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?


5. Unacceptable

"Where's my wallet?" said Flippy, who noticed during the car ride, that he was missing his wallet. Flippy's gaze landed on Lifty who was smiling wide and trying not to laugh at the soldier's anger. 

Lifty put on an innocent smile and said, "What? Me? Now, why would I do such a horrible thing as stealing a friend's wallet?"

"Give. Me. My. Wallet. Now." Flippy growled.

Lifty reached into his sweatpants pocket and produced Flippy's leather wallet, handing it back with a grin, "Here you are, sir"

Flippy didn't even open the wallet before saying, "And my money too."

The thief's smiled turned into an annoyed frown, pulling out the wad of bills from his other pocket and handing them back to Flippy, "You're no fun, you know that?" The rest of the car ride was quiet as they made their way back to Flippy's house to drop him off. The car came to a stop as they pulled into the home's driveway, Flippy turned and faced Flaky, "Thanks for inviting me, it"

Flaky smiled, "You're welcome."

Flippy then got out the car, muttering a "Fuck you", under his breath at Lifty, and then disappeared into his house. The car started up again and the other two made their way back to Flaky's house. As soon as they entered the house, Lifty flopped onto the couch, closing his eyes and stretching, "Soldier boy needs to learn to play nice, huh?". Flaky smiled at Lifty's new nickname for Flippy and said, "H-He just need to g-get to know y-you and we'll see how good you can be."

That's when the phone rang, making both of them jump. Flaky answered it.

It was Flippy and he was mad. Flaky went into the kitchen, closing the door, and talked to the angered man. Lifty got up and pressed his ear to the door to listen in on the conversation. At first, he heard Flaky's trembling voice, "F-Flippy, calm down p-please. . .".

Lifty couldn't hear what was said on the other line, but he sounded angry. When his voice raised, Lifty heard, "HE'S A THIEF, A NO-GOOD CROOK, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD BE SO STUPID TO LET HIM STAY AT YOUR HOUSE."

"D-Don't c-call me stupid" Flaky sounded on the verge of crying.

Flippy ignored her, "Until that scumbag is gone, I want nothing to do with you. I'm sorry, but this is for your own good.", Flippy then hung up.

Lifty rushed back to the couch as a Flaky burst from the kitchen, looking pale and tears welling up in her eyes. She looked at Lifty, who appeared to be watching television, "I'm g-gonna go to sleep now. Goodnight, Lifty". The redhead went to her room, slamming the door, and all went quiet, minus the crying that was heard. Anger boiled in Lifty, "This is Flippy's fault", he growled, getting up and exiting the house.

"Time to pay soldier boy a visit."
