"Come on, Sam, please don't do this to us," Mike pleaded.copyright protection48PENANAHhNU5hbAmB52Please respect copyright.PENANAp9w0YgspRM

"Ya, we're your brothers and we're really worried about you," said Daniel.copyright protection48PENANAJbkxYkhVVK52Please respect copyright.PENANAZamZNodVpK

"Sorry, guys, I'm still not going to tell you," I said. "Well, not now at least."copyright protection48PENANAeY6SLGP8nu52Please respect copyright.PENANA5zxxAiGtMN

"You've never been this stubborn in your entire life," said Mike. "What's wrong with you?"copyright protection48PENANAT4MHZRYark52Please respect copyright.PENANATbWpcUGEkx

I shrugged. "Well, I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAqjINjwcxrB
guess it's because I don't know what to tell you. I've no idea what to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAhxbP5L8MeU
say. And I have no idea where I stand anymore."copyright protection48PENANAMbw7IurZpm52Please respect copyright.PENANAz86vyiqeWL

I continued to look at 52Please respect copyright.PENANAMn4ubo0oVs
my sad face in the mirror as I sat on the chair. My two brothers stood 52Please respect copyright.PENANAZd0a26WaSb
at either side of me, staring back at my reflection. I looked at them 52Please respect copyright.PENANA5rjbXRto5q
through the mirror and I could tell that they were feeling down and low.52Please respect copyright.PENANA9ROemZCmny
I hated that I had to put everyone in this situation, especially Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAKEkRw6ymeV52Please respect copyright.PENANAPnLPxOVuZN

Yesterday passed on 52Please respect copyright.PENANAF4fYgcPKBV
quite slow when everyone now knew that G-Dragon and I still weren't on 52Please respect copyright.PENANAaKNYYaYBwm
good terms with each other. And when we had to prepare ourselves for the52Please respect copyright.PENANA9lJVbhJ6LI
interview, we had to act like nothing was wrong or else Collins would 52Please respect copyright.PENANAUqN9o3meNX
be up to our necks if he noticed. The rehearsals went on just fine, but 52Please respect copyright.PENANAaXIYWH8UiF
afterwards, my group members never stopped bugging me about the whole 52Please respect copyright.PENANAhs10nch6j3
thing till evening, and I had still not said a word.copyright protection48PENANAR80DPZvNaX52Please respect copyright.PENANAOetBoSEK7s

"Come on, guys," said 52Please respect copyright.PENANAIhprgm8ohq
Zoey who sat directly behind me, facing another mirror and a makeup 52Please respect copyright.PENANA4yS5yfhQmB
stylist was attending to her. "Last night, I tried my best to make her 52Please respect copyright.PENANATaPnMdfrYn
talk before we even went to bed. But she wouldn't budge. I even 52Please respect copyright.PENANATHFj8VGgkX
threatened to rip Mr Panda's head off, but she saved the panda before I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAHovzt4PLVb
could even start the execution."copyright protection48PENANA8W8E4R8vRy52Please respect copyright.PENANAmOmcb9prBo

That was true. Last 52Please respect copyright.PENANAOv5tOdpuuJ
night didn't end well for both Zoey and I in our room. I was pretty 52Please respect copyright.PENANAsb7YLB2BmX
lucky that I even saved the panda before she could rip it's head off. 52Please respect copyright.PENANANJM9WYjlpU
And we ended up going to bed without even saying goodnight to each 52Please respect copyright.PENANAKepPIe37Jy
other.copyright protection48PENANASBddtKj16y52Please respect copyright.PENANARbJY9vAc6X

"I know you're all dying52Please respect copyright.PENANA9UHV3DTnYj
to know," I said as I turned to look at Zoey's back. "But believe me 52Please respect copyright.PENANAhJyHygVCoE
when I say that I don't know what to tell you."copyright protection48PENANAXXHXBwW7k652Please respect copyright.PENANAafQUeZpObw

"You've been saying that52Please respect copyright.PENANAMlqthu6aR5
since yesterday," said Christine who sat in front of the mirror beside 52Please respect copyright.PENANAu9O3QnkLZI
mine, her hair was being curled by one of the hair stylists. "We're 52Please respect copyright.PENANAq9Yg3cfs1r
tired of that, you know?"copyright protection48PENANA4s3c674fCV52Please respect copyright.PENANAZOMqh3UneM

"Then it's best you guys stop bugging me about it until we meet with the others after the interview."copyright protection48PENANAOux1I0L12S52Please respect copyright.PENANAtJVhMME6yD

"I agree," said Daniel. "I hope you and GD clear everything up."copyright protection48PENANAAZQhWsOTz852Please respect copyright.PENANAPYNNfQ0uj2

"I even tried to talk 52Please respect copyright.PENANAWjQJJ7NEv1
about it with G-Dragon yesterday," said Zoey as the stylist put her on 52Please respect copyright.PENANAqZLmgy9VEH
some eyeliner. "But he never texted me back nor picked up his phone to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAzuGmiVdiqw
talk. He just went cold on me."copyright protection48PENANAZDA3QGaUVN52Please respect copyright.PENANAlmPb5yjTdP

That was GD, alright.52Please respect copyright.PENANAVDOG04e90T
I kept that to myself. Saying it out loud will just create a big mess 52Please respect copyright.PENANAQAowWGr9ZR
in the dressing room and I wouldn't be able to cool Zoey down.copyright protection48PENANAPKhnLZnx1q52Please respect copyright.PENANAGkewvk5Odi

"I bet he didn't expect it," said Mike. "I think it's better for him not to talk to anyone."copyright protection48PENANApCpfUmIIfh52Please respect copyright.PENANAE8VsPWx35x

"True," said Christine.copyright protection48PENANAQfVqiL6tG252Please respect copyright.PENANAXV7ls42Ue1

"I just hope he is okay," said Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAgwMyTyxh5z52Please respect copyright.PENANAMUl0qQkwFy

I rolled my eyes. Of 52Please respect copyright.PENANAOjGKLwGjzL
course he was okay. That's if he wasn't drinking his life away. Maybe I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAQxHYTa2V4g
should warn Zoey. But she already knows about his habit, does she? I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAWRbhRC8c8O
hope so.copyright protection48PENANAHuc7K6tsOJ52Please respect copyright.PENANAKW8rHUYndx

We dropped the topic 52Please respect copyright.PENANA945R2Y14U6
about G-Dragon. Our minds went on to what's going to happen during the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAlRXx9O9h1h
interview. I was pretty nervous about it since it was our first TV 52Please respect copyright.PENANA6MeeeW9cjm
interview together as a group ever since we came here to Korea.copyright protection48PENANAKEZF4irbL752Please respect copyright.PENANAKtrPktOlyJ

It was five minutes till52Please respect copyright.PENANArUAprJeA1f
the interview and Collins came in to check on us. And he came with the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAS717mg3wsm
one person I wasn't expecting to see for the rest of the day. Yang 52Please respect copyright.PENANATcPk2aNRvl
Hyun-suk.copyright protection48PENANAe1E1zxz7OE52Please respect copyright.PENANAAXfbnHVBhW

I looked down pretending52Please respect copyright.PENANAQ94Sgr8jXB
not to have seen the two managers enter the room. I saw them through 52Please respect copyright.PENANAGQOwaQHYIc
the mirror and luckily I was being applied a little bit of blush by the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAkjaAvxhq9y
makeup artist.copyright protection48PENANAHw9TDUZ7nN52Please respect copyright.PENANAn0IrSZT1jR

"You're all looking glorious today," said Yang Hyun-suk.copyright protection48PENANAR8rQNw8eIT52Please respect copyright.PENANAD0HrxSieR0

He fully got our attention now. We all turned to look at him and muttered 'thank you'.copyright protection48PENANAmWU0XuyxBn52Please respect copyright.PENANArbkCLPa3fj

"You have to get ready," said Collins. "You will be on any minute now."copyright protection48PENANAciUmbxgbFE52Please respect copyright.PENANACCjk4ckYeE

"Don't worry, we have been prepared for this our whole lives," said Zoey. "We won't let you down."copyright protection48PENANAYwMqmAWvPF52Please respect copyright.PENANAPRExibpBqh

"I sure hope so," said Collins. "I'm warning you, Zoey. Don't say anything stupid."copyright protection48PENANApcBkdzOL6q52Please respect copyright.PENANACRsWteMDh2

"Does that mean I can't joke around, then?" Zoey shrugged.copyright protection48PENANA9jI3FUBW5g52Please respect copyright.PENANAWTFgeJszIG

"You can," said Yang Hyun-suk. "But not about him." He pointed to Collins.copyright protection48PENANAA4Mnu9YrFO52Please respect copyright.PENANAdxxR4Q3urt

"That, I agree," said Christine.copyright protection48PENANA640HodhdZo52Please respect copyright.PENANAL3kd0OsMrJ

I smiled when I looked at Collins, giving a face to Yang Hyun-suk.copyright protection48PENANAD8HmcmhNim52Please respect copyright.PENANAPoDuESe7rW

It was now time for the 52Please respect copyright.PENANANFtlxxcA1D
interview and when we went to face the audience on set, we were welcomed52Please respect copyright.PENANA3MHo0IcsvE
with a round of applause. And the TV interviewer welcomed us so kindly 52Please respect copyright.PENANAck3QOII2Pa
too.copyright protection48PENANA3TqQhVZgmF52Please respect copyright.PENANAYDQsZnZbX1

The interview went on 52Please respect copyright.PENANAP1OxqOfDhK
perfectly. We had so much fun talking about our lives and we were asked 52Please respect copyright.PENANAht5kjT22WS
questions from the audience that weren't so complicated. We were having a52Please respect copyright.PENANAdVv3nuqmGn
good time, especially with Zoey blabbering on and making the others 52Please respect copyright.PENANAnvpc2P0ish
laugh.copyright protection48PENANA4tJ5a8jsli52Please respect copyright.PENANA3KL854287Y

We were then asked 52Please respect copyright.PENANA0kTwog1ODH
personal questions about our dating life. That was one topic I never 52Please respect copyright.PENANAc1dBdfreyU
liked talking about. But I had to put up a face for the sake of the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAvBEgKKlMTs
audience and the fans watching on TV.copyright protection48PENANAQZrylDUCqd52Please respect copyright.PENANALTNEqbVrZy

As usual, the questions 52Please respect copyright.PENANA9cAmOOCf2a
were mostly directed at me. As usual, I told the audience that I wasn't 52Please respect copyright.PENANAaxLPOwz9is
ready to date yet and that the right one would come when I least 52Please respect copyright.PENANAC3mpINBDeB
expected it. And then the question I hadn't thought of in a while, 52Please respect copyright.PENANAcoNNKCBmRD
raised to the surface.copyright protection48PENANAZu6qkolkEI52Please respect copyright.PENANAw2aiRZOr87

"So, what about you and G-Dragon?" the interviewer asked. "Don't you think you two were meant to be together?"copyright protection48PENANAZJbIOmR8Oc52Please respect copyright.PENANAULagaS3Mwi

There was a 'whooo' that52Please respect copyright.PENANAnJGbwrN7NF
came from the audience. I should have prepared myself for this. But I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAKkHVCzUr03
was dumbstruck as I looked at the interviewer who couldn't stop smiling 52Please respect copyright.PENANAyUOJbZCfL8
at me, waiting for my answer. He had a very mischievous smile.copyright protection48PENANAqFbSdxw89W52Please respect copyright.PENANAy9ReknF8vt

"," I hesitated. I 52Please respect copyright.PENANANfNvbq45S5
probably looked dumb in front of the audience if not the whole world. I 52Please respect copyright.PENANA8r0WabWMrH
twirled my curly hair and didn't know what to say next.copyright protection48PENANAl9rszLRV5w52Please respect copyright.PENANAVZRNecbUkG

"No, way," said Zoey who52Please respect copyright.PENANAn8WbD7BIdu
sat beside me. "G-Dragon and Sam can never date. Besides, it's not like52Please respect copyright.PENANAOmVOj60fSr
they would date given that we aren't going to say here for long."copyright protection48PENANAD4fPN4bEc052Please respect copyright.PENANAXOrOBF0Nzk

