Just as Taeyang and I were about to get out of the car, Daesung and Seungri appeared, coming out of the apartment building. I called them a few minutes ago before we parked outside telling them to come help us out with the groceries.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYixY2B3b00
"Hey, guys," said Seungri, cheerfully as we got out of the car. "Did you guys get a lot of stuff?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhsrqoDyMaK
"Ummmm, we did, actually," I answered as I tucked a strand of my hair behind my ear and closed the car door.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXaUWvDpHr5
"We better start taking these things up," said Taeyang as he went to get some of the grocery bags at the passenger's seat.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡai1enxxiUQ
"You don't worry about the bags, Sam," said Daesung. "We'll take care of it from here. You must be exhausted."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXYqyZG5bQh
"Oh, no, it's fine," I said. "I wouldn't mind carrying some at all."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKSkHCWWsw0
Seungri went to open the other side of the door to the passenger's side and found Christine seated there staring at her phone.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOvrlYoKwfO
"Oh, I completely forgot that Christine went along with you guys," said Seungri.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmWou0MXb3V
"Christine," I called out to her. "Can you please get out of the car so that we can get the groceries?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrTcbTe9Xiv
Christine didn't respond and kept on looking at her phone as though I hadn't said a word with a weird crazy smile on her face. She had been like that for a really long time now. Seungri and Daesung looked on at her while I rolled my eyes and Taeyang on the other side had already carried some grocery bags in his hands and was ready to go up to the apartment.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBLgFzA8Vlf
"What's wrong with her?" Seungri asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtpQOSMGwcH
"She's been like that since the whole way here," Taeyang answered.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnSCJfC0xtB
"Mind telling us why?" Daesung asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGOIPBC9zK1
I looked over at Taeyang and he also looked back at me. I didn't know what to say about what happened at the store. Although it was easy enough to spit it out, for some reason, I couldn't.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡodwNAmmSn2
Seungri and Daesung looked at the both of us, wondering what was going on.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXisNjhfAUL
"Aren't you two going to say anything or are you going to just stare at each other?" Daesung asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ11J5VEInov
I scratched my head. "Well, it's complicated."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYquUz5plmd
Seungri looked on at Christine and bent over to stare at her more closely. He waved a hand across her face. She didn't budge or react at all. She was as still as a statue.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVkEhYL1qnF
"What's wrong with her?" Seungri asked again as he looked at me. "Because right now, she's looking like a lunatic and that worries me."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsDW0tTkOMF
"Sam will tell you," said Taeyang. "She'll explain it better than I ever will."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcJhi3eiMxU
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxIgvnh0CC1
I soon realised that it was no use stopping Taeyang as he walked up the stairs to the entrance and entered the lobby. I looked on as he went. Now, I was all alone to give an explanation to Daesung and Seungri. A pretty dumb one if you ask me.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMuzoPxgs0g
"What's going on, Sam?" Daesung asked. I turned to look at both him and Seungri. "One thing's for sure, something happened to Christine for her to be in this state and you're going to tell us why."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTWgrIhfOlU
I opened my mouth to say something, but I couldn't. I went on to look at Christine and she was still smiling like a fool, staring at her phone and tapping on it, doing whatever. Only Taeyang and I knew why she was behaving like this. It seemed unfair to keep the others in the dark. They were bound to find out eventually.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDaGn92igII
"Okay, fine, I'll tell you," I said. "But can we get her out of the car first?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw3j8d1Srjq
"Christine?" Seungri called out to her as he held her shoulder and shook her.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0GhjAA2FqS
"Mmmmm," Christine muttered as she finally took her eyes off her phone and stared up at Seungri.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2i0bWGYT5Z
I folded my arms. "Well, that was easy," I said. "She wasn't responding to either Taeyang or me the whole way back here."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCEddx9hPd8
"Wait? We're here already?" Christine asked as she looked at her surrounding outside the car. She seemed very surprised.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU7xJ5lH7LT
"You never noticed, Christine?" Daesung asked, with a surprised look on his face.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjs8Vf4kJ5N
