"Are you sure Sam will like it if you get her a gift?" I asked as I looked at G-Dragon.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrPZhkbMFKo
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVTsY3aTMtH
I raised an eyebrow. "She hasn't?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgJaRxpN21C
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt9NPSCcg0K
I groaned as I stared up at the ceiling of the car. Sam could be really difficult sometimes.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNUDdeHC2xv
"I thought she meant it when she told me she forgave you," I said.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdlcqmhgiRZ
"She really didn't. She gave me one weird explanation and I knew she didn't mean it."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡExnprHZzsN
I sulked. "Sam is one big fat liar."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlDWQz5urFs
"A 'pretty' big fat liar," G-Dragon emphasised. "You got to admit, she's really good at it."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡabC8j6Lm3L
"One of her many talents." I smiled at him but it soon fell away.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDhvDQUjeT2
"So, what can I get her?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5p9zOV1IGf
"I don't think getting her a gift will be enough for her to forgive you."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFrF0sO47PX
"What do you mean? I thought ladies love gifts."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2yoxdnb2Cf
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.'"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzfhTSGb8lm
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjnE9PmY1jS
"Oh, you're serious," G-Dragon blushed as he fixed his eyes back on the road.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRjRw3Z0twv
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2FUkcd7uLL
"So what do you think I should get her?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡALb74XfrKW
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9H8xyhlO85
"Don't you think you should've told me that earlier?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtGTUJBK1XK
"I thought we were going shopping together, not getting Sam a gift."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy2St0gMSc5
I could see him roll his eyes. "Sorry. I thought you got the catch that we were going for Sam's sake."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzWVhuGDB4l
"Sam's sake or yours?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡegtEH6choI
G-Dragon raised the corner of his lip into a smile. "Fine, my sake."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfM21aB9UMv
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwCJCuZwJKz
G-Dragon groaned. "Why is Sam so difficult? I mean, she may seem ordinary, but she's different."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqEBxlYX1IR
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoYZ0ZNr2Yg
"Are you making fun of me?" G-Dragon didn't turn to look at me when he asked.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzl2Q9nKnXi
"Maybe." I folded my arms with a smile and went on to look in front of me.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoXamBfUqhm
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2ooTSGwSMk
As we got out of his car and looked over at the Myeong-dong shopping centre across the road, he asked:
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzvlDIzkhSQ
"Have you thought of what we can buy for her?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFuW2nA7QI8
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLpoEGlxqZv
"I thought you already figured it out."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡciyqMdrpH6
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGAXhzJaULa
"You're her best friend."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtwKRRQFido
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCCvo2hM3yq
"You think I don't know that?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5HMyXt2DBA
"Of course you do," I said sarcastically. "And I think I know just what to get her."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu6Gf5r8HZj
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz5hxDIMAKY
"Do you have any antique shop around here?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcjkStELjYj
G-Dragon and I soon went up the escalator. And he gave me a surprised look.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdTLYgBDHTX
"Why would you want to go to an antique shop?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡm6XZNtlIZ4
"If you want the perfect gift for Sam then an antique shop is the best place to start looking."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ18snjfCXEe
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh3lFkoszDA
"Are you sure we'll find a perfect gift for her there?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbGhP4sdeJu
"We've to try," I answered as I shrugged my shoulders. "Sam really likes things that are old, beautiful and has a special meaning."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoBtjLaRnZq
"You think so?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡel9I3Ki9k3
"I know so. Now, can we go? Because you and I are capturing a lot of attention at the moment."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzT0M7sDyr8
G-Dragon and I looked around and we noticed people looking our way. Some even had their phones out to take pictures.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIqseTEWSUu
"Come on, I know just the place," he said as he started to walk away and I followed.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4BW2apM7Yk
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXyUNWnQK4J
"GD, look," I said as I held his arm and dragging him back, still looking at the mannequin on display.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9P1VNGPCZL
"What is it?" he asked.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO0paHGua4F
"Have you seen that outfit?" I pointed at the display window.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg3hUfOj9VQ
"Don't tell me you plan on buying that for Sam?" G-Dragon looked at me with an eyebrow raised.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbNZYmrnj0Q
"No, it's for me, silly. Come on."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtNRt25LvlM
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjNQXUKmSfD
"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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDZW78I6jJT
"Well, we did say we were coming here to shop, didn't we?" I asked as I gave him a smile.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYXXvxCJuKS
"Okay, can we go now?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡinlhXBtnPU
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBdRpIdA8WO
"Whatever," G-Dragon muttered to himself as he led the way and I happily followed behind him.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡocMe2KtY1Z
We were soon approaching the antique store when something else again caught my eye.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7ddWVyjFAS
A few stores before the antique one was a store that had something behind the display window that made my mouth drop.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRZhxMu8Yw7
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmJIFIyHdY7
"Zoey?" came G-Dragon's voice as he waved his hand close to my face.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1NXZwuHpgq
"Huh?" I turned to look at him.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDTbWrq4KsV
"Don't tell me you are fangirling over EXO?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN60dPMWV6N
"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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz01Di3P2vR
"Zoey, focus!" He snapped his fingers in front of my face. "We came here for something, not EXO."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg0sXL9FWmu
"Okay, but, I want to go to their concert," I said as I looked at G-Dragon with a whining tune in my voice.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLDHGXrwsqt
He shrugged his shoulders and it could clearly show on his face that he was really annoyed. "So?" he asked.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjsjanNTwHh
"Is it possible for me to get a ticket?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDMmFO1QUiX
"Have you clearly forgotten what we came here for?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFl5Z3zAXEK
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?
