The fact that we had excitedly emerged victorious yesterday with making BTW official couldn't get out of my mind. I couldn't get over the feeling and I know I wasn't the only one.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBG5hiZcZkh
Yesterday after our meeting, us The Toxins, BlackPink and WINNER decided to have our own private party. We all couldn't be in one place because of the condition our managers gave us not to meet too often. We weren't going to put BTW on the line and risk all that we struggled to keep alive. So, the only way we could celebrate together was through webcam using Skype.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR3QtmUB40M
Ya, you heard me. Skype. As much as it sounds silly, it was the only thing I could think of and at the end of it all, everything worked out pretty well. I used my laptop, which I realise, I haven't used in a while and connected with WINNER and BlackPink at their respective dorms also through their laptops.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1QMvV5kFln
Our celebration was silly if you ask me. There wasn't any food or drinks we could all drink together and celebrate. But we did dance to pop songs and act all goofy because we were so happy that BTW will be made official.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2W48dm8pmt
Not only did we celebrate, we also had a chat about a lot of things. Not about how BTW will be become a huge hit when its finally official. We also got to know each other a little better and it was fun having this kind of interaction even if it was over the net.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHewyIStkXt
As much as I am happy about our victory, I still couldn't get off what happened with G-Dragon yesterday that it still hurt. We haven't tried to talk to each other since. I hadn't tried to call him and he hadn't even tried either. I think it was better this way because I needed to get my mind off things and focus on the future with BTW.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6ZjTufYOVj
And also, I had to focus on the cards I had in my hands right now. I only had three cards left. I looked across from where I sat on the floor and I could see Daniel had three cards in his hands too.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcXgg5tDdT0
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGBed9W6Cg3
I looked at the set of cards in my hand. I had a queen, a nine and a three. Zoey's really lucky, and so am I.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6n2qgxFemA
"Here," I gave Zoey the card and she happily took it from my hand. From the set of cards in her hands, she drew out another three and threw the two cards in the centre of the circle.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyyyOPEisSc
"Finally," said Zoey. "I've gone fishing too many times and I don't know if I can handle all these cards in my hands."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡszNHMWDTzU
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWFhZ5xxLMT
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmlsUahysKq
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEdZrUMoyFX
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtCDLCJj9u5
"Dang it!" I muttered as I stretched out my hand to the deck of cards, called the pool, that were overturned so that you wouldn't see the card you picked. This time I picked an ace of eights. How agonising!
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2QrvLBMk3x
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLILL9Fxxed
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvIQ8tsRMBm
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡREci9XUWiX
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu3FfOPVmna
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzSSq1lSS7u
"Are you sure?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeZ9rijpcgH
"You think I'm lying?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9KKPZyEVU1
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5uUXUViNNp
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi2pstHLTT2
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA3MkTMTxHO
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzNjuKdp21d
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡskgSMKzyDt
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAdxmyq9sYR
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgyEz2oNrrP
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFU9VMVFmtj
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP3wmq5MzxK
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrOi5nltbNV
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0sPaoB64XA
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnNDU940WEx
Daniel stretched his hand to the pool to pick a card. When he looked at it, he smiled as he withdrew another card from his hands and threw the two cards in the centre. They were both twos. The rest of us gasped.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG5mZaJlEV8
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzWBo6Z0c4Y
When it comes to Go Fish, Daniel was always considered the lucky one when it came to picking out cards from the pool. It's because of that that he's usually the first one to have all his cards laid down. When he doesn't get the card he's asking for, he somehow manages to pick the right card at just the right moment from the pool.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMsMqnVvnR9
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVyfhyp1T4W
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2DSD2ZD3cH
"That's not true and you know it," said Christine. "How many times have we all shuffled the cards and still Daniel wins by laying down all his cards first?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2Z9OqwKVUC
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5Pbk6JK7DP
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3FsWjvWWz8
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDB8Nqykaue
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMz3XUaHFhl
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡul1Xhkteg2
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmUEvI532fy
"I know," Mike smirked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh27l02vIHM
"Sam, do you have a....?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4c75apqDDH
Zoey was interrupted by the hotel landline ringing. We all fell silent as the five of us looked at each other wondering who was going to pick it up.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG0BkvkpznF
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7EIfZIhurZ
"Looks like no one is going to do it, so I will," said Christine as she got up from the floor, leaving the cards she had overturned on the floor and went to pick up the phone.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhvcoAmO0Zr
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHFsj0YEqx1
I turned to look at Christine and I saw her looking back at me. Who was here to see us that she looked so nervous? Could it be G-Dragon?
