Once used for mining limestone in days long past, it's now a place frequented by Hakyeon's rougher "brothers" for interrogation purposes.

((Ask and ye shall receive. XD))

Taekwoon was starting to lose time again. He hadn't had such a problem in weeks, not since the last incident. But that morning he had woken on the roof in the cold with no recollection of how he had gotten out of bed. He shook his head, ruffling his hair as he set to opening the tailor's shop just downstairs from his apartment. Clearing his drawing table, he pulled a design from the pile and set it near a dummy he had waiting nearby. He had a few days to finish his commission, but he had the feeling that the more he kept busy, the less his problems would have a chance to take hold. He couldn't let this take him over, he thought with a weary sigh. Not again.

NaEun was stressed. Actually...stressed was an understatement. She felt like she might die... Her ex fiance's wedding was in two weeks and she'd wanted to show him exactly what he was missing. She'd intended to show up, looking like a knockout witht he most attractive date in the church. What she'd ended up with was a shitty paycheck enough to barely get some basic makeup and the recommendation from an old friend to come see a tailor about a new dress. Stepping into the shop, hair falling to hide her eyes for a moment, she peeked thorugh the manaquines, at first not noticing the man at the drawing table. "H-hello..?" Her voice was soft, clearly a bit timid.

He heard the door open, caught measuring and cutting a bolt of fabric as he heard the soft greeting. "Back here," He called, voice not quite loud enough to his own ears as he mumbled the number he needed to reach once again, pulling the measure of creamy silk from its place and arranging it on the mannequin, holding it in place with the pins he took from their place between his teeth. His hair fell into his eyes as he worked, but he hardly noticed, wanting to get the positioning just right.

Biting her lip as she heard the man speak, she inwardly cursed. Her friend had known she avoided men like the plague lately. So why wasn't she warned that this tailor was a man...? Stepping more into the room, she wandered through the mannequins, finally making her way back to where the man worked. For a moment his back was to her and he seemed short...maybe it was the way he'd bent over. But his voice didn't seem to fit his physique, she noticed. Hoping he wasn't attractive, hoping she coul dkeep her voice, she took a deep breath. "H-Hello. Are you the...the owner?"

"Yes, that's me." His voice was muffled a little by the pins, quickly setting them into place before consulting his sketch, barely glancing up to see that he wasn't alone. "Jung Taekwoon, it's nice to meet you." Frowning as he realized that his sketch had been wrong in the first place, he gave a soft curse, undoing his work and setting the fabric aside. Straightening, he turned to face her properly, heart stopping for a moment as he saw the beautiful woman that had walked in. She seemed reserved, even a little nervous...but she was nothing short of stunning. Already the gears in his mind were turning, wanting to see her in nothing short of his finest work. "What...what can I do for you?" He asked when his thoughts caught up with the rest of him.

His voice was soft, sweet..like an angel. That was reassuring. Maybe he'd be an angel, after all. Hearing him introduce himself, she watched him move between his work before undoing it with a curse. "It's a really pretty..." she railed off, unsure how to finish the statement. Of course he knew it was a pretty color. He did this for a living...she didn't have to tell him. With a flush of her cheeks, she tucked her bangs behind her ear, nervously toying with her ponytail. "I...Jihye..Kang Jihye told me you were...really good." Biting her lip, she looked up at him, taking a shaky breath. "U-Um... And she said you...you may be willing to loan me something or..or even let me make payments on something if...if it's not too expensive." Good god, her mind froze. She couldn't think of anything. She couldn't breathe, couldn't focus. Gorgeous put it lightly.... Fuck.

Listening to her, he nodded, having to kick his mind back into gear instead of planning out the perfect gown for her. "I--yes, miss Kang has been a good client of mine. What is the occasion?" He offered a small smile. It seemed she was nervous. Had she been to a shop like this before?

She flushed softly. "A wedding..." As the words left her mouth, her fingers brushed the area her engagement ring had once sat. "And i..I don't make much so...I probably shouldn't have even come here.." even his smile was beautiful...

