Drabble: Web of Romance – by Tony Steven Williams

by specklit

I love you, Miss Muffet.

You are so beautiful, sitting on your tuffet, eating your curds and whey, that you send shivers up and down my cephalothorax.

Can I be your special pet, Miss Muffet? You could stroke the soft fur on my abdomen, tickle me under my pedipalps. Life would be so wonderful.

See how handsome I am, fangs gleaming and sparkling, polished with beetle-wing wax, rinsed with early morning dew!

Oh why doesn’t she look at me?

Here I come, Miss Muffet. Perhaps a gentle nip?

OH, MY GOD! What a bloodcurdling scream!

Did I frighten you away?

Author’s Note: Well, I just wanted to tell the Little Miss Muffet nursery rhyme from the spider’s viewpoint!

  2. Fantastic story. I love spiders, when they are out in the garden eating other insects and away from me. I would not want one as a pet.