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6FFOUFwc9X
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcqtoP3LD4K
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5Mqx6rvKS3
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLYIrMD7jQh
"Ummm, it's G-Dragon," said Christine as she looked at us and her eyes fell on me last. "I hope it's okay that I let him in."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh2IKrxOcbS
"Well, it's fine if he has come here to apologise," said Daniel. "But I ain't mad at him for what he did yesterday."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXgEoNLPjvI
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmhG5JtIQNz
"Why me?" I asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ74BPP3nDfy
"Well, it's pretty obvious you're still mad at him unlike the rest of us and that you don't want to see him."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwdObBCWrWs
I got up from the floor and dropped the cards I was holding. "I am mad, yes. And, I'm in no mood for his apology. If you need me, I'll be in my room."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9jKQotk7k7
"You know, you aren't being fair," said Christine. "Why can't you hear him out first? I bet for him to come here he is sorry for what he did."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGscih1lFFB
"Christine's right," said Zoey as she also got up from the floor. "He hurt you and us too. But you already know that if it wasn't for what he did, there would be no BTW. And the most important thing is that you two are friends. Knowing you, you don't like to hate anyone forever. We all know why he did that in the first place."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdbO2npFjRB
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL1UwRjZbqk
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi6Muo4wKJb
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlWn9ZKzF4q
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgQsbmjvmvV
"No, I do...." Daniel paused as his eyes looked like they would pop out of his sockets any moment now. "Ooooh. I get it now."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGO2sjrwQbf
I shook my head at my brothers and before I could think of what to say next, we heard the sound of the elevator doors open. He was here. Dang it! I didn't want to be in the lounge when he got here. What was I going to do now?
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1wcpGb9fQe
I heard footsteps from the hall and I knew he was coming. He soon appeared at the entrance of the lounge and I paused at the sight of him. My heart even skipped a beat.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG748jqsOMY
G-Dragon was staring right back at me and this time he had a sad smile on his face unlike the silly cute ones he would give me most of the time. I noticed the bags under his eyes and I could tell he hadn't slept well last night. Apparently, I hadn't either.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKsMMU6drWp
"Ah! GD, you're here!" Zoey said excitedly as she went over to him and gave him a brief hug. I guess after all that had happened between the two of them, Zoey still showed some affection towards him. She's always admired him after all.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGYWSnC4xSV
"Looks like you're not mad at me," said G-Dragon as he put up a bright smile for Zoey. I turned away when I felt a sharp piercing inside.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLz3PIngbb2
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9VvWHq3VRZ
"Same here," said Christine as she went over to hug G-Dragon as well. "Are you okay? You look like you haven't slept at all."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlxYhqlUvTM
"Of course he hasn't," said Mike as he and Daniel got up from the floor. "I can tell it's because you're worried that Sam might stay mad at you forever."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrFmvv5SLg3
I wanted to fire back at my brother but I kept my mouth shut instead when everyone turned to look at me. I felt like I had been put in an awkward position right now and all I felt like running out of the lounge.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOqZjmHJpCA
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpX8nfzJ95D
"No," I said just as the other Toxins were about to turn around and leave. "G-Dragon and I already talked yesterday. There is no need for us to talk and I am surly not in a mood to hear a thing he has to say."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWwij1NoTzE
Zoey's jaw dropped as she looked at me. "You're so harsh, Sam. To be honest, I've never heard you say anything like this."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXn4WHrDqQg
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1geaDtKnDP
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0zliSn6hgF
"No, I have nothing to say," G-Dragon replied. "Sam's right. We have nothing to talk about. And just like she isn't in a mood to hear what I've to say, I didn't come here to see her."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWe20aJsNaj
I was stunned. And so were the rest of The Toxins. I tried not to show my reaction as I folded my arms and pursed my lips tightly together. Because I felt like screaming out loud with rage.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3czhndL7Ao
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWAYiSRFY8W
"I wanted to apologise to you guys with what happened yesterday," said G-Dragon. "I didn't get to do so when I had the chance, so, I'm sorry."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE4aG5lqx8B
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRcOqubDgje
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEgODyHueGD
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbkHm1NHslQ
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3c2SDx4hNn
I almost dropped to the floor as I felt the world spin below my feet. Did he just say BigBang's dorm? The dorm where the five lived under one roof throughout their music career. Oh, gosh! I felt like screaming to the heavens with excitement.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvsDj5c0zqH
