Mistakes and Heartbreaks

Chapter 1

"Run, Steve, Run," Two-Bit shouted from outside.

Darry went to the window and shook his head as he saw Steve, Two-Bit and the next door girl Lizzy all wrestling in the snow. He went to the old white door and opened it, "Get in here before you freeze you three!" He yelled, soon after laughing when Steve tackled Lizzy into the snow. She let out a small scream since she didn't expect Steve to do that.

The three of them got up from the snow and made their way to the house. Steve bent down and grabbed a hand full of snow and threw it at Lizzy. She glared daggers at him. She was cold and just wanted to get warmed up.

"Enough Steve, please?" She asked him. He nodded in agreement, picked up some snow, winked at her and threw the snowball at the unsuspecting Two-Bit and tried to make his way inside quick like, thinking Two-Bit couldn't catch him.

Two-Bit turned and grabbed Steve by the arm and threw him into a snow bank and went to go inside.

"That's what you get for throwing a snowball at Two-Bit Mathews," Two-Bit joked as Steve grabbed him, pulled him into the snow bank. The two wrestled for a few minutes.

The three of them made their ways inside after the two boys were done fighting in the snow. Lizzy and Steve sat on the couch closest to the fire place to get warmed up, just as Soda came out of the bathroom and sat in the chair near by the couch. Steve glanced over as Lizzy tried to hide her yawn.

"Long night last night?" He asked, receiving a confused look from her.

"What do you mean, long night?" She asked, confused.

"Just that I saw Tim there late last night when I left here," he told her and she smiled a little.

"We're only friends, I called to talk to him and he said he needed to talk to me, so he came over and we stayed up talking in the living room," she replied.

"So, you're telling me that you invite a hood to your house to talk late at night and you two are only friends?" Steve asked her.

"What's wrong with that, Steve? I'm allowed to be friends with other people then- just you and this gang here?"

She asked then stopped, "Wait, are you jealous or something?"

"I'm not jealous of Tim Shepard," Steve replied.

"Steve, please, back off me, you're not my father, I can date whoever I want," she slipped with her blue eyes blazing.

"So then why did you lie to us?" Soda asked.

"Just the fact that I knew how everyone would react," she replied with a sad look.

"Shepard's a tough hood and has a rep and papers at the station longer then Dally's, just don't get yourself into anything you don't want to do," Darry told her, as he searched the closet for his coat.

"I know about his rep and all okay guys, I know that he dates Sylvia when she's not with Dally, I know he does drugs and goes to parties and all that, but honestly the reason I'm attracted to Tim is the simple fact that he does have a caring and nice side to him," She replied, as she put her red hair up in a ponytail.

"There's more to Shepard then meets the eye. Sorry to say but, the three of us have got to get to work," Darry said, as Soda sat on the couch and finished getting ready.

Steve grabbed his shoes and put them back on, glancing at Lizzy. He saw the upset look in her eyes.

"Liz, you okay?" He asked. She just nodded in reply.

"Yeah, just I'm not sure about anything anymore Steve," she replied to one of her best friends since grade school.

"What do you mean?" He questioned her.

"Honestly, I'm not sure if I'm really in love with Tim or not," she said.

"Follow your heart, is what my mom always tells me," he replied.

"So, Lizzy, what kind of job are you looking for?" Darry asked to change the topic since she told him yesterday that she was going job searching today.

"Anything that pays," she replied

"Hookers get paid," Two-Bit joked, earning a pillow thrown at him.

"Not even cool there, Two-Bit," Lizzy told him and chuckled when Steve and Darry both slapped Two-Bit upside the head.

"Ouch, hurtful there, Liz," Two-Bit said with a sad look. Liz just rolled her eyes.

"Well, I honestly should go and get some applications and fill them out then take them back," she replied with a sigh, as she put her shoes on.

"Good luck," all the guys told her as she left the house behind Darry.

"Thanks," She called back. She walked down the driveway and went to her house.

She went inside, grabbed her purse then went to her car and drove down town to search for a job.
