Dear diary

I'm speechless. It's been an awful and tiring day that I don't even know where to start. Johnny and I are sitting near the sunset at the moment on top of a mountain in the countryside. Confused? I know.

Remember I told you about Cherry valance, the redheaded girl I met at the movies with Johnny and Dally? Well, it has a lot to do with her. Johnny and I were running away (because of Darry) when we were surrounded by Socs. Don’t worry, weren’t out of our territory. The guy who we saw Cherry with after the movies came in with his mustang with a bunch of other Socs to chase us, just because we picked up thier girls.

After they corned us, they drowned me in the fountain, trying to kill me and harm Johnny.

Remember when Johnny was attacked by them before? Well, ever since that happened, he has carried a knife around with him. He...

Killed the Soc.

I know. It's a lot to take in. He killed the most important of them, Bob, cherry's boyfriend. He killed him for self defense, because he they were killing me. After Bob was killed the rest ran away. I know, were dead meat. That's why's we went to dally. He was with his friend, partying the night. He gave us 50 bucks and a gun and told us to come here, to this very church. And he we are.

I wonder if Sodapop even knows of I'm here. I wonder if dally even told them of the incident... Most probably not… Oh well…. I gotta go.

See ya!
