I woke up to my shirt being tugged on; at first, I thought something was going on. I shot straight up in bed and looked over at Ponyboy. He was pulling on my shirt, his eyes gleaming with tears.

"What's wrong, baby?" I asked. I already knew the answer: He'd had a nightmare. He'd been having them every night for the past two weeks. Sometimes, he'd wake up screaming.

"I had a nightmare again," he whispered, burying his face in my shirt and softly crying. I sighed. My poor brother. He's been through so much lately: Johnny and Dallas dying, our parents deaths, and being sick for a week. It'd obviously taken a toll on him.

I wrapped an arm around his neck.

"Shhh, Pony, don't cry," I whispered softly. "It'll be alright, you're okay." I rubbed his back, and the crying ceased.

"Come on, let's lay back down." I gestured to our pillows, and Pony lay down. I reached the blankets up, and wrapped them around my baby brother's shoulders. I got under as well, and threw an arm around him.

"You alright, Ponyboy?" I asked after a few minutes.

"I'm okay now, Soda. Sorry for wakin' you up so much." He replied. Then yawned.

"Shoot, it's alright Pony. You know I don't mind."

"Thank you, Soda. I love you."

"I love you too, Ponyboy."
