Writing Prompt: Spider and Attic

Amber took one last look around to make sure that the coast was clear. She couldn’t help but wonder if she was doing the right thing. If anybody found out about this, she would be in big trouble. Especially her boyfriend. He would be crushed. 

She couldn’t help it though. From that fateful day that they met, she’d been hooked. The dark hair. The piercings. The gothic clothing. She couldn’t get enough. She had lived her life on the straight and narrow. She did what everybody told her to do. Based her happiness on other people’s happiness. Until that day.

She made her way to the attic of the building. She was feeling jittery. She could hardly sit still. After waiting for what felt like an eternity, she finally saw her. She was wearing black leggings under a black plaid skirt. She paired it with a black tank top and a purple and black tie. 

“I was beginning to think you weren’t going to show.”

“I was beginning to think I wasn’t either.”

Amber closed the distance between the two of them and kissed her hard and passionately. She lifted the tank top revealing the purple spider on her hip that she knew intimately at this point. She traced it with her fingers as they kissed.

“This isn’t right.”

“I know.”

“We should stop.”

“I know that too.”

“What if we get caught?”

“What if we are, Amber? Isn’t it time people knew who you really are?”

“It’s not that simple, Grace. You know that.”

“So you’re telling me that you aren’t into girls? That you don’t love me? If that’s the case, what is it that we’re doing?”

“I’d like to know that myself.”

Both girls turned to find Tony glaring daggers at them from the entrance of the attic. Amber was so panicked she couldn’t speak. She knew she’d eventually have to break things off with Tony but she didn’t expect things to happen this quickly. She didn’t expect it to happen like this.


“No. I don’t want to hear it. Here’s what’s going to happen. You’re going to come downstairs with me and we’re going to pretend that none of this ever happened. We’re going to go out to dinner tonight as we planned. I’m going to propose as I planned.”


“Shut up, Grace. This is between Amber and me. As I was saying. You’re going to accept the proposal and we’re going to plan a wonderful wedding. You’re going to cut off all contact with Grace. If anybody has the misfortune of finding out about this, we’ll tell them that Grace groomed you into thinking you were funny.”

“Tony, I love her. She’s where my heart is.”

“None of that. You will forget it in time. It’s just a phase. Now come along. Let’s get ready for our big night.”

“I can’t.”

“You can if you know what’s best for you. My family is one of the strongest families in the state. You will have everything you can possibly need or want. Why would you want to throw that away for somebody who the whole town wants to be rid of?”
