Fooled Do you ever think you're a fool for believing, trusting, hoping, wishing, etc? Well if you haven't, you may encounter a moment when you do. After a massacre and life's been chaotic, the therapist is back and you completely trust her. Do you ever feel confused, why oh why is this this way? Why is that that way? So many questions of this and that. How can all that be avoided? Stop being naïve, give trust to only those who really know you? How we measure up to the truth is done in different ways depending on the person. Darren Shan shows how trust can just be a belief, a hope for others to connect with us. Not everything is the way we want to think it is. In a sense or manner of speaking, it is immature to think that way since it won't do us any good. Sure, if you look back on things now, you can laugh and yet, at the same time feel ashamed of having acted like that. In a similar way, Grubbs was foolish and trusted someone apart from his family. This way, he let his enemy snare him, trap him—seal him in a box tightly. Simply put, he dug his own grave...he doesn't die but this mistake shames him badly. Juni, therapist who Dervish has fallen for helps Grubbs and Bill-E majorly in recovering. Behind their backs though, she's been sneaking information off to her boss, their enemy— Lord Loss. Indeed, she is not on their team but her acting is so advanced that they know not she is evil and waiting to sell them out. Naïve Grubbs follows her right into the trap, believing every single word she says. After all he's been through, it's not totally unbelievable he's let down his guard. Darren Shan's way of expressing trust is very poetic in violent way but it gives the truth directly to you. The truth is always lingering behind you whether you like it or not and it is your choice to act naïve or mature. Accepting the truth is difficult since you don't always know what the actual, concrete truth is but once you've learned it, it's best to take it in even if only slowly. Everything comes to a limit so you have to push that limit only when the time comes.
