We were just having a picnic when the fire started!
Johnny tells Dally that he is going to turn himself in. Dally is as shocked as a person who has just won the lottery. He can't belive what he is hearing. He found it unfathomable while Pony was not surprised.
As Dally, Johnny and Pony are driving back, they see a fire. They park on top of the hill and Johnny and Pony run down to ask the man standing in front of the church what was happening. They soon discover that there are kids inside.
Are they okay? Where are they?
Johnny and Ponyboy run in the church to find the kids and save them. This is my fault. I started the fire, is all Pony could think as he ran in the church. He felt as if it was all his fault that these kids could lose their life because of him. They find the kids in the back andstart throwing them out of the window to get outside the church.
The church ceiling starts to collapse on top of Pony and Johnny. Johnny realizes that he isn't going to make. Panicking and hurrying, Johnny shoves Pony out of the window. A thick and heavy log falls on Johnny and hits him in the back. When Pony lands on the ground Dally smacks him in his back and everything goes dark.
When Pony woke up, he was in an ambulance. All Pony could think was, is Johnny okay, where's Dally? Apparently, Dally had hastily ran back into the church to save Johnny but passed out before he got to the window.
Jerry Wood comes over to Pony and tells him that there are people here claiming to be his brothers. When Pony goes over to the door, he is over the moon. Soda runs up to him and gets him in a bear hug. Then Pony talks to Darry and learns that he does really care about him.
