"....Should you? Yes." She nodded, eyes moving to meet his. Her heart jumped and she found his touc hwas actually...comforting. She took a deep breath. "Do I want you to...? That's...a completely different question.."

"Do you want me to stop, then...?" He asked, a soft smile pulling at his lips as his fingers moved over her cheek once again. It seemed that he was doing some good, he thought. At the very least he hoped that this was more helpful than harmful.

She shook ehr head slowly at his words, leaning into his touch before she managed to find her words again. "...No. No, Idon't want you to stop. I...I missed this, missed...missed you. Your warmth..." She bit her lip. "...I shouldn't let you do this, though."

"If it's helping you, I absolutely should do this." He replied, pulling her into a proper hug. Resting his cheek against hers, he allowed a small moment of weakness. As long as they were being honest... "I missed this, too. I've wanted to be close to you since the moment I left the studio..."

As he pulled her into his arms, she felt her body relax. She felt relief wash over her and all of her stress started to fade away. She lifted a hand to his chest, leaning into his touch, eyes falling closed as she savored the feel of his cheek against her own. She took a deep breath, surprised to hear her voice shake, the effort to hold back tears was much harder than she'd expected. "if you're not careful..I'll think you want something more than just the casual fling we had..."

"We can talk about that later. Right now all I want is for you to be okay." He replied softly, running his fingers through her hair in an attempt to soothe whatever tears were threatening to spill. "I'm not going anywhere...I won't leave you again."

"For how long? You...can't expect me too believe you'll always be here, you'll look after me, keep me in control..." still, she loved the feel of his hand in her hair. She needed him...more than she'd ever needed anything in her life. "Eventually you'll leave.." everyone did. And when he found the next ass he wanted to chase, she'd be forgotten. She was, after all, just a fling. Wasn't he...flung?

"Why would I? I care about you. I want to make sure you're all right." He mumbled, his free hand brushing his fingers up and down her spine in an attempt to soothe her nerves.

As she felt his fingers move over her spine, she relaxed against him. After a moment, she turned her head, face burying into his neck s she took a deep breath. "For now... but if you care so much about me so quickly, you can stop caring about me just as quickly, Hoseok.."

"You don't know that." He replied simply. "Stop worrying about how soon you might scare me off and focus more on taking care of yourself, okay?" He couldn't hide the fact that his heart jumped a little as she shifted, feeling her breath against his skin and noting just how intimate this situation really was.

"So you admit thati could scare you off..." she laughed weakly, eyes closing as her hand moved to rest just over his heart. After a moment, she took a shaky breath. "...I'm not..supposed to care about anyone, you know. It's dangerous when I do. I lose control, people get hurt. People die..I've...I've killed, Hoseok."

"You'd have to turn into some giant scorpion or something to manage it, but it's not impossible." He joked, chuckling softly. At the last, he gave a soft sigh, fingers still moving over her spine. "That doesn't matter to me. I've killed on purpose...you have on accident. I know that you can learn to control this. I know that you can be powerful, be strong and confident...to live your life in happiness instead of fear."

Looking up at him, eyes finding his, she moved her hand to his cheek. She brushed his hair back gently, knowing she didn't deserve to, she didn't deserve any of the comfort he brought her...but she couldn't push him away. After a moment, she leaned forward, lips brushing his in a soft, nearly desperate kiss, filed with the fear, the self-hatred, and the need for him to be near. She knew why she was kissing him..it was the panic, the freakout, thr grief...she knew she'd regret it when she calmed down. Maybe that's why she didn't want to calm down...

He was surprised by the shift, but it took no time at all for him to return the kiss. He wanted to help her. He wanted to take away all of her fear, all of her self-loathing...and if this was helping her, he was happy to do it. Though, of course he was more than happy to kiss her for any reason, even the selfish ones. He couldn't deny that he had missed her touch as much as he did her conversation. Bringing his hand up to her cheek, he held her close, humming softly against her lips.

Feeling his touch, feeling him return her kissgave her no small amount of surprise. Her fingers moved to his cheek, then his neck, pulling him just a little closer. After a moment, she found herself wondering if he was kissing her out of pity, because he didn't know what else to do. Did he fell responsible for her...?

His fingers moved into her hair, keeping her close as he deepened the kiss. His free hand rested on her side, fingers tracing against her shirt. It was so easy to lose himself in her, to pour all of his emotions into every touch, hoping that it would offer whatever help he could give.

After a few moments, she felt her shaking stop. Her panic faded, and she suddenly found herself...feeling. She pulled back, breaking the kiss, cheeks flushed softly. Her eyes were closed for a moment longer, white streak falling to hide her eyes from his view as she took a shaky breath and slowly oepned her eyes to look up at him. "...what the hell are we doing, Hoseok...?"

"I don't know..." He replied, a little breathless from the force of the kiss as he tried to gather his wits. "I just know...that it feels right." Brushing her hair from her eyes, he gave a soft smile. "How do you feel?"

Feeling his hand, she leaned into his touch. Her eyes moved to his and she bit her lip, wondering why he wasn't pulling away. Why he wasn't disgusted or afraid of her. Why he was touching her hair when that alone was proof of the monster she was.. She took a deep breath, nodding slowly. "How do I feel?" She looked up at him, biting her lip. "Would you think I'm even more of a monster if I say...I feel...much better?"

"I don't think you're a monster at all." He promised, pressing his lips to her forehead with a soft smile. "I'm happy you're feeling better. I'm even happier that I'm able to help."
