pony boy and johnny are talking about the fight with the socs.
johnny needs to kill soc to protect his friends. after the fight johnny attempts to save the children that were stuck in the church and doesnt make it out, and when johnny was trying to save the kids he gets badly injured
johnny believed his death was worth it, since the lives of the children he saved "are worth more than mine". he tells me to go on enjoying sunsets and not be so bugged about being a greaser
pony boy goes to see johnny at the hospital.
johnny doesn't make it, his injures were to bad and he passes away, pony boy is so heart broken, johhny was a very caring person and helped a lot of people, this didn't deserve to happen to poor johnny.
ponyboy becomes inspired at the thought of getting his story out of his head and onto paper. he ends up writing the story about the socs and greasers and about living with his brothers following the tragic death of the parents. the story ends up being a book, the outsiders.
