Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 329) Escaped
Klara swirls the last bit of tea in the cup then quickly turns it upside-down onto a saucer. Holding up her hand she extends one, then two and finally three fingers. Gently removing the overturned cup, she leans in close to the leaves displayed on the saucer.
“I don’t understand, what. . . why are we having this conversation?” Stephen questions as he looks at the door hoping to end this meeting and go home where he belongs.
“Your heart is in the right place, Istvan. No worries, no worries.” She mumbles as she pulls a clean cup out of the cabinet. “Cup of tea?” She questions as she scoops loose leaves out of a jar dropping them in the cup.
“No, I’m fine.” He says as he steps toward the door to leave.
“It is not done with you.” She states quickly.
Stephen stops just as his hand touches the handle of the door. Did she say what he heard? Is she talking about the creature that taunted him in the woods? The one Tamas appears to call a friend. How would she know about that?
“How. . .” He starts to ask but is stopped by her next statement.
“It escaped, I knew it would, I saw it coming. The door, the door was left open.” The old woman whispers to herself and the low voice she uses seems otherworldly.
