The Spider and The Runner

The stickiness gripped his face. He pawed at it frantically, attempting to release himself from its entrapment.
“Damn, how did I not see that web?”
He picked the last strands from his face and restarted his run.
The clip of his pace returned to normal.
He exited the woods and followed the path across the field.
He had forgotten all about the hiccup in his morning run when suddenly he felt a sharp sting on his neck.
“Ouch!” He reached to swat his attacker.
As the spider shot to the ground she sighed, “Another unwanted relocation.”

    Dear Treerabald,

    One ‘P’ in entrapment. Sigh instead of sign at the conclusion? Edit, edit, edit.

    Good story, though. Spider’s frequent flier miles. Keeps the gene pool from getting muddy.

    Aloha,

    Doug
