"Are you sure Sam will like it if you get her a gift?" I asked as I looked at G-Dragon.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi4dMGdBQFl
"Of course she will," he answered with a smile on his face, his eyes fixed on the road as he drove. "You know, she hasn't fully forgiven me yet."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡionAwpBpGO
I raised an eyebrow. "She hasn't?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuOw4I9JIzq
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPfmoBRv5Fb
I groaned as I stared up at the ceiling of the car. Sam could be really difficult sometimes.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq7adGOHriI
"I thought she meant it when she told me she forgave you," I said.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0kqA5yf3mi
"She really didn't. She gave me one weird explanation and I knew she didn't mean it."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFHOqPCHgnZ
I sulked. "Sam is one big fat liar."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjB8XgiWfX4
"A 'pretty' big fat liar," G-Dragon emphasised. "You got to admit, she's really good at it."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdCtruqhhmI
"One of her many talents." I smiled at him but it soon fell away.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡesLzvzE8tT
"So, what can I get her?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRilqN3uc8K
"I don't think getting her a gift will be enough for her to forgive you."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ9dqsz9wkG
"What do you mean? I thought ladies love gifts."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ12nn4ZvNa0
I shrugged my shoulders. "You're right on that part. But one thing you should know about Sam is that she's different. She's practically those girls people refer to as a 'rare species.'"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOBAJfgrWBB
G-Dragon burst out laughing and when he turned to look at me, he stopped. I wasn't laughing and I definitely wasn't joking.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1wgNxHVXiD
"Oh, you're serious," G-Dragon blushed as he fixed his eyes back on the road.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9Kvsth9SvC
"When I mean that, I mean she's special," I said with a smile. "Someone like her needs something extraordinary. So if you're buying her a gift, then it should be something that will mean something to her forever. Almost like that pendant."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNOSHnRB1uq
"So what do you think I should get her?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡntKcTFVtCX
"Mmmm, I don't know," I said as I thought for a bit. "That's why I think instead of buying her something, you should do something for her instead."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjO5Tec4En8
"Don't you think you should've told me that earlier?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn2LgyPMVyf
"I thought we were going shopping together, not getting Sam a gift."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWO2WCgIpzG
I could see him roll his eyes. "Sorry. I thought you got the catch that we were going for Sam's sake."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuVDGlafkaP
"Sam's sake or yours?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5yhPfHok9D
G-Dragon raised the corner of his lip into a smile. "Fine, my sake."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHzqwLtqxX6
"Don't worry. You brought the right person for this. We'll find Sam something and she will totally forgive you. But just in case she doesn't, you better do something memorable for her."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRFITralNT3
G-Dragon groaned. "Why is Sam so difficult? I mean, she may seem ordinary, but she's different."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5FSvQ2C3Is
"That's why she's special," I smirked. "She can make any guy break into a sweat just to impress her and she doesn't have to lift a finger. Just like you."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3d1oNYBDdQ
"Are you making fun of me?" G-Dragon didn't turn to look at me when he asked.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPwbrVLAgiX
"Maybe." I folded my arms with a smile and went on to look in front of me.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlu1Mh1NkK8
We soon found ourselves at Myeong-dong. I remember coming to this place for the first time after landing here in Korea. I think this was the best place to start looking for the perfect gift. I had to think of something real quick or else G-Dragon might just lose it. Though he did seem calm on the face, in the inside, I could tell he was losing it.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGSJeZme0Sw
As we got out of his car and looked over at the Myeong-dong shopping centre across the road, he asked:
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlNnNbPyR9t
"Have you thought of what we can buy for her?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9NbgUJGuEo
The two of us quickly crossed the road when it was clear. We were clearly jaywalking even when there were no cars around. We got to the other side safely. "Not yet," I answered.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi9lI7h7a3g
"I thought you already figured it out."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5IOh3zXmNZ
"Well, sorry. I'm not actually sidekick to know what Sam wants," I complained as the two of us walked towards the multi-storey building. "Trust me, even buying her a birthday gift is hard on my part."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtSsoyTEhFc
"You're her best friend."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1Tf2p8Gq4D
"Ya, but that doesn't mean she tells me what she wants like any other best friend would do." We soon walked through the wide open doors of the building finding ourselves in the lobby. "Sam isn't an open book where you can see everything. She's one where you've to read in between the lines to fully understand her."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPnkm08bt5V
"You think I don't know that?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfWU4xPC20x
