Chapter 3


 

Nothing.

 

Nothing.

 

Nothing.

 

Something.

 

Cold.


 

It's... cold.

More oppressive than anything... Cold, chilly and damp.

My voice won't work. My hands... oh god. Where are my hands? I can't feel my arms, my legs- I can't move them.

I can't even scream.


 

Where am I?


 

Where... am I?

Something is holding me.


 

Pressure.

I feel pressure. I need to get out.

I need to get out.


 

Push?


 

I can push.

It's moving... I think.


 

"Crack"


 

It's moving. If I keep pushing...


 

"Crack-crack"


 

There! There, it's working. Push! Push!


 

"Crack-thump"


 

AH! COLD! COLDER!


 

"Hissssssssss"


 

What was that? Where am I? Why can't I...


 

"Hissssssssss"


 

Wait a second, is that me?


 

"Hissssssssss"


 

Where are my arms? Where are my legs?


 

"Hisssssssssssss"


 

Are these... scales? Is that a tail- do I have a tail? Why the hell do I have a tail-


 

"Hisssssssssssss-"


 

Oh.


 

"Hiss"


 

It's because I'm a snake.
