Nopal hunter

When his retirement finally came, Marcos Ramírez moved to a lone cabin in the mountains.

His pleasant seclusion became hell when the nearby cacti and nopales came to life and tried to break into his house. They shattered all windows, scratched the wood, destroyed the electrical installation, killed his dog, and worst of all, they drank every single beer from the fridge.

Consumed by a wrath he had never felt in all his years as a carpenter, Marcos dug out of his former house's rubble and strolled the mountains looking for revenge against the walking plants.

(A nopal is a type of cactus commonly found in Mexico).
