Hearing his words, she looked up at him. She didn't blush as she expected she might...it had to be because she knew he was only teasing her. Still, her eyes met his and she raised a brow. "That's what you've got? That I look as good as I did last night. I looked terrible last night. I'm not beautiful. You'd have to try much harder than that if you wanted to fluster me or something. I mean..." She laughed softly. "I know it's an act, but still...YOu could try harder."

"That's the thing, I'm not acting." he replied, shifting to stand a little closer to her, turning to face her completely. "In a sea of makeup and silk and fake smiles, you were the most interesting person in the room because I knew you were real. Whatever you said, whatever you did, it was because you felt you should, not because you had anything to prove or some motive to reach. That was beautiful to me."

"Not act--" she cut off, looking up at him. When he turned to face her, she felt her heart jump and her cheeks flush lightly. The way he spoke of her, what he said, her cheeks burned even darker. She was interesting?? She was real? "So...you're saying my personality is beautiful, not...not me?" She looked down , hair falling in her face. WAs he serious? She couldn't believe those words. After a momet,s he gave a nervous laugh,s haking her head. "I get it. I see. I asked you what you'd say if you were messing with me. That's..that's funny. Good job. I almost believed you."

"The rest of you is gorgeous. Like I said, all of those women in fine dresses and expensive jewelry, and there was you in a t-shirt, outshining them all without even trying. Why do you think I was so intent to keep talking to you?" He asked, shrugging lightly as he moved to transfer the biscuits from the pan to another plate. "And the greatest thing is...I mean every word. The best way to mess with you is to tell the truth, I've figured out."

"Gor...gorgeous?" Taehyung had been the only person to ever talk to her like this. And he was always teasing...He knew she'd had a crush on him for years..and he did it all in good fun. Because it was so easy to make her blush. But now...she found her cheeks flushing darker than Tae had ever managed before. She dropped her gaze, shifting uncomfortably. "You can..you can stop now, Mr. Lee. The...the joke's over. It's...not as funny anymore." She was getting more uncomfortable, more self-conscious of all the ways his words were wrong, were lies. It was something that usually didn't bother her, but now...

"I'm still not joking, but I'll stop if you want." He shrugged lightly, setting the now-full plate aside. "Anything else I can do?"

Biting he rlip at his words, she looked up at him. For a moment she was silent, too focused on how a man as attractive, as interesting as him could possibly have not been joking. She took a deep breath, fingers moving through her hair before she glanced down again, once again eralizing she was wearing her pajamas.. clothes she'd never go outside in. She wa showing way more skin than she'd ever meant to in front of anyone. She shifted uncomfortably. "I just..find it difficult to believe you. Forgive me, I just..Taehyung is the only perons that's ever really..complimented me. And Idon't believe him, either."

"Maybe you should start. There's a lot more to you than you think." He offered with a softer smile, realizing that this was the first time since the breakup that he had paid anyone an honest compliment like this.

She bit her lip, looking up at him with reddened cheeks, fingers tucking her hair behind her ear again. She gave a small smile. "If you're not careful I may start to actually believe you..."

"That means I should keep going, right?" He asked, leaning against the counter with a raised brow. "Then you'll know I'm being honest."

"That's the opposite of what that means, Hongbin." She hadn't called him by his name so informally before, her mind reminded softly. Her cheeks flushed and she looked down again. "I still won't know for sure that you're being honest or not."

Grinning at the use of his name, he couldn't hold back a chuckle. "Maybe you'll figure it out before our sessions are over." He said at last, moving to a cabinet to pull down a glass for each of them. Her last venture with a drink hadn't ended well, he recalled.

She flushed at the sound of his laugh, shaking her head and setting the rest of the food out, pulling some ravy she'd made the day before from the fridge, heating it in the microwave as well. She gestured to the spread. "Here you go. It's all done." As he pulled the glassesdown, she looked down at her bandaged hand and flushed again. "Are you treating me like a child now, Mr. Lee?" She couldn't get her own cups anymore..could she?

"No, I'm just trying to help." He shook his head with a laugh, pulling a plate down for her as well and passing it to her. "It's the least I can do for you offering me breakfast."

With a flush, she laughed softly, looking up at him before taking the plate with a soft thanks. Shaking her head, she gestured to the food. "Guests first."

Thanking her, he moved to load his plate with a little of everything, pouring juice into his glass as he left room for her to get what she wanted. "This looks great. Thank you, miss Hana."

Watching him get the food, surprised by how glad she was he was eating, she nodded. Filling her own plate, she started to try to pour her glass, shifting the plate, nearly dropping it. With a flush, she gave a sot laugh. "I'll just..come back for that."

"I can get it." He chuckled softly at the display, pouring a second glass for her. Her apparent lack of grace was pretty endearing, he thought in passing. The more he talked to her, the more he found she was pretty damn cute.

Hearing the chuckle, her cheeks flushed. Her eyes moved to his, offering a soft thanks before she Climbed into her seat, fingers toying with her fork as she waited for him to join her, feeling all the more likea couple sharing a normal breakfast to start any other day. This was weird... "I must look like I can't even survive on my own, don't i?"

"You look like you're a little nervous and self-conscious. Probably because you're not used to having houseguests." He shrugged lightly, moving to join her across the table. "But you're perfectly capable to me."
