    Summary

    She looked at him and sighed through her nose, running the pad of her thumb along the rigid edge of the bottle cap in her hand. She knew, although she wouldn’t admit it, that she wasn’t only convincing him of his humanity. She was convincing herself. Deep inside her she was finding it so morally wrong to have a stupid, juvenile, but warm and welcome crush on a robot.

    Summary

    Patrick turned around to face Pete, and Pete started talking. "You can disappear into thin air. You can get into someone's head and make them do things. You rarely leave your basement. And, apparently, unless someone slipped acid into my drink tonight, you drink blood." Pete stopped in front of Patrick, who wore an expression like a caged animal. "Are you a motherfucking vampire?"

    Pete watched Patrick swallow. "There's no such thing as vampires," he finally answered, his voice shaky.
