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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHzjM2lcMzJ
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv1J8VZJ3oO
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJKIr0U1w1w
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6zaQuTyVDm
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXSU57iSHtg
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ63xqbzyqaK
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAAq862p7G5
"Sam?" Zoey who sat to my right asked. "Do you happen to have any threes?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdjaYOy4paj
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡseU5sDsisL
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRgOAn00g5C
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEQgug8VBkA
"You're already losing the game, Zoey," said Mike who sat in between her and Daniel. "You've too many cards indeed."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlz7D21dr7x
"Don't push me into saying something you might regret later," said Zoey as she gave Mike a dangerous look.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡujDlgoxUlq
Before Mike could hit back with a silly response, I interrupted him by asking Christine to my left, "do you have a nine?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOVWXQIp8qI
Christine stared at the cards in her hands. "No, go fish," she replied.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQofJw0R1lR
"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!
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvmpZhzicdd
"Daniel, do you have a king?" Christine asked Daniel.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ589lWZvxB0
"No, go fish," said Daniel as he smiled at Christine.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUrwOFjmyKK
Christine stretched out her hand into the pool to get a card. And her face cringed upon seeing what she got.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkQFOrCRfCh
Daniel turned to look at Mike. "Do you happen to have a two?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0Sf4HIPiw6
Mike looked at his brother. "No, go fish."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡov2KXkT4cT
"Are you sure?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrog9dqqWaR
"You think I'm lying?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYTxmvNUtny
"Anyone can lie in Go Fish so that the other wouldn't win."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwt5ALdhTKc
"And if it comes to Mike, I wouldn't be surprised," said Zoey.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf06A3YecHR
"You're the one whose lying because whenever I ask you for a card, you don't have any," said Mike.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLUJ5nvvNSi
"It's because I don't have the card you're looking for!"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRXDwWkF0XX
"It's the same here with Daniel. I don't have a two."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtpt70xXSgu
"Can we please get on with the game?" I asked. "Afterwards, you can fight like cats and dogs."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWci29Lw2lV
"Does Mike have to be the cat? Because I can't wait to have him for lunch," said Zoey.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡItTyj4nwda
"Dogs don't eat cats," said Mike as he rolled his eyes.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUBreaLu3Cq
"But they are better and stronger than cats."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5421cNnZJN
"Says who?" Mike and I asked at the same time.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAzSAKkPJnk
There was a pause as all eyes were on Zoey. Christine almost burst out laughing but held it in instead. Zoey sighed.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVTNoVkd0eK
"Forget it," said Zoey as she looked at her cards. "Let's just carry on with the game."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡk05DyJeM9D
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡptZK3Dj3cL
"What? How do you do that?" Christine asked in amazement.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRCJymF9sWq
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡr1OzBme63g
"I'm just lucky I guess," he said with a smile on his face.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrcgI4qImC1
"'I'm just lucky I guess,'" Mike mimicked his brother. "Admit it! Whenever you shuffle the cards, you always win."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmYfkxAxiCH
"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?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzpMjSp78b4
"Since today." Mike scratched his head as he looked up at the ceiling.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1mlIuawEqQ
"He has magic fingers and you know it," said Zoey.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgbNaGaBr0F
"Fine, let's continue the game, shall we?" Mike turned to look at Zoey. "Do you have a ten?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIN9FUZON3Y
Zoey removed a card from the cards in her hands and gave the card to Mike.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy5tqYdAPWd
"Thank you," said Mike as he took the card and withdrew another ten from his set, throwing the two cards at the centre.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoHxfVYGKso
"You're not welcome," Zoey muttered as she rolled her eyes.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGsUFyfcJ9U
"I know," Mike smirked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIOXNRdBAr7
"Sam, do you have a....?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ53LizXyutk
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXdzKymmk9y
"Isn't anyone going to get that?" I asked as I went back to looking at my cards.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡp1YN6XnTX1
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqpX3hMGSog
"Hello," said Christine cheerfully as she put the earpiece to her ear. "Oh, he is here?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLdU0bZ4u7h
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?
