Jonas is being 'selected'(75) for his job title at the ceremony of 12.
*number 19 refers to Jonas*
And finally,... number 19 has not been assigned a job...
But,.. he has been selected! Selected to be our next Receiver of Memories!
Reciever of Memories
"Can I really do this?"
He starts to read the rules for his new job, and begins to think that he cannot do it.
Jonas gets lots of memories, full of emotions like pain and happiness, from The Giver, and begins to understand the true meanings in them. He also starts to see colors, not everyone in his community can see colors, only the people that hold and protect the memories, like Jonas and The Giver.
"I need to escape with Gabe tonight, or he will also be released!"
Jonas talks to The Giver about escaping the community. When he heard that his little brother, Gabe, was going to be released, he thought of a plan so he could bring Gabe with him, too.
"I'll take my dad's bike,so I can bring Gabe."
"We'll make a plan."(192)
He took Gabe and fled the community. 'They would be looking for him soon.'(290)
"I have to hide, they will be looking for me soon."
Jonas and Gabe make it to elsewhere and all of the memories of the past are put back into the community, where they belong.
