Two women were talking. Mrs X said that she has come back home unexpectedly and probably that's why her servant is not home. Mrs Y said that she and her mother have just come back from Jamaica.
Mrs Y said to Mrs X:
Coming back suddenly,’ she said, in a kind but casual way,‘if you want bread or milk or anything, we ’ve plenty.’
Mrs X said: Thank you.
I'm not sure how to interpret "coming back suddenly" here? Does it mean "I'll come back quickly if you want some bread or milk from us"?
Or maybe: Because you came back suddenly we can give you some bread and milk.
