The fact that we had excitedly emerged victorious yesterday with making BTW official couldn't get out of my mind. I couldn't get over the feeling and I know I wasn't the only one.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQB3iLT0AXx
Yesterday after our meeting, us The Toxins, BlackPink and WINNER decided to have our own private party. We all couldn't be in one place because of the condition our managers gave us not to meet too often. We weren't going to put BTW on the line and risk all that we struggled to keep alive. So, the only way we could celebrate together was through webcam using Skype.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNRuti3qk89
Ya, you heard me. Skype. As much as it sounds silly, it was the only thing I could think of and at the end of it all, everything worked out pretty well. I used my laptop, which I realise, I haven't used in a while and connected with WINNER and BlackPink at their respective dorms also through their laptops.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7yEkI5M6fZ
Our celebration was silly if you ask me. There wasn't any food or drinks we could all drink together and celebrate. But we did dance to pop songs and act all goofy because we were so happy that BTW will be made official.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8sesW5hOlU
Not only did we celebrate, we also had a chat about a lot of things. Not about how BTW will be become a huge hit when its finally official. We also got to know each other a little better and it was fun having this kind of interaction even if it was over the net.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJZVB55HbtV
As much as I am happy about our victory, I still couldn't get off what happened with G-Dragon yesterday that it still hurt. We haven't tried to talk to each other since. I hadn't tried to call him and he hadn't even tried either. I think it was better this way because I needed to get my mind off things and focus on the future with BTW.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnQ3vyv13kE
And also, I had to focus on the cards I had in my hands right now. I only had three cards left. I looked across from where I sat on the floor and I could see Daniel had three cards in his hands too.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjwW7K94YV3
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQD2xwULOpZ
I looked at the set of cards in my hand. I had a queen, a nine and a three. Zoey's really lucky, and so am I.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0IYoIgiv8k
"Here," I gave Zoey the card and she happily took it from my hand. From the set of cards in her hands, she drew out another three and threw the two cards in the centre of the circle.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZxbT2ZG7EN
"Finally," said Zoey. "I've gone fishing too many times and I don't know if I can handle all these cards in my hands."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAlkptLt0Ls
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPWFX4kIIwN
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ82pCmLjd6B
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4mNAErMwvF
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOu8wEIQMqC
"Dang it!" I muttered as I stretched out my hand to the deck of cards, called the pool, that were overturned so that you wouldn't see the card you picked. This time I picked an ace of eights. How agonising!
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDr55bg1007
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdEEXXp2cc4
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZl6kDVwmlY
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyly5OZH5wF
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE96VDGwzaV
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFYIEdYs5JB
"Are you sure?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD0Hpcq1MKH
"You think I'm lying?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNWmr77RaH3
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNVg1r0qN8C
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaSFDm3a1Pz
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyHU3hhRlsE
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8LDdWanbXx
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2F6ZXXSPZy
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzetYEkyKOy
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3YscVXPyye
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyCcKGpItG3
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi2yI7Q6lt5
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQuzTw9ib7K
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKSlLTsQkuc
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbyd9fPKUKV
Daniel stretched his hand to the pool to pick a card. When he looked at it, he smiled as he withdrew another card from his hands and threw the two cards in the centre. They were both twos. The rest of us gasped.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUqrSxC2SM0
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ32PWP5oy65
When it comes to Go Fish, Daniel was always considered the lucky one when it came to picking out cards from the pool. It's because of that that he's usually the first one to have all his cards laid down. When he doesn't get the card he's asking for, he somehow manages to pick the right card at just the right moment from the pool.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdjWf4RqFLq
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbsiC7Stlze
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwzt4GWoDDC
"That's not true and you know it," said Christine. "How many times have we all shuffled the cards and still Daniel wins by laying down all his cards first?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSdO6Sdm6JL
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfM7aIWZTMk
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV3zEPt9aEm
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaBfj8HbDUV
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDdBFI1NbTc
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6ggjznR5FX
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7z545VoPVB
"I know," Mike smirked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL4Loo1TiNh
"Sam, do you have a....?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyGSYASS0cE
Zoey was interrupted by the hotel landline ringing. We all fell silent as the five of us looked at each other wondering who was going to pick it up.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhhHd7rjBVn
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeXTjV1VYua
"Looks like no one is going to do it, so I will," said Christine as she got up from the floor, leaving the cards she had overturned on the floor and went to pick up the phone.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM9sJn43zm8
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡytr2KJ21fK
I turned to look at Christine and I saw her looking back at me. Who was here to see us that she looked so nervous? Could it be G-Dragon?
