A Fictional horror story about spiders!

Within the country of Australia, there are huge arachnids known as the giant Huntsman Spiders. They can grow up to a length of 60 center meters wide and are a terrifying sight, running a speeds that will sure send a cold chill up your spine. Although their bites are not fatal, they still have venomous stingers, that can cause severe nausea and swelling. Although they will only attacked when provoked, precise to say, you wouldn't dare confront such monstrosities. However, a screaming, terrified child may not know any better, accidentally enticing it to strike! Most people are wise enough to simply ignore these over sized pests, but what happens if you stumble down a dark path that leads you straight into a nest full of terrified spiders. They may just see you as a threat, deciding to swarm you in pure self defence. That is exactly what happened to poor Jamie Harrison.

Jamie was an American who traveled to Australia, to undertake a massive journey from one side of the country to the other, this is known as a Walkabout. What should have been a enlightening experience was about to devolve into something he'd never forget! Part of this adventure was to be curious, to explore the unknown and survive the wilderness. Jamie felt strong overcoming the harsh heat of the Australian outback and he was getting better at hunting and building shelter too. He was sure to become a hardened survivalist, until curiosity ultimately took away his pride and confidence forever. It was when he stumbled across a large cavern within an intriguing mountain, where his holiday turned into a horror day. The cave was deep, yet narrow, his mind was awake with imagination, thinking he might discover a long forgotten secret. He imagined epic adventure films about treasure hunters and archaeologists. Jamie truly felt like a action movie star, uncovering long lost tombs and striking rich with buried gold. His wonderment was naive however, as he had no idea that the path he was heading down, would destroy his life forever! Jamie saw one huge black Huntsman spider, staring at him upon the cave's roof. He yelped in surprise, before stabbing the ugly arachnid with his knife.

"Horrible things!" He gasped. Little did he know, that by killing that poor innocent spider, he basically told all the others hiding inside that Jamie meant trouble. The fool carried on, lurking deeper and deeper into the darkness, until eventually he could not see and decided to equip his lighter. Upon lighting it, he saw hundreds, if not thousands of Huntsman Spiders gathered all around him. He tried to run, but was caught up in their cobwebs. The spiders were terrified, they had no idea why Jamie was screaming or why he killed one of their friends. He was seen as a threat and in their wrath and fear, they jumped all over him. Biting down hard upon his body.

"Get off! Get off!" Jamie cried, fighting his way to freedom, sprinting out of the cave back outside onto the desert he so desperately missed.

Jamie was fortunate to survive, he spent hours vomiting and in constant agony from all the stings and the spiders had left behind. It was because he was crying out for help, that a couple of hikers spotted him limping. They knew instantly that he had been bitten by Huntsman Spiders and knew exactly how to suck out his venom and tend to his sickness. The poor man woke up in an Australian hospital and had no choice but to end his Walkabout early. After his horrifying encounter within that Spider nest however, he was more than happy to return home alive. Even tiny spiders petrify him now. It's safe to say he's developed acrophobia and PTSD from this terrifying tale. Never mess with nature, or it may strike back!
