"I couldn't say no," I said as I shrugged my shoulders. "Now that I think about it, this is a bad idea."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjqKvqhtLA0
"You were supposed to know that even before you agreed."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpYWkvDhOqQ
"What do you think? I said no to RM but everyone else started to plead and I couldn't say no."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡktCLcxGpWX
"Well, this is going to be great. It's just like that time when BigBang challenged us in that bowling game."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfqGTlyRDtC
I rubbed my neck as I thought of what might happen. There was no turning back now. And I regretted ever accepting to all of this in the first place.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3auEdtRdpL
Mike and I were standing by the doll claw machines away from everyone else in the gaming area. I was having a bottle of water alongside him waiting to be called for the challenge. Aside from everybody else, Mike was the only person in his right sense who found all of this to be a pretty bad idea.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6I4iOWz8tY
"I think I should just call it quits," I said as I screwed the lid back on the bottle and threw the empty bottle in the waste bin nearby.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgrpe6Ixrcr
"Too late for that, sis," said Mike. "As much as I think about it now, this isn't much of a bad thing after all."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBUWQVviekS
I threw a look at him. "What are you saying? You're supposed to be supporting me. Not thinking like everybody else."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1B40Dze1rZ
"Okay, you're right. But come on, Sam, it will be so much fun. People will get to see that it's not only Daniel and I that having some gaming blood."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ87cx5jzVwx
"Thanks, I feel a lot better now." I rolled my eyes.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMKriPvEKAu
"Don't be so sarcastic. It will be good for you in some way. At least you get to challenge a member of BTS. That's one thing not every fangirl gets to experience."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOajztbLqd2
"As much as you have a point on that one, I still don't feel any better. What if I embarrass myself?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR3BHzo97c2
"Trust me, you couldn't be as worse as Christine. I know you. You might think you aren't ready but you've got this and you'll definitely win."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyvVTVoAvQE
"Thanks Mike." I smiled at him as I gave him a small punch on the shoulder. "I really needed to hear that."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj55nScVivW
Mike smiled back at me and we soon noticed Suga and Jin approach us. Looks like it's game time.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡruqji9cTfQ
"Are you ready?" Suga asked with that corky smile on his face as he looked at me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡddBAFvRkQq
"To be honest, no," I replied as I felt my cheeks flush.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXLxtmZJif4
"Well, you better be because it's time."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqxvmUlhiaG
"So, what challenge are we going for first?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7htLoEXWk3
"The basketball game," said Jin.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGEbDCJTSHW
"That will be easy," said Mike as he looked at me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt4O1DCRE3T
I shook my head. "I don't know. I've to be fast enough to throw the balls in the hoop and gain enough points."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiUAbWLSu6f
"It might be easy, but its as tough as it gets," said Suga.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIlaYl6r9c0
I blew out a sigh. "Okay, here goes nothing."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡphEG2ohWzI
Mike and I followed Suga and Jin to the small crowd of spectators who had come to watch the challenge. I found RM waiting for me at the basketball game machine. In the crowd were BTS, WINNER and The Toxins. Gosh, this felt terrifying. I had to pull myself together and do what I had to do.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKH8zmj5Yf4
"Are you ready?" RM asked me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmqqf4ulPU0
"No," I answered.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9asuNULn0F
"Okay," came Lee as she came towards us. "Looks like the players are ready." She smiled at the both of us.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrRRYg0xryC
"Looks like you're the one spearheading this challenge like last time," I said.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrmp6LrqXM4
"Hey, don't complain. You know I'm older than you and I just have to. So, listen up you two. This is going to be a multiple game challenge. You will only get to play five games."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl3h7Ug1cd3
I sighed in relief. Five was a reasonable number and an odd one for that matter. That meant there wasn't going to be any issue of a tie.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf3yMGXymcP
"So, whoever manages to win the most games is winner of the whole competition."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3gAxvy3KLm
"Is there a prize for the winner?" RM asked.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp05OWrV0Qd
"Loser does whatever the winner wishes."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR6dt8uuAXf
Really? I hated such conditions just to win a game. Why couldn't I just get a doll for a prize or something and walk away free minded?
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXDUSfDQoKM
"So, your first challenge is the basketball court. Whoever manages to gain more points than the other wins. Are you ready?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4oAxOA6WGZ
"Yes," RM and I replied at the same time. I turned to look at him and I found him looking back at me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSnOU3SA0xy
"Okay, so, stand in front of the basketball machine, please and I'll tell when to begin."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ65UrRBRnU1
I turned towards the machine and stood there staring at the basketball net. I've never really played this game before. Better yet, I was never a fan of basketball even back in my school days. If it ever came to ball games, basketball was never really my thing.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy9IS5vvYPe
"All the best, Sam!" I heard Seunghoon cheer behind me. I turned to look at him and I smiled. The rest of WINNER all gave me a thumbs up, wishing me the best of luck.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4aiLR8PplO
