Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 198

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 have a cat, I need to go home and to give it the milk, it’s too small to feed itself alone,” she said.
As I turned around I thought that she had tears in her eyes. So that’s what it had been all about, a cat, she was more afraid for her cat than to be left with me alone after I had killed her dad and drink her blood the night before, some humans were very interesting. I didn’t regret to have kept her alone, she was going to teach me a lot about them during the trip.
Get ready, we will go take care of your cat,” I said opening the door.
She smiled at me while sitting up. I was going to feed on her, every day, I was going to take her away from her country and everything she knew, I was going to keep her weak and sick because I didn’t want the vampire to track me out of Praha too soon but she was still smiling at me. She was too young to realize the reality of life. I remembered the girl in Vienna. She had been drunk from by so many vampires, and she was so scared. At first I thought that it was because of them, I was also scared of vampire but seeing the reaction she had when I helped her escape and seeing the reaction of this one, those girls were more afraid by humans than by vampire. This one was afraid by the man part of me, not by the blood sucker part, yet. I heard a weak knock at the door and opened. She seemed like she was going to fall any minute, her body was trembling due to the lack of blood. I helped her in the carriage but curiously she didn’t have the reaction of someone going in a carriage for the first time. She was a lot different than Sorina. Poor people were always amazed at everything, at the comfortable sits even in bad carriage, at the etoffe of the curtain, at the windows and the speed. She gave me direction for her house but nothing more. As if she was familiar to the transportation. We reached her house in no time as it was only two streets away, I helped her out of the carriage, she knew how to be helped, I remembered Sorina not holding the hand of the coach but jumping down in front of me. This one held her hand up for me to seize and pulled her dress slightly up while walking down the stair. I stopped on the step of her house. I still needed an invitation to get in. Had she known at that time that she would have been freed from me that easily, she might not have invited me to enter. But she didn’t know, most people have never even heard of vampire and half of those who did believe that there were story to scare little children, women and weak minded people. Any man in his town would have try to fight against the vampire before realizing they had no chance to win. It was all part of the game.
Come in, I’ll need some help to find it,” she said.
