New Caledonia, Age 10

Long long ago snakes had feet but there was one particalar snake that wanted more,more than everyone on the plant and his name was Mark.He wanted so much that he asked the mighty god Iris that he could have wings,hands,claws and other things but Iris was getting pretty annoyed so she gave him his wings and gave him his hands but nothing else now Mark was getting angry too and gave Iris a lot of greif.A long time past and Mark grew in pawer , in the end Mark turned into a terrible beast.He started eating villages and its people. He started eating all the animals and their friends. But Iris had been watching him all that time and in the end Iris got so tired of getting shouted at that she took all of the snakes feet away and all of Marks body parts away. Thats why snakes have to slither.
