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.

"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."

"I'd like to think so, but tonight has me wondering." He joked, shrugging lightly. "Seven sound good?"

"Tonight has you-- right...your date that stood you up." With a grin, she nodded. "that sucks. I've never been stood up. What's it like?" AT the last, she nodded again. "Yeah. Seven is great."

"I have to thank him, though. Our paths wouldn't have crossed otherwise." He shrugged lightly. "It...feels kind of shitty. Like I'm not good enough to even cancel on." He laughed. "I haven't heard a word from him since yesterday."

She frowned. "AMybe he got into trouble. Maybe he got hurt or killed or something." She frowned, shaking her head. "I'm sure there's a good reason for him to stand someone like you up."

"I'm not sure how likely that is. I know this city, but this kid didn't seem like he played with anyone that dangerous--" He broke off, surprised that she had said something so...complimentary. "Someone...like me?"

"Just because he doesn't play doesn tmean he didn't see the wrong thing at the wrong time..." Her voice was soft, hardly over a whisper before she shook her head, coming back to herself. At the last, her cheeksflushed softly. "Yeah...someone...someone like you."

"I feel like...you might know a little about that." He said after a moment, clearing his throat at the last. "That's...a pretty big compliment, from what you've been saying most of the night."

She ensed at his words. "You're ridiculous." Shaking her head, she glanced around the bar as if to make sure hey were alone. What if he worked for them. What if her new friend was actually the man they sent to take her back...? "I just mean you're an attractive man. That' much is obvious. So there has to be a reason he stood you up..."

"And you're still not a great liar. But we all have our secrets." He shrugged lightly, smile gaining strength at the last. "That's still a compliment. Maybe so...but hopefully it's for something more innocent than that."

(She's totally gonna blow him off the next day. She'll psych herself out and then call him and Say something came up. Then he cam happen to see her out on her balcony or something... XD)

"Hopefully. Maybe he found a date he doesn't have to pay for..." she shrugged smoothly, glancing at the man again. "Are you worried about him?"

((He'll be a bit offended. Being blown off two nights in a row. XD))

"Oh, harsh. I'll have you now I'm a delight." He laughed softly. "Not really. We only met at a party last week...he had heard of me from another of my clients, one of his friends."

(And then when he finds out that she thinks he's an employee of the guy that wants to kill her... XD)

"You're a delight? Then why'd you get stood up?" She grinned, raising a brow. "Bt I was being serious. He could have found someone he actually likes, someone he wants that he doesn't have to pay for...or maybe he's just an ass." At the last, she nodded, smiling slightly. "So you have a lot of clients, don't you?"
