Vampire travels across Europe

Venice, Pigeons and premonitions

leave a comment »

Chapter 12 is relatively short, mainly dealing with Hedges back in Oxford. But at the end of the chapter we return to their last day in Venice

“A mass of pigeons started up off the paving stones,frightened by something,and wheeled overhead,enormous in flight.The chill from all those cold drinks had finally reached me,seeped into my bones”

A street painter then approaches them with a sketch which includes them sitting at the table. But he had also caught someone else in the painting.

“A lone figure sitting beyond my father, a broad-shouldered,dark-headed figure,a crisp black silhouette among the cheerful colours of awning and tablecloths.That table, I recalled clearly,had been vacant all afternoon”

So the first sighting of Vlad?

To help set the scene here are the pigeons of Venice
