Billy Hargrove sits on the hood of his car. Legs crossed. A cigarette between his lips. Golden curls shining in the fucking sunlight framing a beaten to shit face and it’s fucking stupid how the bruises and the swelling and the fat lip don’t do much to dampen that glimmer that makes every chick in Hawkins cream their damn panties.
Steve thinks about just walking home. Abandoning his car. Someone can steal it, fine. It might even be worth the months of lectures from his dad.
“Fuck off.” Steve says. Spits it at him. Hopes it makes his hair go flat.
“Hello to you too.” Billy smiles. Blows smoke at Steve. Leans back on his arm because Steve’s car is his new hang and fuck Steve apparently.
“Not in the mood,” Steve tries to shoo him away, “so fuck the fuck off, please.”
“Shit.” Billy says. “Really gotta work on your sweet talk, Harrington. I’m no bored country girl about to succumb to your wiles. No wonder your girl dumped your ass.”
Steve knows it’s a bad idea to punch Billy in the parking lot of the school in front of half the student population and teachers. His face is a mess. He’s so goddamn tired. He doesn’t want to tempt Billy into driving him over with his camaro, which Steve wouldn’t put passed him. Still, Steve has been pushed so far already.
