Choi Young smiled down at Eun-Soo. After all this time, she could both surprise him and be so damn obvious at the same time. It was time to teach his High Doctor a lesson.
"So, explain it to me in simple words, so I can understand," he said his lips only inches away from her face. He had boxed her in against the wall and the way she was leaning backwards over the small windows sill behind her back, he knew the heavy armour must have been hindering her to no end. "Here, in this room, both of us …" his voice trailed off and smiled when he saw that Eun-Soo was licking her lips nervously.
"Well …" she started and her sword clattered noisily towards the floor when her hands came up to his shoulders. "Do I really have to spell it out?"
"Oh please, do," Young demanded softly and started nibbling on her exposed neck.
"I … I mean we … in this room … ah …" Eun-Soo couldn't take it any longer, she sought his lips, pulling and pushing at the tunic he was wearing and trying to get closer to him.
Choi Young had to suppress a grin. "What, Imja? Tell me!"
"Once I am out of this armour," Eun-Soo said and tried to push her hands inside his tunic and underneath the kimono.
"Then take it off, Imja," Young demanded and pulled her hands off him.
"Can you help me?" she asked with a small smile.
"No, and you didn't answer my question either," He shook his head and stepped back.
Eun-Soo stared at him open mouthed and tried to regain her balance.
"What?" she asked incredulously.
"As a Woodalchi soldier you have to learn how to take off your amour by yourself," he said off-handedly and threw her a look over her shoulder. "Someone who has the skills to waltz into the sleeping quarters of the Woodalchi daesang will not fail at this simple task, right?"
And with that he sauntered out of the room, leaving a seething Eun-Soo behind. As soon as he had closed the double doors to his quarters behind him, Choi Young leant against the door and exhaled a long breath. She would be the death of him, he thought. That or he had to find a monk to marry them by night fall because he knew he would not stand a chance.
