otherwise if anger is greater than 0:

say "It galls you to admit to yourself, but it is possible that the Queen hurt her or that she is having understandable trouble walking (though you could ask). You'd prefer to assume she is delaying on purpose.";

otherwise:

say "The Queen might indeed have hurt her — perhaps you should ask."
