Notes: I got this request in my messages! It’s a multichap fic where they start off as best friends and fall in love :) I’m already working on Ch. 2, shouldn’t be much longer!
Being that it was the start of a new school year, Fiona encouraged all of her siblings to try and make new friends this year. Making friends had never really been a strong suit for the Gallagher family, mostly because of their psychotic nature, but it was always worth a shot.
Ian was sitting on the floor with crayons in his hand and a coloring book in his lap when the second grade class walked in. He waved to Lip, and then turned his head to see the boy next to him. He was a short boy with raven colored hair and sky blue eyes. The boy didn’t look to friendly, but Ian was still intrigued.
Mrs. Gunter, who was Ian’s teacher, called the second grade class down to give the first graders a bit of an orientation being that it was the first day of school. All the kids were rowdy though, so the teachers quieted them by making them sing the school alma mater. They started the song, but the teachers had to cut is short because a certain student wasn’t participating.
Mrs. Gunter and Ms. Rex made their way over to the little dark haired boy that Ian was previously looking at. His scowl became even colder as the teachers squatted down to his level. “Mikhailo—” Ms. Rex started, but the boy cut her off.
“It’s Mickey,” he spat as he crossed his arms.
