"I couldn't say no," I said as I shrugged my shoulders. "Now that I think about it, this is a bad idea."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWn8SnpBFM4
"You were supposed to know that even before you agreed."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCTqzZoSPsZ
"What do you think? I said no to RM but everyone else started to plead and I couldn't say no."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFR9ORdwaQP
"Well, this is going to be great. It's just like that time when BigBang challenged us in that bowling game."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCwouGC80Ev
I rubbed my neck as I thought of what might happen. There was no turning back now. And I regretted ever accepting to all of this in the first place.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFUexUo0kLd
Mike and I were standing by the doll claw machines away from everyone else in the gaming area. I was having a bottle of water alongside him waiting to be called for the challenge. Aside from everybody else, Mike was the only person in his right sense who found all of this to be a pretty bad idea.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9KvfMRKIeU
"I think I should just call it quits," I said as I screwed the lid back on the bottle and threw the empty bottle in the waste bin nearby.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfR5FNaazlM
"Too late for that, sis," said Mike. "As much as I think about it now, this isn't much of a bad thing after all."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcVPY1WEYtu
I threw a look at him. "What are you saying? You're supposed to be supporting me. Not thinking like everybody else."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHa7RVQErqA
"Okay, you're right. But come on, Sam, it will be so much fun. People will get to see that it's not only Daniel and I that having some gaming blood."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxIvs8tHeDl
"Thanks, I feel a lot better now." I rolled my eyes.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBImgcvUfRw
"Don't be so sarcastic. It will be good for you in some way. At least you get to challenge a member of BTS. That's one thing not every fangirl gets to experience."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE6KNfmWpiC
"As much as you have a point on that one, I still don't feel any better. What if I embarrass myself?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPH2naECkFU
"Trust me, you couldn't be as worse as Christine. I know you. You might think you aren't ready but you've got this and you'll definitely win."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVrEu3xp3m8
"Thanks Mike." I smiled at him as I gave him a small punch on the shoulder. "I really needed to hear that."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8JYZ8wgaLS
Mike smiled back at me and we soon noticed Suga and Jin approach us. Looks like it's game time.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ59yCyYfgFO
"Are you ready?" Suga asked with that corky smile on his face as he looked at me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJvQFcchW4f
"To be honest, no," I replied as I felt my cheeks flush.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbjEciSChPd
"Well, you better be because it's time."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3pWGY1YgWQ
"So, what challenge are we going for first?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbzQ6w5p3OU
"The basketball game," said Jin.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf2OmJizU1F
"That will be easy," said Mike as he looked at me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuAmHpnTCUX
I shook my head. "I don't know. I've to be fast enough to throw the balls in the hoop and gain enough points."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOqHeCExpdu
"It might be easy, but its as tough as it gets," said Suga.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUsXYHDRcqN
I blew out a sigh. "Okay, here goes nothing."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5S64JGOjC6
Mike and I followed Suga and Jin to the small crowd of spectators who had come to watch the challenge. I found RM waiting for me at the basketball game machine. In the crowd were BTS, WINNER and The Toxins. Gosh, this felt terrifying. I had to pull myself together and do what I had to do.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcXMInQeg7e
"Are you ready?" RM asked me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM4iNmy9Hjz
"No," I answered.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA8hQnxsozs
"Okay," came Lee as she came towards us. "Looks like the players are ready." She smiled at the both of us.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOhiVAcHw28
"Looks like you're the one spearheading this challenge like last time," I said.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrlSuzPJIzO
"Hey, don't complain. You know I'm older than you and I just have to. So, listen up you two. This is going to be a multiple game challenge. You will only get to play five games."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNmTpgJHYQV
I sighed in relief. Five was a reasonable number and an odd one for that matter. That meant there wasn't going to be any issue of a tie.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoJ0UPVwlYO
"So, whoever manages to win the most games is winner of the whole competition."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqTBuGUxryN
"Is there a prize for the winner?" RM asked.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYhVVDgfvrb
"Loser does whatever the winner wishes."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfMBmvWBhcW
Really? I hated such conditions just to win a game. Why couldn't I just get a doll for a prize or something and walk away free minded?
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvYAzXcVtql
"So, your first challenge is the basketball court. Whoever manages to gain more points than the other wins. Are you ready?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGN7iNqyd8C
"Yes," RM and I replied at the same time. I turned to look at him and I found him looking back at me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3oyQwNcNmJ
"Okay, so, stand in front of the basketball machine, please and I'll tell when to begin."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCeINBqUaPP
I turned towards the machine and stood there staring at the basketball net. I've never really played this game before. Better yet, I was never a fan of basketball even back in my school days. If it ever came to ball games, basketball was never really my thing.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeI2kb6Pnqu
"All the best, Sam!" I heard Seunghoon cheer behind me. I turned to look at him and I smiled. The rest of WINNER all gave me a thumbs up, wishing me the best of luck.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwt3H7Gax91
