"I could never think that about you. You're so strong and so amazing...I care too much about you to let something like that change how I feel." He shook his head, feeling her breath against his face as she spoke.

She was about t respond, to tell him how much she cared for him, how much she wished she'd met him before she ever met Kihyun...until a loud sound outside her bedroom shocked her. It seemed the men Himchan had brought in were removing the body. Looking up and seeing only a glimpse of the shredded carcass, her eyes widened. She quickly looked away, ducking her head, wishing more than anything tha she could bury her face in his chest, feel him hold her close, and forget everythig that had happened.

With a sigh, he pulled her to him, holding her head against his chest with a frown as he felt his chest twist. "Don't...don't look." He mumbled, fingers brushing through her hair. "You shouldn't see that. Not...not after what I did." She would think he was a monster, he thought, once the shock wore off. It was one thing to be protected from the man that had made her life hell for two years, but...would she ever be able to live without being afraid that the creature in the next room would turn against her next?

As she felt his touch, the soothing fingers in her hair, she lifted her hands to grip his shirt gently. She tooka quivering breath, eyes closing as she slowly began to relax. After a long moment, she spoke, voice hardly above a whisper. "..can werewolves read minds..?"

"No?" He shook his head, fingers still moving through her hair. "I mean...I'm the only one I know, but I can't." he added, resting his cheek against the top of her head.

"I just...I was thinking i wanted you to hold me like this, exactly like this, and then you did it.." she gave a weak laugh. After a moment, she looked up st him, fingers moving to push his hair back from his face, lingering on his cheek. "You don't know any others? " there had to be more out there, weren't there? About to voice those thoughts another struck her. If sijin killed the man as the wolf...it wouldn't look like a murder, but an animal attack...there would be questions. What would she do if himchan found out about him? Would he take him away got experiments?

"I didn't want you to see...I didn't know that you wanted me to do this." He leaned into her touch with a small smile, the expression not quite reaching his eyes as he shook his head. "I've...never known anyone but the normal wolves that I lived with. I never met anything like a human until they started tearing down my home...the one I had before here."

(Himchan gets to notice that he's a wolf XDDD)

"If you're worried...about me being afraid of you, of what you did...I'm not." She shook her head, fingers moving over his cheek again as she watched him. Biting her lip, she glanced over his shoulder at the men cleaning out the closet. "I'm more worried..about what they'll do when they find out you're not...entirely human. I don't...I don't want them to take you away, to run tests or...or hurt you. I don't want them to have questions you can't answer..."

"You don't have to worry about that." Himchan offered from his place in the doorway, apologizing for listening in. With an easygoing smile, he added, "You'd be surprised what goes on in this city. One of my men is a werewolf himself...and one of my closest friends. You'll live in peace, the both of you. But if you have any questions about what you are and where you can find more like you..." He pulled a simple black business card from his pocket, offering it to Sijin. "Either of you are welcome to call me anytime if you need anything. You have a good friend here, miss. It would be a shame to take that away."

((Himchan, you creeping. Just a bit. XD))

(Himchan..you're the best eomma...)

Hearing the voice, she felt her grip on the man's shirt tighten before she herad the words. He wouldn't take her friend away from her. He wouldn't leave her all alone. Visibly relaxing at the words, she looked up at her companion, wondering if he was worried, f he trusted the man in front of them. Seeing the buisness card, she wondered ifSijin would accept, if he'd want to learn more, want to meet more people like him..if he'd want to leave her for a better family after all. She bit her lip, feeling her stomach twist nervously before bowing her head. "Thank you, ahjussi... What you've done for me, for...for us...I can't tell you how grateful I am.."

((MomChan is the best. XD))

"Live well and be happy. That's the best way to pay me back." He assured her with a smile, the expression gaining strength as the boy before him took the card with a quiet thanks. "I would like to take the both of you to dinner when you're well, if that's all right with you. Just to make sure that you're well and...a proper apology."

