“Candy!” the owner of the house yelled angrily. Candy rushed out of the kitchen with a tomato and knife in her hand.
“What’s wrong?” Candy asked.
“How many times do I have to tell you that I need my money? I have been waiting for two whole years. Look at this farm you’ve got. Don’t you make money from the crops? I need my money. I don’t care how you get it.”
“I will get it no matter what, but you know that nowadays no one wants to lend you money. Everyone is just greedy and they don’t want you to get higher than them.”
“I don’t care,” the owner said. “If I don’t get my money, then say goodbye to these healthy looking crops and this house of yours.”
Candy was all worried.
The next morning, she went to meet her friend, a crop-nutrition scientist.
“I really don’t know what to do,” Candy said. “Everyone is rich and I’m the odd one out. Please help me.”
“I’ll help you but you have to follow the instructions that I give you. Just a week ago, I made a new solution that will double the nutrition that the plants get from the sunlight. I didn’t feed it to any plant yet so just try it only on one plant and only once per day, OK?”
“Thank you so much. I’ll feed it to only one plant.”
The following morning, Candy woke up all excited. She had an idea.
“If I spray the chemical on all the plants,” she thought, “they will grow faster and that will help me pay o all of my debts. I’ll get rich just like everyone else.”
Weeks went by. When Candy checked the farm one day, what she saw was unbelievable. The apple, mango, banana and other trees were huge, like the Eiffel Tower, with green liquid coming out of the leaves and the branches moving like hands.
“Oh my God!” Candy screamed as the tomato tree began to rise and swallow her up....
