Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 28) Try This Alone

“No better time than now to inspect the furnace.” Stephen says to himself as he walks out of the room stopping at the hallway. “Well, last night would have been better I suppose,” he whispers as he looks down the hall at its uninviting appearance.

He is not sure how to access the basement and he hopes his investigation does not include any of the rooms or doors down the gloomy hall that to this day he still fears. Pulling the pill container out of his pocket, he twists the lid off and dumps two tablets out into his hand.

“No,” he says aloud as he looks at the medication. “No, I’m going to try this alone.” He tips his hand up allowing the pills to slide back into the bottle and stuffs it into his pocket. Tapping his jacket with his hand, the contents rattle in a muffled way.

“At least I know you’re there if I need you.” He says as he swallows hard with nervousness.

  2. I like the excerpt. Stephen seems to be battling with himself not to depend on something outside himself for the courage to do what he wants to do.How long shall he go? Anyway it is a good step he’s taken. Maybe step by step he will completely throw off dependency. I hope I got it right. I am happy to be here and look forward to reading more on this blog.
