Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 76

Welcome to a new part of Vampire Heart unedited. Have you been bitten yet?

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 wonders if it was just a dream.

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

I turned in the bed over and over unable to sleep, that was probably my punishment for leaving her with them. If anything I happened to her I could never forgive myself and I knew that I already couldn’t forgive them. I sat on the bed and cautiously light up a candle. The sight of the flam disturbed me a little but something was more important. I took my ink and my notebook and started to write, the list of the vampire who had tried to kill me. I started to plan how I was to take revenge. The one of the top of my list was the one who had been call master, who had read my sentence to death and frighten my father. I knew that if I could get him, I could get at least half of the rest to follow me. That was I could use them to kill the others before getting rid of them. There was no time to look for who was the ally and who was the enemy. As far as I remembered the event of that day none of them had stood up for me in front of him, they were all as responsible as he was, passivity was not an option, passivity was a choice to agree with the crime committed and no matter what their law could have been and how many of them I had broken, nothing could ever justify the dead of so many villagers and above all nothing could ever give the right to anyone to make Sorina sweep.
It was more difficult than I had imagined, I remembered the faces but still didn’t know the name. I remembered the corridor I had walked in and the garden of the castle but I didn’t know anything else about the disposition of the scene. Where were the doors? Where were the windows? Where will I be able to let enter the sunlight to give them the fate they had planned for me? I needed my memory. For a second I thought about the stone but decided against it. My heart was in a hurry but I knew that I would only have one chance to win against all of them once I was going back to Transylvania. I needed to be faster, stronger and smarter than them and I needed to have a surprise effect. I left the notebook on the desk for the ink to dry, closed the bottle, and lied back down not even bothering to clean my brush. I would do that one last thing for her and then go find her where ever she will be.
