Character Connections: Zella Weaver
Featured in: Black Widow & Other Tales
Age in which the story takes place: 25
Inspiration: Zella was partially inspired by an actual black widow spider I saw crawling around the floor at my “night job” while working a midnight shift. She was also inspired by a photograph I saw in a hairstyle/beauty magazine and of course the character Abby on NCIS. 😉
Also, I created this story on the heels of the final Harry Potter book, infatuated by the animagus characters like Sirius Black.
Zella is a goth chick, and fantasy fan with a secret she hides from her co-workers. She is a spider animagus.
She has her eye on her prey—a guy a little bit out of her league, who she flirts with in the office. She knows they’re not each other’s type. He’s a little bit out of her league—but that’s what poses a fun challenge to her.
When she sees him zoom off in a convertible with some blonde, she is crushed. But, in this story…
That’s where the fun begins for this gal!
