Felicity is unlike any human Cain has known before. She treats him as an equal, a man worthy of friendship, respect and even… love. She embodies qualities of gentleness and loving trust that he has never found among his own kind. This makes her far more desirable to him than any creature of darkness could ever be. Is her trust in him only the foolishness of a young girl in love, unjustified? |
Cain is all too conscious of the fact that the venom of his bite would give him a connection to her unequaled by any other and protect her from hostile vampires… but it would give him a measure of psychic control over her as well. He could make Felicity into a vampire, to accompany him in his quest to help others and abate his loneliness. But is his desire for companionship worth the loss of her life?
