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. . .


10. Sydneys POV and a quick Authors Announcement


hey guys. So I just wanted to say some things real quick. Im sorry if its bothering you that Ponyboy is being so gushy and stuff. I get why it would bother. This story is just showing another side of him. He's older now so he's gonna be different. Thats all I wanted to say. 


Sydneys POV

I walked downstairs. I saw Jame in the kitchen with a ton of bags on the table. How did she get all this stuff. "Whoa how'd you get all this?!" "Thats what I wanted to talk to you about. I got a raise at work!" I was thrilled. "What?! How!?" "Since Ive always worked hard at the shop Al(her boss) is giving me a raise!" "This is great! But does he know?" She looked down. "Ya, thats why he gave me such a big raise. He's a real nice guy once you get to know him." I nodded. Greasers dont really get raises.

"Well this is really great but I need to go and.. Uhh.. Do my homework! Ya thats it!" "Alright."

As soon as I was out of her sight I ran up the stairs and into my room. I shut the door and walked over to my closet. I opened it. " You can come out now. My sister is down stairs. " Great. Im glad she didn't see me." I shrugged and walked over to my bed while Pony followed. I sat down and he sat next to me. "She's real nice once you get to know her." He shrugged .

We stopped talking. I looked into his eyes. I've known Pony for a while. I've never seen this side of him. His sweet, sensitive side.He slowly leaned in. Our faces were only centimeters apart when Jamie bursted in through the door. 

We pulled apart and jumped at Jamies entrance. "What the hell is he doing here!?" I was scared. I have seen her get angry before but never this bad. "Its Pony Jame! The guy who saved my life!" "I don't care who he is!", she said now looking to Ponyboy "Get out! Stay away from my sister!" "What are you doing why can't he stay?!" She was furious. "He's nothing but trouble. I don't care what he did for you. Get OUT!" Pony jumped when she screamed. "This isn't fair! He's the only friend I have now since YOU never told me Johnny was DEAD!" She was taken back a moment. "We didn't want to tell you. We thought you wouldn't be able to handle it!" I was angry. "SO YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BETTER NOT TO TELL ME THAT MY BEST FRIEND DIED?! IM DONE!" I screamed grabbing Pony and walking past Jamie and ran down stairs and through the door. 

We just ran until we reached the lot. I fell to my knees and cried. Pony held me while I cried. I wasn't crying because I was sad. I was crying because Jamie and Cara kept Johnnys death away from me. I was furious. The least they could've done was tell me, instead of me having to find out from his best friend. This made me realize. What other secrets were they keeping from me. What?! Are my parents still alive?  Did they fake the getting shot in a drive-by shooting? I couldn't believe them. Especially Cara. I thought she was my friend. How could they do this to me. 




So sorry it was a short chapter! Her parents mystery death was finally Published! Rough but Believable knowing about a greaser background.
