Thursday Fiction 193: Parallel Slip

Welcome back to a new part of Parallel Slip, where we follow the adventures of Frederique through her slip in different parallel universes.
Let's start right where we left off last week.

"I tried to explain why I wanted more classes, dad didn't listen, I told him it was my life and my choice and that he had to deal with it," Amy said.
She was smiling between her tears and wiped her eyes.
"No you didn't," Alex said smiling too.
Amy nodded.
"I did, I totally did and it was awesome," she answered.
Alex's phone rung again and I could hear some yelling on the other side as he picked it up.
He held it far from his ears until the yelling stop.
"Don't yell at me, I didn't do anything wrong," he said.
Whoever was on the other side of the line seemed to calm down as Alex placed his phone near is ear.
"I think it's fine actually," Alex said. "I think she can make it."
There was a long tirade from the other side as Alex listen. I noticed how patient he was with his parents when he didn't seem to have that kind of patience with Amy before.
"Just let her try, it's too late to do anything about it, it could be a nice surprise."
"No, I don't know which class. Maybe you should call her and ask, Mum."
"No, she won't call you back."
"No, because you have her number and if you want to talk to her you should call her."
"I know but I can't do anything about it."

Wednesday Snippet 196: Blue Angel

Welcome to a new part of Blue Angel unedited, we start right where we left off last time.

Isakael was praying and waiting. His legs hurt but he couldn't move, he was hungry, he had lost all track of time, all he knew that it was day now because the light was passing through the stained glasses giving the floor beautiful colors. The voice of the prayer was far from monotonous in Isakael's hears, from time to time he would have sworn that a girl was singing but he knew that wasn't possible. His mind seemed to be wondering more than usual, he was seeing things in the colored shaped on the floor he was hearing things and it seemed that he wasn't the only one. People stood up, started to tremble. His wings were to heavy to carry or he knew he would have been up too, he was shaking. There was a blue light in his mind, stars exploding, all sorts of light and all sorts of colors. He remembered wanting to yell that he didn't believe in God but that would have sounded to wrong, he could feel god inside of him and then nothing. Everything turned black.
“Awake, awake to your own power, this is nothing compare to who you really are!” the voice was terrifying.
Isakael forced his eyes open and looked around, the place wasn't so ordered anymore. The voice was still there, angels praying letting the few of them who had reached the trance do whatever was needed of them before getting back to their prayer. He took him wings in his hand as smoothly as possible trying not to attract attention. They were still white, he sighed in relive and reassumed the position diverting himself as much as possible not to fall in trance again.

Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 198

Welcome to a new part of Vampire Heart unedited. Have you been bitten yet?Sign up to be part of our awesome Vampire Friday blog hop team! You know you want to!

Summary of the previous episodes: Viorel has been tortured by his supposed family who wanted to have him burn in the sun. Strangely enough the sun didn't burn him as expected but Viorel has no memory of who he is. Following the advises of his supposed father, he left Sighișoara and is now traveling to the West. After some skirmish in a previous city, he found refuge on a boat. Viorel is now in Vienna. The little problem is that the guy at the inn was a bit of an asshole and helped capture Viorel thinking he was a vampire, which he is but nobody needs to know. Now there is a huge man (which I call the colossi) taking care of Viorel and a priest. They brought a girl. Torture my holy water... Fail. Viorel managed to confuse everyone, now he would like to get out of here. But the girl seems pretty useless. They still managed to escape and he left the girl to the care of the boat lady before going back to have two words with his captors but his power of persuasion were failing him. The priest wanted to crack a deal but Viorel is not really up to help his enemies. He finally got some blood but he can't risk to stay in Vienna. He travel to Linz were he stays a bit to learn German.
Viorel wanted to go to Praha but redirect himself toward Augsburg instead where he wants to get a horse, except that the horses are a bit scared of his vampirism and maybe something else. Viorel is really not a horse expert. Then he comes into an altercation with couple of people, he wants some fear in his blood. The girl Viorel has found seemed to enjoy the game. Viorel prepares for the nightmares that come with a feast of blood, in a rush to leave, he cross the dukedom of Lorrain.
We introduced Sorina, three weeks after the beginning of Viorel's escape.
Viorel dreamed of Sorina and woke up not really remembering anything. Traveling to Paris, he arrives at "La cour des miracles". He is rescued by a stranger who turned out to be Nicolas Flamel, the alchemist he was looking for. Nicolas does some strange experiment without Viorel's agreement. Some people are looking for Nicolas's secrets. On the other side of Europe, Sorina awakes and Viorel's past in haunting him. Viorel discovered that he can change into a wolf but that's not the easiest thing to handle.
Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week.

