comment S1 と S2 conditional S2 being in past tense
The use of すると in stories is good way to explain the use of と but, consistent with my deleted explanation, S2 is "what happend next", which is something beyond the control of the subject/main actor in S1. How did you parse ウナギを家の外に置いて? This seems to be an action under ごん's control.

comment How to parse 友だちに〜聞かせられた?
@dainichi: 新完全マスター文法N3 (p88-91) and Dictionary of Basic Jpse Grammar (p455). I should have said, this applies when action takes place in the past. Thank you for bringing this up. I have made an additional edit to my answer.
