"Can you please stop tapping your fingers and try to relax?" Taeyang asked. "When you look like that, you make me worry."

"Sorry," I said as I lifted my fingers away from the dashboard of the car and leaned back in my seat, trying to relax.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ04Lcfbosfb
"What's gotten into you?" Taeyang managed to look at me even when he had to focus on the road.

"You don't have a high fever, do you?" Christine who sat in the back seat asked. She leaned closer to place her hand on my forehead.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlWSKRpwOc2
"No, no, I don't," I said as I waved her hand away and looked out the car window at God knows what.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtppmyOXdxM
"You look nervous and excited at the same time that I can't really tell the difference," said Taeyang. "Are you sure you're okay?"
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCVIPtyZCwK
"Are you worried that Zoey and G-Dragon will get into some kind of trouble?" Christine also asked.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcV8upidhwU
"No, I'm not thinking about that," I said as I looked up at the rearview mirror to look at Christine.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1GfiNohSmM
"Then what's wrong with you? Taeyang's right. You look nervous yet excited."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡReHwdMRRMp
"I don't know to be honest," I said as I scratched my head. "Do I look like a lunatic?"
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2xc01KF4vW
"If that how you're going to put it, then yes." Christine started to snicker.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqXXhOK5VJ6
"No, you don't," said Taeyang as he threw a look at Christine.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJHDjOLRxkz
"I don't know, I feel really anxious," I said.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ85ZyNFXYWT
"Are you sure you aren't worried about Zoey and G-Dragon?" Christine asked.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNtZVWF49Da
"Why do you keep insisting on that?" I had my eyebrow raised, staring at the rearview mirror.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0wteSHGufA
"Well, because you didn't want them to go out shopping, remember?"
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnvrMxA43Eu
"Ya, I know. But that's the least of my worries. They can do whatever they want."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGhsoISUOVA
"Okay," said Christine as she leaned back in her seat. "I sure hope so."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVLQ8YKOv7i
"I know so. I don't know why I feel like this. Like something's going to happen."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVccPwpHykI
I continued to look out the window as I heard Christine at the back unfolding a piece of paper. She was obviously looking at the grocery list we had made.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpL8Jdg6OrG
"We're going to have a lovely supper tonight," said Christine. "Sam, did you manage to tell Collins that we won't be back early?"
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqZGIDDvbpN
"Oh, ya, I totally forgot," I said as I took my phone out of my pocket. "Thanks for reminding me, Christine."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5UzS2iaPsu
I called Collins and he wasn't picking up. I figured he might be busy so I left him a text message instead. I made sure to leave one for Lee too.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3a2etdQwcO
"Just texted him, he isn't picking up," I said.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl4sIYNrUZh
"As long as he doesn't get mad," said Taeyang.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡndUwu6xkXc
"Ha!" said Christine. "I just don't understand our managers sometimes. We always have to tell them we're here and we're there. It's like they have to keep tabs on us all the time."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ8SVeXBGUG
"That's just how it is, especially with you guys," said Taeyang.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgSNt2FRnDP
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsjN7Zp7jGT
We soon found ourselves in the parking lot of a grocery store and we got out of the car. When we entered the store, all eyes were on us as Christine got the shopping cart. Together with Taeyang we went around putting whatever was on the list in the shopping cart. I pretended not to notice the people around staring as they walked by.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHBwbGdtEdw
We were in the vegetable aisle and I was putting in carrots and lettuce in the cart when Taeyang told us to stay right where we were and that he would be right back. He walked down the aisle and disappeared round the corner.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlWQhviucxN
"I can't wait to make kimchi," said Christine. "I have to admit, trying out something new is exciting."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡix4vzSKnVH
"Mmm, I can't wait too," I said as I got another packet of carrots and putting it in the cart. "Speaking of which, I think I'll need some strawberries."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgGt8HjDw6H
"Really, Sam? What for?"
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo2qM37y4vf
"To eat of course."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ61MZRqHXN5
"Once you start to eat them, you never stop."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZYjciPQrHX
"True. But at least that only lasts for a day."
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoQfZsVNQHA
"Typical." Christine rolled her eyes at me and her eyes landed to the other aisle further away from us where the fruits were.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPGaSKj8ipg
"There they are," she said. "You can go get them and I'll wait here."

