Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 574) I Banish You
“I banish you from this place and from these people!” Klara holds the loosened part of the rope up out of the water as she speaks. “I send you back to hell and away from the souls who trapped you!” Klara falls back against Stephen who is looking around frantically trying to locate the beast for it is no longer at the shoreline.
Klara’s movements are much like a person frightened of the water, or possible terrified of something that is approaching in the water, for she is looking around wildly and frantically wiping her wet hair away from her face. Her eyes are wide as she looks in all directions. Stephen takes hold of her for he thinks she is simply falling due to the current but he is mistaken.
“Isssstvan,” the creature hisses as it slowly rises up out of the water directly in front of Stephen and Klara.
