They were destined to meet. The hunter stalking silently through the woods for tender meat. Crouching in the shadows, hidden from the heat of the sun, he watches. On feet so silent that even the keenest ears cannot hear, he inches towards his prey. He pounces, his heart beating in joy at the fear reflected in her eyes. His sharp teeth tear and chew. He growls in delight, this is his first fresh kill for the year. From behind the bushes, the other silent hunter takes aim and shoots the bear. As his friends look on, beer in hand the hunter poses next to his fallen trophies. The deer and the bear.

Dang this was a hard one...

I think you did a great job! I agree, you made it look easy. BTW, I love Janet Evanovich too, she's so funny!

Where is it that people "meet." And I mean literally, not by the way of their "feet." It's impossible to know how anyone may "feel," after all isn't life a sort of movie "reel." And layered like an onion through which we all must "peel" (sp). I tried, it is hard.
