Standing on the dusty floor, was a tall creature. The four children Aisha, Maria, Ahmed and Bilal were frozen to the front step in horror. The creature came out of the shadows. Aisha and Maria gasped. It looked like a mixture of woman and snakes. It was a woman. But the hair of the woman was an army of hissing snakes. Parts of the skin were scaly green. The worst was the face. The face was pointed, sneering and snarling. The lips were thin and a snake's fork-pointed tongue was sticking out. The amber gleaming eyes were slits. The children trembled and shook with fear. The snake-woman talked, "Who isss thisss?" she asked, hissing. Every time she pronounced the letter 'S', it went on longer than usual. The children took a step backwards and the silvery moonlight fell onto them. The snake- woman saw them properly for the first time. Her now glinting eyes, looked delighted. "It isss children!" she cackled." We finally have sssomething to eat!" There was movement behind the snake-woman and hundreds more appeared, staring at the children, licking their lips. The children turned around to run, but the snake-women grabbed the children's hands and dragged them inside, slamming the door shut. "Let us go!" Bilal cried, wishing that he had never come. " Oh no," said a snake-woman." We will eat you four becaussse you have been poking your nossses in other peoplesss busssinesss," "You guys are mental!" Ahmed shouted. "What did you call us?" said the snake-woman, her eyes flashing dangerously. Maria elbowed the snake-woman holding her. She immediately dropped unconscious, thought no one had noticed. They were all too focused upon the four children. The snake-women seemed really delicate. The crumpled at the slightest push.
Aisha had noticed and gave Maria thumbs up. She dropped to the floor and kicked out, slamming her foot into the snake-woman's stomach. The other snake-women, realized what was happening and lunged forwards for the children, pinning them down. "Ssssso you think that you kidsss can fight usss?" she asked, glaring at the children angrily. "Take the girl first," she ordered to the snake-woman beside her. " Yesssss, Ingra," she said. The snake-woman reared back, then struck forwards, sinking it's fangs deep into Maria's skin, who fell down, howling and crying in pain.
