Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 73

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.

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

“We need to talk about the move”, she said. She had been trying to be calm but I could see that the all event of the night had shaken her. She was looking older than ever and saying that she was also trembling. I knew that she didn’t talk to me earlier for herself but I realized at the instant that she also needed me in her own way.
“I think we will have to work on the stone some other time, the more pressing now is to go to a safe place”, Nicolas said.
“You are safe with me”, I answered.
“But you are not always going to be around, and if we go out leaving Perenelle alone at home, anything can happen”, Nicolas said taking her hand lovingly. I couldn’t do that I couldn’t take Sorina’s hand right now and by just watching them so happy my heart was agonizing.
“Maybe we could…” I started but I couldn’t finish my sentence. Going back to Sighişoara, was feeling like an inaccessible dream. Despite me, I was feeling responsible for those people and I knew that even without the stone, vampires will come for me at some point, some times.
“Go to Praha, what an excellent idea”, Nicolas said. I looked at him surprised. He was filling the blank for me. He was making it easier for me to make the right choice but the choice still felt empty. Praha was not the best destination I could have thought of. Last time I was there, they were burning books, fighting for a god that couldn’t exist, because if he had really existed, if he had really listen to all the prayer the people in my village had sent to him every day and if he had been that powerful he would never had allowed them all to die that way, without even someone to properly follow the burial ritual.
“I think we should talk about it tomorrow, it’s getting late and we are all tired of the event of the day”, Nicolas said getting up.
I got up to, I really needed time on my own, I needed to be able to close my eyes to see her face and hear her voice. I muttered a good night and hugged myself walking to my room. My body was warm but that was nothing compared to her warmth against my cold old vampire skin.
