They stayed in that position for a couple of minutes, with Kana gently combing his hair with her fingers, and he was pressed close to her chest.

Then, his hands flew to her waist, and she became aware of his warm breath on her chest. Kana's face turned reddish and without second thoughts, she pushed him away from her.

She then laughed tensely.

"Ha-ha, you are taking advantage of my kindness, Ken."

She noticed that Ken's eyes were not as sad as they were earlier. She smiled to herself in satisfaction.

"Who was taking advantage whom?" He remarked, "If I remembered correctly, it was you who pulled me close to your-"

"Enough!" She said shyly. At his amused expression, she shook her head in disbelief.

'How resilient could he get? He was just so down a minute ago and now he is already teasing me.'

She went back to doing what she was supposed to do. Cook dinner. She put on her apron and deliberately ignored his presence. She is aware that he was watching her every move, and she pretended not to be affected.

"Ken, I would appreciate it if you would help me put those things inside the ref." She said, and he followed.

For the following minutes, Kana busied herself with the food, while Ken arranged everything she bought inside the refrigerator, and some utensils on the cupboard.

He also set up the food trays and began to brew the coffee.

She has finished cooking in less than 30 minutes, and they decided to just eat at the kitchen table.

After they finished eating, Ken proceeded with washing the dishes. She stayed in the kitchen, watching him do the chores that she found so sexy in men, household chores.

She knows that Ken was aware of her watching him, but he just ignored her presence. He looked so indifferent to her, and she found it so unfair. Because if it's her, she would have been so conscious of the way she moves.

'You would be aware of me soon enough, Ken.'

She did not realize that he already finished and once he did, he cocked one eyebrow at her. She just gave him an innocent smile.

"Since it's still early to sleep, shall we go to the living room? I want to discuss with you the possible reason why you are being targeted."

He said in a serious tone, and that's what they did. However, before they started, Kana remembered the flowers, so she took the flower vase that she bought earlier and set the roses on it. She brought it with her to the living room and placed it on the center table.

When she sat on the sofa opposite to him, she noticed him frowning at the flowers.

"What's wrong?" She asked.

"Do you like flowers that much?"

She laughed softly.

"Ken, all women like flowers." She stated, and it earned him a deeper frown.

He never considered that. He had never seen Yuki taking any particular interest in flowers before, or maybe she has a partic

d when she saw that his bed was already neatly made. It means that he was already awake. She glanced around the room, but he was not in.

'Must be in the toilet or bathroom', she mused and was about to go out of his room when the door opened. She turned immediately and she was greeted by a Greek God.

No, it was Ken, appearing like a Greek God in his half naked form with only a towel covering his waist down.

He seemed to have just finished shower.

'You should turn around, Kana!'

Yes, she should have turned around, as the proper thing to do. But she was so mesmerized by his beauty, with a few beads of water dripping from his wet hair, trailing along the muscled contours of his well-toned body. She swallowed and could not find the courage to tear her eyes off him.

He looks so deliciously tempting.

Until he spoke to her.

"Kana, it is not proper for a girl to be in a man's room…uninvited." He said, with a knowing smirk on his face.

Darn it!

'He knows how attractive he is and he is making fun of me.' She thought.

But still, she stole one last glance at him before she turned her back at him, her chest heaving and she was almost salivating at the feast in front of her this morning.

"I-I just came to call you. The coffee would soon be cold, so-"

She let out a small scream when she felt his arms wrapped around her waist from behind. His body was pressed close to her, and his breath was tickling the small hairs on her nape.

"K-Ken!" She gasped, her heart raced in a moment, she suddenly turned cold and stiffened like a bamboo pole.

"I should teach you a lesson to be mindful for your actions, Kana. Coming in a man's room…will definitely have consequences." He brought his face very close to her ears, and she could feel her whole face reddening to the roots of her hair.

Then, before she can react, she felt his lips on the side of her neck.
