The water felt like a safe haven for me and I didn't want to get out.49Please respect copyright.PENANAHFV2NRMG9h
For some reason, it felt so warm and nice. I didn't want to go above 49Please respect copyright.PENANASvAhV6Znkd
the surface and face all the troubles out there. But I couldn't stay 49Please respect copyright.PENANAX3cXaTXWlI
under the water forever. That was obvious. I didn't want to die in here 49Please respect copyright.PENANA12nW5bORRY
and sooner or later, I had to breathe. copyright protection45PENANA042Y3RzPik49Please respect copyright.PENANA9JtJ1pQ0Ma

I pushed myself upwards and my head stuck out of the water's surface.49Please respect copyright.PENANAdKdpHojFlE
I took in a deep breath of fresh air and I shook my head to shake off 49Please respect copyright.PENANAnmHKjNV8FN
the water out of my eyes. I opened my eyes fully and as I looked around 49Please respect copyright.PENANA6OwAxyZnzM
the pool, I swam to the edge.copyright protection45PENANAmsN8ZGHqtQ49Please respect copyright.PENANAyMxMcfbwUw

When I finally got myself out, I saw Hyo-rin, Seungri and TOP run towards me. Taeyang and Daesung also appeared.copyright protection45PENANAhjr461p4Qz49Please respect copyright.PENANAbhTS2cGYll

"Sam, are you okay?" Hyo-rin asked, when she got closer.copyright protection45PENANA3RE5PIWpxf49Please respect copyright.PENANALrai1IR16q

"I've never been better," I answered as I looked at myself.copyright protection45PENANAJUHx2HdK8H49Please respect copyright.PENANAOFdlrpADWu

I looked ridiculously wet, that's for sure. My clothes felt so heavy 49Please respect copyright.PENANAa7M30PgGOB
and wet, I felt like a dripping burrito. I pulled out my phone from the 49Please respect copyright.PENANA2A3cS5VK61
pocket and it was all wet and ruined. I sucked my teeth in irritation. 49Please respect copyright.PENANAaUGng8NQLJ
So much for having a cool fancy Apple phone not only to find it taking a49Please respect copyright.PENANAlVQ8ZQXfxM
dive with you into the water. I put my phone back in my wet pocket. My 49Please respect copyright.PENANARzmUMf0IZ6
day couldn't get any better than this.copyright protection45PENANAAp12t73TcU49Please respect copyright.PENANAJ91qxhyk8k

I looked around me and luckily, the little drama I had had with 49Please respect copyright.PENANA3tgUBfLzvi
G-Dragon at the top of the rocks, hadn't caught so many people's 49Please respect copyright.PENANAlmSIhFXhnW
attention, but only to a few of those who were in the same pool I had 49Please respect copyright.PENANAo66qwDH5XQ
fallen in. That was a relief. The last thing I wanted was to look 49Please respect copyright.PENANAp1jFVVVGuq
embarrassed in front of the whole world.copyright protection45PENANAsfM7lBQi0o49Please respect copyright.PENANAZQNRy4xwmU

"You need a towel," said TOP. "You're soaking wet, and you need a change of clothes too."copyright protection45PENANAxKifhkWv4449Please respect copyright.PENANAsK1yaycSD9

"No need," I said as I started to remove my wet sneakers and water poured out of them. "We've to go."copyright protection45PENANAdFteIXmMQy49Please respect copyright.PENANAI3a2J6YENs

I heard Zoey and the others' laughter and cheering on the other side 49Please respect copyright.PENANA5MjSESXboj
of the pool. I looked on and I saw the others approach G-Dragon after he49Please respect copyright.PENANA5Q46pfEB8i
climbed down the rocks. They surrounded and cheered for him as though 49Please respect copyright.PENANALRmWT52RJP
he was a hero. copyright protection45PENANAGjOtra5hs549Please respect copyright.PENANAkOCEHgwErU

"Sam?" I heard Taeyang's voice as he held my shoulder. "You don't 49Please respect copyright.PENANAYwL2DbhiNp
look okay at all. And you really need a change of clothes or else you're49Please respect copyright.PENANAByhXva2y2M
going to catch a cold."copyright protection45PENANAF0QXf8icDn49Please respect copyright.PENANAonB01igxXI

"I already told you, I'm fine," I said as I slowly brushed off 49Please respect copyright.PENANAsVeeXSpfac
Taeyang's hand from my shoulder. I didn't want to be rude, but I was so 49Please respect copyright.PENANAFLLWIh7LPa
not in the mood for consolation from anyone.copyright protection45PENANAgR3K5LHsxy49Please respect copyright.PENANAxdx8eyqu6n

I made my way towards GD and the others, while they were chattering 49Please respect copyright.PENANAcyjrMgkcwv
on with excitement over what had happened.  Hyo-rin and the rest 49Please respect copyright.PENANApbha8ZsfLh
followed behind me. As the Toxins and G-Dragon saw me approach them, 49Please respect copyright.PENANApiuXqIvRdC
Zoey came forward.copyright protection45PENANA1eSQHj0MAt49Please respect copyright.PENANAfqbySYPdal

"Oh, man, Sam," said Zoey, with a ridiculous smile on her face. "You 49Please respect copyright.PENANAIAxZLFZdVK
should really see yourself. Sorry for all that, but we had to add a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAul2ZitIOlW
little spice to the game. Hope you don't mind."copyright protection45PENANASgtIdJQwVu49Please respect copyright.PENANArBnC9fBZsM

"Can we just go back to YG?" I asked, with no hint of emotion on my face. "I've had a long day."copyright protection45PENANATblWWrHDTf49Please respect copyright.PENANAlamSa7y9kt

"Go back to YG?" Zoey asked with a surprised look on her face. "I thought we were going back to the hotel."copyright protection45PENANAcVt4LaoMXZ49Please respect copyright.PENANATPPWO7pxWK

"I told you, our managers need us back there. And as usual, you never49Please respect copyright.PENANAtnlQ0v6Bvz
listen to me." I rolled my eyes as I soon remembered something. 49Please respect copyright.PENANAnQKJIUQh3b
"Speaking of our managers, Daesung, may I please use your phone?" I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAKX0ATPIinE
looked over at Daesung.copyright protection45PENANAfPfJysspZn49Please respect copyright.PENANA3R2pH2VODq

"Ya, sure," said Daesung, as he gave it to me.copyright protection45PENANATSzfPvGx9A49Please respect copyright.PENANAo0g8KZ3Bg6

I dialled Lee's number and I placed the phone to my ear. The Toxins 49Please respect copyright.PENANAM13NBXDjf0
and G-Dragon looked on at me, clueless. They were obviously wondering 49Please respect copyright.PENANAYjR0Jz2EnG
why I was making a call. They would know soon enough.copyright protection45PENANAMlwfqhqP3n49Please respect copyright.PENANA5LGlUqlX1B

"Hello?" came Lee's voice at the other end of the line.copyright protection45PENANAOjd32Mwubv49Please respect copyright.PENANA4OC8Bd5exl

"Lee, it's Sam," I answered.copyright protection45PENANAR5oqkdW1K549Please respect copyright.PENANAfvF6voFy33

"Sam, thank goodness, you called. Did you find them?"copyright protection45PENANACwq8MRqcGu49Please respect copyright.PENANAe8PVuJmPHo

"Ya, I found them," I said, as I looked on at the others. "Do our managers know anything?"copyright protection45PENANAAuNOyPA5jM49Please respect copyright.PENANAqLc2TOgZ3O

"No, not yet. But you better get back here quick. I can't keep them 49Please respect copyright.PENANAkijZoPo4or
locked up much longer. And the press have been waiting for you, so you 49Please respect copyright.PENANA7CzWx3GUSn
better hurry."copyright protection45PENANAAbRYCcbyeW49Please respect copyright.PENANAij9vl3jC2m

"We'll be there in thirty minutes."copyright protection45PENANADRs4ZeWqrC49Please respect copyright.PENANAqmFKm3AK8Y

"Okay, I'll be waiting."copyright protection45PENANAU27HQGxqLR49Please respect copyright.PENANAcfBLc8PT3I

I cut the call and gave Daesung his phone back.copyright protection45PENANAcl24kFhwev49Please respect copyright.PENANAhl1qQntaZv

"Wait, Sam, what's going on?" Daniel asked. "Why were you talking to Lee? Is something wrong?"copyright protection45PENANAsRmVWmaSNB49Please respect copyright.PENANAwqSbaffLZn

"Everything is wrong," I answered, trying to keep my cool. "I'll tell you later. We better go now."copyright protection45PENANAvHDDptjWU449Please respect copyright.PENANAJcDkXQtNJw

"At least tell us what's going on," said Christine. copyright protection45PENANAN7qQcLvthJ49Please respect copyright.PENANAv0SwqIUUST

"It's best if we get to YG first," said Seungri. "We're wasting a lot of time here."copyright protection45PENANAYKBlGyIQrv49Please respect copyright.PENANAppkiBvxRgx

"Come on, you heard Seungri, we don't have much time," I said.copyright protection45PENANArWc5ABzTyu49Please respect copyright.PENANAeZJSkHINur

"But you better change your clothes first, Sam," said Zoey. "You know49Please respect copyright.PENANAk0scxTVrNN
you easily catch a cold. At least get a towel to dry yourself."copyright protection45PENANAYlBocNaHhr49Please respect copyright.PENANAkddFwOa3Fr

I shook my head. I was really on the edge of losing my temper. But I 49Please respect copyright.PENANABUrkML1vzw
quickly took in a deep breath and started to walk away from the pool in 49Please respect copyright.PENANAXTwp63i1u6
my bare feet and carrying my wet sneakers, without saying a word.copyright protection45PENANArfc2BSBjI249Please respect copyright.PENANAPPk2vQQFTw

After walking a few feet away, I looked behind me and the others just49Please respect copyright.PENANA6uqxPdjRIS
stared at me, with surprised and confused looks on their faces. The 49Please respect copyright.PENANAoFMU4TYnUt
last thing I wanted was for them to just stand there because they would 49Please respect copyright.PENANAuJjOLOECuy
end up grabbing other people's attention which I was highly trying to 49Please respect copyright.PENANA8B3z9SMsKu
avoid.copyright protection45PENANAOaZ1gzDPtb49Please respect copyright.PENANAl8a73f01CV

"Aren't you coming or are you going to run off so that I go looking for you again?" I asked.copyright protection45PENANAkrxVQJJ0r049Please respect copyright.PENANAv6FOVqDz37

No one answered me as they all started walking towards me and walked 49Please respect copyright.PENANA7cIbLR4ykO
past heading for the exit. I stayed for a few minutes from where I stood49Please respect copyright.PENANA2FWdNZsN14
as I watched them go, except for TOP, who came to stand beside me.copyright protection45PENANAsTgFWRxxbg49Please respect copyright.PENANAJwbol6PYGS

"Don't say a word, please," I said as I turned to look at him.copyright protection45PENANAz0qz1H8FwC49Please respect copyright.PENANA5O5OZQG3o0

"I wasn't going to say anything, apparently," said TOP. "I know 49Please respect copyright.PENANARrGOEtO7gQ
you're angry and the last thing you would want to hear from me is 49Please respect copyright.PENANAb0mnoIudGa
advice."copyright protection45PENANARQ4pMV9wWA49Please respect copyright.PENANA6MYbBX1h1q

I turned to look the other way as I now felt a little guilty. copyright protection45PENANAwptN4pFBXQ49Please respect copyright.PENANAiTSYIwrwDI

"Was I harsh on them?" I asked, quietly.copyright protection45PENANASxRj6T0fyx49Please respect copyright.PENANAmPIJd7sHk8

"To be honest, you did the best you could not to let your anger get the better of you."copyright protection45PENANARqnWPaRYGN49Please respect copyright.PENANARrVQCwOEOP

"I'm still upset, though."copyright protection45PENANAzdc31gtGSq49Please respect copyright.PENANA47IW5qtxX7

"And that's normal. They will understand. You're human too."copyright protection45PENANAxLXp43i4iR49Please respect copyright.PENANAgkXY4a5wSq

"Thanks, TOP." I said, trying to put up a smile. "Sorry for being harsh on you earlier."copyright protection45PENANABahZ66aY5R49Please respect copyright.PENANAEKRAAu6o8V

