Elliot decides to sit with her friend Dee to try to get away from Kai, he comes over and says that all the things he told her about her being his friend and him loving her were a lie. He tells her that he lied because he didn't want to have it hard like the other posts and get It easy because he always hung out with Elliot.

Character Analysis

I think Elliot is considerate because she puts her posts before her and she is loyal to Ro even though she if hard to understand and reduced.

I think Kai is daring because he jumps from rock to rock across the canyon and skillful because he caught Elliot from far away when the horse threw her.
