Unformatted text preview: Caline Nagr Nasr 1 Ms. Staves English II. 1 20 October 2010 Chapter 26 With Adel ’ - e In my arms I began to drift away, slowly falling asleep to the rhythm of the Child’s tend . er breath Baffle I knew it I was asleep, once again, dreaming. But this time it didn’t see ' - - . m hke a traumatizmg mghtmare at all, it was exactly what my current situation had b ' - v . 6611- I saw myself lying 111 bed With Adele in my arms. I seemed to finally be at peace with myself. I suddenly awoke, there was a strange gust of wind that rampaged through the nursery ' ’0'“ However, Adele didn’t seem to feel it, or mind it, I reassured myself that the door was locked (up and I was safe from danger. But a second later another gust of wind blew through the room, this time assisted by a loud slamming sound, with a relatively quiet sound that suggested the locking of a door; I was sure Adele would be awakened by the thunderous sound, and yet her breath remained steady and she was still sound asleep. I was puzzled at the fact that she could still be sleeping. I quickly calmed myself, remembering what Mr. Rochester had said about being half in and half outside of a dream... I was simply still dreaming. Those five minutes felt like five hours. The lock was unlocked from a distance, which was followed by another slam. It was then that I knew it wasn’t a dream. I realized where the sound had been coming from, it was from my room. I quietly got out of bed and rushed to my the same person who struch twice. My whole we —-""_—_\ m it was dding gown was shredded into too , pieces. Nasr 2 I d218th to Mr. Rochester’s room and exclaimed, “She came again, Grace» She desm’yed my dress!” “calm down my darling, tell me, what happened?” I fervently explained the story to him and he still remained calm. “We will get you a new gown with jewels in the morning, after all you Will then be my bride, therefore accept my possessioné “Edward! Someone is after me, not fond of the idea of my becoming Mrs. Rochester, the “3‘ veil then the gown, what will they come after next, me?” g Q \ “I said calm yourselfl We will be married in the morning then we will flee to England and whoever is possibly afier you will be forgotten about and you will not be in any form of harm. Come spend the night with me I will keep you company.” Foot steps running to the third floor as fast as lightning quickly emerged. Mr. Rochester clutched my hand and got out of bed. My heart was racing, my palms were sweating, and my head was pounding. I knew he was going to see who had been threatening me with these signs, and I knew he was taking me with him... We swiftly ran through the dark halls of Thornfield, each glimpse of darkness ate at my soul like a wild animal would eat at a already murdered corpse. As we were walking up stairs to the eerie and mysterious third floor, each step taunted me and my fear escalated. Mr. Rochester became a beast, full of fury, and began pounding on a chamber door. The laugh; it began just as it always begins, and then escalated. Mr. Rochester was continually hitting the door as though his life depended on it, or mine in that matter. The laughter suddenly stopped, locks began to unlock, there must have been more than three. The first person I expected to see was the strange Grace Poole... but it wasn’t, its wasn’t at all. l g aten and the at the door happened to let out a Rochester seemed to ha ve known her, and did not at all seem surprised at who answered the door. In a s lit sec P 011d She leaped at me, but Mr. Rochester quickly grabbed hold of her. He calmly told me to o ' - g downstalrs and stay in the nursery with Adele and to remain there until he has come for me. Sol obeyed. As I sat, unable to sleep things began to make sense. The strange lady who answarcd the chamber door was out to kill who ever had stolen Mr. Rochester’s heart, I had soon learned that ave her a new she was his first devoted love and neither were able to let go of each other, so he g ,6“ home in Thornfield with Grace Poole as her personal maid, however she began to go insane and (0'0 beat Grace on account of the unrequited love.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