"How could she notice where she is if all she could ever look at the entire time on her phone was BTS?" I said.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ73OTGGDrBh
Seungri and Daesung both turned to look at me at the same time, taking in what I said. Christine sighed at the mention of BTS and went all dreamy eyed.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwMpGRB7SsT
I didn't want to say it out in a rude way but I just couldn't stand the sight of Christine looking like a loony any more. Getting her into the car the time we were done with grocery shopping was more than enough to put me on edge. It was worse off when she didn't say anything to either Taeyang and I in the car.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwyzQD8YN1d
"Ooh," Seungri gave a small laugh. "So, she met BTS. That explains everything."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgUy5BmHTjM
"Sorry, if in any way I sounded a little rude," I said.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzCwNsAL9GE
"No biggie," said Daesung. "At least you don't look as stupid as Christine is right now."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUsdnfC3Vmv
The three of us both stared at Christine hoping she would react to the comment but she didn't say a word. This time, she was up in the clouds and smiling to herself. Well, her beautiful utopia was about to get ruined and I was glad that I would be taking the liberty of doing so.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjoBiECLyUp
"Come on, Christine," I said as I grabbed her by the elbow and pulled her out of the car. She almost fell to the ground but she was quick enough to balance her body with her legs.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ28inNroUr
"Whoa, Sam," she said looking a bit surprised at how much strength I put in to drag her out. "Be gentle, please."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD1tuPjwr2D
"You should be glad I didn't slap you in the face because that wouldn't be as gentle as what I have done now," I said.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6IOagAVZY7
"I never knew you had that much strength, Sam," said Seungri with a grin on his face.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡagL89o9Es2
"She should have been a boxer if you ask me," said Christine as she sulked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNmIiy7rkSP
"Then I would just knock your teeth out so that you wouldn't be able to smile for BTS or for anyone for that matter, ever again," I said.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKXv3Km9p1u
"I'll keep my mouth shut," said Christine as she covered her mouth with her free hand.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0ghqtSrfw8
"Okay, let's go," I said still holding her elbow. "I'm afraid if I leave you alone, you might just head to someone else's apartment."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFg07IogfG2
"I'm fine, Sam. I swear. You don't have to drag me around like a little kid, you know?" Christine protested.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtLzxYPs26u
I didn't listen to her as I dragged her with me anyway. I could hear Daesung and Seungri chuckle to themselves as Christine and I went up to the entrance and found ourselves in the lobby, heading for the elevator.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlCzEACrwXM
The two of us entered BigBang's apartment through the already open door. Taeyang was in the kitchen packing what we bought while my brothers and TOP were in the living room like I expected they would. My brothers were still playing video games as TOP watched them play.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQMJa6843Wm
TOP looked our way as he noticed us come in and so did my brothers who soon paused the game.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRMLS29XcNS
"What took you girls so long?" TOP asked. "Taeyang said something was wrong with Christine." He looked at Christine. "Are you okay?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkgseMT9BPX
"I wouldn't be asking her that question because she's not," I said as I let go of her elbow. She winced and held it dearly.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnvEl370MK4
"You really hurt me, Sam," Christine whined. "If you weren't my cousin, I would sue you."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuiHCwQp40c
"Well, I wouldn't be the one getting sued today after what you just did at the grocery store," I said with my hands on my hips.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU8VGRMVSj2
"What did she do?" Daniel asked, turning his body fully to look at us.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWCVCCPZmMc
Taeyang laughed behind us in the kitchen. "It was so funny," he said.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFmbVrQA4Wj
"I'll let Christine tell you," I said as I turned around to head towards the kitchen. "All this has made me pretty thirsty."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWnzMfcsgoo
"So, what happened?" Mike asked Christine as I went to the fridge and took out a jug of water and went to the cabinet to get a glass.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEdDUOOAPet
"Please, don't ask," said Christine. I saw her join the others in the living room and slept on the couch opposite from where TOP sat with her hand covering her eyes. "It's so embarrassing now that I think about it."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr5141eRqNB
