London harrumphed as she stared at the women around her.
“Y’all are crazy; you know that, don’t you?”
Sarah Mallery and Kendria Bonher shared a glance before
shrugging with false innocence then laughing even harder.
“I fail to see what’s so funny,” London griped.
“Do you ever take your head out of your comic books?” Sarah

London heaved a sigh. “Shameful.” She ate the last bite of

friends. “He’s retired, so, right now, he’s a father.”
