Giving a soft hum at his words, she shifted closer, leaning as close to him as possible as she heard him say the last. She was too far gone to really realize he was speaking, to realize she was responding, but as he said he didn't want to be alone again, she spoke as well, voice hardly above a whisper. "...I don't...want to be alone again..."

(Okay...but I love that he called her princess... XD)

((Thought you might. Moon Moon got away from me there. XD))

Hearing that statement, changed just slightly enough that he knew she wasn't repeating him, he felt something in his heart swell and ache at the same time. "You won't be." He breathed at last, brushing a loose strand of hair from her eyes. "I promise."

At his reassurance, as the feel of his fingers in her hair, she felt the last of her waking mind slip away until she was floating, dreaming of sadistic smiles and flirty comments, touches she'd never had and had no idea she'd craved.

Watching her sleep for several minutes, he was surprised to find that the gentle hum of the television, the comfort he felt in this place he didn't know, was more than he expected. It wasn't long before he leaned his head against the cushion behind him, fingers still resting in her hair as his free hand tangled its fingers with hers. He was accustomed to insomnia or disturbing dreams, but his sleep was nothing but peaceful, full of warm smiles and gentle touches, a laugh that he couldn't live without.

((Ah yes. XD))

Jongup didn't move an inch until the sun rose, light filtering through the windows and crossing his face. Frowning and scrunching his nose, he turned his head slightly, fingers tightening on the hand he held before his mind came to awareness enough to know that he wasn't alone. His eyes shot open, looking down to the woman in his lap before he relaxed as the memories returned. He was surprised that she had stayed so near, he thought, studying her face intently now that he had a chance. She really was beautiful...

As she felt the hand tighten on her own, she started to wake. Shifting a little on the couch, in his lap, she gave a soft noise almost like a whimper as if to tell him to let her sleep. Her lips pulled into a small pout and she mumbled something about crazy bastards as her fingers tightened on his as well. After a moment, she gave a soft sigh, body relaxing again, fever gone.

He couldn't keep from smiling at the endearing display, he watched her still, wondering if he was the crazy bastard she was dreaming about. Absently, he moved his free hand to tuck a loose strand of hair out of her face as gently as he could.

Feeling his fingers in her hair was enough to startle her awake. Her eyes flew open, almost in a panic. Before she could realize where she was or what she was doing, she had grabbed a knife she'd kept concealed from her ankle and was straddling the man, having the blade pressed to his throat. She hadn't used these skills, this defense...this weapon...since the last man she'd killed. Eyes widening as she realized what she was doing, she froze, unsure what to do next. He'd likely have questions..the way she moved was nothing short of professional...

Startled by the shift, he froze as she moved over him, feeling the blade dig into his throat as he swallowed hard. That was frightening. And incredibly hot. Eyes flashing, he felt a smirk pull at his lips. "That's...something a killer would do, princess..." He offered at length. "Where'd you learn that?"

Keeping the blade at his throat, she felt her own heart pounding. One hand rested on the couch beside his head, the other holding the knife a little too close to him, accidentally cutting into his skin just slightly. As she saw the flash of his eyes, the smirk on his lips, she tensed. Something a killer would do? But she wasn't a killer...not anymore. And if he learned anything about her past...he'd never leave her alone...Though she couldn't deny she' dmissed the thrill....the chase, the blood...Her hand trembled lightly. No. She'd gotten past this, she'd even gotten help for it. She was a different person now. "I used to take a self-defense class." Except that hadn't been defense..it had been predatory.... Still, as she sat on his lap, backside against his hips, her face only inches from his, she had to force herself to breathe, to think about what she was doig. "I...forgot you were here and was wondering who was in my house. It was that fight or flight instinct. Don't look too much into it, Mr. Moon..."

"That's more habit than self defense." He breathed, smile never fading. "That's an attack...and absolutely fascinating." Letting his hands rest on her thighs, he found he didn't mind the slight sting of the blade at his throat. Feeling a small trail of blood slip from beneath the knife and run down his neck, he added, "This is...one hell of a wakeup call..."

Remembering once again that he'd said he thought she could kill him if she was desperate enough, she wondered if he thought she'd try now. She couldn't ignore the feel of his hands on her thighs, the warmth of his skin on hers, she was suddenly aware that she'd worn shorts to bed last night. Her heart was pounding as she watched him, taking a deep breath after a moment, and speaking softly. "Aren't you...going to push me off of you?" Why was he so comfortable..with a knife at his throat...? Or was he really just that crazy?

"I'm curious to know what you'll do." He admitted, tilting his head slightly and feeling the movement make the sting at his neck a little worse. It made his heartbeat jump in a way that he hadn't felt in entirely too long.

"I could kill you...easily...and you'd let me?" She looked down at him, heart pounding through to the very tips of her fingers. She could hear the humming in her ears, the voice whispering that she should kill him after all the torment he'd given her...that she could enjoy it, one more time...

"Everyone's gotta go sometime. Would you do it?" He asked in return, watching something like conflict cross her face. The familiar battle of the right thing to do and the impulsive need to put out the flame sputtering beneath her. A simple movement, a shift of her weight, even...and it could be over. But did she have enough hatred for him to do it? Or enough bloodlust to give into?

"If...If I had to." She spoke, voice barely above a whisper as she watched him under her. He was waiting, wondering what she'd do. He was thinking he knew all about her, she was sure... After a long moment, she pushed herself off of his lap, stumbling a little as she found herself breathing heavier than she was sure was necessary as the knife clattered to the ground. She wasn't that person anymore. And he wouldn't remind her of that person...not again. "...I'm not sick anymore. I don't have a fever. You can...you can go."

"Are you sure?" He asked, making his way to his feet, not bothered in the least by what had passed between them. "Rolling around like that might make it worse if you're not totally well." His neck still bled, dampening a small spot of the collar of his shirt as he stretched languidly.

"I'm sure." She turned, making her way back toward her bedroom to avoid his gaze, to avoid seeing him at all. What had just happened was a mistake...she wouldn't make it again. "You...have been in my house long enough."

"Ooh, harsh. I didn't mean to figure out part of your dark secret." He pointed out, watching her with a raised eyebrow. "What happened to the nicer conversations we were having yesterday?"
