"I can call work for you." He offered without thinking, pulling her shirt up once again and working to clear the blood away from the wounds he found. This beating was intense, he thought, barely able to contain a growl. How easy it would be to end all of her trouble... "Even fake a doctor's note for you. I've seen his handwriting, I can double it if I try." It was a talent he had shown a few times before, capable of using a photographic memory to replicate drawings, paragraphs, even handwriting.

She shook her head. "No, if I don't call myself I"ll be fired for sure. They don't even know who you are." At the mention of doubling a doctor's note, she gave a weak laugh. "You think you could make it convincing? Doctor's signatures are hard to replicate, Sijin." As the rag hit a particularly nasty cut, she gave a soft hiss, the sound turning into a whimper as her fingers curled into fists to fight the pain.

"I'm pretty good. You said so yourself--" He broke off at the sound, feeling his chest twist as he removed the rag immediately, apologies tumbling from his lips as his worry spiked.

She shook her head, finally managing to breathe. "Don't...don't be sorry. It needs to...to be clean.." she took another deep breath. After a moment, she managed a weak smile. "I'm okay. This is..actually minor..." it was the worst she'd suffered yet, actually..

"This is minor? I'd hate to see severe." He shook his head, gingerly resuming his work with much greater care. "I...I'm sorry. For any part of this I influenced. I know he hates me just as much as I hate him."

"You didn't do any of this, don't worry. He didn't like that I wanted to break up. He wanted me to spend the night with him again, that's all..." that was a lie...it was all because shewas with him. She shook her head. "Don't worry so much.I'm okay, alright?"

"I can't stop worrying. Not until you're safe." He mumbled, biting his lip to keep from speaking any more about it. Bandaging her wounds carefully, he frowned as his hair fell into his eyes.

"I am safe,okay? I'm with you and I'm safe. You don't have to act so...defeated." when he fished bandaging her and she managed to sit up and face him, she reached her hand out to brush his hair back from his face. "I'm okay...I promise.'

"You're safe..." He took her hand in his, holding it to his cheek without thinking. "You're okay. I'm...I'm glad. Really." He nodded with a weak smile. "Is there anything else I can do?"

A he took her hand, her cheeks flushed. Her heart jumped and she gave a small smile. Her eyes met his and she let her thumb brush his cheek gently. "Help me get a shirt back on.."

"All right." He nodded, smile gaining a little strength at the touch before he reluctantly let his hand fall away, picking up the shirt as he waited for her to remove the shirt she was wearing completely.

She started to try to lift her shirt herself, cursing at the pain it brought and letting her arms fall at her sides. She couldn't pull the garment up herself... and she couldn't ask him to do it for her, not when she had so recently discovered she was attracted to him.

"I've got it." He said quickly, taking the hem of her shirt from her fingers and gently lifting it over her head. As more of her body was revealed to him, he swallowed hard, trying very hard to keep his thoughts on the most innocent path possible. No matter his feelings for her, this was his friend. His savior. She needed him to help her, he thought. Anything beyond that could wait.

Flushing as she felt his warm fingers graze her skin once more, she looked up at him. As he pulled her shirt from her skin and set it aside, she still watched him, unable to tear her gaze from him. She was reminded, briefly, of the time she'd helped him in the back, feeling his skin under her fingers, the lines of hard muscles, the scars and cuts that littered his skin. She'd been attracted to him, even then. Shivering as the air conditioner kicked on, she flushed softly, looking up at him again. "Sorry..you have to help me with this, too."

"Don't be sorry." He shook his head, face heating as he set the shirt aside, bundling the new one and slipping the neck over her head to save her the pain of reaching to do it herself. "I told you...I'm happy to do what I can."

Thanking him weakly for helping her with the shirt, she shifted just enough to make things easier on him. As she slipped her arms thorgh the shirt, she felt the sleeves fall past her fingertips and the bottom pool around her waist. She smiled weakly. "You're...amazing, you know that?"

Smiling fondly as the shirt nearly engulfed her, he tilted his head at the question, straightening the hem without thinking. "Why do you say that?"

She shook her head. "Everything you've been through, everything you've learned...yet you still keep such a kind, pure heart." Biting her lip, she looked up st him again and smiled softly. "Sometimes...I wish I could be as strong as you.."

"I learned to be strong from you." He shook his head with a soft sigh, brushing her hair out of her eyes. "All of this pain, all of this torture you go through...and you're still only worried about your loved ones. You always work and give and bend...but you never break. But you also never take time or energy for yourself."

"Are you telling me to take time for myself, then?" She laughed softly, weakly, fingers moving to her pants now. "Can I use you for support?"
