It is also not healthy for the seventh man to carry guilt on for his whole life and by carrying this guilt he did not have the life he wished to have. First of all, the narrator should forgive himself because The seventh man felt like a protector towards K. For example,( Para 9) pg 6 states “ Ever since I could remember, my best friend was a boy I’ll call K. His house was close to ours, and he was a grade behind me in school. We were like brothers, walking to and from school together, and always playing together when we got home”.

In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, Darrel “Darry” Curtis appears cold-hearted, but he is not.