Sijin relaxed a little as he listened to the man speak, seeing nothing to distrust in him. The way he held Yoonah reflected this, though he was reluctant to do anything to put any distance between them. At the offer, he gave a small, hesitant smile, nodding his agreement.

Flushing at the mention of dinner, she looked at Sijin, wondering if he'd be comfortable with it. He'd never really talked to many people but her before. Seeing him nod, she looked at the older man and nodded as well, fingers finding her friends and giving them a soft squeeze. "Dinner..would be great. Once..Once I can walk again." She laughed weakly. "I injured my leg this morning in the...the issue." Sijin was still holding her, he didn't care that there were eyes watching them, he didn't care that it could make people uncomfortable...the thought made her heart race.

"If you want to see a doctor, let them know to call me concerning the bill. Anything I can do to make this right..." He offered, brushing his hair from his eyes. "I won't overstay my welcome. Don't worry, it's going to be as if Kihyun never existed. We'll take care of the rest." Bidding them to have a good evening, he took his leave, Jongup and Junhong in tow with one more body to get rid of for the night.

As he heard the people leave, Sijin relaxed completely, resting his head against Yoonah's shoulder. "It's over..." He mumbled, more to himself than to her. "You're safe now."

She flushed once more, giving a small bow as she thanked him again. She would never hear that name again..and she couldn't be happier. As the man and his crew left them alone again, she felt the boy shift, heard his words about it being over an dher hand remained on his gently. After a moment, she lifted her free hand to his head, running through his hair gently. "I...thought I'd never see you again. When I made you go I..."Her voice broke. "...I was so cruel. Why did you come back?"

"I knew that you were hurt. I knew that...that you were trying to protect me." He replied slowly, aware of his breath fanning over her neck. "I can read you better than anyone...I knew that you didn't want me to go. Or...I kept telling myself that you didn't want me to go. I hoped that you...that you were going to ask me for help, or to come back...or even to visit. I could tell that something was wrong, but...if I didn't think of an excuse to come by when I did, you might not be here right now." The thought brought his trembling back in full force, pulling her into his arms once again.

"I-" she cut off as she felt him pull her close, felt him shake despite her being so near. He had really been so afraid..? Her fingers moved upt to run over his hair again, humming softly. "I didn't want you to go, youre right. I never want you to go. I..." she trailed off, biting her lip. "I...don't want you to leave again. I want you to stay here, live here. Be my room mate or...or whatever you want to call it." Aft er a moment,s he took a deep breath. "Don't panic like this... I'm okay, you're okay...he's gone and everything worked out. So just breathe..."

He nodded, taking a deep breath as he relaxed at her touch. "I care so much about you...I promise I won't leave again. That I will do anything to keep you happy." He assured her, fingers tracing lightly against her side without thinking.

Hearing him say he cared about her, her heart jumped. She was sure he didn't mean it the way she wanted to take it. He didn't even know how to care about someone in that way..but still...the thought. She bit her lip, fingers runnig down his spine again. "All I need to be happy..is for things to go back to the wya they were. For..for me to look after you as I have been, for us to be..to be happy together. Can..can we do that?"

"Anything...anything for you." He nodded, feeling something in his mind protest going back to exactly the way things were. He knew that she likely couldn't imagine being with him just the same way he felt for her, but he couldn't ask her how she felt after what she had been through since he left. He wanted her to be safe, to be happy...to undo the damage that had been done over the last two years. If that meant he would keep his feelings secret from her, that was a small price to pay.

She smiled softly, fingers brushing hsi hair back from his face before resting o his cheek once again. After a moment, she took a deep breath. "I haven't...been sleeping well since you left. And..I can see that you're exhausted, too." likely from the stress of everything that had just happened... " Why..why don't you get a shower..? And then come to bed? We can...we can share like we did last time if you'd like I know the couch isn't that comfortable."
