The lingering images of recliner-size tarantulas from her dream made her shudder and look around self-consciously to make sure none were in her room.
If it's four and I go five and interrupt someone's conference or walk into a room full of tarantulas, I'm going to go crazy.
Two of the cats, young and small enough to be kittens or perfectly sized adult tarantulas, detangled and darted from her pillow to the table.
She ignored the instinct and said, "I want to roam around the main house, but I'm really afraid of opening doors to random rooms and finding, you know, hordes of tarantulas that attack me or angry prisoners of war."
She squirmed, unwilling to be defenseless with the tarantulas so close and uneasy with the warm energy flowing again between them.