I looked over at Zoey 52Please respect copyright.PENANAtXsq86yKPL
and I could tell that she was offended by the question, now that she and52Please respect copyright.PENANAeD7asqgsF9
GD have some romance between them.copyright protection48PENANARDG3vTA11K52Please respect copyright.PENANAUCXlrz1rmA

"Long distance 52Please respect copyright.PENANAMQyfhGmPrb
relationships do work out sometimes," said the interviewer. "And a lot 52Please respect copyright.PENANAAFPIQi86LO
of us would like to hear what BK has to say about it."copyright protection48PENANAYnTpPsbGog52Please respect copyright.PENANAfFrd1SM2k9

I gulped and found it pretty hard to speak. Everyone was expecting an answer from me and I didn't know what to say.copyright protection48PENANAc1lsR9x2OJ52Please respect copyright.PENANAD60blhSH6j

"GD and I are just good friends," I said. "I don't think of us dating."copyright protection48PENANA3FnJITDiVF52Please respect copyright.PENANATHZJpP1xVM

"But what of those dating rumours that were going around?" the interviewer asked.copyright protection48PENANA3U2WkSpvyN52Please respect copyright.PENANAmbsOouGbx0

"We cleared all that in 52Please respect copyright.PENANAla7lmsDeaJ
our last interview with the media at YG," I said. "It's not like the two52Please respect copyright.PENANAx3rwMQmOoi
of us ever went out on a date. People like to make up stories. And ever52Please respect copyright.PENANABKt3ySxf44
since that video got aired on YouTube, that's when all the dating 52Please respect copyright.PENANAgpfnLBQoP0
rumours started."copyright protection48PENANAMLP8eGhLJ652Please respect copyright.PENANA8n4zURpgFO

"Which was Zoey's fault, by the way," said Mike who sat on my other side.copyright protection48PENANAvMLSvuL8NH52Please respect copyright.PENANAygz2k7VSnZ

"You don't have to remind me, thank you very much," Zoey looked at Mike as though she was about to bite him. Mike smirked.copyright protection48PENANANQBQMVIbrh52Please respect copyright.PENANAXDpc1bOSzD

"But not only did the 52Please respect copyright.PENANATI1XiVPHcv
video send stories flying," said the interviewer. "When you were done 52Please respect copyright.PENANAwKM5N6dJZA
with your interview, G-Dragon saved you from falling and that still 52Please respect copyright.PENANAIWe89fjX7T
sparked more rumours."copyright protection48PENANAZd2OlguD2d52Please respect copyright.PENANAB1CCYUyOCK

"I don't see why people 52Please respect copyright.PENANAj8v6djdq2c
continued with the rumours, to be honest," I said. "He just prevented me52Please respect copyright.PENANA1L9fTivdfD
from falling. It's not like the two of us were ballroom dancing or 52Please respect copyright.PENANA7REJtDD2rg
anything."copyright protection48PENANAJx0vpvZbEM52Please respect copyright.PENANAMLoiRCB43D

"Don't you like GD?"copyright protection48PENANASsDuiqp1CQ52Please respect copyright.PENANAg4opjiIPvX

That was one question I wasn't sure of answering myself. And I had to be careful with what I was going to say.copyright protection48PENANAiB4lpqCU4E52Please respect copyright.PENANAsCP7miK0lc

"I like G-Dragon, but only as a friend," I said. "A good friend."copyright protection48PENANA8Nb8jBEiMj52Please respect copyright.PENANAg8XEqOh1Sk

Saying that made me feel52Please respect copyright.PENANAF9o3zImhyR
a little guilty. G-Dragon and I still weren't on good terms. If I had a52Please respect copyright.PENANAf1u48RnTRI
chance to set things right, I would. But right now, I felt my 52Please respect copyright.PENANA57R2MhQ3jJ
relationship with G-Dragon was going nowhere.copyright protection48PENANA5FLJ949z6L52Please respect copyright.PENANAoYTN2twoK4

"So, you don't like like G-Dragon?" the interviewer asked.copyright protection48PENANApomuKMUmHY52Please respect copyright.PENANAg05L5eCt7t

"No, not in that way, no," I said, shaking my head.copyright protection48PENANA1QMdY5ODoB52Please respect copyright.PENANAccB3enk5rD

"Well, I think the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAPQCIDEb93W
audience and the rest of the world will agree with me that you two make a52Please respect copyright.PENANAejXj52xIvE
really cute couple," said the interviewer.copyright protection48PENANAWuhIdqNmZT52Please respect copyright.PENANAbIRNL5b5bD

I blushed. That's what 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJ1tlJ6ZVg3
everyone was saying on social media nowadays. The audience gave out 52Please respect copyright.PENANASunQNsTlao
murmurs of approval. I felt Zoey shift a little uncomfortably. This was 52Please respect copyright.PENANA0m6R9SXlX9
awkward for me more than it was for her. I wanted to say sorry, but I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAYHar2Uy2QO
kept it to myself.copyright protection48PENANA8piuU2hOpZ52Please respect copyright.PENANA5Jisz6Vss6

"I agree with you," said Daniel. "They just look so cute together."copyright protection48PENANANqPzDOFrr452Please respect copyright.PENANARstYkCQiYO

"I also agree," said 52Please respect copyright.PENANArWvCnxwVzn
Christine as she giggled. "To be honest, I really thought the two would 52Please respect copyright.PENANAKF628F947B
date, but sadly, she doesn't feel that way for him."copyright protection48PENANA3oyk7MKV9K52Please respect copyright.PENANAaZ4DXpgNHe

I looked at both 52Please respect copyright.PENANAB9a7LyEiue
Christine and Daniel and I couldn't tell if they were joking around with52Please respect copyright.PENANAFfTLi2rr6z
me or not. Maybe they were doing this just to intimidate me because of 52Please respect copyright.PENANA3gy7Uvwaje
G-Dragon and I. But they were also upsetting Zoey too. Christine knew 52Please respect copyright.PENANApVnA299HrD
better.copyright protection48PENANAOha7M594Tz52Please respect copyright.PENANAV7SPTbRkCY

"Yes, too bad indeed," said the interviewer. "So, moving on...."copyright protection48PENANA3HZShCGW4852Please respect copyright.PENANATFfsN9Xkkh

The interviewer soon 52Please respect copyright.PENANAyJcWkf6tWx
started to talk about the other Big Bang members and we talked about how52Please respect copyright.PENANA7RF0HybzTO
great it was to collaborate with them. That cooled things down a 52Please respect copyright.PENANAxMtMehWcCg
little.copyright protection48PENANA17wzrElczv52Please respect copyright.PENANAub0G7kWdOS

As the interview was 52Please respect copyright.PENANALVKrWsZ71S
coming to an end, we performed one of our hit songs in front of the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAVyFplUGh7i
audience. After a round of applause, the TV interview was over.copyright protection48PENANAXoM8vzdFD752Please respect copyright.PENANAyBuyiBTePH

I had to admit, it was 52Please respect copyright.PENANA7BDR2zj2Hl
pretty awesome and we had so much fun. At the end of the interview, we 52Please respect copyright.PENANAVCTA2fvIwC
took a few pictures with some people from the audience and even with the52Please respect copyright.PENANA15dvDv7xKX
interviewer.copyright protection48PENANAeGPey6Qf3V52Please respect copyright.PENANAfRySJBs3E9

It was soon time to leave the TV studio, but we were all back in the dressing room busy chattering about the interview.copyright protection48PENANAn42TDuyZH752Please respect copyright.PENANAozLiaNxFw4

"I had fun today," said Mike.copyright protection48PENANAuFvhN1Q1Ht52Please respect copyright.PENANAhy9v4N0clK

"I hear we will be having more interviews like this one," said Christine.copyright protection48PENANA9WaYaI41X752Please respect copyright.PENANA9ACIslkVoY

"That will be great," said Zoey as she had her phone in her hand.copyright protection48PENANAWlcYePtNPa52Please respect copyright.PENANA4MxQ5HECmb

"Trying to call, G-Dragon?" I asked as I came to stand beside her.copyright protection48PENANAUkQqBDssF952Please respect copyright.PENANAHEKQ9OEa1Z

"Ya, I left him a message before the interview and he hasn't replied."copyright protection48PENANAWO66NgORhM52Please respect copyright.PENANAVbzxT2TdXh

"Try calling him again," said Mike.copyright protection48PENANAZd7bcm1F9R52Please respect copyright.PENANAb24JS9qxMN

"Better not call him now," said Daniel. "I bet he still isn't going to answer."copyright protection48PENANAQ4bGuNkXf052Please respect copyright.PENANAItsskBhZMj

Zoey sneered at Daniel. "You should shut up for once. You have already made me upset because of what you said in the interview."copyright protection48PENANA6bPchCt6uK52Please respect copyright.PENANAYHuyenB7Bz

"What did I say?" Daniel looked confused as he turned to look at me.copyright protection48PENANATtY1FaoHQy52Please respect copyright.PENANApNBuwuDX2q

"Don't mind her," I said as I held my brother's shoulder and Zoey went to the other side of the room to call G-Dragon.copyright protection48PENANAyHCJn7wI4M52Please respect copyright.PENANAKLUcefOveA

Christine smirked and I knew that what she said during the interview was just to get on Zoey's nerves.copyright protection48PENANAIbYxofaRmE52Please respect copyright.PENANAPdhjMwHnEj

"Still no answer," Zoey said as she came back to join us. "Now I'm getting worried."copyright protection48PENANABg8AhOKGvB52Please respect copyright.PENANAX36zxD4bA6

"I hope nothing serious has happened to him," said Daniel.copyright protection48PENANAe3iRNFYko352Please respect copyright.PENANAClRwy5LmB0

"Well, we have to leave and meet with the others soon," I said. "At YG."copyright protection48PENANA66e4ECkOtG52Please respect copyright.PENANAXqdfJ0Lrnp

"We're meeting there? Why?" Zoey asked.copyright protection48PENANAt5XBFepqUV52Please respect copyright.PENANAKltQU1tYc4

"Tae and the others think it's a good place to meet there. We can't go anywhere else."copyright protection48PENANA19Yj0LZZ5n52Please respect copyright.PENANA4PpVlX17jC

"Okay. I hope GD shows up," said Zoey.copyright protection48PENANA2cuhg8TBXn52Please respect copyright.PENANA7h2lwMlhdJ

"Ya, me too." I rubbed my neck, hoping that GD was okay.copyright protection48PENANAhqtf28tszo52Please respect copyright.PENANAHX4bOZciXp

Lee came in the dressing room and announced that we can leave.copyright protection48PENANAnAxlUy7Txd52Please respect copyright.PENANAm2eLYAIZH2

"I told the managers that we will need to use the car so they left together," said Lee.copyright protection48PENANAhApLRGTLhR52Please respect copyright.PENANABPjEaQqw7E

"Thanks, Lee. We better go."copyright protection48PENANA9zhCOkLiMk52Please respect copyright.PENANAfPCk0rjdJg

We left the TV studio 52Please respect copyright.PENANAC6iRRhrAg9
and while we were in the car, Zoey continued to call G-Dragon, but to no52Please respect copyright.PENANADSYXw9NXFV
avail. I decided to call Taeyang instead.copyright protection48PENANAG9VevPNCJk52Please respect copyright.PENANACUKefLGyYp

"Hello? Sam?" Taeyang answered.copyright protection48PENANAQ0UfLMWFxd52Please respect copyright.PENANAPBw8snpTYF

"Hey, Tae, how are you?" I asked.copyright protection48PENANAwGMOjB84TU52Please respect copyright.PENANA2Cx0z4am1P

"I'm okay. I saw your live interview."copyright protection48PENANApA4kPzaCcT52Please respect copyright.PENANAhEK2TZNzyM

"Ya, em, that's not why I called. Have you by any chance checked up on GD to see if he is coming?"copyright protection48PENANAW3TRiFEekc52Please respect copyright.PENANAZnnvwPTVJR

"I tried reaching him a few times this morning, but nothing. Is something the matter?"copyright protection48PENANAsQTfFcQNgK52Please respect copyright.PENANABLt9M3dWqf

