5th sentence, 74th page: Then he opened a vein on the cow’s wrist and dripped the blood into the wine, watching the drops swirl and spread.
An interesting take on the idea of vampires keeping their own “sheep”, and the ways in which they view them. It’s a little too similar to how some people view cattle.
I felt super uncomfortable reading this short story. Which I’m pretty sure was the aim. It took a weird turn at the end which made me go from morally questioning and uncomfortable… to just downright uncomfortable. Like really. Like I have struggled to write any kind of review for this because I’m just… yup, you guessed it… uncomfortable.
Actually, this made me so uncomfortable that I’m just not going to say much more about it. Other than it is really worth the read…
