Despite the way Ryo always dealt with them calmly whenever they showed up in his apartment, Dee was well aware of his lover’s dislike of spiders, so he was surprised when, on a rare afternoon stroll through Central Park, going nowhere in particular, Ryo drew his attention to something.
In a bush beside the path was a tight cluster of tiny spiderlings, each barely the size of a pinhead.
“Look at them all, they’re so tiny,” Ryo exclaimed in wonder. “It’s almost a shame they have to grow.”
Dee chuckled. “I guess when it comes to spider phobias, size matters.”