"You look nervous," said RM who stood next to me facing the machine next to mine. I turned to look back in front of me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJxSaXqXdQ8
"Not really a fan of basketball," I answered, trying to keep calm.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNjPuMJso0N
I noticed him smile at the corner of my eye with those cute killer dimples on his cheeks and said nothing more. Looks like he thought he had an advantage over me in this game. Well, he had another thing coming. I was going to do whatever it takes.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfR7ebtfI6s
"Okay," came Lee. "Now, you already know what to do. Throw the basketballs into the net and gain enough points before time runs out. You already knows what happens when you miss the target. Are you ready?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡozyPN45qOV
RM and I nodded our heads. I looked at the basketballs all lined up in front of me and shook my hands. I just hope I would be fast enough to throw all those balls into the net.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl4GQP8HGCr
"In the count of three, you begin," said Lee. "Ready? One, two.....three!"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtsfiXzwrAc
I quickly got the first basketball in front of me and threw towards the net. I didn't even check to see if it had gone in or not because I was already getting the second ball and throwing it at the net. I saw that one go in, I got my third one and it went in too.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA3BCFSjOCq
There was cheering behind me and I couldn't tell you who was supporting who. There cheers seemed all muffled up in my ears because I was too focused on the game throwing the balls towards the basketball net. I couldn't even look to my side to see how RM was doing because I might just cost myself in the game.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS8P4MyYCO3
I felt like I had been throwing balls forever that I felt my arms get weary. This time around, I found myself throwing the balls with one hand. I would throw the ball with my left and my right one would be picking up the next one ready to throw. I kept on doing that until I ran out of balls and the buzzer from the machine soon rang, announcing that the game was over.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeymHnuwnLK
Thank goodness! I turned around and sighed as I felt my arms ache after all the throwing. There was clapping and cheering around me and I couldn't care less because my arms ached way too much.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQVevVhsSRO
"And the winner of the this round is.....!" Lee announced. There was still cheering going on that at first I didn't get to hear the name.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfh5rH49pZ6
"Huh?" I asked as I stretched my arm back and forth.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6ht5LXWZed
"You won the first round, Sam," said Christine as she over to hug me. "You were awesome."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1XGrwiEBbx
"I won?" I asked with a surprised look on my face after she broke away from me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoxTUC7MJdI
"Look at the scores behind you."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9NUgxKZA7h
I turned towards the basketball machine and I noticed the score meter right next to the basketball net. I looked over at RM's score. I beat him and that made my mouth drop.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzu9q34384O
"What the.....?" I grew too speechless. I didn't expect this, to be honest.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXUAwmvhMDI
"Congrats, Sam," said RM with a smile. "Were you lying that you weren't good at basketball just to fool me?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOqz1BcEV9R
"Aren't you seeing the surprised look on my face right now?" I asked pointing at my own face. "Trust me, I meant what I said when I said that basketball was never my thing."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx5l1zRmTTy
"Well, you showed him," said Mino as he came towards me. "Not only were you fast at throwing the balls, you only got to miss the net once."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqw3V3J769d
"Really?" I now scratched my head.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRceAUk7n6G
"I told you could do it, sis," said Mike as he came over and smiled at me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFToZZHkTkb
"Thanks, but can I take a break?" I asked. "My arms are too tired. Just a few minutes."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7JZ2ofbiKP
"Sure you can," said Lee. "I'll give you two five minutes then we can go over to the next challenge."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9AAF6jJN6D
"I think I'll also need to rest my arms too," said RM. "Just know that this isn't over yet, Sam."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvfSzqgzTJN
RM went over to join his BTS mates while I was surrounded by my own and WINNER.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIeKRl3NVpj
"May I ask where Zoey is?" I asked.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvgYnza1nvk
"Forget about her," said Seungyoon. "She just joined BTS and will be supporting RM from now on."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdNUe57b9G4
I had my eyebrow raised. "Really?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFC9iB12Z5T
"I've always told you that Zoey will never last being your best friend," said Mike mockingly and he laughed.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgUVCQKMBiA
I looked towards BTS and I could see Zoey standing right next to Jimin. They were all talking and laughing. She seemed to be having a good time with them.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsddOJGJAlB
"It's only for now," I said. "She can support anyone she wants."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5BVoqBMzUl
A few minutes later, Lee came over to to us.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr67avpbwkv
"Okay, Sam, ready for the next round?" she asked.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKKJTtYlgcR
I nodded my head and she nodded back. She went over to RM obviously asking him the same question. He also nodded his head and we all followed Lee to the next game machine.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGAF9VTP15u
The motorcycle race.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9TM2EZxqgi
"No way," I said as I shook my head. "You can't expect me to play this game."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIr10F6YH2N
"But that's the next challenge," said Lee.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYatGwCO4EL
"May I ask who chose this apart from you?" I asked with my arms folded.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLZIjBBk9lV
