(55-word flash fiction)
The boy had killed its mother. The spider waited for its chance to avenge. Finally, it saw him at the open window. It jumped, aiming for his face. Stunned, the boy lost his balance, fell backwards, hit his head against the bed-post and passed out. No one heard the thud. He bled to death.
wow…this one gave me goosebumps! :O
Ow! This is chilling. I hate spiders and I always squat them to death; I now have some re-thinking to do now.
🙂 I gently push them out of the house. My husband’s the spider-killer. Don’t let my story stop you from killing them 🙂
