"Kimchi it is." He brightened at the thought, still holding her hand between his. "I know a great place a few blocks away, we could walk there if you want."

"You can walk." She laughed weakly, wishing she could pull her hand back, she could stop him from touching her. At least for now. It hurt...knowing that this really meant nothing.

"Better than driving, anyway. Details, details." He waved her off in mock dismissal, smirk betraying his teasing. "Maybe it can distract you from whatever you're thinking about...that's making you look so sad."

"Details are important, Youngjae-si." She laughed softly, the sound not quite happy. Looking back at him, she met his gaze in surprise. Cheeks flushing softly, she bit her lip. "I look sad..?"

"I've been studying you this whole time. Something we talked about...something I said, it upset you, didn't it? How can I fix it?" He asked, frowning slightly as his worry started to show.

"I'm not sad, I'm not upset. " No more than she always was, anyway... "There's nothing to fix, really. I'm alright." Offering a soft smile, she gave his fingers a light squeeze.

"Your smile isn't as bright." He pointed out, giving a small, worried smile as he ran his thumb over the back of her hand. "Is there anything I can do?"

Flushing softly at his words, she shook her head, fingers brushing his gently. "No. Really, I'm okay. I didnt notice my smile hada brightness to it at all.." Laughing softly, she glanced back out to the lake. "Can we swim...when I'm well again?

"Absolutely." He brightened at the thought. "I haven't been swimming in years. I could even take you to the beach if you want, it's only a few hours away."

She looked up at him in surprise at his words. "The beach? You think you could keep m around that long..?"

"What do you mean? Our friendship isn't going to end the second you're well again, you know." He grinned, giving her hand a squeeze. "Have you ever been on a road trip for fun before? It's great, I think you'll love it."

"I just mean..you may be sick of me being around by then. You may not want me to go on a trip with you.." she flushed, biting her lip. The friendship wasn't going to end? A part of her doubted that. The friendship started because he felt bad for her...

"Are you kidding?" He shook his head with a grin. "I like being around you. I want to be around you as much as possible. Nothing's going to change that."

"that's just...a long time. A lot of tie to get tired of me." she laughed weakly, shaking her head and looking up at him again. He wanted to be around her... With cheeks flushing, she gave a weak smile. "Weren't we going to eat?"

"Don't talk down on yourself like that," He insisted, voice bordering on a whine as he gave her hand another squeeze. "You're worth more than that." Bringing her fingers to his lips in a quick movement, he stood, moving behind her chair to start down the path once again. They could take the long way, he decided. It might ease her nerves.

"I just think you'll get sck of only doing things with me." She laughed at the whine, flushign as she felt his fingers tighten on hers. As he brought her fingers to his lips, her cheeks burned. She looked up at him in surprise. As he began to push her down the space, she flushed darker. "...You...have gotten incredibly friendly."

"I'm...acting on thoughts I wasn't able to let myself have before. Mostly it's instinct...I can't seem to stop touching you." He said at last, ignoring the comment on getting sick of her. He could never, he thought. She was far too important.

"So why are you suddenly so...able to let yourself have the thoughts now?" Had that therapist really bothered him so much that he was allowing himself to use her like this?

"I guess I just...decided to stop being afraid of what might happen if things go wrong. I've spent so long trying to keep myself at arm's length from everyone...I'm tired of hiding. You're the first person that's been able to see right through me." In more ways than she probably knew, his mind supplied helpfully. "I'm more afraid of losing you than I am of being hurt again."

"So now you want to pretend there's something more between us for a day...and then go back to normal tomorrow? Back to hiding? Back to...to being afraid?" She bit her lip. He didn't care about her, not like that. He didn't want her.. he wanted his past lover. He wanted a project... He wanted something he could work on. She shook her head. "It's fine, I mean, I'm not upset with it or anything." She laughed softly. "I'm starving.." Anything to change this subject.
