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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3nqcQwblwQ
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg5520NogXc
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFzBHcgKuPe
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMgKibMOfNH
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjdnxg4EHFt
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8CVjZj0zdC
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN6tohQdrjW
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcyoh9YpoN9
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAJN8L6EtZ2
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3DHdgD3NfP
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWw71q7aB5M
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkuHeapXlOy
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfS2iDetASD
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcWCDSTSVc1
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIKjDXytdTY
"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!
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkoGBHJs4Nn
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEtEg7u3osX
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbgnJ3n8hYF
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT0zUAfmW1Q
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡldDdiru6no
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbkK8jcJLWw
"Are you sure?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQB2KNufIx1
"You think I'm lying?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmqQfx6TvL5
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMKsxLxJsAC
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0UcV50IBSS
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy5D7snXG5p
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXVRRnipQ6O
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTd1B5QTHW3
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaYXnuIjB58
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5qEDESGvq2
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpBI8ZFqxO8
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDVMnsPA1pk
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD36negh7RC
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwUQSZ6mRac
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA9bvtNa36D
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3Es0pyvtLv
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡemyDVhspTB
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6ZUPqfX7ys
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYvgnN30lJ4
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ5mBwLim7I
"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?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtArW5ZMipf
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzONDPerEMr
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkzS7l8xjLP
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOedjF7i9PB
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡie6Hp9yfhS
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdE9w0IotJS
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCZjREysgza
"I know," Mike smirked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY0ydBVy6NK
"Sam, do you have a....?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9MFZc3Tl16
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEiWkItxchr
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTHUutuS2Mo
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡps0OCCda5E
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNtDcJeM73O
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?
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2nac277WYx
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmzktNSsYIY
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdortM6QILn
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeTQ5IISrKf
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUD6WBNKjgn
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmpmBml4TP3
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ80XhLaEjAm
"Why me?" I asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeeDNRDNeuD
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGb5tzMUYML
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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp7OpOOeDEJ
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJY13tSto2s
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgTsC4bZkzU
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP8EFvvcTJR
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuDoHNoJGfp
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHyvNvF3fGI
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPZnE7HLcmD
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQrapIve06Q
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?
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFtJJdHyEpD
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡydJglsVOPa
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡil15Ja7qys
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvZbw5HpzIi
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHV1qIgRdcP
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjQmOKp8T33
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8IoMgggttv
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaMtfLqc7qF
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpvM4s1kuYa
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcbhmHIcDGd
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxfmpSgxt63
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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvXFePYLT1s
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmsW358euOA
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4MPd0M1yCh
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjgVWkR5m6K
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyee9FcxFHw
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjS2pZVGy9B
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHc6iNn7cRZ
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV1SxmKVGhy
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnIzU4pSzch
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPrgBoLbwj9
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjjZeezUKHH
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡshNSWVImXt
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcOZF8JIBnQ
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyl55L8Exz5
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFXe3gg2LHi
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqWKPGW07xJ
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXuJLJgdTS0
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyGTn1r5A1B
"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?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXQoqURrODv
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkaFcZC6G2V
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPqUtO6hC4h
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbKuvIyu6Em
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFO5oRYIKjs
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1ycJHyG7Pd
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2u9m1yL6z3
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZbhskUh8R5
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYVP0SYFjvh
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRcvZ2R8kKB
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG2leqDBmym
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6TQq2p2Z25
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8ac869QfSw
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2AOB92D4DG
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7AOR4rWGib
"May I ask why?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwmDU346Tae
I looked up at him. "You know why."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxtpJzLSBZy
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrql20PRv0l
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMXdzTCu0hC
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtd82Fttxhr
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQpVRKEI53c
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbFXKtZ28pG
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBlECKmevry
"Ya, it didn't."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzygy8Qdqtw
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ69Oq6ZFXUA
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVOWKfuco53
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf1dbO5OUkR
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL9z67JZ4uV
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5IXMrTukkG
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcb6kgQYvrc
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqhNPg2perF
