"I've set dinner on the dining-room sideboard at six. I clear up in the morning. I have breakfast for you at nine. I don't wait on people! I don't stay after I set out the dinner, not after it begins to get dark. I leave before the dark comes."

"We live in town. Nine miles away."

"Yes..."

"So there won't be anyone around if you need help."

"I understand."

"We couldn't hear you in the night."

"I know..."

"In the night! In the dark!"
