"Are you sure Sam will like it if you get her a gift?" I asked as I looked at G-Dragon.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoNXxAHdXJR
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx73J7iom0z
I raised an eyebrow. "She hasn't?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡStTfHW9wlE
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2Kr0h1HuZq
I groaned as I stared up at the ceiling of the car. Sam could be really difficult sometimes.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmxxpgEIE0I
"I thought she meant it when she told me she forgave you," I said.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdSc78T4hqp
"She really didn't. She gave me one weird explanation and I knew she didn't mean it."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWs9nsro9Vn
I sulked. "Sam is one big fat liar."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAhU7HbMpQN
"A 'pretty' big fat liar," G-Dragon emphasised. "You got to admit, she's really good at it."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ84GkcPdg7E
"One of her many talents." I smiled at him but it soon fell away.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF36PqzgPJc
"So, what can I get her?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcju7rbjeA9
"I don't think getting her a gift will be enough for her to forgive you."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2IdI3pyhFF
"What do you mean? I thought ladies love gifts."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVlI2b9BrYl
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.'"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEbE8i5kCkV
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLmDZ4HpDY5
"Oh, you're serious," G-Dragon blushed as he fixed his eyes back on the road.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiUr1WCby39
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTIlyQEEagY
"So what do you think I should get her?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ51kJ1prq2p
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvljXngzyOD
"Don't you think you should've told me that earlier?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIIl3hbIVmY
"I thought we were going shopping together, not getting Sam a gift."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTs0ec1EDrG
I could see him roll his eyes. "Sorry. I thought you got the catch that we were going for Sam's sake."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3X2mUpDuYr
"Sam's sake or yours?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7HasLrEtn1
G-Dragon raised the corner of his lip into a smile. "Fine, my sake."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrhuswGtakV
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQnSTKNjnhh
G-Dragon groaned. "Why is Sam so difficult? I mean, she may seem ordinary, but she's different."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPoZZRKrveP
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxG618CHBM2
"Are you making fun of me?" G-Dragon didn't turn to look at me when he asked.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwDppw9dPxv
"Maybe." I folded my arms with a smile and went on to look in front of me.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7mU7mLSOh6
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDONKQVmxx9
As we got out of his car and looked over at the Myeong-dong shopping centre across the road, he asked:
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA4NZuk9HaG
"Have you thought of what we can buy for her?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdh27ppThda
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnQZaAP6XnD
"I thought you already figured it out."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7XIUXcf7Up
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN7HQe6f7nt
"You're her best friend."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiKjhVU72Sv
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFZtoUqA9xu
"You think I don't know that?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzlBgcPmsXJ
"Of course you do," I said sarcastically. "And I think I know just what to get her."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVfufxp9Er2
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ971DvW366B
"Do you have any antique shop around here?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAFXcVa2hCZ
G-Dragon and I soon went up the escalator. And he gave me a surprised look.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1yevNLVXqn
"Why would you want to go to an antique shop?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZAu1d0Yh74
"If you want the perfect gift for Sam then an antique shop is the best place to start looking."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTIKQUF0WXD
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVYcat0WpYm
"Are you sure we'll find a perfect gift for her there?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMYXhZaiYsp
"We've to try," I answered as I shrugged my shoulders. "Sam really likes things that are old, beautiful and has a special meaning."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3l7Nb1tcYq
"You think so?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQUp34T31i1
"I know so. Now, can we go? Because you and I are capturing a lot of attention at the moment."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn4ZlmZvEXX
G-Dragon and I looked around and we noticed people looking our way. Some even had their phones out to take pictures.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ31jbOudhHb
"Come on, I know just the place," he said as he started to walk away and I followed.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIy58Ba2Ebk
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGzpFULFqqD
"GD, look," I said as I held his arm and dragging him back, still looking at the mannequin on display.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡntEGEtbRLT
"What is it?" he asked.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3us8C3jFIu
"Have you seen that outfit?" I pointed at the display window.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZp3p5XbKnB
"Don't tell me you plan on buying that for Sam?" G-Dragon looked at me with an eyebrow raised.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoL52sKwECh
"No, it's for me, silly. Come on."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxFL0Oo373M
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB3bFtgDF10
"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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgpMlse6YSI
"Well, we did say we were coming here to shop, didn't we?" I asked as I gave him a smile.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgqn1qbquju
"Okay, can we go now?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhVytA1KdGL
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeXb1jDfpC8
"Whatever," G-Dragon muttered to himself as he led the way and I happily followed behind him.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7SzuU0Gkv0
We were soon approaching the antique store when something else again caught my eye.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPNVngwo1K5
A few stores before the antique one was a store that had something behind the display window that made my mouth drop.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMZ2Y0lBgKd
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpR5Ym0Z3ku
"Zoey?" came G-Dragon's voice as he waved his hand close to my face.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3aiZxzwVAg
"Huh?" I turned to look at him.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0nf3lgoWw9
"Don't tell me you are fangirling over EXO?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaV1gUngTrB
"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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡouLGuif0eQ
"Zoey, focus!" He snapped his fingers in front of my face. "We came here for something, not EXO."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhfdxiyNHvk
"Okay, but, I want to go to their concert," I said as I looked at G-Dragon with a whining tune in my voice.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQFfRWafc3H
He shrugged his shoulders and it could clearly show on his face that he was really annoyed. "So?" he asked.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOscz9GSpH7
"Is it possible for me to get a ticket?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfYmsvF0jmv
"Have you clearly forgotten what we came here for?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDdbT573lk7
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?
