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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt28TwVoxN0
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9OJSaQV90c
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0Liuswy71x
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrk75EVqs4S
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjLOfPPh5sn
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4I2WKwddNZ
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrUQloD6qxN
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9MdtKxWbsy
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCFVE16uWYC
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj34EyjSqt6
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhEZ4ZGQLaZ
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBsBHxXs9YH
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVHM2qZF2le
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn2I0OdNGiM
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv5L4Pgkm3Q
"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!
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMoOA2au2LE
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡanV6ez994x
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjYzuuccevM
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTOJFusDb0A
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡys0X3l25mN
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUZAy5M9Bod
"Are you sure?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnoALGwHfts
"You think I'm lying?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3STtD7GsJD
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHQMv8f4gfC
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡESC7noH1nm
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3rOKIXQwvp
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS8RFj1pV9W
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRXTRivwzMZ
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnzx1EiGc1P
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVIZGkc1RuL
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmOsFsv7SY9
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDC3k6vfvny
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLXnuIZkpI2
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkVN7s9F05I
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeb2LsYBfsw
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVYosKqoLSW
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKjCKYwnnSC
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3fkL2CI9se
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtOegdzsoyW
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmel6Hdvpfq
"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?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0ah7QF6Kmx
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡm5DcU9B0lr
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8nrIkqMJ44
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzkA2tGbIPA
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXWq55j3VnE
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM9QUfZZkb0
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJZ4eRp0Zs2
"I know," Mike smirked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqCfWOB7xSw
"Sam, do you have a....?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWyAKNnp9Rs
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9NZNpchOyh
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwVjN9KXKe5
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyzOZ9SAtTd
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPPudv6qR4U
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?
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD1RiI0lnJA
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgxE808sxe6
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpjk00TeSqO
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvdSufexQmX
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoNIElnyS60
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl5pqYDhg4n
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcBMPqchmmZ
"Why me?" I asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy5VUw5y9sK
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcseILTuOsx
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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjPyIaP0eao
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5O53tE8ngT
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3jRmb3UjKr
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlzQB3SKsh8
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjScrDCw4et
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡecBWHvDp4G
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWdmpDllKL1
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡclIKWhcj3P
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?
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZjVS8dMYf1
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzp6kphXcp2
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKYFpUOmjID
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiZXH2WHidb
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYY0L5byhsY
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMcTITyVC9x
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5he6ke7jis
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5VUdBXIh7S
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgdvCEem6aq
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4B9GQnOtZF
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn2zApTm58G
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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpC9vQMxYyc
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMpx1D3Xuqu
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9BMhe6y7CD
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEKt7H1kZzt
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0MNglL64jy
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUnAgfVneAm
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8ZhSt7xtgw
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkQZGdsWHNQ
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlwNUSc2yd5
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe6QDwGJvJO
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl0j2s2X2zH
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFSoegnz2Ps
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl1EFGPhryf
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXG3wf2vdbd
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSFIWdmEUzp
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNCnxhE4uaV
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡABMh8PfXnY
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡflRLyOYqXM
"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?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbCEGTM0fJQ
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUQjBmvJIEy
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBEE41GpeEe
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt09SgXDS1c
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPaUr1iAZgZ
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJc5xX2jTu8
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLHYQCsBRh9
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZFomKtxRjl
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlbvFohkyc6
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ857sMXv2Ok
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnRjXBmxos0
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhPXiAoEmcV
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7ZxpVpf0lr
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMUa9IP8nQ5
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsP41uSnxcQ
"May I ask why?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAPNesQvGI9
I looked up at him. "You know why."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7VtdLuu2Bj
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKQY6xbcveA
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH9XcVZAXnw
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB6bcMCzOjV
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDIYdtVCXeW
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3owhTLWl4P
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnKV3RAhtlx
"Ya, it didn't."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3bsopALzFx
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡivjA5Lewdz
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNoQJCBxNv2
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡElLmdM95yl
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQFInvV13G5
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrpFUoSM95d
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK2nNhJLpOS
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ71AuZp10LH
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVCjINAiY7a
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEcYp7TzQ13
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaRa90ZgLfb
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdpPf4ZYYoJ
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmrabjRQMWQ
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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtp8Itqd7zO
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoy7tK0YmT9
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIWQN78Q3Lx
"I don't give orders, GD."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2GcZRWTm0D
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuA5t6PLzq2
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡokFnO32GkG
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYngpC90OSS
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMkHn6rb9nh
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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTkehFH6IXm
"So, you forgive me?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPT55hqjFbp
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnTeA8cKgsA
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKhvwPwa3pM
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTydHxrAxie
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd6n0Mv5Y4V
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkuDTXNVKy3
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRalWSYH2yf
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡztjRHxzQ0V
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1nmijfj3Ti
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoi9MA1R78B
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA58InrxBEv
"But I don't feel like going."

