Francis can't help but feel rather ashamed of himself, for the effect he's clearly had on the poor girl. He didn't expect her to shrink away quite so much, and he raises his hands a little in a conciliatory kind of way, setting his half-finished coffee aside and getting to his feet. "Sorry, miss, I didn't mean to startle you. I only wanted to ask... are you lodging here, as well, or do you work here?"
Might as well be clear on that from the start. He doubts she works here - she seems awfully young for that, even for a place as provincial as this - but she could easily be the landlord's daughter, or the daughter of some other permanent resident, in which case she's liable to give a very different answer to the question he has.
