The Little Red Spider

Once there was a little red spider. She loved to climb up the gutter drain and wait for rain to come. When the gutters filled with rain water, she would take a deep breath and jump in. The tiny torrent carried her through the rushing water, ever closer to the drain and then… ZOOP, down she went, into the dark, flooding downspout and then… FWOOSH, out the bottom end onto the soft, slippery grass. She would catch her breath and laugh uncontrollably until Mama called her back to the web.
