"honestly? a little bit," he admitted, but was quick to explain further, "but it's not like i'm not a bit of one myself." he then took a moment to clarify his views on the whole issue in general; "as far as i see it, the only real difference between male and female sexuality is that one is shamed and the other is expected, which is... horrible."

"absolutely," he whispered absentmindedly before opening his eyes and gazing at the path's direction. "it's not too far now," he uttered, taking both of her hands in his before forcing himself a step away from her, finding his focus on getting some well-needed privacy. he had kept his hold onto one of her hands as he continued guiding the way.

"it's um- it's no problem. i don't mind at all," he said in objection to her apology. MONTY

"very insightful," he compliments, "i'm from phoenix. around a few years ago, i hopped on a bus and," he drifts off for a second before giving a shrug, "it got me here." he spared the details on why he left, determined to keep the mood light. his smile wavered the slightest when she hinted at not wanting anything between them past tonight. seeing her had felt like love at first sight and he had been hoping she felt the same for him, but he shook it off; one night with a beauty such as emma was more than enough for him. he answers the question with a nod, wrapping his arm around her, "yeah, i'm single," he said with another small chuckle, not wanting the disappointment to go noticed.

"okay, great, fantastic. let me just grab my guitar and we'll head on out," he informed, reaching down to the chair the case was on and closing it up. he looped the case around one shoulder before taking her hand and leading them to the door, letting go of the hand so he could open it for her.

"no, no, it's fine, i'd love to have you over. that or i could give you a little tour around this part of the city, but there's not that many places still open, so..." he drifted off from his sentence and quickly shifted into a new one; "also i should be making an apology of my own. it was insensitive of me to bring up such a topic without considering how it can be," he took a moment to find the right word before continuing, "it can be troubling for some."

"well really, thank you so much, it's always a pleasure to hear from a fan," especially such a gorgeous one like you, he thought to himself, but held his tongue from there. as she took a more enticing disposition, august couldn't resist letting his eyes wander for a moment, his gaze trailing down her rather exposed, hourglass body. the sight sent a chill down his spine and brought a flush to his cheeks. she really was one of the most beatiful women he'd ever seen. when she spoke, he darted his eyes back up to her, his blush getting brighter at just how obvious he was being. however, when hearing her words, he started to wonder... could it be? was she flirting with him? as she went on, it really started to hit him; she was definitely flirting with him. play it cool, play it cool, you've been there before. he was not playing it near as cool as he would like to admit. his face was a shade of pink that was embarrassing to sport, but thinking about it would just make it worse so he didn't allow himself to, and though he tried with all his might he just couldn't bite down that grin. he let out a small hum of thought as he worked on what to say, finally speaking with gladness that he wasn't stuttering over himself. "thank you again, you really are too kind. the bar's going to be closing for the night soon, but i could walk you home, if you'd like?" MONTY

"moving on from that," he muttered under his breath in annoyance before putting his focus back on emma, letting their eyes meet. "yeah, i haven't had the chance to do much bigger than this yet, but i still have pretty high hopes of getting discovered. oh, and i'm august, it's very nice to meet you." MONTY
