For Friday Fictioneers 100-Word Challenge: 12 January 2018

It was a hot and balmy summer day. Early on the prowl, he spotted the young widow basking in the sun. She appeared lonely and in need of company.

Filled with lust, he approached his prey slowly from behind. To his surprise, she offered little or no resistance when he mounted her. They made love for what seemed like an eternity.

In the afterglow of the moment, it was the young widow’s turn to return the favor. It was snack time. As he lay exhausted yet totally gratified, she wrapped the intruder gently in silken threads and ate him alive.

      yes, the male spider sacrifices himself so his genes extend to the next generations.

    The male spider never learns. Well, I guess he only gets one chance to, and then it’s too late!

    The black widow strikes…again. The prompt of the spider kind of made this ending the obvious one for me at least, but it was fun nevertheless.

    It’s kind of like the song, “Love Stinks” My wife and I were doing the Right Brain vs. Left Brain Test. It is so bazaar. Clockwise,,, then counter clockwise. I’d see it one way and my wife the other. Watch it long enough and then we both saw the same. Then we made like spiders,,,,,, and ate lunch.
