Sunday was quiet and 54Please respect copyright.PENANA4K1JDowSuY
pretty not much the same when you know that your best friend isn't 54Please respect copyright.PENANAs7clVhSzZA
talking to you anymore. As much as I would have liked to bring up any 54Please respect copyright.PENANA9chn6HAWdm
random topic just for Zoey to talk to me, I knew she wouldn't respond or54Please respect copyright.PENANAZh600KpwCT
listen. She wouldn't even stay in the same room with me. copyright protection50PENANA35Q8qwsVIb54Please respect copyright.PENANAv51HqWZivY

Last night, Zoey moved 54Please respect copyright.PENANASFba2iSCe5
out from our room and since we booked the entire floor, she went over to54Please respect copyright.PENANAZen6foQFVt
the other room, far away from me. I couldn't blame her though and I 54Please respect copyright.PENANAzqyA8Yx8h3
didn't even try to talk her out of it. No one even bothered to try and 54Please respect copyright.PENANA69IikKAcnP
talk to her either.copyright protection50PENANARUnsQJ851254Please respect copyright.PENANAin3Ftj3jYZ

And so did Collins, who had no idea what was going on.copyright protection50PENANA6FoIlamodi54Please respect copyright.PENANAMxpl8yjFGA

It so happened that 54Please respect copyright.PENANAJNKs55cFiA
while Zoey was moving out of our room with some of her personal 54Please respect copyright.PENANAvAXzgrSjKQ
belongings, Collins appeared out of the elevator. He had asked her what 54Please respect copyright.PENANAjxoISwgccW
was going on and as usual, when Zoey is upset, she hardly talks to 54Please respect copyright.PENANAMVJxoPCBvU
anyone. When Collins asked the rest of us what was going on, I told him 54Please respect copyright.PENANAb0u9zKAs4l
that Zoey and I had an argument. With that, he didn't ask any more 54Please respect copyright.PENANAjoTH6LenXq
questions.copyright protection50PENANA4hoVpPrSKa54Please respect copyright.PENANAkKm4hKTUlp

Now, I was sitting 54Please respect copyright.PENANAOxpjHZ4is9
lazily on the couch in the lounge on a Sunday, trying to see anything 54Please respect copyright.PENANADLxwsEiG1g
interesting to watch on YouTube so as to pass time since my brothers had54Please respect copyright.PENANA7m0tqhekbz
now taken control of the TV and were playing Call of Duty. I did enjoy 54Please respect copyright.PENANAK07akO9o6C
myself watching k-pop music videos with the likes of BTS, EXO and many 54Please respect copyright.PENANAxKn5hPJzwL
others.copyright protection50PENANA3C4r4Uad0c54Please respect copyright.PENANAPD8Q7y8lTj

I was lying down in a sleeping position, still watching videos when Lee came into the lounge.copyright protection50PENANAf6REPcPbB254Please respect copyright.PENANAVDk2NERX3Y

"Are you just going to sit there the whole day like a lazy bum?" Lee asked as she came over to me.copyright protection50PENANAuGkTBJI2Bt54Please respect copyright.PENANAzBJWG0MqAi

"What?" I asked as I removed an earpiece from my ear. I heard her loud and clear even with my earpieces on.copyright protection50PENANAcF6h6bchoc54Please respect copyright.PENANAbqWjg3SooM

"You heard me," said Lee looking down on me, with an annoying look on her face. "Are you going to sit here the whole day?"copyright protection50PENANAtDjli8x7k954Please respect copyright.PENANAIkq2ndHebK

"Uh, ya," I nodded my head and put the earpiece back in my ear.copyright protection50PENANAaOPuHqeqtQ54Please respect copyright.PENANAdLlWH1Wusx

"Get up, let's go," said Lee as she pushed my legs and they dropped from the couch to the floor.copyright protection50PENANAUFv0XCb9Tz54Please respect copyright.PENANANEXJXdNQCb

"Lee!" I whined, putting54Please respect copyright.PENANADlv3nTg57s
my feet back up on the couch. Daniel and Mike who were on the floor 54Please respect copyright.PENANAPkdbhVdeqF
facing the TV, turned to look at Lee and I, pausing their game.copyright protection50PENANAlmdEHvNfD754Please respect copyright.PENANALdjIXhWK8z

"This isn't like you, Sam," said Lee, dropping my feet again. "You need to go out and have fun. It's Sunday."copyright protection50PENANApNWeiEFw4854Please respect copyright.PENANAWLUsOil5ns

"But I want to be here and watch videos on YouTube," I said as I sat upright.copyright protection50PENANAnYOSZLuaUn54Please respect copyright.PENANAxdNLo4GBi6

"No buts, Sam. We're going out whether you like it or not."copyright protection50PENANAJgKXVssIH654Please respect copyright.PENANAh4kAMhSJ10

"Why? I want to stay here."copyright protection50PENANAQ6UNlcr0Jw54Please respect copyright.PENANAiXLcpzuKFS

"I need to go and shop 54Please respect copyright.PENANAdd51Yu6F6p
for a few things and I think it will do you a lot of good too. Not after54Please respect copyright.PENANAMnt6YgnQ0p
what happened yesterday. I can tell you need a distraction."copyright protection50PENANA96vXZuJtEE54Please respect copyright.PENANAQinBvNbZyR

"But watching YouTube 54Please respect copyright.PENANASM4XN3sUIy
videos is the perfect distraction if you ask me. Besides, you should 54Please respect copyright.PENANAjuVNAT3YJ3
check out these other k-pop artists and groups. They are so awesome."copyright protection50PENANARoUBlQ3OzL54Please respect copyright.PENANAoAmMbRznR7

Lee turned to my brothers who still had their eyes on us the entire time. "Help me out here, guys. What should I do?"copyright protection50PENANAUpSPdd1EeL54Please respect copyright.PENANAeJTjHHm9B5

"I think Lee is right, 54Please respect copyright.PENANAHUzCIawL9g
Sam," said Daniel. "We all aren't busy today and you usually like going 54Please respect copyright.PENANAPyQbk12TpU
out on Sundays like you do back home."copyright protection50PENANAboSGmRb5kP54Please respect copyright.PENANA1EDVYlCkue

"But what's wrong with staying here for a while and do nothing but watch videos?" I asked, looking at my brothers.copyright protection50PENANAJceEOzuSo354Please respect copyright.PENANApc9ZPRalDj

"I know you're a fan of 54Please respect copyright.PENANABsRrEbtH5T
YouTube but the Sam I know wouldn't be here lazing around, not after 54Please respect copyright.PENANAB6xf1wAEQ5
what happened with G-Dragon and Zoey," said Mike.copyright protection50PENANADjtw8GJalY54Please respect copyright.PENANASgh2g6Tqrw

