My body ached all over 48Please respect copyright.PENANAtYDdnpspCX
when I finally woke up. My eyes slowly opened and a flash of light above48Please respect copyright.PENANAhrDKucWlGp
me was blinding that I had to shield my eyes with my hand. When my eyes48Please respect copyright.PENANAaEs7TLcvD1
adjusted to the light, I sat up and I could tell I hadn't slept on my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAk60YknnMM0
bed.copyright protection44PENANAqfnoQoOfsZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAK4rnOVALgh

I scratched my head as I48Please respect copyright.PENANAarVCzOnMk0
slowly took in my surrounding. I had slept in the lounge on the floor. I48Please respect copyright.PENANANF7ODrb0eY
closed my eyes and murmured to myself. Collins was going to kill me if 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0Z3snRnXDE
he found me here.copyright protection44PENANA6eoR1NSnku48Please respect copyright.PENANAeN5aqFYNrj

I slowly stood up and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOfYW3BofCC
realised that I had been covered with a blanket when it dropped to the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAeDCh6Z9tWM
floor. Lee must have found me sleeping and covered me it. So thoughtful 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8bzdlZTkNk
of her. And the guitar laid on the couch.copyright protection44PENANAqk9VjgO8GD48Please respect copyright.PENANADCzCyDeWSR

"Morning, sleepy head," came Collins' voice behind me.copyright protection44PENANA57TtwJSkZk48Please respect copyright.PENANAz6ubnBax47

I almost jumped in 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjciSqESjYF
fright when I turned around. I found Collins sitting by the dining 48Please respect copyright.PENANAECideQQsNJ
table, drinking a hot cup of coffee and looking at his tablet. He was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjnPOydpJKu
obviously reading the news online.copyright protection44PENANAj5yHWzvOWQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAQ3H9W8NPrM

"Hey, Collins," I replied as I walked over to him.copyright protection44PENANAjnasitI6Cp48Please respect copyright.PENANAu6oNjCEa5r

"What did we say about working on the song the whole night?" Collins asked, still looking at his tablet.copyright protection44PENANAKIwDb2n4mm48Please respect copyright.PENANAToOJdnXD7I

"'Don't tire yourself 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7YMO7IXVxo
out and just go to sleep,'" I said, remembering what Collins had told me48Please respect copyright.PENANAH2u6POJuZO
last night since I refused to go to sleep when I arrived.copyright protection44PENANAoGrXoowTdt48Please respect copyright.PENANAVTdKCq8A4f

"And you didn't listen to me and you kept on playing your guitar the whole night. Your song sounds incredible, by the way."copyright protection44PENANAKwQUY8oGf048Please respect copyright.PENANAibd40lNXhl

"Oh, you were listening?"copyright protection44PENANA6ZJCDUF0Y148Please respect copyright.PENANAmYoR5eGOIF

"Ya, you kept on playing48Please respect copyright.PENANACDyPobgwLk
until I couldn't hear you play anymore. I came to check up on you and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAL4wZ9xlWuC
you were hugging the guitar like a teddy bear."copyright protection44PENANAmnINk6cR0p48Please respect copyright.PENANAiRAGJGUpuC

"Thanks, Collins." I smiled at him.copyright protection44PENANAlKVbEUk2Bz48Please respect copyright.PENANA46gDWEPdaB

"For what?" Collins asked as he looked at me.copyright protection44PENANA3HzMkcHZdG48Please respect copyright.PENANAyWF5WOChL7

"For covering me with a blanket."copyright protection44PENANA1z3JnoPzfP48Please respect copyright.PENANAT3ZuJIaE7E

Collins looked at me 48Please respect copyright.PENANAgcLwQIaFWl
with his eyebrow raised and smiled. "Go take a shower. We need to leave 48Please respect copyright.PENANAguiWAfLcww
for YG. Yang Hyun-suk also needs to hear the song."copyright protection44PENANAYBAUMeO7hp48Please respect copyright.PENANAkqAjUk25Y9

"Okay." I smiled as I nodded.copyright protection44PENANAHk7g7rtOqG48Please respect copyright.PENANAKfmwMceXRb

"Morning, people," said Lee as she came into the lounge. "It feels really weird these guys aren't here. The place is so quiet."copyright protection44PENANAvrgyaDX0cd48Please respect copyright.PENANAi8FB4gQQsn

"I know," I said. "I really miss them."copyright protection44PENANAQbOq6BFUIX48Please respect copyright.PENANAnNNX7Ii9Oh

"Me too."copyright protection44PENANAkpirGpS9ej48Please respect copyright.PENANAjywF4iRjfJ

"I don't," said Collins as he sipped some of his coffee.copyright protection44PENANAQJK6iVKfWW48Please respect copyright.PENANAuyRaaWq1MT

Lee and I threw Collins angry glances. Collins chuckled to himself.copyright protection44PENANAtM8hdeST9B48Please respect copyright.PENANAo9Hc7OVqXK

"Going to take a shower," I said.copyright protection44PENANAQt08VHyNQM48Please respect copyright.PENANAHgieWnxNHN

"You go do that," said Lee. "I'll order us some breakfast."copyright protection44PENANA6HwROONy4J48Please respect copyright.PENANAxcmpmwlNx8

After I freshened myself48Please respect copyright.PENANAHWio9pd5Pb
up, I went back to the lounge. I still found Lee and Collins by the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPxs8Lowicd
dining table. Lee was having her usual toast and eggs for breakfast, and48Please respect copyright.PENANA5Jqr8NYuAw
Collins was still on his tablet.copyright protection44PENANAvxwDPKSHD148Please respect copyright.PENANACitVHDlUIa

"Are you going to keep on reading the news the whole morning?" I asked as I took a seat at the table.copyright protection44PENANAiuvjCq0bdR48Please respect copyright.PENANA5yIxGtVdM7

"Nope. Just looking at 48Please respect copyright.PENANArSRRkZEiuf
messages," Collins replied. "Zoey sent me one. She said she will be 48Please respect copyright.PENANAO7yi2fVn9E
coming back late at night with the others."copyright protection44PENANAXkytcmiZUm48Please respect copyright.PENANAyecgMTKH6w

"Are they having a good time?" I got a slice of bread that laid on the middle of the table and was applying marmalade on it.copyright protection44PENANAJqUf3J0VqD48Please respect copyright.PENANAPxoHoIG31b

"You know Zoey. She doesn't take any opportunity for granted when she is in some glamorous place."copyright protection44PENANAXJ8s3LS3W648Please respect copyright.PENANAjQiR8k63If

"True." I shrugged as I got another slice of bread.copyright protection44PENANAVTrunDRFDM48Please respect copyright.PENANAHguUwgNhYT

"She even sent Collins a picture," said Lee. She turned to face Collins as she jerked her head. "Show her."copyright protection44PENANA2ncWCfFDb648Please respect copyright.PENANANOrcvQVcUW

Collins handed his 48Please respect copyright.PENANAndNF4V0bZI
tablet over to me and I took it. Zoey took a selfie of herself with the 48Please respect copyright.PENANArHZVBvcpNa
other Toxins, G-Dragon and TOP behind her. They were all cheering and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjAYKNuAIGu
raising their hands up in the air. I smiled. Looks like they were really48Please respect copyright.PENANAF4IsKNoKYn
having a great time.copyright protection44PENANAh9QpBTauX648Please respect copyright.PENANAtp4slGYx5L

"Is it me or is that the Eiffle Tower behind them?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAAS01nnFe3j48Please respect copyright.PENANAHomG99aJSR

"It sure is," said Lee. Raising a cup of coffee to her lips.copyright protection44PENANA05Gc1jsHWE48Please respect copyright.PENANAeyVW1GJprI

I mumbled. I had always wanted to go to Paris and see the Eiffle Tower. These guys were so lucky. Boo hoo for me.copyright protection44PENANAOdNEDpxNTv48Please respect copyright.PENANAMU7RnsylZD

"They should have as 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7H2unbEyVw
much fun as they could possibly can," said Collins as I gave him back 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqa5m762Rvt
the tablet. "They are in for a lovely treat."copyright protection44PENANAUuoUwLicZl48Please respect copyright.PENANAzioHaLaI7a

"What? Is it about the song?" I looked at Collins.copyright protection44PENANAv0rcctvFas48Please respect copyright.PENANAmeRoJfAnOw

"No, it's not about the 48Please respect copyright.PENANATeGZAN5DEB
song. They already know they have a lot of work to do with the song when48Please respect copyright.PENANA7dTvV3h5Mo
they get back. I'm talking about something else."copyright protection44PENANAkYG8Djxa7r48Please respect copyright.PENANAf8D7xmm8Ka

I looked at Lee who sat 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEDpkD07IDM
opposite me. I gave her a look that told her to tell me what Collins 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjK0dgVgy03
meant. But she looked at me with a worried expression. That meant she 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXgbBnJYJRI
didn't even have a clue of what Collins was talking about.copyright protection44PENANAG1W4WsPeEP48Please respect copyright.PENANAUvlkPYkXHY

"What are you talking about Collins?" I asked as I poured myself a cup of coffee.copyright protection44PENANAzaP1m2uSIE48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ1JKeZFvxG

"Oh, you will see," said Collins with a huge grin on his face.copyright protection44PENANAk2D0agkIrr48Please respect copyright.PENANAyvWK6jt43k

I almost shuddered when 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMYP8iF7CDO
Collins smiled. I'd never liked that smile. That only meant Collins had 48Please respect copyright.PENANABmPk73kMzS
something up his sleeve and I didn't like it.copyright protection44PENANA98t5cpy1Dd48Please respect copyright.PENANAt7npRtJkxM

"You can tell us, Collins. I won't tell the others."copyright protection44PENANARdnGeKIICq48Please respect copyright.PENANAFjKur3ayGN

"If I tell you, I'll 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnhacBhgW4Q
just ruin everything. Just sit back and wait for things to happen. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOxXbWPEG9b
Finish your breakfast. We will be out of this place in a few minutes."copyright protection44PENANAnWt1XDihmK48Please respect copyright.PENANAsOvdjWgtvX

Collins got up from his 48Please respect copyright.PENANAhSer5QJmMN
chair and walked away with a satisfied look on his face. How I wish I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcAk9MhYqX8
knew what he was thinking. Whatever he planned for us seemed rather 48Please respect copyright.PENANACqX8Dh5ULA
amusing to him and might turn out bad for some of us.copyright protection44PENANAIvSbB4Ba6f48Please respect copyright.PENANAS2t6tzXdVJ

"What do you know?" I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA07kkh6Cgxz
asked Lee, immediately I knew that Collins was in his room. I leaned 48Please respect copyright.PENANApaZmiDEoyp
forward to look at her straight in the eye. I seemed more like a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYqrsxV1u8W
detective asking questions to a criminal.copyright protection44PENANAnXsKEHumq648Please respect copyright.PENANAe84ytmF5Dd

"I don't know," Lee 48Please respect copyright.PENANAF2oFpGj35R
replied with a shocked look on her face. "I am as surprised as you are. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAs3iUwPPxjX
And besides, I wasn't with Collins the whole day of yesterday."copyright protection44PENANANN3gP0U7hg48Please respect copyright.PENANAux6y6zVMFy

I knew something was up 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0lBo005j4a
when Collins wasn't around yesterday. I wondered what he and Yang 48Please respect copyright.PENANAbxetrKigiC
Hyun-suk had planned this time. Collins had a happy look on his face.copyright protection44PENANAR0MJcnONyV48Please respect copyright.PENANAeMaklhUg4A

"This is not good," I said as I leaned back on my seat.copyright protection44PENANA2VSvGwcaTC48Please respect copyright.PENANAP4VqsWqxfv

"I don't think it's that bad," said Lee. "Whatever they have planned, will be okay. Even for you."copyright protection44PENANAhHqkXglSoD48Please respect copyright.PENANAHr2VVtGdKY

"Well, hopefully." I blew out a puff of air and shook my head as I thought of what happened to G-Dragon and I yesterday.copyright protection44PENANA8fDUZQiOEQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAQYK1j6idnm

"Hey, what's wrong?"copyright protection44PENANAJGMCcs9pC348Please respect copyright.PENANANcrJCTF3qU

"I think G-Dragon and I aren't on good terms again."copyright protection44PENANA2UKtfIJAA748Please respect copyright.PENANAz8mB4h5KvP

"What? What happened?" Lee looked shocked and then again, confused.copyright protection44PENANAdInRDnHVbl48Please respect copyright.PENANAJmOtn7AGlX

"Things were going so well before things went down the drain when Zoey and TOP came to YG yesterday."copyright protection44PENANAMU2yxf0GED48Please respect copyright.PENANA38auRMnwQO

Lee leaned her head backwards and let out a huge murmuring sound. "Don't tell me Zoey ruined everything."copyright protection44PENANAJGxt9NcTnM48Please respect copyright.PENANArpXO1156MB

"Well, kind of," I said 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWvXKZkRz0c
as I thought of what happened and who to blame. "It's complicated. And 48Please respect copyright.PENANAx3lHyduWKl
to be honest, I don't who to blame. But it wasn't entirely their fault."copyright protection44PENANA0Bunt7Kb3W48Please respect copyright.PENANAKcLI0MJ6Tw

"Eat up. You will need all the energy to sing that song. We'll talk about this later."copyright protection44PENANAwPRzooOo5t48Please respect copyright.PENANAHP1Ez1YrBZ

"Okay."copyright protection44PENANA2OaAiknudL48Please respect copyright.PENANAE830QBekxY

I was just done eating my breakfast when Collins came to tell us that it was time to go. I carried the guitar and my notebook.copyright protection44PENANAhdnLBQTm1X48Please respect copyright.PENANAFiaq0bdKh6

Lee, Collins and I soon 48Please respect copyright.PENANAgYViCvjBXU
left the hotel and we were at YG. To be honest, I felt kind of nervous. I48Please respect copyright.PENANAAC3ECTfQeN
was going to perform the song in front of Collins and Yang Hyun-suk but48Please respect copyright.PENANAOT5Zk6axQr
it felt like I was going on the X Factor auditions just to be judged 48Please respect copyright.PENANAD6qzp25IE2
afterwards. Collins did say the song sounded amazing. I just wondered 48Please respect copyright.PENANADeEHThA87O
what Yang Hyun-suk would say.copyright protection44PENANAiyN98byXAD48Please respect copyright.PENANAWWI2W386AZ

I was waiting in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAye6YOv1TdF
recording studio, waiting for Collins and Yang Hyun-suk. I kept telling 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWRUAyNS9WZ
myself that everything was going to be alright and I shouldn't worry 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYSWGUSK3Zl
because I had gone through all of this several times. But today, I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2yz8xoDziR
edgy and my heart was beating so fast.copyright protection44PENANAqCsAdKUAf848Please respect copyright.PENANAfeJ9PhXHqT

I was pacing up and down48Please respect copyright.PENANAHoME5HxPLw
with agitation written all over my face when the door to the studio 48Please respect copyright.PENANAbN5LWC9Acr
opened. I turned to the door and Lee came in with Taeyang and his 48Please respect copyright.PENANAsrGbAwtyeT
girlfriend, Hyo-rin. Well, that was a surprise. I never thought I would 48Please respect copyright.PENANAsWieAoW7eH
ever meet Hyo-rin again. Well, not today when I'm about to sing a song 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEpvJarmk2y
and I was so nervous.copyright protection44PENANAlwlIiXzcjA48Please respect copyright.PENANAMuZsFAZ88d

"Here she is," said Lee,48Please respect copyright.PENANA2A9lPJJLRY
turning to face Taeyang and Hyo-rin. "I've tried to calm her down but 48Please respect copyright.PENANAsvnYfyqBSs
she can't stop pacing up and down like an ant. Maybe she will listen to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAaEW97CJ6KS
you, Tae."copyright protection44PENANA9C9XLh8jeJ48Please respect copyright.PENANAjNst8hdS24

I frowned at Lee and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQvAeuPMUrF
wanted to snap at her but I brushed it off. She hadn't even made an 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmBjiLrVvxG
effort to try and calm me down. She had left me all alone. What a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnRtPkC7yva
friend.copyright protection44PENANAXFmpgzab9q48Please respect copyright.PENANAClGdAa2n4u

"Hi, Tae," I said and walked over to Hyo-rin and gave her a hug.copyright protection44PENANAjvXFefCNsW48Please respect copyright.PENANA2q5mJRNEml

"I never thought I would see you again," I said to Hyo-rin with a smile after I hugged her.copyright protection44PENANAoCyyzkPHE448Please respect copyright.PENANAkJcOzxqG5V

"I told Taeyang that I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQIhxVSHYgL
wanted to see you," said Hyo-rin. "Looks like I decided to come and see 48Please respect copyright.PENANAsjcyFVptAL
you at the right time when you're about to sing the song."copyright protection44PENANArBJN0Zmbbw48Please respect copyright.PENANAOVv0J4yaKD

"Our manager called me 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6Blo8hhQfx
to come to the studio and listen to the song," said Taeyang, answering 48Please respect copyright.PENANABIQOgvKFZk
the puzzled look on my face. "Hyo-rin came to see me and heard my 48Please respect copyright.PENANArNfWOZ0maL
conversation on the phone. That's why she wanted to come and see you."copyright protection44PENANABu1y9gNM3g48Please respect copyright.PENANA0gnlFwDWmS

"Thanks," I said. "Maybe with you guys around I might just calm down a little bit."copyright protection44PENANAIsSh0rCQ9g48Please respect copyright.PENANAtYAjMQPwwO

"I'll go and check on the managers and see what taking them so long," said Lee as she started to head out of the room.copyright protection44PENANAUASEoSDK3P48Please respect copyright.PENANARXC7Uq6UNg

I wanted to call out to her and tell her to let it be. I didn't want our managers here just yet. But she had already left.copyright protection44PENANAhFjjdtz1fD48Please respect copyright.PENANAGNx39cAM8X

"So, where are the others?" Hyo-rin asked as she took a seat on the comfortable leather couch and Taeyang followed.copyright protection44PENANAhY59g6BSWL48Please respect copyright.PENANAFBVfVI6KfD

