"Are you serious?" Mike asked as he looked at me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmJs2Gub98k
"I couldn't say no," I said as I shrugged my shoulders. "Now that I think about it, this is a bad idea."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh1GHdn1b5M
"You were supposed to know that even before you agreed."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1fWcQtTVYh
"What do you think? I said no to RM but everyone else started to plead and I couldn't say no."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhvpZLBaDIZ
"Well, this is going to be great. It's just like that time when BigBang challenged us in that bowling game."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUsP8yXtnkO
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq46YqxUnCv
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz5nzgtkoSF
"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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZlul3QmrrG
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVa4KORti3R
I threw a look at him. "What are you saying? You're supposed to be supporting me. Not thinking like everybody else."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYtsAnr9s0S
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKL4TX3BsVr
"Thanks, I feel a lot better now." I rolled my eyes.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ9eTbMgiq4
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGqH79ozEEW
"As much as you have a point on that one, I still don't feel any better. What if I embarrass myself?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLzYgQjZuo3
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWk3XfQbssK
"Thanks Mike." I smiled at him as I gave him a small punch on the shoulder. "I really needed to hear that."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1XzQ2DHukk
Mike smiled back at me and we soon noticed Suga and Jin approach us. Looks like it's game time.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU6Hc5pnV3z
"Are you ready?" Suga asked with that corky smile on his face as he looked at me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeLfoieUBGl
"To be honest, no," I replied as I felt my cheeks flush.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQH57pyGaVf
"Well, you better be because it's time."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHwFBAWDPfe
"So, what challenge are we going for first?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3XbB8sTEWa
"The basketball game," said Jin.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxrUjeUKFv8
"That will be easy," said Mike as he looked at me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLTjLL1dAcj
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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡerc1Vf7Qfd
"It might be easy, but its as tough as it gets," said Suga.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9jhlW99rRk
I blew out a sigh. "Okay, here goes nothing."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkg6SCcAAut
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡETGaoMJVo5
"Are you ready?" RM asked me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoLAMga26A4
"No," I answered.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuEbMGEw7eU
"Okay," came Lee as she came towards us. "Looks like the players are ready." She smiled at the both of us.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpaA8msh1om
"Looks like you're the one spearheading this challenge like last time," I said.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw6juyN6zmX
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhtuifePbMk
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeFxeNJsnqt
"So, whoever manages to win the most games is winner of the whole competition."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjnglRfmjvg
"Is there a prize for the winner?" RM asked.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡysfnK9GGjX
"Loser does whatever the winner wishes."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrYUen4LdVc
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?
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjhbNB4wY4A
"So, your first challenge is the basketball court. Whoever manages to gain more points than the other wins. Are you ready?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVLmpEg6IT0
"Yes," RM and I replied at the same time. I turned to look at him and I found him looking back at me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5FToKWzqfX
"Okay, so, stand in front of the basketball machine, please and I'll tell when to begin."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkNmkuhzoHl
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYer7TotBvG
"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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ0FULM08rf
"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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYM2O6xC9bB
"Not really a fan of basketball," I answered, trying to keep calm.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnECzZH3wr9
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUqHYwdywQ7
"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?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI47nPkpB3b
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnIblOoAFqm
"In the count of three, you begin," said Lee. "Ready? One, two.....three!"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF62nXwo9xS
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfiFuhxGnSr
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSXV6g8WHH0
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjIFGFxpQz8
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFhQKNv6AD8
"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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡymTEpcH6dX
"Huh?" I asked as I stretched my arm back and forth.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTa4PicelvN
"You won the first round, Sam," said Christine as she over to hug me. "You were awesome."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmQfMZgrOUF
"I won?" I asked with a surprised look on my face after she broke away from me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoKcw0pVv0F
"Look at the scores behind you."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCaVV9JR6qz
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOvt4viKt5i
"What the.....?" I grew too speechless. I didn't expect this, to be honest.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLpS1bGiTlt
"Congrats, Sam," said RM with a smile. "Were you lying that you weren't good at basketball just to fool me?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT8tiGdPffw
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx5pjuVJLXW
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2e8K5mxmYz
"Really?" I now scratched my head.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtJYA5wTEzv
"I told you could do it, sis," said Mike as he came over and smiled at me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb8SWBwvCAF
"Thanks, but can I take a break?" I asked. "My arms are too tired. Just a few minutes."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMsOlBcSMGg
"Sure you can," said Lee. "I'll give you two five minutes then we can go over to the next challenge."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ48B4bmkRdS
"I think I'll also need to rest my arms too," said RM. "Just know that this isn't over yet, Sam."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIdwK2w1j8A
RM went over to join his BTS mates while I was surrounded by my own and WINNER.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCQBItwzwgN
"May I ask where Zoey is?" I asked.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ95hGgccZxE
"Forget about her," said Seungyoon. "She just joined BTS and will be supporting RM from now on."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0eVlNi7FEx
I had my eyebrow raised. "Really?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡm4FOUTx3AH
"I've always told you that Zoey will never last being your best friend," said Mike mockingly and he laughed.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxVXHBsY6pD
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnnGW6E5n0u
"It's only for now," I said. "She can support anyone she wants."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHVkH7i0c3r
A few minutes later, Lee came over to to us.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvwfxt9I74O
"Okay, Sam, ready for the next round?" she asked.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWRMkJn8INl
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5guGbnFc0f
The motorcycle race.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSpxDdLEFew
"No way," I said as I shook my head. "You can't expect me to play this game."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcO025Q1owR
"But that's the next challenge," said Lee.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuqy9LVvFPN
"May I ask who chose this apart from you?" I asked with my arms folded.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJRcj4ldtrI
"Zoey and Suga," Lee replied.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb66xy2LOiB
I rolled my eyes. Zoey and Suga. No wonder. One of them had decided on this and I'm going to know who.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6iHbUbLuJJ
"What's wrong, Sam?" came Suga behind me and I turned to face him. "Scared of a little motorcycle ride?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNgc6ASfnZv
I didn't answer him at first because finding the right words to tell him was proving to be really difficult.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO7tzrio0Ck
