—You are looking for something, something that you probably lost —even with some traces of insecurity, the girl said her diagnosis—, that uses to be troublesome.
With some theatrics, the girl adopted the common resigned attitude of someone who faces a tough job. She choose a couple of flasks of her medicine cabinet, and, with the skill which can only be found in the hands of an artist, measuring and mixing powders, she prepared a potion with liquor in the drinking glass and offered it to him.
—What is this? — Gabriel asked.
Keeping the glass to his reach, the girl smiled due to his suspicion.
—Do you know that moment, when you´re about to fall asleep, when you feel that you have the answer to a question? —slightly lifting the cup before his eyes, the girl reinforced the enigmatic aspect of her words —. And then…
With her free hand, the girl made a gesture next to her head, moving her fingers as if something vanished. Then she offered him the cup again and her eyes seemed to glow as promising as that glass.
—I´m offering you to make that moment last a little longer."
Another character from one of my novels, forgive me for the rough translation i have maded of this paragraph, but it thought it would be a good idea to introduce this character with an extract of the moment when she´s introuduced in the story.
Her name is Vekania, also called Cara Metzina, a nickname combinating italian and catalan, it could be translated as "beloved poison or beloved drug or medicine". She received that name cause she´s an expert in drugs and potions, and because she´s natural from Italy but lives in Barcelona at the time the story takes place. She works in a strange theatre as a poisoner, but even the bad connotations of that word, she uses her habilities to help people. She helps people to achieve the state of mind they need to feel what they need to feel, find what they are looking for, remember what they have forgotten, or finding the courage to follow their hearts.