"They left for Paris," I answered. I was still standing with my arms folded.copyright protection44PENANA8Rl0vKT9vX48Please respect copyright.PENANAz6BbdvCkqq

"Oh, they left with GD," said Taeyang. "He told me last night."copyright protection44PENANAYMCi5PLEQ148Please respect copyright.PENANAB7d8bnkLat

"Ya, these guys are having a ton of fun right now," I said as I looked at my fingers.copyright protection44PENANAi8ZoiguT8r48Please respect copyright.PENANAIP5E50ncLC

"But how come you didn't go with them?" Hyo-rin asked.copyright protection44PENANAEgi0hOKbXf48Please respect copyright.PENANAQkJrvXX8io

"I had the song to finish up. Trust me, it was not easy. But I had help before they could leave for Paris."copyright protection44PENANA8V1Ld7BZMs48Please respect copyright.PENANAyTvM1G9msk

"Looks like you're always the one stuck here working hard while the others go out and have fun."copyright protection44PENANA04A0sSgXMo48Please respect copyright.PENANAQbaVPfVdsG

"Ya. Looks like it." I smiled slightly.copyright protection44PENANAprFIrXwc8u48Please respect copyright.PENANAPi0zKwwHFO

"You managed to finish the song?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection44PENANArhpt2DAEDn48Please respect copyright.PENANA6dIB0Ki97K

"I did. Want to take a look at the lyrics?"copyright protection44PENANA6DrHEUzUSm48Please respect copyright.PENANAuXWESLUNZm

"Sure."copyright protection44PENANAihNY0fVwr348Please respect copyright.PENANAuOFvop2U7H

I gave Taeyang my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJdVrOVc75j
notebook and with Hyo-rin beside him, they looked at the lyrics 48Please respect copyright.PENANASzgOd8A7Wz
together. I couldn't help but smile at the two of them. They looked so 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuro9WMyYHF
cute together.copyright protection44PENANA0Tlqmn4X1H48Please respect copyright.PENANAFrSBTHw5OB

"I can't wait for you to sing the song for us," said Hyo-rin as she looked at me. "The lyrics sound really good."copyright protection44PENANAk8lMPZHpTz48Please respect copyright.PENANAoGaEuoN4vJ

"Thanks. I was singing 48Please respect copyright.PENANADZb297OH5v
the song while playing the guitar the whole night. I had to make it work48Please respect copyright.PENANAnLWfmPXTUL
on the second verse and since the song is mixed with English and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAujsEXX2L2y
Korean, I just had to make it perfect."copyright protection44PENANALcRzbRO6ng48Please respect copyright.PENANAvGyGIHNwoT

"You can read Korean?" Hyo-rin asked.copyright protection44PENANAao9wPvTTtV48Please respect copyright.PENANA1LFY12OYVI

"Well...not really," I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAKp1d4Za7Lc
said shrugging my shoulders. "I had to learn the Korean alphabet and the48Please respect copyright.PENANAFgSeWAVK6k
vowels. And with GD and TOP's help yesterday, I was fine with it."copyright protection44PENANABO4WATWhjQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAD86j78lV7g

"Wow. Pretty smart," said Hyo-rin with a smile on her face.copyright protection44PENANAR43IEeztlX48Please respect copyright.PENANAERGG4LFfSr

"Sam is totally smart," said Taeyang. "And this song is going to be a huge hit."copyright protection44PENANAJwlS2aoW4R48Please respect copyright.PENANAryHkMDUIo1

I couldn't help but smile at their sweet compliments. That made me forget about my fear. For now.copyright protection44PENANASFGWCgQzy948Please respect copyright.PENANA31a9khiGcp

The door suddenly flew open and Seungri and Daesung came in. Seungri rushed to hug me when he first saw me.copyright protection44PENANAppes7SHHm248Please respect copyright.PENANAXQhExmpcBh

"Hey, I missed you so much," said Seungri.copyright protection44PENANAE5z0YBbmxf48Please respect copyright.PENANAD3PlnCZikn

"Ya, me too," I said as I tried to breathe. Seungri always hugged me so tight.copyright protection44PENANAeqVUmxbd7J48Please respect copyright.PENANAkoouyJMQqY

"Hey, Sam," said Daesung as he came over to hug me.copyright protection44PENANAmw8BZgtGXP48Please respect copyright.PENANAgnPx1mTrzv

"Hi," I blushed when we hugged and I smiled like a fool.copyright protection44PENANAJBViCTUNgr48Please respect copyright.PENANAIdzyzXbyfv

"So, when do we hear the song?" Seungri asked, looking so excited.copyright protection44PENANA2vSYqfwBsD48Please respect copyright.PENANAVzTk4s3Qiu

Before I could reply, a voice came at the door. Yang Hyun-suk's voice.copyright protection44PENANAlP9uq8KUPI48Please respect copyright.PENANAPySF6T2ZlC

"Right now."copyright protection44PENANAJyjFQVyKJP48Please respect copyright.PENANAv3Q4Cp2NXh

We all turned towards 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjSRdcWFgMX
the door. Yang Hyun-suk, Collins, Lee and one of YG's music producers 48Please respect copyright.PENANAKCwChCwkCR
came in. This was it. I couldn't help but feel my palms get so sweaty.copyright protection44PENANAcLk5JKkflM48Please respect copyright.PENANAW8VMdxbfl8

When everyone got 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwE1oRdkxt7
settled onto the couch, I sat facing them sitting on a long stool and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAueJ1R0Dnlg
holding the guitar. I looked on at the others and all I wanted was to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfhoa3BIfQ3
run out of the room.copyright protection44PENANASHC2b2aWW048Please respect copyright.PENANAnnIpLAC676

"We're ready when you're," said Yang Hyun-suk.copyright protection44PENANAEGyXlpTTaC48Please respect copyright.PENANAdClWDcXhAi

I nodded my head and my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxPzV0DwJSn
heart couldn't stop beating so hard. I tried to settle properly with the48Please respect copyright.PENANANgKvFw5iCd
guitar on my lap, but it felt so heavy like it was the first time when I48Please respect copyright.PENANApPPKMsXJKx
ever got to play it.copyright protection44PENANAJno3s8NMo948Please respect copyright.PENANA1hmBdmfK58

I felt a break of sweat 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7SpSo5oun1
would start to appear on my forehead. I blew out a puff of air and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHNQwyCZvmK
stared at the audience. Daesung gave me an encouraging smile and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2o1o0fLfZR
slightly smiled back. I relaxed myself for a bit and closed my eyes as I48Please respect copyright.PENANAo6KNZ9SnDg
strung the strings on the guitar.copyright protection44PENANAzgQbj2duYa48Please respect copyright.PENANApk3fRBSR7f

I started to sing as I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAB9DDyDSkTR
played the instrument. My fear soon left me as I sang. It was going well48Please respect copyright.PENANAchYW4X6XlJ
so far. Then I came to the second verse where most of the lyrics were 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdK4h0WTTO0
in Korean. I thought I would stumble and say something wrong but I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8q9M3IqW2j
didn't. Well, I hope so.copyright protection44PENANAuCQ2Abru5C48Please respect copyright.PENANAOeBNbGLhD6

As soon as I was done 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1RR68S21LR
singing the whole song, I looked up at everyone. I had been trying to 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1UhbHlT7iW
avoid their gaze the whole time so that I wouldn't really mess up with 48Please respect copyright.PENANAr6b3TnJEFn
the song. I did get a few glances of their faces here and there, but I 48Please respect copyright.PENANALGeCNnvQoh
was staring above their heads the whole time and closing my eyes. I just48Please respect copyright.PENANAHqcYCTkw1C
hoped they liked it.copyright protection44PENANA7OZvRrEFe248Please respect copyright.PENANAtsIEwC1ggG

The studio was still 48Please respect copyright.PENANAD2nSFafa0E
quiet. No one had said a word and I got scared. Wasn't it good enough? 48Please respect copyright.PENANArH5EGIx1ez
Why weren't they saying anything? I looked on at Yang Hyun-suk and he 48Please respect copyright.PENANADH1mmyYnOf
had a grim look on his face. Oh, no.copyright protection44PENANAPNjGZCId6G48Please respect copyright.PENANA4shskWCA7D

Yang Hyun-suk cleared 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfzkld13L2i
his throat. I knew he was going to speak first. Yikes! Not him. I would 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkGZm2lU0JJ
rather he said what he wanted to say last. I crossed my fingers.copyright protection44PENANAnAidDTp5nv48Please respect copyright.PENANAgObxgwuS6C

"Well, Sam," started Yang Hyun-suk. "The song was really....."copyright protection44PENANAHujH0b9ERn48Please respect copyright.PENANAvmbQHpSKaV

This was it. The hammer 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2uB2RDoLE8
blow to my career. I wanted to close my eyes as I waited for any hurtful48Please respect copyright.PENANAuUWGsccX5j
word ready to come out of his mouth. I knew it was going to sting.copyright protection44PENANAHGb0mbD4oJ48Please respect copyright.PENANAzBFKsm9k7k

"....incredible."copyright protection44PENANALMk40YXp3k48Please respect copyright.PENANAgaORdFvBra

I opened my eyes and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJW5GCySPvY
couldn't believe that word just came out of his mouth. I looked up at 48Please respect copyright.PENANA85zNP1aZmi
him and he started to clap his hands. The others followed. There was a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjDs8vGO0ig
round of applause in the room and I couldn't help but smile to myself. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAb2chIPPBEl
It was such a relief. I could finally breathe.copyright protection44PENANAVLPetPqCuh48Please respect copyright.PENANAzMq9AgaKfx

"I've to admit, when 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2zavHFcvGu
Collins told me that the song was good, I didn't believe him," said Yang48Please respect copyright.PENANALSwY9eNZPs
Hyun-suk, as he stood up from the couch. "But it was just incredible."copyright protection44PENANAZbYbbkmOpL48Please respect copyright.PENANAlpeLyO1Jzh

"Thank you," I said as I bowed my head.copyright protection44PENANAyaxTfxRcXV48Please respect copyright.PENANAhCQs8x7k3O

"You better start working on it," said Yang Hyun-suk. "Today."copyright protection44PENANAwSHl7abxMF48Please respect copyright.PENANAOPHkNRzBRp

"We sure will," said Taeyang as he came up to me. "That was mind blowing, Sam."copyright protection44PENANAPMQNY18kQy48Please respect copyright.PENANA3cOiXm7Z6H

"Thanks," I said as I jumped off the stool. "I hope my Korean was okay."copyright protection44PENANA5pJDiYaaa848Please respect copyright.PENANAgnj6PrEXLI

"Are you kidding me? You sounded amazing," said Seungri.copyright protection44PENANA6H0N37YeFL48Please respect copyright.PENANAMAxtUlluWc

"I agree," said Hyo-rin. "You sung in Korean like you've known that language your whole life."copyright protection44PENANAUuxKiwMrQC48Please respect copyright.PENANAT0oHjm4rla

I couldn't stop smiling 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8CxrJnTnkE
at the others. I kept on receiving praises from the others including 48Please respect copyright.PENANA56eDA9YWDV
Daesung who said that I had such a beautiful golden voice. I blushed and48Please respect copyright.PENANA8xWxegUjHg
told him that wasn't true. To me, there was a big difference between a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuPS2hBpaZK
good voice and a golden one.copyright protection44PENANAZW1IAkHKuR48Please respect copyright.PENANAP5R4IreHnS

Immediately our managers48Please respect copyright.PENANACwpz4EPYXw
left with Lee, we went over to join the music producer by the audio 48Please respect copyright.PENANAesm6uEITOH
engines and the multi track console. Above the console was a huge window48Please respect copyright.PENANADEMvIvWXck
that showed the live room where we the artists sing and play any 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPPReoVTeTR
musical instruments. copyright protection44PENANATAzToC1mRG48Please respect copyright.PENANAL7j7eNLWHA

This was always the hard48Please respect copyright.PENANAEleqQXWNU8
part of producing a track. Making the melodies and to find the right 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8KXZZmUSAO
tune for the song. I still had the tune of the song stuck in my head. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJlV3t9Qf6y
But it was going to be difficult to make it sound right now that we had 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPKT4bK27xX
to use auto tunes and electric beats.copyright protection44PENANA8LbGvtciU248Please respect copyright.PENANAfFIdFHzzza

An hour had passed and I48Please respect copyright.PENANAnjwjm0tdfz
was already feeling so tired. Making the soundtrack was a lot harder 48Please respect copyright.PENANAL5kFavqcCX
than I thought. And this time, I got so tired so quickly. Must be that I48Please respect copyright.PENANAaSDS5jzFS9
really didn't have enough sleep last night. I was having a whole lot of48Please respect copyright.PENANAQgsnAPn32C
fun with Daesung, Seungri and Taeyang around. I admired Hyo-rin who sat48Please respect copyright.PENANADOHXuRsU45
leisurely on the couch and would come up and join us whenever she felt 48Please respect copyright.PENANASfXw73PHJI
like it.copyright protection44PENANAVUZWDzhkkM48Please respect copyright.PENANARAYkXy9kCc

"It's been an hour and I48Please respect copyright.PENANAWf1EcwwFqB
already feel so tired," I mumbled as I leaned by head backward as I sat48Please respect copyright.PENANAKjQIPYMEGw
on a chair next to the music producer. "This is so hard."copyright protection44PENANAcdnM7Lp88g48Please respect copyright.PENANAmx6lR3U1nw

"Mind if I give you a massage?" Seungri asked as he came to stand behind me.copyright protection44PENANAOg20Xyt9Qo48Please respect copyright.PENANAekLgYYMvEc

"No. I wonder what's wrong with you sometimes," I said as I rubbed my neck. "I don't need a massage."copyright protection44PENANAbLjbIWLZh648Please respect copyright.PENANA6pvW7lVU0B

"Trust me, you're so 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqn9xI1BC2Y
tense," said Seungri as he laid his hands gently on my shoulders. 48Please respect copyright.PENANA9hjVxiTjNy
"You've been working so hard. You definitely need a massage."copyright protection44PENANAMuj9gqVFz448Please respect copyright.PENANAwTX2Q5nLZn

"No, Seungri." I tried to brush Seungri's hands away but he didn't budge.copyright protection44PENANAWolYoiwRrm48Please respect copyright.PENANAnqKwYtxz6A

"Come on, Sam," said Hyo-rin, looking up from her phone. "Just let him massage you. The maknae always gets what he wants."copyright protection44PENANAgD8AOQwAQO48Please respect copyright.PENANAxfRRbp95JX

"Oh, please." I rolled my eyes. "I never let Daniel get whatever he wants. Why should I let Seungri?"copyright protection44PENANAGCi0MzrHe048Please respect copyright.PENANADfRAiHFGtF

"Sam's right. And besides, Seungri can't give a proper massage," said Daesung.copyright protection44PENANALao79NpFFQ48Please respect copyright.PENANA3Q6On4iUDo

"Yes, I do!" Seungri snapped at Daesung.copyright protection44PENANA2Vuavj12TS48Please respect copyright.PENANAvbEm2QMcVv

"No you don't!" Daesung snapped back.copyright protection44PENANAQzv9AhI1ZX48Please respect copyright.PENANA9yL093IPJc

"I'm not going to talk about it," said Seungri as he started to relax my muscles on my shoulders.copyright protection44PENANA2L7rSgehWT48Please respect copyright.PENANAuN3BCqFUli

"Mmmm." I murmured in 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjQuYdwOZJJ
pleasure as I smiled and closed my eyes. I could feel my body relax. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuTifUrjCg3
"You're really good, Seungri. I might just hire you as my personal 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPLQSmsi2nD

"Thank you. I would definitely be your personal masseur."copyright protection44PENANA3eoynZP60P48Please respect copyright.PENANAcbYurSWLvd

I heard Daesung mutter to himself and I smiled. Looks like someone was jealous.copyright protection44PENANA32AbtsrHKo48Please respect copyright.PENANAOkZEdm7vou

The music producer soon 48Please respect copyright.PENANA9JbEzPlVi2
decided to take a break and he left. We made the studio more like our 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1vd00FTWqo
own crib. We sat by the couch chatting and laughing. I was even playing 48Please respect copyright.PENANAaeJ9SXv0sU
with the guitar and we were singing some random songs together. It was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuCDFgdvC8O
so much fun. Lee came in with our lunch and afterwards we were back to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAE9jRakx3gX
recording the track.copyright protection44PENANABTnpvwKrH848Please respect copyright.PENANAsqbcA4954C

We spent another two hours recording, when Collins came into the room.copyright protection44PENANAgKmFiJE8QF48Please respect copyright.PENANAZzeDfvQL7Z

"Hey, Collins," I said as I turned to look at him, removing the headphones from my ears.copyright protection44PENANAXTIy4b1wTL48Please respect copyright.PENANAAL9UDjeamu

"I want you guys to do me a favour," said Collins.copyright protection44PENANAUuFhUaOFCv48Please respect copyright.PENANA8OVk0vp9Bu

"What is it?" Taeyang asked as he also turned around to look at Collins.copyright protection44PENANANSgayyTcHK48Please respect copyright.PENANALB30ejw55D

"Zoey and the others will be coming later on in the evening, so I want you guys to go and pick them up."copyright protection44PENANARFDzdILeeF48Please respect copyright.PENANA4Fpez3xOeU

I raised my eyebrow at Collins. "Why don't you do it? I mean, it's never a big deal for you, right?"copyright protection44PENANA09aFr5QfKs48Please respect copyright.PENANAimIeGJK5Tl

"I'm busy, Sam. So I was48Please respect copyright.PENANAzFWDGbXcg2

"Let me guess, you're 48Please respect copyright.PENANAKf2HTISQU9
avoiding all the talking and yapping from Zoey." Daesung and Seungri 48Please respect copyright.PENANATKuBZ4Uhb0
were snickering and I couldn't help but smile.copyright protection44PENANAmXX0xbIjqX48Please respect copyright.PENANANcqGV4fpsV

