"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."

With a warm smile, the man stepped further into the room, holding out his hand. "I'm Park Sehyuk, most people call me P-Goon." He glanced at Hansol. "New trainee?"

Hansol smiled brightly at the question. "I"m hoping so."

"He thinks I can be taught to dance." The taller boy joked, shaking the newcomer's hand. "I'm not graceful at all."

Pgoon grinned wider. "If anyone can teach you, it would be him. He's incredible. Taught half of our group."

Hansol rubbed the back of his neck, flushing lightly. Why the hell was he embarrassed for the attention. Why was he embarrassed to be complimented now? He was always so full of himself in the past.

"He's pretty inspiring." Byungjoo nodded, smile gaining strength. The sight of Hansol being flustered was pretty great, he found. It was more endearing than he expected. "I'm pretty sure I'm a lost cause, though..."

Cheeks flushing even darker, Hansol moved to the others, instructing them to start their stretches.

Pgoon looked at the younger boy for a long moment before smiling softly. "Give him a week. If he can get you dancing to some kind of beat, I'll set youup with an actual audition with us."

"A week? You really think I could be worth your time?" He asked without thinking, surprise clear on his face. He expected to sit and watch...not be offered a chance to join them.

"Why dont you watch for now, if you're not sure about it." He smiled again. "You can see our Hansol at work."

"Good idea." He nodded with a smile, moving to sit with his back to one of the mirrored walls, well out of the way of the others as they warmed up.

With a grin, P-goon joined the others, stretching and preparing for rehearsal. When everyone was warmed up, Hansol moved to the stereo and pressed abutton, hearing it burst to life. With a grin, he looked back at the rest of the group. "Follow me. We'll work on our song after a quick practice." Moving to the front of the group, he counted out the rhythm before doing a couple of fairly simple moves, waiting for the group behind to follow.

As the group followed, Byungjoo's eyes followed every movement, watching how they all fell into step almost perfectly. Their synchronization was great, their movements fluid and strong...it was one thing to see a group on stage, but quite another to see them in their comfort zone. And at the head of it all was Hansol, leading them all and--in the slighter boy's opinion--looking incredibly cool.

With a grin, he ordered another step, doing somethign a bit more complex and waiting once more. When they followed, he increased the difficulty three more times, for three more rounds before instructing them to put it all together. They all danced together this time, in perfect unison before the song wound to an end and he turned back toward the group, clapping and grinning brightly as his hair hung with sweat in his eyes.

His eyes were dancing as he watched, face betraying his wonder as he saw them put separate movements together into one striking dance. As they finished, he couldn't keep from offering a few claps, beaming brightly. "That was awesome."

Hansol, glancing to the newcomer with a soft flush, offered a small bow of thanks before moving to the stereo again. "Okay guys..you know the drill." Watching as everyone moved to their spots, he started the song they'd written, the soft tone, the love story winding it's way through the room as he moved ack to the head of the group again, facing the mirror.
