"Are you sure Sam will like it if you get her a gift?" I asked as I looked at G-Dragon.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwOCPCoJ5fb
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlo6al7plSP
I raised an eyebrow. "She hasn't?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1Ruk9iiTII
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTHTntnMCtM
I groaned as I stared up at the ceiling of the car. Sam could be really difficult sometimes.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIH7fjigpif
"I thought she meant it when she told me she forgave you," I said.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAlzCyH350s
"She really didn't. She gave me one weird explanation and I knew she didn't mean it."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6Dz52ovW9N
I sulked. "Sam is one big fat liar."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS1PzVCJDQY
"A 'pretty' big fat liar," G-Dragon emphasised. "You got to admit, she's really good at it."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡacE2INapqy
"One of her many talents." I smiled at him but it soon fell away.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ63mL832DKm
"So, what can I get her?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6VOowesCMC
"I don't think getting her a gift will be enough for her to forgive you."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv9F6VOMhs0
"What do you mean? I thought ladies love gifts."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdxSTr4OESA
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.'"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5PyP3hqUay
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIwHQTtr4j3
"Oh, you're serious," G-Dragon blushed as he fixed his eyes back on the road.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ23NfT0b3CK
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzi7t3CB0Wl
"So what do you think I should get her?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXMgrnhaOju
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf6Os5yzZVV
"Don't you think you should've told me that earlier?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqoXLWKg3Zu
"I thought we were going shopping together, not getting Sam a gift."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡevPBUKjSBH
I could see him roll his eyes. "Sorry. I thought you got the catch that we were going for Sam's sake."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB2ihkY3wzc
"Sam's sake or yours?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjuthRQdRkE
G-Dragon raised the corner of his lip into a smile. "Fine, my sake."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqs7LSQlWey
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk3J5NOhBPI
G-Dragon groaned. "Why is Sam so difficult? I mean, she may seem ordinary, but she's different."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBCTQGyv21s
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1GGUDawesN
"Are you making fun of me?" G-Dragon didn't turn to look at me when he asked.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLsbkk0XY5H
"Maybe." I folded my arms with a smile and went on to look in front of me.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYGYfLtjhX9
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYBKHju06cz
As we got out of his car and looked over at the Myeong-dong shopping centre across the road, he asked:
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl33H0On8nK
"Have you thought of what we can buy for her?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd7jy18rpiU
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwcgA5ZTbcY
"I thought you already figured it out."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0zgtBr3MhH
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwxrTGgCdMI
"You're her best friend."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4a19R55Pai
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQh1ABAYI5i
"You think I don't know that?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEVo3lGVGz1
"Of course you do," I said sarcastically. "And I think I know just what to get her."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv1NsQbTcKY
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5sX1raocXY
"Do you have any antique shop around here?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE45zPJF39U
G-Dragon and I soon went up the escalator. And he gave me a surprised look.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa9FQ4QAeWd
"Why would you want to go to an antique shop?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYO8Bcm46lT
"If you want the perfect gift for Sam then an antique shop is the best place to start looking."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEoEopkb7i4
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTTqBfrumck
"Are you sure we'll find a perfect gift for her there?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvATDkHbimZ
"We've to try," I answered as I shrugged my shoulders. "Sam really likes things that are old, beautiful and has a special meaning."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYD7UwvtiRT
"You think so?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVImlkeWubD
"I know so. Now, can we go? Because you and I are capturing a lot of attention at the moment."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo4wsR4O7Rs
G-Dragon and I looked around and we noticed people looking our way. Some even had their phones out to take pictures.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCVlS5Go5Nh
"Come on, I know just the place," he said as he started to walk away and I followed.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuZP427bjf1
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOSr0vWMxJW
"GD, look," I said as I held his arm and dragging him back, still looking at the mannequin on display.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl1Y4WD4Yeg
"What is it?" he asked.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbdeZOrK8ek
"Have you seen that outfit?" I pointed at the display window.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgvLQ7RoAFp
"Don't tell me you plan on buying that for Sam?" G-Dragon looked at me with an eyebrow raised.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6n6TpxZ9zr
"No, it's for me, silly. Come on."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi9gIE0Z1ZD
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK0OCuIWzBc
"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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXzOCd45UYw
"Well, we did say we were coming here to shop, didn't we?" I asked as I gave him a smile.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEPqObXYpu6
"Okay, can we go now?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWUW2JSSZcz
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnweArFSx3z
"Whatever," G-Dragon muttered to himself as he led the way and I happily followed behind him.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQqz7h8Nfuy
We were soon approaching the antique store when something else again caught my eye.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMsGEU7tMD0
A few stores before the antique one was a store that had something behind the display window that made my mouth drop.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRixdSklXXS
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡen04RXM75m
"Zoey?" came G-Dragon's voice as he waved his hand close to my face.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8nXI6Nw7Ec
"Huh?" I turned to look at him.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ22dMOZex2c
"Don't tell me you are fangirling over EXO?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmFxdfYIYdq
"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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcPmuHVRIaW
"Zoey, focus!" He snapped his fingers in front of my face. "We came here for something, not EXO."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtpd5C3KgEC
"Okay, but, I want to go to their concert," I said as I looked at G-Dragon with a whining tune in my voice.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiGbAyG1tq8
He shrugged his shoulders and it could clearly show on his face that he was really annoyed. "So?" he asked.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3r9kuI0cJS
"Is it possible for me to get a ticket?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3rHKC3zQX9
"Have you clearly forgotten what we came here for?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb7q0pQa6eh
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?
