A long time ago, there was a prince who lived in a kingdom. He was an adventurous kid, but since he was the son of the king, the people wouldn't let him play with other kids.
One day, he went to the forest and met a snake. Because he was lonely, he tried to talk to the snake. Knowing that the snake didn't try to bit him, he kept talking. Weirdly, the snake stayed where he was and listening to the prince's story.
Since that day, the prince kept coming to the forest and talked to the snake. It was like a habit for him. He kept doing that until he became a man.
One day, the prince came to the forest like usual. He tried to call the snake but he never came. The prince was about to leave the forest but suddenly his arm got bitten by something, and when he turned to look at it, it was the same snake he used to talked to. The prince felt betrayed and hurt, so he left the forest.
Turned out the bit he received was nothing but a small scar. The prince was confused, why the snake bit him out of the blue in the first place. But he didn't think about it because he was busy, since he would be replacing his father's place in the kingdom.
After the coronation, the prince came to the forest because he missed the snake. But instead of a snake, he found a man. The man told him that he was the snake and he was cursed by an evil witch. The curse would be broke if he bit the person who trust him with their whole heart. The man is now became the prince's counselor and they lived happily ever after.