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡw0frlz95V4
"Mmm, I wonder who it is," said Mike, with an eyebrow raised.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvmI9jM5Eq6
Christine looked away as she said, "you can tell him to come up. Thanks."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpAXSPvAgb4
"Who is it, Christine?" Zoey asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnXEmRtgEfw
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmzhn8vwCjb
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq7rZq7nfzo
"I think that last statement was for Sam," said Zoey.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeD9d6f4bcK
"Why me?" I asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqBt0Qpnd2c
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVTcKs3owKk
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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuugJ1v62OA
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNWea9FuHZN
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ70cApdstga
"Well, some of us don't," said Daniel. "May you clarify on that part, please?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvIkW7zE7Et
Mike hit the back of Daniel's head. Daniel growled in pain as he held his head and looked at his older brother.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡx9jNjMaUQ0
"What was that for?" Daniel asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlVQIzdFi0g
"You act like you don't know what's going on sometimes when you do," said Mike.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMZ9HsEmI5I
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1I8UxVQOEM
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?
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1JOaOfg8i5
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLcLZk35ZGY
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqkSSR8WJrU
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiAukmCKWho
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPetXXwVOP3
"Gosh, you're still worried about that?" Zoey asked as she laughed. "Just so you know, I can never stay mad at you."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡte6Ll4985n
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBT7yv7MvXJ
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzRP0HYdmWO
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmP4w27XcWe
"So," said Daniel as he clapped his hands. "I think you two have a lot to talk about. We will leave you two alone."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡg5286tY96w
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡK2fCFMHahs
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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKV17weQScV
"Don't forget, she's mad," said Christine. "You know how she is when she's like this."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvijtHz8url
"Aren't you going to say anything, GD?" Daniel asked as he looked at G-Dragon.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEC9C0KA0Kd
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgsYl1pZVmF
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhyJPf5BRCe
"Then why are you here?" Mike asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGbAuz99DeA
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfzcIpUKhmN
"Don't sweat it," said Daniel. "Just like Zoey said earlier, we can't stay mad at you, so we are cool."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiVMIPCJCV5
"And to make it up to you, I would like to take you somewhere."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgKDhth4PbF
"Ooooh! Where do you want to take us?" Zoey asked with so much excitement.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlJ0zURZXNk
"To our dorm. BigBang's dorm."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvsnnjHI2oO
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBC8QneagW7
Christine and Zoey were doing so already.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0fdgrUyrRl
Unfortunately, I couldn't.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYNS4AGi5zK
And I felt I was going to get sick. Sick with envy that is.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrDJ3kmnNdt
"OMG! Are you serious right now!" Zoey asked as she jumped up and down and gave a scream.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwSNFMo0LVT
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡekjSFlEgvX
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq46LMvHKAv
"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?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt3ueI20rfr
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtbxg7j1WZZ
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkLqUTqOQsb
"I had a talk with them this morning," said G-Dragon. "I convinced them you should come and they said it was okay."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡavXBtexkt7
"For real?" the four Toxins asked at the same time.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjeWjYtNHE3
G-Dragon nodded his head. "For real."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡh0a1ZK1KnW
Looks like the universe was never on my side the entire time. Dang it!
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5PCALr1QLg
"We better get going then," said Zoey as she clapped her hands. "I'll go get myself ready." Zoey rushed out of the lounge.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQW8KqZAABw
"Ya, me too," said Christine, following Zoey.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOAImmP02hM
"I don't want to behave like a girl but it looks like I've to get ready too," said Mike.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyw2vkmjYPe
"I am right with you," said Daniel and the two brothers left the lounge.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡM9POYxLPd5
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFYF3E74Z8Z
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbbxCUAEs82
"Aren't you going to get ready?" G-Dragon asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTVHaXtH9Ww
"No," I answered as I moved a queen of hearts on the floor using my big toe. "I'm not going."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUjfciJ3VOl
"May I ask why?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡegU6PMl6BM
I looked up at him. "You know why."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9uFx6TGDx1
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC1PfhgJ18L
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡinkVH1mWZ3
"Too bad indeed," I said as I finished gathering the cards together.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡphmskZJbl1
I stood up from the floor and this time, I looked at G-Dragon straight in the eye.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKM6MScw3Dn
"I know you did this just so I can forgive you," I said as I gave G-Dragon a smile.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzvHVU8SyH4
"And I can see that didn't work," he said as he smiled back.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLlS9jcTG1u
