Friday Fictioneers: It’s Just Business

I almost despaired with this week’s prompt.  It looks so ripe with succulent possibilities but I couldn’t think of anything for the longest time.  I’ve been AWOL for a few weeks with book signings and events.  Happy to be back with this one.  Thanks, as always, Rochelle!!!

It’s Just Business

Peaseblossom flicked her wings, wishing she’d stayed in bed.

“You had sparrow eggs and goat cheese for breakfast, didn’t you?” Pyewacket kept his eyes on the dark forest path.

“Yes. Why?”

“Never mind. Spider web makes the strongest boots. Shh.”

The spider snored in the web’s center, a black shadow against the moon. High in the oak, a luminous web-wrapped bundle danced at the end of sticky strings.

“What’s that.”

“Willowkin, the Queen’s bootmaker.” Pyewacket rolled spider web into a ball. “At least he was until today.”
