day while I was walking to school I tripped over a large rock on the path and
tumbled to the ground. The top of the rock was sharp and pointy and I had
scraped my ankle. I saw blood drip from the scratch. I held it tightly so that
the blood would not leak every where. With one hand I held my leg and with the
other I reached for my school bag.
Inside was a bandage. It was there because
usually at school there were bullies and I was allways clumsy. I quicky tied it
and began to get up. But I kept on falling over. While I was trying to get up a
red back spider was lurking over in the distance. It crawled down the path and
towards me. As soon as I saw it coming I crawled away. But it was fast and
allready climbing up my leg. It climbed up my dress and up my back.
was now on my head and digging into my hair. The best thing to do was stay
still. I yelled out to the people on the pathway but no-one would listen to me.
Luckily a lady with her dog heard me and came to see what i was yelling about.
"There is a red back spider in my hair!"
Gradually the lady was not scared of
spiders. She reached into my hair and just rested her hand on my head. The
spider didnot move.
The lady only said "you have to deal with it, it could kill
you but it will soon have to go because it is a female and females...".
female! Females are even more deadly than males!" She went on with her sentence.
" Females will have to have babies so she will have to leave your head."
scared to bits but the spider would leave soon. So I went to school. Every one
kept on staring at me and asking me questions about the spider on my head. " Is
that two spiders on your head?... No three...Four!" "DING! DING! DING!''. Went
the bell. My teacher came in and screamed. I just shrugged my shoulders.
the day had come to an end it was time to go home. I walked into my house and
sat down on the couch. My mother always played with my hair when I got home. She
saw the spiders and screamed. She asked why I had three red back spiders in my
hair. I told her what happened. She just said goodnight and went to bed.
night the mother red back gave birth to seven baby red back spiders. The next
morning I found my self swamped in spiders. On my walls, bed, window, every
where! Hundreds of them crawling around my room. I raced down stairs to get a
huge jar. I scooped all of the spiders into the jar. i took them outside. There
over by the path side was a big gum tree. I let the spiders go. They ran all
through the tree. I said good bye to all of the spiders. " This tree is now
called 'Red Back Gum Tree'. It was sad to say goodbye to ALL of the spiders. But
I felt an ache in the back of my head. (the red back spider).
