Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 79) Pungent

Just as Stephen thought, that musty almost moldy smell of old houses and crawl spaces, is quite pungent. He steps to the side out of the dim glow of Zsofia’s light, takes his pills out of his pocket, and quickly slips one into his mouth. It is so very dark down here and the space is massive, with rows of thick support beams that go on into an abyss of blackness.

Looking back at the staircase he just walked down, he realizes each step is open. This sends images into his mind of someone or something grabbing at his ankles as he tries to flee the area. As frightening as this dark and foreign space is to him, the thought of climbing the stairs at this moment is far worse.

Looking beyond his current focus, straight back behind the staircase and in the center of this massive open space is an area of bedrock. It is sitting in the center of this huge dark room and Stephen assumes it must be under the conservator, much like a large container holding the soil and roots of the plants and trees in place.
