"She (Nancy) hit the handle with the heel of the right hand. All of a sudden her hand slipped down the handle, struck the tang of the blade, and slid down the

blade. She felt the edge bit deep."

This cut left Nancy with an open wound and foreshadowed her contamination.

"She hated the sight of blood, even if it was her own blood. She had a thing about blood. She knew what some blood could contain."

This foreshadows the blood she will soon come into contact with in the Monkey House.