"Well, ya. Zoey has been trying to reach him since yesterday, but he hasn't called or texted back."copyright protection48PENANAIFkM09maLz52Please respect copyright.PENANAMITwKMvym4

"Let me see if I can call his apartment to see if he is okay," said Taeyang.copyright protection48PENANA3ICXAVCeaW52Please respect copyright.PENANAklrIQXxJTh

"Okay, are you already at YG?"copyright protection48PENANArCNkSswIgN52Please respect copyright.PENANABu34DQ8RMy

"Yes, I'm here with Seungri."copyright protection48PENANAtZsNLtX8DJ52Please respect copyright.PENANA6zg050NBz9

"Okay, we will be right there."copyright protection48PENANAIHskE2fhhq52Please respect copyright.PENANAFUu7Cl4a4Y

I cut the line and turned to Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAdI212VuyEK52Please respect copyright.PENANArFsuK5kSW7

"Taeyang has no news either," I said.copyright protection48PENANAl7JOVvhSEV52Please respect copyright.PENANAq3GH3MHRnh

"His phone keeps ringing but he isn't answering," said Zoey.copyright protection48PENANABmD3Gh6Wyo52Please respect copyright.PENANA03bvaNQfXV

"Why don't you try and call him, Sam?" Lee asked as she turned to look at me from the front passenger's seat.copyright protection48PENANAmM6pO9kiHY52Please respect copyright.PENANAdoBGTlMdeJ

I went blank. Why was 52Please respect copyright.PENANAkFM1mQN4Hb
Lee asking me to call G-Dragon? Zoey was already freaking out like the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAlHewdpk3Fi
rest of us that he wasn't answering her calls. Did Lee think G-Dragon 52Please respect copyright.PENANAYTGzzzVlNa
would respond if I tried to call him?copyright protection48PENANA336MS1iaTW52Please respect copyright.PENANA47PR8cHWgp

"Why?" I asked. "I bet he won't answer me as well."copyright protection48PENANA6vjJzZ1GWz52Please respect copyright.PENANA7C7m9kLtor

"Can you at least try?" Lee asked.copyright protection48PENANA4jmaJbj3t152Please respect copyright.PENANALnksWU2SgP

"There is no harm in trying," said Daniel. "Who knows, he might just answer."copyright protection48PENANA2w58jYaC8352Please respect copyright.PENANA2lXSc64U2k

I looked down at my phone in my hand like it was some creature ready to bite my nose off at any moment. I hesitated.copyright protection48PENANAzfzSY9SZPO52Please respect copyright.PENANAjaWqw6Liz9

What would everyone 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJlw4NtYPmf
think if G-Dragon really did answer my call? I would be toast, 52Please respect copyright.PENANAFoACgNJlHL
especially with Zoey. The two were like a couple now and it wouldn't 52Please respect copyright.PENANAG1VDssJdKi
feel right. What the heck, it wouldn't 'be' right at all. What was I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAnuDTyrnxgJ
going to do?copyright protection48PENANAzU8W4R7oVA52Please respect copyright.PENANAMW8nypahKS

"What are you waiting for?" Mike asked, snapping me back to reality. "Do it."copyright protection48PENANAqY7w7rvh3E52Please respect copyright.PENANA3qTZ3lrMzb

Everyone's eyes were on 52Please respect copyright.PENANA4WFIQe9eMq
me now. And I knew they weren't going to let go of me that easily. I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAXzm5WVu6de
stared at Zoey to see what she thought.copyright protection48PENANAkCTUuR4nQT52Please respect copyright.PENANAZgFSfIeHuO

"Go on, Sam," said Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAbqOkmTbth752Please respect copyright.PENANATzLziCNrQz

I gulped and tucked a lock of my hair behind my ear. I unlocked my phone, went to my contacts and called G-Dragon.copyright protection48PENANA4I5cfcDKtH52Please respect copyright.PENANARN9eT59ocm

I put the phone to my 52Please respect copyright.PENANADbCi3S0iAv
ear and his phone was ringing. I closed my eyes hoping he wouldn't 52Please respect copyright.PENANA6t5R2ntPOk
answer. The car had just entered the YG premises. The phone was still 52Please respect copyright.PENANApG7yU1E3pQ
ringing.copyright protection48PENANAoOkhJP9Nc052Please respect copyright.PENANAq213l5Vlov

"Looks like he isn't answering," I said, when the car stopped. My phone still to my ear.copyright protection48PENANAHoqvIMoUgG52Please respect copyright.PENANARvZWn1kQR8

"Just hold on for a few seconds," said Lee as she got out of the car.copyright protection48PENANA1kp7wEjapN52Please respect copyright.PENANAbgPjPKktNK

The rest also got out and I was left alone. There was no hope left. I knew he wasn't going to answer.copyright protection48PENANARNBc5l1e8d52Please respect copyright.PENANAkeNmh8sduQ

Just when I thought the line would go dead, I heard a clicking sound and I felt my heart stop.copyright protection48PENANAePCFllrJfH52Please respect copyright.PENANAJllIiIJCzA

"Hello, Sam?"copyright protection48PENANAqh2PoyuIJT52Please respect copyright.PENANALKQB3Gloa9

I was startled. He 52Please respect copyright.PENANA8unVQE3iRx
answered. Oh, no. This was what I had feared. My jaw dropped and no word52Please respect copyright.PENANA9ATuicd1ON
could come out of my mouth. All this was a surprise.copyright protection48PENANAvBH7NNsO1A52Please respect copyright.PENANACAytbB9w0j

"Sam, are you there?"copyright protection48PENANA2gqFVL0nvf52Please respect copyright.PENANAF9O24FG8Xy

Thank goodness he was okay. He did sound a bit strange though. Must be that he was drunk or he wasn't feeling too well.copyright protection48PENANA5Vx7LVGfEp52Please respect copyright.PENANAG78ACrMPtB

"I know you're there, Sam. Are you worried about me?"copyright protection48PENANA890QhNDJCF52Please respect copyright.PENANAD5bbymNHTN

"," I 52Please respect copyright.PENANA1yWQA1vhas
hesitated. What was I supposed to say? That yes, I was worried or snap 52Please respect copyright.PENANAQRAZrcqe2U
out of your drunken state and get your butt over here?copyright protection48PENANAkFWLkRxkf252Please respect copyright.PENANAPFZ0QxnDfg

"Has he answered?"copyright protection48PENANAAkY7rJ38ZH52Please respect copyright.PENANArhPn7qpCHz

I jumped on my seat and cut the line. Lee was standing by the door of the car looking at me.copyright protection48PENANAx8RxY8lBRY52Please respect copyright.PENANA5yrFxSSY6U

"Where are the others?" I asked as I looked outside the car.copyright protection48PENANAhcDdXY4ujk52Please respect copyright.PENANASWASWqpk4F

"They went inside," said Lee. "We better go."copyright protection48PENANAxUFv16f5ef52Please respect copyright.PENANABvXqT4QiHy

I nodded my head. By the52Please respect copyright.PENANASN6jtDclCj
time I was stepping out of the car, my legs were shaking. And the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAgufQmchMwl
colour on face seem to have faded away because I felt really pale.copyright protection48PENANAMMnDklMFXD52Please respect copyright.PENANAs7RpxKuo2c

"So, did you talk to him?" Lee asked again.copyright protection48PENANAEeQirNgwiA52Please respect copyright.PENANAWVZ2etGrOi

""copyright protection48PENANAQPuvlwCBBR52Please respect copyright.PENANAK5NZVabdXI

"He answered, didn't he?"copyright protection48PENANAQoEd2YyOEw52Please respect copyright.PENANAypPqPnakLd

I looked at Lee and I knew I couldn't lie to her. "Yes," I answered.copyright protection48PENANAriKiAc5RIn52Please respect copyright.PENANAxI8xKn0rOP

Lee's mouth dropped and she looked at me with so much shock.copyright protection48PENANArzdW5ysI9452Please respect copyright.PENANAKyUyxPIJ3G

"I knew it!"copyright protection48PENANAAZsecucLiR52Please respect copyright.PENANArC6h2WEchq

"Shut up, will you? You're going to attract too much attention. Let's go. And don't say a word to anyone."copyright protection48PENANAiK932Jf8BY52Please respect copyright.PENANAqO8ylTWmlK

Lee put her index finger52Please respect copyright.PENANAb5j5DQVmzY
on her lips and the two of us went inside. The others had already gone 52Please respect copyright.PENANA21A8iD4XPm
upstairs. Lee and I went to join them in the studio.copyright protection48PENANAw2xJZDhrmr52Please respect copyright.PENANAnfawOwpKSL

"Hey, guys," I said when I came in with Lee.copyright protection48PENANAwWrYbEtnpL52Please respect copyright.PENANAv3QO9uF4Qf

"My little panda," said Seungri as he came to hug me. "You looked so beautiful during the interview."copyright protection48PENANAeIwoLy81HJ52Please respect copyright.PENANA3TgE2yh7v6

"Thanks," I said as I blushed and Seungri took me by the hand and took me further into the room.copyright protection48PENANAZdMxWLaecx52Please respect copyright.PENANAtTmEpbaPW3

"You guys were just awesome," said Taeyang as he and I both hugged.copyright protection48PENANAFIt6HEKa2a52Please respect copyright.PENANAAr6rfgVVkM

"Thanks. Any news of GD yet?" I asked.copyright protection48PENANAWhTtFE2NFJ52Please respect copyright.PENANAaoGq2IZjQu

"I tried calling his apartment," said Taeyang. "But nothing."copyright protection48PENANAxFWjcT4n7h52Please respect copyright.PENANAqknNYNY8DV

"Did he answer when you called him?" Zoey asked me.copyright protection48PENANAUN0nUH2ES452Please respect copyright.PENANAbdmiECyAxT

"No, he didn't," I answered.copyright protection48PENANAPPmIi2nkP252Please respect copyright.PENANAnHi38kM7DC

I should be given the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAC4W0RUNQ3q
Best Liar Award because Zoey and everyone else believed me for some 52Please respect copyright.PENANALfE8xjK6Ui
reason. I looked at Lee and all she could do was nod her head a little 52Please respect copyright.PENANA0h0ik8C6gg
to assure me that it was okay that I had lied.copyright protection48PENANA4nH0GUULh152Please respect copyright.PENANAJSlFScAG3E

"Maybe it's best we go and check up on him ourselves," said Seungri.copyright protection48PENANA2cP2AJKCnD52Please respect copyright.PENANA6OTLXr4HxY

"That's a good idea," said Mike.copyright protection48PENANAHds3WL5j6V52Please respect copyright.PENANA0yf0QA9tHq

"Maybe we should wait and see if he shows up?" I suggested.copyright protection48PENANAmaj3bZY5Kg52Please respect copyright.PENANAKqi56aiHQl

"No, I'm getting really worried," said Zoey. "It's best we go."copyright protection48PENANA7NsWQ2FBF352Please respect copyright.PENANAlXaeJ7FNPd

"I'll go. Who's coming with me?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection48PENANAemgHqcswvz52Please respect copyright.PENANAMPL2QBD05k

"I'm coming with you," said Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAsSKLWVLU1w52Please respect copyright.PENANAqPKIVQTdxK

"Me too," said Christine.copyright protection48PENANAa8jC49FKKk52Please respect copyright.PENANAyTIJ7rQNfF

"Won't you go along, Sam?" Mike asked.copyright protection48PENANANZH4G8h9FN52Please respect copyright.PENANA02vL4lnHmt

"No, it's best I stay here," I said.copyright protection48PENANAI7FtSBoEvp52Please respect copyright.PENANA1MiMveDora

"Okay," said Taeyang. "Come on, let's go."copyright protection48PENANAaGytjDDYno52Please respect copyright.PENANA904RJbiAZy

Taeyang, Zoey and 52Please respect copyright.PENANAfZALLE79mt
Christine left the studio. I went over to the couch to sit. I felt it 52Please respect copyright.PENANACofVbK9O9B
was a good thing not to go. He was already upset with me. But I was 52Please respect copyright.PENANAZiB3alftVe
still surprised he had answered my call.copyright protection48PENANAjbn1g49xdO52Please respect copyright.PENANA1beBWZg49D

