A Message:

I knew I had to get a message to him. There was no other option. The wall had fallen. 

The supposedly impenetrable wall. 

The wall that was supposed to protect us. 

I wasn’t so sure anymore whether it did that. After what I had overheard, I now suspected it was to keep us from finding out about what was in the outside world. 

They didn’t want us to know anything. They had kept us in the dark for so long. Leaf had tried to tell me that but I hadn’t listened. I’d thought he was crazy and I knew he couldn’t tell anyone else because they’d tell the authorities and he would disappear overnight. That’s what happened to curious people. If you started asking questions someone was bound to report you. 

I couldn’t trust anyone else but him. 

Leaf was the only person left who could do something. He was the only one I knew who would understand what I had done. 

I had breached the wall and I was responsible for the chaos that had suddenly erupted. 

I was a hero for the ordinary people, I knew, but when the authorities discovered who it was that had let the world in, I would also be the enemy. 

I needed to leave immediately. It wasn’t safe here for me anymore; I wondered if it had ever really been safe. 

I didn’t know what would happen to me or to Leaf but I knew together we would stand a chance.
