Prompt 24: “I need tampons.”
The moment those three words escaped your lips all six boys stared at you, all with varying expressions on their faces.
“Tampons?” Sodapop asked quizzically. “Sweet heart, you don’t need any tampons, we have plenty of napkins in the pantry. Do you want me to go get you some?”
“Napkins?” You grunted impatiently as you stared at your big brother. “And what do you suppose using napkins will achieve Sodapop?”
“Uh…” He trailed off, looking at Steve for support, but he shook his head… there was no way he was getting involved in this one. He puts his hands up in surrender. “I suppose it’d stop the, y’know… flow?”
“You can say blood. And no, it won’t stop the “flow”, there is a crime scene in my undies.”
No one dared to say a word. Not even Darry who would usually scold you for saying something so vulgar.
You honestly weren’t meaning to be so bitchy, honestly, you weren’t… you had just had enough. You were fed up. All you wanted was your mother. But instead, you had to go through all of this by yourself. Darry was absolutely clueless… the day you got your first period, you thought he was going to have a heart attack. He had looked like a deer caught in headlights.
But the boys winced the moment you had made that comment.
“We can go get you tampons” Soda said softly, making eye contact with all the boys. “All of us, we will all go together.”
“Hey, Y/N… I can steal you some chocolate…” Two-Bit grinned, reaching out punch your arm softly. “What’ya say?”
“If I eat chocolate right now, I’m going to puke… to be honest, right now I really feel like I want to murder someone.” And boy was that the truth, your first victim would probably be Steve. “But I also really want soft pretzels.”
“We can get you those.” Johnny smiled at you, he looked a little worried to… you had been getting pains all day… excruciating pains. And he felt awful sorry for you.
“Okay, let’s wrap this up.” Steve said, walking straight out the door… you could tell he was glad to leave…
As all 6 boys walked out the door you heard Dally mutter to Ponyboy “I say we just get it over with and we kill her.”
