Vampires weren’t naturally occurring creatures. They were curses bound in flesh, victims and perpetrators of emotions too strong to be swallowed by the grave. Blood was the medium by which their curse was perpetuated, and it was their reaction to blood that made them a curse in the first place. When Sevan thought of it like that, everything was simple. He just wished he knew what feelings had flooded through him with such intensity that they’d transformed his corpse into a monster.
