The kid would very much hope that there's something at the end of the rainbow. But is it really there? What if not? After all, a story is just a story and real life is vastly different from it. There's no such thing as dreamy as a story. Life is hard, the Universe is harsh, cold, and indifferent.
"Some stupid story," the kid said. "Everything has its place and my place is to scrap from others. At best, I can only dream of collecting money to get out of this place. I can never be equal to those people", Kid pointed at those people. The kid believes that the kid's place is at the bottom of the so-called society.
