7 Heathcliff returns
1783 Well, sir, when Miss Catherine became Mrs Linton，and we went to live at Thrushcross Grange, I must say I was surprised and pleased by her behaviour. She showed great fondness for her husband, and for his sister, Isabella. He, of course, was very anxious that no one should disobey her, or make her angry. If she was depressed for a time, he blamed it on the illness she had had, and was sympathetic. But for most of the time, I believe they shared a deep and growing love for each other.
eg: He had a fondness for Whiskey.
disobey 违反、不服从 由否定前缀dis-和obey（服从、听从）组成
eg: He disobeyed his supervisor and was fired.
Unfortunately this happiness did not last. One evening I was bringing in a basket of apples from the garden, when a voice behind me said, 'Ellen，is that you? '
It was a deep, rather unusual voice. I turned, to see a tall, dark man in the shadow near the kitchen door.
'Don't you know me?' he asked,'Look，I'm not a stranger!'
'What!' I cried in surprise, for it had been four years since he disappeared. 'Heathcliff！Is it really you?'
'Yes,' he replied, looking up at the windows of the house. 'Are they at home? Where is she? Tell me, Ellen! I must speak to her!'
'I'm not sure if you should see her,' I hesitated. 'Will the shock be too much for her?'
eg: He hesitated and asked me if he could sit near me.
'Go and tell her I'm here, Ellen!' he said impatiently. 'Don't make me suffer like this!'
eg: He was impatiently waiting ouside the office.
I left him at the door, and went upstairs to find Mr and Mrs Linton. They were sitting quietly together, looking out over the peaceful valley. The room, and the view, and the two people, seemed so calm that I did not want to disturb them. But I had to deliver my message.
eg: Please don't disturb us when we are working.
'A man wants to see you, madam,' I muttered.
'I'll go downstairs and see him then,' replied Catherine, 'Bring the tea up, Ellen, while I'm away.' She left the room.
'Who is it, Ellen?' asked Mr Edgar.
'It's that Heathcliff, sir.You remember, he used to live at Wuthering Heights.'
