"That's surprising. I mean...you're a good looking guy. I would have figured you'd had a thousand girlfriends in highschool." She laughed softly, looking up at him. "Really, you'll get a lot more compliments now that you're in the city. It'll happen all the time for you, just watch."

"Not one." He shook his head, more surprised by the second compliment than the first. "I...probably won't know what to do about them, honestly. I'm more used to criticism."

"you're welcome." She's nodded, smiling slightly. "You don't seem to be used to women actually seaking their mind. You really must not be from the city."

"I don't normally talk to women, remember? And none have ever spoken to me." Though he wasn't used to any women holding power. She was very outspoken. He wasn't sure if it was strange or refreshing...possibly both.

"Thats still surprising... I cant imagine not talking to people like you say you haven't. It's insane..." Shaking her head, she looked up at a building they passed, frowning at the memoriea it brought. Her steps picked up.

"Insane? Is it really so unusual to have a...well, a lonely childhood?" He asked, seeing something in her tense as she passed the building. "This is...a place you would rather forget." he observed without thinking.

"It is. I don't believe it, I had to have turned down six more streets to get to that cafe...did you take a shortcut? Or was I really lost?" He asked with a soft laugh, brightening.

"You were lost." She laughed softly, shaking her head as she looked back at him. "It's not hard to get to the cafe, you just have to know the streets." Smilling wider, she looked up at the building. "Have you lived here long?"

"I've lived here for...a week and a half, by now." He knew the apartment was anything but ideal, but it fit in with the guise of being a low-income student. "I just got unpacked last night...today was the first day I really decided to go out."

"It was affordable." He chuckled softly. After a moment, he added, "Um...would you like my number? In...in case you wanted to talk again?" How were men able to speak to women so easily in the shows that played incessantly on every screen he passed, he thought with a wince. This was harder than some of his training.

She looked up at him, unable to hold back a small smile, a small laugh. She met his gaze, offering a soft smile. "ARe you wanting to give me your number because you want to talk or because you think I'm cute, ahjussi...?" She didn't even know his name...