"Of course you do," I said sarcastically. "And I think I know just what to get her."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdkU39z2tSO
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGVih3ucIcS
"Do you have any antique shop around here?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAQ35jG6s4b
G-Dragon and I soon went up the escalator. And he gave me a surprised look.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAYmj6M0Eo4
"Why would you want to go to an antique shop?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvFaM7TArAH
"If you want the perfect gift for Sam then an antique shop is the best place to start looking."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCbQr4jHu4e
G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me and I didn't say a word till we got to the top. We looked at each other as we got off the escalator and I could tell G-Dragon was contemplating over what I had just said.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbtl2OHJ0zz
"Are you sure we'll find a perfect gift for her there?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8HWE6yI5UI
"We've to try," I answered as I shrugged my shoulders. "Sam really likes things that are old, beautiful and has a special meaning."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH7pulpzESP
"You think so?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrWwAUetilz
"I know so. Now, can we go? Because you and I are capturing a lot of attention at the moment."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEPhEAEjiFj
G-Dragon and I looked around and we noticed people looking our way. Some even had their phones out to take pictures.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxUtcPBc7fZ
"Come on, I know just the place," he said as he started to walk away and I followed.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxmvClF15xN
As we passed by some stores, I couldn't help but look at things on display. As we were passing the Gucci store, I saw a fancy looking outfit on a mannequin. The mannequin wore a fancy black leather jacket, a fancy black vest, a tight black and gold stripe fitting skirt with black fancy high heeled shoes. The mannequin even held a black and gold fancy Gucci handbag. The gold metal Gucci logo on the bag gleamed brightly under the lights. I couldn't stop looking at the outfit. I was in love.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGmmkhGUz8j
"GD, look," I said as I held his arm and dragging him back, still looking at the mannequin on display.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhqp5FVO7ip
"What is it?" he asked.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHY42kSHBo0
"Have you seen that outfit?" I pointed at the display window.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYg177LkYdq
"Don't tell me you plan on buying that for Sam?" G-Dragon looked at me with an eyebrow raised.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNAzar8SAHB
"No, it's for me, silly. Come on."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT3CXSmo14v
I dragged him with me to the Gucci store and fifteen minutes later, I was walking out with a smile on my face and two shopping bags with the outfit in one and the Gucci handbag in another.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGJ5BHX7WvM
"For a moment, I thought you were helping me out with buying Sam a gift, not getting one yourself," said G-Dragon as he followed behind me.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0Mfivy6kgR
"Well, we did say we were coming here to shop, didn't we?" I asked as I gave him a smile.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrOotOHa976
"Okay, can we go now?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZy5RrPCMio
"Sure. Lead the way. Aww, I can't wait to show the girls what I just bought." I giggled as I looked in the shopping bag. "They would be so jealous."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIjiixtw7tB
"Whatever," G-Dragon muttered to himself as he led the way and I happily followed behind him.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWTXoMymXTr
We were soon approaching the antique store when something else again caught my eye.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvtIFOTu0U6
A few stores before the antique one was a store that had something behind the display window that made my mouth drop.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy32MnBnzi4
There were cardboard images of EXO. "The EXO." All nine of them. I couldn't help but look at each one of their faces. They looked so cool and so cute for cardboard images. Sometimes being a fangirl can be one heck of a serious problem because I couldn't take my eyes off of them.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9cTO4v33AO
"Zoey?" came G-Dragon's voice as he waved his hand close to my face.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAXs7a3KK9G
"Huh?" I turned to look at him.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv1pLHYcCm0
"Don't tell me you are fangirling over EXO?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlctRkqyvW5
"Is that a crime?" I asked, with a smile. I bet it was a stupid one. But I didn't care as I went back to looking at the cardboard images. "Looks like they will be having a concert soon." I went to looking at the cardboard announcement right next to the EXO images. It was written in Korean but there was a translation right after it.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKHf2WnDUrd
"Zoey, focus!" He snapped his fingers in front of my face. "We came here for something, not EXO."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ868g5d0AT5
"Okay, but, I want to go to their concert," I said as I looked at G-Dragon with a whining tune in my voice.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡARibGjGuEx
He shrugged his shoulders and it could clearly show on his face that he was really annoyed. "So?" he asked.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0vNbawxubl
"Is it possible for me to get a ticket?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpwEygdkzVA
"Have you clearly forgotten what we came here for?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDwkCfIkJ0S
I looked at him as I tried to remember but my mind was completely filled with images of EXO. That was strange. What were we here for again?