I walked over to the fruit stand surpassing large refrigerators that contained cold meat, fish and even frozen ice cream. I noticed all eyes on me as I walked by. Being a celebrity can really feel weird sometimes especially when the whole world knows you.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyvtu6EpdYY
As I approached the fruit stand, I couldn't help but lick my lips as I saw the lovely juicy strawberries. I hope nobody saw me do that. That would be embarrassing.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGE1oCLz1sL
The strawberries were packed in plastic lunchboxes. Below where the strawberries were were oranges all stacked together. I felt like opening a lunchbox and eating a strawberry, but I had to keep my craving under control.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbc8wvgyntM
As I stretched out to get the strawberries, someone appeared right beside me looking at the fruits. I didn't turn in the person's direction because I turned the other way to start heading back to where Christine stood waiting for me. As I turned, I knocked over an orange from the stand with my other free hand and it fell to the floor.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY6CS20kONO
"Oh, goodness," I muttered as I turned to look at the orange.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOOikBNUJGG
Just as I was about to bend over to pick the fruit up, the person beside me had also bent over to pick it. And then.....
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPLNznqJDOV

493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPwj36zIELD
We'd bumped heads. And it hurt a lot. We both straightened up holding our heads.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZLbJF2rhnm
As we stared at each other, I couldn't help but smile. I could tell he was smiling back at me even if he wore a face mask on. As I stared back at him, I couldn't help but feel like he seemed familiar.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDcxtRTt9Qq
His blonde hair fell close to his beautiful eyes and I couldn't help but look at him and he couldn't stop looking back at me. I noticed his pupils dilate. He looked surprised to see me. Where have I seen those eyes before?

I almost jumped in fright by the sound of Christine's voice. I turned to her direction and she was right where I had left her. Taeyang was standing right beside her and she beckoned with her hand telling me to come back.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqhtbNelt8U
I nodded my head at her telling her that I would be right there. I went back to looking at the person before me. I couldn't help but feel that I knew who the person was but I couldn't figure out who. I yearned to know because right now, my heart was racing. I felt so excited, yet so nervous. I had to know who this person is. If I walk away now, this moment will be burned in my memory and I would be haunted forever just at the thought of his beautiful eyes.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL1bfd0XDuG
I bent over to pick up the orange and I could tell his eyes still remained fixed on me. I felt like he was watching my every move. When I straightened up and put the orange back on the stand, I went back to looking at him.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7E67sVbhNY
"Mianhae (미안해) (Sorry)," I apologised, my eyes never leaving his.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8s1RcLjiSg
I couldn't help it, I just had to know who he is. But I was running out of time. What was I going to do now?
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUMK2N6c0Hf
"Sam? Black Kitty? Right?" he asked.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWKrrLkGkR7
My heart skipped a beat. Even his voice sounded familiar and I felt like singing "Hallelujah!" out loud. For whatever reason, only God knows. Not only did he look surprised, he sounded surprised too. That voice. I just couldn't recall where I have heard it from.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt27LNvICDk
"Yes," I said, trying to figure out what else to say next. "That's me. And...who might you be?"
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsAfrmX5s3O
He didn't hesitate to take his mask off and everything happened so suddenly. As he was removing his mask, a group of guys came round the corner entering the fruit aisle behind him. Everything then went in slow motion and as soon as the mask fell away from his face, I gasped.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB5p6WufdgX
Jimin stood right in front of me looking as surprised as ever and the rest of BTS had come around the corner behind him. When they saw me, they all paused. Now I was even more nervous and excited than ever before.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFlzKNeVnmD
"J....Jimin?" I looked behind him. "B...BTS?" Now I was the one who was asking.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxzAwWvcVed
"Aigoo! Is that BK? Like 'The Black Kitty?'" RM asked with a surprised look on his face.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFycKn86vUS
Right now, I felt like I was about to faint. I had just bumped heads with Jimin and the rest of BTS just showed up out of the blue. I couldn't even think right at the moment. This was probably the weird yet best day of my life.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4HjRWMKwCT
I couldn't help my excitement as I tried to say something but I was completely lost for words. The rest of BTS couldn't say a word either as we all looked at each other wondering what to do or say next. This was a lot to take in.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnfHt2o6njr
It was until a scream broke out and echoed throughout the store that we were woken up from our little shock. And it was pretty obvious who could be screaming like a crazy lunatic.
493Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi2oLcrANQY
"OMG! It's BTS!" Christine exclaimed.ns22.214.171.124da2
