英会話無料教材・見違えるヒースクリフ
 ヒースクリフは、大変身をとげていた。海賊に誘拐されたが、実は、父が中国の皇帝で、母はインドの女王だった。その遺産を相続したのだと。以前キャッシーが冗談めかしに言っていたことが、本当だった。

 
EDGAR Well,Heathcliff...
HEATHCLIFF Mr.Linton.
EDGAR How are you?
HEATHCLIFF Hello,Cathy. I remember this room.
EDGAR Come in, Heathcliff. Sit by the fire. You'll have a whisky?
HEATHCLIFF No,thank you.
EDGAR Well,I've never seen such a change in a man, Heathcliff.I wouldn't have known you.You seem to have prospered since our last meeting.
HEATHCLIFF Somewhat.
CATHY Ellen said you'd been to America.
HEATHCLIFF Yes.
CATHY We all wondered where you went.
EDGAR Have you met my sister, Heathcliff,Miss Linton? .
HEATHCLIFF Miss Linton
EDGAR Well,what brought about this amazing transformation? Did you discover a gold mine in the New World, or perhaps you fell heir to a fortune?
HEATHCLIFF The truth is, I remembered that my father was an emperor of China, and my mother was an Indian queen, and I went out and claimed my        inheritance.It all turned out just as you once suspected, Cathy. That I had been kidnapped by wicked sailors and brought to England, that I was of noble birth.