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOzErXR7Gtk
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡka7tTZDa9d
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeU1TUJKo6L
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHB1iEdrQQp
"Ummm, it's G-Dragon," said Christine as she looked at us and her eyes fell on me last. "I hope it's okay that I let him in."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZts5y6zhqZ
"Well, it's fine if he has come here to apologise," said Daniel. "But I ain't mad at him for what he did yesterday."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ81BK2WvVSw
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjdkT3Zjk74
"Why me?" I asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtovGkfpOAf
"Well, it's pretty obvious you're still mad at him unlike the rest of us and that you don't want to see him."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAgyH4j27P8
I got up from the floor and dropped the cards I was holding. "I am mad, yes. And, I'm in no mood for his apology. If you need me, I'll be in my room."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqoBQwJvpvU
"You know, you aren't being fair," said Christine. "Why can't you hear him out first? I bet for him to come here he is sorry for what he did."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCEgGaWR8cP
"Christine's right," said Zoey as she also got up from the floor. "He hurt you and us too. But you already know that if it wasn't for what he did, there would be no BTW. And the most important thing is that you two are friends. Knowing you, you don't like to hate anyone forever. We all know why he did that in the first place."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeWBETPvtRb
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvGeBhFGynH
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxdVvEG343u
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcPOBIaya35
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0ibeo1YqV6
"No, I do...." Daniel paused as his eyes looked like they would pop out of his sockets any moment now. "Ooooh. I get it now."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2Yw1HFGCxY
I shook my head at my brothers and before I could think of what to say next, we heard the sound of the elevator doors open. He was here. Dang it! I didn't want to be in the lounge when he got here. What was I going to do now?
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDGF8RBHNGv
I heard footsteps from the hall and I knew he was coming. He soon appeared at the entrance of the lounge and I paused at the sight of him. My heart even skipped a beat.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhfs5OmqBSG
G-Dragon was staring right back at me and this time he had a sad smile on his face unlike the silly cute ones he would give me most of the time. I noticed the bags under his eyes and I could tell he hadn't slept well last night. Apparently, I hadn't either.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtJDwtPL9Zm
"Ah! GD, you're here!" Zoey said excitedly as she went over to him and gave him a brief hug. I guess after all that had happened between the two of them, Zoey still showed some affection towards him. She's always admired him after all.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8oA2jGDI8d
"Looks like you're not mad at me," said G-Dragon as he put up a bright smile for Zoey. I turned away when I felt a sharp piercing inside.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGDwgO20GbO
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ43VFUrNC5n
"Same here," said Christine as she went over to hug G-Dragon as well. "Are you okay? You look like you haven't slept at all."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNf1P3JU0GG
"Of course he hasn't," said Mike as he and Daniel got up from the floor. "I can tell it's because you're worried that Sam might stay mad at you forever."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFKWqdCTIEB
I wanted to fire back at my brother but I kept my mouth shut instead when everyone turned to look at me. I felt like I had been put in an awkward position right now and all I felt like running out of the lounge.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1L26V8gHOY
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6wZC7BAV4V
"No," I said just as the other Toxins were about to turn around and leave. "G-Dragon and I already talked yesterday. There is no need for us to talk and I am surly not in a mood to hear a thing he has to say."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtY9UYotfUS
Zoey's jaw dropped as she looked at me. "You're so harsh, Sam. To be honest, I've never heard you say anything like this."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡigJtVpdGQv
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6LmDy9eIWU
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrn2O7JZKn7
"No, I have nothing to say," G-Dragon replied. "Sam's right. We have nothing to talk about. And just like she isn't in a mood to hear what I've to say, I didn't come here to see her."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvWKCTky2Dg
I was stunned. And so were the rest of The Toxins. I tried not to show my reaction as I folded my arms and pursed my lips tightly together. Because I felt like screaming out loud with rage.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJjUdFJ76Sk
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBKOndu7uLG
"I wanted to apologise to you guys with what happened yesterday," said G-Dragon. "I didn't get to do so when I had the chance, so, I'm sorry."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJiw1gKOFeG
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiIDV5P9L4t
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx9DwvFZO7D
