I believe you, Layla. But sometimes it’s one thing for people to tell you something continuously and then for you to believe it, you know?
Mhm. Either way I’m going to keep telling you until you do believe it. Something has to get through that thick skull of yours.
Ivan and Haldor made fun of me for at least six months. And…no, I guess not.
It’s Ivan and Haldor, what did you expect? Exactly. I would never lie to you about affairs of the heart. If my bullshit detector was going off with this kid, you’d know it by now. Trust me, Annie, he’s into you.
I’m sure we’ll find something for her soon enough.
If all else fails, she can be a stripper.
Yes, you have. Remember that time you told me that the only way to get gum out of my hair was by cutting it?
Okay, well that’s a different matter entirely, and let’s be real, your haircut turned out totally cute. Would I ever lie to you about a boy?
You keep saying that, Layla…
Because it’s true. Have I ever lied to you?
Yeah, they’d make life a living hell for him. I’m sure he has a good reason.
He’ll show up soon enough. That boy is smitten with you. Anyone with eyes could see that. Hell, I’m sure even Maria could tell.
If it makes her uncomfortable, then she shouldn’t have to deal with it. If you ask me, she’s a little too loyal to that job.
I certainly won’t disagree with you. We’ll just have to find her a new one.
Yeah… I’m not with it, Layla. They’re gross.
Well I’m sure he has a perfectly good explanation for it. Or at least he’d better, with our brothers to deal with.
As long as they can still hand over the dough, who cares?
Not when they’re teenagers that are only there so they can see me in a pair of legging. And um… He’s been…busy.
Well you know horny students pay the best. Is that code for he hasn’t been around in a while?
