It was a cold winter evening, an old man had done his work and was going home from the fields.
On his way he saw some thing on the ground. He looked at it and found it was a snake.
It was not dead,but it couldn’t move because it was so cold.
Poor thing, the man said, I must try to save your life.
He picked it up and looked for a warm place to put it in.
But how could he find one in such cold weather? So he decided to put the snake inside his clothes, right next to his heart.
A few minutes later,the snake came back to life and began to move.
When it had become strong enough.it gave the man a deadly bite.
He killed it and went on.When he got back,he was very ill and had to lie down.
He knew he was dying.
