She saw the vole from the height of the tiled roof. It quivered.
She saw the snake. Near the the vole.
She saw the commotion as a small dog bolted into the house’s yard. It didn’t see either.
She saw a small human follow. It toddled towards the snake.

Snake. Human. Dog. Human. Vole. There would be food.
