They gave Bel a small room with a bed, a bathroom, and a desk to write on, as well as a notebook and dull, felt tip pens- so as not to harm anyone, including himself. He would draw, write rhyming verse, and wait for them to bring in food, complete with plastic utensils, no knives. It would be the same three assistants.

Finds crying a little odd and useless, since it does nothing to contribute to the situation but a stuffy nose and itchy eyes. In place of crying, stares at walls or ceilings until he cannot see aforementioned walls or ceilings.

Secret: He finds being touched slightly uncomfortable, though not painful.