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvVWvkngJEL
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡswnUIpZ8dV
I almost dropped to the floor as I felt the world spin below my feet. Did he just say BigBang's dorm? The dorm where the five lived under one roof throughout their music career. Oh, gosh! I felt like screaming to the heavens with excitement.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP7DDuMPo5K
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbcPFThVKTj
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEBIJFgl5t4
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4hiwtgo0x5
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYl9iKymN1e
G-Dragon smiled. And I could recognise it from a mile away. He was doing all of this just to get to me. If he thought he was going to move me, I wasn't shaken at all. Well, at least that's what I told myself.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUakGnxjLMH
"I can't believe we to get to go to your dorm," said Mike with an unbelievable smile on his face. "Okay, I can't help it. I'm excited too."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfVSYZm2Zes
"Me too," said Daniel. "Wait, hold up. Should we tell Collins that we will be going to your dorm so that we wouldn't get in trouble?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBdszYB3vsi
"Daa! Of course," said Zoey. "I wouldn't like to get in trouble ever again. Especially now that we have two managers instead of one."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkAOzOGPOxD
I smirked in the inside. Even if they were to ask Collins, they wouldn't get to go. As far as the managers' instructions were concerned, we were told to keep a low profile at the moment. If the universe was on my side, the managers weren't going to agree at all.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgsrGIai98j
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡueMCoWwILg
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvt72RdhknI
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5Ia6HTgSBm
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjcfhdCuSRq
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAPdEGfWnIT
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTGxbDvU0aJ
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfgsLb72Q0e
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAQmDGeYgKE
It was now the two of us. All alone in the empty, quiet lounge. This felt ridiculous. Especially when I imagined a tumbleweed roll right between us in the room.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJYugiA71Zl
I wasn't looking at G-Dragon the whole time the quiet moments passed. I could feel his eyes on me and my eyes were on the floor looking at the cards scattered everywhere. Our game of Go Fish had been completely interrupted and forgotten about all because of him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR4umHRaYM1
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhRDgE6sz7P
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIytdS5vKW7
"May I ask why?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJwdP3kgsFj
I looked up at him. "You know why."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ4Mw8WHnry
I went down to kneel on the floor and started to gather all the cards together. I saw G-Dragon approach through the corner of my eye and I pretended not to notice.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4jzfYNDxq5
"It's a pity that you aren't coming," said G-Dragon as he now stood a foot away from me. "We were going to have so much fun together."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4D1ZNeZQ8U
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMuMymJTsLe
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsoIrVxv9Wg
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNwpikex5hm
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCW6Mgl6SuE
"Ya, it didn't."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNs4ZnPwXla
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFeaRodYT27
"Mmmm." I stared up at the ceiling as I bit my lip pretending to be deep in thought. "I don't know. But you'll figure it out someday."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU6sCryDmbL
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYk4IYAoNce
I almost dropped the cards I was holding in my hands and my cheeks blushed all of the sudden. I cleared my throat as I tucked a strand of my hair behind my ear. I looked at G-Dragon who had a playful smirk on his face and that almost made me blush even more. But I stood my ground and told myself that I was not shaken by his soothing charm.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbWvozU5iMx
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHXECKXBOGA
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ21CWB2iDIc
"You don't seem to be surprised at all with what I said. The Sam I know would have her cheeks blushing throughout. But this time, you didn't even last for seconds."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0XsgnLCNVI
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwQhDjbiwy3
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnY16kMOg9Q
Just as I was about to take my leave, G-Dragon came to stand in front of me, blocking my way. I almost bumped into him as we stood so close facing each other.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtoAC1383ld
"I still think I have an effect on you, my dear kitty," G-Dragon said softly as his eyes bore into mine. "If anything, I think I got you when I told the others that I was taking them to see BigBang's dorm."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡORA8zqrd2e
