It was hard to believe that an actual spider had made such a large web over night. That’s why I thought it was a joke at first; my wife hanging the Halloween decorations early. On closer inspection it was real though.
‘Don’t touch it!’ my wife shouted from behind me, making me jump and spin.
‘I wasn’t! I was only looking!’ I countered back.
‘Good, because it’s staying.’
‘Well, I guess there’s lots of other windows to look out of…’ I muttered.
‘I wonder what the spider looks like?’ my wife said.
And then I felt a tickling on my neck…
