Have you ever been awake48Please respect copyright.PENANApgV4DZDeZx
for so long in your bed with no thought or sign of sleep and your heart48Please respect copyright.PENANASN1YIv4GAN
isn't at peace because you're afraid of what's going to happen as the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAI2zS1cs5K9
day goes on?copyright protection44PENANAWDoppS0BEB48Please respect copyright.PENANAs9pne3mRhm

That's how I felt right at this moment.copyright protection44PENANABQRTVVDQV948Please respect copyright.PENANAp99r7RXcyx

I tossed in my bed, 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0hAzaCLCHw
turning to the side and looking towards the curtain. There was still no 48Please respect copyright.PENANAL9FbxUeTMv
sign of the sun coming up and I was getting frustrated. I wished the sun48Please respect copyright.PENANAgbFpDNgAZP
could come up so that I could meet my end already.copyright protection44PENANAFWalqIRDV248Please respect copyright.PENANA7Z6IzhklT1

I quickly sat up and went for my phone on the drawer close to my bed. I checked the time. It was only 4 AM.copyright protection44PENANAGRG4h5WiHB48Please respect copyright.PENANARFbxQIr5Cd

I fell back on my bed, 48Please respect copyright.PENANABSpgh23yD2
the back of my head hitting the pillows real hard. I clenched my teeth 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoL2vtCMNXF
in irritation. Sunrise felt like forever and I was already tired of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPPl1nbKOhm
sleeping. This had been the third time that I had to wake up and only 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2Sfs8xvb68
realise that I had only slept for a few minutes. I wish I could sleep 48Please respect copyright.PENANAevTh0mUMaS
till sunrise, but waking up three times meant I was too bothered in my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAsZHN14ZLTg
mind even to dream.copyright protection44PENANATisKbnGPeB48Please respect copyright.PENANA8W8nohVTt2

I turned to my other 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1IxVZxhUkr
side where my stuffed panda lay beside me and I cuddled it in my arms. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMNrtBsyBes
How I wish I could fall asleep. I admired Zoey whom I could hear snoring48Please respect copyright.PENANASmo1JMiFGL
slightly in her sleep. I stared up at the dark ceiling trying to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHIteDtMVn7
picture things in my mind but I couldn't. Even my imagination wasn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAn9UODvhc7v
working.copyright protection44PENANAYUy8fZR7CN48Please respect copyright.PENANAEZS20BPihw

I sighed as I looked at the panda. I couldn't stop thinking of what I was going to do today, especially with G-Dragon and Zoey.copyright protection44PENANA9jEPnWVkeC48Please respect copyright.PENANA4YfydS20Op

I knew I now had to face48Please respect copyright.PENANA7bz10dxiqF
the music. And even though we had quite a hectic day yesterday, Zoey 48Please respect copyright.PENANAN4EF7EhXXz
hadn't given up on me about what happened with G-Dragon and I. And even 48Please respect copyright.PENANAu2yJALCDLq
though she was tired when we got back, she still hadn't stopped 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2TBCUBQsTg
bothering me until she finally gave up and went straight to bed.copyright protection44PENANAW7VoS7MyX048Please respect copyright.PENANA7HlMnsrFqp

I knew her persistance 48Please respect copyright.PENANAeUrMD2yfFk
was far from over and I had to prepare myself for more of it today. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGIdhl8TcBN
know Zoey must be very worried about me, but I was more worried about 48Please respect copyright.PENANAsJuNvSgXxG
her if I had to tell her the truth.copyright protection44PENANAaVUI4aIWhl48Please respect copyright.PENANAmMBOyfQ7vw

I know sometimes we 48Please respect copyright.PENANArbfEsAMmMn
people lie to prevent the others we love and care about from getting 48Please respect copyright.PENANA9f7D3Cwjz3
hurt. But there will come a point in time when you can't keep it to 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0VPBKoQAwl
yourself any longer because the guilt will eat you up inside. Sadly, I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7XxmCZXplK
had now reached that point.copyright protection44PENANAJrEoh2kcmz48Please respect copyright.PENANAMvZT82wEm6

I sighed again as I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIm2yYMXPnt
turned again to the other side, taking the panda in my arms with me. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAburIR3IOs3
What wrong did I ever do to be in the position I was in right now?copyright protection44PENANAPjHLHzTu7Q48Please respect copyright.PENANAzfyz9HCFmY

If it came to G-Dragon, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAM5lOEjAB9X
he was going to be one person who will be difficult to talk to. I know I48Please respect copyright.PENANA5krw2iAK72
betrayed his trust, and trying to convince him was going to be a whole 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOGingr5S7s
lot harder.copyright protection44PENANAuhLp0QzJMR48Please respect copyright.PENANAQTycHcwiOF

How was I going to tell 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfT0Hq201N7
him that yes, Daesung and I did kiss, but all of that happened due to a 48Please respect copyright.PENANA3COl04N5WU
completely different story? I know how bad he must be feeling and if I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAyNO60viwN7
was in his shoes, I probably wouldn't believe anything I would say 48Please respect copyright.PENANAc30cKrfKs3
either.copyright protection44PENANA4viITzKeM748Please respect copyright.PENANASwFGSGLGMI

I kicked out the bed 48Please respect copyright.PENANAAkwpqwUJ3I
covers and got up from the bed. And taking Mr Panda with me and my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQgLRswjIgM
phone, I slipped my feet into my bed slippers and walked out of the room48Please respect copyright.PENANAM9irPb8BRU
in my purple pyjamas.copyright protection44PENANANCqun84hCb48Please respect copyright.PENANAjseQRFmMoq

I went straight for the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAufGg79NqS4
dark, empty lounge and I turned on the lights. I went to sit on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcEdv63GeEy
comfortable couch and with my feet up and folded with Mr Panda in my 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8Y0nOS2bEr
arms, I unlocked my phone and went straight to my contacts and called my48Please respect copyright.PENANAB9HiqOrdej
mum.copyright protection44PENANA77tTwuJ6dv48Please respect copyright.PENANAhrYvW4yDic

Hopefully, I was calling48Please respect copyright.PENANAcqbdNZ5QbJ
her at the right time. I wasn't really sure what time it would be back 48Please respect copyright.PENANAhNTY5jMxx1
home in the US. I was too bothered to even try and figure out all this 48Please respect copyright.PENANAROsPjpTS3b
time zones nonsense. I just had to talk to someone. And why not my mum?copyright protection44PENANAXh1g0UQL9C48Please respect copyright.PENANA4gCgtqfygr

I put the phone to my ear hoping she would pick up. I just hope she wasn't busy at work or something.copyright protection44PENANATWfkrDsvU548Please respect copyright.PENANAiyebxjvjR2

She finally picked up the phone on the fourth ring.copyright protection44PENANAH1dbUKFEQS48Please respect copyright.PENANAlIROxaer3i

"Hello, Sam?"copyright protection44PENANA9Oab4a6UWf48Please respect copyright.PENANAD7ygo1GDAX

"Hi, mum."copyright protection44PENANAxPcM9DpC9k48Please respect copyright.PENANA5Swj43Cznt

"Sam, how are you, dear?"copyright protection44PENANAHRlV2gFIUv48Please respect copyright.PENANABIcsxKDLbG

"I'm good. How are you? Are you at work?"copyright protection44PENANAA4jLfoWliS48Please respect copyright.PENANA3POB5cDMQd

"Yes, I am, sweetie. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAKV5gf9jSJH
am just looking at photos online on the computer. A friend of mine just 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmlpyNXirIu
told me you guys went out bowling with Big Bang."copyright protection44PENANAAPHMCQq2sA48Please respect copyright.PENANA8MjXopa1b1

"Ah.." I scratched my head. "We did, mum. And we had fun."copyright protection44PENANAmarI5uYLcT48Please respect copyright.PENANAfVXkccuv4e

"Ya, I can see you guys 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdqzDYnAhOi
smiling and laughing on the photos." I could hear clicking in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMX55Utv4vG
background and that confirmed that she was tapping away on the mouse of 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6KC35OfAkk
her computer as she looked at the pictures.copyright protection44PENANAgNXAydYuzh48Please respect copyright.PENANAOxKnaJKK1z

"So, was it more like a competition?" she asked. "It's says here that you guys won."copyright protection44PENANAm974WJUnLn48Please respect copyright.PENANA3Nw8TrCow8

"It was mum. We won," I said with a smile. "You should have seen what happened. It was awesome."copyright protection44PENANAY8xpQDUPo648Please respect copyright.PENANA4CSHFYvVyP

"I'll check out the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfnm0KxJvhK
videos later on and see everything for myself, dear," I could hear my 48Please respect copyright.PENANA5lyCur36Qz
mum clicking quickly on the mouse. "Now tell me. What's bothering you? 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfUc8BS67NE
Why aren't you asleep?"copyright protection44PENANAIFUGfsTeXs48Please respect copyright.PENANAW31j3MQNi8

I raised an eyebrow. "You know what time it is here?"copyright protection44PENANAvkCCozmiX848Please respect copyright.PENANAynt6ZXy34o

"I'm your mother, Sam. Of course I know what time it is."copyright protection44PENANAFVgdl6QfWf48Please respect copyright.PENANADjjPrVIy2w

I could imagine my mum 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdYzfiD18qk
with a stern look on her face as she said that. If we weren't talking on48Please respect copyright.PENANAhZIK5IIDLN
the phone and I was standing in front of her, she probably would have 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2p6lfygX7i
her arms folded.copyright protection44PENANAmFUglaJfoH48Please respect copyright.PENANAtkh3zzGBI7

"I know it's way too early in the morning for you to be awake right now," she continued. "What's up?"copyright protection44PENANAIU1lxpUUIR48Please respect copyright.PENANAV06ELcmtQ8

"I feel my whole life has been nothing but a lie, mum," I said as I tugged at Mr Panda's ears.copyright protection44PENANA2oNiB8psol48Please respect copyright.PENANAgSxndMWuK3

"Your name is Samantha Glasson and you're a famous pop star. That my child, is not a lie."copyright protection44PENANAHK0C1mMLBb48Please respect copyright.PENANANdn4gXEXyn

"Mum, you know what I mean when I say that."copyright protection44PENANAsj5uFDTzxC48Please respect copyright.PENANA4tob79nuCd

She sighed. "What did you lie about this time?"copyright protection44PENANArz0eRCnh5L48Please respect copyright.PENANACT69hkWdOG

"I've lied way too much in my life, but this time, I think I'm in a really big mess that I can't seem to get out of."copyright protection44PENANACNvDpxZbjA48Please respect copyright.PENANAhBUEGbBl8a

"Tell me. I've all the time to listen."copyright protection44PENANAmLUsfz699D48Please respect copyright.PENANAIdE6oMgMgS

"I've been lying to Zoey48Please respect copyright.PENANA0SM623qYge
and everyone else about G-Dragon and I, and I don't now how to tell 48Please respect copyright.PENANAFxQzcxKOST
them. Especially Zoey since she likes G-Dragon so much. It would crush 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYB6CIvoYhF
her if she finds out G-Dragon likes me and not her."copyright protection44PENANAMBdMQ5pdmv48Please respect copyright.PENANAQhxDnAGOzX

"I thought you girls weren't supposed to date any one of those guys."copyright protection44PENANAYZiuCH2BTl48Please respect copyright.PENANA3evTOIqywj

My eyebrows shot up in surprise. "Wow. Collins really does tell you everything, does he?"copyright protection44PENANAcg76ImGOwQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAsvUy8C3xAl

"Whatever he tells you, we as parents have to know too. I hope Zoey's mum isn't going to freak when she finds out."copyright protection44PENANAsirF5iKvv748Please respect copyright.PENANAcrCK40kLOU

"Trust me, mum, Collins 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIR8dLXVbvs
has no clue with what's going on in our private circle and I suggest 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvYYpw61AEC
that you shouldn't say a word either."copyright protection44PENANA0u6iZI02kT48Please respect copyright.PENANAVQ4yB8yWUm

"Is that a threat?" I imagined my mum's eyebrow raised.copyright protection44PENANAnw9uDSRkHo48Please respect copyright.PENANAQCdZQZWMas

"You know I can never 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfGqd5Xk7xY
threaten you, mum. It's just for now until we come back home. It's a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJtPN1rWznQ
matter of life and death. I've no choice."copyright protection44PENANAaaHCPNUAiq48Please respect copyright.PENANAWetadk9a6k

"I know. But why does Zoey like him?"copyright protection44PENANAIjVOCVxCXR48Please respect copyright.PENANACl03z50Ucy

"Knowing Zoey, you must know by now the kind of guy she would fall for, mum."copyright protection44PENANAwknGP0yHkg48Please respect copyright.PENANASW1IK29HCx

"True. But how come she likes him but he likes you? Don't tell me you also like him too."copyright protection44PENANA5vqM8gz3RS48Please respect copyright.PENANAyyM1IZlRas

"Well....." I hesitated, trying to figure out what to say next.copyright protection44PENANAtzcpnOkUqh48Please respect copyright.PENANAcNOcQnhRhu

"Samantha Glasson," my mum's voice sounded stern now. "Tell me the truth."copyright protection44PENANAMWC9Drab8u48Please respect copyright.PENANAparqTbt3S6

I sighed. "I also like him, mum."copyright protection44PENANAse0T189Bb148Please respect copyright.PENANAAqEmsnmOfx

There was silence at the other end. Until....copyright protection44PENANAtFAF4YupTU48Please respect copyright.PENANAgrk4DasV2K

"WHAT!"copyright protection44PENANAHFRjOuLYGU48Please respect copyright.PENANAqrVRSO2mRV

"Mum, calm down. It's not what you think."copyright protection44PENANAt98u2aCbLO48Please respect copyright.PENANAssm6POucCJ

"Then what is it? The 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJSb3XOepKg
way I'm seeing it, you also like him and you feel guilty because you 48Please respect copyright.PENANA9aI51AT4XL
feel like you're betraying your best friend."copyright protection44PENANAcfuNVyLpYF48Please respect copyright.PENANA0pemw4a0gM

"It was like that at 48Please respect copyright.PENANAK0FV4CJj2u
first. I really do like G-Dragon but I'm learning to like him as a close48Please respect copyright.PENANAAcEihGTbLQ
friend because I know how Zoey likes him and because of Collins' 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWLfb7LfhMw
'golden rule'." I put "golden rule" in quotation marks with my remaining48Please respect copyright.PENANA4wwJrBmbUo
fingers.copyright protection44PENANAkFkbY9GK8n48Please respect copyright.PENANAFuBjMS0G3L

"What do you mean it was like that at first?"copyright protection44PENANAECwN6yXJKJ48Please respect copyright.PENANAw0wMbEyqVk

"I like G-Dragon, but he isn't the only one."copyright protection44PENANAyXY2KTBwjz48Please respect copyright.PENANAW0QtKi46tY

"Don't tell me you like someone else from the same group too."copyright protection44PENANAcDfwOeGvYO48Please respect copyright.PENANAv8t6sfZtV2

I closed my eyes as I winced. "Yes, mum."copyright protection44PENANASDrpqyYohI48Please respect copyright.PENANAes2LeepMEl

She didn't say a word. I wondered what she was thinking right now.copyright protection44PENANA7PG5SrZtYi48Please respect copyright.PENANA7BmY56gadJ

"You're really in one big mess, dear."copyright protection44PENANA3aViGKwngu48Please respect copyright.PENANA8JSCPkROON

"And that's not the worst part."copyright protection44PENANAc97DyybwXt48Please respect copyright.PENANAR2gUOu8ehN

I told her what happened48Please respect copyright.PENANAzopWmu2DFg
the day Zoey went missing, making sure I didn't mention the stranger in48Please respect copyright.PENANAmOZfqPAhDo
the suit. I talked about what G-Dragon and I had talked about in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA5vqlpfQxt7
park and what we agreed upon. Then I told her what happened with Daesung48Please respect copyright.PENANAl2wKYTf1wU
and the kiss.copyright protection44PENANAf4jVabn9Fl48Please respect copyright.PENANAhSIh886IqK

"You kissed?" my mum sounded surprised.copyright protection44PENANAsIvn0c8wzo48Please respect copyright.PENANA6vfxRFMHdf

"Ssh, and listen."copyright protection44PENANA1Ly9p6HADE48Please respect copyright.PENANAPyiljhfyjL

I told her that G-Dragon and Zoey saw us but they didn't witness the kiss. And I told her what happened afterwards.copyright protection44PENANA4TJnPTzc3e48Please respect copyright.PENANAtAEbRMkXuK

"You're in a real mess, Sam. You now have two people to tell the truth to."copyright protection44PENANAxvW2TWf1tO48Please respect copyright.PENANAIAgX88CUPP

"If it's not Zoey and G-Dragon, then it's the entire group."copyright protection44PENANAquAYDZ5lAI48Please respect copyright.PENANA9Fos1HJgg2

"I know. But you can't lie forever now, can you?"copyright protection44PENANA0EBJ2qCCDF48Please respect copyright.PENANA1JDGUvsftW

