The Spaniard nodded at her reply. The time didn't bother him, he had cleared his schedule for a while to lay low, so he really didn't mind when. "Lets make it seven thirty, then" he added with a smile.
When she mentioned his problem, he rubbed the stubble on his chin and sighed. "Its still an on-going thing... but it's sorting itself out day by day" he replied, deciding not to mention the little bump in the road he'd met a couple of hours earlier.

Kristen smiled and nodded, "Okay..." She listened to him and nodded, "Well if you need anything please let me know. I'd hate for something to happen to you Raul, I really would." She watched him, still knowing something was wrong but not pressing the subject.
Raul couldn't help but smile, despite his situation. To hear that she cared about him in that way was a bit of a wake up call, and it was a nice change, too. " Thank you... that means a lot. And don't worry about it." he replied sincerely. Still, he didn't want to have her involved, so it was good that she didn't follow up with any more questions.
Feeling uncomfortable sitting down, he slowly got himself up off the chair with a deep breath and walked around the table so he was standing behind her. Putting his hands on her shoulders, he gently massaged her muscles, whether they were strained from her workout of not. "Now enough about me... how are things with you?" he asked quietly.

Kristen smiled as she watched Raul, feeing her heart flutter as he got closer. When she felt his hands on her shoulders, she pulled her red hair to one side and sighed. "MMmm....." Closing her eyes, she enjoyed his hands.
"Nothing much. School starts again soon, and then i'll be busy, but right now I just have a few meetings and thats it."
Tilting her head back, she opened her eyes to look up at him and offered a soft smile...
Raul continued to let his fingers tend to her shoulders while he listened, relaxing somewhat now that he was out of the limelight. "Oh? Then I should give you as much attention as I can while I've still got you" he replied with a smirk when she mentioned having to return to her job. Raul was lucky, he didn't really have much of a job, at least not a strict one, and he was that good it was a breeze.
When she looked up at him, he paused and leaned down to kiss her lightly on the forehead. It wasn't good for his bruises, and it hurt a little, but he couldn't resist it. Returning the smile, he tried not to think about the irritating aches any more.
Raul didn't want too much attention, at least not right now. Which was a shame. He wanted to hold her, kiss her - but he didn't want to have to explain why he was hurting, he didn't think she'd want to see him again if she knew exactly what he'd done only a few hours ago... killing a man in cold blood.
Still, he smiled and swept a few of her hairs back that had fallen loose over her face. "Mhm. I remember that" he replied in a whisper, thinking back to when those words had been said, and that made his skin tingle. The Spaniard kissed her once more, this time on the lips, although it was brief. He sharply pulled away soon after, but kept on hand on her shoulder, and the other across his ribs in discomfort. As painful as it was, he was satisfied by the thought of the guy probably being put in a hole in the ground pretty soon, if he wasn't there already.
Raul paused his thoughts for a moment and turned to look at her. Letting go of his ribs he took hold of one of her hands and brought it up to his lips. "Of course... whatever you wish" he replied, placing a kiss on the topside of her hand before using it to gently bring her a few steps closer. No matter how much he wanted to keep distance or move away, he always felt the need to be close to her again. Perhaps hiding his secrets would be more frustrating than he thought.
"We could be in the coldest, rainiest, crappiest place on earth and it wouldn't bother me so long as you were by my side" he explained. At first, he had come hear to lay low, now he found himself slowly getting closer to confessing his love. He didn't like the idea of giving in to emotions, though it seemed pretty inevitable at that point.
When she kissed him, Raul returned it, and felt himself lost in the moment. He wanted to keep kissing her, pull his arms around her and lift her up, but he knew that would be a bad idea, it would likely do more damage to the wounds that lay hidden beneath his clothes. Instead, he broke the kiss a few moments later and sighed. Right now, his passion wanted nothing more than to tear off her clothes, but another part of his mind was deciding against it. Gently stroking her cheek with a hand, he stumbled over the words he wanted to say, resulting in some awkward silence. He wanted to tell her the truth, but he didn't know if she could handle it.

Kristen didnt know why he was being so distant and quite. Even in their kiss she could tell he was holding back. While they simply stared into eachother eyes, her hands moved to his shoulders and gently started to stroke down them, her hand going right over where his cuts were and squeezing...
As soon as Raul felt her hand on his shoulder, he gritted his teeth. He could have probably managed it if her touch was stationary, but when it moved directly over the cuts, he could take any more. He tore back in a wince of pain and clutched at the area she'd squeezed. Fuck! he thought, pulling his arm out of his sleeve to see the damage done. Red splotches were evident on the sleeve of his white shirt. The Spaniard didn't think of what his excuse would be, at that point he was in too much discomfort to think about it...

Kristen felt him pull away and she thought maybe she'd done something wrong. But when she saw him pull off the coat and the blood seeping through she was horrified. "Raul!" She instantly turned into the kitchen and grabbed a towel, moving to put it over the wound.
"What happened?! I need to take you to the hospital!" She was only thinking about him and how she could help him...