"Ya, it didn't."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFZ3aaOaUVz
"What's it going to take then for you to forgive me?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxblAfrXPv0
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrpFLuCJU36
"You look so sexy when you bite your lip like that."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1X74FeerpY
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtubLgQbZjW
He suddenly raised an eyebrow at me. "I'm impressed."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkx1KGjC8VA
"Impressed with what?" I asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWl6H4VSF5L
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnOoocjQr9N
I smirked. Good. If I could keep this up, I might just have him begging to his knees for me to forgive him.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtGteW6I42w
"Looks like your charms don't work on me anymore," I said. "So, if you could excuse me, I think we are done here."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡruKY7BIfGb
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ18wmIK9VFk
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkQSkiHv3VI
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQBYShSx9C3
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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMa97fY7d0K
"Obey? No. But yes, they would come and bring me over if I ask any one of them to."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0zZrZ0ZW08
"That seems more like telling them to carry out an order."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡie3njxcQl6
"I don't give orders, GD."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcAnXdWoTIu
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTG2dRl87Ny
This time I blushed but I kept myself under control again and tilted my head to the side as I folded my arms.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4U27L755BJ
"Nice try," I said. "That didn't work either."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡafn17DCY8w
"Are you really not going to forgive me?" G-Dragon asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv3LCf33Nsu
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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoy5IJaWvwD
"So, you forgive me?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBplbF6h1kA
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMASIRJIsfw
"What?" G-Dragon raised an eyebrow at me.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFspcwxkG6K
"You heard me. But that doesn't mean I'm going with you guys to your dorm."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnbpJt3zBBx
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBCha3QiHHh
"Okay, BK, you've done enough," said Zoey as she folded her arms. "I want you to forgive G-Dragon right now."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡak18wluKG2
"I already did," I said. "And by the way, those black high heels look cute with your outfit."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiy0JcHHHvb
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1B3TKIctXx
"Oh, thanks," said Zoey. "Hey! Don't change the subject here." She pointed her finger at me.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡsXvsf4agM6
I shrugged my shoulders. "I'm being honest."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3Iu24i4d7q
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTOz27Kc68F
"But I don't feel like going."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXZyoMOXjbk
"Come on, Sam, it won't be fun without you there," said Christine.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2UYzqbzaXW
"But Zoey and my brothers always call me a party pooper. So why should I go?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIB1DgUmo87
"You know I only joke around," said Zoey. "It won't look good if you don't come with us."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMKpO9Pa7tE
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8yIbUa50vc
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0rl67cAYNy
"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?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZqWBl2rtVI
I rolled my eyes and smiled. "Please, this time you're going to an apartment. Not a water park."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOC9YipLSGZ
"Anything can happen you know," said Zoey. "We can burn the place down."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEIZTm5ygiv
"That's if you even try to cook, Zoey."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiEL8Cmcuwk
"Okay, are you coming or not?" Christine asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡthQWrTLRfr
"I'm coming. But only because something weird can happen if I'm not around."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvM9lNG3p07
"Yes!" Zoey and Christine high fived each other.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo5Ad4vgMbS
"I'll go get ready then," I said.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1vPGMi48H3
"Finally," said G-Dragon.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiLVkisy8Wb
I turned to look at him. "I'm going because of them. Not for your sake."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡu2tuTLTosh
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKx21n9LILq
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMPxNLGnzQG
"Okay, I'm ready," I said as I stood by the doorway.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4TRBICAbR0
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3GRrdLyYid
"Well, Daniel, I realise I can't leave you four all on your own. Collins would kill me."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2HYXKdzsti
"You look really nice, Sam," said Zoey as she also stood up from her seat. "Isn't that right, GD?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDya4VQfWUp
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkLOyY6t85n
"To be honest, I really can't wait to see your dorm," said Christine as she smiled at G-Dragon. "I'm so excited."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCHbBeWEGnZ
"We all are," said Mike. "Aren't you, Sam?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQWBKCiN6di
"Mmmm," I muttered with my arms folded as we waited for the elevator doors to open. I wondered why it was taking so long.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYlBQZagOaF
When the elevator finally came, we all got in and when the doors close before us, I pressed the button heading to the lobby.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuAeZ154IiZ
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt9IRlgq9Pw
"I see you're wearing that pendant I gave you," he whispered. "Looks really nice with that dress of yours."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJiwu47bhoc
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgvycXBKixY
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIERi8bAsgK
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOdxOpxxuwl
