Vampire Friday: Vampire Heart 188

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

Wrong!” he finally said pushing himself on the back of his chair. He seemed very relax and confident. It wasn’t that he was trying to prove me wrong, he actually had an answer to my unbelieve. He took a deep breath and smiled. “I think I will have to convince you with an example, because there is no going through it otherwise.”
What do you mean an example?” The stone had been used enough already, there was no way in hell that I was going to touch it again, no freaking way.
As I know you are against the use of the stone for yourself as if it had the power of driving you crazy like drinking too much of hot chocolate, I will be the one using it on myself,” he said pulling out a key from a chained around his neck and opening the drawer of his desk. The drawer had a fake bottom which Nicolas remove, he then turned the key into the second fake bottom and took out two little red box. I wonder why there were two box suddenly, I wasn’t aware that he had created a second philosopher stone, in my opinion one of this hell stone was enough.
You can’t use it again, you’ll end up a baby and Perenelle would be in hell taking care of you,” I said.
That can’t happen, the philosopher stone doesn’t rejuvenate you, it repairs you. Therefore the effect of getting younger will stop at the age when the body actually reaches its optimum shape, the end of growth which is just few years younger than where I am at now,” Nicolas said, “The change in me should be minimal but I would rather show you how the philosopher stone actually repair things.”
Isn’t it the optimum time birth? I was a little bit scared by the experiment, I didn’t feel like leaving Perenelle alone with a baby in a foreign city, no matter how much money she had to deal with the situation and how used she was to live with the Czech.
Birth is the time when you start growing into this world, you had been growing inside of you mother before that, it’s just an etape, not a start, not an end. The real turning point is when you stop growing and start aging. The philosopher stone can repair the cells decaying in your body but it does destroy them. There are way more cells in an adult than in a baby, the philosopher stone won’t destroy them,” Nicolas said.
