He probably got bitten at some point in the course of his work. Occupational hazard.

I thought it was pretty much spelled out in the book... although come to think of it, it might not have been in TEA so I will do no further spelling here.

Correct me if I'm wrong.


That statement is either so deep it would take a lifetime to fully comprehend every particle of its meaning, or it is a load of absolute tosh. Which is it, I wonder?

I was under the impression that he had been bitten once and that was why he said that he had forgotten to take him medicine/injection while he was going ofter the vampire in TEA and Thursday helped him even though she was advised not to!
