Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 127

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. Viorel discovered that he can change into a wolf but that's not the easiest thing to handle.

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

So which one are you taking home”, the fat man said, he was clapping his toes on the floor impatiently, and moving his arms from along his round body to fold in front of his chest as if he didn’t know what to do with them.
No thank you”, Nicolas said. His voice was icy and give me a chill.
If the vampires had been in front of him now he might have kill them just looking at them, his eyes had suddenly taken back their old deepness. The way he moved around looking at the body and moving their arm, letting go of the handkerchief to check them better, pressing his fingers and the limbs and his palm on their belly, turning their head both side to see if there were not more holes than expected, it was as if the old Nicolas was back in front of me. I hadn’t imagined that seeing the body would have been such a shock for him.
So let’s go back not, you have played enough”, the fat man said.
Nicolas took out a notebook and started to write all speed on it.
We’ll go back when we have enough information to make sure that you won’t have more of those in the coming days”, he said.
The fat man looked at him his jaw dropping. I didn’t know myself what Nicolas wanted more than to know that they had died from the vampire biting and that they were not going to stand up again. At least that was enough for me, I put my back on the wall and crossed my arms on my chest waiting for him and looking through the window. I didn’t know when I would be able to change into a wolf again but I knew that it was something that I would need to learn to control. I wanted to leave as soon as possible but I needed to take care of the vampires first, I couldn’t let them all to the care of Nicolas. I might have been smart at time, and knowledgeable for sure, he was no match for vampires. I needed to take care of them myself and I was going to use them to obtain information about the pieces of my memory still missing. If they were really Transylvanian, I would take my revenge on them, very very slowly. I looked at the cadaver in front of my and realized how clean they were compared to the blood bath in Sighisoara. The new born were only feeding themselves, they couldn’t control their thirst, they didn’t even enjoy the kill yet. Sighisoara had been a war and the humans had been in the middle.
Let’s get the hell out of here”, I finally said.

  1. I can't wait for him to find the vampires and see how he gets information from them. I like his continued thoughts on how they are new and feeding just to feed, not for the kill yet. If they start to enjoy the kill that will be a much bigger problem. I also like how he relates this to himself getting control of his wolf. It will be interesting to see him turn again.
    I signed up for Camp NaNo today :)
