The white door closed without any sound behind them. Kamal and Mehmet were standing just outside the flat. The lift was on their right hand, the stairs on the left. Kamal took his first step towards the lift. But he immediately realized that Mehmet had used stairs when they came, and had told him that he never used the lift. “After all, its just two floors. A total of 40 steps,” Kamal recalled Mehmet saying that when they had entered the building.
Yes those were just 40 steps, ten each on every set. There were twenty steps for each floor. There was nobody on the floor. In fact every floor was having just two flats. It was a four storied building. The walls were painted white.
