Two Words by Isabel Allende was a fascinating story about a woman name Belisa Crepusculario who made living by selling words to people. One day, while sitting in her tent, a group of Colonel's men abduct her and was taken to the Colonel. The Colonel wanted Belisa to write a speech that would win people's hearts. After finishing writing the speech, the Colonel offered her to pay fifty centavos and in exchange, she gave the general two secret words. It was at this point that I had hard time understanding what those two secret words were. I never figured out what those two secret words were and the story ends without telling us what they were. I think if I knew those two words, I would have a better understanding on how the story ends and knowing those two words would have given me a different view on how the story ends.
