A

The story begins in 1801. Mr Lockwood has rented a house in Yorkshire, so he goes to visit his new landlord, Mr Heathcliff, at his house on the moors (旷野) nearby, Wuthering Heights. He is not welcomed and the house is full of frightening dogs, but he decides to return the following afternoon, although a snowstorm is beginning.

This time he is met by an old servant, Joseph, and a beautiful young woman. He thinks she is Heathcliff’s wife, but she does not invite him to tea, and when Heathcliff comes in, ask s his permission before pouring Lockwood a cup. When Lockwood mistakes her for Heathcliff’s wife, he is told she is his daughter-in-law, so he supposes she is married to a rough young man who has come in and is sitting silently in the background. This makes the young man angry, and Heathcliff says he is not his son. No one makes the mystery clear, so Lockwood asks for help to find the way home. Since no one will do anything for him, he takes a lantern to light his way over the moors but is attacked by the dogs. Heathcliff just laughs, but the maid Zillah, rescues him and puts him in a bedroom in the house without telling her master.

Safeburn

Planning a home demands great care. The fireplace should be distinctive (有特色) and elegant (美观), with a fire that looks like a fire, giving your family the warmth and protection they need.

Every year 7,000 people die in fires in Britain, and hundreds of them are little children. Thousands more are disfigured (毁容) for life.

When you choose a fire, choose Safeburn. It gives you the atmosphere of home comfort you are looking for, and sets your mind at rest.