"You can never do anything embarrassing," said TOP. "You, Christine are too sweet for that."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLATMVk6DeR
"I beg to differ," I said, the glass close to my lips as I took a sip of water. Taeyang who stood beside me laughed even more.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5N2KtiVAux
"Ya, there are times when Christine could be crazy," said Daniel. "But not as much as Zoey, of course."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGn2NyS4QqK
"This time, she went overboard," I said.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtvXOLcCiVf
"Almost like Zoey?" Mike asked as he looked at me.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL5uiDLkqAy
"Yep. But not as much as Zoey of course."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ182Wk2KX1x
Mike looked at Christine who still slept on the couch like some person who had had a long night of partying and was completely wasted.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbI0nePoa2G
"Tell us, Christine!" Mike insisted. "Now I'm curious."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrq6xrjLH5Z
Just as Mike was insisting, Daesung and Seungri came in through the open door carrying grocery bags.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡahdY3lFV23
"Hey, Christine!" Seungri called out to her as he came into the kitchen with Daesung. "Tell us what happened when you met BTS?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaiCVYsxLHw
"Oh, goodness," said Christine as she sat up to look at Seungri. "Seungri!"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhxvcmqTiMw
"What?" Seungri had already put the grocery bags on the kitchen table and shrugged his shoulders. "I was just asking."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNAwtqrdutS
Christine groaned out loudly in frustration as she fell back onto the couch. Mike and Daniel looked on at her, both their mouths agape.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIO9xdkgn5F
"You met BTS?" Daniel asked not believing it.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9BX3pAm1ND
"Oh, now I see why she's so upset," said Seungri. "Hope she isn't mad."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP1itqoXaOm
I patted Seungri on the shoulder. "No, she isn't. Don't worry about it," I said. I went to rinse the glass in the sink.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdEzHGnjlB6
"Christine, come on," said Mike. "Say something. How was it meeting BTS?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY8If2qX6yU
"Don't ask," she said as she stared at the ceiling. "It was embarrassing."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBFhjHrI22Q
"Really embarrassing," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd0Dvg2pp4u
"Please, not another word," said Christine as she sat up and held her head in her hands.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHB339iSZzf
"Why?" I asked. "As much as it was so embarassing, you would have been in serious trouble with what you did."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9Yf5VJFmaH
"What did she do?" Daesung asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzhIVQGpQHq
I went to join the others in the living room, sitting next to Christine. I started to tell them how I unexpectedly bumped heads with Jimin, in the process, meeting the rest of BTS who also came to do some shopping.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9qhohNb0oI
"Let me guess," said Mike. "Christine screamed like a lunatic and ran towards BTS, right?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBqs3Lnalqs
"Yep, but in the process, she caused quite a havoc," I said as looked at Christine.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡScaSmzYEkJ
"Don't say anything more, Sam," said Christine as she clapped her hands together. "I beg you!"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLRpmTVOcL2
"She almost killed a few people, if that's how I can put it," said Taeyang.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi3Aa0tHyCM
"How?" Daniel and Mike asked at the same time.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ28iDD9RyKD
"I bumped into a lady while I was running and she ended up hitting a guy with her cart. The cart pushed the guy and he almost found himself in those refrigerators," Christine answered.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6JRhuaN1eO
"Well, I'm glad you admitted what you did," I said with a smirk.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEiHPNouTDB
"I wish I was there to see that," said TOP with a smile.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ47URRcNbdF
"That's not the only thing she did," said Taeyang.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQBbRMLk3Jd
"What else did you do, Christine?" Daesung asked sounding surprised.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCxssrcOEsA
"Let's just say, the guy in the refrigerator wasn't the only havoc I caused," said Christine with a wince afterwards. "I kind of got everyone in the aisle all pushed aside and trolleys bumping into each other causing some kind of trolley traffic."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfyHRLLizw1
"All that, just for BTS," said Daniel rolling his eyes.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlLavR2XauL
"Hey, if you were in my shoes, you wouldn't be saying that!" Christine snapped at him. She closed her eyes and cried, "it was so embarrassing! I bet they think I'm some crazy person."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEtAqwAgpU6
