Unlike Six, these newcomers believe they are arriving from The Village as opposed to from another world. Six begins to feel increasing pain, and learns that he is beginning to die. Two explains to Six the nature of Village death, and that Six does have a choice as to his future. 313 increasingly understands that she has a life in another world, and has to control how that life affects her in The Village. She wants to do whatever she can to help Six in having a better future, as does 147. 11-12 also understands his place in The Village and takes steps to control his own destiny. Six believes that 11-12 may be his key to escaping from The Village. And as Michael learns the truth as to what is happening from Curtis and Helen including why Six has a memory of his other life whereas others in The Village do not, Michael has to make a decision as to Six's fate as well as those in The Village, most specifically that of 313. All of this is happening as an increasing number of holes appear in The Village and may consume its inhabitants unless a decision is made quickly. Written by Huggo See less
