The snow was cruel this year. The horses couldn’t find any grass, and so the hay didn’t last long. Suzie ordered another eighteen rounds of hay, and was told the price had doubled due to demand. Her supplier was always one to find a way to cash in and raise his prices. Furiously, she agreed to his prices and said she had the money to pay him when he arrived.

He turned up with a smug look on his face. He didn’t see Suzie coming up behind him. Her pigs ate well that day, but she needed a new supplier.

  1. Your story is eerily similar to a murder that was in the news just a few days ago. A man didn’t have money for the new smartphone he had ordered so he killed the courier guy and dumped his body.

  2. Uhmm….. really now! Did that farmer deserve to die?? All he ever did was sell her hay! Poor farmer! Did he bring the hay? Did the horses get to eat too? Are you sure he didn’t see her coming?? Maybe he knew what she was up to the whole time and he wanted to die… inquiring minds want to know!! 😛

    • Yep, they will eat bones and all. My sister had a hay distributor who did similar things, and he suddenly went missing. Haha he didn’t really. She changed to a different supplier who was cheaper and much more friendly. Even offering to put one of the rounds (or whatever they are called) into a field for her.
