“Will it hurt?” Her voice revealed curiosity, not fear.
“You’ve been bitten before. You know the answer.”
“I meant, is there a way for it not to hurt?”

She shook her head. “I don’t know. I guess I’m just nervous.”
He gripped her chin in his hand, looked into her eyes. “Yes or no. May I take your blood?”
