The Elixir Of Life
The Elixir Of Life (1830) is a horror story by Honoré de Balzac. It can be read online. Read it to find out if the son will use the elixir to keep his dying father alive, and what he will do with his own life afterwards.
Balzac isn't best known for his supernatural/horror short stories, and there are precious few of them. Well worth reading.
