One Floor Below

On a Friday morning, as he climbs up the stairs home, Patrascu hears from inside one of the apartments on the second floor a violent conflict between a woman and a man. The noise in the apartment suddenly stops, and out comes Vali, his neighbor from the second floor. Patrascu gives an automatic nod and wordlessly walks up the stairs to his apartment.

He changes, organizes his folder with the papers he will need that day, puts fppd and water in the dog’s bowl and off he goes. When he comes back from work, Patrascu is surprised to see neighbors and police swarming around the building entrance. Laura, the young woman from the second floor, was found dead, following a blow to the head.
