The Butterfly Centre

Extracts from this document...


The Butterfly Centre From the top of the road the tropical butterfly centre had looked like an enormous greenhouse. As they parked outside in the rain on a grey September's day the weather looked like it would not brighten up. It looked cold out there and the rain certainly did not help the centre look very interesting or exciting. But as soon as Susan entered the building she could not believe how different it was inside. It was very warm and humid and certainly different from the weather outside. The scant of flowers was so sweet that Susan felt so could almost taste them in the air. The sound of nearby running water over the rocks also attracted her attention. Upon investigation she found it ran into a tropical pool surrounded by trees, flowers and other exotic bushes. Everywhere there were butterflies of varying colours from blue, red, orange, yellow and pink. Susan believed that every colour in the rainbow was on one of the butterflies somewhere as she witnessed them flying around all around the place. ...read more.


She would have only have had to read it and he knew she would be running for the door. After a while they found themselves near a little rock pool. They stopped by a bush to watch a butterfly feeding from a flower. Then Dave said, "Most butterflies only live about eighteen days you know Susan," trying to impress her. The afternoon was turning out really well. When Susan closed her eyes she felt relaxed smelling the armoured flowers. "wonderful" she said. Then suddenly she felt a sharp nip under her ear. She slapped her hand to her neck and felt something wet and warm beneath her fingers. She looked at her hand and on the tip of her middle finger was a small patch of blood. "Adam, I've been bitten," Susan cried out in a high-pitched terrifying scream. Adam looked at Susan's neck and very gently removed a tiny red spider from the collar of her white blouse. "It's nothing Susan," he said "You must have scratched yourself with your ring and caused your neck to bleed." ...read more.


And she knew she would have to get it out of her head. Se stepped into the bath and lay back so that only her head and the top of her neck were above the warm water. With her right foot she turned on the hot water tap again to increase the temperature of the water. Susan liked her baths to be as hot as possible. She began to feel more relaxed now and a little sorry for Adam. He had tried so hard to give her a nice day and for the first time since they had been married she had really lost her temper and shouted at him. Suddenly she felt a sharp pop on the side of her neck where she had thought she been bitten. She then felt a tiny trickle running out across her neck and up to her face. She shot up out of the water and looked into the now clear mirror on the wall. Running down and around her neck and arms and up to her face were dozens and dozens of tiny red spiders. They were even tying to make there way into her hair. Susan closed her eyes and screamed "Help me Adam!" she bellowed "Help me!" ...read more.
