I can crush you right now, she thought. That’s what Thunder would do.

The snake flopped around desperately, trying to escape her jaws.

Suddenly, Bo-Bo was ashamed. The snake was now all alone against her, Sheng, and Choi Hung. It was just trying to take care of its home. Just like she was trying to take care of Sheng and the claim. She didn’t want to be like the men in town or Mr. Smeets.

She let the snake go. It hissed in relief and slid away.

Choi Hung fluttered to Sheng’s shoulder.

“Choi Hung, what are you doing here?” Sheng asked, stroking Choi Hung’s feathers.

“Dim, dust-brained dog!” Choi Hung said to Bo-Bo. “Don’t you know better than to play with rattlesnakes?”

Bo-Bo ignored this. “What are you doing here?” she asked.

“I heard from a vulture, who heard from a hawk, who heard from a crow that you were in trouble.” He cocked his head from side to side. “Where are you going?”

“Crooked Cave!” Bo-Bo answered. She quickly told Choi Hung what had happened in town. “Sheng has the map Uncle Gwan talked about! We’re going to find the gold there!”

“Well, it’s about time!” Choi Hung squawked.

Sheng was standing still, staring back toward town. “You know what?” he said. “It’s not fair that we have to pay this stupid tax. It’s not fair that Mr. Smeets and those awful men stole our gold. I’m starting to think maybe…”

Maybe what? Bo-Bo wondered.

Sheng shook his head. “But we don’t have a choice,” he said. “Come on, you two. Let’s get to that bridge.”
