Wednesday Snippet: Demon World 128

Welcome to a new part of Demon World unedited, we start right where we left off last time.

Now they were being tortured again, one by one, in the church in front of their parents, families, friends and teachers but none of them was going to rise one hand to make it stop, none of them was going to do anything to put an end to their misery, just in case talking in favor of the witches was to make them be suspected to be witches as well. It was madness. One after the other they had admitted their crime but they were still been tortured to repeat it again, to justify what had been done to them, to take the devil out of their human flesh, there wouldn’t be any rest for them except in death, going out of this world was the best choice now and even Sahel knew it. They were finally taken out of the church, their white dresses covered in blood. They walked on their bare feed, almost falling on each stones, they looked like lifeless zombies progressing because they were being pushed forward by the crow, to a large tree. Five cords had been prepared. They stood in line, one below the branch on a stove and they passed the rope around her neck tightening it and pushed the stove away. The clamors rose again as her neck broke, the others were looking away, they only carried a bit of humanity in this dehumanized crowed. They took her down and pushed the second forward, it was harder she was fighting. She knew what would happen to her now. She finally walked up on the stove with a new cord around her neck and her neck broke in the same way, her body hanging from the branch. Had they been witches, had they had had as much power as they were said to have, do you really think that they could have been caught that easily? Those people didn’t know what Magick was and they would never learn. They didn’t want to learn. The fear of the unknown was too strong, or the general ignorance maybe. Sahel kept on watching, hoping for a miracle. They were always praying for miracle in that church, for the rain to come for the harvest to be better than the preceding year, for a child to be cured from an unknown decease. People liked to ask god for miracles that would never come. Today it was his turn, to look at the girl one by one being hanged on the lowest branch of the tree. And to pray to the god he had so long neglected because it had neglected him. It was his only chance, his last chance. When they past the cord around her neck, he knew it was over, it would never be the same again.
“Witch do you have something to say to save your soul?” the priest asked.

Vlog #70 Books, Ak-garden, Doll World Festival and my first Cu-poches (with video)

Today, I went to vote at the French ambassy after a night of reading... Can't stop on a good book or on the next lol. I went there super early because I needed to go to Ak-garden at the opening to get the Alice Cu-poche limited... hum. the things is a lot of people vote for the presidential election but not so much for the legislative so there was no queue at the embassy which was cool but also mean that I arrived at AK-garden one hour in advance.
Then the queue I was expecting for cu-poche Alice didn't happen either, actually I'm so used to Azone that I thought it was going to take a while, or like nendoroids, those take even longer but nope. There was only one guy buying the cu-poche in front of me so I ended up hesitating and getting 3 instead of 1. I got Belle, the original Alice and the Limited Alice. And that left me some time to go to the "Be face" Workshop to make a dress for my lil'fairy. Since I had Eruno with me, she tried the dress on right away.
Then I discovered that there was the "Doll World Festival" on the 4th floor with free entry so I went there too. It's more about porcelain doll and felting with some teddy bears. It was quite a lot of fun in a day.

Here is the video

WeWriWar 211: Rainbow catcher

Welcome to a new excerpt of Rainbow Catcher for the Weekend Writing Warrior and Snippet Sunday.

Now let's go back to our story.

Summary of previous episodes: Clarissa is coughing and wanted to watch Everett Cooper on TV but Jason refused, she is due to get her rainbow the next day but she seems scared, to make her feel better Jason leave the TV on. Clarissa tried to explain about rainbows, she is a big fan of Everett Cooper but Jason is not too sure about it. Clarissa complained about her dialophone but Jason needs to go to work. Before completely leaving he is thinking about getting her her rainbow. We flashed back to the meeting Jason had with a rainbow seller at the black market. Jason left Clarissa's room to go to work. Jason was talking to his boss about the rainbow coming the next day. Jason prepared the money for the rainbow in a sport bag and went to the hospital. The rainbow seller arrived for the delivery. But it was a scam and Jason prepares to go get the rainbow himself in the desert. Markus has a last surprise for him.

We start just where we left off last week.

As the speed decreased he observed that they were exactly where they should be.
“I knew you would love it,” Markus said looking at him as if he could read everything on Jason's face.
“You told me to stop so long ago, I was sure we would be much further,” Jason said.
“I know how difficult to stop it is once you are driving it, so I took a chance, it was better to stop early,” Markus said.
“I think I’ll go by bike, if you still want to give it to me,” Jason said.
“Of course, I knew it all along, kid,” Markus said giving him an friendly clap on the shoulder.
“I really wasn’t sure myself,” Jason said.
“That seemed pretty obvious, now go and bring us a nice rainbow back,” Markus said getting down from the bike.

Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 126

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. (This might be a bit awkward as I have been editing but I'm not finished)

Pretty much”, I said.
That’s not even”, Nicolas answered.
He still had his handkerchief in front of his mouth, it was the first time for him to see the victims of vampire and I could see his body stretching. He was scared. It was unreasonable. It was irrational, with all the people in the city and the vampire attacking only at night and unable to enter houses without being invited, there was no way he could ever be attack. The probabilities were extremely low. And his blood was polluted by the philosopher stone, I knew what it was but other vampires wouldn’t risk it, except maybe for the new born. I looked at all the body, they were all clear.
I’m absolutely certain”, I said.
Nicolas seemed to relax a bit.

This one is not one of us,” I said.
Nicolas looked up at me. He had read in the newspaper that two bodies were strangely mutilated and this one was one of them. There was no trace of vampire on it, the holes in the neck were missing. Nicolas came closer and his face turned pale at the sight. At that moment I realized that there was something different between me and the humans, I was able to contemplate dead in all its form without having my heart shaken but it was different for Nicolas. For him death meant the end and seeing a body in such a hard shape was bringing him a lot more sensation that I could have felt. Half of the face was gone as if devoured by a beast with large teeth, there were traced of the animal’s front legs imprinted deeply into the man’s chest. Nicolas overcome his nausea and started to measure them and draw them in his notebook.
This one is none of our concern,” I said coldly.
I wanted to walk to the next corps but Nicolas stopped me.
If we don’t stop the creature doing this what good is it to stop the others,” he said.
I looked at the body again and pulled the blanket away from it completely. I could see what happened. Seeing the traces of dirt in the man’s hair, he had been walking in a field, the beast had come from behind surprising him, he had turned around to the noise and probably stumbled when discovering his attacker twisting his angle which would explain the red mark on his angle, he had tried to walk back up using his hands which was explaining the scratch marks on his wrists. The beast had jump on him, both front leg pushing hard in his chest and making him fall backward. He had raise his hands to protect himself and the beast teeth had slept from his neck where it wanted to port the attack to his face. He was a strong man and the beast was about the same strength. The man had continued to fight blindly for a while but the beast was already eating his thigh. He had probably died quickly due to loss of blood. The beast had only partially eaten his belly and legs.
This was done by an animal,” I said. “The man surprised him when he was eating so it attacked because it felt frightened, there is nothing more to it.”
Nicolas looked at me. I could see that he needed to breath but the smell was too strong for him to take and delivering deep breath.
You might be right,” he said, “let’s concentrate on what we came for first.”
