It’d been the first time he’d feared the founders. And when he’d first learned that breaking Community rules could have serious consequences.Six was sent to The Farm for years for "realignment" and is now Head of Security there. Holden believes Six to be merely another tool of his father's to monitor and control him.
“Because this is out of control. I was raised in this Community, Six. These people were my family. Growing up, people talked about the Farm and the people who worked there like they were clergy. They were what other members aspired to be, or at least respected even if that wasn’t what we wanted. And now you’re telling me it’s this fucking—”Six and Holden's relationship takes second place to the unveiling of The real Community, yet in a way it's fitting. There's a steamy sexual component, and a tentative mental connection that develops where nothing should exist because of the nature of Six's abilities (it's like there's a barrier around his thoughts and feelings) while Holden being empathic feasts on the emotions of others. It's a tantalizing work in progress.
"This place made of goodness and happiness. It's the best feeling in the world, and it's because I'm with you."
"It's you, Holden. You make me feel like someone else. Like someone new."
