She flushed at his compliments, givin ga nervous laugh before she heard the last. Unable to hold back a small smile, she moved her fingers to her hair. "I know, but that was different. We were...I mean...it was phone sex. I was intending to turn you on. All I"m doing is talking to you now. Is just me talking really givng you such a strong reaction...?"

"Is that really so surprising?" He asked in return. "I mean, I like talking to you. I think it would be a good shot, if things were different." After all, she was trying to convince them both that she loved her man.

"It's..very surprising." She laughed softly. "I like talking to you, too, but that doesn' mean I want to jump into bed with a man I've never even seen..." If things were different. He meant if she was single...

"I could send you a selfie if you want. All my clothes are on, promise. No funny business." He added quickly.

"No-" She was too quick o speak, heart pounding. "No. No, you don't have to send me anything. Remember. No...no texts. Okay?" She bit her lip, feeling the panic that he might message her and shifting in the water. AFter a moment, she cleared her throat. "I...Hyunwoo is calling. I have to go."

After a few weeks, Tae had fallen into an odd sort of rhythm. For some reason or another, every afternoon either he or Sunmi would find a reason to call. Mostly it was venting, but he found it was his favorite part of the day. He didn't have to hide, to be perfect, to be anything but himself with her...and he was quickly growing attached. She was becoming a closer friend than any of the ones he had known for years. Finding his thoughts moving to her once again as he sat trying to find something good to watch, he picked up his phone and flicked to the familiar contact, holding it to his face as it rang.

Weeks had gone by..she found herself talking to Taehyung every day. She would walk out of her office or if she was with Hyunwoo she would leave the room to talk with him. Hyunwoo had thought she was cheating for a brief moment before she insisted it was just a client she was speaking with. He seemed to beliee her now, she wasn't really...doing anything wrong was she? Still..she felt a little guilty about the situation. As her phone began to ring, she debated answering it. She stared at the number and just as it was on the last ring, she bit her lip and pulled it to her ear, answering the call and finding herself unable to keep from smiling brightly. "Mr. Kim Taehyung. You're late."

"Why, was I interrupting some special private time, Sunmi?" He couldn't hold back a laugh, flipping through the shows he could watch. "I finished a drama and I don't know what to do now. Nothing sounds good." He added, whining slightly. "And I've got another week before the next episode of the other one I'm watching comes out."

"Private time? You know my private time is reserved for Hyunwoo and our special little phone calls." She laughed softly, shaking her head. "What drama? Was it good?" With a grin, hearing the whine, she gave a soft giggle. "You could go get dinner somewhere. Or go to a play. You could go try to pick up a girl in the shopping center by your house. You could....work on your music. You told me you like music, right?" With another laugh, she leaned back in her chair. "Oh no. A whole week..whatever will you do."

"Scarlet Heart. I loved it, but now I need some serious comfort." He laughed softly. "I don't want to think, I just want to do something." He added at he thought of working on his music. "A walk sounds nice..." Then, the thought coming to him for the twentieth time since their third phone call, he added, "...Want to go on a walk with me?"

She laughed softly, nodding as he mentinoed her favorite drama before she heard the last. She tensed, knowing he didn't mean this question in the way she had meant it in the past. He wanted to go on a walk with her...in person. He wanted to meet. It wasn't a good idea. She couldn't meet him. "I mean...we...we go on walks all the time. I'm outside, you're outside...we walk and we talk on the phone. You...you want to do one of our walks again?"

"Well, that...or..." Should he back up? Should he try to cover up his desire to see her face to face once again? His mouth betrayed his thoughts, speaking before he could stop himself, "In person, I mean. Meeting somewhere...maybe going for coffee. Talking face-to-face."

"..Taehyung, I...I mean...we..I think the reason we get along so well, the reason...we...we have such a great relationship is..." she trailed off. "It's because we don't know each other, it's because of the fact that we've never seen each other. Don't you...I-I mean..aren't you worried that...that meeting would ruin it?" She bit he rlip, wondering if he had really thought it through. Why did he want to meet her? Why wasn't he happy with things the way they were now?

