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?


8. Chance To Be Something Better

Flaky returned home a couple hours after Lifty's altercation with his brother and was almost surprised to see Lifty was awake, as he was almost always napping all day or at the very least dozing off. But not today, as he was sitting up and muttering to himself, but when he saw she was in the room, he stopped and got up, "Hey, where've you been?".

"I h-had to go get some s-supplies", Flaky said

"For what?"

"Giggles is throwing a p-party for you, and s-she need me to get things"

Now Lifty was really confused, "What? Why?", as far as the thief knew, the pink-haired girl hated his guts. So why the hell was she of all people throwing him a party?

"I told her h-how much... .progress you were making, with being nice and everything, but she didn't believe me. So I told her to throw a party for y-you, and to invite all of our closest friends, to s-show how you've really changed", said Flaky, twirling a lock of her bright red hair nervously.

"And when is this party happening?", asked Lifty

"Friday night" 

Only two days away. That didn't leave much time to get everything ready, but it would have to do. 




Giggles came over shortly, carrying a long list in her hand, "Okay, you two, we only have two days to get Flaky's backyard in shape for the party. We need streamers, balloons, chairs, tables, lights, and a D.J."

Giggles looked at Flaky, "Flakes, you can get the D.J., tables, and lights, while I get the streamers, balloons, and chairs"

Lifty frowned, clearing his throat loudly to get her attention, "Um... .what the hell am I supposed to do?"

"Ugh, I forget you were here. Fine, if you really wanna help, you can set up the tables and chairs instead of having Flaky do it".

Lifty grumbled a couple curses, being annoyed he had to do such a boring task instead of something interesting, but nonetheless went over and started to set the tables and chairs.

While Lifty went to work setting up the seating areas, Flaky strung up the lights, which she had found in her basement, from one tree to the other and so on. Giggles tied balloons at various trees. After a couple hours of everything had been set up, and all that was left to do was find a D.J.

"Who could even be the D.J.?" asked Flaky

"Lumpy?" Giggles suggested, "I mean he already does every job in town, so why not?"

Lifty scoffed, rolling his eyes, "Are you kidding me? You want that idiot to be the D.J.?"

Giggles glared at Lifty, "I don't see any better options. So kindly shut up."

Lifty grumbled, "Whatever"

So after calling Lumpy and getting him the job, the three were sitting around, when Flaky suddenly jumped and squeaked, "O-oh, we forgot something!"

"What?" asked Giggles, who stood up

"It's the cake, a-at Pop's Bakery. W-we have to go get it before he sells it to someone else!"

"Okay, okay. Calm down, we'll drive over there right now." Giggles glanced at Lifty, "Can you stay here and watch things while we go get the cake?"

"Sure, whatever" mumbled Lifty, not really caring 

The two girls left in Flaky's car down to the bakery, while Lifty leaned back in a chair and started to doze off. It only seemed he shut his eyes for a split second when he heard someone walking up to him, he opened his eyes and shot up from his seat when he saw who it was.

Shifty. Holding a baseball bat in his hands.

"What the hell are you doing back here?!" growled Lifty, "I'm gonna punch your teeth in!"

He then charged at his brother, fist raised, but before the hit could connect, Shifty grabbed his sibling's hand and twisted it in a painful angle causing him to groan in pain, "Now, now. No violence, dear brother. I just want to tell you something."

"And what's that?" 

"I could hurt you physically, it would be pretty easy. But, no, no, no! I can hurt you way worse by not even touching you.

Lifty snorted in disinterested, "And how do you think you'll manage that?"

By destroying everything you care about. Like this little party"

Lifty's eyes went wide and he was nearly speechless, "No. Don't do this, you can't do this."

"I can't? I'm pretty sure I can. Just watch me."

Shifty swung the bat and it connected with the side of his brother's head, knocking him to the ground, dazed. Then Shifty went to work on the party decorations, smashing the tables, breaking the chairs in half, popping balloons, ripping down streamers and lights. He smashed the punch bowl, sending the red liquid everywhere.

He dropped the bat and walked off, calling back to his dazed brother, "After Flaky kicks you out, you're welcome to come back. Just... .remember whose in charge this time."

Lifty got up, his head pounding like a drum, and looked at the disaster his brother had caused, there was no way he could fix all this before the two girls came back. He heard a car pull up around the front of the house.

'No! They can't be home! Not yet!'

He was screwed.

That's when he heard five words. Words so full of sorrow, anger, and even uncertainty. He wished he could never have heard them. 

"L-Lifty, what have you done. . ."
