The Darn Door

The door gets shaken now and then as if someone is trying to push it open.

Leo is trying to focus on his work thus ignores it by murmuring repeatedly, “It’s just the wind.

His constant persuasion makes him complete the file, and as he pushes himself up from the chair, he hears a loud bang with a body falling on the floor.

Devastated Leo rushes to the figure that wants to speak but nothing can be transcribed. Finally, the man  breathes his last.

Leo’s eyes are moist yet curious as he stares at the door that is motionless.
