Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 159

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.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week
“Did you have some bad dreams?” She said. She looked concerned. Sometimes I wondered what could exactly be going on behind her hazelnuts colored eyes.
“Yes but they aren’t just dreams, they really happened, they are the past I want to uncover but I’m afraid at every steps,” I said.
“It has already been four years, why don’t you stop looking for the past and start building your future, you are smart, Praha is a nice city it will soon be Europe’s center of knowledge,” she said.
“Because hiding myself from the truth won’t stop it coming back at me, it won’t stop the vampires to come and get me,” I answered.
“You can always hide, take another identidy, become fully human,” she said.
“I don’t really know who I am and I don’t want to lose the small part of myself I know,” I answered.
She looked away through the window, a lot further away than the wall of the neighbor house on the other side of the street could have allowed her.
“I just want you to be happy, but you can never be happy looking for a dream,” she finally said.
I had this intense urge to hug her, I needed some comfort so badly. I had never held anyone since I left Hungary. Since Sorina. She seemed so frail in my arms. Her hair smell like the chocolate she always prepared. She held me back, tight on my chest, as my lungs were filling with air, the pressure made my heart beat calm down even more.
“I’ll be happy, I promise you, I’ll encover everything, I’ll solve my mystery and then I’ll be happy, I’ll be happy forever,” I said.
She laughed and pushed me away slowly.
“I can understand that you don’t want to be a human but it will be more difficult to convince Nicolas,” she said.
“He is sure that he can completely transform you, that you will change and can be as strong while drinking no blood and killing nobody,” she said.
“I know it’s hard for you to have me here knowing that I kill people every time I feed,” I said, “But if I don’t kill them they would recognize me and it will be dangerous for you as well.”
“I know,” she said taking my hand.
Her hands were so much stronger that the hands of her old self, I was amazed by the process of aging in humans. She was looking at me in a strange unfamiliar way, as if she knew that I was going to go away soon and that she was never going to see me again. It was at the same time reassuring and disturbing. Reassuring because I felt like an old friend, because I felt that she cared about me and love me a bit like a mum would have. Disturbing because she seemed to be reading my thoughts and to anticipate everything I was going to say or do while staying for me a complete mystery. I was the first breaking the eyes contact.
