Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 496) Frozen

Stephen looks up at the doorway but with no electricity to power the lights, he still cannot see past the glow of the few candles left burning. One by one, they are slowly losing their flame as the wax and wick reach the bottom of the holders.

“We are going to be in the dark soon if we don’t find more candles.” Zsofia says to the group.

“I was expecting the night to be long and dark. I have more in my bag.” Klara says as she points to the small black leather satchel sitting next to the door to the bedroom.

Tamas stands up and walks over to pick up the bag when he stops short and stares out at the door to the hallway. He is so quiet in his movements that it takes nearly a minute for Zsofia and Stephen to realize he has frozen in place. Looking at him, Stephen follows his gaze to the emptiness outside the room.

“Tamas.” Klara says as she turns and walks over to him. “You can see it?”

Tamas, with his eyes wide and focused, nods his head up and down without looking away. Zsofia stands up, joining her brother and in a protective almost demanding way, puts her arm around him. Stephen watches Zsofia’s behavior and cannot help but think she is afraid Klara may harm her younger brother.
