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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTkvUN06Eci
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtIZQmgXBew
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoJQcPzUJHS
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ61GoWgKHbR
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbwhlmMwGM5
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPu6yge34Kj
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKDx4p01Gp7
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡimJ2b7jpo5
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPQ6GprVDfh
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlzcHC4BYg9
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMgicJqP0Iq
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2cENSsqe3u
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfEZOS4ePeK
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0gqwHbp9Pm
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyU1Teniqbc
"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!
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeYmXIL0BtI
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbn1rpqMOq6
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKkYB0qHhaG
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg2EEY4pOlI
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp4kbn6WMra
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDdXhGfBzXW
"Are you sure?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTB8U5xwEfP
"You think I'm lying?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVKTqNccEs3
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ4UG9hwceH
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo17kkgOq7u
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrAiOZ38jjS
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3XlCh95n76
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVvRUekKkf1
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu1P0itdUJe
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoLQPp6dhxG
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3KeVJE9rjY
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfiRFI0Ivnk
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX8SF8PQ2Ww
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuS2u8yDDWT
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkkR0pLDWpL
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpN7V9zmSA2
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbBuuNpiunv
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4ZMVjrwQTS
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlreZujBnlC
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlizkX5D0eT
"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?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr1Aup0eLwI
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdQsJ92NTFx
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFazJLfA9Yo
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo9gn23TBhL
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYCDKKPsVB4
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdqW77sCau4
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbSynOOwd7n
"I know," Mike smirked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPzMGmN6dxF
"Sam, do you have a....?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmIHb8sTb9l
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy2HfGdWgZ5
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhuNn6RXepM
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa22N9iIslj
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ39QWnHPxjv
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?
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ38IpxHB4ov
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡITdnYAjdj4
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5aYZNbe5uC
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvIZDj43pl5
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPvrGlLjUdr
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxwcbKyE3yc
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZHNI2wnbN8
"Why me?" I asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP0BCEZ8ARR
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5fSJpPPXhs
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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡodpI8Mvm6U
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡttKaccgSeC
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGtwtcPyxgo
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgacoRXL69d
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMF6OA0E59w
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhbTCkYFOru
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSwILfXB0PZ
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlh99DtADwz
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?
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdaHsB58GHx
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWli1YpccgU
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnTy3tcYaiG
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC1UsS5NRVz
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡekmX8FUYOD
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu5oicBp2ke
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMpuI7U8aK0
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkX4ONKz8mj
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzVNXRsUYoR
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmFc0JwibEt
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF826veRpWg
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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoD3QUbBUUj
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ15hXqERfFt
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1od4lB0g3I
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV3UaN9TgeI
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiNxjv2QWEl
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVbtARQ7ZrZ
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtTmYFNz14s
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdpqg8rEimJ
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQEAIBXNKEA
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUhcU861FT3
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAkaYowIa7A
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeuyc0anScj
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWyrynCOZdI
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZEKDmh5GL5
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXuUQRI7nWp
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvkrb6J782b
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuAypNVIx4H
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPvIGnWvCOE
"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?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEYhNQS4i1Z
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6uz44IyT9R
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8AfGJrIyK4
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdh1auHwXMa
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2GSspJOR0a
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡm0613a4uod
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFrKEWa7VuU
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF519XbU6Bp
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOvI7fEOAxn
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3TFBu6CfjJ
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqV9T3snc4W
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhLduXMB8SA
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp6cY8wfHlc
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlJ9ZktcN4R
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFxLiTD9FOb
"May I ask why?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKheQABBlCf
I looked up at him. "You know why."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpiMPzbngFw
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnKMXjyctyA
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAiLAfutJSH
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ40Mgb7FB83
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNTWpMIjBbz
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrR0iLTNzCm
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLyfOxjbBwX
"Ya, it didn't."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzBFanXHFUC
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJb9DeBlApI
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡle5CikfgpW
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcmPHUPMu2x
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4aA7hwivBb
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0hX2O8prfQ
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN29wHgiwxn
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuMWBIPLxyL
