That Night

That Night

That Night

That night it all went down

The beating

The running

The chasing

The smoking

The stabbing

The killing

That night...

Johnny and I were left on the run

My oh My that sunset

That night it all began

Of course, I vow to never put peroxide in my Greaser Hair again


Then the fire

The Dairy Queen

The BBQ Sandwich

The little kids

The rescue


My feet followed their screams

And Johnny...

He died that night because of me.

All because I was an idiot

The last thing he said to me...

The thing I’ll never forget...

Gold, Ponyboy...”

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...
