A NICE PLANT

Copyright Sarah Potter

By Neel Anil Panicker

“At this price it’s a steal, Akshay”.

‘It’s something the landlady said.’

“Now what’s it Akki? That she stays in her bungalow with her paralytic husband. That they bought this house back in the 80’s when the rates had slumped southwards. That her two children have flown the nest and settled abroad and rarely visit them. Is that what bugs you, dear husband?”

‘No, something else, Susie. Did you hear her say this place been locked ever since she bought it ten years ago?’

“So?”

‘How come there’re fresh plants on the balcony sill. And traces of blood…warm human blood?”

  1. Dear Neel,

    Your link did work. The fact is if it hadn’t you wouldn’t have been able to link at all.

    This sounds like they just bought Little Shop of Horrors. I’d be running the other way. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle
