FRAGILE

I’ll get rid of this tomorrow morning.
They kept vigil that night, but nothing happened.
The next night both of them had the same nightmare of having been surrounded by thousands of snakes.
It was his wife who suggested to spring clean the house when they found it.
It was kept in a box, a dead white snake, about 5 feet long. With no marks on its body, the box was marked to be about 200 years old, but the snake’s body was intact.
She ran down the steps, picked the miniature up and smashed the fragile piece of art to smithereens.
Then she picked the pieces up and put it into the box with the body.
They went to the riverfront and threw the box into the flowing water.
The nightmare didn’t disturb them ever again.
