This is seen as a homosexual moment and perhaps a real life fantasy showing Stoker’s longing for a man to want him. After this traumatizing event Jonathan woke up in his bedroom. At first, Jonathan thought it was a dream; he came to conclusions that Count Dracula had undressed him and put him to bed. When Jonathan says, “To be sure, there were certain small evidences, such as that my clothes were folded and laid by in a manner which is not my habit” (Stoker 44; ch. 4).

He incorporated this ellipse intentionally to depict an event has taken place during the encounter with Mckee. Thereupon, Nick was found to be by Mckee’s bed, who was also was in his undergarments showing Nick his portfolio.

In the novel Romeo and Juliet, there are characters that have structural roles to play. These characters have a deeper and more significant meaning to the story than how they are literally interpreted by the reader. One of these character is Mercutio, a blood relative of the Prince and a close friend of Romeo.
