The Mirror - Garden
NoWealthNoRuin HK's Territory
A grand courtyard within a hotel on the inside of the border between the territories. It's been taken and retaken so many times that not even the family heads know who originally laid claim to it.

He shifted a little after the song ended, asking softly if that was all right before he realized that she had ended up drifting off. Allowing himself a small smile, filing all worries and insistence that he was getting in too deep, he settled down once again, holding her to his chest as he followed her example.

(Well have to wobbly them...maybe toafter she's healed. The next morning she went back to being closed and cruel but she's been warming up to him? Has no more stitches, no more risk of bleeding, just minor aches now?

((Gotcha covered. XD))

When he wasn't in the city, Himchan found that he was spending more time at the house, relieving the guards he had posted in favor of watching after Soon Deok himself. He was more relaxed there, away from the prying eyes of those that would watch his every move. He cooked for her, played music, even sang on occasion when the mood struck him. He hadn't realized just how much having another person around could ease the loneliness he hadn't realized he had been carrying. Even through her distance or cruelty--that he was glad to notice was becoming fewer and further between--he was decidedly happier.

The surgery had gone well, though her mind hadn't really healed much after the discovery of what she was. Who was her family? They wereMonsters like her? They had to be... these thoughts had plagued her, resulting in several foul moods directed toward her captor, no matter how kind he was. The more time he spent with her, thr more she realized he wasn't so bad... he even sang to her, performed for her, cooked for her. It was like having a roommate in a home she couldn't leave...and it was starting to feel less likea jail though her health was worsening thanks to the wolf. Thankfully, she was damn good at hiding it..as she leaned on the balcony railing, listening to the soft music from the stereo inside, letting her body relax. He clothes had gotten dirty while she walked in the gardens outside. She'd cleaned up and decided to wear one of his shirts while she waited for her own to clean, glad it covered the tops of bare thighs... her hair fell messily and wet down her back. She found herself wondering when Himchan would be home..she was lonely, she was bored...and she did not just refer to this place as home..."

After a long and ridiculous night of playing cat-and-mouse with the latest team Eunkwang had sent after him, Himchan was glad to be home. Bidding his driver of the evening good night as he went inside with a plastic bag in each hand, he called out a greeting to his captor-turned-houseguest as he kicked off his shoes and set the bags on the counter in the kitchen. His suit jacket was soon discarded on the back of one of the bar stools, rolling up his sleeves and removing his tie with a weary sigh.

Hearing the voice, she forgot for a moent that she wore one of his shirts, that she wore no pants, taht her clothes were in the laundry room directly attached to the kitchen... her heart jumped at the sound of his call, trying to ignore the excitement, the happiness she felt htat he was home. She made her way to the staircase, stopping at the top to look down the overlook into the kitchen. He was taking off his tie... he always looked good when he took off that tie. "...Are you cooking?"

"Something simple." He nodded, pulling ingredients from the bags and setting them on the counter. "I need to unwind after the trouble I ran into today...how are you?" He asked, turning around to face her and stopping for a moment as he took in the sight of her wearing his shirt...and little else. She looked beautiful, he thought, having to blink a moment before catching himself and shaking his head with a smile.

"something simple? Like what?" She started down the stairs, hearing him mention trouble. Was it Eunkwang again? As she came to the bottom of the stairs and he turned toward her, she froze, suddenly very aware of how little she wore. Her cheeks flushed softly. "I um..my clothes got dirty in the yard. they're washing. I just needed something to wear until they're done." Flushing even darker as she tugged at the bottom of the shirt, she took a deep breath. "They should be finished in about an hour..."

"Don't worry about it." He waved her off with a smile, feeling his face heat as he found that against all logic, she looked incredible in his clothes. This wasn't good. "I was just thinking of frying some meat and making a pot of rice." He added in response to her question. "I thought about getting takeout, but cooking calms me down."

As she watched his cheeks flush, her brie furrowed. Dropping her gaze, she thought his words over. "That sounds great. If course I can't complain. I don't cook anyway. " with a weak smile, she looked up at. Calming him down..? Was he upset? "Do you want to talk about it?" But she already knew the answer. Of course he didn't. He wouldn't want to talk to something like her. She wasa monster, she didn't even deserve being in the same room asa human.... she could already feel her mood turning foul..which meant more insults, more harsh words directed to the man if she didn't leave... it was an effort, she realized, to get him to hate her..to treat her like the monster she'd discovered she was...

He nearly brushed her off as he usually did, not wanting to burden her with his issues, but with what had happened that day, he wasn't sure that he should decline the offer once again. "Would you mind listening?" He asked after a moment, a little unsure if she was offering out of politeness or not. These rare moments of civility between her usual foul moods were getting more frequent, he found, and he was found that he wanted to do something to make this one last. "If not, that's fine, I wouldn't want to burden you."

She had started to walk away before he could answer. But when he asked her to talk, to listen, she froze. Her eyes moved to his and she stared in shock for a moment before clearing her throat. "You...want to talk to me..?" What about what she was? It didn't bother him? He wasn't brushing her off like he usually did. Something must have happened...something big.

Realizing that she might belittle him for wanting to unload what was on his mind, he moved to pull a pan from the cabinet. "If you don't mind. If it's a bother, we can talk about whatever you want." If she wanted to talk at all, his mind finished.

She still watched, more curious, more surprised than anything... "you want to talk to me at all? Even..even if I don't want to talk about how rough your day was?"

"Is that such a strange thing?" He asked, moving to start the rice, rolling his sleeves up as his hair fell from its usual swept-back state to hang in his eyes.

"Why would you want to talk to me? I'm-" she cut off, eyes darkening as she lowered her gaze. She was what? An animal? Worthless? Less than human..?

"You're what?" He asked, raising an eyebrow as he looked over to her. "You're easy to talk to? You're not afraid to tell me what's on your mind?"

She looed up at him, listening to his words, trying to ignore the way her cheeks flushed softly. She bit her lip. "...I"m...an animal." She hadn't told him up to this point that the fact that she wasn't human bothered her this much...

"No you're not, you're a werewolf." He corrected, realizing with a bump that perhaps part of her animosity wasn't his doing after all. "And you're just as much of a person as I am. Has this been bothering you this whole time?"

Avoiding his gaze, she turned her head to look at the ground. She bit her lip, taking a deep breath. Why did it bother her so much that he knew? Why did it bother her that he could see so easily into her.. She shook her head. "It..doesn't matter. Forget it." She shook her head again, fingers pulling her shirt a little lower again, biting her lip. She wasn't human. She was a monster. Why didn't he see that?
