Hester saw Chillingworth as a demon..... evil. She was suspicious of his every move and frightened of what he might do next. She hates him because he betrayed her..... he's left her on her own and returned to jusdge her.

"Yes, I hate him!" repeated Hester more bitterly than before. "He betrayed me! He has done me worse wrong than I did him!"
