Kaz looks at him for a second, face betraying how much those words affected him, his mouth trembles with the words he wants to say, screwing his eyes shut for a second before he opens them up, the fire behind them burning brighter than ever. "You can 't tell me shit like that and not pound me into the mattress," He says, words alight with need and the words flow off of his tongue beautifully, the perfect balance of stubbornness and desperation, all rumpled clothes and messy hair, nearly panting as he lay there on the bed looking like sin incarnate. Ocelot laughs, but it 's not a mean sound. Rather, it 's as sincere as he gets and a high compliment to anyone who gets close enough to him to hear it.

You give a slight nod of approval and hope you’re not too forward in pressing “send” on his behalf. Fuck, you’re so close to breaking down and laughing your ass off.
He retains blurred memories of a mother’s hug as they look up at the sky, and remembers whispered assurances that he is the brightest star of them all.

Yet he is too often met by the cruelty of an ignorant child or the suspicion of an adult who should truly know better. And so he adapts to his environment, his heart hardening against the slurs and the insults. He bloodies his knuckles on many a taunting boy and maintains a blankness on his face that reveals no weakness.
George 's Tea room, reality always destroys Hally 's hope, ultimately wrecking his imagination and taking him out of Sam’s protective realm. Hally “oscillate[s] between hope and despair” (15), the hope being Sam’s sanctuary and despair being reality for Hally. After experiencing the miracle of flying that kite, Hally returns back to despair, or reality’s poisonous realm, as he has “no self pity” (32) when he realizes that there won’t be a chance “of flying a kite” (31) again, especially not with his crippled dad. Hally has no hope in himself in this poisonous realm as he already has accepted himself as a failure.