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcB1UX2IEu3
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvyfxqT5uaS
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSFkwZqI0Z8
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHcKI6IKOnf
G-Dragon smiled. And I could recognise it from a mile away. He was doing all of this just to get to me. If he thought he was going to move me, I wasn't shaken at all. Well, at least that's what I told myself.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSSN8qe1vJb
"I can't believe we to get to go to your dorm," said Mike with an unbelievable smile on his face. "Okay, I can't help it. I'm excited too."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoBRJ7Q9PQ8
"Me too," said Daniel. "Wait, hold up. Should we tell Collins that we will be going to your dorm so that we wouldn't get in trouble?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYxkIfrr0gO
"Daa! Of course," said Zoey. "I wouldn't like to get in trouble ever again. Especially now that we have two managers instead of one."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf8G3g6hiC1
I smirked in the inside. Even if they were to ask Collins, they wouldn't get to go. As far as the managers' instructions were concerned, we were told to keep a low profile at the moment. If the universe was on my side, the managers weren't going to agree at all.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt0ClJJbSz1
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1yymhONIP4
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw5dd8ukqMX
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrgX4BHOMAn
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOBWnXdbLV0
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQs53Fex0Ej
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX6zVabCZYc
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnMOj9Mwkxr
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlnTqqzFYAk
It was now the two of us. All alone in the empty, quiet lounge. This felt ridiculous. Especially when I imagined a tumbleweed roll right between us in the room.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhyqRtB36A1
I wasn't looking at G-Dragon the whole time the quiet moments passed. I could feel his eyes on me and my eyes were on the floor looking at the cards scattered everywhere. Our game of Go Fish had been completely interrupted and forgotten about all because of him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjXN7gWTNhr
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeCO83fIIdj
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3vRunk5qqG
"May I ask why?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrJEfRVbKIt
I looked up at him. "You know why."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbX6069gPSt
I went down to kneel on the floor and started to gather all the cards together. I saw G-Dragon approach through the corner of my eye and I pretended not to notice.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8VZZqnkvNL
"It's a pity that you aren't coming," said G-Dragon as he now stood a foot away from me. "We were going to have so much fun together."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcfvRumMG7v
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡajtgjApzpi
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3xe3xEqRae
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDnt8eYu1FC
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxPV05eAvO0
"Ya, it didn't."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOSx3W5HmXS
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBAf5Iu3dvJ
"Mmmm." I stared up at the ceiling as I bit my lip pretending to be deep in thought. "I don't know. But you'll figure it out someday."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP3yK4EZE9O
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFYGd1DiJ0f
I almost dropped the cards I was holding in my hands and my cheeks blushed all of the sudden. I cleared my throat as I tucked a strand of my hair behind my ear. I looked at G-Dragon who had a playful smirk on his face and that almost made me blush even more. But I stood my ground and told myself that I was not shaken by his soothing charm.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBBQRGylKLR
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtAU1lYFkDP
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8iNPvOsOys
"You don't seem to be surprised at all with what I said. The Sam I know would have her cheeks blushing throughout. But this time, you didn't even last for seconds."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ494U1Ksmue
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeXP8Za7FvK
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvE3itz7WnF
Just as I was about to take my leave, G-Dragon came to stand in front of me, blocking my way. I almost bumped into him as we stood so close facing each other.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡprPtlQeOdJ
"I still think I have an effect on you, my dear kitty," G-Dragon said softly as his eyes bore into mine. "If anything, I think I got you when I told the others that I was taking them to see BigBang's dorm."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3rHSAG3Hmy
"Ha!" I almost laughed out loud, rolling my eyes. "As much as I am a fan, trust me, I don't need you to invite me over just to see your dorm."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsRcwaG5hCt
G-Dragon nodded his head and smiled. "Of course, the rest of my group members will do so when you ask them to. Since they are likely to obey to your every command."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX2UNwgDK5R
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt8ib0TR3Ae
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC35PzfvFx8
"I don't give orders, GD."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8ua3hHkVrp
