Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 372) Eye Contact
Anxiously looking around at the many faces of those who have gathered here, Stephen does not recognize anyone, nor does he see the repulsive creature lurking anywhere. Now that an officer is behind the wheel, they are about to leave the scene. Just as the car begins to pull away, he sees two men carrying the woman out of her home and they place her in a vehicle to transport her for medical care. Her husband follows and glances up, making eye contact with Stephen and holding that connection, as he watches the police take Stephen away.
The dark and silent drive to the police station has Stephen’s mind whirling with fear and thankfulness at the same time. His greatest fear comes from the encounter with the demon that now seems to be fascinated with him, but also of now becoming incarcerated in a foreign country for an act of violence he did not commit. The way the husband looked at him concerns him as well for he does not know what the man has told the authorities.
He is very thankful for drawing attention to the house, which he hopes saved the woman from a painful death. However, most of all and in what he feels is a selfish act; he feels the commotion saved him from a direct encounter with the demon. If others had not shown up, he could very well have become the next deceased member of the Pap family.