I thought of what she said. "You're right. We all deserve to know the truth someday."copyright protection44PENANAQaaNd4Js5d48Please respect copyright.PENANAZbxg9FoLAe

"Are you scared?"copyright protection44PENANAhwHRulRzGr48Please respect copyright.PENANABKT0cVHWbX

"I am. Maybe that's why I can't fall asleep." I hugged Mr Panda close to me.copyright protection44PENANAiG6Up9k2LY48Please respect copyright.PENANAYdHCTB7lQA

"It's okay to be scared, sweetie. And it's good that you decided to come out clean."copyright protection44PENANAIB8TomX8P248Please respect copyright.PENANAiQLQ7VwvG6

"I don't want people getting hurt because of me." I could now feel tears coming up in my eyes.copyright protection44PENANAl6z3Y3oPD548Please respect copyright.PENANAKiQEj3z0ZL

"We all get hurt at some48Please respect copyright.PENANAYYYFARhHd8
point in our lives, sweetie. That's why there is a time for everything.48Please respect copyright.PENANAiwZ4n6ZTCG
Just wait and see. After the storm, everything will be back to the way 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0mYR1iUAiT
it was and everyone will forget about it. Besides, no one can stay mad 48Please respect copyright.PENANAlhRkXrbf9p
at you forever, Sam. Not even me."copyright protection44PENANAhWMnQcwbei48Please respect copyright.PENANAnsWmwjtvc5

I smiled as a tear ran down my cheek and I quickly wiped it away.copyright protection44PENANA9XTiQiENru48Please respect copyright.PENANAbcsa3tsY3L

"Thanks, mum." I sniffed.copyright protection44PENANAQNApQzsfo648Please respect copyright.PENANARp3JJ0bVfl

"Don't cry, okay? You're48Please respect copyright.PENANAlDNh0jAtPN
a brave girl. Now, do me a favour and get a few minutes of sleep. You 48Please respect copyright.PENANAy1Z1c3uF2y
will need all the rest you can get."copyright protection44PENANAkF273SjA3y48Please respect copyright.PENANAqUXuDHvPCL

"Yes, mum. I will."copyright protection44PENANAScvMvl598w48Please respect copyright.PENANAaXoXfohPR6

"Bye, Sam. Tell me what happens, okay?"copyright protection44PENANADYjenaNQpc48Please respect copyright.PENANACq7CrkGWZI

"Okay. Bye."copyright protection44PENANAWKSZRVRawV48Please respect copyright.PENANAuqCrUg9p5L

I hang up and I quickly 48Please respect copyright.PENANAagJzeYYvNP
got up from the couch with Mr Panda and went back in the room, straight 48Please respect copyright.PENANACqgK3I4JF3
into the bed covers. I fell asleep in an instant with Mr Panda in my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAs9t5BolKOr
arms.copyright protection44PENANAIp8dbDzhNH48Please respect copyright.PENANAwZHfyWewr2

It must have been some 48Please respect copyright.PENANAm3sDOvmSf1
time around 7:40 when I finally woke up. The sun rays shone brightly 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWHbqMMO8xD
into the room that I had to shield my eyes with my hand from the light.copyright protection44PENANANrG7F3htUH48Please respect copyright.PENANAz3ChjadxHF

"Wakey! Wakey!" Zoey came over and sat next to me.copyright protection44PENANAFRryQjuIt048Please respect copyright.PENANAz4J2Hxx4pN

"Mmmm." I murmered as I turned around and covered my head with a blanket. "Leave me alone."copyright protection44PENANAEcpMqBqZSd48Please respect copyright.PENANA5mugMh3BpA

"You've to get up, Sam. We have a big day ahead of us."copyright protection44PENANAHGEnOkr5Nm48Please respect copyright.PENANAeZDQgX1uuJ

"Isn't it a Sunday today?" I asked as I removed the blanket from my head.copyright protection44PENANAMtde14xvN148Please respect copyright.PENANA94NS6vqEzP

"Sadly, it isn't, my 48Please respect copyright.PENANArFcWVYdZzD
dear kitty," said Zoey as she placed her hand on my head. "Looks like 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzNCdDSaFnF
you weren't the only one praying for it to be a Sunday."copyright protection44PENANAwreVeExFEq48Please respect copyright.PENANAowJbpPHPtg

"Okay." I muttered as I sat up on my bed and rubbed away the sleep in my eyes.copyright protection44PENANASm7xKVSc0F48Please respect copyright.PENANAFVVRRRP5Rp

"You know you have a lot of explaining to do, right?"copyright protection44PENANAyN9M1aRzGE48Please respect copyright.PENANAIqckEQdPvA

I yawned, then sighed. "I know. You don't have to tell me."copyright protection44PENANAAc6O8ktFZ848Please respect copyright.PENANAuU6d5w3Nlw

"So, start talking right now."copyright protection44PENANA6Sudqf8ir948Please respect copyright.PENANA30rZSjRIoI

I looked at Zoey with wide eyes. "You want to talk now?"copyright protection44PENANAY0X7MZiDyY48Please respect copyright.PENANA769jqNaECG

"Ya. I'm still really worried about you."copyright protection44PENANAi9aoXiIrYI48Please respect copyright.PENANAe7AlkGRntc

Looks like I had no choice. This was it. Time to tell the truth.copyright protection44PENANAA4A5i1kqjM48Please respect copyright.PENANAUxdmw6GoO4

"What I'm about to tell you, is going to crush you completely, Zoey."copyright protection44PENANAAhMxozwGd448Please respect copyright.PENANA7VbgfC4pgH

Zoey turned to look at me with a serious look on her face. "What are you saying, Sam? Is it that serious?"copyright protection44PENANAFvePTc8CD648Please respect copyright.PENANA5uOGP9mGwQ

"It really is, and I feel bad that I have to tell you."copyright protection44PENANAldbVitWDUg48Please respect copyright.PENANATrn7OUdui1

I hesitated as I looked down at my hands and played with my fingers. Zoey put her hand over mine and I looked at her.copyright protection44PENANApuxb2WLyDY48Please respect copyright.PENANAyqWJGblLBB

"Just tell me, Sam. Even if it's going to hurt."copyright protection44PENANADitR8n3hZH48Please respect copyright.PENANAsH6gnVqKCX

I closed my eyes bracing myself for impact. My heart was pounding so hard.copyright protection44PENANAnkUzgd3dQX48Please respect copyright.PENANAAvoYDcSQHb

"It's about G-Dragon and I," I said. "I'm sorry to say this but...."copyright protection44PENANAufs1ruYc3B48Please respect copyright.PENANARfBOZi0l3B

"You like him, don't you?"copyright protection44PENANAaGUEy31Bk148Please respect copyright.PENANAXvj3MHZdrB

I opened my eyes in shock. That wasn't supposed to happen. And what made Zoey say all that?copyright protection44PENANAjHmdhDrkRh48Please respect copyright.PENANAa27y0KLTAs

"I..uh...no, that's not it."copyright protection44PENANAilxLmYflbj48Please respect copyright.PENANA4sIFgIXg31

Zoey laughed. "Don't worry, Sam. I know how much you also like him. I'm not mad."copyright protection44PENANAXlZR0yU1ae48Please respect copyright.PENANAS0xb4kS3xk

"Zoey, that wasn't what I...."copyright protection44PENANA3tWpHe38yU48Please respect copyright.PENANAFHnNgox2h8

"Expected from me?" Zoey48Please respect copyright.PENANAulAd1RVZ7Y
grinned as she flipped her hair to the side. "I know, you're surprised.48Please respect copyright.PENANA0ZZyb4S48p
I like him, you like him, the whole world likes him."copyright protection44PENANAqRfYCCXSX848Please respect copyright.PENANAoN7LBn98pr

"Zoey, I..." Zoey placed her index finger on my lips to keep me from talking further.copyright protection44PENANAbUubLuJGwU48Please respect copyright.PENANAhUMS8OJ3NQ

"I know you feel guilty 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2OQ2n26f6e
that you like him because I do too. Don't worry about it, because I know48Please respect copyright.PENANAFv2MgDaqMA
that you wouldn't try to steal him away from me."copyright protection44PENANAVznRZ462dF48Please respect copyright.PENANAS3vFVDtFGh

I gulped. What was I going to tell her now? How was I going to her that G-Dragon liked me and not her?copyright protection44PENANAWEwbC9Nz1L48Please respect copyright.PENANAwJ6nLtpRIv

"Aren't you worried that G-Dragon might just like someone else and not you?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAIdFcorH87d48Please respect copyright.PENANA6o09bhMlIz

Zoey shrugged as she was deep in thought. "I haven't thought of it that way. I know that he only has eyes for me."copyright protection44PENANA23NqVNu1QI48Please respect copyright.PENANAWADrfz4JeL

I wanted to slap my 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0Ku67fzx7i
forehead in frustration but I gave Zoey a weird look instead. I couldn't48Please respect copyright.PENANA3eG4nRlad4
blame her when you were blindly in love. But I had to stop this before 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ9FmAUWFDa
it gets out of hand.copyright protection44PENANAGNmcZZlNzn48Please respect copyright.PENANAqEVVK3bkAj

"Zoey, listen to me," I 48Please respect copyright.PENANACDxjHUa34o
said as I looked at her in the eye. "I admit that I like G-Dragon, but 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7NxMa8H6Nl
not in the way you think. You on the other hand, need to know that...."copyright protection44PENANAyhAdtZFb8N48Please respect copyright.PENANAheZdaKgm4R

I paused. That was odd. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAFHuc1c6cgb
The words were spilling out of my mouth just fine. What's happened now? I48Please respect copyright.PENANAAoZ7b9gSg4
felt someone had just cast a spell on me and now I was tongue tied.copyright protection44PENANApaQdAL05MR48Please respect copyright.PENANAeyjeLtY2P3

Zoey looked at me, irritated that I had stopped talking. "What do I need to know?"copyright protection44PENANAOsEbFDa1qJ48Please respect copyright.PENANATvLoHMBOYR

What was wrong with me? I had so much confidence when I was talking just now and I still do. But now, I couldn't say anything.copyright protection44PENANApY0ZcuZSF748Please respect copyright.PENANAZyfYGq8Xjp

I opened my mouth to speak, but still nothing came out. Zoey shook her head.copyright protection44PENANAF5iviThiZ348Please respect copyright.PENANA1yYkMJOKME

"You're weird, Sam," 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOF9A3QmFFl
Zoey stood up from my bed and went straight for the bathroom. "When you 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwEULDBcMyw
finally have the courage to tell me what you wanted to say, I'll be 48Please respect copyright.PENANAbz4aUQUJBG
waiting."copyright protection44PENANA9NwOYcr9dS48Please respect copyright.PENANAnqlw0pnm43

Zoey closed the door and48Please respect copyright.PENANAIBICnldA8M
I heard the shower tap turn on. Oh no! I blew it this time and that 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6kmauh1o0C
just proves that telling her the truth was going to be a whole lot 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4o2qU3QipV
harder than I thought.copyright protection44PENANASCRTC4oCW448Please respect copyright.PENANAm8w4KUpYux

At least Zoey knew that I48Please respect copyright.PENANALAR7LmoNKp
once liked G-Dragon, that's if she really took what I said seriously. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqPNsfIw61V
This was all so messed up and I felt like I was going nuts.copyright protection44PENANAKB926rWoKV48Please respect copyright.PENANA1n4yrOtRNX

I stood up from my bed 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoyygGjC56n
and started to pace up and down, thinking. What happened to me a few 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuwchZsZvy0
minutes ago? Why couldn't I tell Zoey the truth? Well, half of it, which48Please respect copyright.PENANArAnv8PkBG8
is the most important part.copyright protection44PENANArUIYIHaaQo48Please respect copyright.PENANAz5G7mnrZsy

"It's not your portion to say anything to Zoey. And you know it."copyright protection44PENANA2J1TCEY0gU48Please respect copyright.PENANAmW4yd41dAz

Whatever my conscious 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe29CyirTU7
was saying inside my head was true. G-Dragon did say that he will end 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1tdIBz52yx
things with Zoey and tell her the truth. Was that what I was tongue tied48Please respect copyright.PENANAAUtFtHKuUk
and I couldn't say anything? I had no any other reason as to why.copyright protection44PENANA41vd3CFZ0p48Please respect copyright.PENANA49neLWwcPq

If that was the case, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkRUxzv6ExF
then G-Dragon better do it fast. The earlier it was, the better. Before 48Please respect copyright.PENANAb8AFN4nxzi
Zoey really gets too much involved with him or else she would be 48Please respect copyright.PENANASDrfRccop1
shattered completely.copyright protection44PENANAVsjEq1lBbc48Please respect copyright.PENANAOKSJhsfo6N

While I was trying to 48Please respect copyright.PENANA3iVEYIIlfh
figure out what to do next, my phone rang and I went on the bed to reach48Please respect copyright.PENANAD7U5nLiz9H
out for my phone that laid on top of the drawer next to the lamp.copyright protection44PENANA0eV17xG5yX48Please respect copyright.PENANABYsuIJWX83

When I checked the caller ID, I raised an eyebrow. An unknown number. I wonder who it was?copyright protection44PENANA0CYvQ28v2848Please respect copyright.PENANAKcmFQknyGD

I answered the call. "Hello?"copyright protection44PENANAVXBeB2fXDr48Please respect copyright.PENANAPkLKp9wHJG

"Bonjour, mademoiselle," came a deep husky voice from the phone. The man had a French accent.copyright protection44PENANA9EF4FNCmTa48Please respect copyright.PENANApkERPnBMlJ

I held my breath. That 48Please respect copyright.PENANAP5WcLNw9lc
sent a chill down my spine. Who was this? Dang it! I'm supposed to be 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMbxyVWHrDq
asking that question, not thinking it.copyright protection44PENANAjTNhpEjxam48Please respect copyright.PENANA73LMUA9vmu

I cleared my throat. "Hello? May I know who this is?"copyright protection44PENANAG5jhjUjzSX48Please respect copyright.PENANAfcAcomZVvl

The man chuckled. "Who I am isn't important. What matters is that we talk."copyright protection44PENANA11BG6huIDn48Please respect copyright.PENANA8iwFQrByTf

"Talk? Talk about what?"copyright protection44PENANASWgGeGkydu48Please respect copyright.PENANAY0iKNdkXJH

"Photo? What...?"copyright protection44PENANAqu32a9jERW48Please respect copyright.PENANAvmd124tECm

I paused when I realised the photo he was talking about. I had completely forgot about it.copyright protection44PENANA2KTjr8ZLHc48Please respect copyright.PENANATBnclapG88

"Oh!" I slapped my forehead. "I never downloaded it to see what it was." I raised an eyebrow. "What's the photo about?"copyright protection44PENANAgC6QQgKZKd48Please respect copyright.PENANAnA7hDjA2tO

"If you haven't seen it,48Please respect copyright.PENANAWZb91devRQ

"Are you trying to blackmail me with the photo?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANA5iPb9FsTFc48Please respect copyright.PENANAYPAq4yevVH

"I wouldn't call it blackmail. But everything would be more interesting if you're involved."copyright protection44PENANA7GoPLCHY9f48Please respect copyright.PENANA3syc6HX4qL

"If I'm involved? What do you mean?"copyright protection44PENANA3COT0H9vAb48Please respect copyright.PENANAvZvWIppFxm

I could soon hear the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuwb4XgCbMy
person hanging up and I growled. I looked at my phone like I wanted to 48Please respect copyright.PENANASP0r279ZcA
break it. What was going on today? First, I had G-Dragon and Zoey to 48Please respect copyright.PENANALHzgEiG4Xe
handle and now, I had this stranger calling me and making things worse.copyright protection44PENANAIFuxQEdjyS48Please respect copyright.PENANAqsKCxHTaTF

I looked back at my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIMvJdxQnx2
phone and started to go straight to my messages. I checked the message I48Please respect copyright.PENANAXiKxzpPftN
had received from the unknown man and I realised that I still hadn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAtUfexNWqXP
downloaded the picture. I switched on my mobile data and started to 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6FBBpP9gcG
download the photo.copyright protection44PENANAwFzUvkxcjG48Please respect copyright.PENANAjaZ4HyuwOX

"Sam! Zoey!" Lee came all of the sudden into the room. She almost scared me.copyright protection44PENANAsmjgfjYpPz48Please respect copyright.PENANAjiSzxpmtQj

"Goodness, Lee!" I held my chest as my heart beat fast. "There is a thing called knocking, you know?"copyright protection44PENANABxe655Kioi48Please respect copyright.PENANAiWZUyoJHFW

"Okay. Get ready, we have to leave for the studio."copyright protection44PENANAX22c88iTrG48Please respect copyright.PENANATmzSh7h1PW

I nodded and Lee left. I48Please respect copyright.PENANAXeU3CXRzub
went back to looking at my phone. I frowned. The internet was so slow 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkYPnl2Y7C1
today. The photo hadn't finished downloading yet.copyright protection44PENANAcDBaorEuOl48Please respect copyright.PENANAKvojnGrFHh

