Goliath and the Girl

{excerpt from recovered journal}

It really started the first time we went to New Barcelona.  She kept saying things and asking questions that made me think about things I’d never thought before.  I guess, questions I never thought of asking.

She spent so much time looking at me like I was crazy.  But the first time she said she thought I was a person… I thought she was crazy.

She didn’t say it like that, I guess.  She… what’s the word… she was thinking it, but she didn’t say it.

Implied.  She implied it.

I remember, I actually thought, I’m not the weird one.  Who told you Goliaths were people?

[scoff]

On the way to the orphanage, she asked me how many humans I’d saved.  How many people’s lives.  I told her about a hundred, because of the time I shot the man with the bomb on Kepler.  It’s probably more, definitely more now, but she was still really impressed.

She said something like, “Maybe you’ll save my life.”  And I said I hoped I wouldn’t have to.

Yeah.  Well.
