"No, not at all." She shook her head, surprised to find that it didn't bother her in the least. Realizing that she had gotten into his space, she let her hand fall away, feeling her face heat. "Um...Sorry."

He felt his own cheek sheat lightly as he watched the woman move, taking a deep breath and clearing his throat before he shook his head. "Don't...don't apologize. You did nothing wrong."

"You seem uncomfortable." She pointed out with a weak chuckle. "Do you need another subject change?"

"Im not uncomfortable." He shook his head, giving a soft laugh. "I'm....surprised, that's all."

"Surprised? Why?" She asked, raising an eyebrow at his response. He was laughing, she noted, relaxing with a smile of her own. At least he wasn't offended yet.

"Surprised...that I wasn't offended or...upset. Surprised that I was actually pretty...comfortable with you being so close to me. I'm not a comfortable person." He shook his head, frowning at thememory. What was getting into him?

"I have to admit, I'm surprised by that, too." She pointed out, watching the confusion cross his face. "I usually don't get that close to people. But I'm glad that it didn't bother you, I guess. If that isn't a weird thing to say." Though the more they spoke, the weirder this night was becoming, she thought absently. Though she couldn't say that she minded.

Nodding, clearly understanding her odd words, he cleared his throat. After a moment, leading her into a garden area, he looked back at her. "...I think...this has been one very interesting, unexepcted night..."

"But I think this has been a pretty pleasant interesting, unexpected night." She added with a soft laugh. Glancing at their surroundings and realizing that she had never come this far into this neighborhood before, she added, "I don't normally go out. Or enjoy myself this much. Tha--ah. This is pretty nice." She had nearly thanked him again, she thought, curiosity toward his aversion to the words resurfacing.

"A pleasant interesting, unexpected night." He nodded slowly, looking down at the woman for a moent before smiling slightly. "And, unfortunately, i think it needs to come to an end. I have...a pretty big day tomorow..."

Nodding at the last, she ran her fingers through her hair. "I probably should get some rest, too. We'll have to have a movie night sometime soon, if you don't decide you're tired of me by then." She added with a grin.

With a small smile, he nodded, giving a soft chuckle. As he started to elave the gardens, he stopped, a thought striking him. He almost...didn't want to leave without her, he wanted to make sure she got home alright. After a moment, he cleared his throat. "I can..walk you home if it'll make you feel safer. Or...not even all the way home if that's not what you want. I know the idea of me knowing where you live migh tnot be the most comforting."

"You almost got shot in front of my apartments a week ago, I'm pretty sure that if you wanted to cause trouble you had more than a chance." She pointed out, surprised that he would offer to walk her back. After the experience that had brought them to meet, she found she wasn't fond of the idea of walking back on her own. And a few more minutes in his company wasn't anything she could complain about. "If it's not too much trouble...I wouldn't mind the company." She said at last.

With a small nod, he started back toward the bar. "I never imagined this is how I'd spend my evening. Especially not..today."

"Is there something special about today?" She asked as she fell into step beside him. "Or am I just the last person you expected to run into again?"

"Just that party I was supposed to go to. My boss won't be happy that I didn't show." He shrugged, walking slowly, keeping his steps short so she wouldn't struggle to keep up.

"If you get into trouble, you can blame me or something. I hope this won't cause you grief when you meet up with him." She offered, surprised that he had slowed his gait. She had struggled to keep up with him during the beginning of their walk.

"Oh, he's been expecting me to skip out on the party for years, I just always surprise him and show up. This year he won't be surprised." He shook his head, glancing back at her. "Are you alright? You seem...shocked."

"So you're surprising him by doing exactly what he expected you to do?" She chuckled, hearing just how ridiculous the thought sounded as she said it aloud. She wondered what the dynamic between this man and his teammates was like. At the last, she gave a questioning hum before shaking her head. "Oh, it's nothing. I'm just grateful you're taking pity on my short legs." She added with a laugh.

"Precisely." He laughed softly as well, nodding. As he heard the last, he glanced back at her and gave a soft smile. "I noticed you were a little out of breath earlier."
