Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Chapter 7 - Incident at the Window
On Sunday, Mr. Utterson and Mr. Enfield, taking their usual walk, come across the door again. Mr. Enfield regrets not having known before that this door was connected to Dr. Jekyll's residence. They step into the courtyard to see if they can catch a sight of Dr. Jekyll. Mr. Utterson is surprised to find Dr. Jekyll at the window. They exchange polite conversation. Mr. Utterson invites the doctor to join them for a walk. The doctor expresses remorse for not being able to go out, or even invite them in. In the middle of his reply, Dr. Jekyll's smile suddenly turns into something inexplicable. The window is promptly shut. Mr. Utterson and Mr. Enfield, both horrified, leave without a word. When they reach another neighborhood, Mr. Utterson finally breaks the silence. "God forgive us, God forgive us," is all he can utter. Mr. Enfield just nods his head in silence and walks on.
