Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 149) Rather Odd
Just now, he notices the same iron and wood woven pattern that is on all the exterior doors, it appears to be on the trim of each window as well. Again, he finds this odd for it seems too detailed but in a random almost sloppy manner. It is unique, but rather odd and not necessarily what he would describe as beautiful. No, his word for description would be, eerie.
The sun has barely risen and with it, the slight glow of morning surrounds the manor like a golden halo. The west side of the structure and the main door where Stephen is sitting, is shaded and appears cold compared to the other sunlit walls and roofline. Birds are beginning to flutter around, in and out of little crevices in the masonry work, and a slight breeze ruffles Stephen’s wavy hair as it passes by.
He has lost track of time as he sits and waits and watches. He knows what it is that keeps him stationary. It is the same as it has been for years, incredible fear. Fear of the unknown and fear of what he knows. It is once again holding him hostage as it keeps him from reentering the dwelling or even getting up to pull the entry door shut. He wonders if it is truly something sinister that inhabits this property and if this is true, then is it the reason no one has lived here for years? Will he be able to find the peace he craves inside the thick enigmatic walls of the manor?
