Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 178) Thank You

“It must be nearing noon,” Zsofia says softly as she turns and looks into Stephen’s eyes, “I should probable get to the teahouse.” As she looks up at Stephen, she nearly leans in for a kiss.

Neither she nor Stephen move or look away for several seconds as they stand face to face atop the elegant building. The silence they are in is not exactly uncomfortable and they both find themselves surprisingly content and at ease. Slowly Stephen slides his fingers through Zsofia’s hair as he tucks the stray tresses away from her sparkling eyes.

“Thank you,” she says as she touches his hand.

“For what?” he questions.

“For letting me experience this with you.” She smiles as she pulls her hair to one side and holds it with her hand.

Stephen nods and grins as he looks back down at the large garden area below and thinks of this new and exciting friendship. He has not been close to anyone in years except for his on again off again relationship with Kate. She lives in the town where he grew up, but at this time, it has been months since he has spoken to her.
