"Rose? You're staring?"

Rose was in the practice room watching Minho dance. It was late at night, but Chan was still working, so she was still at work too.

"Huh? Sorry."

"It's late. Why don't you go home?"

"Why don't you?"

Minho sighed and crossed his arms after turning off the music.

"I'm going over the new choreo for the Japan concerts."

"Well, it looks awesome. I love watching you dance."

He stared at her with wide eyes.

"What?"

"Um, ha, I must be more tired than I thought. I'm going to go before..."

She moved to get up but before she could leave the room Minho's voice stopped her.

"Do you dance?"

"Do I or can I? I can't I'm afraid."

"I don't believe that."

"No, it's true. It's like I have no control over my body. I wish I could though, it's always fascinated me."

The dancer walked over to her so that they were only an arm's width away from each other. His penetrating stare still made Rose nervous around him.

"Maybe I could show you a few things."

"I wouldn't want to waste your time."

"You wouldn't be."

"I know how busy you are. I handle your schedule."

"We're free now, aren't we? You can always make time for things."

"I don't think I'm up to dancing tonight."

"No, not tonight. Go on. You're going to see Chan, aren't you?"

"What? How'd you know?"

Minho raised an eyebrow.

"That you don't go home until he does? Was it a secret? If it was, you didn't do a very good job of hiding it."

"He forgets to eat when he's working."

"I know. I'm glad he has you to look after him."

"Well, it is my job..."

"I didn't know being a soulmate was a job. Anyway, you've had an impact on him. He's been coming home earlier recently. Perhaps that wasn't for his benefit."

"What do you mean?"

"You should go. He looked exhausted in his V Live earlier."

"I noticed. Hopefully, he won't get angry at me for telling him to go to bed. Poor STAYs."

"Good night, Rose."

"Night, Minho. Don't stay up too late, okay?"

The dancer had already turned the music back on before Rose left the room.

When she reached Chan's studio, she found her soulmate just the way he was when he ended his V Live. Barefaced and wearing a cap, Chan was sitting at his desk working. He was rubbing his eyes when she came in.

"Hey, Baby."

"Hey, handsome."

"Are you teasing me?"

"What? Why would you think that?"

"I know you watch my V Lives."

"I do, and I spent this one thinking how handsome you look today."
