In the fantastic realm there are hundreds of dangerous creatures, among them we find the giant spiders. Arachnids that get as big as a tree. Most of them dangerous and aggressive, but at the same time most of them are not a direct threat to humans. But there’s one of them that makes the “big” exception.
The Battered Wife, as originally named. Or “Howleesh”, as called by the common folk. Why? because this creature will destroy your throat before you can say “Holy shit that’s a big ass motherfucking spider”.
The Battered Wife is a spider that chose populated cities as its natural habitat. Thousands of years of refined evolution have created the perfect disguise on which this arachnid can prey on its preferred target. Humans. The Battered Wife as the exact resemblance of a young woman in a long dress with a hood. But that’s not why it’s the most dangerous creature of the alley. It’s because she not only looks like a hurt lady in distress, but can actually act like one. This spider doesn’t talk, but moans exactly as someone that just got stabbed in the stomach. It also recreates the same posture and it shivers as someone scared to death. The Battered Wife is a basic creature with the wits of any other animal. But that little brain has the enough intelligence to use hair and blood from its last victim to get the realism it wants.
The Battered Wife nests in the sewers or abandoned houses, it can live to 30 years and spawn every 6 years hundreds of eggs. This means that one single female can spawn over 3 thousand spiders in its life time. The Battered Wife feeds only on humans and as it grows it eats absolutely nothing until it reaches full maturity and can be able to hunt. In between that, almost all of the little spiders die from other predators or starve before they get to kill anything. So that’s why this hardly gets as a plague and will never become a threat to our specie. The only big problem is (as this b*tch isn’t already one) that its growth is extremely fast. In a few months it can get to full size. And since it hasn’t eaten anything and it’s hungry, it will make the best performance ever in order to eat a full grown man.
The rumor tells that there’s a crazy scientist around that experiments on animals, and one of them was a Battered Wife he altered into a different breed. They call it The Battered Mother in Law. Why? Because the motherf*cker has wings… and flies. But luckly for us, that’s only a story of fiction.
