Mina awakes in the middle of the night to find Lucy missing, and nowhere in the house. Mina rushes with a heavy shawl to find Lucy in her nightclothes reclining in their favorite seat in the churchyard, a shadowy figure bending over her. By the time Mina gains entrance to the churchyard, Lucy is alone. Mina wraps Lucy in the shawl, and fears that in her haste, she may have pricked Lucy with a safety pin, for she sees Lucy’s throat is bleeding. Mina awakens Lucy and the women walk home together. Lucy swears Mina to secrecy about the events of the evening, fearing the effect it might have on her ailing mother.
Mina worries about the wound that she inflicted upon Lucy, who seems more vibrant than she had done of late. Lucy is unconcerned. They and Lucy’s mother spend a pleasant day together, picnicking and enjoying some music on the terrace. As Mina makes her daily preparations for Lucy’s sleepwalking, she expects it to be a peaceful night.
