Spider.

You came in to shelter from the rain. I watched you for a bit. I banged the screen to make you fall off, but you would not let go. You weren’t one of the fast ones, though.

I put my cupped hands around you and blew you out, into the garden, with your spindly brown legs waving. Little tegenaria, you must think I was a monster.

But I saved you.

  1. We don’t kill spiders in this house either. I’m glad you saved him/her 🙂

    I also save spiders. Btw–peppermint oil keeps spiders away. If you put some with water in a spray bottle, it can help keep them out of your house. ❤
