In Other Side of the Chasm, Chad talks to his only friend Lia about the great divide he feels when it comes to privileged high school kids.
CHAD: You know that party Russel had last week? The one I wasn’t invited to…I walked over to his house cause I was curious, I wanted to see it with my own two eyes, what it was like to be in with the crowd. I snuck in to the side of the house, past the bushes. And through the fence I saw all of you having the best time…music, barbecue, diving in the pool, drinkin’, laughin’…it was like watching another world and yet I knew all of your faces. I saw your face and even though we’re friends it was like I was seeing you for the first time. You didn’t seem like you at all. You seemed, I don’t know, in your natural element, where you belong…you were accepted and I realized on my walk back home that I wasn’t and that sooner or later you and I, this friendship we supposedly have, is gonna thin out and end. You know why? Cause there’s no sound I can ever make that’s loud enough for any of you to take notice of…what I do, who I am, doesn’t matter…never will because that’s just the way things go when you’re on the other side of the chasm.
