I Don't Need Things Like Friends?

How much I love Novala Takemoto's texts!
I would dream to know Japanese enough to translate his works by myself T.T

Here is a part found here

A maiden does not need things like friends. Maidens are sublime and aloof by nature. In stories, the male heros will form cliques and carry out their activities together. Like in Tom Sawyer, Tom, Huckleberry Fin, and Getalobe, joined together and the three of them made the “15 boy’s drifter chronicles”, and then the 15 had to be together; they weren’t adult at all. But young ladies are different. Alice went through the perils of Wonderland by herself, and Anju helped her brother escape from the bandit’s mountain and was abandoned herself. And if you think about Meg, she was always singing, “People say I can do anything but still/ the witch girl Meg is always alone.” Being a maiden is an “absolute existence.” And being “absolute” is by definition “uniqueness” that cannot be compared to others, so maidens need no companions. Like Ken from the gangster movies, maidens have a cool independence. They say things like, “If I open my heart to people I can make friends,” but opening your heart to others is sacrelige, and you musn’t do that. A maiden’s heart is her glittering jewel, and should not be shown to others recklessly.

A maiden stands coldly like a glass pain that seems like it would shatter if touched, encased in a hard shell for protection, and that maiden, tightly bound in a web of honey and gazing at you all alone, isn’t she cute. There is no need for you to integrate yourself with the common people. It’s okay if people say you’re an “arrogant child” or a “gloomy child.” Thinking you can’t eat lunch by yourself and making friends, that’s a really silly thing to do. Being gorgeously aristocratic like Madame butterfly is an indispensable part of being an independent princess. For me, my tv and potted plants are my close friends.

All this does not mean that a maiden should not have friends.
(Momoko is an example that friends are approved by Novala)

It is more a warning to not try to make friends just because of loneliness.
It is not necessary for a maiden to have friends everywhere she goes.
She can feel equally good just being with herself.
Friends need to be choose properly.
In other way you can finish trusting somebody who is not worth of it.
Talking just for talking has no sense either.

Alone world does not need to be dark and full of trashes and broken toys
like Suigintou's one or abyss from Pandora Hearts.
It can be equally or rather much more bright than any other.