"Why didn't you go with them, Sam?" Mike asked.copyright protection48PENANAkWVZpOBOs652Please respect copyright.PENANAxM1NHcyR1I

"Why should I go?" I asked.copyright protection48PENANAeCMM65qJ4O52Please respect copyright.PENANAs0033boiEk

"Because everyone listens to you," said Seungri as he came to sit beside me.copyright protection48PENANA8n0vogzyNN52Please respect copyright.PENANAxFvLgsLwwU

"I wonder why he didn't answer your call, though," said Daniel.copyright protection48PENANAn8Kj7a7IYA52Please respect copyright.PENANAa3GbQoopfp

"Maybe it's because he is ignoring all of us," I answered, as I looked at my fingernails.copyright protection48PENANAPddC0kIq4M52Please respect copyright.PENANA7Hp8Ktj9MX

"I don't think so," said Mike. "One thing I can guarantee for sure, he would listen to you no matter what."copyright protection48PENANAfcafHyvh7j52Please respect copyright.PENANAtjCY4TrPqX

"Listen to me? For he and I not to be on good terms, he doesn't."copyright protection48PENANA5urQNz0ViZ52Please respect copyright.PENANAJA0qMROah3

Lee was still standing in front of me and said, "call him again, Sam."copyright protection48PENANAv7cJKc3sD752Please respect copyright.PENANAAoL0wvtPFf

I looked at Lee as though she had read out my death sentence.copyright protection48PENANAeSko72XDj552Please respect copyright.PENANAN9yq7DjysK

"Are you kidding me? I just told everyone that he didn't answer," I said.copyright protection48PENANAWpznfmWfif52Please respect copyright.PENANAwckwD6orhF

"Come on, Sam, the others aren't here," said Lee. "Especially Zoey."copyright protection48PENANAfOnrx7DBzg52Please respect copyright.PENANAvS4gSAMlqs

"Wait, what's going on?" Seungri asked as he looked at me and then at Lee.copyright protection48PENANAJO83dg5aTp52Please respect copyright.PENANABeBaEJNXig

"G-Dragon answered Sam's call," said Lee.copyright protection48PENANAfPOPd4baku52Please respect copyright.PENANAIOt2l69Jyr

"For real?" Mike and Daniel asked at the same time.copyright protection48PENANApziM0PUEqt52Please respect copyright.PENANAp4jtlb37xu

"Yes," I answered.copyright protection48PENANAVah3dukiFd52Please respect copyright.PENANAz9IbjmU7kc

"But why didn't you say anything when the others were here?" Seungri asked.copyright protection48PENANAHV3wKgBWrV52Please respect copyright.PENANAo20R5lYf5x

"Zoey," again, Mike and Daniel answered at the same time.copyright protection48PENANAqQvIDvyx9Z52Please respect copyright.PENANAHuB0XXc14J

"What does this have to do with Zoey?" Seungri looked even more confused.copyright protection48PENANA159j9mOtFt52Please respect copyright.PENANAvETePcAJkV

"Zoey likes G-Dragon," said Mike.copyright protection48PENANAHnpKT91v6s52Please respect copyright.PENANAWIYWA4iyjn

"And those two now seem like a couple," said Daniel.copyright protection48PENANAqwjVfXrNvB52Please respect copyright.PENANA60RI1OFdQK

"If Zoey knew that G-Dragon answered Sam's call...."copyright protection48PENANAMwGVPPhDiW52Please respect copyright.PENANAXloQAe3aYn

".....she would be jealous and throw a tantrum," Daniel finished. The two high-fived each other.copyright protection48PENANA70jwKdGMIM52Please respect copyright.PENANA6U65RG99ft

I was wide-eyed by my brother's enthusiasm with all this. Looks like they already knew about G-Dragon and Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAf9jz5ywwl152Please respect copyright.PENANAwluo3vcJJ2

"I'm not going to ask how you know," I said as I folded my arms.copyright protection48PENANA87xO3nEl1W52Please respect copyright.PENANAtHoSxY6B95

"We figure things out easily," said Mike with a smirk.copyright protection48PENANAh9WBGHPmuy52Please respect copyright.PENANAYg04lRLu10

"Looks like it runs in the family," said Lee as she raised an eyebrow at me.copyright protection48PENANA9JHsiN1Pjn52Please respect copyright.PENANAYymsWqY99H

"I knew there was a reason you delayed to get out of the car," said Daniel.copyright protection48PENANAQrvogyMUTN52Please respect copyright.PENANAcCoAuWzBxJ

"At least you didn't tell Zoey," said Mike.copyright protection48PENANARbWONCwCZ052Please respect copyright.PENANAHwZHBkzmPB

"Wait, I'm so confused 52Please respect copyright.PENANAnN9Jg69efj
here," said Seungri, blinking his eyes as though trying to see if all of52Please respect copyright.PENANAWrVl2qiB2P
this was a dream. "Zoey likes G-Dragon. And the two are now like a 52Please respect copyright.PENANAkJmkqXE0ju
couple but without the whole world knowing. And G-Dragon only answered 52Please respect copyright.PENANABGiKqyRAN6
to Sam and not to Zoey and that might upset her because....."copyright protection48PENANAb8JTB2GDSZ52Please respect copyright.PENANATKyP5Afoch

"G-Dragon likes Sam," finished Lee. She quickly covered her mouth after blurting that out.copyright protection48PENANA0Jrv7I4UCX52Please respect copyright.PENANAex1ARrxwsR

I turned to look at Lee with a frown. "Seriously? You can't possibly be too sure about that."copyright protection48PENANAHu9EiWhOzh52Please respect copyright.PENANA03yjOZRFzE

"It kind of looks like he does, Sam," said Daniel. "It's not that hard to notice."copyright protection48PENANAOKpyD1BjEt52Please respect copyright.PENANAMsokiuUxS6

"Well, I didn't notice," said Seungri.copyright protection48PENANAjFcLaktee652Please respect copyright.PENANAP7EQHvif2K

"Let's just skip this 52Please respect copyright.PENANA63OFmDEdid
topic and wait for the others to get here," I said. "By the way, aren't 52Please respect copyright.PENANAS4GhoYMjwF
Daesung and TOP supposed to be here?"copyright protection48PENANAcWAlBThTHR52Please respect copyright.PENANAqmM4dtAwJC

"They would be here in a few minutes," said Seungri.copyright protection48PENANAawBA5fBGyg52Please respect copyright.PENANAhPF5v2Iaf1

"Should we tell them about all this?" Daniel asked looking at me.copyright protection48PENANAaSVnD6I7lX52Please respect copyright.PENANAo864qu3cOA

"I don't know," I said as I rolled my eyes. "I really don't care if you tell them or not. That's if they don't tell Zoey."copyright protection48PENANAdxTOTvHbop52Please respect copyright.PENANASeWEia8SGR

"I'm just worried about Zoey," said Lee. "Should we tell her?"copyright protection48PENANA2yVE81TKIr52Please respect copyright.PENANAvYHb3ddMnt

"Are you kidding me? That's one thing we shouldn't do," said Seungri. "Who knows what she would do."copyright protection48PENANA1SkXgX3Y4p52Please respect copyright.PENANAOLBUQ2pUed

"But keeping it from her will just make things worse, especially when she finds out later on," I said.copyright protection48PENANAViXP7QlO1J52Please respect copyright.PENANAu6rrLJBTCi

"Just think, Sam," said Mike. "Will it be right to tell her today?"copyright protection48PENANAe4iaIrbCcT52Please respect copyright.PENANAL8gsjkFx73

"No."copyright protection48PENANA4dMoa2le0q52Please respect copyright.PENANA0VOCQEEfyT

"Exactly. Zoey will feel hurt that G-Dragon answered you and not her. She will get really jealous."copyright protection48PENANADWJBMQr7Ft52Please respect copyright.PENANAs30TuLD6Fg

Mike did have a point. 52Please respect copyright.PENANApqoFTI0zf8
Telling Zoey was going to be like suicide. She was going to be hurt and 52Please respect copyright.PENANADg4rSU6x9E
we first had to clear things up with GD and I.copyright protection48PENANAQTy93hAfTM52Please respect copyright.PENANAqBIqvcc8jS

"You're right," I said. "No one should say anything."copyright protection48PENANA8X0UlaWHpX52Please respect copyright.PENANAoIjNodvpNL

"Agreed." The rest said as they nodded their heads.copyright protection48PENANA83UREGI5No52Please respect copyright.PENANAxq1BRUvXrE

We waited for the others52Please respect copyright.PENANACSgkjLxwTR
in the studio. TOP and Daesung came in a few minutes later. We told 52Please respect copyright.PENANAoizH5YUBnH
them about G-Dragon's recent behaviour. But we didn't tell them about 52Please respect copyright.PENANAnU7pvZj1WL
the supposed love triangle.copyright protection48PENANAzEi8OmpoBi52Please respect copyright.PENANAGzEWUXIsuC

"These guys are taking 52Please respect copyright.PENANAjSUSz0QuCd
forever to get here," I said as I went over to the window to check at 52Please respect copyright.PENANAbZ8joEiIFf
the parking lot. It was now close to three in the afternoon.copyright protection48PENANAbJfbEAmBiL52Please respect copyright.PENANAulP8iJ60cA

"I told you to try and call him again," said Lee.copyright protection48PENANAyqOtis90yX52Please respect copyright.PENANADvsyo2yfwb

"It's best we call the others first," Seungri said as he pulled out his phone. "I'll call Taeyang."copyright protection48PENANAp8CHgq3FPE52Please respect copyright.PENANAsIbB2AfkiV

"Please do," I said as I sat back down on the couch.copyright protection48PENANAX0occ2NyD552Please respect copyright.PENANAANhpVA92Al

"Don't stress yourself,"52Please respect copyright.PENANADeQ5Me8ltF
said TOP who sat beside me and placed his hand on my shoulder for 52Please respect copyright.PENANAwWoHyqiNKA
comfort. "They should be back by now."copyright protection48PENANAjcw8FOAOP952Please respect copyright.PENANAJln0KjATmb

"Tae, where are you?" Seungri asked. "We've been worried sick. Did you find GD?"copyright protection48PENANAMehoVyPZdE52Please respect copyright.PENANAeZp55ckdxO

We paused for a while as we looked at Seungri, waiting for what's to come.copyright protection48PENANADaF1nR3bpH52Please respect copyright.PENANAT3KhLiH46s

"What? He isn't at the apartment?" Seungri asked looking surprised.copyright protection48PENANAhJTNRyCrns52Please respect copyright.PENANAEQN2QymrsI

That sent a different atmosphere around the room. I felt my face drain of colour as I started to think of the worst.copyright protection48PENANAB9GSyCqnBE52Please respect copyright.PENANACGH2MMe60L

"Tell them to come back," I said to Seungri. I held my forehead. This can't be happening right now.copyright protection48PENANA2fPHgdykoX52Please respect copyright.PENANAUTPFaBYSF5

"I told you to call GD,"52Please respect copyright.PENANAkkV8nMGJd8
said Lee after Seungri cut the call. "They haven't found him and the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAsQP9SCW7JW
day will end without us knowing where he is."copyright protection48PENANA1GGUtyt60Q52Please respect copyright.PENANATEQJj1liT1

"Don't blame me for this," I said. "This is not entirely my fault."copyright protection48PENANAyB0fuzRUWt52Please respect copyright.PENANAneljnJ54tj

"Just call him," said Daesung. "He answered you the first time. He would likely answer again."copyright protection48PENANAzYIoFYBejZ52Please respect copyright.PENANAdV9342F19p

"Fine," I took out my phone and dialled G-Dragon's number. I put the phone to my ear.copyright protection48PENANAclGSgarJgr52Please respect copyright.PENANAY33OMnQ8FJ

This time, G-Dragon didn't delay to answer like last time. After three rings, he picked up.copyright protection48PENANAAP2A4waWr652Please respect copyright.PENANA93YvmlesqH

