dining room. Of course I had never seen one up close, only in one of the memories the giver had given me. I felt worried for the giver, what was happening back at the community, I couldn’t bare to think of what could happen to him. As I came out of my deep thought I saw the three people standing around the table all of their eyes were pinned on my eyes. They must have seen the similarity that I had seen between Janelle and I. Gabriel still in my arms was whining now and I knew the hunger he felt, I asked, quietly at first, “may I have some food?” Almost as quick as I had finished my sentence, there was food on the table. I felt my hunger fade away as I drowned myself in meats, and cheeses. I didn’t forget about Gabriel either, I set him up right next to me and we both dove in. Janelle introduced us to her family, once I had finished my meal. I learned her mothers name was Scarlett. Janelle’s father’s name was Elleigh, and Janelle’s brother’s name was Cole. Cole asked me if I would play with him, and I asked his mother, she replied, “ After we celebrate christmas.” “I have never celebrated any holiday,” I replied. We just looked at each other in thought. Janelle asked, “can I share my presents with Jonas this year mommy?” Scarlett replied, “of course dear!” I had never seen that sort of kindness, someone I barely knew just gave up things that weren’t even hers yet.
