The Slytherin Overpowerment

Theme: Home Affairs of Elephant Warriors    
I have a suspicion that the SalazarSlytherin of Harry Potter fame, once resided in my house too. Else how will you
explain the outburst of snakes all over the place? Those slimy red necked rat
eating thing, slithering through the corridors!! They are freaking everywhere. 

While growing up, every other day, I would
hear my mom scream from the kitchen, followed by tang clang clang of utensils
falling and then the footsteps of my mother running all over the place,
carrying Phenyl. My house is meticulously cleaned with phenyl because somehow,
the snakes can
t tolerate the smell.

And they have some kind of weird affinity
to Mom who I am sure must have been a descendent of Slytherin. Few months back,
my Maahi (mother
s sister) had a baby
and was staying with us. My mom cleared out a whole room for their arrival.
Since the baby was born prematurely, my mom would usually place a mattress on
the floor and sleep in the same room in case Maahi needed anything, while Maahi
and the baby would sleep in the bed.

One night, while she was asleep, she felt a
cold slimy thing on her feet. With a jolt she woke up to find a snake around
her leg. Without thinking she just ran out of the room, screaming like there
s no tomorrow. All the households in the
neighbouring five hundred meters must have woken by the histrionics of our household. 

My dad of course, the knight in shining
armour, came to the rescue.