"It's okay. You guys go on ahead. I'll go get changed and follow later on."copyright protection45PENANALE5YI6fbN849Please respect copyright.PENANAed2Xa8nDFl

I gave TOP an assuring nod and he gave me a pat on my shoulder and 49Please respect copyright.PENANALWFIVJT1gL
walked away. I was on my way again and I found myself outside the indoor49Please respect copyright.PENANArVvjv6NCvV
water park. I saw the others ahead of me and I kept my distance. I was 49Please respect copyright.PENANAxJ9AHjI4Wo
still soaking wet and I started to shiver. It was now afternoon but the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAqIk6qfPkg6
sun still didn't seem to make me warm as I expected it to. It was hot, 49Please respect copyright.PENANA5I1B1wIP8e
yes, but I still felt cold because of my dripping clothes.copyright protection45PENANABlTzKXC32V49Please respect copyright.PENANALFXUfFdYJa

We all found ourselves back at the back gate of the water park. I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAmaSHgjX6Dd
found G-Dragon and the Toxins all settled up in G-Dragon's car. Daesung,49Please respect copyright.PENANAcJWdlYJ4NS
Seungri, Hyo-rin and Taeyang were waiting for me. copyright protection45PENANAUD6bDdiNbn49Please respect copyright.PENANAiyygtNVGMF

"Hey, Sam, you don't mind if I ride along with you, Daesung and 49Please respect copyright.PENANAR9PKQ63NcH
Seungri, do you?" Hyo-rin asked as she approached me to keep the others 49Please respect copyright.PENANA1orXCNVmRJ
out of ear shot.copyright protection45PENANAEW2JVKQaVD49Please respect copyright.PENANAeaiMqLAmsm

"I'll ride with Tae," I said, giving Hyo-rin a small smile. "Don't worry about it."copyright protection45PENANAixZb6J9JMb49Please respect copyright.PENANA1jvR3mX7aa

Hyo-rin gave me a kind smile and I looked on as she settled in with 49Please respect copyright.PENANAPbzg9b35xV
Daesung and Seungri in the car. G-Dragon's car took off first, then 49Please respect copyright.PENANAOM56ywS8Sk
Daesung's. I continued to watch on as the two cars left the premises and49Please respect copyright.PENANAvUD0MHnKPx
all I did was stand in the sun, trying to take in the warmth, but still49Please respect copyright.PENANAUEItUSFYXd
shivering as hell.copyright protection45PENANAFHPLSsYbg949Please respect copyright.PENANAUMZ0TxxLGq

I had my eyes closed when I felt something warm on my shoulders. I 49Please respect copyright.PENANA5bkJc7rzRg
opened my eyes and I found Taeyang wrap his warm coat around me.copyright protection45PENANAzU6BE1muci49Please respect copyright.PENANA6MUPgPIVOG

"You're really shivering," said Taeyang. "Let's hope you don't get-"copyright protection45PENANA8uQ7GXRQGE49Please respect copyright.PENANA8Is7JmFg7l

Before he could finish his sentence, I sneezed.copyright protection45PENANA1mlQ7ej6pz49Please respect copyright.PENANAGdx1XJ8pj0

"-a cold," said Taeyang, rolling his eyes at me. "Nice one, Sam. Now our managers will get pissed for sure."copyright protection45PENANAgYunA8pXDB49Please respect copyright.PENANAFqMAg2pYYd

"Don't worry, it's just a small sneeze," I said. "I'll be fine by tomorrow."copyright protection45PENANAfM65UN2LDJ49Please respect copyright.PENANAE7W7fFuUWC

"Let's hope so. Come on, we better get going."copyright protection45PENANApE5LvdZOjo49Please respect copyright.PENANAgCQNDNxMcQ

Taeyang led me to his car and he helped me climb into the passenger's49Please respect copyright.PENANAMShzsxCSvB
seat. We were on the road in no time, and as I sat in the car, I still 49Please respect copyright.PENANA6aI2iXIMSE
felt cold that Taeyang had to turn the heater on.copyright protection45PENANAoAnSXY1mVF49Please respect copyright.PENANAo8heWU2tHf

In about thirty minutes, we were back in Seoul and back at the YG 49Please respect copyright.PENANAku8B4A9GtE
premises. I found the others all waiting for us at the front entrance of49Please respect copyright.PENANAhzPZC8XlUP
the building. When Taeyang and I got out of the car and walked up to 49Please respect copyright.PENANAZjXgyUbBnT
them, I led them in, still barefoot and surprisingly at the same time, 49Please respect copyright.PENANAQInYkrzt82
Collins, Yang Hyun-suk and Lee appeared out of the elevator.copyright protection45PENANAYbr4hlSk7v49Please respect copyright.PENANA8qCYqe6nz1

"Where have you guys been?" Collins asked, as they approached us. "And why do you look so wet, Sam?"copyright protection45PENANA3xa9jFmiuG49Please respect copyright.PENANAczlaQT42vs

"We went to Caribbean Bay," I answered.copyright protection45PENANAHSg5Le3MBZ49Please respect copyright.PENANAVlbjkvLUZT

Lee who was behind Collins gave me a funny startled look. She 49Please respect copyright.PENANAX7kz5KNc7n
probably thought I was going to make up some kind of a lie to cover up 49Please respect copyright.PENANAdkWyvNsAPX
for the others. But I had other things in mind.copyright protection45PENANArAaTFrfxMm49Please respect copyright.PENANA3Kjf3EKPyK

"Caribbean Bay?" Yang Hyun-suk looked surprised. "We had things to sort out here and you went to have fun?"copyright protection45PENANA2PUcZdSlwm49Please respect copyright.PENANAIvR24XNS9V

Yang Hyun-suk sounded a little harsh and the rest of us were quiet. I49Please respect copyright.PENANAgmgdVL0nmP
could feel the atmosphere behind me grow tense as no one said a word.copyright protection45PENANA1dfij0xmM849Please respect copyright.PENANAkqAEFEiqtQ

"Well, is no one going to say anything?" Yang Hyun-suk asked.copyright protection45PENANAmeIw7oYmVK49Please respect copyright.PENANAacm1fqY2j7

"We didn't just go there to have fun," I said, with my head down. "If there's anyone to blame for all this, it's me."copyright protection45PENANAJXAEazS2Vo49Please respect copyright.PENANAXAueNp0NNm

There was an awkward silence as I felt all eyes on me. Their eyes 49Please respect copyright.PENANAD7NdLsS4Sl
felt like piercing needles, but I had to ignore the feeling and carry 49Please respect copyright.PENANAU2xg4MH2P1
on.copyright protection45PENANApXCEgVFNis49Please respect copyright.PENANAaMBF0o51cS

"What do you mean, Sam?" Collins asked.copyright protection45PENANAWEGFbO39aY49Please respect copyright.PENANAnQZa4LDWQv

"Well, I hear the press are here," said Sam. "And I bet they here 49Please respect copyright.PENANAhKyP1CBJFq
over the video of G-Dragon and I. I'll tell you everything from there."copyright protection45PENANAUUWvy65q9049Please respect copyright.PENANAKPdmveLAfX

"That won't be necessary," said Yang Hyun-suk. "We can do all of that49Please respect copyright.PENANAsDOsOSerO4
tomorrow or some other day. You look all beat and I don't think it will49Please respect copyright.PENANAX6PvVR7xAM
be appropriate to go to the press looking all wet."copyright protection45PENANAPyXrddmS1E49Please respect copyright.PENANAYlCbH7qsIF

I breathed out a sigh of relief. Things were simply going the way I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAqajeD77RzW
thought they would. I just hoped that what I was going to do next would 49Please respect copyright.PENANAWw2L2YC9vd
work out.copyright protection45PENANAkXj1CuPGE049Please respect copyright.PENANAWuyyFfG5Ip

"In the meantime, you go to the hotel and get freshened up," said 49Please respect copyright.PENANAL8z4ndcu4M
Collins. "We will talk later on in the evening and you will tell us all 49Please respect copyright.PENANAq1itMlspuY
about it."copyright protection45PENANAEzUA4tH9UQ49Please respect copyright.PENANACqsaZ8qGd8

I nodded my head in agreement. Well that was a relief. I seriously needed a change of clothes as I shivered vigorously.copyright protection45PENANAaJp8bClyvn49Please respect copyright.PENANA5ZhF4FSg9X

"Come, I'll drive you to the hotel," said Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANAdQkwRX0HEE49Please respect copyright.PENANA2AYl4LGxab

"Alright," I said quietly, as I looked up at Lee. She seemed really 49Please respect copyright.PENANAvNCXYC5pij
frightened. The last thing she wanted was for all of us to get into 49Please respect copyright.PENANAyojP3nuVEE
trouble and it seems like I was only making things worse.copyright protection45PENANAHidCTi6Bs149Please respect copyright.PENANATHfR3kCKRN

Before I turned to leave with the rest of the group, I gave Lee a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAVmBykzaqYs
wink, assuring her that everything was going to be alright and that she 49Please respect copyright.PENANAKwR3mUrRQ5
should trust me on this one.copyright protection45PENANArCLRKWt6uZ49Please respect copyright.PENANAwJNMBQ6eAY

I sat on the couch all wrapped up in a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAGRHxU4slWi
blanket, coughing and sniffing like crazy as I continued staring at the 49Please respect copyright.PENANArs2efD4mRF
TV. I was watching a K-drama series, "Boys over flowers" and I really 49Please respect copyright.PENANAkTaFwelIss
enjoyed it, despite being down with a cold. copyright protection45PENANAT6J7JDpPeR49Please respect copyright.PENANAT9jBHdG9zC

I had a box of paper tissues right beside me49Please respect copyright.PENANAs15ugk8lHZ
and a plastic containing the ones I had blown my nose on on my other 49Please respect copyright.PENANA01TbHpp28S
side. Disgusting, I know, but hey, it was only a cold and there was 49Please respect copyright.PENANAv22ODJ2kTC
nothing I could do about it.copyright protection45PENANAQGuBxey1l249Please respect copyright.PENANAXmD2RTnZe5

I continued watching my series when a waiter49Please respect copyright.PENANAZe6SqNiQQq
came in to bring in my warm chicken soup and announced that Taeyang had49Please respect copyright.PENANAImsLa6ucqo
come to see me.copyright protection45PENANA0PKPDYxqdV49Please respect copyright.PENANAOnLsqCmOCA

"Hey, how are you doing?" Taeyang asked after the waiter had gave me the soup and left while Taeyang came in.copyright protection45PENANAQ61AdLdDAs49Please respect copyright.PENANATCP0vgON6F

"Never better," I said, sounding funny with a49Please respect copyright.PENANAdO1FzbM4oc
blocked nose. "Take a seat, please. Not too close to me though, I don't49Please respect copyright.PENANAtcAfF1S1Qu
want you to catch my cold."copyright protection45PENANAur8Y3GdCIy49Please respect copyright.PENANACK7sKCIzpO

"I wasn't even going to try," Taeyang took a couch right next to mine, but far away from me as possible.copyright protection45PENANAFInpy1o5rB49Please respect copyright.PENANAeDCfjcr5hP

"So, watching k-drama, huh?" Taeyang asked as he looked at the flat screen TV.copyright protection45PENANA1iI3SWO6zp49Please respect copyright.PENANAiL2T0HUSIK

"Ya, I'm actually enjoying it," I said as I put in a spoonful of chicken soup in my mouth. Mmm, it was so tasty.copyright protection45PENANAy4RH3Ungw649Please respect copyright.PENANAnlvuNf6vOw

"And the others?" copyright protection45PENANAPbPdBne0tG49Please respect copyright.PENANAj29Wis9Jxr

When Taeyang meant the "others", I knew he was talking about The Toxins. I just rolled my eyes and continued staring at the TV.copyright protection45PENANACvZkyRhmYQ49Please respect copyright.PENANAzQcBJciD41

"As usual, they went for practise two hours ago," I answered, not sounding like I cared.copyright protection45PENANAMwVDeYyCf549Please respect copyright.PENANAornTVa92GY

"Are you still mad at them?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection45PENANAI5gxiSVxSp49Please respect copyright.PENANAy01HXja63I