"Zoey and Suga," Lee replied.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsERWBOh5Qv
I rolled my eyes. Zoey and Suga. No wonder. One of them had decided on this and I'm going to know who.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM74mPh6Bbd
"What's wrong, Sam?" came Suga behind me and I turned to face him. "Scared of a little motorcycle ride?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfY5SiFAcOp
I didn't answer him at first because finding the right words to tell him was proving to be really difficult.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnGHhx2IkU4
"No, it's just that motorcycle games aren't my thing either," I answered.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkC1GyWeNLw
"Okay, this is just wrong," said Mino. "Aren't these two supposed to play games they can manage to play?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6aXbGr8AnG
"Well, yes," said Lee. "I had no idea that Sam wasn't really a fan of motorcycle games."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcCwlqr0xkT
"Trust me, she's one who crashes," said Daniel. "A lot."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp1SMhCqCiu
"See, even my brothers know that," I said as I looked at Suga.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuLV1iAZ6hE
"But I'm afraid the challenge has already been set," said Suga with a smirk. "So you better get ready. Who knows, you might just be lucky with this like you were with the basketball challenge."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGETbepcizG
I shook my head and turned away from Suga to look at the motorcycle arcade machine before me. If it was one thing I sucked at apart from basketball, was race car or motorcycle games. The reason why I hated them was because I would always crash. Though there was a time when I used to practise a lot and I had almost got it right. But right now, I was afraid that I might as well just crash big time.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8FhXETTT1Q
"Sorry about Suga," came RM as he came to stand beside me. "He might be a little bit of a prick sometimes."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTTXWmZdSyD
"Don't apologise," I answered. "I might as well have lost this round anyway."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE2IbUQtUSW
"You know what? I'm not going to take your word on this one."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRkSCQt9Hn2
"Why?" I shrugged my shoulders. "Because of the basketball game?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyxTAIcvW63
"Yep. It's true what people say about you. You're just full of surprises."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqeJOIH6Wfe
I didn't say anything as I blushed and thought of what the hell I was going to do in this game.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9vOKmUKDnB
"Hey, Sam," came Zoey. "Hope you two are ready. We're about to begin."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxhYaOkfEam
"Did you suggest that putting in the motorcycle game in the challenge?" I asked giving Zoey the eyebrow.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5qiqt5OdZk
"Ummmm," Zoey scratched her head looking somewhere else. "Oh, look, Mino is calling me. I'll be back soon."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP32Z9GZeP4
Zoey soon left RM and I alone again. He started to laugh while I just rolled my eyes.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTwnd14NA8g
"What was that about?" RM asked.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKDFA9zcZb7
"Just wanted to know if she was the one who suggested bringing in this challenge. I've no doubt that she did," I answered.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYz6W4dkX1r
"Sam," I heard someone call behind me. It was Jimin and alongside him came Jungkook.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0BdaoPIg5Y
"Hey," I said as RM and I turned to face them.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD02FMMWC8u
"We didn't wish you all the best earlier," said Jimin.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6Qbn8kEH61
"But aren't you supporting your leader on this?" I looked at RM with my eyebrow raised.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTTUvQH9lF1
Jimin shrugged his shoulders as he smiled at me. He looked so adorable when he smiled, I couldn't help but smile back.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjhJWUVYMPO
"I care less who wins," he said. "As long as you guys are having fun and we are all with you."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡajzP5DI2b4
What Jimin said bore deep in my mind. He was absolutely right on this one. This wasn't some kind of competition where we would win a grand prize. We all came here to have fun and I forgot about all that because I so much as cared about winning this thing to prove how much of a gamer I was like my brothers.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIZurHZ1gQQ
"Sam?" A hand waved in front of me and I came back to reality.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa4tGzgDNFf
"Are you okay?" RM asked. He was the one who had waved his hand in front of me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjBDAlRnvdl
"I am. Why?" I asked.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ58IK1a9bsz
"You were smiling to yourself. What were you thinking about?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl28izrL521
I turned to look at Jimin and Jungkook in front of me, still smiling.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk0XuhhHMmh
"Nothing," I replied. "Jimin said something that reminded me what I came here for."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYGNjpWz1iL
"Mmmm, I'm glad I helped," said Jimin as he chuckled. Gosh, he was just so adorable.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3f1CzGAo1v
"For a moment, I thought you were falling for Jimin," said RM.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEyaUl5vSn3
"Don't all girls?" I asked giving RM a smirk. "I'll tell you one thing, I like all of you BTS members, it's hard to chose who's my bias."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP8LOfQAD3w
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPzayiVHHiW
I laughed. "Well, ya. Let's just say his cold sarcasm is what draws me to him."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp2HKKZnYC3
"Someone should tell him that," said Jungkook.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdosANNBRLE
"For now, don't say a word," I said. "I'll be the one to tell him one of these fine days."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkbyjgQXLRL
"But I really want to know," said RM. "Every fan girl has a bias and you saying you like us all, doesn't count."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM8Cz8sGHZi
