I just moved to Tulsa cause my mom got a job offer that gives more money.
After being here for a week my mom has started to try and convince me to go out and make new friends. That obviously hasn't been a success so she's decided to send me on errands in the hopes I'll bump into someone and start talking to them.
"Honey!" My mom yells at me from the kitchen.
"What?" I yell from my spot on the couch.
"Will you go down to the DX and get me some cigarettes?" She asked with a mischievous smile.
I sighed in response, not really wanting to go, but I knew I had no choice. "I guess." I stood from my seat and grabbing my wallet.
The DX was about a 10 minute walk so it didn't take too long to get there.
I entered the small gas station to see a group of teenage boys huddled around the counter, seemingly harassing the employees.
The only thing I could really distinguish was the contagious laughter of one of the boys.
"C'mon y'all gotta move. We got a customer!" One of the employees lectured the group. This put all of their attention on me as they slowly shuffled out of the way.
"Sorry bout that," said the employee. He had movie star looks and was one of the most attractive boys I've ever seen.
"It's fine," I smiled, "I just need a pack of cigarettes please. Whatever brand is fine."
He turned to grab a pack and I glanced over to the boys again. One of them.was staring at me with a wide grin, he had rusty sideburns and wore a Mickey Mouse shirt.
"Here ya go," I turned back around and paid for the cigarettes. "You new here? I haven't see you around before."
"Thanks." I said, "And yeah, I'm new."
"Well you shouldn't be walkin' around alone." I heard the guy in the mouse shirt say.
I furrowed my eyebrows. "How come?"
"You don't wanna get jumped by socs." I don't know what socs are but they don't sound like good news. He said, "If you want I can walk you home?"
"Are you sure?" I asked, "I don't wanna be any trouble."
"Yeah, it ain't no problem at all," he smiled, "I'm Two-Bit by the way." He said
"Well thank you. And I'm (y/n)." I said with a smile.
Two-Bit was absolutely hilarious and really cute. I guess Tulsa isn't that bad after all.
