Later that night, we were now in Julia’s room, after receiving the signal. Holmes told me to stay alert.
Later that night. We were in Julia’s room, after receiving the signal. Holmes told me to be alert. He had a candle, box of matches and a cane.
When we reached there, Dr.Roylott was staring at the ceiling and there was something yellow with brownish speckles coiled up on his head. It had a squat diamond shaped head and a puffed neck.
The speckled band! It’s a swamp adder. He must have died within ten seconds of being bitten.
I’ll contact the police and let them know what happened.
Holmes explained everything when we headed back.
When I saw the suspicious things in Julia’s room it made me suspect that the rope was there as a bridge. I also remembered that Dr Roylott had a supply of deadly animals. He probably set it free through the ventilator and lured it back by whistling and with the milk. When I heard the snake hiss, I attacked it with the cane,
Suddenly there was a horrible cry.
Yes, and causing it to bite it’s master as it was angry and Dr Roylott was the first person it saw. I am indirectly responsible for Dr. Roylotts death but I can’t say that it will weigh heavily on my conscience
That means it’s all over. Now we will go to Dr.Roylott’s room.