"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkyNe3rKqr4
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhhNaYOx8hR
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIk3xEbbmCd
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgRtCR7CGoM
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEoqrpK0Gup
"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?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjhGcncFf2B
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN4DChjycOg
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5wBChDRIZw
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeV92ro92Ii
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWcnHaxpTN2
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6WFszcdlT9
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHQmh21fsHZ
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzIB39zdoM3
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJcwJ2wIV4f
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8nOGNNRiKv
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkz4wU80fKL
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcxcB4k69pc
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAbXDsNRuk9
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ65UI5F6Kc4
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzBU6OsSXul
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmrGsJVseYn
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJbfVGosb0X
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY77zA0C7n0
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxj7Z7KOn5U
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJfhxBKgW9Q
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdpOvcg86gu
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZEEdJqNqLM
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjNPT8GyGX0
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7TovVBhCys
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpzvNVgM9Z1
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3V1gNghsJ0
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZWIRYVyRhj
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhX6z8MVRG1
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwiiKkSkPrq
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBQeE2L8K30
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzhIXrDcMXP
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHnxQWTgFeE
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK8sNzcrcnZ
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEcpYujKeTL
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqoKOfAe9Dk
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhJZERHpVyP
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnWmRgc5Y30
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE7GgSFsurN
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ77kwBkQQ2f
"What did she send you?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuW3VhfjgYz
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsFCw6NgZyi
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgVxcjVna0x
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi3sbwpoCZJ
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSUkWcgKWDw
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjdd6LBWpUR
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiyozAkDssD
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhgZoiC8sjV
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ83bqua7v1f
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1IfPhhHsno
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXyKb2wv1Ck
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWHxmTDAhXH
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnWq574xgLq
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkjgbRmNArF
"You can go and we'll catch up."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEIWPSBQuyf
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXDqOVzZLdq
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPHxNT4mQRo
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXJPNO7tz3G
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJqXo14vLVq
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcYyVPxtf1A
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjW0f5STc1s
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOGri8p2uo1
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡs3ruYOGP0l
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgtoE3ykDjt
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtfd4AphB6r
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡc6dd6piG97
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHPE3sLOApn
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXUzxBDEKr1
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjSBXtykVlQ
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZs68UrShQS
"It's us Seungri," I said.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAwSbkbUQMY
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9z3wnARZ9c
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkOyEzjzEZn
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2KNPe1qQ7q
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡINo5Q7Ufof
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHRls2JoyQx
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF046Q0VFUl
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcoenlO1wAU
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD82tMeqwGe
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX5pls3eioo
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU8VVgE3aLS
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKyPVPcVclq
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYrlHJqD8j0
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx1bdXhFMlR
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWvAnbZbqFo
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0kc9Gfwx2Y
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuwgXtwirmH
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡScJVa4u9KC
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3thme62zVp
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLDIHWBzswV
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ37SUTRsLlC
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjtliaA0f3b
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeLtDIpAwq8
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzl3c3hblw4
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvdXyjnN9O5
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYkwzbV0dBx
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡicgedmYxVV
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGauJ6yWsmT
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcA2MUsZCfX
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡta1BgKNiMu
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2mM9CQcopf
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡffYPQnfxXi
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnLQFZvpsR9
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaW2i7Y1zcL
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBtxpVueW8L
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbDsJ4Eguxx
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKRRO1EafGe
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpR1oSlCV5t
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSzbRNJSPbZ
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCHFG1MrjZN
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnbAFpj8xT9
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaA7TK7EEgp
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu9d2eYbpqN
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrfOkeqf7Xv
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbI4ZYJRIL6
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkrL4V5bCRL
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8ey8fU78On
