We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled

That's him! The girl's hairdo is always the same, but her dress has been all kinds of shades of red and blue and I think turquoise.

Was checking out Melanie Clegg's other books, looks like she got the most from that photo shoot!
