Meeting WINNER the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAFYhuGXSnCJ
previous day was one of the most memorable days of my life. We had so 8Please respect copyright.PENANANp2cKMiktP
fun when they came, though they were just with us for a short while 8Please respect copyright.PENANAR8s8O4cYln
because we had to be pretty cautious with when Collins and Lee were 8Please respect copyright.PENANAc1ltv1qop3
going to come back to the hotel. They weren't supposed to know that 8Please respect copyright.PENANA7csapdXHxq
WINNER had come to the hotel to visit. Most especially, Collins.copyright protection4PENANAzo34zKICYG8Please respect copyright.PENANAxozZxn4Kmq

With the little time we 8Please respect copyright.PENANA8yrt2XvtlU
had with WINNER, I couldn't help but feel like a fan girl all over again8Please respect copyright.PENANAwt7ZDxdAfK
as we all got to know each other.copyright protection4PENANA0HUldZEatj8Please respect copyright.PENANA1M9BMHYQsl

Seungyoon, the leader 8Please respect copyright.PENANAgAUH3WFzq0
and maknae of the group is so cute. For me I really like him or maybe 8Please respect copyright.PENANAuXuBX78aIn
thats just the fan girl in me saying all that. I just felt he was such a8Please respect copyright.PENANAVKa5lWMkMf
fun and nice person to be around with.copyright protection4PENANA5whX5dhJPI8Please respect copyright.PENANAF3PzLTwqsW

Then there is Mino, who 8Please respect copyright.PENANArWUVyR3H1M
almost looks identical to G-Dragon, you could easily mistake the two for8Please respect copyright.PENANA5Wwf1ScOcZ
father and son. I mocked G-Dragon about it with the others. And Zoey 8Please respect copyright.PENANA3R2SrNMYef
kind of grew attached to Mino. Which to me, wasn't much of a surprise.copyright protection4PENANAzp6DtGocjn8Please respect copyright.PENANAVGcPBKGFsI

As for Jinwoo and 8Please respect copyright.PENANAsxEZNGRZu3
Christine, they seem to be hitting it off pretty well like good friends.8Please respect copyright.PENANAYxV1qnOcm3
I for one thought they made a really cute couple. Though I had to keep 8Please respect copyright.PENANArhJD7loO0Q
in mind Collins' golden rule about not dating anyone while we were here 8Please respect copyright.PENANAwtobsbRjbl
in Korea.copyright protection4PENANATj4NFhMksf8Please respect copyright.PENANAnaTjbjH0w3

As for Seunghoon, I 8Please respect copyright.PENANA3XlMBt7Zh8
wasn't going to let go of him that easily. He and I had a lot of talking8Please respect copyright.PENANAQOBeZ4qRoC
to do concerning how he got in the closet in the first place. I guess 8Please respect copyright.PENANAcMM65YpNYV
he was the one who had secretly been stalking me the whole time.copyright protection4PENANAEyMVvR8NBY8Please respect copyright.PENANAR2TcOuGWuY

Before they left, we 8Please respect copyright.PENANA5kMHzMLZEa
agreed to meet tomorrow at YG, though the three BigBang members didn't 8Please respect copyright.PENANACQWoX2nmPl
think it was a good idea because of their manager. Even if the two 8Please respect copyright.PENANAiGocTdHzab
groups were to meet, how were we, The Toxins, going to agree with 8Please respect copyright.PENANAyfwkX57I5L
Collins to let us go to YG? As far as everyone's concerned, we were done8Please respect copyright.PENANATHCP6zRtWH
with our collabo with BigBang. What else were we going to do at that 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPfndrhr8RB
place?copyright protection4PENANAvanCORjc4C8Please respect copyright.PENANAkpQQKNVSw0

I already had that part 8Please respect copyright.PENANADpIgfOQ6iN
all sorted out. G-Dragon declared that whatever I had planned wasn't 8Please respect copyright.PENANAO82blutNDk
going to work this time around. The other Toxins and WINNER had faith 8Please respect copyright.PENANAoXKeOu2Kmz
that it will. And I was pretty sure it would work because I knew I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAL0Zthei7lA
wouldn't have to break a sweat.copyright protection4PENANAzXVEKBWwVo8Please respect copyright.PENANAU9JXl5sOS6

Right now, this very 8Please respect copyright.PENANA9g4TuSoxCL
morning, I'm in my purple pyjamas with a matching sleeping robe and 8Please respect copyright.PENANA6nL5R2k9aF
fluffy bed slippers, stretching and yawning as I stepped out of my room 8Please respect copyright.PENANAK5Ot39yvXq
into the hall. I made my way to the lounge where I found Collins and Lee8Please respect copyright.PENANAC7GG0bzpJb
by the dining table, working. The two had been so busy yesterday and 8Please respect copyright.PENANAaQzVWqYgA9
still even today. I didn't get a chance to talk to Lee about WINNER 8Please respect copyright.PENANAVkeJNhSmNQ
because she came back so tired last night and went early to bed.copyright protection4PENANAMzXyusqDf18Please respect copyright.PENANAMpXt6YEFno

"Morning," I said as I approached the dining table.copyright protection4PENANACLc0o0RHdV8Please respect copyright.PENANARyeqtaRsqr

"Morning," Collins replied first, then Lee. "Aren't you supposed to be asleep?" he asked.copyright protection4PENANAjNSfrCQn9L8Please respect copyright.PENANABlLQ5z7XWV

"I'm tired of sleeping,"8Please respect copyright.PENANAOIlMcrLR78
I said as I drew out a chair and sat on the opposite end of the table 8Please respect copyright.PENANAfYGtpaDgD4
from where Collins sat. I needed to look at him straight in the eye as 8Please respect copyright.PENANAHeqt4v3ct0
we talk. But as for now, he was looking down at some paper work.copyright protection4PENANAMVkJuPcUtr8Please respect copyright.PENANA8hIt4VVPM2

"Well, you can always do something, right?" he suggested.copyright protection4PENANAW5d95BaXin8Please respect copyright.PENANAY10EvpP9Gs

"Ya, I guess," I replied as I leaned back on my chair and rubbed my eyes. "I was thinking we get back to the old routine."copyright protection4PENANATCbLRDoH1y8Please respect copyright.PENANAdoHDSM9WZC

"What old routine?" Collins asked. He was still not looking at me.copyright protection4PENANAtNtOxYEKS78Please respect copyright.PENANAW7UFBYAwOm

"You know, going for 8Please respect copyright.PENANAyMozrTZg2F
practise every morning. We're done with what we came to do here, so I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAJg3rTWd3Sd
was thinking it's best we try and keep ourselves busy while we wait to 8Please respect copyright.PENANAFOkAtWy3sm
go home. We can't always go shopping and sightseeing everyday. At least 8Please respect copyright.PENANAq19OBAHAQK
we try to do what we're familiar with."copyright protection4PENANAcPdpYj08hj8Please respect copyright.PENANAgA0j1UgfX8

"Mmmm, I guess you're 8Please respect copyright.PENANAsDXNdrJMuc
right," said Collins as he looked up at me. "I was wondering what you 8Please respect copyright.PENANA9VeiJPSrpJ
guys will be doing the whole time now that shooting the music video is 8Please respect copyright.PENANAbFjcZl6fB4
done, and you came up with a pretty good idea."copyright protection4PENANAwaWHWNkkvl8Please respect copyright.PENANAo3HlRUMBHh

"I did?" I tried not to act surprised through my sleepiness.copyright protection4PENANATY9nNGlrrd8Please respect copyright.PENANANQc19WR1og

"Yep," Collins nodded 8Please respect copyright.PENANALAV5MVqTa1
his head. "I think doing your usual routine to start the day will be 8Please respect copyright.PENANAXz5FUXAHyh
perfect. Why don't you wake up the others and head to YG? I don't want 8Please respect copyright.PENANAZm8coh8fjx
all of you to become lazy bums at the end of the day and that won't be 8Please respect copyright.PENANAv47raUnBNy
good now, will it?"copyright protection4PENANAzD3N21639n8Please respect copyright.PENANACL7Ir2F1Je

Wow. This was literally 8Please respect copyright.PENANAjJAsVYK4e3
not breaking a sweat. I didn't even have to look at him the entire time 8Please respect copyright.PENANABK8IbiDzTr
and he even agreed for us to start today. Perfect. Absolutely perfect.copyright protection4PENANAnFyjnu6HPC8Please respect copyright.PENANA7wdefEgVG0

I tried not to act all happy about it as I yawned and slowly stood up from the chair.copyright protection4PENANA2IBb5oSqQj8Please respect copyright.PENANA90JJsFIcJW

"Okay, I'll go wake them up," I said.copyright protection4PENANAEqWHdZIk3S8Please respect copyright.PENANAgkHo3SHGsA

I left the lounge at a 8Please respect copyright.PENANA7z7lNmZ4hG
slow and steady pace. When I turned around the corner, I quickly and 8Please respect copyright.PENANA5rGPb8uTle
quietly ran back to my room with so much excitement and through the door8Please respect copyright.PENANAQByxZCqGiS
I had left open. I ran in and jumped on Zoey's bed to wake her up.copyright protection4PENANAIqygJVKQCz8Please respect copyright.PENANAhqroLfLLk3

Zoey sat up with a start8Please respect copyright.PENANArqu7fGgKzB
immediately I landed on her bed. She sucked her teeth in irritation 8Please respect copyright.PENANAYqcxYc9oSs
when she noticed it was me and fell back into the bed covers.copyright protection4PENANAtFi4RntKOk8Please respect copyright.PENANAhaTJzEZlqj

"What's your problem, Sam?" she whined. "Can't you see it's too early in the morning?"copyright protection4PENANA3sK0aX0Ti38Please respect copyright.PENANAoRKTYZzeK9

"Don't you want to go and see WINNER or what?" I asked as I looked down at her.copyright protection4PENANAL0tkhdf24S8Please respect copyright.PENANAQJA2hyerX7

At first she didn't say a8Please respect copyright.PENANATfhMYRrYcR
word until she scrambled to sit up, pushing the bed covers aside and 8Please respect copyright.PENANAhBI1vH15WM
looking at me with her eyes wide open.copyright protection4PENANACxxUCpi5968Please respect copyright.PENANAeMwPOOo3fl

"What did you say?" she asked.copyright protection4PENANApdz9dJ7eCq8Please respect copyright.PENANAb8BtVAknyx

"Get ready, we're going for practise," I said as I stood up from the bed.copyright protection4PENANAhorLJIZYL38Please respect copyright.PENANAfQ8YSDFTIC

"We're going to YG for practise? And meet WINNER there?" Zoey couldn't believe it. "Collins agreed?"copyright protection4PENANARnBpidOAjX8Please respect copyright.PENANAGXodNd1bgg

"Ya. So get your lazy butt out of bed and let's go. I'll go wake up the others."copyright protection4PENANAHIagSo00CD8Please respect copyright.PENANAxsp8VlIgIg

"Sam, I love you," said Zoey with a smile. "You really had it all planned out, didn't you?"copyright protection4PENANAqU2RGLAFKl8Please respect copyright.PENANANY6VWYzCSh

"I did say I had a plan, right?" I shrugged my shoulders. "And Collins agreed without an argument."copyright protection4PENANAJBJl11yPCS8Please respect copyright.PENANAezfCM2PNe6

"I can't wait for GD to see this. And he said your plan wouldn't work."copyright protection4PENANANjAYAtmAuZ8Please respect copyright.PENANA4LztTuPBKy

"Sometimes it's nice to prove people wrong." I smiled and headed out of the room.copyright protection4PENANAeUUgMA1ngM8Please respect copyright.PENANASxwYtsX24Q

I went to wake up 8Please respect copyright.PENANAjipzVbCKZQ
Christine who couldn't understand why we were going for practise until I8Please respect copyright.PENANAR3BqxvVm7F
told her that we had to meet WINNER at YG.copyright protection4PENANAJZoskptTf68Please respect copyright.PENANAUZdrYGTWIY

"Wow, seriously?" Christine asked as she rubbed her eyes and sat up in bed. "Collins agreed to go back to the old routine?"copyright protection4PENANAL3pm1ZQoAk8Please respect copyright.PENANAM2gbCbneWn

"I gave a reasonable 8Please respect copyright.PENANA4OqGfYbalj
explanation so, he agreed. Now, get your gym bag all packed up. You 8Please respect copyright.PENANAQgi4HhKBes
don't want to miss meeting Jinwoo now, do you?"copyright protection4PENANAnOfi42S6p88Please respect copyright.PENANAz0vQc72zlZ

I noticed Christine 8Please respect copyright.PENANAWqNn73mieH
blush out of no where and I decided not to taunt her about it. I quickly8Please respect copyright.PENANAC5YV9FcThq
walked out of the room to go and wake my brothers up. And as much as 8Please respect copyright.PENANAmQrRGDZJck
they were excited that we were back to doing the old routine, they were 8Please respect copyright.PENANAI9LwxSzTbO
happy that they would be meeting WINNER again.copyright protection4PENANAT88hAtH4nW8Please respect copyright.PENANABNTzI2fVVw

