His wide, flat face with its prominent nose, dark eyes, and deep reddish brown skin told of his Native American heritage more than his conservative gray one-piece suit, and for an instant he almost wished he'd worn something more comfortable. His people--descendants of the Cherokee--had settled a frontier planet called Dorvanto twenty years previously, and they had gone back to their people's old ways. He would have felt more comfortable in a leather vest, breechcloth, and moccasins. It had been many years since he'd worn such confining clothing.

In a family of the bizarre, at least one child will long for the security of a billion people who will dress, think, eat, work and play as he does, and comfort him... The results of a twenty-two year study of parent-child relations begun in 914 [2871 A.D.] by the Petenji Institute indicated that in those days there was an eighteen percent chance that a parent would consider that his grown child had turned out badly, and a thirty-seven percent chance that he wouldn't understand him even if he were willing to accept him. And this says nothing about the ordinary conflicts involved in raising a child. I don't suppose that six hundred years have changed matters appreciably. "

He spent much of his time among them, watching them at their play and eventually being accepted by them as a friend. Sometimes it seemed to him that they were not human at all, their motives, their logic, and even their language were so alien. He would look unbelievingly at the adults and ask himself how it was possible that they could have evolved from these extraordinary creatures who seemed to spend most of their lives in a private world of their own.

'How do you mean?' She was live again [on TV].

'Watch the video-return slots at your local video store. A car comes up, adult driving, passenger, a kid between the ages of six and eighteen. Who gets out to put the tape back, no matter what the weather, now matter how bad the traffic, no matter what the crime rate? And who stays in the cool/warm/dry/safe car, waiting? That's what I mean. Free labor, no rights, no pull against the big and powerful adults.

'And so when some adults are transformed into beings the size of children, we think nothing of stripping them of their rights, their responsibilities, their property, their savings, their families--their dignity--because that's how the culture thinks of little humans. Just things to be tolerated as long as they stay in their place... and we act surprised when someone loses control and does some harm. What hypocrisy!...' "

They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I supposed she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, 'Oh, why can't you remain like this for ever!' This was all that passed between them on the subject, and henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end. "
