Even though Jo is trying to establish independence here I think it would be safe to say that she actually likes the fact that someone cares enough to not let her walk a few hundred feet, alone, at night. It’s the kind of way people express care in a subtle way. Just like supporting an artist on a site like Patreon, or subscribestar. Because artists are goofy and can’t be left to their own devices.
