“I’m asking for the last time! Where the hell did you get this plant from, Jim!”

Jim used to go for walks in the forest nearby. One such day, he found which looked like a meteor fallen on the ground. A small plant was casually growing on it. He brought the plant home, put it in the glass bowl and proclaimed that it’ll bring luck.

Now, they are being suffocated by the branches of the same plant which seems to have covered up everything in the house.

“I told you, honey! You were watering it too much!”
