“No, no, you go, I just want to tell him to buzz off and then leave.” Mandy brushed her hair off of her forehead and sighed. “I just wish things like this didn’t happen to me…”
“It’s because of those amazingly lovely Green family genes,” explained Cy seriously, “we’re just too beautiful not to be stalked.”
Mandy snorted, thinking of Melinda, who was still just looking at Cy, who was still just looking at Beck, who was still just looking back.
At least they’re getting along…
