Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 576) Fierce Blow
“Is it near?” Laszlo asks of his grandson. “Is the beast here, do you see it?”
Tamas replies with a nod yes as his eyes stay fixed, he then points toward Stephen and Klara. The look on his face tells them something horrible is happening as tears begin to roll down his cheeks and he fights to refrain from yelling out.
“What is it you see, Tamas?” Zsofia questions as she looks at her brother.
“Evvv. . . evil.” Tamas replies with a stutter. “Hurting th. . . them.”
Quickly Zsofia looks back toward Stephen just as Klara appears to be plucked out of his arms. One end of the rope is sticking straight up, out of the water as if someone is holding it. Her mind races at trying to comprehend this for she cannot see the Guta itself. Stephen lunges in the water in an attempt to help the elderly woman but the Guta meets this reaction with a fierce blow. Stephen goes face first into the water in a forceful way that appears as anything but normal.
“Stephen!” Zsofia yells out as she starts to run toward him.
