Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 87) Somber

“Do you know why your family locked this place up and never returned?” Zsofia asks as she continues to look down the hall in the direction they came from.

“It is my understanding, from my father, that my grandparents had moved to the smaller gatehouse due to old age.

The hall of the north wing brightens and the corridor seems to stretch on forever. It is identical to the west hall with wooden panels to the left, thick masonry walls to the right, and old ironwork hanging on the walls. However, this corridor is much longer than the one they just came from.