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLrO1OZMVcu
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQqCfQvb6N7
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2NzvgU8Pxa
"You're daydreaming," he said.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5QEwPxk2fs
"No, I wasn't." I blushed as I shook my head.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdPS4PkxAXQ
"You're dreamy eyed and lost in the clouds. You're thinking of EXO, aren't you?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVd7XXdSw0J
"No." I lied again.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2uKfvsY09t
"Really? Then why are we here?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYw4dGKrEFg
"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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ68VnnMRLtF
"We came here to find Sam a gift," I said proudly, snapping my fingers.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDmt9CoanFM
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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkTSIWZwQln
I felt my eyes could pop out of their sockets any moment. "For real?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvNJOB0YL1Z
"I asked you the same question two times and you took four minutes to answer."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDlWP1uy2YO
"Oh." I felt really embarrassed as I scratched my head. "Looks like I was clearly daydreaming."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmDon7T11cU
"Can we think about this later and go get Sam a gift first?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiXTT2LUd5a
"Oh, okay," I said with a sigh as I looked at the cardboard images. "There will be time for that next time."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1khz3pBASn
I noticed the words below the cardboard images which said, "We Are One. We Are EXO." I ended up smiling to myself.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVPci8fjpQh
"Come on, let's go," said G-Dragon as he started off.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡou03vyaOd4
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxwqJHieY15
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdLPyB0haxG
"Are you sure we can find something in here?" G-Dragon asked when I stood right beside him.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZzuBvUqArj
"We've to go inside to check, don't we?" I suggested.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfhM0chXlrU
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3nayik7nIZ
"I noticed that you have been looking at me for a while," said the guy still looking at the display window.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRKUxFaoQzo
"Huh?" I was a little confused. "But I just started staring at you now."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0Kl33bWk7K
He turned to look at me and removed his shades. My jaw suddenly dropped.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3h8bNiUvCS
"I noticed you were looking at the EXO cardboard images," said Chanyeol with a gorgeous smile. "Thats what I meant."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHgJVmqIke1
"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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHKt7jf6BYN
"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."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeHIfB14yXB
"You....me.....I.....you're....you're....," I gulped as I pointed a finger at him.
My eyes bulged. "EXO."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzOozwNfARL
"Ya, and you're Zoey from The Toxins."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqcYLvueXTi
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPnUCTmF8Sk
"Oh, no," said G-Dragon behind me. "This cannot be happening."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTdqfzQ2D1e
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3LW5jT3DOB
"Zoey?" G-Dragon called out to me though it felt like his voice was a million miles away.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBya70s9Zgz
"Mmmm." I muttered with a smile as I tilted my head to the side, still staring at Chanyeol.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJHpIBQG6oQ
"I think we better start going. Don't you think?"
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4XgqhFNRT0
"No." I giggled as I looked at G-Dragon.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4UNiW5U3u3
"This is ridiculous," he muttered.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJcyF7wvPT2
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0VQ8PCdPmY
"Chan!" Kai called out to Chanyeol as he came towards us. Chanyeol turned to look behind him.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡywRJ754aYm
"Kai?" I went around Chanyeol and started to approach Kai.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVPZhbYTtPS
Kai stopped upon seeing me and he looked totally surprised, just as I was with seeing him.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJuFyWU5kcY
"Oh, it really is you," said Kai.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYO4GGIWeyN
"I told you it was Zoey," said Chanyeol.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr3zfO2hwgF
"Wow," I said as my eyes never left Kai's face. "You're even way hotter in person."
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGsmZGLnJH7
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAOPZ0aWw8H
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcQ0NIqWGJL
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.
448Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsY53zgka5R
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.ns220.127.116.11da2
