(This is from Young Goodman Brown)

What can be inferred about the companion's character in lines 8 and 9?

"Faith kept me back awhile," replied the young man, with a tremor in his voice, caused by the sudden appearance of his companion, though not wholly expected."

He is annoying to Goodman Brown.
He is a stranger to Goodman Brown.
Goodman Brown knows him.
Goodman Brown angers him.

My guess would be "Goodman Brown knows him" because he said, "not wholly unexpected," meaning he wasn't surprised when he saw him.
