Fantine & Cosette

[Just before.]

Cosette knocks on her mother's door.

If there's no answer, she'll let herself in. But perhaps her mother is in already.

Fantine is startled into a laugh. "All right, my dear, all right. You may say I'm good, and I won't contradict you! I--I've always tried to be. And I know God forgives us all, and I always tried to keep you safe and happy, and look, here you are, married to a good man, and everything so nice for you! And now you can be even happier, now that M. Madeleine is back with you and will get well soon. And I can see you whenever you come here, and there's nothing to keep us apart. So God has answered my prayers and forgiven all my sins, and he must be smiling down on both of us."

And now there are tears in Fantine's eyes, as she holds Cosette close to her. "My darling little girl--no, not little anymore. All grown and married now, and taking care of your father, and so good and kind."

"Oh, how lovely!" Fantine smiles. "Then you can both visit M. Madeleine, and me, too! When can I meet him?"

Fantine sees the unspoken problem: Marius can't yet bear the introduction to a dead mother-in-law, on top of all the surprises of the day. Let alone learning she's not the sort of mother-in-law a baron should have.

And she doesn't want to make any problems for Cosette. "Of course, darling." She smiles. "Whenever you'd like, then."