When we all had our bags8Please respect copyright.PENANAmimNa3q9MD
packed and we were all dressed ready to go for practise, we found 8Please respect copyright.PENANAuvNf1k8Bdj
ourselves in the lounge. Collins and Lee had stopped discussing and 8Please respect copyright.PENANApO7joPlDLh
looked at us.copyright protection4PENANAb8ZAv0Aloa8Please respect copyright.PENANA97AwUKAlTn

"Well, that was quick," said Collins.copyright protection4PENANAGMZV44XXbn8Please respect copyright.PENANAZoSMEU6Mwk

"We don't need to do so much when going for practise, do we?" Zoey asked. "You told us that."copyright protection4PENANA64wfl7I2c58Please respect copyright.PENANA5V9cfx2BaN

"She's right," said Lee as she looked at Collins.copyright protection4PENANAZneZXKZy5o8Please respect copyright.PENANASkVsRPdsb7

"I hate when you use my 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPbvIX9D4V9
words against me," said Collins. "Let's go before you start to say 8Please respect copyright.PENANAp15yek5hVg
something I'm not looking forward to hearing."copyright protection4PENANAJLbIHgNFdY8Please respect copyright.PENANA5OB0hsPuV1

"You know I can't do that, Collins," said Zoey. "I care too much."copyright protection4PENANA3j3zypGhrS8Please respect copyright.PENANABLc7tag6fc

Collins rolled his eyes 8Please respect copyright.PENANAgEelcsFiKA
and that almost made me laugh. "I'll keep that in mind," he said as he 8Please respect copyright.PENANAyPo9PFCFay
stood up from his chair. "Let's go."copyright protection4PENANAnrfBqdlqMr8Please respect copyright.PENANAGMjTTN4aUj

"Isn't Lee coming with us?" Daniel asked.copyright protection4PENANAPvd0eVg1Au8Please respect copyright.PENANAnaXBva4asO

"I would really love to,8Please respect copyright.PENANAL1DabtQN80
guys, but we've a lot of work to do," said Lee. "I'll make sure to pass8Please respect copyright.PENANAmPNFIGsNRn
by at lunchtime to check on you."copyright protection4PENANA0DO3dnsTEU8Please respect copyright.PENANA6ex4P2eTdG

"You should, we have a lot to tell you," said Christine.copyright protection4PENANAM1m2DMgZc28Please respect copyright.PENANAIYHl8SOZGX

"And what would you possibly want to tell Lee that you wouldn't tell me?" Collins asked with his arms folded.copyright protection4PENANAr1xF2MAjNa8Please respect copyright.PENANAZ2MMIvtbik

"Nothing," said Christine.copyright protection4PENANANOOBS1ZkVD8Please respect copyright.PENANAyoy5so8Ghl

I noticed Mike give 8Please respect copyright.PENANAnZj4lsXarE
Christine a little shove on the shoulder and he whispered to her to shut8Please respect copyright.PENANA7rGUeppIAH
up. I quickly intervened before Collins could notice and ask what was 8Please respect copyright.PENANA295BfyZnfh
going on.copyright protection4PENANAfHFBKjn0jA8Please respect copyright.PENANAICh2HCvENX

"It's just about the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAiVoZPDpel0
k-drama series we watched last night," I said. "Lee was so tired that 8Please respect copyright.PENANAWn92ZpAYMP
she missed the episode that we were all planning on telling her what 8Please respect copyright.PENANAfvswx993OX
happened."copyright protection4PENANA2KCApEm0Ya8Please respect copyright.PENANA07So7I2wXn

"You girls will tell her," said Mike. "I don't watch your k-dramas."copyright protection4PENANAaLYZnR1mbW8Please respect copyright.PENANAwTKGVJ5wIS

Collins sighed. "I don't watch k-dramas either but we all love something, right? Let's go."copyright protection4PENANA0rEG2oZqpj8Please respect copyright.PENANAlYnOuVXEYM

We all said bye to Lee and we headed to the elevator and found the SUV waiting for us as usual outside.copyright protection4PENANA1r4D1tiotg8Please respect copyright.PENANACZUvo1dqyb

When we arrived at YG, 8Please respect copyright.PENANAN54yL0iRw0
we disembarked out of the car at the entrance of the building. Collins 8Please respect copyright.PENANAJSY7Gt2E81
wasn't coming in with us because he said he had to rush back to work.copyright protection4PENANAyE2xEqoFNA8Please respect copyright.PENANArK0lfpntPV

"I already informed the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAEC0JaMJtDg
working staff that you guys will be around," said Collins as he talked 8Please respect copyright.PENANAtn9suPVxu4
to us through the car window. "You guys behave yourselves, okay?"copyright protection4PENANACO2gu5Fuv48Please respect copyright.PENANAzWOAh4ZExO

"Don't worry about a thing, Collins," I said. "I can handle it when things get out of hand."copyright protection4PENANANxwRbyluWP8Please respect copyright.PENANAzcrAVCmF5Z

"I know you will. See you later."copyright protection4PENANALvuO28erO28Please respect copyright.PENANAVym41RUXop

"Bye, Collins," said Zoey and Christine at the same time as they waved at Collins who waved back.copyright protection4PENANA2qR4Gl9mQF8Please respect copyright.PENANA1YlPyDTxir

Immediately the car drove out of the YG premises, we all turned around and found ourselves in the lobby.copyright protection4PENANArEcXwovSSr8Please respect copyright.PENANAlSDNsypOdu

"I can't believe this is happening," said Christine so excitedly as we walked towards the elevator.copyright protection4PENANAIDWcrZkGq98Please respect copyright.PENANAO93be4291r

"I know. Sam is a genius!" Zoey said as she wrapped her arm around my neck and brought me closer to her.copyright protection4PENANAJszAxgWGCM8Please respect copyright.PENANAz2pVRYyLvQ

"Careful, Zoey," I said 8Please respect copyright.PENANAcRJPEbo30C
as I waved at the receptionist at the desk, who happily waved back at 8Please respect copyright.PENANAxOMA00F2aG
us. "And you're squeezing me to death."copyright protection4PENANAm3rz1XXwQP8Please respect copyright.PENANAuJIUEASdmo

"My sis has always been a genius," said Daniel.copyright protection4PENANAYytUKVU5Bk8Please respect copyright.PENANA4zfNpUYNXY

"Did you text them that we're already here?" Mike asked.copyright protection4PENANAekNNUk4Q1G8Please respect copyright.PENANAqvNc5NdLQn

"I did that when we were in the car," I said when Zoey had finally let go of my neck and we had reached the elevator.copyright protection4PENANADnK4WL2UiS8Please respect copyright.PENANArl7afML8Z7

"Good, so we wait," said Zoey as she pressed the up button of the elevator.copyright protection4PENANAJgrdbb85hJ8Please respect copyright.PENANAw3GMR5GPTE

"No," I said as the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAOj9CvfpJ0g
doors flew open and we all went in. "We practise." The doors closed 8Please respect copyright.PENANA7rBeCR1n00
before us and I pressed the button to the floor leading to the dance 8Please respect copyright.PENANAux4bjVg0L9
studios.copyright protection4PENANAqw4ejZznPA8Please respect copyright.PENANAEAtNcZ3CI3

"Are you kidding me?" Zoey moaned as she leaned on the walls.copyright protection4PENANA4tYPxVBAPT8Please respect copyright.PENANATQvu47m6un

"We did say we come here for exactly that, didn't we? It would look weird if we were just snooping around doing nothing."copyright protection4PENANAszaUMl5Urn8Please respect copyright.PENANA7YUb9e7qeT

"And besides, I don't think we've gone for practise in the morning for a while now," said Mike. "I really missed dance."copyright protection4PENANAESTJ6cIFAx8Please respect copyright.PENANAATt3HG2KjL

"We just danced three days ago," said Zoey, with her eyebrow raised.copyright protection4PENANAfF1evy968Y8Please respect copyright.PENANANcBiHGq4MU

"That's different."copyright protection4PENANA0BxbvkxBeY8Please respect copyright.PENANArUTl53zdtO

"Ya, I still get what you mean. So, we practise and while we do that we wait for WINNER."copyright protection4PENANAYTQRCW4lCF8Please respect copyright.PENANA64HA7pha9B

"Exactly," I said as I smiled at Zoey. "Not so hard to do, isn't it?"copyright protection4PENANASSlT6QsfXB8Please respect copyright.PENANAWXNyfvfFz2

"Don't mind, Zoey," said Christine. "We all know her too much already."copyright protection4PENANAeYdL9J5Glk8Please respect copyright.PENANAA1Wtn1wWf0

"I'm not a lazy bum if that's what you mean," said Zoey.copyright protection4PENANAFjevbRsgc48Please respect copyright.PENANALm4tXcSen2

We soon got to the dance studios and when we occupied one of themy which was empty, we began to practise right away.copyright protection4PENANAW5WhZ38si68Please respect copyright.PENANAPkZDSf87VI

It was so much fun 8Please respect copyright.PENANA9vK5Z77v4n
getting back to our old routine. I soon had that sense of relief after 8Please respect copyright.PENANAwPJBjGNcUb
we practised even though I was tired after our first few rounds. I was 8Please respect copyright.PENANAeKvdoosxvn
born to dance and I realised that I had missed doing it.copyright protection4PENANA3w4hie0oUl8Please respect copyright.PENANAfFSZKR6Sna

"What time are these guys coming?" Zoey asked as she was seated on the floor.copyright protection4PENANAJzFY5RPy728Please respect copyright.PENANAfT0YvkFiwA

"It isn't even close to two hours, Zoey," I said with my hands on my hips.copyright protection4PENANAD37Al6EtzW8Please respect copyright.PENANAuKkZXInpfT

"I know, I'm just impatient and I'm already tired of practise."copyright protection4PENANAACtEUMSUbN8Please respect copyright.PENANANvyFvjxCbV

"I'm so glad I told Collins that we should do this again. You've become so lazy. Stand up. Let's go for another round."copyright protection4PENANAgVnVTtNJ1U8Please respect copyright.PENANANrPOqk85DE

"Another round!" Zoey complained. "Can't we at least wait for the boys and Christine to come back?"copyright protection4PENANALFYTgj0UNz8Please respect copyright.PENANAF7o07mJvMZ

Christine, Mike and Daniel had gone out to fetch water bottles for all of us downstairs a good five minutes ago.copyright protection4PENANARnbl268U0j8Please respect copyright.PENANAozuXf0gMDs

"Come on, let's go one on one, just you and me," I challenged.copyright protection4PENANAHhe5d8y0RA8Please respect copyright.PENANAHqTxfkRnpu

"No way," said Zoey, still on the floor and shaking her head. "You know that you're a way better dancer than I am."copyright protection4PENANAVDgTwwdwr08Please respect copyright.PENANA25Bq5JNOez

"Mike's like 'the' best in our group."copyright protection4PENANA5inhEpnMko8Please respect copyright.PENANANC8izniQaW

"And you're second. There's not much of a difference."copyright protection4PENANA52Fk7StFTk8Please respect copyright.PENANAiRmcpCwgZW

"Come on, Zoey," I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAK21ms65gVj
pleaded as I went over to the Beats by Dre pill, lying a few feet away 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPIWX1vkkmu
from us. "I promise I'll play that song you really like."copyright protection4PENANAgOYwHu2U0u8Please respect copyright.PENANAgEmCRLfn2f

"What song?"copyright protection4PENANAV6NinrILd38Please respect copyright.PENANAkNhl9Ksf0o

I didn't answer when I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAyP7vM817sn
got my phone that was lying close to the pill and went through my music 8Please respect copyright.PENANACI1ZlSLAgO
list. I tapped on the track, "The Greatest" by Sia and the music on the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPBB6WKQpZQ
pill soon started to play.copyright protection4PENANA9j5OEdH7TA8Please respect copyright.PENANANyGU3t34Bv

I turned around and I found Zoey already up from the floor and looking at me. I smiled. I knew she would get up to this song.copyright protection4PENANAs9oqF6UI1V8Please respect copyright.PENANArddtdzmZ9D

"I hate you, Sam," she said as I approached her.copyright protection4PENANAcW1ZfoqY9E8Please respect copyright.PENANANZeo5b9WA8

"Just dance, Zoey," I said as we stood a few feet away from her, facing her.copyright protection4PENANA1jX78BkPJe8Please respect copyright.PENANANoHtjLWmPx

When the lyrics were sang out, Zoey started to dance and I watched her, then it was my turn to step in and dance too.copyright protection4PENANAqbnPB3WvLX8Please respect copyright.PENANARhL5LYE7YO

