Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 181

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

Perenelle dropped her knife to put both hands in front of her mouth. She was shocked by the fact that new vampires would be coming to get me and even more by the fact that I was the one who attracted them. She was staring at me with her piercing eyes and I couldn’t help but thinking that I had never really known her but that I still had tender feelings toward her. I thought for a second that my mum would be proud of me but I knew it was a lie. I agreed that some humans were interesting enough and not to drink but I knew she would still have questions the ethics in that. What was giving me the right to decide? Well, maybe they were humans destined to feed vampires just like they were rabbits destined to feed wolves. Perenelle took back her knife with trembling hands and Nicolas stopped her before she cut herself.

“Where are you going?” Nicolas asked.

“It is better for all of us if you don’t know about it,” I said.

“What if they asked?” he asked again.

“I made sure that you would be the last persons they would come to bother, and you still have that thing forbidding vampire to drink blood within a certain perimeter,” I said.

“It is not working yet,” Nicolas said.

“You might have two weeks before they arrive, maybe more, maybe less,” I answered.

A heavy silence filled in the room.

“What is they go around asking questions?” he asked.

“I will soon be winter, most people will say indoor or come home early. They don’t know I can move out during the day, they probably believe that the time I escape was just and accident. There is no way they are going to come and ask around here. I left my marks in other part of the city,” I said.

  1. I like that he left his mark in another part of the city so Nicolas wouldn't hopefully be harmed.

    No post from me, I lost track of what day it was. I just have my post from last Friday.
