this had to go fast. the sun had gone down already and the darkness had settled in, meaning there wasn't all too much time for xiu lan to do this before having to return to the academy. even though he wasn't the type of person to hold onto hopes and the likes, something inside of him still held onto the belief that doing this was helping him in a way. that doing it over and over again was going to at least temporarily get rid of all this tension, all this sadness, all this anger and maybe even the loneliness.

he turned around again, making sure there was nobody. it was a sketchy street in the first place, and the alleyway xiu lan had found the trashcan was dark enough to hide him from plain sight, hopefully for at least long enough to watch this unfold and then leave. his hands were shaking, not from fear, but from the excitement of knowing about what was going to happen, finding the way into the pocket of his ripped jeans and pulling out a lighter.

xiu lan took a deep breath and, the moment he felt the saliva accumulating in his mouth, lit up the tiny flame and held it onto a paper bag in the trashcan, before moving his hand over the flame, making it grow, before taking a few steps back and just watching. his eyes grew wide as the flame grew larger with every second and only once every few seconds he moved his hands along to lead the fire, so it could indulge everything inside the trashcan and hopefully said can itself soon.

Some people were afraid of the dark. But Seung Hyun was not some people. Whereas they feared the unknown, of the unearthly creatures and monsters that may lurk around the corner ready to attack-- he embraced it. It was then that he would bear his fangs and fight them until he was the last man standing.

But for that, he needed tools.

And so he searched. But little could hold his interest for more than thirty seconds. This had played quite a significant role in his obsession of Seung Jin, but a new hobby was far due. Besides, in a town filled with those with bottomless potential, there was bound to be some fish.

He stumbled upon him on accident. A wrong turn taken somewhere along the way... or was it the right one? Regardless, as he watched the fire grow, the grin on his face began to flourish. The morbid fascination on the boy's face drew him in and his feet moved on their on toward him. "Nice fire you got going there, kid," he tilted his head to the left, the grin had been minimized to a wicked smile instead. "What'd you plan to do with it?"

A shiver went down Xiu Lan's spine as he was torn out of the trancelike state he had almost forcefully put himself into to feel a little more numb than usual, as he turned around, having to face his back to the flame he wanted to hold so dearly. For a moment, he opened his mouth, which turned out to be a bad idea as a drop of saliva rolled down his bottom lip and ultimately his chin. He was mortified, but he didn't move his hands to wipe it away - for the moment, his hands only existed to control the fire.

"Thank you."

His voice was rather quiet, naturally for him and though he was wary of everybody who would potentially approach and try to start a conversation with someone who was burning a trashcan, he figured that remaining quiet would only showcase the extent of his fear, which was something that currently had to be avoided at all costs.

"Burning down the trashcan." He answered politely, his eyes fixed at the man's gaze. This person had something intimidating to them, but from past experience, Xiu Lan knew that he too, had this something. "Why?"

Aside from the drop of saliva that rolled down his chin, there was relatively little changes from the male's actions. His unmoving hands were the key, it seemed, and Seung Hyun wanted to jerk one back and see what he'd trigger. He'd always been more interested in others than himself, to manipulate them and see what he'd receive in return. He could never see his own face distort in fear the way theirs did, and no matter how much he practiced, his laughter couldn't dance like the flickering of a candle. And he especially, couldn't (or rather didn't want to), experiment with cause and effect, to experiment with what made them tick or cry. Not that he wondered any of these yet for the subject in front of him. For now, it was sufficient enough to watch him standing there unyielding to his approach, though seemingly wary.

"You're welcome. Displays of such talent deserve to be praised." There was no doubt that this boy was one of the many that attended the academy. And there was some sort of comfort that Seung Hyun basked in to be with another one of his kind. "Just curious."

