Okay, guy, try this on for size: my rendition of the beginning of a skater AU for Bechloe.
The redhead didn’t see the train
“No, Bree, I haven’t seen that fox
“I figured you would be the first
one to show me,” Aubrey teased through the phone. Chloe sighed and
“I watch a lot of stupid videos,
Bree. And yeah, he’s got a good voice when he’s not doing stupid
things with it—”
gorgeous,” Aubrey laughed.

snickered, making the speaker crackle in Chloe’s ear. “No, but I

bad girl with a bad attitude, right?”

said lightly. “A rebellious streak … well, maybe.” She stepped
out on the tracks , and suddenly a horn blared to life not ten feet

was a dark flash of movement from the other side of the tracks, and
suddenly Chloe was airborne; she landed hard on her back on the
sidewalk, cracking her head against the pavement hard enough to
momentarily see stars. She raised her head just enough to dazedly see
the train barreling through the space that Chloe had occupied only a

trying to die today?”
Chloe groaned, sitting up and rubbing the back of her head gingerly,
feeling the tender spot. When she pulled her hand away, she didn’t
see any red, so she figured she was okay. “I wasn’t paying
growled the voice, and Chloe allowed her eyes to roam upwards. A
skateboard and a pair of black Chucks met her sight first, followed
by a pair of calves capped in dark skinny jeans. A gray T-shirt
depicted a recognizable band logo, and a pair of headphones were
wrapped around her neck. The face above them scowled hard at her,
though Chloe was busy memorizing the soft curve of lips, the way dark
eyeliner made midnight blue eyes stand out, the unruly locks of dark

We had two orb weaving spiders sharing a corner on our deck, perfect location for incoming bugs heading to the deck lights. The one in the top picture didn’t have a very neat web that first night, and a really haphazard one the second night while the one with the neat net was catching lots of bugs and wrapping them in silk, keeping that net neat and tidy. On the third night there were two spiders fighting but I am not sure if it was the two orb weavers or possibly a different kind? Usually the girls are bigger and in the orb spider social world, will eat their dates. In this fight the little one was winning. After several hours of checking on them I finally gave up and went to bed after deciding the small one had pretty much won the battle. I read up a bit on fighting spiders, turns out spider fighting is a thing in the Far East, Japan, the Philippines, etc, taking the place of cock fighting sometimes. I would have lost my bet on this pair as I was sure the big one could take out the little one with no problem.