"Ha!" I almost laughed out loud, rolling my eyes. "As much as I am a fan, trust me, I don't need you to invite me over just to see your dorm."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAxZy2YmvCd
G-Dragon nodded his head and smiled. "Of course, the rest of my group members will do so when you ask them to. Since they are likely to obey to your every command."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡggMsXUDooN
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDOKLaE3tOl
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ59Sr3DiedK
"I don't give orders, GD."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1ooMo8xpv8
"You've no idea how you sometimes play the role of a queen, Sam." G-Dragon leaned closer and his musky cologne almost drew me in. "You might not know it, but you're one."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡum4FciCvbl
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBVNq3Ss8qP
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4afBk7n5D4
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCLxWpIRFcx
I smirked. "One thing is for sure, I can't stay mad at people forever. Most especially you. I won't lie that I am still upset with what you did yesterday. But that doesn't mean you don't deserve another chance."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjfbVz72iOf
"So, you forgive me?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8Q7Ie9DEiY
I smiled this time around. "Yes. And that's only because I can't stand that you have to struggle to make me fall for your little charms and schemes just for me to forgive you." I didn't mean it anyway.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxVnKqojNMA
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeidO22CLhx
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU1PdXqIejT
G-Dragon had a surprised look on his face and I felt like kissing him on the cheek for the fun of it. But instead, I gave him a wink and walked past him. Just as I was about to leave the lounge, Zoey and Christine suddenly appeared from the passage way, blocking my way.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhbuCpdb3kJ
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSuHBflDGt0
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuOj7x0dOjN
Zoey wore a white body top which has the words written "Queen" in gold and matching blue tight denim jeans. She looked at herself when I complimented her.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnD4ttmjz2C
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNUOJAN6rUG
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBfVGV5UwWY
"Ya, but I always look good that you don't have to say it. You're going with us whether you like it or not."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrb3e2HwO25
"But I don't feel like going."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOuUmT2JI3s
"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA2VzguWBZG
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5FCAT9A6TE
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ1HNLa0zoH
"Zoey's right," said G-Dragon behind me. "The rest of BigBang are all expecting you to be there. And you know that they won't like it if you don't come."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk0Dyuz7P9G
I sighed. G-Dragon did have a point. And I'm afraid if I didn't refuse, these two crazy girls were going to drag me out of here in the worst and also embarrassing way possible.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkVOEVHxdwU
"Do you want me to call Collins?" Christine asked when I didn't say anything. "You know that if you don't go, we can't either. Remember what happened when we left without you to Caribbean Bay?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYIzw7KtYd1
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwDTGL0fxrw
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkQCG0FDQ2a
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRJ6OCBedm4
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEoluPzskNw
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuIdAXoRJrF
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiiW2k9R2y1
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI7PHFgszp9
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkgRc8FG63j
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2omvchr5O6
G-Dragon only smiled and didn't say a word. I furrowed my eyebrows at him. Looks like he won this round with the help of Zoey and Christine. Next time, he was going to beg for mercy.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDbnIkgP1tY
I went to the room to get myself ready and within minutes I found myself in the lounge where everyone else was waiting for me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUtYE16kjuP
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGtRPQnpaYR
"Yes," said Daniel as he got up from his seat. "I thought the others were kidding when they said you were coming along with us."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBTCvSgBiEO
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQkSCBfTusv
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHWLuxoZPWF
I quickly turned around and found myself in the hall heading to the elevator. I heard muttering and whispering behind me as the others followed me down the hall. I pressed the elevator button to summon the lift.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhZgUA4WT6Z
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVGEG86rC39
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNUDxIDHBGR
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdDzTVqmZsj
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7n2dKqOPKK
While the elevator continued to move, I was looking up at the elevator monitor when G-Dragon who stood behind me leaned in close to whisper in my ear.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT8CXQfHyeC
