fff55. Phobia

Dianne sat paralysed with fear until the light faded, legs drawn up into her chair so the beast couldn’t reach her. Unable to see where the terrifying animal might be, she remained until rescue arrived.
It did not help her temper when her friend laughed out loud: “It’s a tomato top - not a spider!”

**********

It really happened. Honest.

Oh, how silly she must have felt. But I hate spiders and there is a bit of a similarity. Fun frightful 55!

These fear with surprise endings appear contagious. Nice one.

Now that's real arachnophobia!

Ha! I've been fooled into thinking inanimate objects were attacking me, too. Paranoia can be fun. ;_)

My mother passed out when someone tied a tomato top to a piece of cotton and repeatedly dangled it in front of her ...
