"Are you sure Sam will like it if you get her a gift?" I asked as I looked at G-Dragon.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeIKXWRGV2K
"Of course she will," he answered with a smile on his face, his eyes fixed on the road as he drove. "You know, she hasn't fully forgiven me yet."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzKXdMt45sB
I raised an eyebrow. "She hasn't?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkDSt6WGAJD
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu6SEN6NAyM
I groaned as I stared up at the ceiling of the car. Sam could be really difficult sometimes.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdCqe1Jozqe
"I thought she meant it when she told me she forgave you," I said.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUEKVsuKebq
"She really didn't. She gave me one weird explanation and I knew she didn't mean it."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFT0bOoOud3
I sulked. "Sam is one big fat liar."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL8nim5xZ1r
"A 'pretty' big fat liar," G-Dragon emphasised. "You got to admit, she's really good at it."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdOChahsNfL
"One of her many talents." I smiled at him but it soon fell away.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeN2H0Pe5rB
"So, what can I get her?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSMzOslwM5G
"I don't think getting her a gift will be enough for her to forgive you."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡViQwsRZILG
"What do you mean? I thought ladies love gifts."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0Q1KxgXOcj
I shrugged my shoulders. "You're right on that part. But one thing you should know about Sam is that she's different. She's practically those girls people refer to as a 'rare species.'"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkgiYS6JTNM
G-Dragon burst out laughing and when he turned to look at me, he stopped. I wasn't laughing and I definitely wasn't joking.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5udlVFOEuX
"Oh, you're serious," G-Dragon blushed as he fixed his eyes back on the road.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡItfZEgaWBg
"When I mean that, I mean she's special," I said with a smile. "Someone like her needs something extraordinary. So if you're buying her a gift, then it should be something that will mean something to her forever. Almost like that pendant."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMbXhlbWTJ8
"So what do you think I should get her?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJQx2TY3Wki
"Mmmm, I don't know," I said as I thought for a bit. "That's why I think instead of buying her something, you should do something for her instead."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmvdxBliSq9
"Don't you think you should've told me that earlier?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaASMbqunc9
"I thought we were going shopping together, not getting Sam a gift."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRS3MWLwf7Z
I could see him roll his eyes. "Sorry. I thought you got the catch that we were going for Sam's sake."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1iYoouCGke
"Sam's sake or yours?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡruukSIwWIU
G-Dragon raised the corner of his lip into a smile. "Fine, my sake."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN2dkEJ5g9J
"Don't worry. You brought the right person for this. We'll find Sam something and she will totally forgive you. But just in case she doesn't, you better do something memorable for her."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjGkinVmUrl
G-Dragon groaned. "Why is Sam so difficult? I mean, she may seem ordinary, but she's different."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDdiMtZgyey
"That's why she's special," I smirked. "She can make any guy break into a sweat just to impress her and she doesn't have to lift a finger. Just like you."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1AgGSbdNDw
"Are you making fun of me?" G-Dragon didn't turn to look at me when he asked.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOtl5Pq3T3a
"Maybe." I folded my arms with a smile and went on to look in front of me.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBGikX7T5HR
We soon found ourselves at Myeong-dong. I remember coming to this place for the first time after landing here in Korea. I think this was the best place to start looking for the perfect gift. I had to think of something real quick or else G-Dragon might just lose it. Though he did seem calm on the face, in the inside, I could tell he was losing it.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCFFiQTNoIf
As we got out of his car and looked over at the Myeong-dong shopping centre across the road, he asked:
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKwN7ySwoYW
"Have you thought of what we can buy for her?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0ZFL2f0LNE
The two of us quickly crossed the road when it was clear. We were clearly jaywalking even when there were no cars around. We got to the other side safely. "Not yet," I answered.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLkD0hyk5hO
"I thought you already figured it out."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlLTsjpTUSI
"Well, sorry. I'm not actually sidekick to know what Sam wants," I complained as the two of us walked towards the multi-storey building. "Trust me, even buying her a birthday gift is hard on my part."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8hGcQMdJxP
"You're her best friend."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAUnDBYB6BH
"Ya, but that doesn't mean she tells me what she wants like any other best friend would do." We soon walked through the wide open doors of the building finding ourselves in the lobby. "Sam isn't an open book where you can see everything. She's one where you've to read in between the lines to fully understand her."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWQTkwjk2Ui
"You think I don't know that?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPvwBxc4nE5