I got the remote and paused the TV. I couldn't catch up with reading the subtitles and Taeyang's question just confused me.copyright protection45PENANAdvUcPt47P249Please respect copyright.PENANAxCyKdhWwV0

"I don't know," I said, staring at my soup.copyright protection45PENANAYCzTfNSNp749Please respect copyright.PENANAyksVeo6nqM

"You don't know or you are?"copyright protection45PENANAS8c9Fv2A2V49Please respect copyright.PENANAmZMnGKHQQK

I shrugged my shoulders. To be completely 49Please respect copyright.PENANAyon78Bp57k
honest, I was still mad, but then I again, I felt like I wasn't and that49Please respect copyright.PENANA6GFyCTXIhn
felt confusing.copyright protection45PENANAZgqUtgnxnd49Please respect copyright.PENANAvDni132IUT

"I don't know, Tae," I answered. "I'm still 49Please respect copyright.PENANAttiQArrZwz
upset with all of them, but another part of me is telling me that I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAkCfZbRT8Aa
won't stay that way for long and I should just try to forget all that 49Please respect copyright.PENANAw6OToPXryR
happened yesterday."copyright protection45PENANAAlPaf4Y7So49Please respect copyright.PENANAk1lCRW3iVA

"Ya, I understand. They never listened to 49Please respect copyright.PENANARgc7goZ9wA

the blame because you know how angry our managers were going to get."copyright protection45PENANAeLwrUcWWMY49Please respect copyright.PENANAMQy7tp3xIZ

I looked on at Taeyang as I sniffed. He was 49Please respect copyright.PENANA7zgkHwIGGf
right. Yesterday was tough, and coming up with a plan to prevent the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAg1iXaf2a9y
others from getting into more trouble was even tougher when you know you49Please respect copyright.PENANAHWof4SF7pn

tough as nails.copyright protection45PENANASMfiHIy4gW49Please respect copyright.PENANAOCC7zNmCXw

Last night, I took the blame and told our 49Please respect copyright.PENANAaFszVwrAER
two managers that I was the one who decided that we should all go out 49Please respect copyright.PENANAYMoVafA4PW
and the others had nothing to do with it. I told them that the others 49Please respect copyright.PENANAGEzjL967L4
had insisted on working on the song, but I was the one who objected and 49Please respect copyright.PENANAEVK6uFDWgi
made everyone do whatever they wanted. copyright protection45PENANAiRh71wc0E549Please respect copyright.PENANANe4cafrLjh

Apparently, the managers weren't that mad at49Please respect copyright.PENANAH0VgjGpqNa
me at all. If I hadn't lied on that part, they would've been way mad at49Please respect copyright.PENANAur6fyAUcxa
the others instead. They were glad I had bought these guys back on time49Please respect copyright.PENANAvkpzwzPYk8
without creating much of a scene on social media. Luckily, only a few 49Please respect copyright.PENANAf29bisRISF
people had taken pictures of us. Most people on social media were even 49Please respect copyright.PENANATn7ZCFAwS7
surprised that Big Bang and The Toxins were at Caribbean Bay. Well, at 49Please respect copyright.PENANAHns7XZGMY1

much attention from our fans, the paparazzi and the reporters.copyright protection45PENANApSQVkL7gIU49Please respect copyright.PENANAVYM2XpIxWB

After my confrontation with our managers, I went straight to bed 49Please respect copyright.PENANAFDY8KW7rJ5
without talking to anyone and I didn't have supper. One, I was totally 49Please respect copyright.PENANAsEjvJISgYW
beat from all that had happened, and two, I just didn't feel like 49Please respect copyright.PENANAGUUtXSSFqO
talking to anyone.copyright protection45PENANAfAHvSodrtt49Please respect copyright.PENANAg5sfddclFV

"Huh, I guess am still upset," I said, as I took in another spoon of soup into my mouth. "Especially after what GD did to me."copyright protection45PENANAnLlFTnc5nQ49Please respect copyright.PENANAq7AKDktvAr

"Ya, what happened was kind of dramatic," said Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANAbMJ1I3MQku49Please respect copyright.PENANAshmnKjfDZG

"You saw that?" I looked surprised. "I thought you came later on when I fell into the pool."copyright protection45PENANAKA5s5XRipk49Please respect copyright.PENANAsgMVwZ8IlN

"No, Daesung and I arrived when you got to the top."copyright protection45PENANAMN67tZuF5S49Please respect copyright.PENANAEMVewzyZ59

"Oh," I sniffed and coughed. "Ya, it was kind of dramatic."copyright protection45PENANAwgEfinj4dD49Please respect copyright.PENANArxrOVc7aQ7

"Have you tried talking to GD?"copyright protection45PENANAzYeEqjChC249Please respect copyright.PENANAQinDdTCmCY

I quickly just drank my chicken soup from the bowl. And my goodness, 49Please respect copyright.PENANAliChxuJ22e

"So, how are you and Hyo-rin?" I asked, after putting the bowl aside.copyright protection45PENANAGHUKfE7aIy49Please respect copyright.PENANANgQqynVhqX

"Still not talking to each other," Taeyang amswered as he leaned back on the couch and stared at the ceiling.copyright protection45PENANAjpzplfWAxK49Please respect copyright.PENANAwgiuBfT0Zz

"Nope."copyright protection45PENANAUT1PDhuKsc49Please respect copyright.PENANACI8t8GR3Yi

"What really happened to you two yesterday?" I asked.copyright protection45PENANAR0w2Ixne1A49Please respect copyright.PENANAshvIZRGVVB

Taeyang didn't say anything at first. Then he breathed out heavily 49Please respect copyright.PENANAMyjU1sBTwz
and said, "what happened to us happens to every other couple, Sam."copyright protection45PENANAyWtAL7RfSj49Please respect copyright.PENANAby3JS2UrV4

you if you don't."copyright protection45PENANAsb544g2cmA49Please respect copyright.PENANA8YgcI8fCAa

I noticed Taeyang smile while he continued to look upwards. It was 49Please respect copyright.PENANAGBy28FnvsE
probably over what I had just said. I was not one who liked to push 49Please respect copyright.PENANAORHGzGzLfm
people over talking about their problems. I wasn't like Zoey who always 49Please respect copyright.PENANAtokKA2SQFt
got away with such things.copyright protection45PENANAReAngjVExX49Please respect copyright.PENANA0l5yodeMJG

"Aren't you going to say anything?" I asked Taeyang who continued to smile.copyright protection45PENANAe6TIGEPyUI49Please respect copyright.PENANAqxx8e7ONS4

"I'm just wondering why some things you wish for never come to pass."copyright protection45PENANASnTXsXdu9A49Please respect copyright.PENANAamtu64xZUc

I raised an eyebrow this time around. Was he diverting the question or was he talking in riddles now?copyright protection45PENANA51OGo40kJy49Please respect copyright.PENANAtUyytXLHJu

"I thought I was the only one who is sick today," I said rolling eyes.copyright protection45PENANAhXEaGkPwTK49Please respect copyright.PENANAna2Vih274V

"Don't mind what I just said," said Taeyang, as he looked at me. "It's nothing."copyright protection45PENANAeL78Iz6W4g49Please respect copyright.PENANAcfhFKoJhnD

"Mmm, figured. If you don't want to say anything, it's fine by.."copyright protection45PENANAwahkQFpQZ849Please respect copyright.PENANAuQy3p20bJK

Before I could finish my sentence, I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAG7UJ2d05l5
sneezed. Like, really loud. There was silence at first until Taeyang 49Please respect copyright.PENANA1ykjd4HXm5
started laughing at me while I blew my nose with a tissue.copyright protection45PENANAoh63rNohjh49Please respect copyright.PENANABRWaUlcVxV

"It's not funny, Tae," I said furrowing my eyebrows and threw the used up tissue in the plastic.copyright protection45PENANA1y28GLIMHN49Please respect copyright.PENANAFd3AW6NWc9

"You sounded funny when you sneezed. That's why I laughed," said Taeyang, giving me his eye smile.copyright protection45PENANA2eXkzNZZEZ49Please respect copyright.PENANA1dHmwVqeTM

"Well, it's good I made you laugh then. Just like me, you haven't been smiling at all since yesterday."copyright protection45PENANA83hf7I2v0m49Please respect copyright.PENANAjuDgEyBRu8

"Yep, cheers to that." copyright protection45PENANAGqxDL7rL6649Please respect copyright.PENANAHhmoDTk37d

"So, have you thought of any lyrics for the song yet?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection45PENANAKf91ugKxMK49Please respect copyright.PENANAQrIuHn3jex

I slapped my face intentionally. I had completely forgot about the song since I was running up and down the whole of yesterday.copyright protection45PENANATzMNpXp0QM49Please respect copyright.PENANAs1IORs7O0n

"I completely forgot," I said, as I sniffed. "Weren't you guys supposed to work on it today?"copyright protection45PENANAjxdRaYZBJ649Please respect copyright.PENANAYIEk7herlm

"We can't work on it without you," said Taeyang. "You and G-Dragon decided that the both of you would work on it together."copyright protection45PENANAIulRwP8hmV49Please respect copyright.PENANAEcNmGvJKOY

"I think I've a better idea. Let's all just 49Please respect copyright.PENANAJSGV6GfDU0
work on the song together. I may be the songwriter of the group, but I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAvuqzSckKJQ

"Me? Your middle man?" Taeyang burst into a fit of laughter. "That's going to be classic."copyright protection45PENANAz3lGZzTegb49Please respect copyright.PENANAIaToYhatTz

"You should be honoured. Most people would die just to be my middle man."copyright protection45PENANAr9EiIDGvZJ49Please respect copyright.PENANASxtMAXyQM4

"Haha, good point."copyright protection45PENANAMn9748HXnX49Please respect copyright.PENANAW8gPxf7HI1

Taeyang and I continued to talk for a good 49Please respect copyright.PENANAgByKn8IVZv
thirty minutes and it was so much fun. I was glad he came to see me 49Please respect copyright.PENANA0QW4VHyYbY
because life tends to be boring when you're alone. Apart from talking 49Please respect copyright.PENANA587lYEA5li
about the events that took place yesterday, we talked about other fun 49Please respect copyright.PENANA6BUEmhN4cM
things concerning our personal lives. Mostly focusing on the funny 49Please respect copyright.PENANAzdCwhydPwp
things that goes on whenever we were with your group members. I mostly 49Please respect copyright.PENANANCxUXvzyBU
talked about Zoey, since she always creates drama in my life, while 49Please respect copyright.PENANARHwLlS28Wf

While the two of us were laughing after 49Please respect copyright.PENANALB2imoapx7

phone call from the hotel land line. copyright protection45PENANAx9uVLB2yNP49Please respect copyright.PENANAJENYS5aCXV

I quickly went over to the phone, trying to 49Please respect copyright.PENANAXIx00UobjV
calm myself after laughing so much. Luckily, it was just the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAiXoX5oEWvC
receptionist downstairs, telling me that Seungri and Daesung had come to49Please respect copyright.PENANAmeg9c9fnLc
see me. I told the receptionist to tell them that they could come up 49Please respect copyright.PENANAjJVQJWK884
and I cut the line.copyright protection45PENANAEzdNHhWoej49Please respect copyright.PENANA3r1ro7Q23l

"Speaking of the devil," I said as I passed Taeyang, going back to my seat, "he is here with Daesung."copyright protection45PENANAln8s9ghA4C49Please respect copyright.PENANAEpzVzM5PaQ

"Seungri is here? Well, that's a surprise."copyright protection45PENANA0BLuxx6z5T49Please respect copyright.PENANA1tAXkjU5s2

"I'm not," I said shrugging my shoulders. "He's obviously here to check up on me, since he calls me his panda."copyright protection45PENANApKtCyaUuy949Please respect copyright.PENANA9vtbXRiOTl

"Trust me, you're one of his many pandas," said Taeyang, as he smiled.copyright protection45PENANAOUwXmFdEfh49Please respect copyright.PENANA9yLJukwz9H

"Shut up, Tae!" I threw a pillow at him and he blocked it as he raised his arm.copyright protection45PENANAggT2LrAR0G49Please respect copyright.PENANAqbb09vk3BM

"Eww, that pillow probably has your germs on49Please respect copyright.PENANA5KiyVgqe4j

