Edwina Spider hummed a lullaby as she worked.
“Is the silk suit really necessary?” said Mr. Roach.
“Yes, very,” said Edwina.
“By the way, it’s pinching at the crotch.”
“Oh! Very sorry, sir.” Edwina made an adjustment. “Better?”
Mr. Roach groaned. “Yes, thank you. So what happens later?”
“Well. Later, you’ll feel a slight jab, but it’s nothing to worry about.”
“In a few hours you’ll definitely notice a difference.”
“I see. I found your site on the inter-web, you know.”
“Good to hear that,” grinned Edwina.
Mr. Roach sighed. “I dearly hope Edwina’s Weight Loss Program works for me.”
Each week, the Friday Fictioneers are caught and flippantly fleeced like frenetically fouled French fruit flies in the webs of our own imagination. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields provides a photo prompt and we start writing. Often photos are provided by fellow writers. This week, Douglas MacIlroy offered a macro pic. Nice one, Doug! Look here for more stories based upon the photo above: http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2014/12/17/19-december-2014/
