A beautiful city, clustered with things from inside his brain, things he had never viewed before, was what the small boy dreamed of. In ten years older, David fulfilled Sophie, an exclusive young woman, taking in all the details very obviously about her. David appeared to have an frame of mind much more adult than his years must have brought. This might have been because he didn't think he really had anybody to truly confer with because his community was so narrow-minded whereas this individual wasn't. David didn't take others view as his own, but decided upon his own opinion, growing an eyesight to see points unbiased, since several young children aren't do after being thus strongly pressured by their parents to see issues their method. David appeared kind, friendly and very beneficial even though this individual stated he felt pointless when he was not able to support. (p. 9) As a child, David was not lauded often so when Mrs. Wender complimented David, he looked incapable of effectively thanking her. (p. 12)
David shows that he is very knowledgeable if he describes to us the family history, as well as the history of the community's morals as he is aware of them over the novel. David goes in to great details about every thing, I think David's great attention and question helps him take in information, in hopes that he will better understand aspects of life.
When David 1st met Sophie's mother, he unsuccessfully attempts to telepathically speak with her, to calm her down. We later get David can be telepathic, and Rosalind is. David enables Uncle Axel in on his little top secret. Uncle Axel, from there about, is David's protector.
David wasn't one to question his loyalty to Sophie. When ever Alan Ervin, on elderly boy, noticed an imprint of Sophie's foot, David took a life risking chance the moment fighting Joe to allow for Sophie to escape.
For such a young age, David was able to continue to be very strong once Sophie were required to leave. His dreams showed how deeply torn he was over the subject and how this individual felt as if he were helpless and responsible.
