Leo did not like being laughed at but because she was a girl and everything he couldn’t really yell at her, so he took a deep breath and counted to five like his mom was always telling him to. The pounding of his chest didn’t subside but his anger was downgraded to minor irritability. “Do you only eat organic caviar or something?” he said before grabbing a fistful of chips and shoving them into his mouth munching slowly, his cheeks puffing out unflattering.