"No, it's just that motorcycle games aren't my thing either," I answered.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsOA5gw8FuQ
"Okay, this is just wrong," said Mino. "Aren't these two supposed to play games they can manage to play?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBiMeAyH4bZ
"Well, yes," said Lee. "I had no idea that Sam wasn't really a fan of motorcycle games."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡltqtfTvwWy
"Trust me, she's one who crashes," said Daniel. "A lot."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6Z98gCuzBa
"See, even my brothers know that," I said as I looked at Suga.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8SqA8XI6Jy
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡurSdFH16Ea
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0JWsOcEy8f
"Sorry about Suga," came RM as he came to stand beside me. "He might be a little bit of a prick sometimes."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyVu8PT3xgT
"Don't apologise," I answered. "I might as well have lost this round anyway."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSah9cj18Qt
"You know what? I'm not going to take your word on this one."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnJMHIjpEGr
"Why?" I shrugged my shoulders. "Because of the basketball game?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNKUvkpMuWK
"Yep. It's true what people say about you. You're just full of surprises."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHxPtnwy90W
I didn't say anything as I blushed and thought of what the hell I was going to do in this game.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8yTKUfBihL
"Hey, Sam," came Zoey. "Hope you two are ready. We're about to begin."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ338S6Wc8Zb
"Did you suggest that putting in the motorcycle game in the challenge?" I asked giving Zoey the eyebrow.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRHXS7IW8Am
"Ummmm," Zoey scratched her head looking somewhere else. "Oh, look, Mino is calling me. I'll be back soon."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvI0JneNnPy
Zoey soon left RM and I alone again. He started to laugh while I just rolled my eyes.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx9U5grf0Rs
"What was that about?" RM asked.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZRGE6gAqEk
"Just wanted to know if she was the one who suggested bringing in this challenge. I've no doubt that she did," I answered.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK9YxX23DTM
"Sam," I heard someone call behind me. It was Jimin and alongside him came Jungkook.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgPTSVgY0eA
"Hey," I said as RM and I turned to face them.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuKyLWFKbW0
"We didn't wish you all the best earlier," said Jimin.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZklnr4ApQO
"But aren't you supporting your leader on this?" I looked at RM with my eyebrow raised.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLloWYdlbxy
Jimin shrugged his shoulders as he smiled at me. He looked so adorable when he smiled, I couldn't help but smile back.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhSB2ZIi5cQ
"I care less who wins," he said. "As long as you guys are having fun and we are all with you."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUxYGfkZuDP
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdsHu4IXiGx
"Sam?" A hand waved in front of me and I came back to reality.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbaCLaT4OgG
"Are you okay?" RM asked. He was the one who had waved his hand in front of me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3PgKgaEoWC
"I am. Why?" I asked.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyDinxUoZ2P
"You were smiling to yourself. What were you thinking about?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqDcxiHObGP
I turned to look at Jimin and Jungkook in front of me, still smiling.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWBMKVEaAcs
"Nothing," I replied. "Jimin said something that reminded me what I came here for."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡquoyJcRmoQ
"Mmmm, I'm glad I helped," said Jimin as he chuckled. Gosh, he was just so adorable.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡidxjpI7KB6
"For a moment, I thought you were falling for Jimin," said RM.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFOl6SrN3QT
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJkrvResJYY
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ39qGGkI1wM
I laughed. "Well, ya. Let's just say his cold sarcasm is what draws me to him."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXYBcwGmhIh
"Someone should tell him that," said Jungkook.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCQcVCzu7eG
"For now, don't say a word," I said. "I'll be the one to tell him one of these fine days."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMaYQwYPLqS
"But I really want to know," said RM. "Every fan girl has a bias and you saying you like us all, doesn't count."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡniSc9Zfefi
"You want to know who my BTS bias is?" I raised an eyebrow at RM.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaliJnhGs5C
"I also want to know," said Jimin.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpcoD3qRJqv
I looked at Jungkook. "What about you, Kooky? Wouldn't you like to know?"
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRVuN0PFhSG
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqOnGm13Rj3
"Okay, the motorcycle race is about to begin!" Lee announced, drawing everyone's attention towards her. "Players, please step forward."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH3cxT2B2bF
"We better go," I said.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrISi44tV4d
"All the best," said Jungkook.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrPLx6MVFa2
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3cBHHflT7k
"Players, mount your motorcycles," said Lee.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlsbXcTf5WC
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡipNUFsWTqs
RM mounted on his motorcycle. I turned to look at him and he at me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS90uuvhgGv
"Hope you don't crash," he said.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGGRCAne8xU
I made a flapping noise with my lips. "Please, crashing is almost my middle name," I said with a smirk.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdZCjYkg3Uc
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlr3kTGFMwq
"Okay," came Lee. "Ready? When the lights turn green, you go."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡes8cvY8t1N
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb1aQDdVVn8
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRaNdIMP3sW
RM was ahead of me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPfcKGhMfjk
I didn't care though. As much as I was having fun, not crashing or anything, I had a trick up my sleeve.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpXBirkCh33
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP1G6dp87Eq
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhfrgP6W0WW
"WOOOOHOOOO!" I exclaimed happily with my hands in the air. I felt so alive like never before.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXrG3nd3yH7
I felt someone from behind lift me off the motorcycle. It was Seunghoon. Immediately I was off the motorcycle, he hugged me properly.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRDxY2VZ7NR
"That was so cool, Sam," he said as he looked at me.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6ty87AGv0T
"And you didn't even crash," said Jinwoo as he came to join us. "You were really in the game."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuIOrwWn7nw
"Thanks," I said.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ91YXfB0v2U
"How did you know when to press nitro to win?" Seungyoon asked.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1LAK3JOorq
"I learnt from the best," I said as I turned to look at my two brothers.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsv6R9qKhE4
"If dad were here, he would think you really deserve a driver's license," said Daniel. Mike and I laughed.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZhySDNtZwr
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.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYYDuuFJwk3
"Once again," he said. "You surprised me at the last minute."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdoFybP2E5S
"Hope you aren't mad," I said as I winced.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD378Weq444
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjWMTqvf0nD
"Tell me about it," said Mike. "She beat me in a Tekken game. That was also a shock on my part."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡupBilyLhHo
"Looks like she's just like us after all," said Daniel.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvpVL4dDWuF
"Mmm, excuse me," I said with my eyebrow raised. "I was born first, so, you got the 'it' for gaming, from me."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHKqVm0TSn2
"That's so not true," said Mike, shaking his head.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR98Tb0cTMW
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjaKBOsqT53
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHqnW2TwwB8
I smiled at J-Hope. "I definitely like your thinking."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0aLppMY5zl
"Just because females are proven to be the smartest doesn't mean they are unstoppable," said Daniel.