His shadow on the wall became larger than the boy's had been as he became increasingly closer. "Is that all you ever do with it?" His curiosity was voiced quietly, though its implications seemed to be larger than life. He wanted to inquire of the darkness that took place within the boy, if it had grabbed hold of him and whether or not it influenced his decisions. There were many things that he'd wanted to know, but he'd have to earn the male's trust first.

A boy like Xiu Lan was everything but used to people talking to him like that. Complimenting him, on things that he didn't even necessarily see as a talent, but much rather as a means to an end. Hell, complimenting him in general. He looked at the man, unsure on whether or not he should even give an answer. Xiu Lan liked keeping to himself, and interaction with people had never been his forte, especially not while setting things on fire and getting into an ecstatic, almost sexual state. "Okay..." was the only word he whispered. Xiu Lan wasn't afraid of the creeps parents warned her kids about. He figured that if it was his fate to get taken by one and never return from that experience, then he would most likely accept it. It was also why he seemed completely unfazed by an adult man watching him burn down a trashcan.

"No, it's not." he replied coldly, turning his head around for a second to see if the flame was still growing, which fortunately, it was. He wasn't sure if he should just elaborate on that. Elaborate on his ability to create clear images out of fire, his ability to move the flames around to take whatever shape he desired. The man seemed to already know that it was his power that ignited the flame in the first place, but Xiu Lan wasn't going to tell him everything just like that.

"What do you do?" he asked him, his face lacking expression just as much as his voice. "Other than engaging in small talk with pyromaniacs."

He's gotten close enough that he was able to raise his hands over the fire, if he so wished. But doing so would call more trouble than it would be worth, especially when he knew next to nothing about him, his personality, nor the extent of his capabilities. So he observed the flames instead, its quality and the speed and strength at which it was devouring the metal trash can that surrounded it. There was a quality in it that was to be admired, especially by people who live their lives in a distinct lack of light. The desire to be like a flame, to draw their attention and retain it, to watch their performance up until its dying breath. And even then, be able to be revived from the smallest of embers. There are people in the world that lacked that quality- and the boy's adoring confession Seung Hyun was able to tell immediately that he was one of those that fell into the category.

"Me? Nothing in particular. I teach during the day and I even look after guys like you in the night." Unlike the poker face the boy was adamant to wear, the elder male had the luxury to shed bits and parts of his mask. With a rather relaxed posture, he drew a cigarette case from within his pocket. Inserting one between his lips, he leaned toward the pyromaniac, full well knowing that he was about to take his chances playing with fire. "Mind lighting me up?"

Would he get burned?

Xiu Lan listened carefully, taking up every little piece of information about the strange man who had so suddenly stepped into what had always been a completely private situation. If he were to murder him on the spot, he at least wanted to be able to know, if just for himself, that he saw through what the stranger was trying to do before it happened. It would've made for one last moment of satisfaction that Xiu Lan so desperately craved day after day. So he was a teacher. Now it wasn't as if the boy paid too much attention to the people in the academy, so the man might as well have been a teacher there. He shook his head, softly. That wasn't necessarily what he meant by his question, but during the timeframe it took the boy to gather enough energy to to correct himself, the stranger already seemed busy readying a cigarette.

After the man asked for a light, the slightest change in Xiu Lan's face was visible. The expressionless, almost mask-like features of the boy moved to showcase something similar to surprise, his eyes opening a little more, and his frowning lips opening ever so slightly as the other's face moved closer to his, seemingly without fear of what flames were capable of. He stopped paying attention to the trashcan, partly to concentrate on the task at hand, partly because there was something exciting about an uncontrolled flame as well. A pale hand moved up to the tip of the cigarette, a bony finger extending, shaking slightly, before a couple of barely noticeable sparks lit the tobacco.

He gulped, finally wiping the saliva off his chin. "What...what I was trying to say...what do you..." Looking around for something to show what he was trying to show, he knealt down and picked up a stray piece of paper. Standing up again, he pointed at it with his free hand, just to have it go up in flames and have the remains flow away. "do?"
