In Chapter Two,  Pip's belief that Magwitch will follow through on his threats are evident in the fact that he steals food at home. Knowing he's afraid of his sister...... he's more afraid of the convict. The second meeting of Pip and the convict is much more civil and sympathetic than the first. Pip even puts away his fear to say, "I am glad you enjoy it," as the convict eats. Since he stole the food and file, Pip is now the convict's partner in crime and feels closer to the man.
