Dracula – Part 10 – Jonathan Harker’s Journal

May 18th, I went down to look at that room again in daylight, because I must know the truth. When I got to the doorway at the top of the stairs, it was closed. It had been so forcibly shut that part of the wooden doorframe was splintered. I could see that the door hadContinue reading “Dracula – Part 10 – Jonathan Harker’s Journal”

Later – The Morning of May 16th, God, please preserve my sanity. Safety and the assurance of safety are things that I cannot even hope to wish for anymore.

Dracula – 4 – Jonathan Harker’s Journal

Chapter 2 May 5th (continued), I must have been asleep, for sure. If I had been fully awake, I would have noticed such a remarkable place approaching.
