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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC2QvykuWUp
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2PtOOpVkch
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡovQVjqfetL
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ95O0Ank5je
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡum3XaSn6cz
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnB5dwoEMD7
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxMdlMOJ6T2
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlooplzhJFu
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj25ogCNUoq
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2WcgiZ416Y
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3rmsQI17rH
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCKKI80kWVI
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmYFzeXyiYE
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh26DvWlw4N
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeGxYoGZJCV
"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!
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrYT7x746q3
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLI6RlBNH8S
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡumy1lXIlGk
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh8jafQikXJ
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnIrtzN5mud
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeYAN0VLIhr
"Are you sure?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2yAlJPc2a9
"You think I'm lying?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMxRe1q16Nv
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk2uUQuQBc8
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2fHDBqsNtC
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXfaPtcfvj3
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0D6uyWZoxc
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxAred2FGQ8
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjNouDSGTn0
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWoE2TcZSBw
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ487wmky21p
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaldzPQrwJP
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwGdaJ6nIZY
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe36lztG8wI
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyG3LgSCIol
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxV2L6LRttQ
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrIUy4u2LDy
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtbfwXwpzeO
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVMJXxQJpjc
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfLVaj0EmLh
"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?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVetaLqGaZV
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYVHISeyCDS
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPTDK4XKIjw
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0eKtpvT5GT
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1FOInHXWjB
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO9vrTzoEiH
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaiWVMlrFr7
"I know," Mike smirked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzsMoba596p
"Sam, do you have a....?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKUzglsPK77
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡriqodcJESb
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMrEyPPIVYO
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlJJUZ4nPOv
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWgNnE0zoFr
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?
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡArSe0I4ID3
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxZMgUMlhBa
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMyrAV6Avug
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW5HPjHxnqb
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqYbdf50AnB
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL9acJ6ikCN
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAySiob0Vzq
"Why me?" I asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ70oidEodeL
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPZV0cF7uZJ
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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiAhaTGmTBW
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkJWJ2anqnC
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcdC7dOMljM
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4BnmMg29aE
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5vn2eqcCRA
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe3NQb1FXmY
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJqA6NnnPwx
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtC2REhiRT9
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?
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr8deZogEmC
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD53ecQBzF8
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ79La1qrjhl
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtItHXs5d7r
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPLxSZJJBjp
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKrywBAW3Td
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡonVS4Tla6s
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCWe9PeTyQd
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXAEw6g63j0
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgIncAs5VCb
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoe8CoXQhvG
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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvsh9Zoq5rJ
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5IrtU1V0Xy
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡclNkXchOuN
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvZfM9ebzkD
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiplKTgMPgJ
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡot5cN3o5RS
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSnR8a1nlAH
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYT7kD0AqQR
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaekfq8jOda
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH5yzdIAA4a
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi34pnIqX8g
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPjv9yWhRKu
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2sAB1OjCon
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNHrR7OzxMI
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOB1kKAg2r1
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxut75vVp7k
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNU1eL83lGP
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3vr4PcE5e6
"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?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7LBATH5O6c
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8U7a9SicdZ
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1gutlkFZqT
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6xFH7ypdmw
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqvqxGzpZMD
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYOUthfNWfd
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQmKv4S4t5r
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZvWq2C0sCM
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5AAZ3RfROv
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4ERPaVHeoM
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFohCOkfOMR
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡARrbRv36mR
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBrwtgGoYUN
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKzb2bZmqN9
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡho0JASfEZC
"May I ask why?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvB324kIsiC
I looked up at him. "You know why."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf3cq6oqtPe
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC7DDRdv6Ru
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIn5Mpa68Dp
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLStXjAmK3b
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYFjBiaPOgH
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiY5oLvzSDc
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡho5LmolI9o
"Ya, it didn't."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU74dJnnzbD
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhuCmTnRsfv
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡExTJjg8FYi
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3Sp869wtJH
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ70cJn67fyn
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKdVEXeU6TS
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoXLO6RYClH
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡksIwc5Ckkb
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH5pDJnSEtM
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxSJiGQaEsw
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmNY4jb9Wvu
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8cAxQkVIYo
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuvheOX4ZCx
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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvYkt3EEdA9
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIJmihdCcVA
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBp6SEUQITs
"I don't give orders, GD."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgorASufwIQ
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGqz3IQgk3c
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVEC1wgWmZP
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPgegQ6L6Dt
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWkTvoCmFXp
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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRS3tUAKQXK
"So, you forgive me?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGM0U3Q1PWE
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjTZconPK2M
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaTEdnzO8pL
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS6yS0BJ2rG
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGKzGXX3MI5
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡySZd6nMUvc
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGniefjPYlg
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE21dIYbLKT
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRiMQwSeiNJ
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvt6NHm6xks
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOZuPccNoYy
"But I don't feel like going."

