Equality sneaks out to go spend time and write in the tunnel. Writing in a journal is not allowed but he still does so. He feels that he is alone there under the earth (Rand 17).
Equality has a best friend named International 4-8818. It is against the rules to have a favorite friend, but he does anyway. International 4-8818 is just like him. He is tall, strong youth and has eyes like fireflies. His laughter is in his eyes (Rand 29).
Equality spots Liberty while he was sweeping the street. He stares. He thinks she's beautiful. She was glowing, her body thin as iron (Rand 39).
Equality had an encounter with Liberty. They spoke. Because of her he feels the earth is good and it is not a burden to live (Rand 41). He sang in the dining hall tunes he had never heard before because he was happy (Rand 45).
Equality went down to his cave and while dissecting a frog he discovered electricity. He made a magnet move and discovered a lightning rod. The discovery haunted and followed him. He came to know he found the greatest power on earth (Rand 53).
Equality and Liberty met again and this time they shared words. Liberty brought him water to drink. She knelt by the moat, gathered the water in her hands, rose and held it to his lips (Rand 57).
