A short story about a spider that's starving for some reason. Read on to find out why!
Once upon a time, there lived a spider named Hazel. Hazel loved butterflies. She loved to watch them flying near her web. Whenever they'd fly into her web, she'd free them and she had to completely make up a new web again. They'd keep flying into her web because Hazel built her web near a tree in a field of wildflowers.
Over time, this caused a problem for Hazel, she'd catch butterflies and almost no other insects except mosquitoes! This caused her to become weak and hungry. She still let the butterflies go even though she was starving.
All of the sudden, a male spider built his web near Hazel's. He built it really big too and was larger than hers. He stood right by hers and looked at Hazel and her web.
"Why, hello there! My name's Buddy! Can we be friends? I noticed that your web's small and you keep releasing butterflies and then you keep having to rebuild your web again. Looks like you could use a meal," said Buddy while catching a large mosquito.
"Yes of course! I'm Hazel, it’s nice to meet you. Yes, please, I'm very hungry!" exclaimed Hazel while eyeballing Buddy's giant mosquito.
"It's ok, this isn't a butterfly, humans call it a mosquito. They come from the lake near by," said Buddy taking it off of his web and putting it on hers so she could finally have something to eat.
"Thanks Buddy! You're a great friend!" exclaimed Hazel hungrily eating the newly caught mosquito.
The days continued on and Buddy and Hazel both became great friends and caught both butterflies (which they both kept releasing) and mosquitoes. When Buddy and Hazel had young spiders, they taught them the same exact thing, which was how to eat mosquitoes and release butterflies. Everyone lived happily ever after!
