Chapter 9 Summary

Count Olaf takes Violet and Klaus into the backyard so that they can find Sunny. They don't see her on the ground, and Olaf indicates that they should look up. Finally, they spot Sunny, who is tied up in a birdcage, dangling off of Olaf's forbidden tower. Olaf informs the children that Sunny will be dropped to her death if they try to reveal his plan. Violet promises to do anything to avoid Sunny being hurt, and Olaf gets her to agree to marry him.

After Violet agrees, Olaf tries to convince her that it won't be so terrible. After all, she will get to live, instead of being disposed of like her brother and sister. Olaf demands that Klaus return the law book, which he does begrudgingly. While Klaus does this, Violet ties her hair up with her ribbon and gazes up at the tower.
