"You want to talk? I just tried to kill you because you make me feel alive and you want to talk to me." He couldn't hide his incredulity, pulling his jacket closer around him amidst the chill. After a long moment, he shook his head. "Fine. This night can't get any more fucked up than it is."

As a particularly cold burst of air washed over her, she winced in pain. It was so cold, it hurt...and she was wearing a t-shirt that was torn and dirty from the struggle and a pair of shorts that she'd put on for a quick work out when she had to come outside. It was only supposed to be for a moment. She shivered again, wincing once more. "I want...t-to know..w-why. Why did you d-do it..?"

"I thought it would fix everything. That I would stop hurting so much if you were gone." He shrugged, seeing her wince with a deepening frown and slipping his jacket from his shoulders. He had ruined everything...the least he could do was offer an olive branch of some sort. Holding it out, he made no move to get closer to her, allowing her to choose the distance between them. "Here. You forgot a jacket again; you'll freeze."

"No." She shook her head. "Not me. Why...why did you kill the others? Why did you hunt them...?" She looked up at him, wincing as he held the jacket out, though he didn't move closer. She shivered, shaking her head again. "I'm...I'm f-fine."

"It was fun. The hunt, the thrill...it was what I needed to feel like something more than a ghost. To breathe again." He didn't want to lie to her, knowing that he was going to lose someone that he never had in the first place. "You're not fine. You're in shock, you're hurt...if you don't want to take mine, at least go get your own, soon." He tried with a sigh, still holding the garment out to her.

"So..you killed for...for fun." She couldn't hide the way that bothered her. If there had been a reason, a good reason... "You killed them...to feel alive. And then you tried to kill me...because you were already feeling alive? How does that make sense?" Her eyes moved to meet his, trembling as she struggled to her feet. "You...don't get to worry about me anymore, Jongup."

(so...I'm thinking Police finds out she knows who the killer is. They try to get her to tell them but she can't do it. They attack her and maybe Jongup sees becuse he's been looking after her without her knowing? XD)

((I love this. XD So she sees that the police aren't all that great and Jongup isn't all that bad. XD))

"No...no, I guess I don't." He replied flatly, trying and failing to hide how much that simple statement stung. "It doesn't make sense. None of this has made any sense. I wanted you gone to keep you from hurting me. And killing you hurt more than anything you could do to me. It was a mistake, and nothing I can say will change it."

(YYYEP XD)

"Jongup, I didn't want to hurt you. I was falling in l-" she cut off, voice breaking as she realized what she'd lmost admitted. A thing she could never say now... "You say...trying to kill me was a mistake...do you think that will make it better? That will...make me forgive you? Or are you just trying to get closer to me to find a different way to finish? Was strangling losing it's appeal..? Are you just waiting until I tell the police who you are to finisht eh job, make things omore difficult so you can enjoy a different kind of game with higher risks?"

"No. I don't expect forgiveness." He shook his head, unable to look at her as the burning pain in his chest spread over every inch of his body. "I told you....I won't kill you. And I don't expect you to believe that I'll keep my word until you call the police and they see I'm gone." Out of the country, if he was successful. He had enough saved to get him as far as he needed to go.

She bit her lip, watching him closely. He was a completely different person...he wasnt who she'd thought he was at all.. After a moment, she psoke, voice hardly above a whisper. "...are you going to do it again? Are you goign to keep killing...?"

"...I don't know." He said after a long moment of silence, shaking his head. "I can't say I won't." He wanted to run, to get away from her judgement, her disappointment, her fear.

"If you stayed...if...If I was with you...if I didn't turn you in. Would you kill, then?" If she could save a life...if she had to be with him to save a life...any life, she could do it. Couldn't she...?

"I...can't say. Not out of boredom, I don't think." He shook his head once again. "Maybe someone like your ex...someone that hurts people. Someone beyond redemption."

"So...there's nothing...no way to guarantee you won't kill again?" She shivered, remembering once again the feel of his hands on her, the feel of his touch, his kiss...then the feel of him pinning her to the ground. The pain, the fear, the death she could feel...She shuddered again, taking a smal step back from him. "...I have to tell them, Jongup. I...I have to."

"I....I understand." He knew she would have, but that didn't make it hurt less. "I'm sorry. Like I said...you'll never see me again. I can't stand the thought of hurting you again...and I can't stand getting caught. You probably already know that I won't go alive. If I'm caught, I'll make sure they kill me." Life caged would be worse than death, he knew. Taking another step back at the sight of her own, he added, "In another time...if I were different, if this were different...I hope we could have been friends." It was the best he could say after all he had done to ruin what he never wanted to gain.

"We couldn't have." She shook her head, eyes moving to the ground. 'In any other time, in any other place you'd still be a murderer." She looked up at him, unable to hide the fear she still felt. "And...I can't think of anything worse than that."

The words hurt him more than he expected, flinching a little as if she'd hit him after all. For a moment, he wished that she had. "...I guess you're right." He breathed, shaking his head before offering her a weak smile. "I hope you live well, Inna." It was the only thing he felt he could say, the only thing that wouldn't sink the knife in his chest any deeper. He was a monster, he told himself firmly. Monsters didn't have hearts to be broken. Turning at last, he hunched a little against the cold, starting out of the park. He had a lot of work to do before the police responded to her turning him in...

She bit her lip, watching him walk away. For a moment she wanted to call him back, to beg him not to go, to beg him to be the better man, the man he'd pretended to be. For amoment, she wanted to run into his arms, to make him promise he wouldn't kill, to stay with her... Her heart was breaking, her heart was shredding into tiny pieces..and there was absolutely nothig she could do about it. As she took a shaky breath, she wrapped her arms around herself again. She had no where to go..she was alone, homeless...and she had no one.

((Gotcha covered. XD))

Jongup had tried to leave her alone. Really, he did. But he had known that she wouldn't return to the apartment he had given her, or to the man that had made her miserable for so long. So he kept tabs on her, as much as he could. Not having any friends in the city meant that he was alone in his efforts, leaving small gifts here and there to make sure that she would be all right--a few hundred won to be found in the street, paying a stranger to deliver groceries to her door in the semblance of a mistake they didn't want to correct...odd things to make her life easier.
