"I"m s-" she cut off, watching him lean closer. Her heart jumped, her breath caught and her eyes moved to meet his. For a moment she wondered if he would kiss her after all...but she knew better. Once again, she wasn't good enough for someone like him... Watching his eyes, she took a deep breath, finding her voice after a long moment, though it still trembled. "I...You want to move on..? Do you...I mean...I..I could help you. It's..kind of what I do."

"What you do?" He asked, tilting his head in curiosity as he made no move to put any distance between them. Giving a small, hesitant smile, he added, "You'd...really help me?"

"I'm a counselor. When I'm not in school, anyway.." Her cheeks flushed as she still looked up at him, unaware that the egg was starting to stick to the pan. "I took an oath to help those in need. Not just those I feel are worthy. Everyone deserves help if they're willing to ask for it." She flushed darker, taking a shaky breath. "You...are really close."

"And you really think I can be helped?" He asked, the question showing more vulnerability than he had intended to let her see before he heard the last, a smile pulling at his lips. "I am? I didn't notice...but your eggs are starting to burn."

"I think anyone can be helped as long as they want to be..." she trailed off, looking up at him, taking a shaky breath. He smiled...his smile was stunning, even the little half-assed one he gave her now. Her cheeks flused darker as she took a deep breath. "You are. I can feel your...your b.." trailing off as she looked up at him again. REalizing her egs were burning, her cheeks flushed and she let out oa soft curse, turning her attention back to the pn.

"I'm sorry for distracting you." He chuckled softly, watching her as she worked. After a long moment, he took a deep breath. "If you want to help...I'd like to do what I can. Living like this isn't going to do me any good."

Flushing darker as he mentioned distracting her. Biting her lip, she shifted the eggs, saving them from burning as and shook her head. Her hair fell over one shoulder, revealing the pale expanse of her neck to him. "If I help you,I'll view it asa job. That means I should be paid...whether that's during counseling or after you've moved on. Are you alright wut that?" Treating it as a job, taking money would help remind her that he wasn't a friend...and he wasn't a date. She was there to help him, that's it.

"I'm fine with that. Whatever price you think is fair. I'm taking up your time, after all." He nodded, leaning against the counter. She was something else, he thought in passing. "Yesterday you couldn't even begin to trust me...now you're wanting to help me get over my ex. You're different."

"Yesterday you were a creep thay hit on me for no good reason. Today you're the guy that saved my life." She shrugged, cheeks flushing, trying to ignore the voice in the back of her mind that told her that wasn't all there was to it...

"I'm glad that I was able to change your opinion." The response was more sincere than he intended, feeling his face heat as he realized that he wasn't joking as much as he planned.

"It does to me." He replied with a shrug, brushing his fingers through his hair once gain. Clearing his throat, he added, "Um, is there anything I can help with?"

Shaking her head, forcing herself to focus on the eggs instead of on him, she smiled weakly. "You can dig through the cabinet and find something to add to this if you want..." Her heart needed to stop...before it could burst out of her chest..

Nodding, he followed her direction, rifling through the cabinet above them to try to find something that would go well with what she had completed. "Are you all right?" He asked with a small smirk. "You seem a little...flustered."

"I'm not used to having someoneBeing so close. Especially someone half naked..." she could feel him above her, rummaging. As she turned to gather a few other things for the eggs, she miscalculated where he stood, running face first into his chest, hand coming up to steady herself.

With a soft startled sound, he lifted a hand to lay on her arm to steady her. "You all right?" He asked, stooping a little to see her more clearly.

"Don't worry about it." He shook his head, relaxing a little as his hair fell into his eyes. "Looks like I'm just in your way every time I turn around."

"Yeah? Why might that be?" He asked, tilting his head as he watched her with a smile. That certainly wasn't the response he was expecting.
