Falling in love with an outsider (The Outsiders Movella)

My whole life i've grown up as a Soc and i did things that Soc's did. I even made fun of a few Greasers to, but that all changed when i fell for a Greaser.


35. Dirty Cop

I sat up front with my uncle the whole way down. It was awkwardly silent. I was looking for my checkbook and he was focused on driving and jamming out to the radio. Carrie was sitting in the back crying to herself. They wouldn't let her sit with Soda in the other car.

I couldn't stand the silence anymore, "So, you said the bail set for their penalties is around $500 to $1000. How much would it cost to keep it off their records and for my parents not to know about any of this?"

He thought for a minute, "Since your family, I'll let you go for $250 and for their records to be mysteriously lost would cost $750."

"What are you guys talking about?"

I looked back to Carrie, "It's nothing Carrie, go back to crying." She leaned back and slowly wept. I turned to my uncle, "Only $1000? I've heard you've charged people triple that amount!"

"Well, you are my favorite niece and I really don't want to write out all of those criminal reports. And I may have lost another horse race. I really don't feel like taking out my own money or trying to get money out of your father."

"You are one dirty cop but the best uncle. Thank you so much!"

He nodded his head as we pulled into the police station. The two other cars pulled in behind us. Each police officer came out and took one of the boys. They were taken inside and into holding cells. Carrie was taken to the waiting room. I walked with my uncle to his office to figure out the bail.

Everyone of them were set at $750. With the five of them, it totaled to be $3750. Then with the $1000 to keep my uncle silent, it was a $4750 day. At least I still had over $3000 in my account for school. I would just have to get a loan.

"All right, Belle. They should be let loose in a few minutes."

And he was right. After four minutes, Pony, Soda, Darry, Two, and Dally all came into the waiting room. Carrie went over and kissed Soda for a minute solid. Pony came over and kissed me. Although it was passionate he seemed a little sad.

"You shouldn't have had used all your school money. I could never repay you!"

"I don't want to hear any of it! I did this because I wanted to. My uncle knows a good deal when he sees one. At least I got a family discount."

Pony looked confused, "What?"

"Nothing. Let's just go back to your place."
