Count Petofi causes Charity to permanently believe she is Pansy Faye.

Synopsis Edit

Collinwood before the turn of the century. For many months Quentin Collins has managed to keep his terrible secret from all but a handful of people. Now one of these, a young woman who has come to live at Collinwood, has become determined to expose Quentin to the world. But on this night a third party has intervened, the mysterious Count Petofi.

Charity tries to order Petofi from the house, but he touches her cheek with his hand, taking away her ability to speak. He causes her to see a vision of Magda predicting a violent end. In the vision, Aristede arrives and is quickly strangled by an unseen assailant. Unable to see the vision himself, he forces Charity to look again, and describe everything she sees. She sees the same man chop off Petofi's hand. Startled by her vision, Petofi tells her she shall soon begin a new life and tells her to enjoy it, before leaving.

Charity is being possessed by Pansy Faye again. Quentin wonders what Charity saw in her vision. Back at the Mill Petofi finds Aristede alive. They leave Barnabas unguarded. They go to the graveyard and dig up the grave of Abraham Howell.

Quentin says that whatever happened at Collinwood has scared Petofi and that this is their chance to free Barnabas. Quentin says he saw a face at the window, and when they open the door, they find a note attached with a knife. The note says, "between life and death there is not room for a flea to jump."
