Part 6 - Grandma Spider Finds Light.


Too well the animals know the dangers of FIRE.

As FIRE burned the trees in the woods; and the animals could smell their flesh burnt by FIRE. The horrifying taunting flames of warmth and light were a threatening, teasing, terrifying killer. Through the trees an evil villain had arrived. Still the animals wanted to see in the darkness, they feared the wind that howled at them, and they dreaded the cold. They needed light, not fire, tiny Grandma Spider offered, “I will bring the light."
