A gigantic pumpkin - with large, vividly orange spider legs, raising it dozens of feet up into the air - had skittered towards him.
It’d been that sort of day.
It only takes a few seconds to reach him - it has long, horrible, eye-jarring legs, you see, they tend to assist in one’s locomotive endeavors - and it lowers itself, slowly, to the ground.
Caden takes a step back.
It shuffles forward, slightly, crushing a little bit more of the surrounding field of grain. Caden would’ve describe the motion as ‘eager’, if dozens of other adjectives hadn’t sprung to mind, like ‘terrifying’ and its host of synonyms.
The door springs open.
