summary: you decide to pay your boyfriend a visit while he’s at work
word count: 504 ____
For some reason, you had felt bored all day long. You’re not sure if it’s because of the summer heat or that your boyfriend went to work and left you to stay home in all of your lonesome. Whatever the reason truly was, you knew you were bored out of your mind and you needed something to do.
Since it’s so hot outside, why not head to they DX and buy a drink? You’d also get to see your boyfriend. Perfect idea.
You grabbed your money, slipped on your shoes, and headed out the door. Luckily the DX wasn’t too far away, but the hot weather made it seem like a lot longer of a walk. You slowly made your way until the DX sign started to appear. As you walked up to the store, you had noticed Sodapop was outside.
“Soda!” You shout. He turns in your direction, a smile on his face.
“Oh, hey y/n!” He smiled. “What brings ya here?”
“I thought I’d come get a drink, and I guess I’d visit Steve too.” You giggle.
“He’ll be glad to see ya. He’s inside, I think he’s ringing up a customer.”
“Alright, thanks Soda.” You say, making your way inside the store. As you open the door, a bell dings, signaling your arrival. You find Steve standing at the counter, reading some random newspaper. He looks up, making eye contact with you.
“Babe!” He says, standing up straight. “What’re ya doing here?” He rounds the counter coming over to you, giving you a hug and a quick peck on the lips. He grabs your hand and leads you back towards the counter.
“I came to buy a drink.” You said. “Soda said you were in here ringing up a customer?” He laughs.
“Oh, no, it’s too hot out there, I just said that so I could get a break.”
“Of course ya did.” You say back, not surprised by his actions.
“Well, what drink do ya want? I’ll buy it for ya.”
“Oh um,” You think. “I’ll get a coke, please.”
“Alright.” Steve says grabbing you a bottle of coke and ringing it up for you. He grabs it and pops off the cap, handing to you.
“Thank you.” You hum.
“Anything for you.” Steve says. The bell on the door suddenly rings, interrupting you and Steve.
“What’s taking you so damn long in here?” Soda says.
“Sorry, I was ringing up y/n.” Steve says, motioning towards you.
“Well hurry up! I want my turn in the store too!” You grab your coke before Steve walks you towards the door.
“Welp, duty calls.” He says, a smile on his face. You laugh at him.
“Then I guess I better let you be.”
“Alright.” He says walking towards you and giving you a gentle kiss. “How ‘bout tonight we go to the drive in?”
“Sounds perfect.” You say. You wave a finally goodbye before walking back home. You were going to sit in boredom once again, until Steve gets off of work.

summary: johnny can’t help but feel jealous when you talk to ponyboy
word count: 534
Your boyfriend, Johnny, had asked you to join him and Ponyboy to the drive in to watch the latest movie. Of course you had said yes.
The three of you made your way to the drive in, and found a row of open seats. You were situated in between Johnny and Pony. You had all been laughing and making jokes, well more like you and Ponyboy. You had notice Johnny had gotten quieter and quieter after every joke.
“’m gonna go get some popcorn.” Johnny finally spoke.
“Okay!” You said, finished laughing with Ponyboy. “Could you please get me a coke?”
“S-Sure, be right back.” You and Pony continue chatting as Johnny gets up and goes to the concession stand. While waiting in line, Johnny couldn’t help but watch you and his best friend laugh. He didn’t think it was fair. You were his s/o. He was the one who was suppose to make you laugh, not Ponyboy.
Johnny came back with the popcorn and your requested coke. You noticed he had a scowl on his face, but decided to ignore it, something probably had happened at the concession stand. The three of you ate your snacks and finished the movie. Afterwards, you and Johnny walked Ponyboy back home. During the walk Johnny was dead silent, just like he had been the whole night.
“Johnny,” You finally spoke, following Johnny out of the Curtis’ front gate. “Is everything alright? You’ve been real quiet the whole night.” You and Johnny slowly come to a stop in the street.
“W-What’d ya mean?” Johnny said turning towards you, not looking you in the eye.
“You’ve hardly said anything tonight. You seemed sort of, I don’t know, distant.”
“Johnny,” You said in a hushed tone. “I-If you’ve got something to say to me, I hope you’d say it. I really don’t like when you keep things like this from me.” The night was quiet, all that was heard were the crickets and the rustle of the summer wind in the trees. Johnny was being silent again.
Johnny lifted his head, making eye contact with you. “I-I guess,” he said, putting his hands in his pockets. “You and Pony had been talkin’ the whole night, and I just didn’t have much to say...”
“What are you sayin’? We had just been talkin’.” You were confused. What was Johnny’s real reason for being so quiet?
“Well, I just didn’t like how you were talking with P-Pony. He was sure making you laugh a lot a-and I felt like I couldn’t even get a word in with you.” Johnny finished, a blush heating up his cheeks. He looked away from your gaze.
“Johnny.” You said, getting his attention. “Were you jealous of Ponyboy?” A smirk accompanying your lips.
“U-Uh.” He said, rubbing the back of his neck. “I-I guess I was.”
You smiled. “Love, there is no need for you to be jealous of Ponyboy. I’m you’re s/o, not his.” You said, pulling Johnny into a loving hug.
“You’re right.” He said, finding it funny how he had felt.
“I wish you had spoken up tonight. Ponyboy sure does talk a lot.” You said, making the both of you laugh.

“We’re here.” Darry says as he pulls the car in front of his house. You and Darry had just recently began dating, and he felt it was the right time for you to meet his brothers. To say you were nervous was an understatement. You knew how important Darry’s little brothers were to him, so you wanted to make sure you guys started off on the right foot.
You let out a breath you were holding in. Darry instantly reaches for your hand, giving it a light squeeze. "Baby,” Darry says reassuringly “It’s gonna to be alright. I sure do you love you, so I know they will too.”
“A-Alright. Let’s go in then.” You gave Darry a big smile. He exited his side of the car and walked around to you, opening up your door. He took your hand and lead you through the front gate up to the front door. Darry opened the door and you saw a young boy sitting on the couch reading a book.
“Hey, Pony.” The young boy looked up upon hearing his name. “Where’s Soda?” The young boy glanced at you, giving you a sweet smile.
“Uh, I think he’s in the kitchen.”
“Soda! Come out here!” Darry called. A handsome looking boy, a little older than the other, came out of the kitchen.
“Oh! Hello!” He says. “You must be y/n!” He comes over and gives you a big hug. “I’m Sodapop, over there is Ponyboy.” Ponyboy gives you a little wave, a light blush accompanying his cheeks.
“It’s so nice to finally meet you. Darry talks so much about you both.”
“Gee, does he talk about us as much as he tells us about you?” Soda says, earning a smack on the back of his head from Darry. You Laugh.
You sure could get use to being part of this family.
