I was very upset to see my sister like that. For a moment I even blamed myself.
Orlick "had no liking for me" (Dickens 2003, p. 153). He tried convincing me there was a devil living inside the forge. He even told me that it was necessary to build the fire with a live boy.
One day I asked Joe for a holiday and Orlick grabbed a hot bar and held it up to me "as if he were going to run it through my body" (Dickens 2003 , p. 153). Joe agreed for everyone to take the half day to resolve the conflict.
