The Story – Chapter Thirteen

April 15, 2013

I dropped my head and contemplated grabbing my knees and screaming. So far today, in the space of a few hours, I had met and ridden a dragon, argued with fairies, walked down a long dark tunnel–underground, and now I was going to talk to a giant spider. Today had just not been my day.

“Um, hey there.” I said, lifting my head.

Those giant eyes blinked like a hundred tennis fans doing the Mexican wave. It started in the middle, each eye blinked a split second after the eye next to it. It was both cool and disturbing. The spider lowered its legs bending at jointed knee until it rested its belly on the ground.

Oh, silly me. I was talking to the spider when I should have been talking to the fairy sitting atop the spider.

Reclining in a glorious saddle sat a simply stunning fairy. A large emerald crown balanced upon his head, long limbs, silver wings that beat in time with the blink of the spider’s central eye and long black hair tied back in an elaborate ponytail. He held a long-wand like sceptre. “About time you got here,” he said, his voice echoed throughout the cavern.

I blinked.

“Um… sorry?” I said.
