"If you could get me to yell, that would be an incredible feat." He shook his head, unable to hide his amusement. At the last, he raised an eyebrow. "Watching people is what I do...I can tell that you're hardworking, determined...imaginative. You like finding new solutions to problems others have given up on. That kind of mind is...refreshing. And would do well around here."

"I bet I could do it. That just says how annoying I can be." She laughed softly, watching hims she took another bite. "If you can tell all that from the little we've talked..maybe you should be a detective." At the last, she thought his words over, a small smile, a true smile spreading over her lips. She didn't usually smile like this, thr look beautiful, bright, even shining. "...maybe I will apply..."

"You said yourself that I spend time watching everyone...I know how to read people." He couldn't hold back a smile of his own, feeling his face heat at the beauty of her smile. How could something so bright even share the same space as someone as dark as him?

"You know how to read people.." she smiled, nodding up at him. After amoment, she smiled, pushing her hair back from her face before taking another bite. "Have you eaten enough?" Still smiling just as brightly, she raised a brow. "You're...staring pretty hard, ahjussi."

Shaking his head as her words brought him back to himself, his cheeks flushed, giving a nervous laugh. "Sorry, I was...trying to read you. There's still a lot about you I haven't figured out yet." He moved to get a little more from the pan, adjusting his sleeves as they slipped from where he had pushed them.

Unable to hold back her smile, she looked up at him. Her figners moved to push her hair back from her face. "You don't have to apologize. You weren't being creepy about it. It was actually...more..startstruck. It was flattering, even if you didn't mean it that way." She grinned, watching him fix his sleeves, heart jumping. He was..too attractive. He really had no idea, didn't he? "If you want to figure out more...just ask me. I don't have any secrets, ahjussi." Except for how she got in the building, how she'd show up on no security tapes, how she'd tracked him down...

"Mostly I was noticing that...you have a nice smile." He admitted, voice dropping to a mumble at the last as he realized just how foolish he sounded. "It's...bright."

"A nice.." She flushed at his words, looking up at him in surprise before giving a nervous laugh. "A nice smile. That was a truthful statement, wasn't it? You know you only had to tell me what was on your mind once today..." She flet the flush darken even more as he mentioned the word bright and she looked down at her plate. "I guess...bright is a good thing?"

"I know that." He felt his face heat, shaking his head. "Bright...is a good thing. It's flattering." He said at last, unable to meet her eyes as he returned to his seat.

"It's just...you seem so dark. I mean.. You seem to like the dark. It makes you less noticable. So I figured bright would be...would be a bad thing to you." She laughed nervously, shaking her head. "Flattering...is not what I expected." The flush darkened even further as she looked up a thim, trying hard not to react. Her heart wasn't racing...she wasn't flattered by his comliments... Nothing was going on.

"I like the dark...it suits me. but it doesn't suit you." He shook his head, smiling without realizing the shift as he took another bite. "I can appreciate bright things. I like them. It's just...not me."

"So the bright suits me." She laughed softly, taking a bite as well. AFter a moment, she looked down at her plate. "So..does that mean you appreciate me?"

"Exactly." He nodded at the first before his flush darkened at the last. Toying with his food for a moment, he nodded, unwilling to deflect in the wake of such a direct question. "I do. If that isn't weird to say."

She couldn't hold back a small smile. Her fingers moved through her own hair and she raised a brow. "It's not weird. It's...really sweet." She smiled softly, fingers moving to her plate gently. "I'm..glad you appreciate me."

"Can I get you anything?" He asked to cover his embarrassment, moving a few things he had washed from the drying rack into his cabinets.

Shaking her head, she finished her food and shifted to her feet to step into the kitchen and begin washing her plate, hip brushing his for only a moment as she walked past. "No, I don't need anything. Your food was plenty. If you're not careful you'll spoil me on such good food."

"There are worse things." He half-joked, raising an eyebrow at her movements. "I can clean that, you don't have to..."

"You cooked. Let me clean." She smiled softly, washing her plate off before moving to pick up his plate as well. "Unless you're a clean freak and you think I won't do it right? I don't want to overstep any boundaries."

"No, I'm...I'm not that strange." He shook his head with a soft chuckle. "But you are my guest. If you insist, I won't stop you..."

"I insist. In fact..from now on, if you're going to cook for me, I"m going to clean for you. Alright?" She smiled, finishing her cleaning before setting the dishes in thes trainer and turning back to look up at him. "...Do you want me to leave now?"
