Scary (or not!)

Here we are: creation # 6...

I felt that prickle on the back of my neck again. My breath caught in my throat. I closed my eyes and tried to calm down. It was probably nothing. I leaned back further against the tree and tried to focus on my book. I felt it—something—slide down my shirt! All I could think about was the tarantula my brother, Adam, bought when I was thirteen. He'd apologized a million times for letting it escape into my room but I'd never forgotten. I could still see it's black fuzzy legs crawling on my skin. I jumped to my feet and practically ripped off my sweater. I shook out my tank top. And then I saw it. Sitting ever so still on the ground was my attacker—a crisp red Autumn leaf.
