I did not know how lonely I had been until I had Rontu to talk to. (16.13)

"Wintscha," she said.
Why is Karana happy to hear Tutok speak. Isn't Tutok an enemy Aleut?

Below me, Rontu was running along the cliff, barking at screaming gulls. Pelicans were chattering as they fished the blue water. Far off I could hear the bellow of a sea elephant. But suddenly, as I thought of Tutok, the island seemed very quiet. (22.33)
Why is Karana lonely again? Aren't the animals' noises enough to keep her company?