"I'm done," said Zoey as she came out of the bathroom in her towel. "You go get ready."copyright protection44PENANATRtFeTHUi848Please respect copyright.PENANACEwxI8uzHY

"I just want to see something first," I said as I pointed at my phone.copyright protection44PENANApfassjAKc148Please respect copyright.PENANAL1XApiDnqf

always the one telling me to get ready and be punctual, but you don't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnOi8CMh7J5

up with you today."copyright protection44PENANAWHu79WqJGD48Please respect copyright.PENANAbmKNKfPrne

If only she knew. So 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzL3RUGDbNn
many things were running in my mind that I couldn't seem to focus on one48Please respect copyright.PENANAg6kMf2fXDb
thing because something else would just pop up all of the sudden.copyright protection44PENANAL71qaBuEP248Please respect copyright.PENANAOOxyCiOrKc

I went to the bathroom 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGjYKaSqO3d
and locked the door behind me. Before I could undress and get into the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAckjw7zzmwc
shower, I went over to the mirror above the sink and looked at my own 48Please respect copyright.PENANAyk05TCoI48
reflection.copyright protection44PENANAXpt6sBvppN48Please respect copyright.PENANAULsSvDLWsP

I looked like I hadn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANA9E9tbg2KDz
had sleep in days with all the dark circles underneath my eyes. I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWbUXhNAFvF
deeply troubled, that's for sure. My problems just got increased by one 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOqqhiWV4Sn
if not by two.copyright protection44PENANAEmu9uE5UoM48Please respect copyright.PENANAT223vekyYX

G-Dragon and Zoey were 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8V92TrQt7l
my main problem to tackle today. And all of the sudden, an unknown 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8WMzd5w99p
stranger calls and tells me about the photo which I had no idea or clue 48Please respect copyright.PENANAw2rz5XNpwM
about. And why he sent it to me, was the most confusing part. If he 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnEIxGBYw55
wasn't blackmailing me, then what was this charade about?copyright protection44PENANAxaUzA5b4K148Please respect copyright.PENANASe1ENeJkoT

After I took a quick 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJUVbu19irF
shower, I quickly went back in the room and I went straight for my phone48Please respect copyright.PENANA5OkOl0qjxv
on Zoey's bed. Zoey had already dressed up and she went past me into 48Please respect copyright.PENANApqJq4xFOR3
the bathroom to get her makeup done.copyright protection44PENANA6HqAOTcjiC48Please respect copyright.PENANAIBYDMtFWL6

I unlocked my phone. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANABRVWFgX5Au
was pretty anxious about the photo that even my hands were shaking. The 48Please respect copyright.PENANAB0Vkq0S6OJ
photo must be done downloading by now.copyright protection44PENANA6XYB6sgcnE48Please respect copyright.PENANA9wl8a7BP3n

Just as I unlocked the phone, it vibrated. Someone was calling me. Oh no! What now?copyright protection44PENANAZVOUvp0GtK48Please respect copyright.PENANAWFeRBU8yZJ

Seungri was calling. What could he probably want to talk to me about this early in the morning?copyright protection44PENANAHAr8bf1nzk48Please respect copyright.PENANA3AJYVaYNgN

"Hello, Seungri?" I answered.copyright protection44PENANAZGiYhorxBO48Please respect copyright.PENANAxpkSyv09l4

"Morning, my panda," said Seungri.copyright protection44PENANAcAK1vfqvWU48Please respect copyright.PENANAwhJL8lFhUF

"Morning. How was your night?"copyright protection44PENANAfEuHMGXO3w48Please respect copyright.PENANA0YgJXcTWZa

"My night was perfect, since I dreamt of you."copyright protection44PENANA93cr2uQt2r48Please respect copyright.PENANAJxA4p8zqhU

If I was myself, I would have blushed by those words. But now, I was as confused as ever and I didn't know what to say next.copyright protection44PENANAhe22fyhG3e48Please respect copyright.PENANAuOcezkzfCu

"Oh, wow," I said, trying to act a little surprised. I hope he bought it.copyright protection44PENANAAjS50FLXtP48Please respect copyright.PENANAUCsbmqngmn

"I've a little something I want to give you when you get to YG."copyright protection44PENANAuDTG4VaVoc48Please respect copyright.PENANAq5U09k8JKq

I smiled a little. At 48Please respect copyright.PENANADeePsOa23N
least out of all that was going on, Seungri managed to make me smile. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwYpZaMpx2L
Which was quiet peculiar because he didn't say anything funny. I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAVsRPt1aBKU
already imagining a huge stuffed panda waiting for me.copyright protection44PENANAnGrqIGY0m248Please respect copyright.PENANA2o9geB5pE9

"Can't wait," I said with a little laugh. "See you."copyright protection44PENANAeXm62nLOlf48Please respect copyright.PENANAcb8CaioAQq

"You too."copyright protection44PENANADPSwvXsGTQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAmLTeBmfLY0

He cut the line and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAG0pPhErm45
threw my phone on the bed. I decided to dress up first and have my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwhgETrWi2M
breakfast, before Zoey came back in the room and start to pressurise me 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIoyCC9ZSVX
again. I had already pissed her enough this morning.copyright protection44PENANASgxjGf0Fgn48Please respect copyright.PENANASBYiqfWRC1

After I dressed up and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAX8ieMcFJuH
Zoey had left for breakfast, I went in the bathroom to get my hair done 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwd65PJeOB9
and applied a bit of makeup to hide my dark circles. When I was done, I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMuKKMb0J3C
went back in the room and without a thought of making my bed, which I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAL0L3eyfUiJ
always did, I wore my black pumps, grabbed my phone and went out of the 48Please respect copyright.PENANACOWITMr8B2
room.copyright protection44PENANAIuk5BnsmbN48Please respect copyright.PENANAinx38je83i

Just as I got into the lounge, I made a bee line to the dining table. Everyone was at the table eating their breakfast.copyright protection44PENANACODvl9sOPl48Please respect copyright.PENANALOiwSx57rn

"Someone isn't themselves this morning," said Collins as he watched me approach the dining table.copyright protection44PENANAEICc2jr2ZH48Please respect copyright.PENANAR3cOM6Bdec

I knew he talking about how late I was today. I was usually the earliest to be at the dining table.copyright protection44PENANAqHcLNN8faj48Please respect copyright.PENANAgxANAI7PRb

"No pressure, just eat up, we have a lot of work to do today."copyright protection44PENANA6WoJ8q2At148Please respect copyright.PENANACRsPGeVhs9

There was a variety of breakfast options today and I decided to take some cereal, which I haven't had in a while.copyright protection44PENANAiUJvFxiNMt48Please respect copyright.PENANAtJH3xhME6E

As I got the box of cereal and poured the contents in the bowl in front of me, I couldn't help feel all eyes were on me.copyright protection44PENANA6QgewyIni048Please respect copyright.PENANAQdhQDrIBHJ

I looked up and just as I had guessed it, all eyes were definitely on me. What had I done now? I put the box of cereal down.copyright protection44PENANA3pXr86SbHm48Please respect copyright.PENANAZkAs9gH4x9

I looked at everyone on the table and when they didn't say a word, I shrugged my shoulders.copyright protection44PENANAd0gXvVuOJg48Please respect copyright.PENANAe1TV5qdR5j

"What?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAhP6x4D5M0o48Please respect copyright.PENANAwVxOLbfuMX

Mike who sat opposite me cleared his throat. "You're eating cereal."copyright protection44PENANAN4OLvWRo8y48Please respect copyright.PENANAdMhOfr5WvC

"But there is bacon and eggs with toast," said Daniel.copyright protection44PENANA3avaIzOOmP48Please respect copyright.PENANAd7qLWcXbHJ

I was still confused. "So?"copyright protection44PENANAd9T1UoYMN648Please respect copyright.PENANA9UwqJLSOHo

"You usually don't eat cereal when there is bacon, eggs and toast," said Collins.copyright protection44PENANAlxrUyJYvwR48Please respect copyright.PENANArN85NPPcIq

"And cereal is kind of like my thing," said Daniel.copyright protection44PENANAaz2GJLfyzC48Please respect copyright.PENANAHWy7IujFG0

"I don't see the harm in48Please respect copyright.PENANAxVcF10vQcd

Everyone else looked at each other and then they looked back at me, shaking their heads.copyright protection44PENANAAe9CUTnarX48Please respect copyright.PENANAduiolkgGGO

"Thank you," I said as I got a jug of milk and poured into the bowl. "I haven't had sweet cereal in a while and I miss it."copyright protection44PENANAMOKy4yfJkI48Please respect copyright.PENANAH3LzlEIie0

"I can see that," said 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJcP5okszkG
Zoey as she drank from her cup of coffee. I knew she was making fun of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYxbhWwCcci
me but I decided not to say anything.copyright protection44PENANAbcxbwhJzZM48Please respect copyright.PENANA1UmNuHrc0F

When we were done with 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdKS2QgmjQG
breakfast, we headed downstairs in the lobby and the black SUV was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZOeb6aHInU
waiting for us as usual. When we got in, I made sure to take the back 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1pPncj5Ew6
seat with my brothers next to the window so that I would avoid people 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjJQcMGt9Zk
looking at my phone.copyright protection44PENANA9z0icVcA5D48Please respect copyright.PENANAQZ95afgSXD

When everyone in the car48Please respect copyright.PENANANY3CmfWrTt
were engrossed in some conversation that I had no interest in listening48Please respect copyright.PENANAxddoqZ4T84
to, I decided to check my phone. The photo was done downloading and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdZ4m4eCk7z
what I saw made my mouth drop and my eyes pop.copyright protection44PENANAxRsiqwQFgb48Please respect copyright.PENANAYVy1yUhvmb

"What's wrong, Sam?" Mike who sat next to me asked.copyright protection44PENANAosoWDUdnuc48Please respect copyright.PENANAYUobiPbnIj

I quickly pressed the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAsWiwjmLVHT
power button on the side of the phone and blacked the screen. Mike was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvFO4GnZXSl
already leaning onto my side to see what was on my phone.copyright protection44PENANAaDMbWY69yc48Please respect copyright.PENANA8Qgx1zmdX5

"Nothing, just some scary video," I said.copyright protection44PENANAM63fotLf9248Please respect copyright.PENANAwp2PVlcHhT

Mike leaned back and folded his arms. "Whatever."copyright protection44PENANAatE29wRNvP48Please respect copyright.PENANAsJBXcvueMe

I wish I could tell him 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe9vCyCXjVZ

keeping everything to myself, not after what I had seen.copyright protection44PENANA0FAkTA2BmZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAbVaNTnjoB5

Now that I had seen the 48Please respect copyright.PENANADQf9sNLq6H
photo, I had to meet up with the stranger and talk about all this. But 48Please respect copyright.PENANApsP2EKGwG9
where to meet the person and when was going to be a hustle. It was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXR57FYuYn6
pretty obvious that I had to meet him alone.copyright protection44PENANAtaoStBKVyk48Please respect copyright.PENANA41Wjap6WQd

Speaking of which, I 48Please respect copyright.PENANADfGtikdYRT
still had to convince G-Dragon about telling Zoey the truth. Now how was48Please respect copyright.PENANA7OLcWrbrpz
I going to do that given the little time I had in my hands? We had a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAytAuMLUTHK
music video to prepare for and we had to start working on the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7l0OOi81g0
choreography today. This was hectic. And I knew that if I was pushed 48Please respect copyright.PENANAVoPHBL8Ndx
further onto the edge, I would burst.copyright protection44PENANAUJOzMY5DMA48Please respect copyright.PENANAmL1XfOJaHr

Time seemed so short, given that I was thinking of ways to do things today. The next thing I knew, we had finally arrived at YG.copyright protection44PENANAtMg36aD9M048Please respect copyright.PENANAUPMVDBdMCu

My heart skipped a beat.48Please respect copyright.PENANAMySBgunohA
I swallowed. This was it. G-Dragon was probably with the others waiting48Please respect copyright.PENANAWElYCBMlMu
for us inside. For a moment, I didn't want to go in. But I had no 48Please respect copyright.PENANANGjzCWaPIN
choice.copyright protection44PENANA9fax7E9SAI48Please respect copyright.PENANAjvmc6CHu1Y

As soon as I stepped out48Please respect copyright.PENANA4YDqWg2ICO
of the vehicle, I took a deep breath as I looked at the entrance. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcpvwY7t9Wb
felt like I was about to walk into hell and that frightened me.copyright protection44PENANAdus23e09SM48Please respect copyright.PENANAXgHjtNWahY

"You're aren't the only 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZasGuVuq5M

were heading towards the elevator and we joined them.copyright protection44PENANA7Onm2TIUAX48Please respect copyright.PENANAHFMCh12T7c

"You will be going up to the dance studio guys," Collins said as he turned to us. "The others are waiting for you there."copyright protection44PENANAnYplPTnUpy48Please respect copyright.PENANAigjwDOdHEU

"Okay," the others responded. I for one felt really jumpy at the moment.copyright protection44PENANARGubyrT6AF48Please respect copyright.PENANATUlCPGepPX

We all got in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJxCvaUxdNF
elevator and Mike was busy talking about some dance moves he had come up48Please respect copyright.PENANAp6VJCzyPgd
with and I wasn't really paying attention though I did get one or two 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ985MXL1nB
things.copyright protection44PENANAuItR4wLMqm48Please respect copyright.PENANAY69BCjvawi

We got to the dance 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPWoLF0keQB
studio while Lee and Collins decided to go upstairs to meet with Yang 48Please respect copyright.PENANArALzFyxrzU
Hyun-suk. We checked a few dance studios before we finally found them.copyright protection44PENANAJOk99a2x4s48Please respect copyright.PENANA3y1c9DwEO2

"Hey, guys!" Zoey greeted so enthusiastically as we came in the room.copyright protection44PENANA5W8z7H11OB48Please respect copyright.PENANAWEZlpFmKTc

I was too lost in 48Please respect copyright.PENANAllN7VtFsUe
thought to even reply to the other's greetings until Seungri came up to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnXMoaW2GAQ
me and hugged me. That brought me right back down to earth.copyright protection44PENANAGikaaoGWb748Please respect copyright.PENANAJxuITUnfFh

"Hey, what's wrong with you?" Seungri asked, still hugging me.copyright protection44PENANAiUVD35N6CS48Please respect copyright.PENANAs1Cf8yIN0D

"I'm fine," I said, as I pulled myself away.copyright protection44PENANAyIOHiWpjXd48Please respect copyright.PENANA2nBOMLLOrl

"If I know you well, you look pretty occupied in that head of yours," said TOP as he walked up to us.copyright protection44PENANAVEvfOGDvDO48Please respect copyright.PENANAFbTaTM5h1K

"Tell me about it," said48Please respect copyright.PENANAyuLbJUJsHK
Zoey as she was now on the floor with Daesung standing right beside her48Please respect copyright.PENANA5J8GyUrjJT
and she was removing her shoes. "She's been weird all morning."copyright protection44PENANACWJyzMEnTg48Please respect copyright.PENANAFo4yyYlEfm

"How weird?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection44PENANAfsZ4ah0zAY48Please respect copyright.PENANAoOQa0A4K2M

"Too weird," said Daniel.copyright protection44PENANAMvCiKrYnWC48Please respect copyright.PENANAv8wDP4yhoh

"Cut me some slack, guys," I said. I looked at Taeyang. "They are just saying nonsense."copyright protection44PENANAczyV78ILvC48Please respect copyright.PENANAa4FfDeeYSt

"Says the person who was so late to wake up today," said Zoey.copyright protection44PENANA2L41PeiQOS48Please respect copyright.PENANAlhicrjMw3P

"And ate sweet cereal for breakfast instead of bacon, eggs and toast," said Christine.copyright protection44PENANAOAorS8SRwP48Please respect copyright.PENANAiyXOcNTK4i

"And refused to give me her phone to check out what she was watching," said Mike.copyright protection44PENANAtJo2EwanhF48Please respect copyright.PENANA1emHuZWIXP

I shrugged. "So? And Mike, seriously? Just over a phone?" I shook my head at my brother.copyright protection44PENANAZjq4kgjD6848Please respect copyright.PENANAcj6vvyOh4S

"It's not like you, Sam," said Daniel. "That's all we are trying to say."copyright protection44PENANAwUIUmB3etA48Please respect copyright.PENANA7mq5bDS5nW

I rubbed my forehead. "Look, guys, I'm just a little bummed out because of yesterday. Is that so wrong?"copyright protection44PENANA4WjtZYZ9lg48Please respect copyright.PENANAnobK6FJ2oH

"No, I think something is bothering you," said Zoey, still on the floor.copyright protection44PENANAPlAgqVwKyC48Please respect copyright.PENANARB0X6vvVNA

"I'm fine. Trust me. My mind is pretty tired."copyright protection44PENANAS5xAZTc38F48Please respect copyright.PENANANUXe08RSee

"Come on, guys, let's not stress her out because of this," said Daesung. "If she says she is tired, then she is."copyright protection44PENANADcCWFBUEKg48Please respect copyright.PENANAOBDZlKF5M4

