As she felt his arms around her, felt him hold her close, tight. He seemed lost, desperate...he wanted her there. She hadn't felt him hold her in far too long... as she heard him say she didn't need fixing, hearing him say he needed her, she felt her body relax and she buried her face in the space between his shoulder and neck. She tooka shaky breath. "You want me..to come home...?"

Hearing her refer to his house as home made something twist deep in his chest, fingers brushing over her back as he rested his cheek against her hair. "More than anything. I understand that you want to be independent. I'll do everything I can to make sure you're as strong as you can be...but please come home."

Biting her lip at his words, she was silent for a long moment. The feel of his fingers over her back, his breath on her hair, she was relaxing for the first time in months. After a long moment, she nodded. "...when..?"

"Any time. As soon as possible if you say yes. If you want to think about it...I'll give you all the time you need. But my home is yours any time you want to come back." He nuzzled into her hair as his eyes slipped closed, feeling himself relax for the first time in weeks.

She shook herhead. "I don't need to think about it." Her hand fell in her lap, the letter falling from her fingers, revealing it was addressed to him as she finally returned the embrace. "I want to come home. I want to move back in..I want to stay."

He was shocked by her answer for only a moment before a wide grin spread across his face, true happiness shining through his being as he gave her a tight squeeze, having to fight to keep from letting out a shout of joy right in her ear. "That's...that's amazing. I'm glad. I'm more than glad. I missed you so much..."

As she felt the squeeze, heard the smile on his voice, she gave a weak laugh. Her fingers gripped dthe back of his shirt for a moment before she pulled back again. "You don't have to keep holding onto me like that. I"m not going anywhere." With a small smile, she released herself from his grasp, immediately regretting it. She wanted tos pend the rest of eternity in his arms... But just because he wanted her back in his house didn't mean he wanted her. "I'll cook. I'll clean..whatever you need so I'm not..not just taking up space." She didn't realize the letter sat in it's envelope, face up to reveal his name written on the outside.

Brushing her hair from her eyes without thinking, he shook his head. "You could never just be taking up space. I don't care what you do as long as you're there again." He immediately missed her warmth as she moved, wanting to hold her against everything in the world, to tell her just what she meant to him...but he couldn't do that while he still had at least one secret to keep.

As his fingers moved through her hair, her cheeks flushed. She looked up st him, still unaware of the letter in her lap, too focused on him. For a wild moment she remembered the kiss they'd shared the day they'd pretended to be on a date, the way he'd held her close, as close as he could while she was still in her chair. How jealous he'd gotten when EunHyung had watched her. She hadn't told the mam on front of her that she'd been seeing one of his lower employees, the one he'd shown such obvious dislike toward. But it was the only way, as fars she could see, that she could keep up with him without actually talking yo him... but now she wouldn't need to use the man anymore. Hell...she couldn't even think about him while youngjae looked at her the way he was. "When do you..want to move be back in?"

"As soon as you can." His smile widened, leaving his hand on her cheek before he glanced down, seeing the letter at last. Seeing his name on the envelope, he raised an eyebrow, eyes meeting hers once again. "What...what's this?"

"As soon as I--" she cut off as his gaze dropped before his yes met hers once more. Her fingers closed around the letter and she held it tightly, fighitnt to find the words, to find an explanation, anything. After a long moment, she shook her head. "...I...it's...it's nothing.' now that she was moving bakc in, she was going to be around him all the time, she found it much harder to confess to him...

"It isn't nothing. Was that for me? Did...did you want to tell me something?" He asked, raising an eyebrow as he shifted, trying to get back into her line of sight.

She shook her head quickly, fingers moving to tear the envelope in half. "It's nothing. It does'nt matter, okay?" Her cheeks were red, too red. She couldn't meet his gaze. As he tried to get into her line of sight, she turned her head, bitin gher lip. After a moment, she spoke again. "It doesn't matter now.because I"m going home. Can't you just...just drop it?"

"I'm...I'm sorry if it bothers you." He was surprised by her vehemence against it, backing up just slightly as he wondered just why she was blushing so darkly. "I can drop it."

She bit her lip, eyes low as she took a deep breath. AFter a long moment, she shook her head. "I"m sorry. I don't...I don't mean to snap. I just... It was just..something stupid I wrote to you. Something I had..no intention of actually giving you so it doesn't matter. I'm sorry." She shook her head again, biting her lip. "It..would only cause problems, anyway."

"If it was important to you, it's not stupid." He shook his head, brushing her hair from her eyes. "I don't think anything could cause problems with us. I mean...not after everything I've done." There hadn't been any further mention of his feelings for her since the near-date they had shared, he thought with a slight frown. He was sure that his feelings weren't reciprocated.

She leaned into his touch, heart pounding away as it always did when he was near. She knew he could hear, but he'd pretend not to..he wouldn't admit what he was to her. With a shiver, she bit her lip. "After everything you did? You mean looking after me? Taking care of me? Protecting me?"

"Telling you how I feel about you, making you uncomfortable to the point that it wasn't mentioned again...I thought that was why you wouldn't talk to me." He admitted, face heating as he wondered just why her heart was racing while he was the one in the presence of someone he had feelings for.

She bit her lip, heart jumping at his words. Her eyes dropped to the ground and she shook her head. The way he felt about her.. it was in the past, it wasn't real. Didn't he see that? "You mean how you felt about me." She'd tried so hard to avoid this conversation. She couldn't stand the idea of no longer seeing the care, the tenderness in his gaze. She didn't want to see how much he didn't care for her now...Now that she was fixed.. "I told you why I wouldn't talk to you..."

"How I feel about you." He insisted firmly, shaking his head. "Nothing's changed. I've been...I've been tearing myself apart since you left because I feel like I never really got to tell you how I feel. Not...not to the point that you believe me."
