Z is for Zebra Spider.

Author's Note

Welcome to the last day of the AtoZChallenge. I hope everyone has had a great month. Spiders are agile little things, perfectly deadly to their prey, which is what inspired me today.

He could jump and climb. With his variegated clothes he could penetrate any castle undetected, silent and deadly, dropping the drawbridge or sabotaging supplies to help the invaders.

Usually defenders died on his knives before they even knew he was there, but something about the man in the red shirt stilled his hand. Those in their own castle should not look scared.

"Who are you?" the man whispered.

"They call me The Spider," he replied.

"Thank the gods. I am Ranault."

The supposedly dead prince that had started this war; things were getting interesting.

"Come," Spider said, "we are leaving."

To see all the entries in Drabblerotic, check out the list at the bottom of this post.
