The Outsiders Reunited chpt.7
Took me a while to finally get to this since my computer crashed and everything I had on it was erased but I got it back somehow. Ok two different sides of the story of Booch and somebody running through the park. Please enjoy!
I heard footsteps following me so I tried to throw them off by picking up my speed and running through the park since it was dark out. But when I looked behind me to see if the person was following me they were gone. I then ran into something hard since I couldn't tell where I was going.
"AHHH!" I screamed girlishly falling on top of something which I believed was the person following me. I didn't really like how I was on top of him, and I could here a groan which made the person sound like a guy, and on top of all that his face was right next to mine! So I jumped up and tried to run but he grabbed my arm.
"Whoa Booch!" The person yelled at me, I was kinda shocked because it sounded a lot like…
"Johnny!" I yelled touching his cheek to make sure he had that scar he got from that soc Bob.
"Yeah?" He said and I pulled my hand back beginning to blush.
I couldn't believe for an injured person who got jumped then hit by a car could run that fast. But I'll catch up to her.
"Hope this works." I said to myself running through a short cut that would take me in front of Booch so I'll stop her in her tracks.
"AHHH!" Booch yelled really girly falling on me. It was a very odd position for us to be in.
"oww…" I mumbled but she didn't care, she got up and started to run again but I grabbed her arm. "Whoa Booch!" I yelled and then she turned to me.
"Johnny!?" She said to me and touched my cheek with the scar I got from Bob Sheldon. I was kinda embarrassed to say anything from the way she touched my cheek, yet it was gentle but she was shaking.
"Yeah?" I managed to say. She then pulled her hand back and turned from me. I realized she was probably blushing from touching my cheek and falling on me a couple seconds ago. Then I felt a couple rain drops on my shoulders. Aw great just what we need.
a near by tree cracks loudly and falls down
"Johnny did you hear that?" Booch said looking to see if it was a tree near us. Then I had a flashback of me, Ponyboy, and Booch when we were little kids. Booch lost her dog from a tree falling on her, it was a night just like tonight. Man we really digged that collie.
"Booch it's okay…just stay with me." I said grabbing her hand. She was shaking like crazy and her hands were cold. So I gave her my jean jacket to wear.
"Thanks Johnnycakes." She said walking next to me.
"Let's go back to Pony's." I said leading the way.
" 'kay" She said following me.
Booch and Johnny walked back to Ponyboy's house hoping, Darry had the fire going since they were so cold.
"How much longer till we get there?" I asked beginning to trip over my own feet, I couldn't see that well either so I almost hit the light pole. Thank god Johnny was guiding me, if he wasn't I would have a big purple bruise on my head. I was also hurtin' all over.
"Booch get on my back." Johnny said pointing to his back.
"Johnny…are you sure?" I asked, he nodded. So I got on hi back, I was surprised to notice he wasn't just skin and bones but he actually had muscles. Whoa Booch! What are you thinking?! He's just a friend…just a friend. It wasn't long till I fell asleep again.