"You want to know who my BTS bias is?" I raised an eyebrow at RM.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGn3WmK5PZd
"I also want to know," said Jimin.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1GHSIJY8yb
I looked at Jungkook. "What about you, Kooky? Wouldn't you like to know?"
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr1CWzJgpC5
Jungkook looked startled. Looked like he didn't expect me to call him Kooky and he ended up staring at the floor, then back at me without a word.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGcQAioIpiy
"Okay, the motorcycle race is about to begin!" Lee announced, drawing everyone's attention towards her. "Players, please step forward."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXIKyf23fcR
"We better go," I said.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbiP0KdAKeG
"All the best," said Jungkook.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr2c8S1jtbI
I smiled at him and Jimin. As I turned around with RM, I couldn't help but wonder if I had seen Jungkook blush earlier. But I brushed that off when I approached the motorcycle game machine.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVxQeOQUjd8
"Players, mount your motorcycles," said Lee.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu1P4rZgYDI
I got on my motorcycle and I couldn't help but feel familiar with it. It was almost like getting on a bicycle. I smiled at myself. Maybe with this, I wouldn't do such a horrible job as crash in the game.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgMuotq9oRi
RM mounted on his motorcycle. I turned to look at him and he at me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIY0JV12tEK
"Hope you don't crash," he said.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwTuUM2lBRF
I made a flapping noise with my lips. "Please, crashing is almost my middle name," I said with a smirk.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIa1XIc4Pte
I held the handlebars of the motorcycle and I noticed the buttons on it. The forward, reverse, acclerator, the brakes and nitro booster buttons. I took a deep breath and prayed that I shouldn't crash.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvAU5d95YoT
"Okay," came Lee. "Ready? When the lights turn green, you go."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwNQX9RhQ85
I turned to look at the screen in front of me. I was facing a long tarred road. The traffic robot above the screen showed red, seconds later, it was yellow. I took a deep breath and my thumb was ready to press on the accelerator button.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdoPIN5uhlE
The green light came on and I pushed on the accelerator. My motorcycle on the screen sped forward and I was on the road. So far so good as I was doing okay. When it came to every corner, I would turn smoothly holding onto the brakes so as not to skid off the road, moving the motorcycle I was on side to side. There was only one problem though.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBU2m5K1BNO
RM was ahead of me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRYDcQpyXr3
I didn't care though. As much as I was having fun, not crashing or anything, I had a trick up my sleeve.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3NfKHgqTqD
One good thing was that we were only going for one round. I stared at the map on the side of the screen. We were almost close to the finish line and I was close on RM's tail. I stepped on the accelerator and I was now neck and neck with RM.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcL2AopuepJ
There was cheering behind me going on and that made me motivated. RM pulled a little further away from me and just as we were almost close to the finish line, I pushed on the nitro booster and my motorcycle on the road dashed at a high speed and passed the finish line. The words "WINNER" flashed on my screen.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDfu11hFvAy
"WOOOOHOOOO!" I exclaimed happily with my hands in the air. I felt so alive like never before.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH5cAiVg89y
I felt someone from behind lift me off the motorcycle. It was Seunghoon. Immediately I was off the motorcycle, he hugged me properly.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7SkIEGDjl6
"That was so cool, Sam," he said as he looked at me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgXKmz95aX0
"And you didn't even crash," said Jinwoo as he came to join us. "You were really in the game."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2XdtqqBoWD
"Thanks," I said.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVQDcZZhshc
"How did you know when to press nitro to win?" Seungyoon asked.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAWSOJTdUEG
"I learnt from the best," I said as I turned to look at my two brothers.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVvoB842yrf
"If dad were here, he would think you really deserve a driver's license," said Daniel. Mike and I laughed.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNTu7ibnoxc
I heard clapping behind me and I turned around to see RM. He had also just mounted off the motorcycle he was riding on and was applauding for me.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWhFQbYt02e
"Once again," he said. "You surprised me at the last minute."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvZ4i5jxsC6
"Hope you aren't mad," I said as I winced.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡba93g8g6Lm
"Do I look mad? I'm being beaten by a girl, left, right and centre. This probably is the most surprising day of my life."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1G0fpbXrOx
"Tell me about it," said Mike. "She beat me in a Tekken game. That was also a shock on my part."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv5COVLzRfY
"Looks like she's just like us after all," said Daniel.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgKcdDG613K
"Mmm, excuse me," I said with my eyebrow raised. "I was born first, so, you got the 'it' for gaming, from me."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhzjntousXx
"That's so not true," said Mike, shaking his head.
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6IFbL7NAhB
"It is. It's just that you boys were born in a time and era where video games became so popular that it was a must for every boy to know how to play."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1BMFJRbtHn
"I think I agree on Sam on this one," said J-Hope as he came to join us. "If playing video games was a girl-thing, they would be unstoppable."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp26o6wfXWd
I smiled at J-Hope. "I definitely like your thinking."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSnw0LKMFCm
"Just because females are proven to be the smartest doesn't mean they are unstoppable," said Daniel.