"You're welcome," I said with a devious smile on my face.copyright protection45PENANA6hSCefhrTx49Please respect copyright.PENANAuieMRa2hp7

A few seconds later, we heard the noise of 49Please respect copyright.PENANAAZltkkQZOM
the elevator doors slide open and Seungri and Daesung appeared into the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAO19PowZhec
living room. Seungri was holding a huge stuffed panda and Daesung was 49Please respect copyright.PENANALIu0vlbyCA
holding a box of chocolates.copyright protection45PENANAJaOCdz4Nr449Please respect copyright.PENANAFdA1GUlxTa

"Ah, no, the panda is a very good friend of 49Please respect copyright.PENANAJCWdDrzO0c

Seungri. Daesung and Taeyang burst out laughing at the same time.copyright protection45PENANAOACGcRWujP49Please respect copyright.PENANAcXwoq4XqBO

"Do you really want me to come over there and fight over the panda?"copyright protection45PENANAC8UfP76LBp49Please respect copyright.PENANA0Frw4SA1jc

"I would give the lady the panda if I were you, Seungri," said Taeyang. "You wouldn't want to see her nasty side."copyright protection45PENANABCsAs7NRRO49Please respect copyright.PENANAQXxhy6mCef

"Hey, I don't have a nasty side," I said, as I turned to Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANAIFiLYGfOXA49Please respect copyright.PENANAFzyojRP93i

"Never mind that," said Daesung, "just give her the panda, Seungri."copyright protection45PENANAlVnNwQVkIN49Please respect copyright.PENANAmUeTcNZype

"Really? But he'll be scared without me," said Seungri, still holding onto the panda.copyright protection45PENANA8rtrcr7sf449Please respect copyright.PENANAO5Nnu6ejgh

"For goodness sake, I know the panda is 49Please respect copyright.PENANABTlAZVCW6G
mine," I said. "And besides, we ladies are good with handling cute and 49Please respect copyright.PENANAdsBsmOfmnF
cuddly stuff. Mr panda won't ever feel lonely or scared with me."copyright protection45PENANA3nEMqtlApG49Please respect copyright.PENANAAbKozeuNxK

I took the panda in my arms and I hugged and49Please respect copyright.PENANA3OVEgitvFQ
cuddled it as though I was a little girl who just got her doll for the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAbf2VEB98pH
first time. It was so soft and fuzzy that for a moment, it felt like a 49Please respect copyright.PENANATuRyVBciYM
warm pillow I could sleep on. The new smell of the panda triggered my 49Please respect copyright.PENANAL1AHGRZ9nF
nose though, and I sneezed so loud, yet again.copyright protection45PENANAiCJL3Wcbps49Please respect copyright.PENANA0yU2tzEDH3

"My goodness, Mr Panda would need a doctor," said Seungri. "You're gonna get him sick."copyright protection45PENANAgsQVfgoARO49Please respect copyright.PENANAlByd9uPlMN

"Aww, thanks Daesung," I said as I smiled at49Please respect copyright.PENANAFdsb39csvQ

faces at me every now and then, just to make me laugh, The Toxins 49Please respect copyright.PENANAEaF9Kh7PvK
arrived. At first I didn't notice since I was laughing so much, until 49Please respect copyright.PENANAZMLE5K6JbI
Daesung looked behind me and said:copyright protection45PENANArK4xxMJyyx49Please respect copyright.PENANA9RZ95nixYZ

"Hey, Zoey." copyright protection45PENANAfr5DjrQElg49Please respect copyright.PENANAdD9TMUaTJG

"Hey," Zoey replied. "I was wondering why there was laughter when we came in."copyright protection45PENANAzY8DvGqeeY49Please respect copyright.PENANAcqebzkzSRx

"Ya, we came to see how Sam was doing," said Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANAMtqS6JjXoE49Please respect copyright.PENANAR4b1XXV8RF

"It's good you came to keep her company while we were gone." Zoey 49Please respect copyright.PENANAOwogWMO6f6

"Ya, please do, it will be so much fun," said Seungri.copyright protection45PENANAT6iuozBC8T49Please respect copyright.PENANAmAETWxhelt

I tugged at my panda's ear absentmindley as I felt Taeyang's eyes on 49Please respect copyright.PENANAzT9NJGaNSv
me. I faced him and it was obvious he could read my mind. I was still 49Please respect copyright.PENANAaZUlsU1VAd
not in a mood to talking to the other Toxins, and I so much as wanted as49Please respect copyright.PENANABXNfQKN8Y8
to leave the room.copyright protection45PENANArwKpGhb9aa49Please respect copyright.PENANABy2LlMrwzk

The Toxins came back to the living room. Zoey sat next to me and I 49Please respect copyright.PENANA1KkV5MP6Hq
moved away from her as I held my panda like it was the only thing that 49Please respect copyright.PENANAkio7yfSlnR
ever mattered to me. Christine went to join Seungri and Daesung, while 49Please respect copyright.PENANAuZqxKMjciT
Mike and Daniel joined Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANA8Elqe8TYhR49Please respect copyright.PENANAxjDRfID5Pl

For a moment, no one said a word to each other and there was silence.49Please respect copyright.PENANAw9EUhc9ayx
As for me, I kept on tugging at the panda's ear still not looking at 49Please respect copyright.PENANA23wsAheUtw
Zoey.copyright protection45PENANATbYbFmKgYT49Please respect copyright.PENANAO1QrS6awb0

"Oh, Sam, you've a panda," said Daniel, breaking the silence.copyright protection45PENANAaqpVP6c1fn49Please respect copyright.PENANASHawCrJMCi

"Ah huh," I replied dully. copyright protection45PENANAbn2wOgFHfX49Please respect copyright.PENANAjElQ6W7lRB

"I got it for her," said Seungri, with a smile.copyright protection45PENANAz88xjNT44S49Please respect copyright.PENANARFCI6vOg20

"Aww, it's so cute," said Christine. "You should get me one just like that someday."copyright protection45PENANAXfima8tn9I49Please respect copyright.PENANAhVHrsjTb6v

I stared up at the ceiling and then at the panda. I got the box of 49Please respect copyright.PENANAtpaPfgLnCC
chocolates that were next to me, opened it and put a piece of chocolate 49Please respect copyright.PENANAZuiCco71Fa
in my mouth.copyright protection45PENANALl6NSU4xCj49Please respect copyright.PENANA1W6Joy3hK9

"And she also has chocolates too," said Zoey. "I also want some."copyright protection45PENANAubsDJMrDQv49Please respect copyright.PENANANeyX3OePbQ

When Zoey tried to reach out for chocolates, I lifted the box and 49Please respect copyright.PENANAsakKNw9UyP
took it to my other side to prevent her from getting any. I looked at 49Please respect copyright.PENANA5zMciaKlru
her with a frown on my face.copyright protection45PENANAvOLObVWEj649Please respect copyright.PENANAueI3bMRpB3

"Eish, sorry, I should have asked," said Zoey.copyright protection45PENANAm4rsRjnVRZ49Please respect copyright.PENANAg4eAO17XWF

"Ya, you should have!" I snapped at her.copyright protection45PENANAfmbHZUtqyk49Please respect copyright.PENANAN2ezexJYSa

Zoey looked hurt with the way I responded to her, but at the moment, 49Please respect copyright.PENANAtnpcqBYh1A
it didn't even matter. I turned to face the other way sucking at the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAkhEzRsAZqw
chocolate in my mouth.copyright protection45PENANAW38HSjDPXW49Please respect copyright.PENANAEdyTMNqwMj

"Are you still mad at us?" Zoey asked.copyright protection45PENANAWj1nMTH9Oz49Please respect copyright.PENANAHfG6r6IqoJ

I didn't answer as I put another piece of chocolate in mouth. My 49Please respect copyright.PENANA0J1FiT8TSy
silence was an obvious answer. I was still mad, especially at Zoey.copyright protection45PENANA94WkLVffmN49Please respect copyright.PENANAqxMZqzMR5y

"I know it's a little late to say this," started Zoey. "But we're 49Please respect copyright.PENANAaNORUfYCGn

I stared at the ceiling as I sucked at the chocolate in my mouth as though I wasn't listening.copyright protection45PENANABvhCT3vBdk49Please respect copyright.PENANA98TsZTF6Sv

"I don't like it when you're not talking to me," Zoey continued. "And49Please respect copyright.PENANATdHoGhfx7A
last night when you didn't say a word to me, I knew you would give me 49Please respect copyright.PENANAI7YBMddzRj
the silent treatment. You know you're my best friend and my only source 49Please respect copyright.PENANAj1sdtr69yZ
of happiness everyday. You know I'm not myself without you. I'm really 49Please respect copyright.PENANAErdmQTD5rL
sorry, Sam."copyright protection45PENANAamo7Ha2Xpp49Please respect copyright.PENANAF9SELFRZeJ

"We're all sorry, Sam," said Daniel. "I know you're hurt real bad because of our silly actions yesterday."copyright protection45PENANALYJDGKnGoX49Please respect copyright.PENANAiyKKMecTnK

"I'm sorry too," said Mike. "I should have acted like the responsible49Please respect copyright.PENANAS2c5o2Y27q
one, but we all know that's not the case. You really saved us yesterday49Please respect copyright.PENANANNAFrmljlz
and all we want is for you to talk to us again."copyright protection45PENANAEZsWCm07Xd49Please respect copyright.PENANA2E8NoU1BNp

"I'm also sorry, Sam," said Christine. "We might say 'we won't do it 49Please respect copyright.PENANAlFrxLPzKRH

without you. You're our leader."copyright protection45PENANAr8AQfi0igp49Please respect copyright.PENANAfi7o6wi776

I still didn't say a word to them as I continued to stare upwards. I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAwtMX0xNAiF
knew it would come to this, them saying that they were sorry. My hatred 49Please respect copyright.PENANAitkMeFIllY
for them wasn't going to last forever and I knew that very well. They 49Please respect copyright.PENANAOBgVZmrhuz
were family to me and I loved them despite the awful things they put me 49Please respect copyright.PENANAo12aZ3IME0
through.copyright protection45PENANAI1osE4c2LB49Please respect copyright.PENANAsWtNIItr4O

"Aren't you going to say something, Sam?" Taeyang asked. copyright protection45PENANAZqBsndOnkM49Please respect copyright.PENANApSpGOo3gGx

"And what should I say?" I asked. "They know completely well that I can't stay mad at them forever, so...."copyright protection45PENANABMUcCavCtL49Please respect copyright.PENANAP4zSfyVXlz

"Wait, you're not mad any more?" Zoey asked, with a little hint of excitement in her voice.copyright protection45PENANA2cMqErvQuh49Please respect copyright.PENANAYOwsBea4Ge

I sighed deeply and I turned to face Zoey. And I each gave the other Toxins a look as well.copyright protection45PENANArtI2V5gKtA49Please respect copyright.PENANAT57iLVHPcn

"I'm mad, angry and pretty much upset with all of you," I said. "But 49Please respect copyright.PENANAn2sWUHuPFQ
it's obvious I can never stay mad at you forever. So, yes, I forgive 49Please respect copyright.PENANApDEV5fagkQ
you."copyright protection45PENANAw5mrhZBMB549Please respect copyright.PENANAudWCvIydxK

"Seriously, you mean it?" Daniel asked.copyright protection45PENANAxDhk4VLAMf49Please respect copyright.PENANAAUM3RGLlwq

I sniffed and said, "ya, I mean it."copyright protection45PENANASdJBgFHwpa49Please respect copyright.PENANAbW4QSa53qp

"Aww, I love you, Sam!" Zoey exclaimed as she tried to come close to hug me.copyright protection45PENANA7VfumxtYj549Please respect copyright.PENANAUVCQy8y6l6

"Whoa! Back up!" I said with my hands raised to stop her from getting49Please respect copyright.PENANAQW1DZSkLeQ
any closer to me. "I've a cold. Just because I forgive you, doesn't 49Please respect copyright.PENANAbqNggGqmJR
mean you can hug me."copyright protection45PENANA4RJlbOhXp349Please respect copyright.PENANALDNoulx3rT

"Ah, you! Always acting like you don't want a hug. Come here!" Zoey 49Please respect copyright.PENANA9iPbVP3fBh
wrapped her arms around me and hugged me. "Your cold isn't that 49Please respect copyright.PENANA6MIU3YAukj
contagious and I don't care if I catch it anyway."copyright protection45PENANAdhhXTxCA4149Please respect copyright.PENANAm6Xavrv2uX

