The slight bump into him didn't even phase him. He was so lost staring at the cafe and its beauty and that very well kept figure sitting at the table he was about to approach.
But he turned his head and those chocolate eyes met a soft, blonde haired beauty before him. He instantly flashed a warm smile at her, whoever she was, and chuckled light under his breath.
"No worries at all, m'lady." He put that Brazilian accent to work to bring about the surprise and charm a Latino was known for. Hell, his mother used to tell him all the time;
"Sergio love," she'd always begin. "You have a natural gift at your disposal. I can already see it; You have the Latin Charm." He could hear her voice perfectly in his mind.
"Know when to use it, and when to hold it in. Won't have you end up like all these other men that have died trying too hard. No no no."
The light flashback was a pleasant memory to have. But he focused back on the woman in front of him who was very apologetic and seemed very shy.
He also felt like she had something go on. Very worried or something akin to that?
Sergio could not put his finger on it, and it would be very rude to just start prying information, personal information at that, about a complete stranger. No no, first things first. He would do things the way a sailor of his class would do, also the Neves way.
"If anything I should apologize for just stopping in the middle of the walkway. How silly of me. Guess my sea legs are still tried and true. Land legs still have to come back around."
A hand slipped behind his head and he gave a jovial chuckle, flashing his pearly smile again, the glint reflecting in his eyes as well.
"Wow, you're into men Sergio and you're really laying it on thick for this flower."
The words ran through his head, as he made an internal face that would be the equivalent of a pondering face. Then again, he saw no reason to not hide his charm... Maybe it was too flirtatious? Too much? Why was he questioning this choice so much! Gah!
"Err, anyway. Sorry. I'm uh... I'm sure it's painfully obvious I'm not from this region at all!"
He wore a slightly embarrassed expression on his face, chuckling as he put his hands in his pockets and leaned forward from the laughing. He fixed his posture but kept his hands in his pockets.
He really was thinking he was being a dunce now. Wow, all those years of pirating and going from Port to Port, and town to town and you can't even talk to people normally? Maybe it didn't help that he had just left Sao Paulo and was speaking his naitive tongue, Brazilian Portuguese, the whole time he was home.
Well, no time like the present to adapt to the new environment. He was here to stay, and nothing was gonna stop him or dissuade him to leave. Not in his nature anyway!
"Oh, haha! Sorry, I'm just uh... Nervous I guess? First time in a new city. New faces. Have to remember how to speak English-" He never forgot... But he had to re-adjust to speaking it. "I must say though, I have no complaints about how we have met! In fact, I quite welcome this change of pace.
The Latino flashed another soft smile and lightly chuckled. He definitely was outgoing for being a pirate... Might have been why he was taken on by so many crews to begin with; The accent. The charisma. Use of his naitive language. Yep. Your favorite pirates favorite pirate. Though he couldn't say he was the best pirate you've ever seen. That was someone else's title...And there was quite the bastion of the title too. Well...
"Again, I'm so sorry..." He gathered himself rather fast and relaxed his pose, and gave a rather charming grin, and allowed a shine to emit from those chocolate eyes.
"Sergio Neves; Charmed m'lady"