"You've no idea how you sometimes play the role of a queen, Sam." G-Dragon leaned closer and his musky cologne almost drew me in. "You might not know it, but you're one."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMVx56yYYBz
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡceCh3cxzS4
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH1yS4QzoL1
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNyXlD3TB2v
I smirked. "One thing is for sure, I can't stay mad at people forever. Most especially you. I won't lie that I am still upset with what you did yesterday. But that doesn't mean you don't deserve another chance."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbeJOwN03mT
"So, you forgive me?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ74UGWYwwni
I smiled this time around. "Yes. And that's only because I can't stand that you have to struggle to make me fall for your little charms and schemes just for me to forgive you." I didn't mean it anyway.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡybQvwuyp5A
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVhPE5lr5pO
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZwSTcPSJlf
G-Dragon had a surprised look on his face and I felt like kissing him on the cheek for the fun of it. But instead, I gave him a wink and walked past him. Just as I was about to leave the lounge, Zoey and Christine suddenly appeared from the passage way, blocking my way.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1TqSpWmXms
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyhJoWOKoU9
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcTG5NTUFCg
Zoey wore a white body top which has the words written "Queen" in gold and matching blue tight denim jeans. She looked at herself when I complimented her.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUEakwzhSxE
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk6W4uSSehN
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡouH4zuYt9A
"Ya, but I always look good that you don't have to say it. You're going with us whether you like it or not."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ3eUoLtGD0
"But I don't feel like going."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlY6h3BaWPs
"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJeWqjvUhZ3
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSJ77DvS6cw
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7xvdPyP0vF
"Zoey's right," said G-Dragon behind me. "The rest of BigBang are all expecting you to be there. And you know that they won't like it if you don't come."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡseToEdUzuT
I sighed. G-Dragon did have a point. And I'm afraid if I didn't refuse, these two crazy girls were going to drag me out of here in the worst and also embarrassing way possible.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDnCKufgnms
"Do you want me to call Collins?" Christine asked when I didn't say anything. "You know that if you don't go, we can't either. Remember what happened when we left without you to Caribbean Bay?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUt0qHQZwRu
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbjI5IniDXN
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwAa8lFoB3L
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4Ye5oWVotM
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSF6BKPZ3sW
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQYx17SHwtK
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhyJwD7tzwW
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmoCt0niZqK
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWhJtjRl0nP
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLFouc1CFB8
G-Dragon only smiled and didn't say a word. I furrowed my eyebrows at him. Looks like he won this round with the help of Zoey and Christine. Next time, he was going to beg for mercy.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCYxfrxCJw2
I went to the room to get myself ready and within minutes I found myself in the lounge where everyone else was waiting for me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡutkeWD5iDt
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8p9wUlyw1a
"Yes," said Daniel as he got up from his seat. "I thought the others were kidding when they said you were coming along with us."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFD8cSzKujh
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxOKS2Hv8Z9
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB8yKFt6e07
I quickly turned around and found myself in the hall heading to the elevator. I heard muttering and whispering behind me as the others followed me down the hall. I pressed the elevator button to summon the lift.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoFLxSD7C8r
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTGfEyil4ql
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd2tMN9fTnf
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1MVMjNprqy
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSjf8YNqjSR
While the elevator continued to move, I was looking up at the elevator monitor when G-Dragon who stood behind me leaned in close to whisper in my ear.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE5U8RIi7CF
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmDshpM5Pdv
If I had worn pointed high heels with this black summer dress, I would have stepped on G-Dragon's foot so that I could shut him up. I pretended not to have heard him and I sighed in relief when the doors flew open and we all came out of the elevator.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo5PDeNrF6j
When we all stepped out of the lobby through the hotel doors, we found a group of paparazzi waiting for us. Immediately they saw us, they had us surrounded. Luckily, the hotel security came along to ward them off until we got to the cars waiting for us. I for one went in the SUV with my two brothers while Zoey and Christine went in G-Dragon's fancy white lamborgini. I wasn't surprised. Right now, it felt like G-Dragon and I were at war and some people had to pick a side. It was obvious the girls were with G-Dragon and as for my brothers, were obviously on mine because of the special bond we share.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwLorTg9bnM
