Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 89

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.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week
Then we started to elaborate plans to go away from here with Sorina and her family, in case the war was to start. It was difficult as Dylan and I needed blood and they needed food, as they were generally sleeping at night when we couldn’t travel during the day. But nothing happened. I was passing in their territory to meet Sorina before they even could take guard tour and I was away without them even knowing about me in this part of the village after they hide back for the day. Dylan was joining us every night and Sorina started to relax in his presence. Would that have last we could have been happy, but none of us was ready when the war actually stroke. It wasn’t a war, not even really a battle, no matter how many human they had killed to weaken us, Dylan’s clan never took into account that we had servant in the castle which could as well be used for feeding and were also not deprived by the hard labor in field or being repetitively drink from. When we heard the attack it was already too late. It came in one wave from the castle, in the middle of the night as we were just having fun. We were sitting on the floor in one of the corner of the inn. For some reasons I couldn’t figure out, Sorina liked to sit on the floor when she was doing something important and we were preparing a present for her father’s birthday. She was taking it really seriously and there was no way for us to escape helping her. We heard cries and people yelling all around the inn. Sorina came a little bit closer to me. That had become the routine but she was still not used to it, nobody in their right mind could ever get used to that.
“It’s ok, I’m here”, I said passing my arm around her.
“Want me to go have a look”, Dylan said half amused as her reaction. That was the first time he had really been around human long enough without killing them to be able to start finding them interesting.
“No it’s alright”, Sorina said sitting back straight. She was still really close to me and I could feel her heart racing unusually. Dylan started back to work and Sorina laughed again as him being so clumsy.
“Stop laughing at me or I’ll bite you”, Dylan said half jokingly.
“I know you wouldn’t, you like me too much”, she answered laughing even more and making him pouts like a baby as she took the work from his hands.
