I DON’T KNOW ENGLISH VERY WELL. I JUST WANT TO IMPROVE IT.
I’M NOT A WRITER
IF YOU SAW A MISTAKE, LET ME KNOW
“Where are you?” Whispered her cold lips. “Where?” She stopped, and raising the lamp higher, saturated with cold sweat, she looked around the area, straight into eyes of pervasive darkness.
Many hours intervened and the sun hid behind the horizon, giving place the silver sheet of the moon, covered by dark clouds. From time to time it appeared, stroking of bright lights tree’s crowns. There was something beautiful and at the same time disturbing in this intimate touching.
To be honest, she hoped that she would find the girl near to the house, but now she knew that the girl could be everywhere. She could go both this or opposite direction, or went through the fields. But was she really so brave to choose that way? For sure she wasn’t from here and she was still ill. And ill person often thought irrationally. Thinking about it, she trembled. And what, if she… No. No. She can’t give up. Not she, but in heart she felt this horrible feeling. This feeling of powerlessness.
Supposedly, misery loves company. In her example, many companies. Over the past six weeks she was a bundle of nerve. At the beginning she thought she was strong. At last death always accompanied her. Parents didn’t protect their children from death. Death was the same part of live like birth or wedding, but now was different. She felt that there is something more and her feelings about a mystic power were justified. This mystic power tried to tear her apart, mixing up in her head, playing with her feelings. Was it a test? Was a God test her like ages ago he played with Hiob?* In that case, be it so. She would hold her ground.
She sank to her knees, putting gently the lamp on the ground, she grab hanging on her neck gold medallion and then she started to pray. Kneeling on the cold ground, with bowed head she asked God for help, when suddenly she heard something. A voice showed her a way. As if enchanted, pushed by mystic power, she jumped on her feet and run the voice, when suddenly the ground subsided under her legs,snatching lamp from her hands and later there was only a darkness.
