Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 205

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

He didn’t discuss money. He was as quiet in front of the inn keeper as I was. We walked outside.
Is that your carriage?” he asked half laughing.
I had one old horse and one large horse. I knew it was unexpected/
Yes,” I said
I don’t think we’ll even reach Paris in a month with those. I’ve never been to London, but we might need a boat,” he said.
They will do just fine, I didn’t choose them for efficiency, I don’t know anything about horses, I just had a good feeling about them.”
Good feeling,” he repeated walking around the carriage and examining the horses and tires,
They have good legs, didn’t get a run in a while, the ride will be a bit wild.”
He stopped in front of the door, looking at the window whose curtains where still closed.
There is someone in there,” he said frowning.
My friend’s daughter, she is a sick child, her parents just passed away and I’m taking her to her grand-mother,” I lied.
In London,” he said a bit suspicious.
In Grand duchy of muscovy,” I answered.
He looked at me smiling.
With a carriage like this you can’t really tell where you are going in front of everybody,” he said.
I smiled back.
Shall we go?” I said pushing the thought in his head.
I didn’t really need to but I wanted to see if I could keep him under control if necessary.
