Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 184

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 ended up with the strangest looking carriage in all Praha, me who had been willing not to attract attention, I was in fact failing at it. It had coast me a lot of money to get the horses new shoes. Riding a carriage was a lot easier than riding a horse itself even though it felt like riding too. I was the best coach as long as I was going straight but I had problems to negotiate the turns and after a couple of unsuccessful tries at letting the horses decide for themselves, ending up with them stopping in the middle of the street and blocking other car, how to take it I started to work on different strategies more or less working.
I stopped the carriage near the river and left the horses to a coachman while I walked back to the hotel. I needed to see how my prey was feeling. I bought a bottle of fresh milk and some bread on the way. The curtains of the room were still pulled up and I knew nobody had visited her when I turned the key in the locker. The smell was still strong in the room like impregnated in the wooden floor. She was sleeping in the middle on the white bed sheet. She looked paler than any human I had ever met. I checked her pulse to make sure that she would stay alive and had no more worries about it. She was weak but after eating she was sure to recover some strength. I left the bottle of milk and the bread on the table for her to eat when she woke up and locked her in the room again.