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ28zeIIUA8C
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHnA4Q5JRo6
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn2jyVpFYK0
"You're daydreaming," he said.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5M8F1QoWrw
"No, I wasn't." I blushed as I shook my head.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy8U8cKeWBD
"You're dreamy eyed and lost in the clouds. You're thinking of EXO, aren't you?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2YFmxALdzv
"No." I lied again.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdEiljkcHgD
"Really? Then why are we here?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeOL8XYSbUu
"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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPXtuj054dE
"We came here to find Sam a gift," I said proudly, snapping my fingers.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAqjTMCdYku
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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡByinHglAsg
I felt my eyes could pop out of their sockets any moment. "For real?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4heyMxzSBM
"I asked you the same question two times and you took four minutes to answer."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwcdQ50tjYN
"Oh." I felt really embarrassed as I scratched my head. "Looks like I was clearly daydreaming."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNAm6X4njEP
"Can we think about this later and go get Sam a gift first?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAJ7OhUlQMX
"Oh, okay," I said with a sigh as I looked at the cardboard images. "There will be time for that next time."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDiaR8gRCzQ
I noticed the words below the cardboard images which said, "We Are One. We Are EXO." I ended up smiling to myself.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpnqMuoQRIv
"Come on, let's go," said G-Dragon as he started off.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHieO7wItnu
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr0NBSWSJys
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAYP1KjpBb8
"Are you sure we can find something in here?" G-Dragon asked when I stood right beside him.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6SqlGySp1f
"We've to go inside to check, don't we?" I suggested.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTtgH48DXSc
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpsaetVyTxK
"I noticed that you have been looking at me for a while," said the guy still looking at the display window.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1ECsZj1RI2
"Huh?" I was a little confused. "But I just started staring at you now."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7BvnjAvWxn
He turned to look at me and removed his shades. My jaw suddenly dropped.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9XQjbkfKeM
"I noticed you were looking at the EXO cardboard images," said Chanyeol with a gorgeous smile. "Thats what I meant."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡufq7IqqJh8
"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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMoKiM3Th0r
"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."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF9ovtAQIl4
"You....me.....I.....you're....you're....," I gulped as I pointed a finger at him.
My eyes bulged. "EXO."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvPkVW3lnMD
"Ya, and you're Zoey from The Toxins."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvz2gSOkL6l
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdLvBhYc7Hx
"Oh, no," said G-Dragon behind me. "This cannot be happening."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡccmw7jAtHn
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7dW9tOYOA4
"Zoey?" G-Dragon called out to me though it felt like his voice was a million miles away.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9NPEp7CBfj
"Mmmm." I muttered with a smile as I tilted my head to the side, still staring at Chanyeol.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8rwvYDPy7w
"I think we better start going. Don't you think?"
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVeJSodHm1h
"No." I giggled as I looked at G-Dragon.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqa5gOunr6D
"This is ridiculous," he muttered.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLe4hJ3VzC2
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5xhOqF1713
"Chan!" Kai called out to Chanyeol as he came towards us. Chanyeol turned to look behind him.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpsduI2Z6t5
"Kai?" I went around Chanyeol and started to approach Kai.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJejOw3RrCt
Kai stopped upon seeing me and he looked totally surprised, just as I was with seeing him.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuI1Mwrryzt
"Oh, it really is you," said Kai.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBYVPsDRsKk
"I told you it was Zoey," said Chanyeol.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxtzRh6U9yx
"Wow," I said as my eyes never left Kai's face. "You're even way hotter in person."
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC2fEPM6glF
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJWDEM6iDy2
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY5vxXNDSXb
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.
73Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpAeEe3rkkM
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.
