Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 175

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

I closed my eyes and took a deep breath.
“I don’t really know about the wolves, I can feel them sometimes and I know they mean good but they never come close to me, as if they were afraid of something and I know it’s hard on mum. On the other side I have this family that only partially accept me because I’m only partially like them. I want to be accepted, that’s why I want to go to the mountains with them tonight, I want to learn and I want to know.”
“Then we will go,” my father simply said.
“You always tell me to be myself but I don’t know how to do that, I don’t even know who I am,” I said looking down.
“In due time you might find yourself and at other time lose yourself, I never said it would be easy but you can try to make your own choices. I know that your mother won’t approve of the choice you made tonight and that she will try to stop you, you only have to be true to yourself and to what you want in the person moment. Don’t let other people open a fight between the wolf and the vampire in you because it’s a fight nobody will win. You can be both because you were born that way. You have the rich and unique blood of two immovable words. I wish for you to travel in both of them but to keep your heart in between.”
“I’m trying,” I said.
