An intersting view of Mala's adjustment... but it seems almost too easy. If non-Specrans ar really that different, there should be more resentment. Even Zoltar, in his own way, seems to grudgingly respect her. I'm curious to see where this is leading.
I'm aslo wondering about that walkway repair. Could there be a bomb, or some such, underneath it?
Author's Response: Now that you've put these thoughts in my head, I'm running with some ideas. Let's say that, even after all this time, there are some nobles who wonder if the Luminous One is what It claims to be. And they aren't pleased with Mala's new status. Mala was raised on Spectra, so she's not that different in her facial expressions and thinking. The same with a lot of the other slaves and servants. While some differences are a result of being different species, others are cultural. I think some of Mala's musings are her efforts to stave off her fear. She can't relax just yet.