Christine wailed out loud as though she was about to cry and leaned on my shoulder to fake cry. I shook my head and patted her on the back.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVxmKW3AjZP
"Well, at least no one got hurt," I said. "Though she would've been sued if it wasn't for Taeyang. And BTS themselves."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOGaqgK6nl2
"She's one lucky girl for sure," said Taeyang. "I bet that is all over entertainment news already."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYeToha2PwD
"Collins is so going to kill me," said Christine as she stopped leaning her head on my shoulder and looked at me.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3VVP0xXxjM
"It was nothing but an accident," I said. "A horrible one for that matter."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ26rOGydJKn
"You see! I can't even go on social media because everyone is probably talking about it."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbVPjTTayAJ
"Christine, it's okay," said Seungri as he came to the living room and sat next to Christine's other side. "People are bound to talk anyway. Besides, who wouldn't notice BTS, Sam, Taeyang and you all in one place?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEmcyOfmJqf
"If you put it like that, it sounds fine. But I caused a pandemonium. Do you know what that's like?" Christine asked as she looked at Seungri.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡompV99NMUF
"And it was in front of BTS for that matter," said Mike as he started to laugh. "I better check what people are saying about this." He pulled out his phone from his pocket.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNAnYyMmhvT
"Ooh, this is so bad," said Christine. "Now that I think of what I've done, BTS would probably never want to see me again."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjV1FjS7qup
"With all those selfies you took and exchanging phone numbers, they would want to see you again," I said with a smile.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOrluqCruy3
"You think so?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmyy3Dc6TtQ
I rolled my eyes. "You worry too much. All they did was laugh at the situation. And the customers you bumped into weren't as angry as the manager of the store, who of course wanted to sue you."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ6ObxehO73
"I should have gone with Zoey shopping instead." Christine sulked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4tBw1NhDLh
"Then you wouldn't have met BTS," said TOP. "You're a lucky girl because not every fangirl gets to meet them face to face, you know?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXJtStYJb8h
"I bet Zoey and G-Dragon had a smooth time. Unlike us."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb5zzFSsPwH
"Something tells me they are also in for a wild afternoon," I said. "Remember when I was acting all nervous and jumpy and said that something was going to happen on our way to the store?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdTiauovKr9
"Yep," said Taeyang as he and Daesung came into the living room area. "Must have been your intuition talking."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwnezazmheM
"And you just gained another ten points on your intuition, Sam," said Mike as he was staring at his phone. "Guess who Zoey met at the mall?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMhdq3RYrkX
Just before I could ask any further, the door to the apartment flew open and G-Dragon came in. Surprisingly, he was carrying Zoey over his shoulder and Zoey was screaming and kicking her legs in the air.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDBtYzKHbhR
"GD! Put me down! I'm not a sack of potatoes you can easily carry around, you know!" Zoey wailed. Her legs kicking frantically in the air.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtJKZJ3wBzY
"Can you shut up, Zoey!" G-Dragon also protested.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrzK4KkIL72
"Until you put me down!" Zoey started to hit G-Dragon on his back. "Who do you think you're!"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ27sWEZEToZ
"Zoey!" I stood up from the couch. "What's going on?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnPMGNj0yAh
Zoey stopped kicking and hitting G-Dragon. "Sam?" She sounded surprised to hear my voice. G-Dragon made her feet touch the floor and Zoey quickly turned to stare at the rest of us in the living room.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAOMvyP1yrP
"Oh, we're back in the apartment?" she asked with a surprised look on her face.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡraSgHJBfJN
"Where do you think I was taking you?" G-Dragon asked with an irritated look on his face. "The mental hospital? Although that's one place you should be to be honest."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfkx2vPyEAH
"I couldn't agree more," said Mike with a grin.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrK0u6K2Iu8
"Oh, keep quiet, Mike!" Zoey snapped.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwuQLZ55Off
"Why did you have to bring her in like that?" Daesung asked G-Dragon.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrHkgV13caV
"You should have seen the state she was in," said G-Dragon. "I had to lift her up from the car because she wasn't responding to me the whole time. She was just staring at pics on her phone, looking all dreamy eyed."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIvInxDWePu
