The Dragon & The Snake

Last night I had a dream. In this dream there was a snake with golden scales. This snake would prey and feed on the young women in my village. It would lure them to secret and dark places with its lies and then strike them fast during the night and they would grow still and succumb to its poison. It would then consume the maidens slowly and once it drained its victims of their lives the snake would vomit the corpses. The saying goes, snakes shit through their mouths. One day, the village elders gathered, tired and fearful of the snake taking another one of their women they decided to consult a Dragon for help. The Dragon agreed to hunt the snake and destroy it as long as the elders agreed to teach their women to be strong and willfull enough to resist the snake and see through its deceptions. The elders agreed and the Dragon sought out the snake. The Dragon found the snake, lazy and fat, having just consumed another meal. He bit the snake open and freed the maiden. The Dragon then swallowed the snake and burned it through and through with its fire. A snake shits through its mouth and a Dragon breathes fire, the saying goes.
