Re: [B&B: Shiloh & Diego]
"I don't offend as easy as it seems you think I do. You can observe whatever you see, and I won't hold it against you. Who's to say you can't read me better than I read myself? I find it's hard to be introspective from so near. Being myopic doesn't add clarity," he mused, his entertained smile saying he was enjoying this particular exchange. He liked to shock and be difficult, sure, but he also liked interacting with people who weren't scared off by someone saying things how they thought them out. A lot of the people he'd encountered in the world were only really comfortable with verbal and physical emojis, smiley faces at the end of sentences to soften the impact.
"How can you know it's not your scene if you haven't been there?" he asked of Second City. "My general rule is to experience things before deciding they aren't for me." He might've noticed some reddening of Diego's face, but Shiloh didn't hold flushing against anyone, and it was crowded in this dining room. Crowds and heat would make anyone go a little red.
He sat forward, chair legs meeting solid ground once more. "I'm not expecting you to put out," he explained. "Let's just call this becoming friends, and we can go do partying your way and see what comes of it." He grinned, the scythe of his smile bordering on a smirk doused in smug. "Who knows, it might be nice to have a friend who I won't have to make excuses with come the morning light." His continuing grin said he wasn't the type of guy to make excuses at all, but maybe that was already clear.