My left eyebrow raised. That was exactly how Christine was the whole time we drove here. I turned to look at Mike.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaDMiVFaVfM
"Who did Zoey meet?" I asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWQsjx4XP3f
"I'm glad you asked," said Mike as he smiled at me. "EXO."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmgXcC1T7JP
"WHAT!" Christine stood up from couch staring at Mike, looking all surprised, that she looked like a lunatic. I quickly held her shoulder and gently pushed her back down.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ108Tdzw5Eb
"Why didn't you ask me instead?" Zoey asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxZHZpu5Yol
"Because just like you," started Taeyang, "Christine was also in the same condition you were."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZc36Q1WcnB
"Really?" G-Dragon asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5RIFxTH9Lt
"Yep," said Daniel. "And guess who these guys met when they went shopping for groceries?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNMQwUHqYQt
"Who?" Zoey asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZYpLdzEDs7
"BTS," Christine answered.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwLf8kFDWH2
Zoey's mouth dropped. "You're kidding! For real?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBAKgTmtUCL
"You should check out the 'supermarket fiasco' online," said Mike. "It's classic."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkS17iD6qPz
Zoey screamed and went to join Christine who also started screaming with her and they held hands, jumping up and down in excitement.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM2EISZ4FXt
"You met EXO?" Christine asked
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7v8a85MQYD
"You met BTS?" Zoey also asked. "I can't believe it!"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ46LICOYkeS
"AAAAHHH!" They both screamed with glee and hugged each other.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4mP7UwHpHr
"Gosh, my ears are about to burst," said Daniel as he stuck a finger in his ear and shook.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWPp9jSLsG6
"Tell me about it," said TOP.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7jKCyfKnPG
"Do you want to hear my side of the story?" Zoey asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5c8Kq4dHC3
"No!" most of us replied and I quickly took my leave with Seungri behind me. Daesung and Taeyang followed too.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAHmZkiHnaR
"Now that I think of it, Daniel and I didn't get the chance to look around the apartment," said Mike.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUeddvBtZli
"I'll show you guys around," said TOP.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWUsNmaVP6g
Mike, Daniel and TOP got up and also left the living room, heading down the hall.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzatKY38FNk
"Okay, you guys are missing out," Zoey called out to us.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAAmWpvo2lh
"I think I've had enough drama for today," I said when I walked into the kitchen and started checking for strawberries in one of the grocery bags on the table.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQVBBDCtFfc
Seungri came to stand beside me, bumping into me in the process. I looked at him.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXrCixpwKRZ
"What's wrong, Seungri?" I asked as I went back to looking for the strawberries.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvmae3aixd0
"How come you're not like them?" Seungri asked jerking his head towards the living room area where Zoey excitedly talked to Christine about how she met EXO.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIycBtF6O6X
"Trust me, I've no idea," I said as I smiled. "I was also as excited as Christine with meeting BTS. Am a huge fan."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKBy1YqOvl3
"Hearing you say that makes me jealous," said Seungri with a frown.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9omWBoMqjW
"Me too," said G-Dragon, who looked irritated and tired as he went to the fridge to get the jug of water out. "At least you're not acting like a lunatic like they are or else I would've locked you up."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtVYdZBHUvu
"In a mental hospital?" I asked not looking at him.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡplnnypHfas
"In my room."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡneoIpMsAA1
I turned to look at G-Dragon behind me and he smiled. I quickly looked away feeling irritated. I had to control myself from blushing as I continued to look for my strawberries. Even from his body language, I could tell Seungri was irritated too.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡezY0EgONvG
"Ah!" I said excitedly. "Found my yummy strawberries." I took the plastic lunchbox of strawberries.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaZqkHi8ySZ
"You really love strawberries, don't you?" Taeyang asked as he came to finish packing up.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEibl3XaR4u
"You've no idea," I said with a smile as I went over to the sink to have the strawberries washed.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYRQBMYHFG9
"I bet your lips taste like delicious strawberries," said Seungri.

