Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 93

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
Nicolas took the stone away from me. He was looking weak and all I could see was his face above me. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t breathe. Only one thought was turning in my head. “They killed her, they killed her”, it was repeating itself and I couldn’t stop it, I was feeling empty. I couldn’t even be angry, I had seen myself so angry and I was sure that it was because of me that they had killed her. I just wanted to die to reach her tonight.
Perenelle brought some water to put on my face. It was so cold that I felt like it reached my bones.
Is he going to be alright?” she asked.
Let me die”, I managed to say before Nicolas could answer. I knew she had been dead all along, but I didn’t know how much she had been suffering before reach that state of peace.
Not now, you have things to accomplish”, Nicolas said as if anything could prevail against Sorina’s pain.
They killed her because of me, so now I want to die to”, I said grabbing his hand and holding so tight that I could have broken his wrist if the effects of the stone hadn’t work already.
Did you see her dead?” Nicolas simply asked with his smiling face and his intense look as if he wanted to reach my vision of my past through my eyes.
He said lady’s first and they tried to kill me so they killed her first”, I said bitterly sitting up and hugging my knees in my arms, I wanted to be left alone to sit here forever and to die.
Well as long as you didn’t see her dead, it’s fine”, Nicolas said getting up. He crumbled on his legs and sat back down on the bed. The effects of the stone were not over yet.
You don’t get it, I know those people, they killed her”, I said hiding me face in my knees. I didn’t want to look at them and at their happiness.
They are vampires, you never envisaged the possibility that they changed her and keep her while waiting for you”, he said slowly as if I was a stupid child.
I looked at him disdainfully. What could he understand about my pain anyway? He had a happy life with Perenelle all the way and now he was offering himself a second one.
You shouldn’t base things on what you don’t know, use facts and take out all the possibilities. One possibility can be eliminated only when verified”, he said.
She is dead”, I said.