"So, what you're trying to say is that I've to try and figure out what to do with G-Dragon and Zoey?" I asked.copyright protection50PENANAWwmOdIFoO054Please respect copyright.PENANAJ3ZBvDNYkS

"Well, that's what 54Please respect copyright.PENANASVZqa1WLGM
you're good at," said Daniel. "You did say you were going to try and 54Please respect copyright.PENANAQz37BjeuJG
resolve things with Zoey. You usually come up with ideas to do so."copyright protection50PENANAeycsc02HSr54Please respect copyright.PENANA1tJ05eDSdX

"But that's when I decide to go out somewhere and think."copyright protection50PENANALwKe2TVM4h54Please respect copyright.PENANAL5TKw4MsPs

"That's what we are 54Please respect copyright.PENANAeG1iOCB27l
telling you, Sam. Start thinking things out or else at the end of it 54Please respect copyright.PENANAI9Os9THNMV
all, we won't be able to make the music video. Not with Zoey acting like54Please respect copyright.PENANALx1EixI4Zy
the goddess of wrath and G-Dragon still mad at you."copyright protection50PENANAK0O7O2QtqE54Please respect copyright.PENANAxeeyw3b85i

Daniel was right. I had 54Please respect copyright.PENANAtOsihBcYoY
to figure out what to do with those two and me sitting here wasn't going54Please respect copyright.PENANAU9vVOOtxSs
to solve anything. But how could I tell them that there were now other 54Please respect copyright.PENANA5pHkYdn9mt
problems to deal with? Like Zoey and Derrick's brother for example?copyright protection50PENANAtFcG8pGb6z54Please respect copyright.PENANAsQiV8zwlyV

Unlike the others, Lee 54Please respect copyright.PENANAjs5PoTDSrw
was the only person whom I told about what happened when I left YG 54Please respect copyright.PENANAkwW2RVgf5C
yesterday to meet with Derrick who told me what had been going on with 54Please respect copyright.PENANAIys1tBAZW9
Zoey and his brother. And right now, dealing with Derrick's brother was 54Please respect copyright.PENANAVfC050UJSl
going to be a lot tougher than trying to sort things out with G-Dragon 54Please respect copyright.PENANAgdScfJ8wZd
and Zoey together.copyright protection50PENANACS5n78h3Ul54Please respect copyright.PENANA8HLBIfcjf8

I really wanted to tell 54Please respect copyright.PENANAsao4bu55dY
these guys what was going on. Besides, they were there with Zoey in 54Please respect copyright.PENANArtckGs3OY3
Paris and they might have some clue as to what was really going on. But I54Please respect copyright.PENANA26LNHu3UNi
didn't want to really worry them. Not yet, at least. I had already put 54Please respect copyright.PENANA3gsrkEVqJ9
them through a lot because of my secrets and I was doing so all over 54Please respect copyright.PENANApbCBvj3z71
again. When was I ever going to change?copyright protection50PENANAkFl8NabEDB54Please respect copyright.PENANAC98nXQR0KF

"Okay, I'll go," I said as I stood up. "You're right. I have to think of something, and fast."copyright protection50PENANAi7hvNqVuB254Please respect copyright.PENANAiNVLfgpbG9

"Great," said Lee. "Now, go get your shoes. Collins isn't around so we can stay out for as long as we want."copyright protection50PENANA3eU9C1iT4d54Please respect copyright.PENANAl5kXHQhLpp

"Has anyone seen Christine?" Daniel asked.copyright protection50PENANAfpTByGLJko54Please respect copyright.PENANAN2yVqwMhxx

"She is with Zoey," said Mike, rolling his eyes as he mentioned Zoey's name. "They are probably in the room talking."copyright protection50PENANAlDwC9j24NE54Please respect copyright.PENANAXPlSBB90MQ

"Hopefully, Christine would be able to convince Zoey to forgive me," I said.copyright protection50PENANA6RS01v2jo754Please respect copyright.PENANAa7Wv5DlnoL

Lee, Mike and Daniel 54Please respect copyright.PENANAMbNk7dRTvo
shook their heads and muttered out words of disapproval. I didn't say 54Please respect copyright.PENANArseMlPnuQa
anything, as I also shook my head at them. I went out of the lounge, 54Please respect copyright.PENANAk0igvnURKi
straight to my room to get my shoes.copyright protection50PENANAwDwqf560Or54Please respect copyright.PENANACxtqSBEJu9

After I wore my white 54Please respect copyright.PENANA7VCmIYb5s2
pumps to match with my white jeans and purple tank top and got my purse,54Please respect copyright.PENANAfN2x3yVXpG
I went to Christine's room. I made sure to knock first, and when 54Please respect copyright.PENANAg1dKs5l6PQ
Christine called from inside to come in, I slowly opened the door. I 54Please respect copyright.PENANAgXMTjuRvAj
didn't go in the room as I saw Christine and Zoey on the bed facing each54Please respect copyright.PENANAxQ7zoa7j8x
other. They were quiet when they saw me at the door.copyright protection50PENANAp95VMefPj354Please respect copyright.PENANA0pze91kv79

"Hey," I said. Zoey looked away, ignoring me. "Lee and I will be going out. I just wanted to let you know."copyright protection50PENANAtpUmqWRtfg54Please respect copyright.PENANAmn68gpD8Ue

"Okay," said Christine. "Have fun."copyright protection50PENANAAMU7c9cj9154Please respect copyright.PENANAsr4z1sK9MT

I nodded my head and quickly closed the door. It was still clear that Zoey didn't want to talk to me.copyright protection50PENANALzaQuX5JMo54Please respect copyright.PENANAGNif1sglXo

I walked down the hall and back to the lounge where Lee was waiting for me.copyright protection50PENANANgOHDfDvIT54Please respect copyright.PENANAujMBs305bV

"We can go, now," I told Lee.copyright protection50PENANALjGGrTPDcZ54Please respect copyright.PENANAjDnocoRWyD

"Alright, see you guys," said Lee as she turned to the boys.copyright protection50PENANAFXyPO3NUNA54Please respect copyright.PENANAPfq7usALOx

"Bye," said Mike, his eyes glued to the TV screen and his fingers continually working on the control buttons on the game pad.copyright protection50PENANAiAQ7iumWZ554Please respect copyright.PENANAajRWUjZVpa

"Have fun, Sam," said Daniel as he managed to look at me and smile.copyright protection50PENANAQLowrPphtC54Please respect copyright.PENANAQJOd70CYXb

I smiled back at him, 54Please respect copyright.PENANACMq3UVwuHk
then Lee and I took off for the elevator. When we reached the ground 54Please respect copyright.PENANA2RDUNxeNsD
floor, the SUV was waiting for us as usual. And there were two body 54Please respect copyright.PENANAYjnMxvMauJ
guards in the other SUV.copyright protection50PENANAg8zPYoTLiH54Please respect copyright.PENANAl6wMarHGWo

