Malikai's eyes met hers as he stopped at another light, his lips turning into an inviting smile. "We're all looking for something, whether at a church or institute. Just keep searching. What I think you're looking for is security. And me-- well I'm looking for someone to keep secure. Whether or not you'll let me, is all up to you." He responded back, tilting his head to the side, his chuckle light but assuring. If anything Malikai always knew what he wanted spot on. When he first met eyes with that black Cadi, he knew it had to be his and 6 months later after intensive work schedules and endless tutoring classes, he decided to get that Cadi. When he wanted that teaching job at the local highschool, he did everything he had to get that job. Now, he wanted Birdy. Everything in him was screaming for the challenge of winning her over.
