This shirt is too big for my neck, but not long at all for my arms. Now my shoulder and fingers are cold. But these pants are just right. They fight nicely on my little legs... But I look like a tree, a thick brush with a small trunk. This silky white shirt is much too baggy... My wrists are cold too.
"Do you like you're clothes? I'm sorry, they are my children's old outfits, but these are the only items that could fit you." Miss Christian is kind to allow me to wear these clothes. She still sounds scared though. "Here, sit on this bed and I'll get you socks." She turned to a dresser as I climbed onto the lower bunk of a bunkbed.
"... Are you okay, Miss Christian Valdan?" Oh, my voice is not as sore. That is good, now I can ask her so many questions. I still know nothing, but I can remember what a tree and a bird is. Why could that be?
"No, Gabriel. I am so worried. I'm worried that some horrible men from the government could take you. That they would steal you from me and use you for horrible things. I don't... I would never want that to happen." Her eyes are watering... I wish I could help. This all seems like my fault. Her hand has fallen on my head again and she's stroking it. I'm going to get sleepy...
I took her hand, I don't want to fall asleep now! "Miss Christian! I can hide, it's okay. I'll hide so that they won't find me. They will never take me away, so you don't need to cry." These people sound awfully scary, what could they want with me, what would they do? Would they put me back in that tank...? Put wires on me, make me go back to sleep?! No! I don't want to go back, I want to stay here, with Miss Christian. She cares about me, she will look after me, and I can hide and be safe.
She's still crying... But she has a smile on her face. What is this? "Thank you, Gabriel... You don't understand but you still wish to help. You are so sweet...." She's still rubbing my head, I guess I can just be a little lazy and get comfortable... "Gabe, are you hungry?" She has stopped rubbing my head! Please rub more...
"What? H-Hungry?" I sat up, just realising that I had layed down on the bed. Hm, I was hungry. What am I hungry for though, something spicey? What foods are spicey? "... I think I am. I don't know."
" I would think so, you've never tasted food in seven years, being in that tank and all." She laughed a little. "Wait here and I'll get you some food." She's already out the door! Maybe she's hungry too.
Oh... Look, the window's open. That's what letting out such a nice breeze. What is that out there? Is that a cat? Come here, kitty, kitty! You look so soft! Oh wait, please don't run, come back!
"Oh! Wow!!" There's buildings, cars, people, and so many flashing lights with buzzing sounds. Hey, there's that cat! Come back here, I just want to pet you!! ... I just realised that I'm barefoot. Hey, look at that long and tall car, it's so odd and slow... A bus, isn't it?
"Come on, boy! Don't just stand there!" A man yelled behind me and pushed me back. He's getting on that bus! He's looking back at me, "Hey, aren't you getting on? What are you waiting for?"
Oh, am I? I should I guess... Yes, it looks fun! I'll just ride around.
It's so fun riding in a bus! Look, more lights and buildings! This man was so kind to let me sit next to him, I guess that he is just an impatient man... Why is he wearing such a large trenchcoat? What has he got under that? "Excuse me sir? Thank you for letting me sit next to you, but why are you wearing such a trenchcoat on such a nice day?"
"....." The man isn't saying anything. Maybe he didn't hear me?
"Shut up and be quiet boy, I don't want a scene here..." A scene-... Oh no. Oh no! He's got a gun, he's a part of the government! Yes, I recognise that badge, he's going to take me away! Please, someone-
...There's no one on this bus. Where did everyone go! Oh please, someone, I'm scared. He will take me away and put me back in the tank! No, I don't want to go back!
"GABRIEL!!" Who is that? Out the window? A younger man is chasing the bus. He has darker tan skin, and it looks like his hair has been covered with an egg shell, but he must of died the black hair on top of his head bleach white. I think it looks like an egg shell. Does he want a ride... How does he know my name? Is he with the government too?! This is an ambush!! "Gabriel, get out of the bus! My mom want's you back home! What are you doing here?! The government could be after you!" What...? So he's not with them?
"Please! Help me!" No, the man is pulling me from the window and now I can feel the barrel at the back of my head! Please, somebody, anybody!
