Panel 1: Taylor, with a ‘that’s bullshit’ look on his face: “A vampire? Really, you expect me to believe that?”
Jillian’s voice from off panel: “You’ve had the taste of blood in your mouth since you woke up.”
Panel 2: Taylor looks uncertain: “...maybe I bit my tongue?”
Panel 3: Taylor belatedly wipes the blood from his mouth.
Panel 4: Jillian walks on ahead of him, explaining: “New dauor need fresh blood to wake up. They’ll sleep forever otherwise, as still as the dead. It’s part of our evolution, protects us from the living and prevents them from finding out about us.”
Panel 5: Taylor catches up and asks: “Dow-er?”
Jillian: “Dauor. It’s what we actually call ourselves.”
Taylor: “What does it mean?”
Jillian: “I don’t think there’s a person alive who still knows. It’s from a dead language, from thousands of years ago.”
Panel 6: Taylor, looking suspicious: “Don’t vampires live forever? There’s gotta be someone who knows.”
Jillian, humoring him: “If you find them, introduce me.”