It's been a while since I8Please respect copyright.PENANAKLNYaSajPK
had a real dance battle with Zoey and I had to admit, I was enjoying 8Please respect copyright.PENANAsC995sU1PK
myself. Though we were dancing to one of Zoey's favourite songs and she 8Please respect copyright.PENANAzH2kMNjrVh
was so good at dancing to it, I felt I was up to her level.copyright protection4PENANAqYTrX8Qo608Please respect copyright.PENANAfG33FeVPxK

At the end of it, the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAAZnJ9sc4u1
whole thing didn't finish like a dance battle. We danced together both 8Please respect copyright.PENANAO3IRovEHXA
our moves synchronising with one another.copyright protection4PENANA38j1frDAhm8Please respect copyright.PENANAZdg3gVhcKO

When the song was done, the two of us were facing each other and panting like crazy.copyright protection4PENANAOHxcx8ftE18Please respect copyright.PENANAXkOk4YMg2g

"That was so cool," said Zoey. "Let's do that again."copyright protection4PENANAq4ZjwXsnmz8Please respect copyright.PENANAiQk1IIxmqu

"Wow! You two were awesome," came Mino's voice behind us.copyright protection4PENANAnpHHqW83xq8Please respect copyright.PENANAXpIdsY9KaT

Zoey and I turned around and there stood, Mino and Seunghoon, both smiling at us.copyright protection4PENANApl7XyF5N8K8Please respect copyright.PENANAz7enrilezo

"Aaah! You're here!" Zoey exclaimed excitedly and ran over to them. I was too exhausted to run, so I walked.copyright protection4PENANAPzPOTmLlJ88Please respect copyright.PENANAvRePSWyqjY

"Morning guys, how are you doing?" Zoey greeted them. "I wish I could hug you but I'm all drenched in sweat."copyright protection4PENANAU7xBOXyX158Please respect copyright.PENANAUhoCuQBDBL

"We're great," said Mino. "Can we watch you two dance battle again? It was awesome."copyright protection4PENANAnrruo0auOi8Please respect copyright.PENANAxaTMyl5UzF

"You watched the whole thing?" I asked as I finally got closer.copyright protection4PENANAeDR3sLpe698Please respect copyright.PENANAi5wxUputPO

"Pretty much," said Seunghoon.copyright protection4PENANAm1gTD4Rc1T8Please respect copyright.PENANArK5PnAGYei

"Okay, so who do you think is a better dancer?" Zoey asked.copyright protection4PENANAiokKTJK3dz8Please respect copyright.PENANAKMsDz1YEWy

"Zoey," I gave her that look telling her that it wasn't necessary.copyright protection4PENANAmscewEZWS68Please respect copyright.PENANAjeDQMygh15

"No, like, seriously," Zoey went on completely ignoring me. "Whose the best?"copyright protection4PENANA6e8m8MrZYs8Please respect copyright.PENANA5tQbjdM0c0

Mino and Seunghoon both 8Please respect copyright.PENANAiWNKAmMz0I
looked at each other and I didn't want to know what was running through 8Please respect copyright.PENANA7kXLaJkr0m
their minds. They smiled and went on to look at Zoey and I.copyright protection4PENANASgRd1LWMPa8Please respect copyright.PENANAw6Pnh8B38N

"I think Sam is a better dancer," said Seunghoon.copyright protection4PENANAlcDxqacq648Please respect copyright.PENANA4rKRckeYUf

"Well, I think Zoey is," said Mino.copyright protection4PENANAxcjFzrs0rq8Please respect copyright.PENANAG2zDNKn7bo

Zoey smiled to herself. "And it's a tie. We need more votes."copyright protection4PENANAtkHlxI6uvW8Please respect copyright.PENANAtIuj6LsHPB

"Zoey can you just drop the whole thing? It's not really necessary," I said.copyright protection4PENANAEQ8inzsAZz8Please respect copyright.PENANAvU2fLeA0cu

"Where is Seungyoon and Jinwoo?" Zoey asked, ignoring me again. "Didn't you all come together?"copyright protection4PENANAFxMYclqEmS8Please respect copyright.PENANAfTwOxkzUsL

"We met the other Toxins downstairs and they decided to stick with them," Mino answered. copyright protection4PENANA5PcNbJwhe18Please respect copyright.PENANAiVtNfzzIho

"We will wait for them and then Sam and I can dance again and see who is the best."copyright protection4PENANAdSRmafVDPU8Please respect copyright.PENANAjMim14AB4N

I shook my head at Zoey and said nothing. She could be so persistent at times and right now, I couldn't do anything to stop her.copyright protection4PENANAcurYtEjTjG8Please respect copyright.PENANA6kHC8eWI9o

"Seunghoon, you I need to talk," I said as I looked at him.copyright protection4PENANAMpvYcGIIYW8Please respect copyright.PENANAtskWfAwOiN

"Ya, sure. What is it?" Seunghoon asked.copyright protection4PENANAJcPAy0PtDF8Please respect copyright.PENANAdBzwXBBydG

I nudged my head to the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAlj03V9hSRr
side telling him to follow me. I went over to the wall and leaned my 8Please respect copyright.PENANAhkTCh9cOYu
back on to it. I had the back heel of my right foot pressing against the8Please respect copyright.PENANACc6bI3NkC0
wall as I was staring at Seunghoon as he came closer.copyright protection4PENANAoP9QOCv8wP8Please respect copyright.PENANA0Yj01fai71

"I want to know everything," I said with my arms folded.copyright protection4PENANAOiekhr0Z9Z8Please respect copyright.PENANAKpmE1ENdtM

Seunghoon lips were 8Please respect copyright.PENANAH5YOhHS41u
raised to a smile. And it was a corky one. That meant he knew what I was8Please respect copyright.PENANA41sn2tCcMK
talking about. I wished he could stop doing that. He was making me lose8Please respect copyright.PENANAew9AaafYnI
focus.copyright protection4PENANAWTbMuKMkeq8Please respect copyright.PENANAK5NJU4qM8r

"You aren't letting this go, are you?" he asked with his eyebrow raised.copyright protection4PENANAZCf8t4LYch8Please respect copyright.PENANAgdtJAvddIZ

"The others might, but I8Please respect copyright.PENANAXWw7xHhMFF
haven't," I said. "And I can also bet, the BigBang members aren't going8Please respect copyright.PENANAvqLi9Fnzsv
to either. So, were you the one at the park hiding behind the trees 8Please respect copyright.PENANA1JIusj0FwI
when TOP came to pick me up?"copyright protection4PENANAN0A1kRslRC8Please respect copyright.PENANAFuFbCcSTZy

Seunghoon took a step closer and answered, "yes."copyright protection4PENANAkOvwA0hmkv8Please respect copyright.PENANAzuYlN81aIt

"And the one who was standing behind the door when I was alone in the recording studio and I chased you down the hall?"copyright protection4PENANAMj72rA6czj8Please respect copyright.PENANAGJcpeFIekf

He again took a step closer. "Yes."copyright protection4PENANAumj4oDWRZO8Please respect copyright.PENANAX0KDcmP5gP

Well, that made sense 8Please respect copyright.PENANADQjCb6Kchs
since the time I was chasing him down the hall, I never caught him 8Please respect copyright.PENANAGXbTmqy4ET
because he had disappeared when I reached the lobby and no one had seen 8Please respect copyright.PENANAkCT4f5r5bH
him. Only a person who knew YG could know where to go without being 8Please respect copyright.PENANAUOxeqJlaWC
seen.copyright protection4PENANAtjCZQcZ7zj8Please respect copyright.PENANADCzPwVf40U

I hadn't realised it 8Please respect copyright.PENANAYkwSpMYQR9
till now that I was looking up at him. He was so tall and he was looking8Please respect copyright.PENANAyMX61oPmzL
down at me, his eyes never leaving mine. I gulped at how close he was 8Please respect copyright.PENANAZcoy1VugZu
that I could feel his body warmth. And that made me pretty 8Please respect copyright.PENANAbYPHQeuO5m
uncomfortable.copyright protection4PENANADmDLp4mwhV8Please respect copyright.PENANAXE9UKajzwS

"So, its been you the whole time?" I asked as I looked away, trying to ignore him and how close he was.copyright protection4PENANAPMh9RGNNxM8Please respect copyright.PENANAlw4K46FynF

"Well, yes," he 8Please respect copyright.PENANA3yDSgt7Khd
answered. "The others knew about it and they didn't like the idea of me 8Please respect copyright.PENANA6fRfaCqtbX
stalking you. But I couldn't because I'm such a big fan of The Toxins."copyright protection4PENANAC16e0Xr0418Please respect copyright.PENANAlxtqixxX6U

"If you're such a fan why didn't you stalk the others as well?" I asked as I looked at him. "I'm not the only Toxin."copyright protection4PENANAkInXtN2Pjk8Please respect copyright.PENANAD9sg2JKat2

"Apparently you happen to be my bias," said Seunghoon as he leaned closer and whispered in my ear.copyright protection4PENANAK962iYI5Mf8Please respect copyright.PENANAnAhfQrRgV3

I blushed and I was a 8Please respect copyright.PENANAdgAGHSeeQk
little surprised that he used the word "bias." In Korea, most people 8Please respect copyright.PENANA8tuBKxkuHO
refer to that word when it was comes to the person who tends to be a 8Please respect copyright.PENANAw5oOkefbvb
personal favourite or most liked especially in relation to k-pop 8Please respect copyright.PENANAeIsPp9IEoy
celebrities.copyright protection4PENANASohYDiV4i08Please respect copyright.PENANAZx2t8M1tgI

Seunghoon playfully tapped the tip of my nose and he laughed. "You look so cute when you blush. Has anyone ever told you that?"copyright protection4PENANA5DItAbhD1A8Please respect copyright.PENANAhMNGB7VRjq

"Well, yes," I said as I shrugged my shoulders.copyright protection4PENANAXLK4N22w8O8Please respect copyright.PENANA2y9unzD5d2

"I bet most of the BigBang members say that about you."copyright protection4PENANAL0d3ZQlVUD8Please respect copyright.PENANAEczGGHsHbI

"No, they don't," I lied8Please respect copyright.PENANAqtvd96l5XF
and Seunghoon laughed. He could clearly see through me because I was 8Please respect copyright.PENANAwZdFuAf8Gt
blushing too much. I shoved him aside and walked away. Luckily, the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAalFJ1mrt4C
others had arrived.copyright protection4PENANAV0hEuRQLvR8Please respect copyright.PENANAcu6IIfO4lM

"Good, the two groups are complete," said Zoey as she clapped her hands together.copyright protection4PENANAmtC6xq9AWi8Please respect copyright.PENANAJRMWxgxMoe

"A 'hi' would be nice, don't you think?" Jinwoo suggested as he walked alongside Christine.copyright protection4PENANApIjCLjt6eo8Please respect copyright.PENANAfyzViAiJ4m

"That's Zoey," I said. "How are you two doing today?" I asked Seungyoon and Jinwoo.copyright protection4PENANAKao1OTTFEo8Please respect copyright.PENANAmhRsZAIOE3

"We're great," Seungyoon answered. "And you?"copyright protection4PENANAw1S98pzi0w8Please respect copyright.PENANAAoUnlsDSf2

"Awesome," I replied.copyright protection4PENANAApeU20dv7s8Please respect copyright.PENANA7vBGqThJCm

"Okay, Sam get over here," said Zoey as she took hold of my hand and dragged me with her.copyright protection4PENANATRCiTrbM6Q8Please respect copyright.PENANA6YDXqDy9rc

"What the....Zoey!" I tried to pull my arm away from her grip but I was still being dragged along either way.copyright protection4PENANAbCR3MZtlht8Please respect copyright.PENANAc2B7qWz4PO

"What's going on?" Mike asked. I bet he had a confused look on his face.copyright protection4PENANASST7MW70re8Please respect copyright.PENANA6WjIDKBVte

Zoey stopped when she and I stood a few feet from the others. She turned to look at them.copyright protection4PENANAsl64DZwPMC8Please respect copyright.PENANAhzcVxDz5M1

"Sam and I are going to have a dance battle," she said.copyright protection4PENANAFYfx21xwnP8Please respect copyright.PENANAiZ3T6uPFyE

"Huh?" Christine looked confused.copyright protection4PENANAZgHTnuPuvh8Please respect copyright.PENANAuFBNnfxYa1

"Is that really necessary?" Daniel asked. "You should be having a dance battle with Mike not Sam."copyright protection4PENANAJXCP2gPz5C8Please respect copyright.PENANAcsApo83XdQ

"And besides, you and I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAYvP2pVxeB5
have countless dance battles back home," I said after I pulled my hand 8Please respect copyright.PENANAT5KvS7Kq6V
away from her grip. "If you ask me, we were just having fun until Mino 8Please respect copyright.PENANArin2IMbLKo
and Seunghoon showed up."copyright protection4PENANAbLAriDtP9R8Please respect copyright.PENANABJUqMjmjyX

"Zoey, Sam is a better dancer than you. Period," said Mike as he unscrewed a bottle of water and drank some.copyright protection4PENANAF97m2uRSZn8Please respect copyright.PENANAos29XVhIln

