Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 177) Adoration
“So all this time, all the days of working here, alone in the house, you never once strayed from the few rooms on the first floor?” Stephen asks with disbelief and a sly grin as he jokingly implies she has been lying to him.
“As hard as it may be to believe, yes I followed the rules, but don’t think I wasn’t tempted several times.” She laughs in a teasing way. “Remember, I explored the conservatory to its fullest though, and climbed all the way to the fourth level of the suspension walkways, so I have viewed a lot yet stayed within the boundaries as well.”
The wind has picked up slightly and as Zsofia stands in the sunshine, wisps of hair float along her neck and across her face. Before she can swipe it away, Stephen reaches up and slides his hand along her cheek pulling the strands back. Neither speak a word as they stand there together, extremely close, each with adoration for the other, yet neither daring enough to admit how much they enjoy the company. Zsofia looks up at the sun and raises her hand to shield her eyes.
