Ponyboy's tone is apprehensive and anxious. He is nervous that he's walking alone, since Greasers often get jumped by Socs, "the jet set, the West-side rich kids."As soon as he has this thought, a red Corvair starts following him, and he starts sweating and getting scared. Soon he is surrounded by Socs. One of them flips out a knife and asks if Ponyboy needs a haircut; he is overpowered by them, with the knife to his throat, and starts screaming. A scuffle ensues, and Ponyboy is helped to his feet by Darry, his oldest brother. The Greaser gang has chased away the Socs.
