Goliath and the Girl

{excerpt from recovered journal}

I think I finally get why she wanted me to record these things.  I didn’t get it until now.

I thought she wanted me to make a log of everything we did, like a report.  Maybe in case something else happened to her memory.  But… right, that’s what she told me… that I should record my thoughts.

[sigh] She actually cares what I think.

I was confused, though, because when I tried to show her, she looked at me like I was crazy.  [chuckle]  She said it was just for me.  I didn’t even understand that.  Goliaths don’t get anything for their own.  But I think I understand now.

She thinks it should matter to me.  My thoughts.  Opinions.

[pause]  She says she thinks I’m a human.  I keep trying to tell her I’m not, but… maybe it’s because Goliaths look human, because we’re so close.  But we’re not.  She keeps saying it, though.  She keeps saying “everyone knows, they just don’t want to say it.”

[extended pause]

So, here’s my thought.  If she’s right, that’s bad.  The reason Tower made us is so real people wouldn’t have to die.  But if Goliaths are people, if we are human….

So, no.  I’m a clone, not a person.  I fight so people won’t have to.

That’s my thought.
