WIDBODE: LIFE THROUGH A VAMPIRE’S EYES
What’s up with Waswauld?
Teyla had forgotten how big the “basement” was. She had spent a lot of her childhood running around in the never ending corridors under the house, playing Tag or Hide And Go Seek with her friends. But they didn’t feel the least bit friendly now. It was cold and draughty down there and Teyla’s arm was covered in goose bumps before she knew it.
Waswauld led her along candle lit corridor after corridor.
“What do they keep down here?” Teyla said out loud.
Waswauld didn’t answer her. Teyla was going to repeat her question in case he hadn’t heard her –– maybe old age was getting the better of him –– when he spoke:
“The Lord is the only one who knows and he is the only one who will ever know.”
Teyla stared at Waswauld.
“What are you –– brain washed? Snap out of it! This is me you’re talking to.”
Waswauld snorted and Teyla was nearly overcome by an urge to slam him against a wall and strangle him. She blinked and backed away, scared of what she had just thought of doing.
They said nothing for the rest of the time. Teyla followed Waswauld in silence in case she did something that she really didn’t want to do. Finally, Waswauld stopped in front of a dark wooden door.
“This is it?” Teyla said.
Teyla opened the door and was about to step inside when Waswauld held out a hand to stop her.
“I know why you came back, Teyla.” He said calmly.
“It’s not going to work.”
“What’s not going to work?”
“You know what I mean. Your plan. Bella put you up to it and it’s not going to work.”
Teyla opened her mouth, then closed it again and glared at him.
“It’s too dangerous, Teyla. Forget it and leave while you still can.”
She shoved his hand out of the way and stepped into her room. She stood with her back turned to him and said determendly, “No!” before slamming the door shut in his face.
