    Default grammar???

    Interesting use of a comma in this sentence:

    "The...human," Snail concluded, with a slow sigh of relief.

    Why the comma after human and not a period.
    And why relief???? Dragonfly had not done anything yet!
    Does this sentence really belong here?
    The only token I found was SQUAT!!!

    I think he was relieved to have finished his sentence. I also think that the first comma is correct & the second one is somewhat iffy.
