Anne longs to be a better friend to Peter and ease his loneliness. She’s very motherly and wants desperately for him to be happy. She also attributes a lot of thoughts and feelings to him and it’s not clear if they’re really in his mind or not.
Anne is greatly enjoying the challenge of trying to draw Peter out (and get him to fall in love with her).
Anne now finds all of Peter’s awkwardness and shyness to be adorable.
