Kale and Dez are travelling around the country, trying to contact other sixes and take them back to safety. After they visit the next six, they are heading to an amusement park so that Dez can get some "Kale time" as she calls it. She doesn't really trust them and tags along to the amusement park. Where they are attacked by one of Denazen's best, Samsen. A nightmare from Kale's past. He can control Kale just by using his voice.
This short story is told from Kale's POV. It is quite amusing being in Kale's head. He doesn't really understand sarcasm, wit or slang. He is such an innocent, it is really cute. When they go to the amusement park, he is amazed at all the rides, and slightly fearful of the clown. He can't really figure how the amusement park is fun.
Once they are attacked by Samsen, we see a much different Kale. He is very protective of Dez, he is strong, brave and well trained. It kind of felt like the man taking over from the little boy when danger appeared. He is such a likeable character. I am looking forward to Toxic now.