"Looks like you have everything planned out for the day," I said as I entered the car and Lee followed.copyright protection50PENANAmBhcIzH4wG54Please respect copyright.PENANA0YfET3b7QE

"Well, someone had to bring you back to reality and focus on what's really important," said Lee, as she closed the door.copyright protection50PENANA9msySToiaR54Please respect copyright.PENANALOY8AvDnF7

"If you mean Zoey and G-Dragon, I don't know what to do anymore."copyright protection50PENANAUr0uhYSbKb54Please respect copyright.PENANA71eENo5u51

The car's engine roared to life and the car drove out for the hotel premises with other car following behind us.copyright protection50PENANAS6M9juJ0zg54Please respect copyright.PENANAT609KTcW13

"So, where are we going?" I asked.copyright protection50PENANAHJC9iv3GNe54Please respect copyright.PENANAAMRzUs4yQK

"To the mall," Lee answered.copyright protection50PENANAxHGybXw48h54Please respect copyright.PENANAGYLUCzjI4o

"How will the mall help me figure things out?"copyright protection50PENANAg0o2aIxUJ754Please respect copyright.PENANAJXuK6eEjbF

"What's wrong with the 54Please respect copyright.PENANAmMrdlmGpUw
mall? Just trying to distract yourself will help you out. Sometimes the 54Please respect copyright.PENANAaAvWv7vOPz
best plans just come out of the blue."copyright protection50PENANAaqRMA9hEP554Please respect copyright.PENANAdzxHkEWZX8

"I should have just stayed behind and continued watching videos."copyright protection50PENANASmMyVYws3F54Please respect copyright.PENANAEjU6xftdFn

"And waste the day away? No way."copyright protection50PENANAJjG8mQQTLz54Please respect copyright.PENANAKPYfLtngic

"Come on, Lee. Right now, I have no idea what to do and watching videos was the perfect way to distract myself."copyright protection50PENANA1V0SIB1ZfQ54Please respect copyright.PENANAQvMnd61a5Z

"I know. I had to get you away from there so that we can talk about Derrick's brother."copyright protection50PENANA48dRG8QdAU54Please respect copyright.PENANAiKicRPsk27

"And what am I going to do with him? Unless I find out what Zoey's hiding, I can't come up with anything."copyright protection50PENANASkdyszoit954Please respect copyright.PENANAINWG3HaqXt

"Didn't you check around the room for any clues?"copyright protection50PENANASu5SnNuoNJ54Please respect copyright.PENANADOYpbcwdmC

"No. Zoey might have 54Please respect copyright.PENANAcFmvRekjyn
moved some of her stuff out of the room, but if she was hiding 54Please respect copyright.PENANAqhanYd48E2
something, she isn't dumb enough to leave it behind. I checked last 54Please respect copyright.PENANAChQAH2Ndg9
night when she moved out and I couldn't find anything."copyright protection50PENANAeSRsKyAALb54Please respect copyright.PENANAPtOcYGri0Z

"Well that's a bummer. What do you think she's hiding?"copyright protection50PENANAuDvIcXiBgM54Please respect copyright.PENANAGrhQOf4ToJ

"I don't know. But the way Derrick described his brother, I'm expecting it's something serious."copyright protection50PENANAL9hQ2EDw2r54Please respect copyright.PENANAV00MBHOoV5

"Are you sure you checked everywhere?"copyright protection50PENANAfhj7J4GjEr54Please respect copyright.PENANAyLynYw4pP5

"The closet, her suitcase and even under the bed. There is nothing."copyright protection50PENANAv950ShYaSf54Please respect copyright.PENANApvwGmlVrfk

Lee remained quiet and as for me, I went to looking at the windshield in front of me, looking down the streets of Seoul.copyright protection50PENANAWDoduqS8WU54Please respect copyright.PENANAaakbXWTLkO

"I don't know what to do54Please respect copyright.PENANAQSApgyVkYL
anymore," I said, my eyes still on the road. "Now that I know that Zoey54Please respect copyright.PENANApnhW4DhZ5w
might be in trouble, I can't just sit by and watch quietly. I know Zoey54Please respect copyright.PENANAkfHErEAkqV
doesn't like to admit she is in trouble, but I have to help her out 54Please respect copyright.PENANA8hOJG4hCof
somehow."copyright protection50PENANAzcbTjUXZeC54Please respect copyright.PENANAnNDEKHi1Hn

"But we can't do this alone, you know? At some point, we will have to involve the others too."copyright protection50PENANArKLxKDOJOH54Please respect copyright.PENANAy1DgG4Vhol

"True. And I'll also have to ask the others their side of the story with what happened in Paris."copyright protection50PENANAYLlmZPNRXJ54Please respect copyright.PENANAcxD0gj5yWt

"Mmm. Acting a true detective. Trying to put one piece of a puzzle together with another."copyright protection50PENANALwWXqgSng754Please respect copyright.PENANAOkhrZ19h3Q

I folded my arms as I 54Please respect copyright.PENANAFCSiTymOQL
leaned back further in my seat, the wheels of my mind starting to work 54Please respect copyright.PENANAa2jN3z7884
but I couldn't figure out what to do. I had too many problems to deal 54Please respect copyright.PENANACXoUpnVyFZ
with and it was driving me nuts. I wonder why I wasn't running around 54Please respect copyright.PENANApkChDvQ0jH
the street with a crazy hairdo right now.copyright protection50PENANA0HRLeBp3kd54Please respect copyright.PENANALuJ5iNFpWN

We soon reached the mall54Please respect copyright.PENANAtzKSt9gpIV
and we came out of the car, heading towards the building with our two 54Please respect copyright.PENANAp7g1pTwgTQ
body guards behind us. I carried my shades with me this time and I wore 54Please respect copyright.PENANAXFkHKCuq2r
them as we went in the mall. I could already feel eyes on me and see 54Please respect copyright.PENANAdw0You8ETQ
phones coming out out of people's pockets as we passed. I was glad that 54Please respect copyright.PENANAAiYQjnJQDD
the bodyguards were around.copyright protection50PENANAKjZ5FYUsPS54Please respect copyright.PENANAGBj0i4DMuF

Lee and I first went 54Please respect copyright.PENANAeIbeHAIPeC
shopping for clothes. We even tried out some of them. I had to admit, 54Please respect copyright.PENANAGOVEFe1p5F
shopping and trying out new clothes made me forget about some things for54Please respect copyright.PENANA3LgmLyrplW
a while. I was having fun.copyright protection50PENANAcAp8yPoqdE54Please respect copyright.PENANA4AFfPmPyb4

