Pony cannot believe Johnny killed Bob. He's scared and knows they must leave immediately.
You really killed him?!?! Johnny, I'm scared!
I killed him, I killed that boy.
Ponyboy and Johnny are heading home through the park when they hear a car horn. It comes from the blue Mustang, the one that picked up the girls. Five Socs get out and drunkenly approach Ponyboy and Johnny.
I killed a Soc. We need help.
Dry off and wear this shirt. Here's some money and a gun. Take the train to Jay Mountain, there's an abandoned church. I'll be there as soon as I'm clear.
They grab Ponyboy and dunk him in the fountain, holding him underwater so long he thinks he is drowning.
Moments later Ponyboy wakes up on the ground beside the fountain, coughing and shivering. Johnny is sitting beside him, big-eyed and pale. “I killed him,” Johnny says. “I killed that boy.” when Bob went down, all the other Socs ran.
Dally, the only one who knows about the incident, was found at Buck Merrill's place and helped Pony and Johnny.
He decides they should go to their friend Dally for money, a gun, and a plan. He finds dry clothes for Ponyboy, and he gives Johnny money and a gun. Dally give directions to a hide-out in an abandoned church in the small rural town of Windrixville.

It took them about forty-five minutes to get there. They climbed in a back window. It was a small church, real old and spooky and spider-webby. It gave them the creeps.
