The Three Musketeers Chapter Thirty-Six: Dream of Vengeance Summary

  • Milady continues to wait for a visit from D’Artagnan, but none is forthcoming. Finally, she sends him a note asking him to come visit.
  • D’Artagnan notes that the worse the Comte’s behavior is, the more he (D’Artagnan) rises in Milady’s estimation.
  • He convinces himself it would be rude to refuse the invitation. Kitty gets worried again and D’Artagnan tells her that he will not, under any circumstance, fall in love with Milady.
  • At nine o’clock, he shows up at Milady’s. She looks like she’s been crying.
  • Soon, however, D’Artagnan is lured by her beauty and he’s back to being in love.
  • He declares his love for her. He hopes she will love him back. He declares he would do anything for her, and Milady requests that he kill the Comte de Wardes.

  • Milady tells him to come back at eleven.
  • He resolves to be careful.
