I mean, it was something that only happened in the movies, not in real life.
You didn’t just create something and suddenly it became real.
But that is exactly what had happened.
I had been feeling a little lonely in my one bedroom apartment and so I had created a spiderweb and a spider of course out of origami paper.
I know, I know. It was the stuff of little girls’ fairytales, or perhaps little boys. In the beginning I knew it was just paper, but I had wished and wished that it would turn into a real one.
My mum had always told me to be careful what I wished for. I should have listened to her.
I had gotten a spider but it wasn’t my friend.
And now, it was missing.
