Johnny and Ponyboy got to a parking lot to watch the stars and whatnot. They both fall asleep. Johnny wakes up first and tells Ponyboy to go back home.
Stay gold Ponyboy... stay gold.
Once Pony gets back home, Sodapop doesn't care so much. Darry gets really angry and "accidentally" hits Pony. Pony then runs away with Johnny and gets dunked in a fountain. Because of this Johnny kills someone to protect Pony. They then run away.
Now I can get a good grade!
When Johnny and Pony run away, they go into an abandoned church. A cigarette was thought to have lit the fire. Some children then get trapped in the fire. Johnny, Pony, and Dally all saved them.
Johnny got injured from the fire and dies. Pony is sad, but doesn't cry. He later convinces himself that Johnny is not dead.
Pony has bad grades in school because he was gone for so long. His teacher says he can make it up by writing a story. He rights one about his life. It is called "The Outsiders".
Dally was being mean!
My favorite scene is when Johnny, Pony, and Cherry all sit together. I liked it when Johnny stood up to Dally. This showed that Johnny could stand up for what he thought was right.
