Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 103

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's past in haunting him.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week
I sighed and turned around to look through the window. There was nothing to see there, the street was extremely narrow. The house on the other side had it’s door in front of my window. Anyone passing in the street could have a look inside. I couldn’t help thinking that even after month living here, I still missed the old house in Paris. I had the feeling that Nicolas was looking for an argument again. He might have had a lot of things against me. Somehow we were a bit the same, I felt like my true self only when drinking blood and he felt like himself only when working, except that without me, he didn’t really have anything to work on anymore. After all the philosopher stone was the ultimate discovery, it was giving humans everything they wanted, power, wealth, youth, eternal youth and health. It was a curse. What are you supposed to life for when you have everything you ever wanted? There was nothing but enjoying it and nobody humans or vampires could ever enjoy something forever except that at least vampires knew it. I wasn’t going to give him want he wanted.
But you too are different after drink blood, I thought that if you drunk mine at least you could have understood.”
He was walking in the room in circle now, something that the old Nicolas never did something that was the main sign of someone unable to control themselves.
We need to see the bodies”, I said.
I didn’t really want to talk to him now, everything out of work had become a burden. I was missing my old friend and his calmness. I couldn’t think properly write now and that wasn’t only due to the blood, looking at him was making me feel strangely tired. It was more of a human feeling than real tiredness though.
If there are others in the city, it’s all good, as long as the crimes continues you can just hide and get more blood when you need it”, he said.
I couldn’t understand him anymore, the old Nicolas had taken my drinking blood like a eating habit, this one was acknowledging that murders were necessary and that murder we could actually stop by getting the other vampires if they were vampires would serve for my hiding purpose.
I’m sorry, I can’t do this”, I said.
He stopped and turned around, his fists clenched. He was angry again. I didn’t know what he really wanted from me.
