Cosette had guessed, from things her father and mother haven't said, from her mother's allusions to
that wicked inspector
and the mysterious history that her father and Javert have, that Fantine might have some kind of history of unpleasant conflict with him too. But she hadn't expected anything like
. She starts upright in her mother's grasp, wide-eyed, shocked out of her tears.
She doesn't know whether to argue or to soothe her. She falls back on instinct, and draws closer to stroke her mother's hair. "Mother, no, it's not that at all! You're quite safe, Papa's quite safe, M. Javert did nothing of the sort, everyone will be quite well, only be easy."
