25 August

Chapter 9 con't.
Lucy Westenra's Diary

25 August.--Another bad night. Mother did not seem to take to my proposal. She seems not too well herself, and doubtless she fears to worry me. I tried to keep awake, and succeeded for a while, but when the clock struck twelve it waked me from a doze, so I must have been falling asleep. There was a sort of scratching or flapping at the window, but I did not mind it, and as I remember no more, I suppose I must have fallen asleep. More bad dreams. I wish I could remember them. This morning I am horribly weak. My face is ghastly pale, and my throat pains me. It must be something wrong with my lungs, for I don't seem to be getting air enough. I shall try to cheer up when Arthur comes, or else I know he will be miserable to see me so.

I had a dream last night I was trapped in Renfield's house. It was creepy. No clue what he is supposed to look like, but in my dream he was the image of the guy who played the crazy son of the friends of Leonardo Dicrapio and Kate Winslet in Revolutionary Road.