"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDbcKYU65rr
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxgq15DeT1c
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrj1inHFjCl
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3fwg0va7AC
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy8SY9XCoQE
"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?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAiXBAkjfEW
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBIc8YcE8jf
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLRnDQxBtVr
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7vK47kprA4
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnbMzkLLYU5
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdFXBiO8Th3
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡloz5tHqT80
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXvcK5wvQvq
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWJ5TkoHthY
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxDn6JQN9KW
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9HrmswTYno
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡok8tdtRVW9
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUtNhAw8oFS
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkPALb3i41G
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtq0CUe5M91
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV3vIl6fuuU
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnOKYAV1S03
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzutz6nNc9X
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe51KOmQ3Rk
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXe8HcIDeBE
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡha9KJg8xsh
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuGnvqbSheJ
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBcYJUasxp3
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcGelrYBzv3
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRZKfvbqnsE
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ73R5NLggiF
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkvmyQNwrn1
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvf1guxsUVU
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz2Yq8Mbp2u
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5mZrUQfriD
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsNSu4m1whW
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrRZph7ctxe
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXCBX4wNjX5
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWqTPUXcWut
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTVkSlC0x5y
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM2an0eTNyQ
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTvgMkbKw8f
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ01alUwXV33
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtP6Dc6S6Uq
"What did she send you?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWNVdAgplNx
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡANzL9th6pk
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaSagwnmotg
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPq4LEE13ZO
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBACalLEDS3
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX2W8jtvFSY
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWHo0t2Fu6F
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjIfWSBHxeA
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBcDykW1QBT
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOyBdz4gezn
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUS5aPYLwv0
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ77dKFxGHni
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBcRcqqhGFQ
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3zJ9Jy7v5D
"You can go and we'll catch up."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwcKJXqhD7F
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWISNViecYT
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ32tNcdmjJr
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXfEIZB8hfg
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWcZO0U6e75
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8b8BYkOkEx
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMBNrjM3s4i
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI0vIPvDWKK
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1SWatUvifa
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ2LDt5qwyu
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPgvlZkQCgB
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmitisXdYgt
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ86vUJZZavx
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡElO9GOtxqK
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9N2C6vAjuQ
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNCXiwGhwQN
"It's us Seungri," I said.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4v9TEPH8n8
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTwVW91rKlW
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB9yyr5fJC5
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxHBGBfwjoT
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrhqmdAoFkK
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBVTaulfJ5S
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPCzqjaGPt4
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJVmahAKGg4
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrR0k2uGidL
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa2nKsGU9wo
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdfjApBb9ir
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeJje4lIKDW
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvOYSyrztA5
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSOkbpKNAT6
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ28PlmTG5Dk
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ18801GrA92
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG1R0dhL1RF
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7TNXe9QVfu
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfgDogE4Ife
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLVfDWtUHuL
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmCF9zUjqPy
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU5Pxt6byPr
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMAn2djw810
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTnDzxctRCj
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqxpg4Smgrb
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHdM4g0oM8p
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN2NqBlD5dg
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoENNUSGh88
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsQmfVCgjoo
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJcrxC3Sg86
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxxKklEc2Vl
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaocwE79Ury
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjbKLInOBDX
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHausvP7IR2
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ32rfz6nI1O
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡglZ06InVj1
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS1cmtHcAq4
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDt75JGc6od
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVFyVFFD3AX
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5tYhPsZ23p
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6GTdMCUYJi
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbEXKADqdH0
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbNu95kC4mF
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡutlnH70B6J
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUhoS2Yvscd
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtn0Xx5h9aD
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOE7a2Oi2po
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMjGbbIaHam
