When I was about 10yrs old, my grandparents took me on vacation to Hershey Park. This amusement park was filled to the brim with rides and roller coasters.

When I saw Ponyboy asleep on the hospital bed critically burned, I felt my legs giving out. As I glanced to my left, I noticed that Sodapop was tearing up. “Da-r-ry?” Soda managed to mumble out, “ WIll P-p-ony be o-kay?” At that moment I held back another wave of emotion trying to come up, “I don 't know Soda, I just don’t know.” We sat there for a while after we spoke. “PONY IS AWAKE!” gasped Soda i;n between breaths.
