She looked at the old Indian lady who was busily looking at the board which showed the messages, the ads, for sale etc. at the lift. She was admiring the old lady’s beautiful maroon (dark and rich red colour) saree when she noticed the “on” button for the lift. Yvonne politely said, “Are you coming?” as she gestured to the lift. The old lady, seem surprised by Yvonne’s invitation but she just smile and shook her head.
Yvonne looked at the other lift which on the 12 floor and thinking the old Indian lady must be waiting for someone. She walked to the lift and pressed and pushed the button for the 9 floor which was the level where Ivy and her parents live.
