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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡILXuIYeysZ
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5L4crXuqBF
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtkxGdtJ5RM
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBg0DSseXRk
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZoH22pnK0j
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSbyp8VVMup
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNsizYqhCh6
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfqI5a7cwhh
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuusmClcAkJ
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡodTWF470pO
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4kl5DkO2uC
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX15IUGEGNL
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjJJuL3W9K1
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5X5bgwDFzT
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSYy1qPNoNl
"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!
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCUfS5lYeIX
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCPY88YFMJS
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3NxnApUbAC
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTpaUzfj8UY
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGQx7Xzr08d
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM8n5i1uVM7
"Are you sure?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4ipf3oEwbU
"You think I'm lying?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO9tqmIWS3c
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFF8bQ2KVq8
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGjJTHlToJT
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT7XL2Xo2l5
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkJWI8BgwVJ
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeODIdCDI0g
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5h7w7iJXpl
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMSK3f8Nhhl
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRmELW1C4ey
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmrmJUlPP5H
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVeFO45dkzL
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF21cdFzuzD
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAVhSK3FzPM
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYfHEXX7QNB
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJuJtBHYifd
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡveR5bYWl6R
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyqXzSB5aUC
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQNMI06FGu9
"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?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE1vflpuK7K
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡveyjGSuz6Q
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeP3f4y3bsw
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFj6MoOER73
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5jN1xrSLoY
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIDO8ML3gVs
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2FgpJaqAbR
"I know," Mike smirked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5GVeiEOTd3
"Sam, do you have a....?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6X4JcNUpP3
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU2HnQNFhQZ
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHFZY1yrRqA
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLtjEoyskVq
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFl8YpG9CMd
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?
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡawZO27tXhU
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdJnCxGnWoz
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZOzpszgCYW
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4oHbOJ7XZb
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdJVkB3U5HQ
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2z6iia18Vu
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwqKszXiCnL
"Why me?" I asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8ipopJIICm
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrH46JhoAux
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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHfYUUQrjQP
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnO2ltzfvwd
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAhXHMlBIMo
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI657QAqu9V
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDMuu01gewF
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxLX9dP1nxS
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkHxryHxnxH
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBbIC1FC7GC
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?
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ18MSwCII07
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa3P2OD4Y89
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUpmUNe1062
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6Orq5vo4Ef
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ3OiwZ9pCW
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg49VQj80cK
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaRdxPmiORZ
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUIkvqtEP3A
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4Pto8XqKch
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8vpHtvQ731
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAYLvC2FXZo
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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWlYqu8VS3P
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnpepTo9ppb
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGtqqcum0l1
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrO2R243a6Z
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBxbFNgAhlQ
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD1PMS2MhYd
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7pxJEP9fOD
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoBiMKY67tp
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhRM0ElmEol
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRXPPVccXFl
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6iVDMsg5EO
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡirUL4IGHmE
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwrJapfy9M8
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡc6kMk0Ghpm
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXkTiR7s4VE
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk9aFJtHHwN
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2K0UzywB00
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp1xdBKNjRm
"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?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdlZ3goSMe1
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv9cQE97fMO
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBFMBWgIu0P
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK3ybPDmEdR
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5rnYzDGJ0S
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWIQB3LMUa3
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXJmsSNraW2
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrm4hVjc1pR
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgy0b3kGvIy
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkd2M2lguGs
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlYYla2qezK
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxzug6u2kzY
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt4C49bpTgh
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5r1CDVkshI
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYsra3pHmAc
"May I ask why?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsEquoZh7si
I looked up at him. "You know why."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXSW8AlnCEZ
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2exNZWHV1T
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡndcAiz6C4T
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyua32hCqfL
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeaM04kY1ik
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS1OGBlyWlB
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYMKmZ0pX2M
"Ya, it didn't."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKXgNg4J2Vz
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLSJ9XcDO33
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI9vVk7CnzJ
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoCn2hPhhsS
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmL6lFwV2x1
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPeje21zC2E
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYfy2q9ntm2
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJeKoMQOWdq
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVefE24Y4Ry
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCGdGWE3qOq
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU3yItVmj4O
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhjK2U9VT6O
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzfli9tnNQi
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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp9Hhf6dRx0
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHjvag6Dxdx
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2wIKHETSYd
"I don't give orders, GD."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9fxgSPitGg
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL8rkCXyB6z
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa46abtLejT
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRrmut3vWuT
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9jK7QmxBnZ
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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKK4jdcCRt2
"So, you forgive me?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5O3MJs8mCi
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjpMZFUs7OM
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpTp4vOfnHR
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiJe9gKlN7o
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtKLv4TQTzB
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM9yJhTfrtX
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSMj19pPHFp
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdVrDqNpzTA
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ66aWZoHxZa
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4bUlwr3T7g
"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."

