She bowed her head,thanking him as she sat back against the bed, eyes on the ground for a long moment. Finally, after finding her voice, she started by telling him who she was, that she'd been seeing kihyun. She told him all the terrible things he'd done, things she'd never even told Sijin. She found she couldn't meet the man's gaze, she couldn't even look at sijin, too ashamed in everything that had happened, in herself above everything else. But the only way to keep her friend out of trouble was to tell himchan everything. Including the times he'd forced himself on her, including the terrible things he'd expected her to do, he'd forced her to do. Only two years into the relationship, she mentioned the first time he attacked her, the threats to herself and her family, the death of her cousin, the broken bones and hospitalization. Breaking off , she realized she was shaking...but there was still so much more to tell him..

With a frown, he moved to sit on the edge of her bed, shaking his head with a heavy sigh. "I...I can't believe this." He breathed at last. "Everything I've done to try to rebuild everything and I gave a worm like that power enough to do something like that. I can't...I can't apologize enough for what happened to you. And I can't do anything to take that pain away, but...I will do everything I can to make it right. You have my word."

She shook her head again, unable to meet the man's gaze, she couldn't even look up at sijin, sure she'd see disgust in his eyes if she did after hearing more details about her relationship than she wanted anyone to ever know. Her voice was wavering, tears were burning her eyes but refused to fall. She wouldn't be weak in front of this man. After a moment her story wound to a close, telling him simply that sijin had killed the man to protect her and left the body in thr closet until they could figure out what to do with it... and asking quickly that if anyone had to be punished for kihyun death, it be her. She didn't bother mentioning what sijin was. The man likely wouldn't belive her anyway...and it wasn't her secret to tell...

(But when he sees am animal attacked the body...XD)

Reaching out, Himchan laid a hand on her arm carefully, hoping that she would know that he meant no harm. "No one's going to be punished. You are...incredibly strong to endure all of that and worry about your friend. I'll take care of this mess...and I'll make sure that you both are safe. Contrary to popular belief, I do have a heart." He added with a weak smile.

Sijin had moved into the room at the same time as the younger man, watching for a moment and deciding that he was telling the truth. With a soft sigh, he moved to sit on the bed just beside Yoonah, placing a hand on her back to remind her that she wasn't alone. He wanted to hold her, to pull her close and try to chase away her memories, but now wasn't the time.

As she felt the hand on her arm, she slowly lifted her gaze to the older man. Repeating that he was in the closet, she bit her lip. They were safe, he'd said. They were safe...they wouldn't be punished. "I..I knew you had a heart, ahjussi. I..know what you're trying to do in this city." As she felt the hand on her back, she flinched. She wasn't afraid of him hurting her and she hoped he wouldn't think that was why she pulled away..she just could've stand seeing the disgust, she couldn't handle him knowing all the terrible things she'd done, things he'd done to her... she hated that he knew it all...

"I'm glad for that. Excuse me a second, I'll have my boys clean everything up." He gave her arm a gentle squeeze, pulling his phone from his pocket and dialing a number as he moved into the living room where the blood still stained the floor. There would be a lot of explaining to do.

"I'm sorry..." Sijin let his arm fall away for a moment as Himchan moved into the other room, hesitating a moment before winding his arms around her shoulders. Resting his forehead on her shoulder, he repeated the apology. "I should have done something sooner. I should have helped you."

Nodding as the mam rose and left them alone, she fought not to lean into his embrace, she he was only touching her because ofwhat he'd been taught. As he pulled her into his arms, as she felt his head against her shoulder, she tooka shaky breath. "Sijin, you..y-you don't have to.." she trailed off, hearing him apologize, and then again. What the hell did he have to apologize for? "You...why are you sorry? You didn't even..e-even know me then..."

"I don't care what I don't have to do. I want to do this. I want...I want to help you feel better." He nuzzled into her neck with a sigh. "I wish I had met you sooner. I might have kept him away from you." Then, after a long moment, he added, "You're...incredible. He's right. You're so strong."

"If I was strong I wouldn't have let him..." she trailed off, lump growing in her throat. She shook her head. "I...I feel... wrong . You.. shouldn't hold me like this. You shouldn't even want to now that you..you heard..." she bit her lip as her voice broke. "I can't stand that you heard..."

"No. You're perfect. You're amazing." He shook his head, pressing his lips to her temple on instinct. "I don't care what happened, only that I wish I had made him suffer more. I wish I had waited to tear him apart."

She almost missed the feel of his lips, the brush against her skin. She almost didn't notice it...until her heart gavea hard bump and her cheeks flushed lightly. Had he realized what he'd done? He wouldn't know what a kiss was, he wouldn't know how you should feel when you kiss...he had to have just seem it somewhere and imitated. It didn't mean anything, she had to tell herself. "T..tear him apart?" What exactly had he done to kihyun? With a flush, she looked up at him again. She still expected to see the disgust, the distaste, anything but kindness in his eyes. "You don't...want to leave? Put all of this behind you? Run out of my life..?"

"Why? You are my life. You're everything that's ever made me happy." He shook his head, a warm smile on his lips as he brushed his fingers over her cheek. "I won't ever leave you again."

As she felt his touch, his hand on her cheek, she looked up at him. For a wild moment she wanted to kiss him, to get closer... to lie in his arms... she bit her lip, holding hjs gaze for a moment before she lifted her hand to hold his to her cheek. "You won't leave me..?" Even after knowing what she'd done, what she'd been forced to do..?

"Ever. I want to be here with you. To protect you. To make sure you always smile, you always laugh...that no one hurts you again." He promised, smiling softly as he brushed his thumb across her cheek.

AS she felt his thumb, felt the way he touched her cheek, her breath caught ocne more. She looked up at him, fingers moving over his hand gently, meeting his gaze. "..YOu're not...disgusted with me? YOu don't...hate to look at me now?" How could he not? HE knew everything... Still...she was comforted by his words. He wanted to protect her, to make her smile...? The only thing in the world that seemed to be able to do just that was him.

"Why would I? You're not anything less for what you've gone through. I could never hate anything about you." He shook his head, resting his forehead against hers in a silent effort to comfort her. Outside he heard the door open once again, more voices joining Himchan's as the telltale shuffling indicated that they were cleaning his mess.

As he leaned forward, his forehead rested against hers, her heart jumped. She felt her cheeks flush sotly, eyes meeting his before she took a shaky breath. "I was so afraid..when yo uheard everything, when you learned...everythig he did, everything he made me--" she cut off, unable to finish the statemnt before she took a shaky breath again. "I was so afraid...you'd be disgusted, you'd leave, you'd..lose all respect for me."

"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?
