The officer who shouted at her through the door, only curtly nodded in greeting and went inside. Others followed him. When at last one closed the door, he asked, looking up at her sternly:
"Are you Juliana?"
"Yes I am." She replied calmly lip service, but slightly ahead nervously flinched backwards.
Constable nodded and looked around the room. Then he looked back at her and asked further:
"You're alone, do you?"
"Yes, at the moment, yes. Parents went to the marketplace. "
"Hey, it seems to me, or that girl looks sick?" Said one of the men.
