She calls him Spider.
The world calls him a Jelvia, but now Beth wishes she never met him.
JELVIA: NOT HUMAN #3
Bethany Roberts was born into a privileged life, but all that was taken away when, at nine years old, a car crash killed her older brother, and her mother received life-changing injuries. Beth’s younger sister was too young to understand how the pressure affected their father and only saw him as a fun-time dad, spending money and giving them expensive holidays. But Beth was old enough to realise he was spending far beyond their means and drinking too much.
He lost them their beautiful home and lifestyle.
As Beth grew, she became a carer to both her parents and a mother to her sister, Lara. She gave up school and took menial jobs to keep a roof over their heads.
But it all came crashing down when Lara, now seventeen years old, became a statistic of the Jelvian onslaught on humankind. She disappeared.
And Beth, now twenty-five, has nothing to lose.
Nothing what so ever.
She is going to get her sister back.
