“So,” Mandy starts. “You fuck anyone other than Kash lately?” Curiosity runs through her veins as she interrogates her best friend and fake boyfriend.
Ian laughs and bashfully looks down at the floor as they walk to their third period class. “Um, yeah, actually. You know that I haven’t fucked Kash in a while.”
“Pfft, I know. Thank God. That guy’s a fucking perv.” She sticks her tongue out in disgust. “So who is it?”
Ian lets out a sigh. “Can’t tell you.”
Mandy’s brows furrow as she looks at the redhead. “What do you mean you can’t tell me? You always tell me!”
Ian looks at her apologetically. “I know, but I really can’t this time, Mands. He’s really deep in the closet. You’ll find out one day,” he tries to smile. It sucks not being able to tell his best friend that he’s been hooking up with her brother, but he doesn’t want to risk his relationship.
“Fine. Whatever, asshole,” Mandy rolls her eyes as Ian chuckles while they enter the class.
What the two of them did not realize that there were three Southside thugs silently walking behind them, listening to every word that they said to each other. The group of thugs give each other the same knowing look that says Ian Gallagher has it coming to him.
