Tea Time

Three noble women sit around a white table in a parlor.

They quietly speak about the events of the day while a servant sets up a small dish and teacup in front of each of them before placing a porcelain teapot in the center of the table.

The woman sitting in the middle, the oldest and wisest, picks up the pot with gloved hands and pores a serving into each cup.  The liquid is thick and red, and it carries with it the smell of copper.  She sips at her drink, remarking that the virgin blood is quite good today.
