NoWealthNoRuin HK's Territory
A grand courtyard within a hotel on the inside of the border between the territories. It's been taken and retaken so many times that not even the family heads know who originally laid claim to it.

"Do you want me to walk you up?" He offered, standing and stretching a little. "I'm still a little worried about your knees..."

She shok her head, giving a small smile. "No. No, don't worry. I can make it myself. I can..." She trailed off, realizing just how badly her knees were starting to hurt. With flushed cheeks, she bit her lip. "maybe...just to the elevator?"

"To the elevator it is. I should be heading back to my room, I'll go with you as far as your floor." He nodded, offering her his arm for support. "Shall we?"

"Maybe you'll get your call on your way and some kind of explanation for him standing you up and giving you a much more pleasant evening." She smiled, seeing him offer his arm. Taking it with a soft flush, she leaned against him so she wouldn't hurt herself too bad. Still, she winced. "...Next time catch me before I fall, alright?"

"I doubt it. He's wounded my pride, I'm offended now." He shook his head with a grin. "But this has been a great evening, all things considered. Much better than I was expecting."

"It seems like wounding your pride is actually..pretty easy, am I right?" With a small smile, she looked up athim. "You think this has been a great evening? You must really be boring..."

"I'm not boring, I'm just tired of the same routines night after night." He shook his head with a chuckle. "I go to interesting places with the most boring people I've ever encountered...and I make them feel like kings and queens in the hopes of a good tip on top of my usual rates. It's tedious being the man people want me to be day in and day out."

"You're boring to me." She grinned, flashing him a wink. "So...what your'e saying is the only reason you're talking to me is beause I'm not your normal routine?" She looked up at him. "And...you aren't being the man people want you to be when you're talking to me?"

"This is the closest to being me I've been in weeks." he shrugged lightly, starting toward the elevators and giving her a light nudge. "If I'm so boring to you I could try to read you after all, see what kind of man could be more your style?"

At hte nudge, she gave a soft laugh, looking up at him curiously. "You think you can figure out my type of guy? Arent you worried you'll put on a good act and I'll fall for you?"

"It wouldn't be the first time." He shrugged, chuckling and reaching to hit the button to call the elevator. "What do you like, the romantic type? The prince, the dom? The boy next door?"

"I'm not a princess, why would I want a prince? Romance isn't real, so the romantic type I'd see right through. The D-the what?!" Her cheeks burned. "No!" At the last suggestion, she raised a brow. " what is the boy next door type?"

Laughing at her reaction, he shook his head. "The boy next door is...comfortable. Sweet, friendly...the kind of person you see in dramas that has known the leading girl for most of her life and he's loved her all along, but he keeps trying to help her get with the wrong guy because it would make her happy."

She frowned slightly. "I wouldn't know that type even if I had one." With a soft laugh, she shook her head, fingers gripping his arm tightly to try to keep herself up. "Why are you so determined to figure out my type? It seems a little cruel to try to figure out my type, make me 'fall' for you, just to shut me down. I mean, isn't that harsh?"

"No, I'm not doing this to play you." He shook his head with a soft laugh. I'm genuinely curious. What sort of men are you into?" He perked up a little as the elevator dinged, leading her inside and pressing the buttons for her floor and his. Terribly intimate spaces, he thought in passing.

As they stepped into the elevator, she leaned against his arm, eyes closing for a moment to fight back the pain. After a moment, she looked up at him and offered a small smile. "I'm not into men, dear."

"You don't strike me as the type to be into women." He pointed out, holding her a little more securely as she shifted in pain. while he wouldn't judge if she did, it would be a damn shame... "Or are you just not interested in romance?"

She shook her head. "I'm interested in personality. Or, I think I would be if I ever found someone worth being interested in. But I"m not really interested in romance. I mean...romance, love isn't real and lust doesn't interest me. Why throw myself into something that will ultimately end and likely only cause problems..when I can live my life alone and satisfied?"

"You're more cynical than I expected." He pointed out with a thoughtful hum. "But that sounds terribly boring to me. At least..." He frowned slightly, trying to find the words he wanted to use. "Even passing flames keep life interesting. I'd rather wear masks my whole life than be alone."

"Cynical? How is that cynical? It's the truth." She frowned, looking up at him as the elevator doors slid closed, leaving them alone. "Terribly boring? I do alright. Why change something that's working just fine..." As she heard the last, she looked up at him, raising a brow. "I would hate to wear a mask..even for a moment."
