Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 179

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 wasn’t convinced. I knew that the wolves liked to stick to themselves, I had felt them in the forest, heard them even but they were never coming anywhere close to me.
“So you decided to marry a vampire to make an alliance?” I asked. I bit my lips almost straight away. Talking about the relationship between my parents was forbidden.
My mum sat up, her arms hugging herself as if in pain.
“Why do you want to drink blood and kill humans so much?” she asked.
I looked at the wall on the other side of the bed fixedly.
“It’s a part of who I am, it’s a part of what I want to be, it’s my heritage as a vampire,” I said.
“Even if it means that you might anger the humans and have them hunt you for centuries?” she asked.
“I don’t know,” I answered.
“Well you might want to think about it a little more before going to kill again,” she said standing up. 
I listened to the curtain move when she walked away from me, her light steps barely resonating on the stone floor of the castle. She pulled the heavy door of my bedroom closed being her.

I finally turned around a looked at the ceiling. I knew what she was trying to do. She was trying to make me feel guilty for killing those two humans and as it didn’t work, she was trying to make me feel guilty for putting all vampire in danger. But the humans wouldn’t attack us so soon. They were to scared and they also wanted to be like us. Nobody wanted to die, every time they were bitten they wished to be reborn like one of us. We were their only hope for eternity. This is why I didn’t want to let anyone bite Sorina. I didn’t want her to feel the taste for eternity I wanted her to feel everything a human should feel just like I wanted for myself to feel everything a vampire and a wolf should feel. I couldn’t understand why it was so difficult for my mum to understand it. She wouldn’t give up the human part in her but she was still running like a wolf during the day when the vampires where sleeping and when nobody would punish her for it.
