Note: So I heard this song and I thought I might do a story on it Hope you like it and don't forget to review
I do not own the song Leader of the Pack.
"Is she really going out with him?" Sheryl asked her twin sister Sylvia.
"Well there she is, let's ask her." Sylvia replied to her twin pointing over at Betty, "Betty is that Jimmy's ring you're wearing?
"Mhmm." Betty answered glancing down at the plain silver ring on her right hand.
"Gee, it must be great riding with him." Sheryl stated.
"Is he picking you up after school today?" Sylvia asked.
"Uh uh." Betty looked down again.
"By the way, where'd you meet him?" Sylvia asked eagerly.
"I met him at the candy store. He turned around and smiled at me." Betty said with a longing look in her eyes.
I made my way down to the candy store to get my little sister, Sheri, some Razzle's since it was her favourite sweet and she was sick with the flu. When I got down there I noticed a gang of bikers were hanging outside, I also noticed that they went to my school. I walked through them with my head down and into the shop without being bothered, I hoped that they would be gone by time I was done in the shop but they were still there when I opened the store door; they still didn't bother me as I walked through them but after I passed them I dropped the small paper bag with my sisters candy in and as I turned around to pick it up I saw a guy on the motorcycle turn around and smiled at me.
"You get the picture." Betty said with a faint smile.
"Yes we see." Both Sylvia and Sheryl said at the same time.
"That's why I fell for the leader of the pack."
I picked up the brown paper bag and hurried along the sidewalk, one smile and I fell for a guy I don't even know, a guy who lives on the wrong side of town, but what did that matter? Just because he was poorer than me didn't mean he was any lower than me; but my parents thought differently than me. To them a poor person was scum, 'They don't deserve to live' my father once said one time. Lost in thought I didn't notice that a bike pulled in front of me, I didn't even hear it. I stared at the guy on the bike, the same guy who smiled at me.
"Hey." He said giving me the same smile he did before. I stared at him, at that moment I couldn't find my voice. He laughed, he had such a sweet laugh; I know it was odd to say a biker had a sweet laugh but it was true. "You have a name?" He asked pulling a cigarette out of his leather jacket. He was wearing what the guys from around here usually wore, a white t-shirt, jeans, black boots and the black leather jacket. I looked down at what I was wearing; a light pink knee length skirt with a white button up shirt tucked in and flat white pumps. His hair was light brown and it looked like he had put grease in it, I wore my hair down in lose curls instead of its usual ponytail and I didn't have much make up on either.
"Betty." I said quietly but he heard me.
"Well Betty it's nice to meet you. I'm Jimmy."
"Nice to meet you too." I smiled at him, this made his smile grow.
"I'd like to take you out."
"Excuse me?" I laughed a little.
"I want to take you out. Just one date and if you don't have fun I will never bother you again."
"I don't even know you." I stated still smiling.
"Well then we need go out! I need to get know you more and you need to get know me more!" He said grinning like an idiot, "What'd you say?" I thought for a moment,
"Ok then. One date." I smiled wider.
"Well ok then, meet me here at 5 tomorrow?"
"Sure" I smiled and then headed home. After the night of the date we started seeing more of each other, and we started falling madly in love with each other. On the 4th date he gave me his ring, I couldn't have been any happier.
"My folks were always putting him down" Betty spoke sadly. "They said he came from the wrong side of town."
"What you mean when you say that he came from the wrong side of town?" Both Sylvia and Sheryl spoke together again.
"They told me he was bad, but I knew he was sad." She spoke a little louder, "That's why I fell for the leader of the pack."
"He is no good Betty!" My mother shouted at me one night when I brought Jimmy home, she wasn't bothered that he was only in the next room and could probably hear everything they were saying.
"He will amount to nothing in his life! Just like all the other scum on that side of town!" My farther shouted.
"That's not true! He's smart and he's sweet! He's treated me better than any boy on this side of town has!" I shouted at both of my parents and stormed into the next room to find Jimmy was gone. I ran out of the house to find him leaning against his motorcycle. He looked up at me as I approached him. "Hey."
"Hey." He said lighting a cigarette. I looked into his eyes and saw sadness, I instantly felt bad.
"Why'd you leave?"
"I couldn't take listening to your parents slagging me off anymore. I get enough of it from my own folks." He told me that his home life wasn't perfect but I never knew what his parents were actually like.
"I'm so sorry. You know that nothing they say is true, don't you!"
"I don't know Betty. It's just that I get told it so often that I'm starting believe it." He shook his head frowning.
"Don't you dare listen to what anyone says you hear? You are smart and the sweetest guy I have ever met." I smiled up at him but still saw the sadness in his eyes. "I will always love you no matter what." He smiled down at me and kissed me passionately, that's when I heard my farther calling me, I groaned. "Wait here ok?" He nodded in response and I ran up to my house.
"One day my dad said, 'Find someone new'. I had to tell my Jimmy we're through" She spoke with tears threatening to fall.
"What do you mean when you say you better go find somebody new?" Sylvia and Sheryl gasped.
"Betty, I don't want you seeing him anymore." My farther spoke with no emotion in his voice.
"Well tough because I'm seeing him if you like it or not!" I snapped at my father.
"You either call it off with that boy or I'm sending you to boarding school in Washington!" My father shouted and his face went as red as a tomato.
"But dad!" I screamed with tears in my eyes.
"Go now!" He pointed towards the door. I slowly walked outside with tears in my eyes.
"Betty what's wrong?" Jimmy asked as soon as he saw me.
"We can't see each other anymore." I said, more tears escaping my eyes.
"He stood there and asked me why, all I could do was cry." Tears slowly made their way down Bettys face as she whispered "I'm sorry I hurt you, the leader of the pack."
"What do you mean we can't see each other anymore? Why?" He asked desperately. I just cried.
"I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
"He sort of smiled and kissed me goodbye the tears were beginning to show as he drove away on that Rainey night"
Without saying anything he brought his face close to mine and kissed me as if saying goodbye and I saw his eyes start to water.
"I begged him to go slow, but whether he heard I'll never know."
"Jimmy slow down!" I shouted at him as he drove off as the rain came down hard and hit the skin that was bare like daggers. "Look out! Look out! Look out! Look out!"
"I felt so helpless, what could I do? Remembering all the things we'd been through"
I stood there feeling helpless thinking of something that I could do, all the things that we went through together ran through my mind all at once as I started to cry hard and scream.
"At school they all stop and stare, I can't hide the tears but I don't care, I'll never forget him, the leader of the pack"
I was still walking into school crying even though they all stopped and stared. His face still smiling in my mind, I would never forget him. The leader of the pack.
Gone, gone, gone, gone The leader of the pack, now he's gone Gone The leader of the pack, now he's gone Gone, gone, gone, gone The leader of the pack, now he's gone Gone The leader of the pack.
