While we were on the stairs I told him about Peter and my friendship. Daddy didn’t reply right away and then he said, “I think you must be careful, Anne. We live so close together here.” On Sunday morning he called me and we talked about it again. “Anne, I have thought about what you said.

You see each other 24 hours a day—in fact all the time.” Then on Friday he showed he was not pleased with me. He had thought that after our talk on Sunday I would not go upstairs every evening. But I did not agree, so I continued to talk to Peter every evening.
