Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 70

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.
Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week.

“Is that why you are still old I asked?” I couldn’t take my eyes from the stone, the effect it had had on me. That was something that nothing had done before. It seemed to be restoring the brain cells of my damaged memory.
“No, we are old until everybody we know die. Then we will give ourselves another life or at least that was the initial plan”, Nicolas said.
“You can never see everybody you know die, you always have to met other people”, I said still looking at the stone.
Nicolas might have caught my look because he closed the box and the attraction of the stone on me automatically disappeared. I started to breathe again.
“Now you know what this does?” Nicolas asked with a smile. I wasn’t too sure to know what it meant or what it was or what it actually did to me.
I stood up quickly.
“I need to go back to Transylvania”, I had said it really quickly. Perenelle and Nicolas looked at each other a bit concerned.
“You need to think about it carefully”, Nicolas said looking up at me and pulling his glass of warm cider closer.
But for me it was clear, of course I didn’t thought about it but the thought was turning in my head. But it wasn’t that I needed to go back to Transylvania really. It was more complex than that. It was Sorina, I needed to go back to her, I needed to see her face, to hear her laugh, to just look at her from far away to make sure that everything was alright, to pretend that there was nothing between us in front of the clan and to hold her as tight as if she was going to disappear any minute when I was alone with her. How did I forget that, how could I forget that? Her name was turning in my head, I couldn’t think about anything else, I couldn’t think clearly, I could only think about her with the feeling that something terrible had happened to us and was still happening to her but I didn’t know what and that was killing me.
“There is something I know and I can’t let it this way”, I said. I wanted to mention Sorina to yell my love for her, to make them understand that there was nothing wrong with it but as I started to speak I realized that it wasn’t Nicolas or Perenelle who needed to be told that. It was him, the vampire in my dream, the one who had condemned me to death for what? I couldn’t think about anything else than being in love with a human however stupid that might sound.
