    Picks up a bow. She was used to other weapons, but she decided she should learn other skills. This would be her first time using a bow. She knocked an arrow and pulled back. When she released the arrow went half-way wobbling. She tried again and it hit the target, but it didnt stick. She tried one more time and hit the target. "Yes!" she shreiked happily. She kept trying until she could hit more than the edge. She smiled

    Puts on a blindfold. She plays a song on her flute. All of the dummys from the raining arena get up and start drawing steel weapons. They rush at her. She pulls out a bow and notches an arrow. The first dummy falls with an arrow to the eye. Dummy two and three fall with an arrow to theyre stomach. A dummy gets really close. She backflips and splits it perfectly in half while in the air with an arrow.
