Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 296) Eyes Meet
Still wound up by Kate’s spectacle, Stephen watches as she and this other man close the door to the hotel and from the brightly lit window, he sees them talking to the desk clerk. Turning around to continue on his mission to obtain a stiff drink, he once again and with much relief, finds himself alone.
Walking past shop windows Stephen looks at his reflection then glances in at the goods on display. Peering in the window of an antique shop, he focuses in on several unique pieces when he sees the image of an elderly woman stepping up behind him. She is watching him closely and their eyes meet in the mirrored effect of the glass. Thinking she seems to be acting a bit odd, Stephen slowly turns around to face her.
“Hello,” he says quietly.
“Good evening.” She replies in a crackly tone.
