There is a sadness to him. I can understand that. He just wants to have friends who he can care about and they care about him. However, he also knows that he's different.... and not very pretty. He's shunned and they all whisper things about him. He can understand their fear and, every day, he curses about his lot in life. I try to tell him that he's wrong. But, he's been this way for a long time. I'm not sure how to reach him but I think that it's important to do that.
