AN UNFORTUNATE ENCOUNTER WITH A SNAKE

A SNAKE HAS A SNACK

We were in big trouble. That boy kept repeating "this is private property." we hid behind Gramps and hoped for the best. He winked at me when he told the boy that I could do something with that knothole in the tree. I pulled out a rock from the river and threw it in there. Gram saw something and screamed. She asked Gramps if the snake was poisonous? It was a water moccasin! It took a bite of Gram's leg and ran into the water. I was so scared and nervous. He told me to get out of here. I held her hand while Gramps took that boys knife an made a slit in Grams leg across the snake bite. Gramps got on his knees to suck out the venom when that boy said " allow me." The boy placed his mouth on grams leg and sucked and spit, sucked and spit over and over. We asked where the nearest hospital was and then we were on our way.
