Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 304) Unstable Step
Instead of believing this is a child lost, Stephen knows without a doubt the thin bony prints belong to the creature he so greatly fears. Sweat builds on his forehead and his body begins to chill for he knew this at the manor but refused to believe it. He kept telling himself this was not possible for he desperately wanted to think a wild animal had ventured into his home. However, now more than anything, he knows he has been lying to himself.
Standing up, he looks into the deep thickness of the obscure undergrowth to see if this thing is nearby. Stepping backwards in a feeble attempt to continue progressing towards the manor, Stephen glances in all directions in a frantic state. His eyes are quickly searching and scanning the forest around him to see where this horrid thing went. The pressure he feels is beyond anything he can describe and it builds with each unstable step before he decides to run for his life.
