When I wrote the scenes with the little runaway boy, I mainly wrote them because I wanted to reveal the object that was the cause of everything, even though it seems to remain a mystery as to how it has caused everything.
But as I kept writing the scenes with the runaway boy, they gave me the room I needed for an internal debate to play itself out in the boy’s imagination as he’s trying to figure out what the wrench is. He asks new questions and some of the same questions with each new characteristic revealed by the object.
It’s also a glimpse into how the one who is being hunted had stumbled into messing everything up. Pure human curiosity into the unknown. Hopefully, these scenes will not only be funny and entertaining, but help readers understand why the guy who is being hunted did what he did.
