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

"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."

Looking up at him in surprise, she bit her lip. So...He'd been through a bad breakup, too? With a small frown, she brushedher hair from her face. "I'm sorry. I shouldn't ask about your..your personal life." Especially knowing how toxic a relationship could be...

"No, it's been...almost a year now. I'm not hurt over it anymore." He shook his head quickly, smiling weakly. "It's just...habit now to be alone, I guess."

She bit her lip, nodding slowly before looking up st him. "If...if you want...I could be your friend. I mean, I have my own trauma to work through and I can hardly talk to you..but we could maybe help each other... not just...just for the wedding..." she bit her lip. "I think...maybe not being alone might do us both some good..."

"I like that idea." He gave a softer smile, feeling something stirring in the back of his mind, warning of pain, of heartbreak...of messes that it had needed to get him out of. Pushing it aside, he nodded. "I...would really like that."

"You would?" She looked up at him in shock, cheeks flushing. "I mean...I'm...I'm glad you woild. I just..didn't expect you to agree, Ahjussi..." she laughed nervously, shaking her head.

(I love the split personalities so much XD)

((I'm really excited to play this up. XD))

"I think you're a nice, kind woman in need of a good friend. I hope...that I can be something like that for you. I don't...make friends easily or often." He admitted with a weak laugh, standing and pulling the measuring tape from his neck to lay it on the table. "That sounds strange, doesn't it?"

She shook her head, watching him move. "Not at all. You..you seem like a good man, someone with a pure heart." She flshed, fingers moving to toy nervously with her hair. "But you seem a little shy...like me."

"Maybe that means we were meant to meet." He chuckled softly. "Between our shyness...maybe we can find some kind of confidence. Shall we?" He gestured toward the door, brushing his hair from his eyes once again.

"Maybe. Maybe we were meant to elp each other out. To become more... I don't know..." She laughed, nodding. As he gestured toward the door, she stood, nodding once more and moving toward the door. "You lead the way. I have no clue where I am."

"I think I understand." He nodded, moving to flip the sign on the door to reflect that he was closing the shop, holding it open for her with a smile. "Have you been on this side of the city before?"

Taekwoon had prepared for the wedding without a worry in his mind. Naeun had been proving to be a good friend and more, awakening an interest that ran deeper than simply pretending to be her boyfriend for an event that would save her self-esteem once and for all. He had adjusted a favorite black suit, pairing a royal blue shirt with that matched her dress perfectly, forgoing a tie and choosing a set of suspenders for that old-fashioned flair. He had even styled his hair out of his face, almost not recognizing his reflection in the mirror. He looked confident...professional. Perfect for what he was wanting. It wasn't until the drive to the venue where he would be meeting his friend that the headache started, throbbing deep between his temples and nearly threatening to cause him to pull over. The voice he had been ignoring was louder than ever now, insisting that there was a problem that needed to be fixed. After a struggle, he felt the darkness take over his mind, swerving slightly before something else regained control. The man that pulled into the church's parking lot and stood in the corner where Taekwoon had arranged to meet his date carried himself with confidence that the original could never possess, colder eyes moving over the sea of unfamiliar faces as they chattered amongst themselves on their way inside. This needed to be nipped in the bud, the newly-freed Leo thought. And if he had to do it himself, so be it. There would never be a repeat of what had caused his first appearance.

As the car pulled up to the venue, she thanked the driver, slipping him his money before climbing out and straightening her dress. With her back to her date, hair pinned out of her face but still down enough to frame her body, she brushed the hem of her dress into place before shifting in the heels she'd borrowed, glancing around her, searching for her date. He wasn't exactly where they'd agreed to meet...maybe he was standing her p after all... Her stomach sank at the thought, wondering if maybe she'd imagined how friendly he'd been. If it had all been in her mind. Maybe she'd bothered him, maybe he hadn't wanted her to be a friend at all... The thought burned...she felt her fingers turn ice cold and she contemplated getting back in the taxi and leaving. Deciding that was exactly what she would do, she turned back toward the car, eyes just happening to scan an area near the church, a corner, her eyes fell on him. At first she didn't recognize him...and as she looked closer, seh felt her heart give a hard bump. That...wasn't Taekwoon. That couldn't be. Still...despite those thoughts, she shut the taxi door, slowly stepping closer to the man, approaching him with widened eyes.

Realizing with an internal curse that he hadn't pushed hard enough to see just who the hell it was he was looking for, he nearly missed the girl that approached him, only recognizing the dress that she wore from the progress he had seen glimpses of during his nighttime walks while Taekwoon was sleeping. This had to be Naeun. He found that she really was stunning, tilting his head as he moved to approach her, putting on a sweet smile that he had perfected over his time riding backseat to his nicer half. "You look...incredible." He said at last, knowing that much to be the truth. It was what had gotten her past the walls he'd put around his shared heart, after all. "I hope you weren't waiting long...I missed my exit and had to double back."

Flushing at the attentoin, the blatant compliment he gave her. Definitely not Taekwoon. Taekwoon would have been embarrassed, too embarrassed to compliment her like that. Her cheeks flushed even darker as she gave a small bow. "And you look a-amazing. I had no idea you could look like a...a superstar. But...for me looking incredible...It's thanks to you, ahjuss-" She cut off, remembering that they were supposed to be a couple, she cleared her throat. "T..Taekwoon-ah." Straightening again, she looked up at him, eyes meeting his. They seemed...distant. Cold...different. Had she done something to upset him? "I'm...I just arrivved, I didn't wait at all. Is...Is something wrong? Are you having second thoughts? You don't have to go in there with me if you don't want to. I mean...I can handle this myself, I"m sure." Despite her words, the worry, the fear was clear in her eyes.

"No, I just...didn't sleep well last night. Too excited, I guess." He shook his head, ducking his head under her attention as he knew his nicer half would do. "A...a superstar? I'm not...I mean, thank you, Naeun. But everyone here, including me...just pales in comparison to you." He had been sharing space with Taekwoon for long enough that he knew every little mannerism he had, but he hadn't done much by way of practice. It was easy to mimic, but he would need to work on making it natural. Hopefully she was too nervous to take much notice until he got into the swing of things.

'Excited?" She looked up at him in surprise, wondering if he'd looked forward to the day she'd dreaded. If so...why? As he continued to speak, mentioning how she was outshining everyone else, her cheeks flushed again and she gave a small smile. "I feel like you're saying that to embarrass me. I'm nervous enough as it is...embarrassment, I think, won't be an issue today." That being said, she took a deep breath, reaching out to take his hand, a movement she'd never done wit her ex, a movement she'd never done with anyone. Lacing her fingers through his, she turned her attention to a couple passing by and gave a small bow and greeting. She'd meant to explain things, tell him who was who before tehy began acting and she oped he'd understand that the people that passed by were crucial in their act... She hoped he wouldn't pull away.

Taking the movement in stride after a moment's shock, he let his fingers curl around hers, marveling for a second at how much smaller her hand was in comparison to his. Taking her example and bowing as she did with a polite smile, he simply watched the faces pass, wondering just which out of this group was the worm that had brought him into this mess in the first place. He never broke a promise, not even one of Taekwoon's, he knew. He would play his part for the day, and see what could be done about putting things right afterward.
