Australopithecine

Kala watched the australopithecines from the safety of the city wall, and wrinkled her nose in disgust. "They are never going to get socialized."

Nalen shrugged. "It'll take time."

"Why does it have to take time?"

"They're growing. They're learning."

"But the Dasaroi were born like this." She gestured to herself, to him.

He regarded her seriously. "Kala... they made mistakes with us."

"They made mistakes with Tal, you mean."

"With us. We should not have been born adult, immortal. They... their gods are taking their time. Moving slowly, and correcting as they go."

She snorted in derision. "They will never be like us."

"That might be a good thing."
