2002 exam

I had long dreams.The nightmare began the moment I closed my eyes:Apretty lady with soft, wave, black hair braided and hanging to her waist,stepped out of the shadows and whispered to me,'you will not forget this day easily,Phyllisia.You will not.'
'I shall.I shall.'
what is the writer trying to suggest about phllisia's character when she uses the phrase "stepped out of the shadows and whispered to me"

the phrase "stepped out of the shadows" suggests something eerie about this woman. For Phyllisia's character, it suggests that she is a timid person who is easily frightened and unsure of herself and pepole she comes into contact with.

That is my reading. Maybe I am out of sync like Phyllisia!