"But I don't feel like going."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUzQwihka9u
"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQT0bxE22MV
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyp69wvIb3b
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhy2je0lpnx
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2MEzK0820t
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSkkzxWl6AK
"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?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtJSiC61Qum
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtbU0Fy6N7s
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb2c8XfaE3o
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEl08v1CqDt
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXxbhlpvjA4
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS2IvAFcyYm
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuesiV9JwPO
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoebn4jrgYO
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC8We0ft6YJ
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡredbfR4zb9
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDgjYl9wsnQ
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBNHZfPu2Jj
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyZ4meYToTd
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOWW9gEumx7
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyAL1sjXtD9
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhtQoNSZQvT
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFrpb1JXern
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSc6HQQ36Xg
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMAORcaoAZG
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5oiZlT74FV
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYXSadpI4MV
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5SpLvyS5OW
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8Waqwkfnoj
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsAqEmGVpvY
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9A1VPALjF1
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhvzbVKOSVK
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡygeblN7y6o
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKS6cIb5iLr
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHDnXpEX1HJ
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdm5lCUS9cP
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvdJltITCRb
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7a0fWyoY3w
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg2bCqS2gry
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHx2mgOoqLH
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡageoKXl2NU
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBKheAj8Ptz
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfECTwhcNr3
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9r8eZGQetM
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsdsHqyGGlp
"What did she send you?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj4t7umsn0r
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfWCQGXAIms
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5GZEeiIZAW
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN4lmiIHFAU
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡobludWiW3I
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW0tmnHyZrn
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5bSwWcte43
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt6Bfu76XHH
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡidkeHfNspT
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRtBpeAAzPl
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQM29VohjqM
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg1JsFcZydL
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkDTYCHmEAN
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡswT6EWA6ZI
"You can go and we'll catch up."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjVqp6bn4TX
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡagRDJr61Tv
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5WICz4Hpdg
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDILoJSYHJy
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKGaD5vs27s
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPNqtMdkvxk
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFJ5Yh6xIOA
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt7jpUXaPrC
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrTTyQn8CFZ
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0esshqARCY
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUbEdXVkGXR
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFyoUlFhEI9
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyPQlJv5LwR
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0GBGrBw2Pq
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQWnfREoXF4
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1MATeAzoRG
"It's us Seungri," I said.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqU0jrSal2R
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK2DZZrHK4A
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi4WyBYbggw
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4zqQAnDEnA
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE2zyGLc2Gm
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1LBmpmwt6g
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa2gm8BpWoL
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9Uy8loWmJX
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIuGA5Lbd1U
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5uuBnjCrkS
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpj47MCgWUY
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQuWUwKQsPB
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPoCh6OekAD
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW0bKqS83Le
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv0FT8H0NJo
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVcZHH3XnkD
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZgotVVZB09
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMNkiEnALin
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡprqxoAGR03
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkou1rvTahY
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgrFSg2KbYd
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡm6wbqboA0O
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYIkVHVcUDs
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmNQiuOgvrw
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7L2EvVFznR
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYL2asH3MQF
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDD2zt2Ci75
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi780oPOvg6
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7asVdBn3Nc
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjKtklfhJ49
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9lGFLdUGIL
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5VC9oEGzhO
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡie8RgXpfzc
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrKe06CRtlE
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQMG1hMQj2K
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDXjrHUbtvX
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJK9BzZYRwy
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4Gc44fMhO6
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5JMi7CoEql
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡja2aLqP7jd
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI0jOeoijZ4
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV0IVpsTg0W
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ07CQ1CM4dh
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvr9pvb3fwt
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrZxb9KVFdn
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡX88amc9d5e
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXnLdkbxI9i
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7bBvmOQ3sL