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1TYf4vEh5Z
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDrrWhb8RB9
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2yi5HhbLGP
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGB68FBrAN7
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGwlZKSw6zT
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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLgNpPuLrnv
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcFHhpsbkys
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡs703GfWh5k
"I don't give orders, GD."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvW1iN9smCT
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHFCYGwJsLD
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4lEMgluAie
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcDkhe9Opu5
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0ONN8bPu3l
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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5xobRckjgQ
"So, you forgive me?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡICYQ6aZ8Yf
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjZzqCsiNIK
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvma5fYAplV
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmFWb125TIZ
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcPgodaXH49
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0NRpf2N0ts
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPKDZIG8YVd
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5FMhB1PR6r
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY8L9Dd5QZH
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6LbgDm36M5
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvVUbxlJIdn
"But I don't feel like going."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg39nV3tPMz
"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd1eeQXyQ7G
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSrNWUVz4jc
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9tm6X8rG5w
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4yPwMe5zfu
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgLbu3OqYla
"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?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpwIXx14tSY
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPnzvnjOa81
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuhYqG92fwK
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWsKA1ksL68
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJMkBD6MEcR
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1OmHlVilrG
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHKZ9Mb15iv
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPHn5FPXFcs
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCirDRyLyid
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdjmicGGiz3
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3JwXfdwtvb
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡak0unGVTxN
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxgUYnQPV7c
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡa7uzb6jL06
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRUrlNi1GKy
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfSwG20N0bp
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEmD320qwQX
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8rcYzoC3bT
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQyRvUBCAIb
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVWj7TgZEzC
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGvu2XM5Yze
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIES9WV477S
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYMgE9fTnHM
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQvEsBUjbe5
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOCvDsoXPmT
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIfbBjHUNKd
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV8ifeFuYuW
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMOdbdRcYG3
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7z0NLuPeOg
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3bfIBR61S8
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡs1RoKRG62n
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK5WDDcdG0O
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ71gktIvIdK
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFCKIWlvePR
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAcc8X3roS8
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyvNn3v03V5
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzWy8PESlfr
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfydruBY1HT
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp6gpTBEzQP
"What did she send you?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdyupN1Y0tH
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn8Lysr76Ai
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQrEED9JK9D
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHgeGcS641B
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLPelAvy8fD
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVbhiGHmnIN
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmQQBi3BdlY
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGovrMU2mJO
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHjdjw4qtJE
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtLtoDPrvyS
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQcZf8IBy0U
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlgsbv99CMf
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwpFOdYraa9
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYxj46TZfr1
"You can go and we'll catch up."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡe4tYna45j8
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡP2JjYFCSTf
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKRT3BgjFnv
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMpE9MeKICV
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDBs8Ku96MG
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzEDNYJMLtN
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT6OjTgsYRS
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmRXpWuvrwm
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY2o0EmcRIl
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpWMWh3YYdT
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdAoJqVIKe1
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWS6z4zGWot
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡekGkgM2zHD
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlKrlrM6ZGw
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNJP0df55mE
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ39gLFbv2lk
"It's us Seungri," I said.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFWWLtIim2u
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMK58P4mcSP
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgqHj6EgMBQ
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXhVzhdYEGc
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoZVsx6IP0v
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4Q5aVa3uUv
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkSDyFR9ve3
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5oAZzfwGeU
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCrzV4apv5b
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMFZsqf2mlu
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsPer3Elm2N
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ55bqcxwTNP
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKUpCw1ooJ5
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU8dRnyJUc1
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVRdpOkLgql
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2B5gwoP6ab
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQnx3OtlQT7
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9pUqkDpVKs
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU4atfspAEt
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjzyLIpObbv
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM3bRCKlU0n
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡko23QQ1Jwp
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxAC3zcLg8X
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡm7PlwCYPzu
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3SYy80xxkR
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvqJfPzHzSk
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnCNo7uqmne
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCsBKQFIgSe
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdPtZaLbVYw
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT8LQpZ0O0m
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdwvHsFw5i7
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKheKy4DfGr
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9cnD1bFeZN
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnik0XdNcXA
