At the dinner time, everyone had to express their feelings to each other whether they were happy, sad or if they were flustered. Each of them were talking about their day and how it went.
Father works at the Nurturing Center and he is taking care of a little baby named Gabriel. Father takes him home and is worried for him due to Gabriel being a little late on his development.
No more stirrings for you Jonas...here, take this.
I feel like all the other kids know...is that a good thing or bad thing?
While Asher and Jonas were at the Recreation Center, they were tossing an apple back and forth. When Jonas was throwing it, something was different, he noticed the apple changing in the air. It confused him and he tried to take it home.
Sorry Jonas for skipping you, but you are now The Receiver of Memory
Jonas volunteered at the House of Old bathing old folk. There, he bathed an old woman named Larissa. Jonas helped Larissa take a bath and they began to have conversations.
Jonas had a stirring about Fiona the night before and he told his family about it at breakfast. Before he left, his mother gave him a pill that most kids his age had already been taking to prevent these stirrings.
At the Ceremony of Twelve, Chief Elder was announcing everyone's assignments and she went by birth-order. When it was Jonas' turn next, she skipped him. She later apologized and went on to say he had been selected to be the next Receiver of Memory.
