Chapter Five – Complete
Jelnaya: No Thoughts of Courtship
The monster did have the high ground, but had to have been acting on instincts and not intelligence. I had not been directly fighting it. Most of my only attempts to stop the creature were by zipping arrows in its direction. While I had inherited rather good reflexes, the animal was fast. What it should have realized however was that it had not killed me yet, and I was not running from it.
