"We do?" That was a surprise. He heard that he people in this country were foolish, deluded, weak, but he had never considered the likelihood that they could be cruel for no reason. He should have, he thought, frowning as he looked at this woman. Any person had the capability to be cruel. "I...I'm sorry." He said at last, not knowing what else to say.

Her fingers moved to her arm, covered by a jacket sleeve and she nodded. "Yeah. We do." She frowned, nodding as she still stood in the street. She heard the car honk before she saw it, unaware of a vehicle rushing through the intersection, it barely missed her but she didnt' flinch. Her eyes moved to the car for a moment before she looked up at him again. "Come on. It's going to rain soon and you don't have an umbrella."

He took a step forward, hand out with the intention to catch her and pull her back from the oncoming car, but he froze as it passed by, the woman never flinching. She was fearless...or perhaps she had nothing left in her to feel fear. Fascinating... "A-are you all right? That idiot nearly hit you..."

She glanced after the car for another moment before looking back at the man again and offering a small smile. "I'm fine. People almost hit me all the time. I'm not really one to...watch where I"m going." She shook her head, looking up at him again. "Don't worry so much, you can't be afraid to get hit by a car or two if you want to live in this city."

(I totally want to have a tuck everlasting moment with these two later... after they've gotten to know each other a little more. Or...she's gotten to know the lie, at least. Like..it starts raining. They start running to get out of the rain, take cover under a tree or something and they're both soaking wet... xD)

((I haven't thought of that movie in so long, I love this image. XDD))

"I'm...I'm more surprised you didn't even move. If you had taken one more step..." Was an untrained woman so skilled in knowing just how far away to stand from a speeding car? Most people would back away out of instinct.

She gave a small shrug, looking up at him. "You're looking at me like you're shocked...but also like you're impressed." She laughed softly. "Did I do something so shocking?"

"You're right. I've never met anyone so...fearless before." Not in this country, at least. "Everyone here is usually so...careful. Jumpy, even."

"And I don't seem careful or jumpy?" After a moment, she laughed. "I mean, I wouldn't...I'm one of the only people in this city who will offer to take a stranger home without fear of getting attacked. YOu won't attack me, will you, ahjussi?"

"Careful, yes. Not jumpy. You're...very confident." He commented, tilting his head as he watched her. At the last, he shook his head quickly. "O-of course not. Not unless you attack me first." He added in an obvious joke, chuckling softly.

"You think I'm confident?" she laughed softly, shaking her head as they walked away. As she heard the last, she gave a soft hum of her own. "Maybe I will...just to see how you react."

"I didn't learn much defense." He pointed out, knowing that much to be the truth. The most of his strengths were to use force against his opponent...or let them use their own force toward their downfall. Defensive fighting wasn't his strongest suit.

"I'll teach you some, don't worry." She smiled, crossing the street once more as she started down another street. "So...have you taken your entrance exams yet?"

"N-not yet." He had been a little busy working on the list, missing the first opportunity. It would be a few weeks before he would be able to try again. "I didn't know when the date to take the exam was until it was too late. I'll have to take them the next time they open."

"I see..." She smiled, glancing back at him. "I feel like you'll do really well. You seem smart enough to get into any program, honestly." He smiled wider. "So...do you have any ideas, anything at all that you think you may want to pursue?"

"You met me today. You're so sure I'm smart enough?" He asked unable to hold back a smile at the comment. That was more heartening than he expected. "I thought about going into the police academy...or pursuing psychology. I like studying people."

"You just seem...very clever, that's all. Like there's more to you than you're letting on." She smiled, shrugging slightly as she looked up at him. "The police academy? I imagine you'd look good in a uniform, honestly."

"Isn't that the truth about everyone?" He asked with a smile of his own. At the last, he felt his face heat. "You...you think what?" He hadn't expected a comment like hat to be pointed toward him of all people.

"the truth about everyone? Meet the people I know and you'll learn very quickly that not many people here have more to them than the shallow, boring peerson they first show you." She shook her head with a soft laugh As she heard the last, she glanced back at him. "I did'nt say you were sexy, ahjussi. I just said you'd look good in a uniform. Most people do."

"Either way, it's more of a compliment than I've gotten before." He couldn't keep from smiling at the thought. Maybe he should try...the training would keep him on his toes without cutting into the rest of his time.

Raising a brow at his words, clearly curious by his statement, she gave a soft hum. "You haven't been complimented like that...?"
