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

"I..I do." She nodded, flushing softly as she looked up at him with a grin, hiding her eyes behind her hair. "I love chess. It's...challenging. I like challenges." She couldn't help but wonder what exactly had brought him to France. With a small smile, she looked back over the railing again. "I can't imagine you losing to anything you want to do..."

"You'll probably beat me, too." He laughed softly, leading her down the elevator to a shelf where he kept the books he read the most often, pulling a box from beneath a stack. The set was one he really liked, with pieces carved from red and white stone. "Which color do you prefer?"

(Down the elevator... XD)

She bit her lip, thinking for a moment before grinning. "...White." Red seemed to suit him better for some reason. Not quiet dark, but not pure, not innocent...despite what that beautiful smile told her. She looked up at him again. "I might beat you..but I doubt it."

((Dammit Woona you're throwing me off with your shit leg XDD))

"White it is." He nodded, leading her to the coffee table and moving to set the board up. "I think I won twice in a year. On accident. With him teaching me as I went." He pointed out, setting each meticulously carved piece in its place.

((XD Dammit Woona )

"I've only played a couple of times. You may have to remind me of the rules as we go." She laughed softly, looking up at him again. As he worked to set the table, she watche dhim closely. The pieces were gorgeous... "...where did you get this? It's a beautiful set."

"It was a gift from that friend. A sort of goodbye present when I decided to move back to the country." He sat back a little, adding, "He and I still talk pretty often...he was the only friend I made while I was there. White moves first, doesn't it?"

(Is it Director Yoon...? XD)

"It's...so pretty." With a small smile, shel ooked up at him, nodding at the lsat. "I believe so. After a moment, she cleared her throat. "So...why did you come back to Korea...? You seem to have liked France a lot."

((Director Yoooooooooon yes it is. XDD))

"It was beautiful, but...there were things here that I missed. And other things that I wanted to get closure with." He ran his teeth over his lip, trying to think of the best way to phrase his thoughts without giving too much away. "And when my aunt died, I had to settle her estate...it was more convenient for me to stay here instead of going back and forth."

(I lub him..)

"Closure?" She was so...unsure about his past. But if she didn't want him asking about her past, she didn't ask about his... As she heard the last, she nodded slowly, looking up at him. "...Do you miss her?"

"Michelle?" He asked, looking up to her and frowning slightly. "I...I have to be cruel for saying this...but not really. She wasn't the warmest of guardians. She left me alone a lot, except to look at my leg, and...I feel like I was a means to an end for her."

(if she sees a picture of Michelle she's going to realize he's the kid she saved/the one that got her medical attention after the incident/getting hit by Michelle's car XD)

"You're not cruel..." She had her own reasons for feeling that way, as well. She knew of one person that was dead that she didn't miss at all. Not after the way he'd beat her, tortured her and her mom...

((Oh dang. I'm sure he has pictures lying around. XD))

"I feel...heartless to think about it." He gave a humorless laugh, shaking his head. "But I just...didn't feel much for her. I think I partially blame her for what happened to my mother."

"For what happened to your mother?" She frowned slightly, eyes on his for a moment before she set in front of him to face the board. "Still...loosing a family member...can't be easy." EVen her father, the murderer, the abuser...it had been difficult to handle, mostly because of funeral costs and preparations, but it hadn't been easy..on her or her mother.

"Maybe not for the reasons I expected." He mumbled without thinking, shaking his head. "But I'm grateful...for what she did for me. I wouldn't be able to walk at all if she didn't care for me when she did."

She nodded, looking up at him. AFter a moment, she managed a small smile, reaching across the table to rest her hand over his gently. "I...have a pretty painful past, too. So...you're not alone in that. And I'll listen if you ever...want to talk about it. All of it, a little of it...anything."

Turning his hand to close his fingers around hers, he gave a gentle smile. "...Thank you, miss Zoey. That means a lot more than you know. If you ever want to talk about anything in your past...I'll do the same for you, I promise."

Seeing the smile, the way he watched her, her heart gave a hardbump and she smiled a bit wider as well. After a moment, realizing what she'd done, she slowly released his hand. "Sorry. I...suppose we should play now, shouldn't we?"

"Don't worry, I'm...pretty easy to distract." He missed the warmth of her hand, laughing softly as he settled into his seat.

With a small smile of her own, she felt some of the shock from the day start to fade. She was calming down...and she was not as afraid, she realized. She felt safe with him. As she saw him settle into his seat, she smiled softly. "White's first, right?'

Nodding with a smile, he brushed his hair out of his eyes. "I'm probably rusty. It might not take much to beat me." He offered after a moment, glad that the day's events had gone so well. He could get used to this far too easily...
