Oh, there you are. Come on, just take it! Choice: Thanks! What are you looking so happy about? Don’t be ridiculous. I don’t have a choice, do you hear me? You have to do this on Valentine’s Day. It’s just something I ordered online. Call it a social obligation if you like. Choice: But the packaging is clearly handmade… Well, I’m sorry for being no good at wrapping! I’m astonished you’d even notice something so small! I just had a lot of time to kill, is all! It comes with being immortal. All I have is time! Boring doesn’t even begin to describe it. Choice 1: Then have you been giving chocolate to someone every year?
Choice 2: I thought you’d always tried to avoid human contact… Good grief, how tactless can you be? Do I really not scare you even a little bit? Do you act this way with Vlad and Carmilla, too? Choice: I don’t find you as scary as those two Well, maybe you’re right to think so. I’ve often been called a vampire, but I wouldn’t want to be bundled in together with the real thing. Choice: Do you find it hard to get along with Carmilla? Yes. I won’t mince words. I despise her. The tales passed down among the people may have warped her a great deal from the way she should be, but I hate her even so. Just like all vampires. I can’t speak for any others, but I don’t experience any lust or drive for blood. And I refuse to allow anyone to treat me as one of them. Choice: You really think that? Now that I have taken this form of living flesh, I need to replenish my life energy somehow. But just having any plants or animals in my vicinity share their energy with me little by little is enough to sustain my metabolism. Short of being left alone in the middle of the desert, I feel no hunger. And the thought of finding pleasure in the taste of blood makes my skin crawl. Choice: Then…you aren’t some kind of enemy of mankind? What? Do you hear yourself? If anyone is anyone’s nemesis here, it is you who are mine. Can you imagine the treatment I have endured, all for the sake of my immortal body? You humans have no tolerance for anything that escapes your understanding. From the peaks of the mountains to the bottom of the sea, you conquer and desecrate that is mystical. You cannot help yourselves. You are driven by your brutality. And you have the gall to call it a search for knowledge. Well, if the need ever does arise to absorb a large amount of mana incredibly quickly, it isn’t as though I *can’t* take sustenance from drinking blood directly. And I have drained more than a few lives to death that way. But I am alone. And there are seven billion of you. It shouldn’t take much thought to see which of us is the real threat. I have no intention of finding fault with my contract as a Servant at this late hour. But you should never forget that at heart, we are anathema to each other. Choice 1: Well, that aside
Choice 2: Thank you for the chocolate You’re going to bring that up again, after this whole conversation!? The sheer nerve of you!
