"Well, right thing or not, not everyone would have helped me like you did," he noted, easily thinking of at least one Na'vi in particular who wouldn't have. "And I promise you, Nearae, I will not forget you. However busy I am, I plan on finding time to see you," he assured her, giving her a smile. He truly already thought of her as a friend, and the last thing he wanted was to cut ties with her. In fact, despite knowing it was rather unlikely, he hadn't given up hope completely that she'd be allowed to be the one to teach him. Maybe Kyuan would see that already he'd learned from her.
He tried not to think about it too much, though, because there wasn't anything he could do about it for the moment. "This trip seemed much shorter on the way down," he said with a joking smile when they paused, "I guess it'll take a while for me to get strong enough to do this as easily as you." He paused a moment, stretching a bit and testing how sore he was getting from all of this - the avatar body was kept reasonably strong through muscle stimulation over the course of the trip from Earth, but it wasn't enough to be fully prepared for all of this.
"I was wondering what life is like here... in general, I mean - on a daily basis. Like, how do you spend your time?" he asked, partially because he was just curious what the day to day would be like if he was ever fully accepted, but more at that point because he wanted to know more about her.
