Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 9) For A Rest

Just two days before their scheduled trip for home, Stephen’s grandfather suffered a massive heart attack. The family extended their stay until he was safely back at home and feeling better, but that very last night at his grandfather’s house was when it all went awry. Everyone had been there, just like tonight, attending a family and friends type of meeting to send Stephen and his parents off on a good note. They were also there to show Stephen’s grandfather support for a swift recovery from his recent bout of ill-health.

It was a nice evening of conversing and eating but very tiring as well. Stephen’s grandfather stood up from his chair near the fireplace, asked everyone to excuse him, and then made his way down the hall to the bedroom for a rest. The elderly man had been away from the others for almost two hours when the time had come for Stephen and his parents to say their goodbyes.

“It is about time for us to leave for the airport.” Stephen recalls his father saying. “Quietly, go down the hall and wake your grandfather so we can tell him goodbye. We will join you in a minute.”

  1. What happens next can’t be good. I guess they are going to cancel their flight.
