Giving a soft laugh at his words, she watched him move. For a moment she almost panicked, wondering why he was leaving her before she realized what he was doing and relaxed again. "You want to cook with me?"

"I do. I want to learn from the best. That way I can help more around here...make sure you're not doing so much work here as much as you are when you leave." He nodded with a smile, returning with a glass of water. Part of him debated on making her tea, but he figured she needed a purer form of hydration for the moment.

"Really?" He had only gone with her on a few short errands before, the excursions getting steadily longer as he slowly got accustomed to people. He was very protective of her when they were out of the house and nearly caused a fight the first time a merchant tried to bully her into buying perfume. "I'd like that. But I'm sure they can't beat your cooking."

With a soft laugh, she noddded, taking another drink before setting it aside and reaching for her food again. "You'll be amazed with a real chef, trust me."

Settling into his seat, he shook his head with a smile. "I doubt it. But you don't have to work as hard, so I'm sure I'll like that."

Surprised by his words, she couldn't hold back a small smile. Reaching out, she ran her hand over his hair gently before returning to her food once again. "You always know..jst how to make me feel better. It's amazing."

"I'm glad..." He couldn't keep from smiling, ducking his head under her attention. "I've been watching you since you took me in...but most of the time I'm not trying as much as I feel like I could. A lot of the time, you seem...just happy. Things I say or things I do...I guess they help more than I think."

"Just having you here helps me every day, Sijin." She smiled. "Hearing your voice, your laugh, watching you learn and grow. Even just sitting with you during a movie or..or like we were a few moments ago, in your arms. It all..." She trailed off, biting her lip. "I was in a dark place when I met you. I..as struggling with everytying in my life and I just wanted it to end. I..had attempted to...to.." she trailed off, recalling both attempts at suicide before she shook her head. "I was going to try..again...and then I found you. You...have saved my life...more times than you know."

It hadn't been long since he had asked her about the thought of taking one's own life, since he had seen the idea in a show they were watching. The thought had unnerved him, and knowing that the person he cared the most about had been battling her own demons to that point made his heart twist in his chest. Rising to stand on his knees, he moved to pull her into another hug, tight but careful not to aggravate her wounds. "Everything I can do to help you...to make sure you keep smiling...I'll do it." He promised, unsure of what to say to let her know the depth of his emotions. Once again it seemed that words were failing him.

Dropping her chopsticks at the feel of his arms, she flushed softly. Her hands slowly moved to his back, gripping his shirt lightly before shaking her head. How was it he managed to chase away so much of thr darkness without ever even meaning to..? Turning her head, lips accidentally brushing the side of his neck, she took a shaky breath. How close was she to breaking down? He didn't need to see that.she needed to get a hold of herself. "You already do. You have no clue..how much I really need you. If anything happened to you.." she trailed off. So, then...how would she do once she kicked him out? Would she go back to that darkness? Would she succeed am attempt..?

"You don't have to worry about that. And you shouldn't. I'll be okay. It's you that I'm worried about." He shook his head, resting his forehead in the place between her neck and shoulder, wishing that he could show her through touch just what she meant to him.

"I know...you promised you wouldn't go after him...." she just had to find a way to get him out, to keep him from danger... "you don't have to worry about me. There's no reason to worry about me. Okay?" Why would he worry so much anyway...? She was saving his life..

"I did. But there's more than enough reason to worry about you." He mumbled, lips moving against the skin of her collarbone without thinking. "...I just want you to be safe."

As she felt his lips on her skin, she couldn't hold back a small shiver. Her fingers brushed his hair gently again as she took a deep breath. "I am safe. I promise, nothing like this will happen again, okay?" She wouldn't let it. No matter what...

"How can you promise that? If he's in your life...if nothing's done, he won't stop. And some day he will kill you." He frowned, holding her a little more tightly as if he could keep her safe simply by refusing to let anything get near her.

"H'es not...he won't kill me." She'd do it herself before he could try, her mind finished with a hiss. She smiled weakly, finger running down his spine gently. "I promise you I won't let him do this again. No matter what. So you don't have to worry, okay?"

"I promised that I wouldn't go after him." He mumbled after a minute, shivering lightly at the gentle touch. "Please...for me...can you promise me that you won't do anything rash? That you'll stay safe?"

"I..won't do anything rash." She nodded, fingers still running over his spine gently. It wasn't rash, it was something she'd thought on for years...and it was the only way she could keep everyone she cared about safe... "you don't have to worry..."

"And you'll be safe? You won't get hurt?" He insisted, not certain that she would keep herself from harm if it meant keeping those in her life out of harm's way. He had to find a way to fix this without breaking his word.
