She calmed the horse down and grabbed a bow and three arrows. Kicking the horse lightly on the sides, Carri shot an arrow and hit it once again, near the bullseye. Cursing to herself, she shot at the next one and hit it. Carri smiled and went to the last one. She entirely missed and watched it fly off into the forest." Oops."
