"I feel a little better about that." She nodded with a laugh of her own. At the last, her expression softened, shifting her hand to tangle her fingers with his. "I know the feeling...how long were you thinking this over?"

"Thinking what over exactly?" He flushed softly, looking over at her for a moment before turning his attention back to thr road.

"This. Us. You and me." She cursed herself for the graceless explanation, watching the buildings passing them by. "I mean, up until that dance...we were friends, but there's always a wall there. It felt like you were keeping me at arm's length--I always thought it was because you couldn't trust me yet."

Flushing darker, avoiding her gaze in favor of watching the road, he shook his head. "...since Yoongi first brought you to the house."

"Since--" She broke off, looking over to him with a raised brow. "The first time we met face-to-face? The day I agreed to stay and help you?" She leaned toward him a little, wondering if the flush she saw was a trick of the light or something she had brought about. Then, a slow smile spreading across her lips, she felt her own face heat at the thought. "You...really liked me that much?"

"I liked...your fire, your desire to help. I thought you were...pretty." He flushed a bit darker, biting his lip as he took a turn onto the highway.

"Yeah?" Her flush darkened, amusement rising at his embarrassment. "For what it's worth...I thought a lot of the same things about you. I mean, you were determined, driven...a little bit of a shit, but you made it attractive. And I knew you had a good heart."

"You spent the first ten minutes we really talked trying to embarrass me." She reminded him with a soft laugh. "And then there was the conversation that led up to the dance, that was supposed to be a challenge to see if you could fluster me. And that doesn't cover the pranks you pull on the others."

He gave a soft laugh, a nervous laugh, eyes moving to meet hers for only amoent before returning to the road again. He grinned. "Well... that dance. Did I win, at least? I said I'd make it where you couldn't walk."

"You won in the first minute or two. I had to sit against the wall for a few minutes before I could get up again." She shook her head, flushing darkly at the memory. "I was just too proud to tell you in the moment."

He frowned slightly. "So..I embarrassed the hell out of myself...because you were proud? You put me through that torture because you were proud?" He shook his head, laughing slightly. "You're cruel."

"No, I didn't tell you to stop because I was proud...and I was having...a lot of the same reactions you were." She found she couldn't look at him, focusing on the passing cars on the highway instead. "I didn't want you to stop. Was that cruel?"

His foot faltered, causing the car to lurch a little before turning his gaze to her again, glad for the car's self-driving feature. His brow furrowed, he let his teeth run over his lip for a moment before speaking softly. "You...were...a--I mean..you...You were aroused?" Oh, right. Great. Best way to ask taht question, Namjoon... He flushed. "You didn't..want me to stop?"

Jumping a little as the car shifted, she ducked her head, face burning as she cleared her throat. "To the point, aren't you?" She mumbled without thinking. "But...yeah. Yeah, I was. I thought that part was obvious." She added with a soft, nervous laugh.

"I'm sorry. I just...I don't know how else to ask that." He laughed nevously, still watching her, wondering if she realized how exciting that admission really was. If he could turn her on the way she did to him... His mind trailed off and his cheeks flushed softly. "Forgive me..you don't have a tell like I do.. I was sure..I had upset you, not..not..." turned her on, his mind finished as his cheeks darkened even more.

Glad that he seemed to be just as embarrassed as she was, she couldn't look up, hair falling into her face as she gave another weak chuckle. "N-no...I definitely wasn't upset." For a moment she wondered what was on his mind, now that he knew that he had played her more than she had him.

WIth a small smile, he reached out, brushing her hair back from her face to tuck it behind her ear. Leaning forward, he pressed a soft kiss to her forehead, trying to ignore the way it made his heart race. "You're...adorable when you're embarrassed."

Feeling her heartbeat jump under the touch and hoping for a moment that he couldn't hear, she bit her lip. "Your face is just as red as mine." She pointed out, unable to hide a smile of her own.

"Then I'm adorable, too?" He grinned, turning his attention back to the road to take over driving as his fingers moved to hold hers again, tightening his grip on her hand.
