Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 542) Get Started
“We must get started if we hope to take advantage of the three o’clock hour.” Klara holds her hand out to her side, palms up, and closes her eyes without saying another word.
Zsofia looks up at Stephen, and in the manner that she does it, he knows she wants him to take his seat next to her. Reluctantly, he does so and she slides over to be close to him. With her hand resting on his thigh, she lays her head on his shoulder and Stephen feels himself relax immediately. It is now that he recalls Klara stating she has a confession to make and as if on cue, she begins to speak.
“I am the one who lured Tamas here to the manor this last time.” Klara states as she opens her eyes and looks at Laszlo. “Just prior to that, I managed to trick the beast into coming here where I trapped it inside. All I had to do was find a way for this group to gather here, for this very reason, and Tamas was the key.”
“I knew it, you are not some simple visionary trying to help others, you are no better than the demon that is hunting us!” Stephen slams his fist on the table.
“Why would you do such a thing?” Zsofia asks in a frustrated tone, oddly enough, Laszlo is very quiet.
“I had to act as if Tamas was in danger. I knew it was the only way all of you would quickly come together.” The old woman grins as if this should have been the obvious deduction.
