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

She laughed weakly. "I can't imagine you ever being in the same situation. You're gorgeo--" seh cut off, cheeks burning at the words that came out of her mouth. Her gaze dropped to the ground at about the time he knelt down to take her measurement, accidentally making her gaze linger on him anyway.

"I'm--I'm what?" He asked, feeling his face burn as he heard the near-compliment. Looking up to her, he gave a small smile, shaking his head. "That I'm not sure of. But thank you..."

"I just...I didn't mean...I--" she cut off, cheeks brning even darker s she dropped her gaze. "Never...nevermind." She shook her head, biting her lip as she avoided his gaze once more. "I just mean...you don't seem the tpe to let yourself get into..into that kind of situation. You...I think you have a side of you..that you don't let people see very often. A side...that's more hidden...unless someone gets past your walls."

He froze for a moment, thinking of the blackouts, the incidents he'd had to deal with before he shook off the worry, smiling once again. "Doesn't everyone?" He said at last, standing and draping the measuring tape around his neck once again. "Come on, I think I have just the thing." He said after a moment, leading the way to a dressing room in the corner.

"I suppose. You just seem...different." She flushed, shaking her head "I sound crazy. I"m sorry. Forget I said anything." Watching the way he moved, the way he draped the mesasuring tape around his neck, her cheeks flushed. God, he really looked good. Espeically when he was so focused on his work. As he spoke again, she looked up athim, nodding and following his instruction to step into the room.

"No, you're making perfect sense, I promise." He shook his head, hair falling into his eyes as he moved to a rack nearby, muttering measurements aloud to himself as he pulled a navy gown from the rack. It would fall just below her knees, he thought, an appropriate length for what she was looking for. "This is close to the same shape as the one I had in mind. The fit won't be perfect because it isn't tailored exactly to you, but it should fit pretty well. Enough for you to see how you'll look." He offered, passing her the dress with a small smile.

She took the dress with a soft thanks, stepping into the room and shutting the door. As she slipped out of her baggy clothes, she called softly, asking if he was wanting to see as well to be sure the cut would look okay... Even as she spoke, she felt uncomfortable, sliding the dress on. Zippign it up with too much difficulty, she looked into the mirror. HEr cheeks burned, taking in her image. The dress looked fairly decent on her. But her hair was a mess in the ponytail. She wore no makeup and she looked very obviously tired... Deciding to fix one of these, she reached up, pulling her hair down and letting loose curls fall around her shoulders. She shifted in front of ht emirror for a moment before slowly opening the door and stepping out to allow the man to see as well. The dress...did'nt look half bad.

"I'd like to see, if you don't mind. I can get ideas for how to alter your dress by seeing the fit." He replied, taking a seat in one of the chairs provided for the family of his clients--mostly brides-to-be. Hearing her shift inside for a few minutes, he found himself speechless as the door opened, attempting to speak and finding that no words came freely to mind. "You're...beautiful." He breathed without thinking, shaking his head to gather his thoughts. "I-I mean...wow. I knew you'd look great, but...wow." Standing, he remembered just what he was there for, thinking to ask, "How does it feel? Does anything need to be changed?"

As she saw him stare, she suddenly felt exposed, on display. Did he not like it? Was she wearing it wrong? Did she tear it? Her cheeks flushed as she stood a little awkwardly and watched him climb to his feet. Beautiful..? At his words her ccheeks flushed even darker and she looked up at him, biting her lip before dropping her gaze, trying to ignore the way her face heated. "it...It feels okay, i guess. Like..like a dress. Um..the skirt..maybe not have it flare so much? I like...I like the pencil skirts, the skinnier..more sleek..." She flushed darker. " But..you know better than I do. Whatever you think would work best for me is fine. I can't really complain. I don't know what I'm wanting.

"I agree. You have very nice legs, and a more form-fitting skirt will show them off much better." He took down a few notes, walking around her in a slow circle to note the fit. "And do you prefer sleeves, straps, nothing at all?"

Cheeks flushing at the mention of her legs, she looked down, fingers brushing the waistline of the dress bedore she looked up at him again. "I..I dont know. You pick..?" Was he a vulture in a past life..?

"Well, whatever makes you the most comfortable. I'll see what I can do once I'm putting the dress together. Thin straps...or sleeveless. You have nice shoulders, too..." He reached out without thinking, smoothing a part of the dress in the back that had folded over while she attempted to zip it, adjusting the zipper as well.

SHe froze as she felt his hand, felt his touch on her back. She flushed softly, biting her lip. "I have nice shoulders..?" And nice legs...she felt like she was on display. "You..really think the dress looks..okay on me?"

"It looks great. Honestly, you could wear this and be a knockout...but I know I can do better. You'll make him regret ever speaking against you." He stopped in front of her with a reassuring smile. "And you're sure you don't have any color preferences?"

She bit her lip. "I guess...r-royal blue?" She flushed softly, knowing the blue and the maroons always looked decent on her. And she was certain the blue would look good on him, as well. He was her date, after all. "You think I can be a knockout? Really? I mean...You're not just saying that because.." Because why? What would be the benefit? He already had her business.

"That color would be stunning." He nodded, smile widening at the thought. He had a shirt that would go well, but he would need to adjust one of his suits to match. It was becoming too tight in the shoulders. "I'm saying it because it's the truth. I have no doubt that you'll be the most beautiful person there."

(Too tight in the shoulders.. -.- You're killing me. I love my Leo!)

Looking up at him at his words, she found her cheeks didn't flush for the first time. Most beautiful..? For some reason...she believed him. He meant those words... he really found her beautiful. Her heart jumped and she gave a small smile, the look nearly reaching her eyes. "I...am excited to see what you create, ahjussi." She looked down again, shiftin ga little from nerves. "I think..the color would look good on you, too. It's..partially why I picked it, I'll be honest." After anonther moment, she bit her lip. "I don't care about being the most beautiful. I just want to show him taht I...can do just fine without him."

((You're welcome. XD))

"It's one of my favorites." He nodded with a widening smile. "We'll manage that and more. Even if he doesn't apologize for the pain he's caused you, he'll regret it."

She couldn't hold back a smile, her first smile she'd shown him, she realized. HEr cheeks flushed softly and she gave a small smile. "I'd like to make him regret it." After a moment,s he cleared her throat. "So...what should we tell him about you?"

"Say that we've been dating since shortly after you broke up. We could have met through work. What is it that you do?" He asked, finding his own smile brightening at the sight of hers. If he could do what he could to make sure it stayed around, he thought, he would do a good job.
