"Can you please stop tapping your fingers and try to relax?" Taeyang asked. "When you look like that, you make me worry."copyright protection41ＰＥＮＡＮＡUhj4pwQbyw

"Sorry," I said as I lifted my fingers away from the dashboard of the car and leaned back in my seat, trying to relax.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ0sxjwXPm8o
"What's gotten into you?" Taeyang managed to look at me even when he had to focus on the road.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡTdKHwdqmo0
"You don't have a high fever, do you?" Christine who sat in the back seat asked. She leaned closer to place her hand on my forehead.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmdE1yZNltl
"No, no, I don't," I said as I waved her hand away and looked out the car window at God knows what.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBuN9Nj6DGf
"You look nervous and excited at the same time that I can't really tell the difference," said Taeyang. "Are you sure you're okay?"
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1zsLhZYImn
"Are you worried that Zoey and G-Dragon will get into some kind of trouble?" Christine also asked.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIJAnL8nzuQ
"No, I'm not thinking about that," I said as I looked up at the rearview mirror to look at Christine.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU5kHe81lLH
"Then what's wrong with you? Taeyang's right. You look nervous yet excited."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAMh2yy2xhp
"I don't know to be honest," I said as I scratched my head. "Do I look like a lunatic?"
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡU08unUDKt7
"If that how you're going to put it, then yes." Christine started to snicker.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBncW5r47MP
"No, you don't," said Taeyang as he threw a look at Christine.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡOmC6pbFsIW
"I don't know, I feel really anxious," I said.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRCW07jUK4n
"Are you sure you aren't worried about Zoey and G-Dragon?" Christine asked.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡSFL4BRwGYj
"Why do you keep insisting on that?" I had my eyebrow raised, staring at the rearview mirror.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwNF8T5jyx1
"Well, because you didn't want them to go out shopping, remember?"
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvpErpLKjvP
"Ya, I know. But that's the least of my worries. They can do whatever they want."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHnuss6kZMi
"Okay," said Christine as she leaned back in her seat. "I sure hope so."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡii6Yr03LzB
"I know so. I don't know why I feel like this. Like something's going to happen."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN40rvpcgJI
I continued to look out the window as I heard Christine at the back unfolding a piece of paper. She was obviously looking at the grocery list we had made.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ5q6zTzFdzs
"We're going to have a lovely supper tonight," said Christine. "Sam, did you manage to tell Collins that we won't be back early?"
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwRKCQbDTXc
"Oh, ya, I totally forgot," I said as I took my phone out of my pocket. "Thanks for reminding me, Christine."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvKgwbLWo2F
I called Collins and he wasn't picking up. I figured he might be busy so I left him a text message instead. I made sure to leave one for Lee too.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ776eHZNndm
"Just texted him, he isn't picking up," I said.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPJeAm4MZYJ
"As long as he doesn't get mad," said Taeyang.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡbuts0FeW3g
"Ha!" said Christine. "I just don't understand our managers sometimes. We always have to tell them we're here and we're there. It's like they have to keep tabs on us all the time."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBboHp5HctU
"That's just how it is, especially with you guys," said Taeyang.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzjDOT0TFZR
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡpblSDmySiB
We soon found ourselves in the parking lot of a grocery store and we got out of the car. When we entered the store, all eyes were on us as Christine got the shopping cart. Together with Taeyang we went around putting whatever was on the list in the shopping cart. I pretended not to notice the people around staring as they walked by.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8UNwBcCjp6
We were in the vegetable aisle and I was putting in carrots and lettuce in the cart when Taeyang told us to stay right where we were and that he would be right back. He walked down the aisle and disappeared round the corner.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡdZpRNjRGZR
"I can't wait to make kimchi," said Christine. "I have to admit, trying out something new is exciting."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyo3UhGgPzz
"Mmm, I can't wait too," I said as I got another packet of carrots and putting it in the cart. "Speaking of which, I think I'll need some strawberries."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡrHtee5qRoQ
"Really, Sam? What for?"
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡXBPntCGljG
"To eat of course."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡcS4fNmW3bv
"Once you start to eat them, you never stop."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDDd6Rrbiiz
"True. But at least that only lasts for a day."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ8gbXDFAk0U
"Typical." Christine rolled her eyes at me and her eyes landed to the other aisle further away from us where the fruits were.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ1cM6szspDE
"There they are," she said. "You can go get them and I'll wait here."
