The Snakes Revenge

A man by the name of of Zinfei was boating down a small creek when he saw an unusually large snake. He threw a rock at her so hard that he knocked her head clear off. He felt sorry t he moment he did this because he recalled the many stories he’d heard of such snakes seeking revenge on people even after they had had become ghosts. In order to escape this danger he dismembered the body and the head of the snake which he carefully buried in the earth. But this could not save him, and on the anniversary of the snakes death it’s spirit took his life.
