Liza, a middle-aged woman, went to prepare lunch, leaving Barney, her 3-year-old-son, playing by himself in the backyard.
All of a sudden, a sharp cry of Barney came into the mother’s ears, and Liza rushed into the backyard and found a big snake entwining the little child with its body and trying to swallow the boy. Liza was terrified and quite angry. She made up her mind to save her son from the snake’s mouth.
It was mother’s love that made Liza forget what she faced. She took up an old hatchet from the ground and struck the snake with all her strength.
One two with the hatchet, Liza hit the snake again and again, but she felt as if she was striking a mass of solid rubber. The little boy’s voice and breath were getting weaker and weaker. Liza’s heart was broken and she got nearly mad.
Suddenly Liza put aside the hatchet and threw herself to the snake, opened her mouth and bit into the snake’s back as if tearing a tough steak. Liza was really mad.
By and by a small piece of flesh was bit off. Liza picked up the hatchet again and hit at the wound in the snake’s back madly and savagely.
Stinking blood was spraying out of the snake’s body. The snake was so badly wounded that it let go of Barney and moved back into the forest hurriedly. It had never imagined how human beings had such sharp teeth. On half way home, the snake lay, dead.
