As the Count leaned over me and his hands touched me, I could not repress a shudder. It may have been that his breath was rank, but a horrible feeling of nausea came over me, which, do what I would, I could not conceal.
– Bram Stoker
Dracula, Chapter 2. Jonathan Harker, in an unsent letter to Mina, describes a nauseous feeling that sweeps over him when Count Dracula leans over to him and touches him. Jonathan’s first impressions instincts are right, this foreshadows the terrible things that will happen to people to fall prey to the Count.
