Andy led the tourists across the bridge and along the path to the bottom of the waterfall, chatting away. They were captivated as he gave highlights of the geological and biological history of the site. When they reached the bottom of the waterfall, he said, “Wait here,” and disappeared.

A set of huge ice cold orange eyes appeared from a cave under the waterfall. A forked tongue swept the tourists down the cave and into poison fangs, and the giant serpent slinked back into the depths of the cave.

Andy tried on the left over clothes and jewelry and pocketed the money. It was a symbiotic relationship: The serpent got food, and he got the bootie. How long would this spell last, he wondered.

  1. Ooh, some tour guide he turned out to be! And what a gruesome end to a great tour for those unsuspecting tourists.lol. I’ll bet that serpent’s nicely fat – and he doesn’t even need to hunt for his food himself! Interesting last sentence… 🙂
