Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 61

Welcome to a new part of Vampire Heart unedited. Have you been bitten yet?

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.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week
I hadn’t drink blood in for few weeks. I didn’t feel any need for it anymore. Was it that my change of life style didn’t need it anymore or did I change into a real human in the end? I didn’t know, at least until that day when we started to do experiment on my blood. It was just after diner. As we had spent the day out to do some shopping we decided that it would be a good idea to work later. The important thing to notice is that my stomach was full, I didn’t need to eat anymore but as he cut my arm to get some blood out, I could feel it inside my head. My eyes, my brain, my all person was reacting to the sight and the smell of the red liquid. I clench my fist to resist the need that was growing in me but it just resulted in accelerating the flow of it out of my body. And then I remembered, the night when I arrived, Nicolas had put something under my nose that had made me sleep. The sight of my blood was awaking my vampire senses and I could smell that thing again, in it. “What did you made me breathe, the night I arrived?” I asked as a casual question. I was boiling inside. I felt betrayed, I felt that this thing had been taking a part of me away.
“Garlic essence”, Nicolas said.
I didn’t really understand.
“Why?” I asked.
“You see garlic has the strange property of being vasodilative, it allows the blood to circulate better in the body, it is also used as a weapon against vampire but it’s not really efficient, the only thing it does is to remove temporarily the need for blood by preserving the blood already in the body. That’s why I had Perenelle using it a lot these days. I hope the taste didn’t bother you.” He said the last sentence smiling as if it was the only thing that could have bothered me.
I got up pulling my sleeves over the cut and making my chair fall behind me.
“Why didn’t you tell me? You deprived me from a part of me without even asking for my permission.”
He was looking at me as if I was a kid who couldn’t understand and that was angering me even more, I was older than him, no matter how you would look at it.
“I came here for answers and I didn’t have a single dream with any valid information since because you have been poisoning me”, I said.
“It’s not like that”, he answered getting a bit worried.
The blood was leaking along my arm and inside my hand, the feeling of it making me want to hunt. I looked at him knowing that I was going to need to get out fast.
“Then what is it then”, I said slowly as if I wanted every single syllable to penetrate in brain.
