Do you ever have one of those lazy days where you begin to get sick and tired of staring at the same walls? Micah was beginning to feel antsy and it didn't take long for her to gather up her film equipment and hit the streets. You would think she would hit up one of her friends asking them to tag along, but she enjoyed her solitude even if she was surrounded by others.

She wasn't forced to say anything to anyone besides the bare minimum and could do what she set out to do, which was grab food and then take scenic photographs.

At first, she thought she was going to take pictures of the buildings or unknowing bystanders going about their daily lives, but she soon found herself going further and further away from the bustling town and huge buildings and more towards the grass and scattered trees.

It was a good thing she bundled up with her winter hat and gloves. She was also very grateful for the hot chocolate she ordered for herself on the go. It warmed up her hands and her insides as she walked. It didn't take long for her to find a bench to set her things down to unpack. Soon, she had the high-quality camera that her parents had gotten her for her birthday out and began to shoot.

it's alright if
you run out of breath.

For Jin, most days were filled with a routine unpredictable-ness. And no matter how much of an oxymoron that was, or how unreal it sounded, it was true. Every day, Jin followed the routine of being paranoid. Waiting for the knock on the door, telling him he was suspected of treason. Waiting for the "cold case" of his parents to suddenly not be so cold, and face the press as they lined up at his door, knowing his deepest kept secret. It was routine filled with with anxiety. But what was unpredictable about it was how he would react to such anxiety. Some days, he wouldn't care, going about his day, pretending nothing was wrong. Other days, he was incredibly jumpy, the smallest things alarming him, enough for him to want to stay inside (though the people at his company would never let him).

Lucky for him, his anxiety didn't seem to be too awful today. The small twisting in his gut telling him that everybody knew the truth, or that it was only a matter of time before they found out, was only faint. Barely there. Nevertheless, it was still there, and Jin knew he should probably get out of his house before it got any worse and he felt the need to confine himself there. He bundled up in his black winter jacket, a heavy scarf, some gloves, and hat, and set off. Though it was rather cold out, Jin felt content in just taking a seat somewhere and admiring the scenery. After all, some quiet thinking time was especially helpful with anxiety.

He wandered away from the large, bustling town, and headed towards an area filled with scattered trees and grass. Originally, he had just planned to take a seat under a tree. Keep to himself. But the faint CLICK! of a camera was heard, and Jin suddenly felt his anxiety flare. "Why are they taking pictures? What did they find out? What story is this going to be used for?" Was his immediate thought process. However, the singer felt himself relax immediately when he noticed the girl holding the camera. He could recognize her from where he was standing.

While Micah wasn't the most popular actress, she did have a pretty loyal fanbase that Jin could really appreciate. And though Jin was not in the acting business himself, he had sang on a track for one of her previous movies. Meaning he had attended the movie premiere, and had interacted with her. Though they didn't know each other well, it was still a relief to see her rather than a stranger holding a camera, wondering just why they were taking pictures of him in a pretty plain area doing relatively nothing. "The click of your camera startled me." Jin began as a greeting, approaching her with a small smile, hiding all the anxiety he had felt previously. He knew her to be rather introverted. Just like himself. He didn't expect her to talk much, but he figured he'd still say hello anyways. "It's been a while since we've seen each other. I don't know if you remember me? I sang the main track for your movie a year ago?" He said awkwardly. He was going out on a limb approaching her, and hoping that she even somewhat remembered him so this wasn't completely awkward. Though he was in the media pretty frequently, it would be arrogant to assume everyone knew him and liked him.

M
eandering through the park, she was a little grateful to be by herself as she took a couple of shots, but there was a part of her that wished she had someone along with her. She longed to have a friend that was interested in photography just as much as she was. Then she could take pictures of them and they could take pictures of her; no professionals involved, just her, a good friend, their own clothes, and makeup.

She didn't want anything fancy.

Although, she didn't really know anyone that was in the area. When she went to visit her friend all the way across the continent, they would do all sorts of stuff like that together, but getting together wasn't the easiest thing in the world. Their schedules clashed constantly and they would sometimes go years without seeing each other. Despite that unfortunate fact, it did make their time way more special when they finally did get to meet up.

So until the next time when she plans a trip to visit her bestie, she was forced to take photographs of nature, or if she was feeling really adventurous, unsuspecting people out and about. However, she wasn't sure if she was feeling up for that just yet.

The click of her camera was therapeutic to her. She absolutely adored the sound and even found that it sent a delightful shiver down her spine every once in a while. She began to get so deep in getting the right angle when she heard a voice pop her back into reality.

Micah jumped a little at the intrusion before turning towards the stranger, or at least someone she thought was a stranger. It took her a minute, but when the man informed her of how they knew each other, her eyes lightened up in realization. "Oh, yes!" she exclaimed, "Wow, what are the odds?" she laughed a bit.

"I guess a 'long time no see' is in order." she teased a bit, hoping there wouldn't be any awkwardness on her part. She wasn't one for jumping into conversations so quickly without at least having a chance to rehearse what she was about to say. So far so good at least.

Micah was awkward to say the least, not that Jin could talk; he was perhaps even more so but in a completely different way. He had a certain skittishness about him that was hard to notice. At this point, it was easy to fake not being anxious 24 / 7. All it took was a bright smile and forced verbalization. Trained, violet actors may see through it, but the general public was probably inclined to believe their beloved musician was good in public. Jin was good at lying now, even to himself; he spent so long hiding his identity that he made sure even he would believe it. Now, if someone were to call him Wook-Jin, he'd definitely be very confused for a good few minutes.

But Micah was sweet, and she was obviously trying, no matter how awkward she was. It was appreciated to say the least. So, Jin owed her that same courtesy, and smiled brightly at her. "I know. I wasn't expecting to see you here." Jin began, shifting from his left to right foot, a habit he always seemed to have when he was anxious, but trying to hide it. "We didn't really get to work together much on your movie, since I only did the soundtrack. But I figured I'd say hello anyways." Truth be told, Jin hadn't even been on set that much; maybe twice when they had filmed the scenes his song would be featured in, and he had only met Micah in passing. Maybe a short but friendly, "Hello my name is...Nice to meet you" and then a goodbye. Still, saying hello to her seemed polite to do, considering in some form, they did know each other.

"I can't say I've ever seen anything about photography in your interviews." Jin said, hoping to get a conversation going. It was true; any interviews Micah did, or behind the scenes work on movies, he hadn't actually seen anything about her being into photography. He didn't follow her career intensely, but the lives of violets were generally pretty open and not private, so it was always interesting to learn a new fact about one that got a decent amount of media attention.
