Kersen woke to the feeling of the skin on his fingers sizzling slightly. He blinked, and then yanked his hand towards his body, underneath the tarp that was covering him. He could see a sliver of sunlight under the edge of the tarp, and let out a string of curse words in a few different languages.

How he had gotten into this position... was not something he really wanted to think about right now. More important was how to get himself out of it. As the sun got higher, the tarp would get hotter. Waiting it out was not a good idea. He also had blood on him (some his, some not), and he was hungry. All of these things were the makings of a bad situation.

And of course, he didn't have a phone. He'd dropped it somewhere outside the tarp. His best shot was to try to... make a run for it. He wasn't even totally sure where he was, but he thought he was near a building. Alley in between some stores. He opened up the tarp enough to try to get a glimpse of the outside without letting in too much sunlight. That was a bad idea. He let out a cry of pain as his hair briefly caught on fire, and he shoved the tarp back down and patted it out, panting.

About ten minutes later, he had a semblance of a plan, and decided that he needed to just gather his courage and do it.

And five minutes after that (after crawling somewhat aimlessly across the gravel with a tarp on top of him), he felt the bottom of a door against a wall, got to his feet, found the doorknob as he felt the back of his hair starting to sizzle again as it peeked out from the tarp. Then he tumbled inside, trying to keep the tarp wrapped around him.

[OOC: Someone could wander by the outside and see him, or could be inside wherever he's ended up!]

Danny held Kersen's gaze, starting with what something that could be learned from a decent amount of googling.

"My last boyfriend was a spook, and I know for a fact that he was murdered by his own people to prevent his research from ever being released."

Then he moved onto the ungoogleable.

"My current boyfriend claims to have travelled through time and space, and after an encounter with an unsettling government agent, I'm inclined to believe him."

He was still holding Kersen's gaze, but eventually shrugged. "Whatever it is, I'm open to hearing it out, or mad enough that it doesn't matter if you tell me, since no one will believe me if I try and pass it on."

Danny seemed to study Kersen then. Not because he didn't believe him, but because he was trying to figure out if he was a "vampire" or a vampire.

"Explains the burning smell," he said finally.

"Right, fair enough. ...So what would help then? I could cover the upstairs window with a blanket if you need rest. Not a clue where to get you a meal though," Danny confessed, not considering the fact that he, himself, was as good as take out for a vampire.

"I imagine that if you meant to kill me, you'd have already done it," Danny pointed out. This trust wasn't blind, it was built on events and opportunities that had already passed.

Danny seemed to think for a moment, then frowned as he considered their options.

"I could go to the butchers," he offered. "Or I could... Donate? Fuck, how does that even work? What do you normally do for food?"

"I'm positive though," Danny reminded him. "Isn't that sort of dangerous for you?" he asked.

"Lucky you," Danny said softly, fidgeting a little, then looking unsure of himself before speaking up again.

"So what, um... What do I do? How do we do this?"

"He isn't working at the hospital anymore," Danny replied, shaking his head. "It's fine, it's just blood. If you're sure it's safe, I'm alright with it."

Safe for Kersen, he meant. Danny wasn't very good at bothering to care about what was good for him these days.

Danny wasn't much for self-preservation, but he still offered his wrist rather than his neck.

"I'm sure I can handle it."

Danny flinched, not because it hurt, but because it was still sort of shocking. Part of him hadn't fully believed it, but there it was- A vampire. An actual vampire.

The high that came along with the bite was a nice perk, and Danny closed his eyes as he let himself enjoy the rush.

Danny barely noticed the space between them as it lessened, all he knew in that moment was that it felt good.

It took a moment to come down from the high, and Danny nodded a little.

"I'm good, I'm fine, I'm good. Great. ...You?" he asked softly.

"You're welcome, mate. No worries," Danny assured him, slowly snapping himself out of his little daze. "So, uh... You're a vampire. ...That's, um- Different."

"I don't even know what to ask," Danny replied. "Besides, I don't expect payment, of any sort, for just being decent."
