Kyle was not a very good hugger and Kit made a mental note to hug Kyle more when she saw him, so he could practice hugging. It was a very important life skill, in Kit’s personal opinion, and one she used often and with relish.

“You need more hugging practice,” the redhead informed Kyle, looking up at the older boy seriously and nodding her head as she agreed with her own words. Jaws’s little head popped up by Kyle’s shoulder, and Kit giggled a little. Jaws was so cute! Darby rubbed his two front legs together and backed up a little bit on her shoulder.

Darby, apparently annoyed at being squished twice, jumped from Kit’s shoulder on to Kyle’s shoulder and rubbed clicked his fangs together, looking down at Kit. She sighed and let go of Kyle. Silly Darby. He was such a good tarantula, even if he did sometimes jump. The book that Jessie had given her for Christmas said that tarantulas usually didn’t jump very far, but Darby was a big tarantula so it made sense for him to be able to jump farther than other tarantulas.

        Since he had just asked Kit to repeat herself, he probably was expected to have paid attention and actually heard her this time. This was difficult, however, because her spider was doing its creepy... more
