“No man knows till he experiences it, what it is like to feel his own life-blood drawn away into the woman he loves.”
Author: Bram Stoker (1847-1912, Irish)
To give you a little context for this quote, you'll need a bit of background info. So the story starts out with the lovely Lucy hanging out with her girlfriend Mina. Lucy apparently has guys just knocking down her door to marry her because she gets 3 marriage proposals: one from a doctor named John Seward, one from an American named Quincey Morris, and one from a guy from a good English family named Arthur Holmwood. She ends up choosing Arthur, but unlike the real world and in high school, everyone ends up staying friends.
Alas, Lucy still dies. Well, kind of. She actually turns into a vampire and starts crawling out of her tomb at night and going on the prowl until. . . well, I don't want to spoil it for you, but it ends in a gruesome blood bath! And things don't go too well for her friend Mina, either, whom Dracula has an attraction to!
If you fell desperately in love with someone who only liked you as a friend, would you donate your own blood (or plasma--see why here!) to save that person's life?
