THE MANGO TREE
She lived in a Mango tree.
A small town… there was much gossip. Especially when the crew came to begin constructing the treehouse in the middle of the parking lot.
That gossip was nothing.
The talk went hog wild when it was discovered that the house in the tree was going to be a true house!
County inspectors immediately showed up; this had to be against some town ordinance.
But since no one had ever thought of committing to such an atrocity… there were no ordinances in place to stop the construction.
It helped that Sarah, the proud owner of parking lot and soon-to-be tree home, was fresh out of law school; she was not to be easily trampled.
Soon, talk died down and the treehouse became a fixture in the community.
That was until the rumors started that Sarah wanted to build on an addition to her house… a three car garage complete with helipad.