And if it came to the fans, some were brave enough to go past the guards and come take photos with me and take autographs.copyright protection50PENANAxdmoZB0oEk54Please respect copyright.PENANAaST5wykyXp

Lee and I soon came out 54Please respect copyright.PENANAd1aunW3Plp
of a shoe store after buying some expensive shoes. I bet I bought more 54Please respect copyright.PENANALqZrGONvmZ
clothes than shoes and Lee was vice versa. We even managed to buy a few 54Please respect copyright.PENANAAwRtCn2WV0
things for the others as well. The bodyguards had to help us out with 54Please respect copyright.PENANAm91xEptHeP
our bags because we bought way too much.copyright protection50PENANACpDBvjAqMp54Please respect copyright.PENANA70f6rVUfrh

When we walked out of 54Please respect copyright.PENANAe2O5wqtynp
the store, Lee suggested that we go down to the food court and get 54Please respect copyright.PENANAzJzAhdZKVe
ourselves something to eat. We were above the ground floor and just as 54Please respect copyright.PENANAA2fQ9HM3Wd
we were about to take the glass elevator, I noticed that opposite the 54Please respect copyright.PENANAlag9gMzKkX
elevator was a toy store. I looked at the toys shown on display.copyright protection50PENANAiY0H7yxwYK54Please respect copyright.PENANA9THIuYWuIR

"Hey, what are you looking at?" Lee asked as she noticed that I had stopped.copyright protection50PENANAbwXxUW8UlN54Please respect copyright.PENANAIjUY93FW7C

I couldn't answer Lee. I54Please respect copyright.PENANA9sNqB4cbOw
also didn't know why I was staring at the toys on display. Something 54Please respect copyright.PENANA8XqPGUNCpw
had drawn me to this store and I wondered what it was.copyright protection50PENANAfYcSAHca7Y54Please respect copyright.PENANAu8Qp60sMWA

"Hello! Earth to Sam!" Lee's fingers snapped in front of me.copyright protection50PENANAzqXA848FB754Please respect copyright.PENANAp62cwEgIP5

"Huh?" I turned to look at Lee.copyright protection50PENANApMDnjykssG54Please respect copyright.PENANAfY2FOJABlZ

"What's wrong? What are you looking at?"copyright protection50PENANAfHEsAeaNpi54Please respect copyright.PENANA8Q8YfeYI1V

"I..." I went back to looking at the toys on the glass display. "I don't know."copyright protection50PENANALZIJzQOHvp54Please respect copyright.PENANAiq1lCxZTfP

"You don't know? You're staring at those toys like you want to buy them all."copyright protection50PENANAPVbsjv0DXt54Please respect copyright.PENANAYvN1bCKMd5

"I'm not a child, Lee." I rolled my eyes at her.copyright protection50PENANAkdbYFMdPzD54Please respect copyright.PENANAMmWUlb8kT9

"Then why are you looking at those toys like that?"copyright protection50PENANA8lCQ4bHTTd54Please respect copyright.PENANAfczgxcNw53

"I...I..." I scratched my head. This was weird even for me too.copyright protection50PENANAiI9tasZb6W54Please respect copyright.PENANAm4ya5JMPw0

I looked at each and 54Please respect copyright.PENANAVimRcI3k2X
every single toy on display till my eyes rested on a huge brown teddy 54Please respect copyright.PENANAuh94xGgldm
bear. I looked at it for a while until my mind clicked.copyright protection50PENANAFq9QpPCDFc54Please respect copyright.PENANAoAqXKvHwld

"Teddy," I said, looking at Lee.copyright protection50PENANAgNxSEC4lvX54Please respect copyright.PENANAxgvT8HBb2E

"What?" Lee looked 54Please respect copyright.PENANA8xViBsZSOd
really confused and I bet in her mind she was obviously thinking that I 54Please respect copyright.PENANAfdNFbxbS4w
was crazy. "You want a teddy bear? But you already have a stuffed 54Please respect copyright.PENANA6BNCvVk76n
panda."copyright protection50PENANAzOFIiQah1g54Please respect copyright.PENANALfUGyw9xoX

"No, not that. Mr Teddy. The little teddy bear back at the hotel."copyright protection50PENANAdHHnx7daKS54Please respect copyright.PENANAKEayjm5vea

"Ya? What's wrong with it?" Lee asked as she shrugged her shoulders.copyright protection50PENANAm1GUTkxYG254Please respect copyright.PENANA2lLPXgKioR

"Derrick's brother sent 54Please respect copyright.PENANAF96APF6Zcv
it to us that day, remember?" I hit my head in frustration. "Gosh! I 54Please respect copyright.PENANAXX98vtuBYJ
should have asked Derrick if he knew that his brother sent us that teddy54Please respect copyright.PENANAL04wP2NAkb
bear."copyright protection50PENANAVfRAX9r8qt54Please respect copyright.PENANAr0kyAadGap

"But why are you so concerned about it? It's just a teddy bear."copyright protection50PENANApEa61HefSY54Please respect copyright.PENANAc7nlfTOJuN

"Ya, sent by Derrick's evil brother. That has to count as something, right?"copyright protection50PENANA8fZO9T9HRQ54Please respect copyright.PENANAsfNxMDzAdU

"I don't get it though."54Please respect copyright.PENANALFU6duhqbs
Lee shook her head as she stared at the toys on display. "Why are you 54Please respect copyright.PENANAQnzdJP7yzB
so concerned about that small teddy?"copyright protection50PENANAJN5Bo3KPba54Please respect copyright.PENANAl2R9zDN9e1

"I'm tired of hearing the same thing over and over again," I said as I rubbed my forehead in frustration.copyright protection50PENANAoYZcqH3BD854Please respect copyright.PENANADEPkCWd5kx

"You know I'm not going to quit, Zoey," said Christine as she looked at me with a stern look.copyright protection50PENANADynVsqmgCv54Please respect copyright.PENANAKaHNz5zPBU

were having so much fun that night. When we went for the Chanel fashion54Please respect copyright.PENANA8R8IBatuCS
show as planned, it was fun looking at the latest fashion being worn 54Please respect copyright.PENANAGQWLTm7UJf
and showcased on the catwalk. At that time I felt on top of the world 54Please respect copyright.PENANAq4vfcHHw98
with what had happened between G-Dragon and I at the Eiffle Tower. And I54Please respect copyright.PENANAvh0D0CNt6q

As54Please respect copyright.PENANABHABlAe83k
we were watching the models down the runway, I was seated next to 54Please respect copyright.PENANAyp8PIH0no5
someone whom I hadn't really took notice for a while since the fashion 54Please respect copyright.PENANAMkBgLmWUO8
show started until he turned to look at me and said hi. He introduced 54Please respect copyright.PENANAdqQN2cngkr
himself as Jehan. He told me he was French.copyright protection50PENANAIOMYGXSs4D54Please respect copyright.PENANABTRJJAqKXP

