Flash Fiction: The Wizard’s New Ward

“Child, in this tower we walk on the floors!”

“Old for a spider, but not for a human.”

  1. Wow, I want this as a book! Great work at making me want to know what strange Spiderlight-like backstory this child has. And, of course, how she gets thrown into saving the world (or just herself. Not everything is marvel of course).

    1. Thank you, I wanted to do a spider character that was much more inspired by Lucas the Spider and Ponyo than rather than a scary being.

      She’s cute, curious and smart. I’ve actually got some ideas for her in a longer set of stories where she even has spider-related magic that the wizard helps her learn to use.
