"It isn't an act." He defended, cheeks darkening. "I really like you." Leaning into her touch, he smiled, holding her hand to his cheek. "But I'm sure there's nothing you see in me in comparison."

"I...like you." Her heart jumped, fingers brushing his cheek gently. "But..I also know part of this whole...attraction is the fact that I need you. I can't go anything on my own..I need to be fixed." She bit her lip. That was the only reason he could ever care for her.

"That's not it at all. I like you because you're strong. Because I know you don't need me or anyone to fix you...there's nothing broken about you." He shook his head, brushing her hair behind her ear. "Because your smile is more beautiful than any of these flowers...and I want to do anything to make sure it doesn't wilt away."

Hearing his words, she wanted to believe him. She wanted to accept his feelings, to tell him not to make it one day, one date...but she couldnt. She knew better, even if he didn't yet. He felt responsible for her. So until she could be on her own...she couldn't take anything he said or did to heart... she'd be crushed when she was no longer a project if she did. "You make it sound very...romantic."

"As hard as it is to believe, I can be a romantic." He gave a soft chuckle, pressing another gentle kiss to her forehead. "All right, I've got one day to prove myself. What do you want to do?"

"I belive you can be, it's just odd when it's aimed toward--" his lips cut her off, startled by his forewardness. "One day to prove yourself? What are you trying to prove? Are you..I mean...do you not want this to be just one day?" He made it sound like he wanted to prove he felt for her..so that things wouldn't go back to normal.but...that wasn't possible, was it?

"You'll see." He shot her a grin that spelled nothing but trouble, eyes flashing as his hand still held hers. "The whole city is yours to explore, what would you like to do first?"

Flushing, unable to hold back a smile at the sight of his, she looked up at him, fingers closing around his, suddenly realizing she'd like nothing more than to go back to his house, his bed.. her cheeks darkened. "I..want to see the place we met..

"Your wish is my command." he decided with a grin, giving her fingers a squeeze before moving to push her once again, hand never leaving hers. "You know...I hadn't been out in months until the day we met. It was just work, home, and that was it. That first day I had decided to go and be outside for a change, even in the cold...and you found me."

Smiling a she felt him hold onto her hand, she gave his fingersa squeeze. She wasa project, her mind hissed again. "I'm glad I saw you skip that rock then...or in never would have talked to you..."

"We saved each other, sounds like." He offered without thinking, taking her down the familiar path to the pond. It looked much better in the summer, still water a deep blue-green rather than the icy silver it had been that afternoon. Several petals from the surrounding trees had fallen to the surface of the water, the soft pink stark against it. "You pulled me from my mind...gave me something to live for."

"I gave you a project." She laughed softly, looking up at him as her fingers tightened on his hand again. "You make it sound like I did some spectacular thing. All I did was express that o was impressed when you skipped that rock."

"You gave me a friend. And more than that, from what you're doing to me." He shook his head, giving her hand a squeeze. "I haven't smiled or laughed this much since...well, since my last major mission." He still wouldn't speak her name, though the sting was far less severe now. "You did a lot more than you know."

Flushing softly at his words, she smiled softly. Lifting his hand to her lips
, she thought his words over for a moment before humming softly. "I'm glad...I can make you smile even a little bit."

Feeling his face heat at the gentle contact, he felt his smile widen, reaching the bench that he had been standing in front of when they first met. He left her chair at one side of the bench, allowing him to sit without releasing her hand. "It's definitely more than a little bit."

Flushing at the movement she'd done, her heart jumped. She looked up at him, offering a weak smile, she squeezed his fingers lightly. Her eyes moved to the lake and her breath aught. "It's...beautiful."

"It looks a lot better now that it's warmer." He nodded with a grin, looking over to her as he settled in his seat. "In the winter it's bitter and lonely...which is why I liked coming out here so much then. Now I'm glad I get to share this with you."

"I was, before we met." He admitted with a laugh of his own, giving her a light nudge. "And I am. I like this time of year...everything that was dead or sleeping during the winter is finally coming back to life."
