Larger Than Life

"It was carrying a mouse!" Ryan's voice rose to a mouse-like squeak itself.

Stephen fought back a laugh that would have had his partner pouting for a week. "I know. It's alright. It's just a huntsman spider."

Ryan was not reassured. "Just a huntsman?"

Sliding past the frozen Ryan, Stephen took the potpourri jar from the window and emptied it into the sink.

"It's okay," Stephen said soothingly. "It's from Australia."

"Then it shouldn't be here!"

"I'll give it to Abby in the morning."

"It was carrying a mouse." Ryan whimpered.

Stephen snapped the lid closed. "I'll put it outside."

*g* I don't mind spiders, myself, but that one was a bit much even for me!

Loved how the guy said it was working as a pest exterminator and paying rent!
