"Why--"

He seems so earnest, and he's such a sweet squirrel -- he's been nothing but polite and kind and generous, bringing them to his house, giving them tea and cookies -- he can't be lying, can he? He seems so sincere, so indignant. And to be judged a criminal -- even if he did do it, to face that stigma all his days -- and especially if he truly is innocent--

It's that memory that puts an extra warmth in her voice and firms her chin with determination, when she cries, "Why, of course you wouldn't! You've said so and I believe you, M. Aloysius. You've said it and they ought to believe it's so."

She doesn't look at Marius, because -- because, well, she's looking at the squirrel, that's all.
