"Most people I've met like you aren't that willing to admit they have any family. They think it makes them weak." She shrugged lightly, feeling her smile gain strength at the last. "You're not entirely wrong." She added before her eyes widened, realizing she had said that out loud. Oh shit. Taking another drink, she hoped he hadn't heard.

"Well...it's kind of impossible to say I don't. We're identical." He laughed softly, shaking his head. "I love my family...and anyone stupid enough to go after them will likely end up in that fryer, courtesy of my mother." As he heard the last, he raised a brow, smirking slightly. "I'm not wrong? You think I'm attractive, then?"

"She's your mother?" She asked, surprised that he had taken her to a place his family owned. Biting her lip as he said the last, she felt her face burn. "Um...yeah. Yeah, I do."

"Yes. She's my mother. Pretty, isn't she?" He smiled, looking at the older woman with clear adoration before looking at the girl again. "You don' have to be embarrassed. I get compliments like that all the time."

"She is. I see where you get it." She couldn't hide an honest smile at the sight of his open affection, face still flushed. "All the time? I guess you have a lot of admirers." She added with a soft laugh.

"You see where I get it? Are you saying I"m pretty?" He smirked, watching his mother throw a spoon at his brother before the woman laughed loudly. He really didn't get to see them near enough. "I have a lot of women that want my power and my money. Is that the same thing?"

Grinning at the display, she couldn't hide a laugh, trying to ignore the jostle of her ribs. At the last, she raised an eyebrow. "So...they're only after you for your title. That's shallow, don't they try to get to know you?"

He shook his head. "I haven't been on a date in nearly four years that wasn't a woman just wanting the title and the money that comes with being mine." He shrugged smoothly. "I don' really see a point to dating much anymore."

"That's...awful." She frowned at the thought, fingers running along the edge of her glass. "I can't imagine anyone just...faking affection for money or power. Playing emotions like that is...it's heartless. And unnecessary."

Raising a brow at her words, he couldn't hold back a surprised smile. "So...you're saying you wouldn't go after me or my family simply because I have money? Are you sure? I've never met an honest woman...I didn't think they existed...."

"I can't be the only girl in Seoul that would rather talk to you than try to seduce you." She shook her head with a soft laugh, smile gaining strength at his surprise. "Maybe you keep meeting all the wrong women. To me...it sounds kind of pathetic. What's the point in wanting money, in power like that if all you're going to use it for is to sit back and spend it all to try to fill an empty life? I need something more fulfilling than that."

"So you're saying you don't want to seduce me? You're not even remotely interested?" With a soft laugh, he leaned forward to pour himself a second glass. "So...how do you propose I find the right woman?"

"I don't know how to seduce anyone, ahjussi." She laughed as well, taking another bite. At the last, she hummed thoughtfully. "I...don't know. maybe find someone who isn't a part of the game, someone who sees you, not the masks or the money or the power."

"Just because you don't know how to doesn't mean you don't want to. But I guess I"m not just interesting enough, am I?" HE laughed softly, shaking his head. As he heard the last, he raised a brow. "That sounds easier than it really is. Finding a woman that doesn't want to play games...if it was possible for me, I'm sure it would have happened by now. I've given up on finding someone to spend my life with and that's fine. I don't need a woman to be a successful person."

"I don't know you well enough to know yet." She half-joked, laughing as well. At the last, she hummed softly, draining her glass. "You're a little young to be giving up on love, ahjussi...even if you don't need love to be successful...it sounds awfully lonely."

"Yet? You think you'll learn more about me?" He laughed softly again, pushing his hair back from his face. "I jus don' see the use of love. Not romantically, anyway. I love my mother and I love my brother...but anything else is pointless."

"I don't think I will. As interesting as you are, something tells me as soon as you're done making things right you'll go back to your life and I'll go back to mine...until I have the money to pay you back." She shook her head, reaching out to refill her glass. "I don't believe it's pointless, honestly...family is important for those that have it...but doesn't it ever feel like something's missing?"

"You seem upset with that thought, that we'll both go back to our own lives..." He raised a brow, watching her closely. Watching her refill her glass, he smiled. SHe was getting more comfortable. Good. "Somehing is always missing. But just because you're missing something doesn't mean you'll find what it is you're missing. Just because I"m missing somehing doesn't mean that something is 'love'."

"Upset? No, I'm sure it's weird enough for you to be hanging out with someone who waits tables." She shook her head, relaxing a little. "But what if it is? Call me a romantic, but...I just find it hard to believe anyone can give up on something like that for good."

"So...you want me to leave you alone, then? Are you excited to be finished with any contact by me?" He smirked again, raising a brow. As she said the last, he tensed, clearly uncomfortable with this conversation. "I'm just not the type the be romantic. I don't need romance, I don't need affection. I get by without it. I don't want it. You should probably learn that not everyone sees things the same way you do."
