"I don't know what Gabrielle is doing. She grabs my hand instead of a towel to clean my mess. She turns it over. It is red. There is blood everywhere and I didn't notice. It mixes with the wine, though the blood probably has enough wine in it already. I didn't think I was that drunk. Now that I see the gash, I start to feel the pain. My hand burns and aches."
