They made a strange couple, as she was wearing her Boa and Garter and he his Mocassins and chewing Wrigglies gum. He asked for the bill and because he was a fast Adder, they left quickly in his old Rattler. When they got to his apartment, he slithered into the bedroom, came out with a ring and proposed. He then showed her his enormous asp, which was in a huge krait. Although it was a civilserpent, Ana became hissterical. Her breathing felt constricted and her heart was in the pit of her stomach.
