Leif: Thorn? Are you still here? I didn’t tell anyone about you . . . And I got a bunch of frozen pork blood at the store!
Leif (thinking): Will it be enough . . . ?
How much does a fledgling vampire need? I don’t even know if Thorn . . . fed . . . before tracking me down.
Leif: The sun’s down! It’s safe for you to come out now. Where are you?
Did you crash in the closet?
Take shelter in the shower?
Batten down under the . . .
Thorn: Leif! Sorry — did I scare you?
Leif: What? No! You don’t scare me! Where would you ever get that idea??