"GD, where are you?" I asked. Everyone's ears perked up to listen.copyright protection48PENANAp058oL60Zq52Please respect copyright.PENANALDCUGHXmJ7

"Why?" He sounded normal. Maybe he was sober?copyright protection48PENANA0bLG41QvL752Please respect copyright.PENANALHaOwXbm5R

"We're so worried about you. We need to know where you are."copyright protection48PENANAXlWZW0w6XX52Please respect copyright.PENANA6fU4KhqZJQ

"Don't worry about me. And tell the others that I'm fine."copyright protection48PENANAdmYjun4Bn452Please respect copyright.PENANAHvujqb1nxL

"Then come here at YG. We're worried sick."copyright protection48PENANA2ngN4kPUQA52Please respect copyright.PENANAujtF8ZDjlI

"Aren't you more worried about me?"copyright protection48PENANA1OWYNTZkZW52Please respect copyright.PENANAbsY5wInXH6

That question moved me. I was worried. Dead worried. I needed him back here safe and sound. We all did.copyright protection48PENANAhdjgwODBq152Please respect copyright.PENANAOoCjI2uKq2

"Yes, I am," I said. "I'm really worried. Why don't you come here and talk."copyright protection48PENANAFspVgtg6o752Please respect copyright.PENANAwVlZAtYdNk

For a moment, he didn't say anything. All I got was the static silence from the phone.copyright protection48PENANAHqVDoJwn3w52Please respect copyright.PENANAWYMU4jDrhl

"Hello? Are you there?"copyright protection48PENANAklJDBgrfRR52Please respect copyright.PENANAy6KaptdTeD

"Ya. I'm here."copyright protection48PENANAgwkFsA9JGx52Please respect copyright.PENANAVKyhJ9KImy

"You will come, right?"copyright protection48PENANARnXM1lwyJA52Please respect copyright.PENANA2jwPeA9R2r

"I guess I should."copyright protection48PENANA43WOGx48NW52Please respect copyright.PENANAcAxXLWqYQE

"Yes, please do."copyright protection48PENANA04skJVVTEC52Please respect copyright.PENANACMoa37jOQG

"I'll be there in a few minutes."copyright protection48PENANAqv0ni2JPAt52Please respect copyright.PENANAmT0TJetT6w

"Okay."copyright protection48PENANApEwltdTymH52Please respect copyright.PENANAki6SgSPGQF

I cut the line. All this52Please respect copyright.PENANAkssIDvQXkH
was just heartbreaking. I couldn't help but feel all this was my fault.52Please respect copyright.PENANAEGAEzjT3cZ
He was hurting and even as we talked on the phone, I could tell. I was 52Please respect copyright.PENANAAwiGoyyeep
still stunned that he was talking to me and calmly too.copyright protection48PENANAumLXHvTDox52Please respect copyright.PENANATzSlhvR8sb

"He'll be here," I announced.copyright protection48PENANAfO3gcmiWbS52Please respect copyright.PENANAP7SqLsJEwV

"Thank goodness," said Daniel as he stared up at the ceiling sighing in relief.copyright protection48PENANApBxWX1aQzx52Please respect copyright.PENANAE6sWNRul5J

"You should have done this earlier," said Lee. "He clearly listens to you."copyright protection48PENANAx4Tj1BOUed52Please respect copyright.PENANALZiDlA8dJB

I rolled my eyes. There was no need to remind me. He might have listened to me now, but I wouldn't expect him to do so later on.copyright protection48PENANAsu1wLeS3b452Please respect copyright.PENANAozIhZuKI9g

Ten minutes later, Taeyang and the others came in the studio.copyright protection48PENANAWBGuyDvIu552Please respect copyright.PENANAENm6K9Yfv3

"Any news?" Zoey asked.copyright protection48PENANAg199laL95052Please respect copyright.PENANAYh3hUoS3BB

"He will be arriving shortly," said Mike.copyright protection48PENANAmyvo4gDXkO52Please respect copyright.PENANAF0aoh9T2S2

"You talked to him?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection48PENANA1hqILYlhHP52Please respect copyright.PENANAiwQFDAPBQl

"No, Sam did," TOP answered.copyright protection48PENANAmXRv7cGSmL52Please respect copyright.PENANAFPCI6x6YAI

Zoey, Christine and 52Please respect copyright.PENANAAgIKE0Ux2M
Taeyang looked at me as though I was an alien. I wanted to slap my face.52Please respect copyright.PENANAAljq0W1PxR
I should have warned the others not to say anything.copyright protection48PENANATJjo7oFLlZ52Please respect copyright.PENANAacHNUNk1MU

"You talked to him? Is he okay?" Zoey asked in a rush.copyright protection48PENANAAnh052YqjG52Please respect copyright.PENANAJnas8Ps2mv

"Chill, Zoey," I said as I stood up and walked up to her. "He's fine. He told me he will be arriving soon."copyright protection48PENANAgFD7bKjRDG52Please respect copyright.PENANAPWQ8nR4pGB

"That's good news," said Christine.copyright protection48PENANADwpXVxlAiH52Please respect copyright.PENANAgROYEILYKy

"Are you sure?" Zoey asked me.copyright protection48PENANAAS4RSaURBe52Please respect copyright.PENANATtW4W4Tp6g

"Don't worry, I'm sure he is coming. He gave me his word," I said.copyright protection48PENANAxRUaY5ViXy52Please respect copyright.PENANAUWdL4BC90j

Zoey hugged me and I patted her on the back for comfort. It looks like she cared more about G-Dragon than the rest of us did.copyright protection48PENANAZB5oy1VUBe52Please respect copyright.PENANALhbzfQi1P2

"I'm just glad you 52Please respect copyright.PENANAzIwvNsAHRH
called and he picked up," said Zoey after she broke away from me. "Had 52Please respect copyright.PENANAXMDbxIMaRM
you been trying to reach him after you called the first time?"copyright protection48PENANABc6G4ZRYQs52Please respect copyright.PENANAuD3Fcivvjk

Before I could answer, Mike said, "we tried calling him a few times before he finally picked up."copyright protection48PENANAdnj7yictB952Please respect copyright.PENANAxT34pQwZyo

My heart settled. I thought he would tell her the truth. Looks like he wasn't that silly enough to provoke her right now.copyright protection48PENANA2AL8Zj9UeL52Please respect copyright.PENANAGvakGI2tTU

"Did he tell you where he went?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection48PENANA8QXfw2en0552Please respect copyright.PENANAfnxj3JBzeV

"No," I replied. "He just told me he was fine and that you all shouldn't worry. I asked him to come here and he agreed."copyright protection48PENANAQes9l1sxv352Please respect copyright.PENANATMPXQeOmem

"He is going to get a scolding from me," said Zoey, folding her arms.copyright protection48PENANAHxEsGDMPy052Please respect copyright.PENANAKVSVfzDi2w

"And she is back," I heard Daniel mutter and Mike who sat beside him was snickering.copyright protection48PENANAAHQyWnAbLB52Please respect copyright.PENANAciUJBXtdwH

"Just sit down, please," I said trying to calm my best friend. "All that matters is that he is fine and he will be here."copyright protection48PENANAgBPILaKdIf52Please respect copyright.PENANA8quXokccHr

Zoey listened to me and sat down. Taeyang and Christine joined her. Before I could sit down, Lee stood up and walked up to me.copyright protection48PENANAhpNVStzEi752Please respect copyright.PENANAzsnroC01V3

"Can we talk?" Lee asked.copyright protection48PENANAFTOvrLT2WE52Please respect copyright.PENANAy7ltQWqj9X

"Huh? Why?"copyright protection48PENANADcgtV1DFel52Please respect copyright.PENANA1inwgMQtYy

"Come on," said Lee, as she held my arm. "I want to talk to you about what happened during the interview. Excuse us, guys."copyright protection48PENANAVvLIrEb0ju52Please respect copyright.PENANAUy1hZpU0qQ

Lee was still holding on52Please respect copyright.PENANA3ZXosOkT8u
to my arm as we both left the room and we were in the hall. We went 52Please respect copyright.PENANAQ9NeF30wwZ
into another studio room which was empty, away from the others.copyright protection48PENANA7YoWuQHnSD52Please respect copyright.PENANA5rx6JxvExW

"Why did you bring me 52Please respect copyright.PENANAuAWrYogjio
here?" I asked as I turned to Lee who closed the door behind her. I knew52Please respect copyright.PENANAO8yBndEnKb
all this wasn't about the interview. copyright protection48PENANA2wQiZLjDry52Please respect copyright.PENANAnPDVWmsr0Z

"It's G-Dragon," Lee answered.copyright protection48PENANAZm4K4vpgvI52Please respect copyright.PENANAovAkXzJdS1

She didn't hesitate to say it and she sounded serious. What would she probably want to talk to me about him now?copyright protection48PENANALDG9AbZhyS52Please respect copyright.PENANABH99ixnXU8

"What's the matter with him?"copyright protection48PENANAVBoLUnxd0Y52Please respect copyright.PENANA9iXMdU8Gl9

"I'm worried about 52Please respect copyright.PENANAGJFg4CPNPI
what's going to happen when G-Dragon comes here and tells everyone why 52Please respect copyright.PENANAOrpYBIvYFq
he did this and why he is still mad at you."copyright protection48PENANAMZlQKpl9GR52Please respect copyright.PENANA7PI5BWZKCk

"You're scared he might possibly tell Zoey that he likes me?"copyright protection48PENANASrvyA5JAmi52Please respect copyright.PENANAUj4zz8boW1

Lee nodded. I sighed and52Please respect copyright.PENANA6KtwJ4ee3U
closed my eyes. I knew she was right and this might just bring in a 52Please respect copyright.PENANAEaJnflke5X
horrible argument amongst ourselves.copyright protection48PENANAsiUQ3OeB2f52Please respect copyright.PENANAz0gDzPMLeJ

"And what do you want me to do?" I asked.copyright protection48PENANAzOfUE0k09052Please respect copyright.PENANANlugRdk6ro

"Talk to G-Dragon yourself and solve this once and for all."copyright protection48PENANAR1snA3skDP52Please respect copyright.PENANA16yKuN6P2c

"How? Now that everyone knows, they would want to know what's really going on."copyright protection48PENANAD67xXblbMn52Please respect copyright.PENANAMBc3fMT2x7

"I have myself to blame 52Please respect copyright.PENANALltfBksWrU
for saying all that yesterday. But right now, you guys have a song to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAks1SdwGjlI
work on and when things get messy, you know what might happen. And you 52Please respect copyright.PENANAw8jIbyv4B3
don't want your managers finding out about this."copyright protection48PENANArmbGgPGBQQ52Please respect copyright.PENANAcmoFCZ05Vr

I had to admit that Lee 52Please respect copyright.PENANAZgT186xOqS
was right. But what was I going to do now? I just couldn't tell the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAwW1QEcpah0
others a lie. I had lied too much already and I wasn't ready to do so 52Please respect copyright.PENANAdunB9ZA94w
again.copyright protection48PENANACHS44t7xNL52Please respect copyright.PENANAB3Mu5VBCK1

I looked on at Lee and I52Please respect copyright.PENANAvgXw7CIwM0
could tell she was feeling bad about telling everyone yesterday that GD52Please respect copyright.PENANAxZuUBDTbNX
and I weren't on good terms. But I couldn't blame her for it.copyright protection48PENANAmqRtXOFi0r52Please respect copyright.PENANAIo1vT6quJa

"What I'm I going to do?" I asked as I held my forehead feeling stressed out. "I don't know how I'm going to tell these guys."copyright protection48PENANAGrNR84HOFx52Please respect copyright.PENANAversKz4t5R

"I don't know," said Lee. "Maybe you should find a way to talk to GD alone."copyright protection48PENANAFhfxmk0uRO52Please respect copyright.PENANAtCQYxrBqDp

"You're right," I said. "But he should be here by now."copyright protection48PENANAfee7HcWmvW52Please respect copyright.PENANAomOpRHwibf

