Lovely is a Mango tree which is planted by Joe and his wife Mary in his sprawling farm. She has many trees’s as her company.
Her life began when Mary had an abortion.
Doctor ‘She cannot conceive ever again’
Joe is in tears.. Mary slowly reconciles to her fate..
Mary ‘Joe.. can we plant a sapling.. we will treat her like our daughter’
Soon enough Mary and Joe plan the saplings..
Lovingly they water it, ensure it is free from insects and take utmost care of her..
Her friend Susan visits them
Susan ‘you could have adopted a kid or even a pet.. why a plant?’
Mary ‘as only tree gives everything back to nature.. everything in positive way’
Susan ‘oh I see’
Mary ‘see those kids playing around her.. she is now 7 years.. growing so well’
Mary ‘every year she gives so many fruits.. and it is given to all our neighbors. we don’t sell them’
Susan smiles back again..
Mary ‘do you know her leaves.. we use it also to decorate our houses.. she is a contributor.. giving fresh air to us’

A big axe falls on one of her branches..
Lovely is surprised.. who is it?