Zoey slapped Daesung's leg with her hand and Daesung looked down at her. "Don't try to defend her."copyright protection44PENANAVzBvP2rmMZ48Please respect copyright.PENANANDGOBMj7H7

"I'm not."copyright protection44PENANAYE5vf5or8w48Please respect copyright.PENANAHv2FJ2OAU2

Zoey snickered at him and I knew why. She still remembered the little incident yesterday with Daesung and I.copyright protection44PENANA6LJIIokC3448Please respect copyright.PENANAPJDtJZdp5Z

"Where is G-Dragon?" Daniel asked.copyright protection44PENANATZEvvuxWQj48Please respect copyright.PENANAuSDaGfW0nE

I looked around the room and I noticed that GD was the only group member who wasn't here.copyright protection44PENANAWOY1ke6IFe48Please respect copyright.PENANA749aKTcyt7

"He went to get the choreographer," TOP answered.copyright protection44PENANAfM0YvInPlr48Please respect copyright.PENANAAjQeMAe0Zj

"Now, Sam, about your little problem...." said Mike, turning to face me.copyright protection44PENANAUeryJW3gTT48Please respect copyright.PENANA0tbDDRTASg

"Not now, Mike," I said as I folded my arms. "You can attack me later, just not now."copyright protection44PENANAAPIzR2NXLs48Please respect copyright.PENANAf0lpa5inDL

"Not to worry, my little kitty," said Seungri who stood right behind me. "Maybe this will cheer you up."copyright protection44PENANAc1fd0KVnzh48Please respect copyright.PENANAue5ltSVHSV

Before I could turn 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0Socw24pDW
around to ask what he meant, I felt something settle at the top of my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAFSW0h76zuK
head. My hand reached for whatever it was.copyright protection44PENANAPtvg2ed5v648Please respect copyright.PENANAlYYqjsif9b

"A lovely crown for the lovely queen of k-pop," said Seungri.copyright protection44PENANAZ6VHFMKsKw48Please respect copyright.PENANAaa3znzBrZe

I took the crown from 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoE7lFosMYW
the top of my head to look at it. It looked more like a tiara but it was48Please respect copyright.PENANAwjVvKfX2u7
big enough to be called a crown. It was silver and studded around with 48Please respect copyright.PENANAeFiheFRQ7R
what looked like real diamonds. Perched in the middle surrounded by 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4wwcRbAkXy
diamonds was a sapphire stone in an oval shape.copyright protection44PENANAVXxabxV7Vv48Please respect copyright.PENANAhtScZCrWFW

"Wait, are these real diamonds?" I asked as I turned to look at Seungri with a surprised look on my face.copyright protection44PENANAoKZT118e7E48Please respect copyright.PENANA3TBlbQ13G9

"It is," said Seungri 48Please respect copyright.PENANAULFqXxBySz
with a huge smile on his face. "And I know how much you value sapphire 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7930l2CNZi
stones because it's your birth stone."copyright protection44PENANAk6KgOq3ySO48Please respect copyright.PENANAK2bmoncqqT

"Aww! Thank you so much,48Please respect copyright.PENANAAkEfKCNmbF
Seungri!" I gave him a hug and I couldn't stop smiling. Somehow, I knew48Please respect copyright.PENANAVjPZja2VY1
he was going to brighten up my day today.copyright protection44PENANA5OLCYXaU4548Please respect copyright.PENANAdI4p4tMhUc

"So pretty, let me see," said Christine, as she came and took the crown from my hand. "Wow!"copyright protection44PENANApsQomRqv6x48Please respect copyright.PENANAauxPKhsxDD

"I want to wear it," 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdzW2zfdBbc
said Zoey as she got up from the floor and rushed to look at the crown. 48Please respect copyright.PENANADpUHOZbBh5
Christine put the crown on Zoey's head.copyright protection44PENANA9rEUHskK1d48Please respect copyright.PENANAOrzlhjDJRh

"Don't I look like a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAm5Rj8qyl2K
true queen?" Zoey asked as she looked at her reflection through the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAyG9toYszAJ
studio mirrors that lined up the walls of the room.copyright protection44PENANAy61kJ0hTUl48Please respect copyright.PENANAEobeKsynbq

"You look like that evil witch in those fairy tale fantasy movies," said Mike.copyright protection44PENANAZkOQJaH9GO48Please respect copyright.PENANAFyvwRDWqZZ

"Haha, very funny," Zoey said as she turned to look at Mike.copyright protection44PENANAGQflKWN5HP48Please respect copyright.PENANAbxFk13jtDT

"When did you even have the time to get it done, Seungri?" I asked, still a little surprised.copyright protection44PENANAifWkzFkRzf48Please respect copyright.PENANAdhiow2R5q2

"I have my way of doing things just to impress you," said Seungri with a corky smile.copyright protection44PENANAcyz0ojb6sR48Please respect copyright.PENANAv5B0CsEyTE

"Thank you. You don't know how much you just made me smile."copyright protection44PENANAV9Haus7ixO48Please respect copyright.PENANAy4cepdhIHU

"It can clearly show on your face." Seungri softly pinched my cheek and I blushed.copyright protection44PENANA7Q43aEJvvi48Please respect copyright.PENANABUcUjJWaOn

"I should get my own crown," said Christine who also wore the crown and was looking at herself in the mirror.copyright protection44PENANAKHRkIgDTn648Please respect copyright.PENANAdjsOk4hZDb

"May her royal majesty 48Please respect copyright.PENANADcfQqF3InL
get her crown back?" Taeyang asked as he came behind Christine and took 48Please respect copyright.PENANADZFQTZzQao
the crown from her head. He came up to me and put the crown on my head.copyright protection44PENANALifttKVB2t48Please respect copyright.PENANAdoHGd2Lu2p

"Oh, hail the queen!" Taeyang chanted and I broke into a laugh, playfully hitting him on the shoulder.copyright protection44PENANAp9ktdu7X0D48Please respect copyright.PENANAGFBVw2BAKY

"Stop it, will you? You're making me blush," I said, trying to cover my laugh with my hand.copyright protection44PENANAgLk763oKXL48Please respect copyright.PENANAlnY0dR0NIa

"You look just like a real queen, Sam," said TOP.copyright protection44PENANAQI45cxP88S48Please respect copyright.PENANAbVzTBMVnhY

"Thanks." I was still blushing like crazy.copyright protection44PENANABy2W2gqadr48Please respect copyright.PENANAMXEnTapuKa

"Let me take a photo," said Daesung, pulling out his phone.copyright protection44PENANANtc8BibZ2848Please respect copyright.PENANAt5yr6Lj6z1

"Ya. The whole world should see the queen of k-pop," said Zoey.copyright protection44PENANAKSRPY3mObv48Please respect copyright.PENANAhKXQDyCzWT

"Are you really calling me that?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAGN4JK6Zahc48Please respect copyright.PENANAxIRb6Kmve6

"We did win last night, didn't we?" Zoey asked. "Of course I'm calling you that."copyright protection44PENANAC4FOcg6og948Please respect copyright.PENANAGHbe8i0soz

I rolled my eyes. "I wasn't really taking it that seriously. It was nothing but a game."copyright protection44PENANAw11oQ0sdPE48Please respect copyright.PENANAtGjqxXZawV

"A game we won. Cheer up. We are all kings and queens with you."copyright protection44PENANAIwsMfcTema48Please respect copyright.PENANA44DVgJFCfT

I looked on at Zoey trying to smile as best as I could, but somehow I couldn't.copyright protection44PENANAqZe6NrnTQD48Please respect copyright.PENANAIWBUaKcacB

She couldn't tell the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAKFi36P15Zx
look on my face because she didn't even ask. Daesung went ahead and took48Please respect copyright.PENANA13CEYSoEvE
pictures of me, then we huddled together as a group to take a group 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxdA88LTlW5
photo with me in the middle.copyright protection44PENANA3nE4Lu5dHU48Please respect copyright.PENANAWGKfKQ4LW4

"Hey, what's going on here?" G-Dragon asked as he came in the room.copyright protection44PENANARqqjdFv6US48Please respect copyright.PENANAjX8VC6O1Kj

"Taking photos with the queen," said Daniel.copyright protection44PENANAglRvrFXPzN48Please respect copyright.PENANAFixgrF2k1Z

"The queen?" G-Dragon looked confused until he saw the crown on top of my head. "Oh..."copyright protection44PENANAsCa7GWCM9k48Please respect copyright.PENANApYFadq1icX

"It's pretty, isn't it?" Zoey asked. "You should also get me one."copyright protection44PENANAH1K7lYNR4I48Please respect copyright.PENANAmvVurxBgzm

"I can make a gold one if you want," said G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANAKl3BRvhPkQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAAeE7v6NyrO

Zoey smiled. "Even better."copyright protection44PENANACNsNV9JxVT48Please respect copyright.PENANAxQMd10E3iQ

G-Dragon turned to 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1EmW9OuK43
Taeyang. "The choreographer is going to be here any moment now. So I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6EiLMOSAmj
suggest we bring out your ideas if you have any. We can start without 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoUab7bcMeu
him and he will find us."copyright protection44PENANASCVCKgBy7G48Please respect copyright.PENANACf9YciMG2R

"Mike told me over the phone earlier that he had some brand ideas," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANAgS1jtTPLI948Please respect copyright.PENANAJ9v2ViQNSd

"Ya, I do," said Mike. "You guys just watch. I have the song in my phone so I'll play it from there."copyright protection44PENANABlX39ScTq848Please respect copyright.PENANA6h7gtfrF1G

We all stood on one side48Please respect copyright.PENANA9EViD7BpOE
of the room while Mike took off his jacket and got his phone to search 48Please respect copyright.PENANAhyNMAJ5rwX
for the track. He gave Daniel to hold the phone and when he positioned 48Please respect copyright.PENANAECeMSH2km4
himself in the middle of the room and turned to look at us.copyright protection44PENANAMiLHUvYw4648Please respect copyright.PENANA1wIXPl5qLT

"So, I was thinking, 48Please respect copyright.PENANA42rSP2BUt7
since G-Dragon and Zoey start the first verse, they should open up the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAR8K6UDNWXa
dance floor. So, I need someone to act as Zoey so that I could show you 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1ZGJWw51WQ
guys."copyright protection44PENANAckYeEs7tdQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAU1SmTIouCS

Christine came forward 48Please respect copyright.PENANACu0mAVZoSX
and Mike gave her a few instructions on what to do. She nodded her head 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzTWgDTMIUI
and Mike told Daniel to press the play button on cue.copyright protection44PENANADOcARmt4fT48Please respect copyright.PENANAyPKrbD9A8M

With Christine and Mike 48Please respect copyright.PENANAtKhu7Rp7gi
each facing opposite directions with their backs touching, the music 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4Qb16OVSwP
started to play. Still not looking at each other, the two started the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAB5FlwQZGr7
dance with each of them taking a step forward, breaking the contact 48Please respect copyright.PENANAtUSKpZCO6S
between them and then like a powerful force pulling them, they dragged 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6bIidP78IE
themselves back and they again their backs touched.copyright protection44PENANAc1bXJ6tICx48Please respect copyright.PENANAYjJDFguEXV

With a bit of skillful 48Please respect copyright.PENANALqQEafDM4K
footwork, they turned to face each other and with their hands, they drew48Please respect copyright.PENANAFbVot9dBhV
closer and then skidded away from each other with their hands in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfgfYTUfnzc
air.copyright protection44PENANAOOSM3xea1r48Please respect copyright.PENANAjlCaZNqDzu

"Then you guys will come in through the middle then make a formation in front."copyright protection44PENANA1Egef7AJcP48Please respect copyright.PENANAnfGiDarRLJ

"That's pretty awesome," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANACpROmBUQjx48Please respect copyright.PENANAN0Z2ZTXegx

"Very smart," said G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANAn7mgUpN8AP48Please respect copyright.PENANArzS3KSQavq

"Let's practise that," said Zoey taking G-Dragon's hand and taking him in the middle of the dance floor.copyright protection44PENANAABtQQJYqta48Please respect copyright.PENANAFSFlbjvDah

"I'll take you through the moves," said Mike as he faced them.copyright protection44PENANAg5z7TWJON248Please respect copyright.PENANAmYhm0hfYww

"Your brother is a total genius, isn't he?" TOP asked as he stood next to me.copyright protection44PENANAlaaIr47fcH48Please respect copyright.PENANAvX6o1QgS0L

"Ya, he is," I said with a smile.copyright protection44PENANA4NiyD8iCzL48Please respect copyright.PENANAiGDY1Ohxss

The door soon opened and48Please respect copyright.PENANAOPq6brnrqU
the person who I guessed was our choreographer walked in. We stopped 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXVR4jTUALV
what we were doing and bowed as he came further in the room.copyright protection44PENANANPQnXKkGz748Please respect copyright.PENANAl4BZ2DNkag

"So, I see you guys are already getting started," said the choreographer.copyright protection44PENANAJViTDJXKY948Please respect copyright.PENANANZ5e5gFtI6

"Yes, we are," said Seungri.copyright protection44PENANAr2XKBATTds48Please respect copyright.PENANAnG1fKl8EVU

"Okay, let me see what you have done so far."copyright protection44PENANAE0ivnggHWP48Please respect copyright.PENANAAgYbf1P3l0

Mike and Christine 48Please respect copyright.PENANAk9Zpn5F3yo
stepped forward and the music playing on Mikes phone, they did the dance48Please respect copyright.PENANA9W4abOwktr
routine. After their hands broke apart, Mike explained how the rest of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe3IcfYe42z
us will come in the scene.copyright protection44PENANAOFL7zoQw9P48Please respect copyright.PENANA4mI4L69r9I

"Mmmm," the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQiEUsPJZac
choreographer looked on at Mike as he tapped his chin. For a moment I 48Please respect copyright.PENANArof9Bu8Pzb
thought he was going to say something bad, but he didn't.copyright protection44PENANAGASDltefmr48Please respect copyright.PENANApEy8IkeSMn

"I like it," said the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAACGex94g8e
choreographer. "So far, the starting part is brilliant. I wouldn't have 48Please respect copyright.PENANAszDHJfcS5M
thought of anything better. Now let's see if Zoey and G-Dragon could 48Please respect copyright.PENANA3vqCD9WS1I
quickly work on their moves then we will come to the part when everyone 48Please respect copyright.PENANAgBlWQS5U8e
comes in."copyright protection44PENANAH1r0wPgNxd48Please respect copyright.PENANA9ANNix2vp8

Zoey and G-Dragon took 48Please respect copyright.PENANAhtDI5gR29S
to the center and with Mike telling and showing them what to do, they 48Please respect copyright.PENANALqu6nlZtf7
did so accordingly. After a few tries, they got the hang of it and they 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHpIvc12fwr
were perfect.copyright protection44PENANACmTotsMkYV48Please respect copyright.PENANAnNV0v1hn3q

"Excellent," said the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAgORLVe6UHl
choreographer as he stood in front of us. "Now, when they break apart, 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2oLLTXMVci
that's when the rest of you guys come in through the space in between 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnA6jACkRZn
them like a doorway. We will come in a straight line and then make a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAigca18o735
formation in front of them."copyright protection44PENANA9Ew1iSuw7R48Please respect copyright.PENANAt5ueRocDkp

We did as the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWHZ31zFlrF
choreographer said and the next hour, we were practising our hearts out 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJKVWUX4i47
for the music video. We made a few mistakes here and there, but we got 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoxdTM4hYIB
the hang of it.copyright protection44PENANAXPSpPpf6cM48Please respect copyright.PENANAnEjmHkWnGn

A few minutes later, 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2p7Yl1Wpk0
most of us were splayed on the floor after the choreographer announced 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxJyLCkQTjy
that we can take a break. Most of us with our backs on the floor and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvGcO3U9ZhP
staring at the ceiling. Some, were seated.copyright protection44PENANAjP9ddDFZXE48Please respect copyright.PENANAmkfujAvf0Q

"This is why I hate dancing," said TOP, laying opposite me staring at the ceiling.copyright protection44PENANAV6js8BkD7s48Please respect copyright.PENANAgyzPjba95t

I laughed, also staring 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHA9UpcPzc7
at the ceiling. "I love dancing. It just makes you forget about all your48Please respect copyright.PENANApyrE2Lfy1g
problems for a while. It's kind of like sleeping."copyright protection44PENANAu4hmu6LJdY48Please respect copyright.PENANAphOY68aghg

"Ya, true," said Christine who also had her back on the floor and laid a few feet away from me.copyright protection44PENANAwxNFK0jp0g48Please respect copyright.PENANAJZQTUg6KQi

Speaking of problems, I completely forgot about that French guy.copyright protection44PENANA3WnnovYJ9648Please respect copyright.PENANARfRjTU49t5

I quickly scrambled up 48Please respect copyright.PENANApSneRum2KE
from the floor passing Mike and Taeyang who were seated on the floor and48Please respect copyright.PENANAiuE9oypvjf
still talking about the dance moves. I went to the corner of the room 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOavFtpAyy4
where we had piled up our shoes and phones and my crown. I got my purse 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEYW2cOwzRg
and removed my phone.copyright protection44PENANAbDbs0FzMoM48Please respect copyright.PENANAd9LRiaqIFJ

