She watched him, eyes wide and innocent as her fingers tightened around his. "...Will you stay with me?" For a moment she seemed sober, completely coherent as she looked up at him. "...if I go to your bed again...will you stay with me? I don't want to be alone tonight..." Her nightmares had gotten worse since her brother tried to kill her...and now she was certain he as back there, he'd threatened her that if Hwanki's speech went well tat they'd be waiting for her with a surprise, with a celebration of their own...if she went home, she wasn't sure she'd survive the night. She knew, despite her best efforts, that he could see her fear in her gaze.

He felt his heart twist, knowing that whatever demons, whatever fears that lurked in her mind were relentless...as was her brother. Ignoring the way his mind offered that he'd stay in her life no matter what, he nodded, giving her hand a squeeze. "Of course I'll stay. Whatever you need, Yeonhui. You just...have to promise not to freak out if you wake up tomorrow and you don't remember anything, okay?" He half-joked, face heating a little at the thought.

"Like last time?" The fear was still there, but she brightenedaLittle at his agreement. "I'll try, but if I don't remember you have to remind me.." she smiled weakly, leaning her head against his shoulder again. "I... am glad you found me in that alley..and I'm glad you wanted me to be your friend."

"I'll remind you." He nodded with a smile, relaxing a little as she leaned against him once again. "I'm glad, too. You're the best thing that ever happened to me, did you know that?"

"The best? But didn't you hate me at first? " She smiled, thumb brushing the back of his hand before she looked up st him again. "I like you... a lot, Hwanki. You're my best friend."

"I didn't hate you. I just didn't know what to think about you." He smiled at the last, ignoring the way that title made his heart twist. "You're my best friend, too. I wouldn't be who I am without you. I made a speech and didn't trip up or throw up. Thanks to you."

"I talked too much, I could tell it ws annoying for you." She giggled softly, fingers tightening on his before her smile fell away again. "...I'm tired, Hwanki.." She frowned, free hand moving to her head. "My head hurts...will you take me to bed?" She oculdn't walk on her own, not as far gone as she was.

"It didn't take me long to like it." He shook his head with a soft laugh, unaware that he was nuzzling into the top of her head with the movement. At the last, he nodded, moving to stand and waiting a moment for his equilibrium to reset before he bent to lift her gently into his arms. "Do you want an aspirin or anything?"

She flushed softly as he pulled her into his arms. Her arms wrapped around his neck gently as she looked up at him. She'd intended to walk, just using him for support...but finding herself in his arms, she looked at him, held his gaze, cheeks flushed softly. "No. No asprin, just sleep..." After a mometn, she took a deep breath. "I'm...going to thank you...for...for doing this. Because I won't remember tomorrow and...and everything today is a secret, so..." With another deep breath, she moved her hand to his cheek, other arm still around his neck and she leaned up, pressing a soft kiss to his lips. It was barely a kiss at all, knowing if he returned it it would only be out of obligation, knowing she aws giving him an out by not remembering the next day, she was careful not to make it too deep, too emotional before she pulled back again, nestling her head into the crook of his neck before she sighed softly. "...I hope you don't leave me alone in there because of...of how I thanked you...I slept...the best when I slept in your bed last time." In his arms...

He felt his heart skip a beat, knowing that it had to be out of thanks only, a gesture of friendship by someone who had drank entirely too much, but he couldn't keep from returning it. It was selfish, but he would take every opportunity to be close to her that he could...even if it broke his heart. Feeling his stomach flip a little as she got comfortable, he allowed himself a smile. "I...I don't mind. Of course I'll stay. I've never slept better than I did that night..."

She nuzzled his neck gently, lips brushing his skin before she took a deep breath. "...I'm scared to go home. I don't like being scared. I know he's there, waiting for me. He told me we'd celebrate if you did well on your speech. THey're...angry I'm helping you." She shook her head again, giving a soft whimper as the room spun. Her fingers moved over the back of his neck, through his hair gently as if to calm herself, to reassure herself that she was with him. "I'm scared..."