G-Dragon's car lead the way out of the hotel premises and the SUV followed behind it. While the cars drove down the streets of Seoul, I felt my phone beep in my hand and when I looked at it, I noticed a message from Zoey. When I read it, I sucked my teeth.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRKpj2O57Ej
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC2prFDe7il
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqP6Ph06qcu
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd4eCogruo5
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN07csNPGU8
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2kX8ae9gFm
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKSqZvOgWiE
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ15F8h7W7OQ
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfQbdZls8C8
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡum0VmvJCr1
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgt7VCp3yxR
"I hate that I've to be around you guys all the time. You can take care of yourselves but Collins doesn't want the Caribbean Bay incident to happen again."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoNHA0HVsQx
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBkUBgg7ZTz
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ19385Fy8d5
"What did she send you?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZCSHcTp8mf
"She's just telling me that I should have been in G-Dragon's car because right now they are having fun. I know she's trying to make me envious but it's not working."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGXAByQRGPK
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgRUjZ0Yy8c
"I won't lie, I was. I didn't want to go so that I could show him I am seriously mad. He did do this just for me to forgive him. But it's going to take a whole lot than that."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD8OvQ1ofaK
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuQH4rgUjXK
"It's not really working out though. Looks like he's still getting his way for me to get close. Close enough for me to forgive him."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4dBZwBZv97
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHMgwi7yHmI
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsRzaW1rQlp
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBpCco9OoFX
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwnKMT3TsLg
A few minutes later, G-Dragon's car turned round a corner and packed in front of an apartment building. The car I was in packed behind G-Dragon's car. My brothers and I got out of the car. G-Dragon, Zoey and Christine were already out of the vehicle they were in.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbd7Ko3MQU7
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfvxRIW1wkG
"Yes, it is, my little kitty," said G-Dragon he came to stand next me as he also looked at the building. I took a side step away from him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuQ3fDXixp3
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNBhUmGY8wS
"You can go and we'll catch up."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgMoND7JFE4
Zoey started to walk up to the entrance of the building when she finally turned back and this time, she looked really angry as she stared at GD.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl9UpoymH5M
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLSn3NJJMSg
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE823VGbFlP
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKHYE6ndt4i
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgPbESYoCKg
We followed G-Dragon up the small stone steps of the building and we found ourselves in the apartment lobby room. I had to admit, it's a pretty lobby with a smooth shiny black marble floor and the decor in the seating area was exquisite. I noticed a lovely glass chandelier hanging in the middle of the room.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTpoVtkBE0X
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuKFtpMQCfV
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVwL6aE5ygP
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP9fd5IyHny
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡERjkkI6blm
"I don't," said Zoey and I quickly nudged her roughly on her side so that she could keep quiet. He howled in pain, silently.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6gSRm3vrCM
We headed towards the elevator and got in. G-Dragon pressed the button leading to the floor of his apartment. When we got to the floor, we came out of the elevator and turned down the hall with G-Dragon leading the way.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhrWxF1gdID
We got to the end of the hall and G-Dragon stopped in front of the wooden door to the apartment. He knocked on the door and in a few seconds, the door flew open.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMnv6HQOO1a
The person who opened the door was Seungri. And by the looks of things, it looked like he had come straight out of bed in his light blue sleeping robe which had pandas on it and his eyes looking all sleepy. But I had to admit, he looked cute with his short hair all messed up.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa8q20N6wfI
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡix9f4Ogk2Z
"It's us Seungri," I said.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYPntV4jKSl
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU3uk6u7c1n
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUjU4yYTPiV
"It can clearly show," said G-Dragon. Sounded like he was losing his temper. "I told you not to stay up so late but instead you went out for some party."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOgLbKGg4q9
"You went out?" Zoey asked putting her hands on her hips as if she were an angry parent. "Why didn't you invite us? Better yet me."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqkcUFipNvq
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaqJ4ui2n8l