Christine, Daniel and Mike also came over and we were all hugging 49Please respect copyright.PENANAWDgMObBSqd
each other on the couch. Even the panda got caught up in the hug. It was49Please respect copyright.PENANAax0Sr3R1xc
kind of nice and I smiled. I completely wasn't mad at them any more, 49Please respect copyright.PENANAlUii4OKARe
that's for certain.copyright protection45PENANALcX1Gjy9iS49Please respect copyright.PENANAxNSNzHZbzq

"Aww, let me take a pic of this beautiful moment," said Deasung as he pulled out his phone and took a photo.copyright protection45PENANAfmKYIWM0Tb49Please respect copyright.PENANAoKXoDosuq0

"I'm glad you guys finally resolved things ," said Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANA37tk4mSHXX49Please respect copyright.PENANAGMUZ4YNOyE

"Ya, I'm glad we did," I said, as I felt my nose twitch. "Can you guys please stop hugging me, I'm about to...."copyright protection45PENANAII9FJPZiZi49Please respect copyright.PENANA36sVU1CTdc

I sneezed and the other Toxins quickly withdrew their arms around me and looked on as though I was contagious.copyright protection45PENANAaeFUdnRZnK49Please respect copyright.PENANAjCWg0zFs46

"Excuse me," I said as I got a tissue and blew my nose. "I just can't help myself."copyright protection45PENANAarSEMX0EEX49Please respect copyright.PENANAsLSnKWlyLU

"Don't worry, you won't help yourself laughing once you see this 49Please respect copyright.PENANAdO1FKVHmOV

"Please don't tell me you captured me sneezing," I rolled my eyes when I obviously knew the answer.copyright protection45PENANAkSQZN3nF3L49Please respect copyright.PENANAatW2QHZcfL

"Ya, he did," said Seungri, with a smirk on his face.copyright protection45PENANApediSZfTEU49Please respect copyright.PENANA7tz88k3QHS

"Never mind. It's almost lunch time and I'm starving," I said. "What can we order for lunch?"copyright protection45PENANAQghx2jWEmF49Please respect copyright.PENANALgZiNoQTsR

"I'm glad you asked," said Zoey. "You just sit back and relax, my hungry kitty. We already have lunch covered."copyright protection45PENANAfGy6Gma41d49Please respect copyright.PENANA4Dl0FbHFoX

"What do you mean?" I asked, looking at Zoey with an eyebrow raised.copyright protection45PENANAQqr3Jk2ZdH49Please respect copyright.PENANAqwq0EzkHq1

"We thought of having a special lunch just for you since you were so mad at us," said Daniel. copyright protection45PENANAT3XaA0uxEQ49Please respect copyright.PENANAzbizu5YlZr

"Well, that's interesting," said Taeyang. "Weren't you going to invite us as well?"copyright protection45PENANAcUxL0e7ai849Please respect copyright.PENANAc34x4JJLo8

"Well, ya, but surprisingly you brought yourselves here," said Zoey. "We were about to call you as soon as we arrived."copyright protection45PENANAo8zQbiaehn49Please respect copyright.PENANAJPE9PiJa09

"We already called the others so, no need," said Mike.copyright protection45PENANAVbrTm2TRAx49Please respect copyright.PENANAbAluaPz8ay

At that moment, I had put in another piece of chocolate in my mouth 49Please respect copyright.PENANAAnCEVGoEsN
and I almost choked on it. Mike who was the closet to me patted my back.copyright protection45PENANAINrfysuFDM49Please respect copyright.PENANANbCrlsK5CL

"Hey, are you okay?" Mike asked.copyright protection45PENANAN1VmR6F1lX49Please respect copyright.PENANAeOlziwpSFA

"I'm fine, I guess," I said, as I held my throat.copyright protection45PENANAoh8QavS4ms49Please respect copyright.PENANArfX3TTKhyd

"This is what happens when you don't share the chocolates," said Zoey. "Here, I'll help you finish up."copyright protection45PENANAB4g3kOwOt949Please respect copyright.PENANA4lpHML9xQL

Zoey got the box of chocolates and Christine went to sit next to Zoey49Please respect copyright.PENANAi5zEESb4KQ
to eat the chocolates while I continued rubbing my throat, deep in 49Please respect copyright.PENANAEc6Cg0v0h3
thought.copyright protection45PENANABhawD1Dj3Y49Please respect copyright.PENANAempD3bodJe

"Can you excuse me for a second?" I said as I got up from the couch with my panda and left the room.copyright protection45PENANAgsfpiqUbug49Please respect copyright.PENANAY1jyFYqQ2b

I was in the passage as I leaned on the wall, close to the door of 49Please respect copyright.PENANAHHnNjDNPE5
the room Zoey and I were sleeping in. I held the panda in my arms and 49Please respect copyright.PENANATSsiwwuUJd
hugged it tightly. I sighed in what felt like sadness.copyright protection45PENANAE6kU9FIGtc49Please respect copyright.PENANA9HftfUrGLu

"You aren't okay, again, aren't you?" came Taeyang's voice behind me.copyright protection45PENANAP5tZB71er549Please respect copyright.PENANARtcegwS4lx

I sniffed and said without facing him, "you already know. I don't have to say anything."copyright protection45PENANAdHxt6QT02n49Please respect copyright.PENANAafqCyW82QR

I heard Taeyang's footsteps and I knew he was coming closer. He also 49Please respect copyright.PENANAg0zvtPqVvc
leaned his back against the wall as he stood right behind me and I heard49Please respect copyright.PENANApmFCBW8t1u
him sigh.copyright protection45PENANAhGtCADhjjL49Please respect copyright.PENANA1bJrNhnWke

"Are you really going to stay mad at GD for long?" he asked.copyright protection45PENANAw9Q09r8bGz49Please respect copyright.PENANAOAen6IcwDI

"And are you going to do the same with Hyo-rin?" I also asked.copyright protection45PENANAgTgOmnFfoH49Please respect copyright.PENANAI34oFGkN9l

"Are we really do this right now?"copyright protection45PENANADFo7hZKyi449Please respect copyright.PENANAhbw0CkiZhC

"Do you want us to continue making each other feel bad about yourselves?" copyright protection45PENANAkOeaPnCXzi49Please respect copyright.PENANAe5dstjaGPO

Taeyang chuckled silently and I smiled, still not looking at him.copyright protection45PENANAwPcNEyakOz49Please respect copyright.PENANAoyRsWw9hki

"This isn't working, is it?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection45PENANA2reqyvpj4I49Please respect copyright.PENANACBu9C6uU6L

"Nope." copyright protection45PENANAopxDzm0cjz49Please respect copyright.PENANAxkRLNk4Y0U

I heard Taeyang take in another deep breath and said, "I really admire you, Sam."copyright protection45PENANAvQpHD4fOp449Please respect copyright.PENANAMotDRpa0Hu

My eyes almost felt like they would pop out of their sockets after 49Please respect copyright.PENANAjk5NtIUYD0
what Taeyang had just said. He admired me? Like how? Admiring meant a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAKbkBW8W16X
lot of things. And right now I felt really confused.copyright protection45PENANAnrvBR47goc49Please respect copyright.PENANAVTmpwdPHew

I turned to look at him and I found him staring at me. He gave me a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAbyQhmkZgiD
simple smile and I didn't know where to begin to ask what he truly 49Please respect copyright.PENANAh3OCFKKBLR
meant.copyright protection45PENANAYNBwqbSrnb49Please respect copyright.PENANAzHKV6g9VYo

"I....uh, what do you, uh.... mean when you said you admired me?" I asked as I stammered.copyright protection45PENANA1T1rAFvQuU49Please respect copyright.PENANAs9WirjCrzV

"That you're surrounded by such amazing people in your life that 49Please respect copyright.PENANA4RYStDDdfp
you're even able to forgive them despite you getting hurt all the time 49Please respect copyright.PENANA4O7OKe5Ta3
by the same people," he answered. "I admire that you've such a good 49Please respect copyright.PENANAhCdeUExx67
heart. You don't seem to hold grudges for long."copyright protection45PENANAURlqtdvBuT49Please respect copyright.PENANAsaYr3s4GFk

"A good heart? Really? I don't think so. If it's anyone with a good heart it's you, Tae, not me." copyright protection45PENANAOtHpZ7BRyZ49Please respect copyright.PENANA6K9dzTsFNC

"Then if you can see that in me, I can also see that in you too."copyright protection45PENANA3AS51sKwje49Please respect copyright.PENANAI4eWj9BQHH

I sighed and I gave Taeyang a stern eye. "So what's your point?"copyright protection45PENANArd6NEA09cv49Please respect copyright.PENANAY9SXAVpFC4

"That you shouldn't stay mad at GD also."copyright protection45PENANA30YKpXS1Pr49Please respect copyright.PENANA0IP9Wo3o3Q

"Tae, you don't know how I felt yesterday when he betrayed me and left me dangling on the cliff for my life."copyright protection45PENANA0S1SX2lIzE49Please respect copyright.PENANA0MVfJepk56

Taeyang raised an eyebrow at me. "You felt betrayed?"copyright protection45PENANAX0S3OxEPHQ49Please respect copyright.PENANA23gU0RQpxs

"Well, ya." I shrugged my shoulders. "What GD did to me wasn't.....It was so not....."copyright protection45PENANAkKQivggoh549Please respect copyright.PENANAuxbkH8ILwM

Apparently, I couldn't seem to find the right words. I didn't even 49Please respect copyright.PENANABxzxNjMcER
realise how I felt when I talked about this to Taeyang. On one hand I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAjGVzBWqrlX
was confused and on the other, I was still mad I could break something. I49Please respect copyright.PENANAUQv5acdTXK
was even squeezing my panda tightly. If it was a live animal, I would 49Please respect copyright.PENANAGzig65zSid
have have choked it to death.copyright protection45PENANAPiXQbVSwDs49Please respect copyright.PENANAKBUFavBBXX

Taeyang still looked at me with his eyebrow raised and I didn't like that he wasn't saying anything.copyright protection45PENANAbAt4EhBi6j49Please respect copyright.PENANAzRO4XYhbSf

"Aren't you going to say anything, Tae?" I asked, sounding frustrated. "Don't look at me like that."copyright protection45PENANA9r30Kzg0Xy49Please respect copyright.PENANAWyPePWjoOB

Taeyang folded his arms and said, "if you really want me to say 49Please respect copyright.PENANACzcwfn2QZ0
something, I'll say what I think and what I'm seeing right now. You 49Please respect copyright.PENANAOySCDPBV1t
aren't mad at GD. You're just hurt."copyright protection45PENANA6MQ3D1ZwyC49Please respect copyright.PENANAaX2ZbRVvgK

"Hurt? I don't get it." I felt even more confused.copyright protection45PENANAYKdrORJqaQ49Please respect copyright.PENANA6SkjpzHspG

"You're may think you're upset and angry, when actually you're hurt. 49Please respect copyright.PENANAsefkQTarOc
You just said you felt betrayed with what GD did to you. Feeling 49Please respect copyright.PENANAVZ9YZlPVR6
betrayed isn't getting angry, but feeling hurt."copyright protection45PENANAJjhNj1mA2k49Please respect copyright.PENANAGYZ0hpzZRZ

I slowly took in what Taeyang said and I couldn't help but feel he was right on this one.copyright protection45PENANA887ZcK0bgz49Please respect copyright.PENANAFkdVF4OPwD

"But I wouldn't feel hurt and betrayed if I...." I was soon hit with 49Please respect copyright.PENANA2rDcpCyfyp
the most shocking revelation of my life and I stopped myself in mid 49Please respect copyright.PENANAmenlfFKPEC
sentence as I looked at Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANAOfj1G8Sqy249Please respect copyright.PENANAOjW2fC74rD

Taeyang gave me that look like he already knew what I was about to 49Please respect copyright.PENANAHu4lGuYeKw
say. And he probably had figured it out a whole lot sooner. I shook my 49Please respect copyright.PENANAD6L0r0FcPj
head at him, while in return, he nodded his head.copyright protection45PENANAgimy5FzsfC49Please respect copyright.PENANAOEDLHTnOXP

