Louis knew Nicolas de Lenfent, or rather knew him from Lestat’s words. He also knew Nicolas had been Lestat’s first and greatest regret.
Cleansed from this earth by the fire, now his ghost had come back.
And now his life slips through my hands.
His gentle soul leaves on the wind.
A broken angel finds release
From all my selfish dreams the darkness brings.
So what do I do now?
He’s gone. I’m left alone and so unsure.
Guide me now and give me tears to cry
When all I loved died right before my eyes.
Right Before My Eyes (Reprise) – Lestat the Musical
Louis knew Nicolas de Lenfent, or rather knew him from Lestat’s words. He also knew Nicolas was Lestat’s first and greatest regret.
Cleansed from this earth by fire, now his ghost had come back. A mortal. A violinist!
For what purpose? To seek revenge on his once maker? To ask for immortality one more time? Did he, in this mortal flesh and mind, retain his memory? Did he recall his pains, his madness? Did he remember love?
Louis felt the chill coursing sharply in his veins. He might have known the Nicolas de Lenfent of the past, but this Nicolas, this modern, human Nicolas he knew next to nothing. Such frightened him far more the dread of killing every night.
He didn’t ask Lestat about this ‘Nicki’, he couldn’t. He was afraid by doing so he would destroy the frail emotional coil they were trying to fix after decades of disastrous twists and turns. Moreover, he was afraid that Lestat would make a choice when the time came, and his choice would not be Louis.
What could he do about it except following his lover to the bar, watching him as he watched ‘Nicolas’ enthrall the audience? How long would it be before Lestat made the choice?
