"He no longer stuck out, his height no longer laughable. But with his head hanging low, he felt most ungiraffeable."
Gerome does not like the attention he draws due to his height. He finds a way to keep a low profile but knows he isn't being genuine. He is finally able to fully embrace his height, and its advantages, when his concern for another becomes greater than his concern for himself.