When54Please respect copyright.PENANAQK9r0VOWQD
I looked at him, he seemed like a really nice guy. He was also very 54Please respect copyright.PENANA533WQ58els
handsome. He recognised me as one of the Toxins and said he was a huge 54Please respect copyright.PENANAGWmxG677Q5
fan. We talked for a while during the fashion show and for a moment 54Please respect copyright.PENANAWGP58Q0XMQ
there, we seemed to be getting along just fine. I also introduced him to54Please respect copyright.PENANAASTDOKJWZ5

After54Please respect copyright.PENANAH5LBJAmswl
the show when everyone was busy finding themselves among groups and 54Please respect copyright.PENANAxW1zIehAA6
indulging themselves into some random conversation, Jehan, said that he 54Please respect copyright.PENANAj1RIiIgpzM
wanted to talk to me in private. I didn't like the idea of leaving the 54Please respect copyright.PENANAjhR5TBFg4c

it was only going to take a few minutes.copyright protection50PENANA6JaZ3pXbAC54Please respect copyright.PENANAAKtssMaJbK

I54Please respect copyright.PENANAvu2nAVYfb3
didn't find anything wrong with it and I agreed to go out with him for a54Please respect copyright.PENANArNFAqRqilR
while. Besides, I was getting too much attention and me going out 54Please respect copyright.PENANALVBeo40zOc
looked like a good idea at the time. Without telling G-Dragon who was 54Please respect copyright.PENANAjjHlGhhFxt

they wouldn't miss me too much.copyright protection50PENANAEjqqh7o9zt54Please respect copyright.PENANASMwu1Uz2tn

Jehan54Please respect copyright.PENANAeNGW8ndq3L
led the way out and we found ourselves outside. It was lovely and the 54Please respect copyright.PENANATLKa9kSolT
night was cool as we took a walk around a small garden outside the 54Please respect copyright.PENANAZdFvIHqhJT
building. There were a few people outside some near the fountain. At 54Please respect copyright.PENANAFXGlTPJ7gM
least there was an assurance that if anything were to go wrong, there 54Please respect copyright.PENANAS9yDkHXd6i
were witnesses. With that I felt a little safe.copyright protection50PENANANv3HCvkVZm54Please respect copyright.PENANA76wNBeu2wd

The54Please respect copyright.PENANAWbaCx4shcI
two of us soon found ourselves indulged in some conversation. Before I 54Please respect copyright.PENANA35SCIdkFqq
knew it, we were all alone in the garden and that's when Jehan took the 54Please respect copyright.PENANAYxxvk9KObg
opportunity to threaten me. It was something I hadn't told anyone about 54Please respect copyright.PENANA27sdK0hdhu
because what happened frightened me. And coming from a person like 54Please respect copyright.PENANAWlzOXh2hXt
Jehan, you could doubt that such a guy like him would ever do such a 54Please respect copyright.PENANAIW0frlobaz
thing. Yet alone on a lady. He said if I didn't do whatever he said, he 54Please respect copyright.PENANAscHUqrUHEb
wouldn't hesitate to hunt me down and kill me. I believed his threats 54Please respect copyright.PENANAcAxLpu2rL0
because he was pointing a gun at me and his face went from sweet and 54Please respect copyright.PENANAUuWVJnh7zs
kind to dangerous and menacing.copyright protection50PENANA066b5aA2lb54Please respect copyright.PENANAH1EoW5PQNu

He54Please respect copyright.PENANA2Z4zKu4NVQ
gave me something for me to keep safe and not to let anyone know about 54Please respect copyright.PENANANQkJL372bG
it. He said he would follow me to Korea and get it. He was the same 54Please respect copyright.PENANAuSI9hEe7v2
person I had met at the café and when I gave him the item back, he said 54Please respect copyright.PENANABy1G8Lacz5
there was more that had to be done. When I asked what he meant, he 54Please respect copyright.PENANA2mVm6HqeKB
didn't say anything. All he said was that something was going to be sent54Please respect copyright.PENANAVeuDoLiDSN
to me back at the hotel in the name of The Toxins. That's how the teddy54Please respect copyright.PENANAFtlG9usjG1

why he would want to meet me at the mall. I was expecting the café again54Please respect copyright.PENANAs6IWdo2FF2

"No way." I asked as I drank from my smoothie.copyright protection50PENANAfmy89Nx5Tb54Please respect copyright.PENANAMhEQW15Ioi

"So, what should we do with that teddy bear?"copyright protection50PENANAuXbERz4vH954Please respect copyright.PENANAD86hDsAcqK

"Keep it away from her. Whatever that thing has, we have to know before she takes it away."copyright protection50PENANAivnDYWvMpt54Please respect copyright.PENANA3Ayqhu0NJd

"I wonder why she never kept it for herself. I mean, if she is being threatened, her life will depend on that teddy, right?"copyright protection50PENANA5FQDOZrl5k54Please respect copyright.PENANAtwu7mq8r9x

"True." I nodded my head. "I bet she pretended to hate the teddy so that we don't get suspicious of anything."copyright protection50PENANAwziIe9hiEZ54Please respect copyright.PENANAKMGR3jjEwJ

"She did a pretty good job on that one."copyright protection50PENANArXvPBuL6gb54Please respect copyright.PENANApAkY0Bs0pc

thought. "Don't you think the two would try to meet today, no matter 54Please respect copyright.PENANApL0R1CqpUs
what?"copyright protection50PENANAP88Gy8kYzk54Please respect copyright.PENANABpF0HoBNfP

I54Please respect copyright.PENANAICUGpwnCMY
raised an eyebrow at her. Come to think of it, I was supposed to be 54Please respect copyright.PENANAobKo2L0tbV
keeping an eye out for Zoey. But here I was, eating fries. I completely 54Please respect copyright.PENANAWMkBN10oPf
forgot.copyright protection50PENANAtkRyp6RDCt54Please respect copyright.PENANAeyS8eiFCUr

loud. I hit my head with my hand. "You're so right, Lee."copyright protection50PENANAw9wnbpPH3o54Please respect copyright.PENANALPnob54iOe

"But54Please respect copyright.PENANANoz840bDrW
today might be the perfect time for them to meet. We are here, the boys54Please respect copyright.PENANAtHHPkiPA3a

My54Please respect copyright.PENANA4ahkxl4qHn
heart rate quickened at the thought of Zoey meeting Derrick's brother. I54Please respect copyright.PENANA59t9aHic63
was scared. What if she sees him today and things don't go well this 54Please respect copyright.PENANAFtiQxmlThr

