This Is Your Final Notice

"THIS IS YOUR FINAL NOTICE.YOU. ARE TO VACATE THE PREMISES BY NOON TOMORROW. FAILURE TO COMPLY WILL RESULT IN FORCIBLE REMOVAL."

She sets down the notice, placing it beside the others.

"Ms. Turner: It has come to my attention that you are late on your monthly rent. Please enclose in a sealed envelope a check to the sum of $1000."

"Ms. Turner: For several months you have failed to submit your rent check. If payment is not made, I will be forced to evict you."

"NOTICE OF EVICTION: DUE TO YOUR FAILURE TO MAKE PAYMENT TO YOUR RENT, YOU ARE HEREBY ORDERED TO VACATE THE PREMISES BY THE 3OTH OF MARCH."

She stares at the notices for a moment, tears running down her face.

A knock comes from the door.

"Helen Turner? Open up. Police."
