Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 104

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.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week
If you go after them and they get you, you are putting this entire place in danger. The alchemists are only just barely tolerated with the religious activity going on outside.”
They might have come here for me in the first place”, I said.
Why does everything always have to be about you?”
I think you need some sleep, you’ll see things more clearly later on”, I said starting back my drawings.
You really are an ignorant brat”, Nicolas said walking out.
As he walked away saying those words I had the feeling that my jealousy of Nicolas was reciprocal. I couldn’t see what I had that he might want but I told myself that I needed to be careful with him, even more than I had been so far. At diner I started to smell my food again looking for garlic. I couldn’t find any, we had agreed that I didn’t need that type of control long ago but I didn’t trust him after today. He didn’t talk to me during the entire evening and left back early to go to work. I didn’t follow him. I went to my room waiting for Perenelle to fall asleep. She was an early sleeper. I went back to the kitchen few hours later to check for the garlic one more. There were none in the house. I wondered if Perenelle had also changed. She was moving a lot faster than her older self but she was still as caring as she used to and dedicated to Nicolas, she might as well have followed what he asked from her but I wasn’t sure. The kitchen was hers, it was her call to decide. I could hear Nicolas in his study, it was not really late but with the recent activity in town, people were getting scared of the dark and tended to go home early. The midsummer air ran into my nostril as I opened the door. As Nicolas’ younger brother, I had always behaved and asked him permission to go out, in front of others, he would do the talking so that I didn’t have to say anything. It was for the best, talking with the humans had never been my cup of tea. But from tonight, this was over. I needed to check the body and I was going to go no matter what he said.
He opened the door of the study room when I was about to go out.
We need to talk”, he said.
I don’t think so”, I took a step in the street, there were still some passerby, a couple in nice evening dress laughing together. My vampire instinct brought me to think that they were the most likely victims for the vampires, it was nice to play with couples. And they could always save the clothes or visit the house later on.
