I found a le+er from Johnny inside the book Gone With the Wind. Also, I chose the theme for my essay. I started wri;ng my essay and it starts out like this: “When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home...” That sounds like a great start! Keep working on it and if you do a great job, I’ll let you pass my class with a C! On my way to look for Sodapop. He ran away from home while @Darry and I were arguing. You two should really stop ﬁgh;ng. It’s stressing me out because I’m in the middle and I hate to chose sides. So please stop arguing, you two. Ok, Sodapop. Ponyboy and I will stop arguing, right Ponyboy? Yes, Soda, we will stop ﬁgh;ng and arguing. We’re happy now. Yay! My teacher told me to write a four page essay on a topic that I like since I’m failing his class right now. What should I talk about?Write about me Ponyboy! Write about me!
@Randy, I killed your friend Bob. It wasn’t Johnny. It was me. I killed him. No kid, it wasn’t you. I saw you drowning in the fountain. Your friend Johnny had the knife. I saw it.No, Randy. I had the switchblade. It was me. I can’t believe I’ve slept for four days. Also, I want to make it clear that Johnny is not dead. Johnny is not dead. Ponyboy, yes he is. Are you s;ll in the shock from you’re concussion?But he isn’t dead...OMG!! This can’t be true. We won the ramble against the Socs...but the thing is...@Johnny is...dead. He told me to stay gold. Stay gold... Then there was another tragedy... We lost @Dally. He died. OMG this can’t be happening. Two of my buddies...dead. :’( I’m so sad. I’m also sad. R.I.P both of y’all. We were on the newspaper for being a superhero! @Johnny and I saved the li+le children at the church in Windrixville. On the newspaper, it says, “Juvenile Delinquents Turn Heros”. It feels so good to be a hero!I’m glad we are on the new ar;cle for being good people. Tuﬀ enough. Btw, don’t forget to bring the book and the hair grease Ponyboy. I’m so scared. I’m scared that I might die. I can’t feel anything below the middle of my back. It’s so scary. I’m too young to die. I s;ll have things that I haven’t seen. What am I going to do? :’(
I’m so glad that Dally is OK! Although his arm is going to be scarred for life, the doctor said he was going to be alright! It’s Johnny that I’m really worried about. Right now he’s in a cri;cal condi;on. His back is broken and he has a third‐degree burn. If he survives, then he’s going to paralyzed from his waist and down. That’s only if. What am I gonna do without Johnny? :’(Ponyboy, don’t worry. Johnny is going to be alright. He ain’t gonna die. I really hope he’s doin’ aight.is at the hospital because @Johnny, @Dally, and I got burned in a ﬁre in Windrixville while we were rescuing the children. I’m ﬁne, I guess, and I hope the others are alright, too. I saw @Sodapop and @Darry at the hospital too. It was really nice to see Sodapop again. I can’t believe Darry was cryin! I’m so glad to see you again Ponyboy. I thought we lost you...like we lost mom and dad... I’m SO glad that you are back.Ponyboy! I hope you’re feeling alright! I was so worried and scared when you ran away. I felt like what Darry felt too! Don’t ever run away like that again! Sodapop wrote a le+er to me the other day. I don’t understand him. He can just inbox me on Facebook. Who sends le+ers these days? Oh thats right. I forgot. I blocked him. Haha :) We found out that @Cherry was our spy...Also, today, while @Dally, @Johnny, and I were ea;ng, Johnny had the most stupid idea that he came up with. He said that he’s going to go back to the town. Is he insane?I think Soda really misses you Ponyboy. But Johnny are you sure you want to go back? Yeah, like what I told you. I don’t think it’s fair for Ponyboy because he has to stay away from Sodapop because of what I did. I’ll give you back the gun and the money. Thanks for your help, Dally.
I’m so happy that Johnny got Gone With the Wind. I love that book! I think @Johnny is really enjoying that book. Poem of the day: “Nature’s ﬁrst green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a ﬂower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay.”That poem was exactly what I was talking about when we were looking outside. Ponyboy, you reminded me of all the colors of the clouds and other things. Thank you.Robert Frost wrote the poem. It means a lot, even more than what we think it means. is currently at Windrixville with @Johnny. I don’t really remember the journey because I was half asleep the whole ;me but we’re here! I’ve accomplished my dream! I’m in the countryside of the state! WOOHOO!! The church is on top of Jay Mountain. It’s so spooky that it’s giving me the creeps. I’m so sad because of my hair. I had to bleach it and cut it. But it’s my pride!! Ah... How I wish for a cigare+e. And @Johnny where are you?I’m at the store to get our food. Don’t worry Ponyboy.Oh, OK. You really scared me. I thought you just le_ me here.Why would I do that? Hold on. I’m heading back to the church right now!Johnny and I got some money from Dally and now we are oﬀ to a church in Windrixville to avoid the cops. People who see this, please don’t tell anyone where we’re going. Thank you.Boy don’t tell anyone what I got you. It’s gonna send me to jail. And make sure y’all stay inside or else others are going to spot you guys.Pony!! What if Sodapop or Dally see this status?! They are going to ﬁnd out where we are! Delete this! @Dally, thank you for your support.Don’t worry Johnny, I’ve blocked my bros. They ain’t gonna ﬁnd us.
I hate Darry. He is such a jerk. How can he slap me?! I’m currently with Johnny. I ran away from home because of Darry. I s;ll can’t believe that he hit me.>:( OMG!! Five Socs are walking towards us right now. Uh oh. D:Ponyboy...I s;ll can’t believe what I did to that Soc...I’m s;ll in a shock. But I’m glad you’re ﬁne, Ponyboy.Ponyboy I didn’t mean to hit you. Please come back. I’m so sorry. Come back home. You know that Darry didn’t mean it, Ponyboy. I know that Darry shouldn’t have slapped you but please come back home. Please Ponyboy, please...@Johnny, it’s alright. We can go somewhere else where no cops can ﬁnd us. @Darry...wow...Just one word for you...WOW. had a wonderful ;me at Nightly Double with @Dally and @Johnny. We met two Soc girls there too! @Cherry Valance and @Marcia.Ponyboy...I s;ll can’t believe what I did to that Soc...I’m s;ll in a shock. But I’m glad you’re ﬁne, Ponyboy.It was really nice to see you guys too! @Ponyboy, it’s so cool how we both like to look at the sunset! I also want you to believe me that not all Socs are mean and violent like those Socs that beat Johnny up.It is cool how we both like to watch the sunset! I’ve never had someone watch the sunset with me before.just got jumped by those stupid Socs on my way home from the movie theatre. I never thought that the Socs would just come out of nowhere! Ah! I’m bleeding like crazy and it hurts!! Good thing that I have my gang to help me! Thank you @Two‐bit, @Sodapop, and...@Darry.Ponyboy, you never think. Never. Not at home and anywhere else. How come yo think at school and receive good grades? You should start thinking more at home too.
You got a real nice cut and a bruise, Ponyboy. They make you look real tough. :)Hope you get be+er Ponyboy. You sure were bleeding a lot. Don’t be too sad about what Darry said. He don’t mean it all.
