A man was shopping in a charity shop and saw a marvellous red clock. Even though it was broken he bought it. Once he’d cycled home, before he tried to fix the clock, he stared at it. He was sure he could see something slithering inside. He looked at it more closely and saw it....a snake! All of a sudden, it slithered out of the clock and wrapped itself around his head. In a flash he was on the floor with a scratch down his face. The snake quickly slithered away. The man knew no one would ever believe him!
