A New Beginning (standard:romance, 428 words)

A very short story that... well... it's hard to explain, just read.

The moon shone high in the sky that night, the skies were clear, but my
conscience was not. I didn't know why I did what I did then, and I 
still don't know why I did it now. 

It was all a little too easy, everything was perfect, a little too
perfect. The wine, the music, the food, the lights, the perfect web of 
seduction. The spider had laid her trap, and I was the innocent prey. 

"No, I mustn't" rang through my mind, as I took another sip from the
glass, those emerald green eyes watching my every move, making sure 
that I wasn't going to try anything sudden. 

I was trapped, no chance of escape, and it was becoming clear that she
wasn't going to give me any quarter, as she moved closer and closer to 
me, as I tried to break away, but the walls restricted me, I was a 
caged animal... weak, unsafe and scared. 

She stopped close to me, and gazed, her eyes spinning the web of
seduction around me, pulling me closer and closer, like a scrap of iron 
to a magnet. 

What seemed like forever had lasted seconds, her lips touching mine like
velvet, but the soft feeling was woven with a trace of poison, causing 
a felling of cold to surround me, causing me to push her off me, where 
I ran for the door, looking for safety in the arms of the one whose 
feelings for me were true, and whose feelings for the spider were the 
same as mine. 

Alas, it was not to be, for as cold and unforgiving was the push I used
to escape, her harsh words were colder, commanding me away, telling me 
that I was never to be trusted again, her words shaking me, perhaps 
they were true. Perhaps I had let the spider spin her web around me, 
perhaps I was not to be trusted... 

No! What was I thinking? I would never let that happen to me! Never!
But, the more I denied it, the greater the truth became reality, 
capturing my soul with swift ease, and the facts bit me coldly on the 
shoulder, I had become what I feared, I had become like the spider, I 
was shallow. 

The days have passed since I fought the spider, and now, under the
bright white of the moonlight, beaming down on me, the memories of one 
year ago fading as I gazed into the eyes of my new love, and her 
comforting smile reassuring me that... the spider was now tame.
