Yeon Seok looked at her. A promised that they sealed long time ago is the promised that they've been holding on all this while. It's a promised that should never be broken. Yes. He would never let her go. He thought to himself.
"The blood for our research... There's something odd with it.." She tried to avoid any eye contact with Yeon Seok.
"What's happening?" He's now on his knees. Facing Kang Sora and looking directly to her red retinas. "Ya! What is wrong with you?!" He turned her to face him. Surprised looking at the change in her eye color.
Sora lift up her hands and show it to him. "I carelessly injured my hand and the blood got infected into my vein."
"You're hurt?" Yeon Seok looked at her palm. There's traces of blood, but there's no injury found on it. He frowned. Trying to understand what Sora is trying to say.
"The blood is curing me.. fast enough. Without any scarce left"
"Ya! That's great! That's mean we are on the right track right?!" Yeon Seok happy. Now their path to the Nobel prize wouldn't be far away. Their research for cell regeneration is going well. That's what he thought.
He then looked at her. "Why you're not happy with this achievement?"
"This.. has turn me into something else.." she clenched her teeth.
She grabs his hand and put it on her chest. "I.. have no heartbeat.." Pulled his hand to her head. "My body is stone-cold.." Looked at the blood on her palm and lick it "and I crave for blood.."
"Kang Sora!" He's lost of words. Looking at her, worried. "What's happening?"
She then slowly showing her fangs. "I'm turning into a monster Yeon Seok ah. I'm not a normal human.. I'll harm everybody else surrounds me. Including you." Her tears started to flows down. She couldn't accept the situation. "Yeon Seok ah.. I'm not dying right?"
Yeon Seok didn't know how to react to the situation. He's still confused. He hugged her. "You won't harm me.. You're not dying.."
Suddenly Sora's body shivers. She hold on to his arms tightly before pushing him back. "You need to stay away from me.." The smell of Yeon Seok fresh blood is tempting her.