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH02JiNTQXJ
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG3zCEt9D2v
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmUKsNh7W0s
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoFvPCgvkW5
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi3UmWbbo0d
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp0JgH3DNw2
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxbhZP4fP8e
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXWhzzbHD9S
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNmzOuEhn7A
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaLfRexSdIq
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtJVgvf4aqt
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0dpKgey4CW
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4VdKOoNAMg
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6rxt0K1pLA
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGyKP2TnzKR
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8WbpLnHVMv
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5jWkVLC1Jw
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXbO9fzo25K
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR3vWAEi3Bf
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8FGP74J7ki
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBrsvBtr2lP
"All except you of course."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHSurROEBSq
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLUf360p8qO
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGwdrK47rdK
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcT1KLdJVz4
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4YbvWOjfj4
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSUV2B1urPl
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡELYzSCFWAj
"Why do you say that?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlIqdS6T8C5
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡippfubejQO
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI9Fl0uzKMc
"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?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWYnypXvnyW
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWG9tF6OXKl
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPXsSB3MpfT
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGaKbNWbzxB
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsdkirk6GxU
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqBA3lshbce
"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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZzkRUVj1DX
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBOCFnMt62x
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBL4cjoJKqA
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCiGBaWpVd5
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ58WB55zHN6
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqlb2X7zRcq
"I was expecting him to."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX3TdwruKwg
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡacXQV4txDg
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ141idIdDM
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUAgCNNL91T
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYcBCzLv8dK
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDB9MgvpzSa
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvJto4DEi8J
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ03lzN8vxnP
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2IWsHPxYrg
"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?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWqc8F5QUsA
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjfy3gOQ3IL
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdgQlUZ1030
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIunDbTSRjQ
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2QslA1SmkY
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡunO4VmnkrR
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjjiPtfq4lh
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUwl94N6ThE
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYr8IUi8ahl
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxbTlSOJWLj
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpCuqkMTVIk
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpS9ML2mN5S
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0bZJr8UhWQ
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDtIqS6gxmO
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9x0YzFZ8op
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi1b9EO18Nz
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuB1G0aRv0N
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPEr6Qtrz0D
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFHBLIqLHro
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOEOBXZM2Ab
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFigCw8LxCH
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPLtGel65Tb
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNSZDDaZV83
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡehw0ihjFq3
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡESZzV8P5hq
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡalqO6Q1KB1
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡILgUOTSZNi
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi4SoCgLNnt
"Sure," I said.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGZAQhQmGzG
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJjbu0PTRKB
"Huh?" I blushed.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXkdN88kyKF
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0rJXFEEADr
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgCB2NMfQfR
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl5iJ4FuQS1
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1WviBp3NTi
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzUPAW4s8SN
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcOdmsVnzL4
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡc3CADEkRuO
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡahOsYgxnMS
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNhJOl78u69
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡejhGwyW8C5
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6HBZDq7Fvi
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2QIbxyxr11
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7cHYYQD8D1
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDU3auYvmvn
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9aw9bqhOss
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3xzNDqOATF
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlxSTxZyPXK
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJXrximsKBr
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnExcjNE0TZ
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8pBZpM7Xi2
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9c2yHY2hne
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb8aDBiCPiT
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSqWGlmBMdb
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ30pylDec3x
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡptIHlRP0F9
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTlW7SDoeaz
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNRbIRpqtrO
"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."
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJuayVxjcXG
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo2vkVntFM2
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYREKJmsYtM
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu2AQ2u5VOM
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ71LEcbkKwm
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4x6NfvKPWP
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.
413Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCfV2BWTgTY
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
