Am liebsten hätte er sie in seine Arme gezogen, doch das verbot ihm der Anstand. �Bleiben Sie ruhig, Fräulein Halstenbek, dafür bin ich ja da. Ihr Vater hat mir vor Wochen genaue Instruktionen übermittelt. , dachte Jaqueline, während sie sich die Tränen trocknete. Was ist an dieser Angelegenheit noch diskret?
