Jonny’s mother came to see Jonny but Jonny refused to seeher. As Two-Bit and Pony leave, his mother blames it on them for what happened. Two-Bitt and Pony feelbad for Jonny that he has to live with that. Dally was recovering quite nicely in the hospital. He told themthat Tim Shepard had come to talk about the rumble. Dally asked Two-Bit for his black-handled switchblade and Two-Bit gave him it without even asking what he wanted it for. On the way back to Pony’s house, Two-bit and Ponyboy see Cherry in her corvette. She told them that Socs agreed to have no weapons during the rumble. Pony asked her if she would go see Jonny, but she wouldn’t because he killed Bob. She told him that Bob could be sweet sometimes and he was only violent when he got drunk. Pony called her a traitor, but forgives her quickly. Pony asked Cherry if she could see the sunset real goodfrom the West side. She told him you could and Pony told her that you could see it good from the East side too.Chapter 9It was almost 6:30 when Pony got home. He took 5 aspirins and could hardly eat his food. All the boys took a shower and got changed and spruced up for the fight. Pony feels that they shouldn't be there withthe other greasers. 22 Socs arrived to fight the 20 greasers. Darry was the greaser who was chosen to start the fight and Paul, Darry’s buddy from high school was the one to challenge him. Paul and Darry circled around each other. Dally yelled for everyone to hold up, which made Darry turn around to see what it was and Paul punched Darry, starting the fight. In the end, the greasers won the fight. After the
fight, Pony and Dally went to see Jonny at the hospital. A policeman stopped them because they were going too fast, but Pony faked an injury and the policeman escorted them to the hospital. When Pony and Dally arrived at the hospital, Jonny was dying. Jonny told them that fighting was useless, and told Pony to stay gold and died. Dally reached his breaking point and suddenly bolted out the door and down the hall.Chapter 10After Jonny died, Pony wandered around until a man asked him if he wanted a ride. The man asked Pony if he was alright and told him his head was bleeding. At home Pony found the rest of the gang in his Livingroom and told them Jonny died. He told them Dally had reached his breaking point. Just then Dally called saying he had just robbed a grocery store and the cops were after him. The gang ran to the lot where they saw dally running as hard as he could. Dally pulled out the unloaded gun he carries with him and the police shot him. Dally fell down dead. Pony got real dizzy and passed out. Pony woke up, he saw Darry had pulled the armchair next to him and was sleeping. Pony found out that he had gotten a concussion from getting kicked in the head during the rumble and that he had been delirious for 3 days.
