"Sophie, get up I have to go to work!" my older brother Darry yelled. I moaned and opened my eyes. I was immediately happy once I noticed how sunny it was today. I smiled and got out of bed. It was Saturday, my favorite day of the week. I went to my closet and pulled out a chocolate brown thick strap tank top and white sweats that I had cut off the bottom so that they stopped about mid-shin. I went to the bathroom and brushed my wheat blonde hair and some mascara on my eyelashes that were on top of my brown eyes. Then I skipped out of the bathroom and jumped on the couch beside my younger brother Ponyboy.

"Good morning Ponyboy!" I said cheerfully. He looked at me like I was out of my mind then smiled.

"Good morning" Just then my twin brother Sodapop came out of the shower with just a towel on. I passed him his DX shirt and jeans.

"How do you always know were my stuff is Sophie?"

"Call it twin's instinct" he laughed and went to his and Pony's room to change. Steve and Two-Bit came in the door, closely followed by Johnny and Dally. Dally walked to the kitchen right away and grabbed a piece of chocolate cake.

"Hey Dally sweetie can you grab me one too?" I asked.

"No" he answered.

"Why not?" I said as if I was offended

"Cause you called my sweetie" I crossed my arms. But then I got up and went to get one myself. Dally was the only one in the gang that I wouldn't manipulate, except for Steve, but he would do anything for me, I was his best friends twin.

"Does someone want to go with me and Steve to the Dingo tonight? There's a big party" Soda said.

They all answered "no" with different reasons, Darry had to work, Pony and Johnny were gonna stay in, Two-Bit was going to get drunk, and Dally was doing "something" I wasn't even going to ask.

"I will" I answered. Soda smiled and nodded as Steve and Darry pushed him out the door. Ponyboy and Johnny walked out as they said they were going for a walk. Two-Bit and Dally went to get Cokes. I chose to stay home cause I was going out tonight. I went to my room and got my drawing pad. I love to draw it's my very favourite thing to do in the world; I'm not that bad either. I turned to a clean page and got to work. I had decided to draw a man, my dream guy. I had just started, not knowing what it would turn out as. I had started with the neck, firm and powerful. I was so caught up in my art that when I checked the clock it read 4:00 which meant that Darry, Soda and Steve would be home any minute. I sighed and put my pad away in my room and went back to the living room and turned on the T.V. No body knew about my passion for drawing except Soda. It was my secret passion. One by one the gang started piling into the house.

"So whatcha do all day sis?" Soda asked as we both went to the kitchen to make supper, it was our turn.


"Start anything new?" I knew what he meant. He was asking about my art.

"Yes, but you know the rules you can't see it until it's done" he sighed and nodded. I tell Soda everything, he's my twin. I always show him my finished work; he always says that I will be famous someday. I wish I could believe him but I don't think I'm that good.

After supper I started getting ready to go to the Dingo. I heard that this was going to be one heck of a party. I had never been a girl that cared too much for her appearance, but I still cared enough to look good. An hour later I had a red low V neck silk tank top and a jean skirt. I had curled my hair and put some make-up on. I walked out and Soda and Two-Bit immediately whistled.

"Two-Bit, decided to come?" I asked.

"Yeah" was all he answered.

We arrived at the Dingo and it was full of people. Two-Bit had already set off looking for blondes. Soda and Steve went to pick up some girls so that left me alone. I looked around and noticed my best friend Danielle coming towards me.

"Hey didn't know you would be here" she said

"Yeah well I came with Soda, Steve and Two-Bit but as you can see they ditched." She laughed. Danielle was a lot like me only a bit quieter. She had dark brown hair and beautiful green eyes.

"Well you know there are some pretty hot guys around here" she had that look in her eyes, I know what your thinking but we just wanted some company for the evening and only for the evening not the whole night. I nodded and we walked over to 2 guys and started talking. They didn't get it. A half an hour later we were sitting in a booth all alone. Just then a man with black hair and intense blue eyes came over to us. I looked at Danielle she smiled.

"Hey ladies" I thought wow this guy called us ladies not chicks, he's a real gentleman we both said hi and Danielle asked him if he wanted to join us. He sat down and we started talking. Danielle excused her self to go to the washroom and left this guy and me alone.

"So what's your name?" he asked.

"Sophie" I answered.

"I like that name" he said. I smiled. I really liked this guy.

"Why don't you come to my car I want to show you something" I wasn't thinking so I got up and followed him to his car. We walked over to this beat up Ford.

"So what did you want to show me?" I asked. He grabbed me and shoved me into the car. I struggled but he had me down in a second. He was trying to rip off my clothes. I pushed on him and hit him and did everything to try to get away. He was kissing me and I bit him. I was so scared. Just then I heard yelling the guy whipped around I got up and saw Soda, Steve and Two-Bit running towards me closely followed by Danielle. Soda got there first and slugged the guy right in the jaw. Steve grabbed me by the shoulder and pulled me out of the car, then ran to help Soda. The guys were beating him up bad. I sat on the ground shaking as Danielle tried to comfort me.

"Its ok Sophie he's not going to hurt you anymore" I looked over as Two-Bit gave him one more punch and he fell to the ground unconscious. Soda ran over and put a protective arm around me.

"Sophie, are you ok?" I burst out crying onto his shirt. After a while I took a quivering breath and relaxed a little. Danielle was explaining everything to Soda and the guys. I just sat there scared stiff. Steve took his jacket and put it over me. I couldn't talk so I looked up at him and attempted to smile.

"I'm surprised I didn't kill that guy" said Two-Bit. Soda was sitting on the ground with a worried expression on his face. I finally felt relaxed.

"Thanks guys. He really scared me" Danielle hugged me really tight. I smiled a real one. I was so glad I had people like them in my life.

"Hey what's goin' on?" I turned around to see Dally standing there.

"That guy hurt Sophie" said Steve. He was also crouching beside me. Dally swore.

"Hey guys, can we go home?" I asked. Soda laughed and nodded.

"I'll come see you tomorrow" said Danielle. I nodded as Soda helped me up and we walked home.

When we got home I went and immediately went for a shower. Soda was telling Darry and Ponyboy what happened. All the rest of the guys went home. I got out of the shower and put my pajamas on. I walked out into the living room and my brothers looked up at me. Ponyboy looked scared of me.

"You guys, I'm ok" I said.

"Are you sure?" asked Darry.

"Yeah just a little…shaken" Darry didn't look convinced.

"Go to bed Sophie" I nodded and smiled. That sounded good. I went to my room and got into bed. I put my head on the pillow and attempted to sleep. I could hear my brothers getting into bed. I rolled over and went to sleep.
