He'd said he remembered mist. Now he has the memory of blood as well.

Tainted, borrowed blood, already rotting as it gushed from Dracula's torn throat. When Gabriel accidentally catches his tongue on his teeth, the red copper reminds him of the vampire's last scream. But there's more beneath that.

Sometimes he wakes from a light doze, biting his lip. And hot metallic liquid smears over his mouth, and it's the fresh blood of man. But he's not sure, caught as he is between dream and waking, whether it belongs to him or to the ghost in his veins.
