Part 1,11 Run Spider Run!
"Run Spider Run."
The Wedding Part 1 Chapter 11
Maya’s wedding day spider woman appears at the rim of the broken web: “You
destroyed my web! Why did you tell me to run? You want to run away from the
web that your thoughts have woven. You
tricked yourself into this marriage and for that you want to kill me! You
created your web with the yarn of your unhappiness and loneliness. You made
yourself believe that you love this man. So leave me alone. Don’t kill spiders.
We are useful and I have many children to feed.”
Spider woman crawls up the branch of
the hibiscus tree and continues: “During night I wove a material of exquisite
stardust into a veil for you. It is my present for you. Even if it is broken now
hang the veil above your bed and it will catch your dreams. This veil should
always remind you that you need patience, intelligence and great skills to make
your marriage work. In your new life tradition
has no big place. Not everything is useful that your grandmother taught you. You have to find new solutions.”
With this spider woman turns around,
picks up the silver thread and hides underneath the leaves.
