Preference #2: He Asks You Out

Two-Bit:  You were working another weekend shift at Al’s Diner.  You really enjoyed your job because of the 24/7 rock-n-roll music, the roller skates, and of course the many different people you got to meet.  You were waiting in the back making milkshakes when your friend and co-worker Betty popped her head in the doorway.  “Y/N, Loverboy and his two friends are at table three.  He asked for you specifically. Again.”  You laughed and shook your head.  About three weeks ago, you served him and his friends and every time you skated by, he did something to get your attention.  It could be a joke, a wave, blowing kisses, hell he’s even done animal impressions.  And it never fails that he makes you laugh.  You grabbed your milkshakes and dropped them off at your table, then skated around to Two’s table.  You decided that since it was slow right now, you’d take a little time to tease Two-Bit.  You skated up to their booth, coming from behind Two.  You plopped yourself right next to him making him jump, then laugh.  He wrapped an arm around you and leaned back in the seat, “Honey you must be a broom, cause you just swept me off my feet!”  You couldn’t help but throw your head back and laugh while his two friends rolled their eyes.  You gingerly move his hand and stand up, “So boys, what can I get you today? The usual?”

They all nod their heads and you make your way back to the kitchen.  “Hey Y/N!”  you turn around to see Two grinning, he dramatically blows you a kiss and you play along and catch it.  You turn around in the kitchen doorway and blow a kiss back to him.  He jumps up in the seat and flails his arms around to catch it and makes enough noise for everyone in the diner to look at him.  You can’t help but laugh at what a goof he is.  When their order is finally ready you come back and put it on the table.  “You boys need anything else?” you asked sweetly.  One of Two’s friends, the tan one spoke up, “Maybe some napkins.  He keeps drooling every time you go by.”  All four of you laughed, and once Two finally stopped laughing he agreed. “He’s right.  I can’t help it.”  You blushed and gave him a stack of napkins, causing everyone to erupt into laughter again.  You left to take care of your other customers, and came back when they were finished.  The two younger boys were chuckling and for the first time ever, Two-Bit was quiet.  You looked at him suspiciously when he started to get up from the table.  He stood in front of you for a second before getting down on one knee.  He then pulled out the paper napkin ring from behind his back and looked at you.  “Y/N, I have liked you since I met you.  You’re beautiful, and funny, and know how to make a great milkshake.  All great qualities that I look for in a woman.”  You laughed along with his friends before he pouted. “Hey!  I’m trying to be romantic here.  Now where was I?  Oh yeah!  I love coming in here to see your face, but I’d really love to see you other places too.  So, Y/N, will you go on a date with me?”  You immediately burst into laughter while nodding your head.  The handful of people in the diner chuckled and clapped, while Two’s friends both wolf-whistled.  Two-Bit jumped up and spun you around before he kissed you on the cheek. 

“So how does Friday at the drive-in sound?”

Preference #2:  He Asks You Out

Ponyboy:  You had been in Tulsa for a few months now, and you had finally found a small group of friends and you were involved in some school clubs.  You were in your room finishing up your homework so you could go out with two of your friends.  Just as you put down your pencil, your mother called up to you, “Y/N your friends are here!”  You slipped on your shoes and hurried out the door.  You looked at Maggie and Amber, “So what are we doing?” 

Amber grinned at you, “We’re going shopping downtown!”  You didn’t really feel like shopping, but you loved your friends’ company so you went anyways.  The three of you chatted and looked around in the new dress shop in town.  After Maggie bought a pretty yellow dress, you decided to leave and walk to another shop down the street.  You and Maggie were talking when Amber elbowed your hard in the side.  “Ow!  What was that for?”  She grinned devilishly at you and waved to a boy across the street.  You immediately realized it was your friend Ponyboy and you blushed at him and waved as well.  He smiled when he saw you and ran across the street to see you.  Amber and Maggie both knew about the little crush you had developed on Pony and always told you how cute you would be together.  Amber smiled at him, “Hey Ponyboy!  What are you up to?”

“I was just going to the movies.  What are you girls up to?”

“We were shopping, but we’re done now.  Are you going to the theater all by yourself?”