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZVw1LOPuJW
If I had worn pointed high heels with this black summer dress, I would have stepped on G-Dragon's foot so that I could shut him up. I pretended not to have heard him and I sighed in relief when the doors flew open and we all came out of the elevator.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3w2ZBcy0Qm
When we all stepped out of the lobby through the hotel doors, we found a group of paparazzi waiting for us. Immediately they saw us, they had us surrounded. Luckily, the hotel security came along to ward them off until we got to the cars waiting for us. I for one went in the SUV with my two brothers while Zoey and Christine went in G-Dragon's fancy white lamborgini. I wasn't surprised. Right now, it felt like G-Dragon and I were at war and some people had to pick a side. It was obvious the girls were with G-Dragon and as for my brothers, were obviously on mine because of the special bond we share.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYU7FAxhvEV
G-Dragon's car lead the way out of the hotel premises and the SUV followed behind it. While the cars drove down the streets of Seoul, I felt my phone beep in my hand and when I looked at it, I noticed a message from Zoey. When I read it, I sucked my teeth.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp9XGGw4WR0
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK6o0diYCak
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZY1t7cyIky
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdYu2nufh37
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkwnS1N6eQx
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdCIDHMcJOJ
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaA6Jetvc8M
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVltIyPRu5C
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡapifFbA2As
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnN0pbkmvrf
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0LwUH9siaz
"I hate that I've to be around you guys all the time. You can take care of yourselves but Collins doesn't want the Caribbean Bay incident to happen again."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNAAgUctIW3
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0MBmuZ77PP
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ25MlAJqgXQ
"What did she send you?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRHRWY9iSpf
"She's just telling me that I should have been in G-Dragon's car because right now they are having fun. I know she's trying to make me envious but it's not working."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaBDEQq2l9b
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa0mPFA7MTb
"I won't lie, I was. I didn't want to go so that I could show him I am seriously mad. He did do this just for me to forgive him. But it's going to take a whole lot than that."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYuqiOnfvgJ
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9S7Ioejjss
"It's not really working out though. Looks like he's still getting his way for me to get close. Close enough for me to forgive him."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSED5fYfg1m
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsGBt2eq1jg
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBrHWGS8ATR
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVILsvBauvz
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS1nKns3NF3
A few minutes later, G-Dragon's car turned round a corner and packed in front of an apartment building. The car I was in packed behind G-Dragon's car. My brothers and I got out of the car. G-Dragon, Zoey and Christine were already out of the vehicle they were in.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVZn5V5zDIE
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiiovEwMnTN
"Yes, it is, my little kitty," said G-Dragon he came to stand next me as he also looked at the building. I took a side step away from him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXkt26gPgJA
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeNw93vw3iC
"You can go and we'll catch up."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgM6pLLtiki
Zoey started to walk up to the entrance of the building when she finally turned back and this time, she looked really angry as she stared at GD.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVnZzwn68kF
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9G2tkZJWxk
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQP9KXqDBrW
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWh8cqdNvjP
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgBYcwL88HM
We followed G-Dragon up the small stone steps of the building and we found ourselves in the apartment lobby room. I had to admit, it's a pretty lobby with a smooth shiny black marble floor and the decor in the seating area was exquisite. I noticed a lovely glass chandelier hanging in the middle of the room.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaWvYglN2Vi
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWBwMbqoWGD
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcgCIY9KEzx
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMDwOwRPDrg
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaGn3gX956u
"I don't," said Zoey and I quickly nudged her roughly on her side so that she could keep quiet. He howled in pain, silently.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDGq0rBWBYQ
We headed towards the elevator and got in. G-Dragon pressed the button leading to the floor of his apartment. When we got to the floor, we came out of the elevator and turned down the hall with G-Dragon leading the way.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0vCgtROp2S
