Said the Spider to the Fly (Prose-Story)
Spider and the Fly (prose)
Spider and the Fly
The Spider and the Fly
There was definitely a reason for the fly to land in that location
A (reason) no doubt!
Maybe there was another fly
he was strongly attracted to.
One would never know why the spider lured with such enticement.
When the fly arrived she saw
the beautiful invertebrate insect, the spider.
It seemed the fly was delectable
and coming at the right time to feast on.
The eight legs of the spider stretched
as if it could not sustain itself.
First it must toy with the fly,
although it had already captured it.
The spider asked the fly into his web
read the fly his poetry.
Although while listening to the deep intelligence of the spider
The fly knew it was about to be devoured.
Willingly it stood in the web.
Even trying to escape,
the fly knew its desire to be devoured would keep her there
When the spinet of the spider touched her
the fly submitted to be his delicacy.
It was eaten with such ravishment,
the excitement of the experience
was beyond any control the fly had.
What she didn’t know was
the spider’s appetite was uncontrollable.
Anything in his web was taken
and put to whatever use the spider wanted.
Later, (the fly’s spirit) told the spider that
she knew when she entered that it would be her fate to be devoured
The spider showed her a derisive smile
The fly knew there would be no escape even in spirit from his web.
Even if she managed to leave its silky threads would cling to her body
After the fly was devoured she knew her remains would be cast away
Maybe someday, the spider will be starved
and experience the sensation of starvation.
The fly knew the spider would come back for the remains.
Until that time comes
she is left with a disfigurement and a beautiful experience.
