"I'll try." He answered much more honestly, pausing a moment before the elevator. "Which floor is yours?"

She gave him the floor number before looking up at him again. After a moment,s he smiled softly. "Okay...I just have one question. Am I safe with you, Baekhyung-si?"

Moving into the small box, he hit the appropriate button before he looked down to her, wanting to make sure that she knew he was telling the truth. "Beyond a shadow of a doubt. I won't be any danger to you."

When he looked down at her, she realize how close he was for the first time. Her cheeks flushed softly and her breath caught as her eyes locked on his. She was suddenly very aware of being in the elevator, an enclosed place ar too hot... She took a shaky breath for a moment before she spoke softly. "You can..you can put me down now. I can walk the rest of the way. I"d..actually like to walk the rest of the way." Her room was nearly at hte top..this would be a long ride.

"Sure." He nodded, setting her gently on her feet as he was too aware of the tight space they were going to be sharing for the next minute or so. Elevators were an interesting place, he thought in passing, making sure she was all right to stand.

Feeling his hand on her waist, the nearness of him, she leaned back against the wall, taking another shaky breath. It was from the injury, she told herself, not the fact that this very attractive man was very very close. Why wasn't their air conditioning in elevators? As she opened her mouth to speak, a soft ding from the doors rang through the elevator and the doors slid open to welcome too many people into the tight space. Many of them forced their way in, making the already tight space tighter. When a particularly creepy man turned his attention toward her, she saw the intent to approach in his eyes even before he started walking to her corner of the elevator.

With a soft growl, Baekhyun shifted to accommodate the new guests before he saw the man leering at his new friend. Shifting to switch places with her, he guided her into the corner and placed himself between her and everyone else, bracing an arm against the wall so that the shifting drunken bodies wouldn't bump into her and make her injuries any worse.

The crew boarded on the third floor. At the shift if Baekhyun and the others pushing into him to force him even closer, she flushed. Eyes slowly moving to meet his, she felt her heart jump. She could feel his breath on her cheek, the heat of his arm next to her, cradling her against the wall. Realizing how nice his scent was, her cheeks burned and she dropped her gaze at from his, unaware she was holding her breath until the elevator stopped once again to let the rear of the people off on the eleventh floor. They still had another twenty to go...

He watched her, seeing her face heat and her gaze drop, wondering what was on her mind. It was so easy, he thought, to lean down and to press his lips to hers... Catching himself moving forward, he stopped, running his teeth over his lip. What was getting into him? It must be the elevator.

As they sat alone in the elevator again, she felt the heart grow hotter. It should have cooled when the others left...yet she was burning up. She slowly moved her gaze back up to him, biting her lip fora moment. "They're gone now..." he could back uo, her mind finished...she wasn't really sure why she didn't just say the words out loud..

Realizing that they were indeed alone, he breathed a soft apology, forcing himself to take a step back and letting his arm fall from the wall. "Um...sorry. I didn't want them crushing into you, and one of those guys looked like he was going to try something."

She shook her head. "Don't...don't be sorry. If rather be pressed up against you than a stranger." Realizing what she said, her cheeks burned and she looked down. "I..I mean.... I just mean...at least I know you won't try anything...

Though for a moment he had nearly kissed her, his mind offered before he shook his head with a weak laugh. "Good point. I think they were coming back from a party or something..."

"Most likely...from the smell of alcohol..." she nodded, feeling dizzy again. She gave a soft groan, leaning against the wall heavily. "Thanks...for looking out for me again. I'm just sorry you had to get so close to do it. I know that can't have been comfortable for you..."

"It was fine." he shook his head with another soft chuckle. "How are you feeling?" He added, concern returning as he saw her shift.

"Fine? It was fine? Way to flatter a girl you claim is above average." She laughed softly, nodding. "I'm okay. Just got dizzy again. Needed something sturdy to lean on.."

"I didn't want to make you uncomfortable." He shook his head with a laugh of his own. "Especially after saving you from one creep and maybe another in the space of a few hours."

"So...if you didn't care about making me uncomfortable..what would you have said?" She flushed softly, looking up st him witha small smile.

"That there's something incredibly intimate about elevators." He pointed out with a smirk, shooting her a wink. "And it was a prime opportunity to get close to you."

"Intimate? What do you mean intim-oh.." she remembered how close he'd been, the feel of his breath on her cheek. She took a small breath, laughing weakly. "And...did you want to? Get close to me?"
