Hangman game backward version 3 - guess what was the question:

fill in "d" - Your white shirt soaked with my blood but you wouldn't care.
fill in "n" - It will be nice to have it on table or bedside.
fill in "t" - You're looking at me now without knowing. In fact you are touching / smelling / hearing / tasting me without knowing.

Again, your answer can be in the form of:

The question was: _ p p l e

followed by explanation.

    $\begingroup$ @AggieKidd We should have noticed that now it says just 'fill in "d"' instead of 'fill in a "d"'! +1 to your answer anyway. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor May 21 '15 at 20:02
  • $\begingroup$ Oh man nothing can escape your eyes rand al'thor? I silently removed them and guess it didnt' work :D $\endgroup$ – Alex May 21 '15 at 20:28

Could it be

m a _ _ e r

with "d"

madder - a red dye or pigment obtained from the root of the madder plant, or a synthetic dye resembling it.
presumably you are soaking your white shirt with this red dye (the color of blood!) because you want to dye your shirt red.

with "n"

manner - table manners and bedside manners are both good things to have

with "t"

matter - everything is made of matter!

Maybe a bit of a stretch, but is it

ti_e

fill in "d" - Your white shirt soaked with my blood but you wouldn't care.

tide - the magical laundry detergent will get out blood.

fill in "n" - It will be nice to have it on table or bedside.

tine - fork on a table, some other pokey thing by the bed for... well....

fill in "t" - You're looking at me now without knowing. In fact you are touching / smelling / hearing / tasting me without knowing.

tite - a bit of an old word, but defined as "immediate" here. We touch, smell, hear, and taste the present or immediate.

    $\begingroup$ I like how 4 people agreed with your +1, and somehow the answer only has 2 upvotes! $\endgroup$ – pacoverflow May 21 '15 at 19:47
  • $\begingroup$ If the second line works out I'll have had created a riddle with 2 answer unknowingly. "Tide" just match perfectly here! $\endgroup$ – Alex May 21 '15 at 20:31
  • $\begingroup$ @Alex If it had been an 'm' rather than an "n", then I think it would have worked perfectly. The "n" doesn't quite fit though :-( $\endgroup$ – Aggie Kidd May 21 '15 at 20:33
  • $\begingroup$ @AggieKidd 'm' as in 'time'? $\endgroup$ – Alex May 21 '15 at 20:41

    $\begingroup$ @Alex Very nice. Good luck, that sounds like a challenge to come up with as much as to solve. $\endgroup$ – Aggie Kidd May 21 '15 at 20:45
