From The Grey House:
“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?”
“I will be piercing your skin with my fangs, Natalia. How would it not 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?”
Natalia looked deep into the vampire’s eyes and knew he would listen to her word on this. She was starting to understand him better. She felt trust grow as they stared at each other. Natalia nodded. “Yes.”