"That's not what Mino said," said Zoey with her hands on her hips.copyright protection4PENANA9IkMxn2nW78Please respect copyright.PENANADNF1QoN19x

"You should have seen the dance battle these two had," said Mino. "It was pretty awesome."copyright protection4PENANAZ8SzAbd30m8Please respect copyright.PENANAqLhlb3Exmd

"I would also love to see it," said Jinwoo.copyright protection4PENANAVGv23yxUqw8Please respect copyright.PENANAvLFxUCtbkP

"Pretty, please?" Seungyoon pleaded with his hands clapped together and looking at me with those cute adorable eyes of his.copyright protection4PENANAhAeCmM0o9X8Please respect copyright.PENANAzYCfZtDNvM

Apparently, he wasn't 8Please respect copyright.PENANAlVxChJFVh2
the only one doing the puppy eye thing. The four WINNER members were all8Please respect copyright.PENANA9MNOkIrOUL
doing but as they looked at me. Mino even had to pout his lips and that8Please respect copyright.PENANADtJgIJJlwe
just made him look even more adorable.copyright protection4PENANAw85oIGzVJA8Please respect copyright.PENANA8RaGtrq9nH

I wanted to look away but I couldn't. They were really making me do something I didn't want to do.copyright protection4PENANAiFgOHjmeeN8Please respect copyright.PENANAbwuYlPHMDB

"Come on, Sam," said Zoey. "Look, they are even doing the puppy eyes. So cute."copyright protection4PENANALwnZ9JL98V8Please respect copyright.PENANAyg5hwN1g9x

I rolled my eyes and sighed. "Fine. Let's battle," I said as I walked over to the audio Beats by Dre pill.copyright protection4PENANA7E4d3NTCJD8Please respect copyright.PENANAvipGYS8p1v

"Yes!" I heard the four 8Please respect copyright.PENANA6d2BcnqT94
of them cheer. I smiled at their reaction as I got my phone and looked 8Please respect copyright.PENANAvHlAZSn18x
at the track list. Then, something came to me.copyright protection4PENANAd1iuPZObe28Please respect copyright.PENANAyEPXkOQsdS

"Change of plans, Zoey,"8Please respect copyright.PENANAYk60Viomby
I said as I turned around. Everyone's eyes were now on me. "If you want8Please respect copyright.PENANAqGgMgfEEhM
this dance battle, I suggest we pick another song."copyright protection4PENANAZZzmZI6LSe8Please respect copyright.PENANAbPr1NLPEd2

"Okay, fine," said Zoey. "I'm up for it."copyright protection4PENANAGZSLcVy6yh8Please respect copyright.PENANAxcmDdiVBE7

"Since we danced to one of your favourite songs, I'll pick my own." I gave her a smirk. "And it's a k-pop song."copyright protection4PENANAJMj1g815kg8Please respect copyright.PENANA95NqR4FvJW

"This just got interesting," said Mino.copyright protection4PENANA7jfHGfpM0i8Please respect copyright.PENANAiUMJVAvLeJ

"Fine, whatever." Zoey rolled her eyes. "What song are we dancing to?"copyright protection4PENANA0HiTtuP1Ao8Please respect copyright.PENANANMVap8skK7

"Ringa Linga (링가 링가) by Taeyang," I beamed. "One of my personal favourites."copyright protection4PENANAjjaClrKmw58Please respect copyright.PENANArUcfk4k0A3

"Taeyang is going to 8Please respect copyright.PENANAXTYKCUk8Fz
love this," said Mike as he went over to his gym bag to get his phone. 8Please respect copyright.PENANARtlNDKV65G
"Good song choice by the way, Sam. It's also one of my favourites."copyright protection4PENANACEpSl57LR88Please respect copyright.PENANAdxApNUu7U4

"Thanks," I smiled at my brother who had his phone ready to capture a video. I turned to look at Zoey. "Ready for this."copyright protection4PENANA3SQmMjQBlr8Please respect copyright.PENANAaSX8CA3WII

"Totally," said Zoey, as she looked back at me.copyright protection4PENANAZELag7B1t88Please respect copyright.PENANAwAbRnPCjVI

I tapped the track on my8Please respect copyright.PENANAZ8fAy2u29p
phone and quickly put the phone next to the audio pill and quickly 8Please respect copyright.PENANA6kh3tUEwQm
rushed to stand face to face with Zoey.copyright protection4PENANA66MvZ8A7Ts8Please respect copyright.PENANAenXqekfREa

When the song started, I8Please respect copyright.PENANAzDjOdRRIU0
took the dance floor and danced. Then Zoey stepped in. We kept taking 8Please respect copyright.PENANA80lq4OkJlb
turns, but whenever it came to the chorus, she and I would dance 8Please respect copyright.PENANA5Ay31NngE1
together, dancing to the actual moves done in the actual music video. I 8Please respect copyright.PENANArdFK2TCTBw
was a little surprised dancing to the moves because I had never tried to8Please respect copyright.PENANAUKxfaC4vlq
practice on them before. All I ever did was watch. And Zoey was also 8Please respect copyright.PENANAGr1fu22SiG
doing a pretty good with the moves too.copyright protection4PENANAfXk6j7paIK8Please respect copyright.PENANATKUzvWs7Q4

When the song was done and Zoey and I stood there in our stance, there was a loud cheer coming from the others.copyright protection4PENANACIpoTFvvGY8Please respect copyright.PENANAEKOc0YO5t9

"Wow, totally mind blowing," said Jinwoo.copyright protection4PENANADN5qj4yUbs8Please respect copyright.PENANAvaAwp5yrXR

"Whenever it came to the8Please respect copyright.PENANA8RB2q6ZSeP
chorus, it didn't look like you were having a dance battle at all," 8Please respect copyright.PENANAWSAL4AJTFd
sais Seungyoon. "I've to say, that was pretty sweet to watch."copyright protection4PENANAmrqHyKOYVx8Please respect copyright.PENANA2boDINJhfG

"I loved everything about this dance battle," said Mino. "I could watch you two all day long."copyright protection4PENANAIxf8V9NqEu8Please respect copyright.PENANA8nxKpXRpQ5

"Thanks, guys," I said.copyright protection4PENANApiivIBAhvM8Please respect copyright.PENANAeNYPy3piW5

"I loved that you danced to that song," said Christine.copyright protection4PENANAKRdazMVnKQ8Please respect copyright.PENANAvZhUDZHmgW

"Now, coming to my 8Please respect copyright.PENANA2pjA9Jx08n
question," started Zoey, trying to gather her breath. I rolled my eyes 8Please respect copyright.PENANA6nb5cJ8C15
as I walked away and got a water bottle from Christine. "Who do you 8Please respect copyright.PENANAIx5ZrIZ85g
think is a better dancer?"copyright protection4PENANAUtnaBjjoKX8Please respect copyright.PENANA58FpIP8gQh

"Wait," I said before anyone could say anything. I put the bottle of water to my lips and drank some water. "Don't answer that."copyright protection4PENANATagbFYMgfi8Please respect copyright.PENANAEXFP2SyauA

"Why?" Zoey asked.copyright protection4PENANA20agaJ256M8Please respect copyright.PENANAgd7lcz4cIa

"I think you and I both 8Please respect copyright.PENANAsNi7c0XlhN
danced really well and there is no need to ask. Besides, you and I have 8Please respect copyright.PENANACVKiKNajYF
never practised on those moves in our lives, especially on the chorus. 8Please respect copyright.PENANATeS1A5AEhi
That counts for something, right?"copyright protection4PENANAV1fjbQDvfn8Please respect copyright.PENANAOJ67Qi8ODp

"I agree with Sam," said Daniel. "You two were great."copyright protection4PENANAt9yJkeH7uX8Please respect copyright.PENANABgkmy59Ip7

"Sam is right," said Seungyoon. "I wouldn't also fuss about it if I were you."copyright protection4PENANApwXzM8jOdp8Please respect copyright.PENANAnjmgkWlVBC

"I still want to know though," said Zoey.copyright protection4PENANAB9qQtCH67W8Please respect copyright.PENANAeqlkxcDF0h

"Fine, I've a better idea," said Mike. "Why don't we ask the whole world to vote?"copyright protection4PENANAuA53jqh1yL8Please respect copyright.PENANA4CxpY6v8OU

"Wait, you want to ask our fans?" Daniel asked.copyright protection4PENANAZYiWy54RUi8Please respect copyright.PENANAfceBszyNu9

"Well, ya." Mike 8Please respect copyright.PENANAqJzL46XHMY
shrugged his shoulders. "I don't want to vote because I think it's 8Please respect copyright.PENANAZQAwgzCMHr
pretty obvious who is the best." He put so much emphasis on that last 8Please respect copyright.PENANAHXEVz7u7VZ
sentence as he looked at Zoey.copyright protection4PENANAgvsHlWk33r8Please respect copyright.PENANAhlJQ6NX4vJ

"Mike's right," said Zoey as she approached him. "Let our fans choose who won the dance battle."copyright protection4PENANAZy25BmwSn48Please respect copyright.PENANA3uAD1QdDCU

"This is pathetic," I muttered to myself as I drank some more water.copyright protection4PENANAEm2XjA2osW8Please respect copyright.PENANA5jSJerQJzL

"I also think it will be8Please respect copyright.PENANAIQ7rGdfDiK
great if the fans see this," said Jinwoo. "They will love it and will 8Please respect copyright.PENANAnmeXZgNdUq
obviously bring out a better opinion."copyright protection4PENANAGJr9qN5LQ98Please respect copyright.PENANA8ZK0JZsAI1

"See, even Jinwoo agrees," said Zoey as she looked at me.copyright protection4PENANAdQHfViBsbZ8Please respect copyright.PENANAlrSsTyG8cZ

"Count me out of it," I 8Please respect copyright.PENANATzl8xlokyi
said as I raised my hands midway in the air and took a step back. "I 8Please respect copyright.PENANALGhvH1u9Bd
don't care what you people do at the end of the day."copyright protection4PENANAwPlzNEaP2C8Please respect copyright.PENANAbXE3qyC7HO

"Fine, I'll create a 8Please respect copyright.PENANA6AosIVN7gm
voting poll and upload the video. At the end of the day, we will see how8Please respect copyright.PENANAp13HxKI2Tk
all this comes out," said Mike, as he tapped away on his phone. "Though8Please respect copyright.PENANAf4hU7HtJOa
I'm pretty sure Sam will win."copyright protection4PENANALJldTM0ZxQ8Please respect copyright.PENANAyVKXntTbA9

"You're just saying that because she's your sister," said Zoey. "I know I'm going to win."copyright protection4PENANA8KHPZD7B5j8Please respect copyright.PENANAy0bBIJmqLf

"No, it's because I'm speaking the truth. Daniel, back me up on this one."copyright protection4PENANAAC9WbWBlLE8Please respect copyright.PENANAL1k2WsKpcz

"Don't look at me, I would rather see what the fans think," said Daniel.copyright protection4PENANAYxnjKh5LgD8Please respect copyright.PENANAzLukJSOC4p

Zoey and Mike soon got 8Please respect copyright.PENANAMDpYe7HAyt
into their little debate while the others listened. I decided to ignore 8Please respect copyright.PENANAQjvbmrE7QQ
them and went over to get my phone and the audio pill. Looked like 8Please respect copyright.PENANAGqCbLl4zX9
practise was already over since everyone was now talking about the dance8Please respect copyright.PENANAYKMoI0vqB4
battle.copyright protection4PENANAConjenWmZ28Please respect copyright.PENANAUsopDKQhSH

I got my phone and the 8Please respect copyright.PENANA8y8KKT6Os4
pill in my other hand. I was checking my phone for any messages until I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAYrOKPxLkXm
soon felt a sudden presence of someone standing next to me.copyright protection4PENANAFzEOwPL7bw8Please respect copyright.PENANApRPNgsy7Kq

"Well, you don't seem so enthusiastic about the whole thing," came Jinwoo.copyright protection4PENANAL949tPqzBG8Please respect copyright.PENANAOSYXDJQJyi

I turned to look at him 8Please respect copyright.PENANAOwKChz92U7
and he had that friendly smile on his face. I smiled back at him in an 8Please respect copyright.PENANApjZe6gGEnr
instant. Felt more like an impulse. His smile was so warm, you couldn't 8Please respect copyright.PENANA4ck39XNZHl
easily ignore it. Even a person who had been grumpy the whole day would 8Please respect copyright.PENANAivS289Cibw
smile if they were to look at him.copyright protection4PENANAcd5zxjXuFW8Please respect copyright.PENANApAPoPWFvA2

"No," I replied, still with a smile on my face. "I don't want to know what the fans think and I'm clearly not in a mood."copyright protection4PENANAwkwa920Uac8Please respect copyright.PENANAXFfhJpfwpW

"If you ask me, I think you clearly won the dance battle," he said.copyright protection4PENANArVmv4PlvoW8Please respect copyright.PENANARIsKLBTnT4