I paused by the sink, not saying a word and G-Dragon who was getting a glass from the cabinet next to me almost dropped it to the floor.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3bKzCG9FyQ
"Don't say that, Seungri," I said gaining my composure and turning to face him. "Speaking of which, I should have joined the others looking around the apartment."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr1lO1jPrTa
"Want me to go with you?" Daesung asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7H2MI5sAAN
"Yes, please," I said as I quickly went to join him standing in the hall, with the plastic lunchbox in my hands. I turned towards Seungri and G-Dragon who looked at me. "You two shouldn't follow me."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXgq6z4oJJc
They both groaned and muttered "fine" at the same time.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡflsltjx1S8
I went down the hall with Daesung as I took a strawberry and put it in my mouth. We turned round the corner and we found a set of doors on either side of the hall.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSRg8Fx7fQs
"Want to check the bedrooms first?" Daesung asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR4ug0yRHqm
"Ya, that's okay," I said with a strawberry still in my mouth.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH92yWXaURF
He chuckled and I looked at him. "What?" I asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUOmQM3kZhe
"You sound really funny with that strawberry in your mouth," he replied. "You also looked really cute."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeRZ3LuwM6Y
If I hadn't swallowed my strawberry earlier, I would have choked on it. Instead, I stared down the hall, blushing.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3cA6AzlMT3
"So, what's in this room?" I asked going to the nearest door to my right.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr3TRlYiCBn
"Oh, that's TOP's room," said Daesung as he opened the door for me. I took a sneak peak of the room and we moved on to the next one.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1ESKfJcRPM
After looking through all the rooms, we found TOP and my two brothers in the laundry room.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ05H5I0EquV
"You also came around for a tour?" TOP asked me as Daesung and I entered the room.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEfxcUeT9iR
"Just like you, I'm not ready for Zoey's tattletales," I said. "Not yet, at least. I'll have to listen to her at some point."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKAZ2xyERgw
"Tell me about it," said Daniel rolling his eyes.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXFB0sCruPm
"But all of this has happened so suddenly, don't you think?" Mike asked. "I mean, you, Sam, meeting BTS and Zoey meeting EXO."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbCO7N1Y2Y5
"I've to admit, it's not all that strange but rather exciting," I said with a smile as I put a strawberry in my mouth.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHv1PsFdqCC
"Don't tell me you're a huge fan of them both?" TOP asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtOL5GFCPJe
"Well, ya," I answered, still chewing. "Is it wrong? I mean, they are all super talented. And cute too."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgxUNIftujW
TOP and Daesung winced at the same time. I raised an eyebrow.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSsyGWu4naP
"I don't like it when you say that," said TOP.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡORiSmeJKsh
"Ya," said Daesung. "I'm almost getting jealous."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNBwgNKqitR
Mike groaned. "Goodness, guys," he said. "Can't a fangirl like more than one k-pop group without the other getting jealous? What's weird is that you aren't even complaining about Zoey and Christine goggling over BTS and EXO."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGP6dgx6Ozh
"Is that a bad thing?" Daesung asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXv2KdU0bq3
"No, that just shows how much you like my sister," said Mike with a smirk. "Not leaving out G-Dragon and Seungri of course."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtXuOt9E8pR
"Just keep quiet, Mike," I said. I could feel my cheeks start to heat up but I immediately brushed that off as best as I could. "Can we please go back?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbojzVqDGQA
"Do you think they are done talking?" Daniel asked referring to Zoey and Christine.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ47xUohZBHx
"I guess so. If I'm right, they are probably looking at photos again. Let's go check."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTShq99gFSM
The five of us all went back to the living room and we found Christine and Zoey on the couch, with their heads touching and they were both looking down at Zoey's phone, quiet.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCHqrKvdhPH
Taeyang, G-Dragon and Seungri were still in the kitchen looking over at the odd pair on the couch. The expression on their faces was one I couldn't discribe even from a distance.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpttbI5e734
"What's going on?" I asked as joined them in the kitchen.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdTq4ybolEg
"I don't know," said Taeyang. "One minute they were talking and the next thing I know, they were silent."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVGEu819SWY
I watched the two on the couch and I could see my two brothers slowly approach them from behind. They were trying to scare them.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN2uWGQ9WqI
"What are you doing?" I whispered to them.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr5uHoEt05q
"What do you think we're doing?" Mike asked. "They won't even get spooked. Just watch."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKx77sWH0A9
They soon got closer to Christine and Zoey and my brothers screamed "BOO!" so loudly they could even wake up a sleeping baby. But the two girls didn't jump in fright. In fact, they sighed in unison as they continued to stare at the photos.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoB2JFvfgOh
"See, I told you," said Mike as he looked at he rest of us behind him.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVrvEa7UTY5
"Forget it, they are lovestruck," I said, putting the last strawberry in my mouth.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡim84mdb2xB
"Lovestruck?" Seungri asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXBWvoIJAfg
"Yep. Since meeting their idols, they aren't thinking straight and all they can think of is them," I said. "They love them as fans, but seeing them in person just made them deeply fall in love on a personal level. Well, that's how I see it."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx5Dyz3QOuV
"If they are lovestruck by their k-pop idols, I for one, am lovestruck by you," said Seungri as he came to hug me from behind me, leaning his head on mine
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR6pcfNsszI
I rolled my eyes by his gesture. But surprisingly, I smiled and at the same time, blushed.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAux2zr4sWY
"Okay, you can stop hugging me now, Seungri," I said.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSwR2whZxvu
"I don't think I want to. You're like a stuffed panda that's so nice and comforting to hug."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL6rXYfVhWg
Zoey suddenly turned to look at us and said, "awwwh! How cute! Just like you're hugging Sam, I want to hug EXO."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtqfR71G7vT
"Which one?" Daniel asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlPNLvjPpN1
Zoey gave him a lopsided grin. To be honest, it looked really creepy. "I don't know," she answered.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3aWtvdc4qx
"Figured," said TOP. "Are you two done lovey doving over those cute boys of yours?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG4eGoajOaD
"Wait, hold on for a second," said Christine, still staring at the phone then she blacked the screen by pressing the power button and put the phone away. "Okay, done."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM907GHi5Kr
"Good," said Taeyang. "Now why don't we order pizza for lunch and watch a movie?"
