In the heat of the day, the Governess tries to soothe the young man, who has been bleeding from his wounds. She tells him that he can use his own body fluid to cure the wounds. The Governess, however, is horrified by the sight of her lover's fangs sticking out of his mouth. She realizes that the man has forced her to do something she would not have done if he had not forced her mother to do it. She tries to comfort him by reminding him that they are only nineteen years old and that he has never kissed anyone before they met. She asks him if he did not tell her about the "black foxes" thirsting for blood, but he does not want to scare her. He wants their relationship to remain "pure"
