couke afford to make my actual designs ans try to sell them rather than a bunch of easy scarves and hats but that...thats not really something i can afford right now." Not with her debts...

"What would it take? I'm guessing you'll need a studio, materials, a good sewing machine..." He put the image together in his mind, wondering if any of the buildings he had taken an interest in would have enough room for her to work comfortably. Then, realizing what she had said, he looked over to her in fascination. "You...can make a suit? That has to be really difficult."

"Yeah. A studio, materials, fixin's like zippers, buttons, beads, sketchpads and pencils, a large stock of them, body stands, pins, sewing machine.." she listed off several other things before she shook her head. "I just can't manage it, not now. I probably won't ever be able to and I've resigned myself to that. For now I just hand stitch these.." she gestured to the scarves and the hats in her box before she looked up at the last. "Yeah...I..I can make a suit if I have the supplies. It can be difficult depending on the material used but it wouldn't take too long. A week at most. So I'm sure other designers would be ablet o get it done just as quickly, if not more-so."

"I don't think I'd trust the task to any other designers." He hummed softly, finishing packing the box before pulling a notepad from his pocket and scribbling down the list she had made. After all, she would need that much and more...

"No? You haven't seen their work." She laughed, thanking him as he finished the box. Curious at what he was writing, she gave a soft hum. "I nee dto take this to my car ad then we can go. Should we take one car or should I just follow you?" She glanced up at him again, offering a clearly nervous smile. "We need to get started on you."

"To be fair, I haven't seen the full potential of yours." He pointed out with a grin. "We can take one car, if you want. I had you wasting your gas on me yesterday." He reminded her, slipping the notepad back into his pocket and leaning a little more heavily on his cane.

"Yeah but without the resources they hve, my stuff couldn't compare, trust me." She laughed weakly, shaking her head. "Let's just focus on a design that fits you and then see what we can find that's...close enough." As he leaned onto the cane, she couldn't help but find the movement a little...attractive. What was it about canes...? "I'll take this to my car and then we can go, I guess. Just tell me where you parked and I'll meet you over there when I'm done."

"I found your car, mine's just behind it." He smiled, glad for the opportunity to walk with her. "Any supplies you need, just let me know. I want to know that you can work to the best of your ability."

With a soft laugh and a roll of her eyes, she shook her head. "You wnt to pay my medical expenses and now you want to buy my designing supplies? How about we just focus on getting some sketches done first. We can figure out who'll make them when we get something decided." IT wouldn't be her. She wouldn't let him spend that kind of money on her. Not again.

"How are you feeling, by the way? Is that medicine working for you?" He asked, wishing that he had a little more strength to hold her supplies himself.

"It's working. It's actually helped with the pain very well." She smiled, carrying the box to her car. She froze when her eyes fell on his car. She shouldn't be surprised anymore. She knew the man had money, a lot of it, but seeing the sleek black of the brand new sports car parked behind her rundown pickup was enough to make her feel extremely out of place. Forcing herself to walk again, she made her way to her truck, putting the box in the back before looking up at him. "You don't mind me being in there? I really don't mind following if you'd prefer." She wasn't really a fitting person to be in a car like that.

"I don't mind. I've definitely got the room." He pointed out, not seeing any issue with the difference between his car and hers. "Unless you'd be more comfortable driving?"

Biting her lip at his words, she slowly shook her head, suddenly far more self-consciuos about her car than she had the day before. She looked...terrible, her car looked terrible...how could he possibly think of her as anything more than a roach under her boot...? "I'll...I'll ride with you."

Thinking for a moment on just how different their vehicles looked next to each other, he offered, "I hope...I don't make you feel self-conscious. All of this, what I've got, I...don't really know what to do with it a lot of the time. I'm still getting used to things."

With a darker flush as he mentioned what he had as opposed to what she had, she dropped her gaze. Damn...he could see right through her. She felt so small... "Oh...don't..don't worry about it." She shook her head. "I'm fine, Really, this is all very impressive. It looks great." She smiled, the gesture not quite reaching her eyes. "Let's...let's go somewhere to talk. Whever you like. I've got my sketch book."
