Don’t you dare come any closer…

As kids, things had been fraught between them but if only she had heeded her words ‘Don’t you dare come any closer’ that day. She had told her she had something to show her, and instead, threw the spider at her which landed in her hair.
The result had been catastrophic rather than hilarious as she’d anticipated, and now some 60 years later, despite counseling, the fear and anxiety were still there.
Just the thought of an arachnid, no matter how small, passing close to her proximity had her coming out in a cold sweat and shaking like a leaf. All colour would drain from her face, and her breathing come in short painful gasps. At one stage, it was thought she was having a heart attack, all because of a childish prank.
Now, neither could bear the sight of each other.
