An Odd Room, a short story from A Tale of Two Villages......
An Odd Room
n a hot July night in
1962, the starry abyss above was the only companion of young Amadeo, who
trotted silently on the path leading to Cinema Otranto. The sounds of
his footsteps were light on the pavement.His back was arched; he seemed to be crouching, as if not desiring to be
seen. Yet a furtive wind blew over Amadeo’s face, pulling back his brown hair,
revealing a stout nose, dark, profound eyes, square chin, and a pallid
countenance.He instinctively slung his
arms over his face, averting the wind that had uncovered his features. He
halted suddenly, and glanced back at the shops on the boulevard he was
crossing. A strange effluvia emanated from somewhere; an indecorous,
almost nauseating smell.
