Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 193

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.

Nicolas smiled.
I knew you would be wise enough to consider, I didn’t create the stone only for myself, I created it for the good of humanity, I wanted to give a change to my fellow men to have a better life,” he said.
If you help a vampire leave, it doesn’t do any good to mankind, I will kill, bad and good man,” I answered.
But you will be the carrier of our history and you will remember the way of life of many, this knowledge shared with the world in invaluable. Of course, I also know that you could drink without killing and I have faith that one day will lead you toward that choice just like I have faith that humanity will breed more doctors than warriors.” Nicolas said still smiling.
He had faith in me for something that I didn’t truly understand and that I was sure I wasn’t anywhere near achieving. There was another question burning my mind but I knew there was no answer for it. After losing my memory did I become closer to who I really was or was the fully conscious self the real me? I felt like education was changing me, every time I learned something from my past I felt a little part of me changing. I remembered myself as a kid drinking blood and killing humans during the night and playing with them as a wolf during the day. It was an educated choice, something other people’s knowledge had put into my head very young. It was the same as the creation of good and evil Nicolas had mentioned but was evil always really evil and good always good? Or were they just the created artifact of the people leaving before us. Who was to decide what was good and what was evil and how? And for what purpose? I might have looked strange lost in my thoughts because Nicolas’ facial expression changes. He seemed a bit concerned, as if I was going to change my mind anytime.
