Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 56) Did She Fall
Stephen looks in the direction of Zsofia’s voice and she waves at him happily. He likes her energy and cheerfulness. It makes him laugh inside, but his personality does not show much emotion, and this time is no different. He waves back but as an acknowledgment only, he does not smile or respond verbally, and now worries that she may take his solemn demeanor the wrong way. He looks back at the moving water and decides to wave at her again, making sure he smiles this time. However, as he looks up, she is once again missing.
“If I didn’t know better I would think she is a ghost.” Stephen mumbles to himself. “For that matter, do I know better?” He questions, now wondering if she is a figment of his imagination.
The walkway is void of her, so are the many spiral staircases that connect to the suspended walkways. He looks around at the other sections but she simply is not there. How safe are those old metal connections to the stairs and walkways? Did she fall? He wonders as he rushes over to stand beneath where she was.
