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.

SMiling at his words, she nodded. "Oh...you fund all the death in the city, that's right." Nodding, she looked up at him again, cheeks flushing softly. "You're sure they're not staring because you look...breathtaking?"

"I fund everything in the city. The hospitals, the businesses, everything deals with my bank in one way or another." He corrected. "I pale in comparison, Lee. This is your night."

"Right. You fund my job. You're the reason I'm here. In all technicality, you're my boss." She laughed softly, shaking her head. If he wanted her gone, all he had to do was say the word. As she heard the last, her gaze moved to his and her cheeks flushed softly. "And yet it's your party." After another moment, she smiled, fingers brushing his gently, resting on his arm. "I think...I enjoy being on your arm, Mr. Kwon."

"I definitely enjoy having you on my arm." He nodded with a brightening smile, moving toward the bar at one side of the room. "Would you like a drink?"

"A drink?" With a grin, she nodded. "A drink sounds great. Knob Creek, neat?"

"As you wish." He couldn't hide a smile, raising an eyebrow at her choice. "I didn't take you for a liquor kind of girl. I'm surprised."

Flushing as she realized he was judging her for her drink, she looked down. "Should I get something fruity and mixed instead?"

"No, I think it's pretty great." He assured her, smile widening as he led her to the forefront of the bar, ordering their drinks. "I should have known, honestly. Fruity and mixed doesn't seem like your style."

As he ordered her drink, she watched him closely. He seemed...happy, relaxed. It was shocking. SHe was about to speak again before her eyes fell on a pretty woman. Probably the most gorgeous woman she'd ever seen. And she seemed to be eyeing Jiyong like a piece of meat, like something she could own, possess...a part of her wondered if this was the ex or just another snake trying to feed her way to the top. Before she could stop herself, she reached out, taking her date's hand and leading it to her waist, taking the other and doing the same. Her hands moved to his chest an she looked up at him, smiling her most convincing, charming smile. "We're being watched, ahjussi..."

Wondering what she was doing as she took his hands, he felt his face heat before he glanced to the woman out of the corner of his eye. There was Yerin, looking at him as if he were a prize she wanted to win. Feeling a surge of confidence, he reached to brush a strand of red hair out of Lyric's face. "So we are. That would be the one that we're here to shame." He couldn't keep from grinning, surprised to find that the wave of pain and regret that he was so accustomed to when she was involved didn't overwhelm his mind once again.

As she felt the fingers in her hair, her heart jumped and she flushed softly. "I didn't expect you to be so comfortable with me..." Still, she leaned into his touch, fingers brushing over his chest gently. "She looks like a bitch, by the way. No offense..." As she looked up athim, she smiled softly. "...dance with me?"

"You're not offending me. She is a bitch." He laughed softly, shaking his head. At the last, he raised an eyebrow before taking her hand in his, leading her toward the dance floor as a new song started up. "I'd love to."

As the soft tune started, she felt herself move into him. Her fingers moved to the side of his neck, brushing his skin gently as her eyes moved to his. She couldn't hold bakc a small smile as she watched him, feeling his warmth against her. She was careful not to get too close, not wanting to make him uncomfortable, nt wanting him to feel cornered or like sh ewas using him, too. "This is..a more romantic song than I was expecting...I'm sorry. I was just trying to keep the act more...convincing.

"I think a romantic song will be more than convincing." He shrugged lightly, one hand resting on the small of her back and guiding her to stand closer as he led into the first steps of the dance. Feeling the burning gaze of Yerin on the back of his head, he found that it was too easy to forget her in favor of the beauty before him. "You're the perfect height to dance with," He mumbled absently.

"It will? I...I mean, you don't mind it? YOu're not upset that it's so--" cutting off as he pulled her closer, shel ooked up at him in obvious shock as her cheeks flushed. AFter a moment, she felt herself lean into his touches, following his steps with ease. "Do you realize...that you keep staring at me..?" What exactly did he see in her...? As she heard the last, she looked up at him, unable to hold back a small smile. "You...think so?"

"I'm...impressed, honestly." He admitted with a chuckle. "You're...so in your element and we've only just gotten here. I'm wondering why I didn't offer to take you to one of these earlier." At the last, he nodded. "It's noticeable when you dance with anyone too tall or too short. You don't move together as easily. You, however...it's perfect. I've never had that happen before."

"I don't feel in my element. I'm just a damn good actor apparently." She laughed weakly, shaking her head before moving her hand to the back of his neck, pulling him just alittle closer so his face was only inches from hers. "WE're still being watched. She wants to claim you again, it looks like." As she heard him mention offering earlier, she raised a brow. "I thoughtI was here strictly to make your girl jealous. Why would you have invited me earlier if she wasn't going to be there?"

"She likes a challenge...whatever she can't have has to be hers." His heartbeat jumped again at the touch, arms pulling her a little closer. "I told you before, this isn't strictly business. What kind of host would I be if I didn't make sure we enjoy ourselves a little while we're here?"

"I like a challenge, too..." She smirked, fingers brushing the hair at the nape of his neck as her eyes moved to his. After a moment, she pulled him closer, letting her cheek rest against his as she glanced over his shoulder to look directly at the woman as if to say "he's mine". It would drive the woman wild, she was sure. After all...she knew how to push a girl like that's buttons. Her free hand tangled her fingers with his and she hummed softly along with the music. "It's not strictly business?" Her voice was hardly above a whisper, lips grazing his ear. To anyone but him it would look like she was speaking intimate and innappropriate things into his ear. Her fingers moved up into his hair, tangling gently. "You saying you want to call this an actual date, ahjussi?" With a soft laugh, she watched thw oman's eyes flare. "...I wish you could see her face right now.."

Letting his eyes close with a contented smile, he was sure the sight would drive the woman up the wall, not knowing what the girl in his arms was doing. Being so close to someone after so long was...more than a little comforting. Shivering a little at her touch, he wondered if Lyric knew just what this kind of behavior was doing to him. "I'm sure she's turning green with envy." He added with a widening smile, tilting his head a little to murmur into her ear, completing the illusion. "I don't know...would you call this an actual date?"