"You look nervous," said RM who stood next to me facing the machine next to mine. I turned to look back in front of me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrfnchFiXpL
"Not really a fan of basketball," I answered, trying to keep calm.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY1aZ7qUvAx
I noticed him smile at the corner of my eye with those cute killer dimples on his cheeks and said nothing more. Looks like he thought he had an advantage over me in this game. Well, he had another thing coming. I was going to do whatever it takes.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8mXBTV4G0H
"Okay," came Lee. "Now, you already know what to do. Throw the basketballs into the net and gain enough points before time runs out. You already knows what happens when you miss the target. Are you ready?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrBW4qBNJ1g
RM and I nodded our heads. I looked at the basketballs all lined up in front of me and shook my hands. I just hope I would be fast enough to throw all those balls into the net.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYknw3K5YNq
"In the count of three, you begin," said Lee. "Ready? One, two.....three!"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDOzKHXLwrv
I quickly got the first basketball in front of me and threw towards the net. I didn't even check to see if it had gone in or not because I was already getting the second ball and throwing it at the net. I saw that one go in, I got my third one and it went in too.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuaziWG9yKi
There was cheering behind me and I couldn't tell you who was supporting who. There cheers seemed all muffled up in my ears because I was too focused on the game throwing the balls towards the basketball net. I couldn't even look to my side to see how RM was doing because I might just cost myself in the game.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU4Yqx2jsnw
I felt like I had been throwing balls forever that I felt my arms get weary. This time around, I found myself throwing the balls with one hand. I would throw the ball with my left and my right one would be picking up the next one ready to throw. I kept on doing that until I ran out of balls and the buzzer from the machine soon rang, announcing that the game was over.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbrMyGYUzWX
Thank goodness! I turned around and sighed as I felt my arms ache after all the throwing. There was clapping and cheering around me and I couldn't care less because my arms ached way too much.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbRTib8EBqr
"And the winner of the this round is.....!" Lee announced. There was still cheering going on that at first I didn't get to hear the name.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO246plYyVg
"Huh?" I asked as I stretched my arm back and forth.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSCVft2ws5D
"You won the first round, Sam," said Christine as she over to hug me. "You were awesome."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN4jofWnVpD
"I won?" I asked with a surprised look on my face after she broke away from me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1fGgr2onNj
"Look at the scores behind you."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJOijJEhG6U
I turned towards the basketball machine and I noticed the score meter right next to the basketball net. I looked over at RM's score. I beat him and that made my mouth drop.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1jObgqLl2O
"What the.....?" I grew too speechless. I didn't expect this, to be honest.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGkhgRCGOyh
"Congrats, Sam," said RM with a smile. "Were you lying that you weren't good at basketball just to fool me?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrutZFJlNjP
"Aren't you seeing the surprised look on my face right now?" I asked pointing at my own face. "Trust me, I meant what I said when I said that basketball was never my thing."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYngH35iK7O
"Well, you showed him," said Mino as he came towards me. "Not only were you fast at throwing the balls, you only got to miss the net once."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFDRDi04D7e
"Really?" I now scratched my head.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2L0RgszPGn
"I told you could do it, sis," said Mike as he came over and smiled at me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeatyc3PrpX
"Thanks, but can I take a break?" I asked. "My arms are too tired. Just a few minutes."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5GZBmEaQhp
"Sure you can," said Lee. "I'll give you two five minutes then we can go over to the next challenge."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhB559Bt1AD
"I think I'll also need to rest my arms too," said RM. "Just know that this isn't over yet, Sam."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPMzhHHKG8Z
RM went over to join his BTS mates while I was surrounded by my own and WINNER.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0aaKRU14rl
"May I ask where Zoey is?" I asked.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDt7ehlKZ4Q
"Forget about her," said Seungyoon. "She just joined BTS and will be supporting RM from now on."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZenu3rW8Yk
I had my eyebrow raised. "Really?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ65VNT6BUfu
"I've always told you that Zoey will never last being your best friend," said Mike mockingly and he laughed.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3rxOZ79mv1
I looked towards BTS and I could see Zoey standing right next to Jimin. They were all talking and laughing. She seemed to be having a good time with them.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWf4UMVgsMT
"It's only for now," I said. "She can support anyone she wants."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCD9mhbcjWy
A few minutes later, Lee came over to to us.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9TVCYDEwM4
"Okay, Sam, ready for the next round?" she asked.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFZW2Iehvfu
I nodded my head and she nodded back. She went over to RM obviously asking him the same question. He also nodded his head and we all followed Lee to the next game machine.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlQxclLTB4S
The motorcycle race.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6MuIZssO00
"No way," I said as I shook my head. "You can't expect me to play this game."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK56J5aSIkI
"But that's the next challenge," said Lee.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡghagQyHhAp
"May I ask who chose this apart from you?" I asked with my arms folded.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMNQxXHxOZ1
