Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 180

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 woke up in the morning, walking out of the dream was harder than usual. I remembered never really asking myself questions about the righteousness for killing humans but it seemed so important for my mum. I wasn’t feeling guilty about last night and I was ready to continue everything as planned. I knew I needed blood to be fully myself and I knew that there was only one way for me to safely get it before the next city.
The smell of hot chocolate was filling the room downstairs as I walked in. Perenelle was cutting the vegetables as usual and Nicolas had a book opened near his cut.
I see that you had a nice night,” he said pointing at the collar of my shirt. There were two little stain of blood in the corner.
I’m leaving today,” I said.
You can’t, where would you go,” Nicolas answered looking at me over his book once again.
I have some new questions which need answering. I am grateful that you let me stay with you and that you teach me so many valuable alchemy but it’s time for me to move on,” I said sitting down at the table.
The food wasn’t appealing but I forced myself to bite in a piece of bread. I needed to look human for the last time we would be in the same room.
We have many things to prepare before you can leave, we haven’t finish to work on the journals you got from the priest in Viena, they are only partially translated and we still need sometimes to got to understand their meaning fully. There are a lot of things that you never even heard of, alchemy is a vast field and there are still useful knowledge beyond your imagination,” Nicolas said.
I have made my decision, I will be leaving in the evening, I don’t want to attract too much attention, I’ll pack and get my horse. I would send you the news about the journals but I’m not sure if it’s safe or not. I sent a letter to the castle and planted few traps to get the vampire chasing me in the wrong direction, I can’t let them get to you by any means,” I said.
