Pony's opinion on what?

Does Pony's opinion Cherry change in chapter 8?

I think there is a little tension between them. Cherry asks about Johnny, but says she can't bring herself to go visit him in the hospital because he is the one who killed her boyfriend, Bob. Ponyboy understands, but is still mad because he knows that it's not Johnny's fault Bob is dead. He tells her, "I wouldn't want you to see him. You're a traitor to your own kind and not loyal to us." He notices that she is about to cry, and feels ashamed. She says she wasn't trying to give him charity, she just liked him from the start. Ponyboy makes amends by asking, "can you see the sunset real good from the West Side?" she is surprised, but answers yes. He says, "You can see it good from the East Side, too," once again closing the gap between them. Then he walks home.
