Chapter 7 Summary - Bad News

As the days go by, Wilbur grows ever fonder of his new friend, Charlotte. He even begins to understand her need for flies, and appreciates that she puts them to sleep before sucking their blood. In addition to Wilbur beginning to grow fonder of Charlotte, however; he is also simply beginning to grow.

Wilbur's growth is not lost on the oldest sheep, which always seems to be around to offer a nasty comment. This time, she is all too happy to report that Lurvy, Zuckerman, and even Fern's father Mr. Arable, are part of a "conspiracy" to kill Wilbur at Christmastime - she says they are just fattening him up. Wilbur is understandably upset and does not want to die. Charlotte, always a thinker, tells him to calm down and stop crying; she will come up with a plan.
