I've never been much for expressing my feelings, I suppose

What are you doing, Alvin?
Figured I'd stay away since everyone's so sick of me.
Maybe because you're a big fat liar.
Yeah, that's just who I am, all right. And what about you, Elize? Wondering what to do?
Yeah. I just don't know what the right choice is.
Well, you're talking to the wrong guy. I don't know much about being a kid. Never really had a childhood.
So were you a member of Exodus ever since you were just a little boy?
Yeah, that's right. I thought it was okey to trick people. When things would go bad, I'd just disappear. I'd take the path of least resistance. I pretty much just did whatever didn't hurt me, that's all.
Then, does that mean you won't be going with Milla and Jude?
You know what? That kid forces me to wake up and smell reality. They're all just so mature, the way they hide their real feelings about me.
Oh, now I get it! You're lonely, aren't you, Alvin?
I've never been much for expressing my feelings, I suppose. But even if they do hate me. I have to stick it out. I'm not leaving this time.
So does that mean that you really want to be their friend again?
I've learned that building real trust with people takes a lot more work than you think.
Being a grownup sounds like an awful lot of pain.
It seems like the older you get, the tougher it is to share your feelings with others. Anyway, no one will want to be friends with me until I can make the firts move. It's hard, but it sure bearts being alone.
I wonder what I'm supposed to do now? What do I have to do to become happy?
Well, it's different for everyone. You just have to find what works for you. I'm sure you know what you want by now?
I guess so. It hasn't been easy, but I've learned a lot traveling with everybody. I know that I definitely don't want to stop. That's for sure! I want to keep on learning more, and I want to make some new friends!
Yeah. That sounds pretty good to me.
Some help you are.
I told you, I'm the wrong guy to ask about this stuff. Sorry about that, kid.
That's a "thank you". I just wanted you to know that from now on, I'm gonna be your friend, okey?
How come the kids are the wisest people in this group?
