Hep C exposure

Visited a hep C positive friend in hospital. Took him a piece of pie. He cut it up with a fork that was on his table that I presume he had been using earlier. He gave me some of the pie which I took a couple bites of with a clean plastic spoon. I stopped because I remembered that he had a habit of putting a fork into his mouth to relieve some pain he had been having with a sore tooth. There was no visible blood on the fork and I did't have any type of wound in my mouth. What do you think?

I gotta say I'm not a fan of cold pie, I would have rather had cake, or brownies.  I only kid because there is zero chance of transmission. Rest easy OP.
