A Mystery in the Woods

by Kiya White aged 12

We both stood still
Eyes, hypnotised
Bright colours surrounding the kill
The animal bounced around
Creating an obvious trail
Hitting the hard and leafy ground
I lift my arrow and bow
He pulls it down
Ever so slowly
Whispering quietly in my ear:
Leave it alone
Instead of hitting the rear.
I can’t help but snigger
It scares the animal
It runs away quicker
We may go another day without food
but it was rare
a good mood