"Of course you do," I said sarcastically. "And I think I know just what to get her."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxRYVukpyfR
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEhc3mez2Cb
"Do you have any antique shop around here?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKKjCc8EoNc
G-Dragon and I soon went up the escalator. And he gave me a surprised look.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9EwmMb79fl
"Why would you want to go to an antique shop?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbSZZ5o9n3U
"If you want the perfect gift for Sam then an antique shop is the best place to start looking."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGV4iXZEzCw
G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me and I didn't say a word till we got to the top. We looked at each other as we got off the escalator and I could tell G-Dragon was contemplating over what I had just said.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLZ8jXcSofu
"Are you sure we'll find a perfect gift for her there?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4PRFi2wF9L
"We've to try," I answered as I shrugged my shoulders. "Sam really likes things that are old, beautiful and has a special meaning."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXFwPodHjrE
"You think so?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA84bxvyjuW
"I know so. Now, can we go? Because you and I are capturing a lot of attention at the moment."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ53p1W5asIk
G-Dragon and I looked around and we noticed people looking our way. Some even had their phones out to take pictures.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhAWl5skQfc
"Come on, I know just the place," he said as he started to walk away and I followed.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUx9KB0fkaa
As we passed by some stores, I couldn't help but look at things on display. As we were passing the Gucci store, I saw a fancy looking outfit on a mannequin. The mannequin wore a fancy black leather jacket, a fancy black vest, a tight black and gold stripe fitting skirt with black fancy high heeled shoes. The mannequin even held a black and gold fancy Gucci handbag. The gold metal Gucci logo on the bag gleamed brightly under the lights. I couldn't stop looking at the outfit. I was in love.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGLEpVxVEuk
"GD, look," I said as I held his arm and dragging him back, still looking at the mannequin on display.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFVTWAhIPAE
"What is it?" he asked.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡecKgacfQGF
"Have you seen that outfit?" I pointed at the display window.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJMy1JBZ7Uf
"Don't tell me you plan on buying that for Sam?" G-Dragon looked at me with an eyebrow raised.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlA7tRKrokK
"No, it's for me, silly. Come on."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEUiA85l8tr
I dragged him with me to the Gucci store and fifteen minutes later, I was walking out with a smile on my face and two shopping bags with the outfit in one and the Gucci handbag in another.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡveEIId1qnT
"For a moment, I thought you were helping me out with buying Sam a gift, not getting one yourself," said G-Dragon as he followed behind me.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ83gGnBlfzB
"Well, we did say we were coming here to shop, didn't we?" I asked as I gave him a smile.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpPeN1lXVCv
"Okay, can we go now?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM0kJG62BeY
"Sure. Lead the way. Aww, I can't wait to show the girls what I just bought." I giggled as I looked in the shopping bag. "They would be so jealous."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp826XEALPN
"Whatever," G-Dragon muttered to himself as he led the way and I happily followed behind him.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnAJg3cY6Qe
We were soon approaching the antique store when something else again caught my eye.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLHdtF2orKJ
A few stores before the antique one was a store that had something behind the display window that made my mouth drop.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiuXPbELxjW
There were cardboard images of EXO. "The EXO." All nine of them. I couldn't help but look at each one of their faces. They looked so cool and so cute for cardboard images. Sometimes being a fangirl can be one heck of a serious problem because I couldn't take my eyes off of them.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOL76vafaa9
"Zoey?" came G-Dragon's voice as he waved his hand close to my face.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTxvnPnHjQP
"Huh?" I turned to look at him.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiWxi41Xm0M
"Don't tell me you are fangirling over EXO?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx3EguFG3Ca
"Is that a crime?" I asked, with a smile. I bet it was a stupid one. But I didn't care as I went back to looking at the cardboard images. "Looks like they will be having a concert soon." I went to looking at the cardboard announcement right next to the EXO images. It was written in Korean but there was a translation right after it.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmkdC6jk8bg
"Zoey, focus!" He snapped his fingers in front of my face. "We came here for something, not EXO."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9XNpvwnqKz
"Okay, but, I want to go to their concert," I said as I looked at G-Dragon with a whining tune in my voice.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv9oPAGA2aS
He shrugged his shoulders and it could clearly show on his face that he was really annoyed. "So?" he asked.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHPzH3LtIQi
"Is it possible for me to get a ticket?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqILKc2rYgG
"Have you clearly forgotten what we came here for?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡahr85Rkrv6
I looked at him as I tried to remember but my mind was completely filled with images of EXO. That was strange. What were we here for again?