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWRbRQ1ady8
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxSVOogVacq
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡETMOOe1ivm
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTCI73omAO7
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8xlOaZQ7lZ
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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiqZvYkvNSz
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGCr3qc45I2
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkRnU2B4AxD
"I don't give orders, GD."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfj3Dxlnf3s
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLOoPyLKBLJ
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9CS1BQt0Ua
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJwSLsAt4dS
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3eYPpTyTlq
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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHKQdd7cmkr
"So, you forgive me?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpKX4LZ7RDv
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZJkrP9BVJx
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSMWCY7V8LF
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF5wtIjIyGE
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxy7GaQFzAs
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHuAnWA1Edo
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ789ApYjh6E
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKYbeM5y7L8
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0CsnmEmKlE
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt24timdUjs
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuvuhXznTQK
"But I don't feel like going."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB8twbwL3sR
"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBSVZFm6I3R
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoG9a4fDtCA
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpzvV48xYvj
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡs9mWkhA6fZ
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeuwIGxhCPC
"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?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBxQdhGapPg
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKh967Yuaro
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkuH6kIGBQw
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzZ62BW8WFF
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOZmXw9sFfd
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMcvhY4e6Uv
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR9dYPTZ2um
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzqdbCSW65s
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX91YEsefmm
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTU3N0tjwbf
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡter74hSuLD
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi4bIOqO17a
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmSYYRPK4dX
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8RE21yc6oI
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF4dGPX2BgG
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyEdDoEZPqy
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡs5wZooquNg
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVHuW61xNOt
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVm96wACA3Y
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgVUEp9JAzw
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV5twUqGhK7
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbLLAnkGkiT
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjv1FEJojae
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0Z0NK6Ncqn
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtA1JRP34AT
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqmB6pkha7H
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpTSE6ObSjf
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx200NB6j9a
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9HwuJboHAH
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpKEYmG7NIW
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYHAG9XPdQ8
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvWzs2jph6d
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE4iRtXiHnu
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ06x2D8m72F
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2evmGQgiMn
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW9TSDIAZwT
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEUhJYdJuRp
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlF5UmurMEv
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQshQoHPBuM
"What did she send you?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE0Sk5GKLxl
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQfzwvWyogc
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5R5dI8imn5
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcYCp113VuH
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡExhoBD9EcF
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUyOBHPDuvl
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw7aYXy2pni
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeO4LidJTOu
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhImj5iwjCI
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG5szZMnjw0
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDRdKlZdvnw
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPCecW84OuG
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH6dC72pgaK
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbWcwxiL61P
"You can go and we'll catch up."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC37d4TOEtt
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7ys5RzkCtT
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡojPM3wSLre
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyp29NDX5Th
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaILqZIFFvn
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ540OL69zf2
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVvqtcKp6i2
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXQMToyV9hV
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQAuIYKL1z1
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgsx28ITrCc
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJFm8BueDOt
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxvT9BnPKR8
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsLgSCrNM4a
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoBNizE0tzv
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtUO4OJaPOv
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTS67mJrzng
"It's us Seungri," I said.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOMhT3rR8Jr
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGEO7iAbUYx
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQta8EwkyAS
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD7XZiK2SWE
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6kwMY2UGlb
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1hEFBvtjAY
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8wMLtMJhHS
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3bm7OzXDD7
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhrHuMo3YtN
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4S4DToXU9Z
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlvQ0QLnlSP
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwm7ZY7pIz7
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeAeUpons9l
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2WyaxyDePz
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfrgXFNQYdh
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmSyEchovx3
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO1btDdvWjh
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYkmzngVQsS
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVhTyHLX9YN
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUyfa1tQTZx
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiJEoSE0DU6
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXwS2MB6RQ2
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX0pYvbXuKG
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyagq62oWWu
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ11ArguS4FG
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTvVcGiE2YF
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpsr7pI7VyS
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKqfxzHClts
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡucfZSa8hVt
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd05P2yF3gc
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1cgCMrF7lC
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaEywI8AHU3
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoyWUS3QWXn
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9B6SWYdXCX