"Zoey and Suga," Lee replied.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsHuEQsHrgh
I rolled my eyes. Zoey and Suga. No wonder. One of them had decided on this and I'm going to know who.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlqQ2cJ5Tvx
"What's wrong, Sam?" came Suga behind me and I turned to face him. "Scared of a little motorcycle ride?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfu6usiG0He
I didn't answer him at first because finding the right words to tell him was proving to be really difficult.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5iiOYL9OgW
"No, it's just that motorcycle games aren't my thing either," I answered.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFzF8eo2nct
"Okay, this is just wrong," said Mino. "Aren't these two supposed to play games they can manage to play?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIStfbEpDri
"Well, yes," said Lee. "I had no idea that Sam wasn't really a fan of motorcycle games."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFhOtNdDheB
"Trust me, she's one who crashes," said Daniel. "A lot."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUoIRZDMtWw
"See, even my brothers know that," I said as I looked at Suga.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAUBxKf4zJF
"But I'm afraid the challenge has already been set," said Suga with a smirk. "So you better get ready. Who knows, you might just be lucky with this like you were with the basketball challenge."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy0pLbBm558
I shook my head and turned away from Suga to look at the motorcycle arcade machine before me. If it was one thing I sucked at apart from basketball, was race car or motorcycle games. The reason why I hated them was because I would always crash. Though there was a time when I used to practise a lot and I had almost got it right. But right now, I was afraid that I might as well just crash big time.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ16TIvevvM5
"Sorry about Suga," came RM as he came to stand beside me. "He might be a little bit of a prick sometimes."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXhTrqy4lZC
"Don't apologise," I answered. "I might as well have lost this round anyway."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIliIb1Ie4F
"You know what? I'm not going to take your word on this one."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4IYxrASbhz
"Why?" I shrugged my shoulders. "Because of the basketball game?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxRxYexYhjA
"Yep. It's true what people say about you. You're just full of surprises."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcQYIs0PzlB
I didn't say anything as I blushed and thought of what the hell I was going to do in this game.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1gR94A4Jbg
"Hey, Sam," came Zoey. "Hope you two are ready. We're about to begin."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo4CF8DEr2A
"Did you suggest that putting in the motorcycle game in the challenge?" I asked giving Zoey the eyebrow.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXprIAsbRCv
"Ummmm," Zoey scratched her head looking somewhere else. "Oh, look, Mino is calling me. I'll be back soon."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsjJQcaqGsf
Zoey soon left RM and I alone again. He started to laugh while I just rolled my eyes.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGS2xrwWdqs
"What was that about?" RM asked.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCJ4gQ3JXHm
"Just wanted to know if she was the one who suggested bringing in this challenge. I've no doubt that she did," I answered.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0hdVDQL6Hl
"Sam," I heard someone call behind me. It was Jimin and alongside him came Jungkook.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7HXM30uBOs
"Hey," I said as RM and I turned to face them.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmNJCxAdhi2
"We didn't wish you all the best earlier," said Jimin.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcNcbelFrtp
"But aren't you supporting your leader on this?" I looked at RM with my eyebrow raised.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXBfmzMSMD8
Jimin shrugged his shoulders as he smiled at me. He looked so adorable when he smiled, I couldn't help but smile back.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHfWTE0Ee1g
"I care less who wins," he said. "As long as you guys are having fun and we are all with you."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6JqRjPMIpm
What Jimin said bore deep in my mind. He was absolutely right on this one. This wasn't some kind of competition where we would win a grand prize. We all came here to have fun and I forgot about all that because I so much as cared about winning this thing to prove how much of a gamer I was like my brothers.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8VBSqZ8kPa
"Sam?" A hand waved in front of me and I came back to reality.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcnJPKRvBxD
"Are you okay?" RM asked. He was the one who had waved his hand in front of me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡswhRSltNOT
"I am. Why?" I asked.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH14b6dD4IT
"You were smiling to yourself. What were you thinking about?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVoxgLab9iN
I turned to look at Jimin and Jungkook in front of me, still smiling.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQIDLPG4v1n
"Nothing," I replied. "Jimin said something that reminded me what I came here for."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdGJRdoRveJ
"Mmmm, I'm glad I helped," said Jimin as he chuckled. Gosh, he was just so adorable.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBBzf6aRQ32
"For a moment, I thought you were falling for Jimin," said RM.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8ExMRg9JHX
"Don't all girls?" I asked giving RM a smirk. "I'll tell you one thing, I like all of you BTS members, it's hard to chose who's my bias."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw1GJxFCJIl
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLd9lVbjDPb
I laughed. "Well, ya. Let's just say his cold sarcasm is what draws me to him."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAkZNJcmpef
"Someone should tell him that," said Jungkook.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡozvi9PvaAh
"For now, don't say a word," I said. "I'll be the one to tell him one of these fine days."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1uspI8vlKe
"But I really want to know," said RM. "Every fan girl has a bias and you saying you like us all, doesn't count."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXC52e3PjlG
"You want to know who my BTS bias is?" I raised an eyebrow at RM.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvHNAN52CpO
