The Actor

She watched the drama from a distance.

He watched her appear to have an interest in something.

She stood motionless.

He said nothing.

She watched the deer cross one field to another.

He watched her stand motionless.

She looked back and smiled, “I should be a hunter, the deer have no fear of me standing so close.”

He laughed, “The deer could not see you my dear, because you stand so perfectly motionless.”

She ran into his arms, “So you think I’m perfect?”

He looked into her eyes, “Only when standing perfectly still.”
