Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 79

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.

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

And I hadn’t imagined how many. For me I thought that we would be going in about five minutes, just after lunch, put some clothes in a bag and leave all doors open as we were going out for good to the unknown. I had done it before. It wasn’t the most pleasant thing but it had been necessary. But here that was different. No matter how eager Nicolas was to leave to a safe place, he also needed to do it safely, not only for him and Perenelle, but also for his work.
It took us months to prepare. Perenelle was carefully preparing little packed with her belongings and had Nicolas send them away in little groups. He was sending mails to some obscure people in Praha to make sure that everything would be ready when we arrived. He said that he trusted them, so I had too even though I had a bad feeling about all the changes going on in the house. Part of the day was still reserved for our research and my understanding of science but the rest was dedicated to classify Nicolas research carefully in a way that only him could understood and putting them away to be send to Praha.
If the content of those papers was so important not to fall into bad hands, I couldn’t understand how he was able to let it go with perfect strangers.
“You see it’s safer, people are expecting me to transport the important information with me and to just let go by mailing unimportant papers.” He answered to my questions.
“I’m not too sure about that”, I said putting. I was tired of clearing up the dust on old book and to try determining if they were valuable or not just to have him do it again after me.
“That’s the way you thought about it however”, Nicolas said.
I didn’t bother to contradict him but in my point of view, if I had been one of the guy wanting the stone I would have intercepted everything going out of his house with or without Nicolas and would have searched it carefully.
