    distracted voice

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask what the phrase "distracted voice" implies.

    "Are we stopping now?" Jopale asked.
    Brace nodded. With a distracted voice, he said, "There's an emergency locker up ahead. Always stocked with knuckle-roots and barrels of sap. Or at least it's supposed to be stocked.
    His voice fell away.

    Does distracted imply that a person is upset, or does it imply that he's thinking about something else while talking?

    Brace is worried or confused (suffering conflicting emotions )and that's way he sounds so