"If I were you, I would give Zoey a call," said Lee. She obviously saw the worried look on my face.copyright protection50PENANAeLFy7Gszug54Please respect copyright.PENANA7FOAPZi7bp

"No, you do it," I said shaking my head. "She isn't going to answer my call."copyright protection50PENANA4Cl7rwfkUk54Please respect copyright.PENANAbRSuHpR2j8

"Oh, yeah," said Lee as she took out her phone from her handbag and called Zoey.copyright protection50PENANAX9POnhiM6d54Please respect copyright.PENANAuDt5f9ecTO

"She isn't picking up," said Lee as she looked at her phone. "She must have switched her phone off."copyright protection50PENANA3kYJS6qlFU54Please respect copyright.PENANAS1tGCiGUpR

"She must have gone to see him. Call Christine and ask about Zoey."copyright protection50PENANABKxWRYt7jo54Please respect copyright.PENANAjBIb5pBWsU

"Hey, Christine," said Lee as she looked over at me and I watched her intently. "I wanted to ask if Zoey is with you."copyright protection50PENANAAL0zuTFUek54Please respect copyright.PENANA4RCyyfRe9g

There was a pause as Lee listened to Christine over the phone. Lee's face changed completely.copyright protection50PENANAOQ5lNWkg3D54Please respect copyright.PENANA6sSODXeeTG

"Alright,54Please respect copyright.PENANA9XDGwEtdVs
thanks, Christine," said Lee as she cut the call and looked at me. 54Please respect copyright.PENANAP0kszSHq7Q
"Zoey had left the hotel a few minutes ago. Christine says she went out 54Please respect copyright.PENANAHdiz1Wwgbq
with Seungri."copyright protection50PENANAEvUcNZ7nlO54Please respect copyright.PENANAXloA1Ufv7a

I raised an eyebrow. "Seungri? Why would Seungri meet with Zoey? I bet she lied."copyright protection50PENANA2Wz2v3WaYa54Please respect copyright.PENANAYXbipKb6ai

"Of course she did. She has obviously gone to meet with this guy."copyright protection50PENANAvN0A9Nxt4A54Please respect copyright.PENANAXRvgqxdXOp

"Did Christine say where she had gone?"copyright protection50PENANA7I61UT01gm54Please respect copyright.PENANAnLKLlMGAhN

"No. Zoey wasn't specific. All Christine said was that she and Seungri were going to some fancy place."copyright protection50PENANAQjipmOtiYr54Please respect copyright.PENANALfLXxaHJhS

I suddenly decided to get my phone from my purse and called Seungri. He answered the call immediately.copyright protection50PENANAtueu5ohCRm54Please respect copyright.PENANA1fJxva4J8T

"Hey, BK," he said so enthusiastically over the phone. "How are you?"copyright protection50PENANAdY4j0Zd01u54Please respect copyright.PENANA8wEShZEYAV

"I'm fine, Seungri, thanks," I said, immediately jumping to the point. "Where are you?"copyright protection50PENANAnROGgauKtt54Please respect copyright.PENANAMlbxiJI0sZ

"I'm in my car heading to GD's. Is there anything I could do for you?"copyright protection50PENANAbWXqr2OJEG54Please respect copyright.PENANAStfC1LN6uV

"Uh, no, nothing. Was just asking. Are you alone?"copyright protection50PENANA5RF9bF9oGa54Please respect copyright.PENANAZCrDvJD9Hd

"Yes,54Please respect copyright.PENANA5tzg0SZJSr
I am." I could already imagine a smile on his face and I had to get 54Please respect copyright.PENANAJLVYnWJa3e
ready for a ridiculous question to follow. "Why? You think I'm with 54Please respect copyright.PENANA62QxFlhivY
someone? A woman perhaps?"copyright protection50PENANAT42HKiSe2l54Please respect copyright.PENANAwBs5RtXRcQ

I54Please respect copyright.PENANAjVBfUZcD9f
rolled my eyes and as much as I wanted to remain stoic and not laugh, I54Please respect copyright.PENANARghINW45fA
did. I quickly tried to cover it up, but Seungri also heard it and 54Please respect copyright.PENANA4LbwR3ZOVc
chuckled. Lee looked at me with an eyebrow raised as I laughed out loud 54Please respect copyright.PENANAEe8gt2fFGp
this time around.copyright protection50PENANAHeiEFJHusm54Please respect copyright.PENANAUxFcgt9lyo

"What makes you think that?" I asked after recovering from my laugh.copyright protection50PENANAaxeQHpvROc54Please respect copyright.PENANAVCa691a9Q5

"For you to call, I'm guessing you must have been thinking of me and tried to see what I'm up to."copyright protection50PENANA1Hg4p0mhfp54Please respect copyright.PENANAlvjtLNw1tc

I54Please respect copyright.PENANAqoK6A0zJl8
bit my lower lip and shook my head. If only he knew why I called. But I54Please respect copyright.PENANA8hKinUkx3a
had to admit, he was really making me laugh even when I didn't want to.copyright protection50PENANACWEVBkEjO754Please respect copyright.PENANADoGXSrKptd

"It's really nothing, Seungri. I just wanted to say hi."copyright protection50PENANAFYFTPmjke854Please respect copyright.PENANABTBl0cmzVH

"Well, if you say so." I knew he wasn't buying it. "Where are you?"copyright protection50PENANAxgQOkfPHw454Please respect copyright.PENANAH3YslmmGUq

"Ya, it was," I said still with a smile on my face.copyright protection50PENANAYOwmBU4E8t54Please respect copyright.PENANAHQoXXuyqXQ

"So, he isn't with Zoey?"copyright protection50PENANAeqZYKhMHFl54Please respect copyright.PENANAORZKzFaZkQ

"Nope.54Please respect copyright.PENANAwrZLUd4JIN
And he isn't going to some fancy place either." I paused as the smile 54Please respect copyright.PENANAuqDTnAoW1l
on my face disappeared. "He's gone to see G-Dragon."copyright protection50PENANAAXL68I70zY54Please respect copyright.PENANANPdMzMsKLM

"Oh." Lee took her smoothie and sucked on the straw. "Umm, what are we going to do now? We have to know where Zoey is."copyright protection50PENANAWxMsTonY2v54Please respect copyright.PENANABheA38O7Sx

"You're right," I said. "But where can we even start to look? This time, I'm blank."copyright protection50PENANArhWrfGJ2no54Please respect copyright.PENANAUnYygl9Eha

"Maybe they are going to meet at the café again."copyright protection50PENANAnXm83uRbuq54Please respect copyright.PENANA05ZdRzZkjK

I shook my head. "I highly doubt it. Even if we were to guess where they could meet, it would probably be too late."copyright protection50PENANA9rYWTRkgPn54Please respect copyright.PENANA7U2lv5ukcm