"No, freaking way," I said, trying not to raise my voice. copyright protection45PENANANnLUnXEo9V49Please respect copyright.PENANArFkw001YeL

"Ya," said Taeyang. "Believe it or not, it seems like you like GD."copyright protection45PENANAXXahZRpShX49Please respect copyright.PENANAvSRgTjhyv7

I didn't say a word as I went back to leaning my back against the 49Please respect copyright.PENANASkLw6tpuhn
wall. I buried my chin into my panda's soft head not really believing 49Please respect copyright.PENANAkJ2Eg2Eh0T
what had just happened. The thought of liking GD clouded my mind. Not 49Please respect copyright.PENANA2wLUMEd3dJ
only that, what happened between Daesung and I at the park really made 49Please respect copyright.PENANAa64WDap3FH
things complicated.copyright protection45PENANAUygg6lWFOb49Please respect copyright.PENANAqZqsDGviYw

"I guess you're right," I muttered to Taeyang. "But I can't tell for sure if I really like him or not."copyright protection45PENANAiBz3vW1aka49Please respect copyright.PENANAc02XVOC8SQ

"Maybe all you need is a little time to figure it out," said Taeyang. "Right now, you're just confused."copyright protection45PENANA6h8gy78YZp49Please respect copyright.PENANAR3XV0A6qDL

"I'm 'really' confused. You've no idea."copyright protection45PENANAVUXbb3x7Jm49Please respect copyright.PENANA74Lyxpf2Ie

"Did something else happen that you aren't telling me?"copyright protection45PENANAi2XS5tO6E849Please respect copyright.PENANAyUeAS9puii

If there was ever a way I would personally give Taeyang an award for,49Please respect copyright.PENANAlali6mScMw
was for mind reading. It's like he knew what was going on inside my 49Please respect copyright.PENANAYUBJt89JaR
head. I wondered if I should tell him about Daesung too, but I was saved49Please respect copyright.PENANAXILciDlH8E
my the bell.copyright protection45PENANAhKqp1Zx9Xw49Please respect copyright.PENANAZtOlLVIE7v

"Hey, you two, let's go, lunch is ready downstairs," said Zoey appearing in the passage. copyright protection45PENANAzTrx5CBDJl49Please respect copyright.PENANAb6pMQTUZC4

"Okay, let me put the panda away," I said as I quickly disappeared into the room and I left it on my bed. copyright protection45PENANAZ2nXUtrIz549Please respect copyright.PENANAQzMBL5f7Nn

When I came out, I still found Taeyang, where I had left him and the two of us went to join the others entering the elevator.copyright protection45PENANARQQigShN1f49Please respect copyright.PENANALNRA9DvRhD

"You two are really close today or are you planning something?" Zoey asked Taeyang and I as we got into the elevator.copyright protection45PENANAkB8L8enJR749Please respect copyright.PENANAmsKMeAF9zh

"No, why do you ask?" I asked.copyright protection45PENANA5QasN4VfNv49Please respect copyright.PENANAdqQ02C5hJS

"Well, I'm just asking," said Zoey, as she playfully scratched the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAFvGx6PaCGs
back of her head. "Who knows, Taeyang might steal you away from me and 49Please respect copyright.PENANAg3U0P9Auia
become your new best friend."copyright protection45PENANAlFlbXC4fp649Please respect copyright.PENANALwACwDfCVZ

"Sounds like you're jealous," said Seungri, with a mocking smile on his face.copyright protection45PENANAuJHDuQRSAI49Please respect copyright.PENANAvAvb8B1ieH

"No, I'm not!" Zoey snapped.copyright protection45PENANAZFza7nf3C249Please respect copyright.PENANAKuKFuzP548

"Hilarious," muttered Taeyang, as he smiled.copyright protection45PENANAyXIU9GweWV49Please respect copyright.PENANAfQFQtctIOp

"If I knew that's how you were thinking, I wouldn't have asked," I said, as I rolled my eyes.copyright protection45PENANAkrE149SW1s49Please respect copyright.PENANAIkZdw8Oxq3

I pressed the button leading us to the ground floor and the doors to 49Please respect copyright.PENANAebxZR2zH7D
the elevator closed before us. In a matter of seconds, we found 49Please respect copyright.PENANAPnuveXHIGw
ourselves on the ground floor and we all walked out of the elevator.copyright protection45PENANAF17ebfCqie49Please respect copyright.PENANA7oQ7BmfqUG

We went to the main hotel dinning room and a waiter lead us to the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAt8S18J3Irb
table reserved for us for lunch. It was a huge round table in the VIP 49Please respect copyright.PENANAmhyQMMOtuu
section. There were ten seats around the table, obviously for all Big 49Please respect copyright.PENANAZCTQJucYV6
Bang and Toxins members.copyright protection45PENANAtRccLmShAO49Please respect copyright.PENANAFpfxqohu6I

"Why didn't you invite, our managers and Lee?" I asked Zoey as we approached the table.copyright protection45PENANAcUfRWk1Ph249Please respect copyright.PENANAFsZdiL07fv

"Are you serious? Those guys are busy and you want me to invite them?" Zoey asked. copyright protection45PENANAhW4pbgFOHY49Please respect copyright.PENANACe7v4R0hPV

"To be honest, we just wanted to avoid them asking us questions about49Please respect copyright.PENANAovlE2L2kg9
yesterday," said Daniel. "We wanted it to be strictly Toxins and Big 49Please respect copyright.PENANA2VB28UN912
Bang members."copyright protection45PENANA3bPfnACgRd49Please respect copyright.PENANAEDhM9mD9Dt

"Was that so hard to say?" I asked Zoey upon Daniel's answer.copyright protection45PENANA548lW5GXUX49Please respect copyright.PENANA52YqG1cJls

"Maybe. Let's forget about it and sit, shall we?" Zoey suggested and she walked ahead of us, reaching the table first.copyright protection45PENANA0bU4B6lgU249Please respect copyright.PENANASnouqwoeGq

We all got to the table and before I could pull out my chair, Taeyang pulled the chair out for me and I glady sat.copyright protection45PENANAeXd4dBEPRw49Please respect copyright.PENANAhk4y7eUKny

"Thanks, Tae," I said as I smiled up at him.copyright protection45PENANA3XBbixgYva49Please respect copyright.PENANAdtAbUhd60y

"You're welcome," said Taeyang as he sat next to me and Daesung sat on my other side.copyright protection45PENANAWvmQAYWVfR49Please respect copyright.PENANAzSWXnmuMAb

"Okay, weird, you two are getting really close," said Zoey as she sat across the table looking directly at Taeyang and me.copyright protection45PENANAYuOby1NcRE49Please respect copyright.PENANAdRwhqDwknT

"Nah, I don't think so," said Christine. "Taeyang is just so sweet. I49Please respect copyright.PENANATAntMhKZoL
wish I was the sick one so he would be treating me like that."copyright protection45PENANAJUCk5VSmTo49Please respect copyright.PENANAyXEuV1QqNr

"Mmm, I don't think so," said Zoey, shaking her head. "Did something 49Please respect copyright.PENANAC0i8iJLO38
happen between the two of you yesterday that I'm not aware of?"copyright protection45PENANAwQUTHvREr649Please respect copyright.PENANAIXJ5qvmbvL

"My goodness," I rolled my eyes and sniffed. "Stop making a drama out of everything, Zoey."copyright protection45PENANAvpAjB8lolc49Please respect copyright.PENANAX3JByEDo5r

"I'm not," said Zoey, shrugging her shoulders.copyright protection45PENANA357FqcAjyu49Please respect copyright.PENANAQHs9PKSAzW

"Then, stop trying to make one."copyright protection45PENANAH5lBZ27QGy49Please respect copyright.PENANAJiTsokYLwt

"Before you two decide to tear each other apart," said Seungri. "Can we please have our food now? I'm starving."copyright protection45PENANAXbXyuyHQX349Please respect copyright.PENANAwtxf55UJuZ

"Ya, me too," said Mike.copyright protection45PENANA2089GymgSV49Please respect copyright.PENANAakHCuxnm8X

"Wait, we've to wait for TOP and GD to get here first," said Zoey.copyright protection45PENANALz16b08iRP49Please respect copyright.PENANAiRfbkDwio2

"Seriously?" Daniel asked. "Do we really have to wait?"copyright protection45PENANARO0Omvn3lk49Please respect copyright.PENANAMUwj9Bp3kU

"We can't even be so sure how long they're going to take to get here," said Daesung.copyright protection45PENANA6olfy1OUiG49Please respect copyright.PENANA3vfL7Jiv6r

"They will be here any moment now," said Zoey as she stared at her fancy white wrist watch. "Trust me."copyright protection45PENANAP4gRarRjKI49Please respect copyright.PENANAsoiIACl6VK

"Really? Can we just get on with it?" Mike asked.copyright protection45PENANA8Bx9qTEOX049Please respect copyright.PENANA9HFF1PhrTC

"We haven't even passed a minute, and you're complaining already?" Daesung asked.copyright protection45PENANA84oujWv8RO49Please respect copyright.PENANAlW7AIfk0Kq

"Ah, here they come," said Zoey as she looked behind me. "Told you they will be here."copyright protection45PENANAOHS4y3wqmh49Please respect copyright.PENANAsdPKVpnhwj

I didn't even dare try to look behind me as I twirled a strand of my 49Please respect copyright.PENANA1G0Gm1vDto
hair with my fingers. Zoey got up from her seat and ran over to G-Dragon49Please respect copyright.PENANAgOlnp4DJ5o
and TOP.copyright protection45PENANA8vTFEkzj8x49Please respect copyright.PENANAaxBZiwoFNV

"I'm so glad you're here," said Zoey. copyright protection45PENANAjgCILWFh4w49Please respect copyright.PENANAYPCZwY11Bu

"Why don't you see for yourself?" Zoey suggested.copyright protection45PENANALkTF0yZAR749Please respect copyright.PENANAhCsSBLp0qc

I heard footsteps coming towards the table and I couldn't help but 49Please respect copyright.PENANAWp2ypywqz8
feel a little uncomfortable as I moved in my seat. Taeyang must have 49Please respect copyright.PENANAV00eNfWE9o
noticed because he turned to look at me.copyright protection45PENANA8boKT9HyqL49Please respect copyright.PENANAAq13jCOIDf

"Are you okay?" he whispered.copyright protection45PENANA4wEiuB5w5h49Please respect copyright.PENANAVzEX74vDu5

"I'm trying to," I whispered back.copyright protection45PENANAURCOxDnwee49Please respect copyright.PENANALq5MET2Bxb

I soon felt strong hands grip my shoulders and I was startled. For a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAZ8B1bUDZDg
moment, I thought it was GD until I took a whiff of TOP's cologne.copyright protection45PENANADmp17jbORB49Please respect copyright.PENANAeyPTvXX0Bs

"Hi, Sam," said TOP, as he bent over to give me a peck on the cheek. "How are you doing?"copyright protection45PENANAAW7efCQk8W49Please respect copyright.PENANA5nSb9w4b7C

"I'm a whole lot better, thanks," I replied, as I felt myself blush 49Please respect copyright.PENANAm7KY9VSMVw
and the spot where TOP pecked me burn up. "It's nothing serious."copyright protection45PENANAB3OeSlRfR549Please respect copyright.PENANA394T2zQ0zs

"Glad to hear that."copyright protection45PENANAuusUwAdHo549Please respect copyright.PENANAsEPkQYRU9Z

When TOP let go of my shoulders and walked away to take his seat next to Mike, I heard G-Dragon's voice behind me.copyright protection45PENANAjZ2qdi23Cb49Please respect copyright.PENANAxv7iugem39

"I'm glad you're okay, Sam. I thought of the worst when you got sick."copyright protection45PENANA0eeOs69km049Please respect copyright.PENANAT6jX0lwRl6

I was planning not to turn and look at G-Dragon, but I did anyway. 49Please respect copyright.PENANAjOL89B60wg
When I looked at him, he was staring at me with those captivating eyes 49Please respect copyright.PENANA03L8lgoADs
of his. I could tell that he was sorry for what he did to me yesterday. I49Please respect copyright.PENANAJwy2tzoZqK
was wondering whether to jump at him and tear him apart, or just let 49Please respect copyright.PENANA5JyQRHsYIY
the problem go like water under the bridge.copyright protection45PENANApQvSL2sZKR49Please respect copyright.PENANAeJ10RnggXT

