Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 186) Points
“You were hiding?” Repeats Stephen. “Why were you hiding?”
“Game,” replies Tamas as he claps his hands.
“You were playing hide and seek? With Zsofia?” questions Stephen but Tamas shakes his head no then steps back, looks up at the house, then steps back to the door.
“I’m sorry, Tamas. I don’t understand.” Stephen says gently and as he lets go of the door, it swings open farther than it had been. “Can you tell me who you were playing with?” Stephen questions as he watches Tamas closely.
To his surprise, Tamas giggles and runs his hands along the side of his face as he nods yes and makes a loud squeaking sound. It is obvious this is a positive and happy expression. Smiling that they are having this conversation, Stephen laughs with him and asks once again.
“So you can? You can tell me who was playing with you?” Stephen laughs as he feels this is a breakthrough in their ability to communicate.
To his surprise, Tamas steps to the side and smiles wide as he points up at the top of the staircase behind Stephen. This is not at all what Stephen expected and the freezing chill of fear runs along his spine as he quickly turns around to see whom or what might be there.
