"Shall we finish what you came here to do then?" He asked me when I didn't immediately let go. I nodded again before finally releasing him from my grateful embrace and allowing him to take a small step back from me.
"Now let's try this again," he told me as he looked down at me. He paused for a moment to take a deep breath before placing his hands back onto my shoulders and continuing where he left off.
"If I am going to help them," he began. "Then I am going to need to consume some of your blood in advance and I need your permission to do so. Do you understand?"
"Yes, I do," I replied.
"Good. Then do I have your permission to feed upon you and your blood?" He asked me in a formal tone.
"Yes, you can take as much as you need in order to save them from that demon's curse." I told him.
The hunger in his eyes grew with my consent but this time I was ready for it. He reached out to me and gently cupped the side of my face with his left hand. He stroked my cheek with his thumb for a moment before slipping his hand to the top of my head and softly tilting it to the side. Doing this stretched the muscle connecting my neck to my left shoulder, pulling it taut. With his free hand, he pulled the collar of my ragged shirt aside to expose the muscle before leaning down and whispering in my ear.
"This will only hurt a little," he told me shortly before biting down on it.
He was right too. It only stung a little as his razor sharp teeth sliced easily through my relatively tough skin and deep onto the muscle beneath it. He cleanly took a chunk out of my flesh with his teeth and left behind a dully aching wound in its place. The pain soon faded though and I felt him chew and swallow the hunk of flesh he had taken from me without removing his lips from my fresh wound. It was only after he had finished swallowing it that he began to suck my blood.
I slowly began to feel light headed and distant from my surroundings as he fed on me and I fell in to a sort of trance. While I was in this state of mind, I heard a loud bang and I numbly watched as he jerked away from me. He look at me in surprise for a moment a smear of my blood on his lips before his eyes rolled back into his head and a look of intense pain distorted his face. He stumble backwards away from me while trying to claw whatever was causing him pain from his back. He so distracted by it, he didn't notice the stairs behind him and he fell down them. He continued to writhe in pain at the bottom of the stairs until he rolled over and arched his back skywards.
