As if realizing what he'd done, her released the boys hand with a soft apology and an explanation that he was a physical person with everyone. "So...you really remember a lot about me, don't you?"

"I never knew you, but I knew of you. People talked. And you...weren't really one for fading into the background." He shrugged with a soft laugh. Not like Byungjoo, who never stepped out of the background in his life.

"Everyone knew of me. Which...wasn't always a good thing." It made hiding his crushes so much more difficult. Especially his...unique crushes. The ones he never really admitted to, even to himself. "So...at least I made some kind of impression. That's a comfort."

"It's a good impression, believe me." He added, wondering just hat sort of things the school spoke of that weren't ideal. He had only heard of the dancing, the pranks, the parties...

"a good impression...? Im not sure i buy that. I was a bad kid." With a laugh, he turned into anothet room. There was a wall of mirrors around them and a small stereo in the corner. "Here we are..."

"For someone who played it too safe, you were someone to look up to." He shook his head before looking around the practice room. It was just what he expected it would be, he thought in passing. Though he never expected to be standing in one. "Wow..." He breathed absently, smile pulling at his lips.

Grinning, watching the man and his reaction to the room, he couldn't hoks back a thought... This boy was beautiful. "What do you think?"

"It's awesome." He grinned brightly, eyes shining as he looked to his companion. Then, flushing as he realized that he was getting carried away, he joked, "Though...I probably look like an idiot being so excited over this, huh...?"

"You look like I did the first time I came here." He smiled, ushering the boy further into the room before showing him the stereo. "This is the room we use until we take off and get a little more well-known. Then we get to use the big room with the good stereo."

"This isn't the big room?" It seemed massive to him. But depending on the group, he could see it being a little cramped for more than six or seven people. Then, curiosity burning too much to keep it to himself, he added, "How long ago did you first come here?"

"No. The big room is so much better. But we aren't allowed in it yet." He laughed softly. It was reserved for his company's bigger groups, the ones that made them money. As he heard the question, he thought for amoment beefore grinning. "How long have we been out of school? I came here about three months before graduation."

"I was packing to move to the country about then. And you've been living out your dream ever since." He thought for a moment before adding, "Even if I'm useless on the dance floor, maybe I can help in some other way. Get you guys into the good practice room at record speed."

"It's not exactly the dream. I mean...I'm still a trainee." He laughed weakly, shaking his head as his hair fell in his eyes. "I'll teach you the dancing. Why don't you show me something you can do. Something musical?"

"You got this far." He pointed out with a smile. At the last, he felt his face heat. "Show...show you? I mean, I write songs sometimes--I wrote the one I was playing when you found me earlier--but that's about all I can do."

He nodded, moving to the far wall andpulling dow a guitar, offering it to the boy. "Play something, sing something. I wantto hear your voice." With any luck, the others would be coming in any second...if he could get this boy playig before they showed up, it would be as good as an audition.

"W--what do I play?" He asked, taking the guitar and feeling his face burn even darker. But it was just the two of them. He could think of something. After a moment, he thought of the song he had been playing that afternoon, figuring that was as good a place to start as any. Looping the strap over his shoulder, he started to play. As the soft notes filled the room--the acoustics far better than he expected--he lost himself to the melody. His voice joined the guitar, eyes closing to ease his nerves and to give his confidence a little boost. This wasn't his bedroom or a secluded area of the park. This was in front of someone that he admired.

"Anything you want." He smiled, unable to hold bak a smile at the flush. He was so damn cute... As the boy began to play, he felt his tension ease. He relaxed into the song, moving a little, daning a little. It was a gorgeous song, sang with a gorgeous voice, by a gorgeous man. There was literally nothign bad he could say about it. It didn't take long for he door to crack open and for him to glance over and see him team, staring in awe.

As the song wound to a close, Byungjoo opened his eyes, feeling his face heat as he looked back to the other man. "I, uh...messed up a little." He admitted with a soft laugh. "I've never played in front of someone before."

"i didn't notice at all." He smiled warmly, about to speak again before their oldest member entered the room with the others.

"Neither did we. You're very good." As he approached the boy, her smiled. "What's your name?"

Jumping as he heard the new voice, he felt his face burn as he realized that he'd had more of an audience than he expected. "Um...Byungjoo. Kim Byungjoo."
