Just like you were Trained to do

Itís never as easy as the pictures would have you believe. Nothing is ever so easy as insert wooden stake here, upward swing under the third and fourth rib. Break through skin and muscle, pierce any one of four chambers, turning the body to ash and dust. Back away from the explosion of dead flesh, hold your breath to avoid filling your lungs with airborne death.

Itís never easy when wet eyes stare back at you just as they did the moment that body took your innocence and heart in one long slow stroke.

Never easy, but you must try.
