Goliath and the Girl

The Question

“So, why don’t you think you’re human?”

“I’m not human.”

“But Goliaths are human.”

“There are significant genetic differences between Goliaths and humans.”

“Don’t they say that on the commercials?”


“Am I making you angry?”

“…I’m not sure why, but it’s not your fault.”

“We don’t have to talk about it.”

“Did someone tell you Goliaths are human?”

“Sister Parveen. She said Jesus died for Goliaths too.”

“I don’t understand.”

“Well, Jesus died to take everyone’s sins away. And someone asked if that meant clones too, and Sister Parveen said yes.”

“Is ‘Jesus’ Jesus Christ?”

“Yup! So you know about Jesus?”

“I’ve heard people say the name. She said Goliaths are people?”

“Yup, and she said everyone knows it, but people just don’t want to admit it.”

“Does that mean… you think I’m human?”

“Yeah. Of course.”


“231, don’t be sad. Why are you sad?”

“Every Goliath wants to be human. I just… never thought anyone thought we were.”
