The next morning, the mouse wakes up to find that he has fallen asleep in his dream. He wonders how he can fall asleep in such a strange situation, and wonders why he hasn't stopped dreaming. The mouse tells him that he will enter his dream tonight, and that no matter what he dreams, he will know that he is related to the mouse. He tells the mouse that his dream was "pitch black" and that he didn't have a dream of anything, but that he did dream of blackie, who was killed by a "bloody yama." The mouse wonders if this is the same "blue butterfly" that killed the blackie in his previous dream, or if it is the "red butterflies" that he dreamed of. He concludes that the blue butterfly is the one that followed them that day, and the red butterfly is one of the two that follows them.
