"I know." He moved his free hand to cover hers, letting out a contented sigh as he felt her shift. "But I definitely can't complain about this."

"Can't complain? I thought you'd push me away." She laughed weakly, relaing as she felt his hand on her own. Her fingers brushed the muscles of his stomach gently before she turned her head, forehead resting still on hisback. AS she spoke, her lips brushed his skin gently, absently. "I thought you'd be angry...that I wouldn't listen to you before..."

"Why would I ever want to do that?" He asked softly, shivering lightly at the feel of her lips at his back. "I...couldn't be angry with you, Somin. Not even if I tried."

"because I'm so close... Because I'm touching you..." Could he feel her heart pounding against his back? Did he know how long she'd wanted to hold him, to be held by him? As she heard the last, she gave a weak smile. "I bet...i could manage it eventually..."

Turning after a long moment, he wound his arms around her shoulders, pulling her to his chest. "You have...no idea how long I've wanted to be this close to you." He mumbled without thinking, resting his cheek against the top of her head. He had never been so close to anyone, he thought, unless his life was on the line.

As she felt his arms around her, her breath caught. Her cheeks flushed and she felt her cheek rest against his bare chest. With ehr heart pounding in her throat, she slowly lifted her arms to wrap around his waist gently. "You've...wanted to be close to me...?" Her eyes slowly moved to his and she bit her lip. His warmth was keeping her shivers at bay, feeling his arms around her was far more comforting than she expected... "I'm surprised you want to be near me at all when I just shoved a knife into your gut."

"To save my life. To save both of our lives." he pointed out, chuckling as he gave her a gentle squeeze. "And...I shoved a burning piece of iron against your stomach first."

"And my back. And I returnedthat favor, too." She gave a weak laugh, feeling his squeeze and finding far more comfort in his touch than she expected. After a moment, realizing she was still wearing dripping clothes, she cleared her throat. "ARent...aren't I cold?I mean..don't I feel cold? You're not...wearing a shirt and..and I'm wet." He was so warm against her. "ARen't I..bothering you>"

"No, I'm feeling warmer already." His voice betrayed his smile, still resting his cheek on her head. "This is...anything but a bother. I promise." In fact, it felt more right than anything he had felt in his memory.

"You...have never held a woman like this before, have you?" Her heart was racing, cheeks flushing. Her fingers moved to his back, tracing gentle patterns into his skin as she took in his scent. He was so...comforting, made her feel sosafe. The last time she'd thougth of something like this, the last time she'd wanted it..had been with Ryuhwan. Why did she always find her attraction to danger...?

"Never." He shook his head with gentle sigh. "I...don't know why I waited so long. It's...the one thing that's happened today that's felt right." Then, with a soft chuckle, he added, "But...everything I do around you does."

"I can tell you've never done it." Her heart was pounding. Could he feel it against his chest now? Her fingers remained on his back, unwilling to let go, yet unsure what to do... "...because I'm not sure you understand."

"In the south...holding..holding a woman like this isn't exactly..innocent." She shook her head, tilting her head back to look up at him. "It indicates...more emotions than I'm sure you're willing to show." She bit her lip, wet hair falling in her eyes. "Holding me, holding anyone, like this...isn't...something you want to be doing....unless you're prepared for the...assumptions that can be made."

"Assumptions like what? That I have feelings for you?" He had nearly lost her, he thought. Twice. Was it worth nearly losing her a third time, or should he take the chance? Not wanting to leave anything to the chance of some new catastrophe stopping him, he took a deep breath, aware of his heartbeat racing. "If anyone thought that...it wouldn't be wrong."

Her eye smoved to his, locking on his as she stared in shock. Hd he just admitted to liking her? Did he understand the words he'd just said? Did he realize...what he had just said? Heart pounding eve faster, she slowly shook her head. "Do you...understand what that...that statement means? Is that..some other kind of weird slang used in the North? Does..having...having feelings mean something else where you come from?"

"No. In the North, I'd be killed for daring to have a life outside of the military. For being weak enough to want to do something like this, to want to be with someone that makes me feel...alive. That makes me feel like I have the potential to be anything." He shook his head, face flushing as he wondered if he had gone too far. He'd just gotten her back, after all... "I understand exactly what I'm saying, Somin."

"I...can't...be with someone like you, Haejin." She shook her head, heart pounding. He was dangerous, he was a spy, even if he inteded to defect, he was still a North Korean. He was...a murderer and he could change his mind about the South, about his friends, about her in an instant. Why was she always attracted to danger..? Afer a moment, a long moment, she looked up at him, meeting his gaze. He knew what he was saying..? That meant he did like her. At least a little. "...It's...physical, I"m sure. It'll...it'll pass...."

"If it were just physical, it wouldn't have lasted from the day we met." He shook his head with a sigh. "I'm not in any state to ask you to be mine, no matter how much I want you to be. Especially not after what happened today. And I hope...that I haven't lost your friendship from my lies or from my feelings. I...just don't want to lie to you again."

She she looked up at him, heard what he said about her, about how he felt for her, her heart raced. She let her fingers rest gently on his chest, thinking his words over. He wanted her...and she knew it was dangerous to give herself to him...but if he was going back to the North...if he was leaving her...this could be her last night to see him. She may never see him again. Before she could think better of it, her hand moved to the side of his neck, then the back of his neck, pressing a soft kiss to his lips for only a moment beforepulling back and looking up at him, meeting his gaze. If he kissed her, if she leaned up and kisse dhim again..that would be it. She'd give herself over to him...
