Shadows Of Guta (Excerpt 596) A Bit Of Banter

“Mind if I pilfer two hardboiled eggs for breakfast?” Stephen asks the cook who is standing nearby.

“I always prepare more for that very reason.” The man says with a smile, and a nod yes, as he wipes his hands on a towel.

“Great, thank you.” Stephen says to the cook then turns to Zsofia and rests his head on her shoulder. “I’m heading to the study to balance last month’s records, I will see you later.” He teases as if what he was telling her was a secret and neither can help but grin at their silliness.

As Stephen passes the small table of kitchen supplies, he takes the shaker of salt with him and lightly dusts one of the eggs before biting a large chunk out of it. As he steps into the hall, he says hello to a bellhop and the two swap a bit of banter. Still laughing from the exchange, he turns to continue down the west hall toward the study when he notices the door to the basement is slightly ajar.
