We Are More

Early October 1966
My name is Sydney Cade, I'm fourteen, and I'm a Greaser. I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma on the east side of town with my two older sisters'. Jamie the oldest, and she's twenty. She's the provider of the family, she graduated early and went to college for three years, but she had to come back to take care of me and Cara. She might be going back next semester, I aint quite sure because she don't tell me nothing. Then there's Cara, & she's 17. Then theres me, the youngest, Im in tenth grade. I skipped a few grades. I go to school with PonyBoy Curtis.And I had heard of his friends. I never thought I would actually talk, let alone become friends with him. . .

9. PonyBoy's POV

PonyBoys POV

    When the bell rang we both got up. Her eyes were still red and puffy. She stood and wiped her eyes. I grabbed her hand and started walking. I knew the pain she was feeling, the feeling of losing someone so close to you and trying to get it through your head that their not there anymore. When we separated to go to our classes I told her after school just wait for me outside. The last three periods went by, but very slowly. It was like the teachers were trying to make my life a living-hell. 
    As soon as the last bell rang I was up and rushing to the door I put my books away and ran outside looking around for Syd. I saw her sitting in the grass. As I approached her she looked up and smiled. Her eyes looked even more red and puffy than before. "What happened?" She didn't bother saying nothing. "I just ran into Greg again. Nothing that bad. He was just, you know, being a douche-bag." The last part made me chuckle. "Well I guess I get to beat him up again?" I was smirking now. She just rolled her eyes and grabbed my hand. " Ya ya ya do what you want and just walk me home. I'm really getting tired of this place." I agreed and starting walking. She leaned her head on my shoulder as we walked. 
    When we were walking we talked about the most random stuff. Before we knew it we were at Syd's house. We walked in and she directed me towards the couch. Her place was like mine, but with two stories. She sat down next to me and started talking. " I figured Jame (Jamies nickname) would be here by now but she's not. Cara left a note saying that she skipped school today and went to the gas station to hang out with Soda and Steve." 
    Wait her sister is hanging out with Soda and Steve? Seriously?!  " Sorry for asking but why would she be hanging out with Steve and Soda?" She laughed to herself. " Don't worry she doesn't like like Sodapop. She's always had a HUGE crush on Steve." She said emphasizing the word huge. "I don't know why though? He has a huge nose! " We bursted out in laughter. It was so true! It wasn't exactly huge but it was kinda big. 
    Once we stopped laughing we heard a truck pull into the driveway. It was Jamie. " Oh shit!" Without saying anything she grabbed my arm and pulled me up the stairs into her bedroom. We ran in and she locked the door. " Oh shit, oh shit, oh fricken shit!" "Okay what is going on! Why are you freaking out!" She sighed." I'm not supposed to have people over, ESPECIALLY boys. She had a cow when Alexa was over what is she going to say if she finds you here!" " What should I do?" " Um How about my…. Closet!?" She said as her finger pointed towards a small walk in closet. I Shrugged and walked in. "No peeping got it!" She ordered as she scolded me. I put my arms up defensively and said" Okay Okay! no peeping!" She giggled and smiled at me. " Syd! I'm Home! Come down stairs I wanna show you something!" She groaned and said " I'm coming!" I shut the closet door and crouched down waiting for Sydney to return. Hopefully without her sister.
