Default This is my story about a spider.

My flatmate just started laughing really loudly. & her bedroom is right next to mine… & I saw a spider on the wall like seconds before that and threw a book at it and was like FUCK OFF!! Really loudly… and she it just so happened that the timing was bad…. she was like ‘Sorry….’ & I’m like… ‘No! Not you! The spider!!’ Lol.

And the spider looked back at you. Her eyes, there were eight of them at least, were dark and unfathomable. But there was a sense of bitterness there, a sense that, simply because she was a spider, she wasn't wanted.

All through the night she worked. The web was designed to catch flies, yes, but she just did what she could.

And in the morning, across your window was the most amazing web. It was utterly precise, utterly perfect. The dew that was trapped in it sparkled like gems. The sun's brilliance was reflected around the room like a miracle. And you wondered why you ever threw that book :=]

That was really poetic and quite sweet.

Although, I'm gonna have to disagree and claim that the spider was in fact trying to kill me.

I have to agree. The spider was clearly trying to eat you o__O Mind you, you don't move about that much so it may have thought you were a plant of some kind.... :D muaha!

You are mean. But also slightly correct.

Did that spider ask the big fat ugly rat to come and jump in the bucket in my washroom? I am sure it was a conspiracy! Seeing the rat floating in the bucket first thing in the morning gave me a mini heart attack. Yes, it was alive. And it couldn't get out of the half filled bucket. Or may be it was trying to see if the bucket as half empty or half full and fell in it while carrying on with his pondering.

I asked the landlord to do something about it. He is such a nice person, he came and took the bucket away and threw the water and rat outside.