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBUyVpe81c6
"Great idea," I said.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBYzLNBhe4X
"So what movie are we going to watch?" Daesung asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9ga1dmNhtA
"I'm up for a romantic movie," said Zoey as she stood up.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFb4lgV6WKf
"Me too," said Christine, clapping her hands with glee.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyDFaSDguWa
"Whose up for one of my action movies?" TOP asked.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzqUdZyzzKs
Everyone else raised their hands except Christine and Zoey. The majority always wins.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBNNM5YNq9f
"Come on, you guys are so unfair," Christine complained.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJVQLLBb6T9
"Please, we don't want to watch a romantic movie when all you'll be imagining in those heads of yours are BTS and EXO," said G-Dragon.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPBeYyZCF7p
"Fine," Zoey muttered as she fell back on her seat with her arms folded. I bet she had a scorn on her face.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbzXtjbPg5f
"I'll order the pizza," said Seungri as he stopped hugging me and walked away from the kitchen heading down the hall.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4YJfWKj1t3
"I'll go check for a cool movie we can watch," said TOP, as he also followed Seungri down the hall.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡehC8Cx2xId
"Tae," I said looking at Taeyang who stood behind me. "Maybe you should invite Hyo-rin tonight for dinner. If that's okay. It will be so nice if she comes."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9JjpZulvQB
"Perfect," said Taeyang as he smiled at me and pulled out his phone. "I'll text her to see if she can manage to come tonight."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQtiiDwo5dg
"I ordered for pizza and it will be here in ten minutes," announced Seungri as he appeared.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4sSCwoXPmI
"I'll go try and freshen up," said G-Dragon as he rubbed his neck and groaned in frustration. "All this thing with Zoey was such a burden."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9vgBRqADJp
"Hey!" Zoey protested as she turned to look at G-Dragon.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLtlgFihrs0
"I'm not lying, am I? Besides, you're ten times heavier than a cow that I don't even know how I managed not to collapse onto the floor."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1H8H6yNh2N
My brothers burst out laughing first, then Daesung, Seungri and I followed next. Christine who was next to Zoey tried her best not to laugh as she covered her mouth. Taeyang didn't laugh at all.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjJxyZOEW0N
"You're so going to be sorry for this, GD," Zoey threatened.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHpdnRKlk4b
"Okay, enough, you two," I said, a laugh still urging to come out of my mouth. "I don't want it to be like a usual 'Mike and Zoey' fight episode."
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN9PFeQRJnN
Zoey rolled her eyes at G-Dragon and he did the same to her and left for his room. The rest of us continued to laugh. Taeyang just shook his head.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxcTC3gw3Pi
As Daesung, Seungri and my two brothers went to the living room to settle down, I immediately received a message on my phone. Thinking that it might be Collins, I was surprised to see that it wasn't him. I checked the message and it sent me smiling.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP7uXXqnopa
"Hey, what are you looking at?" Taeyang asked as he came to stand right beside me.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFvAlzyTXs1
I gave him a smile and I showed him the message on my phone. He looked at it and then at me.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE1Vj76B11d
"Oh," was all he could say. He seemed as surprised as I was.
176Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDQpP7nDNWg
And this time around, I was the one who was lovestruck.ns22.214.171.124da2
