You Never Know How to Play a Game Until It's Really Played

"Steve hurry up I have a soccer game! I need a ride!" I screamed as I walked through the Curtis's door and plopped onto the couch. If Steve didn't hurry up than I would have to bum a ride with Two-Bit. Last time I did that I had to listen to his horrific singing of Kiss Me Quick by Elvis Presley.

Right on time the gang walked through the door. "Dally you really left that girl in her underwear and made her think you were comin' back but you really weren't?" Two-Bit rolled onto the floor laughing his head off. They looked up and saw me staring at them. "Hey guys." I said casually. "You hear anything?" Two-Bit tried to pull it off like I didn't hear what he just said.

"Stop treating me like I'm 10. Of coarse I heard what you said. Maybe if you weren't so loud I wouldn't have heard you."

"You need a ride to your game? Heard you're playing Connell." Two-Bit asked. On schedule Steve walked in. 'Need a ride' he said angrily and walked out of the door.

When we got in the car everyone was oddly quiet. I saw a boy walking down the street that was supposed to be my best friends date at the Nightly Double and I was supposed to go on a double date with his best friend. "Ahh so you're checking out boys now are ya?" Soda winked at me. "No that's Ella's boyfriend. We're going on a double date tonight." I replied." "So who's the lucky guy? Or the guy I'm gonna have to pound on if he hurts you." Steve always had to go and make things complicated.

"I don't know. It's Ella's boyfriends best friend. He's a Brumly boy and Ella's guy is apart of the Shepard gang. I think his name is Dean."

"Dean? Dean Haystings?" Steve asked almost shocked. "Most likely." The next thing I knew I was getting pushed forward because Steve stepped on the break hard.

"What the hell was that for!" I kind of yelled. "Watch your mouth, Caitlin." "Alright what the 'heck' was that for!" "I don't want you going out with Dean."

"Well I don't think that's your choice" I hissed at him.

"I'm your brother. I'm supposed to protect you. And I don't want you to going out with Dean he's a bad guy."

"You can't start playing the over protective brother now . Come one Steve you've never cared who I've dated before, so don't worry about it now." I got out of the car and walked onto the field.


We were tied 5-5 against Connell. Ella passed me the ball and I knew I had to score a goal. I dribbled around the defense and I shot at the goal. Ella was screaming 'SCORE' at me. I was up long enough to know I scored the goal, but than I was tripped by one of the Connell girls.

I had the wind knocked out of me. But I was only down for 2 seconds before I shot back up and charged for the girl. Ella pulled me back from my arms to keep me from attacking the girl. "Caitlin look, LOOK! It's not worth it, she's not worth it!"

I got my arms free from Ella's grip. Since the girl tripped me I got a free kickoff and a direct kick to the goal. I put my hand up to indicate that I was kicking, I kicked the ball, and it hit the girl who tripped me in the face and went into the goal.

"Oh my god! I can't believe you just did that Caitlin!" Ella seemed almost shocked liked she would expect something less from me. "If the girl wants to play a game, she'll have to play by my rules."

"Ms.Randle! Go apologize right now!" I walked over to the girl on Connell's team who was laying on the ground. "What's your name?" I demanded more than asked. "Joanne." Joanne was a preppy name for a Soc. Great I don't want charges pressed against me. "Do you need help up?" She stared at me in disbelief. "That would be nice" I looked at her in awe. She actually thought I would help her. "Go find someone who cares." I got up and walked off the field to the gang with Ella. "Man Caitlin you showed that girl." Johnny said admiringly. Ponyboy gave me a look that told me he was disappointed. The last thing I wanted for was one of the only people I care about to be disappointed in me.