We got to the end of the hall and G-Dragon stopped in front of the wooden door to the apartment. He knocked on the door and in a few seconds, the door flew open.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFItwfGhavF
The person who opened the door was Seungri. And by the looks of things, it looked like he had come straight out of bed in his light blue sleeping robe which had pandas on it and his eyes looking all sleepy. But I had to admit, he looked cute with his short hair all messed up.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV3lXCBllVh
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUXnmjbK7wY
"It's us Seungri," I said.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuv8bNRJrrf
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRPS9qwEqoA
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRm8c4WADxJ
"It can clearly show," said G-Dragon. Sounded like he was losing his temper. "I told you not to stay up so late but instead you went out for some party."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfT0ykypsMx
"You went out?" Zoey asked putting her hands on her hips as if she were an angry parent. "Why didn't you invite us? Better yet me."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYKTJIXb8p7
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE7gwPoy7fP
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVAew7Mrp4d
"Whatever. Now that you're here, welcome to our dorm!" said Seungri as he came forward and took me by the hand, dragging me inside the apartment.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEBJccuI3zg
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRrrUfog6VW
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsYrZnLRPbf
The living room had an exquisite and most expensive furniture with its fine white leather sofas, but it again looked more like a gaming room on my part because of the five colourful bean bag chairs all in awkward places in the middle of the living room.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB4KVV1JDE8
There was even a large flat plasma screen TV facing the living room and I noticed game controllers on the floor and a game console. That made me raise an eyebrow for a moment. Don't tell me they were gamers or else I was going to faint.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdFlYUjcPYb
"Oh my gosh, this place is totally tight," said Mike as he and Daniel ran in towards the living room and got the game controllers.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJn48CR0AOA
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzzpBd0Sr0G
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpShfEC0in5
"This is so cool," said Daniel as he sat on a bean bag and looked at the games on the floor. "Sam, can we start to stay here for a little while till we go back home?" Daniel looked at me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk8VGgsqhAx
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡREcwvKYqj2
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6BezzplF63
I turned to look behind me and noticed Taeyang coming from the small kitchen area in an apron. He gave us that eye smile of his and I smiled back.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfwI0wmhK62
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvN6Fl5XHj9
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQjdrtfQ8go
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRb7tUGurck
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzhv7Txefls
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRf1z7KyIx5
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9uZrXHMX29
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYvJBMANQAO
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmWN1ZXUvxy
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8xYlIuTIQ7
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHs6YYtlVAf
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoVU2t3tGmL
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx6MnJph6W2
"No," said G-Dragon as he held my other free hand and stopped me from going with Seungri, pulling me back to him. "You go change. I'll take Sam and the other girls around."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO4ReHGQrLf
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF9v8zOE2wS
"I don't trust you, Seungri." G-Dragon pulled me towards him. "You're obviously going to take her to your room and have her all to yourself."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWKutnWij7j
I blushed when G-Dragon said that. There were many ways to describe what he meant and now wasn't the time to figure out what. I seriously didn't like the position I was in at the moment. I felt like a rag doll who is being fought over by two annoying kids.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuCWKCBJA60
"I am loving this drama," said Zoey, as she giggled. "Looks like someone doesn't like the idea of you being alone with someone else, Sam."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxDijXpgpaA
"I get it Zoey, thank you very much," I said. I turned to look at G-Dragon and then at Seungri. "And you two better let go of my hands or I'll scratch your eyes out. I mean it."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOdDb8dJjnO
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8SVoHCIjPe
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNp2CftjGKR
At first, G-Dragon and Seungri hesitated as they looked at each other. I gave them a warning look that I was serious with my threat but they didn't seem to budge.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDP4od8zVS5
"Come on, guys, you're both acting childish," said Taeyang. "You know that's no way to treat a lady. And it's Sam for that matter."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIWcoGeoDWK