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1j7fMl9Dq7
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3mRLhOZHlw
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfSxTfYJesb
"You're daydreaming," he said.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMHrX6cHxuX
"No, I wasn't." I blushed as I shook my head.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGjHIA9kgNP
"You're dreamy eyed and lost in the clouds. You're thinking of EXO, aren't you?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFxJ8QVVrv3
"No." I lied again.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7j4Hn1LbBn
"Really? Then why are we here?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpJxUORal39
"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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ0LIWAL5j9
"We came here to find Sam a gift," I said proudly, snapping my fingers.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHynbVYQQjb
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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfO1VzvYw8T
I felt my eyes could pop out of their sockets any moment. "For real?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7qJwkMAnwX
"I asked you the same question two times and you took four minutes to answer."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCmbb53oxKH
"Oh." I felt really embarrassed as I scratched my head. "Looks like I was clearly daydreaming."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2xM4X7smnO
"Can we think about this later and go get Sam a gift first?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡarGbfoddcE
"Oh, okay," I said with a sigh as I looked at the cardboard images. "There will be time for that next time."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ9Vqf8qKqr
I noticed the words below the cardboard images which said, "We Are One. We Are EXO." I ended up smiling to myself.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiZilMgwl68
"Come on, let's go," said G-Dragon as he started off.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL4H9ucnOfZ
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUd4s2KLXTu
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZAf4KlTwmx
"Are you sure we can find something in here?" G-Dragon asked when I stood right beside him.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLrUHodlEeN
"We've to go inside to check, don't we?" I suggested.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6CBuGFzPFx
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIuciZ4iTQ4
"I noticed that you have been looking at me for a while," said the guy still looking at the display window.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrH9XBgF8CD
"Huh?" I was a little confused. "But I just started staring at you now."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0F290QWAAo
He turned to look at me and removed his shades. My jaw suddenly dropped.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOL8YlvtLn2
"I noticed you were looking at the EXO cardboard images," said Chanyeol with a gorgeous smile. "Thats what I meant."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEXIeGJQGug
"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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA1Gn28mzMh
"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."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT5HNyTQWcv
"You....me.....I.....you're....you're....," I gulped as I pointed a finger at him.
My eyes bulged. "EXO."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFnebF7Hbzu
"Ya, and you're Zoey from The Toxins."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9hCQ4rVuIK
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaeUvnt3Kia
"Oh, no," said G-Dragon behind me. "This cannot be happening."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2OKDSjiSiA
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMCInFqPjN0
"Zoey?" G-Dragon called out to me though it felt like his voice was a million miles away.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlu0IzCOB0U
"Mmmm." I muttered with a smile as I tilted my head to the side, still staring at Chanyeol.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9mw86L35NT
"I think we better start going. Don't you think?"
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyqTEZjKrlU
"No." I giggled as I looked at G-Dragon.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDTciBHOauT
"This is ridiculous," he muttered.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWagGGDPl5f
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYGKuXDcy5j
"Chan!" Kai called out to Chanyeol as he came towards us. Chanyeol turned to look behind him.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3EHvrgYpNq
"Kai?" I went around Chanyeol and started to approach Kai.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS2anzm2a12
Kai stopped upon seeing me and he looked totally surprised, just as I was with seeing him.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKJIVKmzJTk
"Oh, it really is you," said Kai.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRPtWs0XEVQ
"I told you it was Zoey," said Chanyeol.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU1pb2bxPN4
"Wow," I said as my eyes never left Kai's face. "You're even way hotter in person."
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg8xFsbXNSg
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdKhEroBmzo
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvujWEpu161
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.
468Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0z454c5iW0
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.ns126.96.36.199da2
