One Minute Fiction — Floors and Doors

“That’s strange,” he said.

“What’s strange?” she asked.

“That brick building across the street,” he said.

“What about it?” she asked.

“There’s a big red door on the ground floor,” he said.

“Yeah, so?” she asked.

“There are two white doors on the second floor,” he said.

“Yes there are,” she agreed.

“And on the third floor there are no doors. Just a window where a door should be,” he said.

“So what?” she asked.

“That’s strange,” he said.

    The third floor window looks like it is used for pets to get out to the balcony.

    I don’t want to try and explain this three-story setup. But it’s common that old houses have windows (at least one window per house in the kind of house I’m speaking of) that go out to something like a deck.

      Sorry; meant to say this is common with a two-story of some character from around the turn from the 1800s to the 1900s and soon after. I’ve seen it in California and in Missouri. I haven’t spent any time with people who own old houses in the state I live in now.

    Superman lives on the top floor – he does not need any stairs.