"You know me so well." Collins smirked. "But also its because I have some important work to do."copyright protection44PENANAYr696yeXOZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAMcaOT3xMUr

Something told me his 48Please respect copyright.PENANAVObqqaukrF
important work had something to do with what he talked about this 48Please respect copyright.PENANAlfRLVMPbch
morning. I dared not try to ask because he would brush me off like he 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6YugNnkkaf
always does.copyright protection44PENANAqzyLBhFbTL48Please respect copyright.PENANAL53Xvt8ZNz

"Don't worry about it," said Daesung. "We will go and pick them up."copyright protection44PENANAtgJrhhDZA348Please respect copyright.PENANAE8PvTKiJVv

"Thanks, guys," said Collins and he left the room.copyright protection44PENANAXzu3IBCXzq48Please respect copyright.PENANA01tvigTCB3

It was late in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANASm8VkEosDc
afternoon and I was as tired as hell. I was leaning my head on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2ikROeB7Xx
console, careful not to mess around with the buttons and all. I had my 48Please respect copyright.PENANACYy6tRnmuY
eyes closed and I could slowly feel myself drifting away to sleep. 48Please respect copyright.PENANApmlyhGcG8Q
Taeyang pulled up the headphones from my ears and that made me sit up.copyright protection44PENANAXZZwLANrMH48Please respect copyright.PENANASa9d2XrD5p

"What did I miss?" I asked, sounding drowsy and rubbing my eyes, when I knew nothing much had happened.copyright protection44PENANAcgXWHfdleN48Please respect copyright.PENANAbHnJORBbd5

"Nothing. You just dosed off for a few seconds," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANAobnTf6vR4448Please respect copyright.PENANAaDrwbJcopk

I looked beside him and I48Please respect copyright.PENANAeivnvxlXbq
realised Daesung and Seungri weren't on their seats. I looked behind 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmm8K6XBH8P
and I saw them on the couch with Hyo-rin looking a little tired. The 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMjsePEX13n

leaning my head on the console.copyright protection44PENANAi14hxQSlhE48Please respect copyright.PENANAsuWBe2yQKH

"I always hate this part48Please respect copyright.PENANAFw08LQNISQ
of making a music track. As much as I love producing music, it gets me 48Please respect copyright.PENANA5e8K6OVvP3
so worked up and tired," I said as I leaned my head back onto the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6ix2TM5rCQ
console.copyright protection44PENANA2uU0qCfDXu48Please respect copyright.PENANA9inaq80dQS

"Ya, I understand you," said Taeyang. "I wonder what time these guys will get back."copyright protection44PENANArmFPgVVLNZ48Please respect copyright.PENANA3W7cGe0CKP

"Didn't Collins say at night?" I asked through a muffled tone.copyright protection44PENANAQ51UnzKgU148Please respect copyright.PENANAFQ8cT1YZtB

"I wonder what time."copyright protection44PENANAUWwPWWsbzp48Please respect copyright.PENANAPCTcMkkNya

"Wait." I pushed my head48Please respect copyright.PENANAFC7NOO2OqM
upwards and felt like my head was spinning out of control. I was still 48Please respect copyright.PENANAE5CMivNhvg
feeling sleepy and I had to hold my head for a while as though I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANASkTMwF6RsE
drunk and the world around me was spinning.copyright protection44PENANAF1MlQ2hLN548Please respect copyright.PENANA28g9W4XYTn

"Whoa! Are you okay, Sam?" Hyo-rin asked as she came over.copyright protection44PENANALDaMyymjOg48Please respect copyright.PENANAKxtnjLT72o

"Ya, I'm fine. Just tired." I pulled out my phone out of my pocket and decided to call Collins.copyright protection44PENANAlJcRy8N1kn48Please respect copyright.PENANAoVIhHfXN6q

"You know, if you're tired you shouldn't come with us to the airport," said Daesung. "You look really tired."copyright protection44PENANAqZodlffC1348Please respect copyright.PENANAs9zJivOguH

"I didn't sleep well 48Please respect copyright.PENANADff7CySvGV
last night," I said as I rubbed my eyes. The phone screen was all 48Please respect copyright.PENANAT4RCmyRkmY
blurring. "I stayed up all night and slept on the floor."copyright protection44PENANAHNHSAfqWzf48Please respect copyright.PENANAKP8kyqQmGk

"Ya, you better not come with us, my little panda," said Seungri. "You need a whole lot of rest."copyright protection44PENANAcUYoLxxzzR48Please respect copyright.PENANA4kzjrcSkHy

"You're right." I soon dialled Collins number and asked him what time the plane would arrive and that I wouldn't be able to go.copyright protection44PENANAW0RldcAsPC48Please respect copyright.PENANAgBD7dZF5k2

"He said they might come at nine in the evening," I said when I cut the call. I was so sleepy I felt like I couldn't stand up.copyright protection44PENANAwwpdoZtPV248Please respect copyright.PENANA44RcppDfMk

"Well, since we are all done here, you can go back to the hotel and rest," said Taeyang. "We will take you."copyright protection44PENANA58W4wIC4hb48Please respect copyright.PENANAAREaa6m3r4

"Alright. Thanks."copyright protection44PENANAWdbNzo0aRP48Please respect copyright.PENANACIFfPTfvZz

"I'm coming too," said Daesung.copyright protection44PENANAMnlcBKc4A748Please respect copyright.PENANAx4Eph3PUjB

"And so will I," said Seungri.copyright protection44PENANA6Gg3KNMnR348Please respect copyright.PENANAeTsT3D0qGr

"Guys, it's fine. Taeyang and Hyo-rin will take me," I said with a small smile on my face as I faced Seungri and Daesung.copyright protection44PENANAyNhJBQ8B0048Please respect copyright.PENANAui9ayZ3Ou3

Immediately I left the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAn282sp6hjp
studio with Taeyang and Hyo-rin, Hyo-rin couldn't help but say, "was it 48Please respect copyright.PENANASyjlsmZsNF
just me or Daesung and Seungri were fighting over you?"copyright protection44PENANAqNnM0Zxc3748Please respect copyright.PENANAThY3rx3vlx

"Pfft! Fighting over me? How?" I asked trying my best not to smile through my tired face.copyright protection44PENANAkaOAeyn0Ve48Please respect copyright.PENANAzJAHL26Rjq

"Well, the time Seungri was massaging you, Daesung was totally jealous," Hyo-rin said. "What do you think, Tae?"copyright protection44PENANA3u2keDbmfc48Please respect copyright.PENANAhcYAyrXxTK

"Well, I think they were just playing around," said Taeyang as we entered the elevator.copyright protection44PENANAmGZKsZJ0cN48Please respect copyright.PENANAdN2cQtJUZ5

Phew! Taeyang hadn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAryO2gz5mrp
noticed or else he would have agreed with Hyo-rin. But anyway, I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANANJCMkadhI6
tired and was in no state of talking about who liked me or not.copyright protection44PENANA8wXW6cutcq48Please respect copyright.PENANA2WT48KySEx

The next thing I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAX66M9mmeJN
remember was lying on my comfy pillows back at the hotel and my eyes 48Please respect copyright.PENANADwxgiRqv89
roll back.I covered myself with a blanket and I felt like I was sleeping48Please respect copyright.PENANACb5vfegO6U
on clouds, slowly drifting to sleep.copyright protection44PENANAIgUKB8oMvD48Please respect copyright.PENANAm41sQaPcpy

I woke up by the sound 48Please respect copyright.PENANA034xjnoKTw
of my phone ringing and I squinted before I opened my eyes and close 48Please respect copyright.PENANATvIY0YdhMj
them again. I murmured as I tried to look for my phone. My arm moved 48Please respect copyright.PENANAb8ndBenrqM
here and there on the bed and I couldn't remember where I had put my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZqQ4X9smTl
phone. I was too lazy to even open my eyes to look for it.copyright protection44PENANAYSkYCMYmNb48Please respect copyright.PENANATMQBLRzY8m

I reached out for the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAikvGx7UVyk
drawer beside the bed and as I fumbled on the surface looking for the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIxLyCJH45B
phone, I heard someone come in the room and before I could open my eyes,48Please respect copyright.PENANApYngA97a7f
I felt something in the palm of my hand. Was that my phone?copyright protection44PENANA9VH7RNjmhw48Please respect copyright.PENANAwqA168803H

but when I came in you were struggling to find it," Lee answered.copyright protection44PENANAimCZttNNQ448Please respect copyright.PENANA6zs1B4yMNe

"Thanks," I said as I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4MqNmFC42s

could let my eyes adjust to see who had called.copyright protection44PENANAjD35lNtcWD48Please respect copyright.PENANAIbLbdmfL83

"I hope this is the last time you ever stay up all night," said Lee. "You looked really tired when you came back."copyright protection44PENANAyJMMPUDJ1Q48Please respect copyright.PENANAZdQq1c5Eh8

Lee left the room and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAAdVQXpwEaO
went on to look at my phone. I had missed calls from Zoey, and this was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAp8PnQ0xWsu
just 9:30 PM. They must have already landed.copyright protection44PENANAlH2yJlefrI48Please respect copyright.PENANAaWqCgN5Ofc

"Hey, Lee," I called out to Lee as I found her watching a Korean drama series holding a bowl of popcorn. "Is Collins around?"copyright protection44PENANABCwAQpVSLs48Please respect copyright.PENANACPqxGoXc28

"No," Lee answered, putting popcorn in her mouth.copyright protection44PENANARLxAxo7dTp48Please respect copyright.PENANA1sgQP7Rn3j

I joined her on the couch and took a handful of popcorn from the bowl. "Did he tell you where he went?"copyright protection44PENANAWe6YMPj15L48Please respect copyright.PENANARegiQx5Vlk

"No. But I bet it's got to do with what he told us this morning."copyright protection44PENANAKGnhheGc7s48Please respect copyright.PENANA8XayuQWr3Z

"Of course." I rolled my eyes. "I should have known. Are you watching Boys Over Flowers?" I pointed at the TV screen.copyright protection44PENANAFZdczKBHYv48Please respect copyright.PENANAA4rQVgXND1

"Yes, it is. Your supper is on the table. Go get your plate and come over and sit. This series is just so awesome."copyright protection44PENANA6UJcTw2dx748Please respect copyright.PENANA6vfmN5TS1f

I dashed over to the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAd9coIHeF9i
dining table where there was a plate of spaghetti and meatballs. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEJn5zimw50
quickly dashed back to the couch and the two of us watched the series.copyright protection44PENANAYiOmz5BgiI48Please respect copyright.PENANAxcvNzjStcU

It was now 10 PM and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIp4UNMB2sK
Zoey and the others still hadn't arrived. I looked at my phone to see if48Please respect copyright.PENANAk6tHc30yA5
there were any messages or missed calls but nothing. I wonder where 48Please respect copyright.PENANAy7i4URnNkz
they were right now.copyright protection44PENANAIXHVagGLXE48Please respect copyright.PENANAI2ZMXMzzP1

"Hey, what's wrong?" Lee asked as she looked at me. The episode had ended and a commercial came up.copyright protection44PENANAg4z0htwjG448Please respect copyright.PENANAj98NRkQRTq

"Nothing. I was wondering why these guys are not back yet."copyright protection44PENANArFng1WlCcE48Please respect copyright.PENANAXrygwt7Ths

"Who knows. I just hope they didn't get into any trouble, even on the road." Lee laughed.copyright protection44PENANAkVB2QMjxyg48Please respect copyright.PENANAtZusLsek13

"I hope not. After what happened at Lotte World, I don't think they would want to go through something like that again."copyright protection44PENANAcPlMPCfmVV48Please respect copyright.PENANAmkdu85OZWI

We soon heard the elevator doors opening and we both got up from the couch to the hallway to see who had arrived.copyright protection44PENANAs2t2R6FD6T48Please respect copyright.PENANAcBYmA922rC

Two bell boys came out 48Please respect copyright.PENANALcFuraY9TN
of the elevator first and I was confused until I saw they were bringing 48Please respect copyright.PENANASHYWIE9P8k
in boxes and wrapped packages. Lee and I looked at each other.copyright protection44PENANACKtwZ5h11A48Please respect copyright.PENANASlWQIwZLzr

"Zoey." We both said at the same time.copyright protection44PENANABd50KmfUTQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAnkD2O4cMe6

There were so many gift 48Please respect copyright.PENANAz6Oy3xccmk
boxes and packages from Paris, Lee and I had to help out with the bell 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxeGt4o04az
boys with bringing everything in. Some of the boxes also had to come 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvxT8AIdNvr
into the lounge. I was glad Collins wasn't here yet. He was going to be 48Please respect copyright.PENANAU4xIDAfPNB
so pissed.copyright protection44PENANAZlTsoLz3oF48Please respect copyright.PENANAakPQNUfOZp

"They are downstairs," he answered.copyright protection44PENANAq2Lw3wSjqM48Please respect copyright.PENANAifzQXcrd2e

When the doors flew 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHx3EOHcOyx
open, I saw the Toxins and Big Bang in the lobby all indulged in some 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjQNTGK68Y8
conversation. Even Hyo-rin was there. They didn't seem to notice Lee and48Please respect copyright.PENANAmNkVrnh1Fr
I until Daniel looked towards the elevator.copyright protection44PENANA8xfyYNYwDp48Please respect copyright.PENANAAnZE1OmeCU

"Sam! Lee!" Daniel exclaimed and he ran towards me.copyright protection44PENANA44sQAwmtPN48Please respect copyright.PENANAMWLzPskVAi

"Hey!" I was surprised when he came to hug me. "You've never come running towards me like this in a while."copyright protection44PENANAfZdn37TSzt48Please respect copyright.PENANA3X5oSxLazq

"I just missed you," said Daniel. "You too, Lee."copyright protection44PENANA5I1lg08fwM48Please respect copyright.PENANABaNBOPpb42

As Daniel hugged Lee, Mike came to hug me. I was even more surprised.copyright protection44PENANAEAQ7qqDNUs48Please respect copyright.PENANA5QZRpOjKKU

"Guys, you've been away for a day and you're acting like you've been away for months," I said.copyright protection44PENANAA9sOxvVrnv48Please respect copyright.PENANA2OR8cKGXUf

"Paris was nice, but not without you, Sam," said Mike.copyright protection44PENANAVtdWOuWXJs48Please respect copyright.PENANAowpb7e1xp5

"Don't tell me Zoey was acting like a control freak," said Lee, teasingly.copyright protection44PENANAJo3Avu19hV48Please respect copyright.PENANAAvWznmoH68

"Hey," Zoey came over to us. "I tried to be really reasonable this time around. Don't blame me."copyright protection44PENANACS54HCAD3Y48Please respect copyright.PENANAB9Wth8dX68

"We aren't blaming you for anything, Zoey," I said. "How was Paris?"copyright protection44PENANA8YrmVgRRdB48Please respect copyright.PENANAcuECGMRHjg

Zoey hugged me instead. "I missed you so much, my little kitty!"copyright protection44PENANAkXZnxvRyE948Please respect copyright.PENANANUMJta5RRb

I raised an eyebrow. 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0skWWC5azb
Something was definitely up this time. Christine also came to join in 48Please respect copyright.PENANAiMGXpmJg43
the hug. What did these guys do in Paris for them to behave like this?copyright protection44PENANAtg1ylJbVmf48Please respect copyright.PENANAxRXkAruGil

"Okay. Enough," I said as I shook off Zoey and Christine away from me. "Can someone please tell me why you're acting like this?"copyright protection44PENANATuelQ9BI1P48Please respect copyright.PENANASiOdfKPkUo

"Everyone just missed 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwdbcaAyTRD
you. That's all," this time it was TOP who answered as he came towards 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXouUI5lcLE
me with his arms outstretched. "Aren't you also going to give me a hug?"copyright protection44PENANAjlMjJjOARt48Please respect copyright.PENANAxEXlRc6Gw0

I rolled my eyes at him,48Please respect copyright.PENANA53dgfnROhI
feeling rather hilarious that he had asked for a hug. I took a few 48Please respect copyright.PENANAre6W9P1u1N
steps towards him. I couldn't understand why I had a stupid smile on my 48Please respect copyright.PENANA9zr6Vji1ZP
face when I hugged him.copyright protection44PENANAKlJLU5v50R48Please respect copyright.PENANA24Sfl8DdWV

"I missed you too, TOP," I said after we broke away from each other.copyright protection44PENANAlUlzfcIRUJ48Please respect copyright.PENANAVo92kjRmNT

"Wait! You missed TOP 48Please respect copyright.PENANAaXtC3oVmqV
but not us?" Zoey asked. "I'm so upset. After buying you all those gifts48Please respect copyright.PENANAbs04Imdlz9
and you didn't miss me? I thought you were my best friend."copyright protection44PENANAGe5sxOMlpD48Please respect copyright.PENANAgvyqxTJpgx

I always loved it when 48Please respect copyright.PENANAirvL3yaZVA
Zoey acted like the jealous best friend. I turned to look at her with a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAU73VbLho7Q
smile and before I could reply, someone else did instead.copyright protection44PENANAP9ZyVTEqZE48Please respect copyright.PENANAyol7OT1yih

"Don't mind her, Zoey. Looks like she only cares about TOP instead of anyone else."copyright protection44PENANAhkzDUOPDGK48Please respect copyright.PENANA6BIBnMayL5

For a moment, that voice48Please respect copyright.PENANA8GcbBoXTM4
sent a chill down my spine and I didn't even want to turn around. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJls5shZtQh
clenched and unclenched my fists. His voice was so full of bitterness it48Please respect copyright.PENANALXTtyggIO1
almost sent me into an outrage. I don't know why this time around, I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOXI09jo6db
wasn't afraid or scared of what G-Dragon thought of me. I was tired that48Please respect copyright.PENANAbWxE2ZW1tN
he was still acting the same way he had left.copyright protection44PENANAnmYsPwhBSG48Please respect copyright.PENANAjeKdIitY1i

