Narrative Essay About A Spider

Good Essays
Spiders are the most atrocious creatures on the planet. The amount of times I came face to face with a spider is unbelievable. I swear, my life flashes before my eyes every time. There was one time in particular where I thought I was going to die; I remember it like it was yesterday. I was surrounded by nothing. It smelled like freshly mowed grass and it felt as hot as an oven. It was the summer of 2014 and my best friend, Lauren, had moved in for a few months. Lauren would visit her grandmother, “Grammy”, every so often for about a week. One day, she invited both of us to stay at her place in Mississippi for the week.

You feel as if those few seconds were actually a few minutes. Well my few seconds felt like a few years, not minutes. We drove along the path as normal then there was a sudden jerk.

After she had stopped screaming and flailing her arms, she yelled “I drove through a spider web! Don’t tell me to calm down!” She said she was blinded and it covered the entire front of her body. As she was saying this, Richie jumps off the four-wheeler. No. He flies off the four-wheeler. I turn my head quickly and ask what happened. He stares at me and then mutters “spider”. I turn to look at Lauren; she has the same puzzled look as I do. When I turn back to look at Richie, I see it. There is a massive spider hanging from my hair. The spider was stuck in my wet, muddy curls. The huge, long legged, black arachnid was centimeters from my face. It was wiggling its legs- all eight of them. I let out a screech and start swinging my arms and moving my head furiously. About a minute had passed and I finally stopped. The spider was out of my hair but now we could not find it. Was it on the seat? Was it on my back? Was it making its way up the side? Richie ran out of the mud and left us there to die. At least that’s what it felt like. Minutes pass and he comes back ready to haul us out. It took fifteen minutes to get out of that hell hole but we did

    This was the first snake able to eat a bigger living object than a raccoon.

    Since childhood, spiders to me have remained the blood curdling, bone-chilling creature, with the ability to paralyze almost everyone – from adult men to teenage girls – with fear. As a teenage girl, I seem to be the stereotypical, terrified victim of the spider. Flashback to my earlier teenage years, and I was not moving that spider. There was no way – it was not a job for me. I was determined to avoid contact and proximity at all costs, even if this meant evacuating the room.…

    I down one myself and turn the oven on full blast. The first wave of arthropods vaporize almost instantly, and the second wave of (much larger) spiders fares about as well. The third wave is much more resistant, but their health bars deplete quickly and they too crumble into ashes. We cheer and high five, but our victory is short-lived. A huge spider, anger in its eight beady eyes, tears the fuse box out of the wall with its pincers.…
