sigh… / Haaa…
Mr. Hyung Woo...
Were you involved in a fight?
Did something happen over the weekend?
No, I got hit.
Hit?! Oh, it’s about a woman!
What... You had a lover?
No, not particularly...
Look at his face~It is, he has one! He looks so happy even after being hit~
Mr. Hyung Woo! Is it really your girlfriend?
Two resampling requests…| I think I’ll have to start from scratch for this one.
It’d be better to visit the market first.
I’ll be outside for work outside the office.
I’ll be back soon.
Even if my testicle friend is a vampire...Monday still comes.
Even if my childhood friend is a vampire...Monday still comes.
It doesn’t feel realistic…
But, there is one thing that I cannot ignore.
Kim Hyung Woo is…
Taking a shower…
I have to process out what is what in my head… / I have to organize what’s on my mind...
But I can’t think with an empty stomach...
rattle rattle rattle
I wasn’t of thinking making this much.
Lee Min Hoon.
He didn’t call me with his voice.
But I could hear him.
thump thump thump
You heard it, right?
Can you believe me now?
I can hear his heartbeat.
I can feel all of my nerves focusing on him.
Sorry…| For dragging you in…
What, Aren’t you gonna eat?
Are you going to work on an empty stomach?
Ah, no....I’m gonna eat.
But… Is that all? You don’t have anything more to ask?
Do I still have to be the one to ask you?
No! I will explain everything!
Lee Min Hoon has become Kim Hyung Woo’s..
I didn’t become a vampire like you?
But you’re a halfie. A vampire made for another vampire.
Vampires gain life energy from blood.
That is why, in order to have a constant source of blood, the provider of blood also gains immortality.
Of course, it would be much easier to just drink the blood out of multiple individuals instead of having to make the provider immortal. But unfortunately, they can't drink the blood unless it fits their body.
The… fitting blood?
Yup. This is a matter of life energy, so it's even more complicated than dealing with blood types.
What do you mean by life energy?
It is energy needed to live as a functioning living being, | for the price of living as an immortal.
If you don't get enough of it, you can't stand straight under the sun... | and you suffer from never ending thirst. / and you are always thirsty.
So, are you saying that my blood is the right fit for you? How do you know that?
Of course I do, by the fragrance or the pulsing of your heartbeat. These are just simple instincts.
Then you should have said so from the start~
I would have helped you.
Is a declaration of eternal life with me.
It means for you to stay with me
for the rest of my eternal solitude.
That’s why I said that I was sorry.
Well, it’s no use crying over spilt milk. / Well, you can’t turn back anymore.
For now, try drinking it.
Then you should be able to stand straight under the sun.
