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

Biting her lip, she nodded at the statement of going with her before clearing her throat. "Thank you..ahjussi." that meant she'd have to call him by name st the wedding. Act natural with him, try to be normal. Could she manage it? At the mention of no bows and no frills, she looked up at him again. "I'm not?" The curiosity was killing her. She wanted desperately to see what he was drawing, what he thought of her.."Natural? What should feel natural?"

"No, you need something a little more classic...class rather than flash." He was lost to his musing once again, finishing a few details before turning the clipboard around to allow her to see. What was there was a very classy design, the cut meant to flatter her natural curves while not revealing too much. "I've got several fabrics that will work for this...we can look them over when the design is finished. What do you think so far?"

Eyes scanning the image, she couldn't hide the uncertainty in her gaze. She knew dresses didn't look good on her.and she hated the idea of wearing one of his masterpieces just to make it look bad... biting her lip, she wondered if it would be impolite to take it back, to just go to target and find something cheap, something she wouldn't ruin... "its pretty...are you sure..th - that you want to..to put me in it?"

"...You don't like it." He studied her face, frowning slightly. He was so sure he had read her tastes correctly, he thought. Had he misread her? "What parts would you change?"

She shook her head quickly, looking up at him. Her eyes met his, cheeks flushing. "N-No! No, it's gorgeous. I just...I can't...I dold you, I don't look good in dresses. I"d hate to put on something so pretty that you worked so hard on and...make it look bad." Her cheeks darkened and she took a deep breath. "I like it..a lot. I just don't want to ruin it."

"How would you ruin it? It's made just for you...to enhance what you already have. There's no ruining anything." He assured her, shaking his head as he brushed his hair from his eyes. "Do yourself a favor...whenever you think things like that, ask yourself if that's your voice...or his. If it's not yours, ignore it. It isn't what your heart should be listening to."

"It's just...things that are form fitting.." She glanced down at her oversized, baggy clothes. Since she'd lost the weight she hadn't really had time or money much to update her wardrobe. She made due with what hse had..which made her still seem larger.. "I don't usually wear things like that because..." Screams of calling her fat, of calling her disgusting shot through her mind and she bit her lip. "I just don't." At the last, she looked up at him again, surprised by his words. After a long moment, she spoke, voice soft. "Honestly...I don't know who's voice it is anymore. It all..sounds the same."

"Well, listen to me, all right? You're beautiful. You don't need anything or anyone to try to convince you otherwise. If it would help, I can take your measurements and have you try on one of the displays to show it to you." He offered, wondering if perhaps seeing herself in one of the dresses she so often avoided might convince her that this was a good idea.

She looked up at him in surprise at his words. Fighting to find her voice again, she slowly nodded. "Maybe...maybe that would help. If...if you really don't mind.." that was the third time he'd called her beautiful...was it possible he meant it..? Even looking likea slob as she did now, hair a mess ina ponytail, no makeup, far too baggy clothes.

"I don't mind at all." He gave her a small smile, gesturing for her to stand as he pulled a measuring tape from where it hung around his neck. "Once you see, I'm sure you won't doubt yourself as much as you do."

Climbing to her feet, she felt her cheeks flush, eyes moving to him as he shifted, clearly very comfortable in his work. After a moment, she waited until he was focused on measuring her rather than her face and she muttered a soft apology. "I...didn't assume you were gay. Not...not exactly anyway. Jihye...told me you were. O-or I never would have come here..."

"She might have thought that I was." He chuckled, shaking his head as he bid that she lift her arms to get the bust measurement. Apologizing softly for the discomfort she might be feeling, he scribbled down each number next to his sketch as he worked. "Are you embarrassed to talk to men?" The question was thoughtless, absent as he focused on his task.

At the question, her cheeks burned again. If she told him yes he'd wonder why it mattered if he was gay or not. If she told him men made her nervous, leery, she'd look sexist.. if she told him only attractive men were difficult to talk to, he'd know she found him attractiv3. After a long moment, she nodded slowly. "...y-yes."

"Well, with your experiences with the last one I can see at least partially why." He replied with a soft sigh, shaking his head. "I hope I'm not making you uncomfortable by not being gay." He added, sure that this was the strangest phrase he'd managed to say all month.

She shook her head, eyws low as she bit her lip again. "No. No, you shouldn't be...sorry for something so...unimportant. I mean...you're not hitting on me.or anything."he wasn't attracted to her. "So there's no reason to...to be nervous, right?"

"For what it's worth...if it weren't for my job, I wouldn't be able to talk to you." He felt his face heat at the admission, taking her waist and hip measurements next. "I...I'm not good at talking to anyone. Especially women. Especially women that I think are pretty."

"You don't seem the shy type. I doubt you wouldn't be able to--" she cut off as the last reached her and her cheeks flushed darker. Looking up at him, she gave a small, weak smile. "You...really think I'm pretty..?" It really wasn't just for business...? As hus fingers brushed her waist, her cheeks flushed softly.

"I've been telling you that since you came in." He nodded, flush darkening as he turned to record her measurements once again. "My job is to get you to see it."

"Your job is to make clothes. Not...not be a counselor or fake date.." she flushed, gaze dropping as she bit her lip. After a moment, she spoke again, voice soft, hardly over a whisper. "You know...I can't pay you, don't you? To...to go with me..to thus wedding."

"I'm not doing it for the money." He shook his head with a small smile, kneeling before her to take the measurement between her waist and the floor. "I'm doing it because...it's the right thing to do. You need the help, I already don't like this man...and I hope that someone would do the same for me, if I were in the same position."
