War at the table (3)

"About time," Priscilla said due to the fact she was the only one seated at the table. "How much longer were you all going to make me wait? I'm sure everyone here was taught proper manners not to leave anyone alone at a table by themselves. Well," she briefly glanced at Alessandra. "I would hope so." 

"We have things to do. That's why you should not unexpectedly arrive at someone's house, asking to get in. Clearly, you weren't taught manners in that area," Edgar replied. 

"Settle down. There is no need to get hostile so early. It was wrong of us to leave your mother by the table all alone," Edmund stated. He sat down to the left of Priscilla.

"Alessandra and I left you alone a while ago. What were you doing for you to arrive at the table at the same time as us, father? What were you snooping around for? You'd be a fool to think I leave important things in the open," Edgar spoke as he helped Alessandra to her seat.
