Criminal Love

After yet another failed robbery, Shifty kicks Lifty out in anger, with nowhere to go, Lifty doesn't know what else to do, but can a certain red-haired girl change him for the better and show him there is more to life than stealing?


6. Alone

It took Lifty nearly an hour to walk to Flippy's house, but he was finally at the front door. Banging his fist on the door he yelled, "HEY FLIPPY, GET OUT HERE! WE NEED TO HAVE A TALK!".

Flippy opened the door, appearing tired and annoyed. "Lifty? Why the hell are you here?".

"I'm here because of what you said to Flaky." Lifty glared, "You called her stupid and told her you wanted nothing to do with her. How could you say all that? I thought you were her friend."

"I said all that to her because she needs to know she can't help everyone", Flippy glared at Lifty, "Especially people like you".

"People like me?"

"Yes, people who think they don't have to follow the laws, who always think they are the most important people on the planet."

"I'm not-!"

"Criminals. Crooks."

"Why I-!"


Lifty growled in anger, "That's I'm gonna-"

"You're gonna what? Kick my ass? You can try, but we both know what'll happen if you do. Flaky will see who you really are and'll have no one"

Lifty was angry but knew the war vet was right, so he flipped him and walked away. Walking away, he heard Flippy yell. 

"You'll never be anything, but a thief and a crook!"




It was dark by the time Lifty made it back to Flaky's house and flopped down on the couch, not realizing, until he did lay down, how tired he really was. So he closed his eyes and let sleep wash over and take him.




Two chapters in one day cause I was feeling nice today :)

This one is pretty short, but I'm going to be making these next couple chapters as long as I can.

Until then, hope you are enjoying this so far 


Love you guys,