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVDKVBh1Sqc
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwfRDqTsIWR
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7JbNVnv54F
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrZjbVUtXNT
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡak91XzVphR
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhoBscwPHBU
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn3UHfQCIOp
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBYJLZHkU7C
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMo1nRdUHUv
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBiywZNnBwb
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ08aKTard5y
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQRXRfO59v0
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF7idDh10Sx
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcTFmEzw6NB
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFDtCvIqASW
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAx3TLHaNI3
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlUX1hBANHn
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpm1SZxBq7u
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmI1qBN7MAQ
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPWLMX2oyQ6
"All except you of course."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWftY8svKSC
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeelgFW4NIF
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDyBokzqJ7h
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP4xi2GKxqD
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaFSvWxs0ka
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGYIhm3QNNY
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4C3BV5hFDI
"Why do you say that?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjNobikILl3
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV11EjoIabv
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9g8cS3iaJV
"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?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT2Ihe1CXMY
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0I02njq6tC
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.

It was TOP. And he moved away just in time before I could burn him with the pan.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2PBL7PNKMA
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡINjIPH1gNv
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTp8MaXyZ5u
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy8k9TrZHbM
"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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiUzCCpjEG6
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9zwhlHfTHk
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnfsIom9o3l
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡamfKYS9hwP
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoFpVXKDcDk
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx1zZKYlUmp
"I was expecting him to."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfwMvgKnq2U
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgrAFmxpZK3
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkh5ThPRCJe
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2ZKOu1zSrB
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNI2nnpVNpF
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQJXVCeLuRu
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJTutIZvhSX
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTFFV22kXPK
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDGtBC6QnAH
"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?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSjBmNkmiBe
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡguTVqWXLUN
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvytY9640tF
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHmZjJND56f
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjmKdha9fW4
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3rCwqMCvM6
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbusaObXrh4
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHAqrNHCXXz
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ101ExrqaXd
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg8HJivVgXc
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkEMK6AsJyp
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡizqjeXLE7I
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRoQz7942q2
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfLH1wOCYxa
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoQKOaYMWDT
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFvhw4pF9r6
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbGRSInHlmf
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwL6gzgfldS
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfSnwosV4Bn
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbN42GNqn9M
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCFxIV7Zatc
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3J5rfuTbzu
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzKhENXrekA
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0XgyFbGEm9
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRqSXR8rKk1
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfULwyzu0NO
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBOMRnr336p
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdYQ6VHfnsz
"Sure," I said.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoHuad2JH3x
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwEliwIKzMR
"Huh?" I blushed.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZZPP5Lxl8Z
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVwGpHTsqBv
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX8ajrG2cfO
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3eOT4UEBfM
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAajgz0a1rM
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxpUHJmoLyD
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡABSovWi9xx
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW7HgnhhyjI
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkQ8fyRBWDa
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzdMrChoUqV
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsm3aDrrUZK
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDkBLz9Db5g
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlFu766ov1P
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqtbtDPU5JU
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPmeq8NALYF
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2jkwrrDPWE
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEm7QQLFLQp
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFFMT6UHGGF
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmJZGfq7Sg4
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwVqELhpr2f
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRHVDB2yiIe
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY4YYLdpT6F
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXDAnimFHOH
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXFpSj1URkD
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6iI4htiGmp
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlj3WHlim27
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ40MuS5wNXQ
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq3988qCr6Y
"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."
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQsiTo0eHnh
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOriAWaGsYD
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjoHsxQTahZ
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ87rr1PrgxO
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxlgPVd0CFY
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgZnXrVOk55
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.
133Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkecMFeC7u9
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
