He stopped a number of yards clear of the pillar and crouched down. the sunshine that were blinding the snake snapped off and it all started to maneuver back, sliding down the final stretch of pole. The boy made one other hissing noise and the snake paused. I remembered examining someplace as soon as that snakes can’t listen, yet can believe sounds.
