But when he heard the tramping in front of the woodshed where they were hiding, he wasn’t so sure. Someone kicked the door open. Framed in the open doorway, silhouetted against a red sky, stood two men. Behind them houses burned and sky was thick with smoke.
“Can you see anyone? ” asked the shorter of the two. “Not yet”,was the reply. A torch flashed. Its beam pierced the semi darkness of the shed. The old man shrank back against the stacks of firewood, hoping that the empty drums in front would shield them from the searching light. Eyes wide with terror, he watched the light sweep over the piles of wood, then zig-zag over the peeling walls. Probing the piles of charcoal, drawing closer and closer, the powerful beam hit him in the eyes. Before the old man could turn his face away from the blinding light, his eyes caught the face the face of the tall, dark intruder. For a moment , their eyes met and held. He knew the man, he knew him very well. His neighbour’s son, his friend. But that didn’t seem to matter. Not now, not anymore. What mattered now was religion. To share the belief in the same God. The old man closed his eyes, and turned his face away. Trapped! Caught! Too late to run! Too late to pray! Too late for anything. Time to die.
“Do you see anything?” The shorter man pushed past, “is anybody inside?” The old man held his breath. With his eyes shut, his heart thumping wildly under his sweat stained shirt, he waited.
