Ivey-Rose's POV

I've been out of the hospital for 3 days now but Darry has ordered me to stay home. Every day has been really boring, but I'm actually looking forward to today, I get to look after Rosie.

I sat on the couch, eating a bowl of cereal when Dally walked in with Rosie in his arms. I looked over at him and smiled.

"Hey." I said sitting up from my position on the couch.

"Hey." He said sitting down across from me. I can see he's become almost attached to Rosie over the time he's had her, and I know he wouldn't say it to any one, but he would rather stay with Rosie than go and get drunk every night.

He placed Rosie in his lap and looked over at me.

"I fed her just before I came here so she should be good until dinner." He said and then handed me Rosie, I placed her on my lap like Dally did. He smiled at me before standing back up.

"Bye" he said smiling at me.

"Bye." I said back smiling up at him from my place on the couch.

"Bye Rosie." He said giving her a kiss on the forehead. I smiled and Rosie giggled in reply. He then left, waving back at us before heading out the door.

Oh god, who is this person and what have they done to Dally?

I looked back down at Rosie and started bouncing her on my lap, she smiled and giggled again as she bounced, this sure is one happy baby.


I had just finished my lunch and I had decided I would take Rosie out somewhere, but where to? There's not many places to go in this town, most of which, she's to young for.

We could go to the park, but you never know what could happen there, and if something did happen, Dally would kill me in a heartbeat.

I decided that I would just take her out for a walk. I quickly gathered up her stuff and put it into an over shoulder bag, once I had done that, I grabbed my stuff and put it into the same bag and wrote a note, explaining to anyone that came home that I was out for a walk and should be back by 1:30.

I checked everything once more before picking up Rosie and leaving the house. I walked down the path, taking in the fresh air, I hadn't been outside in 3 days, it felt like my first time in a candy store.

I walked down the road, pushing Rosie along in her little stroller. I had no idea where I could end up, I'm just hoping that it's somewhere safe and I'll end up home in one piece.

I decided to walk into town and go and get some food, I noticed this morning that the boys had almost emptied out the kitchen. I made sure I had some money in my bag before I carried on walking down the street.

What could I cook for dinner? Darry usually cooks, but that's why I want to, plus I love cooking, I cooked nearly every night back home. Ah, stuff it, I'll decide when I actually cook later tonight.

I had been walking down the street in the middle of town when I saw a lady giving me a disgusted look, I decided just to ignore her like a smart person would. I walked straight past her, not making any eye contact with her at all.

I had just walked past her when I heard a rude comment come out of that hole in her face she calls a mouth.

"Young girls these days, I swear, if my daughter ever got pregnant at that age, I'd skin her alive." Her friend just laughed.

Excuse me, mrs Godzilla.

I stopped walking and turned to look at them and started walking towards them.

"What did you just say?" I asked holding my finger up.

"What a sassy little bitch, of course she's a teen mother."

"What did you just call me?" I asked glaring, putting my hands on my hips.

"You heard me, you little disrespectful creature." She said glaring back.

"Don't get your grandma undies in a twist, I have a right to be angry, you're the one who's being disrespectful."

"Shut up and go and feed your baby." She sad pointing at Rosie, who was just about asleep, hugging her little light purple teddy bear. I stepped in front of the stroller protectively.

"I'll have you know, I am 15 years old and actually have self respect, I am baby sitting for a friend, so before you open you massive mouth, next time, you should just think about what you're saying, and when you next judge someone, maybe you should just keep your piehole shut!" I said, raising my voice as I talked.

The lady looked looked at me absolutely stunned, but she was obviously the bitchy kind of lady so she had some witty comeback.

"Maybe, little missy, you should respect your elders." She said, pointing a finger at me threateningly.

"Why should I respect a judge bitch like you!?" I yelled, becoming furious.

"Because, little bitch, you need to learn a damn lesson!" She yelled at me, spitting in the process.

Jeez woman, say it don't spray it.

"Hey, hey, what are you doing yelling at her?" Came a familiar voice from behind me.

I turned around to see Sodapop. How did he get here? Wasn't he meant to be at to DX? I looked around and noticed we were almost right outside of the station, oh crap, he probably heard the whole argument.

"Teaching her a lesson in respect, this is none of your business, go away." The lady said, holding her head high, you could tell she was a big socy lady.

"It is actually, considering your yelling at my girlfriend, and swearing in my friends daughters face." He said, wrapping an arm around my waist.

The lady scoffed and walked away, with her poor friend in tow. I looked up at Soda and started to laugh.

"Oh god, did you see her nose hairs!?" I laughed, holding on to Soda so I didn't fall on ground with laughter. Soda started to laugh.

"You're something Ivey." He said once he calmed down. I smiled.

"I know, I'm human." I started to laugh again.

"Haha you're so funny." He said smiling.

"I know."

"How are you going to get home?" He asked with a half-serious face.

"I walked, I left a note saying I'd be home by 1:30 if anyone came home." I said, pushing Rosie back and forth.

"I know you did, I got a call from Steve, he was sick today with a stomach bug or something, he saw your note and waited for you, he called me 10 minutes ago, it's 2 o'clock." He said, looking over at Rosie.

"Shit, seriously?" I asked, my eyes widening.

"Yeah, I'll give you a ride home, you're just lucky he didn't call Dal." He said smiling and looking back over at me.

"Okay then, lets go before Dally gets home and kills someone." I said smiling at him.