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqXlfH3bCeF
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsCnkyUgMnS
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZVe70iIIfd
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNLrx5waEF9
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHO50dBLdBe
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSJ8EQtsRYu
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbr9PH7lx93
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgcF3q2qMeH
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB7H9ADLBwW
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiVf5ODXkpx
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡedei43mv0p
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQxBn5eWvgC
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaVQDe5HBVd
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW3qh6H1v8Q
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2Fuvs2pQZV
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEvItsoGWel
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQQiomKzA97
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXAJcKwJIFW
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlosV4svT5J
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvE9gYz5jjf
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ9XZS3iaGn
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyQdvkH5fJ4
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡANuPymLdxI
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXUibUNJE4m
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpir5ZBOUeQ
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSIy7SZOVy4
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVgXEEeVhxX
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj9uX4CIbYf
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUCATk5hJYw
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeoIT5gfde8
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB01Ci1x62y
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1sagrJhWjG
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9i4OKw9zwQ
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmicdHmqRye
"All except you of course."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3QfdtgWn7z
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk2ch5ESioI
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6rVYfFfvAD
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQ3H9q9FLht
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrSDiphVtzI
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxEYIHeBd3K
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAKyjIldxAd
"Why do you say that?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLeh1qQDF2d
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDOXsPDAmY7
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7TlYbmFWQ9
"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?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxYDgFXD2GQ
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxrLD9SLzh2
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXdn5W1anhr
It was TOP. And he moved away just in time before I could burn him with the pan.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI0bfN2fJyD
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY3wfyX0gVh
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQIgWdRwQz3
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3CKAHUfih6
"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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLZdm0vrTPn
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP1ENCpUq6P
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr81ufc3bth
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYjBCOgiLg1
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ09DafnhJoZ
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq0Bqpl8K1m
"I was expecting him to."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPaCYj5OfuI
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRVdgH1MxAR
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgVnldvSQID
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfyxNrvd4nZ
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjbe1Nkk6y7
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp8UOKBRM85
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMWt6diqAz3
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIuqzHkrdwY
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa1b7WjygOZ
"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?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJaMla0zBxH
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuahXFeKCzz
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDMRyLg3eT9
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqog9sy5wrt
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNzGP6C0DHN
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU8XrIpchtW
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdqZ9xvShDG
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY0BCuBvv86
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDmy1e9rl8y
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlXdcnnFJ7A
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK54PdwlUaI
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4rTXBeDKn8
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt8OhPc8rwl
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmrQXPaLsc4
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQHTwSclXff
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD0EpapQ1ZP
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF8umq8G7uh
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ1oxO83rBr
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmPWpZl9HSE
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3QxU56qr7C
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvq11k1EAil
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmu71FB6pEH
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuqWC14O3oL
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMOXQfyPbU1
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9up8JMs3W6
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgBMNAQV4OU
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk6woKnofqM
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRBmE4J8Vpd
"Sure," I said.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnpnRrMLlLi
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJTyMbA9F6w
"Huh?" I blushed.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCcT16iLVGV
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfU8KetZQvm
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcIHJdedIkb
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjZhZDyJzbS
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg4OsvrB5Ym
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwPrZBiY4th
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtbTUJmfYM9
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf8FIosl7al
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1eoqzccHa4
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3k4i8OUq4N
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7oNoM0tI2C
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ02qGkgSLHU
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDE5UlGB4sF
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLKBTZbf3tI
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXmkpHF82YP
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZn3aw9HOZb
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ89EszNsjmy
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSIJzJVT6fQ
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5qZZOMY1yq
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6UmIn1iizd
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwByIMyvmNj
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTF94MpbPe8
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6spuYKtiEu
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVOQQN8sPsF
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGcvSc3pc88
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuNybELZVYs
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡara8BNK7RE
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqsCP8MWJbO
"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."
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZMClOzeCh1
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS4cMSk9FBY
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNiyLc3n3u8
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5A4UqKAbpZ
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiLRLgsJ0al
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwufL0oc7i2
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.
174Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD2R8kQ3KcZ
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
