I could see the confusion in his sculpted, little face when it dawned on him "This is what I am... this is me." Perhaps like Pinnochio's woeful moment of self-actualization might have been, the discovery was a met with the shock of disbelief... Because all is happy & well there in the apartment, cluttered togetherness with the other toys, and it comes alive when the Giant Boy is home- all his tinkering & activity involving an ever-growing and colorful cast of characters. Silent while he thinks, reads, and types, stopping occassionally to make a cup of hot tea. And his blue eyes glisten & flicker, as though lit by candles- so alive when his gaze catches you... Yes, it all must have seen very simple to Hulk before I placed that small toy in the palm of his hand, and his awareness suddenly changed, "It's okay," I whispered before putting him back with the other Hulks on the bookshelf, "You will always be my favorite".
