I am totally depressed today. I couldn’t concentrate on my work and ended up watching the celebrations of Razjosh Elder’s life. He still seems very active to me. And he’s certainly been so supportive to Kaleem. One day he’ll die. And to think by now he should have been switched off!
Kaleem! How is he going to manage without that constant source of wisdom? It will all be down to him once Kaleem’s gone. What will the Z Zoners make of that? The man who persuaded the current Peace Child to work with them, now having to go through that very thing which made them turn to the Z Zone in the first place.
Razjosh was an unlikely Peace Child then. He was very popular when he was younger and also very athletic. Perhaps that explains why he is still so fit. He wanted to be a sports man. They watched him at all the school meets. Oh they do that. Creepy, creepy, creepy. I think that’s why they have all of the meets. Just so that they can see exactly what we’re like.
Anyway, they picked him because he was always defending the kids who were bullied. He even got into a fight with one of the bullies and ended up breaking the other kid’s jaw. Razjosh? Who would believe it? They took him in to a juvenile detention centre. While he was there, they watched him even more closely. Then someone saw that he was good at grammar and tried him with a couple of other languages. Just like Kaleem, he took to it straight away.
It was a bit sad, though. He had to leave a girlfriend behind.
Sounds familiar, or what?
Of course they didn’t give all of the details. They didn’t tell about him having been to Zandra three times. And I expect there are lots of other stories about places he went to that even Kaleem and I don’t know about.
They showed some video clips of him working in his study and he actually talked to the audience about some of his work. He didn’t talk about anything secret, and of course that meant he could really only talk about his studies, not about all the things he has actually done. Hidden Information and all that. But he seems such a wise, peace-loving, gentle old man.
How can we do without him?
