Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 322) Between Them
Stephen closes the door and engages the bolt then leaning with his back against it, he slides down where he sits on the floor for several minutes. He is not sure how he feels. Hearing of Kate’s death has not affected him in any way, which makes him think ill of himself, yet he cannot help it. She was horrible to him in so many ways.
Time after time she would play with his emotions and only recently, in the past year, has he learned to live without her. Most of all, at this moment, he has clarity. He finally realizes she was the one with the problem. She was simply an unkind thoughtless person with no regard in her negative treatment of others. Yes, he is glad she is gone; he has a sense of relief that she will not be a threat to him any longer. Yet, in the back of his mind, he feels guilt, for he wonders if somehow he willed it to happen.
As Stephen stands up, anger is the most powerful emotion at this moment, because Kate came between he and Zsofia’s newly formed friendship. Not only did she show up unexpected and unannounced, she destroyed a beautiful moment of understanding between them.