I was really confused. I48Please respect copyright.PENANA0QgIRp2fwf
wasn't so clear why he was mad at me. And I hated the fact that I had 48Please respect copyright.PENANArIcYmfYjhr
to think around in circles just to figure out what was wrong with him. 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6BGQOp9hob
This time it wasn't the jealousy he had for TOP. It felt way more 48Please respect copyright.PENANAAo2Q7Tga9M
personal and it had to do with me.copyright protection44PENANAeHQegM7Ud748Please respect copyright.PENANAqAvDzRSxb9

I had no other choice 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZhKG8z6iRu
but to turn around to face him. I made sure that my face didn't reveal 48Please respect copyright.PENANAurTwi1pyby
how I truly felt. G-Dragon was standing right next to Hyo-rin and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAlB9QeJI7gT
Taeyang. I managed to put up a smile before I could say anything.copyright protection44PENANAzus88mXYZD48Please respect copyright.PENANAhgb2XkB3Cs

"Hi GD. How was Paris?"copyright protection44PENANAInZHPOe7q648Please respect copyright.PENANAx6UrDcs3KD

By the look on his face,48Please respect copyright.PENANAC5fLWuuECL
I bet he didn't expect me to greet him. I wasn't going to give him want48Please respect copyright.PENANAxT2JVZ3x2F
he wanted. If I had answered by talking back at him, things weren't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZAMT1q6ttQ
going to end pretty tonight.copyright protection44PENANAOENET3q0XD48Please respect copyright.PENANA75WnRSSmwu

"Paris was okay," G-Dragon answered. "I heard you managed to finish the song and played it out for everyone today."copyright protection44PENANA7w8AFgWCfW48Please respect copyright.PENANA84naNjaRQd

"Ya, I did."copyright protection44PENANAfXkfF94Thu48Please respect copyright.PENANAxQOjKPKQjd

"Ya, it's pretty awesome," said Seungri.copyright protection44PENANAOblXL0eIDt48Please respect copyright.PENANAbF7zQVT0MK

"Can't wait to hear it,"48Please respect copyright.PENANAejB2DlSncc

"You should give us a preview when we go upstairs."copyright protection44PENANAFSrZ869c0q48Please respect copyright.PENANA5mhdW78Q8V

"Anything for you, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAAmfcpSyigK
guys," I said as I pinched my brother's cheek. "That's how much I care 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuSD8NaCSdM
about you. Unlike some people who think I don't miss them." I turned to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvj9Nx5UFW3
look at Zoey.copyright protection44PENANAH0vRNfTEqX48Please respect copyright.PENANABxqQJPJh80

"Don't mind her," said Christine. "You just know how she is."copyright protection44PENANAte8PcTQqCt48Please respect copyright.PENANA2DSGMGRoy4

"You guys better go and rest," said Taeyang. "We have a busy day tomorrow."copyright protection44PENANAUhmlguspHs48Please respect copyright.PENANAb4okRVqMBm

"Okay, we better go then," said Seungri. "See you guys tomorrow."copyright protection44PENANAPptlghAaW148Please respect copyright.PENANAPcTf3D5MUd

After saying bye to each other, we all went our separate ways.copyright protection44PENANA7pgffs95TL48Please respect copyright.PENANAMWQFCDlt1U

"You know Collins is 48Please respect copyright.PENANAycYXwPTXCu
going to kill you, right? With all those gifts you came with," I said to48Please respect copyright.PENANAjrHdGKRMwL
Zoey and the others as we were all in the elevator going up to our 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0iIQXltjPv
floor.copyright protection44PENANAyN3U8joAI648Please respect copyright.PENANAdoHble1fbD

"Don't worry, we also got a few presents for him too," said Mike.copyright protection44PENANA3yvwTLNuVJ48Please respect copyright.PENANAJv4rJLbAyH

"And you think bringing him gifts will help?" Lee asked. "You guys are in a lot of trouble."copyright protection44PENANAv29Lioest748Please respect copyright.PENANAmy05pYqShg

"This won't be the first time," said Zoey. "I mean, we're always in trouble no matter the cause."copyright protection44PENANAe2UhW2AlDj48Please respect copyright.PENANAouE5G0kHfv

I looked at Zoey and wondered why she would say that. Did they have a little problem in Paris? I hope not.copyright protection44PENANArGSXdMI1hE48Please respect copyright.PENANAlZ1qqLbBlK

"We better sort out all 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjIikNHjdAB
the gifts before Collins gets here. You don't want to get on his bad 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuY684M9oup
side, like you usually do," I said as we got out of the elevator on our 48Please respect copyright.PENANAUPpVgPGsr2
floor.copyright protection44PENANALMGUyZjMrN48Please respect copyright.PENANAcLKu6xbpLL

Sorting out all the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0gJ6oNTycn
packages and gifts took a whole lot of time than I had expected. The 48Please respect copyright.PENANAY6dn2udJWF
gifts in the hall and also in the lounge were just too many. These guys 48Please respect copyright.PENANAL8qwCx4NWP
had really bought a lot of stuff.copyright protection44PENANAUFPOWMRx7v48Please respect copyright.PENANAzX6j4v7X3j

The boys had brought a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAl1pzpr3CaZ
handful of video games, including some expensive designer t-shirts and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAhW8IsKfwyc
jeans from Chanel. Expensive French cologne for men and watches with 48Please respect copyright.PENANAm7asqeXxc1
expensive designer shoes.copyright protection44PENANARzcKwpwfqN48Please respect copyright.PENANAQy3g8sIb4S

As for Zoey and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAbmPj4h4kOC
Christine, well, you know what girls would like to buy if they ever go 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwbKGDaVBI8
to Paris. Designer shoes and dresses. Expensive perfumes and Zoey also 48Please respect copyright.PENANACzGGPO8x0d
bought along with her some expensive jewellery.copyright protection44PENANATbAA68zqV148Please respect copyright.PENANAqczgwDyAYm

"G-Dragon was helping me48Please respect copyright.PENANAduxXbb87NQ
out with picking the jewellery," said Zoey when she showed us a pretty 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfppW6fKeNL
gold necklace with matching gold earrings.copyright protection44PENANAdPG3EDQvbY48Please respect copyright.PENANAreY0uuE25C

"Wow, very pretty," said Lee as she looked at the jewellery.copyright protection44PENANA13xdN4Cjj348Please respect copyright.PENANApi7Wgj8orV

"Ya, very pretty," I said dully, looking at it briefly.copyright protection44PENANA7dfHNlPnML48Please respect copyright.PENANAeGlEDrUnFH

We were sitting on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA97W77rCMtH
floor in the lounge sorting out the gifts. The ladies were huddled up in48Please respect copyright.PENANApT0wPgQYEh
one circle while the boys were next to us also sorting out their own 48Please respect copyright.PENANATTYfxBGsZm
stuff with Collins' too.copyright protection44PENANAo0A53fJUKU48Please respect copyright.PENANA99t6hBxTn0

"We also bought a beautiful necklace for you too," said Christine looking over the boxes behind her. "Where is it?"copyright protection44PENANASLXpYKuB4O48Please respect copyright.PENANABNTBjJSaIw

I was also searching for any jewellery box behind me when I stumbled over a box of Lindtt chocolates.copyright protection44PENANAEb1TSOfIc148Please respect copyright.PENANArBqqQY1xq1

"Yum, is this for me?" I asked as I got the box and looked greedily at it.copyright protection44PENANAuA24F6ko0548Please respect copyright.PENANATzamFrYdkm

"Hey! It's for all of us," Zoey warned. "I know you love chocolates, but you don't have to be so selfish."copyright protection44PENANAjSRgiQ1Mr648Please respect copyright.PENANAeW98ytRqDA

"Since when have I ever been selfish?" I asked, as I opened the box.copyright protection44PENANAA6hCZarfSD48Please respect copyright.PENANAX5cnv2lxAM

"Okay, you've never been selfish. But when it comes to chocolates...."copyright protection44PENANAhndjrTpMhp48Please respect copyright.PENANAytlJQ1aPev

"'But when it comes to chocolates.....'" I mimicked her. "At least I know how to share."copyright protection44PENANARBhISzyTmZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAbtrkBZNsqq

I distributed the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA3nwfL2i7zS
chocolates to everyone. Lee was trying on a pair of heels which looked 48Please respect copyright.PENANAT8mfRdh22w
so good on her while Zoey kept on looking for the jewellery box which 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxdZYyAYl3o
was meant for me.copyright protection44PENANA0X5hz5s0ll48Please respect copyright.PENANAM6MjlxlDFU

"Where is it?" Zoey muttered to herself as she looked at the other packages on the floor.copyright protection44PENANADCIRWaKlW248Please respect copyright.PENANAwy3SNV54X8

"Don't worry about it," I said as I walked over to her. "We will find it tomorrow. We can't go through all these right now."copyright protection44PENANALND3vvD4pZ48Please respect copyright.PENANABumAtUarfd

"Ya, you're right," said Zoey. She had a gloomy look on her face. I could tell that she had bought that gift with lots of love.copyright protection44PENANA3pX9Hwf9xA48Please respect copyright.PENANAQ2jDlFaGjQ

"But we better pack up some of these stuff," said Lee. "This place is in a mess and Collins might....."copyright protection44PENANAvbcd29nNuk48Please respect copyright.PENANABPoFIcANhx

When Lee just said 'Collins,' the sound of the elevator doors opening was heard. Collins was here!copyright protection44PENANAPg7tjDZWHo48Please respect copyright.PENANAWS2isvcDXs

For a moment, time 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQNvaqQPBx9
seemed to have stopped and all of us in the lounge had stopped along 48Please respect copyright.PENANAs9YQOG3oul
with it. We all had our mouths open, looking at each other in shock. We 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWqeYJHtVkr
hadn't finished packing up and Collins would freak out when he sees this48Please respect copyright.PENANAobeTlFJbhh
mess.copyright protection44PENANAWLOTUwp9GX48Please respect copyright.PENANAkJqjAfZDEu

"Hey, guys I'm here!" came Collins voice in the hall.copyright protection44PENANAKb8Xob6MYB48Please respect copyright.PENANAZAVdzEU3ze

"What are we going to do?" Mike whispered as he looked at me.copyright protection44PENANA6OReiaRh7y48Please respect copyright.PENANAuXpJQLoAXG

"I don't know," I whispered. This was bad.copyright protection44PENANAG3jvXe1noH48Please respect copyright.PENANASipiB0xAEb

"Hide," Zoey whispered.copyright protection44PENANAk8Tt5iEb5D48Please respect copyright.PENANA5DM0QlELpe

For me, it kind of felt 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0TcpC3b1D8
pointless to hide. But not for Zoey, Christine, Mike and Daniel. Zoey 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIvr8O28mDM
went to the dining table and hid under the table. Christine, Mike and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAyIpkIgGn15
Daniel hid behind the couch. Lee and I just stood there, static.copyright protection44PENANANbrEpJPh1W48Please respect copyright.PENANAB1ZNrCQDEu

When Collins came to the48Please respect copyright.PENANAMmZduOfCaS
lounge, he stopped on his tracks. He was obviously trying to take 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoJAO3j5KG6
everything in. His mouth was slightly open, trying to say something, but48Please respect copyright.PENANAQh8P5zrVd6
he just couldn't.copyright protection44PENANAPH09cYoelM48Please respect copyright.PENANApZspcXdszo

"Hey, Collins," I said.copyright protection44PENANAWFUP808Ncd48Please respect copyright.PENANAkY8VNbfSWV

"What is all this?" Collins asked when as he took a step into the lounge, looking around.copyright protection44PENANAqZoRDOBt5D48Please respect copyright.PENANAZMd7CiH4dU

"Christmas came a little early," said Lee, with a smile.copyright protection44PENANAqVlr5yptMK48Please respect copyright.PENANAaCTD26Agy9

Collins looked over at Lee and noticed the heels she was wearing. "Those look nice."copyright protection44PENANAfJpayyaHlm48Please respect copyright.PENANAFT8NOVZ3OV

"Thanks."copyright protection44PENANAUMmjEZ8ftd48Please respect copyright.PENANAZNIcUkuCpI

"Where are they?" Collins turned to look at me.copyright protection44PENANATT9ekfMJJy48Please respect copyright.PENANAwzlqdnwND5

"Who?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAtZhT9QskxO48Please respect copyright.PENANAWiY56N15QP

"You know who I'm talking about."copyright protection44PENANAHsA3Le3Tuw48Please respect copyright.PENANA0PCJ1x4w9t

"If you're talking about Santa's little helpers, they left a while ago." I said as I folded my arms.copyright protection44PENANA7nphBJwnsg48Please respect copyright.PENANAeG3z6gXD3A

"Santa's little helpers, alright," said Collins as he carefully walked around, avoiding to step on anything.copyright protection44PENANAWWfeQo5iJD48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ0TH60u75l

Collins went over to the48Please respect copyright.PENANAX6aAPc7UJh
dining table. There were a few gifts on the table and down on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnXXrx4IuHM
floor. Collins moved the presents down on the floor and Zoey was beaming48Please respect copyright.PENANA5qNZ8TZC14
up at him.copyright protection44PENANA6q5HtRVxLp48Please respect copyright.PENANAXYb8y0lGV4

"Hey, Collins! Looks like you found one elf who stayed behind," said Zoey, beaming up at him.copyright protection44PENANA3TNsaocHMF48Please respect copyright.PENANAXj2VKzZt4H

"Where are the others?" Collins asked.copyright protection44PENANAXJBcYrB3Kk48Please respect copyright.PENANAfa829hW9TX

Christine, Daniel and Mike came out from behind the couch and they all said, "hey, Collins!"copyright protection44PENANAHRLNyfEtMq48Please respect copyright.PENANAdRWp0vpmbl

"Guys what is all this?" Collins said as he looked around the lounge.copyright protection44PENANATPjGit5ubR48Please respect copyright.PENANAq9Es5o25S7

"Gifts from Paris," said Zoey.copyright protection44PENANA98BLlzdWDY48Please respect copyright.PENANAM7hVarc6A6

"But why did you get all this stuff? I hope you didn't use your credit cards."copyright protection44PENANAhkP27nhMR348Please respect copyright.PENANA4OY0dZvDlH

"Well..." Mike looked down at his feet.copyright protection44PENANAcKTvrbZwGa48Please respect copyright.PENANAYLRCeW1h1T

"Okay, great." Collins looked worn out if not frustrated. "I hope you didn't finish up all the money in your accounts."copyright protection44PENANAoPjZBEzPBc48Please respect copyright.PENANApO1GKb8WiI

"I doubt it," said Daniel. "We made sure to be careful with what we were buying."copyright protection44PENANANTxCVF0dsR48Please respect copyright.PENANA3mx1nK1Tom

"Ya, most of the stuff weren't bought by us, you know? If it came to the designer clothes, it was all from Chanel," said Zoey.copyright protection44PENANAhECaa4maA248Please respect copyright.PENANAAm8rZno1Eq

"I'll know for myself when I get to see your bank accounts," said Collins.copyright protection44PENANAlZSEZujyjV48Please respect copyright.PENANAV4eWLY8TVr

"Here, we brought you an48Please respect copyright.PENANACYN90bU14i
expensive watch too," said Daniel as he gave Collins a fancy looking 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoEFw6FTvHy
box. A watch from Rolex. It was definitely expensive.copyright protection44PENANAL6OjJKYKXr48Please respect copyright.PENANAVCC9zn8Ih3

"That's because you're the best manager ever," said Christine.copyright protection44PENANABf6eqhiMrT48Please respect copyright.PENANA9T2W328Y4c

"Thanks," said Collins, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAgsQWZXCSsj
as he looked at the watch, looking rather impressed. "Do me a favour and48Please respect copyright.PENANArnW3xvrFdJ
finish clearing up all this. And also bring my gifts to my room. Okay?"copyright protection44PENANAOMSHrRbLqu48Please respect copyright.PENANAJnCMkGPsET

Collins smiled at the rest of us and left the lounge.copyright protection44PENANAHbBvvlgu5e48Please respect copyright.PENANAEVmvSlsueV

"Looks like he isn't really upset," said Lee. "He would have blown a big fuse already."copyright protection44PENANAVHt1VTieFK48Please respect copyright.PENANAOFjKJQgbwu

Lee was right. Collins 48Please respect copyright.PENANAUgRx2bdRER
wasn't really upset, but that smile he gave us before he left, made me 48Please respect copyright.PENANALiN8NFtgaH
realise something. He might be upset, but I felt like he had already 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcYmvJ5mZgS
arranged something to get back at us. And why not that which he and Yang48Please respect copyright.PENANAtb9lIbxV3b
Hyun-suk have planned for us? That for me would be the perfect payback.48Please respect copyright.PENANANPtBXhgqyq
That's if it is that bad enough to stun us all.copyright protection44PENANA7ux0cYRnKh48Please respect copyright.PENANA8Kpvg8BC7R

"Okay, people, let's get done with this," said Zoey. "It's almost close to midnight."copyright protection44PENANASrtuXYPetV48Please respect copyright.PENANAvB3EWLQuHU

We continued sorting out48Please respect copyright.PENANAFvJ96Hqn8Z
everything and by midnight, the lounge had cleared up a little except a48Please respect copyright.PENANAOgKdL0mmCt
few wrappers on the floor which we picked up and threw away in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe85hM23CwK
waste bin which was overflowing with wrappers and empty boxes. And I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxbfgllYMJ6
planned with the others to sing them the song tomorrow because it was 48Please respect copyright.PENANALxmvK8w6u9
already too late and we all needed to rest.copyright protection44PENANAsoCVqyOIMu48Please respect copyright.PENANAAJhF03I4Ge

We hadn't managed to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOeq3uMpty8
find the jewellery box with my necklace. Zoey thought maybe TOP or GD 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzkFWQq4mxy
had it. I didn't like the thought that GD might have it. Getting it back48Please respect copyright.PENANAv7iNNjQwnx
from him was going to be difficult, looking at our current situation of48Please respect copyright.PENANALbLcfgYFJw
course.copyright protection44PENANAsUY0UbZMyJ48Please respect copyright.PENANAOjQufGVj3s

