Giving a soft groan, he closed his eyes, sniffling thickly. "Head hurts too much to eat...I haven't...gotten sick like this in years." His voice rasped as his throat protested the movement, running his tongue over dry lips.

She sighed softly. "Just...stay in bed. 'll be right back." moving away from the bedside, she gathered cool water, a rag and some ice. Dumping the ice in the bowl of water and then ringing out the rag, she returned back to his side, gently dabbing at hs forehead, his cheeks, his neck. "Why didn't you go home? You should have known you would get sick. You've commented on that hall window countless times."

"I thought...maybe I could make everything right." He leaned into the comfortingly cool touch, unable to open his eyes as the stress and worry was still clear on his face. "I just...just wanted to know you were okay."

"By catching your death? Because now not only am I terrified, I have to--" she cut off, looking down at him. She bi her lip, finding it incredibly difficult to remember why she was so afraid. "You wanted to know if I was okay? You spent..the entire night in te hallway...alone...because you wanted to know if I was okay? You could have forced your way in..."

"I couldn't. I didn't want to. You were scared enough...I wanted it to be your choice." He shook his head with a deepening frown. "You don't...you don't have to do this for me.... You can call Ravi or Hyuk...if that would make you feel better..."

She bit her lip, thinking his words over. If she called Ravi or Hyuk that would only tell them that she knew more than she should. It would likely put her in even more danger. With a small shake of her head, she looked down at him after ringing out the rag again. "This is my choice. I...I know I don't have to do this. I could have left you out there...but I feel responsible for maing you like this. I...I don't want you to get sicker because of me. I'm not...that heartless." She bit her lip, fingers brushing his cheek, not noticing at first that she wasn't using the rag to touch him...she was actually..concerned for him. "You need to sweat out your fever. That's...that's the first step in getting you better. That means you better not leave these blankets, do you understand?"

Too tired to argue that sweating anything out sounded like more torture than the illness itself, he nodded, meeting her eyes once again as he leaned into her touch. "I was the idiot that made the mistake in the first place. I should...should have told you sooner...but I was so scared that you'd do this..."

"Made what mistake? Being a wolf? That's not something you can help..Is it? " there wasn't a cure, was there? At the last, she shook her head. "You didn't have to tell me anything. I mean..I wouldn't have believed you,anyway. I would have kicked you out, told you not to come back...I would have thought you were crazy if you honestly believed it. And..." seeing the way he leaned into her touch, she couldn't help but feel warmth spread through her. He really seemed to enjoy her being so near... she thought back to their sessions together, her attempt at helping him get over his ex..she'd began to have feelings for him was that why she felt so...so betrayed? After anther moment, she moved her fingers through his hair. "I won't lie to you...I'm terrified. Of you, of your friends, of all of it...but...I won't let you suffer like this because I left you out there. You're stubborn. I should have known you wouldn't leave." She was exhausted...it had been a long night and she hadn't slept well at all... "it have to make a call. Stay here, okay? "

"Not telling you. Letting you see me as a monster instead of a man..." He shook his head with a weary sigh. "I wanted you to know who I was...not what I was." At the last, he nodded, the thought of police or repercussions far from his mind as he focused only on the fact that already he was wearing entirely too much to be under so many blankets. "Okay..."

She nodded, stepping outside, wondering if he'd be able to hear her. She called into work and then into school, informing them that her boyfriend had to go to hospital and she was the only person he had to look after him. Thanking both for understanding, she moved back into the room, ringing out the rag once more before brushing his forehead. "What you are doesn't...doesn't make you a monster. I know that's the rosi used before but...but I didn't mean it like that. I meant the..the way you were acting. You were acting like a monster, that doesn't mean you are one. But the way you just...just threw them like they were nothing, over...over nothing at all..just because sometimes they bang on my door..." she shuddered at the memory.

He jumped a little as he heard her return, brought from a half-doze back to the present. He offered her a weak smile before he heard her speak, he chewed on his lip for a moment before shaking his head. "They weren't banging...they were breaking in. I heard...heard something about teaching you a lesson. What they planned to do...it was heinous." He didn't want to disturb her with the details, he thought with a frown. "I couldn't...couldn't let them try. I was so angry, I...I lost control."

