"I can help you." He offered quietly, covering her hand with his own without thinking. "Or...there's a small apartment I keep upstairs. You can use it until you get on your feet." It was his secret hideout, his safe haven...but he was startlingly okay with her using it in his stead. He had no heat to get away from, after all...and she wouldn't be there for long.

AT the touch of his hand, her heart jumped again. She felt her fingers tremble under his touch. He was so warm now...his hand was so much larger than hers..and sh could feel his heart beat under her ingers. Her own heart raced even faster. "I..can't accept that from you. I can find somewhere to stay for the night. You don't have to worry about me." Did he worry about her? Was it jsut her imagination...? "You've already done so much for me. And...I know you like your privacy, your...your secrets."

(We still need to get him to beat the fuuuuuuu...also we need hansol and Bjoo again. XD)

((Yes and double yes. XD))

"I have an apartment a few blocks away I stay in now that the studio shut down." He reminded her with a shake of his head. A small smile played across his lips despite himself. "The offer is there...and it would help you until you got onto your feet again. I know...you've spent a lot of your money on that deadbeat."

He genuinely seemed concerned for her. As her eyes moved to his again, her heart pounding in her chest, she took a deep breath. God, she wanted to kiss him so badly... "okay. This...this apartment upstairs. I'll take it. I...god, I wish I could get my heart to stop freaking out." She gave a nervous laugh, dropping her gaze.

"Is your heart freaking out because of me?" He asked with a small smile, a genuine smile, fingers brushing over her cheek without thinking. "Is there anything you need to get from your place? I could go with you if you don't feel comfortable going back alone." Not that the man could get up to do anything physically, but that wouldn't stop him from saying anything horrible to her...

As she felt his fingers, she shivered. For a moment, only a moment, she leaned closer to him As if to kiss him before she stopped herself again. When he smiled at her like that, all she wanted was to be closer. "My heart feels like it'll burst because of you..." As he mentioned her place, she bit her lip. "I can get it on my own..." As much as she hated being alone with him now, the things he said to her... "If you go, it'll only confirm his suspicions in his mind." She couldn't remember if she'd told him she'd been accused of cheating or not...

"He thought you were cheating? After the way he treated you? I'm honestly surprised you never did." He sighed, brushing his thumb along the line of her jaw. "If you want help, or even moral support...I'll be there. He won't dare try to say anything to you if I talk to him." After all, the man was unaware of just who had orchestrated his accident. A few words and that scum would be paralyzed in mind as well as body.

"He thought I was cheating from the start. Which only makes me suspect he might have been instead." She shook her head, freezing as he moved his thumb over her jaw. Her heart jumped into her throat and she took a shaky breath. Her cheeks flushed darkly as she looked up at him. AFter a moment, she offered a weak smile. "You don't want to go with me, trust me. You would hate it there, you don't want to meet him." She shook her head. "I'll just get in and get out. I'll try to ignore everything he says. I only have a few things I want to take, after all." It would only make her want to curl up and die for a few minutes.

"Can I at least stand outside...for moral support or something?" He asked next, feeling that unfamiliar bump in his chest once again. "That way if you need me there, I'm only a minute away."

"Are you worried that I'll go back to him if I go alone..?" She laughed softly, seeing what looked almost like concern in his eyes. She watched him closely, fingers moving over his cheek gently. what was she doing? he hadn't given her permission to touch him like this... "You...really want to go there with me? I mean...you would really hate it there." Plus, she hadn't told him how terrible she'd been living, not just with the man, but the area, the state of her apartment, all of it.

"No. I'm just worried that he's going to do anything he can to hurt you." He shook his head with a faint smile, leaning into her touch with a gentle sigh. "What matters is that you won't have to live there anymore."

She bit her lip, knowing that her ex would only anger this beautiful man. She took a deep breath. "Come with me...?" Her voice was hardly above a whisper. Her fingers brushed the side of his neck gently. She was far too....comfortable with him.

"Of course. Whatever you need." He gave a soft smile, bringing one of his hands to cover hers. Threatening that scum might help him feel better, he thought in passing. It was definitely worth the trip.

As she felt his larger hand cover hers, her heart jumped. She flushed softly and her eyes met his again. After a moment, she tangled her fingers with his. "I just have a few clothes. Everything else he can keep, I don't want it or the memories that come with it."

"A blank slate...you can go anywhere you want from here." He pointed out with a smile. New beginnings...what better time to kill her than at the threshold of a new life? Everything was so much more beautiful in the beginning, after all. He had to fight to remember things like this. He couldn't afford to forget.

She smiled, watching him for a moment. Deciding she might as well make one more mistake tonight, she leaned up, pressing a soft, almost frightened kiss to his lips. As she leaned back, she bit her lip, eyes on the ground again. "Shall we go, then?"

He melted into her touch, returning the kiss gently as his hand cupped her cheek. "Lead the way..." He breathed with a soft smile, catching her hand in his free one.

Lead the way, he'd said. She flushed softly, surprised by how he'd reacted to her kiss. The way he'd touched her cheek made her skin tingle. She wished she was brave enough to offer a better kiss than the two quick pecks she'd given him...but she'd said only one more mistake for that night. Nodding wiht a small, almost dazed smile, she pulled him to the door, not thinking about how cold it was outside or how she still wore the dancing clothes he'd loaned her. As they stepped outside, a breeze rushed over her and she shivered again. "Oh...it's cold."

Asking her to wait for a moment, he ducked back inside to grab his jacket from the chair he had laid it across, coming back to offer it to her. The heavy black leather would do better against the chill than what she was wearing... "Here. This should help."

As he brought the jacket to her, her cheeks flushed softly. She smiled softly, fingers tangling into the leather as she looked up at him again. "..thank you, Jongup." It was the first time she'ddropped the formalities when she addressed him. After a moment, she started down the sidewalk. "The apartment isn't far..."
