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.

"That will be perfect. Are you still convinced i won't find anything you'll like?" Already his mind was teeming with ideas, planning out where he would take her first. "Should I meet you here? Seunghyun's place? Your place?"

"I just don't do fashion, ahjussi. Don't be upset if you can't." She shook her head with a weak laugh, glancing up at him again. "Why would we meet at Seunghyun's place? I've never even been there." She shook her head again, biting her lip. "How about my house?"

"I'm sure I won't lose." He shrugged lightly, raising an eyebrow at the last. "I assumed you met Yeonyun at his house for your lessons. All right, your place it is. Any time that's good for you."

"awfully cocky..." She scoffed, shaking her head before thanking the barista for her drink and taking q sip. "I teach him at the school. I'm not a private tutor for him." She laughed softly, shaking her head before sighing at the last. He really wasn't letting her out of this... "Ib guess... Around five?"

"Always." He couldn't hide a grin, nodding at the last. "Five it is. I know just the place to start..."

At five minutes till five on the day they had agreed, Jiyong sat in his car outside of her house, sending a text to the number she had given him. He hoped this was the right number. He hoped this was the right address. But she had no real reason to dodge him like that, he rationalized, adjusting his sunglasses. She seemed to be a woman of her word...

When she received the text, Lyric gave an inward curse before making her way out of her house. Lokcing the door, she walked to his car, wearing an oversized sweater, torn jeans, and her hair pulled up in a messy red bun. AS she approached the car, she glance dinside the window to see the man. Her stoamch twisted nervously.

Offering her a bright smile, he unlocked the car, gesturing for her to have a seat. She looked comfortable...or stubbornly against any sort of fashion. He was sure to change that. But maybe if she had a little fun, she might want to do this again.

As she climbed ito the car, her gaze moved to his for only a moment before she curled her legs up to her chest to get comfortable, not thinking about the expensive seats and how well they likely wouldn't mix with her not-expensive shoes. "Good evening...."

Seeing the way she drew into herself, he made the decision to make sure she enjoyed herself. "Evening." He greeted jovially. "You don't have to look so frightened, you know. This is supposed to be fun." He added, readjusting his sunglasses before he put the car into gear and started down the street.

"I still don't get why you insist on it at all. This is...not my idea of fun." She shook her head, looking out the window. He was as handsome as ever, she noticed. It was...shocking. "Where are we going?"

"If it's nothing but torture for you, I'll buy you dinner as an apology. Wherever you want." He hoped that would help, glancing over to her. Mentioning the name of the store--one of his favorites for higher-end brands for something a little more casual. He assumed that something formal would be something she couldn't use in her work.

"I'll hold you to that, sir." She frowned, watching the streets pass them by. As she heard the place he had in mind, she raised a brow. "I couldn't even afford to look through the windows. Why choose somewhere so expensive when I'll likely not want anything in there anyway?"

"I know this store. I know their style, and I know that you're not looking for something formal. Something simple, flattering, pretty enough that you'll feel rejuvenated when you go out, but classy enough that you could work in it. Am I right?"

"It's...more likely I'll like it, yes. But not very likely. But at the party you mentioned something formal, a dress....What made you change your mind?" She finally turned her gaze to him, watching him closely as he drove.

"There are casual dresses." He pointed out, glancing over to her with a smile. "I thought I'd start small. Get you something that you'll actually wear instead of something to sit in your closet to be forgotten."

"Casual dresses. You really think I'd use a casual dress?" She shook her head, glancing back at him for a moment before she heard the last and her body tensed. "S...start? What do you mean start?!"

"You might, if we find the right one." At the last, he waved off her concern. "Don't worry, this is the only one you have to attend. I just thought that maybe, if you actually liked something, or if you actually end up having a little bit of fun, we could build your wardrobe a little." He couldn't hide his fascination at the thought. He hadn't had someone to help in too long.

"We won't find the right one." She shook her head, unable to hold back a small smile. At the last, she raised a brow, glancing at him once more. "Build my wardrobe? You do realize I don't get paid neough for this, don't you?"
