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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoOgQaFk3zR
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZcuHXHdgH9
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOsqMhm9Fgk
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKfy3fnW8B9
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMBaRVtCtMX
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeiujaHkvaA
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTmHtRMnFUA
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4yUZUV0ufC
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrANNbiYPzo
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcfubCZIUrF
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVr2o1BuO7w
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjaHoIUpGLY
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzHa47YnFZu
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9ooTr2Nx3u
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ308uLbCtjJ
"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!
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgFoiNSQGwZ
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3lawJpDQj4
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5p10ecydZ2
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1jFcLe5oNz
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP4mY5NwPea
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYJnBEL26Sp
"Are you sure?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuiJz2VIqSn
"You think I'm lying?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ01UOzCJUEu
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIwsFAG8lGh
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF710NfSlP0
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6yLL6GkMIS
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA4sQDBbe5y
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQFJPpyq6Mk
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkdev9aKr15
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ83A5DzJ4RP
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2zgO7gFQM4
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrBDaa97LWB
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxmXZLMcJm1
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcZdBtOSW4o
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKmevW48TDs
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvkgOZXPApz
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡygPw4Us0Wd
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQebbX9Rt2d
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpJDXFydJv7
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC3b90wxuGB
"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?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe2NkKeCeNA
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFTSX9PjBpj
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjUcQITCpHU
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN2EezcOm0w
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi1HfZMK5Bu
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1771C2TARa
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYV5uG2tBkF
"I know," Mike smirked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGAJuilpwqH
"Sam, do you have a....?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuzNRmRdHYe
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsheWIZiIwB
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWM2QU0eGUD
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcLgiyyxdyu
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG7FMLAgHAD
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?
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYp9xgoNxkv
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoBW0FEGocR
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWpYPouboEv
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMhTa0Wv6IW
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWDhojU8fpI
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBDyxn1aSy2
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCjGageOtCH
"Why me?" I asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdcGI8apkIW
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwb22MYFGvP
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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVgTJ2EFH7Q
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡs5PTcXHu4t
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9AwHO1SiIh
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXbbCGmFRuq
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpsyfccMA9B
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHPrvP4egBv
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ94cikmA4bZ
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡENTPc8EScK
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?
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWvVE7kkSOR
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHt1Xan9VlD
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuMyQRhGwLq
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0rGLMHTMYO
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe87pCybcla
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1YAJr80o7R
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡypTBaw3nUu
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUxfSlgrS2x
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8TiXpfVcrk
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg9KG8qhD1c
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5SaMxlCvf3
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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2YQ4s25trl
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrNV9kAixYY
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2pWxcv4sxQ
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtjHsD6xqln
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbWTA7Jb6f5
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBvoKNkTrMl
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv33Q0B1jOW
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8v7BFk59S8
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDR0ectoXQK
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa5YDBt4DCi
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3ykconm71i
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdYucwFUFgh
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxcoe33BujZ
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXBq0hL3Ije
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ30tHeYCFpR
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6nLRXeocg9
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡm49Gjwhk8H
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLobfEJ65uV
"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?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy9g3GU2C5Z
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjtmjquKoML
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9vAWQKVBqF
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHv5bUXMV4C
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnq8Zf02znC
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8HqU2zI4RR
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKTNVCijtsw
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuXszcpRtjz
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWKk4TRJIeH
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8913KsqwDd
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi3TGKf2Y1p
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfpnbrIWb2M
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrBXEBVmryH
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeyR4mdBb1N
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjs79XRKTRN
"May I ask why?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡogYINesQdB
I looked up at him. "You know why."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPY0SJ5neNa
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw6M8ISgdgH
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7nlNs76Ya4
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOaWYklDuNa
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUPmx4vwqAA
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuyNjdk0P1M
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwhYLqJKiOE
"Ya, it didn't."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwA7QQcdGej
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8MCpGWtETI
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDDtiTQDJSN
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUUu0IeO063
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1NLAMTZMXf
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZQ6ll9jVmI
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhlciDnqd0J
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUZjTseQwRn
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxL9EW6wrN5
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMjdk65WALl
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJcMolbLjG9
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtZsHidc8ri
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3p95veJuvB
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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoZp7e1FTOC
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡphitgoAX6a
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxkQmXCr3yl
"I don't give orders, GD."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBa9r1rr3uU
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkOpwTI80Tb
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVy8UrVp69W
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu61C23w4UY
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd7Yy3FW4am
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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTcj2jiJ2Dm
"So, you forgive me?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeyOgTJM60R
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPm1Ap0sgv4
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgSyhLA46aE
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdJqBppMsNd
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5rNWp6HnDs
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQdjo7kK9CE
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUNcUqbE4RR
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOmLqW3kFVc
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaNCSOdaTDO
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfRnjoNVdn4
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE5PXfqlEKa
"But I don't feel like going."