When we were all done and had retired to our rooms, Zoey quickly pushed me into the room when I was just coming into the room.copyright protection44PENANA3rbxW9wLnZ48Please respect copyright.PENANASzzamntdTQ

"Zoey, what's wrong with you?" I asked when she made me sit on the bed.copyright protection44PENANAHPojKOSzxF48Please respect copyright.PENANAKE2wQiNPXw

Zoey went by the door and checked in the hall if there was anyone. Then she came back in and stood before me.copyright protection44PENANA30z20udZgM48Please respect copyright.PENANAlMQcg5TboW

"What is it, Zoey?" I asked. "What's so urgent?"copyright protection44PENANAJjeURa4nWr48Please respect copyright.PENANADgvdrSBV5v

"Nothing much," said Zoey. "I just needed you in the room."copyright protection44PENANAnDhLX2zQB648Please respect copyright.PENANALP9Om069P4

I looked at her with an 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGbQwo6Bhi0
eyebrow raised. Something was definitely up and she looked like she was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAeVhK9ICKDH
stuck in between telling me what was bothering her or not.copyright protection44PENANAvF64I6yW5P48Please respect copyright.PENANAfpxpeTqk3g

"So, tell me what happened in Paris," I said as I took my Mr Panda into my arms. "How was the fashion show?"copyright protection44PENANAJO8XJ08Nn448Please respect copyright.PENANAoJsegQlR7D

"It was fine," Zoey replied as she walked to the closet to get her pyjamas.copyright protection44PENANAfKIxvFz5vb48Please respect copyright.PENANASmz96ISItv

"Fine?" I looked at 48Please respect copyright.PENANApJVW89QzuT
Zoey's back and then I looked at Mr Panda then back at her again. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPTDh8T7tLf
"Knowing you, you would've said it was so exquisite or it was so 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7DBGMHpFqT
awesome. What's happened to you? This isn't my best friend."copyright protection44PENANAb0Ri5zoEwu48Please respect copyright.PENANAbPC6MLgDkK

"Nothing happened," said Zoey as she took out her pyjamas and came back to put them on the bed.copyright protection44PENANAtfjCd3ClR048Please respect copyright.PENANAwaD9rL3zfO

"Tell me, please!" I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPmrr3e9tTz
begged. I even made Mr Panda on my lap beg as well putting his tiny cute48Please respect copyright.PENANAm4pYbcJrP4
paws together. "Nothing is not an excuse. You look like you want to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcmeQwGCzgR
tell me something. So tell me!"copyright protection44PENANAq6L8EhNdmj48Please respect copyright.PENANAn5ePxi3GLX

"Keep your voice down!" Zoey snapped at me as she tried to cover my mouth but I slapped her hand away.copyright protection44PENANApykgQpQf4m48Please respect copyright.PENANAf71E6dQQEG

"Then what's wrong, Zoey? Did something happen in Paris?"copyright protection44PENANAKxC3aQ6NcX48Please respect copyright.PENANAUR28HyPj85

"Hello! Earth to Zoey!" I snapped my fingers in front of Zoey's face. "You look so lost. Please tell me what's bothering you."copyright protection44PENANAQlLbCBAsRF48Please respect copyright.PENANAmEBniHB9xf

Zoey paused and looked at me for a few seconds. Then she slumped her shoulders and sighed. "Okay, I will tell you."copyright protection44PENANAPBdsEniLau48Please respect copyright.PENANAPs6SAOrq7z

I felt really excited 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwj5HIrqqQP
like I was about to watch a blockbuster movie. I hugged Mr Panda close 48Please respect copyright.PENANAUctvAMdbWK
to me. Ready for what's about to drop out of Zoey's mouth.copyright protection44PENANAJY6OxQwnot48Please respect copyright.PENANArMdyENm6eu

"I don't know how I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGKNMswdTX3
should tell you this," said Zoey as she played with her fingers and was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIRgcnQZA2V
staring somewhere else. "But when we got to Paris, we went to the Eiffle48Please respect copyright.PENANAltIy1mmotA
Tower."copyright protection44PENANAAfOlqqX1TP48Please respect copyright.PENANAS9lGVOc8H9

"Ya, I saw the picture. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcq1tDojCZm
So much for going to Paris without me," I muttered. "You know I have 48Please respect copyright.PENANAykPgTRDgg6
always wanted to visit the Eiffle Tower."copyright protection44PENANAGIqTa5htRr48Please respect copyright.PENANAR8fcOb01kI

"Aren't you going to let me talk?" Zoey asked.copyright protection44PENANAXAq4oXVVlj48Please respect copyright.PENANAbw8cZLBjoA

"Okay. Continue." I pressed my chin onto Mr Panda's head.copyright protection44PENANAoVzdhZEf1x48Please respect copyright.PENANAFWVvcPnQ5D

"So we got to the Tower and we were having a good time as usual." Zoey paused as she licked her lips. "Then something happened."copyright protection44PENANA4HgvBqASUs48Please respect copyright.PENANAWWMc9Bn9CH

"What?"copyright protection44PENANAkR2KWrIRn348Please respect copyright.PENANASNe00eMBxa

"When we got to the top 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcd68JjX692
of the Eiffle Tower, we were enjoying the view and I was so caught up 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ5Zvh87FhJ
with looking at the bright lights of the city I didn't notice that the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmaxAayOW9m
others had left and it was just GD and I."copyright protection44PENANAbLZKZhKDwL48Please respect copyright.PENANA6mAdujxspG

My eyes grew wide. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAu9MtF4CMJU
knew where all this was going already. And before I could let my best 48Please respect copyright.PENANAv643HeBwbL
friend share her magical moment herself, I blurted it out.copyright protection44PENANAbBtr64SHWN48Please respect copyright.PENANASi8svCL25b

"You two kissed."copyright protection44PENANA9hEc1BEKs148Please respect copyright.PENANAJzkv3ZAGLj

"What the...! Sam!" Zoey hit the bed with her hands. "How could you!"copyright protection44PENANANEMNoM49qB48Please respect copyright.PENANAAhpEl7SWD4

"I'm sorry."  I hissed and covered my mouth. That wasn't supposed to happen.copyright protection44PENANAVBco3isW0p48Please respect copyright.PENANAIvmQYSsKVy

"Great! How did you know?" Zoey still looked pissed, but yet surprised.copyright protection44PENANAJaHomJZ0ts48Please respect copyright.PENANAVE7gabgKR1

"Well, you were in one 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4sju6EBYBe
of the most romantic cities in the world and you two were left alone, so48Please respect copyright.PENANA3jKp9JhCtd
for me, that was a perfect romantic scene."copyright protection44PENANA2h6O4vB9F148Please respect copyright.PENANAapSiG2uWNm

"Thanks. So, how was it?"copyright protection44PENANARmpyLMhLNK48Please respect copyright.PENANAcWQXlZGDBa

Zoey smiled like a fool,48Please respect copyright.PENANARMAJ4hMydz
now that the secret was out in the open. "It was so unexpected but yet 48Please respect copyright.PENANAUcrIuNCqLv
it was so magical at the same time."copyright protection44PENANAdP2kE6Qffv48Please respect copyright.PENANAYYrOVNOCrq

I couldn't help but 48Please respect copyright.PENANANicn1gFNOS
smile. It's been a long time since she smiled like that. The last time 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnJ5OrzC40o
she did, it was back in high school when she was going out with the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzYm1NiPCUg
hottest and yet popular guy in school and they kissed in front of 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2Hzf5AvKok
everyone at the prom.copyright protection44PENANAgZ5TW4Abvd48Please respect copyright.PENANADL3JAviczj

"Oh my gosh, Sam," said Zoey rubbing her cheeks. She was blushing. "I can't stop smiling to myself."copyright protection44PENANArnAQVlCd7p48Please respect copyright.PENANAB9iXb6g1Ia

"So you guys kissed and then what?"copyright protection44PENANAYle0FT7w8n48Please respect copyright.PENANAhLSQ0YrwJP

"Nothing really. We had to pretend in front of the others when we went down the Eiffle Tower like nothing had happened."copyright protection44PENANA1on7ijbSuH48Please respect copyright.PENANARnBV6bqpo0

"And? Anything else? 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJZa1Xl8dmQ
What happened at the top of the Tower after you kissed?" I leaned 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoEChvDgX9Z
forwards with Mr Panda also eager to hear.copyright protection44PENANA6V4GM02pe948Please respect copyright.PENANAN1noWtznTY

"When we were on top of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnCXxEVTM8g
the Tower, when we kissed, he told me he liked me and kept on saying the48Please respect copyright.PENANADxVgOrT4o2
most sweetest words ever. How he had always liked me."copyright protection44PENANAPcu4daXkH548Please respect copyright.PENANA4b4rz0V9nO

Well that's a bummer. 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8Kr6i51cSa
But to be honest, I expected it. I remembered he had also said those 48Please respect copyright.PENANAswHnMvOFAd
words to me too. But that was when he was drunk. Could it be that he 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIEoM6YM18a
really liked Zoey and not me?copyright protection44PENANAHJu4QMn2FS48Please respect copyright.PENANAQhVhndnoqg

I brushed that off. Why 48Please respect copyright.PENANAySMfgyL5em
should I even care? I knew from the very beginning that GD wasn't in his48Please respect copyright.PENANAjW0HJ7Gv8P
right state of mind when he told me he liked me. I didn't really get my48Please respect copyright.PENANAGY6BgtPESf
hopes up with it.copyright protection44PENANAKMOPtBQv0448Please respect copyright.PENANAUr7HHogsuu

"I even told Christine," said Zoey. "I just hope you don't tell Collins."copyright protection44PENANAFPgaTulQO248Please respect copyright.PENANAONrPvaWcG5

"And why should I tell him?" I asked, shrugging my shoulders.copyright protection44PENANAWvLqACdYFT48Please respect copyright.PENANA1m48YkCNZu

"Ya, you're right. And don't tell your brothers. They are going to make fun of me."copyright protection44PENANAQpFFf8g5Eg48Please respect copyright.PENANA2TWaBDzR53

"Telling my brothers is one thing I wouldn't do."copyright protection44PENANA9k6quZUQQJ48Please respect copyright.PENANAmURNKmYHyF

"Hey, what are best friends for? We better go to sleep. We might leave for YG tomorrow really early."copyright protection44PENANAjDmYjB7zGL48Please respect copyright.PENANAQP4M0Fpzwv

"Okay." Zoey hopped on her bed like a little child and started to change into her pyjamas.copyright protection44PENANAQQ5XgAWbqN48Please respect copyright.PENANADSpuGaQERp

I left Mr Panda on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkDZmuImG39
bed and also went to the closet to get my pyjamas. When I changed, I 48Please respect copyright.PENANARTZWG0B5z8
quickly went into the bed covers and put Mr Panda right beside me. I had48Please respect copyright.PENANAAc10GIaxn2
gotten used to the stuffed panda being around whenever I slept. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWHGV3aEqRH
looked over at Zoey who was already in her bed covers.copyright protection44PENANAUkz9ZMYgcL48Please respect copyright.PENANAAJBAFhAhn9

"Good night, Zoey," I said to her with a smile.copyright protection44PENANAdvpAuIbBiS48Please respect copyright.PENANAqXmsY3a9Ay

"Good night," she replied. She turned to the other side to flip the switch beside the bed on the wall and the room went dark.copyright protection44PENANAm9Is6Z23bt48Please respect copyright.PENANAbwfRsj27KT

I laid my head on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPkDqUiIuA5
pillow and just as I closed my eyes, I could hear Zoey giggling to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAE030s13DbE
herself. She was obviously texting G-Dragon on her phone and I couldn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAbmbrdDLfLw
blame her. She was so happy when she talked to me about kissing him on 48Please respect copyright.PENANA9AQM0L5JgF
the Eiffle Tower. And it was also probably a good thing that I had never48Please respect copyright.PENANAOVGSW8UZM5
told Zoey what happened on Friday when GD came in drunk and told me 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEYrPqFtcVe
that he liked me. I could only imagine what the whole scenario would 48Please respect copyright.PENANAI5OzSPkXyB
have been.copyright protection44PENANAQ5NqfMde3p48Please respect copyright.PENANACmwiesr8se

Zoey would have only 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe6cFVDlpPg
felt guilty about it and would have confronted GD about playing the two 48Please respect copyright.PENANADylr7egsbP
of us around. It wasn't like he kissed me anyway, so maybe I was a bit 48Please respect copyright.PENANA3Obz7q1zzu
on the safe side. But it was still good that I didn't tell her anything.copyright protection44PENANAZgVpRp820r48Please respect copyright.PENANANNA0twEOWu

To be honest, I was happy for Zoey. And when I heard her giggling again, I realised that I wouldn't want to hurt her.copyright protection44PENANAVnAEPHDSLP48Please respect copyright.PENANA5z2r19FiBQ

I pulled Mr Panda closer48Please respect copyright.PENANA7FFjfMKglj
and cuddled him. I was soon drifting away into a deep sleep, eager for 48Please respect copyright.PENANAL96laASOoO
what's to come when I woke up in the morning.copyright protection44PENANAlCV93aVgoZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAitokUquzI6

***copyright protection44PENANAFogAN70W9148Please respect copyright.PENANAqQL591RTid

I48Please respect copyright.PENANAd3nkpxUhmj
was given a round of applause when I finished singing the song. I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6ENvZHVuhD
in the lounge with the Toxins and I stood before them as I sang the 48Please respect copyright.PENANABIunNDoFxG
song. I didn't have a guitar with me but I managed to sing it anyway.copyright protection44PENANAn5oYJeGn7r48Please respect copyright.PENANATLJg58O0qb

"The song is incredible," said Zoey. "I never thought it would be this good."copyright protection44PENANAct47C7iynG48Please respect copyright.PENANAjxQ72POXk6

"And your Korean, was good too," said Christine.copyright protection44PENANAy35OETVEP548Please respect copyright.PENANAAVP4iDIGig

"Then48Please respect copyright.PENANAtscjze9obt

service bringing in our breakfast. "We have a long way ahead."copyright protection44PENANAktUoBwvT5T48Please respect copyright.PENANAQLsSRVZ6d8

"I48Please respect copyright.PENANAC2a1m1JkB7

excitedly on her seat beside me. I could only tell why.copyright protection44PENANAsVBCZMwjEN48Please respect copyright.PENANArDT1BTbO2I

Christine48Please respect copyright.PENANAcFLnG8opsZ
who sat opposite Zoey coughed and I could tell that she just coughed 48Please respect copyright.PENANAx2rp5Ka331
out G-Dragon's name. Luckily, the boys hadn't even noticed. And by the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAgvE9wg3I46

Zoey and G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANAKZhEnSbTLh48Please respect copyright.PENANA2pPtPUeZYi

When48Please respect copyright.PENANA0eNFokVs20
we were done eating, we headed downstairs and as usual, there were 48Please respect copyright.PENANAythjFWL0ZD
paparazzi, reporters and fans too. We entered into the SUV and we 48Please respect copyright.PENANAN22DvRxJRw
arrived at YG.copyright protection44PENANANlUJ1mkzJA48Please respect copyright.PENANA2SLPx99tBb

"Hey, Sam," Zoey called out to me when we got out of the car. I turned to look at her.copyright protection44PENANAXcvyPvlmO048Please respect copyright.PENANAuaFMtlIflH

"What is it, Zoey?"copyright protection44PENANAayZrdmkog648Please respect copyright.PENANAT9JWMfNkZF

"Do I look okay? I mean, is my hair on point, my make up?"copyright protection44PENANAF3sANtX72H48Please respect copyright.PENANAQ1xBQ5L0zn

Mike growled loudly behind us as he came out of the car with Daniel right behind him. "The drama queen is at it again."copyright protection44PENANAI0TdyJIT5x48Please respect copyright.PENANAc3xRP0cygy

"Can't you just zip up your mouth and let me worry about myself?" Zoey asked, rolling her eyes.copyright protection44PENANATf5TGjf0Hw48Please respect copyright.PENANAf9HZ5tfTNf

"That's48Please respect copyright.PENANAyEg6f7b07K
the problem," said Mike as he came to stand in front of Zoey. "Once you48Please respect copyright.PENANAnkNVbDVobc
start acting like this, something is definitely up or you're just 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWrlErq7GkV
trying to impress someone. You've been acting really weird ever since we48Please respect copyright.PENANAVSzcYPkaQs

Mike48Please respect copyright.PENANAhjZDXq357o
turned away and headed straight for the entrance with Daniel. I could 48Please respect copyright.PENANA13hBffqzph
have sworn I saw him smirk before he walked away. Could it be that he 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1kvO3FMpK8
might know something?copyright protection44PENANACc5wpDf8xl48Please respect copyright.PENANAW2rWFpmJuu

"Don't mind him," said Christine. "You know how these boys like to mock us. Let's go."copyright protection44PENANAFrALkh4AiM48Please respect copyright.PENANA7vxo6NExn4

We48Please respect copyright.PENANAOppkdsZZRK
agreed with Christine and we went into the YG building with Lee and 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8OMAKs07bu
Collins. We got to the studio and I wasn't expecting the Big Bang 48Please respect copyright.PENANABj09H7WmFk
members to be there before us. Finding them here earlier than us was a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqtJPOXhOX9
bit of a surprise.copyright protection44PENANA6p9GY7203w48Please respect copyright.PENANAy5XlGINGPZ

"Hey, guys!" Zoey greeted everyone.copyright protection44PENANA5GJbc9Pshm48Please respect copyright.PENANAbricAZjxlY

"Hey, how are you," said G-Dragon as he came and gave her a hug. I bypassed them heading to the couch sitting next to Daesung.copyright protection44PENANAOXOoI9GNKY48Please respect copyright.PENANARMsBChyT5v

"Hey, are you alright?" Daesung asked.copyright protection44PENANAzRnJxmRAmU48Please respect copyright.PENANA3EB00iINZy

