A spider describes her dinner in a 100 words.
Sensing movement, eyes opened, hoping that some juicy prey had ensnared itself in my sticky web. Instead sighted his dark form approach stealthily, powerful legs place deft steps upon silky strands, avoiding entrapment.

Gazes locked, stimulating primordial desires to procreate, exciting us both. After pleasurable foreplay, he finally mounts and injects me with fertile sperm.

Delicious dinner awaits. Lover’s nutrition rich corpse!
