Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 85

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.

Now, let's continue with Vampire Heart, right where we left of last week.

I didn’t know if that was due to drinking girl blood but this night my dreams where a lot calmer than when I was stuff up with strong man blood. They were calmer and related to my past. I took notes carefully each time I woke up. I had become really accustomed to it. Sorina was in my dreams all night shining brighter than ever. I took note to look for the diversity of blood on my dreams even though with the move things would not be that easy.
When I woke up in the morning Nicolas was just back from sending the last parcel post to Praha. If it had taken us more than two years from preparing the move, it wasn’t really because we were moving. It was because Nicolas was preparing his death. And he was going to die tonight in the fire of his house with his beloved wife and his adopted son. The plan itself was easy what wasn’t, was the part the stone was playing in it. That was what took us so long to prepare. During the last years we had been studying the effect of the stone on different living material, from plants to animals. We came to the conclusion that the stones effect was per during for twice as long as you hold it and that it was starting with healing and then rejuvenating in a regression manner. It was taking four hours of applying the stone for a healthy piglet to go back to a new born twelve hours later, for a piglet almost dying of hunger it was taking two hours to go back to health and from there the three hours to become a new born nine hours later. In other term the worse shape you were in the faster the stone will act on you and the shorter would be the effect after you stop holding it. By a very long and complex calculation taking into account other parameters such as the chemical composition of the body, the mass of the individual, his age and the diseases it had been through during his life, Nicolas had been able to determine at a minute accuracy the time him and Perenelle needed to hold on to the stone to get back to their early thirties.
