"I...I'm not sure." She admitted, unable to look up at him as she brushed her hair behind her ear. Biting her lip for a moment as she thought, she shook her head. "Not...not for asking questions, I think...but if I learned too much, then I'm less sure. But asking questions would annoy you at worst. Not really anything that would throw a wrench in what you do."

He hummed softly, nodding at her words, thinking them over. After a moment, he cleared his throat, leaning back to watch her closely. "How about a deal, then. You can ask me anythng you want, anything at all, and I'll answer honestly. But you have to extend the same courtesy."

"I'm not that interesting, ahjussi...but that sounds pretty fair." She said at last, looking up to him once again. She still felt like a cornered mouse...but perhaps this might make the snake before her seem more human. "Who should ask first?"

He smirked. "How old are you?" How about they start simple, his mind mumbled absently. "You seem young."

"Not that young." She defended with a soft laugh. "I'm twenty-two. What about you?"

"That's only five years. You say that like there's a much bigger gap between us." She pointed out, surprised that he was so young after all. He seemed like the type that had seen far more than his age suggested.

"When you're in my line of work five years is like a decade." He nodded, smilng slightly. "Does it surprise you...? My age?"

"A little." She admitted with a small smile of her own. "You just...seem older. Looking in your eyes, I mean. Like you've seen a lot."

"You expected me to be older with a face like this? " He smirked, raising a brow below he shook his head. "I've seen a lot, yes. .does that make me old?"

"Some people look young. I'm bad at telling how old someone is." She shook her head. "It doesn't make you old, but you seem...wiser, I guess. World-weary. I'm...not making any sense, am I?" She asked, giving a self-conscious laugh.

"You're making perfect sense." With a soft smile, a kind smile to the waiter, he gave a soft thanks as the soju was placed in front of them. "Wiser. I like that word. You think I"m wise, then?:

Feeling her heartbeat pick up at the sight of that smile, she offered a soft thanks to the waiter out of habit. She hadn't known such a gentle expression could cross his face. At the last, she nodded,brushing her hair out of her eyes. "Yes, I think so. You'd have to be in your line of work."

Gaze returning to hers, he raised a brow. "You're blushing...but I haven't done anything to embarrass you, have I?"

"Embarrass me? N-no, you haven't." She shook her head, reaching to open the bottle before her.

"Are you sure?" HE reached out, taking the bottle from her hands and pouring her a drink as if it were the most natural thing in the world. He smiledsoftly again. "Let me." Sliding the small glass to her, he leaned back and watched her closely. "You seem nervous. Do you still not trust me..?"

"I am nervous, but...if you were going to do anything to hurt me, you would have done it by now." Watching his movements, she thanked him softly before adding, "I'm...not scared of you. It's more that I'm intimidated."

"I'mg lad youre not afraid." He smiled, pouring himself a glass and taking a drink. "The food should be out in a moment. She's really fast and she's an incredible cook, you'll see." AS he leaned back in his chair, he crossed long, slender leg over the other and he gave a soft hum. "This has been an odd night for you, hasn't it?"

"That's one hell of an understatement." She took a drink from her own glass, relaxing a little bit at the familiar burn. "This has to be the weirdest night of my life."