"Oh, I'm fine," I answered. "I slept a little late last night since these guys came with so many gifts."copyright protection44PENANA7sAQENZtgg48Please respect copyright.PENANANaZ5mA5G8r

"I48Please respect copyright.PENANAF0d7BPpaJu
also feel like I didn't get enough sleep," said Christine as she came 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGM9hN9AwXz
to sit beside me. She was obviously trying to avoid the two love birds 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4KJ4P6EVMM
in the room. The two of them seem to be in a deep conversation at the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmrMAzoqYya
moment.copyright protection44PENANAP4eEtXN9Ky48Please respect copyright.PENANAseXCwKL6gI

"Do48Please respect copyright.PENANAFksppiv3dh

"Can't you see they are having a conversation?" Christine snapped.copyright protection44PENANAKEyYi1V6bF48Please respect copyright.PENANAknm30wl37C

"Well, I think we should start working on the song," said TOP who sat next to Daesung.copyright protection44PENANAEi04O40FZx48Please respect copyright.PENANAERmtzHP2Oi

"I think someone has to tell these guys," said Taeyang. "Sam? May you do the honours?"copyright protection44PENANATPbBfFWs9K48Please respect copyright.PENANALDqPVXiu0O

I looked over at Taeyang who sat at the far end of the couch with my eyebrow raised.copyright protection44PENANAWTpuRIwNOH48Please respect copyright.PENANAgkcDod9Jgg

"You do it," I said. "Why should I?"copyright protection44PENANAst0txOxyux48Please respect copyright.PENANAmU8IoIqdLe

"Because everyone listens to you," said Daniel.copyright protection44PENANA6omhZBXV4648Please respect copyright.PENANAwwSWlNUDhV

Everyone around me shook their heads. I sighed.copyright protection44PENANAG0Z5vRN2EC48Please respect copyright.PENANAsygFcESlo9

I48Please respect copyright.PENANACK3LsruTFf
stood up from the couch and I went over to the multi track console 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7bL087N3L5
where I had left my notebook yesterday. Zoey and G-Dragon were still 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYeEeTQSMch
indulged in their conversation.copyright protection44PENANAK76KADz8c348Please respect copyright.PENANAVP1YAuq4n6

When48Please respect copyright.PENANAkvh5vqdjtY
I went back, I signalled to the others who were standing to sit down. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAosd3H6UAT6
When everyone on the couch was settled, I cleared my throat so loud, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAROVSNwneAK
hopeful that I caught Zoey and G-Dragon's attention.copyright protection44PENANAFir2zrDxmH48Please respect copyright.PENANAkUgB0M2e5w

"Ahem! So, we have to agree on who will sing the first verse," I said as I looked at the notebook.copyright protection44PENANAE3ID8evWga48Please respect copyright.PENANAcuYqxFxrfq

"I was thinking, G-Dragon and Zoey could start," said Daniel, as loud as he could.copyright protection44PENANAz1hFMSil1v48Please respect copyright.PENANAy7fu020ngB

"That's not really a bad idea." I nodded my head.copyright protection44PENANApHNRJninUF48Please respect copyright.PENANA8AwocxaeLg

"Hey, what's going on?" Zoey asked as she and G-Dragon turned to look at us.copyright protection44PENANA4yINcQ1INi48Please respect copyright.PENANALYKJoipVKF

"Oh, you guys better come here because we're dividing the lyrics amongst ourselves," I said as I turned to look at the two.copyright protection44PENANASmja163kr448Please respect copyright.PENANAljMANMDNaU

"You should have told us," said G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANAPRLCIu01RU48Please respect copyright.PENANAoiuUHHsSWd

"Well, I didn't want to disturb you two. You looked really busy. And the two of you will be doing the first verse."copyright protection44PENANAGWtoKFfMo248Please respect copyright.PENANA8HbTrzcQvW

G-Dragon gave me a weird48Please respect copyright.PENANAvQfir245Qe
look and all I could do was smirk at him. My plan had worked to get 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZfxuaebC78
their attention. I went back to looking at the lyrics while he and Zoey 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPgP09hAm75
took their place on the couch.copyright protection44PENANA5gpprqvuLX48Please respect copyright.PENANAiDWyVnB0sr

"Christine and Daesung, I48Please respect copyright.PENANAerGMWQ17s8
think one of you could sing the bridge after the first verse and then 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfhp5iynSVu
the other on the second bridge after the second verse," I suggested.copyright protection44PENANAyAOkdxPdzH48Please respect copyright.PENANAYd8UM3hn4K

"Then you and I will sing the chorus," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANA8fDBEohTaF48Please respect copyright.PENANAOicv58m6gO

"Ya, we will sing the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfw6ECpdZh8
chorus," I said. "And Seungri and Daniel will sing the last verse. So, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuflCa7GrvK
now that we are done with all this, let me just give you guys a preview 48Please respect copyright.PENANAck3pP8ybeO
of the song and how its supposed to be laid out. I hope the music 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0tk68XwlWN
producer has the lyrics printed out."copyright protection44PENANAWfWlEnMaSx48Please respect copyright.PENANAtq3P2dXIFs

"He brought in the printed lyrics for each be of us this morning," said TOP, his eyes on the table behind me.copyright protection44PENANA7r8WLmtAz348Please respect copyright.PENANAtSMwiBEQNT

I looked behind me on the small table. I hadn't noticed the papers. I took them and gave each member a sheet.copyright protection44PENANAiIiVkXkBQv48Please respect copyright.PENANAENmZUuXqQT

Afterwards, I sang out 48Please respect copyright.PENANAejki8nw55c
the song so that everyone can have a layout on how it should be sung. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxy5k5nVJdJ
Then we all went over the console so that everyone could listen to the 48Please respect copyright.PENANACSwZRruOSk
instrumental the music producer had made with me and the others 48Please respect copyright.PENANAI6D2pMpWRv
yesterday.copyright protection44PENANAhNKe9pCVzu48Please respect copyright.PENANA8p4dJ9AFTO

"So, what do you think of the instrumental?" I asked after making them listen.copyright protection44PENANAsHVBDHX7hx48Please respect copyright.PENANAovGVuynZnf

"So catchy," said Daniel. "I like it."copyright protection44PENANAazftvzqQbh48Please respect copyright.PENANAj5mX8MJxIB

"Me too," said TOP.copyright protection44PENANAls45Hdvj8548Please respect copyright.PENANA3Q184KhFqa

"Then, let's get started," said Daesung.copyright protection44PENANANBNJcqqaxH48Please respect copyright.PENANAtOG9KbI7a5

"Wait, a minute," said G-Dragon and everyone turned to look at him.copyright protection44PENANAHIhXbNwBDH48Please respect copyright.PENANAnubJrjvbRe

I didn't look up at him 48Please respect copyright.PENANANU4O29zkOZ
though since I was the one seated at the console and everyone else stood48Please respect copyright.PENANAvhObrzmaGx
behind and beside me. All I did was just sit there and rub my forehead.48Please respect copyright.PENANAf41qOsJkEA
Something told me he was going to say something I wasn't ready to hear.copyright protection44PENANASYaW4RaAbj48Please respect copyright.PENANAyrvCgyMPSA

"What's wrong, GD?" Christine asked. "Is there something wrong?"copyright protection44PENANAGYUtH7U7ir48Please respect copyright.PENANAOoSDzkcWuT

I started to relax my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAtKXuaMXU6C
temples with my fingers and my elbows leaning on the console. G-Dragon 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvE30hjz39s
had paused for a while and I felt impatient.copyright protection44PENANAPZa7WlUtXy48Please respect copyright.PENANAEYQwBqROml

"The instrumental is okay and all, but I feel there is something missing."copyright protection44PENANAbPxlMCdXco48Please respect copyright.PENANAHQ5Flgrjax

"What's missing?" I asked as I turned around on the chair to look at G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANAgTnbm5igcA48Please respect copyright.PENANAVFbYGtifwr

G-Dragon came to sit 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIaqyH1ZyQm
next to the chair beside me and I wondered what was running in his mind.48Please respect copyright.PENANAUxcZdygERq
The instrumental was just fine and it's not like we hadn't gone through48Please respect copyright.PENANAcM6oKMR32o
it with the music producer yesterday. I wondered what had gotten into 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvLzVjgXjPN
him now. Everyone liked it. But what was wrong with it for him?copyright protection44PENANAI2AS9xe40b48Please respect copyright.PENANAFJlRJyq0ch

"I'll have to listen to this for a while and I'll tell what I think," said G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANADb1axONLL048Please respect copyright.PENANAqo3wMOjESm

"Okay, suit yourself," I said as I backed away from the console dragging the chair behind me. I stood up.copyright protection44PENANA91TxdfCvwP48Please respect copyright.PENANA2n7CjrSgKI

G-Dragon got the headphones and at the same time, the music producer came in the room.copyright protection44PENANA6fSH72em6e48Please respect copyright.PENANA4qspicXIca

"So, should we start putting in the lyrics into the song?" the music producer asked.copyright protection44PENANAyKpzVXoII948Please respect copyright.PENANAZDz3amSu0K

"We can't because G-Dragon here, thinks the tune and melodies need a little changing," I said.copyright protection44PENANAISbBpoR2Uo48Please respect copyright.PENANAQ37YFrqyHb

"Really?" the music producer asked.copyright protection44PENANAR1DKILMW7S48Please respect copyright.PENANAgLBJbTV8C8

"Well, that's what he said," said Taeyang. "It all seems fine to me. I also don't see why it needs changing."copyright protection44PENANAbGDBgyyEgh48Please respect copyright.PENANAiCLSFVexpe

"Let's just see what he is going to come up with," I said as I folded my arms.copyright protection44PENANAOZ90BzosBj48Please respect copyright.PENANAhgipfXQFvy

"Give him a chance, 48Please respect copyright.PENANARMktvvnrDZ
Sam," said Zoey as she sat next to G-Dragon who kept on listening to the48Please respect copyright.PENANAAWBlOhg2PG
instrumental through the headphones. She also got another pair of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAh6WzwcxnS3
headphones and put them on.copyright protection44PENANARtkud3fZ0n48Please respect copyright.PENANAWJPgclLANp

"Okay, this is 48Please respect copyright.PENANAAnmbJatZdi
confusing," said the music producer looking at all of us. "Let me also 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGvpD5WPCjH
join them and see what needs some changing."copyright protection44PENANASb3vNj4lYl48Please respect copyright.PENANAFfrvwERieF

I nodded and the music producer went over to join G-Dragon and Zoey.copyright protection44PENANACMkMMVlboW48Please respect copyright.PENANAHO240LetLs

"So what should we do now?" Seungri asked.copyright protection44PENANAugqPKDT0DT48Please respect copyright.PENANAMsYb537VGr

"Chill, I guess," said Mike.copyright protection44PENANAnv5r1SL5eJ48Please respect copyright.PENANACmH3SdHJwW

The others looked at me 48Please respect copyright.PENANAodKrhLdweZ
when I didn't say a word. They were all looking at me obviously thinking48Please respect copyright.PENANAZ1rYcx1ksI
I would come up with a better solution to all this just to pass time.copyright protection44PENANArRwLDiHYt648Please respect copyright.PENANAL54t9WHRGd

"To be honest, I don't know what we should do," I replied, shrugging my shoulders.copyright protection44PENANAVYmmO70H7D48Please respect copyright.PENANAN5ryxJjKgy

"Why can't we just go through the song?" TOP asked.copyright protection44PENANABv9GXazIgN48Please respect copyright.PENANAKfzceMKf6c

"That's going to be a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXSi2lrZ2iF
problem." I rubbed the back of my neck. "The tune might change a little 48Please respect copyright.PENANAf6KGEhpX2F
now that GD thinks it needs a little changing."copyright protection44PENANAsHEYtigahK48Please respect copyright.PENANAwMV5Z9SJpY

"I doubt it," said Taeyang shaking his head. "We can still go through it. I don't think he can change the entire tune."copyright protection44PENANAhcIDzwKzeR48Please respect copyright.PENANAWnQeqbFpeY

Something told me he might but I didn't want to scare anyone so I kept that thought to myself.copyright protection44PENANAcPnlvkw43M48Please respect copyright.PENANA4t4PaI6AG9

"Okay let's go through the song," I said as everyone nodded their heads and sat on the couch and I went over to get the guitar.copyright protection44PENANASvuxuXPK8648Please respect copyright.PENANAgcWbiVlbEL

I looked over at Zoey 48Please respect copyright.PENANA9B80PycvXq
and G-Dragon. I wondered if they would really change everything. I tried48Please respect copyright.PENANAt2UyR5hYFX
to ignore the thought, and focused on the song.copyright protection44PENANAvpje2SLNsZ48Please respect copyright.PENANA7Va37tZtEE

I put a stool in front 48Please respect copyright.PENANAeOfmO4V1AT
of the others and I sat on it like I had yesterday. With the guitar in 48Please respect copyright.PENANAr3VmCMrTK6
my hands, I started to play and I sang the song. After I sang it, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQR21VavUD9
everyone admitted that the song was good and that made me realise about 48Please respect copyright.PENANAyRYNdNS9Os
what G-Dragon was up to. I tried not to look worried in front of the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2fwXC8K31u
others.copyright protection44PENANAFEO20knwpq48Please respect copyright.PENANAaSmdUhnpc0

"Now, that we know how the song is supposed to flow, let's all sing out our parts," I said. Everyone agreed.copyright protection44PENANAjiVNPpLEaT48Please respect copyright.PENANAzKRxy5kqe8

Taeyang and I sung the 48Please respect copyright.PENANATgope0xY4z
first verse since G-Dragon and Zoey were busy. Then Christine sung the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAterQrl8OKk
bridge, Taeyang and I sung the chorus. From that point, the song sounded48Please respect copyright.PENANAOk5GRELc4Z
great and everyone cheered.copyright protection44PENANALGi4UlXF8p48Please respect copyright.PENANAlYgJnvKUuO

"Wow, guys, this sounds awesome," said TOP.copyright protection44PENANAFO4uQ4PdBe48Please respect copyright.PENANAtY3VOugXj1

"Mind blowing if you ask me," said Mike. "I can't wait for the second verse."copyright protection44PENANAEUxzImZu1a48Please respect copyright.PENANAh8lnOd1zq6

"Let's give it a go then," I said and I started to play the guitar.copyright protection44PENANAnMQFRL1Or948Please respect copyright.PENANAzL4QvrmfmR

TOP started to rap the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA3QP7LEB2BV
second verse and then Mike followed suit. It was going on great. And 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4S3qgSDis3
while I played and the guys rapped everyone else on the couch was moving48Please respect copyright.PENANAo2OtSkVfzi
to the flow of the tune. I smiled. Everyone was having a good time.copyright protection44PENANAe6XiBOmq2Y48Please respect copyright.PENANA6D8WKUAmXb

Daesung sung the bridge and then Taeyang and I sung the chorus again. This time even Christine joined in.copyright protection44PENANAFGTcgByg5z48Please respect copyright.PENANAh14lrkd5CF

"I'm impressed," I said. "You guys really did well on the second verse."copyright protection44PENANAqtmh8d2a2u48Please respect copyright.PENANA81HXvAhqQR

"Come on, now," said Seungri. "Daniel and I want to sing our part."copyright protection44PENANAjgBhyc6VC948Please respect copyright.PENANAIXuRTfMtCJ

"Okay, okay." I looked at Seungri with my hand raised to calm him down. "Before you eat me alive."copyright protection44PENANATiQMu6o3nu48Please respect copyright.PENANAETLIfc2thF

Daniel and Seungri sung 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8qGQobrGCi
the third verse beautifully, and coming to the bridge, Daesung and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxlf2d8iZBU
Christine sung the bridge together. Taeyang and I sung the chorus. When 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJfOuX3H0wZ
we were done, everyone clapped for themselves and cheered.copyright protection44PENANACNXZ56c8ge48Please respect copyright.PENANAFFqmwOyYva

"That was lovely guys," I said as I smiled at the others.copyright protection44PENANACAudS3qZY248Please respect copyright.PENANAg2wv5JDoIf

"That sounds really good," came Yang Hyun-suk's voice behind me.copyright protection44PENANA8SlYFP53Ss48Please respect copyright.PENANAisu6WsaEsH

I almost fell off the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAD8n3vTS3Rn
stool when I heard his voice. I was so caught up with the song that I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe8qKDwthUc
hadn't noticed Yang Hyun-suk come in the room. By the look on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwcE1jBtufW
other's faces, they hadn't noticed him either.copyright protection44PENANAxvgvulBHuS48Please respect copyright.PENANAbS4yWAsODj

We all stood and bowed our heads as Yang Hyun-suk came closer to us.copyright protection44PENANAV7tqkltKks48Please respect copyright.PENANAcSsCC586n2

"I have to say, you all 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjTfXVzzo3O
sounded really good. The song is just perfect," said Yang Hyun-suk with a48Please respect copyright.PENANAlfHqOD0gsE
smile. "Keep up the good work."copyright protection44PENANANsk9rZYw3R48Please respect copyright.PENANAAEw2g88pfv

"Thank you," we all replied at the same time.copyright protection44PENANAZBmf6RBIy548Please respect copyright.PENANAsypIwkh6Jl

"You're supposed to be in the live room recording the song," said Yang Hyun-suk. "Why aren't you doing so?"copyright protection44PENANAAtc3TxpniK48Please respect copyright.PENANAU4ABvofvFH

No one said anything. We48Please respect copyright.PENANA9flFhCOp24
all looked at each other expecting the other to say something. Most 48Please respect copyright.PENANAUuDkdaEugo
eyes were on me though. I always hated it when I had to do all the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQbsrMYP2tv
talking.copyright protection44PENANAQ6cafEaebd48Please respect copyright.PENANAJCK5i1I7rK

"Umm, G-Dragon wanted to add a few things to the instrumental," I said, not looking at the manager in the eye.copyright protection44PENANA5aPsqVj1ER48Please respect copyright.PENANAblfOGsZkWf