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtSckT9mPti
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB1My7p28cu
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡheZn9EPA76
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ4gzc4KF2X
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuiFF8sfCZv
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA73VsgIEnd
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeZuYHptT5c
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcpqmnNHTGx
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPDYzjdupUQ
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuNytqq7ipH
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡch3jWDhmgi
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEfk8ogbxnH
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvb6bcLY9zT
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt0Ufw9kZNN
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnr7wDqoz8v
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpmbcUFFXXt
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsJcpuODi9k
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYxTqHPGfUE
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIB78sLq6yz
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlYuvfCUGaK
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdtVay6vHNx
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡScL3spsprf
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJRYeiChwlF
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyk1clm6nYs
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3dfnAssL5g
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl4RjRL1l5k
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡihMCEZJN0i
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlSG8eQtMMR
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOP5ayqNVp7
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfbq9elims1
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsWuaKvjqYo
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYmq7isEnNV
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtNs2trgVvI
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiRcSKxi897
"All except you of course."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB2ThkIe1GP
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtDOJK5L1zq
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWQucErhCSB
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTRvwgVSLYm
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPOO49Q66IF
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWkj7EcR4S8
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsOYvPfirFW
"Why do you say that?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSjrkiM6kjC
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡn3hjcwe0vN
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWh02u2BT7C
"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?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJRKmuY5sYj
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLo0ECXYPx0
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM03fjHhIAz
It was TOP. And he moved away just in time before I could burn him with the pan.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkUxGtRt8yH
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKLVGdFSdBv
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy2PQ6LG1bU
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcVdpaW66i6
"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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaxfRLRS3QV
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5wA9fkwdxY
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXvK4exO9FJ
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaoVqQzQUsi
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHIJpSKhHWt
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7MPiNhnw1K
"I was expecting him to."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ26xyTSyb1U
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbCLWnIaAR3
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXmjQiuMgua
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡej0W3BcdUI
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN4IEwWDone
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaYBdvcOc7U
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLl5TThiqhx
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡT5MoupdSB6
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcZ26OySlqq
"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?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsnpjLNiat5
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNv4vNNhQPn
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeCzeMo5aX5
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuAsM5WT10u
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvwOiQ2CGxP
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNleoZ97tPf
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqY9MYrGQWn
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLZxDfoxRIG
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwrWGcWn0su
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ6uniIgtTk
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeIsthHzlCB
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYRBCVaJSrO
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡaTomfVkk7H
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF51OG3shBh
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDthGZ99r0m
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgZmhZqAkNf
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy0sYWRrrEv
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqhEEVis1kd
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4D5FBAf8Yx
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCq0YNW1UC8
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq1WjLszWVE
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuD18XVOmep
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwSrb0YqoYs
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1mxWqJypqn
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4rrhJbW0zU
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqvZXtIAaIn
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4Zz0FH3QWn
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUlUAhLRtzA
"Sure," I said.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj0TzZRALx9
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6jF5oliMxe
"Huh?" I blushed.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRIuT84YHnY
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvZGhfPVV3z
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡV35qlAy2Nh
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡB76rrzjYmL
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbrqVCk2dQT
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhr6t70LxIj
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjYXexHyspE
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUnEuUeQZM9
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDivyXg35if
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKpQMTEZ8dk
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb6NcCrjenP
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6NLJHbB7Rx
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUDMjCgMbtN
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJiaFKAIf8H
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCDnjcvMBfP
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5vB68RSsHz
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAe6P1dRt7i
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ03onwGmhNf
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGUokfvUBeG
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi8SyO8C45q
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDfBzHSQd3q
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9xcKcGuDIb
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡueV3rcRV12
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdKtFnoutnu
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCMrg1VAsrM
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8mTKLi22ei
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡME8LYYxHjG
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxrrYIThEUf
"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."
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuHRh4Syhv1
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQuPiUFQzyK
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi9O5WA1Igq
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAr1CucpESm
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3BRMhWaIFY
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPOkTnMGgrb
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.
542Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZWfUKGBDFx
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
