December drabbles - 4

A spider lived in a fir tree in the woods, spinning webs to catch sunshine and rainbows like fairy-lights.

One day she heard a chopping sound; her home fell to the ground. The spider held tight while her tree was carried away, ending up in a parking lot, and then a family’s living-room.

Next day the tree was decorated with lights and ornaments. An angel was fastened to its highest peak, smiling though the small child cried because the angel had lost her wings.

The spider spun new angel wings with gossamer webs that night, and the little child smiled.
