His cell phone would ring and he would hold it tighter to clamber onto to a coconut tree.

This ritual was sacrosanct and quotidian affair. She tried her best to hear the one side of 

the conversation. However, the height and his low tone would not reveal anything.

Suzy had heard that he was engaged to a beautiful girl prior to their 10-month-old 

marriage.

People whispered that Suzy possessed strange powers.

She glared at the sagging branch of the tree. Thud. His spine cracked under the weight of 

the tree.

The day after, Suzy answered the call and smiled.

  4. I'm thinking Suzy did have strange powers. It seems she got revenge. Good story, Kalpana. Well written. ---- Suzanne

  5. Dear Kalpana,

    And the moral to the tale is never make Suzy angry. You wouldn't like her when she's angry.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

    Suzy magic turned tragic.
    I'll never understand- Why do men (or women) cheat?

  10. Well, she certainly didn't give him a chance to redeem himself. Cold-blooded sort, I feel for any man who takes up with her.

  11. Did Suzy not know he had been previously engaged? Suzy should have checked first and made sure he truly was free.
    Suzy is crazy!
