"Are we to have nothing tonight?" said one of them, with a low laugh, as she pointed to the bag which he had thrown upon the floor, and which moved as though there were some living thing within it. For answer he nodded his head. One of the women jumped forward and opened it. If my ears did not deceive me there was a gasp and a low wail, as of a half smothered child.

– Bram Stoker

Dracula, Chapter 3. In one of the most terrifying scenes from the novel, the horrified Jonathan Harker recounts how Count Dracula offers the three vampire ladies a bag containing a small, half-smothered child to feast on. The vampiresses’ consumption of the child is representative of how they and Dracula contaminate goodness with their evil.
