((Oh this can only end well. XDD))

He hadn't had a drink with anyone else in longer than he cared to remember, he thought, fingers moving to pick the shot from his desk. "I shouldn't do this during work hours..." He commented, raising an eyebrow before he realized that she had a point. Wanting to think of anything but his father's words, he brought the glass to his lips, downing the shot without issue.

"You literally love at work. Who cares when you actually do the work as long as its done on time?" She grinned, taking her own shot before filing their glasses again. "Let's sit on the couch." She grinned, moving to his side and gripping his sleeve gently, giving him plenty of room to pull free if he was afraid.

Deciding that maybe another break might be a good idea, he stood, a small smile on his lips. "We just got started and it's breaktime already?"

"You're the one that wanted to talk about family." She laughed softly, pulling him to the couch and sitting, pulling him down beside her before realizing aside from when her hip had brushed his when she cleaned, this was thr closest they'd ever been. Her cheeks flushed softly. "And I got a whole three pages done, thank you very much
"

"That's pretty impressive." He nodded, taking a seat and setting his empty glass on the table. "You didn't need to ask for help?"

"Why would I need to ask for help? I had a great trainer." She smiled, pouring a second glass for him and a second for herself, offering him thr first. "Cheers?"

"Cheers." He couldn't hold back a smile, taking the glass and tapping it against hers before drinking it as quickly as the first. "Is this how you usually deal with family problems?" he asked after a moment, feeling the pleasant burn loosen his throat a little.

AT the question, she raised a brow. She smiled, fingers brushing her glass before looking up at him again. "This is how I usually deal with all of my problems, Hwanki-si." She'd never called him by his first name, she realized, cheeks flushing softly. Downing her own drink, she looked up at him. "Look at that..you're already getting more relaxed."

"There are worse ways, I guess..." He rolled the glass between his fingers absently, feeling a small smile pull at his lips as she called him by name. "I haven't had enough time to relax and have a drink in a long time..."

"Would you like a third?" She grinned, offering him the bottle as her eyes moved to his window. A look of wonder passed over her face and she smiled. "Can I...I mean...do you mind if I go look?"

Taking the bottle with a thanks, he filled both of their glasses before he saw her gaze shift. "Go ahead. It's a great view of the city..."

Smiling brightly at the words, she took her glass from him with a soft thanks, her fingers brushing his as she moved to stand by the window, eyes brightening as she looked out over Seoul. It was huge...the city was busy, life passing by without a care in the world...the sun was starting to set and it was beautiful. She gasped softly. "I"ve...never seen...the sunset like this before.."

"It's...pretty great." He stood to follow after her, glass in hand as he watched the sun shining on the streets and windows below, slowly fading from orange to red. It was a sight he had seen and appreciated more afternoons than he could count, but he felt as if he were seeing it for the first time. Maybe it was her wonder, the excitement he could feel in her voice and the way she stood. Something brighter to make this view something new to be appreciated. "This is my favorite view of the city..."

She bit her lip, looking out at the city, watching as one by one the lights brightened. Feeling him approach, she turned back around to look up at him. Witht he sun setting behind her, she looked up at her new friend, surprised to see how close he'd come to stand behind her and her cheeks flusehd softly. She offered a small smile, looking up at him. "Hwanki-si...I don't think I"ve ever seen you look so relaxed..." He looked stunning with the sunlight...

Seeing the sunlight shining behind her like a halo, he felt his heart skip a beat, flushing softly as a smile pulled at his own lips. "I've...never really felt this relaxed. Not around anyone that wasn't family." And even then, his father despised him, his mother loved him but never really made him feel like he wasn't a disappointment for being more normal...his sister was a great help, but her life kept her on a different schedule.

Still looking up at him, holding his gaze, she smiled softly. They'd been growing closer, talking more...but there was something in that moment that made her feel..connected to him. She felt...like she knew him almost better than she knew herself. Deciding to take whatever electricity, whatever sign this was as a green light, she slowly took a step closer to him. "I'm glad..you feel like you can be relaxed with me." Before she could stop herself, she reached up, fingers brushing his hood. Not giving him a chance to tell her to stop, she bit her lip, lifting the hood off of his head and pulling it back down, though her hands didn't move from the hood, fingers tangled in the cloth of his hood, bringing them much closer than she could ever remember being with him.

Surprised as she moved closer, he felt her move the fabric of his hood, feeling his heart skip a beat as he stood before her, more exposed than he had been since she stumbled across him in nothing more than a towel. Face flushing as she pulled him closer, he wondered what she was about to do as his hands came to rest on her hips without thinking.

Biting her lip as she felt his hands on her hips, she shifted just a little closer. For a wild mometn, she felt the desire to pull him close, to close the distance between them. She wanted to kiss him...and she nearly did, leaning up closer to him. One hand moved up to the back of his neck, brushing the hair at the nape of his neck as she found herself much closer to him than she'd ever been before. At least until a knock at the door made her jump, causing her to freeze for only a momen before she pulled back, cheeks burning. She uttered a soft apology, head ducked as she rushed away from him and toward the door. She'd never looked embarrassed before, not with him. She couldn't think, couldn't breathe. She'd nearly kissed her boss...her boss that was too shy for this shit. She had nearly ruined her entire career, friendship, and this poor man's state of mind. Maybe they should stop drinking... She opened the door to find one of her coworkers who offered her a file and held a small conversation before leaving her alone with her friend once more. "I..hve the file for my project now. I sould...probably start working onit."

He found that his heart had to have stopped as she moved closer, leaning in as he felt the desire to be closer, to do whatever he could to keep the distance between them at a minimum. He had been aware of a growing attraction he felt for her for the last few weeks, growing ever stronger with every day she spent with him. Clearing his throat as she moved to the door to get the file, he ran his fingers through his hair, surprised to find he felt no desire to pull his hood back up. "Why not finish the bottle first?" He offered, gesturing to the half-full soju bottle sitting on the table. "It...would be a waste."

Cheeks still burning, she turned back to look up at him. When her eyes moved to his, hearing him suggest another drink, she couldnt' help but wonder if more drinks were sucha good idea. When she looked at him, she noticed his hood was still down, the sun still setting behind him. Her heart jumped and she resisted the urge to come back to him, to finish what she'd started... God, she wanted to kiss him. She had for weeks... She took a shaky breath. "I"m not..so sure I should keep drinking on the job. I mean...the boss might find out." She gave a weak laugh, slowly moving back o the window to take her glass from his desk. She could feel his heat just a foot away. "...you're keeping your hood down? You don't feel...exposed? Afraid?"
