about this story

'The distant, lonely sky. It really is beautiful.' I thought as I continued to walk through the forest. Out of the corner of my eye something shuffles through the dirt. "Hm?" I say as I look behind me. A fuzzy spider about the size of my hand inches toward me. It strenuously drags two legs behind it. The small creature stops at my feet and looks up at me. "Your hurt." I say to it as I reach down and pick it up. The spider snuggles into my shoulder like a wolf pup to its mother. "I guess that means that your not leaving anytime soon." I say. "Well if you stay your going to need a name. How about... Trajan?" I ask the small creature. It just snuggles closer. I decide to keep walking until I reach a strange opening. Trajan is sitting on my shoulder, cradled in my long black hair. A holly bush with a single bud reaches towards the sunlight, arduously. I walk over to it and lightly touch the small bud. Suddenly, the bud glows a golden orange and starts blooming into a white rose. Trajan looks at it as if it was a preposterous little bird. To me, it wasn't like the other pretentious rose bushes I had seen. It was a beautiful and innocent little bud. Once it had fully opened, it burst into lilac flames and turned into a purple flower with a fiery orange center. Trajan squeaks and falls off my shoulder. And I laugh as I pick him up and place him back on my shoulder.