I smiled, at least that was an effort, and said, "I'm fine, GD, my cold isn't serious neither is it contagious."copyright protection45PENANA43Q7u4px7149Please respect copyright.PENANAIHphJSQ8Sh

"Wait, you're not mad at me anymore?" he asked.copyright protection45PENANAI8gXWJ453r49Please respect copyright.PENANASY0rOR9hPS

I tried not to furrow my eyebrows. "Let's not talk about that. I'm starved."copyright protection45PENANA6tiBl3DO2o49Please respect copyright.PENANAf3Bg3tEkJC

"Okay, then," said Zoey, as she wrapped her arm around G-Dragon's elbow. "Let's sit and have lunch."copyright protection45PENANAF7rveWzDuH49Please respect copyright.PENANAdsjCJ3uAbn

Zoey and G-Dragon sat down next to each other as they were conversating about something.copyright protection45PENANAFdPVaMFfRI49Please respect copyright.PENANAR4lSvaJFrz

"You know what? At least I tried not to sound mad at him," I said to Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANAGXcYzx2dl449Please respect copyright.PENANAxGD8WHBB1l

"Will you try to keep that act up for long?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection45PENANAB1b3xq063u49Please respect copyright.PENANAdeNwRxAm8M

"If I can manage to have lunch without any mishaps, then I know things will be okay."copyright protection45PENANAOIHEESrj8i49Please respect copyright.PENANAJ0Q4SmeC1F

The waiters soon came and laid our lunch on the table. We first had 49Please respect copyright.PENANAbylPGiwiTx
lovely soup for a starter. And since Zoey mentioned earlier that it was a49Please respect copyright.PENANAE7MrEDZeZ7
special lunch specifically for me, we were all served my favourite dish49Please respect copyright.PENANA0I8QN0d1Ce
as the main meal, Italian chicken terazzini.copyright protection45PENANA2PgeNQMP4849Please respect copyright.PENANAGOM2DtkaMe

For a moment, I felt more at home than ever before. A feeling I 49Please respect copyright.PENANAIqmuS08Re8
hadn't felt in a long time. Zoey really knew how to make me feel more 49Please respect copyright.PENANAZeR75E7jGK
pleased with her in order for me to forget that I was ever mad.copyright protection45PENANAUF96JGwKNA49Please respect copyright.PENANAxmzkpcOKnA

"Mmm, this is so delicious," said Mike, a few minutes in after the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAZ51lATlILz
meal. "Now I see why you like this dish whenever we are at home, Sam. 49Please respect copyright.PENANAQKOIRUmZd2
It's so awesome."copyright protection45PENANAeCjWhXPIhX49Please respect copyright.PENANAKLpj5PwTzT

"I agree," said Seungri. "And the chefs here really know how to make a good meal."copyright protection45PENANA1kMiyA8kqc49Please respect copyright.PENANAuyYwTypehb

"We wouldn't have had this if it wasn't for Zoey," I said, as I stared at her. "Thanks, by the way."copyright protection45PENANAtlSCrCjYm749Please respect copyright.PENANAO8VDQNxdML

"Anything for you, Sam," said Zoey with a huge grin on her face. "But49Please respect copyright.PENANAgwwGQBvmv5
to be honest, this whole lunch thing, wasn't really my idea."copyright protection45PENANAyBJRx1PmJ649Please respect copyright.PENANAf0DewxMWM3

"Oh? Then who's idea was it then?" Daesung asked.copyright protection45PENANAkKq73ZHck849Please respect copyright.PENANA7Bc2e2PMfC

"Da, GD. Who else?" Zoey replied as she playfully nudged G-Dragon on his arm with her elbow.copyright protection45PENANAoNthqVUKTg49Please respect copyright.PENANAyv94bZGHlc

I had just taken in some food into my mouth and I almost choked on 49Please respect copyright.PENANAMBcqPJYCFK
it, but I tried not to make it look obvious. I slowly put my spoon and 49Please respect copyright.PENANAGNmSQAUGna
fork on the plate as I slowly tried to chew my food, but at the same 49Please respect copyright.PENANAiVGs0RrHzN
time, processing what Zoey had just said.copyright protection45PENANARrRBjpC8Ml49Please respect copyright.PENANATlo6MePKQv

"This was all G-Dragon's idea?" I asked.copyright protection45PENANAf66Ge9FWl049Please respect copyright.PENANAvxiRp9rkPP

"Well, ya," Christine replied. "You were so mad that you weren't 49Please respect copyright.PENANAu7LazL21sB
talking to us, when we met G-Dragon at YG this morning, he suggested the49Please respect copyright.PENANAPmXdsKsiui
idea on throwing you a special lunch to lighten your mood."copyright protection45PENANA4KNy2etWYm49Please respect copyright.PENANAOZP7Qfgiz5

At that moment, I didn't know if all this lightened my mood or just darkened it even more.copyright protection45PENANAcQO4r7t3ff49Please respect copyright.PENANA74dSfNEhO6

"Thanks for the lunch, GD," I said with a smile, which felt rather 49Please respect copyright.PENANATDtRRVBje6
painful on my face. "It's so sweet of you to have come up with this 49Please respect copyright.PENANAC35saWIrei
idea."copyright protection45PENANApumvaAFQw149Please respect copyright.PENANAwmmKfBxTTm

"You're welcome," said G-Dragon as he winked at me.copyright protection45PENANAQBME9PTCLS49Please respect copyright.PENANA0M0tESpfcE

I almost felt like jumping at him from my seat and poke his eyes out 49Please respect copyright.PENANAmOHrhSo0jD
with a fork, but I was surprised at myself when I didn't move a muscle 49Please respect copyright.PENANAiQZEAff888
and continued to stare at him with a fake smile on my face. Where was 49Please respect copyright.PENANAu9VvCzn2Pz
all this anger coming from? And why was it that with every minute that 49Please respect copyright.PENANAHcooDGg2GA
passed, my anger kept turning into rage?copyright protection45PENANAZYIN29Uwca49Please respect copyright.PENANAFYqFC1USa2

Oh, goodness. I needed help, that's for sure. I wasn't supposed to be49Please respect copyright.PENANA1FcXaPxxRm
mad at G-Dragon up to this point. But why did I still feel angry and 49Please respect copyright.PENANA7yyvXcbefR
hurt? copyright protection45PENANAMCF88QJNGf49Please respect copyright.PENANAOUPfzshtlr

I tried to push aside the questions and my boiling anger as I stared 49Please respect copyright.PENANAwm6IjgxQOp
at my food and continued to eat. When we were all done with our main 49Please respect copyright.PENANAdVXMrVZC9e
meal, we were served dessert. Again, surprise, surprise, it was my 49Please respect copyright.PENANAuY9kdIMvc7
favourite dessert, frozen chocolate moussé.copyright protection45PENANAPxRCc0r5Dc49Please respect copyright.PENANAWJu3rOkZF8

"Yum, yum, yum," I said, with a bright smile on my face as the waiter49Please respect copyright.PENANAoS4mFviE8r
laid down a dessert bowl filled with my favourite dessert in front of 49Please respect copyright.PENANATCp2WDKJ8X
me.copyright protection45PENANAXCbFqePlK249Please respect copyright.PENANAQ4Gl889s7O

"This is the most excited I've seen you today, Sam," said Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANAwxEbFM1oAH49Please respect copyright.PENANABwHFTmbb1j

"It's because chocolate moussé is her favourite dessert," said 49Please respect copyright.PENANACUV2WSFHBN
Daniel. "Give her that and she would become best friends with you."copyright protection45PENANAEqfv2rwtxa49Please respect copyright.PENANAFsSlN0tXsB

"I'll keep that in mind," said TOP.copyright protection45PENANAGvNSbd60zR49Please respect copyright.PENANAL48tJ1PVdQ

I didn't wait for everyone to get their own share of dessert. As soon49Please respect copyright.PENANAeQLaSI2ypD
as I got mine, I got a dessert spoon and started to eat the cold 49Please respect copyright.PENANAl45eqTeUQH
dessert. Mmmm, I closed my eyes as I took it in my mouth and for once, I49Please respect copyright.PENANAvCLE5vFUqT
felt like I was in heaven.copyright protection45PENANA25oHg4uht549Please respect copyright.PENANALFJxPCfRaE

"This is so good," I said, with my eyes closed as I savoured the chocolate in my mouth.copyright protection45PENANAZ7vfDyGa2e49Please respect copyright.PENANAvvJAJ9uY3k

"Be careful though," said G-Dragon. "You're not supposed to be eating cold stuff when you've a cold and a cough."copyright protection45PENANAkJJ7BVlIVV49Please respect copyright.PENANAGzWrd1XTWo

"I don't care," I said as I opened my eyes and smiled at G-Dragon. "I would end up with a bad sore throat and I wouldn't care."copyright protection45PENANAzY0YGh2ayw49Please respect copyright.PENANANI3wfS8uKi

G-Dragon smiled back at me and I realised that I wasn't mad at him 49Please respect copyright.PENANA9fOTQy2kx6
anymore. It looked like I really couldn't stay mad at him for long. And I49Please respect copyright.PENANAEdGBETDCNz
was glad that all the hate faded away.copyright protection45PENANAfyDLNhjusl49Please respect copyright.PENANA0Ai37xWf2H

After dessert, we all just sat there and started to chat. For once, 49Please respect copyright.PENANAycWn6NW97t
it felt really good to be on speaking terms with everyone again. We were49Please respect copyright.PENANAfMGVokP1XD
soon talking about what happened yesterday. After going through all 49Please respect copyright.PENANAAXdS1kqYAt
that and talking about it, it all seemed rather funny and we all laughed49Please respect copyright.PENANAF9GCwMptVx
about it. Although, the part where G-Dragon had made me dive into the 49Please respect copyright.PENANAWbkC7IXWJU
pool seemed to hurt a little, I knew I would grow out of it someday.copyright protection45PENANAJM4tUFognk49Please respect copyright.PENANAAjSNcT8DRJ

"Hey, may I ask?" Seungri asked. "How did Lee manage to keep our managers at YG for so long?"copyright protection45PENANAbXjbW0sYa149Please respect copyright.PENANA7xSO9pAySw

"Not sure, I'll make sure I ask her later on," I said.copyright protection45PENANAuqA8boqvTS49Please respect copyright.PENANA6OHqrO8oLR

"Yesterday, was just hilarious," said Zoey, wiping away a fake tear after laughing. "We should try that again some time."copyright protection45PENANAQCFV6ABuRZ49Please respect copyright.PENANAilba9o4i2W

"But this time, not at the water park," I said.copyright protection45PENANAP2W8eT8HRj49Please respect copyright.PENANA19tUXCjybc

"Then where?" Daesung asked. "The water park was so much fun."copyright protection45PENANAJmKkvWIWrB49Please respect copyright.PENANA4i1MIsBRQn

"I suggest we try to figure that out later," I said. "We have stuff to work on."copyright protection45PENANAPieuek5PPW49Please respect copyright.PENANAI9IUkSipak

"What stuff?" TOP asked.copyright protection45PENANAPEZMNeFWWx49Please respect copyright.PENANAlcuO6rrp0D

"The song. Don't tell me you all forgot?"copyright protection45PENANAgFU0ZpWIlo49Please respect copyright.PENANAC4VDRE5svW

"Oh, the song!" Mike slapped his forehead. "I even forgot about that."copyright protection45PENANAkbHzGWTLLI49Please respect copyright.PENANAPe6y8rrrQB

"I thought both you and G-Dragon were going to work on it," said Christine.copyright protection45PENANAIBnInaW26S49Please respect copyright.PENANALcNg0THsjI

"Ya, but I have a better idea,"  I said.copyright protection45PENANAzmytnyTkgf49Please respect copyright.PENANA6VN2zEGF7c

I felt Taeyang look at me and I turned to look at him.copyright protection45PENANAJBqqa6m3S849Please respect copyright.PENANACWrIvz9W10

"Are you really going through with that?" Taeyang asked, as he whispered.copyright protection45PENANAMAKaj7lfas49Please respect copyright.PENANAxNcl3dfLGy

