The Mirror - Garden
NoWealthNoRuin
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.

"And when you have a date you'll be glad you have it." He pointed out, shooting her a wink before rifling through the racks again. "Of course we will. It's just a matter of finding something that looks good on you...that you genuinely like."

"Mr. Kwon, I"m not a dating type. I've literally never--" she cut off, not wanting this man to know that in her 26 years, she'd never been on a date. She shook her head, watching him run through the racks. "...something red? or green?"

"I like the sound of that." he nodded with a grin, picking a few more pieces for her to try before realizing what she had said. "You...you've never been on a date?"

Her cheeks burned at the question and she ducked her head. "Of course not, that's insane. We met when I was on a date, remember?" Was that really considered a date...?

"Have you ever been on a date that you chose? Because you wanted to go?" He asked next, knowing that the asshole he'd seen her with couldn't have counted as anything but a nuisance.

She bit her lip, dropping her gaze. "...I'm not sure how that's any of your business, Mr. Kwon..." She shook her head, eyes on her feet.

"I'm not judging you. I'm just surprised--you're gorgeous." He shrugged, moving to pull something in a dark wine color from the rack, looking it over before adding it to the growing stack on his arm.

Looking up at him in obvious surprise at his compliment, she felt her cheeks flush. "Gorgeous? YOu are...literally the first prson to ever say that to me. Especially since I came here. Most everyone hates me here."

"They're all idiots. Something bright comes into their monochrome lives and they want to push it out again." He huffed at the thought, looking over to her with a smile. "You're worth more than all of them combined."

"You're ridiculous." She laughed weakly, shaking her head before looking down at her shoes. Her fingers curled into fists and she flushed softly. "Are you almost finished?"

"But I'm not wrong." He insisted, looking over his selection. "I think this is good enough to start with. Let's find the dressing rooms." He decided, moving toward the back of the store.

"To start with," she repeated, exasperatedly. She frowned, shaking her head as she looked up at him and followed after him toward the dressing rooms. "Do you think any of these will look good?"

"I think they'll all look great, but the point is finding something you like, remember? It's a little harder without a personal style to go off of. Once you figure out what you like, it'll get a lot easier." Reaching the dressing rooms, he handed her the small pile with a smile. "I'll be waiting right here."

"ARe you expecting to see them all?" She laughed weakly, cheeks flushing as she made her way to the dressing room and taking the dresses with a soft thanks. They were so bright, bright enough to get attention...which was something she never did. Stepping into the room, she shut the door and began to change.

"I'd like to. Maybe another point of view could help you see different things in each dress." He called after her, taking a seat on one of the chairs provided and crossing one ankle over his knee. He hoped she would find enough confidence in herself to like one thing, he thought.

The first dress she tried on was a salmon color. While the color didn't look horrible, it definitely didn't compliment her. The hem of the dress fell about mid-calf length and the sleeves felt tight and unflattering as she pulled at the dress to try to make it flow better, easier. Stepping out of hte dressing room with a frown, she kept her eyes on the ground. "It's pink."

"I thought it would pull out the pink in your skin. It does, but...that's not a good cut." He frowned with a huff. "And it doesn't fit your personality at all. You're not comfortable in it. Let's try another one."

"It's pink." She repeated, frowning as she looked down at the dress, tugging at it. "I don't like how tight it is...I feel like I"m suffocating." She shook her head, turning back toward the dressing room. "I won't be comfortable in any of these, I hope you realize."

"Bad choice on my part. Now we know what to stay away from." He shook his head. At the last, he chuckled. "Believe me, when you find the right one, you will be. It'll just...feel right."