"Thanks, but make sure Zoey doesn't hear that. I wouldn't like to see her yell at you."copyright protection4PENANAbBahaHA8bf8Please respect copyright.PENANAUjFJIuGn0h

"Trust me, I wouldn't. Mike did say she is a drama queen for a reason."copyright protection4PENANA4HABSJESEO8Please respect copyright.PENANAqXWFeG4tcu

"You're right about that."copyright protection4PENANA45KqBPgXkF8Please respect copyright.PENANAq4cTOXvHlo

I looked behind me with a8Please respect copyright.PENANAMfIsYqWFOW
smile and I could see the debate heating up a little. I wasn't too 8Please respect copyright.PENANAWeUTT9zYDM
worried about my brother and Zoey. They might have their differences, 8Please respect copyright.PENANAs3RFXFCsnX
but they never got into a serious fight, better yet a physical one. The 8Please respect copyright.PENANARadACb1yRP
two of them arguing was an everyday drama I never got to stress over.copyright protection4PENANATwg3NrLozW8Please respect copyright.PENANAvN3pGXygVc

"They aren't going to stop, are they?" Jinwoo asked. copyright protection4PENANAEEEefxYTpD8Please respect copyright.PENANA2ofT3dzGGX

"Not anytime soon," I said as I looked at him. "What are we planning to do today, anyway? We all can't stay here at YG."copyright protection4PENANAIuIsVkhchB8Please respect copyright.PENANAEy7R8K3ajU

"Have no clue. Any bright ideas?"copyright protection4PENANARb87fVy0j88Please respect copyright.PENANAZOI2epZNFV

"No, not yet actually." I stared at my phone to look at the time. "It's almost ten. Collins expects us to be here till lunch."copyright protection4PENANAXXMBc28bWy8Please respect copyright.PENANAZIjfBntb4a

"Maybe we can sneak out. And go some place to have fun."copyright protection4PENANAOE3x6ZRnb98Please respect copyright.PENANA8JIgAR0E1k

"Ya, you're right. Though we all shouldn't be seen together or else it will raise questions."copyright protection4PENANAZ2k7az2JAm8Please respect copyright.PENANAz09h2nG2bm

"May I ask what you two are up to?" Christine asked as she approached us with Daniel.copyright protection4PENANARxkD9xGiIC8Please respect copyright.PENANAXb4grGEURI

"We're planning a way to sneak out of the place without being seen together," I replied.copyright protection4PENANAQwgU3mTVK58Please respect copyright.PENANA40rNg2EhHG

"Sneak out? Why?" Daniel asked.copyright protection4PENANA4J8pQiZT1z8Please respect copyright.PENANABgGKyJ8fMk

"We made plans to hang out with WINNER, didn't we? And we can't do it here."copyright protection4PENANAfT6Axf7dxP8Please respect copyright.PENANABJvG0WmERe

"Then, how are we going to get out?" Christine asked.copyright protection4PENANAPom5iqsclc8Please respect copyright.PENANAnVePIvSnMz

"It's a Sunday and there isn't a lot of people around," said Jinwoo. "It's not going to be that complicated."copyright protection4PENANAhqVpQLIPFK8Please respect copyright.PENANA3oQK9puiEg

"I sure hope so," I 8Please respect copyright.PENANACgZ8W05jFW
said. I turned to look at Christine and Daniel. "Let's all hit the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAx3SLSAgLY3
showers real quick and then we can leave this place."copyright protection4PENANAoVDuvaKDnh8Please respect copyright.PENANAl1rcMBBgTf

"What about those two?" 8Please respect copyright.PENANAxwwxEsxJLc
Daniel asked with his thumb pointing at Zoey and Mike behind him who 8Please respect copyright.PENANAFifx488kU6
were still debating. It looked it would turn into an argument anytime 8Please respect copyright.PENANAnf8PsVq3bk
soon.copyright protection4PENANAtcGPiZgKbC8Please respect copyright.PENANAjIQPfuiNe3

"They will notice when 8Please respect copyright.PENANAZUmfsqoBLj
we're gone," I said. "If the others ask where we are, tell them we've 8Please respect copyright.PENANAH9yQY1Lp4X
gone to freshen up, will you, Jinwoo?"copyright protection4PENANAWt2STSDBHj8Please respect copyright.PENANAJnGAdW5vJj

"Sure," he said with a smile.copyright protection4PENANAl6eZAJ9lmx8Please respect copyright.PENANAzJeVZGmoh8

Christine, Daniel and I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAHZhgQfhBFl
went over to get our gyms bags and we walked out of the studio without 8Please respect copyright.PENANAzpJfZWc4sV
the others even noticing, except for Jinwoo of course.copyright protection4PENANACPKjF2iVNt8Please respect copyright.PENANAo1FCXFik3A

Twenty minutes later, I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAsKzJ0pZh1F
was walking out of the girl's shower room all freshened and dressed up 8Please respect copyright.PENANADB4mR3j38M
in a white t-shirt with blue polkadots and matching black jeans with 8Please respect copyright.PENANAZwNF9Lkr5n
flat black boots. I was carrying my gym bag and was walking alongside 8Please respect copyright.PENANA2y7Ci72ip3
Christine who wore a pretty apple green summer dress. We had left Zoey 8Please respect copyright.PENANAX2F2pw6IAe
in the shower room, still patching herself up.copyright protection4PENANAxJWABPtfrb8Please respect copyright.PENANAvzLieU4yma

"Well, you look pretty today in that dress," I said as I looked at Christine.copyright protection4PENANAyNhMMSwWdT8Please respect copyright.PENANAVoI301a2jA

"Oh, thanks," said Christine as she smiled. "I just thought of wearing it."copyright protection4PENANAtQId9ofrj38Please respect copyright.PENANA6hCMk1iqKT

"Why? Anything special?"copyright protection4PENANAVRMSsoIWE98Please respect copyright.PENANAFfsqyHlCgH

"No, why do you ask?" Christine looked at me with an eyebrow raised.copyright protection4PENANA7cWpZJiwFw8Please respect copyright.PENANAMc6vf7xq9R

"Oh, nothing," I stared 8Please respect copyright.PENANA0g8D2tElTp
up at the ceiling as we were soon approaching the men's shower room. "I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAeyEHZdpkQG
thought since that dress is so pretty and nice, you must have worn it 8Please respect copyright.PENANA2CS888fFzp
either for a special occasion or for a special someone."copyright protection4PENANAp8m7mwwCYP8Please respect copyright.PENANAxAGFdJ9S52

We stopped right at the open entrance of the men's shower room and Christine looked at me.copyright protection4PENANAFTHrLaQu6u8Please respect copyright.PENANAikBX1BarW0

"There is no special occasion," said Christine.copyright protection4PENANADeHADGkWdZ8Please respect copyright.PENANA7YD07M9nrI

"Then it's for a special someone, right?" I looked her directly in the eye and I had a playful smile on my face.copyright protection4PENANAsC8PKulg6k8Please respect copyright.PENANANYjuExdOpi

"It's not that either." She rolled her eyes.copyright protection4PENANA6LdNdZX3t48Please respect copyright.PENANAQIDsFF4P60

"Your eyes say it all, Christine. And I know it's one of the guys from WINNER."copyright protection4PENANAx7ieIWV2S88Please respect copyright.PENANAQeZte6fnuH

"What are you talking about?"copyright protection4PENANA1lLaavEwLK8Please respect copyright.PENANA6hGpLlWZ9m

"You like Jinwoo, don't you?"copyright protection4PENANAQRv4FI4DMx8Please respect copyright.PENANAi04VtJAxzG

Christine's mouth fell 8Please respect copyright.PENANAxpVwS9D8x7
open and she closed it immediately. I could see that she was blushing 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPDpw3bR0a1
and she managed to look away thinking that I wouldn't notice.copyright protection4PENANAHjFZynVuqO8Please respect copyright.PENANAmt1roubZ1K

"No, I don't," she said.8Please respect copyright.PENANAGz9B62KJai
"Jinwoo is a nice guy but that doesn't mean I 'like like' him. Maybe I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAR0WgwZsoZD
do like him but only as a fan girl."copyright protection4PENANADs9oCkTgQF8Please respect copyright.PENANAqm6rOvWZuY

"Please, I saw the way 8Please respect copyright.PENANAJaxTLEVwn6
you looked at him yesterday and today. There is no doubt in my mind that8Please respect copyright.PENANAPf7LvEKY3K
you really like him. If you ask me, you two would make a great couple."copyright protection4PENANA1HwxLcgQP28Please respect copyright.PENANABt7HUVcRUG

"Stop dreaming, Sam," 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPERnxD1t9p
said Christine. "Don't forget Collins' golden rule. We can't date any of8Please respect copyright.PENANAzYEHJalu8o
these guys. And besides, I only like Jinwoo as a friend and nothing 8Please respect copyright.PENANAfKRmrMhEDc
more."copyright protection4PENANAoxl3wUrsoR8Please respect copyright.PENANAltQcQnPSQZ

"Ya, right," I said as I8Please respect copyright.PENANAiqYX7I8tch
folded my arms. "I saw the way you looked at the both of us when we 8Please respect copyright.PENANARr1IOtv678
were discussing on how we were going to sneak out of here. You had that 8Please respect copyright.PENANAisB8Fswvln
weird look on your face."copyright protection4PENANAh1jqqVLjcB8Please respect copyright.PENANAuENsBVaKon

"What weird look?"copyright protection4PENANAZdjwL4I1Vy8Please respect copyright.PENANA1gP2YDwtJD

"The jealous one."copyright protection4PENANA3j5pmCjO5I8Please respect copyright.PENANAC26eaMGGh2

"Spare me the drama, Sam."copyright protection4PENANAFmKZNaVyu78Please respect copyright.PENANA3MGRfiNp2b

"If Zoey was the one 8Please respect copyright.PENANAN4sC7qgDU0
talking to you about this right now, you wouldn't have the chance to 8Please respect copyright.PENANAgx2nLd9sTq
breathe. At least I'm not even pushing you to admit that you like 8Please respect copyright.PENANAvXccPsuCRx
Jinwoo."copyright protection4PENANA9tlsZ6xI7t8Please respect copyright.PENANAOFBgiIHzlC

"You do have a point," said Christine as she nodded her head and stared at the ceiling.copyright protection4PENANAgbMlA8YUW38Please respect copyright.PENANAzCaCZVP9oJ

"Which one? The part for Zoey or the fact that you like Jinwoo?"copyright protection4PENANACCpmBcxwL18Please respect copyright.PENANAATHN5wfA97

"Very smart, Sam." She frowned at me. "But I'm not falling for that one."copyright protection4PENANAEVvZnv6Vde8Please respect copyright.PENANA7YMJe4sWEN

I winced. She caught me. Now I wouldn't know if she really liked him or not.copyright protection4PENANAoupbQ0kOUh8Please respect copyright.PENANAzdqJPqFFz3

The boys suddenly appeared coming out of the men's shower all dressed up and ready to go.copyright protection4PENANARwThTvuq1f8Please respect copyright.PENANAo9W5W2CbCL

"Well, someone looks nice today," said Daniel as he looked at Christine.copyright protection4PENANAsGaXGysMuG8Please respect copyright.PENANAjKK5tZaVVO

"Oh, thanks, Daniel," said Christine as she smiled.copyright protection4PENANA1Tar40roOl8Please respect copyright.PENANAJv2aeRATxa

"See, even Daniel has noticed that you're glowing," I said as I smiled at Christine.copyright protection4PENANAFGRyXL3rb58Please respect copyright.PENANAWVjT1gWDsy

"She is," said Mike, as he looked at Christine. "Anything special going on?"copyright protection4PENANAGELRBsp4eT8Please respect copyright.PENANApLi9RM81I4

"No!" Christine answered quickly and shaking her head.copyright protection4PENANALgMWHQW8eL8Please respect copyright.PENANAQsASCOKdIh

Mike gave Christine a 8Please respect copyright.PENANAnFdHyeXuRq
look and shrugged his shoulders afterwards, brushing it off. But I knew 8Please respect copyright.PENANA3hcmq38z5R
that look very well. He had a hunch that something was up. And he wasn't8Please respect copyright.PENANAEVjeOW3y9L
wrong about that.copyright protection4PENANAuUrmsp7wRj8Please respect copyright.PENANAQwq3dZhbu9

We decided to go back to8Please respect copyright.PENANABxqOTRR2rX
the dance studio where WINNER were waiting for us, hoping that Zoey 8Please respect copyright.PENANAU6SdlH9ofi
would catch up with us sooner or later. And when we got into the studio,8Please respect copyright.PENANAa6PB92Aqd4
this happened:copyright protection4PENANACyXopzQPE58Please respect copyright.PENANAAPC0DwSvyj

"Wow, you two ladies are looking fine," said Mino, his eyes fixed on Christine and I.copyright protection4PENANAIplvl2libA8Please respect copyright.PENANAstplGK3Q9i

