The Riverwalk
NoWealthNoRuin HK's Territory
A peaceful strip of small shops and restaurants overlooking the banks of the river that marks the unspoken boundary between the two territories.

"Just...um...it's..." She shook her head, clearing her throat for a moment as she realized that there was likely no getting out of admitting what she had been thinking about without him pulling another stunt to freak her out. "It's...really stupid, honestly." She said at last, addressing the dashboard in favor of saving a little of her dignity.

He raised a brow. "If you don'twant to tell me, I won't stress it. But...I doubt anything that could make your heart beat the way it is now..is stupid." He squeezed her fingers gently. "As long as you're alright...you don't have to tell me anything."

Giving his hand a squeeze in return, she figured that after the embarrassment he had put himself through just to avoid talking to her for so long, maybe it was fair to even the playing field for him. "You...you have to promise not to laugh, okay?" She said at last, giving a nervous laugh. "It's just...well, when you kissed my hand, I...I thought about what it might be like to really kiss you." The last was said in a rush, wanting to get the words out before she could backtrack and deny everything. She was sure that she had invented a new shade of red in the meantime, face burning brighter than it had before.

His fingers tightened on her hand, unable to hold backa smile, though his own cheeks burned brighter with her words. She wondered what it would be like to kiss him? Didn't she realize that's exactly what he'd been forcing himself not to do for an hour? He hadn't wanted to move too quickly for her. "When we danced...we practically kissed then, remember? " his lips had grazed hers lightly as he'd struggled to find his breath again. It wants full kiss, in his opinion, but it was definitely there...

"We did...but that was an accident." She nodded, unable to look over to him as she felt his hand tighten on hers. "I was thinking...something more deliberate." Then, realizing that she was talking too much, she added with a nervous laugh, "I told you it was pretty stupid, right?" After all, they had only agreed to a trial period an hour before.

"It's not stupid. I've literally dreamed of losing you fora very long time..." After a moment, he grinned. "Since the first wasn't his enough for you and all..I didn't realize you required something deliberate.."

"I know, it's pretty dumb--" She broke off in her deflection, surprised that he had accepted her words rather than teasing or thinking that she was going too quickly. "Wait...literally dreaming? Have I shown up in your dreams before?" She asked, wondering if he was being facetious.

Flushing at her question, he gave a smooth shrug, passing another car as he hummed softly. "I've...had a few that feature you. Most...most of them, honestly. Especially since that dance. They...are innocent, most of the time. You don't have to worry about anything like that, but...yeah. I've dreamed of you multiple times. Holding you in my arms, kissing you, just...resting with you there..."

Listening, she felt a smile pull at her lips before she gave his fingers a squeeze. "That sounds...pretty familiar, actually. It sounds like you and I have been having the same dreams lately. I'm not worried at all...that sounds pretty nice."

He flushed. "I mean, don't get me wrong, I've had a few other dreams that I can't really repeat, but--" he cut off, cheeks burning even darker. Why the hell was he admitting that now...? Why did he admit it at all? She said she wasn't worried. That wasn't a green light to tell her all the dirty thoughts he'd had about her.

Sure that her face was burning even brighter than she had known before, she felt her pulse jump once again. "R-really? About me?" She asked before she could stop herself, clearing her throat to keep her thoughts on the more innocent side of the conversation. "We...really are in the same boat, then. Some of the dreams I've had since that dance were...well...vivid."

"I hope you don't mind. I...I've tried to keep things innocent but sometimes--" he cut off, hearing the last, feeling his cheeks burn. As he turnd his attention to her, his fingers tightened around hers. "It's all because of the dance, then?"

"The thoughts were there before the dance." She replied without thinking, cursing softly as she realized her mouth had run without her again. "I--I mean...well, the dance just...made it impossible for me to ignore them anymore."

He couldn't hold backa small smile, fingers brushing the steering wheel nervously. "So...you've had less than innocent thoughts about me pretty often, huh?" He chuckled softly.

"Pretty often is...that makes it sound even worse." She shook her head with a nervous laugh. "It's been a few times. But most of the dreams I've had were more innocent than that."

"So not often? Am I just not attractive enough?" He grinned, bringing her fingers to his lips once more as he hummed softly. "You're fun to tease, you know..."

"You know that's not it--" She broke off as she heard the last, giving a frustrated groan that was at least half joking. Nudging him with her elbow as her hand remained comfortably in his, she added, "You're a pain, you know..."

He laughed softly at her words, nodding and returning the nudge before looking up at her with a smile. "You like me being a pain, though. If I wasn't you'd know something is wrong."

"You have a point. Even if it's an annoying one." She teased, giving her fingers a squeeze. "You're lucky you're so damn cute."

He frowned at the words, humming softly. "Should I not be apain, then? Should i be quieter?" As he felt her squeeze, heard the last, he gave a weak laugh. His eyes moved to hers and he smiled softly. "I'm cute?"