I sent a message to the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYtTu9nTJWs
stranger telling him that I had already seen the photo. Thinking that he48Please respect copyright.PENANAOAqKCDz9cq
would reply later on, he repiled in an instant. That was fast. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqpAbhTlHB0
imagined he had been waiting for me to either call or text.copyright protection44PENANAKVkxB4xUty48Please respect copyright.PENANAqAuk4DIXnE

"Good. We should meet."copyright protection44PENANAbxuyUT4TCd48Please respect copyright.PENANApbfQWStw1F

consequences."
copyright protection44PENANA7TtbpS9Ol048Please respect copyright.PENANAzDnOUzZQ7z

I growled. This guy had put me in a tight corner and I couldn't refuse.copyright protection44PENANAP2RGBSN0IL48Please respect copyright.PENANAX2gcL77Xw8

"That's my girl."copyright protection44PENANAFHE9S311Sn48Please respect copyright.PENANAtckQ0fp06x

I wanted to throw up. I bet this guy was way older than me and him calling me his girl made me nauseous.copyright protection44PENANA2HqTn1Lb2u48Please respect copyright.PENANAA3zQglYniu

As I tucked my phone 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvS3OwL2aBG
back into my purse, I looked up and everyone was still resting. Luckily 48Please respect copyright.PENANAS4ScUTskUy
their eyes weren't on me. I went to lay back down with TOP when I 48Please respect copyright.PENANARuBrkSMif4
realised that Mike and Taeyang weren't the only ones engrossed in their 48Please respect copyright.PENANANLXRAuCCEe
own conversation. G-Dragon and Zoey were too.copyright protection44PENANAW7ikDkhylR48Please respect copyright.PENANAiwibJc5bwZ

I looked at them and unlike the others, they were whispering. I wondered what they were talking about in secret.copyright protection44PENANAk0yZ9r3btV48Please respect copyright.PENANAJotlPOdC6t

When they both turned to48Please respect copyright.PENANAGUfELP8orM
look at me, they quickly looked away again. My face turned pale. Oh, 48Please respect copyright.PENANACKjUW271eE
no. Were they talking about me? Their look sent me weird vibes and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1X3ujSjwvp
couldn't help but feel that they were.copyright protection44PENANAzvDZp11ac448Please respect copyright.PENANA0bkfP55Yux

I laid back down 48Please respect copyright.PENANAK7h41d69fk
pretending that all was alright. I stared up the ceiling as I thought. 48Please respect copyright.PENANANgiQLBJ48e

that I'm wrong) G-Dragon wouldn't like this at all. We agreed that he 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuDg0Wkyuvf
would tell Zoey everything. And just a few hours ago, I had almost told 48Please respect copyright.PENANAg0KjO77fdZ
her the whole truth. So much for trying to be honest.copyright protection44PENANACHEbGODKZ648Please respect copyright.PENANANymvkxDmCe

Still in my own thoughts, the door to the studio opened. Collins, Lee and Yang Hyun-suk came in.copyright protection44PENANAFzBiy0jAbw48Please respect copyright.PENANAD7SU7PfFjK

"I see you guys are bummed out," said Collins with a smirk on his face as he looked at each of us.copyright protection44PENANAERFPO8E6U248Please respect copyright.PENANAVzKGSzN0O0

"Ya, we are," said Seungri, his back also on the floor.copyright protection44PENANAKxJoJqcmac48Please respect copyright.PENANAZCzl8TTLgv

"Okay, guys, sit up, we have something to tell you," said Yang Hyun-suk.copyright protection44PENANAsQL48k5sUg48Please respect copyright.PENANA0UCSOKH4p0

Most of us who were on lying on the floor sat up and looked on intently at our managers and Lee.copyright protection44PENANAYy7DoWM33H48Please respect copyright.PENANAOlAz1t8OtX

"We came up with where we will be shooting the music video," said Yang Hyun-suk.copyright protection44PENANA5NePbXgnkq48Please respect copyright.PENANAPtApPIiIuy

"Where?" Christine and Daesung asked at the same time.copyright protection44PENANAzMhkRpEWRz48Please respect copyright.PENANAdvtQnhA5l0

"Caribbean Bay," answered Collins.copyright protection44PENANAdQ8luwhhzk48Please respect copyright.PENANA6alHJmaRbD

"Caribbean Bay?" I asked with my eyebrow raised.copyright protection44PENANAYF7cujaKGu48Please respect copyright.PENANAP17pqW7JEC

"It's not the only place we would be shooting the video," said Lee, tilting her head at me.copyright protection44PENANAbghsA8Sf4K48Please respect copyright.PENANAiR7LIv3iBo

"But it would be more likely that we would shoot it at Caribbean Bay?"copyright protection44PENANAPiAXD5tUm348Please respect copyright.PENANAjHzEpi1zac

"That's right," said Yang Hyun-suk. "Do you think it's a bad idea?"copyright protection44PENANAfkInwdGHYm48Please respect copyright.PENANAdZekoEgwoU

"No. It sounds great."copyright protection44PENANAbaCsCdBvtF48Please respect copyright.PENANA9GMgrvLuNm

"Well, the song is based on fun," said Zoey. "And we did have fun there."copyright protection44PENANAfiXQfAVJvh48Please respect copyright.PENANAT74sLtLM3V

"Well, not for some of us who ended up playing cop," I said, replaying in my mind what a hectic time I had that day.copyright protection44PENANANKBw88JOPH48Please respect copyright.PENANAZgUdBjSRQg

"Haha, that was fun," said Daniel, staring off into space with a smile.copyright protection44PENANAa1SNuu150v48Please respect copyright.PENANAMZXyfo31TR

"So, you finish up the choreography today and then we can start shooting the video on Monday."copyright protection44PENANAKfOI64j2NP48Please respect copyright.PENANAoNYtfKW0w0

"But can't we meet tomorrow?" I asked. "You know, to perfect the dance and all?"copyright protection44PENANAjAAV6I4QwU48Please respect copyright.PENANAWvgRJRaBJ0

"I don't think people will like to meet on a Sunday," said Collins.copyright protection44PENANAyHVqvqVxvV48Please respect copyright.PENANASv0P4ge8h7

"True," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANA3gbRYiVikJ48Please respect copyright.PENANA0GUZ9aJ6bf

"Okay," I said, feeling a48Please respect copyright.PENANA67LnYvf96Y
little disappointed. That meant we had to finish up and perfect the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAaZuaPzr3HI
dance routine today. And I don't know what time we will be done.copyright protection44PENANA7DkHzrqEiW48Please respect copyright.PENANAbHo6GyhpEt

"Okay, we'll leave you guys," said Yang Hyun-suk.copyright protection44PENANAyQEuh9UcHp48Please respect copyright.PENANAFKBr8AWnJ3

After the three had 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmU3Q5SpwW7
left, we went back to what we were doing, waiting for the choreographer 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe8PDfvbwVQ
to show up because he was coming in with some backup dancers.copyright protection44PENANA8KGjCEByXW48Please respect copyright.PENANA0BAB3Ib06V

While we waited, 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4sP7jU0JqX
G-Dragon came over to me, his head hovered over my sight as I still laid48Please respect copyright.PENANAQF5FjkbvR7
down on the floor. I looked up at this face and couldn't make up the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAlRJWsMFEML
expression on his face.copyright protection44PENANAh5zCM94dNm48Please respect copyright.PENANAzQeoYxjYhJ

"Sam, we need to talk," he said, as he looked down on me.copyright protection44PENANA9mcORuYMGF48Please respect copyright.PENANAW8p1OJmZed

He sounded serious and I48Please respect copyright.PENANA7A5QwyCbcp
couldn't say no. I tried not to show that I was scared but I could feel48Please respect copyright.PENANAWLgaaeItdZ
my body tremble. All I did was nod my head.copyright protection44PENANAcOqS82xKAu48Please respect copyright.PENANAd97DbVmxVB

"Let's talk outside," he said and he went ahead of me out of the room.copyright protection44PENANAGSzgumpyAd48Please respect copyright.PENANAL2bQSHovTA

I got up from the floor 48Please respect copyright.PENANAUPma0wpJ0D
and I realised that everyone was looking at me now, obviously wondering 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIdNQRZMdwH
what was going on. I ignored them and none of them asked anything as I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOiKZ8CHx8A
stood up from the floor and walked out of the room.copyright protection44PENANAVJA8ysCwei48Please respect copyright.PENANA72qudr0Da1

I found G-Dragon three 48Please respect copyright.PENANAhTf5J64wjA
doors down the hall, obviously trying to avoid anyone from listening to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAd8SX81APyI
our conversation. I quickly walked up to him with his back facing me. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqGLQaZibDs
stopped a few feet away from him taking extra precaution not to be too 48Please respect copyright.PENANAcUls05y4BS
close.copyright protection44PENANAbq7CifEQZe48Please respect copyright.PENANAFP0yN8zoY8

"I'm here. What do you want to talk about?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAlF6UVBhlaR48Please respect copyright.PENANA6oOSfZSxbv

G-Dragon turned to look at me and I could see he was upset. It was good that I wasn't that close to him in the first place.copyright protection44PENANAz5Bad9CPGQ48Please respect copyright.PENANA0oqmQqrov3

"It's about Zoey," he said.copyright protection44PENANA8ShfuAu8qu48Please respect copyright.PENANAgaTgIGpi4n

I gulped. "Zoey must have told you what happened this morning, didn't she?"copyright protection44PENANAnLauG65Xrg48Please respect copyright.PENANAqbMf41eWzq

"She did," he said as he nodded his head. "What's up with you lately? Didn't we agree that I would tell her everything?"copyright protection44PENANAP1lrbyBOoh48Please respect copyright.PENANAszOSVEjn2O

"Sorry, I just.... I couldn't keep lying anymore."copyright protection44PENANAEw9WLEwgNW48Please respect copyright.PENANArjZkAH1ZZ6

"Really? That's all you can say?"copyright protection44PENANAKaIUEo0Kms48Please respect copyright.PENANAnqhaFlcUiL

"Well, it's the truth. And besides, I never told her that you liked me, because I couldn't bring myself to."copyright protection44PENANA0culDGUeuj48Please respect copyright.PENANAkKl8DgNXEQ

"But you almost had."copyright protection44PENANAw9PG5AkBR748Please respect copyright.PENANAM59LqJsrJs

"Yet I couldn't."copyright protection44PENANAyBhhwWFxH248Please respect copyright.PENANAx7TPhybttt

"Zoey is right. You've 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfNeAWSQJPv
been acting really weird today. Weird enough to tell her the truth when 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzCAIn1sQtc
you know I was supposed to do it."copyright protection44PENANA0Iev4RbY6G48Please respect copyright.PENANAj0kcQBK15e

"Well, you were taking too much time and I couldn't help myself seeing the way how angry you were yesterday and now."copyright protection44PENANAhCP7iVIDxz48Please respect copyright.PENANAvk1KUYCKHs

"And so telling the truth would help solve my anger issue? Or are you jealous of Zoey because she is happy with me?"copyright protection44PENANAK5a2mHZ2fH48Please respect copyright.PENANAgh5Q0sSsjl

I paused before I could say, "what?"copyright protection44PENANA4fpjKtbWsh48Please respect copyright.PENANAFClZOcBzeG

"You heard me loud and 48Please respect copyright.PENANANJ0PuUN7Fv
clear, Sam. As though kissing Daesung wasn't enough, you're now trying 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzVMFMM7Efr
to take matters into your own hands."copyright protection44PENANACJUsRdnzQU48Please respect copyright.PENANAZV3lUSxvsM

Oh no. He knew Daesung and I kissed. I wonder how he found out because I didn't tell anyone about it. Not even Zoey.copyright protection44PENANA8B0jEn0Dqf48Please respect copyright.PENANAcgwc507T7M

"Wait, that's not true," I said.copyright protection44PENANAkuvKOgdZcF48Please respect copyright.PENANApHIcmvZu9e

"Which one? You kissing Daesung or taking matters into your hands?"copyright protection44PENANAhPpbhgpEPg48Please respect copyright.PENANAV99Yu4R2Aj

I now realised that I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPMAlZGl6zs
was stuck. This time I couldn't tell if he was sure that I had kissed 48Please respect copyright.PENANATZ9Cbw7a0h
Daesung or he was trying to test me to see what I would say to prove his48Please respect copyright.PENANApVqzUVEMYe
assumption right. But there was no point in hiding now. The truth was 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6N1G80mt6W
bound to come up sooner rather than later.copyright protection44PENANAzXSAhwXian48Please respect copyright.PENANAW0V6C7CJiD

"Aren't you going to answer? Which one of the two?"copyright protection44PENANAyvS3fGksGw48Please respect copyright.PENANA0HyrhtmVfl

I sighed. "You're being ridiculous, GD."copyright protection44PENANA8Xmx9DNziD48Please respect copyright.PENANA9l8a1hanKh

"But I'm not and you know it." He took a step closer. "Now answer the question. Which one?"copyright protection44PENANAPSBIsSeqap48Please respect copyright.PENANAjHhfOUmrEE

"If you want to hear it, then fine. I did kiss Daesung but it's not what you think."copyright protection44PENANAOIUHMao6D448Please respect copyright.PENANA4FmD6D6tym

G-Dragon took a step 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOIIWSKd38Y
back. "I knew it. You tell me you want nothing to do with me and then 48Please respect copyright.PENANAlsGDHux4Vc
you kiss my best friend who is like a brother to me!"copyright protection44PENANADL1ZjbD7KV48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ0R5DXJKqi

"You wanted the truth, didn't you? You got one! But me backstabbing you wasn't what happened."copyright protection44PENANAKAOmigexHp48Please respect copyright.PENANA6f0PbTzpXH

"Then what did happen?"copyright protection44PENANAWv7RcU1A0F48Please respect copyright.PENANAoi94WQytVu

"All of this is nothing 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGEuxK7vuSW
but a misunderstanding. I never went back on my word. Things just 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMZbMOnGnMD
happened that I myself couldn't control."copyright protection44PENANAEErGDKSgSD48Please respect copyright.PENANA5aVefR5Ol0

"Don't lie to me, Sam."copyright protection44PENANAcCd1Ywid3Z48Please respect copyright.PENANAi1FMzqU4UM

"You know what, I'm 48Please respect copyright.PENANA0GMbtAy9Yl
trying my best here to try and tell you the truth but you're acting like48Please respect copyright.PENANAM3vIiLAnzW
a deaf person blocking my words out. I knew from the very beginning 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoRY4ExuzBp
that I could never be with you nor with Daesung and I have accepted it. I48Please respect copyright.PENANAmB58NzIlIH
talked about that with him yesterday. That's why he kissed me."copyright protection44PENANACZuKRHFTiF48Please respect copyright.PENANAHvKde2YOqx

G-Dragon shook his head. "So you're saying that he kissed you and not that you kissed him?"copyright protection44PENANAyXk0DXKweC48Please respect copyright.PENANALPpJU3goDS

"Yes. But I know you 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOZuT8htQDc
won't believe me. Unlike you, at least Daesung realised and accepted it 48Please respect copyright.PENANAykHixWlvKM
for himself that he and I could never be together."copyright protection44PENANA9rfnseTKrW48Please respect copyright.PENANA3wCsfwwwV9

I looked at G-Dragon and I knew I hit the spot. I just hope that what I said would make him understand.copyright protection44PENANAK4WfPNWuHe48Please respect copyright.PENANAoJ9SDha68N

"The sooner you accept all this, the better it would be for all of us," I said.copyright protection44PENANAafbufPr0mG48Please respect copyright.PENANAiG80ZFWlbH

I turned around to head 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7edKGtgcZc
back for the studio. As I walked away, I realised that I wasn't upset or48Please respect copyright.PENANAmoVvgyMrFU
angry. I was frustrated and my problems were far from over.copyright protection44PENANADv8TSB7Mmz48Please respect copyright.PENANAeXAmYz2UVd

When I came back in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAC2rPN8j3ki
studio, all eyes were on me as soon as I walked in. I could tell on 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfHGbcXKZop
their faces that they had heard the entire conversation.copyright protection44PENANAI6EFlttiXa48Please respect copyright.PENANATDnu0l42gZ

"Sam, are you okay?" Taeyang asked.copyright protection44PENANAw8pICFy4GU48Please respect copyright.PENANAgS2HIPP1Ta

I didn't want to beat around the brush. "No. I'm not."copyright protection44PENANALjpTdiuk4R48Please respect copyright.PENANAk9S0k5Y44n

I came in further into the room and sat down on the floor, not looking at the others.copyright protection44PENANAUNXzsj2VB048Please respect copyright.PENANAuY1Rt1dx4u

"You and G-Dragon were arguing," said Zoey as she came to sit down beside me. "Would like to talk about it?"copyright protection44PENANA688vRLbpPR48Please respect copyright.PENANAxkmA25qR7j

