having so many people in a small place makes the mood a bit cramped.
Tone and Mood
they had a generous tone, letting a bunch of extra people stay with them so that no one would be caught if they coululd help it.
overall what was going on at the time made the tone a bit dark and depressing.
They had a sad mood, because they would find out their friends had not made it.
already being low on food and then sharing it with a whole household.I would consider their mood to be hungry.
a mood was careful, they had to be careful not to make any noise during the day.
they were scared about what might happen to them if they were caught.
