So he finally broke . So even Dally has a breaking point.
Dallas is gone. He ran out like the devil was after him. He's gonna blow up. He couldn't take it.
Whirling suddenly, he slammed back against the wall. His face contracted in agony, and sweat streamed down his face.
Ponyboy...you look sick. Sit down.
I'm okay. I don't want to sit down. Darry... don't touch me.
He suddenly bolted through the door and down the hall.
There was a stricken silence. Nobody had really realized how bad off Johnny had really been. Soda had made a funny noise and looked like he was going to start crying. Two-bit's eyes were closed and his teeth were clenched , and Ponyboy suddenly remembered Dally... Dally pounding on the wall.
Pony started shaking. Darry said something in a low voice to Soda. Pony's heart was pounding in slow thumps, throbbing at the side of his head, and he wondered if everyone else could hear it.
They all left the house at a dead run, even Steve, and Pony wondered vaguely why no one was doing somersaults off the steps this time. Things were sliding in and out of focus, and it seemed funny to Pony that he couldn't run in a straight line.
It was Dally. He phoned from a booth. He's, just robbed a grocery store and the cops are after him. We gotta hide him. He'll be at the lot in a minute.
The whole gang came to get Dally and try and hide him.
