I turned and walked towards the window and stood looking out for a few minutes. When I turned round the room was empty. I went up to the studio, but again I could not paint. The pale, unhappy face of Viola came between me and the picture. To Veronica I hardly spoke. Her beauty neither attracted nor even pleased me.
I told him about all those things he had been doing, and begged him to be more considerate and stop making people unhappy. I said I knew he did not mean any harm, but that he ought to stop and consider the possible consequences of a thing before launching it in that impulsive and random way of his; then he would not make so much trouble.

I'm sure she does care about you a great deal. Her words reminded Bridget of what had happened that very afternoon. Perhaps what Celestina said was true: mamma had pressed her hand when she said she was sorry.
