Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 191

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

Yes, I’m saying that you should use the stone to fully heal your brain and be in full possession of your knowledge, it will be easier for you to know where to go and what to look for, you will know the strength and weakness of your enemies if you decide to still go for revenge. Who knows how many century will pass before you are fully aware of who you really are, who know how many human life and who know if they will ever fix everything. The composition of the blood you drink varies depending of what the humans drink and eat, the philosopher stone is consistant and straight to the point, it healed your brain it didn’t do anything else to you,” Nicolas said.
I need blood, I’m not a human, I’m a vampire,” I said.
I know, I didn’t tell you to stop drinking blood, I only explained to you that there were other advantages and you could cumulate them. Vampires are coming after you, if you leave a tracks of blood to where you are going, sooner or later, when you are tired of running and rest in the same place for too long, they will catch up with you, a new place without any blood road link to Praha can be a good start,” he said, “with the stone, you won’t waste time in your healing process while covering you tracks. I know that your main problem is that every time you are consuming only human food there is no gain in health to you, quite the contrary, you have taken a bit of weight around the thigh.”
Nicolas was laughing. It was a nasty comment but it was true, I used to train my body at the castle and to feed on healthy blood, in the city I had been only training my brain for alchemy until I understood every secret details of Nicolas’ work while heating Perenelle’s delicious dishes. The thought of them now that I was filled up with blood was not as appealing but it was true that they had transformed my body quite a bit.
I thought you were against me drinking blood,” I said.
