It isn't like that at all, mum. She knows of a different version of father and I believe she and he were well on their way to being wed! When father decided that she should be banished to the desert, what else was I to do, but to come and bring her back? She's used to living here, I'm not going to let her feel ousted from a place she knows as home.
Well, I suppose there is some attraction there, but I've been a proper gentleman.
