Packed Lunch

The articulation of her limbs was so precise it was mesmerising.  The way she moved was almost as fascinating as her appearance, each arrangement and rearrangement of muscle and joint so exact it seemed rehearsed; yet how could movement this intricate ever be learned?  He watched, awestruck, as she approached, unable to look at anything else, till suddenly she was directly in front of him in all her terrible beauty.  The intervening moments between there and here were like stop motion images in his memory, though this impression did not contradict the fluidity of her gait.

As he gazed at her, she gazed deeply into him, an abbess of the abyss.  Then she kissed him and he froze.  He watched as she enfolded him in her silken power and it was almost tender.  When she was done, she left him there, dangling, and all he could do was follow her with his eyes as she returned to the centre of her web.
