“We’re almost there Gabriel, we’re going to be okay. ” Honestly Jonas didn’t even know where or what was going to happen. Jonas remembered he could lie but he didn’t want to lie to Gabriel, but he realized that he would be lying to himself too. Jonas looked around, he realized it was a hill. Him and Gabriel struggled getting to the top of the hill. Jonas felt a chill crawl up his spine, remembering the nice chill feeling. He knew he was almost there. He didn’t know exactly where, but knew he was almost there.
They both struggled getting up to the top, but as soon as he got higher and higher he felt the temperature dropped ten degrees each time. Jonas couldn’t take the cold anymore and he assumed Gabe did as well. Jonas sprinted as fast as he could up the hill, trying not to let Gabe fall out of his cradled hands.

Jonas felt Gabe’s body cool up as he got higher. His eyes were shut closed and as soon as the tip of his foot touched the top of the hill he went back; back from where everything started… The community. The sitting down. The hands on his back. The memories. The color. The pain. The love.
The Giver. Although Jonas’s eyes were closed he could see everything. He saw the sled beside him, the sun shining, the snow white covered hill, he could even see little Gabriel smiling. He took a step forward. “CRACK” “Did you hear that? We made it. We did it. ” Jonas said, telling Gabe and The Giver. He felt accomplished but not a hundred percent. There was something missing. He wondered about the Giver, “Did he hear the first step of our achievement? ” Jonas wondered, wondered about the community, all of them suffering, but yet them iscovering color, memories. Love. Jonas finally opened his eyes.
He felt the cool swift breeze and saw the bright snow and the shining sun, Gabriel smiling, and icicles hanging from the trees that stood across the view. He felt happiness, he thought, “Wow, I’m actually here. ” He was so distracted with all the thoughts cluttered in his head he forgot about Gabriel. He looked down. Gabriel was pale, paler than the snow white hill and his hands, they were colder than the icicles hanging from the trees. Jonas had panicked so hoped for the best and went down the hill, trying to hink of warmness and giving more of it to Gabriel but he had no more of the memory.
Jonas hugged Gabe as tight as he could and tried giving him body warmth. He got to the bottom and saw houses, they were different, different from the Sameness at the community. Jonas saw people coming out of the houses, they were all different. They had long, short, straight, curly, different colored hair, all different shapes and sizes. It was so different from what Jonas was used to, he had never seen so much differences. Even though he wanted to explore he knew he had to go get help from someone. Jonas felt the touch of ice.
He looked down and Gabe was pale white, his smile had been wiped off. The world had stayed still for a moment, and Jonas’s heart had dropped. Gabe was dead? Was he? Jonas fell to the ground crying out for help. “Someone help!! Please! Help. ” Tears were rolling down Jonas’s face and everybody had crowded around him helping him get up and pick up Gabe. Jonas was frightened, feeling the pain he thought he had got rid of. He picked up Gabe he was lighter, paler, weaker. Jonas kissed him on his forehead whispered in his ear, “l love you Gabe” a teardrop fell and landed onto Gabes cheek.
