A snake slithered through the forest.
He looked at the hill, just to notice something from the corner of his eye.
A BOULDER. COMING RIGHT DOWN THE HILL, ABOUT TO HIT HIM.
He tried to slither away, but he was too slow. He was dead meat.
It got closer. And closer. AND CLOSER. He looked at the boulder, ready to get squashed.
But then, the boulder
Right Off The Ground
And was thrown backwards by…
An elephant! (elephants were his enemy, but don’t be confused) Then everything was good again.
Later on, the snake was slithering through the forest again, looking for home.
Soon he stopped at a river. Inside it there were crocodiles. He looked at an old bridge.
He went on it and tried to get across. But then he accidently slithered off, into the crocodile- infested river!
This is the end, he thought. He closed his eyes.
He opened his eyes, to see he was in complete darkness.
I must have been eaten, he thought. But then he heard…
He was in a cave!
STOMP. STOMP. Everything was shaking.
STOMP. STOMP. Something brown came out from the darkness. It had claws and paws, with a nose, of course.
It was revealed to be a … bear! It ran after him, ready to strike.
His cubs were hungry, but he didn’t care and soon it swung its claws at him.
But he missed… Just then, six angry crocodiles stormed in.
They jumped at the bear and that was the end of the bear.
“Phew!” said the snake, as he slithered away.