I looked at Zoey. "I'm certainly not the one to tell you what's going on."copyright protection44PENANAjAbJuo2YJ748Please respect copyright.PENANA2rsVsN0qS4

I went back to looking at the floor. My chin rested on my knees and I hugged myself, lost in thought.copyright protection44PENANAPEUNdn6gjI48Please respect copyright.PENANAOm2PewQr3V

I heard the door open 48Please respect copyright.PENANAVBfichoC9v
behind me and I knew G-Dragon had come into the room. At the corner of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWcWp7oc7P4
my eye, I could see Zoey turn towards the door.copyright protection44PENANAhpRqVIb77148Please respect copyright.PENANAbEretFKk6O

"Care to explain to us what's going on?" Mike asked G-Dragon. "You two argued and we could hear you guys down the hall."copyright protection44PENANAZrBab5ze4j48Please respect copyright.PENANAf2qulCMJfV

"It's nothing," I heard G-Dragon say.copyright protection44PENANAlUYgHcEOsX48Please respect copyright.PENANAeb8bAfAMmp

"It's nothing? Looking at both of your faces, something did happen," said TOP.copyright protection44PENANAxKnoai6mpe48Please respect copyright.PENANARy4iNxXyS4

"Look guys," I said as 48Please respect copyright.PENANAn77NCsqobF
quickly stood up from the floor and turned to face them. "Tell me if I'm48Please respect copyright.PENANAkqQsBqHbc4
wrong, but you guys heard the entire conversation, right?"copyright protection44PENANAnpGYzS496848Please respect copyright.PENANAB4DFnqdlY5

No one said anything and they had guilty looks on their faces. That settled it.copyright protection44PENANAts3rJKEnz748Please respect copyright.PENANApmcx9PZzdb

"I'm sorry you had to hear all that," I said as I scratched my head. "We shouldn't have been so loud."copyright protection44PENANAl6RIu21Bor48Please respect copyright.PENANAeyB51cvJoI

"Why didn't you two tell us all this before?" Seungri asked.copyright protection44PENANAQLQwKqpPAw48Please respect copyright.PENANANZMrEaRRvQ

I didn't say anything 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWUc9smYsWc
and neither did G-Dragon. We looked at each other and then at the others48Please respect copyright.PENANADbLfgMsMvQ
who were waiting for either of us to say something.copyright protection44PENANAY3Z1vIL96l48Please respect copyright.PENANAujPhKtrClW

Before anyone could 48Please respect copyright.PENANAthRGrk2pMY
break the silence, the door to the studio opened and the choreographer 48Please respect copyright.PENANACpanEq97cF
came in with some backup dancers and pretending like nothing happened, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXHYMZIgqkB
we went back to practising.copyright protection44PENANAgsr7aWacyy48Please respect copyright.PENANAnNTftkzwKl

I don't know how I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvmLFKq6Uxi
managed to go through the entire dance session without making a mistake.48Please respect copyright.PENANAzu0xhZgxqA
Not after what happened some minutes ago. Now that everyone knows 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8No23SmDp6
what's been going on between G-Dragon and I, it was supposed to affect 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYUtJAdaG8H
me in some way but it didn't. I felt bad, but right now I had to keep my48Please respect copyright.PENANAYHcYftYv1o
head in the real world and not mess things up.copyright protection44PENANAEokuV5VlUv48Please respect copyright.PENANA69cvcfnySN

It was lunch time and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAFRH9BhnLXv
again we took a break. We were almost done with the dance routine but I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAtWcFVr9TXa
was so tired, I wondered if I would be able to meet up with the unknown 48Please respect copyright.PENANAi3kuywKW5D
stranger.copyright protection44PENANARSyQT4zFdG48Please respect copyright.PENANAJLurU6IhSG

Now that we were on a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMmCZ2yrbro
break, no one said anything to each other even after the choreographer 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmJsGe1dYXj
left with the backup dancers. As much as I would have loved to say 48Please respect copyright.PENANACH468YdQf5
something to the others concerning the argument, I couldn't. It was just48Please respect copyright.PENANAx2sa1uIsF9
too awkward for me.copyright protection44PENANA1u8tCjqMvY48Please respect copyright.PENANAR1TjI7kW6h

Zoey cleared her throat first. "Mmmm, so are we going to talk about this or are we going to have lunch?"copyright protection44PENANAl9nFEjLzEF48Please respect copyright.PENANAfIZkP7i3Yy

I looked at Zoey. "You and G-Dragon have a lot to talk about." I then turned to face G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANA4wyDnsHX8V48Please respect copyright.PENANA9vABFB5n3K

"Sam's right, Zoey," said G-Dragon.copyright protection44PENANAD9pMC152NB48Please respect copyright.PENANAxUMrevzysG

Zoey looked a little downcast as though she knew to expect the worst.copyright protection44PENANA19KoOpIzYn48Please respect copyright.PENANAQIoP2eWkhV

"Well, you guys can talk if you want," said Seungri, "but I'm hungry."copyright protection44PENANAf3TOGhhoep48Please respect copyright.PENANATqqt2647u8

"Ya, me too," said Daniel.copyright protection44PENANAkSyJEbLJdz48Please respect copyright.PENANAS23Fuha3QD

"We can order a pizza," said Christine.copyright protection44PENANAkeI5Dxul7s48Please respect copyright.PENANAJGl8wontIF

"Good idea," said Taeyang.copyright protection44PENANAImvCbcTsB748Please respect copyright.PENANAoC6P58V9fq

As though they couldn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAi7slMWDX0t
stay in the room any longer, the others walked out, leaving Zoey, 48Please respect copyright.PENANABKaWTHkga3
G-Dragon and I in the room. I couldn't blame them. There was too much 48Please respect copyright.PENANAVzF1pLakUp
tension going on and I couldn't help to think it was all my fault.copyright protection44PENANARVZqEDBqnP48Please respect copyright.PENANALdxdykacia

A few seconds later, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGTVRQOyb4J
when I knew that the others had gone, I also left the room with my purse48Please respect copyright.PENANAe0jU2IFc2A
and crown without saying a word. Zoey and G-Dragon had a lot of talking48Please respect copyright.PENANACON91mucyM
to do and I would come back for that later. And while the others had 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnfGi6w6EHa
plans for lunch, I had other plans of my own.copyright protection44PENANAZI3HNHfh2m48Please respect copyright.PENANAnWbGQdowpr

As I walked down the empty hall, I called Lee and she picked up immediately.copyright protection44PENANAKLIgnUsgm348Please respect copyright.PENANA61gUbhgFuP

"Hey, Sam, why are you calling?" Lee asked.copyright protection44PENANAoeZnFE1g4p48Please respect copyright.PENANAsR48aaEgOm

"A lot has happened 48Please respect copyright.PENANArciCT8QiFg
today that I need to tell you, Lee," I said, keeping my voice down in 48Please respect copyright.PENANAKLh0FtiW9N
case there were any people snooping around.copyright protection44PENANA5379LUQ0cT48Please respect copyright.PENANALBEQJO0o5P

"What? What's happened?"copyright protection44PENANAnWE6c10Fin48Please respect copyright.PENANAKw239WcZfR

"Everyone now know the truth about G-Dragon and I. They heard us arguing."copyright protection44PENANAJGBI4gm6xr48Please respect copyright.PENANAfZCx0i1jea

I could hear Lee gasp and I pictured her ready to drop and faint. "For real? Oh, gosh, this is bad."copyright protection44PENANAvDuDMgyDhK48Please respect copyright.PENANA60LLQvARUF

"That's not the worst 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGFcJIlFUlU
part," I said as I found myself at the end of the hall going down a 48Please respect copyright.PENANALBUo9UHaeW
flight of stairs. "A weird guy called me today and I need to meet him."copyright protection44PENANAwEGaKTcLyu48Please respect copyright.PENANAlkW75NCGEx

"Huh? What for? Who is this guy?"copyright protection44PENANA8ibK1f0nly48Please respect copyright.PENANAllcx4UTKPf

"Like I said, he is 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEAQzZ0uGaI
weird. Something bad came up and if I don't meet him soon, a lot of us 48Please respect copyright.PENANACv2zD8mgO1
are going to be toast. Especially with the press."copyright protection44PENANAORbjuYA2BS48Please respect copyright.PENANANamZIrUCbJ

"Is he blackmailing you or something?"copyright protection44PENANAN8xtjhnw3W48Please respect copyright.PENANARQkIpjIT0T

"I'm not sure if I can 48Please respect copyright.PENANABCpEc2NziC
call it that. But if I'm affected too, then it kind of looks that way. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAA5MX5voZ7z
Do me a favour and meet me at the back of the building."copyright protection44PENANA0becVfrWDN48Please respect copyright.PENANAJZq3HPnqIn

Lee paused. "Why? You aren't going to meet him, are you?"copyright protection44PENANAusEGM9Emcg48Please respect copyright.PENANAjk0IYcLLL3

"I've no choice and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnm9ajeFHeN
would better do it now because we are going to be here for a while until48Please respect copyright.PENANAhXMI1uxoUg
we are done with the dance routine. Bring me a pair of sunglasses, a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMeAMWyZHkL
cap and a scarf."copyright protection44PENANAeZoMtH3Qd748Please respect copyright.PENANALI7UTr8z9m

"What will you need that for?"copyright protection44PENANANei1qdhSaV48Please respect copyright.PENANAmrk99lDGKy

"Trust me," I said as stopped on the stairs. I wasn't too sure which floor I was on at the moment.copyright protection44PENANAFEnkk9tZwF48Please respect copyright.PENANAWwMxiJ6irq

"Okay, fine. I'll see where I can get those."copyright protection44PENANAfLFDx8lBYz48Please respect copyright.PENANA4c9b62DfBM

"Thanks, Lee. Don't tell anyone."copyright protection44PENANAILO0Nfe57o48Please respect copyright.PENANACYdW7mhL32

I cut the call and this 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkZy6wRQD9h
time, I ran down the stairs with a new found energy. I was tired from 48Please respect copyright.PENANA3dtdpAf3PR
all the dancing but I had some reasonable ounce of energy left in me.copyright protection44PENANA0N3o7oyBn448Please respect copyright.PENANAPrP3oXpGIs

I reached the bottom of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAI2sg9Z7ZCh
the steps. I had reached the ground floor. There was a passage behind 48Please respect copyright.PENANAgGvKTVk9Ya
the stairs which lead to a door. The back door, I presume. And in front 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1NBQQ0OgGx
of me was a short passage which lead to the lobby. I could hear a few 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJozbEJbMIN
voices that I could recognise.copyright protection44PENANAhCQWgn4CY348Please respect copyright.PENANA4ZuzKnu4xt

I went over to look, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfygRp7Rdox
making sure I had my back against the wall. I took a peek and I saw The 48Please respect copyright.PENANAK7VkjA3umM
Toxins and Big Bang in the lobby heading out. Looked like they were 48Please respect copyright.PENANAiqMM0wavBI
going out for lunch instead of ordering it from here. Before I could 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYQgfHGmyTL
turn around and head for the back door, I ended up hearing their 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6ES1YcB2GY
conversation.copyright protection44PENANAbHP0HDfWIn48Please respect copyright.PENANAPZpBMp7WUJ

"I wish Sam could have told me what was going on," said Christine.copyright protection44PENANAlJap7hNGSa48Please respect copyright.PENANAFSzW8hCuQw

"How could we have known?" Daesung asked. "Sam and I just talked about it yesterday, but she never mentioned G-Dragon."copyright protection44PENANAKaNB63YbFX48Please respect copyright.PENANAgWa8Y9kAb1

"I'm just surprised that48Please respect copyright.PENANAy00YBMoJJi
you kissed my sister," said Mike. For some reason, I was surprised that48Please respect copyright.PENANAtpb3ljkXOb
he wasn't upset like I thought he would.copyright protection44PENANAeRE4RmH7iq48Please respect copyright.PENANAt48Ed6NyGY

"Well, whatever she did that for," said Taeyang, "she will tell us eventually."copyright protection44PENANAuE9E3hWQXO48Please respect copyright.PENANAAfZBeBoCk7

"Should we go back for her and see if she would come with us for lunch?" TOP asked.copyright protection44PENANA1IZOj5Sigx48Please respect copyright.PENANAVOx6RSqcQf

"No, I bet she wants to be alone for a while," said Seungri.copyright protection44PENANAfvpTAhfhoy48Please respect copyright.PENANAnjkvYyCL6j

"I think so too," said 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJHzJiNkGpF
Daniel. "But just in case, we would order her and the others a takeout. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOktlrkdSw3
Sometimes Sam would starve herself without even realising it."copyright protection44PENANAHSdRxg8t7648Please respect copyright.PENANA8Unspl0267

The next thing I knew, their voices became distant. I peeked again and I saw that they had already walked out of the lobby.copyright protection44PENANAi8PhW9mOrD48Please respect copyright.PENANAlQPUz7HUN7

I was expecting them to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzBr3XTnaMU
be mad and all, but they didn't seem like they were. Maybe they were 48Please respect copyright.PENANAeUOCmeXnh4
just hiding it and they would throw all of their anger on me later on. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAvCVkwurepf
Who knows?copyright protection44PENANAmH9MBJ3R1r48Please respect copyright.PENANAlYRN2OHpZt

Throwing that thought 48Please respect copyright.PENANAken9QKoN8F
out of my head, I quickly went back down the hall, heading for the back 48Please respect copyright.PENANARDhMYOhp3H
door. I hope it wasn't locked. I swung the door and it opened. Lucky me.48Please respect copyright.PENANAFoFwcHlT7k
Now I had to wait for Lee to show up.copyright protection44PENANApIkDARTJl048Please respect copyright.PENANAnsyKBpvZcD

There were still more 48Please respect copyright.PENANAF4hWRfL9FO
vehicles parked at the back of the building. Some of which were delivery48Please respect copyright.PENANAQkdwRpecjl
trucks. I waited for Lee on the slab with my back leaning against the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxGO6rpvWpI
wall. I could hear the sound of the vehicle's engine coming from the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAA4MR1D6MML
front and I knew the others were leaving until I heard the noise fade 48Please respect copyright.PENANABD6O9Xdn9x
away.copyright protection44PENANAPD9FU6PhVh48Please respect copyright.PENANAJHdxNEXjBn

In what seemed like 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1bsO3tr9ge
forever, Lee appeared around the corner of the building with her 48Please respect copyright.PENANAVRS1G1YUo8
handbag. When she spotted me, she quickened her steps.copyright protection44PENANAVhY53zP7rQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAr8QEFEjDXU

"It's about time," I said with my arms folded.copyright protection44PENANAyQzTt9LnS648Please respect copyright.PENANA0Z6sN9Wfjd

"Don't act all grumpy on me," said Lee. "So as to let you know, finding what you wanted wasn't all that easy."copyright protection44PENANAoIKxoFDdXy48Please respect copyright.PENANAuf4mhLnfFM

"Okay, thanks," I said as Lee gave me her bag and I gave her my crown and purse to hold. "Hold this."copyright protection44PENANAuSQtYU3N1u48Please respect copyright.PENANAo6UeLAT4eQ

"Oh, wow!" Lee marvelled as she looked at my crown. "Who gave this to you?"copyright protection44PENANADAldtPmfdf48Please respect copyright.PENANAZfQ5HDfESz

"Seungri," I answered as I rummaged through the bag to get the items out.copyright protection44PENANAlBX68lLMzI48Please respect copyright.PENANARmPWJ6H6mm

"This is so pretty. These diamonds look so real."copyright protection44PENANAl4Bbyz5Bn748Please respect copyright.PENANATLtN0eoTjD

"They are," I said as I put the blue baseball cap on.copyright protection44PENANA61HsebiBqv48Please respect copyright.PENANAJiSAoAdEe6

"So sweet of him to do this," said Lee. She looked at me. "Are they all still inside?"copyright protection44PENANAQM6NSf9D2J48Please respect copyright.PENANAd5t32c9Jiv

"They have gone out for 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6cgA0gOoa7
lunch. But Zoey and G-Dragon are talking in the studio. Hopefully things48Please respect copyright.PENANA1UqTuOtHsI
will work out okay. Though I highly doubt it."copyright protection44PENANAlnNXzlwFXT48Please respect copyright.PENANANGOgJQtTAM

"Things are really bad, huh?" Lee asked with a sad expression on her face.copyright protection44PENANAM3Utw9FOK548Please respect copyright.PENANApHYFhYW6n6

"Ya. And they are about 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdo0EiusMcV
to get a whole lot worse. Wish me luck." I put on the sunglasses and the48Please respect copyright.PENANAu0Bjhl9KeK
light scarf around my neck. Lee gave me back my purse.copyright protection44PENANAjASqoKGxoI48Please respect copyright.PENANAwDrujIsgPP

"Okay. Tell me how everything goes," said Lee. "Want me to escort you out of the gate?"copyright protection44PENANAgK64HFpdkm48Please respect copyright.PENANAn2enHxS9j4

