Ok, put pressure there.

You're good?

- Yes.

Where will you also dressed and handsome?

- I met someone yesterday

A woman named Dorothy in the hospital, I'll marry her.

God Does she know?

- Not yet but by learning.

Have you ever talked to a woman?

One that is not family?

Tell her.

- Well then, come and give your brother a big hug.

Take your dirty hands on me.

Wish me luck mom.

- Good luck.

Next, take a seat.

It has already donated blood before? - Yes Miss I've already done

You're the boy's belt.

- Desmond, if Miss.

Desmond Well, we can not take your blood two days.

That's fine because I want mine back

What about you? - My blood, I need it back.

Well not work that way, we can not only regresrtela.

Well you have to, since you sting me with that needle my heart beats very fast.

Every time I think of you beats even faster

I had never heard that before, it's very corny.

- It is.

But how shy I am, I practiced all night.

It was not good?

- I did not say that.

What is the difference between an artery and a vein?

What are you talking about?

- The boy from the accident.

Spit blood arteries.

And veins?


I think you should practice your conversation boy and girl before coming

Probably yes.

I'll give you a book if you are interested.

About dating?

On blood.

Another medical question perhaps?

No, I was just thinking that you're the most beautiful thing I've ever seen

It must be because you see me in the dark

No, just're beautiful

You need to see where we go.

Sorry, I did not think you care.

No wonder.

I thought you might like.

It could be if you had requested.


Why did not you tell us anything?

- Because I know they had said no, and I know that what I do is good

And what about your command?
