Karl began the procedure: while one end of the needle was immersed in the black liquid contained in the glass bottle, he slipped the other end into Dag's arm.

"Aaagh! What the fuck!" said Dag, when he noticed that his arm had sucked the liquid out of the bottle, as if it was thirsty.
"What... what happened, Dag?!" asked Karl, who immediately pulled the needle out of his arm.
