You didn't notice because the other characters call Lythande "he / him" in a few places, so the fact that the narrator doesn't use pronouns doesn't stand out.
At least, I didn't notice until the very last sentence, even though the entire story revolves around her having a secret and people trying to figure out what the secret is. Of course, I was lot younger back then...