"Don't be afraid, Yeonhui. No one's going to hurt you here. And I'll make sure that they don't hurt you, all right? I don't know how, but I'll make sure he won't bother you again." He promised, taking her into his room and pulling the blankets down before he gently set her on the mattress.

As he set her on the mattress, her grip around his neck tightened for a moment before she looked up at him and released him with a weak apology. She glanced around the room for a moment before giving a soft hum. "Can I change? Do I have clothes here?" She'd spent the night a couple times, but it was never intentional...the only clothes she had was what she wore...including his hoodie which still remained wrapped around her arms. She loved this hoodie...

"I don't think you have pajamas here. But I do." He moved to his wardrobe, pulling out a comfortable, well-washed t-shirt and a pair of pajama pants. "I can turn around or leave the room, whatever you're most comfortable with." He added, passing the clothes to her.

"Just...just turn around." She flushed softly, taking the clothes with a soft thanks. After a moment, waiting for him tot urn, she unzipped the hoodie, setting it to the side before removing her own shirt, then her bra, flushing as her eyes moved to his back for a moment. She pulled his shirt on over her head then rolled over on the bed to take off her pants and replace them with his. Once she was dressed, she glanced back at her friend. "I'm decent now but...oppa...can..can I sleep in your hoodie, too?"

"You can sleep in whatever you want. Whatever makes you comfortable." He turned around, feeling his heart give a hard bump as he saw her wearing her clothes. She looked perfect. Like she belonged in his bed, in his home, in his life...and she could never be in that role. She never would want to be. Giving a soft smile, he moved to the other side of the bed, slipping under the blankets.

"I'm glad you don't mind me calling you oppa. I think I like it." She smiled weakly. The hoodie, at least, smelled like him. His clothes did, too, but the hoodie was...so much more significant to her. Her heart raced as he turned back to look at her. The look on his face, her cheeks flushed at the thought, made him seem almost like he was in love with her, like he had osmething he wanted to say, to do. He looked almost dazed. Why...? As he moved under the covers, she noticed how far away he seemed. It wasn't like last time, how she'd ended up in his arms. After a moment, she soke softly. "...I..might have nightmares. I don't want to wake you up if I do. So...if you don't want to sleep in here with me you don't have to. I mean..I asked you to but you don't have to. I"d rather you be comfortable...and you seem...uncomfortable to be here... I mean, you're practically on the very edge of your own bed. I can..I an even go to the couch if you want." After a moment, she nodded. "Yeah, I"ll..I'll do that." She shifted, pulling the blankets off of her as she moved her legs over the side of the bed with the intention to go back to the living room.

"I think I like it, too. You're the first person to call me that." He pointed out, leaning on his elbow as he looked over to her. As she spoke, he frowned slightly, reaching out to gently grab her wrist. "No, I'm not uncomfortable. I'm...just not used to this. Come on, there's no reason for you to take the couch. Get comfortable wherever you want, and I will, too." Then, after a moment, he added, "I just...didn't want to make you uncomfortable if you didn't want me to hold you again."

As she felt his hand on her wrist, she froze. A million drama scenes flashed through her mind, a million images of him kissing her again. Something she couldn't allow again. Not when all it meant was he felt guilty, not when it would just remind her that he didn't want her. She bit her lip, gaze turning back toward his. After a moment, she nodded, cheeks red. Pulling her legs back into the bed, she pulled the blankets over her lap before looking up at him with a small smile, hair falling in her eyes. With a pout, she blew the hair out of her face, grumbling when it fell back in front of her eyes anyway. As she heard the last, she looked up at him. "...Hwanki...I always want you to hold me. When we're talking, when we're watching movies, when we're drinking together or eating together or working together... I always want you to. I just didn't...know I did until you did it." He'd only held her once, when they'd slept together last time....but she hadn't forgotten the warmth, the safety she felt.

"I'll have to make sure you remember that you said that." He gave a soft smile, brushing her hair out of her face. "Or I'll forget and freak you out by hugging you sometime..." She always wanted him to hold her? That almost sounded like something beyond friendship...or perhaps he was reading too far into it. As she relaxed, he wound his arms around her, relaxing against the pillows.
