Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 100

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.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week
I was hard to explain and hard to understand that once I was filled with blood I wasn’t really myself anymore. I looked at the food on the table but it wasn’t appealing at all. I wanted more blood, just like every time I had some but I knew that my inability to cover up for last night hunt was now going to play against me. Nicolas wouldn’t let me go out to feed tonight again. I was stuck here. I didn’t answer, there was nothing I could say to defend myself. I went out, drunk and killed the poor guy and that still made me happy. All my senses were awaken, I was feeling truly myself and on the top of that I had a better memory of Sorina now.
They found them already, you didn’t hid them at all, and how could you kill them all so quickly?” he said.
Them?” I asked puzzled.
I had only taken the life of one guy, only one. There couldn’t be more. I remembered that we went out and I had woken up in my bed after looking at the fire but that was the only time I had fainted. The hunt, I remembered it all.
Three men, in different part of time, is it what you mean when you said that you wouldn’t leave tracks?” Nicolas said.
Perenelle put a hand on his arm to appease him but he pushed her away and leaned forward on the table to look at me. It was a secondary effect of the stone, the younger Nicolas wasn’t like the old at all, he was choleric and cold and self sufficient. I wondered why Perenelle had married a guy like him back in the days. All that mattered to him was he research, he had given himself a second life but instead of living it, he was back on the research again, using me as his excuse.
I took the newspaper from him across the table. There was no need for discussion. Reading Czech was really hard for me and it took me some times to find the article. Nicolas had learned the language like it was nothing and that was disturbing me a little. All that was bothering me, I was starting to feel jealous of him, after all I was older than him, much much older there must have been something that I had learned that he didn’t know, or had I wasted hundreds of years just because I had eternity in front of me. I finally found it. Three body had been discovered in different part of town. One far north near the river, one in the Jewish quarter and one that I knew of for being the one leaving it in the street.
