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.

"I do. Don't worry, I like making sure people look their best." He shrugged lightly, not worried for a moment about whatever price tags they might encounter. After all, every cent in the city was technically his, one way or another.

"i have a big enough problem with this and you think I'd let you spend that kind of money on me?" She scoffed, shaking her head, hair still a mess.

(The first outfit will be cute...but i totally want a formal outfit for him to go wah and realize he really does have a thing for her. Technically she agreed to go shop with him, they never said for one outfit only. So he could drag her around for a bit XD)

((I imagined Dimitri when Anya comes down in that blue opera gown. I love it. XDD))

"It's nothing to me." He shook his head as well, chuckling softly. "What else would I spend it on? I'd rather use it on someone else."

(That's actually the exact dress I had in mind for that moment. xD Red hair and all. XDDD)

"It may be nothing to you, but it's a lot to me and I'm just not comfortable with it. Why are you so content with making me so damn uncomfortable? Does how I feel really not matter? Does how anyone feels not matter to you at all?" She frowned, feeling the car gain speed again. Right. He ws a speed demon.

"You're reading too far into it. Would you rather I set up some kind of payment plan so you're not so uncomfortable? Or are people just not generous in the States?" He asked, raising an eyebrow as he glanced over to her.

"where i cone from generosity gets you killed and accepting something that's given out of generosity usually means there's a payment expected down the line." She shrugged, glancing out of the window. "I probably never should have agreed to the deal, knowing that. I mean....i really didn't think I'd see you again..."

"I'm not expecting anything. This wasn't an agreement, it was a bet. You lost, so this is the result." He shrugged as well, huffing lightly. "You shouldn't make bets on things that could happen, if you're going to be so suspicious of me. I'd rather be up front than spring a favor on you down the line."

"so you're telling me that there's nothing at all you want from me?" She very clearly didn't believe it. Her eyes moved to his again and she frowned. "Seoul is a big city. Unless i work with them i very rarely see anyone twice. I was 99% sure i wouldn't see you again and you wouldn't shut up about the clothes shopping. So i made a bet. I should have known fate would be too cruel to me.

"Just for you to enjoy yourself and find something you like. That's all I want." He shrugged once again. "This doesn't have to be a cruel twist of fate if you don't want it to be. This could actually be good."

"it doesn't have to be a cruel twist of fate, then why do i feel like prey...?" She laughed weakly, shaking her head, wondering how much longer it would be. She wanted to go read...

"That's all in your perception." He assured her with a soft chuckle, pulling into the parking lot of a ritzy storefront. "It's just shopping. It's not like I'm asking you to go through some gang initiation."

"In my perception." She scoffed, shaking her head before she looked up at him, then out the window to see the store. "Are you sure it's not an initiation? You don't want me to work for you or something?"

"If I wanted that, I would be way more obvious. And I've got a dress code; you'd have to do this either way." He teased, shooting her a wink as he pulled his sunglasses off, moving to open her door for her after turning the car off.

"So...basically you're saying I'm not good enough to be seen with you." She smirked as he opened the car door, looking up at him as she climbed out. Her eyes moved to the shop and she looked up, brow raising, clearly intimidated. But..she really wasn't good enough to be here at all... "I already feel like I'm not myself..."

"I'm saying that my business is run pretty tightly. Every job has a dress code, doesn't it?" He shrugged lightly, following her gaze. "Don't worry. It's a lot better than you think."

"And my teaching attire isn't good enogh." She nodded, flushign softly before she heard the last. Her fingers were trembling a little and she was very clearly uncomfortable being so close to such a ritzy place. She cleared her throat. "I guess...we should get this over with."

"You're hiding yourself. Choosing what fits and what works instead of what would be flattering to your personality as well as your body." He led her to the door, holding it open for her.

"I hide myself. Yeah, because I hate having attention. But that clearly doesn't matterto you." She gave a weak laugh,s haking her head. " I don't want to flatter my body, I just want to live my life as a teacher, go home at the end of the day and relax alone."

"Where's the fun in that? Even if you don't go out and drink or party or make an ass of yourself...that sounds like a really lonely life." He pointed out, giving the clerks a nod as they greeted him, waving off attempts to help as he led the way to the women's side of the store.

"I've lived a not-so-lonely life before. It's not that pleasant." It ended in pain, abuse, trauma, psychological help and worse...she didnt' want to do it again. As they walked the women's side, she could feel their gaze on her, looking at her as if she didn't belong there, as if she was using the man at her side for his money. They were judging her...she could even hear the gossip, the whispers and the insults they were speaking... She bit her lip.
