11. The Rock That Hated Me

“What are you going to do?” I asked him frightened.

“I don’t really know,” he replied honestly.

“Don’t make it mad,” I told him. “Whatever you do, don’t make it mad.”

“Is this snake poisonous?” Louis asked.

“Probably,” I replied. “But don’t think about it!” I quickly added.

He took a deep breath. He lowered his arms at his sides and started to walk in the opposite direction of me, still facing the snake and not taking his eyes off of it.

“Careful!” I exclaimed when it got a little too close to him.

The snake hissed more and stuck out his teeth. I gasped. “Louis!” I screamed. The snake turned around and looked at me. I stared at Louis. “Run!” I told him, but instead he picked up a big, heavy stick next to him and held it up, ready for action. “Don’t do it!” I yelled. “Just go!”

The angry snake turned back around to Louis and hissed again. It eyed the stick, seeming to plot it’s next move. But before it could think too long, Louis swung as hard he could down at it. The snake rolled several yards away. Louis ran and grabbed me, and we sprinted far away from the snake.

“That was probably a dumb move,” he admitted once we came to a stop by a tree.

I shook my head. “No, it wasn’t,” I told him. “You’re my hero.” I wrapped my arms around him. He leaned down and gave me a quick kiss.

We sat down and stayed there for a while, until the enemy approached again. I had been sitting next to Louis when I heard that hissing noise again, so I quickly stood up with him and we began running again. It was only a few seconds before I tripped on a rock and fell to the ground. My ankle twisted painfully and some rocks cut my arms. I cried out in pain.

Louis knelt down next to me. “Kaylee!” he said. His head snapped to the right where the snake was yet again, and he quickly scooped me up and carried me as he ran.

It was a minute or two later that Louis set me down on the grass on top of a little hill. “What hurts?” he asked me.

I was breathing very quickly. “My ankle, and—and—and my arms got cut,” I told him. I sat up and rubbed my ankle. “Especially my ankle.”

“I know how to do this!” he exclaimed. “We learned about it in health! The are just some plants I need to put on your arms, and I think I saw them over there a little ways. Oh, but I can’t just leave you here by yourself! Maybe I’ll take you back to the building, but I don’t know where it is from here. What if I—“

“Louis!” I interrupted. “Just go get the plants, I’m okay.”

“No, what if the snake comes back?” he insisted. “You can’t run with a bad ankle!”

“Trust me,” I said, putting my hand on his shoulder. “Go.”

Louis sighed. “Alright. If you’re positive.” I nodded. “Okay, I’ll be as quick as I can!” He leaned in and kissed me. “Stay here, and scream if you’re in trouble.” He stood up and started darting to my left.
