"Bagheera," he shouted, "I am here. I climb! I haste! Ahuwora! The stones slip under my feet! Wait my coming, O Bandar-log!"

"Kaa! It is Kaa! Run! Run!"
"Get the man-cub out of that trap; I can do no more," Bagheera gasped. "Let us take the man-cub and go. They may attack again."
"They will not move till I order them. Stay you sssso!" Kaa hissed, and the city was silent once more.
"You are safe, oh, my pride of all little frogs!" whimpered Baloo.
"So this is the manling," said Kaa.
"Begins now the dance--the Dance of the Hunger of Kaa. Sit still and watch."
"He knows more than we," said Bagheera, trembling. "In a little time, had I stayed, I should have walked down his throat."
"Many will walk by that road before the moon rises again," said Baloo. "He will have good hunting--after his own fashion."
"Now," said Bagheera, "jump on my back, Little Brother, and we will go home."
