" I won't take his presents."
" It's our own food that they've stolen from us. Look at the sardines. They're Bordeaux sardines."
She picked the things up. Hans looked at the girl with a mocking smile in his light blue eyes.
" Annette's your name, is it? A pretty name. Do you grudge your parents a little food? You said you hadn't had cheese for three months. I couldn't get any ham; I did the best I could."

I'll respect Annette as if she was my own sister."
