Spider inside a man’s body - level 2
A young man from Australia went to the doctor to have his appendix removed. He then went away with friends to Bali. There he discovered a strange red trail on his belly. It was around two inches long.
The man went to a doctor in Bali. The doctor told him that he suffered from an allergic reaction, so he gave the man some medicine.
However, the red trail doubled in length three days later. It began to blister, as well. Another doctor took a closer look and found out that there was a tropical spider in the scar after the appendix removal. He removed the spider and sent it away for testing.
Difficult words: appendix (a small part of the intestines which is the tube which goes from the stomach to the anus), trail (a long line), blister (to form blisters which is a small bubble on the skin filled with something like water).
