Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 160

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

She walked to the door and I sat back at the desk.
“You better drink your chocolate and rest before going to hunt, your wound is still not cured,” she said and she closed the door behind her.
Perenelle had that effect to put some kind of order in my thought. I walked to the closed, took the key out of my pocket and grabed the satchel. It was time for me to write the letter to my uncle. To show him that I was still alive and nowhere near him and to tell him that he needed to send someone else to get me if he didn’t want me to evaporate into thin air. The letter would take about a week to travel to Hungary from Praha, I would pay the post to have it travel by horse instead of by boat to make it slow down a bit, it would take about three days more as the horse riders wouldn’t travel at night. I couldn’t risk to delay it any longer than that without alerting him. It was a big gamble. Then it would take about nine days for the vampire to arrive in Praha, they wouldn’t ride horses, I didn’t remember any horses near the castle, but they might want to have humans driving the cars for them during the night. I pondered my chances. I could take care of most things in the city tonight, making sure that people knew I was going to London then take the opposite direction. I wanted to go see the other side of my family to learn about my transformation and how to transform again during the day, how to avoid it during the full moon. I was going to Grand duchy of muscovy, the snowy land, the land of the wolves. I started the letter, it read like this.
“Dear Uncle,
I have the pleasure to inform you that I am feeling very well and that your friends are unfortunately very dead. It wasn’t really smart to send me inexperienced and incompetent vampires. It took them so long to find me I didn’t have any idea of what they might be doing during all that time. I for sure enjoy my holidays in Praha and my meeting with the family was delightful. I added two more swords to my collection. That being said if you intend to send me someone else, make sure they know how to use them. I would have loved to see you but you unfortunately seem too busy. I guess once I have killed all your friends you’ll have to come for me yourself.
Sincerely forever yours,
Viorel Ustrel.”
