Ponyboy, Dally, and Johnny were all talking about Cherry stalking the boys. After hearing this, they were shocked- especially Johnny.
Johnny wanted to turn himself in for killing Bob while Dally and Ponyboy weren't so sure about it. They said that Ponyboy and Cherry can testify. Johnny thinks he might be let off easy because he only killed Bob for self defense.
the boys decide to go to the church and when they get there, they realise the church is on fire. Ponyboy then finds out that kids are missing so Johnny, Ponyboy, and Dally go out and try to save everyone- and they were not scared.