"I also want to know," said Jimin.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxFzRJ7j3gj
I looked at Jungkook. "What about you, Kooky? Wouldn't you like to know?"
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVXf80zwtjL
Jungkook looked startled. Looked like he didn't expect me to call him Kooky and he ended up staring at the floor, then back at me without a word.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUeLfTrVr7L
"Okay, the motorcycle race is about to begin!" Lee announced, drawing everyone's attention towards her. "Players, please step forward."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwGo0Li43Tw
"We better go," I said.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqdOxfKqR7r
"All the best," said Jungkook.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDqbb0WjYvr
I smiled at him and Jimin. As I turned around with RM, I couldn't help but wonder if I had seen Jungkook blush earlier. But I brushed that off when I approached the motorcycle game machine.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFQFrZNyawd
"Players, mount your motorcycles," said Lee.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOa7W0BkEkH
I got on my motorcycle and I couldn't help but feel familiar with it. It was almost like getting on a bicycle. I smiled at myself. Maybe with this, I wouldn't do such a horrible job as crash in the game.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZxIAb420dE
RM mounted on his motorcycle. I turned to look at him and he at me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgHaU3SKf6s
"Hope you don't crash," he said.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUra0jRavo8
I made a flapping noise with my lips. "Please, crashing is almost my middle name," I said with a smirk.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9nBDghksz4
I held the handlebars of the motorcycle and I noticed the buttons on it. The forward, reverse, acclerator, the brakes and nitro booster buttons. I took a deep breath and prayed that I shouldn't crash.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtS6vsSBNIB
"Okay," came Lee. "Ready? When the lights turn green, you go."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡovyqpnueib
I turned to look at the screen in front of me. I was facing a long tarred road. The traffic robot above the screen showed red, seconds later, it was yellow. I took a deep breath and my thumb was ready to press on the accelerator button.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXm1qEDOg2H
The green light came on and I pushed on the accelerator. My motorcycle on the screen sped forward and I was on the road. So far so good as I was doing okay. When it came to every corner, I would turn smoothly holding onto the brakes so as not to skid off the road, moving the motorcycle I was on side to side. There was only one problem though.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9VuwOdGysG
RM was ahead of me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCCmbfKzznP
I didn't care though. As much as I was having fun, not crashing or anything, I had a trick up my sleeve.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9Obj5ZSrgh
One good thing was that we were only going for one round. I stared at the map on the side of the screen. We were almost close to the finish line and I was close on RM's tail. I stepped on the accelerator and I was now neck and neck with RM.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ8htlaHLPw
There was cheering behind me going on and that made me motivated. RM pulled a little further away from me and just as we were almost close to the finish line, I pushed on the nitro booster and my motorcycle on the road dashed at a high speed and passed the finish line. The words "WINNER" flashed on my screen.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn4LJSuafA8
"WOOOOHOOOO!" I exclaimed happily with my hands in the air. I felt so alive like never before.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG2rhjMJ8ZY
I felt someone from behind lift me off the motorcycle. It was Seunghoon. Immediately I was off the motorcycle, he hugged me properly.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwK1Nya4q05
"That was so cool, Sam," he said as he looked at me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1iiT0GRy89
"And you didn't even crash," said Jinwoo as he came to join us. "You were really in the game."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMqOXws3vyv
"Thanks," I said.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeKcUp2lrF5
"How did you know when to press nitro to win?" Seungyoon asked.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡicykV4y2Nt
"I learnt from the best," I said as I turned to look at my two brothers.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl7Je0mMSDl
"If dad were here, he would think you really deserve a driver's license," said Daniel. Mike and I laughed.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4Z0eIza3Zi
I heard clapping behind me and I turned around to see RM. He had also just mounted off the motorcycle he was riding on and was applauding for me.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4ldCv82dGz
"Once again," he said. "You surprised me at the last minute."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKJKFe04Qy5
"Hope you aren't mad," I said as I winced.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvNEZ53M4pz
"Do I look mad? I'm being beaten by a girl, left, right and centre. This probably is the most surprising day of my life."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkwzpaMrFqy
"Tell me about it," said Mike. "She beat me in a Tekken game. That was also a shock on my part."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQXvl2TVCWm
"Looks like she's just like us after all," said Daniel.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFbYeXpVvpF
"Mmm, excuse me," I said with my eyebrow raised. "I was born first, so, you got the 'it' for gaming, from me."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNAfYl7BqUa
"That's so not true," said Mike, shaking his head.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQCp9opctPu
"It is. It's just that you boys were born in a time and era where video games became so popular that it was a must for every boy to know how to play."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvPdyqjHBzH
"I think I agree on Sam on this one," said J-Hope as he came to join us. "If playing video games was a girl-thing, they would be unstoppable."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKaybDVVku1
I smiled at J-Hope. "I definitely like your thinking."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0KrL5wCalA
"Just because females are proven to be the smartest doesn't mean they are unstoppable," said Daniel.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWdOTMA1SyE
"I don't know what you're all arguing about here," said Zoey as she approached us. "But we have to move on to the third challenge."

