"I guess so. I hope you don't find yourself in situations like that anymore." She smiled weakly. "Maybe in the future you'll get to be more open. In my experience, it's better to be open and accept the consequences than be closed off and miserable."

"I haven't since I moved here." He nodded with a weak smile of his own. At the last, he gave a soft, humorless chuckle. "Not in my experience...but maybe here it's better..."

"It's better. Trust me." She nodded, smiling softly. As she glanced down at her empty cup, she looked up with a small smile. "Do you want me to take you home now?"

Nodding as he realized that she was finished, he downed the last of his drink with a small smile. "Ah, yes. And...thank you for doing this. I feel pretty dumb for getting lost on my first day here."

Laughing softly, she shook her head. "Don't feel dumb at all. It's a big city." As she stood, trhowing her cup away, she glanced back at him. "It's a nice day. Do you want to walk or would you rather call a cab?"

"It's a nice day. Can we walk?" He asked with a small smile, following suit with his own cup. "If you don't mind, of course."

"OF course. I woulnd't have asked if I had a problem with it." She laughed softly, shaking her head. "Come on." Stepping outside, into the cool breeze, she glanced back at him and smiled. "You'll have to tell me your address."

Apologizing softly, he gave her the address, having to double-check with the phone he'd barely bought the day before. It didn't help that hsi sense of direction was pretty questionable, he thought in passing. Maps were one thing...these streets were something else entirely. It barely made any sense.

Nodding, she pointed to the left. "This way." As she started walking, she glanced up at him and offered a small smile. "Would you like my phone numbeR? Any time you get lost, you can always just call me or text me and ask me for directions. I can get you anywhere in the city. And I'll find you the quickest way."

"Really?" This plan was getting better and better. having one friend in the city would solidify his story, and get him an inside look as to how this city worked. The faster he learned these streets, the more efficient he would be. Realizing he had spent too long before answering, he ducked his head, face heating as he nodded. "That would...that would be great. Thank you, miss."

"Really." She smiled, nodding as she started down the street. Glancing up at him, she raised a brow. "How are you liking the city, ahjussi? Have you been enjoying yourself? Done anything fun yet?"

"It's...much bigger than I expected." He answered honestly, chuckling at how foolish he sounded. "It feels sometimes like it...swallows me whole, like I'm lost...but it's fascinating." At the last, he added, "Today was the first time I've really gotten out and tried to do anything. One of the reasons I came here was to apply to go to college, so I've been studying a lot."

"studying? What are you going to college for?" So how old was he...? He was.
. Interesting. "It gets smaller the longer you stay here, trust me. I'd love to travel, see the world... It would be an amazing experience, i think..."

"I agree. Once I get used to living on my own...maybe going other places would be fun." He nodded, humming at the last question. "I...haven't decided yet. I'm going for general studies until I can make up my mind. I don't really know where my strengths are yet."

(You never made me Leo... T.T)

"You've never lived on your own before? How old are you, ahjussi?" She couldn't hold back a small smile. "General studies? there's not anything that interests you enough to pursue yet?"

((I just have to think of how to start him, I'll make him soon. XD))

"Twenty." He flushed at the question, trying to stand a little taller. "I, uh...stayed to help my parents for a while before I moved out." At the last, he shrugged. "Not...not really. I don't want to settle down to a quiet life like my parents did. There's...so much out there."

(Lies...you hate him...you hate my Leo...)

"Twenty is...a perfectly normal time to be out on your own. In fact, it's pretty early. Why are you trying to justify just now getting out--" she cut off, wondering if perhaps his family wasn't a good one..if maybe he'dd been kicked out, maybe his leaving hadn't been by choice. As she heard the last, she gave a small nod. "I understand that at least..."

((How could I ever hate Leo, he's my wrecker and your ultimate. XD))

"It's...something I've worked toward for a long time." That much was the truth, at least. He had to show everyone that he was an exceptional soldier, that they had chosen the right man for this job...even at his young age. He'd busted his ass to be assigned to this team, after all.

(My baaaaaaaaaaabyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy)

Nodding, she smiled slightly. "I understand. I can appreciate the hard work you had to go through." With a smile, she cleared her throat. "Do you ever think about going back to your parents?"

"Someday," He said after a long moment's thought. "But...I don't want to go back until I've...made something of myself, if that makes sense. I want them to see that I've done well."
