She had felt the fool when she realized he had noticed how chilled she still was. Now she just hoped she hadn't made him feel guilty in how she had tried to make sure that he was taken care of first. After he threw the blanket from her sofa over her shoulders, she clutched the ends and pulled them closer together and gave him a small appreciative smile. Then she noticed how he was looking at her. It frightened her. Her heart started racing and pounding, her breath hitched as he rubbed his hands on her shoulders, she wanted to take a step back from him, but fear stopped her. She didn't understand what was was happening to her.
His arms pressed onto hers and she was frozen. “This may hurt if you don't relax, but I will try to be gentle,” she heard him say. She didn't relax, she couldn't, and it hurt like... well, hell. When his teeth sank into her neck, breaking the skin she gasped and cried out sharply in pain. Too much in shock to try to get away, at least at first. A sob escaped her lips as she tried to move away, only to feel his arms wrap around her, holding her against him securely.
After a few moments of struggling, Dana started to feel too weak, even then she tried to struggle against him, though it was very weak. Soon though, she couldn't force her muscles to obey her. Tired, she was so sleepy. She felt impossibly cold, and numb. In the dim recesses of her fading consciousness, she realized how foolish she'd been, and that he was a nightmarish creature from any number of books she used to read behind the backs of her parents. Books she read without their strict approval. A weak chuckle bubbled in her throat as she thought, with irony, that it may have been a good thing she did that. Otherwise, she wouldn't have realized that she was dying tonight.
She had fallen limp in his arms moments ago, and now she was almost as still as death. He hadn't drained her yet, but the cold, the exertion, not having had anything to eat since that morning, and now the blood loss, it all took its toll on her, and she lost all consciousness. Possibly sooner than most, would have.
