55 Flash Fiction - Danger

Repelling down a free-fall without walls, she fed the line out with the expertise of practice and her pure instinct.
Straight down, without the benefit of a spotter.
She finally reached the bottom, feet planted on solid ground. She began to walk away.
WHACK!
"Did you see that? That was a black-widow spider!"

I thought that they 'walked' vertically and that with that line in tow they would rise after the fall.
Its only when that line is broken that she walks sideways...

Brush up your science programmr :)

I like how you describe her as repelling without a spotter -- I immediately thought of a rockclimber without someone on belay. Then you revealed the spider! Nicely done.
