Prendick follows a light back to the enclosure. He staggers up to Montgomery, who has been calling his name. He seems quite anxious that Prendick went out by himself about the island, but seeing him on the verge of collapse, Montgomery sits him down and administers some brandy. Having recovered somewhat, Prendick begins to question him about what he saw in the jungle and the thing that hunted him. Montgomery, however, tells him that it must have been his imagination. Prendick is quite distraught, and Montgomery finally coerces him into taking a sleeping draft.