"Well, someone looks irritated," said Mike behind me.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyZQVBmIgos
I turned to look at my brothers since I sat in the front passenger seat. The two of them looked back at me.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt4rP7gT8CH
"Zoey," the three of us said at the same time.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiQ9zT3Ltm0
"What's her problem?" Daniel asked as he clicked his tongue.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡI5KiS0UaxX
"She's trying to make me forgive G-Dragon," I replied.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR1o6nDjxuG
"But you have, haven't you?" Mike asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡF9kVvm5oPJ
"Not entirely," I said as I thought the question through. "I want to, but I just can't."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXG60mmsE8k
"I understand you," said Daniel. "You just need more time."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJDJruFuTBX
"True. And I just had to come because you guys weren't going to forgive me if I didn't follow."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvxORTOaVzx
"Ya, well, you're the one ticket for us to go anywhere we want to go."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmoIZacrqgU
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOnGAyjuS3m
"I don't blame him," said Mike. "Looks like we are way too hard to handle after all."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3amu9NOz4H
"And so is Zoey." I stared down at my phone to read the message again.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmF0EAanVrq
"What did she send you?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvmrV3K1IfE
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCU8lOIx08i
"But you were envious when G-Dragon said he was taking us to his dorm right?" Daniel asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUJ2gKUEsmx
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJjEw4YJ6ij
"Playing hard to get. Nice."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXC9UMLYHgj
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHwVDAIoHqe
"You may think so, but I think he's going to try in every way for you to fully forgive him," said Mike.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi2umx5HMrT
"How do you know that?" I turned my head to look at my brother.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZmsyrZR3HP
"I'm a guy, I know." Mike gave me a smile.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡiAHKYV5qnD
"We'll see." I went back to looking in front of me and my eyes flew to G-Dragon's car before us.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrfI7AEGJG2
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKSwf4WRZmY
"This is the place then?" I asked as I looked at the grey apartment building in front of us.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDmwZEMLHHI
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ57kGCoSBbZ
"Shall we go in?" Zoey asked. "I'm really dying to see your place."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5ZAfojhTpf
"You can go and we'll catch up."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYYJv3hkuhZ
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSntu1FCVy0
"Haha, very funny, Ji Yong," she said as she folded her arms. "I don't know your apartment floor number."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrVkev6NJou
"That was very silly yet very funny of you, Zoey," said Mike as he laughed.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXmYz5lRQfF
I smiled at Zoey and didn't say a word as the others laughed along with Mike. All Zoey did was sulk.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡotKgDOzKfI
"Come on, right this way," said G-Dragon as he led the way.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIGvJQG5DFw
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWlyPmHih4t
"This place is lovely," said Christine as she stopped and stood around the lobby.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡWfXhbMOebo
"It sure is," said Daniel, looking at the chandelier.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmBWeyjdsLr
"This place wasn't what it was back then," said G-Dragon as he looked up at the chandelier.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡggl9J7wQwX
"Mmm, I get what you mean," I said as I looked at him.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ08NtJSKInq
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5jxWysH53V
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoy3pEaecIS
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡO3C6B1AZrV
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGCvqbOR5rg
"GD?" Seungri asked as he rubbed his eyes. "Am I seeing right or are The Toxins standing right behind you?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3MEhAfHAHJ
"It's us Seungri," I said.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡo9yVu52MiE
Seungri shook his head and this time he was wide awake.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEighSgId67
"Oh! You're all here!" Seungri said with excitement. "I completely forgot that you're coming over today."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyS3juInU6J
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2p3SIjRSSM
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYlJxddszj6
"Zoey," Daniel looked at her with an eyebrow raised.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcbDTk686Yo
"Seungri gets invited anywhere, and at anytime," said G-Dragon.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡktMRDwpem2
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcdFeAcO6YE
"Whoa! Seungri, hold on!" I warned him as I almost tumbled forward while entering through the door. "Wow!"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuoaZYRjzT1
I was filled with awe when I looked around their so called "dorm."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE7qgMHbU1y
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡji5xtJJGTD
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZoGbDlXE8N
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGfxEkePxlR
"You guys are gamers?" I asked, looking at Seungri who still held my hand.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOovLcWN2jC
"When we're bored, yes," answered Seungri.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡv0kKUivoMY
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwphCWKvdyy
"Do I look like Collins to you?" I asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEE5L37aIls
"No, you don't," came Taeyang's voice. "If you did, you wouldn't be this attractive."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrJotmeBoMf
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7PxBfR4LcB
"Morning, Tae!" Zoey and Christine said at the same time as they both went to hug him.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0cPbkTj94B
"Hey, I'm glad you're all here," said Taeyang after the girls broke away from him. "You look pretty, Sam."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlRAXAF6LEq
