"no, you didn't... Forgive me if i have." He wasny sorry. He wouldnt say sorry. "I just find it...difficult to stay too far away when you live so close. I hope you're not too angry with me." Looking down at her, he smiled weakly. "Wouod you like me to help you with it? Or...if you'd like yoi can always exchange it for something better if you don't like it."

"Why would I be angry with you?" After all, being so close to him was the only thing she had wanted since she moved in. Looking up to him and realizing with a bump just how close they were, she imagined for a moment just how easy it would be to lean up and close the distance between them. Pushing the thought aside, She added with a smile, "I love it, don't worry. It's beautiful."

"Because i'm keeping you close. What if your wanna-be boyfriend found out.." He laughd weakly, looking down at her with a small smile. After a moment, he cleared his throat and released her. "I just..wanted to get you something nice to thank you for..everything."

"You don't have anything to worry about, believe me." She rolled her eyes at the comment, laughing softly. Missing his warmth as he drew away, she pulled the necklace from the box. "I should be the one thanking you, honestly. After everything you've done for me."

As she pulled the necklace out, he took it gently from her hands before instructing her to turn around. "Let me help." Smiling softly, he moved his fingers over the necklace before slipping it around her neck. Using long fingers, he brushed her hair over her shoulder, leaning just a little closer absently, breath fanning over her skin gently. "You don't have to tahnk me.." His voice was soft, low, almost a purr.

Feeling for a moment that this was a scene straight out of a drama, she held her hair out of the way as he brushed it aside. Unable to fight a shiver at the feel of his breath, biting her lip for a moment as she focused on speaking. "I know that. But I'd like to." She said at last.

"If you'd like to, then do it." He smiled, fingers brushing her skin gently. "Thank me." He couldn't hold back a grin, fingers running down her spine before he let them fall away. He shouldn't be so close, his mind hissed, remembering once again that she was in love with someone else. He took a small step back. "..there."

Fingers brushing over the pendant, the thought came to her mind of kissing him once again, growing more insistent as she turned to face him once again. "You don't look like the jewelry type..." She observed, studying him with a smile. "And anything you want, you get..."

"Not anything." He watched her for a moment, watching the way she toyed with the pendant. After a moment, he offered a weak smile, hair falling into his eyes. "Are you hungry?"

"Not anything? It seems like it." She nodded at the question, passing him a plate. "Can I get a hint? You're a little tough to buy for."

"Not anything." He couldn't have her, after all. Witha small smile of his own, he took the plate with a thanks before digging through the bags to find something to eat for the both of them. "Anything that comes from the heart would be...perfect."

"That comes from the heart..." She repeated thoughtfully, helping sort through the things that she had taken from the kitchen at his mother's insistence. "I have a few ideas...but you're not helping me narrow them down any." She teased, giving him a light nudge as they stood next to one another.

As she nudged him, he returned the gesture, giving a soft laugh as he watched her work, moving through the bags once again and pulling out the rest of the food. "You made a lot!"

"I'm not the one that chose to bring all of it home." She laughed as well, smile widening as he nudged her back. "Eomma was the one that said that if she saw one more ramen cup in your cabinets she'd throw a fit."

"You still made a lot." He laughed softly, glancing down at her at the last with a soft flush. "Have you been telling her that's what i"m eating?" He laughed softly, shaking his head. "I swear..it's like she thinks you're my wife or something."

"She asks me, and I can't lie to her." She laughed as well, shaking her head. At the last, she worked on filling a plate, adding, "She jokes sometimes, calls me her future daughter-in-law." The thought made her face flush, trying to keep her heart from racing once again.

He couldn't hold back a soft laugh at that, shaking his head. "Yeah, like you'd go for that. You're way too independent." Besides... She was in love with someone else. "If it bothers you, you can always tell her. She won't get upset."

"It doesn't bother me. It's kind of endearing that she cares so much." Her smile widened. "If I were to settle down...I think I'd rather it be with someone like you. Independent enough that we work together well. Though a life with him would be anything but settling down...but she found she liked that thought more than she should.

The flush to his cheeks was dark, his eyes moved to hers in obvious surprise and he couldn't hold back a small smile. "Are you saying you want to settle down with me, then?" His hair fell in his eyes, heartt beating too fast, almost afraid to hope.

She hadn't expected that question, face reddening to a new shade as she looked up to him. She had kept her feelings quiet for so long, for his sake and hers...could she risk saying something that could ruin the friendship they'd built? But she didn't want to lie to him, not after so long of trying to keep her feelings in check. At length, she gave a nervous laugh. "I'm...afraid of what you might say if I answer that."
