Fear of Freedom

"They might even hit him now -- no one could see them anymore, and so no one would come to Ender's rescue. There were advantages to the monitor, and he would miss them" (Card, 6).

When anyone is being taken care of or catered to in some way that is necessary or unnecesary, we become so used to that, and don't want to break out on our own due to fear. Andrew is scared because he knows he's independent now. I think this quote shows his fear, but it also shows his acceptance, because he says he would miss them, so he realizes that he doesn't have the monitor anymore, that it is something in his past. Andrew doesn't know anything else, so it's scary, but I think it will be easier for him because of his young age.