"Add a few things or change things?" Yang Hyun-suk asked, sternly.copyright protection44PENANA7ekkieSICb48Please respect copyright.PENANAJNqceda4fD

That, I couldn't answer.48Please respect copyright.PENANAzZgj4zlNGM
Looked like he also thought like I did. The only way to find out was to48Please respect copyright.PENANAxS7MHNeG8b
listen to the instrumental ourselves.copyright protection44PENANAsshFDxjNMv48Please respect copyright.PENANAVRYm3dAdhP

"He just said something was missing," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANA1RFRj5MC7q48Please respect copyright.PENANARQP7aUGvHn

"Then where is he then? Why isn't he here?" Yang Hyun-suk asked.copyright protection44PENANAteFOzY3sHF48Please respect copyright.PENANAhefp1WdgDl

"He is right-" I turned around to the console. He and Zoey weren't there.copyright protection44PENANAD98VOLs8ze48Please respect copyright.PENANAszdqVhEvvV

"They were here a while ago," I said as I pointed at the audio machines and the multi track console.copyright protection44PENANADB6jspoe2w48Please respect copyright.PENANAlmMauW5brM

"They?" Yang Hyun-suk asked.copyright protection44PENANAFwLlkkkoM148Please respect copyright.PENANAyJ1O82Lljo

"G-Dragon, Zoey and the music producer."copyright protection44PENANA4paclZXN8x48Please respect copyright.PENANAHLXVcTcQpI

The manager shook his head. He was obviously annoyed with all this.copyright protection44PENANA2M885AyuPB48Please respect copyright.PENANAML4yVzv1KW

"I want them back here 48Please respect copyright.PENANANjFO8ORT9b
right now," said Yang Hyun-suk. "I'll back in thirty minutes and if I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAiQWgM8aYZz
don't find them here, you better have a good answer for all of this."copyright protection44PENANA0v7LQr6aQT48Please respect copyright.PENANAGLkLkglPh5

I gulped as I felt the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAL5prUyfMsp
air in the room change. He was furious all right. He was more furious 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXKgT122b11
because he feared that G-Dragon might change everything with the song. 48Please respect copyright.PENANALIN6t7nOWF
And we only had thirty minutes to find them or else we were toast.copyright protection44PENANAbUjm6Em4ru48Please respect copyright.PENANAUILk9FSprk

No one said anything 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPo55i78kj9
when Yang Hyun-suk left the studio. And this time, I was furious. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAl4R8blgzac
looked at the others and it looked like I wasn't the only one.copyright protection44PENANABugJDlkcQ948Please respect copyright.PENANAe5UZq4Fiu6

"Where could they have 48Please respect copyright.PENANADjvJpNRx7a
gone all of the sudden?" Christine asked, her voice sounded like it was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHtezCqUSZ5
full of rage. "They were there the last time I checked."copyright protection44PENANANQFUCvmIGc48Please respect copyright.PENANA4eaYeA3TTx

"They couldn't have gone far," said Daesung. "They must have been gone a few minutes."copyright protection44PENANABS6UfdyBh048Please respect copyright.PENANAZxQuhgi8Np

"Maybe they went out for lunch," said Mike as he looked at his wrist watch. "It's almost close to lunch time."copyright protection44PENANA5TvmC8IXky48Please respect copyright.PENANAivTx4vXZoX

"They should have told us though," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANA77oM20ioJY48Please respect copyright.PENANA4tbesqPvjI

"Then we better start 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2jgTOx96GX
looking," I said. "I just hope they aren't out of the building or else 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwYspwxVuwj
looking for them will be difficult."copyright protection44PENANAAkRHf6UOHc48Please respect copyright.PENANArAMDPe3EJn

We all agreed to split 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnMGDFubOAR
up and look for them given the little time we had. I went with Christine48Please respect copyright.PENANAM7QfwmMrQi
and TOP looking around the other studio rooms, Mike and Daniel went 48Please respect copyright.PENANALiTxVIMZmw
over to the dance studios. Taeyang, Seungri and Daesung went upstairs.copyright protection44PENANAON5k9ItSFN48Please respect copyright.PENANAmKi2oYxAN8

All the studio rooms 48Please respect copyright.PENANArzfiOMFAdw
were empty, so I went with Christine and TOP downstairs and asked the 48Please respect copyright.PENANATYOMwKujJR
receptionist if she saw Zoey and G-Dragon go out.copyright protection44PENANAqMVPzXQRmz48Please respect copyright.PENANAP6C8906GAT

"The two of them walked out just a while ago," the receptionist answered.copyright protection44PENANAQXUHE9NzYv48Please respect copyright.PENANAP2t4kiQ0S4

"Almost fifteen minutes."copyright protection44PENANAoL1jAAhrsE48Please respect copyright.PENANAVIUxQ3yXK8

"Try and call them, will you?" I asked TOP.copyright protection44PENANA1iBVZg5MP348Please respect copyright.PENANAQzakDvCuwv

He nodded and pulled out48Please respect copyright.PENANAy2hBmQbrU4
his phone. At the same time, the elevator doors opened and my brothers 48Please respect copyright.PENANAgQMaoDeWAY
walked out of it and came towards us.copyright protection44PENANAiBQAsX31yn48Please respect copyright.PENANA5rxgLbMnFi

"Anything?" Daniel asked.copyright protection44PENANAgW8hgJSybk48Please respect copyright.PENANASekaPH119W

"They left the building," I answered with my hands on my hips. I looked over at TOP. "Have they picked up?"copyright protection44PENANAccCN7C4dpT48Please respect copyright.PENANA5pMSAbvO85

"GD's phone keeps ringing and he isn't picking up," said TOP, with his phone on his ear.copyright protection44PENANAgHu7hW4kXC48Please respect copyright.PENANANdwkuiwgFb

"Let me try to call, Zoey," said Christine pulling out her phone.copyright protection44PENANAIdzRvPBonM48Please respect copyright.PENANAyypTJfBKgK

I looked at the time on 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHmaueKFJzO
my watch. We only had fifteen minutes left and Yang Hyun-suk was going 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPn1mIwEeMk
to kill us all if we didn't find them.copyright protection44PENANAIAYlo6Xsjm48Please respect copyright.PENANAplSPeC5Pnm

"She isn't picking up either," said Christine.copyright protection44PENANAlz4PGmMLGK48Please respect copyright.PENANAz4IKyXveH4

"Great, these guys are going to get us into trouble," said Mike as he scratched his head.copyright protection44PENANAopYXhtNSRa48Please respect copyright.PENANA2wr4SaAwon

"If they just went for lunch they are bound to show up," said TOP.copyright protection44PENANAEAKDW8JTA248Please respect copyright.PENANAROIKEWmJMJ

"Should we split up and look for them around town?" Daniel asked.copyright protection44PENANAgWCkMjGy5n48Please respect copyright.PENANA5mOO6nLBCs

"Splitting up will be risky now that Yang Hyun-suk is on our necks," said Christine.copyright protection44PENANAitNhr4KeXC48Please respect copyright.PENANAGEY8JRikoG

I hadn't said a word 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHfupZ9mmS8
when the elevator doors opened and Daesung came out. He had a really 48Please respect copyright.PENANA5XuUMAhxcT
worried look on his face. He rushed up to us and I also couldn't help 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZSyY0hQiCe
but worry.copyright protection44PENANApBdaf9iY3T48Please respect copyright.PENANAZjuuJuD5Qv

"What is it, Daesung?" I asked. "Is there something wrong?"copyright protection44PENANA1jQEECYlb348Please respect copyright.PENANAdWtIQfj8Nv

"We just met with the music producer upstairs," said Daesung. He shook his head. "You're not going to like this."copyright protection44PENANAJuxxLYBvdz48Please respect copyright.PENANA1MnALnSBGu

Daesung motioned his 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQFOk9xOMCF
head towards the elevator. We followed him and we found ourselves back 48Please respect copyright.PENANAiQBMzr1SAO
at the studio. Taeyang and Seungri were with the music producer.copyright protection44PENANA8DalNqv5py48Please respect copyright.PENANAoBBLcn94ZQ

"Please tell me G-Dragon didn't just change the entire tune for the song?" I asked when we got in the studio.copyright protection44PENANAZqSP5ws3SD48Please respect copyright.PENANAzPvnaFUZsx

Taeyang and the music 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEKngwXIyPi
producer looked at each other with blank looks on their faces. They 48Please respect copyright.PENANAndUZZ6m9bl
looked back at me. Seungri was looking at me the whole time. I was so 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZKbv7ma1lD
preoccupied in my mind, thinking of the worst, that I felt so confused 48Please respect copyright.PENANAy0nWgUTYsJ
and angry at the same time.copyright protection44PENANA6C7D9SCLoQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAhQXbPXib7t

"It's best if you hear it for yourself," said Daesung.copyright protection44PENANAlxtwSgWoml48Please respect copyright.PENANAx6dJCk5Nmq

I looked over at Daesung48Please respect copyright.PENANAqUrORHILGb
and made my way to the console where the music producer had his laptop 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvX2t9Rqr3x

I48Please respect copyright.PENANAznMiF5TF7f
came crushing back down to reality by the harsh sound of the manager's 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmk71AsQHd6

brooding for a while.copyright protection44PENANAVrCHfOzAst48Please respect copyright.PENANAZUFLdlR61Y

had so many mixed feelings inside after listening to the instrumental 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmuFD89cUQx

could tell that the others were as confused and wondering why G-Dragon 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkI3XsE16ck

so hard on that track and I felt everything just went down the drain.copyright protection44PENANA8ABmdft6PX48Please respect copyright.PENANA7TLjoD7yIo

"Isn't anyone going to answer me?" Yang Hyun-suk asked.copyright protection44PENANAlKoYsEM1ee48Please respect copyright.PENANAt36w0yb1Fn

Yang Hyun-suk left, Seungri came over to me in a quick flash. He scared48Please respect copyright.PENANA9I3q1DWePh

that we could get Zoey and G-Dragon into trouble? The reason why I did 48Please respect copyright.PENANAbt6P2UvKPE

suddenly sat upright when I realised something. Hadn't he told Zoey 48Please respect copyright.PENANAv2QDCd0mIB
that he liked her? If he really did like Zoey from the beginning, then 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcd2ziNs0fI
why was he acting like a jealous prick the other day? Was he trying to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAE3cGTzBrjU
get back at me not just by ruining the track but also by hanging out 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzOWpsyCsVl
with Zoey?copyright protection44PENANAKulBzyOGxw48Please respect copyright.PENANA37z6GRT9S8

"Hey, Sam, are you okay?" Daesung asked as he looked at me. "You look like you have seen a ghost."copyright protection44PENANAvdPFUHmR7648Please respect copyright.PENANASwc4d6DOxW

"" I tucked a strand of hair behind my ear. "Nothing. Just realised something."copyright protection44PENANAMDcaWm5zKf48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ6LGvdf8Fa

"That you're hungry," said Seungri, looking at his cards in his hands. "I'm also hungry."copyright protection44PENANA1vKm7kVV0s48Please respect copyright.PENANAtIh3OYVI7N

"But we can't go out and order lunch," said Mike. "I feel Yang Hyun-suk's eyes are everywhere now apart from here."copyright protection44PENANAsvFhbAZxr748Please respect copyright.PENANARZk43xaHmI

"Maybe48Please respect copyright.PENANAD6PoMkC1th
we can just order a pizza and tell the receptionist to come here 48Please respect copyright.PENANAbX0t0PrVyz
without raising any suspicion to Yang Hyun-suk," said Daniel.copyright protection44PENANADeKPoHctgX48Please respect copyright.PENANAJpz4tDCEkY

"Good idea," said TOP. "Let me tell her right now." He pulled out his phone and just when he was about to call, Lee came in.copyright protection44PENANAJhstEzOzvO48Please respect copyright.PENANAmX5cmRwZS0

"Hey, guys," said Lee carrying three boxes of pizza in her hands.copyright protection44PENANA2XjHevie3J48Please respect copyright.PENANAg4XhxX7ZTF

"Finally, food!" Christine exclaimed as she got up from the floor and ran over to Lee to help with the boxes.copyright protection44PENANAlGY6wmNIQ448Please respect copyright.PENANAzD48HyLkd6

"I48Please respect copyright.PENANAiA3oMqfjp8
heard that Zoey and G-Dragon had left," said Lee. "Yang Hyun-suk told 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjGcgYKe5K7
me and he is watching out of his office window for them like a hawk."copyright protection44PENANAGAm841ISAd48Please respect copyright.PENANAKjLPssoeMB

"I knew it," said Mike. "I knew he was watching."copyright protection44PENANAGDb0kqwCEz48Please respect copyright.PENANAk5botXPJgf

"Then48Please respect copyright.PENANARAV3QUO4Zy
it's a good thing Sam texted me a while ago," said Lee. "I had to find a48Please respect copyright.PENANAcKSXzlqXzc
way to sneak in the pizza. That's why I took forever to get here."copyright protection44PENANAmZfk6MHUux48Please respect copyright.PENANAyUiKiMI7vZ

Daniel came over to hug me. "Thanks, sis. I don't know what we would have done without you. I was starving."copyright protection44PENANAYb7kjbl24W48Please respect copyright.PENANAmmziqpcfuc

"Ya, I know," I said. "We better eat quickly before the managers get here."copyright protection44PENANAgKzrLURhxv48Please respect copyright.PENANAOGWGDv23tB

Everyone48Please respect copyright.PENANAg1vyMOluVQ
soon dropped their cards and went over to the table started to dig in 48Please respect copyright.PENANAtid2BErNTV
as soon as one of the pizza boxes was laid on the table and Lee opened 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0HCXoftqjW
it. copyright protection44PENANAQTv6dBSUvn48Please respect copyright.PENANA2zYx8Klteh

I48Please respect copyright.PENANAkIzyKbccY6
had never eaten pizza so fast and it had never tasted so good in my 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8ZOKWc0pDj
mouth. Maybe it's because despite all the anger bottled up inside me, I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAlFSkd04zuj
was as hungry as hell.copyright protection44PENANAsuyzOSLaUP48Please respect copyright.PENANAQO1qmLBzYA

We48Please respect copyright.PENANAG6AuRwHRWk
were done finishing the second box of pizza when Lee asked, "I heard 48Please respect copyright.PENANAaiZ3Cd3GMx
G-Dragon changed the instrumental for the song, is that true?"copyright protection44PENANA7aAHBlBtD848Please respect copyright.PENANA0Dm14JNGjL

"Well, ya," I said with my mouth full of pizza. The pizza was so good.copyright protection44PENANAYt2uAf5saB48Please respect copyright.PENANAgZSRtJoaBk

"He changed it for real?" Lee sounded surprised. "But Yang Hyun-suk said you haven't heard it yet."copyright protection44PENANAQC5ocUhY5c48Please respect copyright.PENANAuMCuPeHTVu

We48Please respect copyright.PENANAqV7NWcxKSQ
were huddled up on the floor around the table eating our pizza and we 48Please respect copyright.PENANAv9Po0j7otJ
had soon stopped eating and looked at Lee who was seated on the couch.copyright protection44PENANAOcmoUYKvrn48Please respect copyright.PENANAIYvltkzbdv

"Why are you looking at me like that?" Lee asked.copyright protection44PENANAEqRGUsW0V648Please respect copyright.PENANAFEqNsnZZ7R

"We actually lied," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANABLIHaVBrTH48Please respect copyright.PENANAPC0F01Y8pr

"You lied? About what?"copyright protection44PENANADHU06OZRkq48Please respect copyright.PENANAS8qnuUI35V

"I told the manager that we hadn't heard the instrumental," I said.copyright protection44PENANAfYR6FLzBLu48Please respect copyright.PENANAyLAZy2my1t

"But why?" copyright protection44PENANAHnfq5qlHRf48Please respect copyright.PENANAqR6rw7sugS

"Because, I had no choice. I want to know why GD did this. It's best we know and see how to move forward."copyright protection44PENANAovXiw36vUq48Please respect copyright.PENANAW81mvvgdzm

I finished my slice of pizza and licked my fingers when Lee asked, "don't you think he just did that to get back at you, Sam?"copyright protection44PENANAW9pOg4zPFl48Please respect copyright.PENANA987J7GMueN

I48Please respect copyright.PENANAXEF45bbyFr
didn't expect Lee to say that in front of everyone. I felt time I had 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqCAsZ5Xgjw
stood still and all eyes were on me now. I looked away without saying a 48Please respect copyright.PENANACsEKcMqYgF
word.copyright protection44PENANAjnJzNOZ9vR48Please respect copyright.PENANAMdkriqCtYi

"What does she mean by that, Sam?" Daesung asked.copyright protection44PENANApUnmcTpjpk48Please respect copyright.PENANAVpVvRUBPaU

"Please, tell us," said Christine. "What is it with you and GD? Are you two still fighting?"copyright protection44PENANAKmt9aKdKzT48Please respect copyright.PENANAlMn0xAMXy2

I sighed as looked up at the ceiling still without saying a word. I didn't know how I was going to tell them.copyright protection44PENANA5TgPt4Dse948Please respect copyright.PENANACkgXMznp2l

"I thought that argument ended a long time ago," said Daniel. "Or did something else happen?"copyright protection44PENANAkD3HZgBpz148Please respect copyright.PENANAIYLDtDx5sI

I48Please respect copyright.PENANA0OvnO2XBZw
stood up from the floor and walked over to the window. The day was so 48Please respect copyright.PENANAECRVzDuW3w
bright and warm but yet I felt so cold and gloomy. I knew this day would48Please respect copyright.PENANAiLv3pZGW49
come sooner or later.copyright protection44PENANAJjnctyWHiw48Please respect copyright.PENANAE4XasMcqnb

Trying48Please respect copyright.PENANAW1ONWnrqku
to find the right words to say was a lot harder than I thought. What 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXCgsGFrnCw
was I going to say? To me, all this was confusing. I knew GD was still 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwhAur3gDtD
mad at me, but for what for, was the question in mind.copyright protection44PENANAAoqRdTWRlb48Please respect copyright.PENANAPpFDdB0E2k

