A super short story about arachnids

The prompt on Peirene Press’s short story contest post on FB was to write a short story in 3 sentences, under 30 words, inspired by the following image.

This was me: “I a Redback, she a Wolf – there are laws, but for love. She’ll bite off my head, liquefy me; no matter. I will be inside her, one way or another.”

This entry won: “His patterning thrilled her. He rounded on her though ambition tugged him towards a different fate. She, entangled in the silk he spun, wound it around her like a shroud.”

Ok, that was pretty good.
