I see the deer.

They're so dumb.

I stay quiet, he can't be aware of my presence

I calm my nerves

Clear my mind

It's hard at first

My mind goes crazy

Then it gets clear

I see only the deer

The trees are gone

the leaves...


I pull out an arrow

This must be fast.

I put it on my bow.

And now it is the time.

My heart beats

I can only hear my slow breath.

I breathe in

breathe out.

And I shoot.
