page 4-6 Ponyboy was walking alone and got jumped by 5 socs. They wanted to kill Ponyboy so they grabbed a switchblade out of their pocket. Ponyboy was so scared, he wished that he would suffocate to death before they did anything to him. Ponyboy finally decided since there was nothing he could do since there was nothing to grab to defend himself; he started to scream for anyone to help him.
This is the part where Soda, Steve, and Ponyboy was walking but soon found Jhonny bruised up badly. Soon enough the whole gang came, Darry, Sodapop, Ponyboy, Dally, Steve, Two-bit. He was bleeding a lot and he was laying there crying.
Near the end of chapter 3, Ponyboy came home being late and Darry almost calling the police. If they called the police they would get seperated. Sodapop was asleep while Darry was reading the new paper. Darry started yelling at Ponyboy but when SodaPop tried to stop him; he got yelled at. That is when Ponyboy tries to stick up for Sodapop but Darry smacked on the face.
