Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 75) Underbelly

The short statement from Zsofia about finding the basement intrigues Stephen for he knows most electrical boxes are typically found there, at least they are where he is from. However, as bad as he wants the utilities on, the last place he feels he should go right now is to the dark, musty, and what he suspects will be the earthen underbelly of this mysterious house. The daily battle he has with anxiety is beginning to flare as he tries to respond to Zsofia’s statement in a calm controlled manner.

“You seem distracted,” Zsofia says as she watches Stephen carefully. “Are you alright?”

“Yes, well. . . yes I’m alright.” He replies firmly as if her question was an insult, but this was not his intent.

As he takes hold of the open door to the kitchen, he is surprised that she was able to tune into his discomfort so quickly. He would give anything if he could take a pill, just one to help his nerves. Without looking at Zsofia, he can tell she is watching him and he wants to apologize for responding to her in such a sharp tone.