"I wanted to say that," said Seungri as his eyebrows went up and down as he looked at me. "Especially the dress."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyAO4dgXNYU
"Really defines her as a Black Kitty alright," said G-Dragon as he came to stand on my other side. I suddenly felt awkward.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBoBGIL6Blv
"Are you cooking something, Tae?" Christine asked, gladly changing the subject.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdzxLoKB3mo
"I was fixing up a special brunch for you guys," said Taeyang.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTJAiVFBv2b
"Great!" said Mike. "I'm starving. I never had enough breakfast."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8dDrMfk9g0
"Where is Daesung and Choi?" Zoey asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGzlT6Nw81O
"Still in their rooms, I guess," said G-Dragon, as he looked down the hall.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjPv4c0C1sn
"Why don't you show these guys around, then?" Taeyang asked addressing G-Dragon and Seungri.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡppa1xz7uHm
"You guys can take the girls around," said Mike. "You'll find us here in the living room."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOdkTStXNXs
"I'll take Sam around then," said Seungri as he started to drag me down the hall since he still held my hand.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd8xdzJZPg9
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJW5phIb7dS
"You can take the others, I'll specifically take Sam around," said Seungri as he pulled me towards him.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFrJkCSWdzm
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtthaBwjq1p
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS1pAuKw7ni
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHEUQ4iAdRA
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ8DSI7Q7E6
"Ooooh, you better listen to the kitty," said Daniel as he winced. "You don't want to see her claws."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡns5YezRh8l
"Ya, she's a fighter when she wants to, just let her go," said Christine.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡis8WkTTEVv
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYKkk3Oeg1a
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq3Qvq7FU4O
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlrSdaJDfiq
"That was easy," I said as I looked at Taeyang. "Thanks, Tae. I would have handled them if they didn't listen."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb61h0wsnJ0
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡL48PhkTgWT
"Isn't anyone going to show us around then?" Zoey asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6mzfuDwCBq
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt6AQm7GTOn
Seungri and G-Dragon rolled their eyes obviously feeling annoyed like kids who didn't want to do as they were told.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwdIWEZfTTa
"Yes," they muttered dully at the same time.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMDSxL8JS0y
"They can show Zoey and Christine around," I said. "I'll get to go around later."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4KssUaGWDJ
"Great," said Taeyang. "Then you can help me with the food then."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoUzm1VKP14
"I'm delighted to." I smiled brightly at Taeyang.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjm2YJwTlBa
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW8MAnUY6fb
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYxFlulMHQB
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzimRCqk791
"Well, I try out a new few things now and then," said Taeyang as he smiled at me.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrSkdZZVNR7
"Then, I'm glad I joined you. This is going to be a lot of fun."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡVB1dBqsUde
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRHK2uV98AP
"Thanks." I quickly put on the apron. "So, what should I do first, Chef?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡb1wIUZUdoU
"Are you seriously calling me that?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGY1hfycdqV
"Do I look like I'm joking?" I looked at him.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡic6eZs8ORD
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEKAPODGi4h
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8353HiN0yz
"Yes," said Mike, I looked at him and his eyes were still fixed on the TV screen. "Sam makes the best omelette."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvPjUazuyi8
"Can't wait to taste it," said Taeyang as he drew out a pan from the closet underneath the counter next to the stove.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkRC1TY8QTx
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjqe8MRHv6h
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4XrvpBQfhK
"I wish I was there to see all that going on," said Taeyang.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfFTl3eDrL7
"You should have been there," I said. "It was funny how everything turned in our favour. The others ended up forgiving G-Dragon."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDWKBF8jgxE
"All except you of course."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRtUKztOB6X
"True. I want to forgive him but I just can't. I'm not mad but when I think about it, it hurts."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwjQpB1JfJ6
"I admit what he did was awful and I told him it wasn't a good idea."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMYa37H1EBT
"He confronted you about this?" I looked at Taeyang.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3JMQZUzOEk
"Yes," Taeyang shrugged his shoulders. "He is my best friend after all. He just made me swore not to tell you anything."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpMtKadFhKK
I rolled my eyes. "Typical."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq6S5PiGWSf
"If you ask me, I think it's a good thing you're not willing to forgive him just yet."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡjYE6YP1cQf
"Why do you say that?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7YPlK27Vyi
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡi96bGLYpJL
"I don't matter to him. He and I just like the rest of us here know music is what matters."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡebyn7AHfmM
"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?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2WYu19tVBs
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJWk8FQzGxM
A few minutes later just as I was taking the lasagna out of the stove with oven mittens, I felt someone standing right behind me. For a moment I thought it was Taeyang because I had left him arranging the food by the counter. I turned around with the hot pan the lasagna and I soon realised who had been standing behind me.

