Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 208

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

My cat was done running and sat on the floor to lick itself. I took it away of the muddy ground and put it back in the carriage. The girl was looking at me.
What’s your name?” I asked.
You should have asked that look ago, before dragging me here,” she said.
She seemed to have recovered quite a bit, just like when she had run from me the night before. I pulled on her arm and checked her pulse.
Are you a doctor?” Alexej was behind me, I had a shiver, I didn’t hear him come. Someone that big should at least have made enough sound for my vampire sense to detect, I was still running high on blood. There was something not quite right about him but I couldn’t put my finger on it, all I could do was to hope that it didn’t have anything to do with vampire.
not really but I know enough to know when a girl needs to eat,” I said.
The girl pushed my hand away and stood up, presented it back to me for me to help her out. She took the cat and held it tight on her chest, it must have had something reassuring for her. After what had happened to her the night before, I doubted that she was comfortable in the presence of men only.
You can sleep Alexej, we will take some time,” I said.
Alexej nodded. He was examining the girl from top to bottom. She had stopped trembling but was still really weak on her feet.
What’s her sickness?” Alexej asked.
Poor blood,” I answered.
