I will post the next chapter once the first has been identified or reasonable time has passed. Say a week. Communication is key here - i.e. is anybody out there reading/ interested in this?
Can you identify the song?
Susie thrashed about, her quilt wrapping around her as she tossed and turned within her sleep.
A snake slithered along the branch above her head.
‘I dreamed thissss dream so many timessssssss,’ it hissed.
Susie backed away from the tree.
‘Now I have found you after ssssssssearching for ssssso long.’
‘What do you want?’
‘Want? I want you, of course. Come let me hold you. You have no idea how long I’ve been looking for you.’
‘Me? Why are you looking for me?’
The snake wound its way down the thick trunk of the tree, coiling up beneath its thick green canopy.
‘Everything about you sssssssoothssss my ssssssoul. Ssssssuch a lovely sssssmile. Eyessssss of blue I could drown within them. Your voice like velvet caresssssssessss my sssssskin, it’sssss almost heavenly.’
The snake giggled. Which sounded really odd to Susie, but she was no longer afraid as she looked into his eyes.
‘You’re the only woman for me, come let me hold you.’
Susie purred as the snake slid around her ankles, slowly creeping up her body, his coils tight against her skin as, with a start, she realised she was naked.
‘I’ve dreamed this dream so many timessssss,’ said the snake, its head right by Susie’s. Its mouth opening, its tongue slipping out, its fangs glinting.
Susie’s eyes opened.