"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjmNCqax9QJ
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0kZVvVvP9p
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMuCwK3oPcN
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj8kjgaldNh
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqsiySeZgn2
"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?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUJiDZUIiVS
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5L0nQDA0YD
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7qyttMhLkJ
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡam2EITbg1n
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzSweQyK0db
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCmCTULDgEV
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmAOiNAI54V
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIfw0ENwsuP
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqt5Bj0nwO8
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaN0ROIbpv6
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwX5KZ9Tt1g
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡulUiPHGtLD
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI8ohxkLL2I
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsSkIsMiBx6
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9fI9yI1qPX
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡad5ldNMieo
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo0FFBC3UbM
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv3Sb85AUhh
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUjDFwTCR94
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBXRG5jXrQi
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHbrPkueBcE
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT40kcxnFjr
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0LSK4cdtmM
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1S6ucLLfjt
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZlRKxYXMBS
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZiD7Lnwxpw
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyrBdlWFXtV
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx7hhCeUW8B
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkpKHOQITL6
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDM3BFIeLk5
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyrwKuY6Zxv
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0NKFpNLZe0
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6GMlREbLWJ
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqwO7l5fGMe
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmzYajGArZH
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxtHcIla8KN
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFmnIajObOv
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzYjlo0jGAy
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNuUHi2148Y
"What did she send you?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ33yMVCnqVi
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkQ0GczPdUX
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqWVozwJlsT
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQRos7odAnG
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡecgDKhTpEz
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9YYiUrzO5w
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡItNxbon69o
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd8QIiIRJW8
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCw5s2rD56s
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRHlJNrpIrk
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCFtLyH0wiJ
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4DTPfkQ1D2
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDH2fzpD6WV
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEkq6dJ2DUt
"You can go and we'll catch up."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPG1voPtoOy
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB2JPN0L5X2
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnQ5F7KrBAO
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ52MqDwzi3k
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡumfJpl1lvi
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV62zHqrG7C
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxNaBSTKYgG
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOfyGh23JBn
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWiapJROXdW
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ2V5nUyfRw
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDF0mHkJq1X
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ4bnYcMuMF
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKXSPUCbBYh
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwyCBAVoAau
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡabzx7ixS7u
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8zSc3nwxmj
"It's us Seungri," I said.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡso1YwyrAmv
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLATbnacM9a
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkphucRtb1A
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFcO9t0MVDl
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxl1lLc4CGB
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDaXVFEpkzM
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTXRx4qwaZQ
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAilAwz5FeT
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSleGmmZBr9
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRj52ONGvuN
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzMf4uDt7Qb
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsVH7Uqmr5g
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡthmc9MuFwu
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmMfAjvozEz
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpavUQNr6Ud
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJOF6Ri1n1c
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ4LoT6oIVA
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnL69hpPLMd
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsuOah0zsx6
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzOsowv2noF
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBX64URiR1D
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZqxqWAXQfn
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRgdMswTGho
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2C4KxOlJyY
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWQZ7k4A4l2
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMAYlIswxba
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ09efzROp0W
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgZiaotBhoR
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvwIvMLxeTE
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBIdmlbHuGB
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5jHuv4keJ1
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqIVSV9anz6
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpW6pj67KQR
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqtJZPPkdlp
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJHXPeQUE9l
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZXckFdI7YA
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkkgoj40dyN
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbTEkRni7nh
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCtSeWo9APV
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKoC0fpAj7z
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdXFBcjqtRP
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUvJyJVVKCw
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN6hAvN25jQ
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpz8SR4NVkI
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdWEr34UgMD
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡecgxye2moK
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNS4DVMlorZ
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvz5SGyWkDb
