Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 176

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

But my dad was right, my mum wasn’t totally agreeing for me being a vampire. Of course she loved my dad but at the same time she was still trying to convince him that killing humans was bad that all life was precious and bringing something good to the world. My father needed blood to live like every other vampire, he didn’t have a choice, but he had a choice of killing or not. And he didn’t share my mum’s believes about all life being precious. Humans also didn’t believe in it themselves. There were more humans killing other humans for pitiful reasons like greed, food, money, envy than there were vampires killing humans. All life wasn’t necessary bringing something good to this world. Some were only here to bring destruction and there was no reason he should have refrained from interfering in what other would do without scruples. I didn’t know what to think. As a wolf, I had killed animals, they were innocent and had never done anything to me but it was part of my training for survival to hunt them and eat them. My mother had explained to me that it was part of nature and that it was a way of balancing the environment. She called it the link of life. When there were a lot of rabbits there were a lot of wolves to eat them so the number of rabbit would decrease and so would the number of wolf because of hunger then the rabbits weren’t hunted so much anymore so their number would increase again and so would the number of wolf. I was the way nature worked to make sure that there weren’t an over population of only one animal. I didn’t see the difference between killing rabbits and humans for me they were both food. My mum had tried to explain that humans could built things making their life a lot more valuable than the life of the rabbits but I didn’t like the idea. It seemed wrong to me. If all life was precious then we shouldn’t kill anyone at all. If I was allowed to kill rabbits as a wolf because they were my food, I should be allowed to kill humans as a vampire, they were only food, talking and walking food but still food.
