-What are you doing here?
-I took away your suffering once before. I can do it again, but it’s your choice.
-Look, I know you think you took it away, but it’s still there. Even if I can’t remember why I still feel empty, alone -- and making me forget won’t fix it. It won’t fix what’s really wrong. Anna said that vampires don’t have to feel pain. That they can turn it off. They shut out their humanity. ... Is it easier that way?
-Life sucks either way, Jeremy. At least as a vampire, you don’t have to feel bad about it, if you don’t want to.
-Is that what you did?
-I did it for a very long time -- and life was a lot easier.
