Oct_Image02The Apartment Next Door
by Asena Lourenco

The wooden door slammed in the face of the cold breeze, keeping out its unwelcome guest. He kicked his black boots off lackadaisically as leaves of all shades scattered across the floor, letting out a sigh of exhaustion as he walked to the skinny armchair. He planted his ankles on the small glass table in the centre of the room as he reached for the television remote. His growing dark pupils stared past a curtain of hair. A strangled scream sounded from behind the white pillars on the right. His chocolates coloured eyes darted to face the sound but were only greeted with the dark night. With a shiver, he lifted his feet and stumbled over to the pillars, lamp in hand. A single dress floated in the night, awaiting his arrival. A few moments later, a beautiful woman with jet-black hair emerged from the dress, her face not in sight…
 The camera footage is still played over and over again by puzzled police officers in an attempt to solve this mystery but no one can figure it out. Some neighbours say that they can still hear his unfinished scream from the apartment, next door.
