“Write because you love it, not because you want to become rich. Your story will be better for it.”
Lana Axe

“Noticing where his companion was looking, Zamna said, “It doesn’t taste as good as it looks, I can promise you that.” Taren paid him no heed, so he added, “It’s venomous, and I’d recommend staying away from it.” Seeing his companion still had not budged, he said, “It can jump three times its body length, and it will attack prey much larger than itself.” With a frown, Taren backed away slowly. The spider’s many eyes glistened, and its pincers moved ever so slightly. Though he thought himself too large a meal to be in danger, he didn’t want to antagonize the arachnid. Taren came to Zamna’s side with a grin. “It wouldn’t really try to eat a human, would it?” “Those spiders bite you once to paralyze you. Then, they wrap you in a nice little cocoon while you’re still very much alive. After that, you slowly begin turning to liquid, until there’s nothing left but ooze. The spider can slurp at that to its heart’s content, even if it takes months.” Zamna’s eyes betrayed no lie. Taren took one last look at the massive arachnid.”
