Come home, dear, come. Oh, I've found him! Thank gracious goodness heavens, I've found him!
I haven't any sister or father or mother. I'm an orphan; I live at Pentonville. Come home to your poor mother, you young dog! I don't know them!
Help, help! What books are these? You've been a-stealin' 'em, have you? Give 'em here! Weak already, stupefied by the blows and the suddenness of the attack, terrified by the brutality of the man- who was none other than Bill Sikes, the roughest of all Fagin's pupils- what could one poor child do?
Darkness had set in; it was a low neighbourhood; resistance was useless. Sikes and Nancy hurried the boy on between them through courts and alleys till, once more, he was within the dreadful house where the Dodger had first brought him. Long after the gas-lamps were lighted, Mr. Brownlow sat waiting in his parlour. The servant had run up the street twenty times to see if there were any traces of Oliver. The housekeeper had waited anxiously at the open door. But no Oliver returned.
Bill Sikes having an important house-breaking engagement with his fellow robber, Mr. Toby Crackit, at Shepperton, decided that Oliver must accompany him. It was a detached house, and the night was dark as pitch when Sikes and Crackit, dragging Oliver along, climbed the wall and approached a narrow, shuttered window. In vain Oliver implored them to let him go. Hardly had Oliver advanced a few yards before Sikes called out, "Back!
The cry was repeated- a light appeared- a vision of two terrified, half-dressed men at the top of the stairs swam before his eyes- a flash- a loud noise- and he staggered back.
Sikes got him out of the window before the smoke cleared away, and fired his pistol after the men, who were already in retreat. They've hit him.
The boy is bleeding. And then the noises grew confused in the distance, and Oliver saw and heard no more.
Sikes, finding the chase too hot, was compelled to leave Oliver in a ditch and make his escape with his friend Crackit.
It was morning when Oliver awoke. His left arm was rudely bandaged in a shawl, and the bandage was saturated with blood. Weak and dizzy, he yet felt that if he remained where he was he would surely die, and so he staggered to his feet.
The only house in sight was the one he had entered a few hours earlier, and he bent his steps towards it. He pushed against the garden-gate- it was unlocked.
He tottered across the lawn, climbed the steps, knocked faintly at the door, and, his whole strength failing him, sank down against the little portico. Giles, the butler and general steward of the house, who had fired the shot and led the pursuit, was just explaining the exciting events of the night to his fellow-servants of the kitchen when Oliver's knock was heard. With considerable reluctance the door was opened, and then the group, peeping timorously over each other's shoulders, beheld no more formidable object than poor little Oliver Twist, speechless and exhausted.
