Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 333) Begins To Hum

With her cane, Klara pushes the teacup and saucer toward Stephen being very careful not to spill the contents. Unsure if this is a good idea or not, Stephen slowly lifts the teacup to his lips. He can feel the warmth coming up from the liquid and the scent of cinnamon tickles at his nose as he takes the first sip. The flavor is actually good and he takes yet another drink.

“Drink it down but keep a small amount at the bottom with the tea leaves.” She smiles as she closes her eyes and begins to hum quietly.

With one final gulp, Stephen finishes the contents of the teacup exactly as the old woman directed. Standing up, she inspects the cup then takes her seat and folds her hands in front of her as if praying. Her lips are moving but Stephen cannot make out any of the words she is saying. To him it does not even sound like the native tongue.

  1. I wonder what it means if you swallow the tea leaves. Of course if you swallow the teabag, that probablyis an omen that you will choke to death.

    • LOL! Yes, that could very well be the outcome if you swallow the teabag. 😀 I suppose if you swallow a few tea leaves it might be quite healthy, however your fortune of the future may be a bit skewed. I hope your day was great, Carl!