It was TOP. And he moved away just in time before I could burn him with the pan.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZ5cIdpl2Bt
"What are you doing?" I asked as put the pan on the counter. "You would've gotten burnt."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2fx8lzosqV
"I was trying to hug you from behind," said TOP as he smiled at me.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9PL6gR2wbO
"Well, that was a terrible idea," said Taeyang as he went over to the fridge to get the bowl of strawberries.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXi1AHYuH54
"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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5JSlas5FqH
"I missed you so much," he said. "I though the others were joking when they said you were in the kitchen helping out."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvvP3WaNSEz
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmxnb4u8hq1
"Nice, I can't wait to taste your cooking."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxo9TpPWig3
"Tae's done almost everything. We will be able to have brunch in a few minutes. Where's Daesung? I haven't seen him."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxG4A7t6H6l
"Don't know. He didn't come here?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSQTL6MISqu
"I was expecting him to."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9HSzCwOwza
"That's strange," said Taeyang. "Could it be that he might have snuck out of the apartment without us realising?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtlyfJ6eceQ
"Or, he could be right here with us playing video games," Daniel called out from the living room.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2o6gEHuIMs
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5sqPOsAnKh
"Yes!" Daesung punched the air. "I win!"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkttjxJl3qF
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡahQeEId72H
"I've played this game a lot more than you have," said Daesung. "I know every trick in the book."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ04IK2ry7Wy
"No doubt about that," said Daniel.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4tE7FPA1fx
"Aren't you even going to say hi or continue blabbering about your victory?" I asked as I approached the living room.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgtG72xWdXB
"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?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡgRt6zDkLna
"I'm fine." When we broke away from each other, I looked at him. "Why didn't you come by and say hi?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAPvtVeclMp
"I saw you were busy and didn't want to disturb the two of you."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhksFDIOdcG
"Where are the others?" Taeyang asked. "Food is almost ready."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZikA6x2zX0
"Really? I'm starving," said Daniel.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuNVjXGWY8h
"Me too," said TOP. "I haven't had breakfast."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡKmwYXB3Qip
"Whatever you stay up late for, only God knows," said Taeyang as he went back to the kitchen to finish up.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUXc5l0vGWV
"Can you let the others know they are needed here?" I asked Daesung.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj0w441aF8n
"Sure," he said as he went down the hall to look for the others.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSSOZIy5C0N
"Can we start without them?" Daniel as he came to stand next to me.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd9mNoDqcjl
"So you can have all the food to yourself?" I asked with my eyebrow raised. "No way. We eat together."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6Z6bY9fa5Y
"That wasn't such a bad idea, Daniel," said TOP as he winked at Daniel. "I was planning to have everything myself."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqfq5GIOTd0
"Boys always have a huge appetite," I said with a smile.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHEydBOIRWZ
I went back to helping Taeyang out with the food preparation while TOP joined my brothers in the living room.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMUNDWmmSXf
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPfMr1yQh45
"That was so funny," said Zoey, as she wiped he tears from her eyes. "I can't stop laughing.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrP2OoULxaA
"What's the joke about?" Mike asked.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFUtb47QZPB
"Nothing," Zoey answered. "You wouldn't get it."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnLkyrY6Bzq
"I surly hope it isn't about me," I whispered over to Taeyang from across the table. Taeyang almost burst out laughing.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTZsJNLmXVb
"What is it?" Zoey asked as she looked over at us in the dining area.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqAKcV1mWom
"Nothing," said Taeyang. "Food is ready."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡl6pJIUpE8C
"Ooh! Is that quiche?" Christine asked as she came over and looked at what was on the table. "My favourite."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3RgJrqcvFN
