Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 421) You Have Grown
“Your night of drinking was very informative, you know the Guta far better than you think!” Klara smiles and the creases of her face darken in the flickering light.
“But what is a Guta?” Stephen asks honestly not understanding the full impact of its abilities.
Klara straightens in her chair and looks at him, reading him, searching his eyes for truths. Trying to stay strong and in control, Stephen does not look away as he studies her in return. Slowly she begins to lighten her gaze and a gentle grin forms across her lips.
“You have grown Istvan.” She says in a low tone as she reaches across the counter and pats the top of his hand with her fingers. “Even with the short time you have been here, you have strengthened.”
“You haven’t answered my question.” Stephen states as he slowly slips his hand out from under hers and she does not speak immediately.
“The Guta is feared for it is a true demon.” She folds her hands in her lap and looks up at the ceiling for a few seconds before continuing. “There is evil in this world and the Guta is a spawn of the purest form. It searches out prey to mistreat and abuse until it no longer wishes to play or no longer finds pleasure in it.”
