The Apartment #227

by

It was as if someone had flicked a switch.
Maya and the quiet woman sob. They hold onto each other, unable to comprehend what they've witnessed, unwilling to believe it really happened.
Harry asks Daniel what's happened, knowing his words are futile. He had the closest view but he cannot believe his eyes.
Tisha desperately tries to stifle the scream that demands release at the sight of Daniel. She fails.
And Daniel himself writhes and screams on the floor, holding the burned flesh of his arm against his chest.
But there is no sound.
Switch flicked.
No sound at all.