G-Dragon sighed as he slowly let go of my hand first, then Seungri. I felt relieved and I took a few steps away from them to stand beside Taeyang and the girls.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo7YqtTCBnc
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ356MzT8BBE
"Well, I would have loved to see your pretty little claws," said Seungri with a beaming smile on his face. I stuck out a tongue at him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYZls8wwbxF
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpcmBPlOv5S
"They will both show you around," said Taeyang pointing at both Seungri and G-Dragon. "That won't be a problem, right?" He looked at the two.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2iG5dtIt9y
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4IkBdqiNEm
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmelaVT7hHw
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT1l03GbMBG
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmRcOPBRw5U
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlTIq8iv6wc
I was super grateful that I could save myself from Seungri and G-Dragon by keeping myself busy. I gladly smirked at them before I turned around to the small kitchen area with Taeyang. I didn't want to get caught in any kind of drama like the one we had seconds ago. And besides, I didn't even want to be near G-Dragon at all.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzPYJygYowk
"Well, that was something," said Taeyang as soon as the others had gone down the hall and my two brothers were now caught up playing a game in the living room.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuVOyxnKJE5
"Tell me about it," I said as I walked over to the stove and bent down to see what was cooking in the oven. "Wow, are you making a quiche?" I stared at Taeyang with amazement. "I never knew you would be this good at cooking."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfeY7OT60bq
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmsRx3xGb3S
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjHTChf1LFv
"Then you better put this on," said Taeyang as he went to get a red and white checkered apron hang on the wall next to the refrigerator and gave it to me. "I don't want you messing up that pretty dress of yours."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrSVrEjNzHL
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5Svk5gnxes
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgLBmPQJJEM
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWpwwtG9FJA
"No, you're not. You can start by getting eggs in the fridge. You can make an egg omelette or anything you seem appropriate. I'm almost done with everything. Then we can make lasagna afterwards."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX3YGx9nOQo
"On it," I said as I went over to open the refrigerator to get the eggs. I noticed a bowl of strawberries and I managed to put one in my mouth and got the tray of eggs.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhy82MJWZAh
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQZ2yistwCC
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9fLPWHcKNV
I helped prepare the omelettes and Taeyang's quiche was ready. He had prepared other food stuffs as well, like sandwiches, croissant, bacon, fresh toast and pancakes.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg203LhFVT1
I was done with the omelettes and decided to help Taeyang out making the lasagna. While we did that, we had a fun chat. I asked him about how Hyo-rin was doing and he asked me about the little drama we had yesterday with G-Dragon, the managers and BTW. I explained everything to him though it felt like a painful process, especially on the part where G-Dragon was willing to get us in trouble with our managers.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtyytmCRpl5
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdx5bFpKx2C
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlhD5VQTFlx
"All except you of course."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi5gSvDt3RX
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf4dqn2y6CQ
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI3KXmZHMp0
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTsSIUIezwq
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHqqLFaJNgW
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgZHhenn3q2
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLLH6V4QbUM
"Why do you say that?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxi9UXUQpqr
"Because, right after he came back from YG, I had never seen him look like that before. Looks like he was about to lose something that mattered to him the most."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGXwBoyoFoo
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu99JKlW1Bm
"True. But person wise, he cares about you a lot. And that might just make him a better person than he is. It's best he tastes love the hard way. And what better way than not forgiving him anytime sooner over what he did?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3257rWqWls
Taeyang gave me a small smile as he turned away and approached the counter in the middle of the kitchen. I didn't say a word as I thought of what he said. I quickly brushed it off afterwards as I put the lasagna in the oven.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYCM6PwxDIS
A few minutes later just as I was taking the lasagna out of the stove with oven mittens, I felt someone standing right behind me. For a moment I thought it was Taeyang because I had left him arranging the food by the counter. I turned around with the hot pan the lasagna and I soon realised who had been standing behind me.