"Let me give you a tip," said J-Hope. "RM isn't that much of a dancer. I bet in this round, you might as well have won it."

We moved on to the Dance Dance Revolution game and RM and I got on with the challenge right away. I was having fun and so was he. Everyone else who watched was cheering for us because they were also enjoying it. I ended up winning the challenge.

"Okay, it's pretty obvious that you've won this challenge," said RM. "You've already beat me in three games."

"Is that a forfeit plea I hear?" came Lee as she approached us from behind.

"I agree," said Zoey. "Now that I see everyone having fun, I think I also want to join in and play a game or two."

"Speaking of which," came Seunghoon as he came to approach me and took me by the hand. "You and I have a Tekken game to play."
488Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZI9RSMpWXo
"I forgot about that," I said, blushing as I looked at his hand holding mine.

"I want to go against her too," said Suga as he gave me a smirk. "I'll have to see for myself if she's really that good as others say she is."

"Same here," said RM.

We all had fun, The Toxins, BTS, WINNER and Lee. We played various games together that it didn't matter who was better than the other. We even had fun at the doll claw machines. Though it was funny how most of us failed to get the dolls out a number of times.

Time seemed to have stopped when we were in the arcade. Because the time we were all leaving the place, we were surprised that it was way past lunch time, late in the afternoon.ns22.214.171.124da2