"Tell54Please respect copyright.PENANAZEzZRrzRLS
me about it." I put my elbows on the table and held my head in my 54Please respect copyright.PENANABSNEejJIDW
hands. "I shouldn't have allowed this to happen. I shouldn't have been 54Please respect copyright.PENANA5w4PmKPyzt
so absent minded."copyright protection50PENANAQjJcsNGkZb54Please respect copyright.PENANA3z7CzZ38QO

"Don't beat yourself up, Sam," said Lee. "Maybe it's time we told Zoey what we already know."copyright protection50PENANAK8CI4wAoMq54Please respect copyright.PENANA1sHP6W8QEM

I nodded. We were now caught in a dead end and maybe it was time we involved the others too.copyright protection50PENANAMyIqhqkFSh54Please respect copyright.PENANANKiSzFCoec

of the mall.copyright protection50PENANArJAbV3YCnX54Please respect copyright.PENANALFJxFDSFAm

As54Please respect copyright.PENANAwmRPQcggFx
soon as we walked out through the main entrance, a fancy looking red 54Please respect copyright.PENANAlUC9szyF8l
Ferrari was parked right in front of us in the parking lot. Just as we 54Please respect copyright.PENANA7U0RrGukm4

and a man in a fancy looking black suit stepped out.copyright protection50PENANAN86qRbWsAJ54Please respect copyright.PENANAvTk83MHBsP

Time54Please respect copyright.PENANAWAJXrbEWv0
seemed to have stopped when I looked at the man from the corner of my 54Please respect copyright.PENANA0cSsLAKwzi
eye. He was tall and handsome with a strong jaw and black shiny hair 54Please respect copyright.PENANAW5cgdf3URw
which was combed back. He had a pair of sunglasses on and I couldn't 54Please respect copyright.PENANAKN7tLzFpva
help but feel something familiar about him.copyright protection50PENANATmiBNz28fV54Please respect copyright.PENANApwniY8SIEs

Just54Please respect copyright.PENANA0AxcRKsUFj
as I was about to focus ahead, the man removed his shades and I fully 54Please respect copyright.PENANArp7yTT7yiC
turned to look at him. My mouth almost dropped and I couldn't believe 54Please respect copyright.PENANAJI8607fTPU
what I was seeing.copyright protection50PENANApGE0RA3Qcr54Please respect copyright.PENANAlQvT3mDvhi

I54Please respect copyright.PENANAPJHWhAPp98
almost tripped and fell over on the road but I was quick to gather 54Please respect copyright.PENANA2SRbZRieL8
myself. Lee looked at me with concern because even the guards almost 54Please respect copyright.PENANA87YE021Exi
came to my rescue to stop me from falling.copyright protection50PENANAN0zUqr5nTG54Please respect copyright.PENANAWn2Ekjf9Jo

I54Please respect copyright.PENANAoEVniVpjzX
didn't say a word as I looked behind me where the Ferrari was packed 54Please respect copyright.PENANACwkEbEYrOI
and I noticed the man go inside the mall. I turned to look at Lee.copyright protection50PENANAmnU0nLAqCM54Please respect copyright.PENANAQ6u7groiIT

"Hey54Please respect copyright.PENANA2dxrFnv9fA

Taeyang. "You guys look downcast as though someone's just died."copyright protection50PENANABk5vDqdDNi54Please respect copyright.PENANAp8QAFL1TUw

"This54Please respect copyright.PENANAtwh5II9y12
is getting real frustrating, guys," said G-Dragon who was hugging a 54Please respect copyright.PENANArqah0Q22JX

time to talk with her or with anyone of you."copyright protection50PENANAGkmTZ7bgBw54Please respect copyright.PENANAdFMvKudU3f

"No,54Please respect copyright.PENANAWuF7MGXPIH
I think now is the time to solve things with Sam," said Taeyang. "We 54Please respect copyright.PENANAMgEFymXfc9

"And let's not forget, Zoey," said Seungri.copyright protection50PENANAeRqMJkx9IH54Please respect copyright.PENANAcJJRpienyr

"Why? Because Sam and Daesung kissed?" Seungri asked with an eyebrow raised.copyright protection50PENANABCPVFlFM1n54Please respect copyright.PENANARS2r15b7pA

maybe," said G-Dragon. "The thing is, the day Zoey went missing, she 54Please respect copyright.PENANAP6zRxBWJIm
and I had a talk in the park about the same thing. She figured out that I54Please respect copyright.PENANAj2dqiGjBOR

do you mean?" G-Dragon asked as he looked up at Seungri. "Sam didn't 54Please respect copyright.PENANA78revOymQ7

"Because54Please respect copyright.PENANAzI3E8dILob
I know I'll never get a chance to do so. Sam is a great person and 54Please respect copyright.PENANAyWGUVhAm7I
calling her great is an understatement because she is way beyond that. 54Please respect copyright.PENANAfP8eoUARzi
And I see something in her that I've never seen in any other girl 54Please respect copyright.PENANA981cN9qvUO

"Maybe54Please respect copyright.PENANAp1rrdeBDKw

in his eyes that could make you drop dead in seconds. I wondered why 54Please respect copyright.PENANAVelpcqbMlt
such a handsome man like him, could be so hard to the core. As much as 54Please respect copyright.PENANAWjEYo4B5cy

"Why?"copyright protection50PENANA3LlRyF1mBm54Please respect copyright.PENANAxPcRR92qWu

I put the menu aside and leaned forward on the table. That caught his attention. He looked at me with an eyebrow raised.copyright protection50PENANAhLXvGEQ62T54Please respect copyright.PENANAggLYzvCDuS

"I just want to know what you do. And by the looks of it, it's pretty serious."copyright protection50PENANAZ5p1vSOn1Q54Please respect copyright.PENANAfHsYSWXaDr

"I'll54Please respect copyright.PENANAfdZEzNCqde
try not to next time." He turned to the waiter who had been waiting for54Please respect copyright.PENANALw5OhUKZIQ
our order. Jehan ordered the same meal for the both of us. The waiter 54Please respect copyright.PENANAkWLRrJp4R3

"Not tell anyone."copyright protection50PENANAmF8Mh7wq2q54Please respect copyright.PENANAI0U0fGRh39

"Come54Please respect copyright.PENANAzIWcEN5uKN
with me," I said as I led the way into the mall, heading towards the 54Please respect copyright.PENANApR9AilbNq2

"Hi54Please respect copyright.PENANAjZwWdAdgKY

turned to look at G-Dragon. What was he saying? I was very surprised by54Please respect copyright.PENANA7zQHvCGZRK

