 Hitiko continues to be confused.

 Hitiko goes rather red. And bows to him inferior to superior.

 Hitiko bows to the Keplian, and tries to frame her thoughts.
 [Apology/Embarrassment/Wish-to-not-offend. Images of Hitiko working
 happily, images of her laughing at a joke from her sensei and from Alex.
 Images of Hitiko listening in fascination to Rhiannon and Saint John.
 Images of Hitiko meeting Dr Joe Rosen, and him accepting that she is a
 Son of Ether, and that she can work with him.]
 [I am not really that lonely, no more than most humans, anyway.]
 [Image of Iteration X with a group mind, no individuality, no creativity
 allowed that is not agreed by the group. Grey thoughts. Grey lives. Wish
 to not be submerged in a group/collective mind. Understanding?]
