The Hike in the Woods

Joseph Conk

Last Saturday my friends and I started for the woods. After we had traveled two miles we came to the woods. After awhile I cried out, "Look out", at that second a big rattle snake came out of the bushes and jumped at Frank. "Ouch", cried Frank as the snake's teeth went into his leg. "Run for the doctor," I cried.

All at once Frank dropped to his knees and was dead. After that we never went to the woods again.
