    Just because husband disappointed you, you plan how you’ll kill him? Hanhan.. lol…

    Anyway, the fashion is on point, but I am not really feeling the story line.. lol.. Imagine! Knife? And already digging the man’s grave.

    extremely OTT, one year married and already digging his grave, should have been termed ‘psycho Val’ with the tag watch out for part 2 🙂 they can make a killing out of this, they’ve got me hooked!

    Was expecting the last picture to be him in a pool of blood. Oh well!

    The pictures are very beautiful, but am afraid of a woman with a knife, please women develop your heart for better and for worse, because that is what marriage is all about, joy and sorrow, disappointments and achievement/hopes, please learn to endure, be patience, forgive, suffer for one another, this what love is. Love keeps no record of wrong doings. Don’t kill because of love, because there will be another valentine day to celebrate. Happy Valentine to you all, selfless love is what I preach. May God bless you all.

    Na wa oo, they can like to take it easy with the storyline though but nice pictures..I want the third and last dress including the shoes..

    Weird thing about this story, its a similar to my life/family except my mum couldn’t even go all psycho with a knife..

    Loved the story and every bit of expression from Yolanda’s face!!
    And guy’s ranting about the knife, grave,killing and what not, it’s obviously an hyperbole showing emphasis on the wife’s dismay of not having her man back!! When you think of killing someone in your head, you don’t mean it literally!!
    so this is just an act on her thoughts…….I loved it