"Ya we did," said TOP as he sat down and Seungri sat opposite him. "Your name again?"copyright protection50PENANAJeoY5sqHj354Please respect copyright.PENANAlnimtf0p5o

"Jehan."copyright protection50PENANA3ibb7zKwLQ54Please respect copyright.PENANA99v5djmDuJ

"Nice to meet you," said Seungri. "I'm...."copyright protection50PENANAe6hLR1H65N54Please respect copyright.PENANAePJlZZAPCH

"There is no need for introductions, Seungri," said Jehan. "I already know who you are."copyright protection50PENANAaP1zN72eOl54Please respect copyright.PENANAUY4ckyslXy

"Good," said Seungri. "So, what brings you here?"copyright protection50PENANAiSEu3M3OiP54Please respect copyright.PENANAJ6HfcVzyy3

"I just came here to visit. I met Zoey again and decided to have lunch together."copyright protection50PENANAEwWWhNYYU454Please respect copyright.PENANAiNS18S1JHD

"Oh." Seungri nodded his head.copyright protection50PENANAM5TNFHVHVK54Please respect copyright.PENANArCBwOV4hh1

"Ya," I said as I took a glass of water beside and drank from the cup.copyright protection50PENANA3eCIIGuLuM54Please respect copyright.PENANAP18xhktQT1

"Weren't you the same guy at the café with Zoey the other day?" TOP asked.copyright protection50PENANAB9ix5Ak4yf54Please respect copyright.PENANAUcOMeXFfHn

I almost spit out the 54Please respect copyright.PENANAS9ZtFNpJ5H
water in my mouth but I tried not to. I ended up choking instead. The 54Please respect copyright.PENANALVJUs0fVQ9
three men all turned to look at me and I hit my chest as my eyes begun 54Please respect copyright.PENANAXKlMxzKcOs
to water.copyright protection50PENANA8lk18ZJ4HE54Please respect copyright.PENANAzHBybhmA1s

"Are you okay, Zoey?" Seungri asked.copyright protection50PENANAOLSrtB7XmC54Please respect copyright.PENANAiMn1HQ1WMR

"Ya, I'm fine," I said. How did they figure out that Jehan was the person I met at the café?copyright protection50PENANAKXL2uRCPVb54Please respect copyright.PENANA5KBrw90hmP

"Yes, Zoey and I met at the café the first day I got here," said Jehan, answering TOP's question.copyright protection50PENANA53wp5FpOK754Please respect copyright.PENANAJVwluHCRiD

Jehan looked at me and I54Please respect copyright.PENANAjAqHB8xD4j
bet he was also wondering how the others could have figured out all 54Please respect copyright.PENANAua36BAgCSC
this. I gave him a look that said I had no idea how they did.copyright protection50PENANAtySmZmX7kk54Please respect copyright.PENANArByYX2GzUY

"May I ask what you're 54Please respect copyright.PENANAddzEUbMsOR
doing here?" I asked looking at TOP and then at Seungri. This was 54Please respect copyright.PENANAMj1QqDqGfi
getting frustrating and I didn't want them to be here anymore.copyright protection50PENANAJ4hv7MnKCj54Please respect copyright.PENANAjHURGRTmrN

"Oh, we just came here 54Please respect copyright.PENANAlF1VjW65oV
to see if we could shop for a few things," said Seungri. "Then we saw 54Please respect copyright.PENANAXafY0GCrnR
you as we were walking by and decided to say hi."copyright protection50PENANAVIns7s8xhT54Please respect copyright.PENANAKGzExgwrCY

"Hope we didn't interrupt you with anything," said TOP. "You two seemed to be having a serious conversation."copyright protection50PENANAELrw7rT4zd54Please respect copyright.PENANAfYDgTXd03B

"No, you didn't," said Jehan.copyright protection50PENANAoihGOotb8654Please respect copyright.PENANAW0MbZNSBff

Then a phone rang. It was Jehan's phone. We were all silent at the table as Jehan looked at his phone.copyright protection50PENANAu4ORxWkGtC54Please respect copyright.PENANAtZV2EtiaUV

"I think it's time to leave," said Jehan putting his phone on silent. "I have a business meeting to attend to."copyright protection50PENANAz8n1Futyz254Please respect copyright.PENANA99UMqNKDON

"Okay," I said. "We will meet some other time then before you leave for Paris."copyright protection50PENANALYl3F9r9lA54Please respect copyright.PENANAfKO2WNQOo5

"Yes, we will," said 54Please respect copyright.PENANA3R5ZUJscUn
Jehan as he pulled our his wallet and pulled the cash out to pay for the54Please respect copyright.PENANA84x2RYQBBE
bill, leaving it on the table. He quickly stood up from his chair.copyright protection50PENANAgQE4Ic12Sv54Please respect copyright.PENANApRpdTl0Kao

"We will stay in touch," he said as he looked at me and then turned to face the others. "It was nice meeting you."copyright protection50PENANAEsD2tiwWQ654Please respect copyright.PENANAQegVdaFGnA

"You too," said Seungri.copyright protection50PENANAZC5lFKv6UQ54Please respect copyright.PENANA4vEByvzo6b

Jehan gave a small smile54Please respect copyright.PENANA3v3sIWOIHY
and swiftly left the restaurant. I wanted to growl in frustration, but 54Please respect copyright.PENANA7xdnsrx88U
not in front of Seungri and TOP. When I thought I could finally give the54Please respect copyright.PENANAIcqmOYRomY
teddy bear away, these two show up. Why was this happening to me?copyright protection50PENANAHaHlfpygrr54Please respect copyright.PENANAzqtCSczHVh

"He seemed kind of nice," said Seungri. "Okay, let's go shopping."copyright protection50PENANAL6Tp8mHFjy54Please respect copyright.PENANAG3OTqhlYpt

"Are you up for it, Zoey?" TOP asked, as he looked at me.copyright protection50PENANALjaREPB9Ww54Please respect copyright.PENANAT7GjuuhmSE

"Sounds fun," I said as enthusiastically as I could.copyright protection50PENANA0DGHZV6ycy54Please respect copyright.PENANAks5O5Y1FFW

"Great, let's go," said Seungri and we all stood up the table and headed out of the restaurant.copyright protection50PENANAZYESnNf5sz54Please respect copyright.PENANAWm0Lfr2Bps

I wondered how I was 54Please respect copyright.PENANA4izKC4fUq8
going to have fun when I knew what I had come here for hadn't gone as 54Please respect copyright.PENANAzLAEzGCAmi
planned. And all that still meant that I still had a gun pointed to my 54Please respect copyright.PENANAxiEx3UY6vo
head until I give the teddy bear away.copyright protection50PENANADeSN5xDHHA54Please respect copyright.PENANAyAH8kjcAeC

This was just great! copyright protection50PENANAdHdUpdQwL2