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjXC48mKprb
"Whatever. Now that you're here, welcome to our dorm!" said Seungri as he came forward and took me by the hand, dragging me inside the apartment.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzRvLLa4aXz
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA80kcuDfSL
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAbIdgRA0h1
The living room had an exquisite and most expensive furniture with its fine white leather sofas, but it again looked more like a gaming room on my part because of the five colourful bean bag chairs all in awkward places in the middle of the living room.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcQSICESGPQ
There was even a large flat plasma screen TV facing the living room and I noticed game controllers on the floor and a game console. That made me raise an eyebrow for a moment. Don't tell me they were gamers or else I was going to faint.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgpZhKbLoqD
"Oh my gosh, this place is totally tight," said Mike as he and Daniel ran in towards the living room and got the game controllers.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa1PTe5KP62
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQiSJ0unTbc
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKsCJJnVvLm
"This is so cool," said Daniel as he sat on a bean bag and looked at the games on the floor. "Sam, can we start to stay here for a little while till we go back home?" Daniel looked at me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9WnZPC4Arb
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCiuv2v0ppc
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCaEfUoCPUo
I turned to look behind me and noticed Taeyang coming from the small kitchen area in an apron. He gave us that eye smile of his and I smiled back.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡc3kz29c7KE
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡimXNRZiSpI
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ41SJgM7TC1
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhO5Bo7LAfv
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfySclKcECB
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmGCfqT1xMD
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz4sFGQMrr2
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXHAPUVA6Ac
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHWTkbjedR1
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRr5j6LaTdB
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVajv0drBj1
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN1YHma1AoS
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCfkHzqsJjF
"No," said G-Dragon as he held my other free hand and stopped me from going with Seungri, pulling me back to him. "You go change. I'll take Sam and the other girls around."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlfQELRRcsb
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡegddXznZaL
"I don't trust you, Seungri." G-Dragon pulled me towards him. "You're obviously going to take her to your room and have her all to yourself."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRM1cuBCWkW
I blushed when G-Dragon said that. There were many ways to describe what he meant and now wasn't the time to figure out what. I seriously didn't like the position I was in at the moment. I felt like a rag doll who is being fought over by two annoying kids.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCGctlXkd9N
"I am loving this drama," said Zoey, as she giggled. "Looks like someone doesn't like the idea of you being alone with someone else, Sam."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoo3BB1bY0m
"I get it Zoey, thank you very much," I said. I turned to look at G-Dragon and then at Seungri. "And you two better let go of my hands or I'll scratch your eyes out. I mean it."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKS8M4CnGzI
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDcoPFJM0WW
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNlkQXWR8UR
At first, G-Dragon and Seungri hesitated as they looked at each other. I gave them a warning look that I was serious with my threat but they didn't seem to budge.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuFJDrNgPuP
"Come on, guys, you're both acting childish," said Taeyang. "You know that's no way to treat a lady. And it's Sam for that matter."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx72WXHFJHC
G-Dragon sighed as he slowly let go of my hand first, then Seungri. I felt relieved and I took a few steps away from them to stand beside Taeyang and the girls.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGvY1lVXc4S
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4zxNdZBtP5
"Well, I would have loved to see your pretty little claws," said Seungri with a beaming smile on his face. I stuck out a tongue at him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjmdlia3YUK
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBAfzCBuzOz
"They will both show you around," said Taeyang pointing at both Seungri and G-Dragon. "That won't be a problem, right?" He looked at the two.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrS8ZGlYiPN
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn8aButMxrH
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi2hyBU96tX
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGUQOTxaSPZ
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGd8ROCkB9L
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡisOA0qu9xX
I was super grateful that I could save myself from Seungri and G-Dragon by keeping myself busy. I gladly smirked at them before I turned around to the small kitchen area with Taeyang. I didn't want to get caught in any kind of drama like the one we had seconds ago. And besides, I didn't even want to be near G-Dragon at all.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7dRY2LvcEk
"Well, that was something," said Taeyang as soon as the others had gone down the hall and my two brothers were now caught up playing a game in the living room.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡckxkbmXwX7