Pony’s ears turned red and he looked down at his shoes, “Well, yeah.  I don’t mind though.  At least it’s quiet.” 

“You sound just like Y/N!  She always shushes us in the movies!  I have an idea!  Why don’t you two go together?!”  She smiles enthusiastically as Pony and you simultaneously turn crimson.  You start to stutter out, “You don’t have to Pony.  If you want to go alone and-“

“Actually, I’d like you to come.  If you don’t feel like it though you don’t have to.”

 You smiled at him.  “Well I’d like to go if you really don’t mind.”

“Of course not!  Let’s go.  See you later girls.”  He waved at your friends before turning to you smiling, then walking towards the theater.  You looked behind your shoulders to see Maggie giving you two thumbs up and Amber making a big heart with her hands.  You rolled your eyes and talked started talking to Pony.


“That was awesome!  I loved the part where he jumps off the train and onto the horse!  What was your favorite part?”  Pony looked at you eagerly.  You loved talking to Pony, especially about movies.  Nobody seemed to appreciate them the same way you did until you met him.

“I know!  My favorite part was when he swung from the chandelier and grabbed the map off the table.  I was so sure he was finished!”  You continued intensely discussing the movie as Ponyboy walked you home.  You were about a block away when Pony started talking again after he got his breath back from the latest joke you made.  “Ya know, I had a really great time tonight Y/N.”

You smiled warmly at him, “Me too.  This was really fun.”

“Would you want to do it again this weekend?  We could go to the diner and then catch a movie after.”

You couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear.  “I’d love that.”

You had reached your porch and turned to face Pony.  He looked at you happily, “So I’ll pick you up at six this Saturday?”

Your surge of joy gave you a boost of confidence that lifted you up on your toes to give Pony a quick peck on the cheek.  “That sounds great.  See you then.”  As soon as you got inside you ran up to your room to call Amber and Maggie.

Preference #2: He Asks You Out


After your late night escapade with Sally, you went home feeling quite proud of yourself. However, your mother came in to apologize not long after you went to bed, only to find you gone.  After a long lecture, it was decided that you’d be grounded for a month; hence why you took the long way home from school that Friday. You relished in the outdoors, already dreading being locked inside for the next few weeks.  You kicked stones and sauntered along in your black romper and red lipstick.  You were walking through the park when you heard footsteps running towards you.  You turned around only to feel a hand come over your mouth and an arm drag you down behind a bush.  Before you could think to start throwing elbows you looked to see none other than Dallas Winston holding you down.  You didn’t even have time to question the situation before more footsteps came pounding along.  You peered through the bush to see two of the Shepard outfit looking around angrily.  

“Where the hell did he go?”

“I think he went that way!” said the bigger one pointing across from where you and Dallas were hidden in the bush.  They took off and after they were completely out of sight, Dallas removed his hand from your mouth and stood up, brushing the dirt off of his jeans.  Angry and confused, you jumped to your feet only coming up to his shoulder.  

“What the hell was that about?”

“Jesus baby, a ‘thank you’ would be nice since I just saved your ass.”

You stared at him incredulously, “Oh I’m sorry!  Thank you Dallas, for gagging me with your hand and shoving me behind a shrub!  How incredibly chivalrous of you!” you fumed.

Dally smirked and took a step closer, clicking his tongue, “Still a wild girl, I dig that.” He pulled out a cig, lit it, and took a drag.  You took the cigarette right out of his hand and took a long drag, breathing the smoke into his face gingerly.  “Sweetheart, please.  You couldn’t handle me.”  You boasted, batting your eyelashes temptingly.

He licked his lips and took another step so that you two were just barely touching.  He craned his neck so his mouth was right by your ear and leaned in, “We can see about that”.  He kissed the sweet spot behind your ear but you determinedly retained your composure. “Babe, you couldn’t even handle a movie with me.”

You heard him swallow before his voice dropped to a husky whisper, “Tonight at eight; you, me, right here.  We’ll go see somethin’ at the Dingo, got it?” he leaned in and planted a slightly harsher kiss a little lower on your neck.  

“Mhmm.” You hummed back. You pushed him away playfully and grinned at him before turning on your heels and swaying your hips as you walked home to plan for tonight.
