Ponyboy Pov

"Hey Ponyboy. Wake up." That was Sodapop.

"Just five more minutes," I said tiredly.

"Nope. You gotta get up now." I groaned.

"Don't make me tickle you."

"Fine," I said and opened my eyes. It was Saturday. I saw the clock, and it said 9:00 am. I really wish that I could sleep in longer.

"Morning, Pony."

"Hey, Sodapop."

"Time for breakfast!" Darry yelled from the kitchen. We walked in and sat at the table.

"Do we get chocolate cake?" Soda asked. Darry laughed.

"No, not this time. You have to eat something else at least once in a while." Sodapop grinned.

We sat there in silence for about two minutes when Soda asked, "So, how's it going with you and Christine?" Darry's girlfriend. Also known as my math teacher. It was very awkward for my brother to be dating Miss Melony. She doesn't even like me. I don't know what she has against me; she just simply doesn't like me. I even asked her one time and she just told me to be quiet. She was nice to everyone else.

"Oh, Darry…" Someone called in a sweet voice. Oh, no. Speak of the devil. I groaned. Darry went to the door to let her in.

They walked in here and Darry said, "Would you like some breakfast?"

"No thank you, I already ate," she said and glared at me.

"Nice to see you too," I muttered. After I finished my breakfast, I washed dishes with Sodapop, and I tried not to look glum.

I guess it wasn't working because Soda asked, "What's the matter?"

"Nothing," I lied. He just shrugged. When we were done, I walked to my room and tried to find a book to read, but I couldn't find one that I haven't already read. I got up and walked to the living room. I saw both of my brothers and my teacher sitting on the couch talking. I decided not to go in there. I didn't really feel like getting more glares from her. Then I heard a noise. I turned around and saw Steve.

"Hi, Ponyboy," he said and walked up behind Soda. "Hey, buddy."

"Oh, hey, Steve."

"You wanna hang out and play poker or something?"

"Okay." Sodapop and Steve walked out to the kitchen to play poker. I decided to just go in there and watch their game. At about 12:30 we had lunch. It was horrible. I'm not talking about the food. I mean that I did not have a good time. Darry and my teacher kept looking at each other longingly. I rolled my eyes and tried not to look at them. She finally left at about 3:00.

Then everything went back to normal. I knew that Darry was really happy, so I guess that I would try to tolerate his girlfriend.
