"No. I've gotten over her. That shouldn't have anything to do with this." He shook his head with a huff. "I know you're beautiful, but don't they see that someone's already here?"

"I doidn't mean you're getting over her. I meant you're getting over what happened. You still haven't gotten over that, and you can't tell me you have. Otherwise you wouldn't be so afraid, you woouldn't be so...terrified to tell me whatever secrets your keeping." She shook her head. "and again, I'm not asking you to, if and when you decide to tell me, I'll listen but I won't ask you to share. It's not my business. Bu maybe he knows you're not over whatever..trauma happened to you." She shook her head. "Either way he's just being polite. And it's quite posible he thinks i"m your sister or your cousin or..just a friend because of that. I mean, we're not exactly adversising what we are. Hell, I'm not even sure what we are anymore. Roommates? Friends?.." Somethign more? Her cheeks flushed softly.

"No one knows about that but my brothers and you." His voice grew a little quieter, fingers moving over her shoulder absently. "And they only know because they were there for most of it, when she tried to...well, when the police were involved. There was a hell of a shootout." He gave a wry laugh. At the last, he hummed thoughtfully. "I don't...really know what label to give us. I mean, we live together, we're friends...but I feel more than that for you."

"No one..." Had he trusted her so much with this secret...? Her heart jumped at the thought and she bit her lip. "She went to the police? She was...afraid of you?" What reason could she possible have? He was a murderer, sure...but who wasn't in this city? She shook her head, relaxing as she felt his hand on her shoulder. Her eyes glanced back at the man once more, watching as he stared after them with a wary frown. They were afraid of youngjae, too, it seemed. Just how dangerous was he, really...? At the last, she heard his words, heart jumping. He felt more than that...? "...Let's just..stick with friends for now. Alright?"

"Terrified." The word was hardly over a whisper, running his teeth over his lip as he fought to keep his mind in the moment. "Even with how quick I was able to find her and...well, you know...we had the police after us for weeks. She was able to tell them about three of our hideouts." At the last, he felt a smaller, weaker smile pulling at his lips. "Deal."

She shook her head at his words. "She sounds like a bitch. I mean, no offense to you and your taste..and I hope you don't mind me saying it. But she sounds like a complete bitch. I hate her and I didn't even know her." Seh shook her head. "Who in this city isn't a killer? Who is completely innocent? I mean...come on, at least what you're doing is to benefit the good guys. At least what you're doing is to...to help. You're doing good...there's nothing to be afraid of, as long as she was agood person she would have been safe. Who cares how you go about the killing if that was the issue. A kill is a kill, right? Regarless of how it happens. But if she was afriad of the fact that you kill...she souldn't have been in Seoul in the first place." She shook her head with a soft sigh. "I just cant...comprehend her being so afraid of you..just because sometimes your work requries you to kill. I mean...you killed my father. And I couldn't be happier."

"No, you're right. She was a bitch. And worse..." He gave a weak laugh, listening to her speak and feeling something in his chest give a bump at her words. "There was a lot about the city she didn't know...and what I do was a big part of it. If more people thought like you...I think the city would be in a better state already." His fingers traced against her shoulder, almost in an attempt to remind himself that this impossible, perfect girl was real. "You're able to see how necessary it is. That in order to survive around here, you have to do what you need to..." She was so accepting, he thought. Could she accept all of him? All of what he did?

She shivered at the feel of his fingers, once again reminding herself he wasn't doing this because he wanted her..not really. She took a shaky breath. "Are you still angry at him now?" She could still feel the other man's eyes on her..

"I am. I know he's still staring." He grumbled, shooting the man a pointed glare over his shoulder to make sure he knew that Youngjae wasn't as oblivious as he might seem. "He needs to keep his eyes on where he's going."

"He's allowed to stare." She bit her lip. "I don't...I don't belong to you." Still..the idea that he was getting so...upset that she was being watched was...endearing. WAs he really so protective of her?

Realizing what he was doing, he apologized softly, clearing his throat. "I...I know that. I don't...I'm just...I don't know." He said at last, ducking his head with an embarrassed huff.

She bit her lip. "I get it. You're just looking out for me, protecting me. I'm...glad you want to keep me safe." She smiled softly, watching as they slolwly came to the end of the path of cherry blossoms. "...You could always tell him to stop staring if it bothers you so much."

"I'm being jealous. Again." He shook his head with a sigh, taking her around a corner to take the long way around the park. "It's...not my place to tell someone to stop staring if it's not bothering you. No matter how much it bothers me."

"Jealous? What do you have to be jealous of? Even...even if we were more than..than friends...I don't ahve an attraction to him. I mean, he's handsome but he's just..he's not my type." She laughed softly. "So why be jealous?"

"It's...not logical." He shook his head with a soft, clearly nervous laugh. "I guess I just...keep thinking that you might find something in someone...that you'll be distracted or you'll fall for some guy and he won't be what's best for you."

"And you think you're what's best for me?" He didn't. He couldn't. Even if that was what she wanted more than anything in the world. The universe wsn't that kind. She wouldn't have him...she didn't have a chance.

"I want to be." He blurted without thinking, face burning as he realized that something about her was making it harder and harder to keep his thoughts to himself. "No matter how you accept what I am, you'd be in danger if we were together. I'd do everything and more to protect you, but you'd have to keep that in mind."

"You're determined that we're together...?" She shook her head. "I told you this date thing wasa bad idea..." he didn't know what he wanted. Not really..."I already told you...the danger doesn't bother me. You've protected me until now, haven't you?"

"Wait, I can stop talking about it if it's making you uncomfortable." He shook his head, cursing softly as he realized that not only was he not making sense, he was making things worse for the both of them. "I mean...that doesn't scare you?"

Glancing back at him, she raised a brow. ."what doesn't bother me? The danger?"
