He feels spider steps skitter across his skin - “Webs, webs!” he howls - her black voice-caw

The light thing string

Her black voice, caw-caw-caw, she sees him through the window. “Go away!” he cries, “Leave me with my morning!”

Her head, a swivel thing, follows his descent. The concrete walls of the cellar, veins protruding, he hears a liquid fluid drip as he walks into a web.

His hands claw at his face, web film on his lips. Something crawls down the back of his shirt. The pull string light bumps his nose but he can’t find it.

He stumbles blindly to the other side of the room, clawing at his spider shirt until it is torn away. He feels spider steps skitter across his skin.

“Webs, webs!” he howls, rolls over on the floor. Alive, his naked skin crawls. He covers his ears, closes his eyes. The horror sound won’t go away. A gurgle liquid deep emanates from somewhere within.

He sneaks an eye open, a faint light is revealed. Madness held at bay, he crawls toward it. On his knees, hands raised over his head reaching. Saliva, he giggles at his gurgle.

Through the filthy pane of glass, her black voice, caw-caw-caw, she sees him through the window.
