bestiality (?), supernatural elements, also Kinjou refers to monster!Makishima as "it"
737 words

They said there was a monster who lived in the abandoned building tucked away on the back corner of campus. They said it was a horrible cross between a human and a spider, and that it ate students foolish enough to venture inside.

The official word said that the building was in an unsafe state of disrepair, and the only reason it hadn't been demolished was that it was tied up in the middle of an old property dispute. The structure and surrounding grounds were littered with warning signs, and the university disclaimed all responsibility for accidents that occurred when students chose to venture inside despite the warnings.

Ever the practical person, Kinjou favored the latter explanation. During all four years of his undergraduate degree, he had managed to avoid most of the rumors and late-night search parties that set out to find the monster. He had assumed it would only get better once he entered the doctoral program and was among an even more mature cohort.

He hadn't counted on the actions of the first-year students in the course he was TAing.

He had been running one of his weekly review sessions, but unlike most weeks, only one student had attended. He made a comment to that effect as they were finishing, and the student admitted that all of his friends had gone to the old, deserted building, but he had stayed behind because he was scared of the dark.

Kinjou barely waited to hear the end of the explanation before he ran out the door and across campus. In retrospect, he probably would have realized that was not the wisest course of action, but all he was thinking at the time was that he knew how dangerous old buildings could be, and he needed to find his students before something terrible befell them.

As he approached the building, he saw weak, bobbing lights in an upstairs window, as if a group were wandering around with flashlights. The door to the building was already ajar, and he slipped inside, calling out as he entered.

He received no reply, but he knew where the group was, and he made his way immediately up the stairs, testing the floor with each step and avoiding the rotten floorboards and fallen ceiling beams.

He finally caught up with the group at the far end of the second floor. He was about to yell out to them when they turned a corner, and the entire group screamed and ran back out of the house, most of them dropping their flashlights in fear.

Kinjou froze. In front of him, illuminated by the flashlights that shone from where they had fallen on the floor, was a massive, spiderlike creature. It was as large as he was, and even in the dim light, it's body and legs shimmered with a strange iridescence that put Kinjou in mind of an oil slick. Despite the spiderlike legs, its body and head seemed decidedly human. It took Kinjou a minute to realize that what he had at first thought was a large web behind the creature was actually it's hair fanning out in all directions.

Kinjou knew he should be terrified, but all he could think was that the creature was beautiful. He tried speaking, but the creature didn't seem to understand. He met its eyes and tried to convey all of his thoughts and feelings as he stepped forward.

The creature froze, but as he opened his arms and stepped forward again, it mirrored the gesture, and its hair stretched out towards him. They met in the middle of the room, the long strands of the monster's hair wrapping around his wrists and twining up his arms as they pulled him closer to the spider. He stroked the hairs as they coiled around him, and they reacted by squeezing him gently as if in a hug.

Far too soon, he was on the far side of the room face-to-face with the spider and securely cocooned in its seemingly endless hair. It lowered its head, and he felt the sharp bite of its needlelike teeth sinking into his shoulder just over his collarbone. He would have flinched away, but the creature's hair hugged him close, and he relaxed into the soft warmth that was spreading from his shoulder.

The spider raised its head and met his eyes again, and all Kinjou could think was "I love you."

thank you so much for this??? i love the overall creepy atmosphere and the urban legend/fairy tale vibe that the beginning gives off. it's not difficult for me to imagine this playing out like an old-school horror movie. Maki also sounds like the most lovely terrifying spider monster, i love that you kept the long hair and incorporated it into his spidery-ness?? the ending is also kind of sinister, even though Kinjou is all comfy and warm - i'm picturing him being brainwashed by Maki's bite or something like that *u*
