Her fingers moved constantly on her sides. She does not want to sound so demure nor she does not want to burden him. But when he stared at her with an impatient look, she walked towards the bed like a robot, and laid down obediently. She pulled the cover to her chin and turned on her side so that her back was on him. She moved until she was almost at the edge of the bed. She held her breath.

Then she felt him move, and she bit her upper lip.

'Be still, my heart!' She was willing her heart to beat normally, which has started to pound so rapidly on her chest.

"Kana, why are you acting too jittery lately? Don't you remember that we used to sleep in the tent together for so many times already every night?"

His voice came like a whisper on her ears, because he has spoken very near her, and she could actually feel the warmth of his body within the sheets. After all, there is only one sheet, and they have to share with it.

"I-it's different." She managed to say the two words with so much effort, as if she was having difficulty in breathing.

"What is?" He asked.

"I was in work mode then, " she said.

"Even the seduction stuff?" He asked, and if she just turned around, she would have seen the laughter on his eyes.

She swallowed hard. She nodded without saying anything. She was afraid that if she moved more, she might physically feel him.

"So, you were not serious in seducing me then?"

"No..I mean yes." She bit her lower lip, she felt so uneasy because she can now smell his good smell. Ken always has this minty scent on him, he always smell so fresh and clean.

He never smoke and very seldom that he drinks alcohol.

"Really…so when you are in work mode, you don't care if we sleep together?"

She nodded, which is true. When she was doing her work as an assassin, she always try to be as professional as she could be. Although she has tried to do many stupid stunts with him before, but those were when they were during their slack time. She never fool around when they work because she knew very well that one mistake would lead to death.

She screamed suddenly when she felt herself being pulled towards him, and the next thing she saw is his pair of deep blue eyes, staring at her. She was underneath him, but she could not feel his body. It was because used his elbow to hold his weight.

"Kana, we have a contract right?"

She nodded.

"In return for my service to protect you, you promised to do everything that I say, right?"

She hesitated for a moment, but when she felt his weight on her, she nodded quickly.

The smile he gave her took her breath away. It was a sexy and stimulating smile, and she could only stare at him with her mouth slightly parted.

Ken's eyes noticed her slightly parted lips, and before he realized what had happened, his lips already grazed hers.

It was a light and gentle kiss…at the beginning.

Until Ken's tongue became probing, tasting every corner

ing the dreamy look on her face that Ken noticed, but he did not comment on it.

They arrived at her work at exactly 8:20AM, 10 minutes before the time. Ken was the one who drove her car, which she found out later on that he had sent to the repair shop for the change of tires. It was delivered at the apartment later in the afternoon, but she never noticed.

Kana was touched by how much Ken was almost doing everything for her. It felt like he was really taking care of her as he promised.

Then when she was about to open the back door, it suddenly opened from the inside.

"Kana!"

She was surprised to see the person who came from the inside. It was the manager's son, Kazuki. She smiled brightly.

"Kazuki! When did you arrive?" She said, her excited voice was not lost on Ken's ears, who also walked towards them and was just standing behind her, with his hands on his pockets.

He eyed the man who came from inside the store, and at Kana's outburst, he noted that he must be somebody she is familiar with.

Kazuki looked behind her, as he noticed the tall and handsome man behind Kana. His eyes narrowed a bit, but he kept a smile on his lips. He turned his gaze towards Kana.

"Just last night. I came here earlier to surprise you." He was saying the words to Kana, but his eyes were focused on Ken.

Ken, on the other hand, met his gaze with his indifferent stare.

"Who is he?" Kazuki asked.

It was only then that Kana realized that the two do not know each other, yet. She smiled to Ken, then to Kazuki.

"Ken, this is Kazuki, the manager's son, and this is Ken, my…friend."

"I'm Kana's boyfriend-to-be. Nice to meet you." Kazuki cut her off, and she looked at him with stunned expression.

'What the heck? Boyfriend-to-be?'

Ken's sexy lips lifted to one corner, and he looked at Kana first then, to Kazuki.

"Really, " his voice was calm but Kana noted his amused eyes. "I'm Kana's bedmate. Nice to meet you, too."
