Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 231

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. After finding out that a younger version of Nicolas might not be acting with his best interest at heart, Viorel decides to leave for the north. He is now traveling with two people, Alexej who needed to get out of Praha and Irina who he accidentally rescued.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left off last week.

“Alexej, please take some rest, you have done an awesome job today,” I said pushing the thought slightly in his mind to help him keep at rest and forget about Irina.
“Yes, I will, I want to be ready early tomorrow,” he said. “I need to first take care of the horses.”
I didn’t expect such an answer, he looked as if he had felt my thoughts pushing through him and had given the best answer he could to make me believe that it worked. I decided not to push the thoughts again and to wait the next occasion to verify if he was really immune to my power. I wondered if he had been faking it before as well and what his reasons to do so were. I felt deep inside of me that Alexej was going to bring me a lot more trouble than Irina. I smiled at him pretending that I didn’t notice that anything was wrong.
“I’ll order you a room,” I said.
“No need sir, I’ll sleep with the horses on the carriage,” Alexej answered.
“I’m glad to see that you are taking your job so seriously but there is no need to overdo it,” I said feeling a bit uncomfortable about having him defying my authority, there was definitely to trace of my powers in him.
“It will be safer, if people see you pay for a room for your driver, they will come after you tomorrow,” he said looking around as to make sure that there were no one to be seen.
“Do as you want, I trust you Alexej,” I said and followed Irina, taking her arm to lead her to the inn.
“Is your sword ready?” she asked with a half voice.
“Why do you ask?”
“I would think that it is and it better be, his man is nothing like a normal driver,” she said.
“What makes you think so?”
“I have seen drivers before, bowing in front of someone while laughing is pure arrogance.” She answered with a very serious tone which I found particularly amusing but I knew that there was some base for truth in what she felt about Alexej and that she was just having difficulty to express herself about what it was.
