Week three of the 2018 Month of Fear challenge: “Tears”

“Myriads of horrible fancies began to crowd in upon my mind. All of them connected with death, and vampires, with blood, and pain, and trouble…” -Mina

Mina, breaking down as she recounts the memory of her night with Dracula to her husband, Dr. Seward, and Van Helsing, who had burst into her bedroom and caught Dracula as he was forcing Mina to drink his blood and bind her to him…

“‘…And you, their best beloved one, are now to me, flesh of my flesh, blood of my blood, kin of my kin… and shall be my companion…’
‘With that he pulled open his shirt, and with his long sharp nails opened a vein in his breast. When the blood began to spurt out, he took my hands in one of his, holding them tight, and with the other seized my neck and pressed my mouth to the wound, so that I must either suffocate or swallow some to the… Oh, my God! My God! What have I done?’” (Dracula, Chapter XXI)

This is such a disturbing and heartbreaking scene and I hate Francis Ford Coppola for romanticizing and sexualizing it.

     I want to different artists who want to do to draw from my story like this
               There is in old house in the country on an island in the middle of a lake. It had been built in the 1800s No one had lived there for years. Ivy covered the windows doors and the whole home. Around the lake, people were living who had never been to the house.
what this the house look at to you or can you drawing this
   Rachel was just barely through the doorway of the house, her friend Sarah rushed in fast, and Rachel was right behind. They heard a voice singing "Where are you I am coming to find you". Rachel felt hands grab her neck, she felt a tongue lick her neck and fangs press into her before biting her on the neck.
 or this
  A man stood behind Sarah he grabbed her body, with the same Irish accent spoke into her ear "You see your friend? well, I will do same to you! Are you ready for that?" His hand sliding across Sarah's body and slowly up to her neck. He cupped his hand around her neck and showed his fangs, then cocked her neck to the left and licked it before biting down on her neck. The friends in the house stood there watching this man, with green hair and brown eyes, and white as a sheet. Dressed like an old-timey Irish man with his old 1800's coat, blue jeans stained with blood, still grasping Sarah's body.
    Sarah managed to break free of the man and started to run away out the house, his hand left hanging blood from her neck. Another man was holding Rachel wasn't able to grab Sarah.

One of the few scenes that was actually ruined in the 1992 adaptation.

Mina doesn't actually become a vampire, does she? I have read the original Dracula-novel, but I haven't read it in a really long time, so I don't remember exactly what happens.
