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. . .

Sydney's POV

    "Hey sorry I was doing something." "Oh thats alright. I was a bit worried when you didn't answer though." I said starting to blush. Pony just gave a sly grin, handed over my books, and I put them in my bag. Then we started on our way to school. While we were walking hand-in-hand Pony used his other hand to pull out a cigarette. I never really new that Pony smoked. I thought he stopped because he ran in track. I don't know what came  over my put as Pony was about to put the cigarette in his mouth I let go of his grasp swatted the cigarette out of his reach. He looked at me with shock but before he started to freak out I broke him off. "Please don't smoke Pony! It could make you die, and you won't be able to get into track this year if you smoke. If you don't want to stop then fine, but please don't do it in front of me. I've already lost too many people this year I don't want to loose you too!" I could feel my tears beginning to reach the surface of my eyelids. PonyBoy now convinced that smoking makes me nervous, just took a deep breath and hugged me. Not the reaction I expected. "Alright, if it makes you uncomfortable I'll stop  doing it around you." I just nodded along. 

    Pony looked down at his watch and it was already 7:55! We both immediately looked each other in the eyes and starting sprinting to the school. It was actually kinda of fun and exciting. We were both laughing. Weird right? We got to school just in time. We got up the stirs and into the school and stopped to catch our breath. 'Well, That was fun." Pony said laughing. I smiled and nodded still catching my breath.

     We walked over to our lockers and Pony stood next to me and waited so I could get my locker open. After I got all of my stuff Pony and I shared our morning schedules. He has History,Science, then Creative Writing. I have Science, Literature then Creative Writing. "Well I'll see you at Creative Writing then?" He asked for my acceptance."Yeah, and we can eat lunch together if you want." "Sure, see you then." Before he left he kissed me on the cheek and walked to class. Thats when my Best friend Alexa Hanson walked up to me, half-grinning half-laughing at me. " I told you he liked you!" "Oh Shut Up!" She started to laugh at me, so I just started walking to class and she just followed me because we have Science and Literature together. 

    During the first two periods me and Alexa just kept passing notes back and forth. After the bell I went out to my locker and was getting my creative writing  notebook. As I shut my locker I found Pony leaning on the locker next to mine. I jumped a little and hit him playfully in the arm."Oh My God! Don't do that! That fricken Scared me! We were about to go into C.W. but I felt someone grab onto my arm. and pulled me towards them. It was Greg Erickson, my Ex. Boyfriend, A soc an don't judge me okay! I thought he was different but I was wrong. "Let go of me!" I said trying to break his grasp. "No, I don't have to take orders from a greaser!" He tried to kiss me but I took hold of his arms turned him around so they were crossed and dead-legged him to the ground. "Don't ever touch me!" Thats when Ponyboy joined us and stood in front of me. "Look I'm her boyfriend now so beat it!" Pony was furious but it was also very attractive. Greg then stood up and started darting towards PonyBoy to hit him but Pony uppercutted him, which made him flip over onto his back again. I think Pony made his point. After that Pony took my hand in his and we walked to C.W. "Thanks." I said trying to make eye contact with him. "No problem but , please tell me that all of your exes aren't complete Assholes". We both laughed and walked into C.W. awaiting our next conflict this morning. Amelia Formont.
