Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 135

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. 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

“Please tell me what you remember exactly because I’m also interested”, I said.
“Don’t make fool of us more that you already did. My life was perfect and you ruined it. I was finally going to get what I had work for all those years”, he was finally on his feet.
I couldn’t believe it had taken him so long. He was going to try jumping on me again but his companion stopped him by the arm.
“Actually, I don’t remember much”, he said. “Especially not your face.”
“pff”, the other guy from the bridge said spitting his blood on the floor, he had hurt his head on a rock while falling. He would be a really easy kill.
“I would have bet so”, I said.
He ran toward me. He was so slow that I felt bad for my sword. I took a step on the left pulling it out and he just felt on it, I pushed as he fall, his blood was leaking on the ground, on my blade. I turned around changing hand and cut of his head in one blow. The blood keep on spreading around his body as it lay on the ground, the head rolled toward the river. They both started to age, decomposing themselves. The man hadn’t be dead for long enough for his body to disappear completely. His companion was looked at me fear reading on his face.
“I don’t want to die”, he said.
“Technically, you’re already dead”, I said.
I wanted him to die first but the other one hadn’t given me a chance.
He started to run. That was a very foolish things to do, I might have overestimated his intelligence or he might have never been prepared for battle either. It was obvious that he couldn’t outrun me. But he climbed the stairs faster than I had expected. The music hadn’t stopped and he was running in the crowd, pushing people around. I was back on the roof, looking at him and following him from above expecting to see him stop to feed. And that’s what he was up to. He stopped in the middle of the crowed and grabbed a woman. She yelled trying to fight away from him but he was stronger. The man accompanying her tried to oppose him but the vampire pushed him so hard that he felt back knocking down too other people. The men around were moving forward to get him, humans fighting, the women were moving away holding their kids or trying to pull on their man’s sleeves to make them come back to sense and stop the fight but there was no use. They attacked the vampire who pushed them away like they were bare pieces of paper in the wind. He bite the woman in the neck, she couldn’t repress a cry before fainting. The others just stopped for a moment to look at him horrified. I couldn’t possibly imagine the feeling of those human seeing a vampire for the first time. It was probably going to give them nightmares for the rest of their life. They would be asking themselves every time they would be walking in the dark if there was not one of us monsters hiding in the corner waiting to take their blood and life away. I needed to go away from here it wasn’t safe for me anymore. I could have protected them from him but it would have ruined my passing for a human and it would also be dangerous for Perenelle and Nicolas. The blood I had ingested was making me feel restless, I needed some action.
