She has been living alone, learning about being a human again while her only interactions are with the animals around her. She thinks she is the only one of her kind until she finds pale men exploring her island.

When she finds out about the pale men exploring her island, the readers also feel her feelings as she cowers at the sight of the other humans. One of the men, Maverick, introduces himself to the woman and shows her the things he brings, along with the other men. Now that shes with the men, she is considered a captive. Being in this position lets her learn new things as she tries to catch up with the world. Maverick reintroduces her to a world she had never known before.
