"This is your apartment?" Xander asked as I moved into my room and closed the door after he entered. He sat on the bed, bouncing slightly and patted the spot next to him, smiling like an idiot. I rolled my eyes and went to my closet, opening the door, and removing my knifes, boots, holster, vest, and putting my gun in place with the others. I felt a breath on my neck and shivered again. "Nice collection you've got. Needs one more though," he stated as he placed my dagger into the drawer. I took it and moved away from him and towards my bed, I lifted the pillow and placed the dagger underneath.

"No, that one gets its own spot." I laughed lightly and sat down on my bed, my back against my many pillows. Xander smirked and sat down on the bed with me. He leaned his weight on his right hand which was on the right side of my body. So my knees were up against his chest. "Why did you follow me after I specifically told you not to?" I asked, trying to glare, but my heart sped up making him smile softly.

"Because I knew what Abraham Lent wanted." He inched closer.

"And that would be me dead." He frowned momentarily but brought a hand up to my cheek. I closed my head and leant into his hand, feeling the warmth spread through my body again at his touch.

"He's not going to get what he wants this time," he moved closer and I scoffed. "I'm serious. You are officially under police protection, Andy." My eyes widened and he leaned forward, his eyes closing, like he was leaning in for a kiss. I swiftly moved from underneath him and stood on the floor, my arms crossed over my chest, glaring at him. His face fell into the pillows, but he sat back up and looked at me confused. "What? What could possibly be the problem now?"
"Under police protection?" I all but squealed.

"Uh, yeah. You want Lent coming after you? Were the ninjas not a clue of how serious he is?!" He yelled, standing up and putting his hands on my shoulders. He started to lean in again and I side stepped him. "I'm getting sick of this, Andy."

"Stop calling me that! Just stop calling me Andy! There is only one person on this God forsaken planet that gets to call me Andy and he's dead so just stop! And on what planet do you think putting Cathetica's most wanted criminal under police protection is going to work out? I'm a known assassin. I kill, good and bad, people. I don't ever fail. I'm a wanted criminal. If I'm put under police protection, I get caught. How did you not think of that?!" He move forward again, but I just kept dodging him. He growled and jumped, pinning me to the wall. "Move," I snarled at him.

He stayed silent as he glared at me.

"I said move, you idiotic, chaotic, stupid, neurotic, egotistical, son of a-" He cut me off as his lips pressed against mine. I tried to move away from him, but he thrust his hips forward, locking me in place and pushing his groin against my stomach, making me feel what was underneath the uniform. No hiding that, I guess. He pulled back after a second with softer eyes, put was still pinning me to the wall too fiercely. He moved back a bit, but soon lifted me off the ground, making me wrap my legs around his waist. His groin pressed to mine now. "You gonna put me down anytime soon?" I asked, just above a whisper. He shook his head and I groaned, leaning my head against the wall, which he took as a sign to kiss and bite at my neck. Not that I'm exactly complaining. After a few minutes of that, I was practically putty.

He pulled away and leant his forehead on mine. "You make me angry, insane, and awe-struck all with just one look. Most of the time I want to smack your head, but other times I just want to smack this…" he drifted off, putting his hands on my bottom. I gulped and closed my eyes again. He sighed and kept his forehead on mine. "How the hell did Cathetica's Hero X start falling for Cathetica's Most Wanted?" He chuckled softly. "Maybe because you're too irresistible." It was my turn to laugh. I opened my eyes and leaned against the wall. He opened his as well and frowned.

"Me? Irresistible? Maybe you've hit your head too many times, Xander." He frowned more and leaned in, kissing me, and I didn't stop him, this time.