"Aren't48Please respect copyright.PENANA9ZXpsE5U1H
you going to tell us?" Mike asked as I realised that he was standing 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqyY12q4j3y
next to me. "Is he still mad about who had to write the lyrics for the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXSXCvbewQg
song?"copyright protection44PENANA1FO4nOlYdU48Please respect copyright.PENANARZgPpJtuDu

"I doubt it," said TOP. "I was here with them when they were writing the lyrics and the two of them looked fine to me."copyright protection44PENANAZWen8HV5pe48Please respect copyright.PENANAc43b55BapF

"Please, tell us what's going on?" Taeyang asked. "Lee, do you know something?"copyright protection44PENANAC0D2SRVOIh48Please respect copyright.PENANAImyGY4RdAH

I looked at Lee and she was looking back at me with a scared look on her face. Using my eyes, I told her not to say a word.copyright protection44PENANAZKXOPkCajP48Please respect copyright.PENANAtsHKh6uKB7

Lee48Please respect copyright.PENANAfOciZhoBsN
went on to look at Taeyang and shook her head. "I've no clue. I didn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAhb9PR8TJlu
mean to say that. I just thought they might be arguing again."copyright protection44PENANA5iMjGU1C0q48Please respect copyright.PENANArPW8zdf3XR

"And it looks like it too," said Daniel, giving me an eye.copyright protection44PENANARCquFilA7448Please respect copyright.PENANAbcGnvGFTh8

"Aren't you going to say anything, Sam?" Seungri asked.copyright protection44PENANAR7OPVD9yNs48Please respect copyright.PENANAGzjQobYiUj

"I48Please respect copyright.PENANAMm8IuIWKMU
don't even know what to say to you at this point," I said, turning back48Please respect copyright.PENANACY6imBY2vg
to face the window and I saw G-Dragon's car pull into the premises. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAabPt2eF0wz
Mike also saw it too.copyright protection44PENANAoSLacs5e4548Please respect copyright.PENANAkjVt2qcYbZ

"They are here," Mike announced to the others.copyright protection44PENANAEVI5pnoLYv48Please respect copyright.PENANASNXZ6kB4m6

No one said a word. The room had too much tension already, it was best not to say a word.copyright protection44PENANAPQDDFzhP7548Please respect copyright.PENANAkwi90koFlU

"I better call Yang Hyun-suk," said Lee.copyright protection44PENANAhwY3GavLoz48Please respect copyright.PENANAfFdb9fCleN

"No, not yet," I said, before Lee could stand up from the couch. "Wait until Zoey and G-Dragon get in here."copyright protection44PENANAR3vA9VYxGX48Please respect copyright.PENANAk6Bi6HCHLY

Lee just nodded her head and I went back to looking through the window down at the car park.copyright protection44PENANA3wNGatfrin48Please respect copyright.PENANAO6v7gwrEcN

It only took five 48Please respect copyright.PENANAystMDC2gYg
minutes for Zoey and G-Dragon to get to the studio. They came in talking48Please respect copyright.PENANA3imFBtmda8
and laughing. Well, that happiness was going to end soon. Not when you 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcZfI6vey9q
see your group members are all upset and gloomy.copyright protection44PENANAxzTvCzG8l448Please respect copyright.PENANAlISOvwrxMp

"Hey, guys!" Zoey said cheerfully as she came in with G-Dragon behind her.copyright protection44PENANAId8dOh8NOP48Please respect copyright.PENANANQHawiDSwO

When no one said anything back. Zoey's mood also changed. "What's with the long faces?"copyright protection44PENANAKRlxyv1NXj48Please respect copyright.PENANA1JNgrTMGrW

Still, no one said anything. It looked like no one was ready to throw the dice first. I cleared my throat and looked at Lee.copyright protection44PENANAauT40wDGEZ48Please respect copyright.PENANA7NFZCaw3Hj

"You can call Yang Hyun-suk for us," I said.copyright protection44PENANALmdTA2bJP048Please respect copyright.PENANAsv99FFsjyZ

"Okay." Lee got up from the couch and bypassed Zoey and G-Dragon going through the door.copyright protection44PENANAyzSU7qq8eo48Please respect copyright.PENANA7AIURaODQg

"Aren't you going to say what's wrong with you guys?" G-Dragon asked.copyright protection44PENANAspSltTS7zw48Please respect copyright.PENANAAX4fXGptJ7

"Where were you?" I asked as I slowly started to approach them.copyright protection44PENANA6kTketmpcb48Please respect copyright.PENANAMbCWliCOBb

"We went out," Zoey answered. "Are we in trouble with Yang Hyun-suk?"copyright protection44PENANApKKiFSI51W48Please respect copyright.PENANANJLwECGsgw

"Not just with him but also with me, a lot of us too," I said motioning to the other group members in the room.copyright protection44PENANAutlmOOfHWP48Please respect copyright.PENANAJQuN5rtvVc

"What? Are you mad we left without telling you?" G-Dragon asked.copyright protection44PENANAd296noAJOM48Please respect copyright.PENANACInfEJyhxa

"No." I now turned to look at G-Dragon. "It's about the instrumental. You changed absolutely everything."copyright protection44PENANAVexGwcyeiz48Please respect copyright.PENANAskTeRxRx07

I tried to keep my tone down and my anger in check but I was boiling inside. Any minute now, I might just blow my head off.copyright protection44PENANAbM2x9Rmpyi48Please respect copyright.PENANA4JYzw400zW

I was expecting an answer from G-Dragon but all he did was look at me. I kept on coming closer, my eyes not leaving his.copyright protection44PENANAeMloTINtsB48Please respect copyright.PENANAccEAsjj1BR

"Why did you this?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAfnPM3lZCAh48Please respect copyright.PENANAb3b5i3D9BD

"I didn't like the first one you made," he said, clearly with no emotion in his voice.copyright protection44PENANAbM4ejd6GDE48Please respect copyright.PENANAhGnffUjgUT

"If you didn't like it, you should have just said so and all of us together would have figured something out. Not what you did."copyright protection44PENANAYSrkgk23Nv48Please respect copyright.PENANAc66RHzb1AM

When I got closer to them, I took out the USB drive from my pocket. I took G-Dragon's right hand and placed it in his open palm.copyright protection44PENANAF2SuPWQOyq48Please respect copyright.PENANASMP4R77vhI

"The instrumental is in 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8yowNDq7Tk
there," I said as I slowly looked up at G-Dragon. "When Yang Hyun-suk 48Please respect copyright.PENANA16r7X8G89h
came to hear it, I told him that we ourselves haven't heard it. I did 48Please respect copyright.PENANAU13K6VSdqa
this so I can get the explanation out of you. But we're running out of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAVyIk5vXvDR
time and he will be here any moment. It's up to you to give it to him 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQEYhMWqs5A
and let him hear it for himself. But let me remind you, he is already 48Please respect copyright.PENANAK0CNLIIDV8
pissed."copyright protection44PENANA6JcaYwo4c248Please respect copyright.PENANANRHwbM29iF

"Wait, a minute," said Taeyang as he came up right behind me. "He first has to tell us what's happening between the two of you."copyright protection44PENANAIbUavbuyfh48Please respect copyright.PENANA18kZp6WQz1

"We don't have time, Tae," I turned to look at him.copyright protection44PENANA3UkWoaSeZq48Please respect copyright.PENANAqj126MKPqG

"What is going on?" Zoey asked. "Are you and GD still not on good terms?"copyright protection44PENANAF5aRg8oFcB48Please respect copyright.PENANAYexGKJsMSL

I looked at Zoey and she48Please respect copyright.PENANAsUTMUjSQas
was as confused as ever. How I wish I could tell everyone but I didn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANARALTDSFoI6
know where I stand with G-Dragon. I still couldn't tell why and what he 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4GkCm5lPRe
was mad at me for.copyright protection44PENANAHVMC5iNAR248Please respect copyright.PENANAAj8u52OYTY

"Now is not the right 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqLycEb4kzM
time," I said as I went over to the couch and sat down. All eyes were on48Please respect copyright.PENANAqEtKgPQCFH
me now and I knew everyone was confused, but later on, they would 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQf1ZK72y5V
understand.copyright protection44PENANASUWdRlnJAm48Please respect copyright.PENANAwwG5IlhNFR

Yang Hyun-suk, Collins 48Please respect copyright.PENANAz5v3QMTGoy
and Lee came in seconds later. I could tell a lot of people felt 48Please respect copyright.PENANAofNpeywg6C
uncomfortable when they came in. I didn't. I just wanted to see whether 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcD8TJRe0ET
G-Dragon would give away the USB drive or not.copyright protection44PENANAafsl6JuvpG48Please respect copyright.PENANASeZohQaawz

"It's about time you guys got here," said Yang Hyun-suk as he turned towards Zoey and G-Dragon. "Hope you had a perfect lunch."copyright protection44PENANA67CSJIbwi248Please respect copyright.PENANAIUOwk34Qkb

I almost smirked but kept my cool when Zoey said, "yes, we did."copyright protection44PENANAzbXwoORLyr48Please respect copyright.PENANAtxPBqysEy6

"But did you manage to order lunch for your friends too?"copyright protection44PENANA8JGA4NkyiJ48Please respect copyright.PENANAyrlyPCoZMU

Zoey and G-Dragon paused. They obviously weren't expecting that. I had to step in and say something.copyright protection44PENANAfpQSizBt6U48Please respect copyright.PENANAzvPn2ar71L

"They did. They brought us pizza," I pointed at the three boxes of pizza on the table. We had only finished two boxes.copyright protection44PENANAvG5tcti4eR48Please respect copyright.PENANAiui85JGyof

"You guys were pretty hungry, weren't you?" Collins asked, looking surprised that two boxes were already empty.copyright protection44PENANAvnAcXF0hej48Please respect copyright.PENANAFWG0vvDTvq

"Ya, we were," said Mike as he opened the other box of pizza and the rest of us still eating dug in.copyright protection44PENANA1uIRm0rXux48Please respect copyright.PENANAO4VEsYOT5P

"So," Yang Hyun-suk looked away from us facing Zoey and G-Dragon. "Did you change anything with the instrumental or what?"copyright protection44PENANAR0dWtqqMuF48Please respect copyright.PENANAFnjXvpHcY5

I paused with my mouth 48Please respect copyright.PENANArD18ExDhq9
open ready to bite another piece out of my slice. I looked on at what 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHedDSGBGzG
was happening in front of me. I just hoped G-Dragon wasn't going to give48Please respect copyright.PENANAvf4PcAeTNc
Yang Hyun-suk the USB drive.copyright protection44PENANAD02edZTdh848Please respect copyright.PENANAZeQ0nuy1MY

I looked at G-Dragon and48Please respect copyright.PENANAaudo754JME
noticed that he still had the USB enclosed in his hand. I looked at his48Please respect copyright.PENANAqiTv765mZT
face wondering what he was thinking.copyright protection44PENANAxiCgaZhBXL48Please respect copyright.PENANAyY7oZvTywF

"Do you think he will give away the USB?" Seungri asked as he whispered in my ear.copyright protection44PENANA8OLmLfMc1g48Please respect copyright.PENANAwGaJ4iP81C

"Hopefully not," I whispered back. I even had my fingers crossed.copyright protection44PENANARFgTTuSNHa48Please respect copyright.PENANAMsUGX2M3oM

"No, we didn't change anything," said G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANAVetyvDxMeu48Please respect copyright.PENANAWXL4mLzgj5

I smiled and Seungri 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWPM6zRooZq
held his breath and let out a sigh of relief. The rest of us on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0MSVtQYfUm
couch seemed to have relaxed. Luckily, the managers hadn't read our body48Please respect copyright.PENANA1RkMVGxvWQ
language. They didn't even look at us. But Lee did.copyright protection44PENANAxnjjJ5ywhA48Please respect copyright.PENANABSFnZefnDe

"Thank goodness," said Yang Hyun-suk. "I thought you did. I'm glad you didn't."copyright protection44PENANAN8f419yUWf48Please respect copyright.PENANANE1GAuwyKr

I smiled a little more. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAULifxeW4JT
G-Dragon did the right thing which I knew he would do. But the problem 48Please respect copyright.PENANAUlMAJLPY8s
was far from over though. Now that our group members knew that he and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdW7fCHK9fu
were at war again, I had to get ready for the heavy storm ahead.copyright protection44PENANA4SuyqZbXLq48Please respect copyright.PENANAAafTpM7mRR

"But we can't start 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfMc1mVMbUV
recording the track now," said Collins. "It's a little late so they 48Please respect copyright.PENANAE7RMmut7EJ
would have to do it the day after tomorrow."copyright protection44PENANAsjNLCxQb4748Please respect copyright.PENANABeUR7kEeGv

I sat upright and alert.48Please respect copyright.PENANA6VhiWEeJP8
"The day after tomorrow? What are we doing tomorrow that we possibly 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEugwhD1LKF
have to record the track the day after?"copyright protection44PENANALRg0Vhatb648Please respect copyright.PENANAulTpd1JRgp

"Well, Sam," said Yang Hyun-suk turned to look at me. "The Toxins are going to have a TV interview tomorrow."copyright protection44PENANAJgYeOpeZnZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAmmlEEiiT18

"An interview?" Christine was the one who looked more surprised.copyright protection44PENANAqPjeBVMs6Q48Please respect copyright.PENANA1GDhdUVeFF

"But why didn't you tell48Please respect copyright.PENANATa1NzeOi55
us earlier?" I asked as I looked at Collins who smiled back at me. It 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIrr356mo0o
was then that it hit me and things became clear.copyright protection44PENANAASHQTD736i48Please respect copyright.PENANAw259ki3fxI

"Is that the surprise you were talking about yesterday?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAaQy94myimV48Please respect copyright.PENANAUqTVesa2Lf

"Yep," said Collins as he grinned.copyright protection44PENANAiMLB0mxMOE48Please respect copyright.PENANA8uHAyNHUbH

"This is one heck of a surprise, alright," said Zoey folding her arms.copyright protection44PENANADoxlfqYmt548Please respect copyright.PENANAjHJoQ3GUid

"Well, played," I muttered to myself as I looked away.copyright protection44PENANAFEVeN0BliX48Please respect copyright.PENANADdEw9SZjVL

"So, before the day ends, we better go get ready," said Collins. "You will also have to perform during the interview too."copyright protection44PENANAhBK2dLpLye48Please respect copyright.PENANAz4ghEO4lJg

"This just keeps on getting better," said Daniel, rolling his eyescopyright protection44PENANAqbDXwSnveR48Please respect copyright.PENANA32YNqPQ7J9

"What are we waiting for? Let's go," said Collins. "We don't have enough time in our hands."copyright protection44PENANAAUvw8iwJEP48Please respect copyright.PENANAlmnZTwSTQO

"You should have told us earlier, you know?" Mike said, as we the Toxins stood up to leave.copyright protection44PENANAHVrsXEdnpM48Please respect copyright.PENANAFpSVGwKLSt

"Then you should have thought twice before you all decided to leave for Paris."copyright protection44PENANABPYfMu7a0m48Please respect copyright.PENANA1WvZJWOA3y

It was then that the other Toxins realised that all this was payback. I wasn't surprised. I already knew.copyright protection44PENANA2Bgx7oQE8u48Please respect copyright.PENANAKpV7pPEhIu

The two managers and Lee went out of the room first. Just as we were about to walk out, TOP stopped me by holding my hand.copyright protection44PENANAuPqVhoAvL048Please respect copyright.PENANA5oTXjAu3ln

I turned to look at him 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwnj2n2ZbD3
and he had stood up from the couch, looking straight at me. I blushed 48Please respect copyright.PENANAKnsFvRu99d
and looked down at my feet. He always made me nervous when he looked at 48Please respect copyright.PENANADeBxcV8HYu
me like that.copyright protection44PENANAhnPfCCKJNL48Please respect copyright.PENANA4vRnyeqxq4

"We might have gotten away from our managers' fury today," said TOP. "But you and GD have a lot of explaining to do."copyright protection44PENANA6PmmnuLe9T48Please respect copyright.PENANABbr3QXVl64

"I know," I said as I turned to look at G-Dragon, who quickly looked away.copyright protection44PENANAJDJ9z1x9xj48Please respect copyright.PENANAzKjaiw5qd4

"Ya, a lot," said Daesung as he nodded his head. I could see he was trying to ignore that TOP was holding my hand.copyright protection44PENANA9PGZ5iCP2p48Please respect copyright.PENANAViAMG816Gs

"And don't try to come up with any excuses," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANAB8fXuCrgRA48Please respect copyright.PENANAbhDDluAgQH

"Don't worry, I won't," I promised. I just hopped G-Dragon wouldn't.copyright protection44PENANAaAeTJOVgYs48Please respect copyright.PENANAlprFzKbFao

Zoey and the others left the room and I was the last to walk out. I didn't want to look at G-Dragon, but I did.copyright protection44PENANAz7hg7nyKdB48Please respect copyright.PENANAK6GkSmsUt9

We looked at each other 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnEq0iMvS2l
for a while and I didn't know what I felt for him anymore. Maybe I was a48Please respect copyright.PENANAzoK13kLe0W
little hurt, but I was also so confused. I don't know. I couldn't tell.48Please respect copyright.PENANADK2k5VGxQa
Maybe he also felt the same.copyright protection44PENANA9OKoLf1dvS48Please respect copyright.PENANAGdP7e7TJ0W

But I wouldn't know and I wouldn't like to know what he felt. I walked out of the studio, closing the door behind me.copyright protection44PENANAOFs3zcRusP48Please respect copyright.PENANA4zkPBoamCa

I then realised that I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjgVlA0hhy7
had completely forgot to ask G-Dragon and TOP about the necklace Zoey 48Please respect copyright.PENANArfkhmyogip
bought for me from Paris. I guess that issue will have to come up 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcnYxdAWnXz
another time.copyright protection44PENANAX2Xfj4CSOP
