She waited in the darkness by the stacked books. He was alive until they mated. Now his lifeless body is on the floor as she grows bigger with the babies inside her. Or that is what I imagine as I walked barefoot into my storage at work and found the largest black widow I have ever seen! She must be ready to spew babies all over my teaching materials. She was as creepy as she was shiny and waiting for me in her cotton candy web. A male carcass was on the floor under her home among insect debris. Bleh!