"I don't think that's a big deal, is it?" I whispered back. "It's not49Please respect copyright.PENANAtMugP3UwJ1
like I'm mad anymore. After thinking over it, I think it's a good 49Please respect copyright.PENANAIlY93tJdpK
idea."copyright protection45PENANA8JPGdcf7ww49Please respect copyright.PENANAeXyqjBEymk

"Wait, what's going on?" G-Dragon asked, as he noticed Taeyang and I 49Please respect copyright.PENANA7P7C5WGZsp
whispering to each other. "And what idea have you come up with for the 49Please respect copyright.PENANA1bKZlOt42T
song?"copyright protection45PENANAmg7NGhU3lM49Please respect copyright.PENANAPhRnIaZmJl

"I thought we should all work on the lyrics together. I feel it will 49Please respect copyright.PENANAGQaOtfK9fc
be a lot better if we all bring out our ideas for and put them as 49Please respect copyright.PENANAzgojgJ8JOb
lyrics."copyright protection45PENANAc8nWjG4EVe49Please respect copyright.PENANACDst1aE1xn

"But why do we have to put our heads together if there is you and G-Dragon who are better at song writing?" TOP asked.copyright protection45PENANA64XVLb70iE49Please respect copyright.PENANAmeew2HMMR2

"I don't know, I feel we have to put our all in the song by coming up49Please respect copyright.PENANAZqjnKz6SjU
with lyrics from everyone. It might sound a little strange, but we all 49Please respect copyright.PENANA4WyxpAI4Bf
have to help each other out on this. If there is anyone objecting to 49Please respect copyright.PENANArYtGvvnhie
this idea, you're free to do so."copyright protection45PENANAwFUDsBVnFh49Please respect copyright.PENANAkhFDFpdMix

"I don't get it though," said G-Dragon, as he leaned back on his 49Please respect copyright.PENANAHntfUTQCXs
chair and stared at me. "What made you come up with this idea when we 49Please respect copyright.PENANARoql4WQse8
already agreed on who will write the lyrics?"copyright protection45PENANA9SqwOJdTn949Please respect copyright.PENANAHyqmc5MpS4

"I don't know, it kind of felt right, I think," I said.copyright protection45PENANA7td5oYgwYz49Please respect copyright.PENANAXzrqOmjFYg

"You think?" G-Dragon now raised his eyebrow at me. "Is there something you aren't telling us?"copyright protection45PENANAbvf58HH45m49Please respect copyright.PENANA8QEzbJv2bJ

This time, I also raised an eyebrow. To be honest, when I had told 49Please respect copyright.PENANAbTiBguH2Uz
Taeyang about my idea earlier, it was clearly so as to avoid G-Dragon at49Please respect copyright.PENANA7R8yhXUADT
all costs. But now that I had put my anger aside, it was now for a 49Please respect copyright.PENANARLKwkVfQYr
whole different purpose.copyright protection45PENANAmeeML3vYWS49Please respect copyright.PENANAA9kSLBmsDh

"What makes you think I have other intentions?" I asked.copyright protection45PENANA74ml9Ljphi49Please respect copyright.PENANA2K8bjq8e1M

"Maybe you might still be mad at G-Dragon," Zoey blurted out.copyright protection45PENANAZsNeyWWf1149Please respect copyright.PENANA7SxRoSNEJL

I sighed. Great! These were the times you wished Zoey never had such a big mouth.copyright protection45PENANACnfR91VEZS49Please respect copyright.PENANA5jVqbG1y9F

"Is that true? Are you still mad at me?" G-Dragon asked.copyright protection45PENANAx7WUt5FMvW49Please respect copyright.PENANAPbpYmIpvWq

"No, not any more," I answered. "At first I was, but now I'm over with what happened yesterday."copyright protection45PENANA5upTIXQEdR49Please respect copyright.PENANAh4jOWIHKmq

"Or are you still mad that you don't want to work on the lyrics with me?"copyright protection45PENANAGPeVHoXC3X49Please respect copyright.PENANAwsJrTV8Vth

By the way G-Dragon spoke, I could tell he was hurting. But it was 49Please respect copyright.PENANAAjt0hPIGkF
pretty hard to try to convince him that yes, I was mad at first and I 49Please respect copyright.PENANA7CKqrH98rv
wanted to avoid him. And no, since I'm no longer mad at him any more, 49Please respect copyright.PENANAzYXjqReyMI
the idea of all of us working on the lyrics for the song seemed like a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAQm1jmj850t
good idea.copyright protection45PENANAuB4qvxwak149Please respect copyright.PENANAL85wzwdIFF

"I just told you, I'm not mad anymore."copyright protection45PENANA7qvxkduaSI49Please respect copyright.PENANAdfEby42NDO

"Why is it that I don't believe you?"copyright protection45PENANA2yyhufFsRJ49Please respect copyright.PENANAwtbyMyRVES

"Maybe, it's because you're objecting to my idea and you just want to make up what would be a valid reason for it."copyright protection45PENANApmkuMP1j0m49Please respect copyright.PENANApq0uWz1ahH

"Mmm, looking at it through Sam's point of view, that kind of makes sense," said Daniel.copyright protection45PENANAk8NPF739iW49Please respect copyright.PENANAQvWuGvzJjc

"Then why come up with this in the first place?" Zoey asked. copyright protection45PENANASkvqB0Fhsw49Please respect copyright.PENANAyPFKnsifnX

"I already told you, I just think it's a good idea," I repeated.copyright protection45PENANA0RTklGanZb49Please respect copyright.PENANA7Mn7hjHjuZ

"Well, I'm not up for it," said G-Dragon folding his arms. "I object."copyright protection45PENANAKjjx8YFc8X49Please respect copyright.PENANA1kuYPbtoVM

"Well, you should have said that instead of blaming me for coming up with this as an excuse."copyright protection45PENANA80hDqTD5a649Please respect copyright.PENANAAtCgeZJwe7

"I think you are, and you're not telling us."copyright protection45PENANACaXwvjcGHb49Please respect copyright.PENANAulTRtbbbvF

"What truth?" I asked.copyright protection45PENANAms8jYEDalk49Please respect copyright.PENANAVtYPlr1wCx

"Okay, guys this is getting a little out of hand," said Taeyang. "Don't forget, we aren't the only ones here."copyright protection45PENANAmdMRoLuyqk49Please respect copyright.PENANAcM4crz2hyg

Taeyang was right. I was so caught up in the argument with G-Dragon, I49Please respect copyright.PENANA2j5hHbJ50J
forgot that we were in the hotel dining room. I looked around us and a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAHVdFLy7N5J
few heads from other tables turned to ours. It seemed like our argument 49Please respect copyright.PENANAkhwouYYwfw
caught some people's attention.copyright protection45PENANAQ2i9WUTJaJ49Please respect copyright.PENANAMhQSyx3iD3

"Tae's right," I said. "We shouldn't be arguing, much less here."copyright protection45PENANAHwbQQavukQ49Please respect copyright.PENANA2kZf0KO7yT

"Then let's conclude on this once and for all then," said Deasung. "Those who favour Sam's idea, raise your hand."copyright protection45PENANAOH3Aysm21M49Please respect copyright.PENANARTaniElgbB

Taeyang, Daesung, Daniel and Mike, raised their hands. That meant 49Please respect copyright.PENANAMXTCPsaSKN
Zoey, TOP, Seungri and Christine were on G-Dragon's side. What a bummer!copyright protection45PENANAnRPG1LAVvL49Please respect copyright.PENANAWN8V38GRfe

"Whoops, looks like it's a tie," said Zoey playfully with a smirk.copyright protection45PENANAEdiP48ZzDk49Please respect copyright.PENANAL67WupBQGM

"It's not funny, Zoey," I said, almost frowning.copyright protection45PENANAqr2u2AWpDX49Please respect copyright.PENANArsKk5AMftx

"Well, this just got serious," said Seungri, scratching his head.copyright protection45PENANAc0P1GRNhMj49Please respect copyright.PENANA3plbkoj0gy

"It's a tie, so I suggest we-" I was then interrupted by G-Dragon.copyright protection45PENANA3rxlgBugb749Please respect copyright.PENANAf1FmX9Mz0t

"No, this time you aren't going to say or suggest anything," said G-Dragon.copyright protection45PENANABBzD6Ce31R49Please respect copyright.PENANAlrV5M0Fzg8

"But I-" copyright protection45PENANA1dSQfzI2Rv49Please respect copyright.PENANA7jysuSQNT7

"Sam, sshh," said Zoey, pressing her index finger to her lips, 49Please respect copyright.PENANAm882v6biFb
telling me to keep quiet. "You've talked way too much, don't you think?"copyright protection45PENANAmUWTfduKtF49Please respect copyright.PENANAL1DG6qHMZY

That felt like a slap in the face and I felt my face burn up in 49Please respect copyright.PENANAV6htyLlpze
embarrassment. It looked like the tables had turned on me today. At 49Please respect copyright.PENANAxWnGYSMaas
first I was mad at G-Dragon and the other Toxins, but now, I was the one49Please respect copyright.PENANAmVtZCAqjnp
pissing everyone off. What happened to me being the leader? I know 49Please respect copyright.PENANAhiwzM5l8vV
G-Dragon was older, but what about what I thought was appropriate for 49Please respect copyright.PENANAn2RKIPCv0M
the whole group?copyright protection45PENANAR5hrIn3Wq549Please respect copyright.PENANAYmIrmk2MEp

"I suggest we think about it and when we meet tomorrow, we vote over it again," said G-Dragon.copyright protection45PENANAOriHixg1A749Please respect copyright.PENANAcWIIvuNQDi

"That's fine with me," said Mike.copyright protection45PENANAwW1tPhGk1a49Please respect copyright.PENANAL0lDK3snzt

Everyone else agreed, except me since I was told not to say a word. I49Please respect copyright.PENANA9xPRZcc2YQ
personally also thought it was a good idea to try and think things 49Please respect copyright.PENANAraMaThFH8i
through. But what if it didn't work out tomorrow? What would we do then?49Please respect copyright.PENANAZUilx3p0qY
I had a terrible feeling that things weren't going to go as planned and49Please respect copyright.PENANAtAvisvuExt
we needed a Plan B, just in case.copyright protection45PENANA0TfhkYFnV649Please respect copyright.PENANAuZEh9xzPeH

"Okay, then, we will meet tomorrow," said G-Dragon as he stood up to leave.copyright protection45PENANAsJyLqRjHSU49Please respect copyright.PENANA7eBqA8tZ8U

"But I've something to say," I blurted out.copyright protection45PENANAOpQQSG8y0949Please respect copyright.PENANAXCutVWYpBv

"Not now, Sam, we will meet tomorrow," said G-Dragon as he looked at 49Please respect copyright.PENANAT6vynE5Xtk
me and walked away from the table heading for the door. I had to admit, 49Please respect copyright.PENANAEBzg19pv8x
the way he looked at me gave me goosebumps.copyright protection45PENANAJ13YjnWYLS49Please respect copyright.PENANAp69UA4Ryut

"Way to go, Sam," said Zoey, as she also stood up from the table. "You just made him upset. I need to go calm him down."copyright protection45PENANA5eBDZ2ujJm49Please respect copyright.PENANA4ozzWXe2UI

Zoey went after G-Dragon and I sat back on my chair, feeling defeated and powerless. copyright protection45PENANAdyL3pEKxcL49Please respect copyright.PENANAnzkWPm6eRf

One by one everyone started to leave the table without even saying a 49Please respect copyright.PENANAMhlWcW13uw
word. It was awkward with the argument that had taken place earlier, and49Please respect copyright.PENANAwzU69R3oTY
saying something didn't seem appropriate.copyright protection45PENANAHVMLU58R4U49Please respect copyright.PENANA7hxrdmNkAF

I was soon left with Taeyang on the table and I looked at him, wondering why he hadn't left.copyright protection45PENANAJ98lN8ohr849Please respect copyright.PENANAznXVj9Rkdm

"Aren't you supposed to have left by now?" I asked.copyright protection45PENANAEEGqI64tEh49Please respect copyright.PENANAQKWLQ6CUuw

"And leave you all alone? No way," said Taeyang.copyright protection45PENANAemd1786fZb49Please respect copyright.PENANASBNq20MQln
