She saw him making progress, but she did eye him with concern and kept watch for any possibilities he would stumble. There was quite the internal debate going on in her mind as she watched him, on whether or not she should let him and work it out on his own, as often seemed to be his way of dealing with difficult situations... or to just help him, despite his protests.

He will fall, or strain his leg too much, and then will be stuck in bed even longer.

"Mattaku," Utsu sighed softly and moved up beside him, placing an arm around him for support. While her willowy frame couldn't offer much strength for him to lean against, she did have the advantage of being on the taller side, putting her at a good height for slipping her shoulder underneath his arm. "... And you don't owe me anything for this, Sanjuro. We're family. Family look after one another."

"Some kind of, sure." He grumbled to hide that her closeness sent shivers across him. After another step fighting two weaknesses of his at once proved too much. From her embrace, he flopped back on the bed.

[ooc. Leaving the call on potential shenanigans to you.]

That she was the cause of his struggle was not something she picked up on, thinking that the shivering was more likely caused by his current state.

"Maybe not like all other families, but family st---" Utsu stopped mid-sentence as his fall caught her by surprise, and his much heavier frame pulled her along, causing her to fall halfway ontop of him.

"Oof..." she caught her breath, unsteadily feeling for something to lean against to push herself up from the akward position. "... Are you alright?"

That something was probably his chest or shoulders. For him the immediate reaction was to help her stand quickly to obfuscate the nature of the accident, but when his hands rested around her waist and a realisation about their mutual position entered his mind, he wanted nothing more than to keep her close. Angry at himself for his moment of hesitation, he couldn't keep this struggle fully within, looking at her with conflicted gaze as he nodded. "You?"

She met his gaze, noting the turmoil of feelings within him. The words caught in her throat as she felt her heartbeat quicken its pace briefly over their sudden closeness, so all she managed at first was to nod.

There was a quiet conflict in her eyes too until she managed to look somewhere else, but she found it hard to move with his hands on her waist.

"Maybe you should take it easy a little bit longer before you try to walk... the leg is still painful?" Utsusemi cast a vague glance in the direction of the likely culprit. "... I could do something for the pain, but you shouldn't stress it too much."

"Mhm. I'll stay in bed then. I don't want you to... be embarrassed with me. Gomen." Noticing the problem being in his grip, he loosened it with a gentle steadying yet secure push, immediately followed by a stride of his touch up her back to her shoulders, with the intent to do the same. As he thought it could help her stand up, he leaned forth a little...

"Embarrased with you? Hardly."

Sensing the shift of his hands and his loosened grip, Utsu turned her head back to face him as she needed to orient herself somewhat. Though she hadn't expected him to change his position...

... it was only briefly that her nose brushed against his cheek as she turned her head, her lips barely inches from his.

Upon realising the situation, she quickly tried to distance herself, nearly falling over backwards from the sudden movement...

For a moment, he felt as if the near-kiss was intentional or at least an impulse coming from within her, and his own nose moved to brush back, but when she rapidly bent back that momentary glimpse into poorly timed would-have-beens seemed to be taken away. But then, his martial two-hands reflexes took the better of him. He predicted more than saw her risk of falling over and hurting herself against the table edge, he scooped her up caringly into his embrace.

She was certain Sanjuro could feel her quickened heartbeat as he pulled her close in his embrace, and she silently remained in his arms for a few good moments, flustered but also grateful.

"... Seems we're both a little clumsy today," Utsu managed to murmur, having found her breath again to speak. She made no move to remove herself from his hold yet, even as she was doing her best to remain calm in the situation. "Guess you should rest up a bit more, and I can ask Cook to help you off the ship if need be, as I think the captain was going to take the ship out of port for some exploration of the island."

He was a bit unsure how to proceed; confusion and doubt opposing fool's anticipation. One one hand, he loosened his grip so she could slip into an independent position beside him whenever she wished; on the other, he sought her gaze to know more, to check if there were vestiges of what he wanted to see in them. He idly took a strand of her hair off her forehead as she spoke as if it was the most natural thing in the world to do. To all his senses her closeness didn't feel wrong; he could feel neither embarrassment nor shame.

"Mhm. I'll manage in moving out. I'll improvise crutches if need be."

With the loosened hold, she moved with a slow grace beside him to avoid further near-falls or accidents. Her gaze remained lowered, allowing her feelings to be unreadable, but as his fingers brushed against her forehead Utsusemi looked up. Conflicting emotions of uncertainity, concern, care, and sadness were like small glimmers in her eyes, just like the flecks of blue in her hazel orbs.

She nodded gently.

"... I should probably go. It would be quite shameful to be late for the meeting with the Imperial prince." While it was not a lie as such, in truth she was also worried if someone would see them, and a part of her felt as if her feelings for Sanjuro were a betrayal against Kenzo and the bond they had made.

"It would." He agreed with a nod, looking to his knees where he placed his hands. "Better hurry."

Her lips pressed together as she nodded. As a last show of affection, she placed a hand over his, giving it a gentle squeeze.

"Feel free to come by whenever you want. I will ask Muhaki-san where we might find copies of the books you lost." Utsu offered him and encouraging smile; items like that could always be replaced.

At least this time she didn't trip or stumble as she got on her feet.

He looked up at her with a half-hopeful, half-resigned smile, representative of the ambiguous track his life took, some fine line he had to learn to trail. His fingers subconsciously went to where her hand had just been, tracing the waning warmth.

"Stay safe, alright?"

"I will," her smile returned to the brighter and warmer smile she had had earlier when he woke, "and you too, Sanjuro."

Bidding him a last goodbye for now, Utsusemi departed. She had to be presentable for a meeting with the highest authorities of this expedition.