She was in the process of brushing the rag across his cheek when she heard the words. Her hand froze and she looked up at him in surprise. Heart pounding in her chest, she bit her own lip at his words, wondering just how bad things could have been for him to have reacted like this. After a long moment, she found her words again. "...you saved my life again...?"

"I don't know if...if they would have killed you...but I wasn't going to find out." He coughed once again, throat starting to burn as he lifted an arm to cover his mouth. "They...should leave you alone for good this time."

"Saving my life doesn't necessarily mean keeping me alive. It could mean...you saved me from something horrible, unimaginable. Somethign that would make me simply..not-dead..but not alive." She shook her head, hearing the cough. With a frown, she moved her fingers to his hand, holding it gently. "Stay under the blanket. Forget manners for now." Nodding at the last, she bit her lip, thinking his words, the situation over. "The...the sooner this fever breaks, the sooner you'll get better. So...I'm sorry for this but.." she trailed off, moving to climb into the bed next to him. She didn't get under the blankets, nto wanting him to be uncomfortable with her nearness, but she curled up next to him, hand on his shoulder gently, snuggling as close as she could without actually being under the blankets.

"I'm happy to do anything to help you." He visibly relaxed as she moved close to his side, leaning into her without thinking. The heat was almost too much, but knowing she was so close to him was enough to make him feel at least a little better. "I don't want...you to make yourself uncomfortable because of me..."

As she felt him lean into her, her cheeks flushed softly. Her fingers moved over his shoulder gently. "I just...don't want to make you uncomfortable by being so close. After what I said, the way I reacted..and then...after being so...I just don't want you to be uncomfortable, but body heat will help, if...if you don't mind me being this clsoe." A part of her, she realized, wished she could be closer. That wasn't good. That wasn't good at all...

"I'm never uncomfortable around you." He wondered if the fever was loosening his tongue, giving a weak smile. "I didn't expect you to...to invite me in after seeing me like that. After being so scared that you w-wanted to barricade the door."

"Even after I called you a monster?" She smiled weakly, deciding if what he said was true, she could get a little closer. Shifting, she moved her arm around his waist, head resting onhis shoulder, staying close enough to take in his warmth. "I told you...what...what you are isn't why I called you a monster. It was..because of what I thought you were doing." She shook her head. "I'm...I'll be honest, I"m still terrified. I don't know anythinga bout this and my entire world was just turned inside out. I don't know how to handle werewolves and vampires and other thigns...and I don't know if you really wont hurt me...or if you're only saying that to get close, to get my guard down. I don't know if you eat people like the stories or if it's all myth and I...I don't know how to act around you. But..I shouldn't have called you a monster." She shook her head, fingers running over his arm gently. "You're not a monster. AT least..not from what I"ve seen."

"You can ask me whatever you like." He offered, chuckling faintly. "I don't eat people. Silver jewelry burns like an allergy. Silver bullets hurt like a bitch. I only turn when I want, not just because of the moon." After a moment, he seemed to realize just what she was doing, adding, "As much as this is comfortable...I don't...want to get you sick. You have tests coming up, right?" He had heard her mention her schoolwork, not wanting to be any more of a burden to her than he already was.

"You don't...eat raw meat or whatever?" She felt her cheeks heat at his chuckle. WAs it really such an amusing question? With a flush, she shook her head. "And...silver hurts you." She thought back to the mometn he'd kissed her in the alley. she'd been wearing a silver necklace....hadn't it burned him? A part of her wanted to check and see if the pendant had scarred his chest... "Have you ever been shot with silver before? You seem to speak from experience on the bullets." He turned when he wanted to. "...is it..hard to control? Does it ever take over? Do you ever turn when you don't want to, don't intend to...?" As she heard his words, heard him say it was comfortable, she felt her heart give a hard bump. She licked her lips, thinking his words over carefully. "You...don't worry about me. I did this, let me fix it." She didn't mind getting sick..to make up for leaving him out there. School could wait. As she spoke, she snuggled closer, tucking her hed under his chin. Now, if he wasn't comfortable, if he wantd her to move, she would...
