(AN: Pooooo XD You all love me, admit it n.n You cannot tell me I suck. Because you all know I don't...And because you all love me sooooo...UPDATE O.O)

Riddick sighed, he knew she was gonna ask sooner or later. But just because he knew that, didn't mean he had to actually answer her. "None of your business Jack."

"Don't play that with me!" Jack's face contorted in annoyance.

"I can play whatever I want with you, Jack, and you can't do anything about it."

"How much do you want to bet Riddick? And what makes you think that, hmmm? I won't sit around and take your shit! I came with you, because I know I can handle myself, not because I need YOU to protect me!"

"Why do I think that Jack?" In one fluid movement, it seemed, he was out of his seat, having her pinned to the wall holding both her thin wrists above her head with one of his massive hands. His muscles rippled as he held her still, "Because, Jack, I'm bigger than you. I'm stronger than you. And you're forgetting a big thing."

Jack's eyes widened. Dammit! How did he do that? Seem to move as if he were part of the air. She struggled for all she was worth, but her small body was nothing to his. If he wanted to keep her there, she'd be there for a long time. "What's that, Riddick?" She glared up into his silvery eyes.

"You are on my ship. You're playing in my territory..." he slid a finger of free hand to trace her lips, trailing down her chin, neck, and chest, stopping at the neckline of her shirt, "And you wouldn't want to get tangled up in some dirty business..." He leaned foreward, his full, teasing lips right beside her ear.

Jack shivered as his finger barely touched her skin, sending sensations of fear and anxiety up and down her spine. She could feel his breath on her ear and neck, and couldn't help but give a desperate little moan. She shut her eyes tight, trying to regain herself. He was threatening her, she couldn't go silly in the head right now!

"Would you?" He whispered huskily in her ear. He enjoyed it. He could smell the heat and tension rising from her body, her sweat...that musk...that forgotten musk. It had been so long since he'd seen a woman, let alone get close enough to smell her fear. And to be honest, this game he was playing with her right now excited the hell out of him.

He looked at her, she had her eyes shut. Perfect. He had her cornered.

But then, something he didn't expect happened... She snorted in amusement, and smirked, opening her eyes.

"Riddick, tell me, Does that game work with other girls?" She looked up at him, a sly smirk spread across her face.

Damn she was good. It took everything he had to keep from laughing at her cockiness. "You think I'm playing, Jack?"

"I don't think. I know. I know you better than you know yourself."

"Is that so?"

"It is."

"Well, you really have grown up so much. Pity I wasn't there to see you grow. But Imam made it cl-"

"Clear he'd have your ass on a silver platter if you came near me?"

"You got it." He let go of her wrists, leaning over and setting the ship on auto pilot "How long you think 'til Imam gets them mercs on my ass?"

"I'd give us...24 hours before they come after us. If we get far enough away, they'll never find us."

"Don't say never, things can happen. I've been found before."

"It's because you are ooollld Riddick. Losing your touch." she smirked.

"You watch your mouth, Jack, I don't care if you are a woman, I'll still kick your ass." He walked down the hall, shadows covering his tall, muscular body.

"I'm not scared of you." Jack sounded so sure, but inside her stomach crawled at the thought of him angry with her. Riddick wasn't one to mess with.

"Hah!" he laughed, "Don't lie Jack, I can taste the falsehood in your voice."

"I mean it Riddick. I know all your tricks. I can figure out what you're thinking right now. You're thinking of how smart I am, how sly I can be. How much work we could have gotten done together if I went with you. You may think you know everything about everyone, But you don't Riddick. And inside, I can tell your insecurities!" she yelled after him. "I know you have a weakspot, your eyes against light are powerful compared to this weakness...You don't know what it's like to feel l-"

"STOP IT JACK. RIGHT FUCKING NOW!" He slammed his fist into the wall, and looked over his shoulder, his silver eyes glowing in the dark, eyebrows furrowed in anger, "Don't you dare say it Jack...don't you dare..."

Her eyes widened and she jumped...she didn't mean to let herself get carried away with her words like that! "Riddick I-" but she stopped "Don't you cry for Johns...Don't you dare..." She was now seeing everything through the eyes of a child all over again. She could feel his breath against her neck and shaved head as he said that. Her lip quivered and her eyes watered. She wasn't sad for Johns! She was upset because he had just actually killed someone she had seen a little under 3 minutes ago....

She clenched her eyes shut, and opened them, back to the scene infront of her. She didn't know why she always slipped back into the past at the smallest memory jogs, but it annoyed her sometimes. "Riddick I'm sorry I didn't--"

He cut her off, "Whatever Jack, kitchen is to the right down 4 doors, if you're hungry, get something to eat. Feel free to go to sleep whenever you feel like it." He looked infront of him again, continuing to walk away from her.

"Dammit..." She whispered as he went into a room at the end of the dark hall. She slumped against a wall and slowly slid down, till she was in a sitting posistion, knees pulled up and tucked under her chin, holding her arms around her. She shut her eyes. She was so stupid. She wanted to impress him, and yet she suceeded only in depressing herself, and making him think foolish of her. "Dammit....Dammit all to the darkness..."
