It was 11 PM and Tony had still not returned. Mona inhaled the fresh pain of her new house, when she heard a loud noise outside. She went to the kitchen window to find a couple arguing in the opposite twelfth floor apartment. The girl moved to the balcony while the limping man followed her. Before Mona could grasp what was happening, the man pushed the woman down.
Mona screamed and rushed out of her house, only to collide with a neighbour. She related the events to him. He looked at her quietly and said, “Five years ago, the woman was pushed to death by the man. He was sent to prison where he was mysteriously killed. Since then, neighbours have witnessed scenes of their quarrel in the night. So, we always shut our windows by 7 in the evening.” The neighbour saw a shocked Mona returning to her house. He continued walking down the stairs with a slight limp.
