A long time ago a snake lived
in the deep forest. Her name is Sara. When she was young
she wanted to resemble her father, because her father is
the strongest snake in the forest and therefore all snakes
and animals are afraid of her father.She even looked like
her father. Everyday she bites other snakes or animals because
she wanted to be the stongest snake in the forest. Everyone
was scared of her.
One day she wanted to have
the strongest poison in the forest. She visited a witch
and said, "I want to have the strongest poison because
I want to become king of the forest."
The witch said, " Oh,
stupid guy you are already strong and you don't need to
bite anothe snake or to have a strong poison."
"No, I don't have enough
poison to make you become a strong snake", the witch
answered. "Okay, we make a deal if I give you the poison,
you'll give me something."
"Okay, but I don't have
anything to give", said the snake." but take whatever
you think is the most valuable.'
"Okay, do not forget your
promise", said the witch.
Then the snake had stong poison
and other snakes died from it.
She looked for one snake that
she had not bitten. She found it and bit it.
However.. the snake is... her
mother .. she can hardly believe her eyes.
She visited the witch again.
She said, "Hey what did you do to me?"
"Nothing", said the
witch " We have made a deal."
"Oh, no, no way. I do
not want this situation, please what can I do?"
"But you wanted this",said
the witch. Do you want to return everything?
said the snake.
"O.K. you have to bite
yourself, everyday and feel pain. If you don't feel pain
your mother feels pain, okay?"
And then she bit herself and
felt pain everyday. She regretted her mistake.
So from then on she bite herself
and did not want to harm other and is never stubborn.
