Raven hadn't been feeling well for the past few days. She didn't get sick; her Soul-Self protected her from earthly illnesses, so she blamed it on stress and unwelcome news from Fandom. Eric had wanted to go out that evening, but she'd called him to leave a message that she would not be able to do so. She felt too tired, and too cold. No matter how many blankets she wrapped around herself she just couldn't seem to get warm. If the feeling didn't fade by the weekend, she told herself she'd call Karla to see if she could sense if something was truly wrong with her.

[For the creeper.]

Eric didn't live in Raven's dorm -- he had an apartment to himself near campus -- but it was easy enough for him to manipulate his student ID to give him access. Even though he'd drained another girl the night before, he was still hungry for the kick that Raven's soul would give him.

He took the elevator up to Raven's floor and knocked on her door.

"I missed you, babe," Eric said, stepping into the room without waiting to be invited. "And if you're sick, I wanna take care of you."

"Bet I can warn you up," Eric said, putting his arm around her shoulders. He steered her toward her bed and sat down next to her, then wrapped a blanket around her.

"C'mon, babe," Eric said. He moved his hand to stroke her hair. "There's a connection between us. Can't you feel it?"

"It's nothing," he said. "I just leaned up against some metal or something this morning. It was so cold I got frostbite."

"What do you mean?" Eric said, playing dumb. He knew all this already. "You like a meta or something?"

"You're a healer?" Eric said. "See, I told you you were amazing, babe."

Eric felt the brush of her soul against him as she healed his arm. It made his hunger surge, and he had to struggle to control himself. Instead he drew away from her before she might sense too much. He knew he was having an effect on her powers -- he could generate electrical pulses that muddled her mind -- but he didn't want to chance it.

"Hey, you didn't say it was gonna hurt you, too," he said.

"I don't want you to hurt yourself on my account," Eric said, pushing her hand away when she reached for him again. "I'll be fine, babe, don't worry."

"Or maybe it's all the more reason to enjoy the time you have," Eric said. "Carpe diem, right? Even if you're here for only three more months, that's three months I can make you happy. You deserve it."

Eric kissed her forehead. "Hey, kid, don't sweat it," he said. "Your terms, babe. I can wait it out. You're worth it."