"Which is.....? RM and I asked at the same time.

"Dance Dance Revolution," answered Christine as she appeared behind Zoey.

"Christine! I was then one whose supposed to tell them that," Zoey complained. "Not you."

"Finally, a real competition," I said as I looked at RM.

"Why? Because we can dance ourselves?" RM asked.

"Let me give you a tip," said J-Hope. "RM isn't that much of a dancer. I bet in this round, you might as well have won it."

"We'll see about that," I said. "Who knows, he might just surprise me."

We moved on to the Dance Dance Revolution game and RM and I got on with the challenge right away. I was having fun and so was he. Everyone else who watched was cheering for us because they were also enjoying it. I ended up winning the challenge.

"Okay, it's pretty obvious that you've won this challenge," said RM. "You've already beat me in three games."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcvQbf0HlSX
"You want to back out on the challenge?" I smirked.

"Ya, I should have listened to your brother and Christine that you were on your A game today."

"Is that a forfeit plea I hear?" came Lee as she approached us from behind.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCFefavw2Lt
"Yep," said RM as he turned to look at Lee then back at me. "Sam's already beat me in three games with two more to play. She's already won."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7NxSCqxEmx
"Okay," said Lee as she smiled at RM, then she turned to look at me. "Looks like we've our winner."

"Yep," said Lee as she turned around to address the whole crowd. "Sam's our winner."

Everyone watching cheered and clapped for me. My two brothers and Christine came to the Dance Dance Revolution platform I was standing on to hug me.

"Now can we please just have fun now?" I asked. "I mean, we all came to the arcade to have fun right? Not just watch a challenge."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzn9l4hhjlt
"I agree," said Zoey. "Now that I see everyone having fun, I think I also want to join in and play a game or two."

"Okay," said V as he came to stand next to her. "Let's go play darts. You and I."

Zoey smiled. "Sure."

"Ha! I told you would fall in love with the arcade today, Zoey," said Mike.

"Ya, ya, whatever." Zoey playfully rolled her eyes.

"Speaking of which," came Seunghoon as he came to approach me and took me by the hand. "You and I have a Tekken game to play."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6qSPCBSFjV
"I forgot about that," I said, blushing as I looked at his hand holding mine.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjPPgBzpdSZ
"I want to go against her too," said Suga as he gave me a smirk. "I'll have to see for myself if she's really that good as others say she is."
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe6v6NR9Djd
"Same here," said RM.
217Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHRcz9n5t4H
"I think I'll be here dancing," said Mike. "Who's with me?"

After walking away from the Dance Dance Revolution game machine, I went along with Seunghoon, Suga and RM to play Tekken and everyone else dispersed heading to play other games.

We all had fun, The Toxins, BTS, WINNER and Lee. We played various games together that it didn't matter who was better than the other. We even had fun at the doll claw machines. Though it was funny how most of us failed to get the dolls out a number of times.

Time seemed to have stopped when we were in the arcade. Because the time we were all leaving the place, we were surprised that it was way past lunch time, late in the afternoon.ns22.214.171.124da2
