Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 299) Puzzled
Stephen finds himself puzzled by this elderly woman’s statement and wonders if Kate has been talking about him to the townsfolk. It would be just like her to make as many derogatory statements about him as possible in order to seal his outcast appearance. The hatred he has toward Kate at this moment is beyond anything he has felt before. It never surprises him, with her inconsiderate manners and selfishness somehow she always manages to come out on top. In fact, at this very moment, he is wishing that something horrible would happen to shut her up for good, but he also knows it is just an emotional thought.
“I see many things, Istvan. I know more than you realize.” The old woman whispers in her shaky brittle voice as she tips her head as if reading his thoughts. “I can help you, if you want it. . . and you will.” Her head shakes up and down as she chews on her bottom lip.
She knows his name and Stephen is not sure now if he is more afraid of this woman or the hideous thing that has plagued him all these years. How could she know so much? Is she a friend of his great-aunt looking to make some money off him? He is not sure if he is angry or intrigued but he knows one thing for sure, he wants to get away from this hunch backed little woman as soon as possible.