"Just magnificent," said Seungyoon.copyright protection4PENANA3Fvv1XV8uN8Please respect copyright.PENANA9jpYUy0vZe

"Thanks," Christine and I replied at the same time.copyright protection4PENANAr6lpvLYlAC8Please respect copyright.PENANAAz4cAIJsdi

"You're all just smoking hot," said Seunghoon. His eyes then fully rested on me. "Especially you, Sam."copyright protection4PENANAqi2LNoO9G08Please respect copyright.PENANALGLb2rW5i6

I wanted to frown at him8Please respect copyright.PENANAorqNpklqQl
but I ended up blushing instead. He smiled at me and winked. At that 8Please respect copyright.PENANAFqUJDurmXF
moment, I felt like my heart was about to explode.copyright protection4PENANAKKFfgGdbPI8Please respect copyright.PENANAEJlpUnRRs9

"I think Christine also looks really nice," said Jinwoo with a smile.copyright protection4PENANAYhPkGk5FFF8Please respect copyright.PENANAXRAnE0I0qz

I looked at Jinwoo and I8Please respect copyright.PENANAl5ZfPDKgZH
couldn't help but notice that smile on his face. I accidentally smiled 8Please respect copyright.PENANAVEqg4lEVc7
at him and then at Christine. Mike who stood beside her looked at me 8Please respect copyright.PENANA5aYFyDGgD6
with an eyebrow raised. I quickly looked away.copyright protection4PENANAi6YkRMIGVo8Please respect copyright.PENANAPYcPe1sYis

"Thanks," said Christine, as she blushed.copyright protection4PENANAGG9lWp29BS8Please respect copyright.PENANAGd77ubt97G

"Where is Zoey?" Seungyoon asked.copyright protection4PENANARAaHUR1ZwG8Please respect copyright.PENANAgcQfSoSyFw

"Making herself look like a barbie doll," said Daniel.copyright protection4PENANAFOMD8EpRll8Please respect copyright.PENANAEvuRkJTNIb

"Ya, that's how I would put it," I said with a smirk. "And she's taking forever. She should be here by now."copyright protection4PENANAg12pnYPq8q8Please respect copyright.PENANAgoonwTzZ2G

"Want to go and check up on her?" Mino asked.copyright protection4PENANAj00tHVkIVR8Please respect copyright.PENANAFjTwzLVsjA

"Good idea. Let's go."copyright protection4PENANApAFceOREFc8Please respect copyright.PENANAYY6tPqcJeU

"You're going with Mino?" Seunghoon asked.copyright protection4PENANA0We2lC1a2a8Please respect copyright.PENANAUvjjTQcsPf

"Do you have a problem with that?" I asked as I dropped my gym bag to the floor and folded my arms.copyright protection4PENANABmaCQSxbBs8Please respect copyright.PENANA9vz218NWA6

Before he could say 8Please respect copyright.PENANAxz4D2U4fDi
anything, I quickly turned around and started to walk out of the room. I8Please respect copyright.PENANAayOtRHj499
heard footsteps behind me and I could tell it was Mino. When we stepped8Please respect copyright.PENANAkiETkG28CC
out of the room, he was snickering.copyright protection4PENANA212Idhw4Vc8Please respect copyright.PENANAeacjNeeSuS

"You really put him in his place, didn't you?" Mino asked as we walked down the hall.copyright protection4PENANAhV8vYu8ZFb8Please respect copyright.PENANAbEqZ8iGsnP

"Just because I'm his 8Please respect copyright.PENANABH8gBtWDBz
bias doesn't mean he could follow me around," I said. "I mean, him being8Please respect copyright.PENANAgQJs9xHopb
in my closet last night was more than enough, don't you think?"copyright protection4PENANAagxlSndqyO8Please respect copyright.PENANAgAQHzYZfqn

"Ya, trying to hide in your closet was a pretty big surprise."copyright protection4PENANASBQVj3cQ888Please respect copyright.PENANA524diGGeji

"And you all helped him with it. How did you manage to get on our floor and trip the hotel lights anyway?"copyright protection4PENANA2q4bW2G42m8Please respect copyright.PENANAOA8y2h5KGv

"Actually, it was only 8Please respect copyright.PENANAWW6MEGKEWb
just your floor that we tripped the lights on. And if it came to coming 8Please respect copyright.PENANA11d6fvMVK6
to your floor, we pulled a few strings."copyright protection4PENANAfcDNxwaLWJ8Please respect copyright.PENANAdzGl7JDdtk

"How can I forget. You're WINNER." I rolled my eyes.copyright protection4PENANAAOkqKEtXuC8Please respect copyright.PENANAIqgPcVvXzr

Mino laughed and I heard him mutter, "cute." I pretended I never heard that and raised the corner of my lips to a smile.copyright protection4PENANA5w29IYcp3e8Please respect copyright.PENANA8BsmHHRuDC

When we got to the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAARbgdiZRwt
elevator, I was just about to push the elevator button when the doors 8Please respect copyright.PENANAbeTs45nz3X
suddenly flew open. My jaw dropped when I saw who was standing right 8Please respect copyright.PENANA0bytxgbpKP
inside the elevator.copyright protection4PENANALiro5YUgJQ8Please respect copyright.PENANA2kGdATwAL2

"You look really surprised to see me," said TOP, as he stepped out.copyright protection4PENANA0jFkJpZdmt8Please respect copyright.PENANA3WhWol2MV5

"I....." I cleared my throat. "I haven't seen you in a while now."copyright protection4PENANAQsZSCIRO7U8Please respect copyright.PENANAJWhhpPyBfi

"Did you miss me?" he asked as he gave me that bad boy smile of his and stepped closer, giving me a hug.copyright protection4PENANA2Sdtgjsbzc8Please respect copyright.PENANAqhC6vd02NL

"I did actually. I thought you might be busy with something these past days," I said as we broke away from each other.copyright protection4PENANA1AwGVg6Utt8Please respect copyright.PENANA5QInN6JQSE

"I was. And I see G-Dragon wasn't lying about what happened yesterday."copyright protection4PENANAnkVncx54lc8Please respect copyright.PENANAVBAdT02rBi

TOP turned to look at Mino who gave him a salute. TOP smiled as his eyes flew back to me.copyright protection4PENANAZo5cSmwkx58Please respect copyright.PENANAJ1zm85z87n

"You know you're going get in so much trouble, right?" TOP asked.copyright protection4PENANAwyF2fAimuM8Please respect copyright.PENANAUceCA1JjRB

"We know," I said. "I managed to try and convince Collins for us to come here. We will be sneaking out very soon."copyright protection4PENANAPS6LfjjkoF8Please respect copyright.PENANAXNdy17z4ya

"Sneaking out together? Don't you think that's too risky. No one should even know that you've already met."copyright protection4PENANAxn3CAWZ7gw8Please respect copyright.PENANAmicWFk1et8

"We came up with something," said Mino. "Don't you worry."copyright protection4PENANAcN5SQkt9HY8Please respect copyright.PENANAColQ1VRKeJ

"Well, if you're 8Please respect copyright.PENANAlcxzLyGkCf
planning to sneak out, then you better do it fast." TOP had a smirk on 8Please respect copyright.PENANAvYxHUc2Vrw
his face and I could tell something was up.copyright protection4PENANAWwQ3i5mBqL8Please respect copyright.PENANA44UqUVlLFA

"Wait a minute," I stopped TOP before he could say anything else. "Your manager is here, isn't he?"copyright protection4PENANAgX9kAKgARx8Please respect copyright.PENANAv1N2AyAhTd

"Did you just read my mind?" TOP asked. "I like that."copyright protection4PENANA64kbXbwrld8Please respect copyright.PENANAwob366g82I

"No, I read your body language." I put my palm over my forehead. "This is bad. Where is he?"copyright protection4PENANAphKgk2mHEM8Please respect copyright.PENANAF6MAwHvStb

"He's downstairs with some visitors," said TOP. "He plans on showing them around the place."copyright protection4PENANAsVKCflmwVe8Please respect copyright.PENANAtYdg1OPC5I

"And if he sees us together he is going to freak out," said Mino.copyright protection4PENANA32ioegzKHU8Please respect copyright.PENANAPC60Fc6Wl8

"What are you doing here anyway?" I asked TOP. "It's a Sunday."copyright protection4PENANAY6cJnwMJeq8Please respect copyright.PENANAF0fsAM96ED

"I came to see you guys 8Please respect copyright.PENANAi8BvoCkdeq
at the hotel and Lee told me you were here practising," TOP answered. 8Please respect copyright.PENANAV3224IebEz
"Which you aren't doing at the moment."copyright protection4PENANAwHlhjBDG7z8Please respect copyright.PENANAkkAzNamXh0

"We were done minutes ago. Right now, we have to figure out how we are going to dodge your dear manager."copyright protection4PENANAVaBdyPt8Aa8Please respect copyright.PENANAAz9c5xPpL3

"Ya, while you figure that out, they will be coming up any moment now."copyright protection4PENANA3zhgiFN4p18Please respect copyright.PENANAPH7RJczYne

"Okay, then you go and 8Please respect copyright.PENANAyIz8hmjDkA
tell the others not to leave," I instructed him. "I'll go down with Mino8Please respect copyright.PENANAEUaO6flVE7
to get Zoey as fast as we could."copyright protection4PENANAuVIQd2rRJy8Please respect copyright.PENANAZuO7lxkVvI

"I hate it when someone orders me around but I'll do it for you anyway," said TOP as he held my chin for a brief moment.copyright protection4PENANAqEJ1ShRmqr8Please respect copyright.PENANAa3qJcI6vmq

"Thanks," I said as I looked at Mino and he and I both went in the elevator.copyright protection4PENANAxu0OKjtxnS8Please respect copyright.PENANA61lgPrvbna

We headed downstairs to 8Please respect copyright.PENANAinE6u0EOWa
the shower room and just as we stepped out of the elevator, there was 8Please respect copyright.PENANAx6eXQqFWW2
Zoey in the hall, taking selfies with her phone.copyright protection4PENANAzSOhI2kaT38Please respect copyright.PENANAn33IjSaP3x

"There you are," I said as we walked up to her. "What took you so long?"copyright protection4PENANAIjHrlzJdVa8Please respect copyright.PENANAZmUEtpF7eB

"Trying to look good," 8Please respect copyright.PENANAiLIxIyYovU
said Zoey as she put her phone away in her gym bag. "Besides, I had to 8Please respect copyright.PENANAqSXtBhmL6q
take a few photos for my fans. They complain they haven't seen me in a 8Please respect copyright.PENANAi6MdKfCpnQ
while. What are you two doing here? I was just about to come up."copyright protection4PENANAEsFFhqYLYm8Please respect copyright.PENANA1FCJckiaJN

"Well, the worst is happening," said Mino.copyright protection4PENANAExetPXv98p8Please respect copyright.PENANA5aG3Ehk02r

"Don't tell me Collins is here," said Zoey with a horrified look on her face.copyright protection4PENANAdQJUi4u2hq8Please respect copyright.PENANAqlxcyhsbHP

"That's even a better guess," I said. "It's Yang Hyun-suk."copyright protection4PENANAdWSSCaiBWh8Please respect copyright.PENANA2JvEtIYLTI

"You're kidding, right?"copyright protection4PENANAXAOc4EaANi8Please respect copyright.PENANAzYSg2wxmxA

"No," said Mino. "TOP just told us he's here and he's not alone."copyright protection4PENANAZ19IVrNpu58Please respect copyright.PENANANXWlavCCGk

"This isn't good," said Zoey. "What are we going to do?"copyright protection4PENANAPH2IzETSgP8Please respect copyright.PENANAsJ3XnxGmiz

"He shouldn't see The Toxins with WINNER," I said. "That's what we have to do. Come on, let's go before he gets here."copyright protection4PENANA9eqYquCB4q8Please respect copyright.PENANA4SyX8AtGX0

Just as I turned around 8Please respect copyright.PENANAhLYe68JJLq
to head back to the elevator, I saw the elevator monitor show that 8Please respect copyright.PENANA3e97cwESSX
someone or some people were coming up the elevator and had stopped on 8Please respect copyright.PENANArXQZUZzoGw
the the floor we were on.copyright protection4PENANAU4r3NnvBNZ8Please respect copyright.PENANApYincowV7i

"Quick, let's go the other way," I said, quickly turning around and rushing down the hall before the elevator doors could open.copyright protection4PENANAGCGJlgne9E8Please respect copyright.PENANAmbwvjI2YAV

Just as we turned round a8Please respect copyright.PENANAV2TM1NLBcs
corner, near the women's shower room was a door. I quickly opened it. 8Please respect copyright.PENANA8BqqYCOvyW
It was a janitor's closet. I let the other two go in before I did. I 8Please respect copyright.PENANANU7kqq2toD
heard voices coming down the hall from the elevator and I silently 8Please respect copyright.PENANAokFh7H5Tih
closed the door. The room was soon covered in darkness.copyright protection4PENANA4iSuhjZUU48Please respect copyright.PENANAlrSLRRnGmW

