midas touch

22

He was one of those people call “full of garbage.” The only difference was he was dirty in his appearance too.

He learned early in his life that if you lavishly bribe people, polish their ego and prove to them that you are pitiable to the most pitiable creature in world- not by boasting but by acting like one they will buy everything you sell.

Now, he did not had any problem with his family members, that is, he did not liked them but heck there was no personal enmity from their side, it was all from his side. He wanted all of the family property for himself.

There was one problem, throwing out a substantially popular widow mother and unmarried sister to street was not very easy in India, so he hired a woman as his wife and together they first convinced everyone that his family was really mean, wicked and twisted and then they threw them out, after buying the local powerful entities off, so they don’t dare to return and make claims on property. Sounds unreal? Well, ask those who have faced it, and there are quite a hefty number of them as per news papers.

Once he got the property he terminated his contract with his hired wife, thinking about marrying his lover who was now a widow.

Something happened overnight.

There was a king in mythology whose touch transformed everything to gold, his touch transformed everything to poison- as deadly as the poison filled in his heart and soul.
