Yes

I'm sorry it's such a late night

Page 6/30

She was stabbed

Please save her

Come here!

There's a separate clinic to be used in case of emergency

Oh my...

Monica has...?

Page 7/30

Why does it become like this...

Doctor Salinger

I want to borrow your hand as a previous surgeon

I beg you to save her

Page 8/30

Jean

Prepare for recovery!

Please ask this to the clinic in the village

Yes

search for someone in the village who can offer blood transfusion

Page 9/30

I will be the one going for it

Earl, please keep stopping the bleed!

If you don't hurry

it will be a battle against time!

Page 10/30

How is it?

...For now, the treatment is already done, but her bleeding is bad

This is the state where we don't know what will happen next

Page 11/30

...So?

Have you settled things properly with that woman?

It's already daylight

For now, Monica is sleeping

What's that

Page 12/30

You should kill the vampire who go out of the way without forgiveness, shouldn't you?

If someone kills while thinking of the partner, then it won't be a sin?

This time is a special case

She did it thinking for Esther's sake. So why did she do it...

What's the reason for that

That unsure feelings of egoism, between a human who kills vampire or

the vampire who kills human in order to live

which of it is following a vampire's way?

Page 13/30

Think carefully, King

This is the time you should decide

*inhale

*exhale..

Al?

Page 14/30

Al...

This is Esther's skirt, right?

Even if she doesn't say it

I already thought she would walk around bringing this

Page 15/30

I'm very loved, huh

That's something you gave to Esther?

I didn't think I would use this quickly...

Doctor

I want you to insert this to Esther, though

That's perhaps...

Right

Page 16/30

This is the drug to suppress the change of becoming vampire

You already complete it, huh? Then, why are you...

Please quick

Doctor

...kh

Page 17/30

Hey, Leon

If Esther die like this, then

Inject this drug

that will be a goodbye for a lifetime

...Can you

Do you have that preparation?

do it?

...If she become a vampire

Esther will be killed by the husband she loves

or she will be living apart from the husband who she should be taking care of. There will be two sad choices

I don't want Esther to be walking on that kind of sorrowful path

Page 18/30

I want Esther to live as a human and die

I won't let her to become a vampire

I can't be diverted

For that purpose, I was always researching

...I see

Page 19/30

I am indeed, don't have preparation

But to wish her living in whatever state

is only my egoism

I won't

let Esther to have that kind of face anymore

Page 20/30

...Well

We don't know if the drug will work or not before she dies. But she won't die easily, I think

You're right

I believe that

Esther will surely live
