The Mystery Staircase
I only went there once after it happened.
I knew they would come after me if they found out. I just had to see it for myself.
I managed to climb the 6 foot fence they had put up without being seen.
There was a thick fog that night but there can be no mistake as to what they did to him.
Everything had been burned to the ground and yet the staircase remained untouched.
I started thinking about what he must have gone through up there. A creeping anxiety arose in me.
Why did he respond the way he did? I knew he was innocent and could have proved it.
The burst water mains pipe meant the fire service couldn’t put the fire out and yet the staircase up to his
room remained. As I got closer I froze, when I realised the staircase was made from wood.
