Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 32) Folded Pieces

Blowing the dust off the top, Stephen pops the trunk open to find photographs and folded pieces of paper. Picking the first few pictures from the top, he squints to view the images but because the lighting is so dim, he cannot properly make out the faces or words written at the bottom.

“I think this should come upstairs with me.” He states as he places the items back in the trunk and closes the lid.

With it held safely under his arm, he carries the old wooden case with him as he takes one last look around the room. Carefully he climbs the rickety staircase back up to the main floor and pushing the tattered wooden door open.

Gently he places the small trunk on the table, tosses the blanket that he had wrapped around his shoulders on top of it, and turns around to secure the door to the basement by forcing it shut.

  1. Your trunk reminds me of the old trunks in the attic of the house I grew up in. The house had been built in 1825, and even back in the early 1960’s those old trunks were already 100 years old, I imagine. That house and those fabulous old trunks burned down in 1980. Such a loss of the fine old relics of days gone by. Thanks for the memories from my childhood, so long ago. 🙂

    • Awwww, I’m glad the good memories were triggered, but I’m sorry the loss of it all came back to you too. Thanks for visiting my blog and I wish you the very best. 🙂
