I am in the third building from the right, in the third unit on the eighth floor./// I don’t know if you can see me or not, but I can tell it’s not easy for you to find me. I am the first person to speak. They had told me the buildings were under construction. They said they were being pre-sold. But I later found out people lived here before, but now they are all gone. The buildings are abandoned. I am in unit five on the sixteenth floor now. I am the first person to speak. They had told me the buildings were under construction. They said they were being pre-sold. But I later found out people lived here before, but now they are all gone. The buildings are abandoned. I am in unit five on the sixteenth floor now. The person whose voice you heard from the eighth floor is the one who thought these buildings were being pre-sold. She’s me. I was sure from day one that the units here had been pre-sold a while ago. And now no one is willing to live here anymore. I am now in the sixth building from the left, unit ten on the twenty-second floor. The previous person was the first person, and I am no one but the third person. The other two think this place is abandoned, but in fact, there is no building here. We only think there is. I am in the tenth building from the right, unit two hundred and fifty, on the thirtieth floor. It’s unclear who I am, but whoever I am, I previously believed I was someone whose voice you heard three times before. Newsha Tavakolian