It was TOP. And he moved away just in time before I could burn him with the pan.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡreOs73EVgO
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaXBVT9dB9U
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU1qWDSingg
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5baiy0U2J8
"Now you can hug me," I said as I stretched out my arms wide still wearing oven mittens and TOP took a step forward to hug me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBdmR3FDEwA
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ565B4Q5bgh
"I also love to cook," I said with a smile. "And it's been a while since I have been in the kitchen so I took the opportunity."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEN2ZDfZxbY
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ537gtz0c6W
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd4gWnuosdc
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBmErLweDCc
"I was expecting him to."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeJSAHhPzAB
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5RzvYLStTw
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWi7zNXaT4Q
Taeyang, TOP and I turned towards the living room area and there was Daesung who sat in between Mike and Daniel, facing the TV and tapping uncontrollably on the game controllers. They were all fixed on the screen and I couldn't help but shake my head at them. Boys.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcoMLK7PsDY
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhshVPnVdMl
"Arrgh, no fair," said Mike as he slapped his hands in annoyance and at the same time, dropping the game controller to the floor. "I almost had you. Almost."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrgZO4w9l2c
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡthv2YLPbZw
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwgXZZMZHYC
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtcMLpZgo24
"Don't think I forgot about you, Sam," said Daesung as he got from where he sat and came to hug me. "How are you?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUv59FJmitB
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF9eGECNDFQ
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGbBph8NZaI
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCaYGi2a2fD
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAwsY2GuuxO
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcvXSfIdIQI
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8UuLjGODRk
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0bv2Qgdpky
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSWRLyQHiRZ
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIjU3sPOGBh
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb0Pw3G3ExJ
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQz7K6bu1QR
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXB6aCwklF8
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfg2Pe8TWir
As Taeyang and I served the food on the low dining table in the dining area, voices came echoing down the hall. G-Dragon, Zoey, Christine and Seungri were talking and laughing loudly as they approached the living area. Daesung came following behind them.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXOiIjrE1SE
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC4Pov0s1dc
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdQTEwaEHJH
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFOjajzb6V3
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcFcCwPJnVD
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnTl2nHenWr
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEbEXpATQbH
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2FUva3DoiL
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLa2XxYRZ9q
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbadY9Ny11H
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuRCnxRSRQO
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK2MV2y942S
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKWOf7Z3LRT
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5diYGsBwLp
"Sure," I said.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFbM4QxzMI9
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRZhKltu5hK
"Huh?" I blushed.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu6u41pFRJb
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFcnrNWxtzn
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlp6hPtjpmz
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIsrbdGIiNr
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB30fZHNmQu
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUXniSfItzK
I went over to the kitchen to grab the strawberries. When I went back to the dining table, everyone had settled down and the only place left for me to sit was at the end of the table beside Daesung, facing G-Dragon on the opposite side. Great! Just what I need. I didn't want eating my meal facing him. What luck.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5AjA8cZQIj
After I settled the strawberries with the rest of the dishes on the table and took the empty space next to Daesung, I did my best not to look at G-Dragon as I started to settle the cut quiche on my plate.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoiixjJIpw3
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpcWqfz6Nb9
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnPZCeZggUq
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgEOwypn8uY
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡphnYn0wHtf
"Speaking of which," I said as I looked at Taeyang who sat a distance away from me. "You did promise me you would teach me how to make some Korean dishes."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpgx4ZIk9XS
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQCNwoaUnQN
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzVw9OMV30r
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp2ndp4MyHT
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYhaLqsCTju
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE6kitgQRbK
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJhCeuOUAyj
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUgi0nqD5PY
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6HFZSOc8LQ
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHMafY8bUVR
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFJPCWzubfF
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwnfMMfkq1k
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5Shmy75PkP
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyAmyFWXTN5
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw2f82LztEz
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLTh3pIL6rg
"I also don't get it," said Zoey. "We are definitely going shopping, GD. Don't mind us, Sam. It's not like anything bad is going to happen when we go shopping. Besides, anyone else can come along too."
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD7td9kzNtZ
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3RNHH35SzX
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFcmxDzQtKU
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFzzfNEsvsB
I rolled my eyes at them. I didn't want to say anything that might just offend them, so I kept quiet and put a sweet strawberry in my mouth.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7J9Z3l7lWZ
As the conversation went on around the table about God knows what, I simply had a funny feeling that something might go down today. And I couldn't tell if it was a good thing or not.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡutpHybkT2x
Sorry for the late update on the story guys. Have been busy this past month and now even on holiday, I still couldn't manage to finish this one chapter on time. It shows I won't be able to update my story the way I used to until further notice, but I'll try as best as I can.
470Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTBPUfPklfh
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