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcwRTdlHT8K
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMjJbwpnvDc
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvtOIJny7BD
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCmNUxFhO9N
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpKB3k6xuMW
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpv8R00jqdK
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHuT5BkeftT
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNmeQJf21e0
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAZb9utTmuM
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO8TDIfOM7a
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTsB2ziWoBW
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbMAOL9hajM
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8zLIan9i74
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdvdBtQcnri
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNTjxfV1J6i
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJhWnWCE9oN
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKK5BFmOiuB
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlkOFon6Oq3
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYJ2SRXkS1i
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡebg8EgSFG3
"All except you of course."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ95pOWOTTGg
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrzXMf5Ay1f
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZB4VEIRKgZ
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9iFjzRNvqa
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXzMU54uDWJ
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡefo80ggNsU
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXOnKiJPgVH
"Why do you say that?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUxz0Tmv0bi
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ95xiDwWF3U
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyObFXzMxg1
"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?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgtrjgxDSAZ
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpae6LNgKd8
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEVPadqCkpj
It was TOP. And he moved away just in time before I could burn him with the pan.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ29GhgvmmYg
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3hjGtqePvD
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjg0kDqspFW
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU5uT6mOaql
"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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK8pMZNnOiA
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGJtJ82feFH
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh4ySJ4EcbV
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDhIbZmYd1T
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyiRXnuOMMn
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJKoaFdtNI0
"I was expecting him to."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1JXR7Z88yp
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtyNJR3jCbj
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcSuC74Do9a
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5ZcDNw32cU
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSw5MvtVty7
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWX6iGgf6Mh
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEFy3DRSrAI
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg49VBj6SfU
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡALHhG4Xcvy
"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?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjMVtx952Ld
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOTmhknT3B7
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡifa0FqxZrd
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIWsAzHw55s
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUPYxOORcCu
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9MVdQJrCJI
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnlbkkBosQv
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1A2QLleuvY
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE0AosVwGnm
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqcVTtUIO0W
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEVcmO8wiad
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7113bpKF50
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfsozAH3fHt
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkwOcRKvaoZ
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFUGKJbw9Vx
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa31atFjn1C
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVoZEw7dKTT
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi6cPw25GJv
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVC9riGSI7j
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvIqPDMnOvz
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiZNbOPIMIT
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOgwTaP3BWF
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5f6zqPWvnu
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwMlrGhoish
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡz63WS7U31P
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQH0CddMp3E
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuwFveMTmaD
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNH51fWNdXU
"Sure," I said.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv0DgwLGt3x
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbCzXcdB02t
"Huh?" I blushed.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmpATwho8VA
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJEsmraVxM7
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRXe53PhSxe
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1SLMFHw8X1
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡticfcRGXkT
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiBT0v1xsFi
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFAJaI2F36Q
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYiqriimGQP
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeAsyZ3UFO9
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb6Baq7nhiZ
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvftOzWBfUn
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMuPZnqkUxg
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZaFmNFy0gR
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyXSLZLIiug
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcUuD4C9dgo
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZzEfvJiotp
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMWCwydHYSF
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK67ikeb4wR
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnOU09mw8FR
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGId45MAkhk
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUrm0Y5jWp2
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7EdJT8gbmJ
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5UcCLTN2nO
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHpA0E7LUZZ
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQiyRtXsegV
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ69KNXwkEGY
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtveVaBPNDz
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLrI39njJrd
"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."
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡotOGkRsar2
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcVVwatqAQt
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi9niUWx5ii
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4gSzDlmDZ8
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ043tq0XyaE
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡczK88JxEO2
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.
308Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFIttr4IOPX
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
