The woman and the snake
This ancient story is probably our own American tale with some Native American elements on the scorpion and the frog story. In this rendition, an American Indian woman takes in a wounded snake.
She takes care of the snake, tends to its wounds, makes sure it’s well fed and nursed back to health. After the injured snake gains back its health and strength, it wastes no time in biting the poor woman. As the snake stinks its fangs into her arm, she screams, “Why are you killing me with your poison when you know I saved your life? “ Because I’m a snake” is his cold, heartless reply.
Be careful to not be in a relationship with a snake. It’s only a matter of time until hey sing their fangs into you.