"No, don't worry. I can set up a plan if you want to pay it through. I'd rather you have the perfect dress than all the money in Seoul." He assured her, shaking his head. "A wedding." He watched her fidgeting with her hands, tilting his head. "If I can make an assumption? You'd like to show the groom what he's missing...is that it?"

Surprised at his kindness, she looked up at him, cheeks flushing softly. He'd rather her have the perfect dress? But what was the perfect dress? She hated dresses..they never looked good on her. That was he was recommended. Jihye always said he could turn her into Cinderella... at the last, her heart jumped. Her cheeks burned and she dropped her gaze. "Is it that obvious...?"

"I've been doing this for a while. I can see a broken heart a mile away." He gave a weak smile, shaking his head. "Come over here, we can brainstorm." He gestured for her to move further into the shop, to a sitting area he had set up with a few armchairs and a coffee table. "Would you like some tea?"

"My heart isn't broken. Not...not anymore. I'm just...angry. " Biting her lip at the thought, she shook her head. "It doesn't matter. The point is...I want him to regret everything. All of it..I want him to see me happy and moving on..." But she wasn't happy... as he gestured to the siting area, she followed his instructions, taking a seat and giving a small nod. "Tea would be...great, thank you.."

"Even better. We'll turn you into a knockout." He couldn't hold back a smile at the thought, already spinning ideas around his mind as he moved to a small kitchen in the next room, visible from the chairs. "You're already very pretty. We need something simple but irresistible...amplifying your natural beauty and shape. The best point to make isn't that you're wearing something beautiful, but that you don't need to wear something beautiful to be stunning." He was speaking to himself more than he was to her, unaware that he was sharing his thoughts aloud as he prepared the tea and set the water to boil.

"I..you already have my business. You don't have to lie like that.." Laughing weakly, she felt her cheeks flush. Very pretty? He'd called her very pretty..? Natural beauty? Stunning..? These were things she'd never heard in reference to herseld before. Hoping that whatever he was planning wouldn't take her ten years to pay off, she bit her lip, watching him work. He was gorgeous...but it was even more so when he was focused like this...

"I don't lie. No part of my business is built for it. My job is to make sure you have exactly what you need." He shook his head, taking the kettle from the stove just before it started to screech and pouring water over the leaves in the pot. Setting two cups on a tray with it, he brought the set over to her and set it on the table between them as he took a seat of his own. Taking a notepad and a pencil from the armrest, he laid both in his lap as he looked to her once again. "Let's start with the color. Did you have any ideas?"

Flushing once more, she still watched him. Amazed at how such a good looking, graceful man could possibly make dresses for a living. Maybe he was gay...that would certainly explain some things... "i...I don't actually wear dresses..ever. they don't look good on me, i...I have no clue on what wouldlook even..remotely good.."

"You haven't found the right one." He corrected with a small smile, shaking his head as he sketched out a vague female form, fingers tracing out her body type with ease. "What colors do you usually wear when you're most comfortable? Do you go toward cool colors, warm colors...?" He was unaware of her gaze as he worked, too focused on just how short the skirt needed to be to fit her personality while still making her impossible to look away from.

"You sound like my mother now.." she gave a soft laugh, watching him work curiously. He was actually..very good. And he'd only just started. At the question of colors, she hummed softly. "Either...a dark red, like blood red..or royal blue. Both..both are colors I wear fairly often." She but her lip, watching him work. "I dont..want you thinking I'm some crazy person out to ruin my ex's wedding. It's just..it's..a long story. One I won't bother you with. Just...please believe I'm not a petty person." She wanted to prove him wrong when he'd said she couldn't survive without him. She wanted to show him she was getting along just fine, even better actually. She didn't need his abuse...she'd moved on... her finger brushed the space her engagement ring once sat again and she shook her head. "I..I never told you my name. Forgive me. I'm Kim NaEun."

"I can tell that whatever you're doing...you must have good reason for. Your friend has told me a little about you." He pointed out, glancing up to her with soft brown eyes. "You can tell me if you want. It might help me get a good theme for what you're wanting to say to him. But if it's too personal I know we'll put the best design together." He scribbled down a few notes on color as he spoke, offering a small smile at the last. "It's nice to meet you, miss Kim."
