The Only Difference: an Outsiders Fanfiction

{02}A Glimpse into the Past pt.2, Seeing You Again

(Sodapop's POV)

Darry smiled at me as and Johnny looked at us confused. They had never meet Luna before. "Luna is a good friend of Darry's from high school, the last time she came to see us was a few months before our parents crash," I explained to our two confused friends. Pony smiled happily before speaking, "She's nice, I think the two of you will like her." The two males looked at Darry before Dallas spoke up. "Is this the girl you can never shut up about?" Dallas grinned as my brother got embarrassed. "So what if she is? She's sweet and she cares about Pony and Soda." Johnny was still confused but asking the next question. "Why have we not meet her yet? She sounds nice enough." Darry paused for a minute before carefully answering the question. "While Luna has never acted or dressed the part, she's still a soc. I didn't know if she would still want to talk to me."

I shook my head at my brother. "You should know Luna better than that Darry, she would never." Pony nodded his head in agreement as Darry sighed. "Okay I get it, I was wrong."

(Luna's POV)

I got in my car soon after the phone call. I was nervous. Very nervous. It had been a few months since Darry had even talked to me, let alone seen me. I was scared he didn't want me around anymore. I knew what my title as a soc brought along with it. I had heard rumors that the boys had gotten close to a group of greasers so I wouldn't blame them for keeping me at arm's length. I started my car and pulled out of my driveway, starting the drive to the Curtis household. What if he didn't want to ever see me again? I had liked Darry for a while, even before we got close, but would things change now? I drove down the street thinking to myself.

(Darry's POV)

I was sitting on the couch waiting with the boys when a car pulled into our driveway. I looked out and smiled recognizing the car immediately. She had the same blue chevy impala convertible as the last time I had seen her. She loved the car, so it's no surprise she still had it. She got out of her car slowly walking up to the door and knocking.

(Luna's POV)

I knocked on the door softly. I heard shuffling for a moment before the door opened revealing Darry. "Hey Darry, it's been a while since I've seen you." He rubbed the back of his head before moving from the doorway. "Yeah, I'm sorry I should have called, come on in." I smiled at him softly shaking my head as I walked into the house. "No it's fine Darry, I'm just glad you're okay. You had me worried for a while." He smiled before we were interrupted by someone wrapping an arm around my shoulder. "Hey, you're the chick Darry won't shut up about, Luna right?" I blushed to push his arm off of me. "Yes, and I certainly know who you are Dallas Winston. Still haven't learned to keep your hands to yourself I see?" He threw his hands up in surrender backing off. "Okay, I get it. I'll back off, Darry would probably kill me if I did anyway."

Dallas went back to sit beside a young boy that was maybe a little younger than Pony. I smiled at him and he smiled back before Pony ran to me and hugged me tightly. "Luna! Where have you been, you haven't come in forever!" The younger boy looked at me smiling. "I missed you!" I smiled at the younger boy hugging him back. "I know Pony, I'm sorry I didn't come by sooner to see you." He smiled letting me go pulling me to the couch. "I assume you already know about Dally, but this is Johnny." He smiled sitting beside the younger boy wrapping an arm around the boy's shoulder. "Hello Johnny, I'm Luna." I smiled at the younger boy holding out my hand for him to shake. He smiled grabbing my hand."I know as Dally said Darry just won't shut up about you. He was excited when he found out you were coming over."

I raised an eyebrow looking over at Darry who was blushing rubbing the back of his neck. I smiled and sat beside Pony on the couch. Pony smiled leaning back on the couch. "So Luna, got a boyfriend yet? I need to know how much longer I have to pester you about this." He grinned glancing over at his brother before turning back to me awaiting my answer. "No Pony, I don't have a boyfriend yet." I laughed at the boy's antics. He frowned before laughing at me.

~Time Skip~

It had been a few days since your visit with the boys. I was meant to go back in a few days to hang out with the whole group. I had met the other two of the boy's friends later that evening. But putting that all aside, you were doing something different today. I was meeting with an old friend who was a year younger than me. Her name is Ashtyn. Like me, she was a soc, but she hated conforming to the standards of the others. Ashtyn and I had been friends since childhood.

I parked the car at the diner we had agreed to meet at and walked inside Sitting across from her. She smiled at me. "Hey Ashtyn, how's your summer going?" She sighed shaking her head. "Same things I do every summer, I need a change of pace." I laughed at her smiling. "Well if you'd like you could come with me to meet Darry and his group of friends, I'm supposed to be going over in a few days." She smiled at me as our food came out." That actually sounds nice, and I already ordered your food, you always get the same thing anyway." She smiled at me and started to eat her food. "So other than Darry who you have told me all about, who else am I going to meet?" I smiled at her while I ate my food as well. "Other than Darry there are Ponyboy and Sodapop, who are his brothers, and their friends Dally Johnny steve and Keith." She looked up at me shocked. "Dally, as in Dallas Winston?" I nodded my head at her softly. "Yes, Dallas Winston is one of their friends, you still in?" She looked at me for a moment before nodding. "Yeah, sure I'm still in."
