~ 77. Tiger Comes to Kill Anansi ~


Tiger was coming with his friends to kill Anansi.
Anansi's only friend was Dog. "Help me, Dog!" said Anansi, and he told Dog what to do.
When Tiger came to Anansi's yard, he saw Dog holding Anansi down, his head stretched out on a stump.
"Chop my head off now, Tiger!" shouted Anansi. "Just get it over with!"
Tiger came rushing into the yard... and fell down into a deep pit filled with rocks and sharp sticks.
Anansi and Dog had dug that pit.
As Tiger's friends were getting him out of the pit, Anansi and Dog ran off, laughing.