"What are we doing in here?" Zoey asked.copyright protection4PENANAkO8MSW9nxX8Please respect copyright.PENANAC9QKuhaxKz

"Ssh, keep your voice down," I whispered.copyright protection4PENANAmeA3XVklat8Please respect copyright.PENANAa9UQr2xwVQ

"Fine," she whispered. "What are we doing in here?"copyright protection4PENANAZfMRJ3aJX58Please respect copyright.PENANANghG29xqPU

"What do you think we're doing? Hiding from Yang Hyun-suk."copyright protection4PENANANiUW4MTe9q8Please respect copyright.PENANAms4dcyun5f

"Are you sure it's him coming out of that elevator?"copyright protection4PENANAbwFMACHUYS8Please respect copyright.PENANAXfoS6PUEmP

I didn't say anything as8Please respect copyright.PENANAu96MQ8VnyL
we all listened quietly and heard voices and footsteps coming down the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAhVdm8pUCNZ
hall. The people bypassed the door and I could clearly hear Yang 8Please respect copyright.PENANASKfgCl6xZs
Hyun-suk's voice.copyright protection4PENANAoX7aPRd0Ab8Please respect copyright.PENANAmuCtgtCcQb

Gosh, I muttered in my head. If I hadn't thought of hiding when I saw the elevator monitor, we would have been in so much trouble.copyright protection4PENANA5ot0lyMeNW8Please respect copyright.PENANAX86bveBpRo

We heard the footsteps and voices start to fade as they went further down the hall.copyright protection4PENANAFZtkL3WtYU8Please respect copyright.PENANAoJ9D0LZ7jZ

"What are we going to do now?" Mino whispered.copyright protection4PENANAlmStxHkLIV8Please respect copyright.PENANAAGtc9JFMVw

"And it's so dark in here," whispered Zoey.copyright protection4PENANAWNjpNEYASL8Please respect copyright.PENANAXTF34aiGAa

I checked around with my8Please respect copyright.PENANA4YUdCUZC2j
hand on the wall for a switch. And when I found it, I flipped it and 8Please respect copyright.PENANABCZ4P8OvUK
the light went on in the tiny room.copyright protection4PENANAwxLZSw3PZ28Please respect copyright.PENANA1SDHVISeos

"Have they left?" Zoey asked.copyright protection4PENANAKloCOWk9H28Please respect copyright.PENANAotriH4dHGf

I put my ear to the door and listened. I could still hear the faint murmuring of voices down the hall.copyright protection4PENANA4DQn3E21eU8Please respect copyright.PENANA0hSZmH7ac2

I shook my head. "They are still there."copyright protection4PENANANLszLk6Oa58Please respect copyright.PENANAUeUyWQgO4F

Mino and Zoey both 8Please respect copyright.PENANAht8ILPNZwt
muttered in frustration. They were so impatient to get out of this tiny 8Please respect copyright.PENANAfwL7w8PDi1
closet which was soon starting to get a bit uncomfortable. One thing I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAGdgALcr20v
don't like is closed spaces, not that I was claustrophobic. Right now, 8Please respect copyright.PENANAHiZQ1LFOKc
we were so squeezed I was afraid I was going to drop in the bucket 8Please respect copyright.PENANAi0J47fcXTv
behind me.copyright protection4PENANAQUrfwgbRpS8Please respect copyright.PENANAYzIeatrCvr

I leaned on the door to hear if they were still in the hall. I couldn't hear anything.copyright protection4PENANAUtwKQzoSBD8Please respect copyright.PENANA8dK73LSIzD

"I think they are gone," I whispered.copyright protection4PENANANppgYaB4ZL8Please respect copyright.PENANAVSDFWLU8IO

"Try and check," Mino whispered.copyright protection4PENANAaPFC5cSh4h8Please respect copyright.PENANADHnmWyPnal

I took hold of the door 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPiyzqClikU
knob and slowly turned it. When it opened, I slowly and carefully swung 8Please respect copyright.PENANAVgNzVJkQS3
the door open so that it wouldn't make any noise. I poked my head out of8Please respect copyright.PENANAEwK2SHAI4L
the room and looked left and right. The hall was clear.copyright protection4PENANAaYLGIBg7uR8Please respect copyright.PENANA4U4DuufPNA

"Come on," I said to the others as I swung the door wide open.copyright protection4PENANALihazfkakj8Please respect copyright.PENANAKJQxiMgDC9

I stepped out of the janitor's room and Mino and Zoey followed. I slowly closed the door.copyright protection4PENANAWv9C7fPZwT8Please respect copyright.PENANAGgGriz8Thd

"It looks like they went towards the men's shower room," said Mino as he looked down the hall.copyright protection4PENANAhGS2nAEDI98Please respect copyright.PENANAFm7JZBeer1

"That gives us enough time to use the elevator and head upstairs," I said.copyright protection4PENANAutrLE11Ybm8Please respect copyright.PENANAObKFI3rZG4

The three of us were 8Please respect copyright.PENANA8nkPODoXwG
quickly running down the hall towards the elevator when Zoey's phone 8Please respect copyright.PENANAab2iV1U9gl
rang in her gym bag. And as if by coincidence, Yang Hyun-suk's voice was8Please respect copyright.PENANAb5wWKeZceG
heard down the hall. They were coming back our way and had probably 8Please respect copyright.PENANAgn3AcReAOK
heard the phone ring.copyright protection4PENANAi8RrKYHAYd8Please respect copyright.PENANAgZWjhRkc0B

"What are we going to do?" Zoey asked as she panicked looking for her phone in her bag.copyright protection4PENANAtgUlihWXUF8Please respect copyright.PENANAxbG37qi7Dw

I quickly took the bag 8Please respect copyright.PENANANTTRu5IIGx
strap from her shoulder and said, "he's heard us now, you two go back 8Please respect copyright.PENANAtXwpgOgB0g
upstairs and get the others out while I distract him for a while. And 8Please respect copyright.PENANAcxsSBAjUIW
you should figure a way to get out of the building before he notices 8Please respect copyright.PENANAqvPkmkq527
anything strange."copyright protection4PENANA6o9yaNzcML8Please respect copyright.PENANADv49UkYbWY

"You want us to leave you here?" Mino asked.copyright protection4PENANAy4TqwEpden8Please respect copyright.PENANAr8wU18vl2d

"Just go, I'll buy you time. And don't use the elevator when you come down, take the stairs."copyright protection4PENANAqIDk4WB0Tw8Please respect copyright.PENANAhtJ7O6rebu

Mino and Zoey quickly 8Please respect copyright.PENANAlO0qYVKW6H
ran for the elevator and got in just in time before Yang Hyun-suk 8Please respect copyright.PENANAVyPrtRzYcC
appeared round the corner with other people behind him. Two men and a 8Please respect copyright.PENANAbu5UBT037c
lady. Zoey's phone was still ringing in her bag and I was looking for 8Please respect copyright.PENANAyt1zT0uEWB
it. When I finally retrieved it, I quickly looked at the caller ID. It 8Please respect copyright.PENANAlSabjD3TBf
was Christine. I cut the line immediately.copyright protection4PENANAG0VPy5C7io8Please respect copyright.PENANAvNKAImuIpC

"I was wondering who was down here," said Yang Hyun-suk as he with his visitors approached me. "Nice to see you, Sam."copyright protection4PENANATRtNhZsGcG8Please respect copyright.PENANAVY5XxZX2ET

I quickly bowed to Yang Hyun-suk and to the visitors.copyright protection4PENANA4DpIYtFAuz8Please respect copyright.PENANAE0MOc5sfZ4

A woman who was with them said, "I see you've grown into the Korean culture pretty quickly. I've to say I'm really impressed."copyright protection4PENANA6az1Z77Cfq8Please respect copyright.PENANAvuRf5zBAi1

I gave them a little 8Please respect copyright.PENANAce0ibxh8AW
smile while the other two men happily agreed. Yang Hyun-suk soon 8Please respect copyright.PENANA2fWO48UwnT
introduced them to me as the Chinese Internationals who had come to see 8Please respect copyright.PENANABTot8u2K4l
the place.copyright protection4PENANA09huWztogG8Please respect copyright.PENANALgALyLjQTU

"I see that you're done practising," said Yang Hyun-suk. "Where are the others?"copyright protection4PENANA5kju3iXISs8Please respect copyright.PENANANW9JKdSFKg

"Yes, they are waiting for me downstairs," I replied.copyright protection4PENANAhZCQ1CY9ed8Please respect copyright.PENANAyl9XOirR2v

"I must say, I watched 8Please respect copyright.PENANAdOMNAlzUcs
your stunning performance you did with BigBang at the Arts Centre a few 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPZpYJ9cBOX
days ago," said the slim looking Chinese man, who wore glasses and a 8Please respect copyright.PENANASnj1k8kM0m
black suit.copyright protection4PENANAzfmRJjqdHH8Please respect copyright.PENANAidb51MqAGD

"Gomawoyo (고마워요) (Thank you)," I said as I bowed my head.copyright protection4PENANATM1dh5vfNo8Please respect copyright.PENANA3vCtumCHXr

"You really do have good manners," said other man.copyright protection4PENANAH5okVpXUyb8Please respect copyright.PENANAEPPYRa6bW6

"Yang Hyun-suk wasn't joking when he said that you're fast learner," said the lady giving me a smile.copyright protection4PENANA88rvZbOqow8Please respect copyright.PENANAyfkKkmwLXd

"I always do my best," I said politely.copyright protection4PENANA7ii9vze1O28Please respect copyright.PENANAo1J1uen7Vk

"I would really have liked it if you and your grou could perform for us," said the man in glasses.copyright protection4PENANAqw7OQ3dNXM8Please respect copyright.PENANAyAany1yFdu

I felt my eyes were 8Please respect copyright.PENANALLK6v4s2Qq
about to fall out of their sockets but I tried my best not to act 8Please respect copyright.PENANAgerZfVeC2a
surprised. All this just got a whole lot worse. What was I going to do 8Please respect copyright.PENANAXBK7Zj9xYm
now? I couldn't call the others to head back to the dance studio. I bet 8Please respect copyright.PENANA2K8MQERjGH
as I'm thinking right now, they are probably heading down the stairs.copyright protection4PENANAZ5UrBUDpk28Please respect copyright.PENANAJWVbWb6bN9

"That will be great," I said with enthusiasm. "I'll just call the others to head back to the......"copyright protection4PENANAVskeBQOQRC8Please respect copyright.PENANAlKK5SJp2ho

Yang Hyun-suk stopped me8Please respect copyright.PENANAoj8x5ZbWjS
before I could say anything more. "No, I bet you guys are tired. 8Please respect copyright.PENANAD3OzeLKkWx
Collins told me you were going back to the old routine, are you not?"copyright protection4PENANASh90604jN18Please respect copyright.PENANAuhienbYNdf

I didn't know where this was going but I was feeling relieved at the moment. "Yes," I replied as I nodded my head.copyright protection4PENANA6N70eIUS8f8Please respect copyright.PENANAbCyk9EklAD

"Since you haven't done so in a while, I bet you're really tired or you would have practised even longer. Maybe next time."copyright protection4PENANAU4Ieij56aX8Please respect copyright.PENANAdeG2NUOxfK

Phew! That was close. He has no idea how he just saved my life from his very own wrath. I was eternally grateful.copyright protection4PENANAJ3fT4lT8EG8Please respect copyright.PENANA5J2oYqAXeO

"Yes, maybe next time," said the man in glasses.copyright protection4PENANA9LuhLJ0GB98Please respect copyright.PENANAdprLKAp5W0

"Well, if you will excuse us, Sam," said Yang Hyun-suk. "We have places to be."copyright protection4PENANAWvdEKwYPD88Please respect copyright.PENANAI9epb2kZAA

I smiled as I bowed my 8Please respect copyright.PENANAKGkN5ieFgs
head and I made way for the manager and his visitors to pass to head to 8Please respect copyright.PENANAttSUfDvFIr
the elevator. I was so relieved after they got in and the doors closed 8Please respect copyright.PENANAFqBUQNXaMx
shut before them. I held my beating heart. I hadn't realised how scared I8Please respect copyright.PENANALxd5liozYE
was until now.copyright protection4PENANAMmc2fgn8o28Please respect copyright.PENANA1s8UmnxS2f

I quickly ran to the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAkIGVDwIAHv
other end of the hall by passing the girl's shower room, turning a 8Please respect copyright.PENANA8s3lxoEVYC
corner and heading to the flight of stairs right after the men's shower 8Please respect copyright.PENANAA04IUr5rk8
room. Just as I was about to descend the stairs, I heard voices and 8Please respect copyright.PENANAHEQnAuUj4B
footsteps above me. I looked up and I saw the people I was expecting to 8Please respect copyright.PENANAPc3SyBhdxf
see.copyright protection4PENANAPyNjQz3QfE8Please respect copyright.PENANAQ7fVP9mVBH

