Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 91) His Thoughts
Standing alone, with a stunned expression across his face, Stephen watches Zsofia until she turns right, stepping into the entry hall and out of sight. He wishes he had not laughed for he feels that sometimes he comes across as uncaring or cold, but that could not be farther from the truth. He does care, about many things, and he worries that he hurt Zsofia’s feelings.
What exactly triggered her fear just now? He does not recall anything happening that would be odd or frightening, she just blurted out that she felt like something was wrong then quickly left. He does not know what to think of it but now standing here alone with his thoughts; he is beginning to feel vulnerable himself.
The past few days have been stressful and he has taken far more anxiety pills than he should have. He realizes this as he reaches for another one anyhow. With a loud popping sound, the bulb in the lantern nearest him blows out causing the corner where the two halls meet to grow darker. Startled, Stephen drops his pill and is now down on the floor looking for it.
“Come on you stupid thing,” Stephen says as he crawls over to where the floor meets the masonry wall.
