A Mother’s Heart

Once, a man was so in love with a beautiful woman. Despite his pledges to her, she refused his advances saying she would only accept him if he proved his love by cutting out his mother’s heart and giving it to her. So the man went to his mom, violently killed her, and cut out her heart. As he was running back to the woman, with blood all over his hands and shirt and his mother’s heart in his hands, he tripped and fell on some rocks and the heart fell in front of him. The man looked up at the heart, which beated and said “O dear son, are you okay?”