I quickly pushed myself 52Please respect copyright.PENANAtHtV9eueHA
past Lee, reached for the door and found myself in the hall. Just as I 52Please respect copyright.PENANA6bdW9KoLa2
was heading towards the elevator, the doors flew open. And as though I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAaypYYhGuAS
knew he was coming, G-Dragon stepped out.copyright protection48PENANAOboB3wFLll52Please respect copyright.PENANAK3zdYJstY9

I breathed out a sigh of52Please respect copyright.PENANA34kg1u0pfb
relief. He was okay. Thank goodness. He didn't look drunk either or was52Please respect copyright.PENANAspKSoI95dJ
he? It didn't matter. I caught up with him just in time.copyright protection48PENANAj0DyxZTytL52Please respect copyright.PENANAXXNxbLgDee

"There you're," I said as I got closer. "Thank goodness you're okay."copyright protection48PENANAmJZBRHNN4i52Please respect copyright.PENANANii8ykCzJR

He didn't say anything 52Please respect copyright.PENANAKchu4GdeMr
as he looked at me. His deep dark eyes were trying to find its way to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAXKpKhBwyfL
mine but I was avoiding them. I didn't want to look him in the eye and 52Please respect copyright.PENANAM235bCpNb9
see how he felt. I didn't want to lose focus with what I was about to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAFWmXrrDFFp
say.copyright protection48PENANAKSu9uxF9i052Please respect copyright.PENANA6D9wnr7TZm

"You were worried about me," he said, his voice with almost no emotion.copyright protection48PENANAvC18bz747B52Please respect copyright.PENANAFMpISAliow

"Of course I was worried. And everyone else too."copyright protection48PENANAPulO5cwT0A52Please respect copyright.PENANAr3tO0UfEzV

"You of all people should have been the least worried."copyright protection48PENANAbLsGUWdA6w52Please respect copyright.PENANA4GyecVFjPF

That was cold. I looked him directly in the eye. He was hurting alright. And he was hurting me too.copyright protection48PENANABB8CKkbSoj52Please respect copyright.PENANAGvr5djFzB3

"I don't care what you think, Kwon Ji Yong," I said. I was kind of surprised that I had called him by his real name.copyright protection48PENANAteNP2T2zM252Please respect copyright.PENANA637zS8t7M3

"Excuse me?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow.copyright protection48PENANA9YOCEIySjF52Please respect copyright.PENANA2RJB5WwLfm

"You heard me." I took a52Please respect copyright.PENANAqVRS15bGEN
step towards him. "I don't care what you think of me anymore. I'm tired52Please respect copyright.PENANAKKRSkJ0NRN
of this crap. It's time we laid the cards on the table once and for 52Please respect copyright.PENANARUEBvJx2vN
all."copyright protection48PENANApUhyw1SITg52Please respect copyright.PENANAoVIgNKlZr0

G-Dragon shrugged. "What?" copyright protection48PENANA1nvOcxIe6u52Please respect copyright.PENANANbLE45o5Tf

"I want to know what issue you have with me. In fact, I don't want to know, I need to know."copyright protection48PENANAhgt5S8Or1852Please respect copyright.PENANASKawmFgTHL

"Aren't you just acting delirious?"copyright protection48PENANA6q2nZzpRhi52Please respect copyright.PENANAG6Hpmv9IvA

"How I wish I was," I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJiMuXRAlWt
took another step forward. "But even from miles away I could tell you 52Please respect copyright.PENANABOeLlArBu9
hate me for some reason and I want to know why."copyright protection48PENANA8iGD7TbP7i52Please respect copyright.PENANAnbf5ACAKl5

"Now you're just crazy."copyright protection48PENANAkpyOvrWkSX52Please respect copyright.PENANAl4o8zlZ9GV

"Crazy to know the truth? Yes, I am."copyright protection48PENANAsYovmn4Lel52Please respect copyright.PENANACiJQ34rvGV

He didn't say anything. 52Please respect copyright.PENANAE47T9IwKsR
He just looked at me still with no emotion. That irritated me a lot and I52Please respect copyright.PENANAQOWeWvzVEg
felt like shaking him to get the truth out of his mouth.copyright protection48PENANA4nEK0MDcCL52Please respect copyright.PENANAQgyA7CFz7m

"I thought I was going to explain that in front of everyone," said G-Dragon.copyright protection48PENANAuXb3LHuI1m52Please respect copyright.PENANAvLqCFAkbkN

"And how am I so sure you aren't going to tell a lie?"copyright protection48PENANAGul4ZIs3uG52Please respect copyright.PENANA3aBZoxvYt9

He didn't answer and I knew I had him.copyright protection48PENANApy44j5QXht52Please respect copyright.PENANAejqMUyoz7w

"I don't want to involve the others with something personal. It's going to affect them. Especially Zoey."copyright protection48PENANAJMqVQcCkVD52Please respect copyright.PENANAWDhmfWXA8i

G-Dragon looked surprised. I bet he didn't expect me to know about him and Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAHB83G7L8bf52Please respect copyright.PENANAnbsYbRwGQZ

"I know you wouldn't like to hurt Zoey, at all," I continued. "That's why you and I need to resolve this issue now."copyright protection48PENANAPBOTF8Yw5g52Please respect copyright.PENANAQ4jgRdOgNW

"What issue?"copyright protection48PENANAZP3qKTDmey52Please respect copyright.PENANAMJz36PZ3p7

I shrugged. "I don't 52Please respect copyright.PENANAmMjPLuGhbw
know. You tell me. I know it's not about what happened after the Lotte 52Please respect copyright.PENANAh1BAisO7IB
World incident when I suggested that we should all participate in 52Please respect copyright.PENANA3vlDyrsyvR
writing the lyrics for the song, it's something else. And you have been 52Please respect copyright.PENANAGREZGpunHG
giving me a hell of an attitude because of it."copyright protection48PENANA0Wa8ZQgLYr52Please respect copyright.PENANAUYIwz0Zn7H

"Nothing is wrong, Sam."copyright protection48PENANA1N2QHIYGe452Please respect copyright.PENANAYbckOLMhjh

"I'll believe you when I stop seeing the hurt in your eyes."copyright protection48PENANAWeT0FETi0852Please respect copyright.PENANA809M0QcveU

G-Dragon took one step 52Please respect copyright.PENANAb9STFsTFP1
closer to me and that left a small gap between us. I held my breath for a52Please respect copyright.PENANAmOcz80lUiF
second. That was sudden and I tried to keep my composure. Looking at 52Please respect copyright.PENANAcqFmdFcqar
him made me weak in the knees and I felt like at any moment, I would 52Please respect copyright.PENANAkmBdfhF9Wu
fall to the ground.copyright protection48PENANAR141a4RqQQ52Please respect copyright.PENANAajjnTsoemG

I was so caught up in 52Please respect copyright.PENANATz6zVkf8Kp
his eyes. And with him so close, I couldn't break away from his spell. I52Please respect copyright.PENANAA5Mbi1sXbo
hated him for this. I hated him for a lot of other things too. How he 52Please respect copyright.PENANAsmHMJAe7PB
made me feel like all I wanted was to be in his arms.copyright protection48PENANARRDUHkCG0R52Please respect copyright.PENANANJaUi5exeZ

I had been locking all these feelings I had for him for the sake of so many things. For the group, for my career. For Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAKX6EYLiR4i52Please respect copyright.PENANAXO4JZnLskW

I wanted to push him 52Please respect copyright.PENANAQNiyz19O8Y
away. I didn't want to him so close to me. His manly cologne filled with52Please respect copyright.PENANApWHzQZF4xT
rich spices intoxicated me and I just wanted to breathe all of him in 52Please respect copyright.PENANA4uI8dIwYaR
me.copyright protection48PENANA0Wk4Xu9PUZ52Please respect copyright.PENANAV1EdAefJ2o

He continued to look at 52Please respect copyright.PENANAIskp1apHfW
me and at that moment time had stopped. Everything around me seem to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAAjrjsF1YEc
disappear and it was just only me and him left alone in the world.copyright protection48PENANAFMRiGzDjfE52Please respect copyright.PENANAPzeuMOJ2yM

"Would you be able to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAqgeKFgU5Xa
take away the pain? My pain?" he asked as he came closer to whisper in 52Please respect copyright.PENANA2yutRW9TVN
my ear and his deep husky voice made my heart beat faster and I felt 52Please respect copyright.PENANA5Lmjf98YbG
light headed.copyright protection48PENANAb0ChEA3Ws852Please respect copyright.PENANAKBWZmCfhHc

I didn't say anything. I52Please respect copyright.PENANArKLVeCSnwN
couldn't say anything. He had me under his spell and he knew it as his 52Please respect copyright.PENANAaBywVOG4MR
lips brushed against my cheek leaving behind electric sparks, making his52Please respect copyright.PENANAKxtHxQjM71
way towards my lips.copyright protection48PENANAfs4zx23GRX52Please respect copyright.PENANAZyMKu0nmnT

I felt his hand on my 52Please respect copyright.PENANA9xvI4rwKvj
waist and he pulled me closer to him. Our bodies touched and his touch 52Please respect copyright.PENANACgR6XoWhb3
on my waist sent chills down my spine. His lips were now so close to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAibC4V64jss
mine. Any wrong move and I would kiss him. I tried to get myself under 52Please respect copyright.PENANAcC0Il49RPE
control, but I couldn't. I was caught in his web and I was too light 52Please respect copyright.PENANAbsV2zSrw9C
headed to break away.copyright protection48PENANAFwKxPr6tLm52Please respect copyright.PENANAzsNcxJjC2M

"Only you, my little kitty," he said as he looked at me with those dreamy eyes of his, "can take this pain away."copyright protection48PENANA7WmKe0khXM52Please respect copyright.PENANA4fp4XK97BZ

I closer my eyes ready 52Please respect copyright.PENANAMNrHP0zgwJ
to receive his lips. I wanted to kiss him so badly. I couldn't help it. I52Please respect copyright.PENANAT6bGjIpCks
just wanted him to get on with it. I was so thrilled to ride the road 52Please respect copyright.PENANAopHNtFyDMa
of ecstasy.copyright protection48PENANAqcfuLMwPso52Please respect copyright.PENANACzX3gN4Q3B

Then a wave of dizziness hit me.copyright protection48PENANAN8UxFKYMdJ52Please respect copyright.PENANAzXILD1t3EO

"No."copyright protection48PENANA8lGv5Uvqct52Please respect copyright.PENANAw3ddRHTpkG

I took a step back and 52Please respect copyright.PENANAzWfwZwj4mn
my head was pounding like crazy. What just happened? For a moment, I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAGVkoGYqa24
didn't recognise where I was and the floor beneath me was spinning. What52Please respect copyright.PENANAYy8cMZTFpd
was happening to me?copyright protection48PENANAdCFs6reDgH52Please respect copyright.PENANAmY9Bv97Pdu

"Sam, are you okay?" I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAdUpyi6wIhz
heard G-Dragon's voice, it felt like I could hear his voice from a 52Please respect copyright.PENANANg7WsUVlzk
distance, but he was standing right next to me.copyright protection48PENANA14PWBvGAhU52Please respect copyright.PENANAzWjIyPSGE6

I looked at the floor 52Please respect copyright.PENANAaS0AqiGX1Y
and felt like I was going to puke all over. I bended over trying to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAwPeELGyH28
breathe and held my knees to support myself.copyright protection48PENANAkqf0VlVrL752Please respect copyright.PENANA2B5mjDbcjQ

"Sam," came Lee's voice behind me. "Are you okay?"copyright protection48PENANAUYJzqQ1Fui52Please respect copyright.PENANAitIi39BK6C

I was soon regaining my bearings and I was able to steady myself. I took in long deep breaths, slowly at a time.copyright protection48PENANAmwmbsXH9yY52Please respect copyright.PENANAIDsWieDQVF

"Hey, what's happening here?" I heard the door of the studio room open and Zoey's voice.copyright protection48PENANA4SojTkFOLq52Please respect copyright.PENANAZXg4jAHvM1

I straightened myself up52Please respect copyright.PENANAl4u3nydYij
and I realised that G-Dragon was right behind me for support. His hand 52Please respect copyright.PENANAB1X3YfhB6c
was on my back the the whole time and I hadn't even noticed. Lee was 52Please respect copyright.PENANAh6aybu8S0V
already there, looking at me with concern.copyright protection48PENANAWFoGfPxhu152Please respect copyright.PENANATl0opnWClf

