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 nodded slowly, flushing as she looked at the ground once more. After a moment, she glanced up at him again. "Three years..will be fine. I'm just..not sure how good I'll be at acting like we've been seeing each other for long. Not..being thrown into this." Maybe if she had a little practice, time to get to know him a little. At the mention of piano, her embarrassment seemed to ease and she straightened. "You play?" Hearing his story, she nodded slowly. "...I..I mean it's a little cheesy...but I guess that could work. But..if we're going to pretend you've known me for a while..he'll likely bring up my weight." She flushed once again, ducking her head, hair falling to hide her eyes. "I've lost..quite a bit of wait...since we split."

"Just follow my lead. I've only been in one long-term relationship before, but I think I remember how it goes." At the mention of her weight, he frowned slightly. "Anyone that criticizes something like that doesn't really love you. I'm sure you were beautiful then, too." Shaking his head, he added, "I used to play a lot more...during the off season, I compose a little, but no one's heard it."

(Okay...i'm not even sure how 'wait' managed to get there. You know what I meant. XD)

Hearing him say she was beautiful then, too, her heart jumped. She flushed even darker and her eyes remained on the ground. If he knew what she'd looked like before he wouldn't say such things... "Still..going into this with no background whatsoever..." She bit her lip, thinking for a moment before smiling weakly. "Maybe..we should talk a little? Get...get to know each other a little bit. Not much, I mean it's not a real date or anything so there's no need to get too...too close. But maybe we'll be more..comfortable with each other if we talk a bit more..."

((Yeah, I got it. XD I just figured that shenanigans happened. XD))

"That's a good idea." He nodded, brushing his hair from his eyes again with a small smile. "You can...change back, if you want. I think I have all the information I need. At least until I get the rough draft down for the dress..."

Deciding that if she was going to act like his girlfriend she might as well start tryying to get more comfortable with him, she tucked her hair behind her ear, giving a small smile, biting her lip. "Already tired of seeing me in a dress, huh?" With a soft laugh, she nodded, giving a small bow. "I'll change, then."

"N-no, that's not it, I just--" He felt his face heat at the teasing, shaking his head as his fingers toyed with the tape around his neck. "I-I mean, if you'd like to keep it on, that's up to you, I just assumed..." As he spoke, his flush darkened, ducking his head as he realized that she was likely only teasing him and he was getting worked up over nothing.

With a soft laugh, surprised the sound left her at all, she shook her head. "It's alright. I was only teasing you.." she looked up at him again. "I'll change, it's alright. Honestly I'm not sure I like this one feels. I imagine the fabric and the fit will make it more comfortable..besides, I'm sure there's a lovely lady out there that doesn't want me in her dress." She smiled weakly, stepping back into the room before realizing that his shift of the zipper made it almost impossible to reach for her. After the third attempt, she felt her cheeks burn. "U-Um...A-ahjussi..?"

Nodding with a weak laugh, he glanced up to see her struggling with her zipper. "Oh. I'm sorry." He said quickly, pulling the zipper down for her. "Don't worry about that, by the way. This is one of the displays I put together...I keep them around for reference and in case someone has an event and can't wait for a custom design."

Flushing as she felt his fingers pull the zipper, she'd intended to ask him to only unzip it a little, she could get it the rest of the way, but what he'd done..her cheeks burned even brighter. "Th..thank you, ahjussi." It was a display...She nodded, stepping back into the room and shutting the door. Changing quickly, she brought the dress back out and returned to her seat, a million thoughts racing through her mind. "..I..had...I had a thought..."

"A thought?" He took care to hang the dress back on the rack in order of size and style, returning to his seat with notepad in hand. Taking a sip of the tea that had been sitting out enough to cool, he looked to her curiously. "What's on your mind?"

"Dinner. Or...or lunch. I mean..we can take care of our own bills, it' s not like a real date..but it would give us a chance to...to talk some, to get to know each other a little before..before our act. If...if you would't mind." She couldn't meet his gaze. Why was she so damn nervous to say such things? It wasn't like she was asking for a date. She couldn't ask for a dte even if she wanted to. He was so out of her league.

"That sounds like a great idea." He nodded, wondering for a moment just how long it had been since he had been outside of the shop to spend time with anyone. "Whatever time is most convenient for you. I...don't really do much outside of work." Then, after a moment, he realized that he had agreed to this act without knowing one crucial piece of information. "When is this wedding, by the way?"

"I'd hate to get in the way of your work, though. I don't want to take you away from a project. I mean..I'd hate for you to miss a deadline because of me." She laughed weakly, fingers toying with her hair as it still hung loosely around her shoulders. AFter a moment, seh looked up at him. "In a month and a half. Plenty of time to get to know 3 years worth of each other, right?"

"You're the only commission I have on the board. And learning more about you will help me fine-tune the design...make it perfect for you." He shook his head with a smile. At the last, he nodded with a thoughtful hum. "Plenty of time. They'll never know what hit them when we're done."

She flushed softly at his words, nodding as she shifted in the chair. After a moent she glanced at the clock on the wall behind him and hummed softly. "The...should we order delivery? Go somewhere? Do you...do you want to get lunch now? Since we're already together?"

"I think it will be good to get out of the shop for a while." He hadn't done anything like that for fun in longer than he cared to remember, brushing his hair from his eyes once again. "Where would you like to go?"

Hearing the question, she flushed, giving a small shrug. "I..have no clue. I don't usually..eat out." Laughing softly, she looked up at him. "What's good around here? I don't..want to take you too far away from your work." How had she managed to come looking for a cheap dress, even just one to rent...and end up leaving with a not-date?

"I order noodles from a place down the block that's pretty good." He offered, laughing softly as he realized just how the statement might make him sound. "I, uh...haven't gotten out much lately."

"Are you a bit of a hermit? You don't like people? " She smiled weakly, shaking her head. "You don't go on dates or anything...? I find that hard to belive..."

"I, uh..." His flush darkened as he rubbed the back of his neck. "I went through a pretty bad breakup a while ago. I've been working a lot since then. You'd be surprised to know, but...I'm not that great with people."
