Jarum Emas, by Luqman Hariz
There was Salmah, a woman believed to have a fair complexion, rosy cheeks & breathtaking features. She was perfect in every way, almost heavenly, putting men in a trance.
She’s then married to a lucky man, Arman, who noticed Salmah’s odd behaviors throughout their marriage, abstaining from specific diets & never has been seen walking underneath the floor plans of their ‘kampung’ house.
One night, Arman got back early from the surau & caught a glimpse of Salmah’s rituals by accident. It was a hauntingly beautiful sight, her skin pierced with gold needles. Little did he know that what laid underneath was horrific!
