Darcy should have despised himself for this act, for taking this stranger and feeding upon him, etiolating him; but he had long since reached the pinnacle of self-loathing. Indeed, he had chosen his quarry in hopes of drowning his agony in this blood.
His teeth sank easily into the thick skin of his victim’s throat, and he consumed the blood in a frenzy, not to sate a hunger but to quell an ache. Pain diminished any satisfaction in feeling the man’s pulse beat through his limbs, but he did not drink for pleasure; he drank to forget. To forget himself. To forget Elizabeth.

  2. Me too. I had to look up the technical definition of "etiolation," because it means something different than how medicine uses "etiology." It means the process of forcing a plant to grow in darkness, thus creating weak stems and if any flowers, overpollinated and pallid. The use for a vampire on a human is probably novel. I like it! Are you a plant person?
