Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 23) His Control

Leaning his head back, Stephen looks up at the ceiling and its smooth cream-colored surface. He follows the crease where the walls meet at the top and starts to count each time he completes a full square of the room.

He makes this pass several times before he notices a photo sitting on the night table. It is of his great-uncle who he barely remembers meeting, his father is in the middle, and his grandfather is next to him.
