“Why archery?” Dee wanted to know.
“Why not? Come on, Dee, it’ll be fun!”
Ryo was so enthusiastic Dee couldn’t say no. Besides, his lover was right, it would probably be fun to try something neither of them had done before.
By the end of the class, Dee was feeling quite pleased with himself. He hadn’t scored a bull’s-eye, but he’d hit the inner rings of the target several times. Amazingly he’d proved a better shot with a bow and arrow than Ryo, whose first shot had missed the target completely, falling so far short that he’d been reduced to helpless laughter.
“You might want to aim a little higher,” Dee had teased.
“I think I need to work on my upper body strength,” Ryo had replied when he’d recovered enough breath to speak. “This is a lot harder than it looks.”
Despite Ryo’s poor start, Dee could see the other man was having a good time and was glad he’d agreed to his partner’s suggestion.
“We should do this again,” he said as they returned their bows.
“Yes, and maybe bring Bikky next time. Think I’ll stick with my automatic for catching the bad guys though; it’s probably safer.”
