Storyboard Text

  • Matthew and Mark never had to hide, did they?
  • No.
  • Then why do I?
  • "'Matthew and Mark never had to hide, did they?' he asked. Mother was scrubbing the remains of scrambled eggs out of the skillet." (Haddix 6)
  • Oh Lukie, do you really need to know? Isn't it enough to know--things are just different for you.
  • "She turned her head and looked at him carfully. 'No,' she said. 'Then why do I?'" (Haddix 6)
  • I want to know why I'm different. I want to know why I have to hide.
  • "She dried her hands and left the sink, something Luke had almost never seen her do if there were still dirty dishes to be washed." (Haddix 6)
  • The Population Law bans parents from having more than 2 children, and, well... you are a third child. 
  • We can't let you be seen or else you will be taken away from us.
  • "She crouched beside him and smoothed his hair back from his forehead. 'Oh Lukie, do you really need to know? Isn't it enough to know--things are just different for you?' He thought about that. Mother was always saying he was the only one who would ever sit on her lap and cuddle. She still read bedtime stories to him, and Matthew and Mark thought that was sissified. Was that what she meant? But he was just younger. He'd grow up. Wouldn't he be like them then?" (Haddix 6)
  • "With unusual stubborness, Luke insisted, 'I want to know why I'm different. I want to know why I have to hide.'" (Haddix 6)
  • "So Mother told him." (Haddix 6)
  • "Later, he wished he asked more questions."     (Haddix 6)
  • Oh man! I wanted to ask Mom why the Population Law was made.
  • "But at the time it was all he could do to listen to what she told him. He felt like he was drowning in the flow of her words." (Haddix 6)
  • ...bans parents from having more than...
  • "'It just happened,' she said. 'You just happened. And we wanted you. I wouldn't even let you dad talk about... getting rid of you.'" (Haddix 6)
  • It just happened. You just happened. And we wanted you. I wouldn't even let your dad talk about... getting rid of you.
