A young woman is tempted by an attractive, female vampire “You will think me cruel, very selfish, but love is always selfish; the more ardent the more selfish. How jealous I am you cannot know. You must come with me, loving me, to death; or else hate me, and still come with me, and hating me through death and after. There is no such word as indifference in my apathetic nature.” ― Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, Carmilla In Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan, the vampire myth begins to take shape 26 years before the publication of Bram Stoker's Dracula.