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUgh7n8zyrS

I walked over to the fruit stand surpassing large refrigerators that contained cold meat, fish and even frozen ice cream. I noticed all eyes on me as I walked by. Being a celebrity can really feel weird sometimes especially when the whole world knows you.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ19cNfEnH30
As I approached the fruit stand, I couldn't help but lick my lips as I saw the lovely juicy strawberries. I hope nobody saw me do that. That would be embarrassing.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmYhD6EMFdd
The strawberries were packed in plastic lunchboxes. Below where the strawberries were were oranges all stacked together. I felt like opening a lunchbox and eating a strawberry, but I had to keep my craving under control.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡylMHFkuFrC
As I stretched out to get the strawberries, someone appeared right beside me looking at the fruits. I didn't turn in the person's direction because I turned the other way to start heading back to where Christine stood waiting for me. As I turned, I knocked over an orange from the stand with my other free hand and it fell to the floor.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡEsMRg1vDJz
"Oh, goodness," I muttered as I turned to look at the orange.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡE5xVIDAujN
Just as I was about to bend over to pick the fruit up, the person beside me had also bent over to pick it. And then.....
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIS8vzOP4ug
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡH9Jt0ZuvDd
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4iiCe1gOwz
We'd bumped heads. And it hurt a lot. We both straightened up holding our heads.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBerKJ1zy53
As we stared at each other, I couldn't help but smile. I could tell he was smiling back at me even if he wore a face mask on. As I stared back at him, I couldn't help but feel like he seemed familiar.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡPNcygcyKIc
His blonde hair fell close to his beautiful eyes and I couldn't help but look at him and he couldn't stop looking back at me. I noticed his pupils dilate. He looked surprised to see me. Where have I seen those eyes before?
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYNuhpIiFxO
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡf82HTMIskO
I almost jumped in fright by the sound of Christine's voice. I turned to her direction and she was right where I had left her. Taeyang was standing right beside her and she beckoned with her hand telling me to come back.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡvaBIIRUhCD
I nodded my head at her telling her that I would be right there. I went back to looking at the person before me. I couldn't help but feel that I knew who the person was but I couldn't figure out who. I yearned to know because right now, my heart was racing. I felt so excited, yet so nervous. I had to know who this person is. If I walk away now, this moment will be burned in my memory and I would be haunted forever just at the thought of his beautiful eyes.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡtAqYSQHawe
I bent over to pick up the orange and I could tell his eyes still remained fixed on me. I felt like he was watching my every move. When I straightened up and put the orange back on the stand, I went back to looking at him.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZLm2sgObI9
"Mianhae (미안해) (Sorry)," I apologised, my eyes never leaving his.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZejAW1sRj4
I couldn't help it, I just had to know who he is. But I was running out of time. What was I going to do now?
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡuMFUKxKrIg
"Sam? Black Kitty? Right?" he asked.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFH22KviyG1
My heart skipped a beat. Even his voice sounded familiar and I felt like singing "Hallelujah!" out loud. For whatever reason, only God knows. Not only did he look surprised, he sounded surprised too. That voice. I just couldn't recall where I have heard it from.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡHFf1gb3I2m
"Yes," I said, trying to figure out what else to say next. "That's me. And...who might you be?"
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡNw8srT0ckI
He didn't hesitate to take his mask off and everything happened so suddenly. As he was removing his mask, a group of guys came round the corner entering the fruit aisle behind him. Everything then went in slow motion and as soon as the mask fell away from his face, I gasped.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡt0qv3a0mJG
Jimin stood right in front of me looking as surprised as ever and the rest of BTS had come around the corner behind him. When they saw me, they all paused. Now I was even more nervous and excited than ever before.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnrmDsCOvlR
"J....Jimin?" I looked behind him. "B...BTS?" Now I was the one who was asking.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡR8o0APTB2e
"Aigoo! Is that BK? Like 'The Black Kitty?'" RM asked with a surprised look on his face.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkvfL1jW2FF
Right now, I felt like I was about to faint. I had just bumped heads with Jimin and the rest of BTS just showed up out of the blue. I couldn't even think right at the moment. This was probably the weird yet best day of my life.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJ375GzIv53
I couldn't help my excitement as I tried to say something but I was completely lost for words. The rest of BTS couldn't say a word either as we all looked at each other wondering what to do or say next. This was a lot to take in.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnXbLXMBRnD
It was until a scream broke out and echoed throughout the store that we were woken up from our little shock. And it was pretty obvious who could be screaming like a crazy lunatic.
45Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ6I9mtaFpcl
"OMG! It's BTS!" Christine exclaimed.
