Pg. 463 – 473: Dounia was at a bridge waiting for Svid to be free of Rodya. As soon as Rodya had left, Dounia went over to Svid. She tells him that she will not go any further with him. He tells her that he cannot tell her anything out in the street and he has documents to show her about Rodya. Svid tries reassuring her that the janitor will not question why they are walking together. Dounia follows Svid up to his apartment, first stopping at Sonia’s apartment; Sonia is not there. Dounia follows Svid through a few rooms. Svid shows and explains to her where he sat when he listening in on the conversation between Sonia and Rodya. When they finally get into the apartment, Dounia becomes fearful, and asks if the landlady or if anyone else is home. However, at the beginning, she is suffereing from other greater pain than the fear of the current situation. That however, changes. She hands Svid the letter that he gave her and tells him that she does not believe anything that he has said about Rodya being the murderer. The two talk about the murder, what proof Svid might have, and about Rodya. Dounia still doesn’t believe him; by now she is in a frenzied state. She tries to leave, but she can’t. She then pulls out a revolver and shots it at him. It grazes his head. She pulls the trigger again, but the gun misfires. Suddenly, she threw the gun away and then leaves, after saying that she could never love Svid.
Pg. 492-495: Dounia had been waiting in Rodya’s apartment for some time. When he arrived, she told him that she had been with Sonia. They were afraid that he had, or was going to kill himself. Rodya said that he had just stopped by to see their mother. Dounia becomes upset when Rodya tells her that he is the murderer. Before Dounia leaves, Rodya gives her the picture of his now dead fiancée. Dounia leaves, finding it very difficult to look at him for the last time. She loved him, but knows that cannot do anything for him now.