"I don't know, would it ruin anything?" He asked in return, running his fingers through her hair. "I like being your friend. What we have is great. I'd just...I don't know. Like to put a face to the name sometime. It's more likely that everything will stay the same if we meet, just...talking without a phone between us." Then, after a moment, he added, "If you don't want to, we can go on one of our normal walks."

"I..don't know, Taehyung..." She bit her lip, thinking his words over. "I mean...I...I'm worried. What happens if we meet and suddenly..suddenly we start acting like different people? What happens if we start using our usual masks with each other? What happens if we really...do ruin it? I don't want to lose what we have. It's...the most important relationship I have. I-I mean...aside from Hyunwoo." At the mention of Hyunwoo, her phone buzzed. Pulling it away from her ear just long enough to read the text that she received, she saw that Hyunwoo was canceling their dinner plans..again. She knew where hew as, what he was doing... He was with her. After another moment, she spoke, voice soft. "...where do you want to meet?"

"I don't want to use a mask around you." He insisted softly. "I mean, you're my closest friend. If you don't want to, that's totally fine--" He broke off as he heard the last, frowning at the change in her voice. "How about the river? By that little market by the park. ...Are you all right, Sunmi?"

She had been so careful. She'd never let on that Hyunwoo cheated...she didn't want Taehyung knowing that little fact. But the burning in her chest was driving her wild. He said he didnt' want to use a mask. The river...the market...she knew exactly where he was referring to. After a moment, she nodded, putting on the voice she always used to reassure him she was happy. "I'm fine. Everything's fine. I just...think it's time, too. I wnat to see your face, I want to...to see if you're as handsome as yousound." She laughed weakly, nodding. "...I'll meet you there. I"ll head out now." Not giving him a chance to question her more or to say anythign else, she hung up the phone, threw one a simple but stylish outfit and a jacket before heading toward the river. It took about ten minutes to get there, and when she got out and walked down the water's edge, smiling and waving a few small children there with their families, she started to feel uneasy. Just because Hyunwoo cheated didn't mean she should act on this. She wasn't exactly cheating...but she was meeting a man that lit a fire in her she hadn't felt in years. She was meeting a man she knew Hyunwoo would kill her for meeting. Decision made, she lifted her phone to her ear and dialed Taehyung's number again, waiting for him to answer the phone before she spoke softly. "...I...I don't think we should meet."

He had meant to press a little, to try to get past her obvious defenses before sighing softly, moving to his closet. Sweats wouldn't cut it. He wanted to look good. Pulling on a v-neck shirt and jeans, he pulled his own jacket on before making his way to the place he had described--only a few minutes' walk from his apartment. Unaware that he stood just a little down the sidewalk, facing away from her a few short feet away, he picked up his phone, greeting fading on his lips as he heard her speak. "You...changed your mind, huh?" He asked, giving a faint smile. "Now that we're both out, we can just walk like we usually do."

(Oh god...a v neck xDDD))

"I'm sorry. I just...I'm worried that this will just r-" she cut off, realizing the voice she heard wasn't just on her phone...it was far too close. She'd heard the real voice... AS she turned, facing a man taht stood looking almost lost, seeing his back, wide shoulders, hand on his phone pressed to his ear, she bit her lip. Was this him...? After a long moment of debate, she lowered her phone away and approached the man. "E-excuse me. Could you...could you tell me...where the nearest convenience store is...?" Was hse about the see the man, face-to-face, the voice she'd been talking to for over a month...?

((You know you love it. XD))

Mumbling for the woman on the line to hang on, he turned to see the single most beautiful woman he had ever seen. The dazed look crossed his face for a moment before he gave a small smile, nodding. "I, uh. I think there's one on the corner over there, miss..." But that voice sounded familiar. Too familiar. Looking at the phone in her hand, he frowned in confusion before asking, "...Sunmi?"
