Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master Imogen travels pretending to be a boy. As her health deteriorates, Belarius suggests that she may rest in their cave while they go hunting, but Arvirargus offers to stay with her as a gesture of support. Imogen answers that having company is not a comfort when you are not in the mood to appreciate it.
