I'm lying sunning myself the heat on my golden baked skin makes me languid I sip at a glass of wine letting it slip down my parched throat my back is turned to you I needed privacy with my thoughts you lightly touch my nape and trace my spine down to where the g-string now wet with perspiration unsuccessfully tries to cover my modesty I hold my breath hoping that you would explore further but you stop reluctantly I turn to look at you the *rain spider looks back at me perspiration ice cold on my naked skin
*rain spider: similar to the tarantula, but non-poisonous

    WOW-- great evocative imagery-- yes, I can identify with the lazy, warm days.. sipping wine and daydreaming--- what a rude awakening when shattered by a rain spider--- huge creepy thing that it is.

    Oooh! this sounds scary, Su! Especially when you mention tarantulas. LOL! I don't care for spiders, not even the tiniest ones needless to say tarantulas or rain spiders. I haven't heard of rain spiders...I must read up about them. Love, x Annalise
