Body Paragraphs

Paragraph two:

The second way that Lily builds up to the turning point is going into the shop to buy paraffin:
' "How much is a gallon of paraffin?" Lily asked, as casually as possible.'
Paraffin is a fuel that Lily can use to start a fire and burn down her flat.

Paragraph three:

One way that this is important for the character is that it will allow her to move house:
'If you are lacking some basic amenity, like a clean water supply or electricity, it would be easier to push a transfer through.'
If her house has been burned, they will give her a new one.

Paragraph four:
Another way this is important for the character is that it will allow Sammy to forget his bad experience:
'My son's not well. He's in hospital. He had a terrible shock.'
Maybe if her son had somewhere else to stay when he comes out of hospital it would help him to forget about it.