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9QD5PB34dx
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBPn0XUJSAZ
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡorz9tSq1lQ
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPJjhRuaGPN
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjkIA82CqhD
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTEqwP2UXVC
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNKzmpAhVPC
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSGwUycYRMj
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnlABiy7SUX
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4e4JidE21p
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPyMXZ3Znv9
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfaKQZKnO4T
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOLgNuJeuFe
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMQGED5JgCy
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPTtNKXQ1iX
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrdRFj4xiWb
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbns6pbxitW
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKJOOrFWAqM
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡliuGlDi2jV
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbCm0u7OmSe
"All except you of course."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzINm3LOYXf
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8GZqsExkDj
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdxdfFgXy23
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUIxhrMlzrg
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv7p4pVvPTJ
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwEao3unihP
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQXwocM7F3G
"Why do you say that?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMCy6bvJzrU
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡojBOuDxIwM
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4K92ORtCgI
"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?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUrdVOq6fVY
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw1OaShNosC
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVyOSomIEfx
It was TOP. And he moved away just in time before I could burn him with the pan.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3cr31uYo5G
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFOxhLmlnqC
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcptD7IYgOx
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDLN0mQzetb
"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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCTqMfaVB4d
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJijoVrikWC
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡba9g5i7RXi
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTeD6s6BDWg
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlIJxUj2b7b
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBwxHgIOGFV
"I was expecting him to."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmnBuL9tWTP
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7BtzYsQNgJ
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr6maQZnxit
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDL7Kw8xLlG
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4yn62Yzav9
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvk7EJZyVv4
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMJHNw0qmsG
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKv7oxS5wKg
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkJXdgSdAfL
"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?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMjaHyd2jS1
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcgBlV2eO18
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh91Ns7jHar
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpKRxsy6ePO
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8kkjpht7az
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡylfIc3IAAV
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdxyQWQmCq7
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJdbfnro2v2
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYsaSzzCcB1
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxzKBMmzFbf
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXKLnbqcrVh
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkyDwQVYYpE
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlT2wGElN8f
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW8S1Lh0ALU
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeg4P4Ds7Ty
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDpUrjODqxo
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk9MTEGK8yq
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIOFv328ez1
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxn1nX0RzrB
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoYxslbCB9h
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO3M09QuVG2
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEysKctPPVx
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQQ5NdDSsx3
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx83Qn0yULN
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOjE7GQe1Xv
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9AoXGlk5DU
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEJQRbNvZAQ
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3GCNpvH93P
"Sure," I said.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnS8IqYQ399
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYw6kHmByb9
"Huh?" I blushed.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5UbX0WgyQE
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtAVkbGj2ji
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrTnJBexUMT
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9SIHWGeyfn
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH0AXGWhu9E
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjtYH4v6PQb
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQD832UqNaq
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI1NE1dv6ki
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTz18djyasV
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpVQkpUXXVt
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKtqKiyOs3u
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ51tBd2ZlAP
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRlRjTnCINx
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEO5RgSszzj
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM75fpAioXC
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNxnNbOZF1Y
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4O2JneHI38
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡm4DwECw2eu
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXZAJ52C5MT
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHtijdNpXuT
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZCLFx2Wkun
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ09xpZ2UGff
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsQCoFnVyPb
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh8YmtM2uec
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRtvHLIhKyu
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHaOJ5rdvHU
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6noRkdcjC2
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ84j3RMPTTu
"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."
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC1uAVEKEuz
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaR5aj3YKhj
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgBcDKcewSt
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdIN6q6MUVr
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvicvRNu21i
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGHbxzh3VS8
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.
429Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIDM7VmZwN3
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