"I'm fine," I said. I was feeling a lot better now. "I was just feeling nauseous."copyright protection48PENANAzQyV20TKar52Please respect copyright.PENANAWWhUZf9hRg

"I hope you aren't sick," said Zoey as she approached us.copyright protection48PENANAJek8yese3d52Please respect copyright.PENANAt9mEHx9Qq9

"No, Zoey, I'm fine, don't worry."copyright protection48PENANAEZT3G9Sdqn52Please respect copyright.PENANALkvLJU8Fxt

"Come on, we better go inside," said G-Dragon, his hand still on my back. "You look really pale."copyright protection48PENANAfZeNVhOO1Z52Please respect copyright.PENANAVtqcnpsxGj

I nodded. I couldn't 52Please respect copyright.PENANAOasbPaJZ09
help but realise that all of this was just weird. How had I become so 52Please respect copyright.PENANA8LuExdyFT6
sick all of the sudden? Did I need to go for a check up just to be sure 52Please respect copyright.PENANA9Pzz1XZtvF
that I was alright? I don't know.copyright protection48PENANAgKeASNOk1R52Please respect copyright.PENANANjQguGrdFr

When I came into the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAnOdSsK51qZ
room, I was soon surrounded by the others asking questions all at the 52Please respect copyright.PENANA7zOH8QE8ka
same time if I was alright. Their random questions almost made me dizzy 52Please respect copyright.PENANAO8uEoYkPc0
again.copyright protection48PENANAyFRrIxBBL152Please respect copyright.PENANAhAOusgfyhF

"Guys, make room or else she is going to faint," said Lee, trying to move people aside as I came in futher into the room.copyright protection48PENANAY01cOWtCKu52Please respect copyright.PENANAypem6ndLvx

"People, I'm fine," I said as G-Dragon still followed behind me to the couch. "You don't have to worry about me."copyright protection48PENANAB1ePB7CqrE52Please respect copyright.PENANAVjFpY4ojUB

"Are you okay?" TOP asked. "What happened to you?"copyright protection48PENANAiZj9r2H2Ds52Please respect copyright.PENANAjbb8GDoVcG

"Nothing, I just felt dizzy," I answered.copyright protection48PENANA4Bt5Nh1gUM52Please respect copyright.PENANAAK5P6cdkXJ

"Are you sure? You don't need a doctor?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection48PENANALwNZmp6YQy52Please respect copyright.PENANART3xi1BHlw

"Believe me, I'm okay," I managed to put up a smile.copyright protection48PENANAD8yWiZYZ2B52Please respect copyright.PENANAiEHtMo6bjj

"Well, at least the person we wanted to see is here," said Zoey, her hands on her hips as she looked at G-Dragon.copyright protection48PENANAs6cVc0cdg752Please respect copyright.PENANASU3YK9aXu8

"Ya, we were worried sick about you," said Seungri.copyright protection48PENANA02DO1Zd8Y352Please respect copyright.PENANAGl1JSkLu16

I quickly sat down on 52Please respect copyright.PENANA0jLIMy6TKq
the couch, not ready for what's to come next. I wasn't in the mood to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAcClfB5pM2T
start arguing with G-Dragon. I would let the others handle him.copyright protection48PENANAHBcfxufwti52Please respect copyright.PENANAUJfWt7gfCh

"Where did you go? Why weren't you picking up my calls?" Zoey stood right in front of G-Dragon like an angry girlfriend.copyright protection48PENANA7VpkRBl4PB52Please respect copyright.PENANAlCA7knFrgp

"I was around," said G-Dragon.copyright protection48PENANAbPEOEFNROL52Please respect copyright.PENANARt2dIEi8ql

"Around where? Be more specific!"copyright protection48PENANAVvm8LTC0q652Please respect copyright.PENANA2l5hhypxN1

"Zoey, chill," said Lee. "You're angry and you're not okay."copyright protection48PENANAix2HSTidX752Please respect copyright.PENANAP9EpgZMWq3

"I was sick and worried about him. We all were."copyright protection48PENANAP8XtWB9KtX52Please respect copyright.PENANAliwowf2Ont

Well, not me. That's according to G-Dragon of course. I looked away remembering those words and they still stung like hell.copyright protection48PENANAvptRxeLafb52Please respect copyright.PENANAapOfH6O6EC

"I was around town, just going here and there," said G-Dragon.copyright protection48PENANAgxJieBcxP952Please respect copyright.PENANA8tLNT2MGZd

"You have a lot of 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJlwgJ2vMQT
explaining to do," said Daesung. "But now, we have other things to look 52Please respect copyright.PENANAf1j4g0a47P
at. Why you and Sam are arguing again."copyright protection48PENANAFFiD8ffiZJ52Please respect copyright.PENANAGgis3cvPSu

I looked at Daesung and I52Please respect copyright.PENANA3CPzTzBols
would've told him that we weren't necessarily arguing. I kept my mouth 52Please respect copyright.PENANAiAuBEKCPPK
shut. I felt more of the victim and it was best to keep quiet on my 52Please respect copyright.PENANAEv0XY49tT2
part. It was then that I remembered what Lee told me when we were in the52Please respect copyright.PENANAYXFNwym8XI
other room.copyright protection48PENANAgu8JmGY7Qd52Please respect copyright.PENANABfi5QXQtNF

I looked up at the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAdrbdp9hzDb
others and they looked like they were all about to gang up on G-Dragon 52Please respect copyright.PENANABB9hpFPMOM
when all they wanted was an explanation from him. All of this was 52Please respect copyright.PENANAuq1NwSLmly
frightening.copyright protection48PENANAj6K3pZFBxu52Please respect copyright.PENANA2y0dMqn4Z1

I knew he was going to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAgBDpS25IPU
tell them a lie. I wouldn't blame him. Besides, this only had to do with52Please respect copyright.PENANAukkw8RpTeK
me and him. No one else. If he had to tell them, something told me they52Please respect copyright.PENANAsgjtu6TRaT
wouldn't even believe him.copyright protection48PENANALd94Qij5Aj52Please respect copyright.PENANASruvQnyW5o

I looked at Lee who 52Please respect copyright.PENANAQAIb7Q2wKh
stood behind the others. She had been looking at me the whole time 52Please respect copyright.PENANAhdyAG2HAUS
trying to get my attention. She had a warning look in her eye, telling 52Please respect copyright.PENANAtNjXjalR6q
me to do something.copyright protection48PENANAPQNXzaDyit52Please respect copyright.PENANAgW1Y88PaFA

But what was I supposed 52Please respect copyright.PENANAsWN0xt3e4X
to do? All this was just getting more complicated and I feared I might 52Please respect copyright.PENANA6xKpv3zQVG
just make it as worse as it already was.copyright protection48PENANALBAwE0vkC352Please respect copyright.PENANAhbCjaKr0V6

"If you want to know, then fine," said G-Dragon.copyright protection48PENANAOngYs7gLdQ52Please respect copyright.PENANAAo3ooASrPW

I looked up at him. Oh 52Please respect copyright.PENANApVt9lZdVQ9
no. Was he really going to tell them the truth? Right now, I couldn't 52Please respect copyright.PENANAB8lervZSwV
even tell for sure. I wanted to know the truth for myself and not 52Please respect copyright.PENANAZ6j3uIEmat
involve anyone else.copyright protection48PENANA52HTZh3DPl52Please respect copyright.PENANAjzpNJKMXGD

What if in the attempt 52Please respect copyright.PENANA6iLrxcXw5t
to tell truth he ends up hurting Zoey? I still wasn't sure why he was 52Please respect copyright.PENANAs4AM85uMrF
giving me the attitude, but if all this was going to hurt everyone in 52Please respect copyright.PENANAfLfEyZplW5
the end, I better do something. And now.copyright protection48PENANA7AXI6CICWk52Please respect copyright.PENANAY3oJuVWrr1

"All of this was nothing but a misunderstanding."copyright protection48PENANAGLIWJa30Wg52Please respect copyright.PENANAVU6vGeAb02

Everyone turned to me now. I stood up from her couch. Thank goodness I wasn't feeling dizzy anymore.copyright protection48PENANAR1iyUiPXWE52Please respect copyright.PENANAQgN5Um5kH1

"What?" Christine asked.copyright protection48PENANAj3fgLmTuYQ52Please respect copyright.PENANAqF4OpzJl1b

"All of this was nothing52Please respect copyright.PENANAmW5tsMH3XI
but a misunderstanding," I repeated. "We talked about it in the hall 52Please respect copyright.PENANA5OYTUTgZdX
when he came and you don't need to worry anymore."copyright protection48PENANAOEBwBkHFlD52Please respect copyright.PENANA0ED5s2EcoF

Everyone looked at me now and I could tell they were as confused as ever. I had to sound more convincing. 52Please respect copyright.PENANAoLCue4gV7e
I52Please respect copyright.PENANADd2C7WvnVJ
put up a smile and said, "you guys were taking this all too seriously 52Please respect copyright.PENANAkWnY1Q1F2p
for no good reason at all. Lee made everything sound really serious when52Please respect copyright.PENANAlraXVp1bk9
she told you yesterday."copyright protection48PENANAVcEeKyxzwt52Please respect copyright.PENANAqYmsAuo6Rj

"Wait, so what was the argument all about?" Mike asked, looking confused.copyright protection48PENANAePxt6jP0NO52Please respect copyright.PENANAPcfdah3bW6

"Well, G-Dragon and I 52Please respect copyright.PENANABixMfsbhEw
had gone somewhere on Sunday, to get smoothies." I looked at G-Dragon 52Please respect copyright.PENANAr4uOw5iVc9
and he at me. "We were joking around until I joked about something 52Please respect copyright.PENANAe2mufwMiII
personal. He was upset and though he was acting like he didn't mind, he 52Please respect copyright.PENANApj1W5gogy3
was still giving me an attitude. I told Lee about it and that's why she 52Please respect copyright.PENANAMZ8hNEn6zA
said all that yesterday."copyright protection48PENANAQCtr95MQK752Please respect copyright.PENANAgOCCjS85bR

Lee wiped her brow and 52Please respect copyright.PENANAOAaPwg6VwF
looked relieved. I started to feel that way myself. I could feel the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAYjE6BsLZzl
tension from G-Dragon slowly start to disappear. I turned to look at 52Please respect copyright.PENANAAPacru5AAg
him.copyright protection48PENANAuGj9V4HsDe52Please respect copyright.PENANAroQBenRlio

"I'm still really sorry, GD," I said. "I shouldn't have said all that."copyright protection48PENANAWS4ulaNbaB52Please respect copyright.PENANA0hIFok8akH

I shouldn't have done what I did for you to hate me. That's52Please respect copyright.PENANAvUwG7XacxK
what was in my heart the whole time. I wanted to say it out loud so 52Please respect copyright.PENANAsZ9jAoHsJZ
that he should know. But that's just going to raise everyone's 52Please respect copyright.PENANARKhzpFUxPe
suspicion.copyright protection48PENANA00eusozefj52Please respect copyright.PENANAfl8L1fJcsh

G-Dragon continued to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAXVg7eRvVjf
look at me, and in his eyes, he knew exactly what I meant. I was hoping 52Please respect copyright.PENANAVbZcLoSFWI
he would forgive me but I was wasn't raising that thought too high.copyright protection48PENANAmJ0GSVKAon52Please respect copyright.PENANATb32X5hGhJ

He nodded his head and 52Please respect copyright.PENANAXeEelT5RPp
didn't say a word. That meant he still hadn't forgiven me for something I52Please respect copyright.PENANA6LA5XluQ0q
didn't know I had done. Well, I might have an idea why but I had to be 52Please respect copyright.PENANAyUCBWAGegY
sure from him.copyright protection48PENANAOlgTPB3DNe52Please respect copyright.PENANAYedCsywyqm

"Oh, thank goodness," said Christine and Seungri at the same time.copyright protection48PENANAfOftiISSW752Please respect copyright.PENANAXw7xB4T6VU