"I don't know what you're all arguing about here," said Zoey as she approached us. "But we have to move on to the third challenge."

"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'll see about that," I said. "Who knows, he might just surprise me."

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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0Sy8AmBWXL
"You want to back out on the challenge?" I smirked.

"Ya, I should have listened to your brother and Christine that you were on your A game today."

"Is that a forfeit plea I hear?" came Lee as she approached us from behind.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnzt6dDXaZ6
"Yep," said RM as he turned to look at Lee then back at me. "Sam's already beat me in three games with two more to play. She's already won."

"Okay," said Lee as she smiled at RM, then she turned to look at me. "Looks like we've our winner."

"Now can we please just have fun now?" I asked. "I mean, we all came to the arcade to have fun right? Not just watch a challenge."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhBpe13RTzN
"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."

"Okay," said V as he came to stand next to her. "Let's go play darts. You and I."

"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ93zEDL14Gv
"I forgot about that," I said, blushing as I looked at his hand holding mine.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcbgTMnqSQH
"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."
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpA2YYDZTRQ
"Same here," said RM.
203Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPn6EKozj4E

After walking away from the Dance Dance Revolution game machine, I went along with Seunghoon, Suga and RM to play Tekken and everyone else dispersed heading to play other games.

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.ns188.8.131.52da2
