Summary
Analysis
Titus reports, “Being with Violet was great.” Violet did not grow up with a feed because her father forbade it, and it was too expensive. She’s very new to the world of the feed, and so even though he’s not as smart as she is, Titus often plays the role of a guide. They go to the mall and make up stories about the shoppers, laughing the whole time.
Titus is conscious of his intellectual inferiority to Violet, but that’s partly why he’s attracted to her: she’s curious and creative in a way that he clearly admires. He also evidently enjoys getting to introduce her to the world of the feed.
