From Inside the Grey House:
It was close to sunrise. Ben and one of Vincent’s humans had been taking care of Natalia for a full day. Ben had been able to give Natalia plenty of water but no food. She wasn’t awake enough for that. He was attempting to give her more water when someone knocked on the door. Joseph came in not waiting for an answer. His shirt and pants were wrinkled, and his pant cuffs were caked in dirt and dust.
“Don’t come closer.” Ben pointed to his boss’s dirt covered pants. “An infection could kill her.”
