In this snippet of The Order of the Dragon, after Drake's initial attack and Aliandra tossed his butt across the room for it, they both calm down enough for her to realize he hasn't fed in a while and she's the nearest donor. So she offers him her blood, but she wants to make sure he'll stop. The first line is from Aliandra.
“A mature sanguivore wouldn’t let himself get in this position of being so weak.”
Drake drew himself up to his full height, bringing them eye to eye with him seated, and his expression smoothed out into regal impassiveness. He looked like a king unimpressed with the pleas of his subjects, but she wasn’t the one begging.
He isn't begging, either.“Now is not the time to sit on your high horse, Mr. MacGregor,” she remarked, oddly afraid he’d decline to feed from her. “I’ve taken the Hippocratic Oath and you’re in need of medical attention, even if it’s to prevent starvation.”
Oooh, sounds like she likes gettin' bitten! ;) Thanks for stopping by and have a great week. Happy reading! :)
