Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 190

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

It sounded unnatural to me. I was a vampire, vampire drunk human blood because humans were somehow more intelligent than animal and we didn’t only gain life doing it we gained some knowledge while visiting our victims memorises. It might not have been much, it might have vanished really fast but it was still something valuable. It was not only healing my brain it was enjoyable, the hunt was an expression of who I was. As Nicolas was a human, he had sympathy for his own kind that I was not even near to feel. I was still unhappy about the dead of everyone in fire in the village of Sighişoara but I wasn’t hypocrite enough to tell myself that I was a good person caring for the death of human I didn’t know. What the terrible sight of the massacre in Sighişoara had done to me was several things. First when I discovered them, I felt like a human, I hadn’t drunken blood in a while, I was with Sorina who was a human and I was torture by the vampire. As I was alone and hated by my own kind it was natural to feel comfort with someone else, in that case, the dead human. At that moment I might have felt sorry for them but more than all I felt sorry for myself. My life was totally messed up and changing and it still is now, I’m a run away and I don’t have anywhere I can really call home. Those humans were the symbol of my life in Hungary, I was the master in the castle, I knew them, I had fed from them many times, they were mine. Random humans in the street of a foreign country didn’t mean more to me than cattle. Of course when I was deprived of blood my mind would go toward the wolf part of me and more carrying toward humans as my mum was but that was nothing strong enough to stop me from going to the kill. If Nicolas wanted to convince me to replace my blood by using the stone, no thank you that was not happening.
