Darry and Soda come to visit Pony. Pony and Soda are so happy to see each other. "...Soda had me in a bear hug and was swinging me around. I was so happy to see him."
Darry is really sad, he thinks Pony isn't happy to see him. he's crying. "suddenly I realized, horrified, that Darry was crying. he didn't make a sound but tears were running down his cheeks"
Pony is actually happy to see him. he realizes that Darry Does love him. "that was a silent fear then- of losing another person he loved. I remembered how close he and dad had been, how could i have ever though him hard and unfeeling"