"Ya, that will be a good48Please respect copyright.PENANA4O5G7m1h6g
idea," I said. "Leaving me alone would be dangerous and who knows what 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1CUs7ebAu0
the guards might think when they see me."copyright protection44PENANA77q2BWbgLW48Please respect copyright.PENANAqR3EfKc8Uv

Lee and I started to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdYkiFsEHKK
walk and we turned around the corner finding ourselves back at the front48Please respect copyright.PENANAXLnSev6p5B
parking lot. As we were heading towards the gate, Lee started some 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqvtuaJemR8
random conversation and I played along making sure not to look 48Please respect copyright.PENANAS47dmMF0tp
suspicious in front of the guards who didn't seem to be paying much 48Please respect copyright.PENANALrb9kpErPK
attention. I made sure that they didn't notice my face.copyright protection44PENANAm4wevUYcsn48Please respect copyright.PENANA2ggwKqfYN7

When I finally managed 48Please respect copyright.PENANA7FbfSy2yzw
to get out of the gate, Lee wished me luck. I nodded my head and walked 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYlY9uiz9Jo
away from the YG gate and down the street.copyright protection44PENANAVJ71OOHd2248Please respect copyright.PENANAUMEajpAznn

I had to admit, I was so48Please respect copyright.PENANAGv3RLWqNuZ
scared. For one reason, I had no idea where I was going since I hadn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkskiCPBbYl
fully known the place and this was the first time I had to walk around 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzS8e3rDD11
in the streets by myself. Going around alone was too dangerous for me 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1Hx4zi1Z6v
and I was crazy to think I would manage on my own.copyright protection44PENANAAa91cKXo0J48Please respect copyright.PENANAYrYjKA8lL7

After walking a few 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHlZPA2hdGi
blocks away from YG, I reached the crosswords and I stopped at the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfI0MNz5Oyc
traffic walking sign. I looked around and so far, no one had recognised 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjxEhRoSZJD
me under my little disguise. When the robot indicated 'walk' I crossed 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6qY6gy9xMP
the road with a few people and got to the other side of the street.copyright protection44PENANAknNRBjMAvf48Please respect copyright.PENANAQ2yQPlpV9Y

As I walked, passing a shoe shop, I took my phone out from my purse and called the unknown man.copyright protection44PENANAXqZ4sNS90V48Please respect copyright.PENANA7twMLnaDmU

"Ah, you finally called," said the stranger who had answered after the first ring. "I've been waiting."copyright protection44PENANAbB5lCi6AH648Please respect copyright.PENANAhtlgzBPI9B

"Ya, I figured," I said,48Please respect copyright.PENANAyZD6PssfnB
looking around hoping that no one noticed me but the cap hid my face 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdv5KiR7suu
pretty well. "I've no idea where to meet you and I'm not so familiar 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmMYI2xjRgs
with the place."copyright protection44PENANAj1u7T5rFFW48Please respect copyright.PENANAsOs6VhznxX

"Not to worry, dear. I already see you. Nice disguise by the way. I can hardly tell it is you under that baseball cap."copyright protection44PENANAVCnUGPHzZI48Please respect copyright.PENANAZLt4vLVDeq

I froze as I soon looked48Please respect copyright.PENANA8Bc6jfED6U
left and right and across the street hoping to see him. But I couldn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6zJyFEQf1n
spot out any French native among the midst of Koreans. Feeling a little 48Please respect copyright.PENANAd08G5Es1iG
out of place, I figured I might just be the odd one around here too.copyright protection44PENANAvbkAwWTCxA48Please respect copyright.PENANAsqhExAUbe0

I heard him laugh 48Please respect copyright.PENANA5kzPSftJvv
through the phone and I could tell he was making fun of me. "Not to 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6IwfoBUQDc
worry, Sam. Be careful or you might just blow your cover."copyright protection44PENANAJQCdYvjpbY48Please respect copyright.PENANAx5COKapElD

I gritted my teeth. "Just show yourself. Where are you?"copyright protection44PENANAm6BJ1izISy48Please respect copyright.PENANAErYegQtKzY

"I'm right here."copyright protection44PENANArnJLXgIRTf48Please respect copyright.PENANAfGHLV5nPW0

"Right where?" I looked around and still nothing. People walked past me and I got frustrated. "Don't try play games with-"copyright protection44PENANArC63Q5z9uK48Please respect copyright.PENANA2t5EiPPIta

My sentence was cut 48Please respect copyright.PENANAm7CkmTaPDK
short when down the road, a fancy black shiny Bugatti parked at the edge48Please respect copyright.PENANAOSqvEmB1cy
of the concrete slab right in front of me. I looked on with my mouth 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1e27TkWI3q
agape. I always admired fancy cars but this was one hell of a ride.copyright protection44PENANA8QRJAS29BU48Please respect copyright.PENANATpywKUpVJ2

A smartly dressed 48Please respect copyright.PENANAFyV63AtFBG
looking chauffeur came out of the driver's seat and came to my side. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdDUfKOAHxD
With his white gloved hand, he opened the door to the passengers seat.copyright protection44PENANAI2hsNfIw6B48Please respect copyright.PENANA7r3FXNzmJj

"You may go in, mademoiselle," said the driver in deep French accent, as he bowed.copyright protection44PENANALxeSB5Xaer48Please respect copyright.PENANApoRkvVVYBw

At first I was dumbfounded and I didn't know whether to run and head back to YG, or just go in and get this over with.copyright protection44PENANAUniL6TE83f48Please respect copyright.PENANAFOaz4VoECW

A few heads turned my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAiJnmpkaYHT
way and I could only imagine what people must think of a Bugatti and a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAi6i9rN5mMG
smartly dressed chauffeur waiting for me to go in. Strange, I suppose 48Please respect copyright.PENANATrv31zZqeB
and a little suspicious too.copyright protection44PENANA2Lhkd5zVBF48Please respect copyright.PENANAmwlJTL43JM

I managed to awake from 48Please respect copyright.PENANAW2Sfbk2hGP
my slumber and got in the car before people fully start to look at me 48Please respect copyright.PENANAYAgtDi2DIg
and figure out who I was. As I got in, a nice car smell wafted in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe4NAOGlTJ5
air and into my nostrils. The chauffeur closed the door and went to the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAFG7yVjSYAz
driver's seat.copyright protection44PENANAxndLfOQcY548Please respect copyright.PENANANy941Nn4q5

"Samantha Glasson, nice to finally meet you at last," came a deep voice.copyright protection44PENANAETsXFzQjIT48Please respect copyright.PENANAkFa7fZOBSy

With my eyes, I looked 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGyfN6b6Z9H
at the person sitting right beside me in the passenger's seat. For a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAyXfI2hvplW
moment, I was scared. But when I looked at the man fully, my face fell.copyright protection44PENANAzLEQ6SWFOy48Please respect copyright.PENANAvGBFORFCsy

He looked to be in the same age group as me but maybe two years older. I guessed in my head that he must be 24 or 25.copyright protection44PENANAllWz7bnYom48Please respect copyright.PENANAa86qWdB2dL

He had gorgeous blue 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJMJZuLg0bC
eyes like the colour of the sea and brown short curly hair. His dashing 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXGiym6p2JS
lips were lifted up into a smile and under that navy blue suit of his, I48Please respect copyright.PENANAAU0HkWVVZ8
could tell he was one who had one heck of a body.copyright protection44PENANA42fxZU7QeP48Please respect copyright.PENANAGJUpIpbYqn

I hadn't said a word and48Please respect copyright.PENANABn4TVr0ltJ
the car started to drive down the road when the young man offered his 48Please respect copyright.PENANAe3DfLXbGTb
open hand. I stared at it and noticed a shiny gold Rolex on his left 48Please respect copyright.PENANAPAUK0C9bBA
wrist. Who was this guy?copyright protection44PENANAJNBoEHhAn548Please respect copyright.PENANAzcXD6T46fx

"Aren't we going to shake hands?" he asked.copyright protection44PENANA9Ir5hyhFxF48Please respect copyright.PENANAPtBtImrU3k

I opened my mouth but 48Please respect copyright.PENANA5SV0CVCM7e
then closed it again knowing that it was pointless to argue. I took his 48Please respect copyright.PENANAmGqkjxdnDt
hand and shook it, scared that I might receive a shocking zap from the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAVtXwXFToAW
contact.copyright protection44PENANA1BIg9Hbgyp48Please respect copyright.PENANAJGPEGsAieH

"And you must be the guy I was talking to over the phone?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANA5icHHQoYrM48Please respect copyright.PENANAxBoYWIva59

"Yes, a pleasure to meet48Please respect copyright.PENANAD1CBxAgrYR
your acquaintance." He lightly pressed his lips on the back of my palm 48Please respect copyright.PENANAoIxdndGYwV
and I blushed as I slowly withdrew my hand.copyright protection44PENANA3BuuGM3YrB48Please respect copyright.PENANAG4w42tMxDS

"I'm sorry we had to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHhTkSrU9TT
meet under such awkward circumstances," he said as he leaned back in the48Please respect copyright.PENANA0hByvZMbXj
fancy leathered seats. "But I needed to talk to you, and fast."copyright protection44PENANADsdlJm3UCB48Please respect copyright.PENANA6DnDIq6uYK

I looked at him and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnF1gZUIT3B
realised that all his was just too surreal. This wasn't what I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAM4SoDnopzm
expecting. I was expecting a man much older than me and rafia looking. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAJFZ6iIwocv
This guy right beside me looked like one of those handsome Greek gods we48Please respect copyright.PENANA9AaaQ95z39
hear about in mythical tales.copyright protection44PENANAjITwpAnOzP48Please respect copyright.PENANAaQd3fQrDg0

"Why are you looking at me like that?" he asked with the corner of his lips raised up to a smile.copyright protection44PENANAACq577Sb5j48Please respect copyright.PENANAZZFZ6YHDnU

"I...uh." Yikes! I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8wuiHlsMUv
caught looking at him. I blushed and turned to face the window beside 48Please respect copyright.PENANAV5m88BZAeg
me. "Nothing. This wasn't what I was expecting."copyright protection44PENANANIM04wm7qY48Please respect copyright.PENANAAeggemeV0B

There was silence and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQ97lrOGUAB
didn't want to look at him. He was obviously looking at me and that made48Please respect copyright.PENANAqwGMFPnFpC
me play around with my fingers because I was nervous. Then I realised 48Please respect copyright.PENANAV0Rbg5yv1y
something.copyright protection44PENANAIKGCh6dEVM48Please respect copyright.PENANA6RHec92T4D

"You never told me your name," I said as I looked at him. Dang it! I wasn't supposed to look at him.copyright protection44PENANAtwpUBx1tJ748Please respect copyright.PENANAuuabhP0Euq

"Oh, silly me. Where are my manners? I'm Derrick."copyright protection44PENANANwPAwU6S1x48Please respect copyright.PENANAhqq9CHeacf

"That's a weird name, given that you're French."copyright protection44PENANARKiynzEAez48Please respect copyright.PENANAJj7rxkBAdF

"I was born in the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAeIaoTreU6I
States and my parents preferred giving me this name even though they are48Please respect copyright.PENANAko9LxLtMVF
both French. I mostly grew up in France and my parents are people who 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1FZ96wtI6H

what's so important to them."copyright protection44PENANAnI6MCHjEb348Please respect copyright.PENANAGxvPi3ALPw

"I can clearly see that," I said as I wondrously looked around in the car.copyright protection44PENANALZzAz5vGYw48Please respect copyright.PENANArRbq0iWu03

My expression might have amused him because he chuckled. I blushed as I pushed my glasses further up my nose and folded my arms.copyright protection44PENANAdPhwnE62ek48Please respect copyright.PENANAbooAX8SY65

"This is going to be fun," he said to himself.copyright protection44PENANACC2IoEpIiB48Please respect copyright.PENANA5NCBCUEdGu

I changed the topic. "About the photo, why did you want to see me?"copyright protection44PENANAL4AkEaq9Qo48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ7lVxmeuQe

"Can we talk about this over lunch?"copyright protection44PENANAG4dXABBGDQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAy1DXBB6uzc

"Yes, lunch."copyright protection44PENANAYl5yGKJ6Uz48Please respect copyright.PENANAoAUKvr6JWX

A moment ago, I wasn't in the mood for lunch. But now that he mentioned it, I was starving.copyright protection44PENANAvBDJyekaUX48Please respect copyright.PENANAYuYCrAdx5M

"Lunch sounds good. But not in the open. I don't want to grab any attention."copyright protection44PENANA1VctZ9lHwV48Please respect copyright.PENANAKErKQHmXCc

"Of course. I figured you would want that. Given that no one knows where you are anyway."copyright protection44PENANAJvgO4XyN4t48Please respect copyright.PENANAJ1MDLi5S21

I raised an eyebrow at 48Please respect copyright.PENANAP1wOEXoRvt
him. "You've been following me the whole time, haven't you? That's how 48Please respect copyright.PENANAEf860ZOmWq
you have been able to find me on the street."copyright protection44PENANAmz40iDeCN848Please respect copyright.PENANAzFrmjdFo5H

He gave me that dashing 48Please respect copyright.PENANAqVJWJnU7fp
smile of his. "Of course. I just had to. I knew sooner or later that we 48Please respect copyright.PENANABUFK0FJO2F
would meet. I had to come prepared."copyright protection44PENANAAO4Mi3WDLt48Please respect copyright.PENANAeClGYETD2Z

"That's sounds creepy if you ask me," I said as looked out the window. "So, where are we going?"copyright protection44PENANAzuYPi2NRPR48Please respect copyright.PENANAltU4pEsjMH

"My apartment. It's much safer there."copyright protection44PENANAlcrpcK2rnQ48Please respect copyright.PENANAInBo8B4Rq6

"Oh." I couldn't help but feel embarrassed.copyright protection44PENANAiMbfVcw60E48Please respect copyright.PENANAs5uuffV4sF

"Here we are now," said Derrick as he looked out of the car window on his side and followed suit.copyright protection44PENANA7F8lM1LEXD48Please respect copyright.PENANAFn9DT1K1XJ

It was a huge apartment 48Please respect copyright.PENANAA0eOMBofue
building kind of like the ones famous people live in. The car took a 48Please respect copyright.PENANA3WjxqzMlDf
turn and went down the road to an underground parking lot.copyright protection44PENANASK54bb1BZE48Please respect copyright.PENANA1iCbWwcHya

After the car parked, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAq8bEXYfmdJ
the chauffeur quickly came out and opened the car door on Derrick's 48Please respect copyright.PENANABhFVO5uBr8
side. Derrick came out and I followed. Before I could step out of the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAQsqsDnYQ4x
car, Derrick held out his hand to help me out. I took his hand and I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA1uGc9Dao0o
came out of the car.copyright protection44PENANACiqOym04s048Please respect copyright.PENANA8CFOxtU15l

Derrick lead the way, 48Please respect copyright.PENANAaVOAosYnj2
still holding my hand, to the elevator and the chauffeur stayed behind 48Please respect copyright.PENANAUkxAwGeH5e
with the car as he watched us go. I couldn't help but feel that the 48Please respect copyright.PENANA6eQL2ofXqk
chauffeur had been smiling at us from the time we got out of the car.copyright protection44PENANAJAGRVtTH8Q48Please respect copyright.PENANAiAg7aEA81T

Derrick pressed the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAbWdJwKqLsw
elevator button and when they drew open, we stepped in at the same time.48Please respect copyright.PENANA0yKRjNfzKF
When the door closed, I withdrew my hand from his. He pressed the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAT3faaqOKzQ
button to his floor and I felt the elevator move.copyright protection44PENANAk0Ap5MA7nA48Please respect copyright.PENANAEKNRujCU54

"So, about that photo, I need to know what's going on," I said as stared at the floor.copyright protection44PENANAL0ScOryPv048Please respect copyright.PENANAq5CaWWYcvI

"What do you want to know?" Derrick asked. I could feel his eyes on me.copyright protection44PENANAQeAw6w0Zd848Please respect copyright.PENANARpM7zXxoI7

"Everything," I said as I looked at him. "But one thing I don't get is why you're involving me in all this."copyright protection44PENANAQy9rXfdymB48Please respect copyright.PENANAfmS2emmQgr

"But don't you want to know what's going on?"copyright protection44PENANA98B2kqtSfZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAVGwyQtuPG0

"Well, ya, I do! You're 48Please respect copyright.PENANAxxqkF0hdpZ
the one who sent me the photo so I'm curious. Do you know what? It was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkElcGzy2qO
best you didn't send it to me in the first place."copyright protection44PENANAT5euCl0Cke48Please respect copyright.PENANAtlu0Tluoaa

"Maybe then I wouldn't be here."copyright protection44PENANAqtF2wZs0SH48Please respect copyright.PENANAjVTE7AeGCE

The elevator doors flew 48Please respect copyright.PENANAv6Z07TmBhw
open and in front of me was a lavishly looking hall. The white painted 48Please respect copyright.PENANAMHfvxiTnCu
hall and the bright lighting above made the hall look angelic that if 48Please respect copyright.PENANADVpxAx7OdK
you were to see it for yourself, you would think you had just stepped 48Please respect copyright.PENANAsJQsJYl5AD
into heaven.copyright protection44PENANAZLNdgpyh2T48Please respect copyright.PENANACmkRSSaLgN

