Guys, I'm so sorry! How long has it been! You have the right to kill me for not updating in so long…but if you do kill me I won't ever be able to update again…take that into consideration…hehe

"Darry?" Soda said softly. Darry looked up for the first time since everyone had run out. "Dar, I ain't mad at you…if that counts for anything."

"Thanks, little buddy." Darry nodded. "What do you think we should do, Sodapop?"

"I…I dunno." Soda answered. "I mean I really don't wanna move. Pony doesn't, Onyx doesn't, hell, I know even you don't want to. We are doing okay…struggling, but we're living. We're as happy as we can be…under the circumstances. I'm not so sure moving is the right thing to do."

"I know…" Darry sighed.

"Baby, wake up." Dally was gently shaking Onyx awake. She had fallen asleep in his arms, feeling safe. She slowly moaned, waking up.

"Come on, I'm gonna take you home." Dally said.

"No….I don't wanna…"

"C'mon, babe. You know your brothers are worried." It was true. Neither Soda nor Darry were extremely worried. Knowing their sister well, they knew she had gone to Dally. But being the over-protective brothers they were, they were a little nervous about her.

"I hate Darry." Onyx simply stated.

"No, you don't." Dally tried to reason. "You love him. And what about Soda?" Onyx sighed and gave in.

"C'mon." Dally said gently. Onyx took his hand and they went out to Buck Merrill's car.

I know, I know! It's short and it sucks! I'm sorry!

Question: Does Dally seem OOC to you?

Thanks or reading, please review,
