He surveyed the field. The grass charred under his diabolical feet. The sheep fled, sensing danger. All, except a little lamb. The cloaked figure approached the animal. It was bleating helplessly, having noticed its missing companions.
The man opened the animal’s jaws as wide as they would go. He watched the struggle – the fear in its eyes, the raised quivering forelegs. He suddenly jammed his claw-like fingers into its eyes. It had given up struggling – too fatigued to go on. The man let it fall.

Later, a trail of surprised spiders arrived to feast on the bleeding dead eyeballs.

    What do write so much gruesome scripts,i told u earlier that you should make a complete Gruesome Story with many twist and turns like SAW or Final Destinations..

    Yes, I remember.. 😀
    I am still working on the whole gruesome angle. I hate spiders more than anything else in this world. So imagining this and putting it on paper (editor) was a bit disgusting in my mind. I think I am trying to overcome my fears.

    Hi Shreesha,the story shook me…it worked as a therapy to unkindness!

    Hi Vijai, thanks for dropping by!
    Yes, I have tried to represent the cloaked figure in the story as the embodiment of unkindness and evil. He kills for the sheer pleasure of it.

    The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
    Down came the rain and washed the spider out
    Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
    And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

    Hey! Spiders are nice..they eat insects..and they have long legs…and a very slimy appearance 😀

    Such strong dislike?!
    If one has to shake hands with a spider, one has to do it 8 times, is that why?!. 🙂

    Oh! Why why why put such images into my head?
    No, it's okay. Overcoming fears and all that!

    Sreesha, in these short pieces you're certainly letting your dark side shine through.

    🙂 Life is unfair, Marty. I am just a poor little girl trying to channel my anger!