"I thought it was something so serious," said Daniel. "I was expecting a juicy story. Thanks for nothing."copyright protection48PENANAcjQcZJ8Jjw52Please respect copyright.PENANAxtO94LKLZ0

I bet the juicy story might be about G-Dragon liking me. My brothers were such a menacé sometimes.copyright protection48PENANA78Rn1HZ5kN52Please respect copyright.PENANAJYfXBIw7gW

"Don't blame me for this," I said as I raised my hands in surrender.copyright protection48PENANAkzBz3UhVMe52Please respect copyright.PENANAtdsAL4FEaA

"It's my fault," said Lee. "Sorry guys."copyright protection48PENANA2ZyTbxDkgW52Please respect copyright.PENANAyH4nR99BU9

"We would've been doing other things by now if it wasn't for this," said Taeyang.copyright protection48PENANAQo5IL7pKcK52Please respect copyright.PENANACE7SBIA7QQ

"And by other things, you mean, Hyo-rin," I said with a smirk and Taeyang confirmed it with a smile.copyright protection48PENANAxwk96o3ojQ52Please respect copyright.PENANA4j3wUPBAtL

"Well, now that the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAb2tfqloAXj
drama is over," said Zoey, as she hooked her arm around G-Dragon's 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJzYRrAz2Ip
elbow. "Why don't we do something fun? The day is almost over, you 52Please respect copyright.PENANASMJWjELUef
know?"copyright protection48PENANADmPbg1JTl052Please respect copyright.PENANAGpiaFJv3js

"I agree," said Daesung.copyright protection48PENANAQcoVU93kUf52Please respect copyright.PENANAn32lUuWuwE

Everyone else seemed to agree to go out and have fun. Lee and I hadn't say a word.copyright protection48PENANA4sMpBTNFi752Please respect copyright.PENANATprDlKh7Ev

"Aren't you coming along, sis?" Mike asked.copyright protection48PENANAvVuk7KlQEH52Please respect copyright.PENANAnlVFvAo1EI

"Arrh..." I thought for a while. Should I go? "No, you guys go ahead and have fun."copyright protection48PENANARuTfqOpt8k52Please respect copyright.PENANAt1LwnF0k9x

"No! Sam, stop being a party pooper for once in your life," said Zoey as she stomped her foot on the ground.copyright protection48PENANAJdMwCopq3H52Please respect copyright.PENANAY3WpGiaYqP

"Guys, I need to rest. I52Please respect copyright.PENANAuNaptF0SHE
must have felt dizzy because I still didn't get enough sleep after 52Please respect copyright.PENANAAbGlH41Iob
finishing up the lyrics. And you guys came with all those presents the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAfnfcMWuXUU
other day that made me restless. The interview made me all the more 52Please respect copyright.PENANAMoIWObCP3j
tired."copyright protection48PENANAxyD1TKMfBq52Please respect copyright.PENANAuEua0cf1UD

"Ya, true," said TOP. "I can see the bags under your eyes." copyright protection48PENANAWsVPHmE7PM52Please respect copyright.PENANAd90smNoQKi

I knew he was just joking around and I smiled. I tried not to take notice of G-Dragon's sharp gaze at me.copyright protection48PENANArz0d5DBv3E52Please respect copyright.PENANALwHutwF6lJ

"Fine, we will see you later back at the hotel to come check on you," said Daesung.copyright protection48PENANAcBdPD6Aqlb52Please respect copyright.PENANApPoU0o6fq0

"Okay, then let's go have some fun then," said Seungri.copyright protection48PENANARhDM7l8LsY52Please respect copyright.PENANATDaT5wHtns

One by one, the others 52Please respect copyright.PENANAM9ZuDs0jym
started to leave the room. Seungri with my brothers and Christine went 52Please respect copyright.PENANA3YcrScPZsf
out first. Taeyang and TOP also left soon after. That left the two love 52Please respect copyright.PENANAZlTafYHWs4
birds with Lee and I.copyright protection48PENANAyTxz7DcJ8g52Please respect copyright.PENANApfeoJRRKbp

"Make sure you get enough rest, okay?" Zoey said as though she was giving me instructions. "We still need you for tomorrow."copyright protection48PENANAolSBawHLW352Please respect copyright.PENANA6eoiGhvvgX

"Of course I will," I said. "You guys go have as much fun as possible."copyright protection48PENANAWNkAAsVJeo52Please respect copyright.PENANALgjEqyD7v6

"We certainly will," said G-Dragon as he smiled at Zoey.copyright protection48PENANAIMigmqTy9152Please respect copyright.PENANAcVlqj4iaPt

"Come on," said Zoey tugging G-Dragon along with her.copyright protection48PENANAPxnI9xeRjb52Please respect copyright.PENANAAVHYeogKTw

When they had left and 52Please respect copyright.PENANAIFM1kdAYk6
closed the door behind them, I waited for thirty seconds to pass until I52Please respect copyright.PENANA4x1pXlufvj
dropped myself backwards onto the couch as I closed my eyes. I sighed 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJ6fr5uPleJ
in relief as I slumped myself on the couch.copyright protection48PENANAUgZeQzHMjV52Please respect copyright.PENANARWoEYJRyHc

"Phew! That was close," 52Please respect copyright.PENANAFLJHaH2FXy
said Lee as she rushed to the window. She was obviously trying to see 52Please respect copyright.PENANAYGEe7JIW5X
the others down at the parking lot.copyright protection48PENANAb1Ith4TaD352Please respect copyright.PENANAFXT4BRNtqu

"I've never lied like that in my entire life," I said as I looked at Lee. "And not like that in one day."copyright protection48PENANActBzbK7pBq52Please respect copyright.PENANAF6fpNq6P53

"But it's a good thing you did," said Lee, still looking out the window. "Okay, they are leaving."copyright protection48PENANABvGAKx9rjt52Please respect copyright.PENANAn4J2jRM1NR

"All this lying has got me hungry," I said.copyright protection48PENANAnuu5YL9RWN52Please respect copyright.PENANAYsOSxpKkTb

"Why don't we go back to the hotel and order something nice for ourselves."copyright protection48PENANAV9gwIrgQRS52Please respect copyright.PENANAOyh3X5u4Vz

"Sounds like a good idea. We should watch some k-drama too."copyright protection48PENANAhsoX28vcAP52Please respect copyright.PENANA7jERlXI7Zv

"That's exactly what I thought. Let's go."copyright protection48PENANAFXj93iVdaR52Please respect copyright.PENANAZYYNQvdBQ6

"Yes, please."copyright protection48PENANA050gBJHSzz52Please respect copyright.PENANANEF5IDacH5

I quickly got up from 52Please respect copyright.PENANAMOpqGKnoSm
the couch and I left with Lee. I couldn't have felt more relieved to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAUSkTGbpTNf
have left the studio. I was feeling too awkward not after what happened.copyright protection48PENANAKQ19O3ikgS52Please respect copyright.PENANA0ATGFBjPO0

When we got to the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAVAPk0w5oUY
hotel, the first thing I did was kick off my shoes and I went in the 52Please respect copyright.PENANAKPQ5Iwg7q3
lounge with Lee. She was already checking for k-drama series on the TV 52Please respect copyright.PENANAmrDg7jRr8F
and I sat on the couch.copyright protection48PENANA9VQt5UL07V52Please respect copyright.PENANAs4giogOuEJ

"What happened to you when you were dizzy in the hallway?" Lee asked.copyright protection48PENANAS70ToCD6uc52Please respect copyright.PENANAspyjugQLog

"I was having my usual conversation with GD and it didn't end well," I replied.copyright protection48PENANAFf3GpSKHd152Please respect copyright.PENANAPKIt0QMShU

Lee turned away from the TV and looked at me. "Give me details."copyright protection48PENANAAmWrP1lA2t52Please respect copyright.PENANAyKZO2n5RSJ

I shrugged as I read her eyes. "Something tells me you already know what happened."copyright protection48PENANAwVBxOZ9r5E52Please respect copyright.PENANAAl98EDpupN

"Well, hearing you say it was going to be music to my ears," said Lee with a grin.copyright protection48PENANAEKUIrjBc0O52Please respect copyright.PENANALeytHzkurB

"Pfft, ya right."copyright protection48PENANAdBaa20boBe52Please respect copyright.PENANApZmoOpMTgE

"Why didn't you let him kiss you, huh?" Lee asked as she sat down beside me.copyright protection48PENANAR79sEYsOpx52Please respect copyright.PENANADQZNZEqp8Q

"I just couldn't let him, Lee," I said as I thought of what happened. "It wasn't going to feel right."copyright protection48PENANAs4inMKGoWH52Please respect copyright.PENANAdU5LnNkIhM

"Did you fake the illness then?"copyright protection48PENANAcaimklnwJY52Please respect copyright.PENANAkGMG4A5Qul

"No, at least that was one thing I couldn't lie about today."copyright protection48PENANAKB5U4KSwyi52Please respect copyright.PENANAv8cuVc9mCh

"Then what happened?"copyright protection48PENANA31nmo964y352Please respect copyright.PENANAcPbiBz5Whm

"Guilt. That's what happened."copyright protection48PENANAMKd57xqu3a52Please respect copyright.PENANAJB2vi76nYB

Lee looked confused for a moment but she quickly understood.copyright protection48PENANAsOLyIPiBlQ52Please respect copyright.PENANAJtJWYF971L

"Looks like your body also has a conscious," said Lee. "How righteous of you."copyright protection48PENANATpRgLfqSkY52Please respect copyright.PENANApeBBwcaC9s

"Don't make fun of me, Lee. I just couldn't hurt Zoey. Not in this way."copyright protection48PENANAV6J8bQGClJ52Please respect copyright.PENANAYS41nn8uK6

"But didn't you want to kiss him?"copyright protection48PENANAMNxxlgnERI52Please respect copyright.PENANA5uzPqyuzFw

"Well, I did. But I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAl4KWFh8QTi
don't know what happened. I was so caught up in the moment I had no 52Please respect copyright.PENANAjSaoTxL12w
control of my own body. Then guilt came in the worst possible way and 52Please respect copyright.PENANA870IWqgq0W
prevented me from doing something I could regret doing afterwards."copyright protection48PENANAuL8m2TBsMW52Please respect copyright.PENANAWl1HhGZqxT

"Well, it came at the right time. I'm just glad no one saw that."copyright protection48PENANArH2bQe2wQn52Please respect copyright.PENANAIRLSfFq0Gs

"We would be having an entirely different conversation right now."copyright protection48PENANAgCbOax5xbW52Please respect copyright.PENANAxPAxxwYNXZ

"True, let me go and take my shoes off."copyright protection48PENANAgGIo2KiEd452Please respect copyright.PENANAKUkLCCrB3Z

"I will let room service bring us some snacks while we enjoy our series," I stood up and went for the land line.copyright protection48PENANAAFLDQCRS9H52Please respect copyright.PENANAvLQhE6W57C

"You do that."copyright protection48PENANAgpkreuYj1a52Please respect copyright.PENANAyEs8bZFaND

As Lee left for her 52Please respect copyright.PENANA9xxui96KLa
room, my phone beeped just as I was about to pick up the land line. I 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJhVAyAGuFN
fetched for my phone in the pocket. I had a message from G-Dragon.copyright protection48PENANAfiQYGSIYwV52Please respect copyright.PENANA7drzmDy1Ol

"I've to hand it to 52Please respect copyright.PENANAFYTcsbmzV8
you, not only did you save my neck, you also prevented World War Three 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJEpFfXfVsU
from breaking loose. I never knew you would be a liar. And a good one. 52Please respect copyright.PENANAJz8b9vPIxD
You're right, you and I need to talk without involving anyone else."
copyright protection48PENANA26BOJrrBkA52Please respect copyright.PENANA3cBWo48LD3

I frowned. He didn't even say thank you. So much for saving him. I decided not to reply. I had no words.copyright protection48PENANAiAZD1e80xa52Please respect copyright.PENANATnIi2XghTI

I did agree that he was right about one thing. I was a liar. A big fat one.copyright protection48PENANAaMs0L8Tt6p