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjVQx4O4lQU
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGZ3hQPE8Ef
I almost jumped in the air with fright and almost dropping the bags in my hands. I realised I was still right where I stood facing G-Dragon. He folded his arms.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcEoTJe1pNJ
"You're daydreaming," he said.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDkctvsXlzq
"No, I wasn't." I blushed as I shook my head.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8wgDxJcQ2h
"You're dreamy eyed and lost in the clouds. You're thinking of EXO, aren't you?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4sqlE7cOZ6
"No." I lied again.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhm5eo2bonR
"Really? Then why are we here?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkpN2UnVE7D
"Ummmm." I scratched my head, closed my eyes and started to stump my foot hard on the floor. People would have thought of me as a human with a dog attitude. I stopped what I was doing as my eyes flew open.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHCCHvbJZCZ
"We came here to find Sam a gift," I said proudly, snapping my fingers.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡifx8sU4P5X
G-Dragon looked at me and he looked at his cool fancy Daniel Klein wristwatch saying, "you just took four minutes to answer that question."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdmlx92P7UI
I felt my eyes could pop out of their sockets any moment. "For real?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7FwEwgbA9N
"I asked you the same question two times and you took four minutes to answer."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpTIWvEEsbW
"Oh." I felt really embarrassed as I scratched my head. "Looks like I was clearly daydreaming."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBRXk6iOs4X
"Can we think about this later and go get Sam a gift first?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvBezRTt7zI
"Oh, okay," I said with a sigh as I looked at the cardboard images. "There will be time for that next time."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1SNwrn3DCP
I noticed the words below the cardboard images which said, "We Are One. We Are EXO." I ended up smiling to myself.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfzLlFarOdQ
"Come on, let's go," said G-Dragon as he started off.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1tTLHJWC0c
I was about to follow G-Dragon when I noticed something out of the corner of my eye. I noticed a reflection of someone on the display window where the EXO cardboard images stood. I stopped and looked at the window, but I didn't see anyone unusual. All I saw were people's reflection walking behind me and they all looked to be minding their own business.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1u9LRj9nZx
I shrugged my shoulders brushing off what I might have seen and I quickly caught up with G-Dragon who was already at the antique shop and staring at things on display.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJMOtdvTD79
"Are you sure we can find something in here?" G-Dragon asked when I stood right beside him.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw8hMnlMzn0
"We've to go inside to check, don't we?" I suggested.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ55B9ygRqeE
As I turned to start heading into the store, I hadn't noticed that someone was standing right beside me, also looking at the items through the display window. He had a pair of expensive shades on and for some reason, I couldn't help but look at him. Must be his hair that was dyed in a striking red colour.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv2XR3R3l4V
"I noticed that you have been looking at me for a while," said the guy still looking at the display window.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBdxOKrOzLX
"Huh?" I was a little confused. "But I just started staring at you now."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzMMu1y3MZM
He turned to look at me and removed his shades. My jaw suddenly dropped.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNz53ohSvKo
"I noticed you were looking at the EXO cardboard images," said Chanyeol with a gorgeous smile. "Thats what I meant."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE5FgrAmgJi
"I...I....I," I stammered as I tried to say something straight. But I couldn't. I felt like I was going to have a heart attack.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDR3IOfuuAe
"You're Zoey, right?" he asked. "I was pretty sure it was you but I had to be close to look at you and confirm it."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsLwv8vrgIr
"You....me.....I.....you're....you're....," I gulped as I pointed a finger at him.
My eyes bulged. "EXO."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfEelCFmUDO
"Ya, and you're Zoey from The Toxins."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzsdO0XnKAG
I felt like I was going to faint. This felt so surreal. Chanyeol was standing right in front of me. And he knew who I was. He knew ME! I wanted to scream and shout like I usually do whenever I see my favourite celebrities. But this time I couldn't and I didn't know why.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMPVAJ4jw5I
"Oh, no," said G-Dragon behind me. "This cannot be happening."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzltUpYtIwV
Chanyeol waved happily at G-Dragon and I continued to look on at his handsome face. I felt like I was floating in the clouds looking at him.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMBQwuvcW1V
"Zoey?" G-Dragon called out to me though it felt like his voice was a million miles away.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXWHzXz65I2
"Mmmm." I muttered with a smile as I tilted my head to the side, still staring at Chanyeol.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcQlHT129qP
"I think we better start going. Don't you think?"
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAmLQeykBsY
"No." I giggled as I looked at G-Dragon.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7jaHMw9vHL
"This is ridiculous," he muttered.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNXevV6JjXW
Just as I turned to look at Chanyeol, I noticed someone coming behind him. When I tilted my head a little more, I almost fell to the floor when I noticed who was coming our way.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqCAox6CRiu
"Chan!" Kai called out to Chanyeol as he came towards us. Chanyeol turned to look behind him.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1OOXm0wDTD
"Kai?" I went around Chanyeol and started to approach Kai.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyDveK0vj6C
Kai stopped upon seeing me and he looked totally surprised, just as I was with seeing him.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdMudJhXCwX
"Oh, it really is you," said Kai.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGgkaBRY0O2
"I told you it was Zoey," said Chanyeol.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEkTMIu2ap3
"Wow," I said as my eyes never left Kai's face. "You're even way hotter in person."
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvb4AfvoY1I
Chanyeol laughed behind me and I could already imagine G-Dragon shaking his head, probably annoyed. I could clearly see Kai blushing over my comment and he was speechless.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYmsMLIIkbn
Just as things couldn't get any better, the rest of EXO suddenly appeared behind Kai, coming out of a store. At first, they looked left and right down the hall, obviously looking for Chanyeol and Kai. When they spotted them, their mouths dropped upon seeing me. And I, smiled at them and waved.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw7a9X9ChV1
They didn't say anything but looked at me the whole time and I looked back at them. This definitely didn't feel real. Just minutes ago, I was looking at cardboard images of them and now they were standing before me in real life. It's like the cardboard images just came to life themselves.
184Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNYbxDzcxZd
Just after the thought of that, I soon discovered my scream as I dropped the bags I was carrying and jumped, feeling like the happiest person in the world.