I stepped out of the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAfTIFridy6q
elevator and beautiful paintings lined up the walls. I noticed that the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAiz991T7mYH
doors leading to other people's apartments were white doors with fancy 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZA4ksWcCHs
looking gold plated handles. The floor of the hall was covered with a 48Please respect copyright.PENANApXm8DNrQmy
soft red carpet.copyright protection44PENANAvN4iIG3Twn48Please respect copyright.PENANAhF7qP8kWvi

"This place looks nice," I said as I walked down the hall.copyright protection44PENANArXR6Zn6rnZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAEvSIPkF2Xn

"I know," said Derrick as he came up behind me. "My apartment is the door at the end of the hall."copyright protection44PENANA9nLWB1lain48Please respect copyright.PENANAvnlRvYFWO2

I looked down the hall 48Please respect copyright.PENANAu5HCwwKQtg
and there stood two huge white doors. I walked up to it and just as I 48Please respect copyright.PENANA87L1QBlwDi
was about to turn and look at Derrick, the right door flew open and in 48Please respect copyright.PENANAT9Fe1bdG81
front of me stood a smartly dressed butler. It's like he knew I was 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIC6qfDXZtq
coming.copyright protection44PENANA4Ob87UPbNl48Please respect copyright.PENANAgCy1DoCZVg

"Welcome, mademoiselle," said the butler as he stepped aside and and with his hand, he gestured to come in.copyright protection44PENANAzejqliOsKc48Please respect copyright.PENANAiOpY3q9g7h

For a moment, I hesitated. Until I felt Derrick behind me.copyright protection44PENANArUAcQbdcmw48Please respect copyright.PENANAiQUpg92d9w

"Ladies first," said Derrick.copyright protection44PENANAAqlMzsGpEu48Please respect copyright.PENANAEp8crMB3Lw

I gulped and took a step into his apartment.copyright protection44PENANAKdJ3E4msx648Please respect copyright.PENANAj3lI1o9aFg

nice," I said when I looked around the foyer and I when turned round the48Please respect copyright.PENANAVf63rxQ2BB
corner, there was lavishly looking sitting room with creamed coloured 48Please respect copyright.PENANAzVEUEGjNRZ
sofas with a glass coffee table and I huge smart screen TV pinned on the48Please respect copyright.PENANA4jWaGjxdI8
wall.copyright protection44PENANAFY0faRro4N48Please respect copyright.PENANAUDo1HPzxSa

I looked to the other 48Please respect copyright.PENANA8r6NmKtGyk
side and there was a fancy looking table with a beautuful chandelier 48Please respect copyright.PENANAFCEBMkUkyD
above it. Beautiful artistic pictures filled the place and there were 48Please respect copyright.PENANAttgRuXH4uz
beautiful flower vases with orchids.copyright protection44PENANAUEegqNI6cn48Please respect copyright.PENANAfD1lqo6T4E

"I see you like 48Please respect copyright.PENANAeJgSl3dgoL
orchids," I said as I went over to the flower vase close to the sitting 48Please respect copyright.PENANATSf9KK6rOB
area and looked at the orchids. They were fresh and lovely.copyright protection44PENANABXAk1fpnIW48Please respect copyright.PENANA13e3pFrvyw

"I know you like roses," said Derrick as he stared at me.copyright protection44PENANAunUvD5n4tr48Please respect copyright.PENANAaNfqFAuSQS

"Almost everything that celebrities like and don't like are always found on the internet." I rolled my eyes at him.copyright protection44PENANASo56EwTnD648Please respect copyright.PENANAEJKTTuD0Ws

"True, but I can tell what a woman likes and doesn't."copyright protection44PENANAKe3ly4AYsi48Please respect copyright.PENANABYwQ1Vvtr4

I gave him a smile that showed how impressed I was.copyright protection44PENANAUXGPtjUQoo48Please respect copyright.PENANAZBRe2xPwpG

"Lunch is ready, sir," said the butler. "Should I serve the food?"copyright protection44PENANAhgMmmrSgOv48Please respect copyright.PENANAp3qaXjFAkB

"Yes, please," sad Derrick.copyright protection44PENANAmyKpUiuugX48Please respect copyright.PENANA3VzzMBuh4W

The butler bowed and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAm3xeiAL86a
left for the kitchen. I continued to look around and I went over by the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOwefGbzlMT
windows to look down at the city below. We were so high above the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAXQPxpC8UUd
ground.copyright protection44PENANANbUu0nNVdc48Please respect copyright.PENANAQggouzYfH5

"Is it just me or are we on the last floor of this building?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANAjus5RPwK5l48Please respect copyright.PENANAqwBFLiRlED

"We are," said Derrick who came to join me by the window. "This place is lovely, isn't it?"copyright protection44PENANAgrU0QOiljz48Please respect copyright.PENANAfCt4aTGiNA

"Ya, it surly is." I knew he meant Seoul.copyright protection44PENANAi7LcBLApGN48Please respect copyright.PENANAwDRN2lm0B4

"Food is ready, Master Derrick," came the butler behind us.copyright protection44PENANABZi45aTCUY48Please respect copyright.PENANA62AIHm1yIF

"Shall we?" Derrick gestured his hand towards the dining table and I walked up to it with him following behind me.copyright protection44PENANAXapRagGtBZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAcXiG1szILn

As we got to the dining 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjh1b43xq48
table, Derrick pushed back a chair for me and I took my seat, removing 48Please respect copyright.PENANAuab5SSsTra
my glasses and cap putting the glasses in my purse. I said thank you and48Please respect copyright.PENANAzE7Rk9jUS4
he sat at the head of the table right next to mine.copyright protection44PENANA3T6O6HAG7g48Please respect copyright.PENANAhbmimqlURp

The butler had served 48Please respect copyright.PENANA2mAert7Uny
our plates on the table and just by looking at the cutlery and napkins 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4WcbOxl8sd
laid and folded neatly, I couldn't help but feel I was in some kind of 48Please respect copyright.PENANAdJpz2MZoGR
fancy fairytale. The table was set to perfection and the wine glasses 48Please respect copyright.PENANAOJdpXFS4zf
next to the plates were spotless.copyright protection44PENANAuIgNMmXGYR48Please respect copyright.PENANADDcQP1na9Q

Dishes of food were 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnmANWCzW1f
lined in the middle of the table and my mouth couldn't help but water. 48Please respect copyright.PENANANPY0eWF71f
If I wasn't in such an elegant apartment, I would have just dug in and 48Please respect copyright.PENANAnESzuHASSK
started to eat. I was really hungry. But for now, I had to act like a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIg6i32VCYW
lady.copyright protection44PENANAEW24OckuGW48Please respect copyright.PENANASMMRM1Ns8O

The butler helped to 48Please respect copyright.PENANAHvtA5XiFQa
serve the food and I didn't hesitate eating right there and then. I made48Please respect copyright.PENANApyqwQuzM7y
sure not to eat too much and take my time.copyright protection44PENANAuJPAxWi7Cq48Please respect copyright.PENANAIZkuR7vFAE

"This was really good," I said, after I was done with my food.copyright protection44PENANAo68FTV1RB048Please respect copyright.PENANAuhaXSfVaVL

"France's finest traditional dishes," said Derrick with a smile.copyright protection44PENANAIgWKkKXFfE48Please respect copyright.PENANAlkjMRagqWn

"Now, about the issue at48Please respect copyright.PENANAZFmj9drFT1
hand," I said, wiping the corner of my mouth with a napkin as the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAknjukbJflE
butler came to take away my plate and also Derrick's.copyright protection44PENANABJnrkVnD3Z48Please respect copyright.PENANA0GZksRuJhr

"Let's talk then," said Derrick.copyright protection44PENANA3s6b7078RJ48Please respect copyright.PENANA6h6tAgH1WA

"First of all, I need to know why you sent it to me."copyright protection44PENANA8AZ5lkQiZ548Please respect copyright.PENANA3gXmLhxuxT

"Because as much as you don't want to get involved, it concerns you more than you can ever imagine."copyright protection44PENANAWAPk29gpNj48Please respect copyright.PENANA9yz9S20nLi

I shook my head as I got my purse and removed my phone. I went to the gallery and checked out the photo.copyright protection44PENANApQLw2Sw91o48Please respect copyright.PENANAPSzVlac3c8

"How does this have to do with me?" I asked as I showed him the photo.copyright protection44PENANASaYSfjc5Cb48Please respect copyright.PENANADfoAB9S9Ep

The photo showed Zoey in48Please respect copyright.PENANA2OYCYQEZeq
a some place that looked like a garden or a park and in front of her 48Please respect copyright.PENANAi3jSYE2aHf
stood a man I couldn't recognise. His face was hidden because his back 48Please respect copyright.PENANAjluHV6ROfw
faced the camera and whoever had taken the photo, took it behind some 48Please respect copyright.PENANAehlcTj2yjh
bushes so it was hard to make out who he was. But there was something 48Please respect copyright.PENANAZBkitiXwtF
completely odd about what I saw in the photo.copyright protection44PENANAbzM0UOaaeX48Please respect copyright.PENANALM0guWmmLC

"I know this isn't 48Please respect copyright.PENANASZUecOxfmQ
really supposed to concern me," I said as Derrick looked at the photo 48Please respect copyright.PENANAwmsQEV9CrC
and then back at me. "Who was Zoey with?"copyright protection44PENANAtDNf9Q8FZ948Please respect copyright.PENANAhcpisUfPg0

"That's my brother," Derrick answered.copyright protection44PENANA4Sj2LzmXFZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAr90mncaVrw

Now that was a surprise. Derrick had a brother?copyright protection44PENANA8QzVRtJ2DX48Please respect copyright.PENANAMXSeNx9W9B

"Wait? Brother?" I raised an eyebrow.copyright protection44PENANA07BOmKEuqE48Please respect copyright.PENANAzrOZJgTY6a

"Sadly, yes," said Derrick clearing his throat.copyright protection44PENANAEuwYxhxUfc48Please respect copyright.PENANAZxkZTIb3DC

I looked at the photo 48Please respect copyright.PENANAAqztEn1Okb
again. "So, you're saying that, this happened the time Zoey went to 48Please respect copyright.PENANApTCdSmuMlA
Paris with G-Dragon and the others? And this person in the photo is your48Please respect copyright.PENANAXk8hj20v6D
brother?"copyright protection44PENANAUo3tjVX3YB48Please respect copyright.PENANA7G3HaI5cwp

I still couldn't believe it when Derrick nodded his head at me.copyright protection44PENANA1YICM5nqAO48Please respect copyright.PENANAnWjZ9bmEYH

"You never told me you had a brother," I said, looking at Derrick.copyright protection44PENANA5fjCdRUKL948Please respect copyright.PENANAeV1mdlpeQv

"We don't really get along," said Derrick.copyright protection44PENANAXGx19RW7UU48Please respect copyright.PENANARYcVGmEMya

"That figures," I said as I rolled my eyes. "Why don't you two get along?"copyright protection44PENANAIWTrzFxW6848Please respect copyright.PENANAbW6uVgGhUF

"We have been different from each other since we were kids. You can't even tell that he and I are brothers."copyright protection44PENANAKbn4NAVHlG48Please respect copyright.PENANAZ9B1wOmV2d

"So, what's do you think he wants with Zoey?"copyright protection44PENANARjmokwfhEa48Please respect copyright.PENANAqUcCQTZuFy

"I have no idea but I know it's something serious."copyright protection44PENANAcm65OFLlCR48Please respect copyright.PENANAFQuMlq31IY

"So, you're just assuming all this or what?"copyright protection44PENANAtn3RrRrmzN48Please respect copyright.PENANAGH7hIE65z9

"I know my brother very 48Please respect copyright.PENANAj04wDVpCq5
well. I know something is going on between the two of them. I had my 48Please respect copyright.PENANAb5WGSh6VjP
suspicions during the Chanel fashion show."copyright protection44PENANA3q6qPqX5IB48Please respect copyright.PENANAT0x1igFplf

I then remembered the 48Please respect copyright.PENANAyFfDbSzBvZ
time Zoey came back to Korea the following day after the fashion show. 48Please respect copyright.PENANAGH5CnXUuSd
She was acting all weird and the way she had hugged me surprised me a 48Please respect copyright.PENANAkMdROv7tUt
little. And so did the others. Were these guys really in trouble?copyright protection44PENANAfUXmZL2L7F48Please respect copyright.PENANAJt8Y7kRGWm

"Are my brothers and Christine involved in this too?"copyright protection44PENANADB2GsuxTR748Please respect copyright.PENANAFD4KfrIaWB

"I can't be too sure. We have to ask them."copyright protection44PENANAHUxNlmeirW48Please respect copyright.PENANAngnB7c7eG2

"But that's strange. If 48Please respect copyright.PENANAIpwQnDbek7
it's something so serious as you put it, they would have told me. I 48Please respect copyright.PENANABZKFK07sb3
don't see the reason why they would hide."copyright protection44PENANATHRR3RD6CK48Please respect copyright.PENANA4ykrarEhGk

"If it's anything concerning my brother, I suggest you find out what's going on and fast. I don't like what's going on."copyright protection44PENANALflOVOitH948Please respect copyright.PENANAkoJQf7tqlN

"But what if all this isn't that serious? In fact, what makes you think your brother is that dangerous enough to hurt us?"copyright protection44PENANAAp38covqHX48Please respect copyright.PENANAyXNjDykK1v

Derrick leaned back on his chair as he looked at me and I waited for him to answer.copyright protection44PENANAnAEerI55OI48Please respect copyright.PENANAO548xeAbwg

"My brother isn't one person to mess around with. He is one person who threatens when things don't go his way."copyright protection44PENANAPzXbnTZGmH48Please respect copyright.PENANAvQFfGUmakI

"You think he is threatening Zoey?"copyright protection44PENANAPX6T6jiBKZ48Please respect copyright.PENANAYTFLcjkw3l

"He did visit Zoey in that café, didn't he?"copyright protection44PENANAz7Adm1Ws7K48Please respect copyright.PENANA1Sq50XkA8Q

"Wait! That was him?"copyright protection44PENANAaXk78I08on48Please respect copyright.PENANAREHwTnqfyL

"Yes. I was there."copyright protection44PENANAQelX7sgq4048Please respect copyright.PENANAXwEDiRWCn0

"You were there too?"copyright protection44PENANApD8ZRv1NX848Please respect copyright.PENANAXpTovTlPuu

"Yes. That's when I thought you should help me out with this."copyright protection44PENANAy85SfeBgn048Please respect copyright.PENANAGm8nT2Ljhj

"But what if I can't?" I folded my arms.copyright protection44PENANAEde0amsrMx48Please respect copyright.PENANA5fQKT8CQLZ

"Zoey is your best friend, isn't she?"copyright protection44PENANAsbaAb26cP348Please respect copyright.PENANAQJpK7UDtJ8

"She is."copyright protection44PENANAknbqgrERI248Please respect copyright.PENANAXpv6No8yIq

"And wouldn't you like to help her out with all of this?"copyright protection44PENANARnf5nqsQRe48Please respect copyright.PENANARNGHyzQapC

I was frustrated with the questions. "I would. But if she didn't tell me, then maybe it's not that serious."copyright protection44PENANAokpzUAB0Nq48Please respect copyright.PENANAaglz0tuEWd

"And do you really think she would tell you?"copyright protection44PENANA48Ogy4IdWr48Please respect copyright.PENANANUDi1qG9Zo

I thought about his 48Please respect copyright.PENANAAQcgyKPpVf
question for a moment. He was right. Some people wouldn't tell the truth48Please respect copyright.PENANA15wnFxQ9cN
just to prevent the ones they love from getting hurt. Maybe that's what48Please respect copyright.PENANAmZI0iJrZSq
Zoey did and I was too silly not to have realised it sooner.copyright protection44PENANAfNOvTcVl3N48Please respect copyright.PENANAnthAJQlzgg

"You're right," I said as I looked at my hands on my lap. She wasn't the only one who kept secrets.copyright protection44PENANAzr7Z02AC3n48Please respect copyright.PENANAPillF0Twa5

"Have you tried talking to your brother about this?" I asked.copyright protection44PENANA28wQp5V7iR48Please respect copyright.PENANAjw52xnLZmE

"No. He doesn't know that I'm onto him. And knowing how he is, he isn't going to tell me anything."copyright protection44PENANAyyFn4yAZUE48Please respect copyright.PENANAqK7HkQyGpO

I tapped my fingers on 48Please respect copyright.PENANAWf6iAMjuit
the table and I took the glass of water that was next to me and I drank.48Please respect copyright.PENANAzC0FEy2pxp
I had to think of something fast and I was running out of time. I had 48Please respect copyright.PENANA4XabFv1dbr

"Before I go, tell me 48Please respect copyright.PENANAclRd0vL3Vi
