Protection (Jin Story) Pt. 8

I just want to apologize for not posting in a really long time. But I hope this will make you happy!
Once at the club, Lee let out a big yawn. Jin saw and reached for her hand. "Are you okay? You seem tired. We can go home if you need to. " Lee looked down at his hand on hers. She felt her sanity ease a little. Smiling, she answered, "I'm okay. I just want to dance and have a good time."
They got inside and found her friends. She quickly ordered a shot and a mix drink. Her and her friends laughed and talked for a while. Lee went to dance and Jin joined. They danced separately for a few songs then Lee grabbed his arm. "Dance with me?" Jin couldn't contain his smile and nodded.
After the song Jin went for water, leaving Lee alone. She looked around and saw a dark figure out of the corner of her eye. She froze and looked harder. The figure turned around and she couldn't believe it at first. How could Henry be there when she knew he was locked up.
Henry began to walk towards her so she ran. Lee looked behind her and saw Henry was still following. She got to the entrance and told the guards there was a man following her. She went outside and ran at full speed.
There was some commotion at the door and she thought she heard Jin. Lee turned but only saw Henry behind her. She bolted. Everywhere she looked he was there. She bumped into someone. She looked up to apologize and saw Henry. She saw an alley way and ran for it. The Henry she ran into walked towards her. "Ma'am. Are you okay?"
"No, no! Stay away from me!" She backed to a wall and fell down. She pulled her knees to her chest and cried. "Go away. Just leave me alone."
"Lee. Can I come to you?"
Lee recognized the voice and looked up. In a sea of Henry's and tears, she saw Jin. She held out her hand. "I want to go home." He nodded and grabbed her hand. "I'm sorry." Jin helped her up and pulled her into a hug.
"Don't be. I got you. Always will. You're safe." Jin held her close as she cried. He asked someone to call them a cab. It pulled up and took them home.
Once home, Lee went to her room to clean up. When she came out, Jin had some tea on the counter for her and a note.
'Running to the drug store. I'll be soon.'
Lee grabbed the tea and went to the living room. She was half way through tea and a show when Jin returned. She sat up and smiled.
Jin gave a sad smile and went to the kitchen. "How do you feel?" he asked, his back to her.
"I'm okay. Just sleepy. Thanks for the tea. It really helped with my nerves." Lee walked to the kitchen to clean out her cup. Jin quickly took the cup and poured another cup.
"This should help you sleep."
Lee took a big drink of the tea. "Thanks. I'm going to go to sleep." She began to walk away then ran back to him and hugged him. She didn't know if she over stepped a boundary or not but she just needed a hug. Jin's arms wrapped around her and didn't let go until she did. For the first time in months she slept without waking up and for over 10 hours.

I knew I shouldn't have hugged her back for as long as I did, but I knew she needed the comfort. And let's be honest. I wanted nothing more than to hold her from there up to when she woke the next day. I want nothing more then to protect her and be by her side always.
But I can't get attached. Every day, it seems to get harder to not do that though. Even though she's been struggling, I seem to like her more and more.
The next morning at breakfast, I had to tell her harsh information. Even though she'd be up set, it had to be done.
She didn't wake until noon so I made brunch and tea for her nerves. She was groggy from the sleeping medicine I made. "Afternoon. Sleep well?" I asked.
She nodded and sat down. I couldn't help but stare at her. She was so cute in the mornings. Messy hair, baggy clothes and an adorable morning voice. " I have to do something today, but I need help with it."
"I'll help. What is it?" I think I seemed eager but she was asking for help. How could I resist?
"I need to find a counselor and make an appointment. Will help me do that?" She looked at me with her sad eyes. There's no way to resist. She keeps me trapped in a spell.
"I'll do what I can to help you. We will get you through this." I smiled and began to eat.

That's all for now my loves. Sorry for the huge delay. Life has not been easy. I'll post as soon as I can.
