Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 302) The Woods
Just before stepping back into the blackness of the forest, Stephen looks at the house hoping to see Zsofia at the window with her delightful friendly smile beaming at him, but this is not the case. Slowly, he steps into the shadows and unlike his departure from the manor with the lack of sounds from the forest; he now hears several birds and the typical activity you would expect from the woods at night.
He has stayed on the path but it is taking so long to get to the other side of the woods that he begins to believe he is lost. With no warning or anticipation, something flies out from the trees and swoops down as if trying to grab his right ear. He puts his hand up to protect himself when from behind he hears what sounds like footsteps along the pebbles of the path approaching him. Fearing he is being followed he immediately stops walking and turns to face his opponent.
Quickly spinning around with arms up ready for a fight, Stephen prepares for a battle. Much to his surprise, he finds himself alone on the path as dappled movement of moonlight streams in from above the canopy of trees. To his left he hears something rustling in the underbrush as once again something dives at him from the branches above.
