As I watched Bill, waiting with apparent calm for death to come to him, I had a flash of him as I'd known him: the first vampire I'd ever met, the first man I'd ever gone to bed with, the first suitor I'd ever loved.

The vampire is not a bad man, and he loves you
DonÆt you just hate nights like that, when you think over every mistake youÆve made, every hurt youÆve received, every bit of meanness youÆve dealt out? ThereÆs no profit in it, no point to it, and you need sleep.

I dipped into his brain. He wasn't happy that I wasn't wearing a bra, because my boobs distracted him. He was thinking I was a bit too curvy for his taste. He was thinking he'd better not think about me that way anymore. He was missing his wife.
I realized that I was really tired of people popping on and off of my property like it was a train station on the supernatural railroad.
