Chapter 3 (Pg. 45-47)

Dracula's strange warning scared Johnathan at the time. The more Johnathan thought about it, the more he became anxious, but also intrigued. Johnathan disobeys The Count's orders and proceeds to enter all of the rooms of the castle. He becomes tired and ends up falling asleep in one of the rooms. He then wakes up and finds himself surrounded by three beautiful women. Johnathan couldn't believe what he was seeing. He thought it was all a dream. The women come closer to Johnathan and stared in a daze. The women had very unique features. Two of them were dark and had high aquiline noses like Dracula, with great dark piercing eyes that look like the moon. The other woman was fair looking with golden hair and eyes like pale sapphires. The last one look familiar to Johnathan, but he couldn't remember. All three women have sharp white teeth and red voluptuous lips. Johnathan felt very uneasy. He felt a deep evil inside them. One of the ladies came even closer to Johnathan. She became very seductive; got on her knees and bent over Johnathan. Johnathan feels a thrilling yet repulsive sensation. She arches her necks and begins to lick her lips like an animal. She comes closer to Johnathan face where their lips can almost touch. She lowers herself down to Johnathan's throat. As Johnathan is in complete estacy, The Count interrupts this little episode between the three women and Johnathan. Dracula scolds the ladies and tell them to wait until he is done with him. As confused as Johnathan is, he just becomes even more confused. The three women run back to where they were and Johnathan goes back to being unconscious.

  1. This was a great scene, because i think Jonathan is finally starting to get a sense of who Count Dracula really is and that he has to get out of there ASAP.

  2. It's interesting how many times in this novel, characters will comment on something as bad, and then also acknowledge that it is also sexual. As in the case with Jonathan being both repulsed and wanting of the vampire women, the novel shows that Victorian Era England had a weird view of sex. For them it was a taboo subject, and most people tried to repress their sexuality.

  4. This isn't bad, Sabrina, but Jonathan doesn't write in the third person ;-)
