"Gaah!" Exclaimed the giant, wooly spider popping out from behind the tool box. "You startled me!" It shook its forelegs. "Whoo, I'm out of breath. You scared the dickens out of me." It looked up, its tiny black eyes glinting like hard mica. "I was out of a walk and I come around the bend and there you are, big as life! Almost gave me a heart attack. We should put a bell on you or something." It turned away, calling over its shoulder. "Well, I must scurry off. Webs don't spin themselves, you know." It paused and looked back. "Are you going to be hear long? Just asking. No? Alright, see you around."