"Tell me about it," I said as I walked over to the stove and bent down to see what was cooking in the oven. "Wow, are you making a quiche?" I stared at Taeyang with amazement. "I never knew you would be this good at cooking."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhfz6PzwjJ3
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgRg8PiUlvy
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFHTd25z0Bw
"Then you better put this on," said Taeyang as he went to get a red and white checkered apron hang on the wall next to the refrigerator and gave it to me. "I don't want you messing up that pretty dress of yours."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7TMHZBhwU1
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzbSQkI9e4F
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNJnGXqMwqn
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3ygQfgrxMm
"No, you're not. You can start by getting eggs in the fridge. You can make an egg omelette or anything you seem appropriate. I'm almost done with everything. Then we can make lasagna afterwards."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡymyrdSan7e
"On it," I said as I went over to open the refrigerator to get the eggs. I noticed a bowl of strawberries and I managed to put one in my mouth and got the tray of eggs.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2VYpBVPnsg
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLwO2m4iOB5
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa9sJBGCL3K
I helped prepare the omelettes and Taeyang's quiche was ready. He had prepared other food stuffs as well, like sandwiches, croissant, bacon, fresh toast and pancakes.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ6FXvhSlEl
I was done with the omelettes and decided to help Taeyang out making the lasagna. While we did that, we had a fun chat. I asked him about how Hyo-rin was doing and he asked me about the little drama we had yesterday with G-Dragon, the managers and BTW. I explained everything to him though it felt like a painful process, especially on the part where G-Dragon was willing to get us in trouble with our managers.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCqRrsevL27
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQdhjWSZzD2
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjC8YzEfs0U
"All except you of course."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡODkF4NTzyW
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHo9YH6QHGt
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJZ6SYGxe9x
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9XauCfhwPP
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtweCuWJlDp
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPnpWfoCMCL
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkMIvglKxSA
"Why do you say that?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnl6BYBxHXa
"Because, right after he came back from YG, I had never seen him look like that before. Looks like he was about to lose something that mattered to him the most."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7MyxINVlAy
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6VkPqAbb83
"True. But person wise, he cares about you a lot. And that might just make him a better person than he is. It's best he tastes love the hard way. And what better way than not forgiving him anytime sooner over what he did?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMvoS6nuE4r
Taeyang gave me a small smile as he turned away and approached the counter in the middle of the kitchen. I didn't say a word as I thought of what he said. I quickly brushed it off afterwards as I put the lasagna in the oven.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPcenJWbEiL
A few minutes later just as I was taking the lasagna out of the stove with oven mittens, I felt someone standing right behind me. For a moment I thought it was Taeyang because I had left him arranging the food by the counter. I turned around with the hot pan the lasagna and I soon realised who had been standing behind me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcoHxe78pjg
It was TOP. And he moved away just in time before I could burn him with the pan.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt5MSYTfsxj
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUnw8Kf5VUn
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH7MoE1wMqQ
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3UWPMUI1ng
"Now you can hug me," I said as I stretched out my arms wide still wearing oven mittens and TOP took a step forward to hug me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡliDSqn7wj1
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT18GqNHXz7
"I also love to cook," I said with a smile. "And it's been a while since I have been in the kitchen so I took the opportunity."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNC2JsOEaQ2
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqck44LrbhL
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdbNmRd9yaJ
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGYlIIOxmYo
"I was expecting him to."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡppAKtFwVRO
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH4ZurRHApS
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj6QFPytmVs
Taeyang, TOP and I turned towards the living room area and there was Daesung who sat in between Mike and Daniel, facing the TV and tapping uncontrollably on the game controllers. They were all fixed on the screen and I couldn't help but shake my head at them. Boys.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKlRl6l0CgR
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqXWpsngaXG
"Arrgh, no fair," said Mike as he slapped his hands in annoyance and at the same time, dropping the game controller to the floor. "I almost had you. Almost."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2hMTXBsqYo
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSJJK5P55rm
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXSkTiMhzWf
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfZw2StEkUC
"Don't think I forgot about you, Sam," said Daesung as he got from where he sat and came to hug me. "How are you?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡINmsxrhDxJ
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZvBkoT6Gs2
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVI1sLUVpeQ
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2XDopbQHPo
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqPT29iWfYp
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiT7klSehit
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8kqLJQXAxM
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYYBS0KaW09
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡli2tDomRGE
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlOYMAICyi9
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkh7W98Hk4H
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtq0wTDUfvB
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTQpSC0BeyU
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoTbwPlFwFJ
As Taeyang and I served the food on the low dining table in the dining area, voices came echoing down the hall. G-Dragon, Zoey, Christine and Seungri were talking and laughing loudly as they approached the living area. Daesung came following behind them.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe8aeE3Szjn
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaddA6QAH58
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBu1N1R8GoO
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqCWAQBDJbX
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6makWhbwYg
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFALHnMywsW
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkSyhspT685
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4frfAnwLTv
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1z6MgtzO01
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLlUkCnJwuS
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBy82NIpktj
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPvSVi8pRXp
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTILN2naMUE
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFvdNx0wXkZ
"Sure," I said.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgav95NivEf
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVyYGl04wNY
"Huh?" I blushed.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbttoh1pNZK
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNgUip06HvL
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXqjV7FWbbJ
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9ndDMuFbhF
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW5VQnlRt3m
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe0NyVUdS6p
I went over to the kitchen to grab the strawberries. When I went back to the dining table, everyone had settled down and the only place left for me to sit was at the end of the table beside Daesung, facing G-Dragon on the opposite side. Great! Just what I need. I didn't want eating my meal facing him. What luck.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBgMPUzjzKB
After I settled the strawberries with the rest of the dishes on the table and took the empty space next to Daesung, I did my best not to look at G-Dragon as I started to settle the cut quiche on my plate.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfGGax4woyz
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLNAzlwuyoA
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX0RKPLj8l4
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJALqLjuhH2
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRtPr2aXxJl
"Speaking of which," I said as I looked at Taeyang who sat a distance away from me. "You did promise me you would teach me how to make some Korean dishes."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7HmYrbKLj5
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ3FBtrUXIC
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZA6P19ZZGI
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlOqHNRSxDc
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCtgi5JJ0Hs
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCH3Jw4Sv4y
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡepnE7aw0Ha
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdkDtCJcmJU
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPmBS57XXD2
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwRrTwz43zL
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdM5RgIAs4j
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmUFXNK5KII
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMfAe96Odan
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYna4eqMOTR
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8gMNezyjkh
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ27wClGJ9UT
"I also don't get it," said Zoey. "We are definitely going shopping, GD. Don't mind us, Sam. It's not like anything bad is going to happen when we go shopping. Besides, anyone else can come along too."
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxShIXv9Kk3
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBskngyXOSh
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5UoCxKjhUd
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡas6ra3XkNi
I rolled my eyes at them. I didn't want to say anything that might just offend them, so I kept quiet and put a sweet strawberry in my mouth.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnpKHN1gKP9
As the conversation went on around the table about God knows what, I simply had a funny feeling that something might go down today. And I couldn't tell if it was a good thing or not.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1V4qyBaRS4
Sorry for the late update on the story guys. Have been busy this past month and now even on holiday, I still couldn't manage to finish this one chapter on time. It shows I won't be able to update my story the way I used to until further notice, but I'll try as best as I can.
35Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ43wavHet21
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
