精彩书摘I felt an inexpressible relief, a soothing conviction of protection and security, when I knew that there was a stranger in the room, an individual not belonging to Gateshead, and not related to Mrs. Reed. Turning from Bessie （though her presence was far less obnoxious to me than that of Abbot, for instance, would have been）, I scrutinized the face of the gentleman: I knew him; it was Mr. Lloyd, an apothecary, sometimes called in by Mrs. Reed when the servants were ailing: for herself and the children she employed a physician.
\"Well, who am I？ \" he asked.
I pronounced his name, offering him at the same time my hand: he took it, smiling and saying, \"We shall do very well by-and-by.\" Then he laid rne down, and addressing Bessie, charged her to be very careful that I was not disturbed during the night. Having given some further directions, and intimates that he should call again the next day, he departed; to my grief: I felt so sheltered and befriended while he sat in the chair near rny pillow' ; and as he closed the door after him, all the room darkened and my heart again sank: inexpressible sadness weighed it down.
