Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 331) Unending
The old woman pulls out a chair and takes a seat as she motions for Stephen to sit across from her. As soon as he lets the curtain drop, the room becomes much darker. He sets the teacup and saucer on the table so he can pull a chair out to sit down when Klara grabs at the tea set. She pulls both the cup and saucer into the middle of the table and spins the cup by the handle twice.
This windowless room is void of natural light and the only glow it has is from a small lantern hanging high above the center of the table. Its light is so weak it does not reach the outer sections of the small space, which gives off the appearance of a continuum of darkness around them. This unending abyss would not seem so threatening if the little woman would speak, but the hush is deafening to Stephen as he nervously takes his seat across from her.
