Kang Chanhee was having an interesting week. Since his accident, he had been trying to get back into the swing of things, but life was getting pretty damn lonely. It seemed that time and people were intent on moving on while his own life was in a perpetual standstill. He had set a small CD player on the grass in his favorite park, a popular song blaring through the speakers as he worked on a dance routine he had been putting together before his incapacitation. He had nearly perfected it, he was glad to find, trying to work against the light frost that had settled over the grass.

Park Jaeeun was skipping school. She wasn't supposed to be there, but she hated feeling closed up, cooped up in the school. She couldn't breathe there. So as she moved away from the building and into the park, walking alone for a moment before she heard the sounds from the cd player. Stopping and turning her attention toward the attractive boy dancing in the grass, she raised a brow. He didn't seem much older than her. Only a year, maybe two...So shouldn't he be in school, too...?

Mouthing along to the song's lyrics, he attempted a more complicated move, letting out a yelp as his foot slipped from underneath him, sending him sprawling on the cold grass. Cursing sharply, he sat up, ruffling his hair in an attempt to figure out what exactly had gone wrong. Was it the ice or the fact that he was out of practice...? Turning to try to go through his steps again, he saw his audience, offering her a bright smile. "Hello."

She covered her mouth as he fell, trying hard not to laugh. She shook her head, about to start to walk away again before she heard him speak. He was talking to her? As she turned back to look up at him, she offered a very small smile, glancing around to be sure he was talking to her before she spoke. "Hel..hello."

"You're welcome to come and laugh at me from a little closer than that, you know." He offered, moving to his feet to pause the music. "I haven't practiced in the cold before--the ice tripped me up."

She couldn't hold back a soft laugh, she moved her fingers through her hair, pushing it back into the ponytail before she walked up to him to watch closer. "So..you're a dancer.. Shouldn't you be in school?"

"But it's such a beautiful day out here. Why not enjoy it?" He wasn't lying, he knew. Even if he weren't in such a strange situation he would be anywhere but a constricting classroom. "What about you? Are you enjoying the day, too?"

She nodded slowly, moving to stand out of his way. "Yeah. I mean... I couldn't breathe in the classroom so...I'm skipping. I guess we're both delinquents, aren't we?"

"I guess so." He beamed brightly, brushing some of the melting frost off of his jeans. "I'm Kang Chanhee. Nice to meet you, miss delinquent." He added with a laugh.

She felt her cheeks flush at his words and she gave a soft laugh. Her hair fell from the ponytail again, hiding her eyes for a moment before she looked up at him. "Park Jaeeun." With a small smile, she moved her fingers to tuck her hair back again. "Nice to meet you, too."

"So were you just deciding to go out on a walk instead of sitting through classes?" He asked, tilting his head as he gestured for her to join him on the grass if she wished.

"Oh...I just wanted to reathe for a little bit. I wasn't planning on being out long...I...have too many people that would notice me missing." She laughed weakly, seeing him gesture. After a moment more of thinking over the choice, she nodded and moved to the grass next to him. "So...do you compete or do you just like to dance?"

"I used to compete, but I haven't been able to practice lately. I had a group; we were going to audition to be trainees in spring." He grinned, ruffling his hair a little as the wind picked up. "I was in a car accident a few months ago and I'm just getting around again."

frowning as she heard him say he had been in an accident, she looked up athim in surprise. Her eyes met his and she bit her lip. "An accident? Was everyone alright? Are you alright?"

"Oh yeah, don't worry about it." He waved her off with an easygoing smile. "I just had some bruises and things, a fractured leg...I'm fine now, though." He stood up and struck a pose, spinning a little to demonstrate his point. "See? I'm almost in top shape. I just have to get back into practice."

"A fractured leg? You must have been miserable, not being able to dan-" cuttin goff as he struck his pose and spun, she covered her mouth quickly to muffle a laugh. "I see. It doesn't hurt anymore?"

"Not at all." He beamed, glad that she had laughed, even a little. She looked like she was overdue. "Man, I was miserable. It was awful, laying in bed watching the days go by out of the window...I couldn't wait to get moving again."

"And how long have you been back on your feet and able to dance?" She watched him, no longer laughing, no longer smiling. Her hair blew into her face and she shivered as the breeze picked up around them.

"About a week." He resumed his seat, seeing her shiver and humming thoughtfully. "It's really cold out here. Want to go get some coffee or something? If we're both playing hooky, we should do something to make it worthwhile, right?" He shot her a bright smile.

She shook her head, smiling weakly. "I would but I don't have any money for coffee or tea or something. I'm fine here.." Still...the breeze made it worse. She honestly couldn't feel the tips of any of her fingers. She shivered again. "Why do you practice outside? Wouldn't you prefer somewhere warm?"
