I am interested in every character you have mentioned, more or less

Catherine loved it too: but she said it sounded sweetest at the top of the steps, and she went up in the dark: I followed. She made no stay at the stairs-head, but mounted farther, to the garret where Heathcliff was confined, and called him. He stubbornly declined answering for a while: she persevered, and finally persuaded him to hold communion with her through the boards. I let the poor things converse unmolested, till I supposed the songs were going to cease, and the singers to get some refreshment: then I clambered up the ladder to warn her. Instead of finding her outside, I heard her voice within. The little monkey had crept by the skylight of one garret, along the roof, into the skylight of the other, and it was with the utmost difficulty I could coax her out again. When she did come, Heathcliff came with her, and she insisted that I should take him into the kitchen, as my fellow-servant had gone to a neighbours, to be removed from the sound of our “devils psalmody,” as it pleased him to call it. I told them I intended by no means to encourage their tricks: but as the prisoner had never broken his fast since yesterdays dinner, I would wink at his cheating Mr. He went down: I set him a stool by the fire, and offered him a quantity of good things: but he was sick and could eat little, and my attempts to entertain him were thrown away. He leant his two elbows on his knees, and his chin on his hands, and remained rapt in dumb meditation. On my inquiring the subject of his thoughts, he answered gravely-“Im trying to settle how I shall pay Hindley back. I dont care how long I wait, if I can only do it at last. I hope he will not die before I do!”

Hindley that once

“No, God wont have the satisfaction that I shall,” he returned. “I only wish I knew the best way! Let me alone, and Ill plan it out: while Im thinking of that I dont feel pain.”

But, Mr. Lockwood, I forget these tales cannot divert you. Im annoyed how I should dream of chattering on at such a rate; and your gruel cold, and you nodding for bed! I could have told Heathcliffs history, all that you need hear, in half a dozen words.

Thus interrupting herself, the housekeeper rose, and proceeded to lay aside her sewing; but I felt incapable of moving from the hearth, and I was very far from nodding. “Sit still, Mrs. Dean,” I cried; “do sit still another half-hour. Youve done just right to tell the story leisurely. That is the method I like; and you must finish it in the same style. ”

“No matter-Im not accustomed to go to bed in the long hours. One or two is early enough for a person who lies till ten.”

“You shouldnt lie till ten. Theres the very prime of the morning gone long before that time. A person who has not done one-half his days work by ten oclock, runs a chance of leaving the other half undone.”

“Nevertheless, Mrs. Dean, resume your chair; because to-morrow I intend lengthening the night till afternoon. I prognosticate for myself an obstinate cold, at least.”

“I hope not, sir. Well, you must allow me to leap over some three years; during that space Mrs. Earnshaw-”
