The Giver Graphic Novel --- Jonas Escaping Scene --- By: Nevil Gandhi
I must escape now, this is my only chance.
Jonas decides that now is the time to escape. He chooses to take Gabriel so he doesn't get released.
Jonas swiftly makes it outside of his dwelling with Gabriel sleeping in his hands. Jonas takes his Fathers bike because it has a seat for Gab.
As he exited the community Jonas made quick a stop to steal food. Although he passed some night workers he did not get caught.
Jonas had crossed the river and was now riding on the edges of the community. He knew that soon his family would realize he was missing and people would come during the day. So, he decided to go as far from the community and sleep during the day.
My feet are becoming num but I must go on.
Jonas was exhausted from peddling on the bike all night, however Gabe was not. After Jonas stopped they had a quick morning meal. Then, Jonas explained to Gabe that he must go back to sleep. Jonas knew it would only be safe traveling at night because nobody would be looking for him then.
Gabe, I know you just woke up and its morning but we need to sleep now. During the night we must continue our journey.
