The Mirror - Garden
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.

"You're not helping your case, you know." His laughter gained strength, a light-hearted smile on his lips. "So you are a danger to yourself..."

"Oh...shut up." She laughed softly, shaking her head as she looked up at him. "I'm only a danger because I can't walk straight."

"Maybe, but you're an endearing danger nonetheless." He concluded, refilling his cup with a widening smile. "So you know all about my career...what is it you do?"

She bit her lip, wondering how to answer his question before she flushed. "It's...a little complicated. I recently left a career in business when I came here. I'm an artist now...it oesn't pay well at all, but I'm making due."

"Artist? Do you paint, draw?" He tilted his head, fascination flashing in his eyes. He had always had a fondness for all facets of the arts...

"Yes." She laughed softly, nodding. "Pretty much anything artistic, dancing, music, painting, drawing, singing.." She smiled slightly, nodding again. "You seem excited abou thtat."

"It's rare I find anyone with an honest passion for things like that." His smile brightened. "Music...do you play as well as sing? What sort of job did you get around here?"

Nodding slowly, she flushed. "I...play a little violin and a very little bit of guitar. I'm not really good, though." As she heard the last,she shrugged smoothly. "I...go off of commiission and odd jobs. Performances for weddings, things like that."

"I think I know a few of my clients that could do with entertainment for a few of their parties. I could put a good word in for you? They pay very well." He offered, knowing that the commissions she took likely weren't paying very high.

"You're going to offer to do that for me when you don't even know if I'm any good? You've never heard me, you've only just met me." She laughed softly, shaking her head. "But...I don't need charity, you know."

"You have a nice speaking voice...I'd imagine your singing is just as nice. But I'd love to hear you play sometime." He offered, resting his arms on the table before him.

"But what happens if I"m no good and I work one of your clients parties? Wouldn't that give you a bad name, too?" She laughed softly, flushing lightly as she heard him say he'd love to hear her. "You're talking like you expect us to see each other again after tonight."

"I've made this name for myself after having a bad name to start with. I think I'll survive." He shrugged lightly. "I hope we'll see each other again after tonight. That offer for a concert and dinner wasn't a lie, you know." He added, smile widening.

"Stop flirting, you're a terrible actor. Which..is surprising given your employment." She laughed softly, shaking her head. "You hope we'll see each other? You want to see me...again..?"

"Maybe you're not as observant as you think, because I'm not acting." He pointed out, taking another drink. "I do hope we'll see each other. I want to see you again. I wouldn't have offered otherwise."

"Okay, then the flirting needs to stop." She laughed weakly. "It's cruel to give so many signals." With a smile, she shook her head, moving her fingers through her hair to push it back from her face, revealing a small bruise starting to darken under her eye. "So...when would you like to do our concert and dinner?"

"I'll try my hardest." He laughed softly, nodding at the demand. "When is convenient for you, miss?" He saw the bruise, wondering if he should mention it. There were quite a few reasons for a mark like that, but he was sure that if she mentioned her clumsiness again, it wouldn't be the case...

"When is convienient for me? I told you I work commission...I"m free all the time." With a small smile, wincing at the pain it sent through her cheek, she shook her head. "When is convenient for you? Don't you have a busy schedule all the time?"

"When I'm not getting stood up by new money. I'm free tomorrow, if you want to come by." He added with a smile. He had intended to call one of his usual clients to see if they wanted to hire him on his usual day off, but this was far more interesting. He could afford the break.

FLushing, she thought it over for a moment before nodding. "Tomorrow. What time is best for you?" Why did this feel like a date? It wasn't a date...right? It couldn't be a date. "You must be amazing at your job."
