Lucy drags me out into the garden, and see Ray on a bench with Roman with a blood-stained face.
"How can I tell her what I can't even tell myself?" I hear him ask.
"Tell me what?" I ask, confused. Roman jumps up and takes Lucy away with him. I sit down next to Ray. "Your eye's bleeding, that looks really bad." I touch the blood on his face and feel a tingle down my arm. He looks at me and I pull away quickly.
"That's no problem, sometimes vampires do that."
"Right....." I reply, very unconvinced. "So what were you going to tell me?" There comes an awkward pause.
"I just, I want to tell you that I know how you feel. About you changing into a vampire and everything. And that I'm sorry. So sorry about what's happened."
"That's all right," I say softly, "You were forced to change me. But how would you know how I feel?"
"Because I didn't get a choice either."
