Silken Threads: Monday Finish the Story – June 1st, 2015

Finish the story begins with:  “What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.”

The assignment said:

Collect fresh spider webs. Wind them around a piece of soft cardboard. Bring as much as you can.

The children went out into the woods. Prepared to collect lots of spider webs. They did not think about the dangers of going into the woods on their own.They even brought a picnic basket with them.

After walking for more than an hour they had to stop and have a drink. They sat down on a large root of one of the trees. Suddenly they stared in awe at this enormous spider web hanging from the branches. The threads were as thick as their little fingers. This was very scary. They could be caught and tied up with those threads.

They sat  hypnotized, looking at the colossal ugly spider in the middle. It was smiling at them and winking them to come nearer….

  1. Wow! Great story Scrapydotwo! I hope the kids “wake” up before the spider gets them into his evil web! I love the idea of wrapping spider webs on cardboard to use for wounds. LOL!


  2. I mentioned in a reply to another author how I am deathly afraid of spiders. I just relieved my childhood nightmares. This was chilling and well done. Going to hide now….


    • Yes, I think so too. Poor children they are having a fright of their life! Thanks for the visit and reading my story.


  3. What were they going to do with the spider webs on the cardboard? I love the huge spider winking at the children to come closer. Well done! Thanks Scrapydo for writing another story for the MFtS challenge. Be well… ^..^


    • Could be the (witch)teacher who wants to feed them to the spider. Thanks for reading and commenting. 🙂