"And Taeyang made it," I said as I smiled at Christine.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2Lq4q7b7io
"Gosh, I can't wait to put that in my mouth." Christine settled down on the floor.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfhDKs91ZGf
"May everyone come and settle down, please?" I called out to the others as I stood up from the floor.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDNLNQdCuan
"Yum, yum, yum," said TOP as he came to settle down by the table with my two brothers.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNKPudnZrnb
"This is the first time I'm having my food on a low table before," said Mike. "Feels weird but exciting."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ82o2nHzHy7
"I must have left the strawberries in the kitchen," said Taeyang. "Can you go get them, Sam?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡCXHSyyUcnM
"Sure," I said.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0ycfRvmSUB
"And try not to eat them all," said Taeyang before I could turn towards the kitchen.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡeKaWrz0f3o
"Huh?" I blushed.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2QbZ7mMf3P
"Ya, she's a fan of strawberries," said Zoey as she sat next to Christine.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJGTtG279sC
"And she was eating them whenever she got to the fridge." Taeyang continued to look at me. "Don't think I didn't notice."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwn9fBVwxyN
"I couldn't help it," I said. "Sorry."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡS2T5rgPfzj
"Awww," said Seungri. "Her cheeks look so cute like strawberries themselves."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEb2Ptmsx07
"I'm going to hit you and knock your teeth out so that you can stop talking."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUDNrQqVsKg
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNG06qokBqQ
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEylb6ulA7H
In a few minutes when everyone was silent and enjoying their meal, Seungri said:
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1QqiR5hcvq
"This is so delicious. You two make the best chefs."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡhyD0aDsbZS
"Thanks," Taeyang and I said at the same time.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuAA1jAyyKL
"You should prepare dinner," said Daesung as he looked at me.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2o8FkSWf6j
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡERzRX1nxXS
"I remember," said Taeyang. "And this is the perfect day to do so."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡj4fWFLChtd
"Wait," said Daniel. "Does that mean we'll stay here the whole day?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzHMVAbkIg0
"If that's what's going to keep you guys hooked playing games all day, then yes," I answered.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGy5rCJ6x3a
"This is turning out to be the best day ever," said Mike with a smile.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4sHkUrfGQq
"It surly is," said G-Dragon. I still didn't look at him.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8YZbMy0e5f
"I'll also be joining your cooking class, Tae," said Christine.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqBY5U5EhAR
"Then we better call Collins and tell him we will be back a bit late," I said.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHlk3Zh7mmH
"We have to go grocery shopping too," said Taeyang.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡfr4tbzZRUz
"Christine, you and I can do that," I said as I poured some orange juice in my cup.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡMqd2gVEWIu
"I also want to go shopping too," said Zoey.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡY5AfOweX6E
"It's grocery shopping, not the usual shopping you love to do," said Christine.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ9jgvQnNIqA
"Don't worry," said G-Dragon. "You and I, Zoey, can do our own shopping."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡxsXKhWlSfv
"I don't think that's a good idea," I said.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8KM89gwfQr
"And why not? If you can do what you want, why can't we?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmAmVT4fQKJ
I looked at G-Dragon this time, being careful enough not to crush the glass I was holding in my hand.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyZaRfYMlPU
"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."
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ40C3FcH1hg
"I think some of us will pass," said TOP.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡduKwsTktyO
"Well, it's at your loss then," said G-Dragon. "Some of us are going to have fun. Right, Zoey?"
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmSSsnBJpD6
"Definitely," Zoey smiled at G-Dragon.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwiNyz2QsE6
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6F6z2ZHnLa
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAmyavoPJEn
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.
445Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡD9QnVh7om2
Once again, I'm really sorry from the delay.
