Paths to Death - V for Venom

She was working in her fields with other members of her family. It was the time for seeding the lands and they were very happy for the prospects after wonderful monsoon they had seen.

She was singing a song and moving backwards after the task was done for each little block of land. 

Suddenly she stopped with a jolt and she felt her leg stopping on something soft which was followed by a sharp prick and she knew that it was a snake and she has been bit.

She saw a black King Cobra snake moving away which confirmed her fears, she had heard the tales of the people who were bit by a Cobra. She called for her husband and then collapsed in the field.

As soon as he came he checked her leg to see if there was a snake bite and indeed it was. He cried for help and carried her outside the field. She was already having issues breathing and was taking heavy and slow breaths.

Her husband placed her on the bullock cart and tried to tie a cloth above the snake bite but by then the venom had passed to the blood stream and started turning her blood in to a gel. 

By the time they reached the hospital she wasn't breathing the venom of King Cobra was potent enough to be her path to death.