"Sam! You're okay," said Seunghoon as he was the first one to quickly rush down and reach me. He pulled me into a hug.copyright protection4PENANA0c9eQUKPJn8Please respect copyright.PENANA4imUGWpAgt

"I wasn't being a chased by a lion, you know?" I said as I broke away from him. "I'm fine."copyright protection4PENANAXwKaz0qW9P8Please respect copyright.PENANAb5GfXfQesn

"I told you she can handle herself with your manager," said Zoey as she came down the downstairs with the rest.copyright protection4PENANAYYnMidll4B8Please respect copyright.PENANAtjvJelSBgu

"I had no doubt about that in my mind," said Seunghoon.copyright protection4PENANA05N9jE33tN8Please respect copyright.PENANAikMEfsBE3R

"Then why did you hug me?" I asked shrugging my shoulders.copyright protection4PENANArrkbBTc2Ql8Please respect copyright.PENANA8eWPtU5k8y

"Because I missed you."copyright protection4PENANARPkfBDsWZx8Please respect copyright.PENANAICRdl5yeGP

I rolled my eyes and said nothing.copyright protection4PENANAyZCl8V0cZt8Please respect copyright.PENANAIZ9vEpYf41

"Well, we all better get going or else you might just meet them again," said TOP.copyright protection4PENANA0qUlCwfOy58Please respect copyright.PENANA7dg33KY846

We all started to rush down the stairs, as if we were being chased by Yang Hyun-suk himself.copyright protection4PENANAaqUuFw78t68Please respect copyright.PENANAGMJx05Dykk

When we reached the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAn3jxzXWxd1
bottom of the stairs, we were faced with a new problem. We all couldn't 8Please respect copyright.PENANAzlePohAnpE
walk out through the main door because the receptionist was in the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAu6rdErjh0D
lobby.copyright protection4PENANAF15ineenrd8Please respect copyright.PENANABnHVUgTRO7

I was leaning on the wall of the entry way and taking a peak at the receptionist who was working on the computer.copyright protection4PENANAQsELNhh35Q8Please respect copyright.PENANASns7dRoNeO

"I think I've an idea," I8Please respect copyright.PENANAsIVTWzlfRl
said as I turned to the others waiting in the hall. "One group is going8Please respect copyright.PENANATtIAoDRivF
to head out through the main entrance and the other will take the 8Please respect copyright.PENANApn3SugJT4Y
emergency exit door right down at the end of the hall."copyright protection4PENANA8fh3KWAS538Please respect copyright.PENANAIwGDqDcLS3

"How do you know there is an emergency exit door back there?" Mino asked as he pointed down the hall.copyright protection4PENANAZL443rjiOL8Please respect copyright.PENANA6MwPnVteeY

I rolled my eyes. I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAUElXwQegKi
couldn't start explaining that I once used that door to sneak out myself8Please respect copyright.PENANAesPV6gyj1r
due to some serious circumstances. When I mean that, I mean the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAm8eTYBPrQ3
situation that happened with Zoey and the diamond smuggler.copyright protection4PENANAvFdaq1rI4x8Please respect copyright.PENANApKHLHeBWum

"Because I'm smart 8Please respect copyright.PENANAfJP4FVkdem
enough to know that there is one," I answered. "Don't all buildings such8Please respect copyright.PENANAFBvTvtvkUl
as this one supposed to have an emergency exit?"copyright protection4PENANAzdMQhxNRpT8Please respect copyright.PENANAoj564NkGKO

Mino and TOP smiled at 8Please respect copyright.PENANA3ZyS4dNpr2
me, that I couldn't tell if they were impressed that I was smart enough 8Please respect copyright.PENANAL6Dg08KvtE
to guess or that I already knew about the door. I brushed that thought 8Please respect copyright.PENANARSYWY3KiKu
away and tried to focus on the mission of getting out of here.copyright protection4PENANAUoEZtIrN0g8Please respect copyright.PENANA7NtFFySsXk

"We will take the back door," said Seungyoon. "Sam and the others will take the front."copyright protection4PENANAyvVLGmN74R8Please respect copyright.PENANAvJq80rhKXL

"Why do we get the back door?" Mino asked.copyright protection4PENANAEE4rvlZjdo8Please respect copyright.PENANAoODnLBqwUa

"If we don't take the 8Please respect copyright.PENANA01XuHD2A60
front and Yang Hyun-suk asks the receptionist if we left, it's going to 8Please respect copyright.PENANAUBJlJJM1tK
raise suspicion," I said. "He knows The Toxins are here and not WINNER."copyright protection4PENANAc7NQ7gyy4z8Please respect copyright.PENANANSyqfk2GQX

"Well, you do make a good point," said Seunghoon.copyright protection4PENANAOC5JoL5bSa8Please respect copyright.PENANARRYOmGsogy

"She always does," said Christine and Daniel at the same time.copyright protection4PENANA2xO7YjtXCG8Please respect copyright.PENANApa98vTRiUl

"You guys go right now 8Please respect copyright.PENANA2IdB9tVb9M
and then we will come soon afterwards and meet you outside the gate," I 8Please respect copyright.PENANA91D8PZOho4
said. "TOP, you're coming with me and the Toxins."copyright protection4PENANAmPOaGVqeuv8Please respect copyright.PENANAQNeZVJSN1N

"May I know why?" he asked with an eyebrow raised.copyright protection4PENANANi7S2wE8Hw8Please respect copyright.PENANA84vlFEPAQZ

"Because I need you around."copyright protection4PENANAjK47S3rl148Please respect copyright.PENANAmZ0Z7QZV8o

He smiled and I turned away before he could say anything more.copyright protection4PENANA2nURxANYOh8Please respect copyright.PENANA0YbeX7YQU0

Seungyoon and his group 8Please respect copyright.PENANAD348pJNejE
started their way down the hall and went out through the exit door. I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAdGDeGL4GHc
checked Zoey's phone which I still had in my hand and decided to wait 8Please respect copyright.PENANA4HafW8nUYi
for ten minutes.copyright protection4PENANAtCABvD7aLP8Please respect copyright.PENANAUBlZKKIyZ2

"How long do we have to stay here?" Mike asked.copyright protection4PENANAH4zLcsOEOQ8Please respect copyright.PENANAccIQqpCv5j

"A good ten minutes," I said as I checked the time on the phone again.copyright protection4PENANAIQdCILdvK28Please respect copyright.PENANAH91SpX1MRZ

"These ten minutes will feel like forever," said Zoey with an annoying look on her face.copyright protection4PENANAMeFnQa0YlL8Please respect copyright.PENANA4MBqLmauV9

"That is why patience pays," said Christine.copyright protection4PENANAN2QnN2PCHD8Please respect copyright.PENANAw8mfYNFAiK

"So if you guys are 8Please respect copyright.PENANAU0UVTjSU6K
going to hang out with WINNER, how are you going to do that without 8Please respect copyright.PENANAUbxwBjTLNO
drawing attention to yourselves?" TOP asked.copyright protection4PENANAsqtG3csgHd8Please respect copyright.PENANAVkWhAV5fvo

"Why do you ask?" I asked.copyright protection4PENANAiusXRi8Sgt8Please respect copyright.PENANA0qoVlifedl

"You guys can't just 8Please respect copyright.PENANAY7wwE7PxTC
walk around the streets and expect no one to notice that WINNER and The 8Please respect copyright.PENANAlOXi6xdcNJ
Toxins are hanging out. Your fans will take pictures and that way, our 8Please respect copyright.PENANAAO9ZJvhYKu
managers will find out what's going on."copyright protection4PENANAE3vuqjxfWe8Please respect copyright.PENANAkJCRfgY4NS

I smiled and checked the time again. It was close to five minutes. I looked up at TOP.copyright protection4PENANATpEn5IzyYg8Please respect copyright.PENANAH9HErOcF00

"I'm not going to hide to the whole world that we are hanging out with WINNER," I answered.copyright protection4PENANAMgLedDwlvN8Please respect copyright.PENANApAOyzy4RxO

"Huh?" TOP and the rest of my team turned to look at me with confused looks on their faces.copyright protection4PENANAO9QkEhDcxA8Please respect copyright.PENANAlRxYIMeHR2

"What the heck do you mean?" Mike asked. "We're going to get into so much trouble."copyright protection4PENANAqqZ5N5NnDL8Please respect copyright.PENANAAybhdD5qj5

"I know," I looked at the time. "Let's go. And act natural."copyright protection4PENANADp2pDf2aBy8Please respect copyright.PENANAqIGfhfNl6l

"Wait...Sam," TOP called out to me, but I had already turned around the corner, walking into the lobby.copyright protection4PENANAXqHOKm5oyD8Please respect copyright.PENANAasdIrWvFDm

The others quickly 8Please respect copyright.PENANAIeVUv8yByR
followed behind me and their way of acting natural was so surreal, as 8Please respect copyright.PENANAGZzmeQC2cJ
they entered the lobby laughing as if someone had just cracked a joke. 8Please respect copyright.PENANAnmcB4Dxzjb
That caught the receptionist's attention that I had to look behind me 8Please respect copyright.PENANAW1pRVU0tvz
worried that they might have hit their heads.copyright protection4PENANAYZ4X4R2SeG8Please respect copyright.PENANAlczUzNLcQX

"Are you all okay?" I asked as I stopped and looked at them.copyright protection4PENANAES6HiJWkUy8Please respect copyright.PENANAVdk8PpLmZ5

"Of course we are," said Zoey a little too loud, it was annoying. "Mike just cracked a funny joke."copyright protection4PENANASRYAGIWL7u8Please respect copyright.PENANAxV6WN2ROwm

"I cracked a funny joke?" Mike whispered, looking pretty confused.copyright protection4PENANAp6tt4yl6rA8Please respect copyright.PENANAnSzWM8KxkA

"Zoey doesn't even consider you funny," said Daniel as he smiled.copyright protection4PENANAN6tTNLDK5x8Please respect copyright.PENANAvgOPoDfaZe

"Now that's funny," said Christine as she also smiled.copyright protection4PENANAiYpgy5ZvR78Please respect copyright.PENANAfx9mtXokLV

"Not to me," I said as I rolled my eyes. "Can we just go?"copyright protection4PENANAZgdtKh25ot8Please respect copyright.PENANAH8Nh5ApP8K

As soon as I turned 8Please respect copyright.PENANAqE0fupSJzS
around to continue heading out the main doors, the elevator doors to the8Please respect copyright.PENANAXOp7aT4zeP
the side of the lobby soon flew open and for a moment, I paused as I 8Please respect copyright.PENANAuWYid3TCT1
thought it was Yang Hyun-suk with his Chinese visitors. Even the others 8Please respect copyright.PENANAnkFnz9MsSl
behind me paused ready for the worst.copyright protection4PENANAFbA85nTJ8Z8Please respect copyright.PENANAkQaKXkE1TS

When the people in the elevator stepped out, the world before me stood still and I felt like dropping to the floor.copyright protection4PENANAgqXGHwMH1D8Please respect copyright.PENANARoOPG1TzEN

My brother Mike who stood beside me had his mouth wide open and said, "OMG, it's them."copyright protection4PENANAO1U1vEjxKH8Please respect copyright.PENANAB17gpGqc8j

"Well, this day just got8Please respect copyright.PENANAxt9He72S9V
a whole lot worse," said TOP and he didn't sound too enthusiastic about8Please respect copyright.PENANAL0jzQZBJzf
it. I couldn't blame him for that.copyright protection4PENANA1qTBzZZsI78Please respect copyright.PENANAwahErGkRTt

Coming out of the 8Please respect copyright.PENANAaqXj8bqa4z
elevator was none other than YG's own female k-pop group, Black Pink. 8Please respect copyright.PENANA6PAppqp09Z
And when they saw us standing there like statues, they also stopped on 8Please respect copyright.PENANAgG9ykBeFs8
their tracks and they were also as surprised as we were.copyright protection4PENANAsZyqFfWrWY8Please respect copyright.PENANA9Cy7WHjnSn

I felt like I had stood 8Please respect copyright.PENANAXZcxoCXOC7
still forever that my feet hurt. Zoey who stood on my other side, nudged8Please respect copyright.PENANANTOXr8yGO1
me on the shoulder to get my attention.copyright protection4PENANA5K0ZMvE62o8Please respect copyright.PENANAOYEn5A5oYX

"Sam? Is it me or did our day just get a whole lot complicated?" she asked, her eyes fixed on Black Pink.copyright protection4PENANAN4OHFnHFQp8Please respect copyright.PENANALVWYslAqad

I gulped and nodded my head. "Yep," I replied.copyright protection4PENANAMjpkJ5AGxw8Please respect copyright.PENANAxY6lWyuvei
8Please respect copyright.PENANAw2gaqmLvKJ

8Please respect copyright.PENANAtwEqv7M6xW
