In some parts of Africa huge snakes are found in large numbers. They are like mini giants, who can gulp a full grown adult in a jiffy.This is a story of two bold men who were crossing  a patch infested with multitudes of serpents. Both of them  proclaimed that they were not afraid  of serpents. As they stepped ahead,  they  noticed two huge ones .Both were hanging from an eucalyptus tree as if prepared to attack an enemy. The two men, tip toed, took out their revolvers and without a second thought shot them. They are still hanging there!!        (98 words)

  1. Fear is the prompt for much violence.
    Good piece.

  2. Huge snakes in large numbers...whoah. I think snakes are interesting actually but in large numbers and hanging near me in a tree would be scary. :) Can you translate Kuch Khatta Kuch, I like the sound of it. :)

    1. You find snakes interesting? I am mortally afraid of them.

      Kuch khatta means ''a bit sour'' and ''kuch meetha means ''something sweet''

  3. This is an interesting take on the prompt. I can understand the fear, fanned by the horror stories. Unprovoked killing of wild animals makes me sad, though. Good story.
