I don’t really want to meet any humans, like the ones that own this garden. They freak out when they see me or other spiders, and I don’t understand why. I’m more scared of those big monsters. Well, it’s a good thing I can bite them if I need to in self-defense. The reason I chose to live in the garden is that when other wolf spiders make their homes in the wood of human houses, the humans almost always kill them when they find them. So I’ll just stay in the garden, keeping the plants well, feeding myself, and avoiding the daytime-roaming humans. During the winter, the cold is too much for me, and there’s nothing to eat out in the garden, so I’ve gone indoors occasionally in secluded places in the humans’ house, like the basement, hoping I won’t be found.
