He felt every bump, every crevasse in that wall as she dragged his petrified body to her lair. He was powerless to stop it. His once agile legs had failed him...rendered paralyzed by her venomous sting. He tried to cry out...but nothing. He was awake within a nightmare. Below He could see the broken piece of concrete whose shelter He called home during his spiderling days. He remembered the times with his 160 siblings they would cling to their mother and talk about the excitement of the life ahead of them. And how they all left, one by one, to start their next chapters until only He remained to inherit the family home. And how his mother's kindness helped him through the difficult molts.
He thought of his own offspring he is probably leaving behind. And how he would have enjoyed spending the days in the sun teaching them how to stalk prey and scare humans.
But these thoughts soon gave way to a sobering reality. There will be no days in the sun filled with the laughter of children. He will never return to the comfort of the broken piece of concrete. His short future will be a terrifying hell. He tried to cry out again in vain. He didn't know what else to do. So he kept trying.
Up and up she carried him until he could no longer make out his once comforting home in the distance. Up and up until he was safety in the place she had prepared for her ritual.
He wished for death to come as she positioned herself to cut her eventual brood into his flesh.
But death would not come. His death was not her goal but his life. His life in exchange for her demon spawn. They need to feed as they grow to their next hideous form. And he will be their unholy meal.
He tried to scream out once again. Nothing.
He could see the eggs within her move and pulse in anticipation.
But suddenly a calming feeling came over him. He thought, maybe he will have his chance to nurture the next generation after all. Not of spiders but of wasp killing spiders. And he will have done his part. And as she began her grotesque task, he stopped trying to scream.
