David's mother implores Peggotty to stay with her, and Peggotty vows that she will. David notices his  mother's failing health — "her hand . . . so thin and white" — and her changed manner, "anxious and  fluttered." But the familiar scene lulls away his anxiety, and he launches into stories about all that has  happened. The Murdstones return late that evening, and in the morning David apologizes to his stepfather for  having been so disrespectful as to bite his hand during their last meeting. Later, however, David is  set upon by Miss Murdstone for picking up his baby brother, and his mother is reprimanded for  comparing the appearance of her two boys. David feels that he makes everyone, even his mother,  uncomfortable with his presence, so he begins spending his evenings with Peggotty in the kitchen.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
