I can understand the offer made to the former No.6, that he would feel happier as himself, to wear his own suit of clothes. But what I don’t get it, is what was it that No.48 did to have himself brought to the proceedings of ‘Fall Out,’ and for him to be allowed to wear his own clothes? I suppose he’s there as a kind of court jester, to both amuse and entertain. Then on the other hand he’s one form of revolt, uncoordinated youth which rebels because it must, but against nothing it can define. Its quite clear that the President will have no truck with No.48, he’s not the kind of person to be an example to the administration of The Village. It makes you wonder why he’s there at all, unless it’s to help demonstrate to the members of the Assembly what a good choice the former No.6 would be. Because it’s no use choosing the ex-No.2, who isn’t even afforded the opportunity to feel happier as himself, there being no time to….but on the other hand there would have been ample time whilst the medical team resuscitated the ex-No.2, for someone to fetch No.2’s own clothes from his quarters. But it would seem that this ex-No.2 is not worthy of being afforded that luxury, to feel happier as himself! But then No.2 wasn’t himself, he didn’t feel happier as himself, because he was enjoying feeling like a “new” man! Mind you he, like No.48 before him, is only there to make No.6 look even better. Because what kind of example does the ex-No.2 set when he turns on, and bites the hand that feeds?! Its no wonder the President praises the former No.6 so highly when one considers the other material presented to the members of the assembly!
Be seeing you
