The Story Continued by Marian Halcombe

  • It's been six months since Laura and Marian saw each other.
  • Marian is headed to Sir Percival's pad, Blackwater Park, to live with him and Laura. She's not super-pleased.

  • Marian is very nervous about seeing Laura again, but also excited.
  • Mrs. Vesey goes with Marian as far as London and gets dropped off there.
  • Marian worries about how Sir Percival is treating Laura.
  • Finally Marian arrives at Blackwater, which is very imposing and not at all inviting.
  • Marian actually beats the honeymooners home, so she'll have to wait to see Laura.
  • That night she discovers a dying dog, which dies a very sad death.
  • A servant girl says it's Mrs. Catherick's dog.
  • Mrs. Catherick came to see Sir Percival about Anne, who is still missing.
  • Marian settles in for the night in the creepy house.
