    "Or half our blood," Vivian said with a sniff.
    "Vivian,"Mr Kensington warned.
    I didn't flinch. "Half my blood, then," I said with a prim nod back at Vivian. "But if I cut open my wrist alongside yours, would it not appear as the very same red? Despite your effort to be a blueblood, sister, you are as red-blooded as I.”