I have a cat, I need to go home and to give it the milk, it’s too small to feed itself alone,” she said.
As I turned around I thought that she had tears in her eyes. So that’s what it had been all about, a cat, she was more afraid for her cat than to be left with me alone after I had killed her dad and drink her blood the night before, some humans were very interesting. I didn’t regret to have kept her alone, she was going to teach me a lot about them during the trip.
Get ready, we will go take care of your cat,” I said opening the door.
She smiled at me while sitting up. I was going to feed on her, every day, I was going to take her away from her country and everything she knew, I was going to keep her weak and sick because I didn’t want the vampire to track me out of Praha too soon but she was still smiling at me. She was too young to realize the reality of life. I remembered the girl in Vienna. She had been drunk from by so many vampires, and she was so scared. At first I thought that it was because of them, I was also scared of vampire but seeing the reaction she had when I helped her escape and seeing the reaction of this one, those girls were more afraid by humans than by vampire. This one was afraid by the man part of me, not by the blood sucker part, yet. I heard a weak knock at the door and opened. She seemed like she was going to fall any minute, her body was trembling due to the lack of blood. I helped her in the carriage but curiously she didn’t have the reaction of someone going in a carriage for the first time. She was a lot different than Sorina. Poor people were always amazed at everything, at the comfortable sits even in bad carriage, at the etoffe of the curtain, at the windows and the speed. She gave me direction for her house but nothing more. As if she was familiar to the transportation. We reached her house in no time as it was only two streets away, I helped her out of the carriage, she knew how to be helped, I remembered Sorina not holding the hand of the coach but jumping down in front of me. This one held her hand up for me to seize and pulled her dress slightly up while walking down the stair. I stopped on the step of her house. I still needed an invitation to get in. Had she known at that time that she would have been freed from me that easily, she might not have invited me to enter. But she didn’t know, most people have never even heard of vampire and half of those who did believe that there were story to scare little children, women and weak minded people. Any man in his town would have try to fight against the vampire before realizing they had no chance to win. It was all part of the game.
Come in, I’ll need some help to find it,” she said.

Thursday Fiction 192: Parallel Slip

Welcome back to a new part of Parallel Slip, where we follow the adventures of Frederique through her slip in different parallel universes.

Let's start right where we left off last week.

"Dad, it's my life, my choice, no deal with it," she yelled in the phone and closed it to hang up.
She was trembling as bad as my other self at the hospital after the fire and she started to cry.
"It's the first time," she said between tears. "It's the first time I don't say yes to whatever they ask from me."
Alex erupted in the room without knocking.
"Mum said you have to call her back, she was hysterical, what happened?"
"I'm not calling her, she has my number too you know," Amy said looking up at him.
"Don't be like that, it's just you are more difficult to deal with," Alex said.
"I'm not more difficult to deal with, it's just that they don't want to deal with me, they never did, they always had you be the messenger to get their point across first so that I was prepare to take the blow," Amy said. "It's not fair for me and it's not fair for you either."
"So what do you want me to do, they'll keep calling me until you call them," Alex said.
He was totally oblivious to the fact his sister was struggling to stop crying.
"Tell them to call her instead," I said smiling.
Somehow it wasn't his fault either. He was just stuck in the middle. All right, he had been the one calling them in the first place leading to this all mess.
"So what happened?" Alex asked again.
