It was night time, and she has just finished taking a long, warm bath. She put on her sleepwear and laid on her bed with her arms spread above her head. Kana could not help but smile to herself when she re-played that scene on her mind.

"You can pay me with...yourself."

When the words came out of his mouth, it sent shivers from her spine to her head, and she felt her face sting with an unexplainable sensation.

Exhilaration? Temptation? Eagerness?

Nevertheless, she felt elated by the prospect that Ken was ready to acknowledge her worth. She would pay…herself.

'Wait, what does it mean? She misheard it, right?'

"What do you mean…by myself?" She has to confirm, if what she thinks and what he means are the same.

Ken moistened his lower lip with the tip of his tongue, while his eyes was focused on her eyes.

This man is indeed toying with me, she thought.

"Pay me in a different manner…with your body." He said nonchalantly.

She could not comprehend what is going on in his mind. Ken has never acted towards her in a perverted manner before. Or did he finally notice that I'm not a kid anymore?

"Be specific, please, " she said in a small voice, "I don't want to misunderstand you."

Her fingers were interlaced on her lap, and she can't help but look at him in anticipation.

Ken rolled his tongue inside his cheek, obviously suppressing himself to laugh at how uncomfortable their conversation was making her.

After a while, his expression returned to his normal unreadable one.

"If I become your bodyguard, you have to become my servant. This is the rule of an equivalent exchange. I will protect you 24 hours a day, and in return, you will follow everything I say. Every…thing." He drawled the last word, making sure that his emphasis was not lost on her muddled head.

"Oh, " she said, leaning back on her chair.

The look of disappointment on her face was so palpable that his lips twitched and he cocked an eyebrow at her.

"You look like you were expecting a different answer from me, " he remarked sardonically.

She nodded, but shook her head profusely in haste afterwards.

"I was…expecting your answer, " at the look of disbelief on his face, she shrugged her shoulders in defeat. "Well, I was also expecting more, like you want me to pay you with…you know…" she said, her eyes moved aimlessly.

"I don't know, " he abruptly responded, almost too sudden, "tell me."

"Like…s-sex, " she said, her cheeks blushing scarlet. When she looked at him, he has this expression that what she just said was so hilarious.

But instead of laughing, he crossed his legs, and crossed his arms over his chest.

"Kana, if you want to throw yourself at me, I won't say no. But…" his tone became lustful, "make sure that you are ready for it. I might be too much for your…undeveloped body."

She felt annoyed, humiliated, and irritated. She felt the urge to slap him, but of cours

her throat, and sat on the edge of her bed. Her gaze wandered on him, seated on the sofa. He was wearing a different attire this time, than the one he was wearing during the interview. He has on a plain white t-shirt that clung almost too sexily on his well-sculpted body. The front of the shirt is tucked in on his faded black jeans, showing the metal buckle of his belt. He was also sporting a nice pair of black boots.

A one totally hot specimen of a man.

"Kana, how many times do I have to tell you not to drool over me?"

Ken's voice snapped her back to reality, and she giggled at him, while making a face. She earned a scowl from him.

"Honestly, why are you here?" she asked.

"For the contract."

She frowned. "I know we have a contract, what I want to know is why you are here in my bedroom? You are supposed to protect me, right?"

"Indeed, " he nodded.

"Then what are you doing here?"

"Protecting you."

"In my bedroom."

"In your bedroom."

"Ken, are you making a fool out of me?" She said, her eyes turned suspicious.

"No, I am doing my part of the bargain." He stood up and sat on the other side of the bed. Then, he took off his boots, and unbuckled his belt.

Her eyes widened.

'Wait! Is he…but I'm not yet ready!'

Her face blushed with the prospect of what he was about to do to her.

This is too sudden!

'It's alright, Kana. You washed yourself properly when you took a bath. It's alright!'

"K-Ken, what are you doing?" She asked stammering, her heart began to pounce wildly in anticipation.

"I'm going to sleep." He said, and with his arms under his head, he laid down on her bed.

At her bewildered expression, he turned to her with laughing eyes, "How can I protect you when I'm far from you, right? Come on, let's sleep. You have to wake up early tomorrow and cook our breakfast. By the way, I always prefer to eat rice in the morning, not bread."

With that, he closed his eyes.
