Worrying about a friend

Being reassured

In the third sentence, Annabelle’s mother tries to reassure her.

“Nor do I, Annabelle. But Constable Oleska is a fair man. I don’t think he’ll do anything but talk for now.”

First she agrees with Annabelle’s defense, then makes a reassuring observation (the constable is fair) and expands a little on the point.

“I know. But the mayor will understand. Luo’s stolen food from everyone at some point.”

"Her labour would be welcome. And Queenie is reasonable. She knows well the value of Kezia, even with her unusual ways.”
