I once subjected my poor Mammy to the cold shoulder for a good hour after she…Ignis and Gladio are taking bets on exactly how far this goes.This is the story of how Prompto Argentum, poor part-time student, part-time barista, ends up landing one of Insomnia's hottest celebrities - without even realizing exactly who he's dating.And it started to go down hill so fast from there I thought I'd get motion sickness.
