Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 172

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

I needed to take care of the dead man now and I knew that it wasn’t going to be as pleasant. The smell of feces had already filled the room. I rolled him in his coat attaching it around his lower body like a diaper. It was already quite full. I pulled him out of the room and moved him on the top of my shoulder. He was heavier than expected for a so thin body but my vampire’s strength still made it easy to carry. Had I been human I would have needed at least two friends to help me carry him. I was feeling strong and more powerful than ever. I reached the bridge in no time, the streets were deserted and the light had already been shut down for the night. I stuffed his pocket and shirt with stones. Human dead bodies were heavy but they still floated on the water but rocks didn’t. So settled, the man was heavy to carry even for me. I moved him on the border of the bridge and threw him in the water. There was a big splash and the water moved up to my face as I looked down at the body which started to sink. I waited here looking down until the last waves caused by the choke had stopped on the surface. The water still had a different colour where the body had disappeared but I was sure I noticed it only because I had been the one throwing the body inside. People were probably going to look for the guy tomorrow but there were very few chance for him to be found by anything else than a fish. I walked back to the hotel to take care of the girl. She was still sleeping obviously, I wouldn’t have much trouble with her for a while. I locked the door behind me and walked away. I still had few things left to do before leaving tomorrow. The blood I had drunk was giving me the confidence I needed to face Nicolas. I knew he would be angry to see me leave and probably try to keep me her but I had made up my mind, there was nothing left for me in Praha. I needed to know who I was then I would go back to look for Sorina, if the vampire had told me the truth, I would find her changed and free from my uncle, if he had lied, I would at least set her a grave.
