Now, I am in the biggest crisis of my life!
I never wanted to take this jaunt in the jungle, but knew it would please my father.
The guide, my father’s best friend, agreed to take me along as a favor to him.
My experience in this type of outing has been zero, thus a contributing factor to my dilemma.
The snake and I continued to stare at each other as beads of sweat trickled down my face, with my feet feeling glued to the ground, and my heart getting ready to burst out of my body!
I could not move, I could not yell, but my mind being very active filled me with absolute terror!
Then, it happened. The snake moved toward me and my eardrums blasted with the awful sound of the gun being fired.
Thankfully, my guide shot the snake just as it was trying to strike me.
