Chapter 1

I do not own the characters of Dirty Dancing. I made this story in a totally other context. Except for Johnny, his past and everything will stay the same, he's only having one extra thing and it's that he loves horse riding. The story isn't being held in the 60's, but it's in the 90's, 1994 to be exactly. The baseline of Dirty Dancing will be coming back in this story. That means that the dance and stuff mostly are going to be the same as in the movie.

Prologue:

I, Frances 'Baby' Houseman, am a girl of 22 years old today. Not that it is my birthday today, I got 22 a month ago. My parents and brother called me Baby and it didn't occur to me to mind. I was driving for work, not going to work but working in that great thing people call a truck.

Yes, I'm a truck driver and doing this for earning money. I know that the fact is that there aren't many women doing this for a living, but I just love to do it. I always have loved trucks anyway, so it wasn't a bad idea for choosing this job. I love to do this job I do now, driving trees back and forth. Easy done and easy money, my parents aren't rich and my brother can't walk. He's paralyzed after an accident he got when he was a child. So most of the money is spent in his carrying, I help them out, I love my parents to death and they're very proud of me.

I give them the half of my salary and still I can live almost like a rich girl, I save money too for my brother. The house we're living in is old, very old. My brother, Lewis, needs to stay downstairs because my parents can't lift him up the stairs anymore. So I save the money for him and my parents to buy a better place, a place that's making everything easier for them. Besides the thing I'm doing, I also love horse riding and dancing. I'm at home in the weekends, because I wanted to be with my family every weekend. And every Sunday I do horse riding, I don't have a horse of my own so I need to go to the riding school for riding. I would love to have a horse, but I know I can't take care of it with the job I'm doing now.

I was still single, not to mention I just had one boyfriend in my life. But it didn't mind me that much as I wasn't looking for a boyfriend anyway. Before I started to be a truck driver I was a dancer, well not being an instructor or some kind of that type. I did championships, had 4 times being in the first place. My partner I danced with was Peter Mooijweer, which also was my only boyfriend I ever had. Till I was 16 years old, I found out he was cheating on me and since that time I didn't dance anymore. My parents could understand, I always thought Peter and I were meant to be. My folks tried to get me back on dancing, because they know I love to do it and also it earns a lot. But I really didn't want to anymore, in fact I still love to see people dance but I hate to do it myself. So being unemployed for almost a year I decided that I wanted to do something I love to do and could help my family with too. And so I started to learn to be a truck driver.

At first it was difficult to get a job, especially for a woman. But for me I was lucky to bump into my boss when I was 18 years old. Well almost 19 years old. I was doing this kind of work for 3 years now and I still love to do it. Started with an old Mack, which I still have now and I still love to drive with very much.
