Quandary Resolution 310
videlicet, shill, temerarious, Brobdingnagian
Not wishing to be seen as a shill for the pro-prosecution lobby, Fin refused their offer of expenses – he paid for the dinner with Mrs. Sorensen out of his own pocket and secured her trust with quiet condolences, until finally through her tears she told him of the way Linus and Anna looked up to Miss Peterson, how she had loomed in their imaginations, at home and at school, as some Brobdingnagian figure, a giant among them, so that when Miss Peterson made the temerarious – no, the foolish, incredible – oh, incomprehensible! decision to try to take the children home in those conditions - videlicet the blizzard, the biting winds, the heart-stopping cold – they followed her without hesitation, their trusting hands locked in the treacherous grip of the newly appointed fifteen-year-old assistant schoolmistress.
