An Excerpt

Cobwebs were everywhere; in places, they were as thick as candy floss! Orson was looking towards Cecilia when his eyes widened, and he stood as still as a statue.

“Don’t move, Cecilia!” whispered Orson.

“What are you looking at … what’s going on?” Cecilia spun round and came face-to-face with the creature Orson had seen.

The creature hung from a thick thread suspended from the ceiling. It didn’t move, just watched. It was a huge spider with massive hairy legs, two of which had pincers on them, like a crab. Its big eyes were green, and drool dripped from its large mouth, which it opened and closed noisily, salivating at the thought of devouring Cecilia.

Before Cecilia could scream, the gargantuan spider cast its silk and started to cocoon her.

“Do something, Orson!” shouted Cecilia.

Orson looked at Cecilia with worried eyes; he didn’t know what to do, and the spider had bound Cecilia up to her waist.

“The staff!” yelled Ractus.

Orson looked at the staff and pointed it at the spider shouting, “Fire!”

Nothing happened. He shook his head; it was full of thoughts, which kept him from focusing.

The spider glanced briefly at Orson; it stopped spinning, grabbed Cecilia with one of its pincers and scuttled down a tunnel, leaving a trail of echoing screams.
