Smiling at the informal way she addressed him, he wound an arm around her back as he followed her lead, the motion far more natural than it should have been. "This isn't a great neighborhood. You live around here?"

"Jongup-si, you really think it's appropriate to put your arm around me like that?" She coudn't deny the way her heart raced at his touch. God...she really liked him. This was bad. After a moment,s he gave a soft laugh. "I lived...around here. Not anymore, remember?"

"It's no less appropriate than being so close to you before." He shrugged lightly, not seeing any problem with it. "Right. But it's...not the best place to be. I know, my apartment is a few blocks in the other direction."

"It's a little different. We're in public now." She laughed softly, stopping as she felt something wet land on her cheek, she looked up. It was starting to snow. That was....romantic. With a soft flush, she held a hand out to catch a flake. "It's...snowing."

"Doesn't matter to me. Who cares who sees, you're the only one I care about." He shrugged lightly, following her gaze to see the soft snowflakes against the night sky. "...It is." That was odd. Like a scene out of a drama. But, he reminded himself firmly, he was the villain in this story. Despite himself, he reached out, mirroring her in catching a few snowflakes on his palm.

"i highly doubt I'm the only one you care about..." Still, hearing him say he cared about her at all made her heart jump. She flushed softly, turning her gaze to his as a snowflake landed on her cheek. "I've never really liked the snow before... Now i can't remember why. It's ... So pretty."

"You never liked it? Why's that?" He asked, raising an eyebrow. At the last, he shrugged lightly, fingers brushing across the small of her back. "No one in this city matters to me. They don't give a shit about me, and I don't about them...but you're different."

"Because it's cold and it's lonley and it reminded me too much of my miserable life." She laughed weakly, shaking her head before shivering at the fel of his fingers on her back. She looked up at him, cheeks flushing softly. "But...it doesn't seem so bad right now. You know?"

"I always thought it was...kind of a new beginning. It always snows around the new year, covering everything in white, a layer of cold beauty over the ugliness of the world. It's quiet and...kind of intimate in a way." He tilted his head, unaware that he was speaking thoughts that he never shared with anyone.

"Intimate...? It really is...beautiful. A new beginning...I like that." Her cheeks flushed softly, leaning into him as the snow picked up just a little. There was no wind, it was just...perfect. As her gaze moved to his, she offered a small smile. "You're going to go inside with me, right?"

"Of course. I won't let you face that thing alone." He gave her a small smile of his own, walking just a little closer to her as his arm moved to slide around her waist.

" Thing?" Was he calling her situation a thing...or her ex? With a flush, she felt his arm around her waist and she looked up at him again. AFter a moment, her fingers moved to his, holding his hand to her hip. "You're acting so...familiar with me..."

"Is that a problem? This just...feels natural to me." He shrugged at her statement, pulling her in to his side with a widening smile.

As he pulled her closer, her cheeks flushed softly. She glanced up at him again, stopping so that they weren't walking. The snow fell on her head, her cheek, dusting over her shoulders. After a moment, she moved her fingers up, brushinghis hair back from his face. "I love the blue, you know. It..looks really good."

"Yeah?" He asked, surprised by the movement and doubly so by her beauty in the light of the streetlamp overhead. Leaning into her touch, he added, "I was thinking about changing it...but if you like it so much I'll keep it for a while. It's my favorite look i've tried so far..."

It just... Suits you. It's a mysterious color, but also a color for royalty. I don't know..." Her fingers shifted to brush his cheek as her own flushed softly. "It's hard to explain... And i sound stupid when i try...but i really like it."

"Royalty? I like the sound of that." He couldn't hide a wider, more sincere smile as he caught her hand in his, holding it to his skin. "I get what you're trying to say. I'm pretty flattered, actually."

As he caught her hand, she realized for the first time just how little she really knew of him. The way he touched her, the way he held her... A part of her wondered if he really was the killer she was after... "Then... You're welcome..." For a moment, snow falling between them, she didn't care if he was. She just wanted to stay in his arms...

Entranced by her nearness, he was only faintly aware of the chill, the falling snow making him feel as if they were the only two in the world. "You fit...perfectly in my arms..." He mumbled without thinking, a small smile on his lips.

AS she heard his words, her cheeks flushed softly. She smiled, fingers brushing his cheek as best they could has he held her hand to his skin. Her free hand moved to the side of his neck, brushing gently. "Then I guess it's a good thing that's the only thought I have right now...staying in them, I mean."
