What if ponyboy every month or so kept asking Darry to get him bleach or blonde hair dye when he’s roots came in
He didn’t understand it until he remembered how johnny bleached ponys hair when they were running away from the cops.
So for the sake of helping pony boy remember his old friend
Darry goes out once a month to buy bleach for ponyboys and help him put it on and wash it out.
so pony can always stay gold for johnny.
I REGRET NOTHING.
