Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 198) Dream
“Where am I?” Stephen questions aloud from his slouched position in the chair as he falls into a deep yet restless dream state.
He sees an old photograph burning in the fireplace. The faces on the aged paper deform as they bubble and melt, then turn into gray ash. There is laughter in the room from a man and a woman, but he cannot see anyone nor does he know which direction the voices are coming from.
Bright firelight, candles, and old oil lamps have the room glowing in a golden light and it should feel inviting, but it does not. It feels cold and heartless here as sadness now comes to the forefront. He has pain in his chest, hard and tight as if being hit with an object in short bursts. This makes him stumble and as he falls to the floor, a most horrific sight flashes in front of him.
