Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 155

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

The thought made me startle and I woke up in my bed in Praha. The first thing I did was to look at my hands, happy that I was still in my human shape. The second was to check about the key in my pocket. It was still there. The curtains had been closed though so I knew that someone had entered the room. My shoes were tidied near the bed, it was Perenelle’s doing for sure, probably without the agreement of Nicolas and she had no business with the sword or paper. I relaxed a bit thinking that the entire world wasn’t my enemy, I needed to find boundaries. I noticed that the sun was still up. My injury still painful, the blood at spread on the bandage but not on the bed sheet, I deduced that it had stopped. It was going to cure itself soon, as soon as it wasn’t painful anymore I would go down for that discussion with Nicolas. Somehow I felt like his research topic, he was dedicated to it but it was far from being flattering. He didn’t take into account my needs or desire anymore, he only thought about the study and I was almost certain that it was the main reason why he didn’t want me to kill and feed anymore, he wasn’t done with his tests on my digestive system. On the other hand I knew he was scared and even more after seeing the bodies. I took a deep breath trying to force myself to forget about him. I closed my eyes again. I needed to write a letter to the castle in Sighişoara and to send it tonight, if they were without news, they would send more vampire to Praha to verify what was happening and I couldn’t let that happen. Once they would get my letter however they would still send more vampire to Praha to track me but they would not stay too long. I was going to give them the biggest fake clue they had ever had. I had three people in town knowing about my existence, I was going to scare them and make sure they knew I was going to London. I smiled at my perfect plan and took another deep breath trying to calm my racing heart. I could feel the adrenaline from last night coming back. It had been so intense. I stroked my injured arm feeling lucky and went back to sleep hoping to see my mum again. But all I had were nightmares from my last night in Sighişoara, I could see the fire, Dylan, Sorina, we were together and suddenly I was alone with her screaming in my ears as the vampire took her. That’s when it started. I wished to be a wolf I wanted to transform, to slip out of their grip and jump to rescue her.