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1CrJGDKxQT
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡllKy01N28q
I almost jumped in the air with fright and almost dropping the bags in my hands. I realised I was still right where I stood facing G-Dragon. He folded his arms.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCjbpF9Z88T
"You're daydreaming," he said.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAtvKGU0wmS
"No, I wasn't." I blushed as I shook my head.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbk4msiP9RG
"You're dreamy eyed and lost in the clouds. You're thinking of EXO, aren't you?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvN9kd6DzxU
"No." I lied again.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuazfeDswaK
"Really? Then why are we here?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGWxbglC0DK
"Ummmm." I scratched my head, closed my eyes and started to stump my foot hard on the floor. People would have thought of me as a human with a dog attitude. I stopped what I was doing as my eyes flew open.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgQfLCc6hf0
"We came here to find Sam a gift," I said proudly, snapping my fingers.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ86uhhjekO8
G-Dragon looked at me and he looked at his cool fancy Daniel Klein wristwatch saying, "you just took four minutes to answer that question."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX6dB7pEw6f
I felt my eyes could pop out of their sockets any moment. "For real?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjhyhCBSc57
"I asked you the same question two times and you took four minutes to answer."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLv5Y7M9cYC
"Oh." I felt really embarrassed as I scratched my head. "Looks like I was clearly daydreaming."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSm4Gbf5yaG
"Can we think about this later and go get Sam a gift first?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBL1T7wSCWI
"Oh, okay," I said with a sigh as I looked at the cardboard images. "There will be time for that next time."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe9DAszG9Z5
I noticed the words below the cardboard images which said, "We Are One. We Are EXO." I ended up smiling to myself.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb6eHcjq1e5
"Come on, let's go," said G-Dragon as he started off.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW7VFY2KfrU
I was about to follow G-Dragon when I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. I noticed a reflection of someone on the display window where the EXO cardboard images stood. I stopped and looked at the window, but I didn't see anyone unusual. All I saw were people's reflection walking behind me and they all looked to be minding their own business.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXrdIKJYpRH
I shrugged my shoulders brushing off what I might have seen and I quickly caught up with G-Dragon who was already at the antique shop and staring at things on display.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6YVjv1kjza
"Are you sure we can find something in here?" G-Dragon asked when I stood right beside him.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiRQ4pskBUu
"We've to go inside to check, don't we?" I suggested.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuN8L8aTZZ4
As I turned to start heading into the store, I hadn't noticed that someone was standing right beside me, also looking at the items through the display window. He had a pair of expensive shades on and for some reason, I couldn't help but look at him. Must be his hair that was dyed in a striking red colour.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY2Vpukf0ze
"I noticed that you have been looking at me for a while," said the guy still looking at the display window.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWEVODnVOKc
"Huh?" I was a little confused. "But I just started staring at you now."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBwIcBG85zR
He turned to look at me and removed his shades. My jaw suddenly dropped.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9hi1HsMoYs
"I noticed you were looking at the EXO cardboard images," said Chanyeol with a gorgeous smile. "Thats what I meant."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWIRdale6Wb
"I...I....I," I stammered as I tried to say something straight. But I couldn't. I felt like I was going to have a heart attack.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgTwl4un5wf
"You're Zoey, right?" he asked. "I was pretty sure it was you but I had to be close to look at you and confirm it."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkBIZCaEpmP
"You....me.....I.....you're....you're....," I gulped as I pointed a finger at him.
My eyes bulged. "EXO."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0oShBVgxPO
"Ya, and you're Zoey from The Toxins."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQkDVv7dZ3K
I felt like I was going to faint. This felt so surreal. Chanyeol was standing right in front of me. And he knew who I was. He knew ME! I wanted to scream and shout like I usually do whenever I see my favourite celebrities. But this time I couldn't and I didn't know why.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPmQvXkVEoo
"Oh, no," said G-Dragon behind me. "This cannot be happening."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjg2FHbWjDO
Chanyeol waved happily at G-Dragon and I continued to look on at his handsome face. I felt like I was floating in the clouds looking at him.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6jdaorEAnN
"Zoey?" G-Dragon called out to me though it felt like his voice was a million miles away.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoKAQUGC9EX
"Mmmm." I muttered with a smile as I tilted my head to the side, still staring at Chanyeol.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbxM5lAllSi
"I think we better start going. Don't you think?"
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvG2k15cHuX
"No." I giggled as I looked at G-Dragon.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF2ZDBrr0Qv
"This is ridiculous," he muttered.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQOdx2yApuA
Just as I turned to look at Chanyeol, I noticed someone coming behind him. When I tilted my head a little more, I almost fell to the floor when I noticed who was coming our way.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHuWDPUPtQe
"Chan!" Kai called out to Chanyeol as he came towards us. Chanyeol turned to look behind him.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwtBkAnO1Kp
"Kai?" I went around Chanyeol and started to approach Kai.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuYdp1bFgTM
Kai stopped upon seeing me and he looked totally surprised, just as I was with seeing him.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgOPaibSv14
"Oh, it really is you," said Kai.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUMg4fuJ6Eb
"I told you it was Zoey," said Chanyeol.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjqskgFJF5g
"Wow," I said as my eyes never left Kai's face. "You're even way hotter in person."
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0kqEB6O55J
Chanyeol laughed behind me and I could already imagine G-Dragon shaking his head, probably annoyed. I could clearly see Kai blushing over my comment and he was speechless.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIgasDEN37F
Just as things couldn't get any better, the rest of EXO suddenly appeared behind Kai, coming out of a store. At first, they looked left and right down the hall, obviously looking for Chanyeol and Kai. When they spotted them, their mouths dropped upon seeing me. And I, smiled at them and waved.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ3ycLlKLmC
They didn't say anything but looked at me the whole time and I looked back at them. This definitely didn't feel real. Just minutes ago, I was looking at cardboard images of them and now they were standing before me in real life. It's like the cardboard images just came to life themselves.
489Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqfBMTDSwAO
Just after the thought of that, I soon discovered my scream as I dropped the bags I was carrying and jumped, feeling like the happiest person in the world.ns 22.214.171.124da2
