Hey, sorry I took so long, this story just really isn't going anywhere…

I decided to just go home, because Soda seemed to concentrating more on his "baby sister" than his work.

"Soda, I'm gonna go home, now." I told him.

"No, you ain't."

"What? How come?" I asked bewildered.

"Ya really think I'm gonna let you walk home?" I shook my head.

"I guess not." I agreed. "But I don't wanna stay here."

"I know." Soda said "Just wait 'till lunch and Steve and Two-bit will be by and one o' them'll take you." I nodded, looking at my watch. Half an hour.

The half hour passed by relatively fast and as if on cue, Two-bit's car, and Buck Merril's T-bird which Dally was driving pulled into the DX. Dal, Two-bit, Steve and Pony got out.

"You all right?" Steve asked coming up to me. I nodded; he smiled at me and went into the garage to talk to Soda. I sighed and sat down.

"Bored?" Dally asked sitting next to me.

"Yeah." I agreed. "I wanted to go home but Soda wouldn't let me."

"Damn straight, he wouldn't let you." He said "It ain't safe and you know it." I nodded.

"C'mon." He said. "I'll take you." I nodded.

"Thanks. Be right back." I went to the garage.

"Soda, Dal's gonna take me home." I told him. He nodded.

"Okay, be careful." I nodded said bye to him and Steve, went back out said bye to Pony and Two-bit and Dally and I got into Merril's T-bird. We got to the house and both of us got out.

"You staying?" I asked. He nodded.

"Yeah, don't feel like goin' back to school. I only went today 'cause I was bored." I nodded and we went inside. Dally went into the kitchen to get some food as I sat on the couch. It started to rain and I went into my room just to watch the rain. It was my favorite kind. Dark, but with no thunder or lightning. I don't know why, but I just loved it. I just sat there, lost in the beauty. I jumped, feeling a hand on my shoulder.

"Didn't mean to scare you." Dally said. I nodded and he sat next to me.

"Watcha 'doin?" He asked.

"Nothing. Just admiring the rain." Dal looked at me as if I had grown an extra head. I shrugged, kind of embarrassed. Dally shook his head and watched the rain with me.

"I don't get it." Dally shook his head. I just shrugged.

"Shiena? What are you doing here!" I turned my head to see my oldest brother standing in the doorway, his face a mixture of anger and worry.

"I'm fine." I said. That got rid of the worry.

"Then what the hell are you doing here! You should be in school!"

"I couldn't take everyone making fun of me so I went to the DX and then I came here." A slight glimmer of worry returned to his face, but the anger doubled.

"Wait, you walked!" I shook my head.

"No. Steve drove me to the DX and Dal, here." I jerked my head towards Dal. Darry nodded.

"You shouldn't be skipping school!" He said. I hung my head. Darry sighed. It was obvious he could tell I was really bothered and I wouldn't have skipped otherwise.

"We'll talk about that later." I nodded.

"Why are you here early?" I asked him.

"I can't roof houses while it rains." I nodded and went back to watching the rain.
