It was a cold rainy day by the river. Rikki Tikki Tavi was hurt.
A family found Rikki and helped him by warming him by the fire. Rikki was feeling so much better.
Rikki Tikki Tavi met two birds outside in the backyard. Nag and Nagaina slithered up to him and told him to watch out because they ruled the yard.
It was night. Nag and Nagaina had planned to kill the family at dinnertime. Nagaina headed inside to strike while Nag fell asleep by a flowerpot. Rikki heard this and decided a plan........... Rikki killed Nag, and all of Nagaina's eggs.
Rikki asked Nagaina to fight him, but she had her mind set on Tommy the little boy. Rikki told Nagaina that he killed her eggs except for one. He held the egg up and teased Nagaina. Rikki then killed Nagaina.
The family gave him a lot of food for saving their lives. Rikki Tikki Tavi slept in Tommy's bed while the parents smiled.
